Finding Spring

In celebration of the first day of spring,  Harry and I went on an adventure in the back yard... to see if we could actually find any!

We headed to the most protected area, near the chicken coop...

... the dude almost stepped in it

We found some of the first tiny leaves of what will become some beautiful, red Bee Balm... we found thyme, plantain and even a bit of nip right near the wall...

Whew!  There's still tons of snow around here and this weekend is supposed to get down into the teens again, but we have proof positive that spring is here, so we think we'll be alright!

Spring has sprung!

Even though we have lots of snows still, 
today is the first day of spring!

For now, mom and dad have a garden planted on our window sills and kitchen table, and hutch and soon the seeds will get started in the "land behind the door where kitties don't get to go"

some of our garden, lots of herbs and a couple of horseradish plants!

But have no fear because we are welcoming in spring with a Pinterest board on our farm page called

Harry and Dexter are there, some of our blogging friends like Flynn and Zorro and Loupi from The Swiss Cats, and other cool kitties in pawesome gardens from all over the interwebs.  
Harry, out looking over the garden.. and the indigenous nip!

Wanted: Kitties in the garden photos

Hello friends of the blogosphere!

Our mom is sooooooooooooooooo over winter!   Record numbers of below zero days, over 130 inches of snow, and drifts up to.... well, lets just say the birds on our Bird TV channel didn't have to fly up to get to the feeders, they just walked across the drifts and hopped up.  Enough!

So she's putting out the call for your help.   On our Pinterest boards for the farm we live on, Red Trillium Farm, Mom started a board called "Garden Cats"  and we want help her fill it in.  We are looking for all of our blogosphere friends who's moms and dads take pawesome pictures of them out in nature (or "in" in nature, if you have a great flower bouquet shot) who would like to post a great picture of you on our board. Harry and Dexter are already on board and we'd love for you to be too.

If your peeps have a great photo(s) they'd like to add, please have them email our mom at :   
cherrycitykitties AT yahoo DOT com with their Pinterest name so she can send them an invite.   If your peeps don't Pinterest, but would like us to post pictures for you, we'd love to do that too, so just email them (with a description) to the same email and we'll add them for you!   She'll be away for a couple days, but will get your permissions added by Monday and then let you know you can post to the board so we can fill it up for the first day of spring on Thursday!

A spring full of kitties of the blogosphere... that should help melt the cold frosty heart of the Michigan winter away for sure!

Willow Wednesday

My dad thinks my tail is pretty... well... pretty.  (He's a man of few words).  I think it's quite unique with it's "tu-tone tabbiness".  Mom caught this picture to show you just how special it is, I held it up there for her just so you could see.  Kinda cool, huh!

Mom put together an ad she's thinking of putting up on the interwebs to help me earn some extra treat money...

FOR RENT:  One Ginger tail tip on an unassuming Torbie,  useful for putting in compromising interweb photos to get naughty Ginger brofurs in big troubles... (tee hee).  Will work for treats!

Any takers???

He who sits, gets in the blog...

Dexter has been "Mr. Photogenic" lately.  Sorry kitties, but if ya don't sitz, I can't shoot ya, capisce? 


This one made our new facebook page for our farm 
Red Trillium Farm.  Mom got a very special hot cocoa mix from Kings Road Apothecary with healing herbs and mushrooms (yes, mushrooms) in it. It was very delicious and nutritious and took just about a teaspoon of honey to make it sweet.  And don't worry, while Dex enjoyed some whiffies, we all know that kitties and cocoa don't mix so there were no "shares-ies"

So friends, if you want to see more of the rest of the gang, 
leave your words of encouragement for them to get just 
a bit more cooperative with the flashy box.  
I'll be happy to post 'em if they pose !

The three Valentine girls in my life...

Valentine's Day is a very special day for me.  You see there are three really important "Valentines" in my world.

The first Valentine girl in my life, was my little sister who the rescue people called "Valentine".  She was a little black kitty with a white heart on her tiny chest.  We were found when we were very tiny, our dear momma had been hit by a car and went to the Rainbow bridge.  We were so lucky that there was a really pawesome lady that took us in and fed us with a little tiny bottle while we were growing up.  Valentine and I , my name was Marmalade back then, played and snuggled and shared a place with some other kitties, but when we were just about 8 weeks old we went to a big place with lots of people and bright lights and woofies on some days and people came to look at us and would give us little scritches under the chin and talk sweet to us. 

It was at this place where I met the second Valentine in my life... my Mom Carolyn.  She and Dad Mark were visiting the big place, it looked like they had a big bag of nommy food with them, so they must have had other kitties to feed.  They were visiting the other kitties, giving them scritches and talking kindly to them and then... our eyes met... I looked at her, she looked at me... Dad Mark said... "do you want to see him?"  Oh, she saw me all right, what she wanted to do was hold me.  She picked me up, I snuggled in and purred and Dad Mark said... "Do you want to take him home?"  Home?  It was too good to be true!  This was the forever home the lady had told us about!  She told Mom and Dad not to worry, that my sister would stay with her until she found a forever home and would never be alone.  Valentine and I looked at each other, I knew she was happy for me and I was happy she would still be looked after, and I was off to join my new family.

Oh, are you wondering why I call my Mom my second Valentine girl?  Because my gotcha day was Feb 14th 2009, and my new Mom said I was the best Valentine present ever.  Of course, the feeling was mutual!

So now we come to my third Valentine girl.   And I think you all already know who that is.  Yep, it's my sweetie, the prettiest little floofy ginger princess in the blogosphere, Miss Pia Bean Cole.   I felt like the luckiest mancat in the world when Pia told everyone of her huge crush on me, and... well... it was no less than my love for her.  She is far away from me, but we hold each other dear... Mom keeps her picture on our computer screen so I can see her,  and we read the Colehaus Cats blog together all the time.  It's like she's right here with me.  

Three Valentine girls,  my sister, my mom and my 'lil bean.  Three special girls that fill my heart every day with all the love I could ever need.  Yep... I AM the luckiest mancat ... no doubt about it!

I love you all my girls!
