It's Sadieday!

It's Sadieday!  We know today is a day for things that fill you with joy but Mommy has realized that every day should be filled with joy and anything that fills you with dread should be eliminated if possible.  She always dreaded Sunday evenings since that meant Monday was coming and she even dreaded the holiday season because it meant tax season was coming.  As a result, we have a new motto:

"Don't dread tomorrow because then you lose the joy of today."
~Angel and Isabella

Pretty wise huh?  Of course every day is a joy to us even though we don't express it near as well as our sisfur Sadie did...
Can't you just see her joy?  We hope your Sadieday and every day has something that brings you joy and, as always, lots of smiles!  Be sure to spread those smiles around since you never know who's day you'll brighten with that smile!

Enjoy your Sadieday and weekend!

No No-No Bracelet?

We got a request for a custom No-No bracelet and for some reason those are usually made while we're napping or watching Birdie TV...
There's something about combining cats and a tray full of itty bitty beads that makes Mommy utter the words No-No.  A lot...
Wait, what was that you said Mommy?  This request came with the stipulation that WE have to help make the bracelet?  Did I hear that correctly?
Yep, it's true.  This particular bracelet is for a kitty mom who wants us to help make it and she wants it documented.  (That means we HAVE to help!) Of course that makes Mommy nervous but she'll honor the request by letting Isabella inspect the progress so far...
She didn't allow the Tortie taste test but no doubt that'll come later.   We're so excited to be able to finally help with a No-No bracelet!  Mommy will find out that this will be the funnest bracelet she's made EVER!

We hope you do something out of the ordinary today!

Not Working Wednesday!

Mommy is leaving her job but yet she continues to work Monday through Wednesday until the end of June.  We think that's way too long to wait for her to spend every moment catering to our every need so I took issues into my own paws, er, patooty...
Yep, I'm sitting smack dab on her wrist!  
That didn't stop her from grabbing her phone and taking a photo with her left hand and it didn't stop her from working either!  Don't worry, I'll figure out another way to get her to devote all her waking hours to ME!  

We're ready for our CPA (Cats Personal Assistant) to work for us!

Hope you're not working this Wednesday either!

Tortie Tuesday!

We hope everyone enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend!  I enjoyed it by doing what I love best...
Now, before you get the wrong idea that I'm the only one around here who enjoys a nap or two or twenty a day, I want you to know that the top bunk was being used too...
I think I'll celebrate Tortie Tuesday by doing much of the same!

How did you spend the holiday weekend?

Enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!

Memorial Day Weekend

We're re-running this post from last year but the sentiment remains the same.  We're thinking of those who have fought and died for our freedom but we also still think of our sisfur Sadie every day.  Those of you who met our mommy at BlogPaws knows how close she is to her heart after nearly two years.  Yep, after the lady who wrote a book about surviving pet loss came up to her the first day she was a lost cause!  Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
It's Memorial Day weekend and our thoughts are with the men and women who have fought and died for our country.  We are grateful for their service and our freedom.  Our thoughts are also with our friends and loved ones that we've lost like our sisfur Sadie...

She always had that big ole smile on her face and of course she had a cutie patootie too...

As you remember those who've affected your life this holiday weekend, don't forget to express your love and gratitude for those still with us.  Also remember to spread smiles today and always!

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

Finally Friday!

I'm so glad it's Friday!  Many of you know that our job description includes helping with tax returns and beady goodies but I also help our by inspecting any packages going in or out of the house...
And giving Mommy numb butt by keeping half of her chair warm for her while being so cute she can hardly stand it...
I know you're thinking, "oh Angel, you work so hard around there.  Why doesn't your sisfur Isabella help you?"  Well, she has mastered the Tortie tactic of either napping or hanging out on the cat tree...
Let's just say that it's a good thing Mommy has me or else nothing would get done around here.  It's tough work but somekitty's got to do it and it's not the Tortie!

Hope you have a relaxing Friday!

It's Tough Being Cute...

My tail is really floofy but Mommy can't get it to show up that way in photos yet she tries every chance she gets.  I heard her sneaking up on me - notice the airplane ears...
She thinks she's clever but she's not.  I really don't quite understand the fascination but I wish she'd move on to something else...
Okay, that's not what I had in mind...
Mommy says I'm so cute she can hardly stand it.  Guess the flashy box isn't going away anytime soon. *sigh*

Hope your day is filled with all things cute!

Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday!  I thought I would celebrate by laying in a box on the Tortie colored countertop...
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot, pizza anyone?
Normally I would've got in trouble for laying in a pizza box but Daddy is the one who found me and, well, I'm a Daddy's girl!  

Hope you enjoy a box or a pizza or a Tortie today!

Weekend Wrap Up

We had a nice weekend.  We had lots of sunpuddles on Sadieday but yesterday it rained.  A lot.
Since even the Birdie Network had splotchy reception, I decided to help Mommy make earrings for our Grandma from Vegas...
Hey, Mommy, do you seriously need to show my secrets of smooshing the beads?
Is nothing off limits?  Anyway, since I helped, the earrings turned out very purrty if I say so myself...
And no one would even guess that the beads used to be round until I smooshed them!
What would Mommy do without me?  Hope Grandma from Vegas loves the earrings I smooshed made!

