Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, we wanted to share some of the lovely flowers we had before the frost got them.

The Sniffe Roses and Candy Corn Cuphea (Tamir) are blooming.

The Mums are looking lovely.

The Candlebush is providing a banquet for the birds.

And the Goldenrods and the Red Hibiscus look Great together. We hopes you enjoyed our flowers and that you are having a wonderful day with family and friends. Love, ATCAD aka Tuiren, Socks, Scylla, Fenris & Mom Alasandra

"My name is Patches, and I'm a 9-year-old male domestic long hair. My best friend, Oscar, and I were adopted several years ago but were recently returned because our adopter had a baby and no longer wanted us. We're now on the lookout for our forever home, where we'll never been given up again. I'm an affectionate boy, but I'm not fond of the little ones, so I'll need a home without children. I'm also declawed on all four paws, and I'm on a special diet for urinary tract infections. Because Oscar and I have been together so long, we must be adopted together. Do you have room in your heart and home for us? Please email hopeforanimals@bellsouth.net."


10 Reasons Senior Cats Rule
  1. When senior cats are adopted, they seem to understand that they’ve been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it.
  2. A senior cat’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
  3. You can teach an old cat new tricks (I do every day with my own cats!): Senior cats have the attention span and impulse control that makes them easier to train than their youthful counterparts.
  4. A senior cat may very well already know basic household etiquette (like not attacking your feet at night) anyway!
  5. In particular, senior cats are often already litter trained and are less likely to “forget” where the box is.
  6. A senior cat won’t grow any larger, so you’ll know exactly how much cat you’re getting.
  7. Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats, who may get into mischief because they’re bored.
  8. Speaking of relaxing, senior cats make great napping buddies.
  9. Senior cats often know that scratching posts (not furniture) are for scratching and toys (not hands or feet) are for biting.
  10. Senior cats are some of the hardest to find homes for — so when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life.

Tuiren Tuesday

The Greenhouse still isn't fixed, as soon as it is Mommy will have to move the plants out of the garage into the greenhouse.

We lost several of our plants because of the unseasonably cold weather we have been having. The Confederate Rose is pretty much finished for the year, which is a shame. It had tons of buds on it that never got the chance to flower, the hydrangeas are finished too.

I am rather sads about this.

On the plus side I have lots of leaves to play with.

On the minus side our green grass is going away.

I really wish we had, had a nice FALL, the weather was very naughty to skip Fall and go directly to WINTER.

A nice roll should cheer me up.

And I'll be even happier when Daddy gets the Greenhouse put back together.

He made a mess in our yard.

OK, I has shopping to do @ Wildcat Woods Vintage Treasures Auction for Georgie, so it's time for me to go. The auction ends December 7th. I did let Mommy take lots of pictures, before I left for my shopping spree,  so I hopes everyone is happy with me. ~Tuiren, reporting for ATCAD

Meowy Monday with Scylla

We don't have Fall Foliage like our friends in the Northeast do but our Popcorn Tree is pretty colorful.
Besides having pretty flowers the Candy Corn Cuphea has interesting leaves, unfortunately we had a heavy frost that killed it all. It usually blooms until Christmas.

These Mums are really pretty, but the frost got them too.

Roses are always nice, and they survived the frost.

This is a really weird looking bug on the Goldenrod, and I am happy to say the Goldenrod survived the frost too.

Does anyone know what it is?

The Cape Honeysuckle was blooming really purrty, don't worry Mommy put it in the Garage until the Greenhouse is finished.

I got plumb tuckered out watching her carry all the plants to the Garage.

I tried to tell her some of them were too heavy to pick up but she didn't listen to me.

Then I had to listen to her bitch moan and groan about her backache.

Honestly do you ever hear cats complaining about backaches. Nope, cause we have the good sense to have our humans cart the heavy stuff around. Maybe I should get Mommy a human to cart stuff around for her, then she could just worry about carrying ME and my stuffs around.

And Mommy finished another book. I enjoys when she reads cause I can sit in her lap. Most of the time the books are totally uninteresting no cats or dogs in them and I don't meow about them, but the latest F-word (Mommy said I couldn't say the word on our bloggie) Flowers book Deadline, was about a dognapping ring, so I thought it was pretty interesting. The mutts were going to be sold to bunchers who would sell them to medical research labs (HISS), but luckily Virgil Flowers with some help rescued them all and wound up with a dog of his own. We has our paws crossed that from now on F-word Fido will ride along on Virgil's cases. After all he takes his boat to work with him, so why not his dog too.  You can read Mommy's review at her blog Alasandra's Place. ~Scylla, musing for ATCAD

Scylla Sunday

I am coming!!!!!! Mommy gives me my two measly treats down at the Hummingbird Cottage.

We have been having cooler than normal temperatures for November, it's getting down to 32 at night, but so far no frost so the plants are doing OK.

Me and Mommy not so much we are freezing.

Thank CAT for electric blankets.

Like everyone else I had a modeling session. We thinks I did a good job modeling.

And unlike the rest of the family I didn't complain about it.

Purple is my favorite color so I was happy the Ironweed got included in my portrait.

And me and Mommy thinks I have lost some more weight.

I'll have to go back to the vet soon and get weighed to find out for sure, but we thinks my face looks thinner.

~Scylla, happily modeling for ATCAD

PeeS: Be sure to check out Wildcat Woods Vintage Treasures Auction for Georgie it ends December 7th.


Turkeys have feather(s), but we also thinks the leaves have a feathery look about them. Hope you like our Mommy's attempt at making a scrapbook page.~ATCAD

Fenris Friday

Daddy is too busy to play ball with me. This makes me very sad.

When he went to put the sides back on the Greenhouse, he discovered a lot of the wood had rotted and had to be replaced. Including the roof.

So Daddy practically had to rebuild the Greenhouse. New wood is wood colored, the old wood is painted white. Daddy will not have time to paint this year.

And we are having colder than average temperatures for November. It got down to 28 degrees here Monday night. It is much to cold for this time of year. Mommy had to put the potted plants in the Garage as the Greenhouse is not put back together. Daddy didn't get through before he had to go back to work Monday. We has our paws crossed he is able to finish it this weekend. ~Fenris, barking for ATCAD
