These two girls are mother and daughter (the daughter is the bigger one, HaHaMeow). Their names are Lyric and Lerryn and they live nearby, along with a Devon Rex and a Sphynx. They adopted Lyric first, and when Lerryn retired from being a momcat, they wanted to add her to the family, too. As you can see, they may not be very curly, but like to curl up!

While we are still eating Young Again Zero Carb, we also eat some canned food--Instinctive and Fancy Feast Classic style (no veggies, no wheat gluten) and an occasional can of something else--Paul Newman's, Avoderm, Halo etc. And a little bit of raw RadCat, too.
Teri steered away from anything with fruits or veggie's in them, to avoid the carbs, but Jen at Young Again explained that wasn't the whole picture! She had Teri read off the protein and fat content on the varieties we had on the shelf...
She said, that could explain why Disco is STUCK! She said to stick with canned foods that have a protein to fat ratio of 2:1, because if it's less than that...guess what? The missing %age is...carbs! For example, pick canned foods that have 12% protein and 6% fat.
Here's a link to a easy to understand explanation and a way to calculate the carbs in canned cat food:
How to read a Cat Food Label and guess what...some of the canned foods we were eating were 18% carbs! We had some stuff on the shelf that was 8% protein and 2% fat! This education thing is kinda hard, but Teri's learning!
Teri learned something, and then read some more, and now she thinks Disco can Jump That Hump!

It's Sunday and after a big rain yesterday and cooler temps, Teri has the windows open and our tent out on the deck again! But before whiffin' the great outdoors, we all had to have baths today...
We usually get baths once a month, but we got them a little early, cuz Disco was kinda smelly! He, umm, pooped on his tail. Sometimes he curls his tail under his, umm, poop chute, and well, you can imagine the consequences...
Teri has other work to do while we are out enjoying the tent...cleaning out the linen closet, going through some clothes to donate, wading through another box of 'to-be-filed' stuff...she's a big procrastinator when it comes to stuff like that.

Some of our newer followers may not know the kitty pictured above...It's Wishnwhiskers Sir Spoticus!
Spot was our Cat Daddy's kitty and part of the 'deal' when they got married, hahameow! He was a Turkish Van cat and a huge kitty. He didn't race up and down the stairs like we do...he lumbered and never ran anywhere, hahameow.
He had to be helped to the Bridge about a year after our Cat Daddy died, when his IBD turned into lymphosarcoma...Teri says he was a comfort to her, because it was like having a little bit of Mike still with us...
Spottie loved that basket and we still have it and it reminds us of him and makes us smile and not be sad, cuz we were lucky to have known him... and if you biggify his photo, you can see his awesome whisker humps up close!

We wanted to tell you how we'll be spendin' our Caturday ( since Teri's heading off with friends to The Annapolis Irish Festival ).
We'll be hanging out on our new Auntie Em Creations Cat Condo!
Teri free-cycled our old perch to our petsitter and we are lovin' our new hangout, cuz there is room for all of us on it! And as you can see, TomTom wishes he had a Lounger out on his patio, too!
Here's a video Teri took before she left this morning!
Oh, and don't forget to do the Saturday Pet Bloggers Hop!

But, he was a good sport about it, unlike many cats he didn't flop down on his side and just lay there, hahameow!

We thought you might like to see our very first Wordless Wednesday post, from way back in August 2009!
It all started with Paw It Forward and turned into her wanting to give our kitties something special...and OhMyCat, did she ever! Here's a few pix of some of the catfamily enjoying their artsy KatNipQuilts! (click on the pix to biggify them!)
