100th Post!

This is my 100th post. This one right here.So that mean I need to announce a winner. Ta da da DA (that was my attempt at a drumroll). The winner of my contest is Artsy Catsy! The Siamese Rescue Center made a mistake with the order so the bed is in the mail, but as soon as it comes, we'll forward it to them. Thank you everykitty that participated.
Sophie here: Look at what my new valentine, Castor, from Meezer Brothers gave ME!

Castor is such a cute valentine! He's one of Stella's babies. So that makes him a true blue blooded meezer. And he wants ME as his valentine. I'm so very honored because I'm just a formerly feral street kitten. He wrote that my furs are beautiful and he wants to help groom

We're Looking for Love



All of us except Kali have contacted Queen Snickers (above) the moderator of the Love Cafe. We are in search of LOVE. Kali says that she's happy enough with her simple life of rest, eat and mommy time. If any of you are looking for a kittyfriend, you need to head over the Cafe and leave your info. Who knows maybe you and one of us will decide to spend some serious snuggle time together.
Lovingly yours,
Tyler, Cookie, Jake and Sophie

Good Bye Sweet Boy

Everyone at our house is very sad with the news that we lost a good friend yesterday. Ceasar crossed over the bridge during his sleep sometime during Saturday night. Although we are grateful that he was able to go peacefully in his sleep and we believe that the mancat is now young and healthy once again. Our hearts go out to his family and to Prinnie his beloved sister. We found the below picture and quote on his blog Ceasar and Princess' Happy Place We pray for Prinnie too who has to live out her remaining years without her dear sweet brother here with her.



"We are brother and sister and so close and loving to each other.
We treasure the love and care we have received from our family for over 16 years!!!
If one of us should leave and go to the bridge,
it will be a difficult thing for the one remaining.
We are almost always together, and when we are not, we do not stay apart for long."

NOW , MOM!

Jake: Oh, I am just so mad at my mom. Yesterday she came home with two big bags from our favorite but seldom used pet store. She went on and on about how she bought us new foods and how good they were for us and how tasty they were. Lies, lies, lies. She's a big fat liar. As soon as the big hand hit the twelve and the little hand was on the five I started hollering for MY stinky goodness. Hollering is very important. I'm the only one who knows how to do it and I do it well. She comes in and excitedly opens up a can of the new stuff. I'm thinking, "Good Mom, good girl. C'mon move just a little bit faster. OK, put it down, put it down. Me firs,t me first." And then I stuck my muzzle in it and take a big chomping bite...BLUCK, BLUCK, BLUCKITY, BLUCK. I ran out of the kitchen with my tail between my legs. I think she was trying to poison me. So I give her 30 mins. or so to see that I wasn't going to eat the crap and then I started hollering again. "Where's my Max Cat Gourmet Classics Salmon and Whitefish Entree, please"? But then Mom did something unexpected, gone was the 'OK honey I know that your hungry.' And in it's place was, "Get your butt in here and eat this food. I paid a fortune for it." And it was the same exchange between us for hours. With her adding tidbits like, "I bought a case of it," and "I bought the 13 oz size." Now I ask you kitty friends. Is any of this my problem? SHE bought the wrong food and won't admit her mistake. And that kissface Sophie didn't help by eating a few bites. So kittyfriends can you help argue my case. Tell my mom that she needs to feed me the RIGHT stinky goodness RIGHT NOW!

Mom here: The new food is Innova's EVO chicken and turkey canned food. I feed them all a can last month as a taste test and they gobbled it down. But since then I bought some of the Max Cat canned food on sale and I think they're taste buds were spoiled. I'm going to give it another try after a few days without any wet food. They are eating the crunchy Innova EVO without a problem, thank goodness.

Thank you, Thank you!

Making new friends is just about the best part of blogging. Our new friends, Trixie and Pyewacket from Topcatrules honored Kali and me with the following award earlier this week.


We will pass this one along to China Cat. We met her during Secret Paw season this Winter. Yeah, to meeting new friends.

Before that Karl, from The Cat Realm, gave me "Life Is Like Hell without Friends Award".




We are going to award this to all three kitties and the woofie at Camie's Kitties. These are more new friends who started blogging just last month. We've really enjoyed reading their blog.

