Sniffing

Hello Kittehs of the Blogosphere!  Thank you all for your fabulous suggestions!  We kittehs of Casa Furry Bambino have been trying to ascertain what all the hubba is about regarding The-Closed-Door-To-Mommy’s-Office.

Daisy the Curly Cat agrees with us that this is very mysterious!

Our friends at Jan’s Funny Farm, Joanne, Jane, Jill, Johnny, Jay Boy, Jasmine and Capu from Singapore, Parker, Zoey, Ernie, and Wally (AKA The Island Cats), and Charlemagne and Tamar, all suggested that there might be another Furry Bambino in there.  Gasp!  How could Mommy and Daddy do that to us?

Our friend Tammy Faye (whose Mom is one of our kitty sitters), suggested that Mom might just be in there trying to get some work done.  Without us there to help!  Egad!

Our friends Yaffa, Sebastian, and Dante wondered if there might be a woofie in there.  Oh my goodness!

Our friend Poppy Q thinks that there may be more fosters in there!

And our friends Lizzie, Caitie, and Nicky (AKA The Good Cats) suggested that we use our other senses, such as sniffing and listening, to try to learn more.

Well, I can definitely make out a scent that is a mixture of feline, litter, and food.

Look what Panda Bear sniffed out:

He found it in the food pantry next to our bags of crunchies:

Cookie says she heard “ba-ddump ba-ddump ba-ddump” coming from the room.  Meerkat says she heard mewing coming from the room.

Padre saw these on the kitchen counter:

Kittehs, what do all these clues tell us?

By the way, I am supposed to mention that Padre, Panda Bear, and Meerkat will be celebrating their Gotchaversary on Thursday, October 22!  Stop by on Thursday for a party!

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?

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!

Sorry that we have not posted in awhile.  Mommy says something about her job keeping her very busy.  Sigh.  She really needs to get her priorities straight!

In the meantime, we have a new source of entertainment here: The DeLuxe Bird Feeder Station.  Mom and Dad bought it at the local Wild Birds Unlimited store. The real name of the bird feeder is the WBU Advanced Pole System. It’s really cool, and keeps us entertained for hours.  The right side has a regular feeder for tasty regular birds. On top is a nifty house that the squirrels have pretty much claimed as theirs. Check it out:

The left side has a special feeder for tasty yellow birds like this one. Mom says the bird is a Gold Finch.

And now that it is warm here in Northeast O-Hi-o, windows have been left open for our sniffing pleasure!  Here is a photo of all of us Bambinos sniffing a squirrel:

In other news, I have a confession to make.  I LOVE Mommy’s shoes and slippers!!  It’s a little embarrassing, but I just can’t help it, I LOVE to cuddle with her shoes and slippers.

Well, that’s all the Bambino News for now!

recently, we furry bambinos noticed that many kitties in the blogosphere have been hanging out in their official dorfington fish stanley qa tested forty paws ham-micks. well, we convinced mommy to order ham-micks for us!

our ham-micks arrived a week ago thursday. padre and i gave the box a good sniff.

Gotta sniff the box to see if its okay

mommy put the ham-micks together while we snoopervised. padre, panda bear, and i helped out by sorting the materials.

Meerkat checks the supplies

Materials Check for the new hammicks

panda bear also helped by taste-testing the ham-mick parts while mommy was putting them together.

Panda helps arrange the materials

padre performed a safety check to make sure that mommy put the ham-mick together right. padre rubbed his paws with gusto, while applying pressure on the fleece fabric. padre does not have front claws, so he did not scratch the fabric.

Padre tests the first hammick

then padre settled in to test its comfort level, and made sure that all the parts were securely in place.

next, mommy assembled the pink ham-mick. padre performed the safety check on the pink ham-mick too.

last was the blue ham-mick. panda bear decided to put this one together himself. (mommy helped.) padre and i rested.

and again, padre jumped right in and gave the blue ham-mick the padre rubdown and security check.

unless you’re skeezix, pink is a girl kitty’s color, so the pink ham-mick is mine!!!

although, the brown ham-mick also coordinates nicely with my furs.

after all this work, we took naps in the ham-micks. the ham-micks are extremely comfortabubble! we slept well!

Full hammicks

we love love love our ham-micks! thanks dorf and efurryone at forty paws! purrrrrrss!

Well, our snow has finally all meltified! (Unlike Millie who still has some snow in New Hampster.) And there are tasty-looking birdies chirping outisde! And there are even some dainty-looking flowers that are starting to grow. So maybe Spring is finally here in O Hi O (as Parker would say)!

See, here is some evidence. The yellow flowers are crocuses, and the green thing may be a hyacinth (it’s hard to tell now):

Crocus pops up!

This weekend, the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and it felt warm for the first time in a really long time! Daddy and Mommy opened the windows for us to get a good sniff.

Looking out on the world

Luckily, there is one window pane for each of us.

One window for each of us!

On Saturday and Sunday, Mommy took us outside into the back yard. We are not allowed to go outside unless we are on our harnesses and leashes, and Mommy or Daddy has to be with us at all times. I enjoyed sitting on the back porch, taking in the sights, sounds, and aromas.

Outside in the fresh air!

Our harnesses feel kinda funny, so when we got outside, we just kinda sat still and sniffed.

Gotta start working on my tan!

We did get to listen to the birdies and see them flying around, so we had a great time!

Aaaah!  Take this thing off me!  Let me back inside!  Help!

Except for Meerkat, who seemed to be a little bit anxious the whole time. The look on her face and the position of her ears says it all… “Let me back inside!”
