PAWS

Thank you to all my family and friends that voted for me in Kitty Fight Club! I won in my first round of competition against my super cute adorable opponent Scylla of Alasandra, the Cats, and a Dog. I think that Scylla is absolutely adorabubble.

My next competition begins on Thursday, May 13 over at Misha’s blog, The World According to Misha.  My opponent is another real cutie, Asia of Pet Meadow.

We are very sorry that we have not posted or been able to visit and comment recently.  We really miss you!  We want to know what is going on in your lives.  There are several reasons for this, some of which have been beyond our control.

1) Our Internet connection has been SLOOW SLOOOOW SLOOOOOOW for the past several weeks.  Some days, it is just fine, but at other times, it is too slow to load pages without timing out.

2) Mommy and Daddy are both very busy lately.  Daddy is working for the Census Bureau.  The phone keeps ringing, and Daddy keeps running out the door.  Daddy supervises a team of 21 humans who go door to door to collect information about the people who did not return their census forms.

3-5) Reason Numbers 3 – 5.

In our final Birthday Post for Cookie and Caramel’s First Birthday, we decided to post some Baby Pictures! We must warn you, you may need to protect your ears from excessively loud SQUEE-ing on the part of your humans.

OK, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Mom got the photos from Mama Gina, the kittens original human Mom. The photos are labelled as Kittens with a number after it, so we think the number is the number of days old the kittens are in the photo.

On day 1, this is the four babies (all females). Caramel is the one on the top of the photo, and Cookie is underneath the pile. You can just see her gold flame mark on her forehead.

This next photo shows the four little girls at day 15. Cookie is on the far right at the top, and Caramel is at the far right on the bottom.

This day 21 photo shows the girls nursing and shnuggling with their biological Mom. Caramel is looking directly at the camera. Caramel was exhibiting her Diva-in-Training qualities from a young age. Cookie is above Caramel – just look for the gold flame mark on her forehead.

Get ready to SQUEE efurryone! This next photo on day 36 shows three of the girls cuddling together. Again, Caramel is looking at the camera. Notice that her eyes are still blue and not their gold color! And you can see her gold toe on her left front paw! Cookie is at the bottom of the pile, in the foreground of the photo. Note how large her gold flame mark looks compared to how tiny her little head is! Their sister kitteh (grey kitteh on the left with her chin on Cookie’s back) has a gold flame mark on her forehead, too.

This final photo, taken day 48, shows little Cookie looking into the camera. Oh my SQUEE! Isn’t she just ADORABLE?! Look how blue her eyes are at this age!

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!

last weekend, mommy and daddy were flirting with other kitties!  woofies, too!  we know for sure, as we have both photographic and sniffologic evidence.

i guess there was an “adoptathon” at the local petsmart.  so mommy and daddy agreed to help out, because they volunteer with paws.  paws is the animal rescue group that saved us furry bambinos, and helped us find our furrever home.  paws was one of the organizations at the event.

here is some of the photographics evidence: exhibit a: mommy cuddling a tuxie kitty!

Mommy flirts with another tuxedo.  Boo hoo!

and this is a tiny baby kitten that a nice man found in his back yard, in the dark, in the rain.  the kitty somehow got separated from his mommy.  mommy said that the kitten was only about two weeks old. gail, another paws volunteer, is holding the tiny baby kitten.

See the little kitty!

so the nice man went to petsmart to get “kmr”, which is kitten milk replacer.  kmr is a powder that you mix up with warm water and bottle feed to tiny baby kitties.

so here is exhibit b: mommy helping gail bottle feed the tiny baby kitty. that’s mommy’s left hand holding the tiny baby kitten’s chin to the bottle.

this is a close up of the tiny baby kitty.

Awwwwwwwww

this is a “pile o’ kittens”. can you tell how many there are?

Pile O Kittens

and here is photographic evidence of the sniffologic evidence i hinted at.  when mommy and daddy came home that afternoon, they were COVERED IN OTHER KITTIES’ FUR and they SMELLED OF OTHER KITTIES!!!

We smell other kitties!

I smell another kitty!

sigh, those kitties sure are cute, though.  and i really hope that they find their furrever homes soon!  i just hope that mommy and daddy don’t have any ideas of replacing us!

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!

mommy with kitty

daddy with kitty

and oh. my. bast. just look at this:

daddy with a little woofie

who knew mommy and daddy would flirt with woofies?

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!

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!
