Moody Monday

Once again, Mama has taken FUREVER to help us blog!!  We have been furry busy purring & purraying for all of our sick furiends.  Plus we've been havin to take care of Mama for the last week...she's been barkin like a seal (that's what she calls it anyway).  At first she scared us right off her lap when she started makin that horrible noise!  Now we pretty much stay put unless she has to run to the litterbox room, somethin about not bein able to hold her water when she coughs.  You guys know how weird beans are.
We're hopin she'll start doin better on the bloggie, but you know how that goes...she always says she will but it doesn't happen.  Guess we can always hope.

Happy Birthday Sammy!

Happy 9th Birthday to our Sammy!!  See how bad Mama's been slacking?  This is the latest picture she could find of him...oh well, at least she remembered his birthday.

Happy Veterans Day!

We also want to thank our furiends for the purrs, purrayers & well wishes for our Auntie Pam.  Her surgery went furry well & the bean v-e-t said she was doing fine.  He got all of the tumor out, for which we are all thankful.  She was still sleeping when Mama & Auntie Lori had to leave, but we are purraying for a quick healing.  Thank you all again, it means the world to all of us.

Purrs & Purrayers needed!!

We know we haven't been blogging or commenting much lately & maybe we've lost a few furiends because of it (which we hate), but Mama has been struggling.  She says it's too hard to pretend efurrything's ok.
We really need purrs, grrs, purrayers, tail wags & prayers for our Auntie Pam.  She has been fighting one cancer after another for the last 25 years & she's kept beating it.  But, cancer has reared it's ugly head again & Auntie Pam has to have a cancerous tumor removed from her tummy.  It's going to be tricky for the bean v-e-t to remove because she has had several abdominal surgeries & the last one they had to work hard to "piece" her back together.
Mama & Auntie Lori are going to St. Louis with Auntie Pam today so they can be with her for her surgery on Thursday.  So, if all our furiends that we have left could send up purrs & purrayers & maybe get your beans to say prayers for Auntie Pam, we would appreciate it greatly.
Thank you & we love you all dearly!

Purrs for Parker

We just found out that our furiend Parker has cancer & will be going to the Bridge long before we're ready for her to.  We are heartbroken for her, her `rents & all of us, her furiends.

We're stil here...

We've been laying low for the past week or so cause we're under attack!!  Mama says it's just walnuts falling from the trees.  We don't know what walnuts are, but somebody is lobbing these big green balls at our house!  They do it all day & all night...there's just no peace around here.  We are sooo glad we're indoor kitties, can't imagine trying to dodge those crazy things!!  Sometimes it sounds like they're gonna come through the's really scary around here!!

Purring for Miss Paula...

Miss Paula had a cancerous lesion removed from her tummy last week & has to go to the bean v-e-t to have more tissue removed.  We are purring, purraying & Mama is praying that all goes well & Miss Paula is cancer-free when she gets home.

Meet our new furiend...

You may or may not remember that 3 months ago our furiend Toby went to the Bridge.  He owned the beans that Mama works for...
Anyhoo, They found a new kitty to love.  This is Millie.  Mama says that she is the sweetest, most loving kitty she has ever seen!  Hey!  What are we, chopped liver??  We still like Millie, but boy are we hissed off at Mama!!!

Gotcha Day & Auntie ML

Today is Fessy's 6th Gotcha Day!!  As usual, Mama didn't have time to work up a party but at least she remembered.  She's says it's hard to believe it's been 6 years already since he came home with her.

We are also celebrating Auntie ML this weekend!  She does so much for all of us & our beans & she deserves all of our thanks & love!!  If it weren't for Auntie ML, we wouldn't be blogging (not that Mama posts furry often).  She helped Mama pay for Fessy's v-e-t bill when we almost lost him due to nasty ole fleas.  Then, she & Auntie Deb set up the bloggy for us so we could meet our furiends we'd only read about.  When we lost Joey, Auntie ML helped Mama so much, she understood what Mama was going through.  So, Auntie ML, thank you so furry much for all you do...we all love you furry much!!

More sad news...

Our precious Misses Peach joined her husband-cat Mickey at the Bridge.  She will be furry missed by all.  Our love & purrayers go out to her family.

Sweet little Beignet has cancer so he won't be going to Mom Paula's with Truffle.  We're sending lots of healing thoughts to him

Our 3rd Blogoversary!!

We all know Mama is getting old & forgetful, but she was shocked to see on the CB that it was our Blogoversary.  She said it just snuck right up on her...yeah & if it had been a snake, it woulda bit her!
She's always been slow but we don't know if the heat fried her brain (what there is of it) or if she's just losing her mind completely.  She's forgotten birthdays, gotcha days & now's gotta stop! 
We haven't gotten to pawticipate in much or have good pawties or anything this year because of her.  It's official, we need a new mama...anybuddy out there want 3 (mostly) good kitties??

