Mom here. The Furry Bambinos graciously allowed me to post today in honor of Clyde’s Adoption Anniversary. Sixteen years ago today, David and I adopted Clyde from an acquaintance. I wrote a bit about his adoption a few months ago, when I wrote about the one year anniversary of Clyde’s going to the Rainbow Bridge.

Although we adopted him as a tiny kitten, Clyde grew to be a very large cat. You could tell even when he was a kitten that he would get big. Just look at the size of those paws!

The nickname “Little One” we gave him as a kitten seemed odd once Clyde got to be full-grown, but we still called him that.

Clyde, along with Mohawk, were the original “Furry Bambinos”.

Yesterday afternoon, Mommy put my Red Evil Collar Monster on me. The one with the leash attached. Mommy picked me up and carried me to the Grey Room That Moves! She opened the door, and carried me inside. Daddy got in another door. Mommy handed me to Daddy, where I sat in his lap.

At last, I was going on a Big Adventure!

Goin

Well, Daddy and Mommy came along too. They sat up front. I sat in the back where I could explore.

Mmmmm …. the floor isn

We traveled for a very long time. I looked out the back windows of the room that moves.

Quit stopping and starting!  It

Sometimes I sat on Daddy’s lap, but I liked to sit in the back window the best.

We finally got to our destination:

Time to Party!

We were going to a party! Good thing I was dressed in my tuxedo and nail caps for the occasion! “Coventry Cats” was celebratifying their 20 year birthday! Wow, that’s a lot older than me. Meerkat and I aren’t even 1 year old yet!

Mommy helped me see up high on the shelfs!

There was cake…

Big cake for all the

… and food …

Lots of stinky goodness to choose from!  Fancy brands here!

… and a wall of toys!

Hmmmmm … which toy should I pick?

There were even woofies in the store! What were they doing in a place called Coventry Cats? I thought that the woofies were a bit rude. I had to hiss at one to tell him to stay out of my personal space!

I even got to meet a woofie!  I didn

Naturally, everyone I met thought I was the best looking cat they had ever met! I got lots of scritches and pats on the head. The owner lady of the store was very nice to me. Daddy wasn’t sure if I was going to be allowed in the store. Well, duh! It’s a store specifically for cats!

The nice lady who owns Coventry Cats gave me scritches!

I sniffed the whole place over from head to tail. There were lots of interesting places to explore.

Lots of great things to sniff!

After the party, we got back into the Grey Room That Moves and headed back home.

Time to go home!

This time, it was raining, so I sang in the rain!

"La La La La La … I am the greatest cat of all

I really liked to sit in the back window.

This is comfy!

When we got back home, I ran into the kitchen to get a bite to eat! Adventures sure can make a cat hungry!

mommy and daddy keep saying “paws for a cause” over and over! so i asked them what it means.

they explained that the rescue organization that helped us find mommy and daddy is called paws. it stands for “public animal welfare society”.

paws helps find good homes for kitties and woofies in our area. panda bear and i (and our 6 other litter mates) were fostered by a very nice lady who helped take good care of us while we were waiting for our furrever homes.

padre was fostered by diana and her husband chris at their house while he waited for his furrever home.

mommy explained that “paws for a cause” is today’s event is to help other kitties and woofies find their furrever homes. any funds raised go toward helping pay medical expenses for the kitties and woofies in the foster care program.

so i guess that means that mommy and daddy will be flirting with other kitties today. hmmm. i’m not sure how i feel about that. i mean, of course i want the other kitties to find great furrever homes, i just don’t want them to join us here in ours. i hope that doesn’t sound too selfish.

Mom here: I hope that David and I don’t wind up bringing home anyone else! My asthma doctor is not happy with me as it is… Oh well. That hasn’t stopped me before!

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!

On behalf of The Furry Bambinos, I want to wish all of our Mommies and GrandMommies a wonderful day! Be sure to give your Human Mom lots of love today!

In honor of Mother’s Day, we thought we would post about our Mommy’s Mommy, AKA “Gramma”. This is a picture of Gramma sitting on her Quilt! This is the Quilt that Millie’s Mom made!

Gramma on Her Quilt

Isn’t this a cute picture? Doesn’t Gramma look adorable on her Quilt? Isn’t the Quilt that Millie’s Mom made bee-yoo-tifull? See this next photo for a close-up view:

Close-up of Gramma

Happy Mother’s Day, Gramma!

In other news, we each gave Mommy a Mother’s Day Card. And Daddy made cinnamon rolls with sticky icing for breakfast! We plan on spending the day snuggling with Mommy as much as possible!

Happy Mother’s Day Efurryone! Have a wonderful day!

oooh i knew it! they were flirting with other kitties!

on saturday, mommy and daddy went to this event called “paws for a cause”. i wrote about it on saturday morning. it was an event meant to help kitties and woofies find their furrever homes. (there were 5 kittens and 4 woofies adopted.)

well, just look at these photos!

this is mommy holding a cute little tuxie kitten. in the background, another paws volunteer is bottle feeding a baby kitten that was only about 4 weeks old!

i had a feeling that there was going to be some flirting going on. i could tell by the looks on their faces, not to mention the fur on their clothes!

of course, i am happy that other kitties and woofies were adopted to their furrever homes! but did mommy and daddy have to flirt with other kitties and woofies quite so much?!

in other news, kelly cat inquired as to when panda bear’s and my birthday is. i don’t remember exactly the day we were born, but mommy was told that it was in the middle of may. so panda bear and i will be celebrating our very first birthday this friday, may 16! more later about the party!

Mom Here: When we adopted Panda Bear and Meerkat back in October, they both still looked like kittens. We were told that they were born in the middle of May 2007. So we have chosen to recognize their birthdays today, May 16. Both Panda Bear and Meerkat have grown so much since we adopted them!

Brother and Sister

Now, I’ll hand things over to “The Kittens” as we call them! Happy Birthday!

Time for my closeup!

hi efurryone! it’s our birthday today! mommy and daddy are home from work today, so they will be here to give us lots of love shnugglies. and lots of temptations. please stop by to party with us if you can teleport over!

Hi! Panda Bear here!!! I’ve been asking Mom if now I can finally do a “Mancat Monday” post since I am one year old now!! Woo-hoo!!

Anyway, teleport on over for a nip-filled day of fun and Thundering Herds of Elephants games! I’ll make sure that Mom opens whatever flavor of stinky goodness is your preference!

Thanks to efurryone who gave us birthday wishes yesterday! It was great that so many of you made it to the party! And we got to meet some new kitties, too!

Thanks to efurryone who partied with us, for the kind birthday wishes, and:

Queen Snickers and Empress for bringing niptinis and crab puffs;
Junior for bringing some primo nip;
The Artsy Catsy staff who brought All-Natural Temptations.

Before the party started, Mom noticed how long our nails were. Rats. So we all got a pedicure! Hoomph! And on our birthday, too!

Then, Daddy opened the windows so we could sniff the fresh air. Do not worry about Padre’s head. He still has it. Padre just has his head tilted in ecstasy from sniffing all the outside smells.

This is the birthday card I got from the fambly:

Check out the neat presents we got:

the loot haul

We got a whole bunch of toy mousies:

mousies!

I got a nifty new harness that is a “walk in” type. I gave it a good sniff.

my new harness

It is not comfortable to sit in, but it is easier to walk around in than the other harness that Mom got me. In this picture, you can see the goatee that I am growing, now that I am a ManCat.

my new harness is uncomfortable

We got a way cool magic wand thingy! It’s got red and shiny stuff that is fun to bat around. Even Padre had fun with it!

playing game!
