Tuxie Thursday

Hi Furrends! This is my first post on Marv’s blog.
I would tell you how we are getting along, but I am sure you are tired of hearing about him…


Marv’s hijinx are starting to wear me down, playing referee between him and Jo Jo is really getting tiring, I need some ADULT company!
And I remembered reading that Katie Isabella got a new tunnel.
So, I used Nellie’s old tunnel here, to visit her.


Katie is the hostess with the mostest!
We had a GRAND time!
I would tell you some of the antics we got into…
But a Gentleman Cat NEVER kisses and tells!
(my twin – Austin taught me that! You rock Buddy…we need to go out for libations and catch up…)


I can’t wait for my next visit!!!
Here’s a Kiss for you Sweet Cheeks!!!


Now I will have the most pleasant of dreams….


Head Butts!





Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day


Today I am dedicating my blog to Queen Penelope


Queen Penelope was a very tiny cat. She did, however have a HUGE personality! When she was living with Mommy, she was exactly as Mommy portrayed her on her blog. She appeared thorny (she hisses, swatted and would bite gently) but she was mostly all bluster and actually was a cream puff.


She actually LOVED road trips! Her first one was about 5 days after she went to live with Mommy and Daddy. Hissy old Licorice was singing the songs of our People, and Nellie chimed in! She continued to sing on all the trips until Hissy old Licorice went over the bridge. When he was no longer singing, she quit. laid back and enjoyed almost all of her trips after that.


She LOVED to go camping! Her favorite place was Lassie Lake (where she camped for 17 years). lassie Lake is where she got “lost” for a week. Mommy and Daddy were sure that she had become Owl lunch. 6 days after she went missing, they went back up and found her sitting on the picnic table. She yelled at them for half an hour about how she went for a walk and they disappeared. After that incident, whenever they went camping, Nellie  was ALWAYS in sight and would immediately go into the tent if they headed towards the boat!


She was a prodigious Mouse Hunter!
She used to lay them in front of the door to the garage. One morning Mommy found 23 dead mice all in a row. She also liked to catch birds. Alas, she caught several humming birds when she was younger, precipitating Mommy to get rid of the humming bird feeder.

She loved to “visit” her friends. In the evenings, she would sit with Mommy when she was reading our friend’s blogs and Nellie would watch closely. Some of her favorites were:


Speedy (especially his videos)

As a matter of fact, Speedy was her favorite Man Furrend!

On a VERY Sad note – Allred – the Devil Cat at the Canine Country Club went over the bridge today! He was Nellie’s partner.


Allred, Vickie will miss you, but I am sure you and Nellie are having a rip roaring time!

There were so very many more, but I have run out of room!
I am sorry that I never met Queen Penelope in the fur… but if it had not been for her, I would not be here. I am helping you all remember her with LOVE



Selfie Sunday #2

Hi Furrends!


I wanted to tell you that I have NOT bitten (or scratched) my Mommy in 3 days! I now come out of my sanctuary in the evening–and last night, I sat on the sofa while my Mommy was reading. The horrible beast was laying on the floor, Kozmo was in the catio and Jo Jo was laying on the top of the cat tree.  Also, I no longer hiss and growl at the horrible beast, I do not run away until she tries to smell me.

Today Mommy was laying on the sofa (all day) as she is still not well and watched television and read. I was in my sanctuary (though the door was open). The horrible beast played chase the ball down the stairs most of the day, Kozmo spent his day in the catio, and Jo Jo, well I am not too sure where she was…. Just before supper time, Mommy said it was selfie time!


Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Cinnamon is waiting for Mommy to throw the ball!!


Jo Jo at the top of the cat tree…can you tell she is miffed that Mommy made her turn around to look at the phone?


Kozmo was having trouble pushing the button of the phone (or was this when I whapped his butt?)

SS-2-5And lastly is me! I am cuddling with my Mommy and I was smiling!

Fun On Friday!

FIRST! I want to thank Ms Ann (and Mr Doug and Ms Zoe of Zoolatry) for the most beautiful header! I am honoured!!!


I thought I would surprise my Mommy.  After she gets home from work, she she opens up the catio, my sanctuary door and takes the horrible beast for a walk.

When she gets back she cuts up chicken and heats up rice for the beast, gives us all some chicken tidbits and then she sits down in her chair.

Today, I surprised her!


When she came out to the living room I was in the Catio with Kozmo.

It is glorious! The breeze is fresh and the birds are so very close!


Oh Dear!
The horrible beast has finished eating and she is coming towards the catio!
Will I be trapped?


Thank Baast!
My Mommy is throwing the beast’s ball for her to chase!
I am safe…but I think I shall go  to my sanctuary anyway.

(Almost) Selfie Sunday (#1)

Good Day dear furrends.

What an adventure yesterday! When my Mommy opened the door to the bedroom in the morning, I rushed out to greet my brother Kozmo! He and I touched noses. There was NO hissing or growling. As Mommy was going to stay home all day and rest, she left the door open. I (sort of) liked that. And I (sort of) did NOT like that.

My new sister Jo Jo and I were OK. I hissed and growled back at her (she started it). But I do NOT like Cinnamon! Every time I see her, I growl and hiss. When I tried to come down the stairs to the main level – where all the fun and excitement happen, she would come and greet me. I would run back upstairs and under my bed!

