Ten years old!!

It's hard for me to believe that these guys are 10 years old; they certainly don't act like it! They are healthy, full of the zoomies after each meal, curious about almost everything and everyone, sometimes lovey and sometimes quarrelsome with each other. The list goes on!!

Overall, they are a great joy in my home! I can't imagine life without them!!

Here's a link to the first post I read about Grace and her babies: 

And here's a link to the first photos I saw of these guys!!

Look at them now!!

 Audace -- he LOVES to play with boxes and noisy paper!

Ruse -- he LOVES to "help" me when I'm on the computer!!

Almost a decade!

It's hard for me to believe it, but these guys are going to turn 10 in about a month and a half.

Gettin' ready for cooler nights

I got a new small (read: one-cat) pet bed on sale the other day, and Ruse is having a tough time learning how to use it. Grace figured it out right away!

Here's Ruse yesterday morning, waiting for his mama to join him in a snooze! (She never came!!)

 Here he is after he finally figured out she wasn't going to join him!!

And here they all are in their respective snoozin' spots last night ... just as I had hoped. L-R: Grace in the new bed, Ruse as the buffer between her and Audace, and Audace taking up his 2/3rds of the blanket!!

Predictable (to a point)!

Very surprising!

This little scene blew me away last night. Usually Grace won't allow Audace to get anywhere close to her, but last night they were snoozing together! Amazing Grace!!

International Box Day, 2015

Grace doesn't like boxes or shopping bags, but her boys sure do..

Here's a video from when Audace and Ruse were about 5 or 6 months old ... what rowdy kittenz they were!

Grace & Company's 9th Gotcha Day!

Nine years ago today -- what a happy day that was! And these little jewels have not disappointed me -- such good pals and entertainers!
Grace and I on June 6, 2006.

 Audace and Ruse in June, 2006, learning how to jump up on beds and back down again!

Happy 10th birthday to our beautiful Grace!

Our beautiful Grace is 10 years old. I can hardly believe it's been nearly 9 years since she came to live with me. She is such a wonderful companion, and a nice contrast with her rowdy sons!

 This was taken when Grace was a new mommy and was about a year old.

This was taken a couple of years ago, and it's one of my favorite photos of our gorgeous girl. Clearly she is leading a comfy life!!

 Happy HAPPY Birthday to Grace!

As everyone probably knows by now, we took over the blog that ML and Deb began in 2006. If you look at the Archives (at the right, scroll down), it's easy to tell we've really taken it over! We don't post nearly as often anymore, but we still love our bloggie!

Here's Grace, relaxing in one of her favorite spots in the house! 

And here are Ruse and Audace, doing what they do best ... snoozing!!

Happy Blogoversary to us!!

Nine years old!

This is the first post I saw about Audace and Ruse (then named Pete and Foster!):

And after more posts (see below), there was no question that I wanted to give them AND their momma Grace their forever home!

That was nine years ago ... Happy #9 to Audace and Ruse!

How's everyone else doing?

Gotta be touching!

Audace likes to sleep on top of the couch with at least one front leg and paw stretched out ... and it's even better when his brother is there to stay in contact with!

Purring for Flynn

Our beautiful friend across the pond is in need of lots of purrs and prayers right now. 

We hope everyone out there will join us as we pray and paw-pat for his return to excellent health ... and lots more photos of his explorations in that wonderful yard/garden he gets to roam around in!

Our sweet cousin Cabernet, aka Cabbie

Our mom's daughter and her husband took their oldest cat, Cabernet, age 17, to the vet on the 15th and learned he was in acute renal failure. They opted for him to go to The Bridge instead of continuing to fail so rapidly on his own.

We'll all miss you, Cabbie. Such a beautiful and loving guy.

We are lonely!!

We are very sad because our mom has been away from home since mid-June. Her girl has told us why, but we still miss her something fierce! Grace thinks she's stuck here with her two boys, but we all love it when mom's girl comes to feed us and play with us and just keep us company.

Her girl told us that our mom's mom had fallen and broken a very important bone. Our mom has been staying at her brother's while they make the arrangements needed for mom's mom's care and where she will live.

Here are some photos of all of us ... while we wait for our mom to get back home.

So ... we're just waiting ... trying to be patient!
But we're being very well cared for by mom's girl!!

Box Day ... or not!

Out of the 7 kittehz in our family (close and extended), only one seems to like being in a box on a regular basis! Strange behavior!!

Grace prefers a stack of newly washed and dried towels!

Charlotte prefers her kitty afghan!

But Kitty!! Kitty loves to snooze in his box, which is only about 3 feet away from Anne's desk chair. She works at home, so Kitty can be sure of nice, long, uninterrupted snoozes as she works!

Meezers! Show your colors!!

We think that ginger cats and meezers are some of the most beautifully colored kittehz in the world!! I hope everyone else is posting gorgeous photos of themselves to celebrate all our little jewels!

8th Gotcha Day!!

Today is Grace, Audace, and Ruse's 8th Gotcha Day!! I'm so glad we all found each other!!

Here's a link to some fantastic photos (skip the first post!!), taken in the first days and weeks after they moved in with me ... and my grandkids!

Grace and Audace and Ruse get lots of hugs EVERY day! They may or may not welcome them, but they get 'em, nevertheless!! 

However, whenever I'm hugging a cat, there's no one to take a photo or two!!
