HAPPY NEW YEAR



Mama, look at me! I borrowed Miss Bandit's hat.
What do you think?
No, it's not too big.

Oops! Maybe it's a little big.


It has been a great year and we want to thank all of you for being our friends. Without you the blogging world wouldn't be nearly as much fun. There is so much to look forward to in 2013 and we are excited to sharing the year with all of you.

There is a New Year's Eve party going on at Purry Cute. If you have a little time why not stop by and enjoy the festivities.

Homes for Christmas



Hey Adam, where are you?

I'm here Georgia! But where are you?

Adam, look down.
Here I am!

We need to show the peoples some more photos from before Christmas. More photos of us Georgia?
No silly, we have some photos of a visit our Mama made to the Humane Society the Saturday before Christmas.

The event was called Home for the Holidays. The idea was to get as many kitties and puppies adopted before Christmas so they would all have homes for the holiday. Isn't that a great present for the cats and dogs?

When Mama arrived all the shelter staff were on hand greeting everyone who was looking for a pet.

All the cats and dogs were in there rooms waiting for the hoomans to arrive. Everyone was on their best behavior for the day.

When Mama left the Blue Mountain Humane Society had already exceeded their record for adoptions that was set in 2011 and they were still adopting.

Georgia, I hope all the kitties and puppies and other animals (rabbits, hamsters and parakeets) all got new forever homes.

Me too Adam! I wish they could all have a wonderful home like we do.

Please remember your local animal shelter or Humane Society during this holiday season. They can all use donations of food and supplies or money. Or if you have some space in your home for a new friend there are always animals who need a loving home.

Kittens' First Christmas



Hey everybody, Georgia and Adam here. Did you know this was our very first Christmas?
We were so excited that we could hardly sleep on Christmas Eve night. We knew Santy Claws would bring us some fun toys. He also brought us some really tasty salmon and tuna snacks. Yummy in our tummies!

Ooh, that one has feathers.
Hey Adam, what is that around your neck?

It was in one of the boxes. I ask Mama if I could wear it and she said yes. But I did not say she could take my picture while I had it on. Go away with the flashy beast Mama.

I see that treat. You are trying to trick me into looking at the flashy beast aren't you Mama. Well, it's not going to work this time. Now help me take it off and then you can take all the pictures you want to. That's good, now I can go back to checking out the goodies.

What is that at the bottom of this thing?

I know there have to be more toys in here.

Come on Adam, get all those toys out of there.

Two very tired kittens. Opening packages and playing with toys can be exhausting.

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Was Santy Claws good to you?

Merry Christmas



Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a kitten.

Aw Mama, enough already with the flashy beast. We want to go to sleep so Santy Claws will come to visit.




Our favorite Christmas videos!



I, Georgia, want to thanks everybody for all the warm wishes. I am feeling a lot better since my visit to the vet. Me and Adam have been playing like crazy.

++++ HAVE YOURSELF A PURRFECT CHRISTMAS  ++++

Make You Smile



Hey everybody, Adam here. Today me and Georgia were playing and having fun when Mama said her and Georgia needed to take a little trip together. I wondered why I wasn't invited so after they left I asked Dad what was going on. He said Georgia was going to the vet to get a checkup and some medicine. She has been sneezing and her eyes are watering. He told me not to worry, Mama already knew what the problem was and Georgia would be fine.

I knew Georgia wouldn't be happy that she had to go to the vet's office. So while they were gone I looked for some things that would make Georgia smile when she got back. I hope they make you smile too.

Thanks Sandra, aka The Mad Snapper



This is a fun video!


Note from Mama: Georgia is fine. She has an upper respiratory infection (a head cold basically). She got a shot of antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment for her eyes. She and Adam have been running and playing ever since we got home. I just wanted to get her treated before it got worse and spoiled her holiday.

I Could Pee on This


 A Book Review . . . .  sort of

Hey Georgia, look what I found.

This looks interesting. There are lots of great photos of cute cats.

It smells good too.

I think we could learn a lot from this book Adam. There are lots of poems that tell what cats would like to say to humans. Listen to this Adam,and I quote, 

"Nine-hundred-and-ninety-eight
So please take note
Nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine
And now thanks to me we all know
There really were one thousand sheets
On this toilet paper roll"

That's good information Georgia, but maybe we should count those sheets for ourselves. 
Read more.

 
We has never reviewed a book before (we are only four months old you know) but we really like I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats. There are lots of poems about all the things kitties would tell humans if they would listen. Some of our favorites are Kitten, Did You Know, Forever, Cute Bed Jump and ..... oh heck, we like all of the poems. All of the poems are written by kitties so that makes them sweet and funny too. Very funny! If you share your life with a cat or cats (like our house) you are going to love this little book. We thinks you should buy a copy right now, if not for you buy it for your cat.

Reviewed by Georgia and Adam
Thank you!

PS, What are you waiting for, buy this book for your cat!



I Could Pee on This
and Other Poems by Cats



I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats
Cat lovers will laugh out loud at the quirkiness of their feline friends with these insightful and curious poems from the singular minds of housecats. In this hilarious book of tongue-in-cheek poetry, the author of the internationally syndicated comic strip Sally Forth helps cats unlock their creative potential and explain their odd behavior to ignorant humans. With titles like "Who Is That on Your Lap?," "This Is My Chair," "Kneel Before Me," "Nudge," and "Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs," the poems collected in I Could Pee on This perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche. With photos of the cat authors throughout, this whimsical volume reveals kitties at their wackiest, and most exasperating (but always lovable).

The Penguin Mystery Part 3



Hey Adam! Want to know a secret?
There is a penguin in our house.

That's silly Georgia, what would a penguin be doing in our house?

Penguins live around Antarctica, not here in Washington State. 

"Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans."
-- Wikipedia 

How could a penguin be here Georgia?

Excuse me! Are you talking about me?
I am not a penguin.

My NAME is Penguin.
The Squirrel Lady calls me Pingy for short. I'm eleven weeks old.

I was at the shelter and got nootered when they noticed I had a runny nose and was sneezing. Squirrel Lady said she would take me to her place. I'm here for a few days to take medicine for my cold. I don't mind, it doesn't taste too bad and I know it will make me feel better.

Ms. Squirrel Lady says when I'm better I will go back to the Blue Mountain Humane Society just in time for a big adoption event called Home for the Holidays. I will find my new forever home there. I like it here but having my very own forever home will be the best Christmas present ever.
