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!!

Thursday in the Garden and Thankful Fur Three Thursday!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our very late garden/thankful fur three post! In addition to those, I will also be posting a couple pics of Kirzon's bald spot - well, one of them. So first the garden!

You can see from the pictures that the mint has gotten huge. The basil is doing ok too, the rest are growing but still tiny. Today, I have pictures of Virgil checking it out, and then you can see he gets bored and starts to go after the little domes.

And now, here are a couple pics of Kirzon's bald spot - he has a similar, but smaller, one on his other side. I didn't find any large fur tuft piles today, so that is good.

And now here is the Thankful Fur Three on Thursday Blog Hop!!

So,for those of you who either forgot or didn't know, Thankful Fur Three is the fun blog hop started by our friends at The Teacher's Pets It is pretty easy, and super fun - here are the guidelines, and the links for everyone participating are down below!

I like to keep things simple so here are the 3 guidelines FUR the blog hop:

1. To join in the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday, include your link in our list, follow the hostesses (The Teacher’s Pets and my lovely friend, Maggie Mae) in the first 2 spots and WE PROMISE TO FOLLOW YOU IN RETURN and then start blog hopping! Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love. Then take a minute to follow them through Google Friend Connect – this is a good way to keep up with other blogs, but also lets us show support to each other! Please DO NOT list your giveaways here, links must be to either your homepage or your Thursday posting with your blog title. All others will be deleted.

2. When people comment on your blog and let you know they’re a part of Thankful FUR 3 Thursday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers out of participating, and it’s a win-win situation. We would think it was pawsome if you grabbed our Thankful FUR 3 Thursday button and post it on your blog and/or in a post but please don't feel obligated to do so! The more bloggers that find out about Thankful FUR 3 Thursday and participate, the better!

So what's with the bald spots Kirzon??? I still can't get over the beautiful indoor garden...and why I don't have one. Thanks for hopping blogs with us today, it was fun!

Lovely garden! Poor Kirzon. That does look bad. I hope you can figure it out and get him better, hugs to the Old Boy.

Mr. Pip said...

One of my feline siblings seems to be pulling out fur on her legs. I think she is still grieving her sister who passed away awhile back. I feel so bad for her.

Your pal, Pip

Why the bald spots Kirzon?

Sparkle said...

Geez, Kirzon, allergies is one thing, but all that fur-pulling is practically OCD! One thing that puzzles me about this garden - how come these seedlings haven't been nommed by now? If they had been growing in my house, they would all have been destroyed by now.

Old Kitty said...

Oh sweet Kirzon!! Oh my goodness you poor sweetie!! Oh Kirzon, please stop overgrooming!!! Oh dear. I remember my ol' girl and she used to overgroom around her tail so much all her life. All the vets I saw tried everything - but she would stop for a bit then start again. It was quite upsetting because as the human I really really didn't know and still don't to this day why my kitty was doing this. So I do understand and I've got everything crossed that Kirzon's meds work. Big big hugs all round!

Now look at your fabulous garden!!! It's really growing - that mint is amazing! I love how Virgil gets all curious then decides the plastic domes are more fun!! Awwwwww!

Take care and all the best especially for lovely Kirzon!!

Yay for Thurday blog hop too!

Take care

Kea said...

That's a terrific indoor garden!

Poor Kirzon! LOL. Aw, he's still a handsome boy, bald spot and all.

Forever Foster said...

Virgil, you sure look very intent on checking out your indoor garden. It is so cool!

Reenie said...

Oh, that is SUCH a BEAUTIFUL garden. My mama is allergic to most plants, but even then she's tempted!

CCL Wendy said...

Virgil is just snoopervising, I think. He's not so concerned with the plants that are doing well -- he wants to see what's up with the others.

Kirzon, dude! What's up with that?
Actually I really would like to know why because Domino is starting to do stuff like that, too -- except not as extreme. Are they trying to tell us something perhaps?

Madi and Mom said...

I've never seen anything like your garden...did that come as a unit?

Poor little Kirzon. Does he appear to be stressed about something? Tell him he cannot be bald on his b-day weekend too. Wish him a happy b-day tomorrow.

I can't believe those plants haven't been eaten yet!

Anonymous said...

WE wish we had space for a garden like that, but we'd make mama grow catnip in it! Poor Kirzon--we hope is done with his fur pulling!

Rene said...

Ok, Kirzon. I had no idea his bald spots were that large! I hope you can figure that out soon.

Katnip Lounge said...

We would have eaten the garden down to the stalks! You kitties are too good to be true.
Kirzon...what's up with the fur-pulling, buddy? That's GOTTA hurt! We hope you feel better soon!

OMD it WAS Lola! My humble apologies. I swear I didn't leave her out because she's a feline.

PS Love this garden and mom gets a bit green when she sees it
