The Heat is On!

Sebastian is one smart kitty. Whenever he hears the heat turn on, he runs to one of the many heating vents on the floor.  He likes to sit next to it to warm up.  A very smart kitty indeed!  Merry Christmas everyone.  Stay warm!

I Hear the Bell

I bought Dante a new collar.  It's very blingy with rhinestones and a shiny bell on it.  I think it looks pretty darn cute, but Dante hates collars, so here he is giving me the cold shoulder.  He wouldn't even look at the camera. 
Look how mad he looks.  I like that there is a bell on his collar so I can hear when he's coming and going.  He is so not amused.

A Mad Bunny

I visited my friend Ruth last week and she has the sweetest cat name Suki.  Suki is a Manx, and has no tail.  Her tail looks like a bunny tail, and therefore sometimes we call her Bunny as a nickname.  We were eating watermelon as a dessert and Suki was eyeing it.   But we said, no Suki, don't eat the melon.
Suki gave us this mad face when we said, "No Suki, no melon for you." Hahaha, she looks like quite the mad bunny.  I love this face!!  Priceless!

Back in May, I received an email from Innova Natural Pet Food company.  They were interested in sending me a kit that included samples of their cat and dog food to try out.  What's so cool about the Innova dog and cat food is that it is made with all natural ingredients such as real fruits and vegetables including whole carrots and apples, and it also contains protein and whole grains!  The Innova pet food contains no artificial colors or preservatives, meat by-products, fillers, wheat, corn or soy and high-quality protein is always the #1 ingredient. I love the fact that the ingredients are all natural, the product sounds pretty healthy and I was eager to have our cats try some.
When I opened the package, it contained cat treats.  Sebastian was interested in the treats right away.  Here he is anxiously awaiting for me to open the cat treat bag.
He gobbled up the Innova cat treats right out of my hand.  He really liked the taste of the all natural ingredients.
The Innova pet food line also has wet food in addition to the dry food. Our cats love to eat wet food, so I'll have to buy some for them to try.

Couch Potatoes

These are my couch potatoes.  They can literally lay in this same position all day without moving!
Doesn't Sebastian look so comfortable?  No wonder he doesn't want to move!

New Garden Kitty

We have a new visitor to our yard and garden. I spied her sniffing some of the flowers. You see her?
She looks so much like our Yaffa.  Except instead of a grey tuxedo, she has a black one.
I watched her for a few minutes, I saw her investigate the plants, the bbq grill, and grass.  I wanted to go outside to greet her, but I've seen this cat around the neighborhood and she is very skittish.  I hope she has a home and that she isn't a stray.  I hope.

It's My Bag Now!

This weekend, I bought a new hand bag from the Magnes Sisters. I got this bag, and I am so in love with it. Apparently, I'm not the only one who loves the bag... 
Sebastian has also claimed it as his own.  For the last 3 days, he's been sleeping or sitting on my bag.
The leather must be really soft.  He just loves to use it as a pillow to nap on.
He's lucky he is cute and can get away with this!  He is the smartest kitty in the world!

Heat Spell

Last week we had unseasonably warm temperatures.  It soared to 101F.  Too hot too fast is what I say.  You know who's the smartest kitty in the world?  Whenever we have the A/C on, Sebastian finds a spot right in front.  Hahaha.  Talk about keeping cool!

Someone Needs to Go on a Diet

We've been using the "diet" word around our house. I think one of the cats... uh-hum, this one needs diet food. 
Here he is from another angle.  We think he's getting rather large.  I don't like to say the "d" word out loud in front of him, because he hates that word.  But I worry about how large he's getting, he's quite the bruiser now.  Does anyone know of any good tasty diet cat food I should try on Sebastian?  He's very picky with his food, he doesn't like wet foot, only the dry stuff.  Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated!

Synchronized Sleeping

Sebastian and Yaffa are so close. They can be found napping and cuddling every day. They are such peas in a pod that they also do synchronized sleeping. Hahahaha

Garden Kitty is Back

All of last year, when we were out in the garden, we had a little visitor come visit us practically every other day.  We called him Garden Kitty, because he loved to go into the vegetable garden with us and roll around in the beds.  I didn't really want him to be in there, so I would pick him up and scoot him out of the veggie garden and let him play in the yard instead.  He was a good kitty though, he didn't eat any of the veggies or pull them out of the ground.  I was hoping that Garden Kitty is someone's outdoor pet, but he's outside ALL the time, so I fear he's a stray, or someone used to have him as a pet and abandoned him.  He's really friendly and let's you pick him up and pet him.  Look at this face!  I was so happy to see that he survived our harsh winter.  And the first time I saw him this spring, he greeted us with meows and purrs.  When I see him, I give him food and water and he scarfs it up.  He's a hungry little stray.
On this day, he decided to take a nap on our patio.  I noticed that he has a new scar on his forehead.  Poor kitty, he must have gotten into a fight with another animal.
Here he is napping.  I need to give him a new name.  Calling him "garden kitty" is not a good name at all.  What do you think we should name him?
After I was done with my garden chores, I went inside.  Moments later, I noticed he was outside waiting for me by the back door.  This totally breaks my heart.  If I didn't already have 3 cats, I would definitely take this fellow in. However, he's an outdoor cat, and all of my cats are indoor cats.  I  couldn't have one cat be outdoors and the others indoors, for fear that he could bring illnesses and fleas to the others.  We'll do our best to make Garden Kitty's life comfortable by feeding him and giving him an outdoor shelter.  Maybe he'll just be our outdoor only cat, if he doesn't already have an owner in the neighborhood.  There is still a possibility that this is someone's cat, because of how friendly he is.  I hope so!

