We are all happy The BBB is better!

Hi all ya'll furries,

Blackie is almost back to his normal self. Those drugs really worked well on him. He even takes his pills with no fear. Not me I would run!

All week Mom sat with Blackie in the walk-in closet. So I would jump on the bed and watch Mom pet Blackie. I just don't understand why they were in the closet. She even brushed Blackie in there. It made me very curious. Miss Simba ran in & out of the closet like a jack rabbitt ... she is nuts.

Now Blackie sleeps with us on the bed at night!

Blackie is not well ; (

Dear Furry friends,

Blackie has not be well in the last 2 days. He has been to the ER vet & his regular vet. All his x-rays & blood work look good, but his is not happy. Yesterday the vet gave him antibiotics and a shot too! He was a very good kitty at the vet.

He is sleeping in mom's walk-in closet a lot. He eats like crazy every time he comes back from a vet visit. Miss Simba is really sad ... she knows something is not right. ; (

They think it may be his gums or a tooth. But it is hard to tell because his gums are black. We hope the drugs work fast to clear anything bad up & he has another visit scheduled soon. ; )

So please add Blackie to your prayers!

We love him a bunch & want him to get well soon,
Tannie Man (Blackie's brother)


Ps. This is a photo Mom took of Blackie Sunday after the vet visit. He likes to rub his whiskers on those pulls. He never chews on the strings just rubs his nose on them ... that was a good sign!

What ? It's all gone ...

There were some cupcakes in this box & Mr. Tannie Man was very interested in the tissue! We saw Mom eating the cupcakes ... she even licked the frosting off her paws. She is strange ... she likes to eat the frosting first with her paws then the cake part. We wonder about her ... a lot!

Miss Simba ... Oh! I see Blackie walking by ... gotta go jump on him!

Profile in Courage ... Mr. Blackie

Hello furries,

Another hard day for me. I have to keep a lookout for Miss S cuz she likes to pretend she loves me then she bites my paws. Mom says they are love bites, but that doesn't fool me ... Miss S is just crazy. Hmph!

Then there is my brother Tannie Man. If he sees Mom pay any attention to me, he runs right over and tries to get Mom to kiss him ... you have seen his sweet looks ~ just like Zoolander.

So here I sit, just waiting for something to happen. There is good news ... sometimes Mom just tippy toes over to me and whispers sweet nothings in my ear ... that way Tannie Man can't hear her talking to me ... I love that!

Mr. Blackie

Ps. I hope all you kitties out there are cool. It's just too hot!

Sunday, July 23, 2006

Kiss Please!

Kitties I use this look on my Mom when I really want to have my own way. She will do anything for me when I pose like this.

Do any of you have any good "secret" looks? Like on Zoolander ~ Blue Steel!
Please share, k?

Tannie Man

BTW, Blackie was in this basket moments ago. But I jumped in and just flopped on him ~ hee hee!

It's very hot Mom!

We can only get our fresh air in the morning because it gets so hot in the day now. So Blackie & I lay by the open window every morning, but not Tuesdays or Thursdays ~ Mom has jury stuff to do. Sheesh! We love it here. Fluffy quilts to lay on & sometimes one of our squirrel friends runs by on the window screen!

Purrrs & head rubs,
Miss S


Ps. This is Tannie Man playing footsie with Mom.

He helps her work at the computer.

Hmm, well, mostly he lays on her keyboard & tries to talk into the microphone!

Miss S waits

Hey I am just as pretty as that Cape Town kitty in the pic below. Hmpf!


We have a crush on a Cape Town kitty! (South Africa)

We were left alone to surf on the computer today & look who we found. Isn't this kitty pretty?

We don't know if it is boy kitty or girl kitty, but we just had to show this photo to you! Tannie Man has learned how to blog now. ; )

So when we are left alone in the house we get on the computer and surf for pretty kitties.

Gotta run ....

Miss Simba's catnip festivity

Miss S is very suspicious of the leafy catnip. She takes her time looking it over. Her usual verdict is "no thank you" not for me.

But she does spend a lot of time watching it, the catnip, upon her final review. Then, without notice she pounces on it. Let the festivities begin!!!

