Tissue Paper Fun

Guess what? The lady received a package the other day from LL Bean! You may wonder why that's blog worthy other than the lady finally getting a new piece of clothing. Well, that new piece of clothing was wrapped in tissue paper. 

I have finally discovered the joys of tissue paper and got 20 seconds lots of enjoyment from playing on it.

Finally Friday!

I'm easing into the weekend. Today the lady goes to her office to work (normally she works from home), which means no lovings until she gets home. She likes to give me scratches throughout the day and I kind of like it. I purr. I'm just not a lap kitty or a hugging kitty or a sleep-with-the-lady-at-night kitty

Happy Friday!

Mancat Not-as-Old-as-You-Think Monday

Simba here. I love sunny afternoons. 

They call me oldie-man, but I can still do this (although I'm not so good at jumping up):

Happy Saturday!

Today is going to be a beautiful day. Yay! The lady is looking forward to relaxing and reading a good book. It's been a long week but there are still chores that need to be done. Luckily, I don't have chores. I plan on enjoying the sun, taking a long bath, eating and playing. We hope you enjoy your weekend!

Annie's Song

Sunshine on my belly makes me happy...

I'm Annie

 I am going to try my paw at blogging. Word on the street is I'm too flighty to put my thoughts down. Well, I'm not sure about that but here are some things about me:
  • I'm orange
  • I have lots of stripes that I keep squeaky clean
  • I love food
  • I'll turn seven this summer
  • I love to play
  • I always look over my shoulder when I'm eating because someone is probably sneaking up on me even though that's never happened since I came to live here 
  • I'm not very affectionate which makes the lady sad
  • Oh, did I mention I love to eat?
More to come...

Goodbye Butterfly

What used to look like this:
Not 24 hours later after purchasing and one play session now looks like this:

 Yet it's Annie's favorite toy. The missing butterfly doesn't phase her one bit. Necko Fly, Cat Catcher and all others get barely a glance when I pull them out. I pull out this, and she's happy as a clam.

Mancat Monday: Simba is a Hottie

Note the heating pad, which is on, while it's in the high 70s today
I love heat. Luckily, Annie's not interested in the heating pad so I get it all to myself. Probably because she's so well insulated (hee hee). 

I hope you have a nice, warm Monday.

Cute Orange Meatloaf

Isn't she cute? We hope you have a wonderful weekend! It's sunny and supposed to get to the high 70s here in north Texas. Annie got to enjoy the sunshine yesterday too.

The Playaholic

Hi. I'm Annie and I'm a Playaholic.
Annie is waiting to play. She wants only to play with me and only with a very few select toys. Cat Catcher is actually the only toy that presently interests her. She snubs previously loved toys such as Da Bird and Neko Fly. She doesn't like to play by herself. Balls, mousies, tunnels or even the Fling-ama String toy do not interest this gal.
Can we play now?
We play every evening for about an hour but it's never enough for this girl. Do any kitties out there have an insaitiable appetite for playing? How do your people play with you and how do they manage to not feel guilty when you do cute meows and look at them earnestly?

Annie in a Drawer

Last month,  Annie hopped into this dresser drawer, which was a first. I snapped the picture with my phone which accounts for the worse-than-usual picture quality.

We've had Annie for about a year and a half now. It's taken about a year for her to stop going under the bed all the time and she's even recently stopped, for the most part, going in her "office" (the storage closet). I'm happy to see how much more comfortable she is with us and her home. At one time I despaired of her ever feeling at ease.

I miss Lucy so.
