Finding the cool spots!

Here's how Grace keeps cool on these hot days, even though our a/c is on 24/7. Where she's near me in the office (as in these shots) or in the TV room, she likes to be in the center of the floor where she can stretch out. And the best spots of all are always directly under a ceiling fan! Smart girl!!

Bath time!

For the first time the other evening, I saw Ruse giving Audace a bath!
Gotta get that neck clean, you know!

And behind the ears ... that's important, too!

Beautiful new blankie!

Our Aunties - ML and Deb - asked Peggy to perform her magic and create a furry blankie for Grace & Company. This beautiful blankie came in the mail on Wednesday, and you can see all three of my jewels checking it out - and the toys that came with it! The blankie is absolutely gorgeous, and the jingly toys are great fun, too!

All three have to find out what was in that box.

Ruse is checking out one of the neat-o toys!

Ruse is snuggling in. =)

Grace gets it! How nice to snuggle and stretch and snooze on this yummy blankie!

Wordy Wednesday

Who's that lump under the sheet?

Oh, my goodness! It's Audace, pretending to be a lump under the sheet! Turns out, it's a good snoozin' spot!

Here's Audace in another of his fave spots for relaxing if he wants solitude. I think he's thinking about dinner!

Grace seems to be reading my mail. I wonder if she really can. Do you think she's read any of Shirley Rousseau Murphy's books? Is she a fan of Joe Grey? Hmmm!

Ruse has the cutest toes and curled-up tail. He had just finished stretching and rolling over and was just relaxing back into sleep!

Princess goes hunting!

Princess, one of my daughter's cats, will play with just about anything. She is truly the eternal kitten! Here she is "helping" with the ironing - and hunting lizards at the same time. She, of course, has no clue that she is inside the glass and the lizards are outside, but that doesn't stop her!

Grace & Company's 4th Gotcha Day!

Oh, how we love to celebrate this day!

On June 6, 2006, Deb and her daughters drove from Houston to my house and brought these little lovelies ~~> GOTCHA DAY PHOTOS. What a marvelous and exciting day that was - and we've had great fun with all three of these little jewels ever since!

So here they all are - separately and together - in no particular order!

Happy #5, Grace!!


Go here --> MOMMA GRACE -- to find the link to the first photos I ever saw of Grace. She was less than a year old when she had her litter of four. (Somebody had robbed a cradle, huh?) Anyway, it's not hard to figure out why she caught my attention, right? =)

Here she is at age 5, trying to figure out if she wants to go into the "cave" created when this recliner's footrest was raised! She started in, but then backed out in a hurry. I have no idea what she thinks is in there!!

And here's Grace, guarding her favorite scratcher. That built-in ball and circle-track is fun. She likes the big rectangular scratchers, too, but the round scratcher is the best!

Here's to a super wonderful birthday for you, my lovely Grace! ♥
