It's Truffle's time to pose for the Sunday Selfie today. We're going to take it easy today and enjoy some down time with Mom Paula. It's been a rough week.

Caturday Art

Back to LunaPic for our Caturday Art creation.  We used the "landscape" effect for this photo of Truffle and Brulee talking to Mom Paula through the front door.

Welcoming Committee

Now that Mom Paula has the front porch rails fixed and the front porch cleaned off, she likes to sit outside in the morning or evening when it's cool. Last night, she got up from her rocking chair to come inside because it was getting dark and she saw this welcoming committee. Truffle and Brulee love the new storm door with the full glass.

Caturday Art

We love the "floating" effect in LunaPic and have used it quite frequently. Because of the yellow background in our curtains and the lighting from the window, Truffle became shades of blue and pink using the floating effect today. We hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday.

Grandparents Anniversary

Whew! We almost didn't make our daily post today! We wanted to step aside today to wish Grandma Faye and Grandpa a Happy 63rd Anniversary! Mom Paula spent most of the day with them to help them celebrate. We're so thankful we still have them in our lives and that they've been together so long and can still laugh with each other!

Thankful Thursday

We're so thankful we survived Irma and that our friends who were in her path are also safe.  Some had damage and still don't have power, but they have their lives.

Surviving Irma

We're happy to say that Irma is gone and we survived her wrath!
Truffle's safe place during Tropical Storm Irma

We've heard about Hurricane Irma for two weeks and were prepared for a major storm to hit the East Coast of South Carolina and move through our state.  Original projections had the eye going right over the middle of the state where we live.

Thinking of Our Friends



We continue to send our love and purrs to all of our friends in the path of Hurricane Irma. We're scheduled to get high winds, rain, and possible tornadoes today.

Truffle is cautiously taking it easy on the kitchen chair this morning. Everything is calm in SC right now with a few wind gusts. We continue to purr for all of our friends in Florida.

Caturday Art

We used the "Paper Art" effect in LunaPic to create this artistic rendition of Brulee.  We used PicMonkey to add some green back to her eyes and add the frame.

We are purring really hard for all of our friends in Florida and other states who are in the path of Hurricane Irma.  Luckily for us, Irma has taken a Westward turn and we won't be right in the path as predicted earlier in the week, but we will be on the East side where tornadoes and high winds can occur. Take care everyone!

Healthier Pets. Happier Lives™ with Hill’s® Science Diet®

I remember our attitudes about pets were so different when I was a child. Dogs and cats stayed outside, we fed them the least expensive food we could find at the grocery store along with human table scraps, and we only took them to the vet when they were sick. That was a long time ago! We are becoming more aware of the health and safety of our pets as they live indoors, eat a quality diet, and visit the veterinarian on a regular basis.

It's September

Truffle presents September

We can't believe it's already September! We thought we'd share the monthly themes for September that are related to cats. We have a lot happening this month and we can't wait to share our special days with you. 

Mom Paula said to let you know it's Gamecock Football season beginning tomorrow!

Wellness® Core® Simply Shreds #ChewyInfluencer

Truffle and Brulee love food that has a lot of liquid in it. As many of you know, Brulee eats in the stereotypical fashion of a Persian by picking up her food with her tongue. This sometimes makes it difficult for her to eat chunks or pate food.

Cooking with Cats Coloring Book - Review/Giveaway

Did your human love coloring as a child? Does your human love cats? Does your human love to eat? Does your human need to find something to do to help relax her and take her mind off of the everyday stresses of life?  If your human can answer yes to these questions, perhaps she could find a "new" hobby with coloring books designed for adults.

Loving Animals Touch Your Soul

Truffle

We've been very reflective the past couple of weeks. We're doing fine and are moving forward with some changes in the near future. Mom Paula loved this quote when she found it because it truly represents how she feels about all of the furchildren in her life.