Silly kitty,

Rrramone's kitties: Peek-a-boo & Elvis

Hello Furry Friends,

This is a note from Miss S!

I noticed that all you furries have been wondering about Elvis. You wonder why our Mom likes him and why does she come home with his smell on her jeans. Right?

Well, Mom has a new friend named Rrramone. These 2 kitties let him live with them. And they like my Mom stop by to visit ~ they love to have their pictures taken. Big hams! Our Mom says she asks Rrramone where their cat toys are and then she tosses the toys for the 2 kitties to chase. (She also goes to their kitchen and gives them treats!!)

Rrramone makes sure the kitties never go outside and they have plenty of good places to sleep/sunbathe/birdwatch/etc. If you look at the last post you will see that Rrramone left a comment! Also click on the next sentence to see a drawing he made of Peekaboo! Peekaboo dreams...

I hope that answers all your question? (I am really glad that they are not coming to live with us. Else I would be tired from having to bite so many kitty toes. It is hard enough to chase Blackie around the house to nibble on his toes ... sheesh!)

Meow ... fm Miss S.
The new kitty movie star on YouTube.

BTW< Blackie & I made a movie of Tannie Man. Mom is helping us add music ... come back soon!

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Who me!

This guy is our Mom's new friend. Hmm. We are not sure what to think of him.

We have never met him, but when our Mom comes home from a day outside she smells funny. Her jeans smell funny around her feet. She tells us that is Elvis. He likes to sniff her feet & rub on her jeans when she sees him.

Hmm. His smell makes our tails grow fluffy!!!

What do you think about Elvis?

Miss S on scratching

Miss Simba kitty here. After a nap or having a snack at the food bowl, it is always good to scratch n stretch. I do this in the kitchen under the window. This is also my favorite sun spot. Funny thing, none of us kitties likes to scratch furniture? Mom says that because we just like our kittie condos the best!

Sneaky Mom

My mom is so sneaky. She drops things in my kitty tree and then when I am not looking, she kisses me quick.

I am still a feral type kitty. Kisses can freak me out if I think about them. I know I am a lucky kitty, I can't help it if I am jumpy about kisses or lots of pets! But I do love Blackie, he is my boyfriend. When I am not nipping on his toes, he lets me snuggle with him. Mom says I am a "cats cat".

Miss S on getting too many kisses

Human beans, stop with the kisseys now. We kitties have tender heads & sometimes a kitty just wants to be alone, ok?

One more kiss and I turn green and bite! I am watching you since mom made me her new avatar!

Help... please

Hello to all you fun furries, Miss S here!

This is Blackie and Tannie Man when they were teenager kitties. They would wrestle just about anywhere in the house. I was not around yet! I wish I could have been there to nibble on their pawzies, yes I do.

But, here is the deal, my Mom has a friend who needs some help. She is going on a blind date and is not sure about something. We left her a funny comment with our kitty advice, about blind dates. Would you do the same? Click here if you would like to help, Jody!

Mom says thanks! She is so glad to not have to go on blind dates anymore.
We are too! Strange guys are not allowed in are house.
We get really fluffy tails if they come in-just ask the cable guy!

Dusty Head!

I love to lay in the sun for short periods of time.

Mom laughs at my dusty head...she says, I help her decide when to vaccum next! NOOOOO.. not that bad loud thingy.

Do you kitties get dusty?

Blackie & Tannie when they were kittens

Now you see why I cannot stop kissing these guys!

Many thanks to all the kitties out there, that shared their thoughts on getting kisses. Tannie could not understand why I laughed so much. And thanks to all of you I was extra-motivated to kiss all the kitties even more. Interesting thing about that, Miss S has now be come a kiss addict ... really she wants kisses all the time. WOW, who knew!

Also, I recently received a tag for "5 things".
So I am going to just list 5 things on behalf of Miss S:

Thing I can't do
--Snuggle with Tannie Man, he won't let me

Thing I can do
--Triple axcel jump when mom makes me jump for my stick toy

Things that scare me
--too many to list

Things I love
--nipping Blackies toes when he is just about to fall asleep

Things I hate
--vacuum cleaner

Things random
--I love to jump in my cat tree and back-kick with hind legs really hard

Things I want to do before its over
--snuggle with Tannie

Tannie has a question for Blogger Friends...

