Rolling in the sand

Hello everybody. We are all doing fine here. We are having unseasonably warm weather in Louisiana. Madness and Bubbles like to roll outside in the sand every day and get themselves full of dust! Madness is just so cute. Just look at the bit of white fluff on her tummy!

Bubbles is also just chilling out and enjoying the weather. He really doesn't like cold weather and he HATES rain. I don't know how he survived so long outside.

Mrs. B is relaxing in her cat-cup and pretending that it is indeed cold. Just look how cozy she looks. And it's 80 degrees!

Well, as you can see, we are all doing fine. Since I have a few days off from work around Christmas, I'll try to post more around that time.

I'm not Dead

Hello internets. I hope these pictures did not scare you friends. I'm not dead. Just relaxing. I'm sorry we don't blog much anymore. It's all Moms fault, so berate her.

We are all doing fine. And we still DO read your blogs. Mom is just very busy and she doesn't have time to comment and blog much. I'm having lost of fun and am a very happy teencat at the moment. I get to go out, but I have to wear a noose with Moms phone number on it. I don't know why, cause as soon as Mom calls I come chirping and running to her. Me and Bubbles go hunting every night. I've only caught one mouse (plenty of lizzies thought), but Bubbles catches a mouse or rat nearly every night. Me and Bubbles are buddies now.

OK, internets, I'm going to try to get Mom to let us blog a little bit more often. Love you all!

It's my Birthday!

Hello all. It's me Madness. And today I'm one whole year old! Can you believe that! And so is my brother Dobby!

OK, so we don't know exactly what day we were born, but the vet said it was one year ago today, so I'm sticking to my story.

Well, we are still all doing well. Me and Bubbles like hanging our in the courtyard and I hide under this big plant and plan attacks on all the lizzies that live around there. Bubbles catches lots of mice and sometimes he even lets me play with them. Mrs. B is also fine. She stays inside and plans attacks on my food bowl.

Well, it was nice to chat with you all again. We wish Mom would update more often, but she is just too lazy (oh sorry "busy"). Bye for now.

We are still here

Mom here. I'm so sorry that I'm so hopeless with blogging lately. I'm in Scottsdale, AZ at the moment at a scientific conference. I'll be back home with The 2Bs and Madness on Friday evening. I'll be home for one week and then leave for another conference in San Diego the next week. So things are a little crazy at the moment.
Madness and the 2 Bs are doing fine. Madness is growing so fast, she is nearly as big as Bubbles! And I'm sure Mrs. B is glad I'm away, cause she gets more food when I'm gone.
Well, that's it for now. Bye, bye from Arizona.

Monkey Madness

Look at me! I'm high in the tree! Oh, I love to climb trees. This is the highest I've ever been. Mom says she 's not climbing a tree to get me out if i get stuck. Ffffhhhttttt! I'm a cat, I won't get stuck.

In any case, if by some miracle I do get stuck, I'm sure Mom will get me out. I hope.

Still here

Madness here: Yes, blogging friends we are still here. Mom is busy with some work stuff, she says, so we don't get much time to blog. And yes, I call her "Mom" now. So sue me!

We are doing very well. I get to go outside every evening! Mom brings her laptop outside, "to keep an eye on me". I don't know why. I'm being a very good girl! I just climb trees and catch little animals. Yesterday I caught a froggie! And the day before a lizzie! I gave them to Mom, but she did not seem happy about it. Beans are strange.

Bubbles plays with me and we have lots of fun outside. Mrs. B is doing fine, still cranky. I think it has something to do with the D_I_E_T. I don't understand this diet thing. She is not getting any thinner. Just crankier!

OK, now Mom says she has to work again. *sigh* We just wanted to let you all know we are fine. We still read your blogs, but don't get time to comment. I think I don't like this "work" thing Mom keeps doing on the computer. It's just not fair! I want my own laptop!

Gizzy Quilt

Bubbles here. My Bizzy for Gizzy Quilt arrived from our good friend Millie. Oh, I can smell Millie and Jasmine! And maybe even a little whiff of sweet Gizzy

Oh, this feels very nice. Just look at that perfect stitching.

Now for my bath before bed time. This quilt is great for baths.

Moooooommmm. Some privacy please.

Madness: My turn, my turn. Oh, I smell Millie.

Wow, how did Millie's mom get all these little parts to stick together?

Hmm, it's very comfy and feels good on my tummy.

Thanks a lot Millie and Mom Lynne!

Mom here: I put the quilt on the chair where Bubbles likes to sleep at night, and he slept on it all night. The quilt is gorgeous and we LOVE it. Thanks a lot!

Seven Random Facts

Bubbles was tagged by Millie and Madness by Eric and Flynn to give seven random facts about themselves.

