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!!

Ok, so then the next thing I want to talk about is "Oh Canada", the Canadian National Anthem. Now, I am not from Canada, but I know all the words to the Canadian National Anthem. The other day I was watching an old episode of That 70's Show where they went to Canada and were trying to convince the Mounties to let them go. At one point they sing "Oh Canada", so I sang along - and Virgil went wacky! He was very excited and came over and was nibbling (not in a mean way) on my arm. I am pretty sure if a lady cat wanted to get him as a boyfriend, she could sing that and he'd be hers forever. So every time I sing it he shows up all excited. I would videotape it but then you would hear me sing, and that will NEVER happen.

Ok, so finally here are some pictures. In the picture of Virgil looking back at Kirzon in the window, you can kind of see the pink storage container that I have next to the bed, to make it easier for them to climb on the bed and in the window. Kirzon has a bit of a hard time, so there are containers on boths sides to help them up. I set them up when Virgil was tiny, and he still loves them, and since Kirzon learned to use them too it seemed like a good idea to leave them. Anyway, Enjoy!

Congrats on your award! Those are really cool photos of you all! My mom doesn't know the Canada song. You should make a video!

We use a lap desk for Ivan to get up on Mom's bed.. He uses the chair to get into the window..

Love the pics.. that tail looks like good bait for a kitten.. I am learning to keep mine tucked!

Have you ever heard that sunlight is good for our fur... Mom says I shed less when I get good sunlight. We hear that once about the sunlight just wondered if anyone else had?

Yay for your award! I love to see kitties in the windows. They know how to relax. The box is a good idea.
My kitties seem to like certain songs too. I'm not sure why... I can't sing in tune to save my life!
Have a great day! It's stormy here.
hugs and purrs,
Lorianna and her kitties
