Happy Mew New Year!
Hi everyone! Cody here as the senior cat, wishing on behalf of all of us, Happy New Year!
We hope it's super wonderful for all of you!
Momma has been a little busy caring for Teenagergirl and resting due to a flare-up from going off her nasty RA medicine. She is helping us visit a little tonight and hopefully continuing her visits throughout the long weekend.
Hugs and Purrs Everyone!

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Hello, Cricket here. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and received all the gifts you wanted, no matter how Naughty you were.
I like to perch by the tree to relax and admire the lights. If you Bigafy this last picture though you can see who decided to pretend to be a pressie and sit under the tree. Pesky little bother Toeshee!
The Teenagergirl is on the mend slowly from her tonsilectomy. She is still quite hurty and taking a medicine for pain. She is eating soft food like mashed potatoes and soup and ice cream. Stuff she likes anyway, so that's good.
Momma is trying to help us blog and visit whenever she gets a free moment. She is looking forward to a quiet night alone in the family room with just us kitties and some lit candles and a cup of tea. She has been fighting the joint hurties, so we must be patient with her.
We hope you all are having a fantastic holiday week and we look forward to checking in on you all soon!
~love and naughtiness`` Cricket~

Waiting for the sun.
It is a long cold winter's night. But today is the Solstice.
Slowly the days will grow longer. The sun will win by springtime.
It is the beginning of Christmas week. We are sleepy kitties and Momma is tired too. We look forward to snuggly days and evenings, treats and naps.
The Daddyman's dad is in the hospital again, but he may be able to go home this week. He is very sick.
We are still so sad about Prinnie. The little stuffed white cat that Billie cuddles with sometimes is named Princess.
Us kitties hope all of you have a very Happy Holiday week. We will try to get around to do more visiting this week. Momma helped us visit a little bit today.
If any of you kitties are having any fun parties for Mew Years, let us know.
Lots of Purrs,
~Twilight's Muse Kitties (Lorianna's kitties)

Sweet Little Lamb Kitty...
I just went online for a bit tonight and found out that Princess has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She went peacefully and is now with her beloved brother Caesar. Her Mommy Rosemary took such wonderful care of Prinnie. Her devotion touched me greatly.
So far this has been a pretty icky December...
I am so sad about so much.
I'll try to get some cute pictures of my kits up soon and I know visiting blogs will help me feel not so alone. Perhaps later this weekend.
My daughter's tonsilectomy, which was canceled due to her flu is happening Tuesday morning.
Good thoughts would be very welcome.
My thoughts are with a cute lambie-pie white curly kitty and her devoted Mommy.
Sunshine for you always now Prinnie. Enjoy it with Caesar and Tookie.

Hi everyone. I'm so sorry we haven't been visiting this week. It's been a rough one. We have been hit with quite a nasty snowstorm here. Frigid temps and blowing snow. The stupid man who owns Sylvester did not let him in! My husband actually put him in our PTU and carried him over there.
We gave them the chance to do the right thing and it didn't last long.
The next bitter cold morning he was out again and on our front porch.
I brought him in and my husband said he could stay in our enclosed back porch for a while. It's still really cold back there though and Sylvester got a bit wild and knocked shelves over and just generally cried the whole time.
My husband had to go wait for his dad's surgery to be completed at the hospital, so it was just me, my daughter, her boyfriend and five high strung cats. When my husband came home he was really sad and upset.
His dad has two kinds of cancer in his bladder. One is evil and spreading. His doctor said he has six months to a year left.
I also didn't have a chance to talk about his beloved Aunt Grace, (his dad's sister) who passed away last Saturday. My husband and I loved her because she was always so sweet and kind to everyone. She was 94 years old.
There's just so much going on, it's hard to put it all down. (sigh...)
Anyway, we can not keep Sylvester. My husband said absolutely not. He went back outside yesterday and seemed to be heading back to his house. He couldn't wait to get out of here, after crying and spraying and knocking things over. He's fixed, so the spraying was a surprise. I kept looking for him all evening and he never came back. Then this morning I saw him on the front porch! I went to get him some food, hoping to coax him back into the house so I could put him on the back porch again. (yes, I'm a glutton for punishment and my husband is at work) When I returned, Sylvester was gone. :(
I am just so sad and frustrated with everything right now. Why do people have to get cancer? Why can't people care for their pets? What is wrong with them!?
Sorry about the rant there... Anyway, I still have to get my cards to the post office. We have not done any Christmas shopping yet and I just want to stay in my pj's and visit blogs. But, I need to get dressed and try to shovel and maybe chase after a cat who doesn't understand that I just want to help him.
How do we get through to his owners? What should I do?
Now, I'm crying again...
Okay, things will get better. Cricket says they must and she is the Queen of everything. So I will go give her and my other kitties some nom noms, take a shower and get on with my day. I will try really hard to start visiting too.
Wish us luck.
Cricket, here; Don't worry, I will look after her. I won't even complain if she lets that Sylvester in again. He just better not eat all my Fancy Feast! I will try not to be very naughty either. (boy, that will be tough!)

