Kitties in need of so much.....

We are sooo incredibly lucky to have all that we need and more, but there are so many kitties and cats out there that have nothing. NOTHING! No thing!! Not homes, not food, not a nice warm bed and not even someone to love them. Often, the one thing that those cats that have nothing have is an illness. That is the worst possible combination of bad and bad.

Well, a while back we heard about Shell. She was such a kitty. Alone and with nothing...nothing but sickness. Shell was adopted by a wonderful woman that wanted to give Shell a chance at life, but sadly, Shell was just too sick. One thing that was good in Shell's life was that she had a few days of learning what love was before she crossed over the rainbow bridge. The wonderful lady that gave Shell love also gave a lot from her pocket to try to help her (and other kitties similar to Shell)...but her pocket was very small so that nice lady asked for the help of others to auction off items that could earn money for lonely, sad, sick and helpless kitties.

Please go to the auction and bid on something. There are so many wonderful things that surely you will find something. And know that whatever you do find, it will always carry with it the fact that because you bought it, you helped give a kitty a chance at a real life.

For more information and to see pictures of items on auction, please go here:

If you supported the auction with donations or winning bids please take badge with you

Thankful Thursday and Gardening

Today I'm thankful for all the nice weather we had last week which allowed me tons of outside time. I am also thankful that I have a warm, dry, cosy house and bed.

The sun is hiding and weather is rainy and chilly. Definitely time to micro-hibernate. Mom will do all the gardening this week!! I'll go out and check her work when the rain has gone.

But just because I'm not gardening right now doesn't mean that you should miss what the Society of Feline Gardeners members are up to....hop on over now to Jonesie's blog and see what's going on in the world of feline gardening.

'Micro-hibernate' mode ON: Good night.

So NOT Fair!!

Mom is totally confused. Yesterday was a holiday here (Easter MONDAY). It should have been Lolo's day to post, but, well, that didn't happen because Mom thought it was Sunday (since when are there 2 Sundays in a weekend?? duh!!). Only after embarking on a serious campaign were we finally able to get through to Mom to convince her that today is MY DAY and NOT Lolo's day. But house law is that if Lolo didn't have HIS day, I have to share mine with him...AGAIN. I understand, but I still think that it is so not fair that I have to share.

We have been working sooo hard collecting sunrays. You might find this funny, but this is a serious and difficult occupation. It only LOOKS easy because we have years of experience on the job. Warning: collecting sunrays is not a job for beginners...only let a seasoned pro collect sunrays or they might be stored improperly subsequently leading to who-knows-what(-if-any) damage. Our advice: watch us in action and take copious notes.

Gardening (?) Thursday

Thursdays are all about:
Nobody gardens better than our buddy Jonesie (Cory Cat Talks) and SOFG!!

We garden almost every day now that Spring is here... least OUR version of gardening.

Today, Mom asked Lautrec and I to BOTH help her in the garden, but when Lolo-boy didn't show up I went off looking for him...

'YOOOO WHOOOO...Lolo...where are you?'

(Lolo thinking: I'm not here...I'm invisible...she can't see me.)

'Lolo...are you up here somewhere?'

'Oh! There you are!!

(Lolo thinking: 'crap...she found me...does that girl have radar or what??')

'C'mon Lolo...Mom wants you to come!!'

I can't come now.
I'm in the middle of some very important interactive solar and grass studies right now.
Tell Mom I'll come later.

We hope that everyfurryone is enjoying some wonderful garden/sun time. For those of you that are still waiting for Spring to come, do know that you are welcome in our house so come on over. You can even hide in the grass with Lautrec!

(Lolo: Hey! I'm not hiding...I am a TIGER in the jungle...duh!)

Tiny's Tuesday - sun puddles in bed

One way I know that Spring is here without even getting out of bed is when the sun comes and sits with me while I am still in bed...this never happens in the Winter. Spring makes me lazy!! I think I'll work on my tan a little longer...yawn....

