Meezer Rule Wednesday

My rule for today: When your mom is trying to take your picture, make sure you close your eyes tight so she doesn't get them in the picture.
We also want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. We hope that everyone has a safe celebration tonight.

Tabby Tuesday


After eating treats, you always need to lick your lips (and nose) to make sure you've gotten all of the goodness off of them.
Mom says thank you for all of the get well wishes. She sounds a lot like a hoarse doggie right now with her coughing, but otherwise, most of the achyness and some of the tiredness has gone.

Meezer Monday


Mom has the flu, so I have been sleeping next to her, keeping her company. It's really not so bad, except when she coughs. Then she disturbs my nap and I have to go finish it in my Garfield Bed.

Goodbye Dear Friend & Doodle

Our final doodle has incorporated snow. Enjoy!

We were so sad to hear that Icon has gone to the bridge. We will miss him very much. Please stop by and give some comfort to his mom and sisters.

I Got to Climb a Tree and Doodle

Today's doodle is holiday at the beach. Some kitties were wondering how we were going to incorporate this into our doodle, but we think we managed it okay.

I also got to climb a tree yesterday ----well, not really. Mom carried me outside and put me in the tree so she could take a picture. I am allowed outside a bit now. Mom always carries me, but she has started to let me down to walk in the grass a bit now, and every once in a while, she puts me in the tree. I kind of like it, but I never get to stay more than a minute or two.

Friendly Friday and Doodle

Today's Doodle includes Snow People. Can you find them?

Mom was giving us treats and all of us were on the bed together, so Mom was able to take our picture. She says sorry for her foot being in the picture - mol. You can tell how tasty the treats were by Tavi's tongue. We hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.

Meezer Rule Wednesday and a Doodle

The Doodle for today is a Gingerbread Person. We have added a big one to our scene. Mom already has ideas for the rest of the week to update our doodle.

My rule for today is to beg your mom until she starts making you your own warm blanket. She hasn't responded to my begging yet. This was when she was working on our bean cousin's afghan.

Also, the middle picture on Monday's post was a picture of my Belly Button. It is hard to see because my skin is almost the color of my belly furs, but if you look really closely, you can see it.

Tabby Tuesday and Doodle

Here is today's doodle. The theme is Candy Canes. For this week's doodles, we are going to try to keep updating the original picture, and see what we end up with.
Guess what I discovered. There is a really neat thing in the room that is very warm and comfortable to sleep on. Mom and Tavi call it a ham-mick. I have sniffed it before, and will usually put one paw in it, but last night, I decided I just had to check it out. Oh my goodness, it is very comfortable, and so toasty warm. Mom said she put a heating pad in the bottom of it because it is right above the tile floor.

Please excuse the mess all around it. Mom has been shopping and hasn't finished wrapping and cleaning up. It is so comfortable.

Mom also when over to our Uncle M's house and saw Einstein again. Mom keeps going on and on about how cute he is. She said he doesn't meow. He just squeals and growls. She said it is furry cute. His eyes have changed from the blue-grey color they were to a very pretty light amber brown. She also said he has lost the kitten tail as it has developed into a very magnificient, long tail. His furs have gotten longer and even more floofy. He wouldn't sit still long enough to have his picture taken. Mom says she took about 30 pictures, and this was the only usable one as the rest were blurrs or only part of him.

We also want to apologize to everyone. We have been visiting you, but Mom has hurt her right arm (she thinks by using the computer too much) and says it is very hard to type a lot, so we haven't been leaving very many comments. We are hoping she will be back to normal soon.

We are purring that all of our sick kitties and beans get better soon (Luxie, Auntie Deb, Beau, Timothy, Pepper, Miles, Billy, Brandie's Mama, and any other beans or furry friends we've missed). We also want to let Jeter's Mom know that we are purring that he stops being upset and comes back home to stay. We are very sad that he is so sad.

Meezer Monday and a Doodle

It's Doodle Week again. We really enjoy doodling and have fun trying to decide what picture we want to create to fit the theme for the day. Today's doodle was "Tree."


