i thought that i would introduce our good friend, miss tammy faye kitty girl to you all. her mom and our mom are good friends. tammy’s mommy visited us and took care of us when our mommy and daddy were away.

this is tammy faye’s picture. mom said tammy faye got her name because of all the pretty colored furs around her eyes. isn’t tammy faye just adorable?

Miss Tammy Faye

tammy faye is a devon rex kitty, just like our friend daisy the curly cat!

Mr. Demille, I am ready for my closeup!

last weekend, tammy faye’s parents went really far away. so our mommy and daddy went to visit tammy and fed her and kept her company. tammy faye gave our mommy the perfunctory “oh you’re not my real mom” treatment.

Youre not my real mom!

but tammy faye really really liked our daddy! check out this photo of tammy flirting with daddy!

Miss Tammy Faye flirting with Daddy!

isn’t tammy sweet? she is a tiny kitty, like daisy.

Hmmmm … what

Pretty Purple for Miss Tammy Faye!

tammy does not have her own blog, but here is what she wrote as a comment about my post from a few weeks ago (about mommy and daddy flirting with other kitties):

I hope you guys don’t mind, furry feline freinds, but your ma and pa flirted with me while my beans were out of town last weekend. Your ma and pa are sure nice; you are so lucky to have them! They took real good care of me so i was not too upset when my beans came home from visiting their other beans in Chicago. So, can we just all get along and share your ma and pa’s love?

tammy faye is our friend. since we know and like her mommy, we know that tammy faye is OK for flirting with.

Sunbeam napping is the best!

in other news, we were tagged by bear and shadow for the “7 useful things” meme.  we will post our meme in the next few days!

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!

last weekend, mommy and daddy captured panda bear and me and gave us our pedicures.  we got temptations treats, so although i squirmed a lot and complained about it, the temptations almost made it all worthwhile.

however, mommy and daddy had a surprise in store for us: they put fancy nails over our now short claws on our front feets.  panda bear got to go first, and he was not very happy about getting his claws all covered up.  i kind of hung out nearby in case he wanted my moral support.

clearly, this was a mistake, i should have hidden!  the next thing i knew, i got picked up and daddy held onto me real tight while mommy put on the pretty red and green nail covers.  as i have mentioned before, i do not like to be held.  so the whole experience was not fun, even though i thought my claws looked pretty when mommy and daddy were finished.  mommy kept saying “it’s like trying to hold jello that hasn’t jelled yet”.  i dunno what she meant by that.  all i wanted was to get free of daddy’s firm grasp.

here is a photo of panda bear’s nail covers when they were first put on last weekend.  don’t the nail covers stand out nicely against panda bear’s white furs?

and here is a photo of mine, taken recently after i managed to remove some of the nail covers just fell off all by themselves:

Meerkat

so far, panda bear and i have managed to remove have had a combined total of 9 nail covers just fall off all by themselves. and to think that daddy and mommy were wondering how to get them off? however, i do think that they are festive and pretty, just not fun to get them put on.
