Friday at the Movies

We think Mom Paula works enough at the office and we're tired of her coming home and working again.  Truffle tries to stop Mom Paula from working by sitting in front of the computer monitor at night.
Wouldn't you rather look at this face than that old computer monitor?

Mom Paula just picks up Truffle and puts her on the floor.  Do you think that deters Truffle?  If you guessed "no", then you would be correct!  Truffle just jumps back up on the computer desk and then will spread out on top of the papers.
Wait a minute!  That's not work!  That's a game!!!

When this doesn't work, both of us join in the effort and jump on the computer desk!  This usually gets Mom Paula's attention. The only problem is that she needs to clean off her desk so both of us can rest up here for lots of scritches!




Pee ess - Would you believe Truffle turns 2 years old on Sunday?

Thankful Thursday

We're thankful we have a window in Mom Paula's office that goes all the way to the floor so we can watch bird and squirrel TV all day long!  This is also where we come running when Mom Paula comes home at night to greet her!  Mom Paula is thankful she can see our little floofy heads pop in the window when she clicks the car door alarm.  We're thankful that she leaves the blinds up just enough for us to see everything and she leaves them open 24/7.

Trouble Truffle

We hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day yesterday and ate plenty of barbeque.  Mom Paula enjoyed her BBQ and came home with her left over Diet Coke with a straw.  She was foolish enough to put in on the desk where Truffle rests.  Truffle loves straws and as soon as Mom Paula turned her head, Truffle went to get a drink of Diet Coke.
 Hmmmm...This looks and smells good from this side.

 And it's even more interesting from this side.

Ahhhhhh!  The sweet taste of success!
Mom Paula soon took the cup with the fun straw away from me after this picture.
All I wanted was a little drink of Diet Coke to keep my beautiful body in top form.

Memorial Day 2013

Today is Memorial Day in the United States.  It's a day where we remember those who've served in our military and fought for our freedom.  We honor all people (and animals) who've served in the military.

Mom Paula sang a special solo for Memorial Day yesterday at church.  The sound technician recorded it with his cell phone and posted it on FB.  We thought we'd share it on our post today for your enjoyment.

Easy Like Sunday

Mom Paula is back home with us so we're going to take it easy!  Have a great day.

Pee ess - Thank you for all of your purrs for Miss Vicky.  Mom Paula was with her when she received the phone call from the surgeon on Friday and the surgeon said all of the tissue was benign and all of the margins were clear.  We still don't know if Miss Vicky needs to go through radiation, but we were so relieved with the results.

Not Again!

Truffle tried her best to keep Mom Paula from leaving us for a few days, but Mom Paula fooled us and took a different suitcase!  Mom Paula is visiting with a friend who just had surgery for breast cancer.  Please keep Miss Vicky in your purrs and thoughts.

Friday at the Movies - Lickety Sticks

We've already shared a post about our Lickety Stick and how much we love it!  We've learned to come running when Mom Paula starts shaking the container, ready to start licking.

Mom Paula gets so amused at how long we'll lick the Lickety Stick (she's easily amused).  Truffle has long continuous licks and Brulee takes short little licks.  We like this thing so much that both of us will lick on it at the same time and not even fight over it.  We hope you enjoy watching us enjoy our Lickety Stick.

Old Movies

Mom Paula is so old that she still has a bunch of video tapes for a VCR!  She wishes she could find a worthy organization to donate them to or a place to sell them and get a little green papers.  In the meantime, we have a lot of movies to watch (we think we still have a working VCR player.  MOL!
At least you could get a clear picture MOM!!!

Pee ess - We want to wish Mom ML a very happy birthday today!  She hasn't been blogging in a long time because of moving, health issues, etc., but we still love her and think of her often.  We bet a lot of you didn't realize that Mom ML was our human Godmother along with Auntie Deb.

Trouble Truffle Tuesday

Uh oh!  Trouble Truffle is at it again.  Mom Paula had to buy a new alarm clock a few months ago because Truffle kept climbing on top of it and pressing the buttons and turning it off.  This clock is only about 1 inch deep, but Truffle still manages to get on top of it and turn off the alarms.  Could it have something to do with not liking Mondays?

Go Away Monday

We don't know why the weekend is so short and why Monday insists on messing up a good thing.
How dare Monday interrupt my beauty sleep!

Easy Like Sunday

We're taking it easy today.
 Brulee is peeking with one eye to make sure the flashy box is gone before she takes her beauty nap.

Truffle is "out like a light" for the day.

Photo Hunt - Glass


Brulee likes to sit on the glass table, especially after Mom Paula has shined it up!

Friday at the Movies - The Best Medicine

When Mom Paula was home sick with shingles a couple of weeks ago, Brulee stayed by her side in the bed.  When Mom Paula would wake up, Brulee would move beside her or climb on her lap and turn on her healing purr motor.  Mom Paula says that was the best medicine.

What's so unique about this is that Brulee is a lot like Sweet Praline was.  Brulee doesn't like to be held, isn't a lap cat, and tends to play a game of "catch me if you can" when Mom Paula tries to pick her up to love her.  The video below is of poor quality, but if you turn up your sound, prepare to be totally relaxed by her purr.

Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for my new Laurel Burch feather/ribbon wand toy we won from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody!  It has a big orange fev-ver, an orange and white ribbon, and a Laurel Burch designed toy on it It's lots of fun.  If I could just keep Truffle away from it . . .
 Brulee grabs the orange fev-ver!