Can anyone guess what this is a picture of??? The picture below might give you a clue.
I was just having a snooze on my back, and Mom came up and starting taking my picture. Sometimes it's hard being so cute and cuddly.

New Treats


Mom got us some new treats. They are Pounce Crunchy Treats in catnip and chicken flavor. They are soooooooo good. The catnip ones are green swirled and look like clovers, and the chicken ones are shaped like little drumsticks. They are so good and yummy, I even got up on the bed to get mine last night.
Even Tavi decided he just had to have some, and he is not a big treat eater. Here he is trying to take mine away from me (not really - Mom gave us enough for us to share).
We used this picture so you could see just how yummy they are. Look at Tavi lick his lips.

And even though it is hard to tell, all three of us are in the picture, because we were all three almost attacking Mom to get more treats. Miss Jade has the nose and whiskers in the right foreground, and Tavi's throat and chest are in the upper left corner. I of course am in the background asking for more treats. If you haven't had any of these treats, you really need to go get some - they are delicious.

It's Done

Here I am posing on the afghan Mom finished last night. It is very soft and warm to sleep on. I keep trying to take a nap on it, but Mom makes me leave.
This is a dark picture, but Mom was trying to show the size of it. It is almost the length of a queen size bed, and covers about 2/3 of the mattress width.
And here is a close up of the texture. The pattern is called Basketweave Throw. Mom got the pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. She said it took her about 6 or 7 days/nights of crocheting about 5 hours at a time. She watched DVDs while she worked on it. The good news is that there is enough yarn left over for Mom to crochet or knit a blanket for me, and maybe one for one of our kitty friends.

Formerly Feral Friday

We want to apologize for not visiting much the last two days. Wednesday night, mom crocheted some and then fell asleep early, and last night, she was helping us by being our typist in The Meezer's chat room. We really enjoyed chatting with everyone. We also found out some great news. The Cats Stephens are moving to our town. It is amazing because there are lots of towns around us - We can travel from Ventura to Irvine and from the coast to Riverside and move from one town to another without seeing a break (about 4 hours North to South, and about 3 hours East to West) and they are moving to OUR town. They will only be about 4 or 5 blocks from us to begin with. We are absolutely amazed. We will have blogging friends right here. We have friends that are close to us, but not this close. (Can you tell we are excited?!?!)

We also want to apologize for not posting a picture of the finished afghan like we promised. Mom hasn't finished it yet. She was too busy helping us with out typing last night to finish it. She didn't do any crocheting at all. She will however finish it today. She is getting off work early and going to visit her sci-fi friend and will finish it over there.

In other news, do you see the prettiness under me??? That is mom's new expensive down duvet and duvet cover. She got the duvet for her birthday. I almost got in trouble the other night. I had some tummy trouble and at 2:00 am I moved from the litter box to Mom's bed and realized I wasn't done yet. I am embarrassed to admit this, but I pooped on her bed. Fortunately, Mom caught me before I finished and was able to stop the poop from soaking thru the cover. She was able to clean it up and throw the cover in the washer right away, so nothing got ruined. I was very lucky in more ways than one...I didn't ruin her brand new birthday present and I didn't get yelled at. Mom just asked me if I was okay and did I need to go back to the box to finish. Considering the time and what happened, she was very nice to me and didn't yell.

Thankful Thursday

First, here are some more pictures of our new cousin. He was busy sleeping and looking cute the last time Mom saw him.

Now, for Thankful Thursday...we are thankful we don't have a new kitten at our house. Mom came home tonight and told us we almost had a new sibling. One of her students found a litter of 3 Siamese kittens in the rain 2 days ago. She told the student that if they couldn't find the owners, she would take them and find a home for them. Fortunately, the student called her yesterday and said that they are back home. Hopefully, they won't be outside in the rain anymore.
And for those who asked, Mom is almost done with the afghan. She has 2-1/2 more rows to go and then the border. We will post a picture on Friday when it is all done. She should finish it later today.

