Absolutely nothing happened at Chez catbird today. :flail:

Okay, something did happen. How can we avoid it in a house full of fur?

Sweet kitties! Lady is napping.

Muffin is nearly there too.
5D353A3A-DF57-4BF9-BF1D-4389277B3EE5.jpeg

Ready for bed BJ?
0CF5EF13-CAFC-4CC4-8270-BFAD5A24EDF5.jpeg

You look sleepy.
41DAA7A8-4ABF-4273-92D8-AD15CB574815.jpeg

Lay your little head down.
B9064C1C-1A96-4AD8-AA77-6C1AACA4072A.jpeg

Awww. He did!
2FC7677E-FA77-40B1-825B-B89C1B7561B4.jpeg

Bedtime Whistle!
43BF1F68-1EE2-450A-B220-4BC341E68A9E.jpeg

Purry and Bonjure are sound asleep.Yeah. All is quiet now. Time for my shower.
25EAD199-745E-4626-90E3-A1031283B2CF.jpeg

Then I return.
Lady!
F605EF03-8597-43CC-AF50-FC0DB2B0461C.jpeg

Hmmmm. I’m left looking at a picture of the Cheetos cheetah.
120A6FB5-C194-48C7-845A-FB9FD0C0BA1A.jpeg

Then I hear crunch.
3966A82A-3183-400F-813D-E6231A6DF751.jpeg

Muffin!
A4E4A0CA-BC0E-49A9-B5E0-53FFA3A80D74.jpeg

Give me that!
F8D61D5C-6A78-4A5A-B35A-920D68A800FD.jpeg

I started looking around.
Banjo, did you snitch that?
061F3B43-2E6C-40D5-95AF-191AED0A8D85.jpeg

No. I would never eat that!
CE7224FA-AEA5-4529-BAB8-1368B176A97F.jpeg

Kodiak? I thought it was a big orange worm mom.
4D805781-29EB-47E4-8D26-07C66460161D.jpeg

Well, aren’t you the sneaky one.
8546A590-76D9-480E-9168-83C38EEFC91C.jpeg

:lol: I nearly missed this!
1AB29D75-7F26-41F3-B4F1-510249A333A4.jpeg

Whistle hid his in plain sight! It matches the ball tower quite well.
E75527F0-89D3-40F0-969A-5A83BFB1E876.jpeg

Normally I would say Banjo did it but Lady his in the bookshelf. Guilty party? Lol
2739181A-D50C-4A6D-BCED-4CE576454DC2.jpeg

I better check the other kitties. BJ got up as I entered to get a snack......
F9B480BF-C99C-40AF-9AE9-549935F6DCB2.jpeg

He should have kept laying on it!
99643B4E-102D-4A11-9696-94A2F050A4BB.jpeg

Okay. I confiscated all the Cheetos. Sorry kitties! I’m going to bed!

I went back into the other room and.....
Caught Banjo happily licking the cheese. :lol:
4EC2D558-A84B-4B48-8B68-7E89688B4D54.jpeg


I forgot to check under the sofa. I found two more cheese puffs stashed there. :lolup::kitty: She’s always one step ahead of me.
I guess I just can’t buy anything that has any form a cat on the package. No more Frosted Flakes and no more Cheetos unless they are under lock and key.
I really am going to bed now. Tired but still have to smile at crafty kitties.
Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

We’re under free watch tonight. I went out and saw Froggie staying warm under the light. Maybe he’ll get a few more bugs before going to find shelter tonight. He’s been staying in the old kitty/frog house and has lots of Froggie friends there. They could go down under the steps too if they want. I think being next to the heat coming out of the doors may help them. It’s burrowing time for them now. We should get visits on warmer days though.

I had to wash all the kitty bedding today but the kitties objected to being roused out of their warm spots. Lol Every time I put a blanket down to gather another, I turned to find kitties had reclaimed them. I finally lured most of the kitties out. What happens when you close the door to the cat room?

