ManCat Monday....Hokey Pokey

  There was a new Merit Badge at Cat Scouts last week.  It was Dancing.  You could post your Sock Hop Photo, a still shot of you dancing and a video for even more points.  You could use JibJab but I decided to do my OWN video......I hope you like it.  Believe it or not, it took Mom HOURS to do this 27 second video........



                        


Our Pal Sweet William the Scot  has a very special post today about how his city is starting a movement to create a No Kill  Nation for Cats.  Please stop by.  If you don't know Sweet William, he's a pawsome woofie.

Photo Hunters - Sheer

This week's Photo Hunters theme is Sheer.

Raz has a look of SHEER delight on his face as Dad gives him head scritches.


Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop

Using the Space effect from PicMonkey, the SHEER covering of light makes Raz look out of this world.

Thankful Thursday - an award

Our pals at the Kitty Cat Chronicles gave us a pawsome award....it's the Shine On award!

Here are the rules:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On award, provide a link to their blog in your post, and notify them on their blog!  


You can read their 7 random facts HERE.

Here are ours:

1.  Mom was once on Animal Planet.  They interviewed her at a Cat Show in Boston.

2.  Cubby will very often sleep in long after Mom and Dad are up!

3.  Raz will climb 3/4 of the way up a wall to get the red dot.  No, he never succeeds.

4. Allie is very talkative, except when the video camera is running.

5. Ellie sleeps on Mom's pillow at night which means Mom can't move her head when she gets in bed.

6. Dad is a super photographer but Mom takes all of our pics (which explains a LOT).

7.  Mom and Dad are online a LOT - in fact, they MET online!!

Now for the blogs we are awarding this to.  We tried to pick blogs that have not received this award yet.  So....we are awarding this to:

Trooper Tuesday

Hi everyone, Cousin Trooper here.   Last week the Furkids Mom came over to visit with me and give me a Mani/Pedi.  I was really happy to see her and she spent some time playing and snuggling with me and, of course, taking LOADS of pictures.

 Hey there Furkids Mom....good to see you....


What Mani/Pedi?  I think I'll hide back here...


Now here's where I need some advice from my pals.  As you can see, I am still losing my furs. You can see it here on my side....

and you can REALLY see it on my back legs.


I've been to two different VETS and nobody has come up with an answer.  First they thought I was allergic to fleas or something in the house.  My new Mom changed my flea meds but that didn't help.
The second VET thought I might be having a urinary problem and I did.  That's all cleared up now but I'm still losing my furs.  We tried different diets, nothing helped.  Bloodwork looks good.  They tried a cortisone shot...no help.  Has anyone had a problem like this?  Other than that my fur is shiny, I eat well, my weight is stable, I play and have fun.  My new Mom does travel a lot and it might be separation anxiety.  The Furkids Mom suggested Feliway diffusers and we're going to try that.

I hope you think I still look handsome...


Thanks for any and all advice.

Love,
Cousin Trooper

Happy Birthday at the Bridge

Today would have been Angel Sniffie's 15th Birthday. We miss her so much! Mom says there must be a huge party at the Bridge today for Angel Sniffie and her sister Angel Cory who went to the Bridge in 2002.

We're not sure you've ever seen Cory so we wanted to show you how purrty she was.

See all those ribbons?  Angels Cory and Tamir won them at Cat Shows!



Angel Cory knew how to work the camera!! 

Helping out with the laundry was one of Angel Cory's specialties!



And, of course, Angel Sniffie had her own style!!!


Sniffie was born Nirmanakaya's Viandra and Cory was Nirmanakaya's Ventana Mi Corazon. Their  Daddy was Nirkmankaya's Visquey Innajar and Mom was Nirmanakaya's Sidhe Reginne.



These two graphics were made by Zoolatry. They were too good not to use again!

As you all know, Angel Sniffie LOVED chips and ham! Here's a video of Angel Sniffie enjoying her Birthday snack.  We know we share it every year, but it makes Mom smile. 



                          

Happy Birthday Angels Sniffie and Cory. There is not a day that goes by that we don't miss you. When you left, you took a big part of our hearts with you.