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Meezer Rule Wednesday

Mom is busy trying to make an afghan for her niece. It is Cardinal Red because her niece is a graduate of USC, and cardinal is one of their school colors. So my rule for today is to help mom with her crocheting as much as possible so she finishes it faster so she can pay more attention to us.

Tabby Tuesday

Mom went to Papa's and brought back some of our toys, and 2 of the toys she brought back were our nip ravioli's. Oh my goodness, we had forgotten how good the nip is. I had so much fun licking it and rubbing my head on it, and playing with it. Wow!

Meezer Monday

What? You weren't here all weekend, except for sleeping, and now you want me to come cuddle you? I don't think so. I'm tired from waiting for you to come home all weekend, and I just want to sleep, so GO AWAY MOM!

This, That and The Other

We received these awards earlier this week from our new friends - Skitto, Chayanne, and Peanut. Thank you so much ladies. We are not going to pass them on because we have received these before. Thank you again.

We also were tagged for the 8 random things meme a looooong time ago by Tavi's twin, Vampy Victor. We are sorry it has taken us so long to get to this.

1. When I am out "exploring" at night, and Mom has closed the door with me outside, I knock on the door to get her to let me back in. (Cody)

2. Mom got a new duvet, and I love to sleep on top of it. It is like sleeping in a cloud. (Tavi)

3. I don't bark. I just whine a lot. I whine to let Mom know I want to play with her, I whine to let Mom know I need to go out, and I whine to ask for treats. (Camie)

4. I have super soft furs now. The Mom person says that I feel a lot like a silky, long haired bunny. (Miss Jade)

5. I let Mom know when it is treat time. I sit and stare at the treat jar, and meow...loudly. (Cody)

6. I gave my brother kisses goodbye. (Tavi)

7. I can sniff out chocolate no matter where Mom hides it. Mom says I have been incredibly lucky considering how much I've managed to steal. I have only gotten sick once - when I got into a small back of Semi-sweet chocolate chips. I threw up for a couple of hours and then had runny poops for another couple of hours. (Camie)

8. I have to sleep next to the Mom person on the bed. I won't touch her, but I have to be next to her, except when I have tummy trouble, and then I don't want anyone near me and I hide under the bed. (Miss Jade)

Formerly Feral Friday & Blogoversary

I am in quiet contemplation missing all of our friends, and our brother. We know they are all having fun at the Rainbow Bridge, but our lives seem to be missing something without them.
In other news, today is our 1 year blogoversary. We started blogging a year ago. Mom let us have a blog after Tiki was diagnosed with Diabetes. She wanted a permanent reminder of how we are in our day to day lives - because, as we all know, a lot of beans start to loose their memory when they get older - mol. We have made many wonderful friends over the past year and have lost some too. We miss the ones who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge, or have stopped blogging for one reason or another. Thank you for being our friends for the past year. We love you!

Goodbye Friends

Two kitties went to the bridge yesterday. We were very sad to see them go, but know they are in a better place.

Skeeter, you were a wonderful companion to TBT, LC and Ayla. You were also a great big brother to your sisters. You tought LC and Ayla everything you knew, and were graceful when your kid sis surpassed you in skill. We are going to miss you very much, but know that you were tired of fighting, and ready for some rest. LC, Ayla and Big Thing, our hearts are with you.


Cloud Chaser, we didn't know you, but we know that this world was much richer for having you in it, and it will be a lonlier place without you. We hope your beans know how very sorry we are. We hope in some small way, the purrs we are sending their way help.

We helped Tiki to the bridge 8 weeks ago today, and the comfort we felt from all over the world, helped a great deal. Please stop by our friends blogs and offer a little bit of comfort to them as well.

Meezer Rule Wednesday

Hi Everyone, It's Meezer Rule Wednesday time again. My Rule for today. Every once in a while, you need to commune with the dog - just to see what's up with her and how she's doing. Its a bonus when your Mom catches you because she thinks you are just too cute.