Lolo Monday/Lolo Lundi

Geez! A fella sure has to put up with a lot around here sometimes...for example, yesterday there wasn't just the DawgWood to put up with, but 2 (TWO!!) extra dawgs here and it would just happen that one was a puppy that was even younger than EllDawg-oh and both the extra doggies were bigger than E-dawg. As if that wasn't enough, there were also 3 mini-beans here, too!! Geesh!! I'm sorry people, but I am neither a dawg fan nor a mini-bean fan so you can imagine how I was trying to survive 3 dawgs and 3 mini-beans in MY house.

All I wanted to do was to plug my ears and try to escape the noise. Unfortunately,I only managed to cover one ear.

Never have I been so happy for Monday to come!

Color coordinated

LAUTREC: Who said boys have to choose blue and girls have to choose pink? I love pink! I also think I look very handsome in pink, on pink and near pink....and in blue and on blue and near blue...and in red and on red...well, you get the picture, I'm just a handsome guy.

TINY: yeah, yeah, only chose pink because I was already on the blue. The blue is softer and warmer so I chose isn't a question of color. Seriously. Besides, they both smell like Mom so that is all that matters!

Frolicking Friday

Hello again!! Do you realise how lucky you are to have me two posts in a row? Eat your hearts out kitty-cats!!

It seems that the on-going topic for everyone is Spring. But as Spring goes, the weather can't decide what it wants to be: warm and sunny or cool and rainy or warm and cloudy or rainy and warm or..oh, whatever! No matter what, Spring IS here and I'm lovin' playing outside, exploring all the new smells, chewing on bones (would you believe that Mom and Dad brought bones back for me from England?! Shhhh! Don't tell the cats or they will make me pay cuz they didn't get anything! haha!), chasing bugs, bees and butterflies, watchin' birds and just goofin' off around in the garden.

Here I'm rompin' around the garden...

And here I am checkin' on the fish in our little pond...

BTW, what do you think of my ears? The one-up, one-down look. I'm not trying to have this look I swear. Someone told Mom that when my teeth are all done changing then my ears should both be down. I hope so, but I do have to admit that with the one ear up I hear so much better out of that ear!!

The Wood's Wednesday

I must be REALLY smart because sometimes my head feels so heavy that I just need to rest it on something.

I especially like to rest my big brain on the pillows on the couch.

Two for One Tuesday!

Normally I would never accept a deal like this, but this time (and only this time) I'll let it slide. I think we each deserve our own day and none of this 'two for one' stuff...but, due to circumstances out of our control, here we are, Tiny and I, presenting ourselves together on the same day.

Did we mention already that we have sunshine? And warm weather? We LOVE this weather!! We love to sit outside; sleep outside; roll in the sun on the wonderful scritchy-scratchy concrete of the terrace;

...rub out cheeks on all sorts of places so that the whole (feline) world knows that we have been there; smell the flowers; eat fresh grass; chase butterflies;

...breath in the good air and (yawn) take lots of naps!!

And we especially love it when Mom comes to sit with us to give us extra cuddles...only why can't she leave the flashy beast somewhere else!!??

Sleepy Saturday

Woof!! It's me, Ellwood!! Yep, see me there? I'm the doggie you see lying there on the lower right corner of this picture. Why am I lying down? Because like Tiny and Lolo, I'm kinda pooped from trying to convince Mom to give me extra needed cuddles. You might not believe me, but making a successful 'cuddle-me-please-face' is hard work! Enough to wear a pup right out!!

I don't have to work half as hard as Tiny and Lolo because while Mom was away I was getting cuddles from someone else. Tiny and Lolo, though, got minimal cuddles during Mom's absense, so they are really working the 'cuddle-me-lots-and-right-now-please look'...can you tell? They are out like lights!!

Late Posting Friday

OK, so you know that Mom is back, but I have to say that because she is back, I don't want to let her go so I keep tagging around her, crying (well, actually SCREAMING) when she goes too far away from me and so forth. And, well, I am proud to say, it is for this reason that we are late posting today...hehehe...

Yesterday, Mom tried (emphasis on 'tried') to work in the garden, but if I had my way I would have chained myself to her leg, but I did the next best thing...

...I flopped myself onto her feet whenever I could.

Not only does this tactic work, it is very high on the cute factor scale and Mom just can't resist that.

I am so smart. I am Siamese. I am Lolo.

BTW: Don't worry, Tiny and Ellwood are fine and'll get to see them tomorrow even though I think every day should be MY day!!