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Happy Sadieday!

It's Sadieday and it's certainly a happy one around here!  Mommy doesn't remember being so happy and stress free!  The past four nights she has even slept ALL through the night no matter what we do to try to wake her up!   Yes, we're wasting away without our 3am treats but as long as she's happy we'll sacrifice the treats.  Anyway, what we've learned from all this is it's important to do things that make you happy and enjoy each moment.  We realize that not everybody can leave a job that's dragging them down but when you're not at work, be sure to do something that fills you with joy.  Our angel sisfur Sadie found joy in puddles...
And offroading...
Whatever you do that brings you joy, we hope it makes you smile this Sadieday!  Be sure to spread those smiles around because you never know who's day you'll change with your smile!

Have a Happy Sadieday and a wonderful weekend!

Finally Friday!

Oh what a week this has been!  As you may have seen on FB, Mommy is leaving her job of 16 years to officially become the right kind of CPA (Cat's Personal Assistant) and totally devote every waking minute to us!  What's that Mommy?  You're not going to be catering to us every minute of the day?  Oh alright.  She still will be doing the other kind of CPA tax stuff for a friend but won't be working nearly as much.  Her friend's CPA firm is in Colorado so that means she'll still be telecommuting from home so we can help her.  She's much happier already with the stress of tax season off her shoulders and as long as our foods don't run out, we're happy too!  Anyway, we don't think we ever updated that the guest litterbox remodel is officially complete!  I was supposed to model it but since I still had valerian root in my system, I wiggled a bit...
Since Isabella never wiggles she'll continue the tour but you can see that the backsplash is complete (ignore the reflection in the mirror)...
It's the same border tile that's in the shower.  The little squares that are lighter colored are actually clear glass with silver at the bottom of the tile.  Hard to tell in photos we know...
Because of the silver glass tiles (and because of cost savings due to expected leaving of job), the fixtures are all chrome...
It's kinda freaky seeing our reflections though!
Of course we have kitty art on the walls...
I think that's everything.  Did I forget anything Angel?
Yeah, the faucet makes the perfect kitty fountain!
That's the grand tour of the new guest litterbox and one good thing about Mommy's job situation is no more noisy strangers are expected any time soon! 

Hope any changes in your neck of the woods makes you as happy as changes have made us!
Angel and Isabella

Oh Yeah...Good Stuff!

We love everything that Mommy brought back from BlogPaws but we especially love a special intoxicating package from the kitties at the Katnip Lounge including feathers and a mousie scented with Silvervine and valerian root...
Oh my Cod kitties, this stuff is good...
It turns me into a wiggly worm pile of floof!
I love you Mr. Mousie even though you have three heads...
Thank you to the Lounge kitties and their mommy and daddy for the potent swag!  We're certainly enjoying it here!

Have you tried Silvervine or valerian root before?

Hope your day is filled with good stuff too!

Tortie Tuesday

After a whirlwind couple of days I'm happy to report it's finally getting back to normal around here...
Well, sort of...
Whether upside down or inside out I hope your Tortie Tuesday is a happy one!

Mommy's Home!

We had a fun weekend with Daddy but apparently we didn't have as much fun as Mommy did at BlogPaws.  She got to meet lots of our blog friends plus make new friends.  She also visited the Katnip Lounge again.  See how excited Salem is to have all the cat ladies admiring her...
Mommy is the one dressed in Miss Salem's colors.
Mommy was also able to meet angel Ginger Jasper's mum Carol who happened to be in Vegas all the way from the U.K. celebrating their 10th anniversary...
As you can see, there's one woofie in the photo and that's our friend Sugar the Golden Retriever who Mommy absolutely adores!  She pet her every single time she saw her and even had breakfast with her and her mom one day.  We don't mind her cheating on us with a woofie as long as it's Sugar.  Besides, we are open to bribes in the form of a a big red box full of swag...
She brought home lots of goodies including a pink Sleepypod that she won!  But no matter how much loot we got there's one thing that I wanted the most...
Pick me up and hold me Mommy...
I love my Daddy but I'm a Momma's girl so plan on spending the day catching up on cuddles!  

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great start to your week!

Bring on the Weekend!

Sure we miss Mommy but we love spending time with Daddy!  He turns a weekend from this...
To this...
Mancave, here we come!

What are your weekend plans?

Hope you have plenty to smile about this weekend!  Be sure to spread those smiles around!

Uh Oh, the Big Red Box

Yesterday the big red box with wheels came out and that usually means someone thinks they're going somewhere. I found out that Mommy thought she was going to BlogPaws. Well, I sat my Tortie tushie on the big red box and gave an adorable look. There's no way she would leave after that!
Hmmm. It didn't work. She continued putting in this big red box. I needed to figure out something else...
Okay, I pulled in non-Tortie reinforcement and told her to try to give an adorable face like mine...
That didn't work either. I figured I might as well get comfy.
My Tortie charm didn't work, Mommy went to BlogPaws.  Oh well, we'll just enjoy our time with Daddy - I have him wrapped around my paw!

Even though Mommy is gone, we'll be reading your blogs and will comment when we can.

Hope you have a great day!
