Happy New Year!

We wish you a safe, peaceful, healthy, treat-filled, happy, blessed New Year.

This evening, we will be cozy at home. The lady will make a lasagna for them and I'll have my usual Fancy Feast along with some treats hopefully. 

We treasure our blogging friends. We had a lot of sadness this year, but we have so much to be thankful for and this was a blessed year.

Thanks for being with us in 2013. We hope 2014 will be a good one for us all!

Annie (and the lady)

EZ Sunday

Hi! The lady and I are hanging out in the easy chair. She's got a cold and I'm keeping her company. She only had her phone so that's the reason for the terrible picture quality.  

She shared her vanilla yogurt with me. She's a swell lady.

Boxing Day and Thankful Thursday

Happy Boxing Day

Our sweet Grammy and Pappy sent us a package from California with all kinds of goodies. I just knew there would be something in there for me too.

We wanted to share just the cat related items since, this being a cat blog, those are the most interesting (although the lady insists the chocolate is pretty interesting too).
Here's a close-up:
Isn't the pillow cute?
We are so blessed to have family that sent us such thoughtful gifts at Christmastime.

Next Thursday, I will share the gift my peeps got me. I'm so excited about it!

Here I am with the silvervine wrapper that our dear friends from Furries of Whisppy sent us. The lady had to use the silvervine to get me in the box in the first picture above. I love silvervine!

Merry Christmas!

The lady and I want to wish you, all our friends, a very merry Christmas. We truly enjoy your friendship. Each and every one of you is important to us.

Have a blessed day (and hope you get lots of ham)!

Annie and Vicki

Easy Sunday

It's warmed up quite a bit this weekend to the 60s, so the peeps were out yesterday. Today, it's supposed to rain all day. I love sitting in front of the window watching the world go by. 

We are going to have a quiet Christmas (the best kind in my opinion). I heard there's going to be a ham. You can bet I will be monitoring that closely.

I really hope you all enjoy an Easy Sunday today!

Chewy.com Review - Natural Balance Cat Food and Treats

This cute gift box was delivered the other day from chewy.com. It contains three Natural Balance items for Annie to try and review and a 50 cent off coupon.

First, Annie tried the turkey and giblets canned food for breakfast. I held small hope that she would like it since it’s not fish flavored. I was so surprised that she loved it! I am counting her calories because she really needs to lose some weight. The 3 oz can has 100 calories, which is approximately 20 more calories than her usual Fancy Feast. Meat and meat broth make up the first four ingredients. Brown rice is the grain.

The next item she tried is the Platefulls Turkey Chicken & Duck Formula in Gravy. She had the opportunity a few months ago to review this as well. She loved it then and she loves it now. She’s been known to love something the first time and then after I excitedly buy a bunch, decides to snub thereafter. This was a great chance to find out that she really does love this food. This food is grain free.

Lastly, she got the treats, Perfect Bites Salmon Formula. They are one calorie each and salmon is the first ingredient. It’s a rare treat that Annie snubs. She loves these treats but I’m careful to give her just a few. Her love of treats (and other food) is a big reason she’s now on a diet.
"Everything was so yummy. I'm now ready for a nice nap with a full belly. Thanks, Chewy, for sending me this food to try for my honest review."

Easy Like a Sunday Morning

Yesterday, we had snow and then freezing rain last night. The lady washed the flannel sheets and then threw them on the bed to make later. I burrowed under the sheets for hours. This is me:

This was Tuesday:

I'm dreaming of bygone sunny California and Texas days. Frozen purrs, friends.

Easy Sunday

I've been tucking in earlier than usual lately. I can't help it. The bed is so comfy, the blankies so soft and warm. Twice just recently I've ventured higher on the bed near the lady to curl up and to make her very happy. Of course, once the lights go out, I head back down to the lowest corner possible.

Last night's coziness

Since today is Sunday, it means the peeps will be at church, then lunch and then doing the shopping for the week. That means peace and quiet for me until they come home and start on their noisy chores. They're good to me so I put up with them (truth be told, I love when they come home).

