The Cat in the Crate... or Thomas' New Favorite Place

Once again I wish I had a working camera!  Yesterday my son picked up things that had blown behind the bushes during the storm.  Now I mentioned that Zaphy was napping in the wreath.  Last night I stepped out onto the porch and lo, before my eyes, Zaphy was in the wreath and Thomas was in the crate.
Now if I only had a picture of it!!

 "That doesn't mean mom's going to move them, does it??"

"Mom.  You are getting sleeeeeepy.  Very very sleeeeeepy. 
You will leave the wreath and the crate on the porch.  This is a subliminal message."

"We have NO idea why mom likes this."
ps it's in all three shops

We Need Your Opinion!!!

 The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde needs your help!!  Mom made these two new graphics that she wants to put in the store but there's no space!!  We'd like you to look here and let us know what you think in a comment.  Mom is thinking about two from the first column but she isn't sure which and neither are we!!  HELP!!  Purrrlease!!

These are the two new graphics... thanks to our lj friend kittenmommy for the idea!!

Traitors!! (and after I got you new treats even!)

 "Last night I abandoned both mom & Jennifer for dad.  This afternoon mom wished she had a functional camera.  Yesterday we had tornado weather and the fall wreath fell and is on the porch.
So, of course I decided to take a nap in it!!"

 "I abandoned mom for Jennifer and then somehow her door got closed so I couldn't get out.  I am not sure who to blame yet.  Mom tried bribing me with treats last night but it didn't work the way
she wanted.  I otoh got lots & lots of treats & pettings!!  YAY!"

 "Again, mom didn't have a camera to take our picture but we were both about here laying on top of the tub mom's seasonal clothes live inside up in the attic.  We kept posing very well too.  heh heh heh"

This is totally untrue!!  Okay, he didn't get as many as
Star but he got more than one set of treats!!

Spoons, Spoons, Spoons! and Mister Kitten





 "Wasn't me!"

for a friend, who needs some spoons

That's Taking a Looooong Time Mom!!

 "So da kids were at their dad's house this weekend.  Dad was in Memphis at a gig.  (He's going to be playing in Smurfreesboro this Saturday too!!) So we decided that mom should rest this weekend."

"She went to the eye doctor's office today.  Tomorrow she'll see a neurologist, a psychologist, and a painologist.  I think that's right.
So that's why we made her rest.  She probably won't be around tomorrow and we'll make her rest Wednesday too."

"Mom has to put in the price changes for each section by hand!!  That takes a long time!!  But this section is done!!  Whoot! 
(and mom found one section wasn't even showing!)"

"Mom's working on this section now but she's not sure when it'll be done.  She's going to put all of the Halloween stuff on sale first and then all of the Breast Cancer stuff.  The Halloween stuff will come down the second week of November (so other Winter stuff can go up).  The Breast Cancer section will stay on sale through Christmas."

It's Finally Friday Mom!!!

 "Okay mom, everybody will be out of the house this weekend.
Maybe you and I can do a load of clothes!  What?  What??
Of course I'll help you!!"

"Besides, black fur doesn't actually show up on anything.
No, really!!"

PS Charlotte's mom is very very grateful for all of the purrs & prayers sent to her & Charlotte.  I 'talked' to her via Facebook for a few minutes and told her to get some sleep since she hasn't been sleeping very much. - The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde mom

Farewell Sweet Charlotte

[from Charlotte's mom]
I JUST signed on to let you know that between 1:30 and 2:00 this afternoon Charlotte passed away.
Please thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.
She did not seem to suffer until this last day.  Starting last night she seemed to be in pain and frightened. We held her as much as she could tolerate. And sat with her, comforting her with touch and voice as much as possible. I made her comfortable with a soft towel and her own personal room heater in the bathroom. She knew she was loved and was not alone.

Go Back to Sleep Mom!

 "Mom didn't sleep well last night so I made sure that she
stayed in bed by going to sleep in the sink.  That way she
couldn't brush her teeth.  muahahahahahahahahahaha!!
I am the smartest cat in the whole wide world"

"PS mom has sent Charlotte's mom an email & a voice message &
will post again when she hears back from her."

