Cats and the Roomba!

For Christmas, my grandbeans and their folks gave me a Roomba ... you know, one of those little robots that are vacuums! Oh, boy! So here's a little video so you can see how each one reacts.

Did you notice who is NOT anywhere in sight? Hmmm! =)

More orange blankie


Grace and Ruse were giving each other head-baths while cuddling up on the orange blankie yesterday morning. Can you tell? Their heads were moving so fast, they are blurs, even with this very fast camera!

More blurs as they keep cleaning...

And here they are in motion! No more blurry photos!

Fuzzy orange blankie - yummm!

This is the wonderful, fuzzy, soft blankie that Peggy made for Grace & Company, and you can see Audace and Ruse starting to get comfy after their evening romp and play.

Eyes are closing; winding down is happening; sleep is not far off.

And they're done ... they're out!
PS: Grace loves it, too. She just didn't happen to get there soon enough on Christmas Eve!

Precious Ruse!

I caught Ruse up on the climbing toy the other day, and he looked as if he were about to tell me something wonderful. Don't we wish they could truly talk to us?

More Princess fun!

Here she is this morning, looking very innocent!

Hmmm! Is she relaxing? Or planning her next trip up the center of the tree??

Funny Princess!

Remember Princess Meow Meow? She's the Linehans' youngest and funniest cat! She still thinks and plays like a kitten.

Absolutely darling!

And she can take down a Christmas tree faster than we can wrap presents to put under it!!

Strange Thursday

Grace and Ruse (under the table) were checking out the front yard this morning. Oh, wait ...

... there's a HOLE IN MY SCREEN!
Someone was "fighting" with an outdoor kitty last night, obviously, and now there's a HOLE IN MY SCREEN!!

Audace was off in another room when I discovered the HOLE IN MY SCREEN!
He's acting all casual ... he must be the fighter!

We celebrate Veterans Day!

In our family, there are many veterans of the US military forces. We celebrate them and all those who have served over time. It's because of them that we can have blogs and live our lives as we wish. Celebrate Veterans Day!!

Our kitties understand this concept, too.
They love their freedom to live in safe homes.

Doughnut cats!

When they're zonked, they sleep like doughnuts! Funny cats!!

A couple of videos

Grace and Ruse had been playing with the 'nip ball, too, but as soon as the camera came out, they disappeared, for some reason. Audace doesn't pay attention to the camera when he's busy chasing something down!

And this guy outside kept Grace & Company's attention for a while yesterday morning -- in the rain!

All entwined

Audace and Ruse were completely zonked the other afternoon.
They never seemed to notice when I took photos or when I quit!!

Grace, however, was enjoying her own new bed, happy as a kitty can be!

A wonderful visit!

Yesterday, we had a wonderful visit from Auntie Deb, Mommy ML, and Daddy Charley. (Click on their names to see their own kittehs and blogs. Beautiful!) Grace & Company had such fun, discovering new toys and being admired and photographed by TWO cameras, not just one! And look at all the cute things they brought us - play cubes and stuff to chase - and a 'nip ball! Fun, fun, fun!

Grace decided to check it all out ...

... and she laid claim to the green cube which complements her beautiful furs!

And then it was time for a nap!!

This morning, all three are very tuckered out ... lotsa snoozin' going on!

Grace thinks I rudely interrupted her nap with the flashy thing!

Audace can barely keep his eyes open even though he'd like to inspect all the new toys ...

... and commandeer the 'nip ball!

We all had a wonderful time! Come back and visit us soon again. We love seeing you and posing for photos and getting pats and skritches!

Grace & Company have been on their new diet for almost two weeks now. I don't see any difference in Audace or Ruse, but I think Grace's face is a bit thinner. Do you think so? Or is it wishful thinking on my part?? =)

Then this was a little scene I came across this morning. Ruse and Grace had been giving each other head and ear baths, and then they fell asleep, propping each other up! What a hoot!!

Ooops! Grace heard the gardeners start their machinery! Can't be snoozin' when there's snoopervising to do, you know!!

Diet time!

Audace and Ruse had their annual visit to the v-e-t this morning, and ... bad news for them! Audace is a whopping 20#, and Ruse is 15# -- joining Momma Grace at 16# in the tubbiesville category!

So ... they'll be on Science Diet's r/d from now on, mostly the wet food, but with a few of the dry crunchies sprinkled on top. And no more grazing ... this will disturb Grace the most, I'm sure.

I'd rather have healthy li'l jewels, though, and so far they are quite healthy! Well, except for the weight, that is. They also had their claws clipped. They won't let me do this at home, so I take them to the v-e-t -- who had to sedate Audace to get the job done. Do you think I've spoiled them rotten? =)

Livestrong Day 2010

Grace, Audace, and Ruse regularly gather together, usually with me, to practice our LIVESTRONG TOGETHER outlook on living. We purr and pray regularly for our precious Anne and for everyone else who is doing battle with cancer.

Confident and secure ... and funny!

This is what I saw when I came into the great room last night. Funny boy! He rarely does this; Grace is more likely to be on the floor, upside down, all stretched out. It's not a very graceful pose, but it makes me feel good that he's so secure he can relax like this out in the open.

Mo cats! Hungry mo cats!!

This is the scene I found when I first turned lights on in my kitchen this morning. Do you think they were trying to tell me something? Grace had been in my face (woke me up!), purring very loudly. That's how she tells me she's hungry - purring and hovering!

And then this was the mess they left behind!

Balancing act!

I don't know how these cats do it -- in this case, Audace -- snoozing with head almost upside down while balancing on the top of the couch back! Amazing!!

Close-ups =)

I love the close-ups I can get with this camera. I can see every separate whisker!!
