Need More Treats

Only displaying the Pet Natural Hairball treats

A few months ago we got contacted by Pet Naturals in Vermont to try out their Hairball treats.  We just got them in April and most of us gobbled them right up.  Silly Mom lost the bag before she got some pics of us so we didn't post this until now.  (The bag fell behind the bookcase.)

Two Spot and Only gobble them up so fast Mom can't get a shot of the treats.

Mom was sent two bags of treats and the kitties who ate the Hairball treats from the first bag have glossy shiny fur with no more dandruff.  We can't say if the hair ball situation is any different - Mom thinks we coughed up more but that is better than getting all stopped up from them.

Rosa and Mamacita look fabulous.

So we give them lots of thumbs up!

Two Spot and Only want more Hairball treats!
P.S. Mom apologizes for not getting by to visit - she has been sick since Straw Hat Day.  Hopefully tomorrow she will feel up to blogging.

Happy Straw Hat Day - May 15

Tabitha models her lovely white straw hat with pink ribbon.

 Today is National Straw Hat Day - the day when you put your felt hats away and take out you cool and comfy straw hats for the summer season.

None of us are real big on wearing clothes, props or hats so Mom did her best to dress us in straw hats.  Tabitha and Lily were willing to cooperate but Two Spot just hid under his hat!

Lovely Lily tries out her "Come hither look".

 Ever wonder how certain hat sayings came into being - well here are the origins of some:

Hold On To Your Hat(s)
A warning that some excitement or danger is imminent. When riding horseback or in an open-air early automobile, the exclamation 'hold on to your hat' when the horse broke into a gallop or the car took-off was certainly literal.

Two Spot hides under his!
Mad As A Hatter
Demented, go mad. Hat-makers use to inhale fumes from the mercury that was part of the process of making felt hats. Not recognizing the violent twitching and derangement as symptoms of a brain disorder, people made fun of affected hat-makers, often treating them as drunkards. In the U.S., the condition was called the 'Danbury Shakes,' as Danbury, Connecticut was a hat-making center. Mercury is no longer used in the felting process and hat-making is safe. 

At the Drop of a Hat
Fast. Dropping a hat, can be a way in which a race can start, instead of a starting gun for example. Also, a hat is an apparel item that can easily become dislodged from its wearer. Anyone who wears hats regularly has experienced the quickness by which a hat can fly off your head.  

Bee In Your Bonnet
An indication of agitation or an idea that you cannot let go of and just have to express. (A real bee in one's bonnet certainly precipitates expression.)
(from the Hat Trivia page)

So grab a straw hat and have a great day today!

Angel Yoko's Gotcha Day and Mother's Day

Sweet Yoko last summer.
 Today would have been Angel Yoko's 21st Gotcha Day.  She left us for the Bridge just 5 months ago.  We miss her so much and still look for her at the foot of the bed where she always slept.  Yoko was special and is forever connected to Mother's Day because she gift from Pop to Mom back in 1993. 

Yoko when we first got her.

She was very ill when we got her - none of her food would stay down - she either vomited or had diarrhea.  Mom made up a substitute for her cat mom the vet they went and Mom was right - Yoko had a parasite.  Once she was treated she was fine and gained weight.

She became a big girl - bigger than her sis Chica.  Yoko was a mellow, sweetie who loved to greet the peeps who came to visit.  She would crawl on their lap and just settle in, soaking up the scritches. Yoko loved bags, finding odd places to nap and eating cream cheese. 

We know she is happy, healthy and with her sister Chica, Mom's Mom and Pop's Mom celebrating a wonderful Mother's Day at the Bridge.  We will always love you Yoko!  Happy Mother's Day to all Moms everywhere, human and other!

Yoko loved to lay like this as a youngster
