Mr. DeVille, I am ready for some tummy rubs here.

Mom is in love with my orangey bits. Lately, she can't help but pick me up and snuggle me. I have been voicing my disapproval quite loudly, but she ignores my complaints. Oh well, I guess it is just something princesses like me must deal with.

Sheamus Popoki

Hi All!

Mom is letting me speak today. As you can see, I have a truly hard life here. I eat. I sleep. I play with my brother. Life is good.

Some of you may wonder how I got my name. Mom explained that I am Sheamus Popoki Aloysius Mango or Spam for short. Now, "Sheamus" is not a traditional spelling. So how did Mom come up with it?

Well, Mom is kind of a dork... She watches professional wrestling, or did or on occasion she watches. Aside from having a thing for red heads, she also has a thing for accents. A while ago, she decided that she wanted to have a ginger cat to name after the wrestler you see below.

Yes, this wrestler's stage name is Sheamus and he is Irish. Although he's pretty fierce during matches, he seems like a really nice, funny guy during interviews. And so, when Mom decided to adopt me, she already knew what she would name me. And let me tell you, I've got a few wrestling moves that would put this guy to shame! You should see me wrestle with 9. I tell you, I would be the world champion of cat wrestlers in no time! At least that is what I tell myself when I remember. Tee hee...

Mom keeps saying that I'm kind of dim. I'm not sure what she means by that, but she also says I'm an absolute sweetie peetie and she'll take dim but sweet anytime!

So there you have it. The origin of my name.

Thank you for reading!

I found some photos of darling Chani-chan!

Chani loves to claim my spot once I vacate it or when I am not home. It's her 'throne' so to speak.

And here she is under the reading lamp. Such a drama princess. And this time, it is only the lighting. Well, she's got drama on her mind, always does. She loves to be petted on her own terms and complains whenever I pick her up and cuddle her. With her lovely colors and chunkiness, who could resist giving her some snuggles? I sure can't.

Since the boys are so buddy buddy, Chani is left on her own for the most part. She does like to play with 9 on occasion and she still expects to be cleaned when she is sleepy and one of the boys comes around her.

Chani is definitely the Princess here in this household.

Tuesday Tidings

Dear Friends, I have been very remiss in blogging since St. Patrick's Day and I apologize. Life has been very hectic. I visited LA a few weekends ago for a bridal shower and a bachelorette party.

After that, I was busy with a friend's baby's first birthday party, an early Easter party AND a dinner party. Yes, parties all around. For a hermit like me, it's quite a lot of socializing compressed into a small amount of time.

Plus, I've been painting like mad getting ready for a pottery sale at the end of April.

AND I am a horrible cat mommy! I totally missed 9 and Chani's Gotcha Day (to be honest, my memory is getting fuzzy on the exact date even though I have a memory trick to remember... 2 weeks exactly after I lost Q, I got 9 and Chani... But then I forget if it was 2/21 that I lost Q or 2/28 and I know I did a blog post and this leap year did not help at all!) Ugh. Still, rest assured, I am giving all 3 of my babies lots and lots of love.

However, I know you're not here to read about my life. So onto kitty news.

9 and Chani visited Dr. S., their V-E-T. I am happy to report that both are healthy. 9 weighs in at a nice 11 lbs. He is holding steady there. Chani, my Princess Pretty Pants, shall now be known as Princess Chunky Pants as she weighs more than 9 now... 11.4 lbs! Wow, that tapeworm was really holding back her weight hehe.

9 was very squirmy while getting his temperature taken, but was very friendly to the vet tech and Dr. S. Once his exam was done, he rubbed against their legs and just wanted love. So very different from Q who came before. Q terrorized the vet techs there. Hehe... I'm still absurdly proud of him for that.

Chani was very good while getting her temperature taken. She only reacted with a swift head turn and then flattened ears while getting her distemper vaccination. But, no drama except for the severe tongue lashing I received while driving them in their carriers to vet office.

Look at that darling pink nose...

Once Chani was at the office, she refused to come out of her carrier. I had to drag her out. After her weigh in and temperature taking, she went back into her carrier and crawled under her bed. Dr. S. remarked that she couldn't see Chani because of this... giggle giggle.

9 was my brave explorer who when the appointment was over, decided to enter his carrier all on his own. What a good boy!

Later, 9 got some comforting snuggles from little brother, Sheamus. The boys really love each other. They sleep together, play together and are just so cuddly! I know Chani gets left out, but sometimes, I think she's rather glad to be left alone. And when she wants attention from the boys, she play attacks to get some shenanagins going.

I really need to get more pictures of her.

Finally, I went to a friend's house this past Sunday, and in a potted plant were 3 tiny hatchlings. At one point, when we went to look at them and moved the leaf, all 3 woke up and their mouths were wide open. Unfortunately, I missed the shot. I was using my camera phone and it doesn't always react quickly.

I'm still pretty busy these days. But, if I get myself organized enough, I'll try to set up some posts.

Many apologies again!