Mom doesn't know how to put things in the borders yet, so she hesitated to write about these awards. I insisted that she let me write about them so that I can say thank you. Also, my vane-side wants everyone to know that I got TWO awards!!! Yippee, Yeah, Wow, Neato, Fantastic, Superb!!! I haven't seen one of these in a heck of a long time. I thought maybe it was my fish breath. Maybe once you've been around a couple of months nobody cares anymore. But NO, I got TWO awards in one week. I'm giving Mom an ultimatum about learning how to display my accolades in a more lasting manner. She better learn how to do that margin thingy that I see others doing. I also want her to post in color and use different fonts. I've been patient enough. I know where she sleeps and I know where she leaves her uncovered water cup. And I know it grosses her out when she finds one of us licking the ice in her cup...
Thanks for the awards guys.
Hope you all feel appreciated, with or without the awards.
Peace, love and purrs,
Tyler

We Hope to See You There!

Seven Weird Things

I've been tagged by Chancy & Ernie's Voice to reveal "7 Weird Things About Me". Chancy is a very new friend of mine. I'm honored that she wants to get to know me better. I found out that she can easily be frightened. Please visit her blog and say 'hi'.

The rules are: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share seven random weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. Tyler: I am Mommy's "Meant to Be" baby. You see, I'm not the kitty that she picked out at the shelter. Mommy had chosen my brother, but there was a mix-up and the very smart shelter worker put me in the PTU instead of my brother. When Mom got home, she called the shelter and they asked her, "Is there a problem with the cat you did take home?" And she of course said, "No, I guess not." And she KEPT me. I don't blame Mommy for picking my brother by mistake. We looked a lot a like. He was just a little bit more mellow than I was. He was just as cute as me, so I know that he found his real forever home too.

2. Cookie: I don't like Temptations. The only treat I like is fish flakes.

3. Jake: I have a super-dooper nose. I can find treats almost anywhere they're hidden. I will jump up to very high places.Mom puts the treats in four sets of ziplock freezer bags. I can tear open each of the bags and also open the bag of Temptations. I always share the open bag with my other siblings who like them.

4. Tyler: I also have a good sense of smell. I use mine to seek out bad smells. If any kitty yackes or leaves another type of accident I immediatly try to cover up the offensive odor with anything nearby. One of the worst smells is coffee. Mommy actually yells at me when I whap her coffee cup over trying to cover up the offensive stink. She guards her morning mugs very close to her every morning.

5. Jake: I love to tear up paper. I love killing rolls of paper towels. I wrap my whole body around the roll, give it bunny kicks and rip it to shreds. No roll of towels is safe in this house.

6. Kali: I only stay in the family room now that I'm an old geezer lady. I will walk to the kitchen to eat and drink, but that's it. Mom had to give me a litterbox in my domain because I stopped using the other ones. (Now all those young cats, use MY box instead of the four other boxes out there.) I'm the only cat that doesn't sleep on mom's bed. It's been years since I've been able to jump on the bed. Mom doesn't buy me the stairs that they have now because the bedroom is just too far away. It's okay because there are just too many cats up there for me to be happy being there anyway. I like a lot of space. Opps, did I just tell you two weird facts about me? Oh well, at 18, I'm allowed to do whatever the heck I want.

7. Cookie: I'm the only cat that sleeps on Mom's tummy. Tyler used to try it, but he's too heavy and mom can't breath well. But I'm a very light and dainty girl so I get to stay. When I'm on her tummy, Mommy talks to me about her day.

We're not going to tag anyone because We've read that most kitties have already responded to this meme. If you'd like to do it, then please help yourself. Please let us know if you do chose to use it. We want to read what's different about you.

Everykitty and every bean have a wonderfully bright day today.
Peace, love and purrs,
Tyler and family

The Truth about Tyler



Kali: I want everycat to know that Tyler isn't always the wonderful brother that you here about. With the younger cats he's all lovey dovey, but with me he's a constant pain. You don't believe me? Well, let me give you an example. For months now my favorite sleeping spot was a my cat bed on the couch. Just last week, I was all snuggled up in my warm bed and I look up and Tyler is standing over me. He tells me to get out. I hissed up a storm, but did he care? No, I jumped down and wend to the catbed by the tv. The next night, I look up and he's kicking me out of this bed too. Mom sees what's happening so she fills the family room with beds and comfy spots. When I find the down throw on the other side of the couch, I'm in heaven. (That's where I am when she took this picture of me.) If you guessed that Tyler soon came over and kicked me out of that spot, you're right!

Now I'm an old lady. My bones ache. All this moving around is difficult for me. The truth is that Tyler is asserting himself because he's jealous of the times I spend in Mom's lap. I can't help it if she loves me more than she loves him. I was here first. He may make me move from bed to bed, but he'll never be the top cat in my eyes. That's my job.

Now you understand why my life is complicated by the boy?
