Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday, the bestest day of the week!  In honor of Independence Day tomorrow, I thought I'd show you my all-American Tortie portrait...
I know what you're thinking, my portrait should be hanging in the Smithsonian's American Art Museum but I haven't been contacted by anyone in Washington, D.C..  Yet.  They'll come around one day!

Anyway, since tomorrow is the 4th of July, fireworks might start going off tonight so we hope everybuddy stays safe inside.  We'll be huddled downstairs because my sisfur Angel gets scairt.  Nothing bothers me.  Ever.  Mommy has been giving her Rescue Remedy all week to hopefully calm her so we'll see.  I haven't had any since Mommy says I'm so mellow I'd turn into a Tortie slug.  Whatever.  

Hope you have a picture perfect Tortie Tuesday!

Isabella, how come portraits of you always look so sweet, and when my human photographs Binga, she always looks at least half-crazed?

Never mind, I know the answer to that!

Duni said...

Sweet!!!
I have rescue remedy here for both humans and kitties :)

Mommy just loves looking at you, Isabella. You're such a beautiful Tortie. Stay safe, girls. We hope your neighbor's cat will stay indoors these next few nights.

I hope the Rescue Remedy helps. I am counting on my Calming Collar to help me get through the next couple of days.

Bella, you are SO very extra beautiful. My mom just smiles when she sees you and your face...bellissima!

We think we hear the phone ringing. Isabella - must be the Smithsonian now. This gorgeous photo put you in thr front running for a spot at the museum.

With it being as dry as it is here, we are hoping the humans are smart enough to leave the fireworks to the professionals.

PeeEssWoo: Enjoy the fireworks from The RB Angel Sadie - I'm sure they don't bother 'us' any more. I'll probably be hunkered down in the laundry room or maybe even go to bed...I do think Mom will take the flashie beastie out and rekhord 'em again.

I always turn the air conditioner on, whether we need it or not. That seems to help a little bit. We don't like fireworks here either. Especially since everything is so dry this year--I'm waiting for the 'hood to go up like the Chicago fire.

EEEK!

Your portrait is beautiful indeed!

I LOVE your portrait, Isabella! It's full of Tortie goodness. Happy July 4 th to you and your family.

The Farm cats hide under the bed and the goats will all be in the barn early because they do not like fireworks either. You are too sweet for words, Isabella

Grace said...

Great portrait - now that I am so close to the Smithsonian I'll drop by and ask them
What's up with that?"

Jeanette said...

Aww what a sweet baby! That picture makes me miss my torti, Tori. who died last year at 20 years old!

Sandee said...

You are adorable times two. We are heading to the boat with our Little Bit because we don't want her to be scared of the fireworks. We do this every year.

Have a terrific day. :)

PRODUCE? Do you have leaves or berries (dingleberries, ha ha ha)we're not aware of?

Happy Tortie Tuesday, Isabella. I, myself, will be looking up at the sky lights (in my livingroom and the outside sky lights too, hehe) when I hear the booms. I am brave and do not run and hide.....

Ha ROO! What an awesome portrait, Isabella! Maybe it's not in the Smithsonian - but it SHOULD be! Maybe the French (Poodles) stole it and put it in the Louvre! They're sneaky like that!
Great advice about staying INSIDE! Dave and I don't mind the fireworks too much - especially if we're inside.
Happy Tortie Tues!
Play bows,

Isabella, you look gorgeous in your portrait. We hope you and Angel have a fun...and calm and quiet 4th of July.

The Island Cats said...

We love your portrait, Isabella. And we hope the boomers aren't too scary for Angel. We've been hearing them too...but since it's so hot and the a/c is on, all our windows are closed so the boomers aren't too loud.

Ann said...

That does belong in the Smithsonian Isabella. I love your portrait.
Even if your mommy did give you some of that remedy and it made you a slug at least you would be a good old American made slug :)

Hope you have a very quiet July 4th and do not have to hide in the basement with your fursister, Isabella~
