A New Home for Piggy

A friend of Crazy Lady's at work had an interesting occurrence last week. A kitten followed her dog, Maggie, home and decided to take up residence with them.

She must have really liked Maggie a lot.

The 4 year old bean, whose name is MacKenzie, seems taken with the kitten. She named the kitten - Piggy!!! Don't ask us why.

So, Piggy was fed. . . . . . .

. . . . . .and fed!

She was given some new toys. . . . . . . .

. . .and Maggie is still getting used to having Piggy around.

Trixie's Real Name

Trixie: Well, two years ago this month, when Crazy Lady found me in a parking lot down South of Atlanta in a sorta rough neighborhood, she had been reading a Faith Paige Victorian mystery which featured Beatrix Potter.
So, she scooped me up, took me by her V.E.T. before taking me home to Thomas and Phoebe and announced that my name was Beatrix. They wrote in my file that my name was Beatrix. About 5 minutes after reaching my furr-ever home, Crazy Lady, D.C. and The Big Boy (who came home after college and won't go away!) decided that I was definitely more of a Trixie and that's all I've been called since then.
However, whenever I go to the V.E.T., they always call me Beatrix and that confuses me.
Maybe we should just tell them that I'm not a very Beatrix kind of cat!!!!

Phoebe Phriday

Phoebe: Well, I'm looking for a little quality time with Crazy Lady beating on my butt.

I love doing this!!!!

But, that darn Trixie thinks she needs to snoopervise!

So, maybe if I turn my back, she'll go away.

Are you believing this??? Dixie showed up while I had my back turned.

Now, I have to put up with 2 pesky cats!!

I'll turn my back one more time and see if they disappear.

Oh, my gosh!!! I'm magical!! It really worked!!

Tommy Tuesday

Thomas: I have ADD. Yes, Attention Deficit Disorder.

It appears that there is definitely a deficit in the amount of attention I get around here! When you live with two Divas like I do, you just never get the attention you deserve.

Can I please get some attention???
Trixie: That's not true, Tom!! I give you attention all the time. In fact, when I was just a little kitteh you told me to stop following you around all the time!

Phoebe: Like you told me not long ago. . .just release it to the Universe, Tom!!! Everytime I turn around, you have your butt in Crazy Lady's face wanting to get beat on.
And, besides, why pay attention to you when they can concentrate on this beautiful face???
Crazy Lady steps in: Okay, cats!!! You all have special qualities and you all deserve attention. Tom, Phoebe and Trixie - each one of you is special in your own way and we love you all!!! You should be thankful that you all get as much attention as you do. Now, kiss and make up!

Searching Saturday

We're searching today for an answer. Why did beautiful little Sprout have to go back home to Heaven? Does God need her more than we do? Why do our wonderful friends have to leave? Why are some beans so mean to poor animals? Why don't people get along?

Someday, when we go to the Rainbow Bridge, we'll know all the answers. Until then, it's up to each one of us to be as kind to everyone as we can. Be a good bean or cat or woofie or whatever and hug all your friends and loved ones. . . .even strangers. Create love in the world to overcome all the evil things that happen to us and our friends. Don't waste time on envy and anger. And, don't forget to remember that you are all very special in God's eyes and He only wants the very best for you!!! And, you're all very special to us, too!!!! (((((hugs)))))

My Gotcha Day

Trixie: Well, my Gotcha Day was on Monday. Yep, that's right - August 11, 2006, was the day that Crazy Lady found me in the hot parking lot in the 'hood and brought me to my furr-ever home. C.L. doesn't know exactly when Thomas and Phoebe were born. And, their coming into the house to live was such a long drawn out event that took place over a period of months, there's no real Gotcha Day for them either. Therefore, we were going to celebrate all of them on August 11. However, this was such a sad week - we were grieving over Sprout and none of us really remembered to celebrate. It just wouldn't have been right some how. So, I think that Crazy Lady is going to do something really low key this weekend. Maybe we'll get a present or two, but no big blowout party. Next year, we'll celebrate in a big way and invite all y'all over to help.

In the meantime, let's keep lifting up Sprout and her family in our purrs and prayers.

:o) Thomas, Phoebe and Trixie

The Russians Are Coming. . . . .

So, I'm sitting here minding my own business when they announce on FoxNews that Russia has invaded Georgia.

Well, I can't see them!! Did they come in through the port at Savannah? Or maybe down I-75 from the North?

Have they taken over Macon? Are they on the way to Atlanta? And, what about Hayhira, Social Circle and Ludowici? Are they still free?

Oh, what are we going to do to protect the women, children and baby pussy cats (mostly the baby pussycats!!!!)?

I think I'll just hole up in this nice sturdy box. They'll never touch me!!! What's that? It's a different Georgia? You mean there's actually another place on this planet called Georgia????
How can that happen?
Well, I'll just lie down and rest up from this emergency.

Touched By Sadness

I think everyone must know by now, but in case you didn't hear - little Violette Noelle, better known as Sprout, had a terrible accident on Saturday and has gone back to heaven to be with God. Her family misses her so much and will take a long time to get back to some degree of a normal life. Of course, nothing will ever be totally normal again without this Little Blessing, but we have to pray for peace and comfort for Monty Q, Tracey and all of their family. Please be praying for Sprout and her loved ones.

Thanks to Daisy's Mom who made the great graphic with Sprout's picture.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Thomas: I wanted a little lovin' today, so I cozied up to D.C. He knows how to pet hard - just the way I like it.

So, up goes the elevator butt.

Here's a good side view of the elevator butt.

This is what I love!! I'm really gettin' in the groove.

Oo-o-o-o-h-h-h-h, this is feelin' so good - my fingers and toes are gettin' all tingly!!!

Trixie and Dixie are snoopervisin'.

Oh, puhleeze. . . . don't stop now - I'm beggin' ya!!!!

Okay, D.C. - prove to us that you are ambidexterous.

Where'd he go?? Do you think I pushed him too far?

Is It Trixie. . . or Is It Memorex?

Well, Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat has a friend that she can send on secret missions. That made me think that I could send my friend Dixie on special missions for me!! And, I know that nobody can tell the difference in me and Dixie, right?


Here's the two of us just resting.

Nobody has a clue as to which is which.

Then Crazy Lady puts the mousie on the string in front of Dixie to play.

Hey, C.L., don't you even know the difference between us?

Hey - this is me, Trixie!!!! Don't ever give that one my food!

Now that I've blown my cover, I guess I'll just play with the mousie.
