Happy Sadieday!

It's Sadieday and since we've been thinking of food the past couple of days, we were remembering how Sadie loved special foods too!  She didn't get it very often but she loved to lick the peanut butter jar clean - or at least as far as her tongue would reach!
She loved receiving special treats in the mail...
And wasn't always very patient during photo sessions...
But she always had a smile on her sweet face!
We hope you have a smile today too!  Remember to spread those smiles around since you never know who's day you'll brighten with just a smile!

Have a Happy Sadieday and a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Friday Flashback

We hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!  We sure did even though we didn't get a drumstick.  We looked back to the day when we did get a drumstick...
Adios drumstick!
You can't fool a kitty with a faux drumstick.  Just sayin.

If you're shopping on this Black Friday, don't forget to shop local and handmade!  Our BeadedTail shop is online and always open.  So is our friend Sparkle's Zazzle store here.  Several of the BBArtisans are having a sale so check them out too!  

Happy Friday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our furiends here in the U.S.!   We're taking time to reflect on all that we are thankful for today...
We're very thankful for:

All our furiends around the world
Having a loving furever home
Foods and treats

We're also thankful that'll we'll have whipped cream today!  I don't quite understand why we have to pose with a velvet pumpkin though...
Although I am thankful it's fun to play with!
Hope you have many things to be thankful for today!  We hope your home is filled with love and happiness always!

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!
Isabella, Angel and our Mommy

Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!  Yep, I said Tasty not Tortie because why should my sisfur hog all the Tuesdays just because she's a Tortie.  Anyway, Isabella's bowl is dirty so I'm the one who gets to try out some foods sent to us by the kind folks at  We received Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain-free Sliced Beef Wellington and also Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain-free Grammy's Pot Pie...
I'm trying the Grammy's Pot Pie today and we were concerned it'd have whole peas and carrots like certain other brands because we refuse to eat those.  It does contain some veggies but they are mixed in enough that we didn't even notice.  Too bad Isabella noticed that I'm doing this taste test...
Even though her bowl is in the dishwasher, Mommy got her out a small bowl so she could test it too.  Talk about spoilt...
And of course she made sure nothing was left in my bowl too...
The Beef Wellington was a hit with both of us too.  Since we tend to like foods at first and then maybe not the next day so we have a stockpile of foods we won't eat in the pantry, we sampled these over several days and we cleaned our bowls every time.  We give them four paws up!
There are several different flavors of Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain-free foods which you can see here at including one called Thanksgiving Day Dinner!  We're certainly going to be trying other varieties and if you'd like to do the same, be sure to order from where there'll ship right to your door for free on orders over $49!  You can also do auto ship so you're never out of foods or treats or toys or litter!

I kinda like Tasty Tuesday much better than Tortie Tuesday.  I'll have to send out a memo! 

Hope you enjoy something tasty today!

Weekend Wrap Up

Whew!  What a weekend!  We were abandoned all day Friday while Mommy went to her craft show.  It was in a town 30 minutes away so she got up extra early to set up and carry the stuff in four trips from her car in the 24 degree weather all by herself.  Cue the violins here.  This is what half of her table looked like...
She got stuck by a goat's milk soap guy who annoyed her all day long by taking her customers!  When someone would stop at her table he would start talking to them and lull them to his table.  He got major stink eye all day long!  Oh well, we know that Pricilla's Happy Goats Farm makes the best goat's milk soap and her's are in cute shapes like this little mouse named Millie but we call Pipsqueak...
Anyway, she ended up having a pretty good show thanks to one lady who bought six of her bracelets!  We'll be busy helping her restock for her next two upcoming shows so we didn't do much of anything else the rest of the weekend except soak up the sunshine on the dining room/bead making/cat table...
Isabella did help Daddy go through recipes for Turkey day which was also exhausting since he decided to clean out the recipe pile too...
We better get in some naps while we can!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Smile, it's Sadieday!

We're in need of a smile today so we went back to the photo archives to three years ago today and found a smile on the face of our sisfur Sadie as she enjoyed the snow...
She had Mommy bring some snow in for us but we didn't like it as much as she did...
Today is sunny and no snow in sight so we'll smile about that!  Hope you have something to smile about today and every day!  Be sure to spread those smiles around, you never know who's day you'll change with a simple smile!

Enjoy the rest of your Sadieday and weekend!

Here We Go Again...

Once again our Mommy is claiming to be too busy to help us blog.  What's up with priorities these days?  She's getting ready for her first craft show of the season this week so is going beady bonkers yet she's unappreciative of my help...
Unbelievable right?  Anyway, while she's too "busy", we might not be able to post or comment much until next week.   Thankfully we have some sunpuddles here so I'll be hanging out on my sunny Ess...
We hope you have a great rest of the week and we'll get back as soon as we can!

Tortie Tuesday

Tortie Tuesday snuck up on me today.  I was just starting to get cozy for one of my daily naps...
I'd really be cozy if you'd rub my Tortie belly Daddy...
I have the ability to get cozy anytime, anywhere, in any position and then fall asleep for hours.  Nobody else in my family can do that.  Can you? 

Hope you have a pawesome Tortie Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap Up

Our weekend went by fast, did yours?  Weekends should be longer so warm laps are home instead of at work.  I sure enjoyed having our Grandma from Las Vegas here because she always made sure her lap was warm by covering up in a blanket.  Yesterday I went to lay on her lap and I was told I didn't have much time because Grandma had to go to the airport soon.  I was not pleased with this news...
But you can bet I didn't waste a warm lap nap right up until she had to leave.   I think Grandma would've called the airline to tell them to hold the plane until I was done napping.  Don't you?
We had a great time with our Grandma from Las Vegas but we are glad that Mommy and Daddy are home.  Even if it means there isn't always a warm lap available!