Miss Billie's living room tour
Hi everyone! It's Billie here to show you Momma's beloved fireplace mantle and the birdies on our tree. The birdies are not real. I can tell because they have glitter on them and they are not singing.
Us kitties have our own stocking. I hope we get some yummy treats!
Momma hung the pretty Artists Trading Cards that Mommy Karla sent. The one with the four days of Christmas kitties is the one Mommy Karla made.
You can see a picture of our Beloved Tookie in the heart shaped frame. Momma still cries for her. I am the only kitty who knows this, so don't tell anyone. I miss her too, as she was my older sister.
It stays very dimly lit in our living room in the winter even if the daytime. Momma says to pretend it is twilight in the Summer time.
It is going to storm here soon. Momma wants to get us enough food and some human food so we do not run out in case it gets Really Bad. I am so glad that I am a pampered Persian Princess and do not have to worry about going out in an icy blizzard.
We hope you all stay snuggly. Please pray for those animals that do not have homes. Momma hates winter because of all the homeless furbabies that have no homes to turn to. This makes her cry too. I will have to sit by her and purr for her tonight to help her not feel so sad.
Sending Love and Purrs,

Toeshee can't help himself!
What? Can't you see I'm trying to nap?
Why does this tree look real, but taste like plastic?
Because it's not real and it is plastic. You're not supposed to be chewing on it anyway. Every time you do, you get a squirt from the squirt bottle. Which, honestly, I think is hilarious!
Hey! That's not funny!
Hi, Lorianna here. It's been pretty quiet here with random bouts of naughtiness. Oh! I just looked out the window. Snow! Ick! I am not a fan of winter. The sun is out, so maybe it won't last.
We are feeling a bit low this season. My husband's dad has found out he has bladder cancer. He is very tough though and has pulled through both lung and colon cancer a few years ago.
Money is a wee bit tight now. My daughter's tuition bill has arrived and it will take a huge bite out of our bank account. Christmas should be interesting...
But, we must take each day as at it comes and try to enjoy the little things. That's why I'm so grateful for my kitties. They certainly can take one's mind off troubles with their cuteness.
The other night my husband picked up Toeshee and held him like a baby and Toeshee fell asleep in his arms! It was so precious; a twenty pound furry baby! :) My husband said, "I need to go to bed, but I don't want to put him down!"
Today I am keeping Misses Peach in my thoughts as she is not feeling well.
I am also keeping Sweet Praline's Mommy Paula in my thoughts because she has shoulder surgery tomorrow. Lots of Love and Purrs to them!
It's December all ready... My countdown to Spring starts now!
Have a happy rest of the week!

It feels so good to be naughty!
Almost as good as a warm sun beam...
Cricket, did you knock FiFi Feline out of her chair?
Maybe. Can't prove it if you didn't see me do it Momma! Why does she get a boa and a strand of pearls anyway?
Would you wear a feather boa and a strand of pearls Cricket?
For a price. A very big price!
I am not even going to ask what... Sigh~~
Hee Hee! Do something naughty Kitties. It is so fun!

