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!!

Well, it is TockTober, and that means that it is time for the kitties to show their tocks! And of course with today being Derby's birthday, and him being Mr. TockTober, well, it is the perfect day for our tocks pictures! I had to go back through the archives to find some, and I noticed one thing - the older cats (Kirzon and Lola) don't really show their tocks - like ever! I couldn't believe that I didn't even find one! Now, some of my pictures are on a different drive, which is not set up right now, so there is a possibility there are some there, but out of all the ones on my computer not one was of the older cats. Even the young cats were tough to find - I think I just must not be trying to get the tock shots like I should! Anyway, for your enjoyment here are our tock shots for this TockTober. Enjoy and Happy Birthday Derby (and there is some other news after the pictures)!

So the other news, well, I guess it is less of a surprise now since I know some of you follow the other blogs, but on October 30 we will be helping Ash, one of the fosters at Daily Dose of Dogs, get to his new forever home! For those of you who don't know, Chrystal runs a private rescue down in way south Illinois, and she has taken in a lot of kittens recently who need help. So she needs to find forever homes for her residents in the cat house, so that she has room for the newbies to move in. So far only one has found a forever home, and that is Ash, who is going to live with his new forever family, Cat and the boys from Cat's Cats! Well, Cat is super excited and was ready to drive all the way down - but they are in Canada and that is a LONG drive! So now Chrystal will bring Ash up part of the way, we (Brad and I) will drive down south and meet them, then we will meet Cat up north. Just going all the way down Illinois would be a full day one way, so this will cut a big chunk of time off for her. And we get the fun of meeting them all, including Ash!! We are so excited! The extra cool thing is that we are doing it on October 30 - that is the one year anniversary of when Floyd went to the bridge. So not only is this adoption honoring Winnie (the adoption drive is Winnie's Wishes - you can click the link in the sidebar for info on that - the link above to Daily Dose of Dogs will take you to the Ash post, but you can get to the info from there too, since it is the same blog after all) but we are doing it to honor Floyd too! All three blogs are posting about it - and we will have pictures a few days after (Halloween being the next day will of course mean we will be BUSY that weekend, so other than the post for Floyd, we won't be online much!) I am so excited about this whole thing, and I know Brad is too. And of course it is a good thing that Ash is going to his forever home, and not just switching to a new foster home, because of course that means I can't do anything silly like bring him home (which would be such a bad idea with Lola already having issues - which is what I keep reminding myself every time Chystal takes in a new kitten - seriously the new bunch are polydactyl - so not just cute but with extra toes - lucky for me I know that it woudl be a bad idea to add any more, because it would really start to affect the cats too much). Anyway, that is the exciting news we had from the other day - at least it is for me! So I will be doing a bit of posting about our getting ready for the trip - it is going to be so much fun, and I am so glad that I get to help out both Chrystal and Cat!

Lucky you, getting to meet everybody, including Ash! And the timing is perfect too. That is going to be a fun adventure.

I expect I am in the non costume category for Halloween, as Lynettea doesn't seem to even notice when it is.

Au and Target said...

Absolutely love your blog - just came across it! I am a massive cat lover too - have 3 cats atm and hopefully getting a new rescue kitten after Christmas. Your babies are sooo cute!!

Rene said...

Kitty tocks! We don't have too many of those photos. And that's cool you are helping Ash and Cat! How far are you going to drive him?

Cat said...

Super tocks pictures is that Stella on the stairs?!

I hadn't written anything about you on my blog yet, but now I can tell everyone that you will be helping :-) Yay Amy and Brad! It is so wonderful that you volunteered to do some driving for Ash and us. It really eases the trip and makes it just a joy now instead of a mad driving dash to make it down and back in one weekend!

We will all drive in honour of Floyd on the 30th :-)

Eric and Flynn said...

Cute tocks. We like the springbok picture of Stella. That is very kind of you to help Ash get to his new Forever Home with Cat.

DailyGs said...

Those are some really cute tiny 'tocks!

Kat's Kats said...

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde sing to Derby:
"Happy Birthday (mew!)
Happy Birthday (meow!)
May your next year be real sweet
With lots of gushy food & treats!
Happy Birthday (mew!)
Happy Birthday (meow!)

"Yay for helping Ash getting to his Forever home! Mom says we can't have any new brothers or sisters right now because we don't have enough green papers. She also tends to follow the one cat per lap rule but no matter what dad thinks she's never going to have less than two cats in the house and probably not less than four even after her kittens move out. heh."

ABBY said...

Good tock shots!

Oh we are so happy about Ash and we think it is so wonderful that you are helping transport him to his new "Mom"!

And I think that helping Ash get to his forever home is just the best way EVER to honor Floyd. I know he's gonna be watching over your trip from the Bridge. I can hardly wait to see pictures and read about it!

Great tocks!

That is so awesome that you are helping to get Ash to his new home with Cat. What a great tribute to Floyd.

Tell Cat and Chrystal we said hello and thank you!

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie said...

Cute tock pictures! It's so nice of you to help drive Ash to his new home. Mama would love to adopt more kitties, but don't think Papa is too keen on it. We have to remember that when they need care, it can run up to big dollars sometimes. We hope all of the kitties find new homes soon! Have a great weekend.
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,

Tick-Tock...you cats Rock!

Nice job helping a friend...good friends make the world go round!

Gracie =^o.o^= & Hugo said...

Hugo has arrived safe and sound! We are having so much fun getting to know each other. He is going to help me with my Halloween party! I sure can use the extra help. having him here is just like having a brother! I have always to have a sibling. Oh this is going to be such a fun week.
Sure wish Barney could have gotten in that box somehow and got to visit with Hugo. Oh well. Hugo will have lots of kisses to give Barney when he decides to get back home.
