World Spay Day

Sparkle told us on FB that today is World Spay Day and to post our pictures from when we were spayed.  World Spay Day is an annual campaign of the Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter - a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.

Truffle was spayed on January 30, 2012.  Our vet now uses laser surgery and internal stitches for spaying and he shaved very little from Truffle's tummy.  Mom Paula tried to get a couple of pictures of Truffle's belly, but it was difficult with all of her floof.



We also wanted to share a picture of Sweet Praline after her spay surgery.  You can tell the picture is 16 years old, but we just had to include our sister-before-us in this post.


Brulee is scheduled for her spay surgery on April 23, 2012.

Too Cute - Kittens

Would you believe Mom Paula stayed up past midnight watching this tv show about kittens on The Animal Planet when she has us to look at?

 Hey Mom, Watch me!  I can play with this toy and look cute, too!

 Hmmmmm.  This looks interesting; especially the part where the momma Persian went after that woofie when he was messing with her babies!  Just like the guy on tv said, "don't mess with a Persian."

C'mon mom, look at me and not at that tv kitty!

Happy Birthday Mom!

We're taking it easy today and helping Mom Paula celebrate her birthday!  Her age is interesting this year because it matches the last two numbers of the year she was born.  How's that for a math problem?


Happy Birthday, Mom Paula.  We love you!

Photo Hunt - Loud

Brulee and I like to make a lot of "loud" noises when we're playing in the hallway, especially with our spring.


Mom Paula thought we were "loud" until her refrigerator started making a "loud"  noise this week. Keep your paws crossed it doesn't break down or Mom Paula may emit a "loud" scream.  MOL!

Friday at the Movies

Last week we had a chance to get into the guest room for the first time together.  Mom Paula was changing the sheets from our house guest and we decided we'd play help with the sheets.  We had the best time bouncing on fixing the sheets.  We hope you enjoy your movie today.

We also want to wish Mom Carol (Ginger Jasper's mom) a very Happy Birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Mom Carol!

Thankful Thursday

After being gone for 6 days, Mom Paula is finally home and we're thankful for that!!!  She was at a  business meeting for the first few days, but then went and visited with Mom Peggy and met Laila and Minchie.  Mom Paula said Minchie slept with her last night and Laila actually got within two feet of Mom Paula and rested, but we're glad Mom Paula is back home with us.  We stayed right beside her last night when she got home.




Today is Mom Peggy's birthday!  Happy Birthday Mom Peggy!!!

Mardi Gras 2012 Challenge

The beautiful ladycats (and one mancat) at Jacqueline's Cat House have invited everyone to join in and post their best Mardi Gras photo today.  

Since our names are French/New Orleans in nature, we jumped at the chance to join in the parade.  


Sweet Praline's name was also a French/New Orleans dessert and she loved Mardi Gras, too.  We wanted to share today's post with our sister-before-us.  We're sure she's partying at the Bridge today and leading the parade!


A very special thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for our Mardi Gras graphics.  She did Sweet Praline's graphic a couple of years ago and we still love it!

Doppelgänger

This week, we are exploring the "guest" room a little more.  We don't know why Mom Paula calls it a guest room because it's purrfect for us.  The interesting thing about the our guest room is that there are some doppelgängers (doubles) in here!  This is a new word for us, but we like it because it's big.  In fiction and folklore, a doppelgänger is a paranormal double representing evil or misfortune.  Luckily, for us, the modern day term just means a double.  Can you find us among our doppelgängers?


 Mom Paula has had these "stuffed" kitties for a long time!

Which one is Brulee?

Sweet Praline always liked the stuffed kitties, too.  When Mom Paula was putting together this post, she remembered one of her favorite pictures of Sweet Praline talking to the stuffed kitties.  We thought we'd share it with you again today.

Easy Like Sunday

Mom Paula finally cleaned out the guest room from our extended house guest and opened the door for us to explore.  We had a great time helping her make up the bed (video to come later this week), but we really liked the bed and claimed it as our own.


