Toesies, Tents, and Trippin (Road that is) Tuesday

What a day! What a day! First, we found out last night that we are the very lucky winners of Skeeter and LC's 10,000th Visitor Contest and have won a tent and 2 (not 1, but 2!) pouches of Temptayshuns! Then, we were invited by our good buddy Monty to join Rocky and Lucky's Road Trip so we teleported over and have been livin' la vida loca from the road with many cool friends old and new. (It's a good thing we got invited to go on this road trip because we were so bored we were hanging out on the ironing board for kicks!) Our next stop is Daisy's house (Florida or bust) but who knows where we'll end up in between. Happy Toesies, Tents, and Tripping Tuesday to everyone!

A Cherish Meme for Our Beloved Miss Peach

Our very good friend, Chairman Mao tagged us for the Cherish Meme which was created by our other very good friend, Adan. We are so happy to be tagged for this meme because we believe that by spreading this love around the cat blogosphere, we just might be able to help Miss Peach and her mommy Karla.

Here are the rules for the Cherish meme, as written by Adan:

Hey, everyone, this time, I decide to start this cherish meme, here are some ways (depends on which person you write), and bring our love to Miss Peach~! She always makes us know what love is!

1. tell us what is the most sweetest warm thing you will do to your mommy (what is the sweetest thing that your kitty will do to you)

2. And, hug your mommy, tightly... (and, hug your kitty....tightly...)

3. Tag your good friend...

4. Leave your computer, and continuing hug each other...

So, here we go!!! This one's for you, Miss Peach!

The sweetest thing I do for my mommy and daddy is to give them kisses. I especially like to give kisses in the morning. What I do is stand up on the footboard of the bed and put my paws there so I can be closer to kissey face level and then I cry a bit like this "Meeeewww" "Meeewwww" and mommy and daddy go "What Ollie??? What sweetie?" and then they will lean in close and I will kiss them repeatedly. They frequently kiss me back, too! I love kissing!!

Mr. Chen
Well, I don't like kisses at all - nope not one bit but I like to cuddle a lot!! I always jump up on the couch and will lay with mommy and daddy and make biscuits or just lay on their bellies. But, before I settle down, I like to go between mommy and then daddy and then back to mommy and then daddy before I settle down on which of them to cuddle with. It is a very very hard decision actually and I would like to cuddle with them both but I'm not big enough to be laying half on daddy's tummy and half on mommy's tummy - maybe someday! Oh, and once I do settle down, I fall asleep very hard and they are petting me and scratching my head and my ears and I close my eyes real tight and start to tilt my head back. Sometimes I get so relaxed and sleepy I even fall off a little. When I am snuggly and happy, I am really sleeping hard cuz I feel so much love.

Ok, now we are going to tag the following kitties:

Daisy and Pixie
Honey P.
Monty Q.
Caesar and Prinnie
Any kitty (or woofie or bun) who wants to play along!!

Like Chairman Mao, we are tagging many kitties so as to really spread the love far and wide!!

Oh, excuse us, we are now going to get off the computer and go give our mommy and daddy very big hugs and cuddles and kisses.

We love you very very much, Miss Peach!! We are sending you golden healing purrs and prayers to feel better soon.

Purring for Miss Peach

We are purring and praying for our sweet friend, Miss Peach, who took a turn for the worse when her mommy went away. Maybe if we all purr long and loud enough, we just know she will be better soon! (Thank you Monty Q. for letting us use the very beautiful graphic!)

Fun Funky Friday

It's a Friday night laser show! Hope everykitty and everybean has a fantastic Fun, Funky Friday!

P.S. Please don't forget to vote for us in Skeezik's 2nd Annual Halloween Costoom Contest!!

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

We finally did it!

Mommy helped us with our costooms and we finally entered Skeezik's Halloween Costoom Contest! It was so much fun and we love seeing the other entries. Please vote for us!!

Please sign the petition

By now, most of you have heard of the brutal and tragic treatment of many animals in Puerto Rico. It pains us and our mommy and daddy so much to think that this brutality could happen. Please help animal lovers and citizens of the world join together and sign the petition to the governor of Puerto Rico, Aníbal Acevedo-Vilá to take action and enforce strict laws against animal cruelty as well as implement humane programs to ensure that this heinous act could never happen again.

We think that Cat Blogosphere community should band together to make our own statement about this awful tragedy. If you agree, leave your suggestions in the comments and we will contact Cat Blogosphere officials to see if there is something more we can collectively do.

This poor dog was one of the few survivors. He had a broken spine and other injuries as a result of being thrown over the bridge for dead

Thursday Thirteen #14

Check it out!!! We got a fancy tower/scratching post this week! Thanks mommy and daddy! Here are thirteen things we like about our new tower.

1. It is from Ikea.
2. Ikea is from Sweden. We've never been to Sweden but mommy tells us they eat lots of fish there so we think we'd like it.
3. It has scratchy surfaces.
4. There are two floors.
5. We can hide in the bottom floor.
6. We can curl up on the top floor.
7. There are soft mats on both floors.
8. We are allowed to scratch it.
9. It smells good (we just like the wicker smell).
10. We can run around it.
11. It's like tent wars but with wicker!
12. The soft mats have tails (like us!)
13. Mommy and Daddy bought it special for us!

