Thankful Thirsty

We're doing a playon of the words Thankful Thursday because July is National Pet Hydration Month which is sponsored by PetSafe.  We thought we'd share a few photos of us enjoying our various water fountains we've had and currently enjoy.  We're very thankful Mom Paula tryies to find the fountain that works best for both of us.  Stay tuned during the next few days because we're excited to host our very first give-away for a special water fountain.
Brulee

This is the Naturespa UV Fountain we purchased in Fall 2014.  Truffle loves it because of the water stream, but Brulee prefers to drink water from the bowl (because of her flat face).  This fountain meets both needs.  It's located in our big bedroom and Mom Paula had to get used to it because there is a blue glow from the fountain when she turns off the lights.

Which End is Up?

Brulee is so floofy that sometimes it's difficult to tell which end is her head and which end is her tail?  MOL!

Wellness CocoChia Bakes Treats

We received a new treat from Chewy.com to review this month as part of their Blogger Outreach Program.  We were very excited to try the Wellness TruFood CocoChia Bakes Treats because we've always liked the Wellness brand of foods and treats.
Brulee checks out the CocoChia Bakes from Wellness

We were sent the Wellness TruFood CocoChia Bakes with Chicken, Beets & Coconut Oil Grain-Free Cat Treats flavor.  The TruFood line of products from Wellness is made from whole foods from farm, field, and sea.  They are grain-free and slow baked and include coconut oil and probiotics.  You can find a list of the ingredients here.  

Truffle takes a sniff while Brulee waits patiently for her turn.

Everyone knows that Truffle loves treats, but she didn't like these.  In fact, she took one sniff and walked away from them, which is a first for her.  Mom Paula thought maybe she was having an off day and offered the treats to her again on different days, but she still refused to eat them.

Brulee liked the treats but only ate a couple.

Brulee was a little more interested and ate the treats, but only a couple.  Usually, she'll keep coming back for as many treats as Mom Paula will give her, but she wasn't really "into" these treats.  We don't know what was so different with these treats and Mom Paula was disappointed because the treats appear to be healthy based on the ingredients.  In fact, Mom Paula said she could probably eat the treats because they were gluten-free.  It's very unusual for us to not like treats, but we're sure other kitties may respond in a different manner and these would become their new favorite treat.

The Wellness TruFood CocoChia Bakes also come in a salmon, coconut oil, and spinach flavor. Even though these weren't our favorite treat, we're sure other kitties would love them.  They can be found on chewy.com for $3.64 for a 3-oz. bag.

Caturday Art

For today's Caturday Art creation, we used the colored pencil special effects from Pho.to.com.  We added a museum mat frame from PicMonkey to complete the art project.  In case you're wondering what the big gold thing in front is Brulee is - Brulee was sitting under the dining table behind the table leg.

This art effect really brings out Brulee's beautiful green eyes.

Flashback Friday

We are approaching our 4-year blogoversary in a couple of weeks and Mom Paula is becoming a little nostalgic.  We went back to the first week Truffle came to live with Mom Paula back in September 2011.  Truffle was really curious about what was in this big, cold box.

The funny part is that the only thing you see in the refrigerator in this photo is the alcohol and Mom Paula doesn't drink.  What gives???

Break Time

We think it's time for a break from all of this work.  Do you think Mom Paula will get the hint?


Wait a minute!  We may be kitties, but how can Mom Paula be working when Candy Crush Saga is on the computer???  That's not work!!!

Working Kitties

Mom Paula tries to work at night when she gets home, but we tend to have other ideas.

Summer Fur Horns

If you thought Brulee had some wild fur horns in the winter, just look at her fur horns in 100+ degree weather in SC.

Mom Paula hadn't cleaned Brulee's eyes or brushed her yet, but when she opened the side door to let in some sunlight and Brulee just posed purrfectly so you could see her beautiful green eyes, Mom Paula just grabbed the camera and got this shot.  Even without her grooming, she is such an adorable kitty.

Announcement:  Dont' forget to send your photos/collage for inclusion in the 2016 Cats of the CB Calendar.  Click on the graphic on the sidebar or here.

Father's Day

We're very lucky that we know who our daddycat is.  Even though we're 11 weeks apart in age and have different mommykitties, we do have the same daddycat, Jayden.  Jayden is a handsome silver shaded Persian.  He's retired from breeding now and living a very happy and comfortable life in Mt. Pleasant, SC.  We thought we'd share a Sunday Selfie Collage of the three of us to honor Father's Day.

Mom Paula is so thankful her dad is still alive and lives within five miles from her.  He's had some health issues lately and recently turned 82.  She knows how important it is to enjoy every moment she has with him and is thankful for all the things he's done for her and how he's supported her even if he disagreed.
Mom Paula, Grandpa Paul, Grandma Faye

Happy Father's Day to all of the daddy cats and human daddies out there.  We know there are some of  your human parents who no longer have their fathers here on Earth with them.  We offer our comforting thoughts and purrayers as they remember that special male in their lives today.

Caturday Art

We're back to Pho.to.com for our Caturday Art submission today.  This artistic graphic, which shows off Truffle's beautiful eyes, was created from the "squares abstract art" within the "stylized effects" category.  We're having a lot of fun experimenting with all of the special effects on this website.

You can see more Caturday Art creations at Athena and Marie.

International Box Day

There's nothing a kitty likes better than boxes (except maybe treats), so we're thrilled to participate in International Box Day.  The only problem is that Mom Paula decided to start tearing down boxes last week and we almost lost our chance to get in a box to celebrate today.  Truffle caught the box before it was too far gone.

Brulee even showed that a box is still a box even when it's broken down.

We hope everyone has a wonderful day in their special box(es).  Head over to Wag and Woof Pets to see more pets in boxes.


We also want to wish a Happy 79th birthday to Grandma Faye!  She's the best.

Thankful Thursday

Mom Paula received the results from her biopsy and all of the tissue was benign!!!  We're so thankful there is no cancer.  She is still having some problems and will meet with the doctor to determine next steps on Monday.  Thank you for all of your good thoughts, prayers, and purrs.
Mom Paula and Truffle
