Oh Man!

I had to go to the V-E-T yesterday! Who would have thought? Mommy wasn't home, so how was I supposed to know that Daddy was going to swoop in and grab me and take me off to the V-E-T!?

That big old mean V-E-T said that I was completely healthy and a big strong ManCat. And I made sure to show him by peeing all over them!!! Bwahahahahaha! And then, just to make sure that they got the message I pooped all over the floor and my carrier (Daddy wasn't too thrilled about that part). But at least the nice helper lady cleaned me up and told me how brave I was so I felt better.

Oh, and you shoulda have seen the look on my face when my Mommy got home. Boy did I give her the stink eye! In fact, it was such a fearsome gaze that I broke the camera (Mommy here, there does seem to be a problem with the card, I expect the camera will be fine with a new card - but it was a chilling gaze).

Floofy Friday

We've got something here - not sure what just yet!



But once we catch it, we're gonna take it to Mommy and hopefully she won't abandon us again. Actually we'd probably get her to stay if we didn't bring it back to her! Aw heck, she's probably gonna go to California and leave us here with Daddy anyway - we're gonna give this thing to her anyway!

You haven't seen two handsome ManCats prowling around in the garden before?

Wet Weekend

Boy oh boy did we get a lot of rain this weekend - Mommy said that it rained "cats and dogs", but we didn't see any other kitties or pups. But there was a lot of water, see Jake can't even keep his feet dry!


It rained and poured off and on Friday and Saturday, we barely got to out at all. Thankfully there was a bit of a break and Mommy let us out for a bit to enjoy - we were so excited to get some time outside that we actually hung out together!

Wow-Wee

We were gonna make this a Wordless Wednesday, but then we realized that it was too much fun not to tell the story about this little guy.


Bert and I found this guy on Sunday while Mommy was "gardening" (which really means her digging around and throwing things and using words from the bad word list). So Mommy thought she'd take a picture of this toad since he was so cute. But then he jumped and Mommy screamed - really loud, so loud that Daddy came running and had to carry off our toy!

We went on our merry way - out and about in the garden, just enjoying the day. And not long after that we heard another scream! This time Mommy dug up another toad and accidentally touched it. She was so freaked out she ran into the house and finished "gardening" for the day - hee hee hee!!!

I Got a Shiner!

Do I look really tough? Would it be better if I was bleeding?


Mommy's not really sure how I managed to get banged up, but I did! Hopefully not enough so that I have to go to the V-E-T - just enough to look really ManCatly and tough.

- Bert

P.S. It's George's Birthday today, she'd probably love some visitors!

Mad ManCat Monday

Sigh...



Mommy missed my Gotcha Day! She so completely missed it that she had to be reminded by the Cat Blogosphere and all the lovely comments from Saturday! Pearl and Bert kept trying to tell her, but she was just so "bizzy" that she wasn't paying any attention!

There is a spot of good news though, to make up for it I got extra breakfast the last two morning and extra treats. And Mommy has promised that I can have any new toy that I want. So I think I'll just sit here and figure out what toy I want and other ways that she and Daddy can make this up to me.

Let's Get Together

We’re getting together!  All the Mid-West kitties are going to get a chance to meet, oh what's that Mommy? WHAT - it’s just for 'Beins, no kitties at all?!?

Yes kitties, I’m afraid it’s true, the Mid-West 'Beins are getting together in Chicago on May 31st. The current plan is to have an adventure at the Chicago Zoo.

If you are interested in joining us or want further details please email us pbandjkitties AT gmail DOT com or leave a comment to let Mommy know and we may pass on the details ;-)

ManCat Monday

Mommy promises to help me stop by and visit everyone that came to the party, but it might take a bit!

Happy Earth Day!


We figured the best way to celebrate Earth Day was to get out and about - you know, enjoy a little fresh air. Only it's raining today, so we'll just have to remember how nice it was on Saturday and hope for another really great weekend!

..... And We're Back!

Seems only fitting that we should come back with Tuxie Tuesday, right? I mean, am I right?!

Well, especially since the only thing that got Mommy to finally help us was the realization that my 3rd Gotcha Day is coming up on Thursday. That's right, she almost forgot!!! But is seemed as good an excuse as we were likely to get for getting back to blogging. We've really missed you all and we're excited to get back to visiting and catching up with all of our friends.

So here's a quick run down of all the things that have been happening here:
- We've been given a couple of awards (we'll work on getting those re-distributed).
- Mommy and Daddy have mostly gotten the house back together since the second basement flood (though not all the way).
- It's been snowing, raining and generally yucky weather around here, which makes for good snuggling but lots of crazy kitties with cabin fever.
- We've gotten a bunch of cool packages from friends and we've sent some good ones too.
- Mommy got a wii fit, and so has been generally ignoring us daily.
- Daddy got a new job, which is exciting but it means that he's gone more than he used to be, so it's a bit of a bummer for us (even though Mommy and Daddy are pretty happy about that).
- Mommy is going to be walking in the Race for the Cure at the end of May, and she and George have been practicing (of course please feel free to donate to the cause as well).
- Mommy abandoned us for Easter weekend, she left to visit some friends in Washington DC, she had a lot of fun but we sure did miss her (not to mention that we didn't get a very yummy Easter dinner).

