Wow, sorry it's been awhile, guys!

We have big news...we're in the process of moving! That's why we've been so absent lately, haha.
So don't expect us around much for the next few weeks as we get set up and settled in :)

Once we get done, we'll come let you know what we think of the new place-Mom says we'll like it, but we say "we'll see."

Fanks for your well-wishes, efurryone. I'm still eating and maybe gaining back some weight-Mom's crossing her fingers!

Last night Mom was looking into those cat-sitter videos (psh, as if anyone could sit CATS) and she pulled up a sample of one. Ava stared at it the entire minute and a half and batted at the screen several times. It was so funny. Mom isn't sure if we (me and Pippin) would like one but obviously Ava would.

Also, our grandpa hung a hummingbird feeder by the window-if that isn't soooo entertaining I don't know what is! Besides the fish, that is.

Mmm, I'm hungry. Going to find food. Have a good weekend, efurrybody!

I'm still eating and drinking okay, and from what Mom can tell, using the litterbox. I've been a furry good boy about taking my medicine (mostly-once I got a claw under Mom's nail. Oops.) Still hoping this stuff is gone for good!

We're glad it's the weekend. It's the best time for lounging around with Mom and being loud and breaking things-it's not as fun if nobody's around to know it!

Hope efurryone else is doing good, too!

Turtle's vet visit went pretty well. They're treating him for a bladder infection for now but if he doesn't continue getting better he's got to have an x-ray and a repeat urinalysis. He's on antibiotics and they also gave him some Centrine for bladder spasms.
So I guess that's good news! We'll just hope he continues getting better :)

Monday, May 25, 2009

Hi guys! I have laser eyes in this picture. See my naked spot on my leg? That's where they vampired my leg. It was furry terrible.
I think I'm still feeling okay today. I ate the dry food Mom left in my kennel last night and have eaten several half-cans of wet food throughout the day. I've been rubbing on and mrowing at Mom today, too, which I wouldn't do at all while I've been sick.
I have to go back to the vet really early tomorrow morning so they can make sure I'm still doing okay. I sure hope so! Thanks for your purrs, guys!

Turtle is acting a little perkier today. He has eaten some wet food mixed with water, so hopefully he'll continue to keep that up. He's laying around right now, but he likes to do that anyway. Maybe he'll keep getting better.

Sunday, May 24, 2009

Turtle came back home this afternoon. He's still not himself at all, and Mom never really got any definite answers as far as what's going on. He's hanging in there right now, and will go back to his regular vet on Tuesday.
He doesn't want to eat or drink at all, so if he doesn't start tonight Mom will have to force him to, and she doesn't want to do that. So please keep purring for him :)

xo-Pippin & Ava Grace
Hi efurryone.
Just a quick update (sorry we haven't been around, Mom's been planning then actually having a yard sale. Toooo much work. We'll be posting more normally once the weekend's ofur.) Mom's also been working more than usual to make the green papers which is really good because of this...

Turtle is in the hospital right now because he started howling like he does when he gets barfy (he has food allergies so if he gets into my foods he barfs it right back up) but kept doing it and doing it...then he squatted and peed in the floor!
The v-e-t did some bloodwork and said that his potassium is low, and they want to keep an eye on him because his pee-hole might be a little bit blocked. So he's going to get some waters in his arm (IV fluids) and have to stay to be monitored.
Please purray or think pawsitive thoughts for him! I fight with him a lot but I miss my brofur and I want him to be home and healthy.


Monday, May 11, 2009


You know, the time when I have to go see the v-e-t and be poked and stuff. Turtle has to go with me so I guess at least I won't be all alone.

And Mom ALSO said she might have them get some of my pee because she smells pee somewhere in the house and since I have FLUTD, she has to be furry careful. So not only do I have to get the REGULAR stuff, they have to poke me in the belly and get some of my PEE which is FURRY NOT FUN EITHER.

And that is what I think of all this. Wish me luck!

OMC, we can't believe it's May already!

Flowers are blooming, and there are lots more bugs around! (we like that part, Mom doesn't.)

Ooh, and Mom won a couple of fishes at a school carnival! Their names are Ping and Pong.
Ava is FURRY obsessed with them-she hasn't left their side for one second.

Does anyone's beans watch the new show Harper's Island? Mom has gotten addicted to it but is furry upset because they moved it to Saturday nights. She's nefur home on Saturday nights! Lots of people aren't! What are you thinking, CBS?!

Happy spring, efurryone!

Oh, and we got an award from the lovely Brandi! We'll post it and tag furriends later today-for now it's bedtime! :)
Whew, we have been on the go for this whole last week!
Okay, actually it was Mom who's been on the go. But whatever. Details.

She's had to go to work three hours early every day the last week because her boss is out sick. So we haven't gotten to see her much!

As a result, we've resorted to hanging out with each other. It's not always pretty, but at least we're warm and have company.

Oh! And a great big spider crawled across the floor in front of the couch! We reeeeeally wanted it but you know how Mom is with letting us have the fun things. They're always "dangerous." *eyeroll*

Hope efurryone had a happy Easter!

Mom thought her family was getting together today, but turns out they decided not to and nobody told her! So after church we just lounged and watched movies.

