Time to Get Away

Hi, furriends ~

My little hobbit house...it doesn't really exist except in my mind, but every once in a while, I need to escape. A nap doesn't really do it - too short. You wake up and you're back to square one.

If you have a place to go to either in person or in your mind, it's a good way to escape the boredom that gets to us every so often. No matter how many toys, trees, visitors, pats on the head, variety in our food or bird tv, squirrel tv, bee tv or neighbors, we get bored.

So, here I am in a place that's quiet, gentle on the nerves, and completely in my mind. When I get so this doesn't do it anymore, I don't know what'll happen.  Maybe you have some suggestions?

Let's hear 'em!

(Isn't this place cute? - Oooh, I think I have a new neighbor!)

My Beautiful Sisfur

Hi, furriends!

You want to meet a beautiful kitty?

Here she is..our Anastasia who left us about four years ago. She was the most easygoing cat I've ever known. A soft bubble of fur, she brightened my days and I miss her. The anniversary of her passing is this coming Thursday. She died right here at home, full of love, at the age of 16.

Anastasia Marie Nadine Delilah..we keep your purrs in our hearts always along with memories of  cuddles so affectionate.


She would often read to me...just kidding!



Who can forget my buddy Tinker here on the left. He had a thing for Anastasia but she wasn't interested. They were the two senior kitties in the family, Tinker repeatedly trying to win her affections. She must have felt something because she joined him at the Bridge less than four months after he went.

While kitties spend their lives, or at least part of them with us since we're all adopted, we know there's always plenty of love and we're happy. 

See ya again someday, guys!

No Labor Today, So We'll Play!

Hello, furriends!

I'm so happy we have a holiday right now, I can't tell you!

The housekeep is off somewhere which means we have the whole house to ourselves, Bridget, Penny and I. I don't think things will change much, just we'll have peace and food is readily available until she shows up this evening.

When Bridget and I get along, we like to play with our ball toy and it's a lot of fun.


If the ball rolls right, it's Bridget's. If it rolls left, it's my turn! Funny how it always stays on the track and never slips out. I guess if it did, we wouldn't know whose turn it was!

Hope you all have a fun day and a good week ahead! 

Purrs and nosetaps,

Tom, Bridget and Penny xxx

Something in the Way It Moved..!!

 Hey, I thought if I ignored Monday, it would go away..

NO!! It's still here..

Guys, it's good to say hello to all of you on this first day of the work snooze week!
I came across this photo and it prompted a question: What the heck was I looking at here?

Do you ever come across a pic your catmom or dad or somebody else took and you wonder
what was going on?

In this case, was it a bug, a strange sound, something weird like the pillow wasn't really a pillow at all?


I must've held my breath, kept my eyes sharp and my ears sharper and looks like I'm ready to give whatever it is plenty of room (either that or me outta there, hahaha!)

Have a good week and keep an eye out. You never know when an innocent object might come to life!!

Plush Lusciousness

Hello furriends!

Just like humans, sometimes we cats just feel like a million bucks. I don't know what it is, maybe it's how the sun strikes our furs, or how we look when we're freshly brushed, but we feel good when we look good!

Here's my freshly brushed, sunny outlook selfie to cheer your Monday!




 

Autumn is coming! Already the days are shorter and the breezes from the outside crisper..!

Have a good week, everyone!

A Week for Penny & Birdie

Hi, furriends!!

This Monday belongs to Penny and her birdie. One of the most fun toys for all of us is the birdie at the end of a wand. The housekeep swings it around and we try to catch it. Lots of times we don't but then we outfox her and turn real quick and pounce!!


Penny likes the birdie, but also wants to chew on the wand. I think she just likes to play with anything that moves..!! There's this real thin belt that gets slid along the floor, and Penny goes after that, too. There's never a shortage of toys. They're always coming into the house like bouncy balls and toy mice with extra catnip which we got from Target.

I'm still getting my glaucoma drops in the right eye which stays closed a good bit after. I hate going through this, but I'm told if I don't, the pressure will get too intense and not good for me or my eye. So, here's to you kids (as I'm winking at you!!)



All for now. If things got any more exciting, I wouldn't know what to do with myself!

A Tribute

Dear Furriends ~

There's no doubt that whether it's our blogs or other social media venues, we get closer to some furriends more than others. I've never really thought about why that's so. It just happens. All of you who regularly visit, we consider precious furriends and we know we can count on you to stop by and say hello..

We lost one of our furriends this week to the big "C." What the heck is taking so long to figure out how to handle the devastating bugger? Two of our own family members - Anastasia and Tinker - both went to the Bridge after wrangling with the deadly disease.

Now, we've lost our furriend Paddy O'Malley from https://eastsidecats.blogspot.com  It was a post  about Irish eyes smiling. We thought Paddy's eyes were always smiling. His presence in our cat community brightened all our days.



 

Our hearts are sad and we have to say, probably will be for some time. 
Miss you, pal!