Do you cozy up to visitors at your house?

Hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

Happy Sadieday!

Hope you're enjoying your Sadieday!  We sure are because Mommy and Daddy got home yesterday (with no mouse in red shorts).  They came home to find us on our Grandma's bed...
What can we say.  Grandma is from Las Vegas so this is where all the bestest blankets are!
Grandma prefers it toasty just like we do.  Since our sisfur Sadie was an Alaskan husky, she panted if it got too toasty (above 67) so now Mommy and Daddy are used to it being on the chilly side.  We're going to take advantage of some toastyness while we can!  

We hope you enjoy your Sadieday however you please - toasty or chilly!  Also, be sure to find something to smile about and spread those smiles around.  You never know who's day you'll change with just your smile!

We hope you have a great Sadieday and a wonderful weekend!

Finally Friday Again!

We're so glad it's Friday for more reasons than one!  Little did I know what Mommy was planning when I inspected her new mouse earrings...
She was planning to go to California to see a mouse in red shorts and she took Daddy with her!  I do have to admit, we've been spoilt rotten by our Grandma from Las Vegas while they've been gone but we're looking forward to them coming home today.  Wonder if they're bringing us a mouse!

We may not get a post up tomorrow so if not, have a great Sadieday and weekend!  We sure will!

Enjoy your day!

Thankful Thursday

We were recently asked by The Natural Pet Company if we'd like to try out their Interactive Feather Toy.  We love feathers so we sure did!
It came with a wand and THREE sets of feathers to dangle from it!  A couple of them even had bells!  Let's open these up and try them out...
We stalked it like a real birdie...
And deaded it over and over again...
We both loved it very much and it had us jumping all over trying to catch it as it flew through the air.  Here's a short video of Isabella enjoying the Feather Toy...

Even though we both enjoyed it, Mommy got irritated over the string getting all wound up over and over again.  Maybe this happened because of it being wound around the wand in the package? 
Whatever caused it we hope it straightens itself out (get it? MOL!) because it slowed down our play time since Mommy had to keep unraveling it.  Anyway, we give this Interactive Feather Toy four paws up!  We loved it!
Be sure to check out The Natural Pet Company's products for this toy plus some of their nip too!

Do you play with interactive toys too?

We hope you have plenty to be thankful for this Thursday!

Disclaimer:  The Natural Pet Company sent us this Interactive Feather Toy for free but that did not influence our opinion of this product.  Our reaction to it was totally real and not dramatized in any way.  We acted purely on instinct and cuteness.

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday - the bestest day of the week!  I'm going to spend it doing one of my favorite things - napping!
I always snatch the warm spot on Mommy's side of the bed as soon as she gets up...
Oh yeah, what a great way to spend Tortie Tuesday...
Hope you have a cozy Tortie Tuesday!

PeeS:  After her plane being diverted to Medford because of fog in Eugene and then renting a car for the three hour drive back up this way, our Grandma from Las Vegas finally arrived at 1am Monday morning.  Besides catching up on our beauty sleep, we'll be a tad busy this week being spoilt so may not get to comment.  We'll do our best though!

Happy Veterans Day!

Today we are thinking of all the men and women who have served both past and present in the armed services...
We understand that freedom is not free so we are thankful to our veterans for their courage and dedication to our country.  We are proud to be Americats!

We hope you enjoy your Veterans Day!

Finally Friday

We had quite a busy week between helping Mommy with tax returns and then helping with beady goodies...
It's a tough job but somekitties have got to do it...
Anyway, we're going to have a busy weekend too since our Grandma from Las Vegas is coming.  We'll make sure we find time to relax though and get some chin scritches from Mommy...
In order to fit in everything we need to do, we're going to take a short blogcation.  We'll be back Monday or Tuesday so we hope you have a Happy Sadieday and weekend too!

Hope you find some time to relax and  be sure to spread some smiles around!

Amazing? Well, At Least We Are!

Mommy said we had to review a product so we've got pretty high hopes about this thing if the box is telling us we'll be amazed...
It's amazing AND light?  It must be a box of feathers!
Uh, I don't think it's a box of feathers Angel...
Kitty litter?  This is supposed to amaze us?
It's the new Tidy Cats Lightweight clumping kitty litter.  It's "All the Strength, Half the Weight" with long lasting odor control both are what got Mommy's attention.  She doesn't like lugging kitty litter around and also, our facilities are in a walk in closet in her office so she prefers it to stay smelling nice.
Hey, did you just tell everybuddy that we stink?
Anyway, there's two boxes in our facilities and one has this new litter and the other has the old stuff.  One of us uses both boxes and one of us uses just the old stuff.  Mommy likes that it's lightweight but it smells perfumy to her which she worries about us breathing it in.  So, we give this mixed reviews in our house but it is worth a try if your humans struggle with heavy litter.  This big container only weighs 8.5 lbs...
As for odor control, it seems to work for that but of course we don't stink.
Alright little girl, let's see just how strong you really are!
Have you tried this litter before?  What did you think?  Are you picky about what is used in your facilities?  We are and have refused to use anything 'natural' which is of course what Mommy wants us to use.  Having a 50% use rate with this litter really surprised her but we're unpredictable - we're cats for Cod's sake!  

Hope you have a fresh smelling day!
Angel and Isabella

Disclaimer:  Tidy Cats provided us with the new Lightweight kitty litter for free but this did not influence our review of this product in any way.   We have nature to thank for that and you'll just have to trust that we gave our honest opinion because we did not allow any photographic evidence to be taken.
