Kitties Do Chores Too

Not all housework is boring. Us kitties, we like to help mama in one special chore she does. We like to take charge of changing the bedsheets. After all we sleep in the same bed too.

Emma takes care of the top part.

One guess as to who's not leaving any stones unturned. A very thorough job by Buster.
2011_08_28 007
BUSTER: I have to make sure all's okay under here.
2011_08_28 006
BUSTER: This needs straightening.

When the job is done, we enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Nap time for us kitties. See you later.

This is my house and if I want to be on the coffee table, I'd be on the coffee table.

And if I want to watch life play out from that perch, so be it :)

Well, until mama yells that I scratched another part of the the coffee table.

One Year Ago Today

Mama forgot to post on my Gotcha Day which was on October 16. I think it's because I didn't get home until October 20th. They had to perform some manly surgeries on me, you know so I had to go home a few days later.

Here are some of the photos Mama took on my first day at home. They fetch me from the shelter, which was 15 miles away about 6 pm. They let me loose inside the car on the drive home and I freaked out at the car lights. That was funny, Mama thought.

I got home and decided to roll over the carpet to put my manly scent all over the room.

That activity was really tedious so I had to power up with some noms.

Then I continued to explore the house.

Emma wasn't happy. If only looks could kill :) Doncha worry we're getting along now.

I am so happy to be celebrating my first year in my forever home. I hope every kitty gets a happy forever home.

Love,
Buster.

Guest Cat

Mama and Papa went to Carmel earlier this year and visited the Mission Carmel. And guess who they bumped into the gift shop of the mission?

may 24-25 2011 199
It's the resident kitty visitor. The lady carrying "it" works there and gets daily visits from this kitty. Of course she feeds it. The kitty is not supposed to be in the gift shop but she persists even after being taken out by the lady. The pawrents saw it coming back to the gift shop over and over again after each time she gets "thrown out".

The kitty chilled with my pawrents in the parking lot. Mama took some shots.

More head and back rub.

Something caught its attention.

Look how fluffy it is.

Under the car is the way to the gift shop, it said, and off it went to get more food from the lady.

We love it when mama and papa bring us photos of kitties they meet when they leave the house.

Buster's Day Out



Nope my friends Buster didn't go to the vet the day after Emma's vet date. He went to church for the animal blessing in connection with the feast day of St. Francis of Assissi.

We initially wanted Emma to go but thought that 2 consecutive days in the pet carrier is to much stress for her, so we brought Buster instead. Plus, Emma went last year and Buster hadn't had his blessing yet.

You should have heard him in the car. But the minute he was at church he behaved like a saint, very quiet and docile. He was everyone's fave. Our priest, vicar Susan even asked if she could carry Buster. I was ready with the camera once that happened.

Cats on Tuesday

I had an interesting weekend. I went to the V-E-T. I feel perfectly alright. BUT, mama was panicky. She felt that I wasn't eating enough. Of course she compares my eating to Buster. No one beats Buster at eating. He grazes all day long. Me? I only eat when I'm hungry. I know how to regulate my intake.

But when mama came back from vacation she carried me and thought I lost weight. Then g'ma came and told mama that while she was looking after us while they were away I wasn't eating like I was supposed to.

When she got back from vacation she also went out to buy the brand of food that I really like. You know she likes to mix up our food. One month she buys one brand, a different brand the next month.

I don't like CHANGE too much.

But so off to vet we went last Saturday. I knew something was up when both mama and papa got up and I got loaded into the pet carrier. Of course I meowed my objection throughout the ride to the vet.

The vet was very impressed with my cool as cucumber demeanor. She said I was very calm despite all the barking in the lobby. Oh kitties, the waiting room was filled with woofies with issues. They were barking like animals :)

After thorough exam (I am current with all my shots), the vet said I was fine. I even gained weight, all 1.7 lbs from last year. Also the vet said I have really fine and healthy coat. Mama was very proud.

Oh kitties, after we got back home, Buster interrogated me all afternoon. He wanted to know where I went and what happened.

The next day he was the one loaded up in the pet carrier, but that's for another post. So I'm happy to tell all of you my friends that I survived the vet experience.

Love,
Emma

Getting Photographed
