CATching Up























Hi Furriends!

We have really missed you! We apologize for our mom being seriously remiss in attending to her duties as our blogging assistant. Although we haven't posted in a while, we do manage to get her to help us visit all of our favorite blogs almost every day...sans the witty and insightful comments. We admit it...we are lurkers. We lurk. We apologize for not leaving comments, and we will try our best to get our assistant to make more time for her duties so we can comment more.  Here's a bit of what we've been up to in the last few weeks.

Exhibit A: Turbo Scratcher with shredded scratchy pad, customized by Ambrose























Exhibit B: The remains of five Bobcat Bungarees (little furry toys that dangle from a long elastic string hung from the top of a door). Ambrose's favorite new game is to see how quickly he can chew through the elastic string. He chewed through these five all in one week.
















Exhibit C: Grrreta totally nipped out on some primo home-grown nip and valerian that fills these cool Disc-O-Nips toys, made by the lovely and talented PM, that we won as a prize in a give-away from Goldie, Banshee, and Shade at Sumac Stories.









































Exhibit D: Our friend, Fin's book. We really enjoyed having our mom read it to us. It is a must-read book for kitties and their staff. We are very proud of Fin for writing such a funny and heartwarming book.





















Also, Skeezix's Food Lady is having a fund raiser for the Susan G. Koman 3-Day for the Cure TM 60 mile walk. Those who donate on the Food Lady's fund raising site between now and noon on July 2nd will be entered in a drawing for some fabulous prizes including a custom mixed-media pet portrait created by the Food Lady herself. You can learn all about it at Skeezix's Scratching Post

So glad to see an update. We are wondering if Ambrose chewed through the comments too and that's why they were missing. But the comments link is back. (Obviously, since we're leaving one.)

WTG Ambrose! We would have chewed through the elastic in no time, too. Why Humans don't use some sort of space age titanium material instead of el cheapo elastic we'll never know.
It's sure fun to eat, though.

We're glad you posted! Come out from the lurker murk for a while.

Hi Grrreta! I enjoyed your update. I understand about lurking, my mom did it too for awhile before she started commenting. Have a grreat weekend.

Sparkle said...

Wow, Ambrose is totally destructive - good work! I too have Fin's book and I will be running a review of it tomorrow (Sunday).

Tell your human to stop slacking off and get working on your blog! I know you visit mine frequently, but I always want to know what's up with your guys!

BeadedTail said...

Thanks for the update! It seems Ambrose needs some tougher toys! Grrreta, be sure you don't OD on the nip!

Danielle said...

Ambrose, you need really, REALLY tuff toys! No wimpy little mice with elastic for you.......

We're glad to have you back! My human and I always love to read your posts. :)

Wow! Ambrose did a good job on the turbo scratcher. Looks like that was some good nip Grrreta.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We haves been wondering where you were!

My!! That Turbo Scratcher has seen better days! Mom has wanted to buy one for us... but has been slow at it!

We won Fin's book! Loved reading it!

Marg said...

Glad to see you back. Grrreta sure looks nipped out. But she also looks very comfy. We really liked Fin's book too. It is very funny.
Hope you have a fine week end.

Hi, there Grrreta and Ambrose! We can totally relate. Mom has not had any time to help us blog either. She has even gotten lax in even posting a photo of us!
