We are thankful that Mom has the Sunday only paper delivered. Once in awhile there is a paper bag included in it which she lets us have.

After we have had our fun with the bag she puts it in the recycle bin in the garage.


What we think we become

Our summer went by in the blink of an eye. I was so busy keeping Memphis in touch with her old school chums...running off to the parks...driving back and forth...having many visitors...unpacking...settling in...playing in the kiddie pool...getting ready to start Memphis in a brand new school...making sure Soren got his naps...washing the car...cleaning the house and cleaning it again...decorating our first ever home...
It's a blur of madness and joy. We ended it with a 9th Birthday Party for Ms. Memphis...we rented a bouncy house...because we have a big back yard now...and about 20 of her friends and some of their parents stayed too and wow....I was shell shocked for a few days but it really went well. I seriously can not believe Halloween is right around the corner and that the days are getting shorter. I have also been reading up on Buddhism and finding that it really resonates with me...
which brings me to my next point. Long story short my brother and his wife have exited our lives. Many details left out, my niece left home at 17 to go and live with my cousin and my Ma and Dad helped with money a bit. She could not longer live there. I will not share details and I try not to ever get this personal but it continues on and on. Now my 65 year old mother is stressed out because my niece will be living with her now and going to community college. Her parents refuse to help her at all and I feel lost. He is my only sibling. I do not know how to handle it. So I have decided not to. Occasionally I will return an email and try not to say too much because when I have there is trouble. I am sent religious, specifically Christian emails but get very little other news from said brother/sister-in-law. So I guess the reason I am asking is...I have strong spiritual beliefs but they are not rooted in one religion. I have always tried very hard to be a kind person and when I have wronged someone I have tried to right it.
Lately I am trying to live in the moment. Trying to make all my reactions ones out of love and when I make a mistake I forgive myself for letting my emotions lead me down the wrong path.
I guess it might be time to realize I no longer have a brother as I have been rejected so many times. Oh life...why are you so hard sometimes?
Thank goodness for my own little family...they are my life and I guess that is what I must focus on now. :)

And for the silly purrson who thinks that there should be a day without cats on the innerwebs:

Here's a little video of Minchie in action with one of his thousands of mousies.

We hope all of the American mancats (and girlcats too) have a very relaxing Labor Day. Don't forget, this is the day our beans have to do all of our labor for us. Oh, wait, they already do 24/7! MOL!

Laila, do you realize this is the third day in a row we haven't had the air conditioning on and the windows wide open? I think we should spend this Easy Sunday napping here on our cat tree catching all the nice cool breezes.

Good thing Mom doesn't have those HOT burners on, or Minchie's butt would be on fire!

Friday Flashback

Today's Friday Flashback goes back to July 12, 2007.

Laila totally enjoying and trying out everything in our "kitty amusement park."

Soon she won't be able to fit under here.


Lilly can't help but be a bit curious. This poor little 16 year old "senior" is holding up well. Just waiting for the mom instincts to kick in. So far she's "talking" to her a lot.

Laila has adjusted very well to her new environment. My only regret is that she still is skittish toward me. I'm just being patient letting her approach on her own. However, when she is "still" and resting I can then go over to her, pet her, which she is crazy about, and then pick her up and hold and bond with her. Just going to take some time.

This Whisker Wednesday goes back to when Angel lived with us. He didn't seem too happy that Mom stuck Laila's flower on his face. Real mancats don't wear flowers!

I am very thankful that Mom bought me this Cat Hair Magnet. It took some getting use to how to use it. So Mom trained me on it's benefits. Now each morning I beg her to brush me.


As soon as I see my mom holding my brush, I run over to the Magnet.

While she is brushing me, I start rubbing my head on the bristles of the Magnet.

It's really great for getting under the chin and cheeks.

And it's so wonderful to have the very top of my head scritched.
I think everyone should get one of these and learn how to use it. Sometimes I'll even go over to it and start rubbing my face on it all by myself.

Tummy and Toesies Tuesday

We are letting our cousins, Sushimi and Lady, have the Tummy and Toesies Tuesday post today since Mom is now finally home from staying with them for four days.

Sushimi has the white tummy and toesies like we have. Right away we know she is A-okay in our books! Mom says she loves her tummy rubbed and will act like a roly poly bug when you do. She looks like our kind of girl!

Everyone thinks Lady thinks Mom is her mom because their hair/fur is the same color. Her golden tummy also loves to be rubbed and immediately rolls over on her back for you with all of her toesies up in the air loving every minute of it. We never met a woofie before but know in time we'd be the boss over her just like Sushimi is.

Is that a nose peeking out under the end table?

Let's get a little closer to see who it might be.

Looks like a very furocious mancat to us!

Sure is quiet and boring while Mom is gone taking care of our cousins! At least we have each other to keep company. So we'll just chillax here on the cat hair magnet.

Mom is cat/dog/house sitting for her sister's fambly while they are away for four days. She is spending time with us but sleeps at Sushimi and Lady's house.

Cousin Sushimi. Mom says she reminds her a lot of Laila with her squeaky little mews.

And this is Lady. Lady goes insane when Mom is around! She thinks she's a lap dog.


What is especially hard is that Cousin Gizmo isn't there anymore because he ran away to the Bridge a few months ago. But Sushimi is more than making up for his absence. We really don't mind Mom dividing her time between both houses because we know she'll be back for good Monday afternoon.
