Opt to Adopt Blog Hop Tibby Bean

I was planning on sharing a cute picture of Glitter, but blogger is giving me some trouble today so I'm giving up and saving it for another day!


It's Opt to Adopt Blog Hop!


Today I'm, once again, sharing about Tibby Bean. She's been waiting an awful long time for the perfect special family to claim her. Can we help this kitty get into a home? She's been in Winnie's Wish over six years, I think it's time!

Yes, she's a nibbler, and she can be grouchy with other kitties, but she loves human attention! None of these things mean she can't be a very happy kitty with the right, patient, people! Lets get it done for this sweetheart!

Learn more about Tibby Bean HERE

Contact Chrystal to adopt! (c3k@lazernetwireless.net)

Please share Tibby Bean everywhere so she has the best chance at forever!


Yesterday marked the first day of our new Surf and Turf FUNdraiser for Winnie's Wish! Please scroll down or click HERE to check it out! Five great toys for just $18 US and you get to help the kitties of Winnie's Wish by playing!

 Please feel free to take the banner here or on my sidebar and display it! If you would help us share and spread the word about this fundraiser we'd be very thankful!

Surf & Turf FUNdraiser for Winnie's Wish!

Winnie's Wish is the private cat rescue shelter and sanctuary run by Chrystal of the Daily Dose blog. This is the wonderful rescue that my three kitties came from! Chrystal does her best to rescue any kitty that comes across her path. She gets them fixed, makes them healthy, gives them love, tames them if they need it (mine did, and boy are they the best lover kitties ever now!) and then tries to find great homes for them.

The third room of the cathouse is almost ready to be opened. This means she can immediately separate kitties who don't get along well, but it also means she can take in a few more kitties. She already has a lot of kitties looking for homes, and you know what that means? Expenses. Litter, food, vetting, vaccinations, cleaning materials, air conditioning, heating.. I'm sure you get the idea. These are costs that never seem to go down, right? That means it's time for another FUNdraiser!!

This time, we have the
Surf & Turf FUNdraiser!


This is a set of five toys! Two from land, two from sea, and one just for funsies!
(sample set, colors and patterns will vary)
Here's what the set includes:
One Fish Stick Kick! It's a long, kickable fishy filled with nip!
One Chick-hen! It's a nippy chicky with felt beak and comb!
One Octopus! Can you resist eight crocheted wavy legs and a head full of nip?
One Mousie! Crocheted with a curly tail and full of our high potency nip, perfect for batting around!
One Fleecey Ball! Lots and lots of fleece strips make up this bitable, batable ball that comes sprinkled with Silvervine!
For a minimum donation of just $18 (US) to Winnie's Wish, you get all five of these fun toys! Every bit of that money, aside from postage and a very small materials cost, goes directly to Winnie's Wish! This means that approximately $14 helps the kitties! The $18 is for the continental USA, postage is included.
International Orders: Postage outside the USA has gone up. It looks like there will have to be an extra $10 US added on to send internationally. Please email first so I can check rates to your country. Email to anniclan AT aol DOT com
CLICK the donate/paypal button on my sidebar and make your donation,
THEN EMAIL ME at anniclan AT aol DOT com with your mailing address. I’ll get your set out to you ASAP and send the donation on to Chrystal and Winnie's Wish!
If you don’t have paypal or prefer not to use it, email me and I’ll give you the address to send cash, check or money order, once it clears, I’ll send your toys!
Any questions, email me first!
If you can, please share the Surf and Turf Fundraiser on your facebook, twitter, blog, or wherever so we can spread the word!

Also, Please let everyone know about the great kitties of Winnie's Wish waiting for homes!

Did You Hear a Camera?

All three of the kitties were in the door, sharing whiffies, enjoying the birdies and squirrels.

Then they heard the camera open...

By the time it was ready to take the picture, this is what I got.

Leo: Did you hear that camera?
Cashmere: You know I did, just keep walking..
Glitter: You can miss the birds if you want, but I'm not moving!  

