Last Day to Bid!!

I'm so sorry I haven't had time to post today! Today of all days!

This is the last day of the auction! If you haven't seen Leo's plea in yesterdays post, please see it now, but remember today is it!!

And be sure to look over at Chrystal's blog, Daily Dose of Dogs (AKA Cats With Your Coffee)!

Lets make sure every item gets a bid and if you want something, don't be afraid to bid again! It's not a bidding war, it's a giving war!

If there is nothing you like in the auction, please see the gofundme and give as generously as you can!

I'm sure Chrystal will talk about it next week, but we need to get more than the $5000 to add the new room, if we can, because the ice and snow did a number on the current cathouse's roof.. Bad stuff happening and it's going to take more green papers to fix that before the new room goes up. So please, please help if you can! Spread the word also!!!

Love you all!

Video Monday Featuring Leo

It was Da Bird time and Leo jumped into the Leo Lounge instead of challenging his sisters for a turn to play. Since he was so polite, I rewarded him by bringing Da Bird to him!

I highly recommend that you turn down your sound because I forgot to mute the TV, oopsie.
Oh, and the first one is sideways.. Because I didn't realize that I can't turn a video like I can turn a picture.. Maybe I shouldn't share it with so many problems. But it's cute!


The Auction for Winnie's Wish ends on the 27th! But there are new items being added even now! Please check it out and bid bid bid!
The proceeds go to help build the new cat room which is very much needed!

Stacking Kitties

All the kitties love the caves. I think it's because it's cold. But we can't test that theory until summer.

Glitter, of all the kitties, loves the trees the most. She spends a good part of every day in a cat tree. Usually on the top most perch. Leo never uses the top perch, preferring the second highest. Cashmere will take any, she's not fussy.

With the caves, it's first come first served.

Now, I don't know if Glitter was waiting in line, or if she was enjoying the lower sun puddle. But this is a kitty configuration I hadn't seen before.

That's Leo in the cave, you can tell by the extra toes. And Glitter below.

Leo: zzzzzz
Glitter: Zzzzzz

Love how you can see the extras on his back feet, a rarity!

Leo: zzzhmm.. Do you see the ear of slight annoyance? Do I need to make it the ear of great annoyance before you go away?
Glitter: zzzzzz

Glitter has her face smashed into the chair next to the tree. On purpose! Silly girl.

Leo: That's better..zzzzzzzz
Glitter: zzzzzsnortzzzzzz

We hope you have uninterrupted, cozy sleep this weekend!

On the occasions when you are awake, don't forget t check in on the auction! I know there are some new items about to go up!

Thankfully Marg got her power back yesterday! I'm sure once she thaws out and catches up those items will be added.
Please take and post the badge!

Toy Thief

We have long kept stick toys on the back of the couch, leaning against the wall. For years they sat undisturbed by our kitty companions yet they were handy when we wanted to play with them. After Leo arrived, he would sometimes sit on the back of the couch and nibble on the feathers attached to these toys.

Once, he bit through the string on Da Bird and disappeared with the feather end which we recovered from behind the couch. That stick is the one we tied a piece of left over fleece to that Cashmere loves more than any other toy.

So was Leo the thief for breaking and taking half of Da Bird? Maybe.

Cashmere cannot leave the toys on the back of the couch alone. Especially the one with the fleecy end. She drags it down to the couch seat all the time to play with if no one will play with her with it. 

She is the thief! She doesn't just play with those toys where they are, she has to take them where she wants them! Thief! We'll say, then play with her with it since that's what she's after.. So I guess we reward her thievery..

Then this happened:

Cashmere, as usual, had drug down the fleecy toy stick while Glitter watched and occasionally licked a the feathers on another stick toy. Cashy was busy playing with her stolen booty when FLASH! Leo lept onto the scene and tried to run off with the stick!

Caught the 'end' of his attempted get-away!

Cashmere: Hey... no fair! That was mine..
Glitter: Did you see that? Because I saw that. Are you seeing this??
Leo: Bwahaha..oof... um...

Unfortunately for Leo, his route of escape would not allow the long stick to follow him from the angle he was going. It kind of jammed and 'twaaang'ed and stayed where it was while he kept going, through the bench tunnel and up the stairs! Cashmere seemed stunned during the whole incident. Glitter just takes everything in stride, nothing either of her siblings does ever bothers her.

Cashmere: But.. but... MOM!
Glitter: One thief steals from another thief.
Cashmere: But it was mine!
Glitter: Because you stole it. Can a thief complain about someone stealing?
Cashmere: Yes, yes she can!

I wonder if she even noticed that the toy was still next to her or if she was too stunned by the sneak attack to realize it?


Have you seen all the wonderful things in the auction for Winnie's Wish? Oh boy, we're so excited! We're so thankful for everyone who donated and for those who are now bidding!
Click the badge to go to the auction!

There has been a little confusion, so I'm going to try to spell out exactly how to bid.
First off, when you get to the auction site you will see the list of items and current bids. Marg updates this but she has been without power (please pray for her and her furry family!) so it's out of date but that's ok, we can look below also.

Under the summery of items, the actual item listings begin. If you see something you like, click on the title or the comment button and you'll see if there have been any other bids. Then you use a comment to make your own bid.

Remember, your bid will not automatically go up to the summery! That is done by hand later.

When the auction is over, the winning bidders will be contacted and asked to pay, after they pay the item donator will be contacted to send it out. Easy peasy!

Now that you know how it works (for those who hadn't known!) how about heading over and checking things out? And then please take the badge and share it?

Thank you!!!

Edit: Thanks to a comment I realized I forgot to say to be sure to click the older posts button at the bottom to see the rest of the items! There are two pages now, but when more items are added, there may be three pages or more!


This is for the man who runs the cat blogosphere!
Thanks for everything Mo! Happy birthday!!
