Selfies with a Twist and B & W, too!

Minko: 'Well here is a new way to make it doubly! See my paw, there, I just finished reaching over to the camera and used the timer button...OMC! MOL!'
'Of course you can tell that I had to dose Pipo with some nip befur he consented to a selfie session at all...sigh...'

Pipo: 'You tricked me Minko, one day I shall get you back...'

I took this selfie-doubly and made it black and white for the B & W Blog hop too.

So: We joined up with CJ's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop
Here is her badge:

And we also joined up to the B & W Blog Hop as hosted by Nola & Sugar:

A Fractured Paw Award...OOPSIE!

We got this (dubious) award from Jan's Funny Farm. It celebrates the oopsies that the pawrents of the furry kids get into, mostly crashes, falls, tumbles and other indignities to the personages involved...due to clumsiness and likely a tad of stupidity as to safety and suchlike.

Um...thanks evfur so much! MOL!!

Meowmy related these episodes to their blog and now she is one of their honorees. Whose gonna get it next in the big world of Blogger Land. (As we call it...)

Our Meowmy likes to test out stairs she discovers, in homes, churches, and other buildings...she tests almost all of them by falling down them, and yes, she's done the falling up maneuver too.  Amazingly the only broken bone she knew about was her foot, when she wasn't doing stairs, but showing off how her pawrents' new puppy pranced, MOL!   And she has a healed vertebrae fracture in her mid back, from a tumble you guessed it...down some stairs...carrying her seven month old first son, our unfurbro. Angel-Simba was at the top of those stairs and he tripped her. Or so she says, MOL!  She didn't even know she had that fracture until about 18 years later after a routine chest xray. Go figure.  Oh and she fell off a chair while standing on it to get in a closet...we think our Meowmy is dangerous to herself.

Then she remembered this funny moment: (Though it wasn't too funny at the time...)

Here is another clumsy act she pulled off at her job of all places: She was passing drinks of water to all the residents...big 500cc cups with straws...and she had delivered her fresh ones and was about to turn with the old ones to dump them out. She caught her toe under a cord she didn't expect to be there, and she stumbled all across the room and landed squarely in the ladies bathroom, on her knees...OUCH!...but didn't spill a drop!
Oh, how that lady and her visitor giggled and giggled, but meowmy had a furry red face and two badly bruised knees...and dignity!

Oops! She dropped the award on her kidding, MOL!Thanks (?) fur passing that along to our meowmy...she deserves it...tee-hee!

So...if you relate oopsies and clumsy moments,  We will help meowmy pick out someone to donate this award to! But pawlease be careful, OK??


We don't think we are gonna have accidents this way, MOL!

Catsterland Doings

Some of you like us are Catster 'refugees'.  There have been a lot of so called fleas over there, but the diligent workers have been fixing them. We are glad we are not techies, MOL!
Well, meowmy as our catretary wrote a diary entry about those fixes...and voila we were a Daily Diary Pick today. (aka DDP).

Well a good Catster furend and her furmily made this picture badge fur us, so we thought you would all enjoy seeing us when we were a lot younger. Um...its so old the temporary fencing is still in place, that was replaced in 2007...and if you look behind Minko you can still see some of the gym set we had fur the unfurs...

This is what we dictated to the catretary to put in our Catster Diary today:

We are a DDP today!
We almost missed it too, because the catretary was going to say we couldn't get on here today...but she relented. It was a good thing we reminded her that since Catster is working so much better...well there are still some fleas about...that we really needed to check on things...and voila! DDP!

We want to thank Tundra and her talented crew fur making us this picture/badge as a memento of today's 'honor'.

Our DDP Badge from Tundra and her furmily. Sheesh we were so young here!

We got lots of big hugs from our pals, and a blue bird singing to us, and a ribbon, too. Thank mew all so furry much!

We hope all of our Catster pals feel well, and you are all invited to visit us in our blog, and also feel free to make comments. We try to get the catretary to answer all of the comments that come...eventually, MOL! Here is a link for you to copy/ paste:

Ya'll have a great rest of the week!
Happy 'Catstering' too!


And Happy Blogging to all of our blogging pals!!

Some Kitties That We Have Not Met, MOL!

We want to show you some kitties that meowmy has seen and petted…well, how dare she, MOL!

She says she really doesn’t know what to let us mew about other than the usual boring junk that all kitties do…and she wants to let you know we have not vamoosed or anything…we are still around and well!

Its just that meowmy is bogged down…with too much not kitty stuff. Huh? Too busy? Why…oh well…she still cuddles us and scritches us in the best spots, and makes sure she fills the bowls with noms and fresh water……cleans the litter box. Thanks meowmy, we know its a yucky job, esp when Not-Me steps inside the box and lets it rip, even though the back end is not in the box…OMC, what a mess that makes, and a stinky one too, kitty pee is powerful in the noses of our peeps, MOL!

So we think we’ll furgive her, cause we think no one else around here could do all those things and still be in bogged down mode.

So here are these kitties.

This is Panda, she sees him when she takes the dog-guy for a stroll. He is handsome and sleek, and furry friendly.

Then there are these kittens, she forgot their names, they were newly gotten here when meowmy visited her cousins in Europe.

Our auntie who traveled with meowmy loved them to bits, and she is not a kitty lady, MOL!

Then there was Mitzie, a sweet kitty belonging to another cousin. She had suitors trying to get into her den via the kitty door, MOL! And this kitty was spayed! Now they have an electronic key for her to open a different door.


Meowmy’s auntie adopted these two strays, they were still furry shy when meowmy saw them. They were called Pinky & Perky.


Pinky & Perky

Another cousin had two kitties. An Orangey and a jet black one…meowmy also can’t remember their names, MOL! You got to  know these kitties came into her life when she didn’t even know about things like (Catster) Blogging and suchlike. So she didn’t even write down the details, MOL! She wishes she had…

She knows that the Orangey passed away last year. Sad...he had kidney disease.

These kitties liked to go fishing for their drinks!

This is a kitty belonging to yet another cousin, MOL! Lots of kitty lovers in meowmy's furmily in Europe!
No idea what he was called...

A while ago when meowmy was visiting her sister, the neighbors have this kitty who comes to visit her a lot, even walks into her den, MOL! His name is Mr Kat.


Mr Kat  ~  He is a rescue kitty, and he is blind in the left eye, but it doesn't bother him at all.

So fur now, those are the kitties we’ve heard about but nevfur seen ourselves...

And fur good we are!

We are grooming each other  and ourselves...kitties gotta be spiffy!

And a wee favor to ask: Our Great Auntie who is 94 1/2, fell and broke her wrist. She needs surgery to repair it, and likely will be needing to go into a care facility. Our Auntie (Who you can see here), is helping out fur now along with a cousin and some Home-Care assistance.
A wee bit-o-purring fur her would be appawsiated.
