UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

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!!

The Magical Blankie!

So as I mentioned, we were lucky enough to win one of Peggy's Hairy Blankies in the contest that The Monkeys had at their blog. Well, the blankie arrived on Wednesday, and we opened it Thursday - didn't end up getting any pics of that part because the cats were busy being goofy. I took it on the couch to open, and literally as soon as it was out of the box I had a Barney climbing on my lap. I put the blankie over him and he went to sleep - and when kittens came to investigate he was totally fine - didn't even budge. Then later (I ate dinner and had to move Barney), I had the blankie in my lap (already suspecting it's magical properties) and he came and climbed right in. Then Stella and Gus came and snuggled in right next to him - Stella's back was even touching Barney's back! No growling, no fuss - it was awesome! And the blankie itself is gorgeous - I have to get pictures still (though I did manage to reach the camera and get one of the three kitties together). Oh, and if you see this and think "why aren't there pics here" well, it is quiet at work so I am pre-typing this for Saturday and scheduling it. We also got our Casbah Kitten certificate and so I will be taking a look there this weekend to see what to pick for the kitties. And of course today is the kittens first vet trip - wish us luck! We will have an update on that with pictures later on!!

Have a great Saturday!

Peggy's blankets are the best! (Don't tell our mom, but we like our hairy blanket better than her quilts!)

And good luck making decisions at Casbah Kitten - we think it's really hard! We love the jellybeans and both sizes of pickle, but they have a lot of new toys that our mom has not bought us yet!

Nothing makes the world feel safe and sharable like a cozy blankie. Who can resist curling up and cuddling when so swaddled? The kitties know; maybe we should send one of those blankets to every major decision makerin the world. Have a great weekend.

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

That blankie sounds so cool! We want a magic blankie too.

Ariel said...

That's some blankie sounds magical...Hugs

Angel and Kirby said...

That is a very magic blanket!

Cat said...

Hmm...before, I would have said that we need one of those magical blankets, but now, it seems that Tiny doesn't need one...she is always coming and sitting next to or on me!! Do you think she is 'on' something? I'm almost worried as it is soo out of character for her to actually even consider laying next to me muchless to actualy do it!! If the situation changes, I'll be asking you more about that magic blanket of yours!! Thanks for sharing! purrs, Lautrec