Sigh, what does a cat-mom do when her babies know the sound of the camera opening?? And why can't they make a silent camera??

Hope you all have a great weekend, whiffies and all! 

Ps: There are prototypes of three of the items from the upcoming FUNdraiser in this picture!

Special Card

Short post because I'm posting late!

Last weekend was Father's Day but it was also Greg's birthday! One of our nieces, Twin 2 (The Scared One, TSO) gave him a great card! I have to share it because all of my kitty friends will appreciate it!

Cute or what?

Now, as sort of a TBT (Throw Back Thursday) even though it's not that long ago that I posted it, I'm posting Greg and one of his girls! Cashmere hugging her daddy!

I am pushing hard to get the FUNdraiser for Winnie's Wish up and running by this weekend as I had promised! I've had a last minute rework that has slowed me down, but it was necessary for a variety of reasons. I'm still hopeful that by Saturday at the latest it'll be up! (If I miss that, can we call Monday the end of this week? MOL!)

Not Yet

Um, Glitter, that's still not quite right..

What are you talking about? You didn't like me leaning on a hard table, you wanted me to us the new bed, so I'm using the new bed!

Ok, yes, you are using it, but it's meant for you to be on the top, not the side!

Glitter: Your wish is my command.. I am not over the top of the bed!
Leo: *munch munch* she's got ya there!

Not quite what I meant either, Glitter... I thought we'd worked out the problems with the new beddy?? Silly kitties!

I'm sure you notice the huge hunks of cardboard scratcher there? sigh, that's another story I have to update..

FUNdraiser Teaser! I'm hoping to start it by the end of the week. Let me leave you with this theme to ponder? Surf and Turf!

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Seriously? A nice soft comfy bed is RIGHT THERE and she leans on a hard cold table base..

I'm a cat. And a woman. I can be as contrary as I want and there's nothing you can do about it!

Ok, that's fine, Glitter, but it still doesn't make sense to me!

International Box Day

Today is International Box Day!!!

We've had some boxes around here recently, but none we could let kitties in. So I have some kitty on box pictures!

These are the boxes that the material for Twin 1's bridesmaid dresses came in. You may notice that there is another box on that box and that Cashmere is laying on a plastic bag (that contains ribbons for said dresses). Those are there to keep little Miss Chomps out of the big boxes!

I had SUCH a hard time keeping her from getting in there and chewing on the tulle I was using to poof out the dresses and make crinolines! She was obsessed! So was Glitter, but not as bad.. Even when I was sewing it, I had to make sure none was hanging off the table! And I had to carefully cut out around the holes they chewed in it!

When the boxes were left open, they would flip up the flaps and get in to chew tulle. We put that small heavy box on it to keep the flaps down, she would wedge her face in whatever space there was, grab some tulle, pull it up and chomp and chew until someone caught her! Put the bag over the opening and she laid on it, obviously irritated that she no longer had access to the tulle!

What is all this stuff doing on my chompy box? How am I supposed to get in there now?

You'd think they didn't trust me or something... I'm hurt.

Just in case that doesn't satisfy the rules for International Box Day, I found this picture of Leo in his first year here. Boxes were Star's favorite thing, but he got a chance once she got out.

Ok, this is gonna be my race car, I'm gonna be Meowio Purrdretti!
VrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRrrrrrroom! I take the checkered flag! Whoo!!! All the cute girl cats are rushing the track to come give me head butts and ear lickies! Yeah!!!
Oh... Hi mom.... what's that? Just sittin' here, that's all... nothing else going on..
Happy Box Day

Throw Back Thursday

I was playing with Da Bird with Leo, Glitter and Cashmere a little while ago and realized something. As a family, they have the same play trait. They are lazy players!

They will leap after Da Bird once or twice, then they roll themselves on the floor and wait for it to come close enough to grab! They will roll around like mad, and scoot across the floor, but they stay down. They are fierce.. well, the girls really are. Leo isn't quite as fierce, but he gets his licks in. I prefer to think of him as polite, when the girls start after the toy, he backs off so they can play. I make sure the toy finds him wherever he is though, and since the girls are on the ground, he has a clear shot!

