Look What Will Be in our Mailbox Soon!!!


Milly's mom contacted us to let us know that Kali will be receiving her quilt soon. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?!? It's supposed to be Kali's because mom wanted to honor her at 18, being the oldest amongst us.

I don't blog much about her because she is well... a pain. She doesn't accept my authority. She'll commander mom's lap on a whim. I have organized rest times, but when Kali jumps up, she just bats me off. Mom always asks me to be respectful because of her age. She even tries to boss mom around. She's very picky about where she may be touched. If she's to be brushed she expects constant treats. If the treats slow down she flicks her tail and then puts the bitey on mom's hand. Mom even gives her excuses. Mom adopted Kali when she lived in an apartment that didn't allow cats. Well, they did, but before mom declared Kali, they changed the rules. Then when they found out mom had Kali they insisted she be declawed. Well, mom went had the procedure done without researching it. Older and wiser, mom would now just move, if she were ever in a similar situation. She feels very terribly guilty for maiming my big sister. Because of that guilt, Kali gets away with EVERYTHING! Mom hopes that anyone in her situation would also move. As much trouble or hassle as it seems to be, it is far better to be inconvienced than to allow your loved one be mutilated. Don't allow yourself to make the mistake she made. It will haunt you.

We'll see how good my big sis will be at sharing her Gizzy quilt. It's so pretty! I want to be first! I kinda hope Kali doesn't share so I can lobby my mom for my own quilt. With my black furs, I've been told that I look good with ANY color, but I want mancat colors! Does anyone know what mancat colors are? Mom tells me that I'm behind the times, that there isn't such a thing as "mancat" colors. I think she says that cuz she's a girl and she doesn't know any better. Any suggestions on what colors should be on my Gizzy quilt?

Thank you!
Tyler

I am a mancat and I think those colors are great.

I hope she is nice about sharing. We have a quilt (not a gizzy quilt, but a quilt all the same) and we let Georgia use it mostly.

That is a beautiful quilt! I love the colors.Kali is lucky.Maybe you can sleep on it when Kali is on yer Mom's lap.

Black does go good with anything. Being a girl cat, I'm not sure what colors would be manly mancat colors for you.

That is a beautiful Gizzy quilt! I love the bright colours. :) That is a wonderful gift for Kali. :) I hope she shares her quilt. I love my Gizzy quilt. I'm thinking my mom may have to order one for my little brother though, when he arrives, so we can each have one!

I don't think there is such a thing as "Mancat colours". I like the colours of your (Kali's) Gizzy quilt. :)

That is very very pretty and it looks wonderful! Congratulations, Kali!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Blue is definately a man cat color. Except for like a baby power blue. That is for lady cats. But a nice deep blue is for mancats. and Purple maybe.

What a gorgeous quilt.

Your Mommy is a very smart bean now. My Mommy learned too!
Anyway, Kali has one good looking Gizzy. If it were me Tyler, I'd let Millie's Mom create something for you. She is very talented and when she puts a quilt together - well WOWIE! I know, that's what I did and mine came out soooo pretty!

Daisy said...

That is a very beautiful Gizzy quilt. I am pretty sure that pink is a good Mancat color. Well, it is my favorite color, anyway.

Caesar and Princess said...

I think whe you are 18, you soooo deserve a quilt like that!
This is the prettiest quilt ever!

Forty Paws said...

That's a beautiful quilt! We luf the flutterbyes on it!

Bow is declawed on the front. Maw had it done before she was older and wiser also. Now she knows better than to mutilate a cat in the interest of material items.

This is really beautiful~!
I hope your sister could share this beautiful quilt with you :)

poppyq said...

Dats a nice quilt for Kali. Maybe your mom will save more green monies for you to have a manly one?

The Crew said...

Black goes with everything Tyler, so you'll look good laying on any quilt color.

The Cat Realm said...

I personally think that pink is the best mancat color for a black cat! If you are not comfortable with pink the next best thing would be purple, and then midnight blue. But I think a black mancat looks the best in bright pink! If you'd wear anything pink and I hadn't met Ruis - I would fall for you!
And don't forget the Dare - only one more day until voting begins!

I think that is a great quilt. Very pretty colors. hmmmmm I think your black furs do go well with any colors you want. Mommy likes me on bright blues and greens so she can see my handsomeness better. Maybe those colors could be on your quilt.

That is one beautiful quilt! Fit for a queen, namely Queen Sophie. Mancat colors maybe are earthtones, but black looks good with any color.

The Furry Kids said...

That is a pretty quilt. I hope that Kali hogs it so that you get your own. I think that mancat colors are you know, the manly colors of royal blue and red and green. I think you would look good in any color, though.

That's a beauty!

Skeeter And LC said...

I haf been thinkin of gettin a Gizzy myself, an haf been plannin what I would want. For what its worth, I think picture parts should be bold colors in simple patternz, the non-picture parts should be solid colors (maybe wif little background patterns, no square should be too busy(), and I would want basic colors.

I got nuffin against a pink butterfly or a teal cricket, ya know? Jus so they are kinna solid-lookin... But I'm not sure I would want any colors so vague as "Mountain Meadow" or "Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown" if ya unnerstan.

MOL!

Dearest Tyler! It is so nice for Kali to get such a beautiful gizzy quilt. You are a good tolerant brother. I hope you do not think me too ungracious of a kitty for taking such a long time to return your visit. You can only imagine how happy I was to see you come cheer me on while I was so very sick. Mommy was heartbroken and thought for sure I would not regain any of my spirit and was prepared for the worst. But I was worth a small miracle. With your purrrayers and some good medicine, I have regained my strength day by day. Mommy would not have made it through her worries about me without your comfort. Each night we keep you in our prayers and wish you endless Blessings this Thanksgiving season.
Love and hugs from our house to yours, Miss Peach and the mommy
