Truffle Tuesday


Usually Tuesday is the day to post about Truffle being in trouble!  However, today, we're posting Truffle's tummy, tail and toesies as she enjoys playing with her Yeowww Nanner!  Have a great Tuesday.

Busy Week

Oh Rats!  It's Monday again!  Mom Paula informed us that she is on the road 3 days this week!  We'll be glad when she stops traveling so much!  (Mom Paula:  So will I!)
You're going where today?

We're so excited to participate in and win an Olympic Gold Medal in our first competition,  Hiding Cat over at Housecat Confidential today.
We may have a lot of floof that makes it appear that we are large kitties, but we're both under 7 pounds and can squeeze under the dresser with ease.

Angel Sweet Praline is with us in spirit today because she had such wonderful hiding places and loved to hide under the same dresser.  Angel Sweet Praline demonstrated this hiding place on March 18, 2008. 

Brulee is competing in Competitive Napping over at Huffle Mawson's place today.  We're keeping our paws crossed for another Gold!

Photo Hunt: Jokester

Brulee is the little "jokester" around our house.  She is always doing something to make us laugh.  In case you're wondering what that beige thing is that she's holding on to while playing with her wand toy, it's a pair of pantyhose!  Brulee loves all of Mom Paula's leg attire and this pair of pantyhose was no exception.  Brulee is just a little clown.

Brulee's tendency to be a little jokester is why her first birthday party on August 27 will be a circus.

Friday at the Movies: Truffle in the Trashcan

Once again we present Truffle in the trashcan for a Friday movie!  The only way Mom Paula can keep her out of the trashcan is to put a big book across it.  Truffle is such a mess!




Pee ess - Brulee is 11 months old today!  Stay tuned for information about her 1st birthday party.
Thank you Ann for our graphic.

Pee pee ess - Truffle is a finalist in the Balance Beam contest over at Cory's Cat Blog.  Please go over and vote for her.  We think she has an awesome entry by balancing on top of a scratching post.  We've entered a few of the contests in the Pet Blogging Olympics and will post all of our entries tomorrow.


Pee ess ess ess - We're participating in the Parade of Athletes over at Posie's blog today.  Come join all of the athletes.  We are so excited to be participating in the Pet Blogging Olympics.  Truffle is just prancing on two legs with excitement.

Pee ess ess ess ess (there are just too many event occurring today).  We are also participating in the Opening Extravaganza with "sports bloopers" over at Roo's Blog today.  In this even, Truffle fell off of the balance beam while Brulee watched on.

Traitor Thursday

Mom Paula is a traitor!  Mom Paula is traveling a lot for her job lately, but managed to work in a trip to visit Mom Terri a couple of weeks ago.  Guess what Mom Paula found when she arrived at Terri's house?  8 kittens!  Now, this get really complicated, so play close attention.  Three of the kittens are full siblings to Truffle because they  have the same mom kitty and dad kitty.  Five of the kittens are half siblings to Truffle because they have the same dad kitty.  All 8 kittens are half siblings to Brulee because they have the same dad kitty.  


Mom Paula took these pictures with her cell phone while playing with the kittens, so they may be a little blurry, but at least you can get your silver kitty fix today.  All of the cats in Mom Terri's house are members of her family and are treated better than a lot of humans!  She's our kind of human mom.
 Mom Paula holding Truffle's sister.  Looks just like Truffle and has a very similar personality.

All 8 kittens eating their supper!

We thought we'd also share some "casual" photos of Jayden (dad kitty), Mikayla (Brulee's mom kitty), and Chloe (Truffle's mom).  Just for clarification - when you see Jayden behind a gate, it's to protect the kittens.  He does get to roam the house when the babies aren't out or when one of the mom kitties isn't in heat.  In fact, his little "cage area" is filled with cat trees, toys, litter box, etc.   Also,Chloe and Mikayla have their summer cuts, so you don't see their luxurious floof in these photos.

How can we stay mad at Mom Paula with all of these beautiful kitties, who are our family?  Easy!  We're cat and Mom Paula belongs to us and should spend all of her time with us.