It was the purrfect kind of day. We're trying to convince mom she needs to do it EFURRY day. Don't you guys think so?

Today Mom made a Salsa, Chicken, & Cheese casserole.
She boiled a few chick-hen breasts and didn't use them all... I gave her my best "pretty pweese?" face and got some chick-hens!


Saturday, March 28, 2009

Hi guys!!

Since my mommy didn't buy me ANY cake at ALL for my birfday, I claimed some donuts that were on the counter!

Mom started to gripe at me but she just had to laugh 'cause I just plopped right down on top of them and gave her a furry smug look.

Thursday, March 26, 2009

S'my birfday!

I'm one whoooole year old!
Mom can't believe that at all. It seems like I was just a teeny kitten 'bandoned at the post office!

I got some new toys that are really fun! Here are some pictures of me playin' with them!

And here's Pippin getting ascited ofur MY toy!

I don't have anything asciting planned for today. What's fun to do on your birfday?

Today...I got my head stuck in a cup.

It freaked me out for a minute...then I realized the milk I stuck my head in there to get was running RIGHT INTO MY MOUTH.

Then efurrything was okay.


Thursday, March 19, 2009

So tonight, Mom is going to something called a "Twilight DVD release."

We don't know what that is, really, but we've seen Mom read a book called Twilight a lot. She's also gotten a lot of her friends into it 'cause they talk about it a lot.

Sometimes Mom says she feels silly because she's supposed to be all growned up and she's reading young adult books. Then she realizes she doesn't care! MOL that's the way to be, right? What matters is that she likes it!

She's also really excited for the next movie-it's her favorite of the books 'cause she says she's "Team Jacob".

Maybe she's just a little crazy.

Here are a couple of our not-so-great pictures from our "photo shoot" the other day!

T: Oops! Well, when you get an itchy, you gotta scratch it!

P: I told Mom I was tired of this flashy-box stuff! But she didn't listen. So I showed her!

xo-Pippin, Turtle, & Ava Grace
To the funny farm & mom Jan-
For efurry good picture Mom takes, there's about a furjullion bad ones. She says she'll post a few today to prove it :)

And Mom wanted us to tell all our cat blogger friends:

She has started selling prints of her photography in her shop, which can be found here ( If anybody is interested, feel free to stop in then tell us what you think! (Suggestions and criticism are always welcome, she said)

Efurry now and then Mom gets the urge to take loooots of pictures of us. I mean, she takes pictures all the time but sometimes she follows us with a camera for a FURRY LONG TIME.
So last night we hads a "photo shoot" and here are some pictures of us!!

T: My furs look way too loose, like a too-big jacket!
A: Well, I look AWESOME!!
P: ...way to be modest, Ava.

You all know how much Mom loves Etsy, we're sure.

So here's a chance for you (and her!) to win some free soap!

Pixie Soap is giving away two soaps/soap dish! She has some amazing looking/sounding soaps.

All you have to do is go to her blog and comment about which of her soaps you would pick, or a purchase from her shop will get you entries, too.

In other news, it's very rainy today.
And the temp is supposed to drop. We might even get some of those white flaky things! Crazy Arkansas weather.

Saturday, March 7, 2009

So we asked Mom today what this "Daylight Savings Time" is all about.

And she said something about how the world spins (?!) and that way it's light outside longer.

And it just does not make any sense to us. Day is day and night is night.

Humans are silly.

In other news, We have a gate on our stairs now. Our human cousin Alex (Mom's nephew) is over here a lot and he's almost a year old, so he gets up the stairs in no time. So it's very confusing and sometimes we forget to stop when we run really fast down the stairs.

A: Here's me and Alex when we were reallyreally little, like 4 months or something! We're exactly the same age.

Guess what?

Since both our previous Best Friends sponsor kitties, Loomis and Judas, have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, Mom let us make a new sponsor-friend!
Here he is:

His name is Jinx. He was stuck in a shelter being neglected and developed skin cancer on his nose! They had to take it off. But we still think he's a very awesome Mancat.

If anyone is interested in their own sponsor kitty, you can go here for info and to pick one!

So this evening we're hanging out by the back door as usual, and Mom happened to notice us playing with something. She walked over to see what it was, and it was a THOUSAND-LEGGER. It was like 2 or 3 or 20 inches long and sooo much fun to chase!
But Mom spazzed out and threw it outside with a napkin. Things with that many legs freak her out.
So there goes our fun toy for the day. Poop. Now I'm just having to lay around doing nothing.
Like you don't LOVE to do that, Pippin.
But Mom, I'm sulking because you took away my toy. Sulky laying around and nap laying around are totally different.
Sure, Pippi. If you say so.

(At least it's almost Friday again!!)


Thursday, February 19, 2009

It's finally Friday!

We're soo excited. That means that Mom will get to hang around the house with us, 'cause it's the weekend!
Plus, Turtle's birfday is Sunday-he'll be 4 whole years old!

Does anyone have any of those Catsitter DVDs or something like them? Mom's been looking into getting one for us but she isn't sure if we cats really go for them. Sisfur Ava does sit and stare at the TV sometimes, so maybe it would work.