I didn’t want to give up my blanket.
40ACA907-32B9-4408-BC6B-1B36D34054C9.jpeg

I’m not looking at you right now. You tricked us.
637151A4-2E4E-40EA-B6B5-BEB014A62D76.jpeg

Why? Why would you take my blanket?
8C091755-A7D7-4BAA-82B7-170AAF490A5A.jpeg

This isn’t nearly as snuggly.
4BDFD2CB-00E3-4382-8636-C448951374DE.jpeg

I’m claiming the sofa.
C97480CE-DFC9-4F3F-8B70-776B57B39180.jpeg

You shut BJ out? Don’t take my bed too!
8E0BE4F7-C494-4827-8319-EED8EC9DC465.jpeg

Lol I’m being watched through the curtains.
980C0FD0-E5A0-497F-93F1-88EB4FDDB201.jpeg

Huh. As soon as she realized I saw her, Banjo looked away.
3B6A2C1A-2924-46E2-AA0F-9EE7933D0C25.jpeg

What happens when you reopen the door just a little bit?

What did you do Mom?
A33A8AFF-6BA3-41FB-BA0D-4A725E325159.jpeg

I’m sniffing before entering.
51B67826-7F64-425F-A5A1-4D9CE4D9432F.jpeg

Watch out guys. No telling what she did. There could be another creature in there.
2D1F221B-EC99-4081-BB52-D2714CD969A3.jpeg

I don’t see anyone new. Rats. I was going to catch it.
560FB5D6-5D80-4486-9439-977BBA440691.jpeg

Let me see.
FC033654-DC0D-4D03-AF42-D2FDBEB77E5B.jpeg

Thank goodness. I was afraid she’s let another cat in.
3B1622F4-8469-4CCC-9A7C-E3D69333B985.jpeg

Are you sure?
85B86A6A-F262-4667-BF5B-F0C0375D37E4.jpeg

I’m a feral, I’m gonna sniff check too.
7C29D3DB-3B1F-4EF5-A8F4-87AA929C37DA.jpeg

Nothing in the box.
C8E08A5A-EC7D-43AD-B953-216A62ABFA74.jpeg

Help me scent mark Whistle.
90029D52-47F2-4C91-A2D1-CEC01A5670F4.jpeg

Hey....... the blankets are missing.
A05A2EC9-A093-4401-BF2A-EFA819379A69.jpeg

Bring them back mom!
2EB8C8BA-D7A5-418F-B1C7-CA5B9E00FBAA.jpeg

I don’t have a cat blanket? Where am I supposed to go?
8C471161-FF57-43B9-B2A0-DC4D928E9D7A.jpeg

I don’t like changes.
97A45AE1-BC0E-490B-9C84-0A1F8AA66AA2.jpeg

This is suspicious.
DCF1BFAB-2507-4296-BC90-F4F0D40B15C3.jpeg

Everything is moved.
E4BB17F2-FE59-4C84-8077-1C83E73D83BA.jpeg

I knew I should have stayed in bed.
A8F41AA6-1045-4A29-8CD7-0555BB8FDD7A.jpeg


I liked it out here without the others.
05968297-BBFB-422C-86F0-77A1ABA73B68.jpeg

I think you should shut them back out again mom!
06B2BDB3-7946-4D4E-96AB-0897B6ED2D35.jpeg

:flail:Ah Kodiak! She always wants to be top cat.
I live with a suspicious bunch. Lol Change is not something that kitties enjoy unless it’s a new toy.
The dryer has stopped now so it’s time to put the blankets back. I’ll have a trail of kitties following me and scrambling for warm blankies. I think all will be forgiven. :lol:
Have a great night everyone. Don’t change anything! The Clowder loves you just like you are! :lovecat3::happycat:

Tonight, just out of curiosity, I tried reversing having the kitties shout in the cat room instead of out. Bonjure was the last kitty in and his tail is all fluff!! I had wondered if they would prefer being further away from mopping. Nope! :lol: As much as they dislike the water, the dislike feeling,“ left out” even more.

I peeped through the curtain over the door.
07C2B8F7-B635-481E-B6F4-037331416E5E.jpeg

It looks like they are waiting in line!
F86D6242-4F52-493D-96D1-76BDB87013EA.jpeg

I opened the door a little and ....
2A82C3D5-708B-4D53-A6A2-2E7F69C42749.jpeg

There was a stampede!
54BA5D9C-C207-4679-BA6F-555E41B92E6D.jpeg

Coming into an interior room brings less hesitation that going to an exterior one. Even the cat room!
00696931-8BE8-4FF7-9A41-BA54A4493BA2.jpeg

If you were watching the cats in the background..... they all became aware of the open door quickly.
51087960-FA8B-4E93-8CA1-4572131A0951.jpeg