 Look at the long ribbons!

Attack!

National Straw Hat Day

Today is National Straw Hat Day on the CB. We live in the sunny South in the United States so we definitely need a straw hat to keep from getting a sunburn (something Mom Paula hasn't learned yet!) 

We had the hardest time deciding which hat to wear to show off our beautiful floof.  Did we make the right choice?

Truffle Tuesday

Several weeks ago we entered a drawing for a special Laurel Burch package from Petsmart  on March 29 at Cat  Chat with Caren and Cody.  We had no idea we'd been selected to receive a package because the announcement was made when Mom Paula had her surgery to remove the skin cancer.  We were quite surprise to receive a package in the mail a couple of weeks ago and opened it to see a treasure of Laurel Burch cat stuff.  

Truffle thinks the coolest thing was the Laurel Burch cat carrier.  Mom Paula only had enough green papers to buy one cat carrier when Truffle came to live with her and luckily, only one of us at a time has needed to travel in it.  We'll both go in it with no problems together, but she was worried about an emergency or if we had to travel a long time and knew we needed a second carrier.  This was a God-send to us, especially the fact that Truffle loves it.  
Truffle claiming the cat carrier as her own 
(notice the toy in front, but we'll talk about that in another post)

It's just my size!

Hurry up and zip it up! (Truffle was actually biting on the top to pull it over her)

I'm taking it easy in my new kitty bed!  Isn't it beautiful?
Truffle was so comfortable zipped up in the carrier that she started purring.

Don't the colors of this beautiful Laurel Burch kitty bag match my floof purrfectly?

Brulee didn't like the carrier too much.  She still prefers the hard carrier with more room.  Thank you so much to Caren and Cody and Petsmart for this wonderful package.  We'll share more about the other two items later.

Where Did It Go?

We know the weekend was just here yesterday and now it's gone!  Where did it go?  We think Monday is our prime suspect!

Happy Mother's Day


Today is a very special day for human females all over the world.  It's Mother's Day and we want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of the human moms.  There are also those special human moms to us kitties who are even more special.  Even though Mom Paula was married 21 years, she never had any children, so she gives all of her time, energy and love and will sacrifice things for herself for us.  She's our special human mom and we love her.
Brulee, Mom Paula, Truffle

Mom Paula wants to send special wishes and love to her mom, Faye, on this Mother's Day.  Grandma Faye turns 77 this year.  We think she looks wonderful!

Photo Hunt - Lazy


We've noticed a lot of people are posting pictures of cats sleeping for today's Photo Hunt theme of lazy.  We protest!  Cats are NOT lazy; we are just getting our beauty sleep.

Friday at the Movies: Floof Rasslin'

We think most of you know that we're half sisters (11 1/2 weeks apart) and that we didn't come to live with Mom Paula at the same time.  Since day 1, we love to rassle.  At first, Truffle was a little rough with Brulee, but Brulee would give back everything Truffle would throw at her.  We are not really cuddle buddies, but we do get along great.  We still love to rassle.  Even though it looks like we are fighting in this video, all we really get is a mouth full of floof.  Don't you just love the tail action?

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Thankful Thursday

We're thankful we have each other to tussle with!  Mom Paula is always afraid we're going to hurt each other, but each time we try to bite, all we get is a mouth of floof.  Besides, we're just playing.

Truffle Tuesday

Truffle has been behaving lately so we can't call today Trouble Truffle Tuesday.  Instead, Truffle wanted to showcase her silver shading on her face, her velvety black nose, and her ever changing green eyes.


Pee ess - We want to send special comforting purrs to Mom Sharon from Friends FurEver and Cousin Trooper as they grieve the loss of Auntie El yesterday after a long battle with cancer.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

We're having a great time this year celebrating Cinco de Mayo since we are official ladycats instead of baby cats like last year.  We hope everyone as a wonderful safe day today.


The Tabby Cat Club is having a great party today.  Even though we aren't tabbies, we're going to head over and show everyone how to party.


Pee ess - We've made a couple of changes with our settings to allow replies to comments.  In order to do this, we had to change to embedded comments.  Please let us know if you have any problems commenting on our blog.  If you can't leave a comment, please email us.

Photo Hunt - Under


Truffle better watch out sitting under Brulee.  Brulee may look asleep, but she can quickly pounce on a moment's notice!

Friday at the Movies - With a Little Help from My Paw

Brulee has the small little Persian mouth which makes it hard for her to eat her treats and crispies at time.  However, with a little help from her paw, she keeps the treats in her mouth until she can eat it!

Fancy Feast Bag

A few of months ago (December to be exact), Sparkle the Designer Cat (along with several other blogs) was sponsoring a give away for a beautiful "Fancy Feast" tote bag.  Of course we entered because we loved the silver shaded Persian on the bag and our mom is always carrying stuff!  We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we won one of the bags and even more pleased that Sparkle's silhouette was on the back.  Mom Paula has been a little slack about posting about some of our packages lately, but she had a little time this week since she was at home recovering.  

Brulee thinks this bag was specifically designed for her!  What do you think?
 This is my bag!  Look at the eyes - the nose - the face!

 Look whose silhouette is on the back - Sparkle!!!

There must be something else in here . . .
