Kicking Off the Holiday on Sadieday!

It's Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. which is the unofficial end of summer so now is the time to enjoy a final fling before fall.  We hope you enjoy your weekend doing whatever makes you happy whether it's running barefoot through the grass...
Or feeling the sand between your toesies...
Or just hanging out in your own yard...
We'll be enjoying the sunpuddles while we can before the rains return in a month or so..
However you choose to enjoy your holiday weekend, we hope you enjoy it as much as we plan to!

Happy Sadieday and have a great weekend!  We'll be back on Tuesday!

Now What?

After all the excitement with the wasp the other day, I can't find anything to do.  I'm so bored...
Sure wish I could find something else to hunt since I am a mighty insect hunter...
Hey, what's that up there?
Who knew dust bunnies can hang from the ceiling!  I think Mommy needs to clean but I'll just take a nap...
My yawn made Mommy yawn - did you yawn too?

Hope you find something fun to do in your neck of the woods,

Birthday Excitement

Mommy says thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday!  She had what started out to be a very quiet day but I thought her birthday should be exciting so I tried to find something to take it up a notch...
And find it I did!  There's no photos of this but right after that picture was taken I found a wasp on THIS side of the screen!  Talk about excitement!  I batted it down and it got on the wall which is when Mommy saw what it was and totally FREAKED out!  She grabbed me from behind which freaked me out so I sorta kicked her a little before she made me get away from the wasp. Then she ran to the kitchen to get something to deaded the wasp all the while yelling at me to stay away which again freaked me out.  Can you tell?
My idea to add excitement didn't quite go as planned although I did make a lovely design on Mommy's arm...
She took the photo with her left hand and she's right handed so it's much prettier than it shows and it bled a lot!  She wasn't even mad at me either!  Anyway, she had first grabbed a bag from the bead box to kill the wasp before realizing how thin the plastic was but she did leave some bloods on it...
She called Daddy at work and he came home to cover my designs bandage her up.  I may have added the wrong kind of excitement but I did make her birthday memorable!  In case you were wondering what Isabella was doing while all this was going on...
Nothing gets her too excited although she did pick up her head for 4.3 seconds when her Daddy came home!

Hope you find some (safe) excitement in your neck of the woods!

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday - my most favorite day of the week!  We had a nice time being spoilt by our Grandma from Las Vegas and now we're getting back to our normal routines like hanging out with Daddy...
It'll be tough to not be spoilt any more but I'll manage.  Somehow.

Hope you have it easy this Tortie Tuesday!

Checking In

Yeah, we know, we're supposed to be on blogcation until tomorrow but we thought we'd check in to let you know that we miss you and we're all doing well!  I've been helping redecorate around the house since our Grandma from Las Vegas is way better at that than our mommy is.  I helped put up these photos including one of our sisfur Sadie...
Isabella has been doing all she can to get lots of attention.  I don't think her feets have touched the floor...
Of course we're still keeping up with our shows on the Birdie Network too...
We're going to need a vacation from our blogcation!

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

Fall is Just Around the Corner

We're not ready for fall but we're starting to think about it especially since this month's BBArtisans challenge is to create an item for Autumn or blog about what you like about Fall/Autumn.   We thought long and hard about this challenge...
Since we don't remember what we like about Autumn, we decided to help Mommy pick some Fall colored beads and chain since we LOVE chain...
Then we helped her put them together to make a necklace.  While we were doing this we remembered something we liked about the change in seasons, how much easier it is to see birdies in naked trees!
Anyway, back to the necklace.  We wanted it to be 36 inches long so it squiggles a lot at the bottom...
It turned out pretty good if we say so ourselves!  What would Mommy do without us?

Even though we like seeing the birdies better in naked trees we're not ready for Fall.  Are you?  

One thing we are ready for is spending time with our Grandma from Las Vegas and she's here visiting us so we're going to take a break until Tuesday.  We hope you have a great weekend!

Off to get spoilt by Grandma!

Taste Test - Somekitty Has To Do It!

We were recently asked by the nice folks at if we'd like to try some new Nature's Variety canned foods called "Pride by Instinct" and of course we said Yes!  We received two flavors to try out - Champ's Chicken and Sherlock's Salmon...
We tend to get finicky and like variety when it comes to canned food and Mommy wants us to have grain free, healthy stuffs made in the USA so we all hoped the "Pride" would be a hit.  Since I was the one awake am the most picky, I got to taste first...
I licked the bowl clean!
I thought both flavors were lip smackin' good...
Isabella tried them after her 8 hour nap beauty rest and she loved both of them too.  We each give them four paws up!

Thanks to the folks at for letting us sample these yummy foods!  Be sure to check out Nature's Variety "Pride by Instinct" foods to see if it passes your taste test and if you haven't done so already, be sure to check out for all kinds of foods, treats, toys, anything you need delivered in the best boxes ever!  

Disclaimer: sent us the canned food for us to try but our opinions are all our own. is offering a giveaway too so be sure to check it out too!

Tortie Tuesday

Everybody has a different point of view and sees things differently.  For instance, in the following photo one might see that my sisfur is blissfully enjoying window whiffs while I am all cozy in the mini cat tree...
However, upon realizing it's Tortie Tuesday, one might also see that my sisfur is blocking the sunpuddle from my Tortie furs while I am all cozy in the mini cat tree. 

