One Month to Go

We know we've been quiet and not visiting much so we wanted to let everyone know that all is well here. We actually enjoyed a weekend away from tax returns with open windows and sunpuddles...
Mommy thinks I'm so cute with the sun lighting up my ears and I have to admit, she's right. Anyway, the countdown is on for tax season to end so we can resume our normal schedule of napping and playing instead of working. We're sorry to be scarce but the end is in sight.

We hope all is well with you!

Enjoy your day!

This Is Us This Week

We've been kind of quiet around here since 'tis the season of taxes. Don't worry, we take time off to watch snowflakes...
We've also been quiet since we've all had to go to the vet for our check ups. I had a follow up blood test after the one I got for my dental last fall showed I was close to having hypothyroidism. Well, now I do have it. Since I turn into the Tasmanian devil when given a pill, I have to have stuffs put on my ear every day forever. Because this isn't as easy to regulate as a pill, I'll be tested more often to see how I'm doing. 

Isabella's exam showed that she's dropped in weight from 14.75 lbs to the same size as me - 11.2 lbs. Turns out she's hyperthyroid too! None of us would've thunk it! She'll get pills every day forever since she has no teeth but she'll swallow it in half a pill pocket. A whole pill pocket is too big to swallow. Other than us both being hyperthyroid and Isabella having asthma, our tests showed we're healthy and doing well as senior kitties! 

As for Lexi, her exam was fine. She's 57 lbs and just plain hyper. She'll be spayed soon but the vet suggested she go through a heat cycle first. Oh joy. He said that waiting decreases hip and joint problems, however, it also increases her chance of cancer from 1% to 5%. Since the hip issues are more likely, she'll probably have to wait. Whenever it's done we're all hoping it calms her down. She's been in obedience school for five weeks and will officially flunk out at her final class next week. That is if Daddy takes her. It's not that she's a dumb dog like Bella and I think she is, because actually she's super smart. It's because she's too friendly and wants to play with the other dogs and their peeps. She listens to Daddy as long as he has treats but she knows when he runs out so does the doggy version of  "lalalalala, I can't hear you!" Let's just say, she better be glad there's a room full of witnesses! Anyway, she's a pawful in public and we're hoping she grows out of it. Soon.

That's the update on what's going on around here. What's new with you?

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up

Hey, Angel, whatcha doin'?
What's it look like I'm doing, chica? I'm enjoying a sunpuddle, window whiffs and some Birdie TV...
That's kinda boring. I'm more interested in your floofy belly...
I know it took you six months to let me get near you but I'm glad you finally did...
Yeah, well, it appears you're here to stay so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

How was your weekend?

Happy first week of March!

Thursday Treat #ChewyInfluencer

Today is a day filled with treats. First, we've had a couple of days off of taxes because Mommy has been in Portland with friends. Secondly, I get to review some Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredients Diets Chewy Bits Duck Formula Grain Free Dog Treats for the nice folks at Chewy.com. And finally, you get to see my cute face...
Well, that is until I perform the all important smell test where I put my snooter in the bag...
These soft, chewy treats have real duck as the #1 ingredient and two primary sources of carbohydrates so they're good for dogs on a limited ingredient diet. They are 100% free of fillers, grains, potatoes and chicken for dogs with food sensitivities and contain no artificial colors or flavors. Natural Balance L.I.D. Duck Formula Dog Treats are perfect for dogs from puppies to adults. After all that, all I know is that not only do they smell good, they look good too...
Let's go for the final test, the taste test...
The verdict is, they're very tasty so I give them four paws up! Mommy puts them inside some treat-holding toys to keep me busy so I can enjoy them longer. I've asked her to order more from Chewy.com in the future! If you're in need of treats, food, toys, anything pet related, be sure to check out Chewy.com. You won't be disappointed!
Disclaimer: Chewy.com sent me a bag of Natural Balance L.I.D. Duck Formula Dog Treats free in exchange for my honest review. This did not influence my opinion at all because when I don't like something, I won't eat it no matter what. It's my puppy prerogative. 

What's your favorite treat?

Hope you enjoyed seeing me!

Two for Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

It's time for our monthly review for the fabulous folks at Chewy.com. We were asked our opinion of Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Goldie Lox and the 3 Fares Variety Pack Grain Free Canned Cat Food. That name is a mouthful! Let's see how it tastes...
It's hard to concentrate because I feel like I'm being watched...
Maybe if I ignore her she'll go away...
Uh, guess not...
Okay, back to business. Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Grain Free Canned Cat Food is like people food for pets because it's made with the best ingredients that are high in protein and low in carbs. There's no grains, gluten, GMO ingredients, potatoes, MSG or carrageenan. It's real, deboned meat in yummy gravy...
Mommy was concerned about Isabella being able to eat it because she has no teeth but the meat is small and soft enough that she can enjoy it too...
So, our review is mixed. Out of the four varieties, our favorite is Goldie Lox Chicken & Salmon Au Jus, We also like Funk in the Trunk Chicken in Pumpkin Consomme and Chicken Frick 'A Zee Chicken Recipe Au Jus. Neither one of us like Double Dip Chicken & Beef Recipe Au Jus. It's just, uh, icky. Three out of four ain't bad I guess!