Purring for Misses Peach

Please send up purrs, purrayers or tail wags for our dear furiend Misses Peach.  She isn't feeling very well right now.

Monday, July 25, 2011

Blah, blah, blah

Mama's had the blahs so we haven't been around much.  Between the loss of so many of our furiends lately & the major hots we've been having, we can't get her to do much.  So please don't give up on us & maybe we can get Mama to start helping us blog more...

Monday, July 11, 2011

RIP Jack

Our furiend Jack was helped to the Bridge Monday.  Another sad day for the CB.

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

We have the sads.....

 Our eyes are leaking as we have lost 2 of our good furiends in the last 2 days. 
Annie & Whicky, you will be missed.  We are sending much love to your beans.  RIP precious furiends.

Happy 4th of July!!

Mama is in BIG trouble!!

Mama actually forgot it was Fes' birthday!!  If she hadn't read it on the Cat Blogosphere bloggie, there probably wouldn't be a new post.  We are seriously thinking of telling her she's fired & looking for a new Mama.  One that remembers important dates!!

Anyway, Fes is 7 years old today & we are having a MAJOR house trashing party!!  So, come one, come all & lets teach our worthless mama a lesson!!

Our furiend has gone to the Bridge.....

Our furiend Toby was helped to the Bridge yesterday morning.  The v-e-t said that he most likely had bladder cancer.  Mama was furry sad when she got to work & found out.  She couldn't get leaky eyed though cause the little sticky beans don't know yet that Toby's not coming back.
Mama's really gonna miss him because other than the Mom & Dad bean, she was the only one Toby let pet him.  He was not a furry social cat.
We know he's in a better place & not in pain anymore.  That's what's most important.

Take-It-Back Tuesday

Mama's reporting of Toby's journey to the Bridge was a bit premature. Seems that Toby changed his mind about going & started eating & drinking! He's still got a ways to go...he lost LOTS of weight & he is almost 16, but he seems to be feeling much better.

We're sorry that we made efurrybuddy sad & we thank you so much for your loving thoughts. But hey! It's good news that Toby is still with us!!

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Sad Friday...

Our dear furiend Toby is going to be helped to the Bridge today. He told his beans that it was time to let him go. Mama got to see him yesterday for a bit & told him goodbye. He will be furry missed.

Thank you furiends for the purrs & good wishes for Toby. Sometime, when Mama isn't so leaky-eyed, we'll have her tell you more about him.

Toby, we are sending you on your journey with many purrs & much love. Peaceful travels dear furiend, until we meet again.

Purrs needed....

The beans that Mama work for are owned by a kitty named Toby. He has been furry sick & they are afraid that he may have to be helped to the Bridge. So, if you could send purrs, purrayers, tail wags or what efur we would appreciate it. Most likely Toby's beans will be taking him to a "real" v-e-t today. Our v-e-t is nice but he's pretty much just a country v-e-t & mostly works on livestock. His office doesn't have a lab or equipment to really test for problems. So, again, all purrs will be appreciated.

Happy 5th Gotcha Day Emma!!!

Most beans do "before & after" pics....Mama does "after & before" pics. *sigh*

Anyway, Emma's been with us for 5 years...time flies by pretty fast. We still remember when Mama brought little Emma home, she looked like a bite-sized snack! She hated Fes on sight & still isn't very fond of him. If he gets too close to her, she still growls & hisses at him! She & I (Sammy) get along OK, although she's gotten pretty fiesty with me lately.

What with Mama being sick she didn't feel like planning a party, but she's goin back to work today sooo, efurrybuddy can come on over & party while Mama's gone. She bought a big bag of food & we have plenty of temp-tay-shons so we shouldn't go hungry! What Mama don't know won't hurt us, right??

Update on Mama: she had her eye v-e-t visit today & no vision loss!! Although the shingles still have to run their course, the eye v-e-t said it is unlikely to affect Mama's eye if it hasn't by now. Thank you so much for your purrs, tail wags & good thoughts!!

Monday, May 23, 2011

Shingles suck & a very special day.....

Mama is sooo ready for the shingles to be gone! She's been pretty sick with them so we haven't been able to check on our furiends (*sigh*). She goes to her eye v-e-t on Tuesday to make sure her vision wasn't affected, so if you could send up a couple more purrs....

Now, for the best part of this's Auntie ML's birthday!!! We want to wish her the Happiest Birthday ever!! We love you Auntie ML!!

Purrs for Mama please

Mama has the dreaded shingles, she says they belong on houses NOT beans!! She's pretty miserable but the big worry is that they might spread to her eye. So we wanna ask for purrs, purrayers & tail wags for her.
Mama's vision isn't the greatest anyway & her "good" eye is the one being threatened. So, if efurrybuddy could spare a thought or two for her, we would appreciate it.

Mama's in trouble!

