The past few weeks have been busy and stressful here at Casa Furry Bambino, but that’s another blog post.

Today, I want to purrsonally thank all of you who voted for me in the rounds of Kitty Fight Club.  I appreciate your votes and kind words of support.  There were some very tough competitors that I faced, including Scylla, Asia, Snafu, and Sweet Pea.  Congratulations to Sweet Pea!  Like all of the kittehs in the competition, she is really adorable, and I am glad that she won.   All of the kittehs who competed are cute and adorable and sweet in their own way.

I want to thank Mommy and Daddy who emailed lots of family members and friends to ask for their votes.  Daddy even posted about me on his facebook thingy!  Mommy and Daddy love me, and they love all the Furry Bambinos.

A big Thank You to all of Mommy and Daddy’s relatives and friends who took the time to vote!  Thanks to those of you who didn’t think it was too dorky to vote for a kitteh in a photo contest.

As readers of our blog know, my sister Caramel and I are what is known as “Failed Fosters”.  That means that we started out as foster kittehs, with the original intent of being adopted to a loving family through the Public Animal Welfare Society, or PAWS, here in Northeast O-Hi-O.  After hanging out here for several months, getting schlepped to several adoption events, having an adoption application put in for me, and then retracted (thank goodness!), Mommy and Daddy decided to adopt Caramel and me themselves.  This is probably the single best thing in the world at which to be a failure.

Because of our family’s continued involvement with PAWS, foster kittehs come and go here at Casa Furry Bambino.  Daisy, Bo, and Luke are now in their furrever homes!  The director of PAWS emailed all the PAWS volunteers to ask for their support for me in Kitty Fight Club!  A big thank you to Amy and to all of the PAWS volunteers for the work they do, and for voting for me!

Last, but not least, thank you to all my blogging friends!  At times like this, when I’m feeling a little down and sorry for myself, I remember all the good in the world, and all the good in the Cat Blogosphere.

Greetings furriends!  Happy Daddy’s Day to all of the Daddies out there!

As you know, we love our Daddy very much.  He feeds us, he scoops our poops, and he cleans up our horks.  Dad puts up with all of the fosters that Mom insists we take in.

Recently, Daddy has been very busy working for the U.S. Census.  He has been a crew leader and it was his job to sit in McDonald’s several hours a day.  We have no idea why the Census is so interested in McDonald’s.  Maybe it had something to do with revising their “billions and billions served” sign.  Sometimes he sat in two different McDonald’s in the same day.

So you know that us Furry Bambinos want to show Dad our appreciation for all he does.  I have been helping Dad with his paperwork as Crew Leader.

Caramel and I assist Dad with organizing his Census binders.

I have inspected the binders.

Padre did his part by horking up a hairball on the dining room carpet.  This morning.

Meerkat did some serious shedding in the fambly room.

And Cookie taught the fosters how to claw the furniture!

Speaking of fosters, we told you that Daisy, Bo, and Luke are now in their furrever homes.  Well, now we have Boo …

and Shadow …

AKA The Itteh Bittehs …

as well as Antoinette …

Notice how much Antoinette looks like Meerkat?  Antoinette showed up last Sunday, the day of the Tony Awards.  She knocked at our back door.  Seriously, she did.  She had to jump a 6 foot tall fence to do it, too!

So it has been busy here at Casa Furry Bambino!

Happy Daddy’s Day!

Oh, our hearts are aching, and our eyes are leaking as we write this.

We just got the sad, sad news that Tammy Faye passed away on Friday, from heart failure.

Tammy Faye’s family is devastated.

As you may know, Mom and Dad are good friends with Tammy Faye’s fambly.  Aunt Deb is our regular kitteh sitter. Mom and Dad visited Miss Tammy Faye when her fambly was away.

Miss Tammy Faye liked our Mom …

… but she had a major crush on our Dad.

This is one of our favorite photos of Tammy Faye. She and our Dad were making eyes at each other.

Tammy Faye’s family really needs your purrs right now.

Please leave your condolences for Tammy Faye’s fambly here.

Tammy Faye, you will be missed!

Please save a sunspot for us at The Bridge.

Purrrrsss …