Much thanks to Chewy.com for letting us review this food! It's something we probably wouldn't have tried but now will certainly buy in the future. Chewy.com has many choices so if you haven't checked them out yet, be sure to do so! They have incredible customer service and quick delivery that's free for orders over $49!
Disclaimer: Chewy.com sent us a case of Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Goldie Lox and the 3 Fares Variety Pack for free in exchange for our honest review. As you can tell this didn't influence our opinion since we didn't like one of the flavors and we're not gonna lie about it either. 

Have you tried anything new from Chewy.com lately?

We hope you enjoy something tasty today!

Weekend Wrap Up

Winter weekends here are dreary and wet but that doesn't stop me from wanting window whiffs...
I'm still not happy that Lexi is here but I don't let her stop me from coming downstairs anymore. After all, this was my house first! To show her who's boss, I even help myself to her water...
It's funny to watch her try to figure out why my smells are on her bowls! MOL! Anyway, I also helped Mommy work on tax returns so to cap off the winter weekend, I cuddled with the resident cuddling professional...
Today it's back to work since taxes are never ending. It's a tough job being a CPA Cat but somekitty's got to do it.

How was your weekend?

Happy last week of February!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day! Today is our mommy's favorite holiday since she loves love and anything with hearts on it. Since it's Lexi's first Valentines Day, she got Mommy a present. It's a pottery pooch...
She's the only one who got Mommy a present because puppy dog eyes only go so far...
See what I mean...
Anyway, Mommy loves it and Isabella loves the tishoo it came wrapped in...
Hope you have lots to love today too!

Happy Valentines Day!

Friday Night Fun?

Lexi, stop staring at me...
Lexi, stop sniffing me...
Lexi! I said stop it!
Do I look like I'm joking, chica?
Didn't think so...
Somepuppy is persistent but thank Cod she's smart enough to know when to leave us alone. Usually.

Hope you have fun this weekend!

Two for One Review #ChewyInfluencer

Lexi isn't the only one who works around here. We were also asked by the nice folks at Chewy.com to review one of their products - Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Weight Management Ground Turkey and Rice Entree Canned Cat Food. Hey, wait a minute! Weight Management? Clearly this isn't for me!
I'll turn this over to someTortie who, uh, might need this...
Angel, you're floofy and it's not all fur, chica! Anyway, this food is high protein and low calorie to keep me at an, ahem, ideal body weight while protecting my lean muscle. It's made in the USA with real ground turkey with the recommended levels of taurine to protect against heart disease. It also has Omega 6 fatty acids to keep my skin healthy and my Tortie fur beautiful and shiny. I must say it's pretty darn tasty too...
Oh alright, let me have a taste...
Uh, excuse me but the bowl does have my name on it...
As you can tell, we both like Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Weight Management Ground Turkey and Rice Entree Canned Cat Food and we give it four paws up! We also give four paws up for Chewy.com for having such a great selection of foods, treats, scratchers, pretty much anything we need!
Disclaimer: Chewy.com sent us a case of Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Weight Management Ground Turkey and Rice Entree Canned Cat Food in exchange for our honest review. This did not influence our opinion at all because if we don't like something, we would never pretend we did. Cats don't lie about food. Just sayin.

What's your favorite thing to buy from Chewy.com?

Enjoy your day!

Working Wednesday #ChewyInfluencer

When the nice folks at Chewy.com asked me if I'd like to do a review on some treats, I jumped at the chance! I'm only 8 months old so there are a lot of treats that are new to me so it's fun to try out new ones such as Canidae Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Bison and Butternut Squash Crunchy Dog Treats...
I may be a puppy but I take treats seriously since I get them when I do something good so they better be worth it. Let's give these a try...
Uh, I think I need to try a little more...
The verdict? The Canidae Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Bison and Butternut Squash Crunchy Dog Treats are yummy! They're made here in the USA and the bison flavor is tasty. I also like that they're crunchy to help keep my teeth clean. They are a good size for puppy rewards and snacks too...
I do wish there were more than 30 in a bag though but we order from Chewy.com enough that our supplies are replenished often. If you haven't checked out Chewy.com, you should! They deliver food, treats, toys, everything quickly and right to our front door...
Anyway, I liked these treats very much and I'm glad I got to try them out! Thanks, Chewy.com!

We enjoyed our weekend with Daddy home. He gave us both lots of attention and scritches which we love. He also took over puppy duty so we could enjoy some quiet time upstairs with Mommy...
She worked on some CPE for the new tax law so of course we helped. Riveting stuff let me tell ya...
Anyway, we hope your weekend was a good one too!

Happy Monday!

Finally Friday

It's been another long week but we're ending it better than it started. Our computer issues have been fixed and even better news, Daddy comes home today! He's been on the coast for work and we've missed him. Mommy is really glad he'll be home because a certain 8 month old puppy is a handful! She has to be walked...
She chews on her toys while laying on Mommy's feet...
She wants to play with her toys at 4am...
So yes, we're all happy he'll be back home where he should be very soon...
We plan to be first in line for scritches!

How has your week been?

Happy weekend to you!

Wordy Way Back Wednesday

We're having computer issues so can't get new photos loaded so here's a throwback to January 2012 when I was sharing a sunpuddle with our angel sisfur Sadie...
It's been rainy here but the sun returns tomorrow so I'll be sure to enjoy a sunpuddle in her memory.

Hope you have sunpuddles today!