Tabby Toesie Tuesday

The Mom person likes the floof between my toes. I say, this is the closest she is going to get to my toes without being hurt.

Meezer Monday


I decided to do the Picture Meme for my Meezer Monday Post. Here are the rules:


1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.

2. Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.

3. Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture.

4. Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their bloggy tellin' them 'bout it.


The only problem with this is, when I went into my 6th folder, I only had 3 pictures, so I decided to go to my 5th folder, it only had 5 pictures, so I went to my 7th folder, and I finally found more than enough pictures. So, here is the 6th picture in my 7th folder.



Mom was playing with some string with me in a box. I had a lot of fun, but I wasn't exactly looking at Mom, so this is one of our "Outtakes."

We aren't going to tag anyone because we think just about everyone has been tagged. Have a good week everyone!

Silly Saturday

Mom went over last night to play with our kitten cousin. She took some not so good videos of the kitten playing. And just as she was about to save our post, Einstein came along and stepped all over the keys and erased them. Mom had to re-upload them.

(BTW - Mom is saying "What's Stupid?" NOT "What Stupid?"

Finally Friday


Here I am napping next to Mom's pillow. I am waiting for her to come home to us and take a nap. She comes home everyday for lunch and naps with us. We love the extra snuggle time.

This is just a close up of me sleeping. Mom has actually been pretty good about letting me sleep instead of waking me up because she can't help it. We hope everyone has a great weekend.



Thursday, December 4, 2008

Thoughts on Thurday


Well, another week has come and almost gone. Mom just told us that we get her at home for 2 whole weeks for the kids' winter break. We can't wait!

Meezer Rule Wednesday

Here I am taking a nap. If you listen really, really closely, you can hear me snore. Mom was kind enough not to wake me up. She thought I was too cute to disturb. So, my rule for today is... if you look cute when you are sleeping, sometimes, and only sometimes, you will be left alone to continue napping. Other times, Mom's just can't help but disturb you.

Too Cute and Tabby Tuesday

Since our floor is tile, our room gets cold overnight, so until Mom can get some pajamas made for Camie, she gets covered up with her blanket when Mom goes to bed. Mom threw the blanket over her, and she was sleeping so deeply, she didn't even seem to mind that most of her face was covered. Mom thinks she is too cute.And here I am patiently waiting for Mom to break out the Temptations. If she is too late with them, I let her know by meowing loudly at her. Afterall, Mom can't be late with my treatsHappy Birthday Mom!

Monday, December 1, 2008

Meezer Monday

Gotta make sure my belly is clean so that Mom will give me lots of lovin' and kisses.

Easy Like Sunday Morning


Mom has been sleeping a lot, so we are sleeping with her. She said the only thing that would make this picture perfect was if Cody had joined us.

Saturday, November 29, 2008

We're Back

Well, we are back, but we are very annoyed with Mom. Here I am telling her off. She came back on Thursday, and we thought she was home for good, but after about an hour, she left us again. She said she was going to go to dinner. Why would she leave us right after getting home? After dinner, she came home for about 2 minutes and then left us AGAIN. She was gone all night. She said she had to wait in line to get us a new laptop. We suppose it was for a worthy cause, but she was supposed to stay home now. She waited in line all night, but got us our laptop. We are very happy about that, and Mom has promised us she is going to sleep for about 12 hours since she wasn't able to sleep Thursday night/Friday morning. She also promised us she would never leave us all night to stand in line again.


PS - We want to wish all of you a belated Happy Thanksgiving. We are so very thankful to have all of you as our friends.

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Tabby Tuesday


I refuse to look at Mom. She is leaving us today to go to Las Vegas for 2 nights. She and our Papa are coming home on Thursday (Thanksgiving). She promised us they would leave early so that she would be able to spend some time with us before she goes to dinner. We are going to hold her to her promise. But in the meantime, who is going to give me my Temptations?
We'll see you again on Friday.

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Meezer Monday

Mom has been leaving the heating pad out for us (me) to sleep on. It is so toasty warm.