What are you guys up to today?

Slightly Wordy and Catnippy Wednesday

The lady marinated the afro-ball in catnip for me. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

Good times!

Funny Face on an Easy Sunday

I love sitting in this chair and looking out at the trees. The other day the Big Guy took this funny picture of me, but what's worse is the lady is in the background with her blinding pink sweatshirt. Ugh.

Here's my Christmas alter image:

Happy Easy Sunday!

p.s. We are deeply saddened to hear about poor Gracie at Brian's Home. She is very sick. Please pray for her and her family.

Happy Thanksgiving

There is so much to be thankful for: freedom, faith, home and family are just a few. I love being safe and warm with my peeps, my blogging pals...and treats! The peeps will be celebrating God's blessings and eating lots of food.

"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."

Happy Thanksgiving from Annie and Vicki

Tuesday Coziness

I was burrowed in the blue blanket all day yesterday. Brr, it's been cold! It's almost Thanksgiving here in the U. S. The peeps have a big ole turkey they're thawing, but as Wally at Island Cats reminded me, the whipped cream is the best part of the whole Thanksgiving feast.

Stay warm and cozy, friends!

Missing You and Easy Sunday

I cannot believe how long we've been gone and it's all the lady's fault. She says her work has been keeping her too busy these last few weeks. Now it's been so long that I can't remember all the things I've done since I last posted. In no certain order:
  • I caught a millipede
  • Slept in the pillow case and laughed to myself when the lady couldn't find me and was calling and calling
  • Scooted my bum across the floor to get a dry, pesky you-know-what off my bum
  • Watched the birds and trees for a few hours every morning, sometimes all day
  • Snubbed several different cans of food
  • Gained close to a pound in spite of the above and the lady is very unhappy about this one
  • Woke the lady up very early every single morning without fail
Now I'm off to see what I've missed with all of you. Happy Easy Sunday!

Easy Sunday

The temperature is going to drop today in the 40's. I plan on spending my Easy Sunday right here and on the electric blanket.

I wish you all a happy and easy Sunday!
Hi Big Guy!

I hope you all get lots of treats and no tricks!

Here is a more macabre picture:

Window Wednesday

There's a window ledge in the bedroom so the lady put this blanket down for my comfort. I alternately snooze and watch the outside world. It's supposed to rain later today so I'll enjoy the sunshine while I can.

Below is my "Pawgress Report" from the PetSmart Hotel I recently stayed in. Notice they deprived me of snacks. I sure hope I get lots of treats tomorrow. It hasn't gone unnoticed that the lady, more than once this week, has dipped into the Halloween candy we bought for the trick or treaters.

Planes, Motels and Automobiles

We're home! I am so happy to be back with my peeps! We are now on the East Coast. The big guy and lady lived here before, but I never have. Coming from California and Texas, I'm not used to this cold weather. The lady introduced me to the joys of the electric blanket. The warmth is bliss!

We've missed you all and are looking forward to catching up. I've been on quite an adventure, and I've decided I do NOT like adventures. I like being home with my family.
Happy paw

Home sweet home and pink toes

Happy Trails


We are getting ready to move (again) across country. We'll be in transition between here and there for a few weeks but not leaving until the weekend. (We're not leaving the country, but I found these pictures of silly Annie with a passport taken in July and thought I'd use them for this post.)

We'll miss visiting with you guys but will be back soon!

Have new collar and tag, will travel

Catnip Friday!

The lady and I first want to apologize for not being around much this week. It's been busy for her and we're going through yet another big transition. More to come on that in my next post. For now, I want to focus on the nip, The Natural Pet Company Catnip that is.

Sweet nip

It comes in a big bag and can be sprinkled on the floor, in your fur or even on old toys to liven them up again.

Warning! It may make your bum look big.
When you're all done playing and having the crazies, you'll be ready for a nice nap.

I want to thank the Natural Pet Company for sending this to me to review. I highly recommend this catnip! I'm so happy the bag is so big!
