Thankful Thursday

Mom had a good time in Southern California. She got to see old fur friends and celebrate Christmas with her family.

After Christmas, though, she decided to go on an adventure to Death Valley. She had never been there and thought, why not? So off she went where there was intermittent internet and no cell phone signal.
The first morning, she woke up at 4:20 and drove out to Dante's View to see the sun rise.

Boy, did she freeze her fingers off. But, she got some lovely photos.

Badwater Salt lake.

And now, us. Grandma got us a lovely heated cat bed. It's big enough for two, but Chani decided to claim it.
Later in the evening, 9 joined Chani.

We are very thankful that Mom had a wonderful trip and got back safely to us. We are so happy to be home again and to have our lovely new cat bed!

Christmas Photos

Here are some photos from our rather unproductive Christmas photo shot. Chani's got the crazy eyes there, doesn't she?

My costume was a little big and Chani's was a little small.

Mom got into frame waving the toy about. I was posing well here, Chani was not!

Chani kept moving about. But, I was a good boy and kept looking at the toy.

Mom didn't want to use any of these because there was "too much clutter in the background". Well, whose fault was that? Mom wasn't very good about straightening up the living room, was she? hehehe

Hope you enjoyed these photos!

Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!

We just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Mom is going down south again and we are at the Kitty Hotel. Mom hoped to draw a Christmas card, but she now has a cold and has no energy to do this. When she gets back, we'll make sure that she is over her cold and does a proper New Year's card.

Otherwise, we shall put the bitey on her!

So, we hope you all have a safe, warm holiday and we shall see you when we get back!

purrs and nose kisses,
9 and Chani

Mom is tired...

Mom had a good sale this weekend. She said it was decent but as always, not as much as she had hope. Still, the positive side, she won't have to make as much for the next sale. Hopefully, this means she will have more time for us.

Unfortunately, with this extra time, Mom is now contemplating our Christmas photo. She dressed us up, but Chani's costume was far too tight and my costume... well, it fit, but you know how bad I am at posing. Mom called the photo shoot disappointing, though not disastrous. Hehe... She also tried a Santa hat on me... I did not like that at all.

Mom is now muttering that she needs an assistant when trying to take photos of Chani and myself in costume.

Honestly, I don't know why she doesn't just use Photoshop to dress us up!

See! Photoshop, I say!

Mom's busy again...

We are slightly perturbed. Mom has a pottery sale coming up this weekend and is either madly rushing about or too busy to give us the requisite attention we desire. Yes, we understand that it is the biggest sale of the year for her and yes, we understand that she needs to get all this done because she wants more green papers to spend on us and our home. BUT still!!!

Above you see one of the prototype pendants that Mom is now making. She did start out making kitty pendants but they are not yet finished. For some reason, she finished this puppy pendant first. She was inspired by Dash of wee furries fame.

Yes, that is strike two. She might make it up to us with treats and if she shows off the other pendants that she has made, especially the kitty pendants (providing she takes photos of them!)

disgruntledly yours,
9 and Chani

Hi All,
Marlene here. Just to let you know, I am taking down my cafepress site. I really don't have the time to maintain it unfortunately. If you would like one of the designs on a tshirt or bag, I would be glad to make them myself and send them to you.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, no worries!
