Mancat Monday

Hey, fellow Mancats, don't be too jealous of my handsome Mancatliness.

Easy like Sunday morning

Anyone want to join us on mom's bed for Easy Like Sunday Morning? We has lots of room!

Yesterday mom went to our cousin's house to eat another turkey dinner.

Gizmo is not happy at all that they forgot to set a place for him.

Beware of those laser eyes! That couldn't even persuade the humans to set a place for him. But don't worry, mom was sneaking turkey to him before and after dinner. Mom is always telling him that if it weren't for her he'd be coyote food.

Cousin Lady and Gizmo worn out from all the excitement.

We hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Mom is going to another Thanksgiving dinner today and this one she promises will be the one we get our turkey leftovers from. We can't wait! nom nom nom

Happy Thanksgiving

This is what mom is serving us for breakfast until she brings home real turkey leftovers later. Nom. Nom. Nom.

We hope all of our American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are very thankful for all of our great friends we have met through the CB. We treasure all of you!

Wrestlemania Wednesday

Tummy, toesies and tail Tuesday

CATEGORY: | Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Mom ran for the flashy box yesterday when she saw me doing roly polys on the unmade bed and showing off my tummy furs. This is something she's never seen me do before so she got about 5 shots that you will be seeing in future Tummy Tuesdays. Most Turkish Angora's are pure white, but I have some tiger markings in me because I am a Mancat and tough like a tiger. My ladycat and Turkish Princess, Baby Patches, has the beautiful calico markings trying to overtake her white furs.

Saturday Caturday

Now really, who else but me would mom have on her phone?

Oh the things you can find when you are shopping for others......

CATEGORY: | Friday, November 20, 2009

Love these and so many many other things in this shop...Retrowhale

I love and collect enamel trays...xoxo from Jape

Onegiftoneworld....I'm in love

Newduds super cool scarf

So so so love this...think I could rock it...not sure...Robert Rodriguez...yup..Nordstrom's

I am very drawn to this...not my usual style but I love it...Anthropologie

Diane Von Furstenberg...LOVE...also Nordstrom's

Sweater I love....Nordstrom's

I got to go to the Mall this morning by myself....it was like I was in another world. When you have small kids with you you are always watching them. Looking out...being aware of what they are doing, where they are going...what they are trying to destroy. So you don't really absorb the world like you would if you were by yourself. Well this morning I went to the mall...got there before it opened...got a coffee(never drink coffee...what a treat...soy mocha to be exact) and a blueberry scone. Sat down and people watched. I saw all these group of elderly folks all walking the mall, parents with kids, Dads alone with kids, kids smiling and running along, other people waiting to return stuff, people working to open up the shops, big big group of folks having a meeting in Nordstroms...all standing around listening to something a guy was saying...and I have to say...it made me teary eyed. Weird I know but it was just so refreshing to absorb, to notice, to see so much human energy at work. I was really taking it all in. I know it must sound weird to some of you but I also know there are others of you that know exactly what I am talking about. Not sure if it would bring anyone else close to tears but just thinking about it makes my eyes well up again. It's funny how things effect you when you are least expecting it. I guess spending so much time with my small son has made me yearn for grown up human connections so when I see so many out in the world it makes me hopeful. It's nice to be alone but not feel lonely at all.
I can't really explain it any better than that but I know some of you understand. Anywho...have a wonderful weekend...I am going to try and be around here more often as I have sort of fallen off the map. xoxoxo

Laila's newest hangout

This little area behind mom's recliner is just the right size for me. And I can guard and keep mom safe from all the evil intruders who may want to come in and steal her away from us.

Laila just loves being able to spread out on the couch. Great way to spend a cloudy and cold day.

Our mom and Angel's mom are going to the movies tonight to see "The Wizard of Oz" on the big screen. It's the 70th Anniversary Encore Event. Mom says she's gonna close her eyes during the tornado scene.

Mom is back! Life is good once again. Angel's mommie took real good care of us.

Last night Mom and Chey and Gemini's Mom met for the first time and had dinner together then Mom brought Bonnie over to meet us. Here she is telling me what a handsome mancat I am in purrson and that the pictures just don't do me justice.
We smelled every inch of her taking in the sweet ladycat smells of Chey and Gemini. Laila did her usual hiding and running from room to room, but Bonnie was able to catch a glimpse of her. It was so much fun to meet her and put our mancat smells on her so Chey and Gemini will be able to smell us when she gets back. What a great visit!

We are giving Mom a few days off to go and do her scrapbooking thing for three days. This is where she will be staying. So we will not be back until Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

Please, please, please Mom! Can we go?

But not to worry, Angel's Mommie will be staying with us.

We are having company!

Laila and I are on the lookout for Chey and Gemini's Mom who is coming to Chicago today for a conference and is staying at the hotel right next door to where we live! Small world isn't it? Mom is going to pick her up at the hotel and bring her over to meet us! We are so excited!!! Then they are going out for dinner. This is the first time we have met a fellow cat blogger in person.

Wordless Wednesday (sort of)

Mom and 30 other potential jurors waiting in the assembly room got released at 2PM yesterday! The room exploded with cheers of joy. The beans decided to go with a bench trial. We are rich now! $17.20 for her time. WOOHOO!!!

Tummy Tuesday

Angel's working on his tummy furtan.

Mom has to go to jury duty today. She's hoping not to get picked. Any other week would be fine, but not this week. She's going away this Friday for a long weekend scrapbooking.

Mancat Monday

We are very handsome mancats...no ifs, ands or "butts" about it!

Easy like Sunday morning

And on the seventh day the cats rested.

We're in the dog house

CATEGORY: | Saturday, November 7, 2009
Mom says Laila and Angel are in the dog house! Laila has been "egging" him on and Angel then starts to attack her. The water bottle is really getting a workout these past few days. Mom has Feliway plugged in now to see if that helps. We think it may be the springlike weather we've been having that is setting them off. Chill out dudes!!!
