Santa never left our house, ha!

Oops, Blackie has a new pal!


Illustration Friday: "Holiday"

Holiday is really all about the little furry ones isn't it?

This is Mr. Tannie Man helping me to open the box from my Mother in the deep Toasty South. This box was full of presents. But the Tannie was more interested in digging into the big snuggle in. He had no interest in the presents.

Tannie has the true Christmas's not about the presents!

Meow from all:
The Whippy Curly Tails in the Toasty South!

Tanner's Toy Ball

Tannie Man likes to catch his toy ball in his hind toes! LOL

Illustration Friday: "Surprise"

FLASH goes the camera! The kitty squeezes his eyes shut just in time.

"Why does she always sneak up on me? I am not posing for any more Christmas card pictures, meow!"

~Tanner (Tannie Man), Whippy Curly Tail in the Toasty South

Dog toys, what's up with that?

Oh well, so much for trying to get a cute photo for a Christmas card. The Whippys did not care for the doggie holiday props and really did not care for the Christmas tree. No climbers this year. Too much dry food, making all kitties sleepy. =^..^=

Do you think that they have been sipping on the egg nogg too ! ?

Blackie's watch...birds?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING from the Toasty South.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful photo of Blackie. He is always watching for birds and squirrels.

Update on Blackie's diet...well, today I treated him to a big scoop of his favorite kitty is Thanksgiving. Otherwise we are doing OK. It is hard to not give him some dry food when his looks at me in his most sad way. But he is a happy cat!

Hey dad, where's the FOOD?

I just love this photo. These are my brother's kittys waiting/begging for food....any kind of food. Any other beggers out there...?

Oh to be a DOG!

Our mom went to visit some friends in the Toasty Humid South.

She met this cute pup named Queso.

Mom said we would not like him because he likes to jump and lick faces a lot! We think he is cute to look at though. Click HERE to another picture of Queso.

Illustration Friday: "Remote"

As I emerged from the remote side of the jungle, I tippy toed softly as I know the jungle creatures were watching my every move.

(& I knew that if I didn't get home soon some other backyard critter would eat my Fancy Feast dinner....meep!)

Double click on my picture, my mom says she likes how pretty my face looks in this IF!

My Sweet Baby "T"

I love to snuggle in my mom's lap. She always makes room for me even if she is blogging. Now that it is getting chilly in the Toasty South I must find mom's lap more often or this basket will do!

This is us playing with our new stick toy--it has this yellow tassle on it, we love it. We love our new cardio program!
xxxooo Miss S =^..^=

Miss Belle's Portrait

This little kitty is my brother's lastest addition to his family. He took a picture of her while I was giving her a good head scratching. Click on the photo and check out her eyes...there are no enhancements here...pretty cool!

BTW...Blackie is doing well. He is so much more active. I have given him some of his favorite dry...just a little bit! But the good news is I got him Wellness dry food and wet. He is note quite sure about this new stuff. Time will tell...

Many thanks for all the nice comments for Blackie....he loves all the kitty support!

Please send dry food, The BBB

S.O.S. from me, is making me a cartoon, yikes.

I feel like a Whippy Curly Tail today!!

llustration Friday: "Fresh"

I love my little kitty
her coat is so warm.
And if I don't hurt her
She'll do me no harm
I won't pull her tail,
Or drive her away
And kitty and I
Very gently will play.
~by Mother Goose

Blackie is wishing his "fresh" wet cat food would morph into a big bowl of dry food. Sorry BBB.! He is doing great on his new diet of no dry food. I thought I would give him a boost in his morale and feature him in Illustration Friday this week. Enjoy! =^..^=

Mother & Son

These 2 are so funny. Momma Cat "MC" chases her son Happy Cat all around the house. My brother thinks that MC would rather be a solo kitty. It's like Happy never left home to strike out on his own...ha!

Anyway, they love to snooze together. They are so ying & yang. BTW...MC is spending time with my mom in another city in the Toasty South. Happy has a new roomie, Miss Belle. They both live with my brother Pablo. =^..^=

Miss S and BBB's Heart Bowl

Yesterday we had a day of cat games...since the BBB needs his cardio workout, every kitty gets a workout. This is a picture of Miss S later in the evening. She was in the midst of a cat bathe! =^..^=

Blackie's heart bowl is quite here is a closer look. By the way The BBB is doing great. He seems to have more energy and is back to wrestling with his brother, Tannie Man. I am sure it is helping that I am playing with him. I realized I had been spending so much time on the computer, time I use to spend with the kitties. More time for kitties now! =^..^=

Blackie's Hope : heart bowl

Saved Kitty--The Story

My brother has rescued a kitty that was homeless! I will provide a detailed story tomorrow. Kitty was tested and found to be a healthy male, who had been fixed and declawed. Kitty got a bath too! Photo is of kitty, in my garage, before kitty was taken to the Vet. All is well for the kitty! =^..^=

The story, as told by my brother, typed by me:
The white kitty was adopted by the family of one of the people that works at our vet. The white kitty's information was posted on several "lost" pet web sites. We believe that the kitty was abandoned by a family that moved long ago. The kitty was very thin and appeared to have been on his own for a long time. He is beautiful now and will be plumped up with some love and daily feedings! =^..^=

Blackie's weightloss progress

Hi from Tannie Man, Mom says thank you to all the nice furry blogger friends for the diet tips for my brother Blackie.

See the photo of Blackie, above, that is him laying near where is food bowl use to be. He is not quite sure what is going on and is showing his feelings by keeping his ears down. Miss S and I think he is napping near where the bowl was to make sure he knows if it comes back. :(

The BBB loved his white ceramic heart decorated food bowl. We discovered something funny about The B--we think he liked the food bowl more that his food. Mom felt bad for him and gave him a spoonfull of his favorite dry food. But he would not eat it because it was not in the ceramic heart bowl. Meow, whats up with that??

Good news...because of The BBB needing to have a cardio workout, Mom has played with us all morning! She did not get on her yucky computer thingy until many hours today! We do not like the thingy that she taps taps taps gets more attention that we do! (Mom, says she is going to the Pet Store today to see about new wet we say THX, we love new stuff to eat, Meow......) xxx ooo Tannie Man =^..^=

Blackie needs Diet Tips...blogger friends help!

Dear blogger furry friends, Blackie has gotten very chubby and is not to comfortable. I have removed his kitty bowl that always had lots of dry food in it. The other kitties have no interest in dry food! He is so sad when he walks to his bowl and sees no dry food...I filled it with a small amount of wet food. My poor BBB.

Tonight I played with Blackie and the gold kitties...feather sticks and toy balls. Do any of you have any diet tips or feeding recommendations?

I would love to hear your pets feeding habits. xxx ooo The Whippy Curly Tails =^..^=