Thomas says...

 "Hey!!  Mom's been doing too much so I'm going to lay on her wrist as much as I can today so she can't type.  Muahahahahahahahaha!  Take that mom!!"

"I am the Master of Evile Plans"
PS We haven't heard from Charlotte's mom today
but we'll post when we hear from her again.

Charlotte's Mom Says Thanks...

 "My mom got an email from Charlotte's mom
this morning when she turned on the 'puter"
Thank you! I received your money [Lee County Clowder was whose donation this was attached to] and your good wishes for her. She is still with us. She drank a little water yesterday and moved to a different "cave" in the house. It's so hard to watch her going through this, she's been with us for so long that it's hard to think about her not being here.  You are nice to send this to help.  Best wishes to you and yours.
"Mommy's friend is a Witchy Woman!!"

Star Wants Votes... okay, maybe he'd rather nap...

 "Mom put me in some silly Halloween contest because she thought my picture looked scary.  HA!  I do not merely look scary I am scary!!  muahahahahahaha!  I love Halloween.  Now if Charlotte just felt better."

Charlotte Update...

 "Mom has heard from Charlotte's Mom.  This is the email she sent..."
Yes I do[PayPal account]. It is listed under this email addy[] and the name  julie hanes all lower case.
Charlotte is still here, still not drinking or eating that we can tell. The other cats are keeping watch over her (Dusty is stoopid but still sweet and a good 'healer kitty'). They stay near her. She is resting on a soft sleeping bag in a corner of the living room. Her breathing is fast (about 6X what the other cats' breathing rate is). She doesn't want to be touched or held. She'll put up with it for a few minutes then jump down and go back to her spot.  She's 17-18 years old now, and has tumors. I don't know if she caught pneumonia when Sean came down with it. Or a cold when Scarlett got one. Or if it's simply time.  For all I know she may pull through this ok. But she's gotten so scrawny and WASTED over the past year or two. And she has "that look" in her eyes right now. Kinda distant and unfocused. And the rasping of her breath is louder than her purr. :(  Her fur looks funny/different too, reminds me of a cat I had once who went in to insulin shock. Her fur looks kinda like that. We are (sorta) prepared to lose her, but sad about it.  I know you understand. She's been with us a long time. I just hope she's not hurting, she doesn't seem to be in great pain, just sick and possibly dying pain. ya know?

Purrs & Prayers for Furfriend Charlotte!

"Our mother was a feral Queen who turned up at a friend of our mom's house already pregnant.  At the time, there were no shelters who took in pregnant kitties.  So my mom's friend (who is allergic to kitties) took her in.  We are two of the babies from the litter and when mom's friend was trying to find homes for the kittens mom said she'd take one.  But her friend had trouble finding Forever Homes
so mom brought both of us to our Forever Home."

"Mom heard last night that her friend's cat Charlotte, who is 17, is sick.  Mom's friend doesn't have any green papers to take her to the vet and is very very sad.  She is worried about Charlotte.  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde and their Feeders are already sending her purrs and prayers and would appreciate all the purrs & prayers others can send Charlotte & her Feeders.  Thanks!"

Whatcha Doing Out Here Mom?? Can We Get in the Way... uh... Help??

 "Ummm, mom?  Why are you putting stuff in our yard??"

 "We need green papers for Jen & Corwyn for Homecoming."
Mister Kitten "But they come home all the time!"
"Never mind.  Hey mom!  I think it's a customer!
Never mind, it's just a leaf."

 "Well, if you won't let me play in the ceiling fan boxes
I want to go back inside."

 "Don't look at me!!  I'm on the job!!"

The World is My Litter Box...

 "I don't like using the inside litter box.
I much prefer the outside one."

 "Hey, mom!  Time for the guard change!!  Hurry up!!"
Yes, this happens at our house all the time...
even when the cat flap is open.
