This is the Life~Meet Tasha and MamaKitty~Wish I was a Cat!!

Say hello to my Sweet Babies. We still have temps at 10 degrees but The good lord has Blessed us with Sunshine today and my darlins are sunning themselves in the window. Wish I fit on that window sill I'd like to soak in all that warm sunshine..

Meet Tasha~ she just seen a Bird at the feeder. She does this silly thing where she quivers her mouth, swats her tail back and forth and makes a sound like a baby crying every time she gets excited about seeing a new Bird out there...
It totally cracks me up when she does this.
Tasha Came to live with me when she was small enough to fit into a Tea cup. A friend brought her to me after my neighbor killed my cats. She found her in a drain tile. She was maybe 4 weeks old and so tiny. She's a lover. her favorite thing to do is put her paws around my neck and suckle on my neck and kneed my back.
 Meet MamaKitty my untouchable ferrel turned total lover after 3 years of loving patience with her..Mama nearly lost her life when she was beaten by a neighbor and her pelvis was broken. Today she is a happy healthy house Kitty. Today she can't get enough lovin, hugs and pets from mommy. What life she leads..One of the happiest Kitty's I've ever owned.
Queen Tasha and Gentle Mama
Tasha bossing Mama
Of course we must not forget
"Puddles" my faithful & loving Sheltie
I'm sitting here waiting on the shop to warm up so I can go create...Decided to read my mail. I got the cutest email from a fellow Sheltie owner and cat lover. It is so cute I just had to share it with all of you especially those of you who have Critter Children.
I think most of you will agree this about sums it up for all us critter owners

Enjoy the smile as you read this ...and have a great day!! Be sure to hug your pet today!

Warm Blessings ...I'm off to create some new Eye Candy for you all!!

Dear Dogs and Cats:

       The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

       The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run. ; )

       I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

       For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, and try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1 They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Normally come when called
5. Never ask to drive the car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't want to wear your clothes
10. Don't need a 'gazillion' dollars for college.

And finally,
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

 Post at the bottom of the fridge at critter eye level!!!


  1. Tonya
    Your cats are adorable, I love their stories!
    Your dog such a pretty!
    Wonderful post! so true isn't it~ I love the "Fur~niture" too funny!LOL
    thanks for a giggle,

  2. Your fur babies are adorable..We have 2 Ferrel cats that are 7 years old and they won't go to most strangers and it has just been maybe 3 years that they started coming by us. I was thinkink last night about what my next post would be about and pretty much decided it would be my pups and then the next one about my American Eskimos and then maybe my 3 cats : I love reading about other bloggers always brings a smile to my face...I enjoyed your story about your FUR babies :)

  3. I've been patiently trying to turn a few ferrels. Two girls I've won over for the most part, one is just a stubborn boy. Now there is another momma and her cutie baby hanging around. My three have generously shared their house with them over these cold days. I wish I could bring them inside, but I'm afraid of the damage they could do if they decide they aren't going to use a litter box.

  4. They are all sweet! I am amazed at how cruel people can be toward animals. I always think if they do it to an animal, how are they with people?
    Zipper likes watching the bird too, he likes to hug the window like Spiderman! LOL! He's funny, then he takes off down the hallway!
    I am glad that you were able to rescue them.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hi Tonya:) Ahh, a fellow cat lover. We currently have seven, and have had cats for near 40 years. I've got a suckler too, Hermes. Some of ours do the chatter at the birds too. They are special and so adorable. Bless your heart for caring for them.


I'm so Blessed that you stopped by & shared your thoughts with me today! Reading your comments always makes me Smile!
