Thankful Thursday in the Garden

Mommy grew a pineapple. Speaking of pineapples we planted a Pineapple Pear, we hope it does good.

The Camilla looked gorgeous this year.

Wemembering Wednesday

Mom got some nice pictures of me sleeping under the Christmas Tree, I had a really good life here with my family.
Which brings me to the lovely Poem the Cozy Cottage shared with us.

I too, would make a will
if I could write.
To some poor, wistful, lonely
stray I leave my happy home.
My dish, my cosy bed
my cushioned chair, my toy.
The well-loved lap
The gently stroking hand
The loving voice
The place I made in someone's heart.
The love, that at the last,
Could help me to a peaceful, painless end
Held in loving arms
If I should die
Oh, do not say:
'No more a pet I'll have
To grieve me by its loss'
Seek out a lonely, unloved cat
And give my place to him.
This is my legacy
The love I leave behind
Tis all I have to give

I am lucky as I had a chance to mentor the strays who have inherited my home...........Yin, Yang & Chimera. See I knew my time here was drawing to a close and the Mom made me promise not to leave Scylla alone, so I arranged for some strays (Yin & Yang, and Chimera)  to enter our lives, and I figured they would need some guidance so I stuck around long enough to mentor them.

Yang is the sole mancat now and the poor guys (Yang, Fenris, Dad and Youngest Bean) are outnumbered by females (Yin, Chimera, Scylla, Tuiren and Mom), but they will muddle through without me evening out the numbers.

And I will be keeping my eyes on everyone, Sammy has shown me how to get day passes to come back for visits and Yang apparently needs a lot of help from me. No sooner do I pack my bags for the Rainbow Bridge then he manages to get hurt and require stitches. Don't worry the young whipper snapper is OK, but really did he have to go and upset Mom so soon?

Two on Tuesday Not Tui

Tuiren said we could do today's post (sorry Walter, she didn't feel like modeling) I am wrestling with my brother Yang.

He is a big strong Mancat.

But I ain't no shrinking violet. I give as good as I get.

Socks shared some of his best moves with me since I am the littlest cat.

Choke holds are good.

Unless Yang gets loose.

Bunny kicks sometimes work.

OK, I surrender, this is so embarrassing. ~Chimera, reporting for ATCAD

Mancat Monday with Sisters 3

This is a wayback post too. When the kayaks first came to live here we were all very curious about them.

The got lots of sniffing.

We were very puzzled about what they cold be.

I bravely hopped up on top of Mommy's and discovered. They are great big cat beds.

I debated about sharing the news with my sisters but I eventually did. They are also wonderful for games of hide and seek. ~Yang, reporting for ATCAD

Stunning Sunday Selfie

This post was originally scheduled for May 12, because of the sad news we had to share we rescheduled it for today..................


 Some of you probably wonder what I do outside.

 I scratch my claws on trees and I climb them.

 I read the peemail that has been left. This is Fenris' favorite peeing tree.

 I was told I had to do a selfie so  here goes. Tubs make good spots for selfies as you have a sorta white background.

 As you can see I am whiter than the tub.

 I want to go for a motorcycle ride, but I can't find a helmet my size.

 Do you know of a place that makes very small cat motorcycle helmets?

 When I go inside I playing thundering herds of elephants with the other cats except Socks. He doesn't feel like playing anymore. This makes me sad.

But he still comes outside and scratches his claws on trees that makes me happy. ~Chimera, reporting for ATCAD

PeeS: I wrote this before Socks went away March 11th and Mommy said I could leave it the way it was that all of you would understand. I miss my brother a lot.





Caturday Art

Mom did a pencil sketch of me and Chimera.

Mom hates it when pictures give us laser eyes.

She fixed my eyes with Neon Glo GREEN since yesterday was St. Paddy's Day.

A pencil sketch of me and Yin.

Infared, Yikes people might get me and Yin confused. I am the one with the googles.

Cement, boy did it make the carpet look weird, but we think youngest boy would approve of the black and gray theme.

Next I helped Mommy color some mermaids.

PeeS: Some of you know I gotted wounded Monday. I am OK but I had to have stitches in both my hind legs and spend the night at the vets. I will tell you all about it when I am not so traumatized.
