Monday Movie: The Battle for the Mancat Fort

After a tense couple days, Busby and I faced off for the right to play in the Mancat Fort.

In the end, I decided that the laundry basket fort was okay, but the blue Ikea fort is better.

What we do when Mom makes our food

Mom. Hey Mom. Mom!

Hey Mom! Mom! Mom!

MOM! Can I lick the spoon PLEASE?

What do you mean I'm annoying?

*sorry about the picture quality, these were taken with a cell phone while Mom was mixing up our raw food.

Ha ha! Happy Mancat Monday!

Sunday Cinema

Here's a video from a few months ago. Please ignore my humans who are prattling on and on about how scary I look. Isn't a fellow allowed to get crazy once in awhile?

(Baby) Frootbat Friday

Hi, it's Raymond.
This is me five years ago
before I moved to my forever home.
My foster Mom cut holes in a box for us to play in. Sometimes it's the simple things that mean the most.
Happy Frootbat Friday everyone!

Honest Scrap

Hello everyone! Our new friends Katie and Glogirly gave us the Honest Scrap award earlier this week. When you get this award, you are supposed to list ten interesting (or mildly interesting) things about yourself. Are you ready? Here goes! (try to stay awake!) Our Mom is a bit obsessed about the weather and loves to take photos of weather events.
Our Mom's paternal Grandmother and Great Aunt were in Vaudeville. They were known as the Wilton Sisters. They were sometimes called the Hoosier Queens of Vaudeville. They played on the big time Keith Circuit. They played the Palace Theater in NYC and toured Europe. They also appeared in a Broadway play called "The Little Whopper".

Our Moms rescued this guy back in September. They named him "Orangey" (very original) They had him neutered (ouch) and wormed and treated for fleas. Luckily for us, he was adopted by a friend and now lives happily (and indoors) in San Jose, CA. He has a new name, it's Lewey.

Our Mom is very interested in genealogy and has traced her family tree on both sides. This is a photo of our Mom's Great Grandmother (in the middle), Grandmother (on the right) and Great Aunt.

Our Mom LOVES to play golf.
This past August she won the Santa Cruz City Amateur Tournament.

This is our REAL Mom, Nell. She was rescued by Pacific Siamese Rescue who discovered she was pregnant. She gave birth to us (and our brother Leo) when she was in foster care. Our Mom and Leo also live in California in forever homes! (and none of us are Siamese!)

We used to have an older brother and sister. Toot Suite and Alex. Toot lived to be 22 years old and Alex lived to be 23. My Mom adopted them when they were little kittens in Indiana. They moved to California with her in 1988. Alex went to the bridge in 2008, and Toot in 2006.

When Mom isn't golfing she likes to take photographs. Here on the Central Coast of California, we have our best sunsets in November.
So this time of year, Mom is usually taking photos of the sunset.

We live about 30 minutes away from the Monterey Bay Aquarium
and that is one of Moms favorite places to visit. She loves the jelly fish.

Although Mom's roots are in Indiana, she loves living here in Capitola and so do we!

Now we would like to present the Honest Scrap award to seven of our pals and hopefully they will list ten much more interesting things about themselves in their bloggies!
Thanks Katie and Glogirly!

Raymond the Tuesday Trickster

Hi, Busby here.
Sometimes I like to get all my mousies together and have a little staff meeting.
Hey! One of them is missing. I think it's the purple one!
Hee hee hee!

Have a good day everyone. Stay dry!

Flashback Friday

Hello everyone! I was looking at some old photos and thought I would share a couple with you.

Here I am when I was just about a week or two old, back in October 2004.

My foster Mom is holding me up for the camera.

And here I am five years ago today!

It's was a big day, Raymond and I ate our first solid food.

Mmmmm, food. This is making me hungry.

I think I'll go pester Mom and see if she' feed me NOW!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!

Grazing in the Grass (it's a gas, baby can you dig it?)

Hi, Raymond here.
Yesterday was a rough day, with the whole Vet cleaning my teeth thing. So today I am mellowing out by having some grass with my brother Busby.
Mmmmm, grass. Hey! Don't bogart it Busby!

That was good stuff!

Happy Thursday everybody!

(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday

Go clean Busby's teeth. He loves the attention.

Tonkinese Tuesday

Golf glove? No, you're mistaken.
This is a rare albino bald mousie that somehow got into the house.

What the heck is a golf glove?

She's nuts. This is a mousie.

Mancat Monday

What do you mean, you need to get up now?

I just got comfortable. You aren't going anywhere. Unless you are getting up to feed me.

Happy Mancat Monday everyone!

Sleeky Saturday

Hi, it's Raymond. I hear that our Vet is coming to see me on Wednesday.

I guess she's coming to clean my teeth. I think I'll stay here and maybe no one will see me.
I don't know why I need my teeth cleaned anyway. Busby's the one with the dirty teeth.

His breath smells like tuna fish and old socks.

Have a Cigar!

Hello, Busby here. I have been glued to the TV for the past week or so, watching the World Series. (Raymond didn't watch it. He's a Cubs fan and he's very bitter about how their season went.)
By now you know that my New York Yankees won and are the
2009 World Champions of Baseball!

Time to enjoy my victory cigar!

Jeez, what was in that thing? I feel kinda funny....and hungry.
