We are loved!

We can talk about this now -- a bit over a month after Hurricane Harvey stalled over the Houston area. We are very grateful that our house didn't flood, but our food lady didn't want to take chances, as the water in the street kept rising up our front yard and the driveway. 

Our food lady decided to move us all to her daughter's family's house. Their street was flooding, too, but since they have a two-story house, we could all move upstairs if we needed to. The three of us were ensconced in their guest bedroom upstairs, and while it was NOT fun for all three of us to be stuck in one room together (and with our food lady overnight), we were safe. Very unhappy, but safe!

Below are two photos that show how we were moved to the two-story house. In the first photo, you can see our food lady's grandson (at the right) who is tall enough and strong enough to carry Audace in his carrier above the water, which was about two feet deeper at the previous intersection! Our food lady was in the pink jacket. 


Then (second photo) the nice, tall grandson and his dad went back to get Grace and Ruse. You can also see our food lady's grandgirl who had guarded us until her dad and brother could go back to get us.

Another Gotcha Day - and we're all still here!

We have now set ourselves a record! Three kittehz -- mama and sons -- who have all lived in the same house with the same food lady for 11 years. Well, this may not seem like a record to others who have lived longer, but it's a first for all of us! Our food lady has had only two other kittehz who had longer lives: Angel Pluto and Angel Indy. But they all moved from one house to another with her, and other almost-siblings were in and out of their lives. 


Our interview with Mousebreath in 2012 still tells our gotcha story best!!

Snoozin'

Usually, Grace's boys snooze near each other, especially when it's cooler in this house than what they're used to. 




Every once in a while, though, they decide to get really cozy!!

10th Gotcha Day!

I love this day ... just about the best day of the whole year! Today is the TENTH anniversary of the day Deb and ML brought Grace and Pete and Foster (now Audace and Ruse) to me. We had such fun!!

Kitty went to the Bridge


We lost Kitty today. He was suffering from kidney failure for about the past two months, but yesterday it was very clear that he was failing fast. This morning, he was worse, so my daughter and granddaughter took him to the vet's office to be helped to the Bridge. 

He had a wonderful life with my daughter and family, and we're all grateful for that. He's now joining Angels Cabernet, Indy, and Pluto.

Happy birthday to Grace!


Happy HAPPY Birthday to my beautiful Grace!
She's 11 years young, and she grows more precious to me every day.

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: http://graceandkittens.blogspot.com/2006/05/momma-grace-and-company.html 

And here's a link to the first photos I saw of these guys!! http://graceandkittens.blogspot.com/2006/05/pete-foster-we-need-homes.html

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!!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THESE GUYS!

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.

Amazing!!

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!

Blogoversary!

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!
