Holiday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: Hi friends. The weekend is over but because
today is Victoria Day we have mum home with us.
I love extra mum days. She decided that it was time I had
a good brushing too.



 Just look at all the fur she got.I love brush sessions as it
 feels like a massage session.Mum, I want more!


JJ and I often snooze together.
He likes to lean on me as you can see here.
He is a great brother.


As you know, Julie loves windows.
Here she is sitting in the bathroom window. 
She has a friend with her too, Big Kitty.


Julie in her favourite spot, the kitchen window!
She gets sunshine and good views from here.
Sadly there will be no sunbathing today.
We are having rain and a chance of thundershowers!

This would have been his 5th Gotcha Day.
He is with treasured friends at the Rainbow Bridge,

Close Up Friday!


Georgia: Well, another week has come and gone.
We are a bit excited this weekend as we have an extra mum day!
We are celebrating Victoria Day on Monday and 
mum will be home with us! WooHoo !
We always like extra mum days and so does she so she is
taking the day off work.

We will be looking forward to scritches,belly rubs and brushings.
We know that all that will be FUN!
Today, we are showing our close ups. 
Here is mine.

Monday Musings and JJ's New Do


Julie: We finally got to have some sunshine
this weekend. It was nice.
It felt really nice on my furs too.


I even got to dine in the sun. I liked that!


Mmmmmm! That was tasty!


JJ and Georgia spent some time snoozing.
They enjoyed the sun too.


They even decided to have a drink together.
JJ is showing off his new fur cut.
His fur matted up faster than mum could deal with,
so she had the Vet staff trim the furs. 
She did not want to do the shaving as his skin is so thin.
JJ is happy mum is not picking at his matts anymore!


These two are determined to do everything together!

Friday Close Ups!


Georgia: As usual, mum leaves everything to the last 
minute and that includes getting pictures for
Friday Close-Ups.
She figured she could just grab the camera and 
tell us to pose and snap away.
A usual, we are not impressed.
Lucky for you, our friends, we cannot take
bad pictures even when we do not cooperate. MOL!
Here is my picture.



This is JJ. It is not so much that he was not 
working with mum as he was not sure where  to look.
HIs eyesight is not the best, so he decided on profile.


Julie is the worst. As soon as she saw mum taking pictures,
she ran off. Here she is hiding under some furniture.
Thanks to Photoshop, mum was not deterred. 
She had to lighten this picture.


It was pretty dark where she was so when mum lightened
this picture, it looks grainy.
However, mum got the close up!
For a girl that loves attention, you would think
she would love posing.


So there you have it.Last minute and  it's done.
We really need to get mum organized.

Why was mum so late? She took JJ for his
check-up. The Vet was really pleased.
Ha will go back in a week or so to have his blood
pressure tested again to see if his new medication
is working.
Because he is a long haired cat, he tends to get matts.
So mum got them shaved. Now he has a bare spot on his mid section.
We think he looks cool and maybe he feels cool.
Mum will make sure he keeps warm. We will share pictures 
on Monday.

For now, we are going to enjoy the weekend
and have FUN!!

What will you be doing to have FUN?

Monday Musings with Julie



Julie: Hello friends and how was your weekend?
Mine was pretty good.Saturday was cloudy and drizzly.
It was a good day for napping. That's what we all did.
Good thing too as mum was away all day. 
Her Aunt was celebrating her 90th birthday and mum went
to  her party with her sister.

  

Though her health is not the best, she loved having
so many people celebrate this amazing milestone.


Sunday was sunny! It is so nice to have those warm
sunbeams on my furs!


Georgia:
I agree Julie.Sunshine is pawsome and so re brushings.
Mum have me a good brushing session.
I really loved it too.


 It's like having a big scratch and you feel so good
afterwards. You look pretty good too!


JJ: I got a brush too, but I don't like it as much.
My furs tend to get into matts. When mum does not 
do the brushings every day, the matts appear.
I will be having my annual check up this Thursday.
Maybe they will help with some of the matts.
We will get a better update on my health too
While I am slowing down and sleep a lot, my appetite
is pretty good.My sight is not and sometimes I am unsteady.
All in all, I am still pretty happy.


On Saturday morning, mum was able to get a picture
of Mr Groundhog. He is very nervous and takes off
in a flash if he thinks he hears a noise.


We all hope you have a good week!

Thoughtful Friday



Before we start our post, we want to recognize the
passing of two special cats that have played a big part
in the Cat Blogosphere for many years.
She entertained us with her wardrobe and her charming life
and the many things she explored and all her antics
on her blog"Daisy the Curly Cat"



We also remember Maggy.
She lived in Florida with her sister Zoey and the 
Zoolatry human.
When a move north was necessary, Maggy stayed 
in  Florida with her new "mum"
While they were separated, the love was never lost.
Visits and news were often shared.
We loved seeing Maggy and Zoey and their
antics  on the Zoolatry blog


We will always remember these two very sweet cats.


For our post today we present our close ups!
Here is Georgia  highlighted by the evening sun.


JJ after he had a good long drink from the water bowl.
You can see he has a water mustache.


Julie in the kitchen window highlighted by the evening sun.


Saturday will be a bit rainy, but the sun returns for Sunday.
We also look forward to warmer temps.
Maybe Spring really has arrived!
Either way, you know we will be having FUN !!!

Happy May Day and a Birthday for Julie!




Happy May Day to all of our friends!!!!




As many of you know, Julie was rescued from the great
outdoors  in July of 2012.
When mum took her to the Vet, theVet said she was not spayed.
She is now ;)
The Vet also guessed she was about 3 years old and  they 
decided on April as a birth month.
As for a date, the 30th is just as good as any.

had their Petcretary make this beautiful birthday card!


Julie says "THANK YOU!"

Monday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: Well, we had a mixed weekend. Lots  of rain
om Saturday and sunny on Sunday.
Naturally as indoor cats we did not mind and
\as mum did not have to go anywhere, she did
not mind either.She only went out to feed the birds.


JJ was enjoying the sun and the extra warmth!
So was another cat.


Julie: She's behind me with the camera isn't she?


Hi mum! 
Yup, just absorbing the rays.


The scene Saturday night.
Yup, we were lazy cats. MOL!


When it was not pouring on Saturday,
Mr Groundhog came out to feed.
He is pretty nervous so mum had to be sneaky and
not move to fast in order to take his picture.
She took this from the kitchen window.


All in all a pretty good weekend.
How was your weekend?

Finally Friday !



Georgia: Well friends, it's finally Friday!
It's been a crazy weather week with rain,warm and cool
temperatures and today...sun!!


That makes me really happy.
Sunshine makes pretty much everyone happy.
It feels really good on our bodies.


JJ likes the feel of sun. His eyesight is not good
anymore and he is blind in one eye.
Still, he is a happy guy and loves attention 
and food. That makes mum happy.


With very little sun this past few weeks, Julie has had a 
hard time enjoying herself on the porch.
Way back on April 14 was the last time the sun was shining
enough that Julie could bask in it.


As you can see, she loved it a lot!
She rubs her face when she is happy.


We are getting showers on Saturday(dang)  but
the sun returns on Sunday!
You know what happens then?  
FUN happens!

WE wish you all a FUN weekend !
What will you be doing?
