Farewell 2009

There are only a few hours left in the year 2009. For we kitties dis year has had some bright spots and some not so bright spots - just as everyone else does - but the five of us kitties are doing okay and that's what counts. Our 'beans are doing fine, too. We will probably cellybrate the closing of the 'old' year and the welcoming of da 'new' year by scarfing down some chicken. Mom cooked some up and promised to give us some. Yay!

Since dis is the last post for this year, here are some pictures of -- US!

Mindy - arranging the decor

Moe - resting up, so he can ring in the New Year

Bon Bon - taking care of sonbean's wallet

Cookie - is glad to be home again

Mike - waitin' for da countdown

Waiting to welcome in a new decade - mom says, remember those years ago, all the fuss in 2000 and Y2K?

Wednesday - at the Vet's

We've read the local news at the Cat Blogosphere today. It seems that Cookie is not the only one making a visit to da vet's office. Cookie has had to have more surgery dis morning on what's left of his tail. The vet called to say he will be ready to come home this evening.

Dear Cookie, we wish you did not have to have this done again, and so soon after. We hope you and all the other ailing members of the Cat Blogosphere have a speedy and comfortable recovery.

Monday, After Christmas

We hope everyone had a good Christmas and got spoiled lots. Our mombean got up early Christmas morning and put a stuffed turkey roll in the oven before going over to Mickey's house to say "Merry Christmas" to him, Georgia and Tillie. It takes about an hour to get there, but mom didn't mind because it was a beautiful clear day. Mickey's mombean was coming to our house because we invited her to dinner. She's in this picture behind the person walking by!

Who you CAN see, is Tall Son with Mike. Mike has to be in the middle of everything and doesn't want to miss anything.

Here is Mindy. She thought the green Christmas stocking looked very good with her furs. She applied quite a few furs on that sock.

Moe is keeping watch in the window and from the back of the other sofa he can see how the gift opening is coming along. He is waiting for someone to open his mega bag of Temptations.

Don't know if you knew that Bon Bon is a 'lap cat' or not. Here his is with the other sonbean demanding some scritches and some attention.

We had a lovely day on Christmas, just being together, sharing some delicious foods and opening some fun gifts.

Mombean took this silly picture with a new memory card she got for her camera. For once dat camera was not pointed at us!

We hope that everyone enjoyed a peaceful and joyous Christmas.

Monday and We Have Snow

It started snowing yesterday afternoon. By night, things looked like this

the lights looked so nice shining through the snow.

Mindy says: Today is a special day in our house. It's Tall Son's birthday.

Nearly eight years ago he was eager for Moe and I to join the family, and we did!

Moe says: We like you lots, Tall Son!!

We wish you a Happy Birthday today and our best wishes.

along with extra head butts and kisses. In this picture he is walking towards one of his favorite places to dine out, wonder if that is a hint.

Update at Team Tabby

One of us here recently had surgery at the vet's office. It was Cookie. He had a lump on him's tail. It was bothering him and starting to bleed. The vet told us it was fibrous sarcoma. Well dat's not good. He had to stay overnight and get tests and, yup, needles. When he got home he smelled funny to us and.....the big shock to all of us cats - he has no tail, da vet took it. Well mombean says it was for the best. He does seem happier and he has some awesome looking stitches, which have to come out soon.

Actually we think he's proud of those stitches. If a mancat has to do without his tail, then he can show how brave he is by showing off his stitches. He never even had to wear the Elizabethan collar to keep him from trying to take them out.

Mindy: I think Cookie is a very brave mancat and we are all glad he is feeling much better than he was.

Thursday - Mike Helps in the Kitchen

It's Me, Mike. I am busy cleaning the kitchen sink. You wouldn't believe how important it is to check the sink for little tasty bits that might be there. I think mombean had just rinsed out our can of stinky goodness, so she could put it in the blue bag for recycling.

I am all for rinsing and recycling our food cans to help with reducing waste.

