Ps: Spottie didn't want to join her sister Dottie in chowing down on Merrick's Thanksgiving Day Dinner and Brighton said he'd rather have Ham and sniffed and walked away, and Carlos was still too nervous to pose for a photo...
Oh, and take a moment to be thankful for our furriends, too and do The Hop today!

Teri is going to make Carlos an appointment at the vets next week so he can be examined and evaluated and hopefully start on some meds for his behavior problem, Pica.
We have a friend who has offered to 'Sponsor' Carlos and help Teri with some of the expenses involved in taking care of him. We are very fortunate to have friends who love us and kitties, too!
If he does well on meds, the couple who came to meet the kitties we have that need homes said they would be interested in meeting him and adopting him!
Teri thinks that just might be the perfect home for Carlos--2 conscientious adults, no kids and a very calm and quiet environment.
We will keep you updated on how Carlos is doing here, cuz we know you all care about him, too!
Oh, and since it's Wednesday, don't forget to Hop!

This lovely lady is Kely Bray. . . She is Coco's mom and she came back home to us when her
owners made the decision to give her up. . .
She is a Grannie cat, 13 years old, but is full of love and life and is seeking a forever home where she can happily live out her golden years. . .
She arrived at our house in April, with her daughter, Bebe, who is 10 years old and such a pretty girl, too.
We were recently contacted by a nice couple who recently lost their 19 year old Cornish Rex and we hope that they come for a visit soon and fall in love with Kely and Bebe. . .
Teri will take loving care of them til the purrfect home comes along. . . whenever that happens.
She is just happy that they are safe here with us, and while they may be a little lonely cuz we don't like to share our "Teri Time', they have the Country Suite all to themselves when we don't have B & B guests and when we do. . . well, then they get to stay in Teri's bedroom and we get bumped to the Rumpus Room at night.
We don't really mind, cuz it's the Cat TV room, too and we have a heated sleeping bag to burrow into.

Here's a blast fromt the past, HahaMeow!
This foursome is some of our kittens from back in 2009! Teri called them the "The Flower Children"...Dandelion, Daisy, Buttercup and Clover.
If you ask "How did you get them to sit still for this cute pix"...patience and about a dozen shots that didn't turn out...just like taking family portraits with kids in them, someone is always looking away, have their eyes closed or is making a face!
And just so you can see, that they aren't born with huge Frootbat ears, here's a pix of 3 Cornish Rex kittens at 11 days old, with little Frooty ears!

Teri's thankful she is is working again, and just finished her 2 week training period and got kudos from her supervisor! She told her that she's been doing really well and that her tech skills are shining through, with great information for their clients and correct, too. She said she appreciates that Teri is on their team!!
We are getting used to her being out day hunting again, but she is still getting used to her 4pm to midnight shift, hence not too much blogging was happening while she was in training.

Last week, we go some very sad news. . . The CatMom of Soc and Spike had a heart attack and passed away suddenly. Teri was very sad all week, because she had been telling Soc and Spike that they would soon be going back to live with their CatMom and now when she looks at them, she feels sorrow at their uncertain future.
Their CatDad was hospitalized recently and it may not be in their best interest to go back home to him right now. . . Teri is so conflicted about what to do, so she will take her time and make a decision with the kitties best interest at heart.
But she knows how important our love and support was after our CatDad died, so she has personal experience to guide her, too. But it will be a difficult decision to ponder for her.
And on a happier note, Teri has tried many things to deter us from unraveling the toilet paper, even fashioning a little toilet paper protector, hahameow! But on one of the cat groups she is on, she saw this suggestion and it works!
You take a liter plastic bottle, the kind that soda's come in. and you use a box cutter to cut a piece as wide as the toilet paper roll and you make a cut across the width of the circle and slide it over the roll. You take the first few sheets and guide it through the opening and use it without having to take it off the roll!
So we think that makes for a Thankful Thursday for Teri, even if we don't get to have fun playing with the rolls any more!

Just in case you think that Coco Couture Cat is the first of our family to wear a wig. . .
This is a Pop Art canvas featuring Nani, who lives on as Teri's avatar from time to time. . .
Nani crossed the Bridge, but is fondly remembered every day when Teri looks at her amazing picture! Sometimes, she wonders what ever happened to the artist that transformed this photo of Nani. . .
She thinks maybe he went to the Bridge, too and found Nani there. . .
Here is something she found on the web about him, just click on his name to learn more about him:
