Fosters

8

Hi Everyfurry!!  It’s Cookie the foster kitten here!

I have been enjoying living here at Casa Furry Bambino with my sister Caramel.  At first Caramel and I stayed in our apartment upstairs, but now we are free to roam about the house.

It has been fun getting to try out new and creative napping locations.  Recently I took a nap on the big people bed, and the pawparazzi snapped a photo of me:

Apparently, this postion is known as “The Full Monty”, so I will enter this photo in Monty Q’s contest.

In other news, I am a little bit worried.  Apparently, Mommy likes to (gasp!) eat cookies!  And she likes to eat caramel, too!  She has never tried to nibble us, but I am still a bit nervous.

Honestly, ya’d think they never get fed!

When the fosters first got here, we got fed separately.  We big kittehs got fed downstairs in the kitty feeding room (AKA fambly room) in peace and privacy.  The fosters got fed upstairs in their room.

However, now that the fosters Cookie and Caramel Hoover and Oreck have been mingling with us for the past month, we all get fed downstairs. Either the COG (Can Opener Guy) or the COL (Can Opener Lady) prepares our food for us in the kitchen. The big kittehs eat in the kitty feeding room. The fosters are fed in the human feeding room.

Well, we big kittehs like to TASTE our food, savor it, ya know?  But Hoover and Oreck just suck down their food and then come over to our bowls for more.  While we’re still eating!!

Just read these quotes from the Oreck and Hoover web sites:

It [Oreck] is so light and not hard to carry. It has very good suction, and I feel like it is getting my rug clean. It adjusts from room to room automatically.

… great performance in a little package! … it [Hoover Nano Lite] has great suction …

… my Oreck is so easy to use and light weight and feels as though it is self propelled.

Tell me kittehs, does this describe Caramel and Cookie, or what?

if you give Cookie a mouse, she won’t let it go.  she won’t share it with the other kittehs.  she won’t follow the protocol here at casa furry bambino, which is to SHARE the mouse.  the protocol is that we each get a turn to play with the mouse, bat it around, carry it in our teeths, you know, rough it up a little.

instead, if you give Cookie a mouse, she won’t let it go.  when the other kittehs surround her asking for their turn, Cookie will hold onto the mouse and growl.

The moral to the story is don’t give Cookie a mouse.

in other news, we are ashamed to admit that we missed giving our friend Miss Tammy Faye a proper birthday greeting.  sorry that it’s late, but here’s wishing her the best!

Hi everyfurry!  It’s me, Cookie!  My sister Caramel and I are back from our stay at boarding school at Parma PetSmart. Caramel and I shared a room.

PapaDave came and took us home on Saturday evening.  When we got home, he gave each of us a bath. This is me during my bath:

PapaDave used sweet smelling baby shampoo!  This is Caramel getting her bath.  She does not look very happy, because all her floofy furs got wet and made her look much smaller.

Now we look and smell all pretty.

We asked PapaDave where MamaSue was.  He said that she was visiting her Mommy, Daddy, and brother.  They live far away. Last weekend on Sunday afternoon, MamaSue came home to Casa Furry Bambino.

When she got here, she opened the door to our apartment so that we could mingle with the Big Kitties again.  I like to mingle with the Big Kitties, but sometimes they can be grumpy.  Especially the Female Big Kitty named Meerkat.  Sometimes Caramel or I accidentally run into Meerkat.  Then she gets all growly and then she smacks us and hisses.  The handsome tuxedo kitty is a little nicer, but sometimes he hisses at us too.  He and I had a nice talk one night over drinks on the dining room table.

The Big Grey Kitty is the nicest of all of the Big Kitties, but he kind of keeps to himself.  I would like to get to know him better, but I get the idea that he is spoken for.

For Father’s Day, the Big Kitties, and Caramel and me, got some nice gifts for PapaDave.  Well, Mama Sue helped.  She went to the store for us, but she brought back just what we knew PapaDave would like.  Caramel is sitting on PapaDave’s lap as he opened his gifts.

That was a cool mousie that rolls on the floor.  Panda Bear studied the mousie and discovered that it was not a real mousie, but it was still fun.

We also gave PapaDave a feather on a stick toy.  See how much fun PapaDave had playing with Panda Bear and Meerkat with it?

All five of us kittehs are in this photo.  Left to right, Meerkat, PapaDave, me (Cookie), Caramel, Padre, and Panda Bear.  MamaSue is not in the picture because she is taking the picture.  But those are her shoes next to Panda Bear.

Lots of exciting things have been happening lately, so we will post more another time.  Bye for now!

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreehhh!

sorry about that last post efurryone.  we have had two fosters boarders introoders living here at Casa Furry Bambino for the past week.  while they were here, they hijacked our blog.

mom explained to me (blah blah blah …) that these kittehs are called “fosters” and that we are “paying it forward” by letting them stay with us while they wait for their furrever home.  just like how someone fostered us furry bambinos before we came to live here.

what-evvvverrrrrrrrrrr.

the pipsqueaks are off at boarding school right now (Parma PetSmart).  yay!!!  we have the house to ourselves again!  while they were here, there was a gate at the top of the stairs, and that really put a crimp on our games of thundering herds of elephants.

panda bear and i were especially annoyed at the placement of gates that restricted our air space.  panda bear is a very clever escape artist, so the gates didn’t last long before mom and dad gave up.

the only good thing about them being here is that we scored some cool new cat toys out of the deal.

in other news, the neighbors next door have multiple barky dogs that are disturbing my beauty sleep.

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreehhh!

Greetings, everyfurry!

I am Caramel! My sister Cookie and I are staying here at Casa Furry Bambino while we await our furrever homes! We sure hope that we will be adopted together! Here’s our story so far.

It was a cold and snowy winter day when our MamaKitty was taken inside by a very nice lady and man. Our MamaKitty, unbeknownst to the lady and man, was about to have kittens! US!! And our two sisters, four girl kitties in all. Our MamaKitty, along with MamaGina (the nice lady) and PapaRomie (the nice man) took furry good care of us while we were babies.

But now we are big girls! This is my glamour shot.

And this is a photo of Cookie. You can see where her tummy was shaved. On Wednesday, Cookie and I went to the V-E-T and had our ladygardenectomies.

We are three months old now, and ready to find furrever homes. So MamaGina and PapaRomie brought us here to Casa Furry Bambino. MamaSue and PapaDave are very nice people, too. Apparently, they are part of a rescue group called PAWS.

MamaSue and PapaDave gave us our very own apartment! We have food and water, comfy beds, and did I mention toys? I just can’t get enough of this red and white sock toy. The green mousie is way cool, too. And MamaGina made sure to remember to bring us our favorite ball chew toy.

Apparently, there are three other kitties who live with MamaSue and PapaDave. We are borrowing their blog to tell the world about us! Bye for now!