So this morning when I was playing with my lazy players, I remembered a very fierce player. Star, no matter her age, even up to just before she crossed her bridge, was the fiercest player I've ever seen! She would leap and jump and claw and grab.. She never stopped. Well, she occasionally had to take a rest break after she turned 10 or 12.

I posted this series of her playing in November 2012. My girl was fierce!


Star, when she is ready to play, is so freaking wild that she's almost impossible to catch on the camera! I did, however, get a series of her playing with Da Bird in her daddy's chair. From the pictures, it looks like she ONLY played with it in that chair.. But she was seriously all over the room, from one side to the other, as long as the string would let it travel! She was moving so fast that the only time I could get a good picture of her, and not just where she HAD BEEN, was when she dived into the chair.

Star always attacks her toys with tooth and claw, which is why her mouth is open, she is NOT yawning..

I got it now!

I'm going to eat you now!

You just THINK you're getting away!


You are not getting this away from me!


Crud! Where did it go!?

Oh there it is!

If I don't bite you in half, it won't be because I didn't try!

You think you're fast, but *I* am faster!

Wait a minute.. What are you looking at?

I might have to be done if you're going to watch me play... my fierceness is private.


Maybe I should show this to Leo and the girls.. might show them something?

Tummy Tuesday and Opt to Adopt Blog Hop

Because I'm so late getting this up, and because I have a great new tummy shot of Leo that I want to share for Wordless Wednesday tomorrow, I thought I'd quickly share some older tummy shots of my boy! These might all be from his first year here, or around that time. Love is fluffy tummy!



This adorable bonded brother and sister need our help to find their happily ever after!
Tinkerbell and Peter Pan have been waiting and waiting. Please share and help them find the home they were meant to have!

These are sweet sweet kitties, read more about them HERE

Contact Chrystal to adopt! (c3k@lazernetwireless.net)

Please share and ask your friends to share so that these fairy tale kitties can start their once upon a time!

Oh, and once you're done sharing these sweeties :D  Please stop over at Daily Dose and see the room that love is building! That's right, the room that we all, YOU ALL, helped fund is going up! This is what we all donated to, went to the auction for, and helped the gofundme for! And it's looking awesome! Can't wait to see the finished room with kitties living in it! But the greatest thing would be if there were no kitties to go in it because they all got adopted before it opened! Lets help and share these wonderful kitties, including Tinkerbelle and Peter Pan above!

To Bunk or Not To Bunk

Cashmere: So is this what they mean by bunk beds?
Glitter: Um.. not exactly.

Cashmere: But I have the bottom bed and you have the top bed, isn't that how bunk beds work?
Glitter: Sort of. But if you want the bottom bunk bed, you'd have to be in the blue ham-mick under the pink bed that I'm in because technically, I'm in two beds!
Cashmere: Um.. never mind, I don't need bunk beds any more.
Glitter: *giggle* Good idea, I think I'd find you a bit lumpy to sleep on anyway!

Hope you all have a good nappy weekend, free of lumpy beds!

Toesie Tuesday and Opt to Adopt Blog Hop

I love love love this picture of Leo's back feet! It shows off the extra toes on his back feet AND they are crossed AND there are some amazing toe hawks AND you can see his head hanging down in the back of the picture! That's awesome on top of awesome!

Edited to add:
I noticed that Star's birthday/gotcha day was posted again today on the blogosphere.. I don't know how that happened. It was posted there on June 1st also, which was her real birthday/gotcha day. I hope she's having a giggle over the bridge for getting two days!


This week I'm sharing Smokey! A great Winnie's Wisher who just wants a person to love and a cat buddy to hang out with! If you don't have a buddy for him in your home, that's ok, he has a best friend who's being fostered with him! Either way, won't you consider giving him a home? And if you can't, will you share him and help him find his forever?
