Pondering



Hi! I'm just thinking about stuff. Like, since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, there should be an abundance of treats. I don't really like turkey, but I love treats. Also, I've been extra hungry lately, so why isn't my food dish always full?

Tomorrow will be a quiet Thanksgiving with just the four of us. What do you have planned?

My Visit to Tabby's Place Continued

Last Saturday, I visited Tabby's Place, a cage-free sanctuary for cats rescued from hopeless situations. If you missed my first post and are interested, click here to see it. I would like to emphasize that at Tabby's Place the kitties are very well cared for and loved. The volunteers and staff are very nice. No kitty is turned away, whether due to age, illness, or handicap. I'm sorry that I don't know everyone's name.


There are several patios where the kitties can safely enjoy the lovely view and fresh air. This is Carrot.

The day was rainy and cool so there weren't many cats on the patios.

The kitties can come and go as they please during the day using enclosed overhead walkways. These ramps go up to little doors at the top to go back inside.

This is Valencia.


This is Anka. He's paraplegic and is from Istanbul, Turkey. He was in a cage because he gets overwhelmed by other cats. They're working with him on that.

Operations:




There is also a quarantine room where kitties that first arrive stay for a while. They have a hospital, hospice, and an area for FIV+ cats.



This is Steven (I think).

This is a video of him being silly.

I decided to pose with this cute gray kitty. I think his name is Greyson. He was very friendly, which may or may not have to do with all the turkey treats I was holding.


This is Olive. Her back legs are paralyzed. She's so cute the way she scoots around on her bum.

This is a very small glimpse of their memorial garden.

I look forward to returning!

My Visit to Tabby's Place



I am taking over Annie's blog to happily report on my visit to Tabby's Place in New Jersey. Tabby's place is a cage-free sanctuary for cats. Their residents primarily come from public shelters where they once were once scheduled for euthanasia. Yesterday, they had a Thanksgiving with Cats event.

These are just some of the things we bought to bring to the kitties (Pierrot not included).

They had containers of turkey and turkey baby food so we could give the kitties treats while on our tour of the facility.

There were treats for the humans too.

It's a wonderful place. There are kitties free roaming everywhere. It's a "cage-free sanctuary."





This is Pixie. Pixie's legs are paralyzed.

They put her in her window box next.

For those of you that know Lola and Lexy, their mommy sponsors Rosie, who is a darling!


This is Leah. She loves the sink!

This was a delightful day. I can't wait to go back! I have more pictures and plan on doing a second post soon.

Meow You're Talking!

We won a give away on Dezi and Raena's blog, Deziz World! It's a Chewy Meow You're Talking Goody Box. We have always wanted to try one of the kitty subscription boxes and now we have that chance! As you can see, the box is chock full of fun goodies.


I was being uncooperative when it came to picture taking. What can I say? I'm a kitty! Therefore, my picture isn't with any of the goodies but is one of my classic poses. I'm no less thankful, however, for all these toys and treats.

Pierrot and I are blessed to have these new toys, catnip and treats!

Hooray for Friday!

Some news from my week:

The mouse seems to have left. The big guy thinks the mouse decided living with two humans and two cats was not a good option for him. 

The lady put flannel sheets on the bed. This makes Pierrot happy. He has been spending his days in the bed hogging up the big sun puddle.

The lady gave us treats last night. It had been a long time! She walks around the living room and I follow her chirping. Then she quickly hides one and I get it. We've been doing it this way for a long time. Pierrot doesn't understand so she just gives his treats to him.

Crazy Cats

Pierrot and Annie have been replaced by these crazies.



Sunday, October 29, 2017

Eeek!



The big guy saw Pierrot stalking the couch so he picked it up to see if there was anything under it and out came a mouse! There may have been a scream, but he said we're not talking about that. Now nobody knows where the mouse is. They're off to the store to buy a humane trap. I heard some complaints about how we have a mouse and two cats. Humph. I never saw a mouse so it's just hearsay.

There's a mouse?

Friendly Fill-Ins


It's Friendly Fill-Ins time, hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15andmeowing. Today, I, Annie, am replying to all the fill-ins.


1. I would like to interview Garfield. What's his favorite snack (after lasagna)? What does he want for Christmas? What's his favorite TV show? How many naps a day does he take?

2. I would like to be interviewed by anybody! It's fun to share tidbits of my life.

3. Halloween night means treats for me...I hope!

4. Once Halloween is over, the lady will eat lots of chocolate.

Thankful Thursday

We had a happy surprise when we came home from our time away. The evening we arrived home, there was a package waiting for us from The Menagerie Mom. Trout Towne Tabbies had won a giveaway on their blog for a magnet of a kitty napping on a laptop and they asked that it be sent to us. That is just so kind of them! On top of that, they also sent us a magnet of Annie and Pierrot (picture below and in our sidebar) and two toys. Annie and Pierrot were pretty stressed coming home after boarding at the vet and really enjoyed relaxing with these nip toys (after doing some bunny kicks, of course). This package came at the perfect time!



We are thankful for the generosity and thoughtfulness of our friends!


We are joining Brian's Home, host of the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
