With our remodel going on we seem to be getting a lot of help from Toby and Scrappy! They have been getting inside of what we need to remove, grabbing pieces of debris and carrying them off…and the list goes on! We took a break, and came back into the house to find that Toby had commandeered a box that I was going to pack things in. Scrappy had to get involved and they both set to playing! So, today I share the delightful images of our cats and their antics!

Is it OK if we play with this box?

I am taking over my Mom’s blog today just like I took over the chair last night from Scrappy! Hee, hee, hee! My name is Toby and I am the cutest, well I think anyway, of all of my brothers and sister! I wanted to share with you photos of how I ousted Scrappy from a chair that I wanted to myself!

After jumping up on the chair, I managed to tuck myself in with my head pushing apart his back legs! That has got to be uncomfortable for him! Yeah, it is a bit for me too, but I am determined!

I want this chair!

I want this chair!

He would not budge! So, I really had to get myself tucked in! And I think it is working! You cannot see it but I was working my shoulder into that fat belly!

Here I am working my amazing mental powers willing him out of the chair! I think it’s working!

I am out of here!

I am out of here!

Wahoo! Pay dirt! Here I am! Not only did my physical moves work but so did my mental! Just so you know, I enjoyed the chair by myself until Mom put us both to bed!

I thought he would never leave!

Hee, hee, hee!

Uh oh! Here comes Mom! Now how do I get this to you? What is that button to the right in that pretty shade of blue? Here it goes!

We live in an area where some folks do not believe in spaying or neutering their cats. As such every year new kittens show up in the neighborhood.   Toby adopted us three years ago, and earlier this year Annie showed up on our doorstep, and she went to a good home! We now have a new kitty that has decided our home is a good place to stay. We named him Scrappy!

My name is Scrappy!

My name is Scrappy!

Today I wanted to share photos and a quick video of this very loving kitty! Maybe you might have a spot for him in your home?

Scrappy is a black male kitty with a star on his chest. As you can see from his face, this little guy has gotten into a few tussles!

Most cats stay away from people, but this cat decided he was making this place his home. Within one day we were able to pet him, and after a week he was sitting on our laps as this photo shows and so does the video below…

Rub my belly!

Rub my belly!

He is a bit skinny and we are working with him on that! He is young and still has some filling out to do. Right now he is all legs!

I am all legs!

After having a good dinner, he falls asleep at our feet!

Sleepy with a full belly!

We are looking to find a good home for this sweet boy, and if you are interested please let me know! Now, the star of today’s show, and just to show you what a love bug this little guy is, here is Scrappy in action!

Thanks for visiting with me and Scrappy today! Have a terrific Tuesday!

Back on June 29th I wrote a blog entitled Are They Related. The post was about a little kitty who was making its home here around our house. It is unfortunate that we have folks in the neighborhood who do not spay or neuter their cats. Every year we find more kittens around the area. I am happy to report that this lucky kitty, who we dubbed Annie, is going to a new home today! Here is a photo of her new house!

Annie's new home!

OK, only kidding!

But she does have a new home which she is going to today! We were lucky to have been able to have her here with us, and we will miss her!

She has been quite the chow hound supplementing the diet we have fed her with birds, frogs and mice!

Today she will be in my office with me until the end of the day when my friend and co-worker KP will be taking her to her new home!

One final shot of this lovely little girl doing what she does very well, spotting birds!

Thank you KP for helping us to find her a home!

And thank you to you for visiting today! Have a wild Wednesday!

Three years ago in June our pup Astro chased a cat up a tree. I was able to get it to come down bribing it with a can of cat food. He hung around for a couple of days and two weeks later returned and never left. This would be our sweet kitty Toby! Here is a photo of this adorable boy.

Of late we have been having regular visits from another cat. This one still a juvenile, and with a tail. Toby has no tail. We suspect that Toby and this kitty might be related. What do you think?

Now the hair is shorter on this kitten, but the coloring is so similar.  Notice the striping and the orange in the face and the pink nose.  Check out the markings on Toby’s feet and legs.  In the coming photos check out those features on the new kitty.

Now, unlike Toby who was a little love bug right off the bat, this little guy is a bit shy and only last night let me touch him. This morning, this kitty let me catch some photos that I thought that I would share with you…

A huge yawn!

We have a bird feeder in the front, and here is the baby on the prowl for the birds at the feeder!

Scene: The Pretty Feet Awards Ceremony

The Announcer: We would like to thank everyone who participated and voted in “The Pretty Feet Contest.” I am pleased that I was given the opportunity to do the announcing today. We had quite a pair to choose from. We had the 10 year old leather toes, and we had the 2 year old, soft as a baby’s behind toes to choose from. While I am partial to the leather toes, and my own dogs are barking right now, I have the pleasure to announce who won this lovely contest. May I have the envelope please. (Background sound of an envelope tearing and the announcer gasping, raising his eyebrows, lowering the envelope, then looking over his glasses, sighing heavily) And the winner is: Toby, The Face to Love!

A Face To Love

Toby: (Sounds of clearing the throat). First I would like to thank my manager and all of those people who made this possible! Next I have to say thanks to Babso2you for taking such wonderful photographs of my amazingly beautiful feet! They are pretty aren’t they? (Rubbing of one foot against the face, holding it away admiringly, then tucking it back to his side.) Oh, and to my competitor Astro, I just have this to say: Sorry old pup, but the new kid is here to stay!And, I really love the prize: Astro’s bed!

The final score:

Toby 63.64%
Astro 36.36%

Thank you for voting!