Background empty! Lol
7380F4DD-27FD-46AE-9786-B61B47E0E061.jpeg

Last one Flowers?
86891B6D-578C-410C-8697-F2B227AA90C7.jpeg

No! Stop shutting the door! :rolleyes: I might be in trouble.Oops.
7E9C7DC2-AF1E-435C-B14F-9827C2101AAC.jpeg

I didn’t like that Mom!
0AB5EADE-2AC4-4D7C-BA75-29C93C3BBAE2.jpeg

Come on Lady, let’s snuggle.
FE524AD2-22A9-4D40-A56D-38538171056F.jpeg

This is much better!
A034AB32-DC61-4AAC-9F6E-2D871DD89853.jpeg

Hmmmm? Early bedtime?
53B437E5-EFB3-4AA0-A41B-B7E6A0AE75C1.jpeg

I think so!
FEF197E6-885F-4188-A613-78F0B12DE207.jpeg

Awwww. Now I know how to get kitties settled for the night.
1E2A2647-345A-4EE5-B3C0-62809643AFE1.jpeg

Now on to folding the laundry. Whoa! The laundry moved!
DC892786-7A76-41B0-800F-D2C86DA410DF.jpeg

Hehehehe! You only thought you shut all the kitties out!
469BD28A-F124-4DE8-92FB-DB46E4C1A4FE.jpeg

Muffin wins! :flail:

Cats are so good at hiding. The next, time I need to count kitties!

Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

Boy are they ever! I lost Finn for quite a while yesterday - I searched high and low, and I still don't know where he was hiding! I can't even keep track of two cats. I don't know how you keep track of your clowder, I really don't.
By the way, adorable pics of Lady and Banjo - so sweet. Lady looks tiny!

I know how well they can hide. They are the masters of all hiding creatures. The thing that gets me it that when we are looking for them, they are looking at us! :lol: I always feel like I hear kitty giggles.
Lady is one of the smallest kitties here. She’s petite and very feminine in behavior. How she managed to have such gigantic boys is beyond me. Her daughter Muffin weighs a few more pounds than Lady as well. She’s my little Fluff Lady. Thus the name. Lol
Very glad Finn turned up. I’d be willing to bet that Charlie knew exactly where he was the entire time. Hide and Seek Mom!

I posted in the birthday thread, but thought I'd also post here. Today is Ambassador Ruby's 6th Gotcha Day.

This is one of the 1st pics I took of her while she was exploring her new home.

Happy Gotcha/birthday Ruby!!!! You are the gift! I love seeing the first day exploration. The photo fro this morning is purrfect. She’s such a beautiful girl. I know we can never “pose” a cat but she certainly gave us a darling pose in that shot. Thank you Ruby!

Now......ask her what her beauty secret is for staying young. She doesn’t look six years older. I do! :lol: If it’s the cat food, I’m just going to keep looking older. Nah...... must be the love!:lovecat2::winkcat:

N NY cat man Awwww! Bashful was being bashful? Cats can make us think they have vanished! I’’be even worried that someone slipped out.
I have a recliner too. It’s now in the room the Bengal boys prefer. It’s a great hiding place. I never let company sit there though, just in case a kitty is in there! Lol I kind of gave it to the kitties. The boys are all in it now. No room left for me! :dunno: I get the stink eye if I try to move someone over. Naturally. It’s the softest chair in the house!:lol:

Buffster7 Buffster7 I can just picture Charlie keeping Finn as prisoner. “Stay there! You belong to me!” Then he gave you a totally innocent look? Yep! I know the look. :lol:

I worked outside some and I don’t know if it’s the weather or an allergy but the kitties noticed. Lol Gotta love the care of a cat!

Just Banjo at first.
0C373F22-3C8B-4154-B73D-3DFDE76AB644.jpeg

Then a serious look from BJ.
11771894-1D9A-424B-8EEE-C8998149E377.jpeg

Thoughtful maybe.
36C579D6-DE39-428D-A800-BE2DECEB8EE1.jpeg

Keeping me warm.
C9E264EE-3313-49BE-A8F2-72E734E7D04C.jpeg

He even answered the phone for me! :lol: I don’t think my step sister was amused. Perhaps just not surprised? Lol
123B2AA7-5C6E-47EF-B53C-D45C1C425286.jpeg

Banjo gave Muffin a dirty look for knocking things off the table.
C39A00DB-D6B5-46A5-9DAC-3FDCEAECC81C.jpeg

