This Is All Dad’s Fault
by Theo - Boy Meows - Comments (2) - January 14th, 2010

Dad took these embarrassing pictures of me and Mom just HAS to show EFFURRYONE cuz she says they’re cute! Hmph.

theobuttsFirst we have this shot of me looking out the window. Dad says I was looking at something really excitin’ and whatever it was had me quivering. I’m so long in the body that it’s more comfortable for me to flop over the edge of the chair like this than to try to gather my legs up under me.

theo-windowcloseBut it’s not all bad. Dad got this handsome pic of me posing for the camera. Yeah, aren’t I good-looking?

Admire The Theo

theo-desksitterThis is me, giving Mama a dirty look because she hasn’t updated our blog in FURREVER!!! BAD MAMA!! Shes giving us this excuse about taking some class and being really busy but we aren’t buying it. We demand our computer time!

Anyway. It’s getting chilly here in Oregon, which means more snugglepiles indoors. This isn’t so bad. We don’t like the rain, so we spend more time inside. Mama just LOVES it when I wake her up at 5 am asking for more pets! MOL.

Tigsy is happy because Mama’s sisfur likes kittehs a lot, so she gets lots of extra lap time when Dad isn’t around. This extra lap thing is coming really in handy for Tigs! Also, Auntie lets Tigsy sleep on her bed while she does her homework. Since it’s nice and soft and squishy with blankets, Tigerlils is a happy kitteh girl! *purr*

theobeggingHere I am asking politely to share in something Dad is preparing in the kitchen. Unbeknownst to me, he was just washing some chanterelle mushrooms, but I thought he was making something really good! I was insisting that he at least let me check it out! Aren’t my spots excellent?

Happy Again

theo-81109I has decided to forgive Mom for stuffing me in a box and taking me to THAT PLACE. It started raining a lot here in Portland, so I been spending more time inside because I do not like being all wet. That means naps and pets and purrrs. Yeah. Mom snapped this picture of me snoozing on the bed in the middle of the day and I reached out my paw towards her. Yeah, I train her right with the cuteness, she got all gushy and I got some nice pets after she took the picture.

tigsyembarrassingTigsy has been really mad though. She has to have drops put in her ears twice a day for THREE WEEKS! It’s for the ear infections, and Mom and Dad want her ears to get better. Tigsy hates it though, she is very cranky kitty after they do the drops. Don’t tell her that Mom took this embarrassing picture of her, she looks kind of funny here! MOL! I do love teasing my Sisfur Tigs.

The Story of Tigsy Part 2
by Tigsy - Girl Meows - Comments (2) - August 4th, 2009

0804-tigsyBefore they brought me home, Mom & Dad had a discussion about “the rule.” Dad’s rule was No Cats in The Bedroom. Mom didn’t like this rule, she liked having a kitty sleep on the bed at night. But she said okay anyway.

The first day home, I settled in pretty good. I figured these humans were pretty nice people, so I wasn’t scared or anything. I liked getting the pets and the treats and hanging out with the humans. Then they went to bed, and SHUT THE BEDROOM DOOR! They LOCKED ME OUT!

I was having none of this. Srsly, the NERVE! I proceeded to yowl and yowl and scratch at the door and tear up the carpet under the door and yowl some more. Mom said Oh Poor Kitty, she’s lonely! Dad put a pillow over his head. Mom said She’s going to damage the carpet! So Dad said I could come in JUST THIS ONE NIGHT since it was my first night in my new furrever home. I trotted in with a MEOW and jumped on the bed and settled in.

You can see where this is going. The NO CATS IN THE BEDROOM rule didn’t last a single night, and I’ve been sharing the bed (or bedroom, I have a cozy bed of my own I like) ever since. Sometimes I even sneak UNDER THE BLANKETS when it’s cold and snuggle between the humans. I have them trained right!

The Story of Tigsy
by Tigsy - Girl Meows - Comments (2) - August 3rd, 2009

tigsy-031209In 1998, in December, Mom & Dad got married. Mom moved out of her parents’ house and Dad moved out of his parents’ house, and they lived happily ever after. Except for the part where they had no kitty of their own! This made Mom very sad, because she’d always had a cat! Dad, being a very wise man, suggested they start visiting the local shelter to see if they could find the perfect kitty to bring home with them.

Dad had only one request: he wanted an orange tabby cat, a marmalade kitty. Mom figured this was fine, she wasn’t feeling very picky about the color of the cat. So she started visiting the shelter every week. Several weeks went by, and the perfect kitty wasn’t found yet.

tigsy-0305Then… one day Mom visited, and she saw… me! I was sort of orange colored, or copper at least, and I looked funny, thought Mom. (She’d never seen a Bengal before!) I had a very loud meow, and had a long chat with mom about how little I liked the cage I was in, and couldn’t she see I was a princess?

Mom could indeed see that I was a princess. She hurried home and called Dad, saying she’d found a cat… but I wasn’t a marmalade kitty, but wouldn’t he come see me anyway? Dad came, and he was smitten. They signed the necessary paperwork, and brought me home.

Thus ends my story, part one. In part two, I’ll describe the difficult time I had properly training the humans.

Hot Hot Hot!
by Theo - Boy Meows - Comments (2) - July 30th, 2009

It’s been really hot in Portland the last few days, reaching well over 100 degrees F on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We do not like it, no we don’t! We have mostly been napping, so Mom has only really been able to get pictures of us napping.

tigsy_july30 Here we have Tigerlily snoozing in the back part of the house. She slept here for most of the day, until she moved later to find a chair to sleep on.
theo_july30 I found a place to snooze in the kitchen, on the built-in bench. It’s part of a little nook and is quite cool, most of the time. Later, I found Mom & Dad’s bed, and slept all stretched out like a sausage.

It is supposed to gradually get cooler. We hope so, since we do not like the hot weather. Dad has been leaving the little air conditioner on during the day, even while he & Mom are gone, so at least the house hasn’t gotten into the triple digits. We will be glad when this heat spell is over!

The Cuteness
by Tigsy - Girl Meows - Comments Off - July 21st, 2009

Do you want to see some of Theo’s baby pictures? I’m going to do it a little backwards and show you some pictures and next time I’ll tell you the story of when Theo came to live with us. My typist is a little tired tonight! (Why don’t they make keyboards more suitable for cat paws??)

theo_cute Here is Theo when he first came home. He was a cute little beast, and so very small! Even I thought he was cute, even though he was an obnoxious little kitten.
theo_action He was always attacking something. And he had some SHARP little teeth.
12-theo_windowsill But when he was sleepy, he was cute again. Awwww!

He’s all grown up now, but he sure was a cute kitten. Even a crusty old girl like myself had to admit that!

Snoozy Day
by Tigsy - Girl Meows - Comments (1) - July 17th, 2009

Hello Furriends!

It iz really hot here today! Well, at least hot  for us, we iz wimp cats here in Oregon and don’t like the heat. Theo and I spent most of the day snoozing in the house, where it’s at least a little cooler than outside. Mom snapped some pics of us snoozing.

theosnoozes717 First, Theo. Theo likes to sleep on da rug, cuz it’s nice and cool down on the floor. He’s really lazy when it’s hot. Mom thinks he so cute with his little turned upsidedown head.
tigsy_snooze717 Mom snapped this one of me, asleep in my favorite perch by the window. She thought it was cute, the way my little paw was resting on the edge. Unfortunately, my new collar isn’t showing. We’ll have to try again to get a good picture of that.

What do you say furriends? What are your favorite things to do on a hot day?