Last night, when my Mommy went to bed, she did not close the door. This was disturbing for me. I did not want the other animals in my space! Especially I did NOT want that horrible beast of a dog under my bed! That is my SANCTUARY!

Finally, Mommy got everyone out and she and Kozmo and Jo Jo and Cinnamon left and went to bed in the other room. I wanted my Mommy to come and sleep with me…so I yelled at her, she came back and slept with me..for a while. She spent half the night in the other bedroom and half the night with me.

Right now I am in the bedroom by myself. Mommy says shes “I AM Not up for your shenanigans, little boy!”  I don’t understand, I only bit her 8 times this morning!

Now here are some selfies of us for your viewing pleasure. None of us wanted to take any and none of us cooperated (except that horrible dog!)

First is Kozmo


That Kid BITES too much!


THIS is what I think of that BRAT!!


WELL! THIS is what I think of the 2 of YOU!!!


Mommy, you are so very tasty! Er Lovable!


That could not have hurt…you are only bleeding from 4 holes…


I told you to be careful Mommy! How many bandaids do you have on your hands now…? I count 10!


Oh My Cod!!! Quit bleeding on my Catio!!! It will scare the birds away!!!

And Last but not least CINNAMON!!!


Just throw the ball!!! Ignore the blood and the gore! Throw my Ball! Throw my Ball!

PS We were sad to read about Mitalee Honeybee and Esme at Critters in The Cottage! We just now read about it as Mommy has been so very sick and has NOT been keeping up. We LOVE LP and all the Critters. We send our Love, and much Strength.

Starting to get comfortable


Good day dear furrends. I am starting to get used to my new home! I still like to go under the bed when my new Mommy comes into my room, but I will come out for treats…I have discovered I LOVE chicken. And last night I jumped on the bed in the middle of the night and demanded some pets and plays!

I have started to talk to too! I meow at my new Mommy and I meowed back at Kozmo after mommy got home from work today.  I have thought about leaving the bedroom too! When Mommy came in to play with me I peeked out the door and I would have run for the stairs…but THAT DOG was there!


And I played with Mommy for quite a while too. Alas, Mommy is very terrible at playing and taking pictures at the same time. She got lots of blurry pictures of the back of my head, half paws and pictures of the floor.

Mommy is feeling better, the medication she inhales has been helping. She slept better last night as she was not coughing too much.

I told her she should take some picture if my furblings too! They have found it difficult to NOT sleep with Mommy all night. Because I am in Mommy’s bedroom they can not come in. Mommy has been sleeping part of the night in the spare room with them and the other part in her bed with me. I wish she would spend the whole night with me, but I guess Kozmo, Jo Jo and Cinnamon want to sleep with her too.  I will let them.


My sister Jo Jo and I look very much alike. She and I are just about the same size but my  mother says my tail and head are much more manly!


My brother Kozmo spends a lot of time lying at the bottom of the closed door to my room. He talks to me all the time too. I have put my paw under the door to touch him. He is very soft!

And then there is the noisy slobbery beast!


Mommy says that she is a very friendly girl who LOVES cats and would only kiss me, but I am sure she would BITE me with her huge teeth! She barks too and that really scares me! Mommy says that tomorrow is Saturday and she will not have to go to work…she says she will put Kozmo and Jo Jo and Cinnamon in the other bedroom and let me explore the house for a little while. I am looking forward to that!

I am celebrating Friends on Friday with Ann at Zoolatry (and Zoe and Dougie the dog) Queen Penelope could not say enough about how they are so furry helpful with all the animals in the blogosphere! That they are the Best!!!


Look at the wonderful picture Ann made of me!

I’ve arrived…and to prove it, I’m here!

The last few days have been stressful. I went from a cat who lived in a tiny barren room 3 days ago, to flying 6,675 miles from Iran to Vancouver!


The flight was longer. We had to change planes in Frankfurt Germany. I was brought over by a very nice man and I was in a cat carrier and under the seat. I was a good cat. I was quiet and well behaved.

When we got to Vancouver, we had to wait. The customs people had to look at me and it was a long walk to where my new Mommy was to get me! I was afraid! Everything is so very loud! And she had to leave me in my carrier as it was a long walk to her car! Then it was a half hour before we got to my new home.

When I got there, I was greeted by a big dog nose smelling my carrier!!!


I hissed! I have not met any dogs! This enormous beast scared Me!!! My new Mommy realized that I was hungry, exhausted and thirsty. She took me right upstairs to the bedroom, closed the door to keep the other animals out.

Mommy left me alone with a water fountain, lots of yummy food and a nice clean litter box and she went back to work.

When she got home, she opened the door and that horrible dog bounded in! Mommy grabbed it as it lunged towards me with its teeth barred! I did what all cats do! I launched myself towards the threat!


I sank my teeth in deep to give the killing blow, but then I realized that it was my new Mommy’s hand! I retreated to the window sill!


I was crest fallen! I had hurt my new Mommy! She was not angry though. She shooed the fearsome beast out of the room and ran lots of cold water on her hand. While we were distracted by the fearsome beast…the 2 cats who had been poking their paws under the door came in to greet me!


They were NOT afraid of the fearsome beast! They were not afraid of me…but I am afraid of them! I did not hiss, but I made low growls. Mommy knew I was scared and she shooed them out of the room too. She talked to me quietly and she apologized about all the noise and excitement. She said she would be extra vigilant at making sure all the greetings happened when I wanted them to and not before!


I am sure we will become friends when I am less scared.
