Happy 1st Birthday Daiquiri

Hard to believe Daiquiri was this little when she came to us as a foster.

And got goofier with age....we love this picture.

we sure had our ups and downs and testing scares

She still loves a good snuggle. Tim is her favorite guy.

This picture was just taken the other day. She is completely adorable and goofy. Her racing stripe is crooked but what else would we expect. She has several nicknames (don't we all) but will respond most often to "Brat". She LOVES Junior and plays with the kittens all the time. Mom has had to warn Daiquiri off a couple of times when she gets a little rough with the littler ones, but Daiq backs off and watches. She has been a joyous addition to the family.

Happy Birthday Daiquiri!!!

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Our friends at Zee and Zoey decided to set up a day to remember all our friends who have gone to the Bridge. They lost their cat Mr. Jazz just last year on this day and while they are still grieving wanted to share the day with all those that have experienced we all have. Deb even wrote a book called Purr Prints of the Heart in honor of Mr. Jazz.

You can join the event on facebook too.

We have lost several members of our family over the years....and fosters as well. But last year was hard when Maestro crossed in May and then we lost baby Coral in October. And while they are gone from this world, we know they are healthy and safe and we will be together again someday.

Thankful Thursday

Adoption news:
Tamarind and Tumeric were both adopted last week!!! (not together, but still) Since mom doesn't do the adoptions at the center, we don't know anything about this new families, but we wish them good luck!!

Nashville and London are now both on Petfinder. Mom is reluctant to send London to the adoption center just to avoid him getting snotty again....we shall see. However, we suspect just getting him up on Petfinder will get him a home. :)

Speaking of snot, Tostada is back with us for a little bit. She had gotten pretty sick right after going to the adoption center. Then she came back out to the adoption floor, got sick, came back out, got sick.... notice a pattern??  Anyhow, she was on the adoption floor on Friday when mom stopped by and when mom got her out, she noticed Tostada seems kind of wheezy. Rather than put her back, mom said she could come to our house in the hopes she would recover a little better. For now she is in the tower so mom can catch her to medicate her. We don't care but she has been growled at several times by Topeka and Nashville.

Mom will be at an event tomorrow night and plans to take London. After last weekend, he appears to be pretty bomb proof. :)

scratcher review

**as part of the Blogger Influence Group, we get a free product once a month to review for but that does not influence our opinions. The product review is our honest opinions. is not responsible for the content of this review.

This time around we were offered several things but decided to give a new toy a try since mom says we don't need more treats (whatever). We got the Catit Bench Scratcher and LOVE IT.

We had solely been using vertical posts until one momma cat refused to use those and insisted on using the carpet to sharpen her nails. Mom decided to get one over on her and bought a cardboard scratching pad for her. Not only did the momma cat like it, but the rest of us did too. We beat the daylights out of the last one, so it was good timing when we were offered this one.

As head mancat, Tommy was the first to check it out. Snoopervised by Topeka of course....

hmmmm.....what is it??
(keep in mind no catnip was used....we don't get that much here
due to a certain head mancat being a mean drunk)

Tim decided it makes a wonderful throne.

Notice Nashville balancing on one end.
This would be one drawback to this particular bench....
when an adult walks on it, they tend to avoid the ends so big problem.
The kittens tend to step on the edges and make the whole thing pop up.
Except in this case - he must not weigh enough. MOL

also good as a head rest

or a sleeping bench

If you look closely, you will notice some of the red paper missing. A certain 1 year old kitten (*cough*Daiquiri*cough*) decided that is didn't meet with her approval for some reason and has taken to removing the paper. Which of course leads to pieces of red paper all over the condo. But it isn't a very big deal and mom says she can live with it.

We have had it out now for over a week and considering the number of cats using it, it has held up to the abuse quite well. Mom has to order us more food and did notice that Catit makes bench that doesn't have legs and she may order a couple for us with our next food order.

Altogether, we give it paws up!!
