China Cat is 12 today!

Today is China Cat's 12th birthday! She gets to do whatever she wants and right now she wants to nap out in our screened-in porch. Later she gets to have lots of treats and she said that I can have lots of treats with her!
She is the best big sister-cat!

Still Not in my Red Box Top

Well, this morning I went out to my screened-in porch after breakfast to maybe take a nap in my red box top. Last night my Food Lady took some of that sticky gray tape to fix my red box top where it was breaking. So, this morning I thought that I would try it out. Much to my chagrin, who do you think was already sleeping in my red box top? It sure was China Cat all stretched out and cozy!
I decided to make the best of the situation and I went into our tent. I did a little bit of grooming while thinking that maybe by the time I was done, China Cat would be out of my red box top.
I looked at her and she was still sleeping all stretched out! Hey, our tent is pretty nice too. I thought for a minute that she was getting out but she just rotated. I think I'll nap in the tent for a while. I forgot how nice it was in here and tomorrow is another day for my red box top.
I'll have to go out faster!

Not The Mama Monday

It is Not The Mama Monday!
This was proclaimed by the Cat Blogosphere!
Mo is a wonderful person who cares so much for all kitties
and he is a "cat magnet" for kitties who need his help.
In fact, Stinky Pete just came to Mo for help and you can read about him here.
Thank you for all you do!
And, if you want to buy any gifts,or a little something for yourself,

My Red Box Top

A while ago, on Earth Day, I claimed the red box top as my very own. Since then, China Cat had decided that she really liked sleeping in my red box top. I haven't even been in it for days, maybe even weeks! Every time I jump up, there she is sleeping in it...until today! I jumped up and it was all ready for me to climb right in. If you can imagine little China Cat in my red box top you will have no trouble recognizing that she would not fill out the box like I do. I can really fill up my red box top! And now it's nap time for me!

Toesday and a Tongue

This picture was from a long time ago
when I was only five months old.
I don't remember why I was licking my lips this time
but I'm sure I just had some very tasty treat!

My Food Lady wears a lot of hats
and I used to always curl up in them when I was a kitten.
Clearly I don't fit in them any more!

My New Food

The other day I had my tongue out licking my lips and some of you wondered what I had been eating.
Well, look at this huge new bag of cat food. My Food Lady tried to get a picture of me giving the bag the bitey but I stopped when I saw that flashy thing. So, she has no proof that I was biting the food bag! I did get to eat some of that delicious, new, crunchy food though and my Food Lady was happy that she got that picture of me last Wednesday with my tongue out!

Violette Noelle

This is a very sad day.
Little Violette Noelle will be laid to rest.
In memory of "Sprout" my blog is violet today.
Please keep Monty Q and his family in your thoughts
and as requested we will wear violet for Violette.

Wonderful Wordless Wednesday

Rest in Peace, Sweet Felix

Another friend, Felix Unger Graves III,
had to go to the Rainbow Bridge today.
I'm glad that he is no longer in pain.
And we will light candles for him tonight.

Toesday Today!

I'm just sitting out on the hot tub.
Mindin' my own business.
But ready to move if necessary!

Sweet Sprout

Tracey and family,
you are in our thoughts and prayers.

The Lily
Ellen Brenneman

We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in
the warmth of the sunlight’s kiss upon its face, before it
folds its fragrance in and bids the world goodnight to
rest its beauty in a gentler place.

But we know that nothing that is loved is ever lost, and
no one who has ever touched a heart can really pass
away, because some beauty lingers on in each memory of
which they’ve ever been a part.

Monty Q's 2008 Contest

This is my entry for Monty Q's 2008 Contest. Neither China Cat nor I are very good at doing the Q, as in lying on our backs, but today I tried my hardest when my Food Lady was brushing me...
See how I stretched out my toes...
And how I almost rolled over on to my back...

NOMS Day 8/5/2008

My NOMS friend is Bogart, Handsome Devil and he is one fine looking dog, indeed! In July he had this picture of him as the winning photo for July, where is was proudly displayed on the front page of Dogs With Blogs! He used to live in Los Angeles, California and has since moved to Portland, Oregon. Of course, he has already made lots of friends there!

It's too hot so I stayed inside for a nap.

Do I look like a meatloaf???
