Busy Sunday

Hello Furiends,

My, things seem busy around here today! The beans said something about a train club. I hope that doesn't mean strange people coming to look at the train stuff I like to sleep under! Maybe not... the nice man just took a box of stuff outside.

Please purr and purray for Roscoe in Italy - he's very, very ill. His vet seems very attentive, but his beans and brother Opus are worried.

Victor is feeling a lot better, though when he opens his eye, it's really red. He wouldn't let me put a picture up. He fought hard to keep the nice woman from putting the drops in this morning, but she's an impressive cat juggler and succeeded. You also should have seen her drag him out from under the bed yesterday to go to the vet! Thank you for the purrs, purrayers and good wishes. I can tell the nice woman is still worried. Poor Victor, back to the vet again tomorrow!

I've learned something new! When the nice woman shakes a bag and calls, "Nina, treats!" it's a good time to come out to see her. Those Temptations are pretty yummy! For some reason, she isn't putting as much food out near my hiding places, so I've been going to the kitchen to find it. And sometimes she calls us for really good stinky wet food... "Stinky Goodness"!

Since Victor's been a bit subdued with his infection, I've been coming out and exploring a lot more. I also cleaned his ears. But today, he wants to pounce and chase me again! Eep!

We've received several awards and we really really appreciate them. I'm embarrassed how far behind we are on thanking you all! I've only been here 3 weeks, but it feels much longer.

I purrsonally was awarded the Cool Cat Award by PB&J! I'm sorry it took me so long to post it! Thank you so much! Pearl really knows how to keep those boys in line!

We love you ALL! We have received this award from Sniffie and the Florida Furkids, Laila and Minchie, Jasper McKitten Cat, and most recently, Karen Jo! I'm overwhelmed by all your love and attention! Thank you for making me feel so welcome. Victor is thankful, too!

One of our newest furiends, the lovely Fin, has presented us with our very own BFF Gold Card. Victor got excited when he saw this and said Amazon, here we come! He said we can get Temptations and more stinky goodness there. Silly boy, I don't think we have to travel to the Amazon - they are at the store!

My goodness, what a week! Victor wants to thank everyone who voted for him in Monty Q's Doing the Q contest. His silly Q-shaped tail won best interpretation of a theme!

The Hotties made this award for him. I love how everyone helped out Monty's family! Victor wants to be Victor Q Tabbycat, but for now, the Q is from "sQuint". Poor boy!

Thank you all again so much! ::purr lick purr lick purr lick purr lick:: I guess there are rules and we need to tag other furiends, but Victor's in a hurry to visit the Amazon on the computer ?!? Oh, I dearly hope everyone experiencing those awful hurricanes is safe and warm and dry! Give your beans extra snuggling so they don't panic.

Purrs and sandpaper kisses,


  1. Hi Nina! It sounds like you are settling in very well. Only 3 weeks? Great progress!
    Please tell Victor that we hope his eye is getting better.
    We are worried about him!

  2. Hi Victor!

    Dropping by to let you know i have some new cat pictures, in my blog :) Please come and comment :)


  3. We are purring very hard for Roscoe, but we haven't stopped purring that Victor feels better soon!

  4. Little Nina, it seems as though you have always belonged there, it is so nice to hear of such easy integration. And You must keep helping Victor with his cleaning so he can concentrate on getting better :)

  5. We're very happy to hear that you are feeling better!

  6. Nina, you are doing a wonderful job of taking over and doing the posts on the blog. You fit right in with the gang.

  7. Nina, you're making yourself right at home! Isn't Home the most wonderful place. We're still purring for Victor's goopy eye and Roscoe, too. Congrats on all your awards!!

  8. Victor, we loved your Monty Q and were jumping with joy when we found out you won! When Minchie came to live here with us 2 months ago, the first words he learned were "treats"!

  9. hey Victor, i'm glad your eye is healing. we're still worried about you and purring for you. congrats on your Q award! that tail trick was pawsome!

    hi Nina! that food trick is to get you coming out for food instead of hiding with it. it is a good trick and one you should follow. you should follow Tempations and stinky everywhere.

    i'm very glad you're settling in OK.

  10. Congrats on the Best Interpretation on a Theme win! (We voted for you...) I hope your eye gets feeling better. We've had some experience with bad eyes, Josie's had a run-in with Maggie several times, but it heals if you let your Mom do the drops.

  11. We are glad you are enjoying your new home, Nina!!

  12. Congratulations on your awards. It's nice to hear you're feeling more comfortable and eating in the kitchen. I hope Victor's eye is feeling better.

  13. Hey Nina ::waves paws:: we'z glad dat Victor is feeling better. Go easy on him, mancats are really kinda easy, wash der ears until dey fall asleep den steal der treats...hehehe~Sadie

  14. Nina, sounds like you are getting furry comfortable in your new home, we are happy for you!
    Victor, we hope your eye gets well very soon so you don't have to be tortured anymore.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Sammy, Festus & Emma

  15. Nina dear, we're happy to hear you're settling in and feeling more at home.

    Since we both have a gold card now, why don't we meet at the mall and we can get some new toys!

    Your friend

  16. Congratulations to your award ! Hope Victor's eyes will get better it must be quite a sport to put drops in when I think of the show that Lisa makes every day to take her pill ! If Nina cleaned Victor's ears, that's a very good sign ! A little patience and they will be the best friends !

  17. Congratulations on your first awards, Nina :-D

    I hope Victor is beginning to feel better today. Please tell him I said good luck at the V E T's today.

  18. We're worried about Roscoe too...

  19. Hi Nina,

    We are glad that Victor is on the mend. We are also glad that you are enjoying your forever home.

    Carmela and Moe

  20. I'm glad you are coming out a little bit more Nina and I hope Victor's eye continues to heal up!

  21. We're glad to hear that Victor is on the mend, and it sounds like you are making some good strides your self Nina!

    Concats on all the awardies!

  22. Cat juggler, that's funny. Glad Victor is doing a bit better. I'm glad you're giving ear licks, that should make him feel better.

  23. Hi Nina. We are glad to hear that Victor's eye is doing better. We will continue to purr for him. Congratulations on all of your awards, and congratulations on coming out of hiding more.

    Tiki, Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade
