To our friends...

We sure have gotten to know a lot of new friends since we arrived to the Catblogosphere in July.  There are lots of things going on around here, happy, exciting, funny, political,beautiful,caring, and occasionally sad.  But we are proud to be a part of them all.

We wish everyone a joyous New Year, full of purrs and headbonks, lots of nip and stinky goodness (or the nom of your choice... or trout...)  We hope your humans, beans, hoomans, personal assistants/servants remain at your beck and meow, and if you have 'em, that you get along better with your brofurs and sisfurs. (or pea-eyed maniacs...).  

And finally, for everyone we support, may all the kitties in all the shelters, sanctuaries and rescues, find health, a roof over their heads and the love of a furever home.

 


Happy New Year to all...                   NOW BREAK OUT THE NIPTINIS!!!

Your pals,   
Harry, Dexter and Tipp

Bow's story and a chance to help win $10K for Carol's Ferals

Please watch the story of Bow, and vote

the Momma here.


For those of you who never heard of (or those of you who have) heard the story of "Bow", the kitty rescued with an arrow shot through his head, a video has been made by Carol's Ferals, the rescue group in Grand Rapids, MI who played a huge part in helping Bow, and other kitties survive and thrive after severe injuries

The video of Bow's story is now entered in the World Animal Awareness Society (WA2S)  contest to win $10K for Carol's Ferals, if it should win.   

"The VISION of the World Animal Awareness Society (WA2S.org) is to focus a lens on a wide spectrum of interactions at the human-animal intersection and curate a detailed filmed archive of behaviors in expectation of observing human evolution.
The moving image is arguably the rawest, most powerful educational tool we have to witness our behavioral patterns, attitudes and interactions and aid us in our continued growth.

By producing compelling documentaries to be shared with the world and providing raw aggregateable footage to educational institutions for further research, the World Animal Awareness Society will accomplish its mission."


We think that WA2S's mission to draw attention to and support animal based non-profits, their work and their volunteers, as well as education through video and documentaries is innovative, compassionate and timely.  We invite you to visit their website to find out in their words, more than we could ever tell you.


Please watch the story of Bow


In the meantime, please watch the video of the story of Bow, and if you would like to help other kitties like him and the work of Carol's Ferals, please click "Like", comment and/or subscribe to WA2S Youtube channel.  Each action counts as a vote and you can vote as often as you like.  

Please share this post, or the post from Carol's Ferals on the Cherry City Kitties facebook page.

Thank you to all our friends for your help.  MUAH!

Our Merry Christmas from our cousin Alexis!

the Momma and the Daddy went to see our Auntie Suzie, Uncle Gabe and Cousin Alexis for Christmas early, because the Daddy had to work on Christmas eve.  They didn't take us with them, mostly because we hate car rides, (cause you know where they usually end up... the V-E-T !) but also because we had to guard the house from (as da Tabbies o' Trout Town would say) all "da stoopid burds" that flew in and were surrounding the house!  We were bummed out though, because we always love it when our Auntie comes up here to visit, cause she plays with us as much as we want. She's tons of fun!


 Anyway...  She must have thought we were good boys this year (heh,heh,heh... boy, did we fool her...) cause she sent home a shiny white stocking... and there was something in it!  We'd better check this out further.




 First, there were the cool red ribbons.  She told the Daddy that they were to play with, so we went on the attack... between the two of us, we killed 'em dead.  Harry, missed this fun, he was busy staring at the inside of his eyelids, if ya know what we mean... (zzzzzzzzzzz....)






Oh, but it was another story all together when the Daddy pulled out a bag addressed to him.  His lasers locked in on the bag addressed to him and pulled him in like a magnet.  Forget the mousie on the package, he wanted to  Party wit da Party Mix..right NOW!



Dexter on the other hand thought that the treats sounded yummy, but the lure of the catnip mouse was too much to bear.  




And me... I went back to the cool ribbons, cause I wasn't quite done hunting them yet.  But I will get them and carry off my prize! (and then come running back for the treats!)

Cousin Alexis, you know us so well and it was so nice that you sent us our favorite things!  We can't be with you in purr-son for Christmas, but we send our purrs and all our love to you, and headbonks and nose kisses too.

To all our friends, we hope you are having a great holiday time, no matter which one you celebrate, and that you got lots of boxes and ribbons and paper (oh yeah, and the good stuff that came inside them...) and lots of tummy rubs (if you like them like Dexter does), chin scritches and snuggling!

Purrs!
Harry, Dexter and Tipp 

pee ess:  We posted about our Secret Paws presents over on the Secret Paws blog site.  Check out the goodies we got from our new friends Baby and Lucky!  We are some lucky kitty boys this year.

Not too much going on round here... MOM!


Hi all, Tipp here. Man, do I wish the bush outside my T.V. window were green like that now, but all the leaves went gone and though I still watch the birds outside, and sometimes the bunny, it's just kinda cold and snowy.  I miss green already.



So lots of you know that the Momma and the Daddy got me from a rescue place called UN-Cats.  Miss Mandie and Miss Amy started it so that kitties with kitty sicknesses and kitties who are lost souls would have a place to stay, and maybe find a forever home like I have.  They go to PetSmart every weekend with some of the kitties and try to help them find forever homes.  It's really hard you know and there is another group of friends that has doggies and kitties that it's helping, and they are all there, trying the best to get us adopted.  Anyway...

the Momma talked to Miss Mandie and thought that the UN-Cats needed a website. So she has been more busy working at the computer on that than typing for us!  She says she has a million cards to catch up on, and she will this weekend she says... hmm... I wonder if it's before or after the bake sale by the Pet Santa, or after... Anyway...

We'll get you updated soon, things are mostly quiet around here, except when Harry wants his stinky goodness, then, well he's a pain in the back of the Daddy's jeans.  Keep watching, we'll tell you when the Momma gets it working, but maybe, we'll start coming first again (did ya hear that Momma, did you ????)

Christmas wishes at the Tabby Cat Club



Today, Dexter is over at the Tabby Cat Club to share his Christmas wish with everyone.  Please come over and visit there today.  Your heart will be inspired.

December 10, 2012

We didn't know we were so sweet!

Oh my!  Our friends Leo and Star from Celestial Kitties, AND the gang from Twinkletoes Tails gave us a really sweet award.  Well of course an award is sweet, but this one is sugar buzz sweet too!




 wow man...
the colors...
just like when i've been
doin' the nip.... 


(Dex, knock it off...)


Well, of course we know that we aren't supposed to eat the sweet stuff (Harry, quit licking the Daddy's ice cream bowl!) so the Daddy will answer some questions, and we'll handle the rest!

Cookies or Cake?     Hands down cake.  Yellow cake, Chocolate frosting tops the list, but cake, please don't put nuts on it. (Harry, see, the Daddy doesn't want your paw prints in his cake!)

Chocolate or Vanilla?       Chocolate mostly, but definitely Vanilla ice cream... for many of you who don't know, one of my nicknames for Harry (besides NO! and GET DOWN!) is "Parts per Million" because all I have to do is open the freezer and reach for the ice cream and he's right there. He can smell vanilla in the next county I think. (Why yes... yes I can)

What is your favorite sweet treat?      It's a toss-up.  I always seem to have Reese's Peanut Butter Cups around, but I am most partial to an awesome, well made Long John donut with cream inside. (I am partial to the wrappers from the Reesy Cups you leave on the table, cause I can play with them... [yes Tipp, and then I have to pick them up...the Momma])

When do you crave sweet things the most?      Night time mostly, as a treat later on.

If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?      Honey.  That is already what the Momma calls me.   (the Momma calls me "Sweet Dee!) (Yeah, but that's because you're a suck up) (ok, Mr. PPMillion) (I want a superhero nickname like "Captain Black Licorice" !) (group sigh... Oh Tipp....)

So now that you know the Daddy's sugary secrets (and Harry's dumb nickname!)  We'll pass this along to some friends of ours who we think are super sweet too!   It's hard to keep up on all the awards that are give and getted in the blogosphere (the Momma's brain won't remember them all, there's not a lot of room in there...) that we know we'll duplicate somewhere, and miss some others.
We'll do our best...  Enjoy, and don't forget to answer the questions before you pass it on.   

Poppy Q - cause she is arguably the sweetest kitty in NZ!

Waffles TOO at Glogirly  cause Waffles tend to have syrupy goodness all over them (and we think he needs help buttering up "Sweet Katie".)

Prancer Pie cause pie is sweet (and so are the rest of the gang+

Kjelle Bus  cause the Momma thinks he's the sweetest (Hey! what about us ? What are we ? Chopped liver ?)

d'Artangan and Diego over at Rumblebum cause the took the lead on the Waffles mystery and they deserve some yummy sweetness for their efforts!

Enjoy our sweet friends!

Easy like Sunday




Look at these bums... they haven't been up but a few hours and ZZZZZZZ...... they're out again.  







WE are good boys and we will help the Momma get even by "messing up" the boxes that the Daddy tidied up so nicely this morning. (heh,heh,heh).

Then, while the Momma is watching the humans running around playing with their ball on the tv, We're going to go over to "BCM Northeast Sports Field" and check out final preparations for first ever TREE CLIMBING COMPETITION.  What?  You don't follow competitive Tree Climbing?  Oh man, you have to go check this out!  You can start with an overview of the competition grounds, and then work your way back through some posts that start with a little kitty called Timbit and a fear of climbing.  We can't wait till the teams are finalized.  The stadium has been prepared, and practice has taken place.  Who will have the "thrill of victory" and who will suffer the "agony of 'da feets"?   Go check it all out on Cattales from Barn Cat Mansion, and stay tuned for the fun!

Have an easy!
Harry and Tipp

A cool gift for your beans !

Ok, so I know we don't always want to admit it, but we all kinda do love our humans beans (or in some cases our personal servants, assistants, etc...) Well, I'll admit it, I do, especially the Momma cause she snuggles me a lot and I love it!

Well one bean I really like is the Momma's niecy, Alexis. She is a nice girl and she will play and play and play with me, especially with my feather toys, which I love,love,love!   Anyway, we kitties found a great present to give her and the Momma (shhhhhh....) for Christmas.  It didn't cost many monies and it's really cool.

 We was over looking at the cool "Stocking Stuffers Gift Guide for Cats"  to see if we could find the Momma a nice present.  Miss Sarah does so much to try to help kitties like me, not to be homeless or out there making more little kitties, and she sells awesome t-shirts and hoodies that aren't just cool, but they save cats lives.  If your Daddy bean needs a present for your Mom bean (or the other way around or something for any bean) they could get one of these in time for Christmas if they do it fast!

Oops, I got off track, sorry.  Anyway... she has a list of the stocking stuffers and we were looking and looking and looking, and we got to lucky number 13 and we found it! And better yet we could get TWO for the price of one!  AND we could make it ourselves and it would be different from anyone elses!

It's from a company called "WEAR SHARE"  and they make, well they help YOU make really cool plastic bracelets with pictures of anything you want on them, and then give you "one to wear - one to share" !  It's really easy and really inexpensive. You use your facebook or instagram pictures to create a bracelet of your own. 
Here's a picture of the one I made for the Momma and my niecy Alexis. There's the Daddy, and Dex, our Nephew Jordan, with my niecy Alexis, and one of just Alexis, my Auntie Suzie, Harry and Tipp and my nicies Justine and Courtney.  It's strange, there don't seem to be any pictures of the Momma, pretty much anywhere.  She says it's because it's her family, and she hates flashy boxes from the front side.  (She doesn't seem to care if I like them or not. Good thing I do, mostly).  
Anyway, it's really easy and if you need a quick present for your beans, just take all those pictures they have of you and put them on a bracelet.  I give it 4 paws up!

Can we be friends ?

our Auntie Susie and Cousin Alexis sent this visit to the Momma today.  We thought we should share it with our friends. We thought maybe the kitty was tasting the dolphin, but the Momma said that dolphins aren't really fishes (uh, they're swimming right?) so it would be ok to be friends.

Our Auntie said when she went to the place in Florida that has the REALLY big aquari-yums that she learned that there is a connection spot under a dolphin's chin for love.  We think this kitty got the headbonks in just the right place.

Enjoy!

A truly talented Artist

Hi everyone, Carolyn here.  The boys are giving me a chance to blog today because I got something very special in the mail yesterday.  The boys bought me an early Christmas present, a piece of original artwork. Now my brother-in-law has done some sketches and prints and paintings, but quite so unique as this.

It comes from a new artist, Quint Cole.  Now for those of you who don't know Quint, he is one of the gang of rescued kitties at Colehaus Cats.  He is one of the newer members of the family and it wasn't to long before it was discovered that Quint has a very special talent.  You can read the story from the beginning, to his process, to his finished works , to his gallery opening!  He is one special little guy with a loving and supportive family willing to help his talents bloom.

I was so happy when my package came!





And there it was... a Quint original! From his stunning "Winter, Series 1, 2012" collection. I shivered. The way he caught the swirling snow, the icy beauty of a hoary frosted morning... well I just felt like I needed mittens and a scarf just to stay warm!




This beautiful work went with me to my office.  I have a special corner of my desk where the beautiful things are... a vase of bamboo, a picture of my husband, some beautiful healing stones and now, close to a bunch of dried lavender flowers from my summer garden, a very special piece of art.  It makes me smile every time I look at it, it's perfect there.






If you need a special gift for someone, stop by Quint's Art Shop, where his work is available.  I understand that some of the proceeds will help kitties in need, and hopefully to buy some more canvases for future moments of inspiration.  I told Quint that I would love to be a patron, should he be moved to create again.  After all, art always looks nice in a grouping.  And it gives Dexter a chance to visit the Colehaus ladies. ( I think he's sweet on them!)

Please make sure to go take a look. Santa's coming soon!

Carolyn (aka the Momma)

Thank you to the Colehaus Cats for permission to use some of their web photos for this post. Purrs

Holy Meow! We gots an award!

We're so excited!   We got an award today!

It came from our friend Basil, the Bionic Cat and it's the ...

 Bring on the Nip! Award.


Now how did he know that 2 out of three of us are Nip heads?  Well, that doesn't matter, it's an honor to be given such a cool award, by such a famous kitty!

Basil has an Purrsonal Assistant ( Hi Ms. Cat!) who has written a really cool book about his adventures.  (Shhhhh... we are putting it on the Momma's Kindle for a surprise Christmas present).  It would make a great stocking stuffer if you need one for someone special (and no, Basil did not ask us to say this, we just know your beans would love it)

Anyway, Many thanks to you Basil

  Now here's some kitties we would like to send this out to:




and


 So all you gotta do is copy and paste the award on your blog.  Please say thanks to the kitties that nominated you and secondly pass it along to other deserving kitties!  

Oh yeah, and enjoy some nip!

Luv and purrs,
Harry, Dexter and Tipp

OMC, IT'S HERE !!!

We've been anxiously awaiting our prize from our friends at Cat Wisdom 101, that we won during the Pink Month for Breast Cancer!  AND NOW IT'S HERE!!!

The Daddy helped us put it together, well, ok, he put it together for us so we thought we'd show you how cool it is!
 Oooo, what's in this box ???

Hmmm.... a big black case ???
Wow, how can this be our condo???
 AH-HA, Look what the Daddy is doing
It's getting bigger...
HOLY MEOW! This is amazing!
The building inspector has to check it out before occupancy.
Tipp and Dex get to hang out inside! 
Look in the back, the rooster has his own condo too!
Hmmm... all it needs is a couple beds and snacks 
and we could hang out here all day!
(Only with supervision of course.)
"Don't worry Dad, I'm holding down the fort!"
The Kritter Kondo is awesome! All three of us could fit in and hang out, although Tipp really doesn't like to be out much (he used to live on the streets for a long time, he likes the cushy indoors much better than the outside now), but there is room for some beds, a small litter box and even snack and water bowls.  As you can see, the floor is all attached, and the big double doors (on each end) lock, so we can't go on the lamb, but we know we should never be in here without the Momma or the Daddy's supervision.  But WOW! We can hardly wait until the spring comes and we can hang out by the deck while the Momma sits and reads to us and 
we can all enjoy the great outdoors together.
Thanks again to Merlin, Odin, Gris Gris and Domino 
(and Ms. Layla too) for this great prize. We sure are some lucky kitties to have friends like you guys (all of you guys and gals out there) in the blogosphere!
Love and purrs,
Harry, Dexter and Tipp (and Momma Carolyn and Daddy Mark)

Call me Dexter the Brave!

Bwahahahaha!    Remember how when my brofur Harry went to the vet ?  Remember he admitted he was a big whiny baby and his knees turned to jello and he cried and cried and hid under the bed for days... (Dex, let's rein that in a bit, I had "some" troubles, but I am NOT a big whiny baby...).... anyway...

So it was my turn yesterday.  I proved my bravery by walking right in to that PTU when mom got it out on Sunday and making it my nappy place.  I went in easy the next morning, and although I didn't like the car ride much... ok, I didn't really like that part at all... I only meowed a little bit, and then settled down to listen to NPR on the way.

When we got there, I was greeted by a pretty girl kitty named Charlotte.  She had been helping Miss Mary with her typing, but she came over to say hi.  She was a pretty, floofy calico girl with big eyes and a pink nose and she made me feel at ease.  Then it was in to see Dr. Chris.  I sat on the table, calm as you please, and she looked at my fierce teeth, my perfect pink ears, my glowing eyes... she squeezed me a bit, and listened to me in a bunch of places, and I must have sounded pretty good, cause she said I was a "happy, healthy boy".  The Momma asked her to check my front feets, where I had that surgery, and it didn't hurt at all, I didn't even mind it. I weighed in at a sturdy 14 lbs, and the Momma asked if I was... well "chubby" (I think she said FAT) and Dr. Chris said no... I was SOLID and a big boned boy!  How bout that Harry? She didn't call YOU solid... did she? (Harry is ignoring me).  Anyway, a squirt of wormy juice (blech) and two shots ( I didn't even flinch or cry) and we were done.  I said goodbye to Charlotte and and then we were home!  I walked in, Harry and Tipp smelled me (what? it's just me, you dufouses) and I went to have a snack.  All done, all good!

So Tipp's turn is Thursday, he seems a little nervous, but he usually seems a little nervous about something.  I told him it was no big thing and he would do fine.  We'll give you a report and see.
Bye for now!
