What we've been doing . . .

Stygia: Our mom has been neglecting our blog, but she has not been neglecting us! In my case, this may be a little unfortunate, because yesterday she took me to the VET! That's why I am hiding in this shoe. Please don't worry about me, it was my first vet visit since I've made my new home, and it was just for check up and basic vaccines. I am healthy! I weigh 10.9 pounds, so I have not gained any more weight since Ms. C put us on a feeding schedule.

Here I am demonstrating my "Sphynx" method of play. What I am doing is sitting with my paws on my favorite toy, pretending not to notice that it is there. Pretty soon, though, I will let myself get very excited about it, and act surprised to find it there! This is a really fun game. Another way of playing this game is to sit right down with the toy underneath my back legs. When it's time to get surprised and excited, then you can start bunnykicking right away! Try this!

I also like to request playtime with Abby. It made me pretty sad when I came home from the vet last evening, and she hissed at me right away. She told me that I smelled funny, and she ran away. She told me she was sure I worked for that vet now, and that she knew I was going to "fix" her again. I played it cool as I could, and this morning it paid off. I was relaxing in the sun, and she came by and gave me a really thorough between-the-ears bath!

Abby: While Ms. C was taking a break and being lazy, guess what? I did a lot of that too! I have my own personal chair right next to hers (which I am allowed to scratch as much as I like!), and I sleep in it too. If you look carefully, you can see that I am licking my nose:

Ms. C placed a plush snake on the lamp next to her desk. Of course, I had to check that out, too. Wouldn't you?

Ms. C says she refuses to decorate anything for Christmas yet because not only is it not even Thanksgiving yet, but her birthday (which is on the last day of the month) must pass before the decorating can begin. We are wondering if Christmas means she is going to put cat toys up all over the house? Is it true?!

Mum agrees that each holliday in turn. We have to get through Thanksgiving before the Christmouse stuff come out.

Abby, the picture of you lying on your back licking your nose is really funny! Stygia, shoes are a great place to hide lousies. Were you looking for one in that shoe?

Stygie, we are glad that you are doing so well. We are sorry that Abby didn't recognize you when you came home from the V-E-T.

Abby, that picture of you on your back in your chair is adorable.

Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

Hi Stygia, we're glad your vet visit wasn't for anything serious. Wally always hisses at me when I come home from the vet. As for those can call them cat toys, I guess! ;-)

Yes it's true, cat toys all over the house and you are expected to play with them all, especially if they are attached to a tree. Humans will be very happy to see you do this!

Lovely photos of your lives there, real nice
