Oh Yeah, It's Monday...

You know it's Monday when you start the day with a wet willy from your big sisfur...
I still love her though...
We're experiencing the hots here with temps around 90. Closed windows and naps are on the agenda today. What's happening in your neck of the woods?

Hope your day is off to a great start!

Sunpuddle Bliss

What's better than enjoying a sunpuddle on a beautiful summer day?
Sharing the sunpuddle with my little sisfur (and BatCat)!
There's still plenty of room if you want to share some of our sunpuddle too!

Hope you have a sunny weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up

Our weekend technically isn't over until Wednesday but we're wrapping up our weekend so far. We've had glorious weather - mid 70s, open windows and sunpuddles! Of course that meant Mommy and Daddy went to the coast on Saturday. She said it was beautiful over there with lots of tourists and lots of seals hanging out on the rocks...
Yesterday I helped make beady goodies...
I also napped. I deserved it. I work hard. 

How was your weekend?

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Let the Party Begin!

It's finally Friday!
Time to let it all hang out!
We're off work until next Wednesday so I'm looking forward to a really long weekend of doing nothing. You know, the kind of days Isabella has every day. 

What are your weekend plans?

Happy weekend!

Beady Helper

One of our BeadedTail customers purchased some beads online that she had sent directly to us to make earrings. That's a lot of pressure since she hasn't even seen the beads in person yet but thank Cod I was on the bead mat and ready to help...
We sent ideas to the customer for her and then we made these...
And these...
The customer was happy with how they turned out. We are too. Mommy couldn't have done it without me... 
It's a tough job being beady but somekitty's got to do it!

Have a beady kind of day!

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday and although it's my favorite day of the week, I almost didn't do a post. I've been having asthma issues lately. I had three attacks last night just before I had Mommy take this pic...
I had another three attacks as I was dictating this post. I don't know what's changed because I had been doing well, having no attacks, with one Flovent treatment a night. Last Thursday I had five attacks in a short amount of time so Mommy gave me a treatment mid-day. That helped slow them down to one every so often until last night's round of six attacks. I wish I knew what's happening. I don't like having attacks at all. They're scary.

Daddy picked up my Flovent prescription last night and it was $272! Mommy asked if I was worth it. Is that not the dumbest question ever? 

Hope you're having a good Tortie Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a good weekend! Mommy and Daddy had to go to a wedding this weekend. Mommy bought new shoes for it and they came with an awesome box...
She also got a new wrap style black dress which, to avoid getting white furs on it, she didn't try on until 15 minutes before they were supposed to leave. Since the attention at a wedding is not supposed to be on somemommy channeling 80s Madonna exposed bra style, she ran around like her tail was on fire looking for a safety pin. She finally found one and got all put together late but still in time to make it to the wedding. Next time she's going to risk white furs and try things on!
Anyway, today she won't mind those white furs as we relax after our weekend...
Yes, I'm so cute she can hardly stand it! 

What'd you do this weekend?

Happy Monday!

Friday Flashback

We had a long short week again so today came too fast. Since we're not ready, we're going to do a re-run from 2011. We hope you enjoy this flashback with our angel sisfur Sadie!
*************************************
Recently I was napping on my cat tree...
When I opened my eyes and thought I saw something odd...
There was something out on our roof...
I didn't know if I was dreaming so I really tried to focus...
It sort of looks like Sadie but what's she doing out on the roof?
Oh my Cod! I'm not dreaming, I'm having a nightmare!
A three eyed Monster has transformed into my sisfur Sadie!
Cats are such drama queens.
Hope you have a monster free weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

In honor of Independence Day here in the USA, I thought I'd show you my all-American Tortie portrait...
I know what you're thinking, my portrait should be hanging in the Smithsonian's American Art Museum. I think so too but I haven't been contacted by anyone in D.C. yet.

Anyway, since it's the 4th of July, we hope everybuddy stays safe inside.  So far the fireworks here haven't been too bad so paws crossed tonight goes okay too. We'll be huddled downstairs just in case because my sisfur Angel gets scairt.  Nothing bothers me.  Ever. Well, except for my naps being disrupted.

Have there been many fireworks in your neck of the woods yet? 

Hope you have a picture perfect Tortie Tuesday!
Happy 4th of July!

Role Reversal

Boy am I glad it's Friday. I don't know what's got into Mommy but she's been cleaning out stuff all week long. I snoopervised as she cleaned out her jewelry box...
Usually Angel is the one who helps Mommy while I hold down my bed but not this time...
She's spoilt. Anyway, it's a long weekend for us since both Mommy and Daddy are off work until Wednesday. Hopefully I get time off too so I can catch up on my beauty sleep. Being awake Snoopervising is tough to do but someTortie has to do it.

Do you have any plans for this weekend?

Happy Friday!

Tortie Tuesday

Before I can start my relaxing day, I have to help Mommy clean out one of her bead boxes...
After filling a bag weighing more than me, we're finally done...
Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to enjoy my Tortie Tuesday...
I hope you enjoy Tortie Tuesday too!

