Sunday Selfie

We're so happy we can do a Sunday Selfie with both of us in the photo.
Truffle and Brulee

We think the hissing from Brulee has finally stopped whenever Truffle comes near her. Truffle appears to be more comfortable back at home again.

World Veterinary Day

Today is World Veterinary Day, which was begun by the World Veterinary Association to celebrate the global veterinary community and to highlight the important contributions of the veterinary profession and how it benefits animals and society.

Dr. Boyette and Truffle

We are so thankful for Dr. Boyette and the other wonderful vets at Cherokee Trail Veterinary hospital for the care they've given both Truffle and Brulee. They are patient with all of Mom Paula's questions and they truly appear to care about the girls.

We know we'll be visiting the vets more in the future because of Truffle's recent bladder stones and we look forward to a collaborative effort between the veterinarians and Mom Paula to make sure we get the best treatment and care possible.

Thank you to the wonderful veterinarians at Cherokee Trail Veterinary Hospital.

Lab Results

We received a phone call from Dr. Boyette this afternoon and the results from the lab indicate Truffle had Struvite Stones.

Thankful Thursday

We're so happy our little family is back together again and things are calming down - for the moment.

Can you imagine what type of conversation the girls are having in the photo above? What do you think they are saying?

Remembering Sweet Praline

Wow! It's hard to believe it was seven years ago today that I helped Sweet Praline cross the Rainbow Bridge. 
Sweet Praline

I'll never forget the "Diva of the Cat Blogosphere" and she will always be in my heart.

Together Again

We told you Truffle came home yesterday and we are so glad our little family is back together.

For the first few hours, Truffle walked around the house getting reacquainted with everything. Brulee was very patient at first, but after a couple of hours, she became hissy.

Truffle is Home!

Truffle back home


Dr. Boyette called Mom Paula this morning to give her an update on Truffle. He said her incision is looking much better, but there is still a small bump under it that we needed to watch.

Sunday Selfie

This photo is of Brulee last night when Mom Paula came home from BlogPaws.
Brulee - Sunday Selfie - 4/22

For those who may not know, this was the first time ever that Brulee had to stay alone in the house without Mom Paula or Truffle. Mom Paula was already worried about leaving Truffle at the vet when she left for BlogPaws and then she realized Brulee was experience a quiet house.

Caturday Art

We thought this theme was purrfect for Brulee with the week she's had. It's the Sadness effect in LunaPic.

Don't worry sweet Brulee, Mom Paula will be home tonight and Truffle will be home soon!

The Flats with the Exhibition Hall

Flat Truffle and Flat Brulee decided to leave the bedroom today and visit the exhibit hall to meet the brands to see what is new. We look forward to sharing these products with you in the near future.

Hello!!!

Mom Paula was so thrilled when Brulee finally came out from the back of the house today and she could see her and talk to her through the Pet Cube.

The photo is a little blurry, but we were happy to see her out and about because the pet sitter said she'd been staying in the office in the back of the house. The played with the laser and responded to both Mom Paula and Coryelle.

No update on Truffle today...

Time for BlogPaws 2018

The flat kitties are ready to celebrate BlogPaws 2018 with Mom Paula in Kansas City. Mom Paula would much rather have us with her, but at least she can see our flat representations when she goes to bed at night.

Tax Day

Today's the day! If you haven't completed your tax returns (USA), you better get on the ball and fill them out because today is the deadline to have them postmarked and mailed.

Brulee is reminding Mom Paula she should be completing the tax returns and not playing games!

Monday Morning Blues

Unfortunately, Truffle had to go back to the vet again today.

We told you a little bit about her situation on Sunday, but wanted to give you an update.

Road Tripping with a Cat


We're sure everyone has taken a road trip for a vacation, meeting, or to visit friends and family. Have you ever taken a road trip with a cat?




Traditionally, very few people have travel with their cats when on trips, but this is changing in the cat world.

Thankful Thursday

Freedom!!! These are the words Truffle used this morning when Mom Paula removed the red onesie Truffle had been wearing since last Thursday to protect her surgery incision on her belly.

Truffle isn't use to wearing clothing, collars, harnesses, or anything else on top of her Persian fur. The vet recommended the onesie instead of the dreaded collar to keep Truffle from messing with her incision.

Truffle Update

Truffle took her last pain pill on Saturday. She's been a little more active, but still taking things easy. She climbed onto Mom Paula's lap for the first time Sunday afternoon and stayed there for quite a while.

Truffle is still resisting the prescription diet cat food.

Sunday Selfie

Brulee says it's time for her face to be featured on the blog since so much time has been devoted to her sister. However, Brulee wouldn't pose long enough for us to get a good and clear photo, so Mom Paula converted it to black and white.

Truffle is feeling a little better.

Caturday Art

We loved the look of this photo of Mom Paula and Truffle using the Scribble Art Effect in LunaPic. This photo was taken the day before Truffle's surgery and the connection between Mom Paula and Truffle is obvious.

Have you ever truly communicated with your fur child?

Truffle is Home

Truffle is home!!!
Truffle at home in her red onesie


We were able to bring Truffle home around noon on Thursday. She was dressed in this cute red onesie to help keep her from licking or reopening her incision. Truffle and Brulee do not wear clothes, collars, or harnesses, so this is definitely different for her.

The Truffle Brulee Connection

The last 24 hours have been very interesting around our home. We believe everyone knows we are half sisters and we have the connection of having the same daddy cat, but it turns out, we have a lot more in common.

Brulee and Truffle hanging out in the guest bedroom

Last Friday, we found out that Truffle needed surgery to remove stones from her bladder. As any good cat mom (or dad) would feel - she was quite stressed - and the girls picked up on her tension.

Purrs for Truffle


Special purrs, prayers, and good thoughts are requested for Truffle today as she has surgery to remove stones in her bladder. We will update everyone about her status as soon as we hear from the vet. 

UPDATE: Truffle is out of surgery is in recovery. She will stay overnight at the vet hospital and come home around midday tomorrow. We'll share more details on the blog tomorrow.

Brulee's Anxiety

We've talked about Truffle's two vet visits last week and her upcoming surgery, but we wanted to share information about how Brulee is doing, too.

We honestly don't know how our friends with more than one cat do it sometimes...

Results of Vet Visit

As we stated Friday, Mom Paula took Truffle back to the vet. We honestly thought Truffle had some fur blockage, but weren't prepared for the results of the x-rays.

The vet came back from getting the x-rays and said she knew what the problem was and it wasn't good news...