I'm sure there's more, but that will do for now! And don't worry, we'll be back :-)

Finally Floofy Friday

Well, as usual we've had a busy week - but thankfully it's Friday and we can get some relaxing done (well until we have to snoopervise putting the basement back together)!

Thursday Thirteen

It's been a while since we've done a T13, so we thought maybe we'd do one today!

But then we got to thinking, what should we "thirteen"? And then we realized that we could make this a Tattle Tail/Thursday 13 (mwahahaha!)

13 Things that we've been doing since Mommy and Daddy have been to lame to clean-up since the last Basement Flood:

1. Racing up and down the rolled-up carpet, it's crazy fun!

2. Pearl's been sleeping on a paint drop cloth that's usually in the tool closet (that was yesterday's picture).

3. Bert likes using the stacks of books to hide from the birds when he's "window shopping".

4. Jake is enjoying clawing the extra carpet pad.

5. George may have aided and abetted Pearl in chewing an electrical cord.

6. We've all been in the pantry (we're never allowed to do that)!

7. There are tons of boxes to hop on to - and into.

8. The bookcases are in still empty and in the middle of the room so we can get up in the rafters more easily!

9. Mommy's dolls are out for us to play with (boy, did Bert get in trouble for that)!

10. All the dvds are piled up, but boy do they fly when you try to jump on them (and they make a big noise that brings Mommy and Daddy running).

11. The blanket basket that Mommy tries to keep away from us has been sitting in the hall - it sure is a cozy spot.

12. Did we mention all the great boxes!!!

13. And Bert loves the step stool sitting next to the kitty tree - all the better to get to the top.

I bet after Mommy reads this list she's going to be so embarrassed that she'll get everything cleaned up right away hee hee hee!

Tortie Tuesday

Wew - we sure have been busy with the whole Birthday thing lately! But, Bert's lucky - no one ever forgets his birthday :-) Sorry that we were gone yesterday, but Mommy decided to take the day off. And she really took it off - she didn't do much of anything (hee hee, I suppose this probably should be a Tattle Tail Tuesday :-)

The good news is that the talented Zoolatry Human did this for me!

I think it's a wonderful way to celebrate Tortie Tuesday (though come to think of it, maybe I should have saved it for Floofy Friday ;-)!

Birthday Bash Weekend

SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Happy Birthday Bert and Mommy!!!!!!


Did we surprise you? Did all the kitties keep it quiet?! It's Bert's 3rd birthday on Sunday and Mommy's 30-something-ish birthday on Monday :-) But we're all excited to celebrate this weekend with all of our friends, so come on in and enjoy!

Now since this party is for kitties and 'beins (and of course woofies, hammies and any other creature that would like to join us) we figured we'd better have food for everyone!

So to eat there's:
Roast Beef Sandwiches
Turkey
Salmon
Hamburgers
Shrimp
And of course Ham!


To Drink:

Niptinis for all the kitties that are "of age"

A little milk for all the kittens (no underage drinking here!)
And Mommy's favorite for all the 'beins

We hope you all have a great time!!!!!

Tuxie & Tortie Tuesday

What are you looking a Mommy?


It's no big deal, it's not like I'm planning on pouncing on her or anything. Can't a tuxie just hang out with his sisfurr?

No, probably not (mwahahahaha!!!!!).

ManCat Thief!

So this really cool looking package came to the house on Friday - and it was addressed to me, from the sweetest Girlfriend Cat ever, Tazo! But Mommy said she thought it might be fr Valentines, so she made me wait till Saturday. The good news is that it was totally worth the wait, look...



But I didn't even get a chance to enjoy it - look, that big brother of mine went and stole the cool fev-ver toy!



I was sad and tried to play with the cool mices, but then Mommy came to the rescue and yelled at Jake and gave me back my toy! Yay Mommy!!!!! (Though I expect that Jake will try to steal it again really soon.)

Thanks again Tazo!

Flooded - Again!

Pearl: Mommy has a whole new excuse, shesh, that woman will do anything to get out of helping us visit our friends! Now she's "saying" that the yard is flooded again.

Bert: Um, Pearl, the yard really is flooded again. See...


Pearl: Oh, well, then I guess it's an ok excuse.

Bert: Yeah, I think we're gonna be a bit busy for a while! So we want to take a quick minute to say Happy Valentines Day to all our friends and of course our sweeties Dante, Tazo and Queen Snickers!

Thankful Thursday

As usual, we've got lots to be thankful for today.

First of all we're thankful to all of our wonderful friends - we know we've been horrible friends lately. Mommy's been so busy she hasn't had time to help us visit. You all are so nice to visit even though we can't!

And then we got some more awards!
