And Another “Gotcha Day” to Cheer!

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Today marks “two years” for Christopher, too. As December 26, 2014, saw me again in the car, this time driving to the Rescue Shelter to get Christopher.

And what a trip that turned out to be. I knew the general area where I was to go, or so I thought. (I had used Google to figure out my own map! Big mistake.)

Thankfully, the foster home cat mom was patient with me each time I called her to get me unlost! Making matters worse (in my mind) was the fact that she had told me during one of our calls she was supposed to be at a family dinner at the time she was waiting for me. (I had left home early enough but then “lost my way”.) (more…)

Meowy Catsmas Gifts

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

2015-12-25-28-christopher-toyIn case you missed this week’s issue of Mews Nooz, we’re sharing Christopher’s story about how much he liked the gifts from Morris the cat!

It all came about because Morris the Cat and Friskies launched a new website, Live Well & Prospurr, and a 9Lives promotion in November to help cats and humans. Morris was also “pawing it forward” by donating meals to cats at the ASPCA. We/the Kids were asked to participate. So we said “yes!”

As a result, Morris provided us with a blog post that we could post at our blog, Kittens n Things, and in an earlier Mews Nooz edition.

Further, in return, Morris and Friskies gave to us free stuff for our “Morris mention”. A huge box arrived for The Boys and Hope about mid-December; we saved it to open Christmas day. You should have seen the “kids”.

The box contained a 12-can case assortment of 5.5-oz 9Lives Cat food – pate! A box of 6 small kitty toys including three mice; in addition, a toy wand with a feather, and a yarn ball. I removed three mice toys so they could immediately play with them, and “someone kitty” removed the ball when I wasn’t looking!

We also received a pet groomer brush; it’s in the shape of a horseshoe. It fastens onto an oval carpet stand. You put catnip in a hole in the bottom of the stand to attract the kitties. When they walk through the brush arch, they are able to scratch their backs and it removes loose cat hair.

Christopher ^^^ immediately grabbed on to one of the mice (they have feather tails and are catnip-stuffed, too). As he played with it on the floor he got a crazy catnip stupor look on his face, as he stared off into space.

What a great Christmas! I had gotten them some toy mice, too; after seeing what was in the box, though, I decided to save those for later.

And then, of course, they had two new big (shipping) boxes they could play in.

Yours in lovin’ opening gifts,

, “The Boys”, and Hope

Photo of Christopher taken Christmas day; he’s a bit of a reddish gold color and somewhat blends into the carpet. It’s difficult to tell where the mouse is in his arms, but it’s there!

P.S. The photo is of some of the goodies given to us by Morris the Cat and 9Lives because last month we shared Morris’s blog post about his new “9 Lives Live Well & Prospurr” promotion.

Christopher Joins 1st Gotcha Day Anniversary Pool

Saturday, December 26th, 2015

Since Phillip got his own special “shout out” in last week’s issue of our ezine, Mews Nooz, and here at Kittens n Things because Sunday, the 20th, was the anniversary of his 1st Gotcha Day, I can’t not mention that Christopher’s 1st Gotcha Day anniversary is today, the 26th”!

Christopher’s actual “gotcha” also involved a trip out-of-town; it was supposed to take about an hour-and-a-half (90 or so miles) but by the time I got there, it ended up it was close to 2.5 hours. I got lost and if it weren’t for the graciousness and directions of Denise, the foster lady pawrent, who had him, not to mention a fully charged cell phone, I might still be trying to find her country house.

I’m thrilled to say we made it through the year with the two of them (Phillip and Christopher) together. Although not entirely without fusses.

In my walk down memory lane, I was reading back through some comments I had written in the Days of Our Meows section of Mews Nooz last year when I first got Christopher. I was reminded I had changed his name at least three times before I settled upon Christopher. At that time I had also remarked, “Note: Our furmily is now complete. We have NO intentions of expanding our paw count!”

So I wonder how in the world I ended up with two more kitties on June 10th the following/the first part of this (2015) year!

Amy at the Shelter sent the above photo of Christopher to me last year, after I had seen his original photo on the Internet and had expressed interest in him. (I had asked if they had any other photos.) When she sent it, Amy remarked that he “had his paws crossed because he hoped I would take him and be his mom”!

We all know how that turned out!

Yours in celebrating Christopher,

and “The Boys” and Hope

Hug Your Kitty Day

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Today’s one of the bestest days ever; it’s “Hug Your Kitty Day”.

Although if you’re like me, you don’t need a special day to give out the hugs.

GE DIGITAL CAMERANevertheless, it’s nice to have the special day.

And, Phillip < << and ^^^ Christopher are certainly basking in the love and giving out paw bumps and high fives! So let's hear it for Hug Your Kitty Day!

Yours in hugging on your kitties,

and “The Boys”

5 Months of Gotcha!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

My how time flies!

Today marks five months since I took a two-hour road trip that turned out to be three hours because I got lost!

And came home with Christopher!

He’s been a joy! And he’s back to sleeping on my lap like he did when I first became his “cat” mom.

That had stopped for a time, after 12 of his teeth had to be removed (because of that hard street life he endured before we met up).

Christopher does still have a bit of trouble sleeping in the bed all night, though; sometimes because of Phillip and other times I think it’s because he’s still doing some heavy dreaming when he sleeps; it shakes him around enough that he ends up falling out of bed!

Yours to another five months and many more with Christopher and Phillip,

and “The Boys”

P.S. Phillip has also now been with me for five months (May 20).