Bj thought that he could pull me back up by my fingers.
19BE3D8E-A3E4-4884-A8F6-E411E0C25403.jpeg

Nice try though BJ! How about a treat?
A0E54661-DF58-4FC0-8F55-3F7B2836D39F.jpeg

Treat?
AA8391EE-ADB9-4A90-968A-F61C3F44E5D6.jpeg

Ummmm!
AC418692-6BDB-44CC-A6C9-1F72CF30CE34.jpeg

Uh oh. Flowers is watching with her critical look.
65C59C93-4357-48C0-BD66-81238E422992.jpeg

Hear that BJ?
A5852B8F-980A-4835-A5A2-DD679408DAF5.jpeg

She called the girls. Lol
0FFA6216-D305-4746-9803-FD3BF7D8ACAF.jpeg

The nursing staff.
3E11BA1C-25A7-4B30-AE8A-06CF337AB5D1.jpeg

Hey Flowers!
AEFFE985-F885-4C83-A4BA-90C932F5612E.jpeg

Coming to help?
2FEDB541-4FC0-418A-A6C2-8290D5C2AA14.jpeg

Then it happened. I sneezed.
FA4CDE1C-DCFD-4209-A7BC-6A522BC0E62A.jpeg

Flowers immediately Head butted BJ.
88036E22-7B03-469A-99BD-D4286D38D2F2.jpeg

Not just with affection....
07CFC063-E311-4EE1-ADB7-FD229DB62A35.jpeg

She began pushing against him.
F3ACCDE9-11FA-476A-9F05-762301137427.jpeg

Trying to get closer to Mom?
0347570B-AFB6-4DE2-9E33-6A4EFD7F5213.jpeg

Nope! Taking over! Mom needs the girls.
D4A3C7AC-5734-4B62-9809-F051A0A9E6FC.jpeg

Ha! The girls came too! First Flowers, then Kodiak. Poor BJ got pushed off the sofa entirely!
D8269D0E-B7D4-4355-B1AD-1E6E58312E0E.jpeg

I ended up with a lap full of Flowers, Kodiak, Muffin and Banjo! I have to admit, very cuddly group.........
67DB8152-3E9E-41F1-9250-84523B112327.jpeg

But then I got ,”the look “when I had to get up! I guess my nurses didn’t approve. :lol:
6BB2EDDA-A34A-425A-AF21-DD2CE4439A17.jpeg

When I returned BJ took full advantage of the open lap.
9DA24968-EB85-4FC2-97C1-3E658770A16B.jpeg

Not happy about the sneezes.......
5BE97BA3-720D-4B87-A0FF-F598CF4964DE.jpeg

And not willing to be pushed out again so quickly.....
A6735B76-3271-4819-ADF1-91392EC0570B.jpeg

He arrived with help.
2818A162-308E-44C3-88AE-71CAE7DE7D96.jpeg

He brought out the big muscle. Lol Dolly had his back. That never happens!
ADA77737-C66A-44FF-A879-5821702C7B68.jpeg

BJ seemed rather pleased with himself! :thumbsup:
F1C6AFAC-4C37-4166-8FFC-D28F3FC80B7E.jpeg

Score one for BJ. :flail:
195FEF7A-FA2B-4A85-A511-E68DEC414E0B.jpeg

BJ has learned something new. The funniest thing is that Dolly did watch his back and swat Flowers and the girls away. It’s pretty amazing to watch the interactions between the cats. Who knew a cat could get back up?


Banjo remained impartial. She only gets involved in the most important decisions.
705C1314-0AEA-48A0-84A6-ED36BCDF5EB5.jpeg

She’d make a good President as long as no Cheetos are involved.
:kitty:;)

The Clowder and I wish Ruby a very Happy Gotcha Day! :redheartpump::clap2:

Have a warm and cuddly night everyone!
:catlove:

Yesterday's pic was another of me sticking the camera in her face after just waking her up. The ball helped her look a bit less annoyed sleepy. Cats do have a knack of staying young looking, don't they :winkcat:

Sounds warm and cuddly. Though possibly a tad weighty. :catrub:

surya surya So glad to see you and the babies! You know...... your house looks kind of familiar. Oh! Pillows, blankets, kitties....... looks like my house! :lol: Love it! The kitties look so happy. The little red hearts remind me of Wanda Heart when she was a little younger. All poor, sweet babies. Thank goodness they are with you. Sending you all a Clowder full of purrs!
