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!!

256 left

So I am down to 256 visits and have only been commenting on the most recent (except under special circumstances). My head got bad again yesterday afternoon so I decided not to try the computer once I got home. It is snowing now (and going to get worse) but on the bright side my head is better too. Except their is a weird perfume-y smell in my office all of a sudden (I am at work and smells carry through the ventilation system) so I fear a new one coming on. Most smells give me a headache (coffee is the worst for me - luckily they don't make it here that often). So Barney was good and snuggly again with me last night. He is such a sweetie!

Speaking of Barney, he is growing into quite the mancat - he has crushes on two ladycats right now. One is Milo and Alfie's cousin Lily, but he doesn't get to see her often because she doesn't blog (he has had a crush on her since they first posted her picture). Recently we started to get to know Gracie, and he fell hard for her too! I can see why he like them both - they are really more girl-cats then ladycats right now, so they are a good age for him, and they are both beautiful kitties! Since we know Gracie is having a birthday soon he has asked me to make her a special gift (hopefully I will get a chance before it is needed!)

Virgil is also bugging me about making something for his ladycat love Danielle - he wants to go on a special first date with her and he wants to send her a fancy invite. He is very annoyed that I have had these stupid headaches because they cause me to get behind. He helps to try and make me feel better but I think it is so I can work on his stuff!

Since there are no new pictures lately, I decided to go into my picassa album and get a few of my faves from the past year. They are below.

Oh, and for you NKC members that I need to get badges too - I promise I will be catching up today on blog visits and badges. I have to go through the rest of my email to catch up on that, but the NKC stuff goes to it's own folder so they are easy to get to. If you haven't sent me pictures but want to join please do. If you had asked about it before 1/1/10 you still qualify for Charter Membership!

Anyway, here are the pictures for you to enjoy!

I love your Kitty Photos ^,,^

Sammy and Andy said...

Wonderful fotos.....and we hope those headaches will go away.....our mamabug and her daddy both suffered from migraines for years....mamabug got to the place where she had them almost daily and was desperate for some help.....after not getting any help except medication from medical doctors she tried acupuncture.....she was that desperate!!!! It worked for years!!!!!!! Now she will occasionally have a minor migraine (or that's what the medical doctors say they are)....she can only see zigzag images but has no pain or nausea, so that is much easier for her to cope with. She lays down for a bit and makes herself totally relax and soon she is seeing fine....feels really tired, but is able to get on about her stuffs........YIKES, we didn't mean to write a novel!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxx

Sweet photos!

Puddin said...

Yay pictures!!! I love them! Thank you for posting them even though your head has been hurting. I'm hoping that the headaches will go away. My fiance gets migraines, so I understand how you must be feeling. Feel better soon!

Cindy said...

These great pictures will hold me for today! I know about the smells, they can really start a migraine.

My employer - Maximus Spittimus - has requested that I point out that you have very strange things on your heads (or..headimusses as he put it)

Best Regards

Rusty said...

Hi, your pictures are great and I sure hope that the smell headaches go away very soon!

Hi, this is Rusty's Mom. Thanks so much for your comments. Rusty's sort of had a nose thing for a long time now, but it was mostly noticeable only when he slept, he would sound stuffy. I'm leaning towards out of control allergies right now and the vet told me he could have 1/2 teaspoon of Childrens' Benedryl. He said he wouldn't like it, but I have a dropper I can get it down him with. If that doesn't seem to help, then maybe we'll pursue the asthma thing that some others have mentioned. I appreciate your comments and hope you get your headache issues worked out too.

Asta said...

Thank you fow those bootiful pictoowes I'd like to headbutt those kitties ( I heawsd that was the acceptable way to love them)
I'm glad you'we hea is bettew!!!

I have a kitty crush on Virgil, it was the photo with the water bowl that did it.-Peaches

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Sorry to hear about the nasty headaches...hope they end soon. Does an ice pack at the base of the neck help? That's what my aunt swears by. All those beautiful pictures and not a single tissue to be seen. What gives?

CCL Wendy said...

Those are some beautiful pictures you posted. I remember some of them from before, but not all.

It seems love is in the air for kitty couples this year! All of mine are now hooked up.

I can see why Barney would be interested in either Lily or Gracie. Looks like there might be another pretty little Gracie joining the Daily Gs, too. She's just a kitten also.

I'm afraid, I haven't met Danielle, but I wish all the kitties lots of love this year.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Those are great photos!! We especially like that first one! The new kitty here likes to do that. It makes it very are to do anything on the computer!

Gattina said...

I read in the comment above about acupuncture, it's right it helps a lot. Fortunately I don't suffer migraine but I have some friends who do and it's really awful. Your pictures are adorable !

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

AWW!! Those are such fantastic photos!! Sorry to hear about the headaches... could you get your boss to put a "no perfume" policy in at the office?

Karen Jo said...

The photos are great. I hope your headaches go away soon.

Milo and Alfie said...

That's a fabulous collecton of pics today! We espeshuly love the one of Barney lying on the computer!
We hope yoor poorly headache gets better. Mom said headaches are horrible.
There's an award for yoo at our place today.

Our mom speaks:
I sympathise over the trying to keep us with reading friends blogs. I decided a long time ago I couldn't read them all ~ so I wouldn't stress over it.
I picked out a reasonable amount of favourites and put the RSS feeds into the side bar of my blog ~ so at speed I could see if there was a new post that I wanted to read. Then others I just visit from time to time (sometimes by following links from the Cat Blogosphere).
It would be impossibe to follow all the wonderful cat blogs all the time ~ unles I dedicated my life to it!!!!!! So I don't even try. I'm sure most people understand that I (and they) can't comment everywhere and they don't take it personally.
I just thought it might help you to hear this ~ since blogging should be fun, not a worry about trying to keep up with commenting.

We loved the pics, the family is so very cute!!! Hope your head hurty thingy gets all better soon! Have a great weekend!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Amy I feel you pain...I'm very sensitive to smells too. Strong perfume being the worst. I can honestly (and thankfully) say not many smells bother me.
Great pictures today. I especially like the one by the water bowl...very cute,
Madi and Mom

Marg said...

Thanks for visiting our blog. We would love to join your Naughty Kitty Club. How do we do that??? Khaki would love to meet some other naughty kitties. Might give him some ideas.

loki said...

Very nice photos! Nanny has the same problem with headache...not fun at all. Wishing you all a great weekend!

caspersmom said...

What great pictures. Mom loves all your kitties. She says they are so cute, but Mom is always saying how cute cats are. She has a short vocabulary which consists of cute a lot of times. But when she says it she means it.

The love of my life is Missy Blue Eyes and Mom is finally helping make something that I can give to her.

We sure do hope your headache goes away and stays away real soon. Mom Mary Lynn has really bad migraines too.


Hansel said...

those are some great photos! :)

Butchy and Snickers said...

Awwwwwh, such cute pics! Mama is a migraine sufferer. A few years ago they finally put her on a beta-blocker drug & MAGIC, no migraines for over 1 1/2 years now. She would get them from smells/allergies, women hormone shifts, weather fronts, and her fibromyalgia. The drug is Propranolol. Maybe ask your doc. Do you have any migraine abort drugs? like Relpax? Takes them away in a few hours, sometimes only 20 minutes. Mama's migraines would normally last at least 3 days, with nausea, vomiting, etc. No need for you to suffer, so maybe talk to your doctor.
(Mama also takes Magnesium & Calcium in high doses, this also helped the migraines before the one drug)
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