Mancat Monday

We can't believe it's Monday already. We have had a nice weekend with mommy and daddy except for one small mishap. Poor Mr. Chen had quite a scare when mommy went to put the rug back under the litter box and she moved it but didn't realize Mr. Chen was still in it doing his ahem, business. Oh Mr. Chen was very disturbed by this whole event and went running from the bathroom. Mommy is still not sure if he's gone back in there and unfortunately, he was sort of mid-business when it happend so we think some of it got on him when the box was so rudely moved. So disturbing! Mommy tried to towel him off and calm him down but it took some time for him to get over it. Oh well... Too bad it wasn't Ollie in there - he probably would have loved the ride!

Also today is Mommy and Daddy's 2 year wedding anniversary! Here we posted some photos of them on their wedding day. This was before we were even born but we're happy they got married because now we're here, too.

Photo Hunters #6 - Smelly

This is what Ollie does when the litter box gets smelly!

Today's photo hunters is an easy one... Our litter box is definitely smelly! Mr. Chen's recent stomach woes have contributed to this greatly but Mommy and Daddy are trying him on different foods to see if they can help the situation. Since his bloods came back normal, it seems most likely to be just a food allergey so we've stopped eating our stinky goodness with brown rice in it (Wellness) and now we eat only protein (Performatrin) filled stinky goodness. It seems to be helping a little but not that much. Mommy and Daddy say they'll keep trying till they find the right kind for sensitive Mr. Chen.

Hope all kitties and everybean is having a Happy Saturday! Thanks for everyone's comments about our reunion day with Mommy and Daddy yesterday - we had so much fun!

Fun Funky Friday

This is a special fun, funky Friday because the whole family is home! Mommy and Daddy both took the day off to be home with us and play and it's very windy here so we're having so much fun looking out the windows at the leaves and the critters today. It's a perfect fall day! Hope you are all having fun, funky fall fridays, too!

Walkers raise a sneaker to honor survivors

Hi Everyone, we missed you all so much!! Sorry we've been away. Mommy finished the 3Day breast cancer walk and then had to get up very early the next day and fly to a work conference in San Diego - yuck!! But, we're all back now and can't wait to check in with you all and see how everyone is feeling (hope Miss Peach and Dragonheart are all better now) and what's new in your lives.

Here are some photos of mommy from the 3 Day walk - thank you all for supporting her. We were very proud of her even though we missed her while she was camping with the other 3Day walkers, including our Dee Ree.

Mommy's Walking 60 Miles

Sorry we haven't been around much this week to visit everyone and unfortunately, we are not going to get on the computer this weekend. Tomorrow, mommy will start Day 1 of her 60 mile walk as part of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk in Philadelphia. This is her 2nd year doing the walk and this year is very exciting because mommy's mommy is also walking and so are her dear friends Heather and Kim. We are sad we won't get to visit you all much this weekend but we are very proud of mommy and DeeRee!

In total, their team, Team Earth & State, raised over $36,000! That's a lot of money!!

Go Mommy and team Earth and State!

Beautiful Woofie in Distress

Hi Everyone, as you know we don't normally post about woofies too much but this woofie really needs some help.

Our godfather, Uncle Mike, works as a veterinary technician at the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Mike has taken on financial and legal responsibility for this woofie who was about to be euthanized but Mike could not allow it because this woofie has obviously had such a tough life and deserves the joy of a forever home now.

Percy's Story
This woofie's name is Percy and he came into the University of Pennsylvania's emergency room skin and bones, flea infested, missing half his hind leg. The injury was not new, which means some very bad person let him live like that for a while - probably in extreme pain. The wound was infected, dirty, and the tissues and nerve endings were dead by the time he came in. And, yet he came in wagging his tail. The people who brought him in were not the owners, however they knew who the owners were. They were supposed to call with the info, but of course, there was never any phone call. Percy needed a blood transfusion from the flea anemia probably as well as loss of blood from the traumatic leg amputation. The rest of his leg was amputated on Friday at Penn and he is now in a foster home at the moment.

The problem is he can't stay too long in the foster home as the foster mother has eight other dogs. We are looking to place him in a home without cats (sorry cat blogosphere but Percy needs some special help) because he seems somewhat aggressive to them. He seems ok with dogs, but probably the best environment for Percy is going to be in a single animal home for now. He has shown some aggression with dogs, but that may be because he was introduced to eight at one time and he was in a crate. We are requesting a home without kids because we don't know his background and don't want anyone to get hurt. He appears very sweet and submissive to humans and would make the right person a great dog. Percy has had a pretty horrible life up until now, and we are hoping to find him the right and best home for him and a perfect companion for someone.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in giving Percy his forever home, please email us at chenandollie [at] gmail [dot] com and we will pass along your interest immediately to our godfather Mike.

WARNING: These photos are very disturbing.

These photos are of Percy when he was first brought into the Veterinary Hosptial.

These photos are after Percy had the successful amputation of the rest of what was left of his leg. You can see he is a happy young woofie who wants to love and play.

Please help spread the word about Percy to any friends of animals circles. Percy's story has also been posted to the Pit Bull Rescue site in Philadelphia. Thanks everyone for your help!!