Please see Tannie's question below his photo.

Hi it's Miss S, Tannie wants to know if it is possible to be kissed to much? It is possible?

Our mom kisses our heads all the time. When we hear her walking our way, we automatically flatten our ears and wait for the big KISS. She makes a loud noise when she does it. Cept at night, then it is a very soft kiss.

So, what do you think?

Miss S, on behalf of Tannie Man

Sunday, February 26, 2006

Just Miss S =^..^=

Double click on the image to see it better. A little dark, but worth a second look and better seen late in night with the lights off.

You can almost hear her purring! =^..^=

Blackie's Story, it is really last!

Please forgive me for not posting Blackie’s story like I said I would. This type of behavior is frowned upon by Tannie Man. He keeps notes. My, little, evil OWL-ish, computer manager.

So now about The Sweet B, Blacks, BBB….here is his story:

I found him in a garden hose with Tannie Man, when they were very young kittens. So young that their eyes were barely open. They are brothers and I think Tannie is older than Blackie, but who knows!

Blackie was always a reserved kitten. Not a big snuggler with humans. When he was very little, his idea of a cuddle was to sit on your forearm. Really, he would just balance on your arm. Not into the lap. But if you picked him up when he was nodding off, you could cup him in your hands and he would sleep peacefully!

As Blackie grew into a teenage kitty it was clear that Tannie would rule the roost and B would just follow happily behind. Funny thing, the B knew his name but he understood that Tannie would come to anyone who called “Blackie.” Blackie would wait to see if Tannie would respond to his name, if not, then Blackie would trot on over to the person who called him!

About a year ago Blackie had to go to the vet for some issue. He was gone overnight and it was strange. The house felt so empty. Tannie looked sad, Miss S was looking for Blackie all over the house and that day I realized something… Blackie is the glue that holds our furry family unit together! And we did not know it, until that day.

Blackie is a friend to all kitties. He and Miss S are good buddies. Miss S just worships him, even though she loves to nip on his toes til he meeps. Tannie has the best brother. The B will lick Tannie’s head and then sniff catnip with him before a big wrestle.

And for me, well the B is my “big guy”. As my brother says, B may not know who he is or where he is, but he is a very sweet and loving kitty.

Recently he has become very amorous. If I am on the computer, he just waits until I make room for him in my lap then jumps up. Most nights, before the lights go out, he snuggles up to me in bed and rubs his nose all over the book I am reading.

He is my sweet BBB!

Love to the B,
The Whippy Curly Tails in the Toasty South & Lyn

Kitties, ask your humans to tell us where you were found, or born, in their comment. Edsel was found in a TIRE!

Blackie's Story

Hi Furries, Tannie Man here!

Mom has been very busy and promises to post The Blackie Kitty story tomorrow. She has been on the puter a lot.

Today she did have quality time with Blackie, she cuddled him in her arms for an hour. Well, that did not make me too happy, but since he never does that, it was OK this one time.

BTW, this is the evil look I give my Mom when she is on the puter too long. Next I try to take down the metal mini blinds!

A note from Blackie...

Mom has promised to post a story about me tomorrow. I told her these gold kitties have had too much blog time and that I am ready for my story to be told.

We can't wait to hear about the Pawtraits contest too!

Also, I would like to know if there are any other kitties out there that must drink from running water in the tub? Please explain to my mom how important this is. She is thinking of stopping this ritual we have.....HELP.

Toasty-ist regards,
Your furry friend Blackie!

My new shoes, Tannie Man inspection!

Last week I got a great pair of new trendy brown sequin espadrilles.

I was so excited to find them for a mere $29. But there was one other person, ahem, kitty that was more excited than me.....

The Tannie Man

You can see that he is inspecting my new espadrilles and making sure that they work well with his brown fuzzy toy!

Does this go on at your house?

Please share your shoe stories & post your shoe pics....I hope I am not alone!
