Freaky Friday

There are no pictures of the actual occurrence, but I have been assured that this is what happened!

See Glitter here on the end of the bed amongst rumpled up sheets? (I know it's hard to see, Greg took it on his cell phone in the wee hours of the morning)

Glitter: I don't know what you're talking about... I'm a calm, sweet, innocent kitty cat.. Totally. I mean it. You believe me, right?

About three minutes before this shot was taken, that top sheet was neatly spread over the bed, from head to foot. And then Greg heard a noise and turned to look! Glitter was DIVING onto the top sheet and sliding down the bed with her paws tucked under! (see, they're still under!) Then she got up and did it again and again while Greg fumbled trying to get video! But she managed to slide the whole thing all the way to the foot and all he got was this seemingly innocent looking cat on an unmade bed.

Who are you going to believe? Miss Innocent up there, or Greg who total witnessed the whole thing, sans the moments when he was frantically mashing buttons on his flip phone? You decide!

Don't forget, if you haven't stopped by our Blogoversary comment-a-thon, it's still going until midnight Friday the 21st! (that's today!)
Help the kitties of Winnie's Wish by just saying hi! (Winnie's Wish, for those who may not know, is the cat rescue and shelter where I got Leo and then his sisters, and for whom I am pleased to fundraise in many different ways!)

Boy am I really messed up! First I go and forget to post on Leo's Gotcha day, then I go and miss posting on our blogoversary!!

Six years we've been blogging! It does NOT feel that long! I can't believe my boy is getting that old either! Denial much? Na, not me! ;)

The first pictures I posted of Leo were not the most flattering. But all I had was a crappy camera and a crappy cell phone camera, so we got what we got. So glad I have better now! Although lately I've mostly been posting pictures from Greg's camera (No, still not home, will talk about that another day).

I'm so thankful to Chrystal for having Winnie's Wish and for giving me a chance to be Leo's mommy! And then a few years later, entrusting me with two of his sisters too! She took excellent care of my babies, raised them well from scared little ferals to loving cuddly lapcats!

For our blogoversary, would you please head over to Daily Dose, the Winnie's Wish blog, and check out the kitties on the side bar who are still waiting for their forever homes. If you absolutely can't make room in  your life for one or a pair, would you share them? You never know who will fall in love with one of them like I did six years ago, could be one of your friends or family members or even one of their friends! (so ask them to share too!) Thank you!

Winnie's Wish can always use donations and wish list items! I think you know that I'm a big fundraiser for her, right? :) Well, for this blogoversary I'm going to fundraise differently than I have before. I'm going to do a comment-a-thon! That's right! Just by commenting on THIS post, you can help Winnie's Wish! For every comment I will donate $1 up to $50!! (no, the same person commenting a hundred times doesn't count hee hee) Thank you, in advance for helping out the woman who saved my sweet heart cat, Leo the Chinese Lion and his sisters, Glitter and Cashmere! (and the other three who are also in great homes!)

Look! our first banner!

The first picture I ever posted of Leo! Scared on the ride home, poor baby! You can read the story HERE on our first post ever!

Here's a better, yet still early, picture of my fuzzy boy playing!

My favorite picture of our sweet Star, who we will always miss, ornery as she was. She was a love when she wanted to be, but she ruled all of us with a velvet claw.

A favorite Leo picture! also early!

Thank you all, for visiting, for being our friends, and for helping me help the rescue that saved my heart kitty!

Edit: comment by midnight EST on Friday the 21st to count for the comment-a-thon!

It's the Line Up

Glitter: These pets are great..
Cashmere: Soak it up while you can, it's my turn soon, sister!
Glitter: I could lay here all night..
Cashmere: No she won't, she'll run off to her tree perch and I'll have MY daddy ALL night! Patience works for me. *smirk*

She's right, you know. Glitter stays until she's done then she's gone in the blink of an eye. Cashmere stays until your arm falls off! Leo falls somewhere in the middle but also manages to make it feel like it's your fault he has to leave when he does go..