Have an easy Sunday!

Photo Hunt - Point

Brulee wants to "point" out to Truffle that she found the bathroom sink first!


But Truffle "points" out to Brulee that she's the oldest and biggest, so the sink is hers!


Brulee has one additional "point" for Truffle - just watch out.  I'm catching up with you in size and my mom is bigger than your mom!  


Good "point"!

Friday at the Movies

Last weekend, Brulee discovered the guest bathroom sink and claimed it as her "easy" place to rest.  This week, Truffle discovered she could have fun in the bathroom sink, especially with her spring toy.  Here's a short little video of Truffle playing in the sink and Brulee jumping up to see what was happening.

Deserted!

Mom Paula is leaving us this morning for a business trip and then a couple days of vacation!  This will be the first time she's left us for more than two nights and we're not so sure how we feel about this.  Who will we snuggle with at night? Who will rush to pick us up to cuddle us any time we call for her?  Who will keep our floof nice and mat-free?


 We don't think we like the color "red"

 Truffle checking out the suitcase to see if there is enough room for her.

Do you think if I look sad enough that Mom Paula won't leave us?

Don't worry, our pet sitter, DJ will be checking on us on a daily basis.  Mom Paula has already sent her two emails about us!  Mom Paula said something about visiting Laila and Minchie early next week.  We're jealous!


Mom Paula:  I hate leaving these two for several days.  I've gotten so used to going to sleep and waking up with them.  I'll try to give updates each day after I hear from the pet sitter.

Easy Like Sunday

Brulee found a new place to take it easy yesterday.  She looks quite comfortable, doesn't she?




Me (Truffle), I still like to take it easy on our small table in Mom Paula's home office.

Photo Hunt - Heart

Truffle almost gave Mom Paula a "heart" attack when she jumped on top of the scratching post last week just a few days after her lady gardenectomy.

Friday at the Movies

Many of  you may remember the video of Truffle "playing" in the water fountain.  The video today revisits the water fountain with Truffle and Brulee.  As you will see in the video, Truffle still likes to stick her head under the water fall.  This was the first time Mom Paula caught Brulee playing in the fountain.  We hope you enjoy the video today.




We really need to stay close to Mom Paula this weekend because she leaves on a business trip next weekend.  If everything goes as planned, she'll get to spend some time with Laila and Minchie (and Mom Peggy).

Thankful Thursday

We're thankful for our crunchies!  We wish Mom Paula would keep our china plate filled with stinky goodness, but at least she keeps our pink bowl filled with crunchies.



Pee ess - Just a little update on Truffle.  She's doing fine after her surgery.  Last night was the first night she was ready to "play" with Brulee.  In fact, I had to calm her down a little because it's only been a week since her surgery.  Thank you again for all of your support for Truffle.  Brulee will probably have her surgery sometime in April.

Floofy Tail Tuesday

One of the characteristics of the silver shaded Persians is their floofalicious tail!  Truffle's tail has been extremely floofy for a few months now.  What makes her tail that much more unique is the beautiful silver shading.

Brulee came to live with us at 10 weeks of age and she had the cutest little tail.  Her tail is getting longer and longer and is now filling out.  She loves to curl up her tail like a little piglet when she's eating.

The Puppy Bowl

While the beans were watching the Super Bowl, we watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.  Brulee was very interested in the puppies and climbed on top of the computer table to get a closer look at the action.


Truffle had no interest in the puppies, but when Mom Paula turned on the big TV in the living room for the Kitten Half Time Show, both Truffle and Brulee showed interest.



Even after Truffle finished watching the half-time show, Brulee hung around on the Ess to continue watching.

We're helping Mom Paula pick out a solo to sing at church this morning and then we're going to take it easy.

Photo Hunt - Flat



Today's Photo Hunt theme is "flat."  Here's out take on the theme:


We're not "flat", we're "floofy."
