Tattle Tale Tuesday with Teal'c



Do you know who did this vishus thing to my cute nose? Your sweet little Rosie. That's right, guys and gals, she's not as sweet as she makes herself out to be. I'm going to nurse my wounds...

Have a nice Tuesday.

Mancat Monday: Things to Do



I've got lots to do today.
1. Snoopervise Mom while she works.
2. Eat.
3. Bathe.
4. Get my furs brushed.

But first...an energizing nap.

Rosie & Nip Toy

I finally got to play with the cool nip toy that Skeezix sent with my flirty collar. It was very cool; had little shamrocks on it! But it did not make it through my playing. I guess I am a little bit rough on my toys because all of them gets torn up. Here is a video of me before the toy got deaded.

Rosie Gets a Makeover

Hi everybuddy,

I decided to give myself a makeover to try to look more like Mommy. So I tried this brown wig...lipstick...and even contacts to make my eyes blue! I think I look a bit overdone, though, and that I look best without the wig and makeup. I must be what they call a natural beauty.

Thursday Thirteen: A Teal'c of Many Colors

Wordy Wednesday

Thanks to the lovely Zoolatry gals (Zoey, Maggie, and their Human Ann) for making these graphics for us for the Wordy Wednesday 2009 Challenge!


Since we could only choose two and she already made a beautiful graphic for Teal'c before, we entered Kaleb and Rosie into the challenge.

Here is Kaleb's...

Even though he may not look nonchalant in the pic, it's true! Unless he is feeling unwell, he is indifferent to most things that go on. He will only grace Mom and Dad with his presence once in a while. I think he does this so that they will feel it is "special" when he lets them pet him. What an ego he has!

Here is Rosie's...

Rosie has been bashful from the day she was adopted! She runs into the bedroom and hides under the bed whenever we have visitors. If the visitors stay over, Rosie will only come out at night to look at them while they are sleeping. What a silly girl she is sometimes!

Thanks again to Zoolatry for the cute pics.

Sweet Feets

Do you know who these cute mismatched feet belong to?



Coincidentally, Mom's trail name (when hiking) is "sweet feet" because she always knows the perfect place to step!

Messy Mancat Monday

'Tis I, Teal'c...I apologize for looking a bit disheveled this Mancat Monday. I partied too hard over the weekend!

Easy Like Sunday Morning



Thanks for stopping by my Gotcha Day Party yesterday, everybuddy! I had a blast and even got to dance with Toy and got a kiss on the cheek and a dancing underpants e-card from Harley!

We are real tired after all that partying so we will just sleep it off today. Have a great Sunday. :-)

Rosie's Gotcha Day!



Hi everybuddy,

Welcome to my ALL DAY Gotcha party!

Mommy & Daddy got me 4 years ago today (Mom was mistaken earlier thinking it was 5 but I straightened her out). Wow 4 years ago I was small and scared in that shelter till Mom came along and said she wanted me. I was scared but excited, too, that I found my Forever Home!

This is the earliest pic my mom can find but it was taken about 6 months after she got me.


I was about a year old then. So that means I'm over 5 now. Middle aged! I don't mind much, though.

To celebrate my Gotcha Day, my brudders gave me some presents.

Teal'c gave me a painting of himself. I think I might use this for dart practice. Haha. Just kidding. It is nice.



Kaleb gave me this card and a milk ring (the ring from a milk jug) to play with.


Here I am playing with the milk ring - one of the bestest presents ever!

Instead of many pressies, we made a donation to the shelter that I was adopted from - the Mercer County Humane Society. I did get a nice floofy feather toy, though, and I will get Mommy to post a picture of it later (since she forgot this time).

Thanks for coming to my party...enjoy the feast!

Feature Film Friday: Rosie Loves Strawberries

We know it is not quite Friday yet but we will be furry busy tomorrow so Mom had to post it now. We got a bunch of strawberries! I love them. No, no, I do not eat them. I just like to smell them! What kinds of funny things do you like to smell?

Edited to Add: Mom thought she should clarify. It is not that I like the box...it really is the strawberries! I never play with boxes, actually. But I got crazy for strawberries like I do for catnip! Strawberries make great toys. Sadly, they do not last for long and make carpet stains so I have to sneak them.

Oh and guess what...my Gotcha Day is Saturday! So don't forget to stop by!

Purrs and smooches,
Rosie

P.S. I think you can hear me purring in these videos. I purr real loud!

Happy Birthday, Toy

Toy, who is also my sweetie, is having his 5th birthday today!

What Mom? What do you mean that you can tell I've been on the computer to wish him a Happy Birthday? I don't know what you're talking about!



P.S. For those of you who guessed Zoey as the girl that Teal'c was dreaming about yesterday, you were right!

Wordless Wednesday: Who is Teal'c Dreaming Of?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Since Mom has had a hard time getting us to do anything since we finished taking medicines (because we run from her when she tries to get us to come to her), she was not able to really dress us like so many of you handsome and gorgeous kitties. But we still want to wish you all a Happy St. Patty's!

Teal'c Talks

As you know, I starred in our very own western movie production "Kitty Kitty Bang Bang."  It even won an Acatemy Award! Here was my movie poster, in case you forgot.


Since then, it has been a whirlwind! When it first opened in theaters, I was very excited.


