In Memoriam

If you haven't already done so, please stop by Sparkle's blog, for her memorial and her commentathon for Tabby's Place.

Her life was dedicated to helping Cats, for their Highest Good, and her work continues now, even in memory.

We are still in sadness over her loss. 

Comments are off.

Stella Luna

You maybe can't tell
But I am purring a lot
I like hangin out on the bedtime table  
I lie here when TW says it time to go to bed
And I purr us both into sleeps

The Passing of a Titan

Afternoon, August 20, 2014
We would like to say goodbye to one of the Cat Blogosphere's best and brightest.
From our first day blogging to today, all these 9 years later; Sparkle The Designer Cat was a permanent fixture in our world. 
She always managed to get her comments in first, always had interesting things to say and never ever  got snarky, (well, except where Binga was concerned).
She is gone now; we just read the news on Facebook. 
Kissed by a Sunbeam
Janiss Garza is quite something.  When I first saw her at Blog Paws I instantly thought; no way!  She was warm, open and gregarious and she looked nothing like I had pictured her.(even with facebook profile shots).  I really enjoyed meeting her, chatting and hearing about the levels of professionalism that she wanted her blog to be in and remain, after all, Sparkle had important things cat owners should know, in addition to cute photos and product reviews.  She strove to be more, and she was.  
Window View
When I read that she 'didn't come home' today I wept (as I'm sure a lot of you did too).  I admired how she stated plainly that they don't believe in the rainbow bridge but she hoped she would continue on in our hearts.  My heart burst with pride for her bravery in writing that.

Special Cat Nip Quilts

Here is one special Cat Nip Quilt I made for Pia to give to her beloved Dexter on their anniversary.

I had fun creating this with the ideas that Pia had given me about what she really wanted to say to her lover boy.

you can see her face below on the left with hearts in her eyes

Dexter is on the right side

I created the red circle with the line in it to cross out all the other 'boys' and used a stenciled 'x' to keep interest. It was really fun making this. 

 Pia was very happy with her love note to her beloved.  He said he really loved it too.

Sweet Baby G

Oh Darling Girl, good luck in your new forever home. 
I will think of you always and wish I could have kissed you one last time goodbye.

Mr. Ollie and The Sock Bomb

 So the other night I thought my big kids deserved some serious fun time. I found the KatNipLounge packages from BlogPaws (they had to be hidden since the smell would about knock over a self respecting human) and it wasn't moments before Ollie was crying and carrying on and following me around the house crying and... ALRIGHT! I will make you a sock bomb.  (it's circled in red below) Ollie was sorta trippin out lookin all dejected after I kinda snapped at him for goin after the wee ones.  I snuck it in under his butt.  (he likes being scratched there and gets all droolie and bitey in a cute way)
Next thing you know...
Lookit his little upside down love heart.  Ok, nevermind. I'm weird.  But I loves my son and he got some good lazer action and upside down toofs showin too.  I snorgled him to death, I did.  I don't mind tellin ya, he can drool and purr all over me anyday. 
The kittens loved them too but HOLY COD are they fast!  In no time flat they each had a sock bomb and were flying around the living room like maniacs!
So adorable.

It's An Outrage!

So you think you know someone...
and then, three little mongrels kittens come live us for while (she says)  and so today she's preparing for work, la de-frickin-da... WHEN
The scene begins:
**strange noises coming from the front hall area near the open front door
 (oh fer cryin out loud you bunch of ...audience members;keep yer furs on!  the screen is closed!)
Anyhow, as I was sayin'. 
Strange noises. 
Woman comes running.
Now any self respecting (so called) cat-mom would have had the camera phone on video in a blink! 
And therefore could have thrust onto the world stage the sight of a small, grey plush kitten
going backwards all around the place banging into everything and causing much hissing from grown up cats who had come to inspect the strange noises because
said kitten
had her head
neatly stuck
the empty tall tissue box
All I'm sayin'...
is that you KNOW if it had been the Ornj GOON or Cod forbid ME-- That little video woulda made the nightly news and we'd be sittin pretty for next years Pettie awards (PAWS DOWN) for that bit of film brilliance.
But no, sadly not.
And the offrontery continued when to drown out the appaws and laughter and adulation of all my fans I could still hear ringing in my lovely head... all I heard was
:OMG!  Kitten,, OHHH noooonononnono!  OH poor baby!  Omygoodness!  Oh you poor widdow fing...oh...."
OH  B  L A R F!
it's an absolute outrage and scandal!
I have nothing further to say on the matter.
Feel my pain fellow inmates; we could'a been STARZ!!!
Sweet G:  "srsly?   Can you say 'Drama Queen?'
Ms. Stella "I heard THAT!"

I gotcher tail!

Sunday Catinee's (links fixed)

Some kitten's had a bit too much nip! 

And these kittens are enjoying the sun and we are even rewarded with a wee pink tongue near the end.
