A Quiet Place .

Esme , " This is my quiet place . The old wicker bassinet in the cottage . LP put the little bed her friend gave her as a present for Malou's arrival, in the bassinet . Before Malou became Malou AND Levon. The little bed in the bassinet is mine now ."

Esme , " I can do my nails here ."

Esme , " And fix my furs ."

Esme , " I like to take my long afternoon nap in my quiet place too ."

Esme , " No one can find me here."

Have a terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Cat Politics .

Levon , " Awkward. It feels as though there is an elephant in the room. "
Mitalee and Esme , " Get out of here. Get out of here. Get out of here ."

Levon,  " It almost feels as though they are ignoring me on purpose . I wonder if I did something to annoy them (again) ."

Mitalee and Esme , " Get out of here. Get out of here. Get out of here."

Levon , " Maybe I should just leave ..."

Have a marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Thudding .

Mitalee , " First let me start by saying I LOVE the kittens. Truly. It's just , "Oh look at the kittens!! Sooo cute.Where's my camera?! " can get FATIGUING after two months... "

Mitalee , " It's almost as though LP has forgotten that 1 + 1 = kittens but does not equal, CRITTERS. I mean there are many of us in the cottage . More than TWO . It can't be all about  kittens for our every waking hour . I have to speak up. The rest of us are NOT chopped liver ! "

Mitalee , " Some of us have our own cute little assets too ..."

Mitalee , " I , for example , have something those Hairless Wonders may never have..."

Mitalee , " My curly , velvety , soft belleh furs ."

Mitalee , " Aren't my curly belleh furs attention worthy ? Worthy of a few, " thuds " ? Worthy of keeling over and... Thud-ding?! I do believe so ! "

Have a great day! And lovely weekend too.
See you Monday.

Happy Year of the Dragon .

LP, " Some of you who have been reading this blog since last year when we first began our adventure , may recall me mentioning that Daddyman's parents came from China to Canada many years ago. This means that we enjoy celebrating  Chinese New Year together each year. "

LP , " Last year I posted about the Chinese New Year parade which is always very fun to attend here in Vancouver's Chinatown ."

LP, " Last year's rainy parade but with wonderful attendance nonetheless !"

LP, "Chinese New Year is feted all over the world and can be very elaborate ."

LP, " We wish you a Happy Chinese New Year. May this lunar year be a year of prosperity and well being for each and every one of you.Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin). We say, Gong Hey Fat Choy! (Cantanese) . Happy Year of the Dragon !

A few of my Favourite Things .

Levon , " I've been asked to name a few of my favourite things. Since kittens have the attention span of a gnat...well, anyway, that's what Esme claims...it was difficult to narrow it down but here goes..."

Levon , " I love playing in this tunnel. LP bought it for Esme when she was a kitten and everyone has sort of outgrown it but I really LOVE it !! "

Levon , " Speaking of tunnels...I love my soft , crinkle tunnel too. Some times I even fall asleep in it ! "

Levon , " Auntie Wendy gave us this spiral mousie and I play with it every day 'cause it's a fav! "

Levon , " Here I am giving the bitey to my favourite peach mousie ."

Levon , " Take that mousie ! "

Levon , " Another one of my favourite things is this basket. It used to belong to Lewis , my angel brofur's. I have my long naps in it most days. LP says that's really good. But I have to say, my favourite thing of them all ...

Levon , " ... is playing with Malou . She makes my heart sing ."

Have a marvelous Monday !
See you soon.

Two Peas in a Pod .

Malou , " I was just getting ready for a nice afternoon nap when who comes along but Levon the Giant. That's what I like to call him. The Giant . On account of his giantness. "

Malou , " He's always stepping all over me like some big , brainless puppy ..."

Malou , " Easy there really big , giant , clumsy puppy."

Malou , " I suppose I'll let him stay. He IS warm and cosy . And you really can't separate two peas in a pod. Anyway , that's what LP says. We are her two peas in a pod."

LP, " Uh huh. My two adorable peas in a pod ."

Have a great day and weekend!
See you Monday.

Thankful (Thursday) for my Curly Furs.

Mitalee , " I'm thankful for my thick , curly furs that keep me toasty warm ."

Mitalee , " And I'm also thankful for this cat tree that stays indoors, rain or shine."

Mitalee , " Central heating is also something to be thankful for these days in Lotus Land. 'Cause , Fellow Critters, you won't believe it but..."

Mitalee , " We had a snowfall to the very tips of trees and even piled high atop rooftops! Here in rainy Vancouver, where it rains for ten months of the year ! Well , almost for ten months of the year.But snow that stays?! That's not usual in these parts. So...I'm thankful for my curly furs. And for indoor heating."

Mitalee , " Do you know what I am thinking about right now ?"

Mitalee , " Spring ."

Have a toasty , warm Thursday.
See you soon.
