Please help me find a home

This is my brother & sister-in-law's cat Greta [in the foreground and on the right]. She is a gorgeous, petite, very shy girl who lives in New Hampshire. Her mom & dad have taken jobs on a cruise ship and cannot take her with them. They are desperate to find the right home for her and they have to leave on January 6th. If anyone in thinks they would like to make Greta part of their family, please email me at Ideally, we'd like to place her with a family in the New England area, but transportation can be arranged.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Lemieux!!!

Lemieux: It's my birthday, and I hope I'm going to get spoiled a little extra.

Mom: I'm sure you will. We all love you sooooooooo much!!!

Nice Matters

Check below for today's post.

Our good friends and adoptive family, Samantha & Tigger, nominated us for this award. We are honored and humbled. The kindness, generosity and camaraderie we have experienced around the cat blogosphere is heartwarming. We don't get to blog too much right now, but we sneak a peek at our friends' sites whenever we get a chance, and we love you all so much!
We'd like to nominate Missy & KC & Emma, who are the ones responsible for us joining the blogosphere and sticking around.

A Present! How Wonderful!!

Ariel: Ooh, a present!! I think it's for me!
Lemieux: No, Ariel, it's for all of us.
Mom: Look, even Captain wants to see. And yes, that is Tocchet's tail peeking out in the back.

Ariel: I'll open it for us.

Look, I'm getting it all by myself!

Mom, Tocchet, Captain, Lemieux & Ariel: 'Thank you, Samantha, Tigger & Mom, you are the BEST!!!

Mancat - Variation on a pose

Tocchet: Here I am in my usual pose, but not my usual spot. Mom takes us out in the yard sometimes, and this is my outside throne.

Mom: You are so regal, Tocchet. Good news, everyone. I just got a new job. That means we'll have more time to blog for the next month or so, but then we'll really have to plan our time carefully.

Tabby Cool and Tuxie Toesies

Ariel is keeping cool in the tropical summer heat, and Tocchet gives a wave of the paw to say thanks to Kat for his Momma being "Cat of the Day".

Mancat - Where's My Throne?

Tocchet: Mom, my throne is missing!!!

Could it be hiding in the curtain?

It is still not where it belongs.

What in the world is it doing up here?

Mom: Relax, Tocchet, I just have to clean the floor.

Tocchet: About time! It's good to be the King Kitty!!

Tired Tuesday

Ariel: Mom, I'm tired, go away.
Lemieux: Yeah, Mom. Ariel found a froggie in the house REAL early this morning. We played with it a long time, and we didn't even deaded it.

Tocchet: Yeah, and then I had to get out of bed to check things out.
Mom: Well you all woke ME up before 5 am with all the noise you were making, so now it's my turn. OK, go back to sleep.
P.S. Mom saved the froggie.

Mancat Monty Monday

FYI to all who asked: Tocchet will put the bitey on anyone who tries to touch anywhere but the head or top half of his back. He is surprisingly quick for an old guy, and he has huge teeth!

While looking through old photos this weekend, I found this picture of Tocchet from 1995. I guess he was a little less shy then!

Mom: No Ariel, it's for the junk in the closet.

ARiel: But Mom, I like it.

Yep, it's mine!!

Tough Day Thursday

Update: Thanks for the tips. Looks like the consensous is to try the Feliway. We've been using the feline pine for two years, no one seems to mind. I have three boxes in two rooms and they seem to all use the same 2 for the most part. I bought one of those pans with litter yesterday, figuring that if her problem was an infection I could put it in our evacuation kit. They ripped the cover off it right away, so I guess they like it. Maybe I'll give them variety if that's what will work.

Lemieux: Tocchet and I had a tough day today. Mom got out the carriers and took us to the V-E-T. Tocchet got a shot and I got poked at.

Mom: Tocchet had to get a rabies shot, in case we have to evacuate any time this hurricane season. Lemieux is having 'improper elimination' issues. Dr. Hassel says no infection, she's probably stressed. I thought all went well when the houseguests were here...maybe not. Anyway, I've gotten rid of the throw rugs, and I'm in the process of scrubbing (again). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

We all enjoyed a quiet evening in the yard. Tocchet was too deeply undercover in his jungle for a photo.

Snuggly Saturday

Lemieux crawled in to the linen closet thinking she would get some quiet time. She made too much noise getting there, though, so I had to interrupt for a minute!

Thoughtful Thursday

Ariel looks like she's thinking about something - she looked so cute I had to stop before I went out the door and grab the camera. When I came back 3 hours later, she was in the same spot.

Whisker with Catitude

Lemieux thinks Mom is awfully silly!

Tabby and Tuxie Tummies

Well, the house guests are gone!!!!
Lemieux is taking back her bed.
Ariel is so relieved she is showing some tummy.

Tocchet, well he'll show a little tum from his favorite perch anytime.
Mom needs a day or two to get things back in order, then we should be back on our regular blogging schedule. We miss everyone!
