There will be an important announcement tomorrow — New Years Day!
Two favorite mancats, Earl (top) and Bond (bottom), celebrate Mancat Monday.

Saturday Kittens

Baby Tippy, sampling the nip his Momma spilled!

And Momma Tortie, sleeping off her nip-fest!
(She found the bag of catnip, opened it and spilled it everywhere!)

Friday Footsies & An Award

Earl’s adorable footsies!

I was given this wonderful award by Miles:
KC and Missy’s Mom ML is hero to pregnant kitties and their kittens,
and also someone who is always there to help anyone who needs it.”

Thank you so much, Miles. Wow. This is my first award ever!

Now, I would like to present this award to:
(1) Jody Harmon, the night trapper, works relentlessly to end stray cat colonies wherever she lives. The physical work of being a trapper is unbelievable especially with the extreme weather in Oregon. She really cares about the cats she rescues. Every cat she traps receives medical care, most times badly needed, and is neutered/spayed and put up for adoption. If she has no funds (most of the time), she uses her own limited fixed income. The Cat Blogosphere has held several fundraisers for Jody. Through her we were all able to experience the kind of joy that comes from knowing you’ve made a difference in at least one tiny life.

(2) Ann, Maggy & Zoey for tirelessly creating the most gorgeous graphics for everyone in the Cat Blogosphere this holiday season. Our blogs and websites and even our mail-out cards benefited from their incredible talent. Because of your hard work, you made this season brighter for all of us. Thank you for your generosity.


The Extraordinary Gold Star Award was created by Storm, The Furry Fighter and is for Bloggers who have achieved or done something special. The award celebrates beyond what is ordinary or usual.
1) Post the explanation and rules of the award and link back to the blogger who presented you with the award and repeat the reason why you received it.
2) Pass the Award on to two other
Bloggers who you think deserve it and explain why.

TT13 – Winter Secret Paw

Today we received our WINTER SECRET PAW from
Knightly, Lizzie & Firenze!

(click on pictures to biggify)
1. A package arrives and Bond reads the address.

2. He and the Mites agree — it’s for them!
See? The card clearly says “Mites”.
(Do you see the golden paw in the upper left corner? Someone is watching.)

3. BJ spills the package, and Bond is overjoyed to see packing peanuts!

4. KC comes over to check out the goodies!

5. BJ digs in the package and Bond plays with packing peanuts.

6. Autumn enjoys the card and Bungee Buddy.

7. Bond grabs Bunjee Buddy and Earl watches.

8. KC finds the rabbit fur toy. Yum!

9. Break time as KC realizes the temptations were passed out…
Double Yum!!

10. Back at the pile of goodies, BJ and Earl play bungee again.
Bond and Autumn are playing with the fur mouse.

11. And there are still lots more toys to be discovered.
Baby Tuxie & Tippy came and got the little pink mousie.
Baby Socks & Momma Tortie took the little black & white cow.

12. Missy gets away with the Bungee Buddy…

13. A Mite intercepts and passes it on to KC,
who was sleeping off Temptations.

It was a wonderful Secret Paw.
A bit hectic, but a lot of fun to share.
A big 13-cat thank you to Knightly, Lizzie & Firenze
for making the day after Christmas so very special.

And we would like to thank Diva Kitty & The Fluffies for Secret Paws.

Wild Wednesday

This was the kitchen early Wednesday morning.
Items from the pantry on the floor,
trash basket overturned, things pushed off the counters.
While Mites can be rowdy, they have never done anything like this.
They moved herd-like, darting from one place to another,
and we realized they were tracking something.
BJ was the leader of the hunt, backed up by Earl and Sol.
KC was on the sidelines, watching intently.
After a lot of scuffling, BJ goes in for the final pounce
while backup Earl looks on.
Once pounced, the Mites backed off to let KC approach…
… she touched it with her paw and declared it dead.
Then all the cats followed KC and BJ out of the kitchen.
Leaving me to clean it up!
BTW, there are now kitty water bowls everywhere for them to drink from.
No more water glass business in this house!

Merry Christmas

Missy & KC and all the fosters** wish you and yours
a very Merry Christmas.
