Outsmarting a SmartyKat®

Brulee says no SmartyKat® Hot Pursuit feather is going to outsmart her.  She just lays right on top of it.

Flashback of Baby Truffle and Remembering Sweet Praline

We feel so bad!  Yesterday was Angel Sweet Praline's 21 birthday at the bridge.  Normally, we post a photo graphic wishing her well, but Mom Paula was at the hospital all day long this weekend with Grandpa Paul and she totally forgot it was Praline's birthday.  To honor Praline, we went back to a photo of Truffle during her first month with Mom Paula (September 2011) sitting beside Sweet Praline's urn and memory photo.  Mom Paula truly believes that Praline sent Truffle to her to help heal the hole in her heart.  We think Praline was having a blast at the bridge with all of our angel kitties who've joined her the past few years.  Happy Birthday, Sweet Praline.

Mom Paula:  There are times when I remember Praline that I have sad thoughts and the tears begin falling.  Most of the time, I remember her with a smile.  Praline came into my life when it was falling apart and she helped me survive those 15 1/2 years she was on this earth.  I honestly believe Praline communicates with Truffle (and possibly Brulee) to help her take care of me.  A few  years ago, I talked to an animal communicator and she told me that Praline did communicate with Truffle on a regular basis.  I know all of my human friends understand the connections we have with our fur children and that connection is never broken, even when they are gone.  Happy Birthday at the bridge, my sweet diva!

Sunday Selfie

We decided to use the photo from yesterday for our Sunday Selfie today.  We went back to LunaPic and found this cell phone photo.  The items in the photo from yesterday are Brulee, Truffle, the Petlinks® Purr Heaven Bed, and our litter box in the background.

Caturday Art

We'd forgotten about LunaPic for special effects and couldn't believe all the possibilities when we visited it again.  We used the Kandinsky Art effect for our Caturday Art creation today.  If you look closely, you can see Truffle's head behind Brulee.  We thought this effect was really cool!  Can you identify all of the items in the piece of art below?

Flashback Friday with Baby Truffle

Truffle is beautiful, but she's been a little stinker ever since she came out from her hiding places back in September 2011.  Every time Mom Paula turned around, Truffle was into something.  You've seen our lovely pink Peggy Blankie that was purchased for us from Auntie ML.  As you can see in the photo below, Truffle preferred to pull it off the couch instead of sleeping on it.

Truffle would go full blast for hours, tearing all over the house, climbing on furniture, jumping across the room, and then all of a sudden, she'd crash and sleep.  Mom Paula remembers being worn out that first 6 weeks before Brulee joined us and both Truffle and Brulee could keep each other entertained.