Zzzzzz,
Isabella

Weekend Wrap Up

For the first hot weekend of summer, Mommy and Daddy went to the coast to cool off. It was only 68 degrees in Yachats while it was 100 here at home. That, and the views, are why it's Mommy's happy place..
For some reason we didn't get any seafood or even one lonely birdie...
We got something better - a box!
It's so big and awesome - I love it! Paws crossed it makes it pass recycle day tomorrow!

How was your weekend?

Hope your last week of June is off to a great start!

PeeS: Happy Birthday to our Grandma from Vegas!

Take Two Cats and Call Me in the Morning

Yesterday morning Mommy had a horrible headache causing her to log off work an hour early to lay down and relax. Trouble is she said she couldn't relax because she felt like she was being watched. I have no idea what she meant...
Isabella had her eyes closed while holding Mommy down so I didn't see anykitty looking at her. That headache clearly made her hallucinate! Anyway, she felt better after a while. No doubt thanks to our help. What would she do without us?

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Tortie Tuesday

You know you were raised by an Alaskan husky when temps in the upper 80s make you melt...
Yeah, okay, so the air coming out from under the cabinet is 75 degrees but still, it's hot.

Is the weather toasty in your neck of the woods?

Enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

PeeS: Our A/C is always set at 75 during the day because that's the warmest our sisfur Sadie could handle comfortably. As soon as the temp hit 76 she would pant. Loudly. At night it had to be 70 or below or I was the only one who could sleep through her panting all night long. I can sleep through anything. Anyway, Sadie had an internal thermostat and she got us all adjusted to those temps too!

Flashback Friday

Next Thursday will be the 5th anniversary of our sisfur Sadie going to the Rainbow bridge. This is the last picture taken of me and Sadie together...
She taught me so much. I still follow Mommy all over the house. I greet her at the door when she's been out. I race her up the stairs (and I always win!). Sadie was the bestest woofie sisfur ever! No woofie could ever replace her in our hearts. We miss her. We miss her smile.

Hope you have lots to smile about this weekend!

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday - my favorite day of the week! I celebrate my Tortieness every day but today I wanted to show you my beautiful Tortie markings...
Do you notice the difference in my markings from one side to the other? It's like two Tortie halves were put together making one whole beautiful me! We're all made up of differences which makes us all beautiful! Only some of us have Tortitude though. Just sayin.

Hope all is beautiful in your neck of the woods today!

Weekend Wrap Up

We had a lazy kind of weekend around here. Between allergies and changes in the weather, our mommy felt pretty crabby crappy all weekend. I did my best at holding her down though...
Despite not feeling well, she took care of the next door neighbor kitties while their mom was away. She introduced them to their first plague rat...
She also took them our crochet snake to play with...
We'd lost interest in it but Dez really enjoyed it...
He's such a cutie pie. Anyway, we plan on taking it easy today since it's back to work tomorrow. It's a tough job being holder downers but somekitties have to do it!

How was your weekend?

Hope you have a great day!

Watch Cats

Dogs aren't the only ones who are good at watching for intruders. We are great watch cats! No intruder will get by us...
Yes, we can see through closed eyes. We're skilled. Seriously.

It was a long week and we're glad it's the weekend. How was your week?

Enjoy your weekend!

Daddy's Girls

Daddy does his best to give us both lots of attention but there's a Tortie tummy in need of scritches....
Maybe Daddy needs more hands.

Is there such a thing as enough attention or should we always have more?

Happy halfway to Friday!

Snoopervising

Somemommy thought she'd make beady goodies while I was napping. Thank Cod I woke up before anything was made...
She should know by now that an inspection must be done first...
Nothing gets by me...
Inspection complete. You may proceed Mommy...
What would she do without me? It's a tough job being a snoopervisor but somekitty's got to do it!

Did you do anything exciting this weekend?

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Trying Something New

Mommy is trying to step our of her comfort zone this year. When her talented, artsy friend asked her to go to an art journaling class she said yes despite her inner voice screaming no way Jose! It was even more intimidating when the class was taught by the lady who designed the journal they used...
It was very difficult for mommy to retain some semblance of order in the midst of the messy chaos that art journaling entails. The mat under their work was supposed to double as their paint palette. Mommy put her paint on a Christmas paper plate she brought. Notice the nice, neat paint puddles not touching...
The Media journal is unique in that it has different mediums as pages. These are two watercolor paper pages with a burlap page in the middle. An ivory card was taped in the middle too...
These are craft paper pages...
This one is canvas and the flowers are drawn on with Scribble Sticks...
The class was six hours long and Mommy was completely overwhelmed. Art journaling peeps speak a whole different language so three minutes into the class she gave up trying to understand what they were talking about. Dina did show the class Mommy's tulips as an example of an alternative to the faces the entire rest of the class was drawing on their canvases. After class was over, Mommy was asked what she thought. All she could say was she was overwhelmed. There was just too much for her left brain to process. She did enjoy spending the day with her friend and she also talked to Dina about her Ragamuffin kitties. She even showed her a picture of us and Dina said we were very cute! Anyway, we're glad it's Friday and all of us are looking forward to movie night tonight...
What's an example of how your peeps have stepped out of their comfort zone?

Happy weekend to you!