Rainbow Remembrance Day

Rainbow Remembrance Day was begun in 2015 by Deb Barnes of  Zee and Zoey’s Cat Chronicles. Deb state she began this day in honor of her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, who crossed the rainbow bridge in 2013. Deb tells us that "Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is a special day for pet guardians to honor the memory of those beloved pets in their life they have loved and lost, but have never forgotten. Whether fur, fin, feathers, scales or something else, this is a day to remember and honor them."

Caturday Art

Truffle is featured for our Caturday Art today. We used the "space" effect in LunaPic for this heavenly photo of our sweet girl. Her eye is completely healed, but Mom Paula watches her like a hawk when she starts scratching her ear or the girls are playing rough!

Remembering Beignet

Beignet (RIP) at 9 weeks old - August 2011

We pause today to remember our little brother, Beignet, who left this earth at 11 weeks of age due to a sarcoma. You can read his story from last year's post. Beignet was Truffle's only litter mate and he was a special little man cat.

Take Your Cat to the Vet Day

August 22nd is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day. We want to help keep your cat healthy by encouraging you to get routine check-ups for your cat(s). Did you know that 83% of cats visit the veterinarian before their 1st birthday, but over 50% don’t return until they become sick or are in pain? With regular healthcare, your veterinarian can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s long-term health.

Up until this year, we visited our vet on an annual basis for our checkups...

Total Eclipse in SC

Unless you've been hiding under a rock the last few weeks, you know about the total solar eclipse that will be traveling across the United States today.  We're in the path in South Carolina to experience the total eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, and earth line up so perfectly that the moon blocks the sun, creating rare and spectacular effects across the sky and throughout the natural environment, including darkness in the middle of the day.

Truffle is claiming her eclipse glasses for the Total Eclipse in SC today

Caturday Art

We're featuring Truffle today for our Caturday Art Creation since her beautiful eye is back to normal. We went back to LunaPic, but tried a new effect for today's artwork - landscape.  We love the results and think it looks like an oil painting on canvas.

Black Cat Appreciation Day

We stepping aside today to celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day. Did you know that black cats (and dogs) are usually passed over in shelters and are not adopted or worse?  We think black cats are beautiful and wish people didn't think they are bad luck because of some stupid superstition!
Mr Jones wants you to know he's beautiful

We're sharing some photos of Aunt Dorenda's cat, Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones was found as a kitten by Mom Paula's nephew and now lives the happy life on their 31-acre farm.  Mom Paula was a little worried about him 2 years ago because he wasn't looking as healthy and was a little "hissy" if you know what we mean.  A little over a year ago, they purchased a 31-acre farm and once Mr. Jones was comfortable in his new surroundings, he's blossomed back into the beautiful, healthy, and happy cat we love.
Mr. Jones with Zoey (Mom Paula's great niece), Mom Paula, Grandpa Paul, and on the porch at the farm

We know a lot of beautiful house panthers through the Cat Blogging World and wish them the happiest of days.  Our wish is the more people would realize the beauty of these cats and consider adoption when bringing a fur feline into their homes.

Communicating with Your Cat

Have you ever wondered what your cat is thinking?  Is your cat displaying behavior that is undesirable or different? Do you sometimes feel your cat is trying to tell you something but you don't understand what? Do you have a desire to talk with a cat who is no longer with you? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, a session with an animal communicator may be the perfect thing for both you and your cat(s).

Mom Paula and Truffle talk all the time

Truffle Tuesday

Truffle was out from under the bed longer yesterday.  She spent most of the evening resting on the throw Spitty sent us for Secret Paws at Mom Paula's feet.  Her eye is better, but she's still squinting, especially with light.  Her beautiful silver/white fur is stained from the eye medication, but we know that will clean up.  Mom Paula's heart melts when Truffle turns upside down and looks at her.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Getting Spoiled

We're taking it easy today and getting a little spoiled (more than usual).  Mom Paula keeps hugging us and giving us treats.  Brulee is calming down and Truffle's eye is a little better.  She is squinting a little bit today, but we're sure that scratch is uncomfortable.