Tummy Tuesday

Mom Paula worked from home yesterday because of a major report that is due this week.  She would take a short break for a few minutes to check on us, but we were usually close by.  Mom Paula always loved it when Sweet Praline would be so relaxed that she would lay flat on her back and expose her floofy belly for Mom Paula to rub.  Brulee has already exposed her belly, but Truffle has resisted.  That is, until yesterday!  Mom Paula looked in the living room from her spot at the kitchen table with the laptop and saw both of us exposing our floofy bellies.  Mom Paula was afraid we'd move when she grabbed the camera, but we stayed right where we were for the FIRST official Tummy Tuesday for both of us.  We think we made Mom Paula happy!

Reminder:  There will be a circus for Brulee's 1st birthday on August 27.  Stay tuned for details in a few days!

No More Paper Tower

All of you kitties and human moms (and dads) out there can breathe a sigh of relief.  The paper tower is gone!
The tower prior to the weekend with Truffle tempting fate!

Mom Paula read all of your comments on Friday's post and when she re-watched the video, she realized that the tower did pose a danger to us kitties.  Mom Paula spent all day Saturday sorting through all of these papers (her back is complaining about it now).  Would you believe there were papers from 2004 in that pile?  Shame on Mom Paula.

Here is a look at our beautiful chair without the tower.  We've never seen this before!
 It didn't take long for Brulee to claim the chair as her own!

Truffle:  Mom!  What happened to my tower?

Photo Hunt: Song

Today's Photo Hunt theme is "song".  This is an easy one for us because Mom Paula is a musician and she has music going all the time.  Truffle likes to walk across the piano keyboard and Brulee loves to sit at the piano bench.  
Sing a little song into the microphone, Truffle, while I serenade you on the piano.

Friday at the Movies: Truffle and the Paper Tower

We've shared a picture of Truffle on top of the paper tower before.  This is one of the last piles of "junk" that Mom Paula needs to go through from her days as a college professor/math teacher.  If Truffle keeps this up, Mom Paula will need to go through them sooner rather than later!  MOL!


Here is a short little video of Truffle's antics on top of the paper tower!  So far, Brulee hasn't found this tower yet.



We want to pause for a moment to remember our furriend, Annie from Krasota Castle.  She lost her battle with cancer yesterday and crossed the Bridge.  Our thoughts and purrs are with her mom Carol and dad William.  Mom Paula met Carol and William last summer at a cat show in Columbia right before Truffle came to live here.

Trapped!

We haven't seen this strange piece of furniture is quite a while!  Mom Paula pulled it out last night and like fools, we decided to check it out.


We've read about this thing on the CB and it's called a PTU.  We've never quite figured out what that means, so the ever curious Truffle decided to investigate first.  
 Little sister, let me go first to see if this thing is safe.

 My turn! My turn!

Whose bright idea was it to close the door?

Mom Paula:  Don't worry!  Truffle and Brulee are fine!  I need to get a refill on their Revolution treatment and I have no idea how much they weigh.  I've tried the silly idea of stepping on the scale both with and without them in my arms and that just doesn't work.  Their vet told me today that he would weigh each of them at no charge if I wanted to bring them in.  I only have one carrier, so I wanted to see if both of them fit inside.  As you can see, it worked!  At least for a short period.  I hope they will both travel together peacefully in the car to the vet.  I need to get them in as soon as I'm off the road from traveling for my job.

Just wait!  Mom Paula has to go to sleep sometime!

Truffle Tuesday

Yesterday, Brulee was able to share a picture of her cute little face with everyone to announce her upcoming birthday party celebration.  Today is my day - Truffle Tuesday.  Brulee and my faces look totally different, but Mom Paula thinks I have the most beautiful eyes.  They are getting more and more green everyday.  Mom Paula may call Brulee, "cutie", but she calls me "beautiful" (along with a few other choice name that I'd prefer not to mention.  LOL).
Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!  (Some of your moms are old enough to remember that commercial).

