Two on Tuesday

Devon and Tanner love to help you eat meals...they are waiting on a scrap of something to be offered to them. This picture was a bit late, because earlier, Tanner had his arm around Devon...so cute! I had hoped to catch the moment, but by the time I got back with the camera, he had stopped. Anyway, they are the most handsome dinner dates ever!

Thursday in the Garden

:: 3 paw taps ::

Today in the garden we will be looking at my favorite flowers the gerbera daisy.
We have several in our garden out front...Aunties favorite color is the pink...they are very vibrant and add a nice pop of color in the flower bed.
We both like the yellow ones too...we have a lot of purple and yellow flowers in our garden...

This year, our neighbor gave us one of my favorite colors...an orange one! I love the brightness and the earthiness of this color.

Well, that's our garden...please check out more fabulous flowers at the Society of Feline Gardeners.

PS - We spotted our bird visitor from last week again this morning. We will be on the lookout and hunt once again to try and catch him.

Toes and Tummy Tuesday

Love those stiff chicken legs Tanner! I don't think Smokey is appreciating the 'show' he is getting!

Tanner loves the nekofly...he is crazy rolling around on the floor. We call him our roly poly!

Mancats Get Even

Mr Puddy had a challenge to us kitties to show how we pay back our humans...well, it isn't pretty, but Tanner and Devon are a double threat.

If they don't feel things are going their way, let's say dinner was a few minutes late, playtime ended too soon, mom spent too much time watching tv, and not enough time talking to, playing with, brushing, snuggling, etc...then she will come into her bathroom to find this...

Devon has piddle in the corner...the brown blobs are Tanners :)

Now, it is fair to say that Devon thought he was doing the right thing...he was in the box when he left his surprise...he just chooses not to squat!

It isn't pretty, but the boys know what they want, and like to keep the mom guessing...what will she find today in the bathroom? Let this be a warning to you all...

A Visitor in the Garden

::3 paw taps::

Today in our garden post, we wanted to show you the visitor we had last Sunday. Mom and Auntie were eating lunch, of course we were helping, and they noticed this on the bird feeders outside...
He is a Quaker Parrot. (They learned this later on) We knew immediately what type of fevver it was, but enjoyed watching them try to figure it out.
He sat and ate for a long time. Mom and Auntie decided they should try and catch him, because he is not native, and someone may have lost him. A trip to the Lowes and a phone call to Petsmart later and they were ready to try...
They sat outside and waited...he came back time and time again, but they were too slow. Beans are not as well equipped for catching fevvers are us cats...they would not let us out though!
They tried for about three hours, with no luck. He finally stopped coming by the feeders...
They are still on the lookout for the magnificant creature...and hope to get him one day soon. What sort of interesting visitors have you had lately?

For more great garden posts, visit Jonesie and the Society of Feline Gardeners.

Mom here: We called the vets in the area, checked craigslist, called the wildlife rescue, shelter, etc...to see if anyone had reported a lost bird. No one had. There's no telling how long he has been out, or where he could have come from. I still hope we can snag him...and then find him a nice home.

Purrs Requested

This is our friend's cat Kotaro. He is 10 years old, and was recently diagnosed with cancer, type unspecified. He is going downhill pretty quickly, and we know the power of the purr, so we are asking for healing purrs for him today.

Thank you all for supporting Kotaro and his family today by purring. We will keep you posted on his progress.

Bloggy Award

Thanks to the cats at Bengal Cat Domination, we were given this sweet award! Tanner is eyeing that cake and wondering if he'll get a taste...he has a major sweet tooth!

Now with receiving this award, I am requested to write 7 unknown facts about me (actually us, 3 kittys here) and also give the award to 15 other bloggers.

1) Smokey is becoming very demanding in his senior years. He sits and waits in the living room for his food to be brought to him. Of course we oblige and take him something.

2) Smokey opens the closets in the kitten and guest room everyday.

3) Devon can jump from the counter to the top of the kitchen cabinets, but he can not get down. Someone has to go and rescue him! Luckily, he doesn't do this often.

4) Devon will move into your spot if you get out of bed in the night!

5) Tanner caught and ate a fly that was in the house the other day. I was very impressed, and of course did not have the camera handy.

6) Tanner will sit in the kitchen while you are vacuuming the floor...he doesn't mind when the wand attachment 'gets' him.

7) All the boys want to thank Derry and Nicki for showing us the wonder of the snake. Mom got us some this past weekend, and we all love the snake!

Now, we would like to pass this award on to any blogging friend that hasn't had it yet...please take it and post. You are all awesome!
