Happy Nude Year!

What, Mom?

Oh.  OK.  Happy NEW Year!  We hope that all of you have a safe and nip filled holiday!

Inquiring minds have been wanting to know, what’s up with the foster situation at Casa Furry Bambino?

Well, I am pleased to inform you that little Mark joined his furrever home on December 18, 2009!  Wow, it’s already been two whole weeks with no fosters at Casa Furry Bambino!  So we Furry Bambinos thought that we should make a post about Mark.

Mark liked to nap.  Here he is borrowing my Gizzy Quilt.

Mark also liked to sleep in The Blue Bed.  The Blue Bed originally belonged to Clyde.

Mark is stretching after a good nap …

… and then Mark yawned real big.

Of all the places that Mark liked to nap, his FAVORITE spots involved Dad.  This is Mark and Dad cuddling on the big comfy chair.

This is a picture of Mark on Dad’s lap while Dad is working at the computer.

On his last day here at Casa Furry Bambino, Mark and Padre check each other out one last time.

At PetSmart, Mark studied his adoption paperwork:

Dad says farewell to the little guy:

Mark was OK as fosters go.  I am happy to report that Mark has his own blog now, called a Tabblo!  Well, OK, he shares it with his Dad, but still!  Check it out for some cool photo essays and a movie.  Mark’s first post was made as soon as he got to his new home.  Now that’s what I call efficient!

Take care, friends!  We will post about the holidays next time!

Howdee everyone!  I have been watching “the Apostles” very closely.  They are becoming very tricky.  As they get bigger and bigger, they find it easier and easier to escape their little blockade.  In facts, they have become so good, Mom and Dad caught them on video for us.

Watch how Luke (grey) and Matthew (black) show that nothing can stop them from escaping!  I love to watch them through the fence.  I have learned many new tricks from them that I will work on implementing soon.

By the way, all the movies produced by “The Furry Bambinos” are now available on YouTube.  Click to see our new YouTube channel! I’m not in any of the movies yet, but I hope to be soon!

Panda Bear reporting …

Something happened to our blog!  Mommy noticed it this morning and was a little worried. 

Daddy is our tech dude, so he took a look at it closer and found that something was all broke.  So Daddy worked his magic … and really @$&#ed it up good! 

Now all our pictures are gone and we are sad.  I’m going to bite Daddy when he gets home because he did something he shouldn’t have —  I know it!  I know it!  I know it! 

He promises to get all our pictures back in place as soon as he can.  He better!  We will all gang up on Daddy tonight and give him the bitey! 

Daddy told me he has to “back up” more often so this doesn’t happen in the future.  Why does Daddy need to back up?  Why doesn’t he just go forward?  Beans are weird. 

Gotta sharpen my teeth for the bitey party tonight! 

Panda Bear out.

Hi efurrybody! Panda Bear repurrting.

First, we would like to thank our good friend Millie for giving us this award:

Excellent Blog

Wow, we are humbled to be awarded by someone like Millie, who has such a fantastic blog.  Now, we need to pass the award on.  We would like to recognize:

Max, The PsychoKitty (my purrsonal role model and truly an Excellent Blogger)

Now for the update on recent events at Casa Cabán.  This has been a tough week. Mommy and Daddy went back to work on Monday, leaving The Furry Bambinos home alone. We managed OK without them, but we missed them and gave them a warm welcome when they got home.

Then Daddy got sick with “the flew”. I dunno why they call it that, cause he sure wasn’t doing any flying like a birdie. And he was not as much fun as Mommy was when she was sick. Daddy went to work instead of staying home and sleeping on the sofa with us.

Then on the way home from work yesterday, The Room That Moves got sick. Apparently its scarf fell off while Daddy was driving to go get Mommy. The Room That Moves made awful loud noises. Daddy said that he had to call Triple A. They came and toad The Room That Moves to the fix-it place.  I didn’t realize Triple A used toads.

Panda Bear? 

Yes, Dad?

I said the muffler fell off, not the scarf.  And the car was towed, not toad.

Muffler, scarf, frogs, toads, whatever.

And Daddy says The Room That Moves will purr like a kitten once it’s all fixed.  I dunno about that.

A couple of days ago Mommy pulled out her Rectangular Box With Zippers and started throwing clothes inside.  She talked to us about how she would miss us and would be back soon.  She said she was visiting our gramma and grampa in Pennsylvanicat for grampa’s birthday and Russian Christmas which sounded like fun, but she said we couldn’t go along. 

Mommy took the Rectangular Box With Zippers out the front door.  I tried to go out the door when she did, but she pushed me back inside, said “bye, bye” and then closed the door.  I was very sad about this until Meerkat started chasing me and then I forgot all about it. 

Daddy came home a little later in the day and was happy to see us.  I wasn’t sure he knew Mommy had packed up her Rectangular Box With Zippers, but then he said we have a “swinging bachelor pad”, and that we would be “batching it” with him for the night until Mommy came back. 

Daddy made us a special dish of Stinky Goodness and then I fell asleep on Mommy’s chair in the eating room. 

I don’t know how long I sleeped, but when I woke up, all the lights were off and the door to Mommy and Daddy’s sleeping room was closed.  I heard Daddy snoring and I tried scratching the door to get in, but he didn’t open the door. 

It wasn’t much of a “swinging bachelor pad” if you ask me. 

The next morning Mommy wasn’t around, but Daddy fed us like usual and snuggled us.  Then we went to sleep.  Mommy came in the door later in the day.  Yay!  She came back!  She had the Rectangular Box With Zippers, plus some other boxes and she hugged us and petted us and snuggled us and said how happy she was to see us and that she “missed us so much”.

So naturally we have been following Mommy around to make sure she doesn’t make another such disappearance. She and Daddy have gone to “work” but they come home together, so that is OK. Mommy explained that they have to visit a place called “work” so that they have green papers to trade at the store for our stinky goodness.

But we have been hot on her trail while she is at home…