Everything Sweet. Especially the kitties!
Hey everyone! Cody Mac Boldly here to say hi and Happy Thanksgiving!
I am feeling so much better. I have to take this goopy stuff to keep the hairballs away, but I have put on weight and am eating really well.
The other kitties; Billie, Toeshee and Cricket are all good too.
As you can see sometimes Billie and Toeshee will share floof and body heat. Momma loves it when they do that.
Cricket is trying to be her usual glamour puss self. She has such a Diva complex! Again, Momma thinks this is adorable too and calls her Queen! (snort! Whatever!)
Me? I'm Mr. Easy Going. I try to be well mannered and thankful. I'm 15 years old, so every day is pretty good for me as long as I get stinky goodness and baby talk and pets from Momma.
Momma made herself very busy today. She made a pumpkin pie and hopes to make those little cakes tomorrow. If you want the recipes just ask and she will post them. Us kitties just want the turkey!
Her hips are a little bit hurty, so she's going to take some medicine and start doing some Blog Hopping so we can say hi to you all.
If we don't get to you, just know that we totally Love You All!
Have a really great rest of the week and if you celebrate turkey day make sure you kitties and woofies get your fair share of bird!

A little blurry today.
Hi everyone! My picture is pretty blurry Momma. Maybe you better learn how to work your camera a little bit better.
We are fine. Teenagergirl is all over her flu and is back to her old moody self. Momma is much relieved! Us kitties are looking forward to some turkey on Thursday and Momma is going to try to make little chocolate cakes that have melty chocolate in the middle. She found little pans for them and everything.
Right now though she is tired and cranky with canker sores in her mouth. The medicine she pokes herself with gave them to her. She is eating yogurt and drinking cool water for now.
She promised to help us kitties visit our bloggie friends this week and hopes to get to lots and lots at least once this week. She has adorable pictures of us in her camera, but it squawked at her because it's batteries are deaded. She will have to attend to that after she makes dinner.
She is making Christmas cards right now and now is fretting because she thinks they are not cool enough. I'm not sure what that means, but yeesh! Momma sure frets and fusses a lot!
Us kitties are just content to nap and eat Fancy Feast and Party Mix.
Maybe Momma needs a yummy treat to help her relax and nap.
Think like a kitty Momma!
Hugs and Purrs.
Miss Billie~ (who is really not blurry!)

More window views
What do I see out the window Mama?
It's a squirrel Toeshee. They are everywhere! Sometimes they get into our attic and the Daddyman must trap them in the humane trap and take them to the park so they can live in the big trees and not in our house.
Are they delicious Momma?
Um, eew! I do not think so, but then again I'm not a kitty. They can fight back pretty well, so I wouldn't tangle with one. They are cute though. And remember, I don't eat mammals.
But, kitties do, right Momma?
Yes Toeshee kitties do.
Then I will dream about catching a squirrel and it will be delicious!
Have a great daydreamy day efurryone!

Sylvestero and Crickiette
Sylvester is still coming by every day. His beans will not let him in, it seems and Momma feeds him and gives him scritchers and baby talk. She thinks that perhaps he has a crush on me because he makes a point of looking in the window when I am looking out. Notice that I do not look amused!
(Notice that Momma really needs to clean the window too!)
So far no one else has caught the flu and the Teenagergirl is getting better. Momma has had a nasty RA flare up and isn't sleeping really well, but for her this is becoming almost normal.
It has been rather mild and sunny here lately and it's nice to have that golden glow during the short daylight hours. Silly Momma has been getting into her pj's at around 7:00 pm almost every evening. Way to live it up Momma!
Well, not much else is new to report. We may put up our tree before Thanksgiving, just to cheer up the living room a bit. This time of year every little faerie light one can plug in helps chase away the dreariness.
We will get around to visiting all our blogging friends too, as that chases the blues too. We see Whickey visited us and that made Momma happy as she has been a bit worried about him and his siblings. Now, there's a handsome mancat!^..^
We hope you all have a great weekend!
Remember kitties; Be just a little bit naughty!