No matter who sees what, if each sees something positive then everyone is happy.  As much as I'd prefer not having my sunpuddle blocked, I am cozy in the mini cat tree so am still very much enjoying my Tortie Tuesday.  Even if you find yourself in a situation that is not ideal, be sure to look for the positive and your day will feel much brighter!

Hope you have a sunny Tortie Tuesday!

Resting Up

Whew!  What a weekend!  Mommy was gone a lot with our visitor and since I'm used to her being home all day I missed her.  When they came home, I was the first to run down the stairs meowing loudly the whole way so she heard me coming before she saw me.  I know this makes her feel really guilty but I just can't help myself because I was so glad to see her and of course she was glad to see my cute face too...
She did tell me about some of the things they saw while they were out and I wasn't too interested in scraggly looking trees and marine layer at Cape Perpetua...
Or the sunny coastline at Heceta Head...
But I was interested in how the heck do you groom a fish and why is it different between fresh and saltwater kinds...
I also thought the little dog with the same colors as our angel sisfur Sadie was interesting...
I'm just really glad things are back to normal at least for awhile.  Our Grandma from Las Vegas will be here later this week so I better rest up so I'm fully ready to be spoiled!
Hope your day is filled with whatever you enjoy!

PeeS:  The above photos were taken with Mommy's cell phone.  She has hundreds of photos on her big new camera but hasn't had time to download any yet but if we think she took some good ones, we'll be sure to show them sometime in the future!

Thoughts on Sadieday

Happy Sadieday!  We hope your weekend is off to a great start.  Since we've had a visitor here since Thursday, it got us wondering about how fun (and sometimes scary) it is to have other people in our homes.  I have to admit that it takes me a long while to warm up to others but my sisfur Isabella loves everybody the minute they get here.  The only people I enjoy are our Grandpa from Kansas and our Grandma from Las Vegas.  Our sisfur Sadie went crazy when our Grandpa from Kansas visited and was always the first to greet him...
She did the same thing with our Grandma from Las Vegas and she liked going on strolls with her too...
Other than family, Sadie didn't let anyone touch her.  We'd like to know if you enjoy all visitors, no visitors or some visitors at your house.  Can you tell the ones who enjoy you too?
Mommy wonders if I can tell whether or not someone likes us since it depends on the person on how long I hide out.  Isabella thinks everybody loves her so maybe just some of us can tell how the person feels.  What do you think?

Anyway, whoever you're with today we hope you share plenty of smiles and good times!  Spread those smiles around in order to brighten the day!

Enjoy your Sadieday and your weekend too!

From the Archives - Do Mice Break?

Hope you enjoy this re-run from 2010!
I think Angel's mouse is broken.
I don't think mice are supposed to be in two pieces.
Shouldn't the tail be attached behind the mouse, not beside the mouse?
My mouse isn't broken, it's just broken in.
It's also now twice the fun!

Hope you have a fun day!

Taking It Easy - Finally

What an exhausting week!  We've been cleaning, napping, snoopervising, napping, inspecting, napping, and so on.  Mommy didn't get all the painting done but she got most of it done.  She booted us out of the room otherwise it would've all been done of course.  It doesn't smell fumey for our visitor that's coming today either.  Anyway, after such a hectic week, we're taking it easy today.  I'm in our cat tree, I put my lasers on so you can see me...
After our crazy week, we're taking precautions to stay limber and are still getting our stretches in...
Cats are excellent multi-taskers aren't we?

Since Mommy is going to be busy with our visitor, we might not get the blog updated or comments done.  Good help is hard to find sometimes.

We hope everybody has a nappy kind of day!

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday, the bestest day of the week!  It's the one day of the week that it's all about me but don't tell my daddy that, he thinks every day is all about me...
I love my daddy!

Real men love cats!  Don't you agree?

Hope you have a wonderful Tortie Tuesday!

Back To Work

We had a nice long weekend to celebrate Mommy and Daddy's anniversary but nothing got done around here so it's now back to work!  Not only do we have to help Mommy do tax returns, we also have to help her get the guest room painted because she has a friend coming from Colorado on Thursday.  It looks like you should start up there Mommy since there isn't much wall to paint...
You also might want to take down the pictures and move furniture unless you plan on painting around them...
Come on, get a move on!  Are you even listening to me?
No wonder this has been on the to-do list since May and isn't done yet.  Thank Cod I'm on the job now or else who knows when it'd get done!  

Hope you have a productive day!

Anniversary Celebration!

Today is our Mommy and Daddy's 25th Anniversary!  That's a really long time so it was pretty smart they got married on 8-8-88 so they won't forget as all the years go by...
They are celebrating over the next four days by going to the coast or mountains or hiking or whatever they want to do and then they'll go to Hawaii to celebrate even more this fall.  We might just have a celebration here ourselves with niptinis, chik-hen and ribbons!
Since we can't post by ourselves, we're going to be taking a long weekend again.  We hope everybody finds something to celebrate this weekend even if it's just a brand new morning!  

Happy 25th Anniversary to our Mommy and Daddy!
Angel and Isabella

PeeS:  Happy World Cat Day too!  Cats Rule!
