Never far away from me!

While I watch TV in the evenings lately, I have noticed this little change - Ruse joins Grace on the couch, snoozing within five or six feet of where I am!

Where's Audace all this time? When I went looking for him last night, he was not in any of his usual spots. I looked and looked, but didn't notice him until he announced his presence - on top of the kitchen cupboards!! How Mr. Lazer-Eyes gets up or down, I can't figure out, but obviously he is quite successful!

Comparison / Contrast!

Here's an interesting exercise - comparison and contrast between the 4-month-old toy and the brand new toy!



Audace simply prefers to hog both!!

Just like when they were kittens!

Still snoozin' together ... all their little lives!!

Happy #3, boys!!

Today is Happy 3rd Birthday for Audace and Ruse! Actually, we are also getting some extra goodies for Grace; she's the one who did all the work! We also are sending out purrs and prayers of great gratitude for Auntie Deb and Mommy ML -- who rescued Grace and her four babies three years ago (minus four days)!!

Happy Birthday, guys!!

There'll be some presents and lots of playing going on!

Ruse is posing near the supplies I need in order to clean up all the messes he makes when he hacks up a hairball or something. Only Ruse seems to do this, so these Bissell things are really for him!

Ruse is in one of his favorite spots - he can look out into the back yard and make sure there are no trespassers out there! (Not that he'd know what to do if there were!!)

Turkey, turkey, turkey - that's what all three of them like. No chicken. No beef. No fish of any kind. (Kitties after my own heart! I cannot handle the smell or taste of any type of fish!) Only turkey!!

Audace is showing off his handiwork on the less-than-4 month-old S-toy! It was in much better shape, even in February!

Audace also loves his rocker-toy. Best of all is to jump into it and chase twine! The bell and the canvas make wonderful sounds!!

An additional S-toy will be their big present today - one that's not broken (as their first one was) or in shreds (as their second one is). We'll see how long it takes for them (mainly Audace, I'm sure) to rip up the new one!

So ... Happy 3rd Birthday, you guys!

5 days to the birthday!

Five more days until Audace and Ruse turn 3 years old! Here are some more photos from the archives. In the first three photos, they were about four months old, very gangly, but cuter than anything! And always together when they needed naps!

Ruse and Audace (bottom) celebrated their first Christmas!

Getting well

Auntie Deb is back home at Mommy ML and Charley's house, recuperating and resting, we're sure. And we've very sure that Missy, KC, Faith, and the boys are all doing their part to help all the beans in that house get well!!

Get REALLY well soon!

Auntie Deb, Grace & Company's rescuer and foster mom, is in the hospital in Houston, and we're all purring and praying that she gets well soon and back to her normal life. Once she leaves the hospital, she'll stay with KC and the gang in Houston until she is well enough to go back home and be with her own gang, the Taylor CatSSSSS.

We love you, Auntie Deb.

Friday Flashbacks

Here's an idea from our look-alikes in England - Eric and Flynn -- Friday Flashbacks!

Since Audace and Ruse's 3rd birthday is about 1½ weeks away (April 15th), I decided to do a little looking back! Here are a few photos from when they were less than 7 weeks old! Thank you, Auntie Deb, for such great photos!!

And one of the whole crew --
