House Guests

Toby and Baby Girl have come to stay with us for a couple of weeks, with mom Bonnie and bean brother Brandon. Everyone is getting along quite well. Yes, the whole family has a thing for black and white cats.

Wednesday Whiskers

Lemieux and Tocchet have been hogging the blog, so it is my turn. Mom says I get very 'intense' when something catches my attention.

Tocchet's Been Tagged

My sweet friend Emma tagged me for the 7 random facts meme, so I will wake up and get to work. Here they are:
1. I was born on St. Patrick's Day in 1992, and have been with Mom from that day on.
2. I have a plate and some screws in one of my back legs, from when I got hit by a car when I was just a young stud.
3. I was quite the hunter in my younger days. Don't even ask the young girl bean about the baby bunny. I stopped hunting when I was about 10, and now I'm an indoor only kitty.
4. Compared to my Momma Cheyenne, I was WAY nicer to the little kitties that the girl beans brought home. That has earned me lots of nicknames, including Uncle Tocchy and Gentle Giant.
5. I hardly ever meow, and when I do it sounds real scratchy. I prefer to be the strong, silent type.
6. I am lots bigger than Ariel and Lemieux, but I hardly ever push them around. (They're too fast anyway).
7. I HAVE to sleep next to Mom at night, even though she says I snore. The nerve! I AM the King Kitty.

I think everyone has been tagged, but I hereby tag anyone who wants to play. The rules are posted below, from when Lemieux was tagged.

Thanks, Efurryone!

In the big scheme of things, my life is pretty low-stress, by design. Today was a sad day, mostly because my employer's cat suffered complications giving birth and lost her kittens. It was a long day too, some other family issues got more complicated, and I was pretty down when I got home.

I want to share these pictures because after just a short time checking everone's blogs this evening, I feel as relaxed as I did when I watched these sunsets.

Thank you all for being there and being you.

I've been Tagged!!

Here are the rules. Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

Samantha Black tagged me!! Here are 7 random things about me (Lemieux)

1. All of my littermates were much bigger and had short hair.

2. When Mom is home, I have to be in the same room as her. If I can't get to her, I cry.

3. My favorite thing to do is go out in the yard with Mom & Ariel & Tocchet to chase lizzards.

4. I am a little bigger than Ariel, but she wins every time.

5. I have lived in 4 houses with Mom in 2 years, including one in Georgia. Mom says we are not moving again for a LONG time.

6. I love my dry food, whipped cream and turkey, but I won't eat anything else.

7. My fur is so soft that everyone says it doesn't feel like cat fur (silly humans, what else would it be?).

I tag Emma, Rocky, Cocoa, KC, Lilly Lu, Mattingly and Tara.

Mom's busy cleaning today, so I'm in charge of the post. This is me when I first came to live with Mom, wasn't I just irresistible? The other picture is of Mom with two of her beans about 23 years ago. She was almost a child herself in those days.
