Busby and I would like to dedicate our blog post today to the two cats who came before us. This beautiful tabby girl is Toot Suite. She was our Mom's first cat. She was adopted from a family who were giving away kittens back in 1984. She was TWENTY years old when Busby and I came to live here at our forever home. She went to the bridge in 2006, at the age of twenty-two.
This handsome house panther is Alex. Mom adopted him from the Lake County Indiana animal shelter in 1985 when he was a wee kitten. Alex was a grand old mancat of twenty-three when he went to the bridge in 2008.

Not that I plan to get into any mischief this weekend. I mean, just because Busby has hogged OUR blog all week. I'm not upset about that. Nope. Not at all.

We got a beautiful little tree! As you know, we have a VERY small yard. Our Moms have been wanting a Japanese Maple to grow in a container. Well, this past week, one of our non-blogging Mom's co-workers GAVE us this Japanese Maple! It was in exchange for a cherry tree that we had that was going to grow way too big for our yard. Isn't it pretty?

Our Moms have actually hung out with Guido (and his wonderful Mama & his fur-siblings) in San Francisco. Did you know Guido is a certified therapy cat? He does volunteer work all over San Francisco. He is a cat who believes in giving back to the community.
Friends, please stop by Guido's bloggie and wish him a very Happy Birthday! He has super cute photos on it from his previous birthdays.
Paisano Guido, we hope you are having a purrtastic birthday today!
xoxoxo, Raymond and Busby

Here's a Calla Lily that is growing in the little strip of dirt next to our carport. Our neighbor has a lot of Calla Lilies, so some of them have started volunteering in our yard. We like that, FREE plants!
This is our garden frog. He lives in the back yard. He stays VERY still. He keeps the fake quail company.
In front of our house there is a narrow patch of dirt. Mom planted some sweet peas there and they are THRIVING! The purple ones are a variety called Cupani. They smell REALLY good. You have to keep cutting the flowers or else they will go to seed and stop blooming.
Here's a bouquet of sweet peas that Mom cut this morning. Aren't they pretty? We wish you could smell them. Maybe Blogger will have a scratch and sniff option soon. (MOL!)

This is a photo of our succulent section. Mom is trying to do a little rock garden thing here.
This is our newest raised bed. It's got a couple of pretend quail living in it.
Hmmmm. At least I THINK they are pretend! Maybe if I stare at them long enough they will move?

Our Mom makes our food once a week. She refrigerates enough for a few days and freezes the rest to be thawed as needed. It sounds time consuming, but once you get the hang of the recipe, it only takes about thirty minutes a week to prepare the food.
The recipes my Mom uses comes from an excellent (and well known) book called "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats". Our Moms first discovered this book a few years ago when our older brother Alex developed CRF. (He was 19 human years old at the time) They fed Alex a high carb diet that they read about in the book. He lived to be 23 years old!
Feeding raw food is not for everyone. If you think you are interested in a raw diet or in homeopathic remedies for cats and dogs, you can check out Dr Pitcairn's website
HERE . We think it's a great book for everyhuman, whether they want to feed raw or not. There are cool recipes for treats in the book too, that are cooked.
We're not being paid by anyone to write this post. We had a few cats ask us about our raw diet and we figured this was a good way to answer everycat at once.
Have a lovely Tuesday, xoxo, Busby
PS-Mom is golfing today so we may not be around to visit until late this afternoon. See you later!
