Wordless Wednesday, featuring Mooji!

Early morning conversation with Mooji the cat:
Mooji: I want out in the yard!
Gillian: You won't like it, it is raining.
Mooji: Let me go!
Gillian: Well, okay.
Mooji: Let me in! Are you trying to KILL ME?

Mooji is one of our extended family and lives in Vancouver, Washington with a doggie pal!

Mooji was born on July 4th, 1999. Teri still remembers that day, as she had plans to go to a parade with friends and she had someone watching the expectant tomcat. When she got back to the house, her friend said that the tomcat had curled up and gone to sleep about noon, so he just left her alone...well, she delivered 5 kittens all by herself, with no complications!

Teri has lost track of one of Mooji's brothers because his family gave him away without Teri's guidance and his new family doesn't respond to Teri's contacting them. One sister crossed the bridge because of heart problems, but that family still has two of our exended family and keep in touch.

Nutty lives in Oregon, with the parents of his original family now, and Phoebe in Louisiana and her family has grown and includes human kids now and the kitties are happy!

This is what Mooji's mom says about him: The dog, Maggie, is a Rhodesian Ridgeback hound. She and Mooji are best friends and whenever possible, sleep together like this. When all else fails, Mooji just uses Maggies the dog as a mattress! I am always complimented on Maggie's good manners towards cats, when I take her out and about. I tell everyone she had a great teacher, her cat roommate at home!

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

ManCat Monday, Brighton Style

This is the ManCat Brighton when he was a tiny kitten!

When he was little, he was found to have a heart murmur, and he went to see the cardiologist. They said he had 3 leaky heart valves and he may grow out of it, but the family waiting to adopt him were afraid to adopt him, so Teri kept him and well, fell in love with Brighton and he stayed here with us.

The murmur went away, but when Teri started working at The Hope Advanced Veterinary Center, one of the perks was being able to see the cardiologists there at CVCA. 

So, finally, 7 years later, Brighton went in for another heart exam and Teri was relieved that he doesn't have any serious issues that require medication for now. 

Of course, Brighton won over everyone he met while at the vets, including the vet! Even though he complained the entire time he was getting his ultrasound, the vet said he sounded like a fire engine siren, hahameow...she put this cute note on his report:

...very confident cat; models clothes in cat shows. (as well as at the vets, hahameow!)

Oh, this is also what his report said: Brighton's valves remain mildly abnormal with no age induced progression. His myocardium is a bit abnormal with regions of both mild hypertrophy and thinning. Rex cats have a predisposition to restrictive type disease, so we will be monitoring him closely for progressive myocardial changes as he ages. For now, we would expect him to do well.

Frootbat Friday

This photo is blurry, but was too cute not to post for Frootbat Friday!

This sweet Frootbat kitty is Picchu, one the the girls we are boarding while their owner is in Afghanistan...

Picchu loves the heated cat bed and soft, fuzzy blanket to burrow under...

Yawn...take that flashy box away and let me get back to my nap!

Wordless Wednesday

Brings new meaning to the term Bun Warmer, Hahameow!

Many of you are probably too young to know about Bun Warmers, but when Teri was a kid, before microwave ovens, there was this thing called a bun warmer that you put on the stove and warmed things like burger buns and donuts.

We like our bun warmer much better, even though our buns are a bit exposed, the rest of us is toasty warm!

Another way to stay warm in this chilly weather and not freeze your buns off... is to stay inside and Hop!

ManCat Monday, Mardi Gras Style!

Are you ManCats ready for the start of Mardi Gras tomorrow? 

Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, and we are supposed to be able to dine on rich, fatty cuisine before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday... We are always hungry now, and hope there isn't a fast in our future!

Cuz Disco has IBD, there won't be any eating of rich, fatty delicacies around here, but we can always dream... and if we can't gorge, at least we can join in the spirited ManCatly fun!

and throw a few beads the LadyCats us your Ta Ta's, HaHaMeow!