Plans for Brulee

Brulee's birthday is fast approaching (August 27) and we wanted to give you a "heads up" about her 1st birthday party celebration to give you plenty of time to prepare.  Mom Paula calls Brulee "cutie" and her little clown, even though she has the luxurious Persian floof.  For Brulee's 1st birthday, we're going to have a Circus!!!  We're working on all of the details and will send them to ML and KC within the week and will also post on our blog.  You can participate as a clown, a circus act, or as a audience member.  So, start thinking about what you want to do for Brulee's 1st birthday party.  
I'm not a clown, I'm a star!

Pee ess - Brulee's official registered name is Crystalpurrs Creme Brulee.  Doesn't she look delicious?

Papoose Kitty


Mom Paula is going to get it just as soon as I am out of this towel!  I can't help it that my floofy pantaloons tend to get "stuff" stuck to them.  That doesn't mean I need to be put in the sink and given a bath!  Just wait until I get out of this papoose!

Friday at the Movies: Brulee and the Water Fountain

Brulee is taking lessons from her big sister, Truffle.  Many of you may remember the video of Truffle back in  September 2011 sticking her head under the water fall.  She did it forever before she gave up.  Brulee is now sticking her head under the water fall.  However, as soon as Mom Paula gets up to grab the video camera, Brulee is gone!  Mom Paula was able to get this quick little video of Brulee playing in the water.



Notice Truffle is doing her favorite thing:  eating!

Our First Blogoversary



We are so happy!  Today is our first blogoversary!  Mom Paula started our very first post on July 12, 2011 to announce that she was bringing two new furchildren home.  Mom Paula had helped Sweet Praline post for 3 years but stopped posting on her 3rd year anniversary in June 2011 after Sweet Praline left for the Bridge in April 2011.  When Mom Paula decided she was going to bring two new furchildren home, she decided that a fresh start was needed and Sweet Purrfections was born.  The pictures that were posted were of Momkitties Chloe and Zoey with their babies.


Our very first comment came from Chey from the Cat Post Intelligencer!  


We thought we'd celebrate today by sharing all of our headers that were used on the blog the first year!  The very talented Ann of Zoolatry designed all of our pictures and stayed with our "pink" theme throughout.    Thank you so very much, Miss Ann.  We couldn't do it without you!  We love you!


Since we didn't know which kitten(s) were coming to live with Mom Paula, we had permission from Mom Terri from Crystalpurrs to use some of the kitties on her page.  Here is our very first header.


A few days after our first post, Mom Paula went to Mt. Pleasant to let the kittens choose her.  At that time, both of Chloe's kittens:  Truffle and Beignet, chose Mom Paula. Ann graciously redesigned our header to include Angel Sweet Praline, Truffle and Beignet.


Unfortunately, one week before little Beignet was scheduled to come live with Mom Paula, he went to the Bridge from a VAS (vaccine associated sarcoma).  Miss Ann once again designed a new header for us to include both Angel Sweet Praline and Angel Beignet.


Mom Paula decided about 5 weeks after losing Beignet to get a sister for Truffle.  Brulee joined us in November 2011.  Our talented Ann sent us a special holiday photo that included Truffle and Brulee (and Sweet Praline).


After the first of the year, Mom Paula wanted a fresh start for us since we were both living with her and appeared to be healthy, happy baby ladycats.  Truffle accepted Brulee very well as a member of our family and the picture that Ann included in our new header for 2012 included the sweetest picture of Truffle giving Brulee a bath and the satisfied look on Brulee's face is priceless. 


April was the one-year anniversary of Sweet Praline going to the Bridge.  We were both getting older and had helped Mom Paula heal, so she wanted to celebrate the memory of Sweet Praline and the happiness of her new furchildren with a new header.  Don't you just love the polka-dots?


Our last header during the first year of our blog was a beautiful graphic design by Ann with our Persian profiles.  


We hope you've enjoyed this trip down memory lane with our headers.  As many of you know, Mom Paula is a little OCD and she insists on posting for us everyday, so today is also 368 straight posts!  We don't know how we got 368 when there are only 365 day in the year.  Go figure!  We hope to be blogging for many  years to come.  We know Facebook is out there along with many other way to communicate, but we really enjoy blogging.  Thank you to all of you who have made our first year so successful.
