Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

I haven't got a good title today!!

So a bunch of you commented on the Virgil then and now pics - I cannot believe how much he has grown. He is still the smallest, and I think that is why he doesn't seem that different. Also, for those of you who are curious, he isn't looking at trick-or-treaters in the Halloween picture (we only had 2 all day - boy did they score on the candy!) he is looking at bubbles because we got a bubble fog machine. You can see pictures here.

Other than that the cats are kind of crazy today - I think it is the weather. Virgil was jumping up like a crazy person, trying to get something he saw in the curtians - he was getting really high, and trying to catch the curtains in his arms by flapping them together, kind of like a bird. Of course, as soon as I grabbed the video camera, he stopped and went to sleep.

Finally, I have to ask about toys with feathers - we have this feather thing that has long feathers on it, and the long feathers break all the time. The feather part is replaceable but does anyone else have this problem? They kind of look like this. They seriously break within 5 minutes of giving them to the cat, and yet, they love them. I am thinking of getting some at the craft store to make my own with. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Oh, here are a few pics for your enjoyment!

That is a cute picture of your tongue! My mom likes it too!

Your question about feathers? We don't often get to play with feathers here! Our brother Monty Dog will eat them up... so mom doesn't buy us any!

Also, We have given you an award! If you can do this that would be great!

We use to love fev-vers, but we do not play with our toys very much anymore, so we can only say that we use to kill our fev-vers quite soon, too.

I have a "Da-Bird" too. Someone sent my first one in the mail in a big tube. We have to keep it there when we are not playing with it, because otherwise I want to eat the feathers all up at once. We have gone through several of them. We've gotten them on ebay and even ordered them directly from the manufacturer. If you google it, you will find it! We use up the stringy part too, because Daddy whips too fast and knots it up. It is a very fun toy.

Your kitties are so sweet! This is the furst time I'm seeing them. They all certainly look like they have PURRsonality -- that fur sure!

Nice to meetcha! We do not have too many fev-ver toys. Be careful not to eat them up, because the sharp part can be dangerous to your innards.

See you again soon!

Actually, #1 gets us plain feathers whenever she finds them and a friend even occasionally brings us pheasant feathers. She says the best thing about plain feathers is that we play with them by ourselves which works out great, except when our woofie brother, Tommy, steals them and chews them up, that is!
