Our 3rd Blogoversary!

Hi Kitties!

Today is our 3rd Blogoversary!  The time has gone by so fast and we had no idea we could meow for so long!  We have enjoyed getting to know you all and the bestest thing about blogging is all the great kitties we have met!  Bloggers have the kindest hearts and are truly compassionate.

 I've been helping the mom since her injury.

We’d like to apologize for having been away for so long.  As you might remember, the mom injured her leg caring for some feral kitties.  Many have asked about how she is doing.  Well, it looks like surgery is in her future.

 We have exciting photos and news to share about the ferals.

Her leg is about the same as it was last month, and still very painful.  We never thought it would take so long to get better.  She had it x-rayed and thankfully nothing is fractured, but without surgery, it will take about a year for her leg to heal.  It’s a short 15 minute surgery, still it involves being put under and about a week recovery time.  She has surgery scheduled for September 18th.
 
Although our time has been limited lately,
we're looking forward to sharing more with you!

We have had the best of intentions to start posting but by the time the mom comes home from work, her leg hurts so badly she doesn’t feel like doing anything.  Maybe posting periodically would be a good compromise.  We have so much to share with you, including some exciting pictures of the ferals!
 
Thanks from all of us!

Thank you to all the kitties who have stopped by and shared our lives in the past three years.  We know you are busy kitties with lots to do, so we are honored you take time out to visit with us.

Purrs,

TwinketoeTails Kitties

Pee S,  It’s the mom’s birthday too, so you know she is going to have a wild evening sitting with her leg elevated!  MOL  (Could you tell our mom is a Leo?)

NOMS Day

NOMS Day (Not of Our Species Day) is a special day for us cause we have the bestest NOMS in our family!  We know you have seen our cousins before, but we love showing them off!

 Young Neville is the newest member.
He is about 6 months old and lives with big brother Kahn.

 Neville and Kahn love to eat!

When they hear The Girl, they come running!

Our other cousins are known as "The Carrots", cause the mom misunderstood The Girl when she was talking about the ferrets.

 We Carrots do the funniest things!

 Pepe Jack shows off his yoga skills.

 While Zena Marie shows her fashion sense.

 But over all we are SO cute!


And our tummies are as cute as any kittens!
And 5 times as long.
We think there should be a Carrot Tummy Day!
Have fun seeing all the NOMS!

There is a NOMS celebration going on at the Tabby Cat Club today too, so be sure to visit.

Baby Love

 Who could resist an adorable kitten?

The most squee-able event, Baby Love, is happening at the Tabby Cat Club and we just had to pawticipate!  So today we are showing off our baby pictures!

 First up is Oui Oui.

 You can see her shaved little belly.
Even at 8 weeks they made sure she wouldn't add to overpopulation.
Either she was a messy eater or she ran through her kibble.

Both she and The Girl were kittens!

Julie and Carl are brother and sister, so of course they were kittens together too.

Julie was just as beautiful then too!


Mica Moo was 4 years old when she came to live with us.

These are the earliest pictures we have of her.
She looked like a young cat because she was underweight,
weighing a little over 7 lbs.
Now she is more like 13.

For more adorable kittens, go visit the Tabby Cat Club!
There's gonna be a whole lot of squeeing going on!

We'd also like to thank everyone for their kind purrs for the mom.  She is still whining and moaning, even with us doing the best we can to help her feel better.  Yesterday she went to the doctor's who told her it could be several more weeks before the swelling has gone away.  Boy did THAT make her moan!

We apologize for not visiting, by the time the mom gets home from work, she is in so much pain she doesn't feel like doing much and certainly couldn't think of snappy comments for everyone.  {{eye roll}}  She is still taking care of the ferals, but that will end next week since the lady she is covering for is out of the hospital.  This Sunday she hopes to trap the kitties who have all their God-given parts.  Thankfully The Girl will be coming home to help because the mom doesn't think she could do it on her own in her present condition.  We hope to have some good photos!

We'll be up to visiting soon.  We hope everyone has been well and having fun. Purrs and thanks to you all!

Offline For a Couple Days

Kitties, we are going to be taking a short break.  Someone locked the gate where the feral cats the mom has been taking care of live.  She walked around the fence and found a way back to the cats.  It involved a tricky embankment, brambles, vines and broken bottles.  Then she lost her footing, and fell on a rock.

This is the result.  (The sheets were washed and we were going to help the mom make the bed after she was back from visiting the ferals.  That didn't happen for obvious reasons.)

That big bump isn't her knee!

We are purring for our mom.  Maybe you have a couple purrs to spare?  And yes, she is still feeding the ferals.

Oui Oui's Big Adventure


Did you see this?
Moosey's dad made this cool poster for me!
Do you remember the movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure?
Well, this is Oui Oui's Big Adventure!
Who knows where my adventure will take me . . . 

We kitties have been talking and decided
we are going to chip all our allowances in
and give a full $100 to the PAWS kitties
for the Catification Project, The Habitat for Cats,
because we really want the PAWS kitties to have a great place to hang out.

Thanks, PAWS kitties!
Next year I hope all of you will be celebrating your Gotcha Day too!
Moosey, Gracie & Zoe, I see you in there!

Thanks once again to all the kitties who posted and commented.
You are fabulous!

Now I am off to my big adventure!

(I am going to gloss over that the mom will AGAIN be out of town this weekend, so we are wishing you a great weekend a little early.  Stay safe and enjoy!
Anyone up for a house trashing party?)

Big Results!


Kitties, we want to say a BIG thank you!
We were hoping you would come through for us
to help make the world a little better place
for the kitties at PAWS.
And you did!

There were 30 posts at the Tabby Cat Club!
I can't remember there ever being that many posts before!
Thank you everyone, you took the time out of your day
to write a post to help the less fortunate.
It brings tears to our mom's eyes.

We had 60 comments here.
A couple kitties were late, we know, 
it's hard to blog on the weekends and kitties went out of
their way to do it.
We also know of 4 comments that were left 
elsewhere or people tried to comment and had problems.
So we will count those too, bringing the total to 64.

At $1 a post and 25 cents a comment, that is $46.
As a bonus we are going to count the comments left at our post
at the TCC, there were 32, so that is another $8!
A total of $54!


Best yet, Brian came forward and said he would match what we raised.
We all know how kind Brian is, how caring, how
 involved in doing everything he can 
to insure every kitty has a loving home.
Thank you, Brian, there wouldn't homeless animals
or abuse if everyone was as good as you!

We hope this goes a little way to making the kitties comfortable
in a cage free, stimulating environment
during their "Catification Project",
the Habitat for Cats.
Again, thank you!
Headbonks!

The Day After . . .





What a day our Gotcha Day was!  We want to thank all the kitties who  posted at the Tabby Cat Club and all the ones who commented here to help we raise money to improve the lives of the kitties at PAWS.  Because we wanted to give the maximum time to everyone, we will publish the results tomorrow.  Again, thanks every kitty!  You are pawsome!
