Dad had some online continuing ed to do. Maggie was snoopervising. By sleeping against his leg she made sure he didn't get too bored and wander off.

Happy 12th birthday Josie and Huggy Bear

I can't believe it was 12 years ago that Josie and Huggy Bear came into our lives as little kittens hanging around outside our apartment. You two are the sweetest cats and great siblings. You taught me how to be a cat, the joys of snuggling, and what it means to be a big brother. I can't wait to share sticky goodness cake later tonight!

Big helpers

Mom is going through old pictures while watching the Olympics, looking for good ones for her 25 year high school reunion. You can see that we are being extra big helpers tonight. As soon as little box was emptied I was in it. Maggie is making sure the lid doesn't come off the other box. Huggy Bear is watching gymnastics. Meanwhile, Josie is downstairs wishing Mom and Dad would come watch tv in the living room like civilized people.

Cute as a button

Mom and Dad got new couches earlier in the year. They worked with the old look of the living room ok, but then Mom found a new rug that looks really good with the new couches. Well that started a cycle that included painting the walls and a new chair. This chair is from World Market and is called "Cute as a Button" but the girls think it describes them in the chair, and not the chair itself. Now I will say Josie is a cute girl. (She was even cuter just seconds before this picture, but it started raining really hard and got her attention.) The other bonus of the new chair is that the old chair is currently up in the bedroom and I've been sleeping in it. I may (gasp!) like it better than my box for naps.

I'm having a poopy day -- literally

The last two days haven't been great. On top of the fact that Mom is under the weather and I should be snuggling with her, I was stopped up yesterday. I kept trying to hack up a hairball (but only produced foam) and then had loose stool that kept making a mess on my furs that Mom had to clean up. Well, we were low on food and Dad had some cheap food in his car for the parking lot cat at work that he gave us, and that, along with some cat grass, has seemed to do the trick to loosen everything up. I've been in and out of the litter box all day, and puked some too. Poor Mom hates to deal with the box anyway, and she's been having to come and check it and me. I've got my purr back, and am starting to feel more like myself, but it's no fun having an upset tummy.

Sorry for the TMI post...

Josie on the new couch

Mom and Dad had just finished vacuuming the couch, so Josie figured it would be a good time to stretch out and get her furs back on it. Doesn't she look so sweet on that gray?

Oh the indignity

First of all, thank you all for your concern about my bloody paw. It seemed to be a fluke. But I'll keep you posted. 

Now, today's indignity... I am a very floofy cat and because of that I sometimes get bad matts in my furs. Well I had a few near my bottom and I couldn't really do much about them, so Mom and Dad bought some electric clippers today at Target and gave me a little bit of a sanitary cut. It's not as severe as the one I got when I had to go to the emergency vet with my anal gland issues last year, but it still wasn't my favorite thing I've done recently. It feels better, but the process stinks.
