Tuesday Tidings

Portrait of Chani peering from the ledge above the screen door and looking into the dining room.

9 sitting in my lap.

9 being silly and checking out a vase lying down on its side in my living room. Yes, I made that vase. I'll take a full length picture one day.

Late addition... Here's a picture of the vase that 9 is checking out. This was taken at my pottery studio. And although I'm not too happy with the shape of the vase, it's different from any other vase I've thrown. Here's my blog entry about it on my clay blog.

With apologies to Blackadder...

"Ooch now, where's me head?"

"Ah! There it be, there it be!

our new friend, Meg!

This past Sunday, Mom had a friend over for dinner. Her name is Meg and Mom met Megwhen Meg was still in middle school. Mom was her pottery teacher. Now, Meg is a beautiful young lady who even though they've known each other for many years, never makes Mom feel old.

Above you can see that Chani made herself quite comfortable on Meg's lap. This was a good thing because our condo gets a bit cold, even with a heater on! Later, Chani curled up on Meg's feet. Chani even did the stretchy front arm thing to show how comfy and relaxed she was.

9 hung out on Meg's lap too. He loved playing with the strings on her sweater. Meg had to hold 9's bottom because he was about ready to fall off at any second!

Before, 9 took a short nap on Meg's lap, but Mom didn't get any pictures of that. Oh well.

We were very happy to have met Meg!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here we are snuggling. Or rather, 9 was cleaning me. Honestly, it seems that he thinks I can't clean myself properly. Oh well. I let him think he's doing me a favor.

But yes, we are thankful for everyone in our lives, Mom, Grandpa, Grandma, our friends who, of course, include all of you out in blogland.

We hope that you are having a wonderful November and that the holiday season treats you well.

Thank you for being our friends!!!

Tuna goodness!


For Chani's birthday, Mom gave us tuna. So delicious. One of Mom's friends said that it was discrimination that we only got treats for my birthday, but got tuna for Chani's.

I think it's discrimination too, but it's ok, because even though Chani ate a lot of her tuna, I finished it all up. hehehe

Nom nom nom...

It was delicious!

Happy Birthday, Chani!

Hi Everyone! I'm 2 today. It's so wonderful living with Mom and 9 (even when he's being a bit of a turd who steals my toys and cleans me whether I want it or not).

Today, we have a special plan. Grandma and Grandpa decided to have an early Thanksgiving, so we are all going to Grandma and Grandpa's house to eat turkey. Well, Mom and our friends, Emma and Aki, will eat turkey. 9 and I will eat something else. Mom says it's special and that we really like it. She also said that she will take pictures too.

So, happy birthday to me! We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Contemplative Chani and a hiding 9

Chani still likes to look out the window. I wonder what she is contemplating.

9 likes to 'hide'. His furry behind is quite adorable and striking with the purple comforter.

Please ignore the dirty laundry. It's laundry day!

Tuesday Time Machine

More scanned pictures of Q. Above is probably the first photo of Q ever. He was such a tiny thing then!

Here I am, holding him. My what huge glasses I had back then. I think this is how I got Q to deal with me hugging him and picking him up all the time. Just couldn't help myself!

Here is Q on my mom's chair when I first brought him to my parents' house. Yes, he rolled on his side and showed off that gorgeous belly a lot!

Another shot of Q's gorgeous belly. He definitely had the belly spot action going there.

Right after I lost Q, I knew I wanted to adopt right away. At the time, I just couldn't deal with having a kitty who looked like Q. I thought it would be too painful. You've seen who I ended up with, and neither 9 nor Chani have belly spots. Strange how now, I miss those spots so much!

Oh well, I am quite happy with the pair I have (though, it's so hard to not scoop up another baby who is all black or has belly spots! But, I think Chani would have issues and I have a hard enough time giving them all the attention they require... yes, I'm trying to justify not getting a new brother or sister for 9 and Chani, but perhaps when my parents settle down and not travel so much hehehe...).
