Feline Friday - 11/11/22

Sunday is my 2 month Gotchaversary and Momma says there will be a party and decorations! The decorations will be white and it will be outside on the ground. Doesn't sound very festive to me but Momma is excited. Inside, we are going to spend the day together on the couch eating snackies & watching movies. Momma will be stitching, I'll be making biscuits or sleeping and Sissy will be running around like the cray-cray calico gal that she is. Party on dudes!

Momma says I was a very good boi for my first vet visit. 
The lady said I had double infections in both ears and probably have had for my entire life.
I liked the lady tho and asked for lots of pets and treats.

Sad news and Happy news

Janet has been quietly and patiently trying to get me back to blogging so I’m going to give it another shot. I focused on a single hexie project for most of the last year (not making for great pictures) but this summer I started switching hexie projects every month and last month I returned to some machine sewing as well. Now I just need to get back in to picture taking.

We’ll start with the sad news

After a short illness, my beloved Zorro died on 8/1/22, barely 2 months short of his 9th Gotcha Day. I didn’t have the heart to announce it anywhere online right away and then felt it would just be weird to do it later on. It was the first time in 30+ years that I didn’t have a cat in the house and it was incredibly lonely for the longest time. I’ve never picked a cat, always adopting strays, so I had a lot of time to think about what kind of cats I would seek when the time was right…

Luckily I didn’t have to wait long because here’s the happy news!

Hi! My name is Mouse and I’m a 3 year old white & silver tabby, long legged model of mancat. Check out my big ears and don’t miss the scar over my right eye showing that I’m a tough street cat with a big heart.

My Gotcha Day was 9/13/22 but I showed up on Momma’s porch at the end of August. Someday I’ll tell you how she crawled across the grass to try to pet me for the first time.

My hobbies include being quiet as a mouse, always holding Momma’s paw with my own, playing greeting committee to all that come to our house, sleeping on Momma’s lap, bird watching, chasing/wrestling my little sissy and making lotsa biscuits!

I’m no longer afraid of … the kitchen ceiling fan!

Hi! My name is Holly and I’m a 5 month old polydactyl dilute tabico with dichroic eyes!

My Gotcha Day is 9/20/22 and I’m the second calico that Momma has rescued from behind the liquor store next to her office. Someday I’ll tell you how hard I tried not to be rescued cuz people are scary.

My hobbies include playing with toys in the tub, chasing a mysterious red light, sounding like a herd of elephants while I run at full speed, looking out all the windows and chasing/wrestling my brother. I run my own business called the Calico Dusting Service while I get behind and under every appliance or piece of furniture.

I’m no longer afraid of … Momma!

Happy Feline Friday from Mouse & Holly!!