Hi efurryone! Well, the teenagergirl is slowly getting better. Her doctor thinks it was either H1N1 or just a really strong strain of the regular flu.
She has had it affect her respiratory system and her G.I. tract. (barfing)
Her highest fever was 102.2, but thankfully didn't stay there really long.
She has been just miserable! Momma has been so worried. But, finally the tummy ache is gone and she can eat easy to swallow food. There haven't been anymore fevers either.
Now we wait to see if the Daddyman or Momma get it. Momma has even heard about a kitty getting H1N1! She hopes that us kitties don't get it! she would rather have it four times over than see one of us get sick. Cody and Billie are too old to have something like that!
We sure hope none of you get this big sick! It's the worst flu Momma has seen in a long time.
Momma will try to get back to visiting as soon as she can. Thank you all so much for all of your well wishes!
Health and Happiness and Hugs and Purrs,

The flu is here.
Hi everyone, Cricket here. The teenagergirl has the flu. Momma is afraid it is the Really Bad One. She is very busy taking care of her and may not be able to get around to visiting all of our blogging friends.
We hope and purr that none of you get it!

Momma and the Daddyman went for a walk
It was kinda nice weather for the first day of November, so Momma and Daddyman let us kitties nap while they went for a walk around the neighborhood. Momma decided to take her camera, which usually she forgets.
She took pictures of gargoyles on the big high school nearby. The building is very old. I think they are a little bit scary! That school would be a good Hogwarts, wouldn't it?
On their way back they usually walk by this wooded area behind some big Victorian homes. Last year Momma saw a white cat in there and she still looks for her. But, this time they saw another kitty!
Momma said this kitty was as big as me! He posed for a couple of pictures before giving them the "tail" and walking away.
Now, it's cold again. Next week the Teenager girl is getting her tonsils out. I'm not sure what those are. Do kitties have tonsils? The Teenager girl gets sore throats every Autumn and they come and go all winter long. They are very big and she is tired of them.
She will get lots of ice cream. I wonder if I act really cute, if she will share.
How is your week going? Us kitties are napping and eating and sometimes Cricket and I will fight and run around like crazy, wild things. Billie and Cody just ignore us, but they are old.
Rumbly Purrs everyone!

Please Don't go!
I'll eat you up, I love you so.
~Here in the world there is nothing more than your absence.~
Amy's beautiful kitty Floyd had to go to the Rainbow Bridge. He was loved and still is loved very much by his Mommy Amy.
Whenever I see the commercial for Where the Wild Things Are movie I just can't seem to not cry. When the girl monster tells Max that She'll eat him up she loves him so. She says it in just this broken sad way. When you know you have to say goodbye to someone you love and it hurts so very much.
My thoughts are with Amy and everyone who has lost someone that They Love So.
Hugs to Everyone.

Hello, the perfect Halloween black Cat, Cricket here!
Did I scare you? MOL!
Momma is fa-reaking out right now! Her and the Daddyman are refinancing their mortgage and an appraiser is coming over Monday. She has to come in the house. Pretty scary huh? See, Momma gets no help at all with house work and it takes her forever just to get the downstairs vacuumed and dusted because she has been so hurty.
The teenagergirls room should be declared a disaster zone! There is a spare bedroom that the Daddyman started to renovate, but never finished. It looks awful!
When the teenagergirl re-painted her room she moved out a lot of stuff into the front upstairs sitting room. It is a cluttered mess now! Momma can't even get to her window seat without crawling over stuff.
Needless to say she is very discouraged. She is going to do her best to get some things under control.
I say, why worry? After it's all done, the house payment is lower, which means more Nom Noms and toys for us kitties! And personally as a cat, I have no interest in how cluttered the house is. It's a big playground for me! I will help her by snoopervising of course.
Cleaning a house until it's spotless? For Momma, that's scary!
Oh, yes, I must add that we are very excited to attend the wedding tomorrow! I must pick out the purrfect outfit. Would orange silk be too much?
Be naughty kitties!
