Caturday (Cat-ch Up) Saturday!


Yep, the last time you heard from us was last ManCat Monday! What happened to Wordless Wednesday (just post a pix!) or Frootbat Friday??

Too much lounging around??


Dining out with friends??


A little of each, but mostly, Teri has been busy every evening decorating Coco's new ride! 


Coco hasn't been out and about much, but this weekend is the Fancy Cats gala, Carnaval Around de Alleys and Coco and Teri get to attend! 


And next weekend is the National Capital Cat Show and Teri and Coco will be there!


We're not sure how many of our friends follow Coco on her own purrsonal blog, Coco, the Couture Cat, but she'd love to have some new fans! Just click HERE to go and visit her! 

Coco found a spot on the messy dining room table!
And we know not all our friends are on Facebook, and that's where Teri posts those Weekday Kely photos, which everyone says make them smile...

Kely gets to go to work with Teri every day!


Then on September 27th, it's Barktoberfest and yes, Coco will be attending it, too! All this activity! And once the book all about Coco comes out in mid-October, we are thinking she and Teri will be out and about a lot, promoting the book!



If you would like to pre-order a copy of your very own, you can do that on Amazon! Teri is going to have Coco sign a few copies, too and have those available to purchase from us directly! Teri thinks it would be great fun to have Coco Teri read her story to kids at the library, too...

So, it is going to be a busy fall, and looks like us boy cats will have to be satisfied with a few ManCat Mondays and Frootbat Fridays...so Teri better not be skipping any more of those or we just might have to swat her! Or at least, get more noms to make up for the lack of attention!


Ps: At the mention of noms, Disco is proud to announce that he has finally weighed in at just under 14# and probably won't be getting any extra kibble, sad to say! He has been battling the bulge for a number of years and at his heaviest, weighed 16#.


For the past 2 months, after Teri recalculated his calorie needs and found he was getting at least 30 calories too many per day to lose weight, even without the extras he yelled for! 

He is now on track to once again be svelte! His target weight is 12#, so it will be a long journey!

And for you alternative lifestyle cats, here's Disco looking more like a Punk Rocker, hahameow!

But soon it's back to work... 
How may I help you?


And after you stop giggling, don't forget to Hop!

FrootBat Friday!


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!

Wordless Wednesday


Teri's been taking Kely to work with her almost everyday, so there are a lot of photo opportunities, including this sweet 'selfie'...Teri said her neck and Kely's are 'old lady' necks, hahameow!


Kely's also enjoying the 'lap time' she gets at Just Cats Clinic, too...she is getting a fan club that comes by to visit her often!


And after work, Teri takes her out to 'take in some air' at nearby Lake Anne and you can see that she really enjoys sniffin' the air!


 And she and her daughter, Coco the Couture Cat, can share Coco's wardrobe (which is good for Teri's pocketbook!) and here she is in a cute Bella's Prissy Puppie Boutique dress with ladybugs all over it!



And it's Wednesday, so don't forget to Hop!

ManCat Monday, Karl Style

He has decided the comfy chair is nice
Just in case you were wondering how Karl was settling in, after another weekend has passed...
Quite comfortably, it would seem! 

His new family had to make a short trip out of town, so he has an aupurr staying with him and his housecatmate, Oliver! She said there is no more hissing between them, just wary looks...

She said "His name should have been Cassanova, as he's a real lover! He got in bed with me last night and got under the covers and slept by my feet for a couple of hours."

The aupurr should have him all broken in by the time Ray and Mary Ann get back home tomorrow!

FrootBat Friday, Karl Style


Here's Karl (The Cat Previously Known As Carlos) sunning himself in his new home! He has adjusted very quickly, with only a perfunctory hiss at his housecatmate, Oliver.


He is trying to sit still long enough for cuddles, but there is a lot to see and do in his new home! But they have followed Teri's advice on how to introduce them and she is sure it will not take long for them to be buddies!


Ray and Mary Ann have kitten-proofed the house, but with a penchant for eating non-food items,
Karl will need lots of supervision at first, but so far so good. I think a quiet, routine homelike just might be purrfect for him!

Wordless Wednesday


Teri says that taking Kely Bray to work with her everyday has been a joy...


For her, the kids, and the staff at Just Cats Clinic!


For a 14 year old kitty, that until a few months ago never donned a dress or went on adventures...


Kely has shown everyone that old cats can learn new tricks!

One of the Just Cats Clinic staff told Teri that the dress that Kely wore today make her look like a young kitty again...that made Teri smile cuz she had thought the very same thing!

Someday soon, Teri will have to do a Mother-Daughter photo shoot...that would be too cute!

And don't forget to Hop today, too! It's fun!

We are professionals, but you CAN try this at home, Bwaahaha!


Try it in a sunny spot...or not!


A three-some can be fun, too!