I got paid many Temptations...


Even got my star on the "Walk of Fame."


But soon, all the fame went to my head and from there it was a downward spiral...


What is a wayward star to do but write a tell-all book...


It has been a long journey and I've decided to leave the spotlight for a while. I don't know how the famous model Daisy the Curly Cat keeps up with it all and stays so down to earth!

Psst Come Here

Hey you...come over here...


Closer...


Now give me a smooch on the nose. Or a nosetap! That's where my Mommy gives me kisses; I think it must be a very smoochable nose!

Schmoozing & Snoozing

Mom cleaned ALL DAY yesterday and then she and Daddy had Dad's boss over for dinner. I snoopervised the whole time (except dinner because I don't like strangers). After helping Mom prep for all that schmoozing, it's time for some snoozing, don't ya think?

Wordless Wednesday: Annoyed with Bad Picture

Unrequited Love

During Skeezy's Valentine's Day contest, I saw a lovely ladycat named Kirara and thought she was soooo beautiful, so I asked her to be my Valentine. She never responded and I was sad.

My heart was a little bit broken...


but after a while, I decided that I'll be ok...


in time...

Mancat Monday: Smug

Mom took this picture for my headshot for the Mancat's Club...and when she saw it she laffed and laffed. I asked her what was so funny because I thought it was a mighty fine picture - and she said I looked...get this...SMUG. Can you believe that? I think I look tough and mancatly. What do you think?

Sunday, March 8, 2009

WOW Thanks Skeezix!

As many of you know, I was one of the winners of the Valentine's Contest that Skeezix had. I just got my package in the mail yesterday and Oh My Cod...I was so excited!

I was just expecting my pretty flirty collar, which was the prize, but when Mom opened the box there was all kinds of stuff! Take a look!


There was also a toy that Mom forgot to include in the picture. I am a little bit embarrassed to say that we did not let Mom take pictures of everything before we had to have some Temptations. That was a little bit greedy of us. Oh and he also sent us some nip! But Mom says we can't have it till everyone is 100% better so we don't get too "excited" and get sick again. Mom is a party pooper sometimes.

Here are a couple of pictures of me in my brand new flirty collar (worn by Skeezix!). I am not very good at modeling because I am a little bit shy.


And when I saw this picture, I was so embarrassed! Do you see my thinning furs around my eyes and ears? I never knew I had thinning furs! My photographer was not very professional because she should have edited that out.


Do you think the flirty collar looks good with my calico colors? It was a lot of fun. That was the first time I wore anything EVER in my life! I shared the treats with my brudders Kaleb & Teal'c. Kaleb REALLY loves those fishy flakes!

Thank you Skeezix for such a fun contest and for the extra prizes you sent, too. You are a very stylish and generous mancat!

Purrs,
Rosie

Feeling Lots Better



Hi everybuddy,

Thanks so much for all your purrs, I'm feeling much, MUCH better today. :-) I gave Mom a bit of a scare since I was worse than the other two. I ate some tuna last night and some chicken today. I wish I could have that stuff all the time. I still get mad when I have to take my medicines, but I'm glad Mom is persistent because I'll be running and jumping again in no time.

This is an old pic because I now run from Mom since she usually gives me medicine when she comes towards me. Maybe she can get a new one for the weekend.

Purrs,
Kaleb

P.S. Thanks to our furiend Grettta for giving us the Proximidade Award again. You can see it in our trophy room! There are a couple of others we still need to add, too.

Feeling Blue

Feeling a little blue today...


Don't worry, I'm not really blue. See? Did I fool you?


Kaleb is a little teensy bit better today. He is drinking water real good but still will only eat mostly treats with just a little tiny bit of food. I think he might be doing this just to get treats. The vet said it was just important for him to eat for now. We have to watch him very, very closely. He doesn't sound so rattle-y when he breathes today and his eyes aren't so watery. He even jumped up to the sink all by himself today (though Mommy wishes he wouldn't do it while he's sick). Thank you everyone for the purrs...keep them coming!

Oh and we got a very nice award from Cliff and Olivia...it is the Kreative Blogger award and it made us feel much better!



The rules say to list six things that makes us happy, so here goes:
1. Temptations (we just recently tried these and we are in love).
2. Water straight from the tap.
3. Lying in front of the windows to get lots of warm sun.
4. Chirping at the birdies outside.
5. Making escape attempts when Mom has her arms full of groceries.
6. Cuddles from Mommy (and sometimes Daddy, too).

We will pass it on to (It's ok if you have it already; you don't have to post it again. Awards are fun no matter how many times you get them!):
1. Fin
2. Sherkhan
3. Island Cats
4. Sumac Stories
5. Tuck
6. Daisy

Kaleb

Our internetz is out again but we thought we would update. Kaleb seems much worse today. We will go back to the vets tomorrow with him. He is drinking a little water but won't eat anything but a few treats and isn't using the litterbox at all. He seems to be having a hard time breathing,too. In case you were all wondering, we have had feline herpes. It seems rosie is a carrier because she had it when mom adopted her (mom didn't know)and her recent infection is what got the rest of us sick. Neither Rosie nor Teal'c seemed as bad as kaleb though. So purr really hard for him please...Mom is in tears with worry.

Sorry for any typos this was done from her phone.
