Kitty Cat Nap Time

OK, Kitty Cat Nap Time is almost all the time, but there's a particular time in our house when we all decide it's a good time to nap, and it's usually around 2:00 in the afternoon. We all retreat to our favorite spots and chill out.

Maggie has lots of spots, but on cold days like we've been having lately she really likes the heated cat bed. I'm in my favorite box. You can see how Mom and Dad put the cat bed beside my box in an attempt to lure me out of my box and into heated luxury, but come on, look at that box! I'm pretty sure this doesn't count as us snuggling, but it might be the closest we've come to napping together in some time.

Small box, no problem...

Dad ordered new blades for his razor from Harry's (he really likes them ...) and they came in a little rectangular box. It was a tiny box, but Maggie didn't care.

Small box, no problem...
She was determined to get in the box. She tried for a minute before Mom just opened the box flat and let Maggie sit on it. That still counts, right?

We got a Nano Bug for Christmas. It is like a robotic bug that vibrates around the kitchen floor. We had another one that never really got our attention, but this one has a fuzzy purple tail, and we really like to hunt this one.

Here's Maggie and Huggy Bear investigating the bug. Huggy Bear is really drawn to purples and pinks for some reason, so he was all over this guy.

Of course, no hunt is complete until you put your mouth on it. Huggy Bear got a little excited and almost ate the purple tail, so Dad put it away on an old bread in the kitchen. We usually ignore that table, but Huggy Bear wouldn't be denied, and continued to look for the bug and found it on the table. Dad eventually had to put the bug in a drawer and give Huggy Bear some treats for all his hard work.

Our bug came from Target in the cat toy section, but they have other versions with the kid's toys too. If you don't have one, I highly recommend getting one.

Where else should she sit?

Since Mom's laptop wasn't available Maggie decided to sit on her iPad instead. It only makes sense, really.

Walking to end MS

Mom and Dad have a good friend who has MS. Their friend Nikki was diagnosed about nine years ago, and while she has been doing well recently, it has not been the easiest journey. Several years ago, Mom and Dad started joining Nikki for three mile MS Walk events in Marietta, Ga outside Atlanta near where Nikki lives. Three years ago Mom and Dad did their first 3-Day, 50-Mile Challenge Walk. They did the same walk last year, too, and this past fall they biked 100 miles over two days with Bike MS.

They are gearing up for their third 3-Day, 50-Mile walk, this time in Savannah, Ga. So far, Mom and Dad have traveled 227 miles and raised over $7000 for MS research and patient services. Well, it's fundraising time again, and while I don't do this often on the blog, I wanted to put the request out there for a little support. Mom and Dad each have to raise $1500 to participate in the 3-Day walk. This is one of their favorite events, but the fundraising is so challenging (more challenging than the 50 miles, for sure).

Any support is welcome and greatly appreciated. You can click here to donate to Dad, or click here to donate to Mom. (It's not a competition ...)

Thank you so much! We love the support we get from our amazing cat friends!

Cats cooking their food

So the other day Mom was in the kitchen prepping some meat for dinner and Huggy Bear was begging for some of it. Mom looked at him and said, "Silly Bear, you can't have this. It's not cooked." At the point she realized that you don't see cats sitting around a campfire like hobos cooking the food they just caught. No, we actually eat fresh raw food that we catch. Now we still didn't get any raw meat from Mom, but it certainly was a funny mental image.

Perfect napping spot

Huggy Bear thinks Mom's new iPad is a perfect spot to nap.
