Goodbye to My Gorgeous Girl- Jasmine

My first girl, my sweet little Jasmine has passed over to the Rainbow Bridge this morning.  She lived a long life (16 years) and was rescued from the Animal Shelter after someone had dropped her off on the side of the road.  She weighed 4 lbs. and was skin and bones and didn't trust anyone.  She never became a lap cat but she did enjoy snuggling at the end of my bed and purred happily.  This is actually the first cat I have lost in my life because I didn't get my first cat until I was 12 years old. 
I have to tell you the worst story about "Miss Min" because she had a bit of an improper peeing problem.  The worst instance of this was when I went to take my SAT early one Saturday morning and I was standing in the lobby of my high school when I noticed a distinct odor......cat urine.  She had peed on my coat and I hadn't noticed until then so it had soaked through my sweatshirt too.  I spent the entire SAT smelling that horrible smell (and everyone else around me too). 

She wasn't perfect, but she was beautiful and I loved her.  She was the first of my girl animals and for that she will always be remembered because the girls are truly my loves (Kaze, Snap, etc.).  I will miss you Jasmine, I wish I could have been with you at the end- I would have kissed you as you drifted away.

We're getting a REAL photoshoot!

Our Pet Insurance company thinks we're pretty photogenic and since we live w/n 15 minutes from their corporate headquarters....we get to have a photo shoot with their super duper expensive professional photographer!!!!!  AND it is going to be next week on Latte's birthday.  We're making the Lap Lady take off work for it (but not school....she refused to do that).  Now she gets to cat wrangle all 3 of us into their corporate office hehe....should be interesting!

Photo tease

We know we suck at blogging.  We figured you might like to see how adorable we all still are so we dug up a few from the Lap Lady's camera.  We added a few of her "other" photos which she has found more time to do than be our personal picture slave??!!

P.S. Chase seems to be doing a lot better and is hanging out with us instead of being in the sick room.

Farewell to our very Dear Friends

Today we lost two of the original cat bloggers: Fat Eric & Luxor.  Their loss makes us very sad but reminds us of the good times as well.  Lux hosted one of our most favorite competitions ever and he was a dear friend and kindred spirit of Kaze.  He and Kaze were the original Frootbats!

As for us we're chugging along, getting ready for The Woman's fall semester to start on Monday.  We never wanted to officially announce us leaving the Cat Blogosphere but by now it is pretty obvious we just don't have the time to put into everyone that is deserved.  We'll post from time to time though!  And if you could spare any purrs for me (Chase) I've been very sick for the past day vomitting and dire-rear pretty nasty but I seem to be getting better today.

Long time no see! Took matters into our own paws!

Wow, 3 months since our last post!  Summer session struck Meowmy and  she was totally useless.  She hasn't taken a picture of anything since May and that makes her sad, but it makes us cats MAD.  I decided to take matters into my own paws and take my own pictures to show you how thrilling our lives are. 

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis Episode).  I was sitting on Meowy's lap for this one getting some nice scritches.
The Toy Man is cooking (shocking I know) and Kaze is being nosy.  That is the rug sucking monster on the right there.
Sitting in the warm laundry. Mmmm warm.
This is the "cat room" aka guest room.  Meowmy stripped the bed because Kaze just had a bout of the squirts and they got everywhere.  It was a long squirts fest and she spent a lot of time in this room alone. 
The green thing is Meowmy's shoulder, the rug eating monster is in the back ground.  Meowmy was eating people food.
Hi Toy Man!!  That is his head; and my chin.

Meomy promises to take some pictures of us this week because she has THREE whole weeks off from school.  Sort of....  We've missed everything that has been going on including our 4 year Blogoversary.