Is there a kitty abuse hotline?? I need one to report Mama! See, we were layin in bed together, she was lovin on Sammy & I (Fes) decided to get in on the action. Well, bout the time I get ready for my skritches, Sammy decides to put the bitey on Mama's arm...then she bopped me right on the nose!! Oh she claims it was an accident but it was abuse I tell ya! Anybuddy got a number I can call??

Monday, Monday

Sorry we haven't been around much. Between all of our furiends that have run off to the Bridge, all of our furiends that are sick & having work done on our house has had Mama stressed. Then when precious Shell went to the Bridge, Mama lost the will to blog. Or comment much. So, we talked her into posting about the work we had done. We all know she's reall crappy at getting pictures to line up right on our bloggie, so please forgive her cause she doesn't know what she's doing. This is the lovely kitchen ceiling before all manner of strange beans came to fix it. It's been like this for a couple years.

This is the litterbox room ceiling. This happened last summer before Mama got the roof fixed. Actually this put a fire under Mama's butt to get the roof fixed.

The litterbox room ceiling after the strange beans left. Mama still has to paint it, but it looks much better.

The kitchen ceiling after. It looks sooo much better & we're glad all this work is finished!

We were NOT happy when 6 strange male beans came into our house last Friday. We added greatly to Mama's stress level. Mama was in the kitchen talking to some of the strange beans, then she came into the living room. (We also got a new front door) She just about had a heart attack because the beans had the front door open & she hadn't put us kitties in the bedroom yet....and no kitties were to be seen. She ran outside & no kitties could be seen out there either. She found Sammy pretty quick behind the couch but didn't find me (Festus) or Emma. She looked efurry where (or so she thought) & was frantic because she thought we got out. When all the strange beans left, 4 hours later, Em & I decided to come out from under the couch!! She didn't think we could get our fat bootys under there but we did! We got LOTS of loves & treats cause she was so happy to see us!!!

Mama says this is way too long & she hopes efurrybuddy reads it. Hey, we're just trying to make up for lost time, right?

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Happy Birthday Emma!!

Hi efurrybuddy! It's my 5th birthday today & you're all invited to come party with us!!

Mama has to go to work at 1:00 & won't be home till 10:30 tonight, so we can do what efur we want....whatcha waiting for?? Let's par-tay!!!

Purring for Sweet Praline

Please send purrs to our furiends Sweet Praline & Mom Paula. They got some bad news from the v-e-t & need lots of purrs & purrayers.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

So, is anybody up for a house trashing party??

It's Ba-ack....

Guess winter isn't ready to go just yet. It started snowing about 3:00 yesterday afternoon.....not what Mama wanted for her birthday! But she has to admit that it does look pretty.

She did get a new heater for her
birthday. She watched 2 guys install the new heater, run new gas line, re-vent the water heater & "fix" our kitchen heater. it only took them a little over 11 hours.
And where were we during all that time? We were shut up in the human litterbox room. For. Over. 11. Hours. NOT a good thing for us!! We scratched on the door, stuck our paws under to try to open the door & we meowed as loud as we could. Sure, we had food, water & poo boxes, but really? Over 11 hours in 1 room, that's just cruel. And one of the guys is coming back tomorrow to "fix" the "fixed" heater again. Guess where we're gonna be??

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Thankful Thursday

What a difference 2 weeks & a 40-45 degree temperature rise makes!! Our 17" of snow is pretty much history & Mama is furry happy about that! She's even happier cause it's supposed to be in the mid-60's today!!!

Friday, February 11, 2011

Finally Friday

Sammy & Emma sharing a sun spot. Sammy is watching ice & snow fall off the roof next door. It has been very cold here but we are supposed to start warming up, thank goodness! Maybe even 60 degrees next week!!! We were at -6 last night so 60 sounds positively tropical!

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

The blizzard is over for us

Thankfully our weather people got a little dramatic with their predictions.
We still ended up with about 17" of snow on the ground...way more than Mama wanted!
These are just a few pics Mama took this afternoon. Now we get to look forward to a low of -10 F tonight, yay us!

Monday, January 31, 2011

The icy hand is gone...for now

UPDATE: Now we're under a blizzard warning & are expecting up to 26 inches of snow!! Mama is freakin out!

When Mama got home from work Friday night, the icicle had fallen on the ground & broke into a bunch of pieces. It was too dark then to take a picture of it & she forgot about it till Saturday afternoon. It was too late then cause the temp got up to 40 degrees & things were kind of melty.

It will probably be back soon, though. We are supposed to start getting freezing rain today & 12-18 inches of snow Tuesday & Wednesday. We are already under a winter storm warning until Wednesday.

We don't really care, we're indoor cats but Mama is not happy at all. She keeps wandering around the house muttering " I hate winter, I HATE winter!!" She did go shopping yesterday to get us some more food so we're prepared. Mama better have enough of her own food cause we're not sharing!

The icy hand of winter...

When will it end??