Thanks to Daisy, we had Mom order an "I'm Tired Of Animal Cruelty" bracelet. We hate animal cruelty more than ANYTHING in the world, and half of the monies go to Best Friends, which is our favorite sanctuary/shelter to support!

Anyway, our typist (Mom) has to go to bed cause even though it's Friday, she still has to work. I call feet bedspace!

Here at our house, we all have a case of the Mondays.
Even Mom, who said she so didn't feel like going to work today.
I personally think that Mondays are furry pointless and there should just be two Sundays, but Mom says then the second Sunday would be Monday. I don't get it but whatever.

Mom gave me part of my birfday present today (my birfday's not til the 22nd but I knew she had it so I gave her my Puss-In-Boots face until she let me have it.)
So Pippin and I played with it most of this evening. It had the catnips on it. Pippin is obsessed with the catnips so he hogged it. Grr.

Ava sat on the shelf above the computer monitor and stared at Mom. For a furry long time. Mom said she started to get a little uncomfortable when Ava just jumped down and walked off! She's furry weird sometimes.

So that was our Monday! Did I mention the Orange Tabbies don't like Mondays? We don't.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Remember that you don't have to have a significant other-only someone you love! So hug your loved ones right now :)

Sometimes late at night I get a crazy look on my face.
And I'll look ofur Mom's shoulder at absolutely nofing for like, a few whole minutes.

Then I take off and runrunrun for a furry long time. Like 10 really long minutes. Just in circles and around things and ofur the furnitures and everywhere!
Sometimes I attack things too when I get these crazies. Like feeties. And the stairs. And drawer knobs.
Then, I jump in a chair and go to sleep for a really long time. I mean, that stuff wears you out!!!

Today I spent allll day sleeping. It was furry rainy and dreary, so it was the perfect day for that.

Our two-legged cousin Alex is in a contest to win some cute baby clothes!
If anyone wants to help vote for him here's how!
-Add SoCal Baby Clothes Co. on MySpace.
-Go to the Contest Giveaway photo album and leave a comment on Alex's picture on page 2. (He's the grinning kid in red!)

That's all! It'd be furry awesome if anyone has time to do this!

In other news, Mom found this amazing Etsy shop (yup, she's obsessed!) called 9 Lives Photography that sells pictures of cats in a Chicago shelter to raise money for them.
Mom bought pictures of Playdough and Ringo, and she'll probably go back for more!
Like she doesn't haf a million pictures of us already! So check them out.

Welp, back to bed for me!

More on Australia-how you can help!

We're letting Mom hijack our bloggie today since it's so important.
xo-P & T

Hey, wonderful blogging kitties and families! I wanted to let you know about the Etsy shop set up to benefit those affected by those Australia bushfires.
For those of you that don't know, Etsy is a website where people sell their amazing handmade wares.
I've donated three pairs of earrings to the shop, and there's some really beautiful stuff there that you may like. Or if you're a crafter, sign up on Etsy and donate an item!
100% of the proceeds go to the Australian Red Cross.
The shop =Oz Bushfire Appeal
Please consider stopping by and picking yourself up something nice or donating your talent. I know the cat blogosphere is so amazing and has done some amazing things.

To Australia-

We just want you all to know we're thinking and praying for you.

We sure hope they get those fires stopped soon. That's so furry scary and we're so, so sorry for anyone who's been affected or who's scared they may be.

This is my first time trying this bloggie thing!
So I'll just tell you a short little story.

Today my Mommy made Valentime's day cupcakes with her friends.
She said they were yummy, and I wanted to give her my opinion so I tried some.

She laughed but took it away from me. Now I'm kinda sad.

Oh well. I can prolly find somefing else to eat!

Also, we're furry sad to say that the awesome mancat Jake has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. We're so sorry we didn't know him better but we'll still miss him furry much.

One more thing...

We know in the year Mom forgot there was a lot that we missed. If there's anything we need to know, friends we need to meet, whatever-please tell us? Help catch us up!

(PS-I think that's what we'll start calling it. The Year Mom Forgot. TYMF. Sounds good to me.)



Mom really does a good job when she forgets something!

If she wants to save money all she has to do is hide it...then she promptly forgets where she put it and finds it a looong time later!

And here's Ava Grace!

Mom found her at the post office this summer and she's about 9 months now. She thinks someone just dumped Ava there. Her full name is Ava Grace #11 Jasmine (Mom's 6-year-old cousin helped name her, hence the middle names :) )

And here she is sleeping on top of me on the couch. We don't get along very much (she's VERY annoying) but she is pretty warm to sleep with!

Anyway, bedtime! Hopefully we can get mom to update this thing occasionally! If you don't hear from us for awhile, email us at and remind Mom that we have friends to keep up with, too!


Thursday, February 5, 2009


We don't know if anyone still even looks at this...Mom completely forgot about the blog even though we tried to remind her mannnnnnny times.
Anyway, we're doing okay! Mom still works all the time and we do have a new sister, Ava...otherwise, not much new to report!
If you ever want to contact us Mom says you can email her and she'll tell us.
Just in case she forgets to check this blog thing :)