Friendly Suki

I went to visit my friend Ruth last week, and she has the most adorable cat named Suki. I've written about Suki before, here.  She is so lovable, she sat right next to me on the couch and wanted a backrub. 
She was loving it, rolling back and forth and purring a lot.  See how fast she is moving?  How cute!

My Co-Workers

I was working in the office on the computer and my co-workers wanted to have a meeting.  Here's Yaffa consulting with me on the design issues.
And Sebastian, he likes to direct the projects.  He is very vocal about what he likes and doesn't like.

Don't Touch That!

I had my seed box out, to organize which seeds to plant next. When I wasn't looking, Sebastian Kitty was "investigating" the box. I blurted out, "Don't Touch That!"  And he gave me this look.  If I didn't stop him, there would have been seeds all over the floor.  :)

You Coming With Us?

Last week, we went on vacation, we went to Utah and Las Vegas.  You can read about it here and here.  When Sebastian saw the suitcases come out, he sat next to them for a long time.  I think he wanted to come with us.  Can you hide a cat on a carry-on?  LOL.

I want this tea pot

In between client meetings, I have this problem.  I like to waltz into stores near the offices to window shop.  LOL.  It's a sickness!  I saw this tea pot today, and I totally wanted it.  It's so freaking cute!  Look at that spout!  Hahaha

Plants as Pets?

I walked passed a veterinary office the other day, and they had the cutest window display.  Now that is what I call plants as pets.  Too cute!
I want one of these!

Blogger is taunting me

You know how my last post talked about how we have a mouse in the house.  We'll check out what I got as a word verification when I was posting a comment today.  Sheesh, now I have mice in my blogs!

Friday, February 25, 2011

I'm horrified!

I saw Sebastian hanging out by the kitchen cabinets all day, and had no idea what he was doing.  Until I went to cook lunch, and pulled out some cookware out of the cabinet.  That's when I noticed it.  There were mice poop in my cookware!  Ahhhhhhh!  I have a mouse in the house!  Sebastian must have smelt the little rodent because he would not move from the cabinet area.  Everytime I walked into the kitchen, I kept saying to him, "Did you catch the little mousie yet Sebastian?"  Oh man, I hope he catches it.  I hate hate hate mice!  They scare me.

A Gift from the Farmer

My husband's dad, the Farmer, sent us a package in the mail earlier this week.  I squealed when I saw it!  I've been totally drooling over seedling heating mats, but have not wanted to actually buy one since they can be a bit pricey.  This one can fit 4 large flats on it.  It also works great, within a few days, I noticed the celery started to germinate.  Woot Woot!

The first day that we plugged it in, the following morning I found this little guy hanging out on top of the heat mat.  Smart kitty!  I bet his belly is nice and toasty.

All Boxed Up

Little Dante that rascal, loves to jump in boxes.  Okay, he's ready to be shipped out.  Who wants him?  :)

Don't ya just wanna scratch that belly?

Look at Sebastian's belly.  How can you not want to rub that belly?  I love the way he sleeps.  He's so comfortable with himself.  Speaking of bellies, cousin Minna the farm cat has been licking her belly so much that her fur is falling off and now her belly is all bare with no fur.  Does anyone know what might be the cause of this?  Or does anyone know if there are any pet / cat ointments out there that can prevent her from wanting to lick her belly?  It must be irritating her because she won't stop licking the same area.  Any advice would be helpful.  Thanks!

Keeping Warm

It seems that Sebastian has found another heating vent. He sat here nicely as I took the photo. Usually when he sees the camera, he likes to run the other way. I guess he was nice and warm and did not want to move.

A Warm Gift

My father-in-law gave the hubs and I, a funny thoughtful gift.  His and hers Snuggies.  You see, when he was here helping us with rebuilding our garage, he said our house was a bit chilly.  Gulp.  We're terrible, we're frugal with our heat, we keep the thermostat at 63F.  The hubs and I figure we can put on layers of clothing to keep warm instead of pumping the heat.  It's expensive to heat our old 1901 house since it's so poorly insulated.  Since there's only 2 of us that live here, we are fine with having the thermostat at a lower temperature.  Evenmore so now that we have our very own Snuggie!  Hopefully this will keep us warm.
Yaffa really likes the Snuggie too.  She's been sleeping on it everyday.

Cute as a Button

Sebastian has a lot of cute sleeping positions. I have to try hard not to pick him up and give him a big kiss. Look at that face! Here he is sleeping on the hubs.

Smartest Kitty Ever

It has been so cold lately. We've been getting below freezing temperatures with not an end in sight!  Look how smart this kitty is. He found the warmest seat in the house!

Cousin Minna

When we were up visiting the family farm this winter, we saw cousin Minna.  Minna is such a great cat, she has lots of personality.  She especially loves to play on the clothes hanger rack.  She loves to even sleep up there, how she balances herself on the little bars, I don't know.  I think she loves the new fresh laundry.