I'm only doing my bit to make sure that no stinky goodness gets wasted either.

Our Post Furrrrrr ..... Friday!

Last Friday was - awful - weather-wise, that is. It snowed then rained, then snowed and rained at the same time. Ugh. We are delighted to report an awesome Friday today! It's going to be nice all day and even into Saturday, yay.

Mike and Bon Bon (Bono for short). We get along well. Buddies....
Did you know that?

Moe - and did you know that I have a BIG mouth?

Mancat Monday

I spent last night on da windowsill trying to keep some cat from looking in my living room window. It was sitting on our deck railing. Now I am tired and crabby.......Moe

Sunday Morning - Post Wedding

After participating in our furcousin Mickey's awesome wedding to the beautiful (now Mrs.) Peach we are chilling after all of the celebrating.



We all gave the happy couple a great send-off as they departed on their honeymoon. They did not say where they are headed but did give a hint on their wedding blog - this photo of a magical house on an island -

Mindy and I have no idea where this is.

A Wedding Today!!

We - Moe and Mindy - both want to wish our furcousin, Mickey (the black cat) and his bride Miss Peach our warmest congratulations as they are married on this day.

Please drop by Je t'adore to leave a wedding gift and wish them well.

Moe: Since they will be married on the rocks by the lighthouse, I wish to present them with this bottle of local fine wine to toast the happy occasion along with two crystal glasses.

Mindy: I could not resist booking this lovely private yacht so that the happy couple may sail where ever they so desire. May they enjoy fair winds and sailing.

Wide Body Wednesday

This is Mike, and he has a wide body. Just look at these photos, it's proof!!

Here's another

Mike also has a big mouth! Plus, he is always saying to mom "naow, naow" - which sounds like 'now' - when she asks if he wants food.

Photo Hunt - Sports

Photo Hunters

The Photo Hunters Scavenger Hunt was started by tnchick, and anyone can play along.

Sailing is a sport which is very popular where we live.

Usually, people concentrate on racing yachts, but this is a replica of a schooner that used to race, as a working vessel, and raced undefeated.

Moe: I'm not much of a sailor, however.........

.......I don't mind staying behind on this wharf and trying my paw at a little fishing - that's a sport too!

Have fun everyone with your favorite sport.

We're Back on Wednesday

Yes, we know we've been gone again. It's not because we wanted to do this, our computer needed a new hard drive. It got it's hard drive months ago, but we were afraid we might have some big problems on account of it's being so old, so delayed putting having it put in.

Well, our fears were genuine. Dadbean installed this new drive and spent days fixing things that got broken, one by one. And this solved our problems? Ah, nope, it's still as slow as ever, but DON'T tell dadbean, okay? We are happy that it works at all and he was able to get it going again and we can blog again.

Cookie: I am near our computer ready to alert someone if things go wrong.

Mike and Bono: We did what we do best - stay outta da way and snooze

Moe: This is my place to wait out the delay. I did try to poke my nose into the computer fixing operation, but quickly decided this is a much better way to spend my time.

Mindy: I wanted to help too, so I read this book on higher mathematics. Meow nice and loud if you believe I hear meow's? Anyone?

New Week = Better Week?

After everything that happened last week, dadbean finally found out what is ailing him - shingles. I hope we don't ever get something like that because he doesn't look very good. Mombean says we prolly won't get these because we haven't had chicken pox....human illnesses are very strange. We cats get lots of rest, eat well and hardly ever's a good life.

Mike: this is a good way to keep your nose warm.

Mindy: My turn, Mike, to stretch out on the cat bed. Stretching and flexing my paws keeps up my muscle tone.

Cookie: actually my spot is THE perfect spot, I can nap, be near the kitchen and watch the back door in case I get the chance to go out on the deck.

Moe: take away that flashy box, no pictures please....see the airplane ears?

Bono: I am helping mombean with the blogging today, aren't I nice?
