Cats on Tuesday

Cats on Tuesday is a bunch of cat lovers who write about their cats once a week on Tuesday. For more cat tales, go here:
Below: Meet my princess, Snowflake. I got her and Minnie from the shelter back in February, the day after putting my 20 year-old to sleep. Don't let her sweet face fool you; she is evil toward her brothers, chasing them and intimidating them. Here she is with a toy mouse she NEVER plays with (except for Momma's picture).

This is where she sleeps at night; she has her side and I have mine. is my man Miles. He is 12; we've had him for exactly 7 years. Someone from church had a baby she named Miles, and she was not sure how the feline Miles would fit with a baby. He is so laid-back, he would have done fine. This is his recliner.

Lovey is my newest baby. I received him a little over a week ago from a family who will be moving to Australia. He is a laid back cat, but he is standing his own ground with the others. He has taken a liking to my garden tub.

His favorite place to be is on this stool at the kitchen island.

Here he is trying to figure out the dog.

Well, Minnie will be mad because I did not showcase her this week, but she will be ok.

This is my heirloom for today's Show and Tell. I love antiques. My parents bought it for me about 22 years ago, after I moved out on my own.It has a closet on the right, four drawers, and a small hideaway on the upper left. If you look real close, you can see my cat Miles' reflection in the mirror.

Ok, as long as Snowflake, a.k.a, the Evil One, stays on her end of the couch, I'm fine.

Oh, Mother, I can't reach the mouse!!! Bring the computer down closer please. Uh, I want that chair, Minnie! I'm the man of the house.

It's sissy time now~~~~~~~~~~~Girls rule! Boys drool!

I'm just chillin'============ Momma's childhood rocker is perfect for me.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my cat pictures. They are my furry little babies, so I love to show them off.

Show and Tell Friday

When I was 11.5 my brother and his new wife left for California and an Air Force career (following in Dad's footsteps). At their going-away party they gave me this music box. That was September, 1974--35 years ago, and I remember it like yesterday.

Look Mom---No hands

Matthew, give me that cord thingy.

I got it!

This is fun.

Enough of this now~

Ok. I'm bored; next game please.

Snowflake loves my son's earphones for his IPOD. She is also obsessed with pens/pencils and will steal them from the counter to play with on the floor.