Here are the rules. Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Seven Random Facts About Bubbles:
1. I have 3 names. At first Mom called me Kathmandu. That is still on my records at the vet. But then she found out that some people around the apartment that knew me before she took me in, called me Cid, so she decided Cid was a good name for me. But for some reason, out of the blue, she just stated calling me Bubbles.
2. I am a fierce fighting cat and I fight with all the stray cats around here.
3. I am extremely gentle with people. I will try to get away from them, but if they pick me up, I will NEVER even try to scratch and bite them. Even if they do terrible things to me at the vet, I do not try to hurt them.
4. If I'm bored in the evening, I sit in the courtyard and breaw-breaw for Mom to come down and play with me. Usually she does, unless she is watching that stupid CSI.
5. I'm a very picky eater. I don't like wet food, unless it is Sheba and only a little bit at a time.
6. Every morning I wake up Mom by poking my paw into her eye.
7. Me and my Mom have a specialy connection and I love her more than anything.

Seven Random Facts About Madness:
1. A part of my tail is missing. Nobody knows where it went.
2. Whenever I do something naughty, like chew the Freak's bed or pounce Bubbles, I plop on my back and show them my tummy. This makes it impossible for them to ever get angry with me. This does not work on Mrs. B.
3. I love to play with tall pieces of grass that the Freak brings in the house specially for this purpose.
4. I am obsessed with Bubbles. I have to follow him everywhere and if possible try to eat his food. Usually the Freak stops me from eating his food though.
5. When I get the crazies (which happens at least once a day) I run around growling at myself.
6. My rolemodel on the blogoshere is Grr. I want to be just like her when I grow up.
7. I LOVE to eat bugs.

We tag:
1. Bathsheba
2. Cheeto
3. Rascal
4. Merlin & Dobby
5. Grr
6. Fat Eric
7. Speedy

Formerly Feral Bubbles

Ahh, Bubbles. He is so cute, but sometimes he likes to make trouble. Here he is watching his domain from the hood of a truck. This is not my truck. In fact, it belongs to John's parents. I removed him from his comfy perch after I took the picture, because I don't want him to leave pawprints everywhere and then we get into trouble.

A couple of years ago, we had a neighbor with a convertible Mecedes Benz with a soft-top. Bubbles thought this was the perfect cat-hammock, especially made just for him. Before I went to bed at night I would sneak outside with a lint-roller to remove all the tell-"tail" hair right in the middle of the roof. *sigh* The things we do for our cats!

Morning Crazies

This is what is going on right now in our living room. Madness has the crazies. Bubbles doesn't know whether to play or run away. Even Mrs. B played a little, but I wasn't quick enough to capture that miracle.

Formerly Feral Bubbles

Yes, his Mommy thinks he is just the cutest, sweetest kitty ever!

Scary Thursday

Madness here. Friends I'm lucky to be alive to blog today. The most horrible thing happened yesterday. This might be too scary for the real little ones, so maybe you want to stop them reading right now.

So, yesterday I was downstairs in the courtyard with Freak and Bubbles. It was totally OK, cause Freak said it was outside time and she was right there with us. Then suddenly I saw the most horrible monster running towards us! I ran back home as quick as a little girl cat can. (That means very, very fast.) But Freak and Bubbles did not make it! I heard Freak make weird noises. It sounded like laughing, but surely it was screams of terror. And when I looked into the courtyard from the safety of the window I saw that she was being eaten by the horrible monster! And Bubbles was right there - frozen in fear.

After what seemed like a very long time, the horrible monster left and somehow the freak survived. (I told you there was something weird about her.) Even Bubbles came through the ordeal without a scratch. I went out and asked why did they not run away? They laughed and said that it was only Gracie and she was a friendly woofie. I ask you: “Does this look like a friendly woofie?” Just look at those murderous brown eyes and ravenous mouth!

Bubbles said that it’s good to be careful around woofies, ‘cause some of them are not nice to cats, but that Gracie is a sweet doggie. But I think this is just another plan from Bubbles to get rid of me! Well Bubbles, I’m too smart for that! I’m not going near that monster.

Tuxie Tuesday

Here is Mrs. B, looking lovely as usual. She is watching Bubbles and Madness in the courtyard. She's thinking - Mfffffftt! Kids!

Oh, if you want to see more pictures of the farm in Africa go here. I also put a little badge in the sidebar to this link. These are just general pictures, no cats.

Outside is Cool!

Madness here. I love "Outside". There are all kinds of interesting thingies out there. And I can pretend that I'm a real jungle cat.

I even climbed a tree yesterday. But the Freak came and grabbed me. Grrffftt!

Don't worry friends, I'm being supervised. Not only by the Freak, but also by Bubbles. If you look closely at this picture, you can see that even our friend John is supervising through the window.

And look what Bubbles did! So rude. I think he is the one that needs to be supervised.

Sometimes I sneak outside and then the Freak gets angry and makes it rain on me. She says that it is not Outside-time now. I think it sould be outside-time all the time! I sure hope I will learn when is outside-time soon, so it can stop raining on me!

Still Sad

Bubbles is still sad about his good friend Gizzy that went to the Bridge. Farewell Gizster.
