Thursday Tribute

MomBean is sad to hear of Buzzerbee's trip to the Bridge. She had to help her two old kitties Rudy (age almost 16), and Spotcat (almost 15) when they were sick. (Spotcat's passing was kinda traumatic...) So she wanted to share somethin a friend of the family told them years ago when Spotcat was sick. We hope it helps somekitty today.

"When the time is near, hold each other as close as you can. Don't worry about what to say-hearts speak on a different language than simple words; you'll be heard. All you have to do is breathe-inhale softly and remember the moment. Put your nose to theirs and breathe-share a breath together. That way they will always be with you, and you with them. Let their last few breaths be from the one they love to help lift their wings."

MomBean, stop crying...

Wacky Widebody Wednesday

My post was going to be for Wacky Wednesday-
KidBean was trying to play Tent Wars with me.
I walked away for a quick bite and MomBean had put this up for, ahem, Widebody Wednesday.
Funny. Reeeeeal funny, Woman.

Mancat Monday

Look, just because you can't get comfy at night because of your neck is bent backwards, that doesn't mean you can interrupt my post-breakfast, pre-nap snooze. Can you not see the eye rolling, here?

Saturday Caturday

Today I'm giving lessons in Yarn Boxing.

First, you must warm up the yarn with a few shallow swipes, along with getting it juuust moist enough to play with. Too little water and it's too light to catch, too much and it won't fly properly.

When the yarn is just right, (and you've got the crazy eye going on), you start smack talking and fast whappin' the yarn. Some floorwork keeps the yarn down at rabbit kicking level.

WOO HOO! If the yarn tries to escape then it's on! Airborne yarn boxing is the best! You can whap it back and forth, up and down, and really get going! Don't worry if the yarn tries to after your whiskers, it can't really do anything beyond tickle.

...and when MomBean asks where all of her yarn went, blame BabyBean.

Treats Thursday

Did someone say treats?

MomBean found me some kittycrack new treats that I inhale like a hoover really like.

Alright kitties, let's help!

MomBean just read about a kitty who could use some help over at this site. (Scroll down to see her picture.) Here's the scoop:

"CAT LOOKING FOR FOREVER HOME 6/17: We found this beautiful young female cat outside my home last week, very hungry and skinny and starved for human attention. She is either pregnant, recently nursing a litter, or both. I cannot keep her because of my rats and mice — I am not a cat person! This is one incredibly sweet and attention-loving cat. She answers to "Kitty" and comes when called, follows me around the house, and hasn't tired yet of being petted and scratched.

We will be taking her this week to be spayed, get shots, dewormed, and tested for FeLV and FIV. If you would like to donate a dollar or two to help with her medical costs, it is appreciated! If you are local to the Houston, TX, area and are interested in adopting this cat please contact me. She will be officially for adoption once I know for certain her health status. There will be a small adoption fee to ensure she goes to a committed, indoor-only forever home, but I will refund part of the fee with proof she has been microchipped by her new owner. Vet reference(s) strongly preferred."
Now, MomBean and I talked and if they weren't all the way over in Texcatas, we would take her in. But we're waaaaaaaay away from there so the next best thing we can do is help with her vet bills and fees. I'm gonna work up an auction in the next couple of days to help. I'm waiting to hear back from the fosterbean to get the latest info.

Tech Update Tuesday

HeBean is still waiting for the new monitor to come in, so I'm slaptopping it again. I thought it was going to be fixed today because there was a HEOOOGE box on the porch, but it was empty. (MomBean can't figure out why they want us to send the monitor back before getting the new one...) Anyway, some words were said that I know the kidBeans didn't need to hear, so I occupied them with a straw while the bigBeans said more things about where the computer comes from and where the monitor is going to go.

All I know is that I'm fairly sure it won't fit where HeBean is referring to.

We've almost got out Secret Paws box together, MomBean is finishing the last part before it gets mailed out. If I let her, that is. At one point she asked for my opinion and I wouldn't give it back to her. I even swiped at her hand when she tried to move me away. She gave me 'The Look' and I let go; I'm not a big fan of kitty time outs.

Happy Purrfday MomBean

She said if I told I'd be in trubble, but I don't care. ;)

I don't go up to MomBean and start clawing away, but I tend to reach up to get her attention and don't pull my claws in, so I wind up using her leg like my scratch pad. I don't mean to, it just happens. Same with the screen window. But I did get to go outside yesterday and chirp at some birdies and chase bugs, so I think I'm forgiven.

MomBean's main computer broke so she's on her slaptop now, so no pictures for a few days. But I'll try to pose for a good one once it's back to rights. And I'll do the First Five Days Meme that my adorable sweet tuxie girl Millie tagged me for then too.

Happy Father's Day to all of the HeBeans out there!

MomBean says I'm off the hook tommorrow, but only 'cause it's a special day. HeBean just told me what is was and I'm UPSET because I didn't get any previous warning and I don't have anything for-

SHUSH or you're in the cathouse for another day.

Thoughtful Thursday

So. Grandbean left early this morning and none of my beans seem very happy today. I'm going to spend today trying to get them to feel better and I'll start doin' the blog rounds later tonight.

Tuesday Toes

Grandbean is still visiting, but here's a quick toe shot!

Look what Grandbean got me!

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

Ok, I get it, MomBean's MomBean is here for a visit, and man....she loves me.
Heh. I'll be off and on for the next few days, I'll stop by when I can!

Mancat Monday

I am tired. KidBean has been running around the house while MomBean has been trying to clean the house at the same time. (And poor HeBean has the maybebarfs, came home from work not feelin' too good. I'll have to go sleep on his feet later to help)

Apparently there's another bean coming tommorrow to visit, which has gotten KidBean so worked up. The little guy is downright set on vibrate. What's a Grandbean?

Kittybeds are goin' out today, I apologize for MomBean's delay. Really, it's a lot to keep all of these beans organzied...
