We're still here!

First of all I apologize in advance for the iPhone pictures, it is all the pathetic Woman can handle these days. ~ Chase

Hi everyone, sorry we haven't posted since October, we know that is pathetic.  2L year is pretty busy for the Woman and right now she is in the middle of her finals.  Taking exams and studying makes her useless at work so Rufus (we'll get to that in a minute) convinced her to update our blog. 

First of all, how cool is this?  Remember our professional photoshoot?  Well we are the February picture for the Pet Plan 2011 calendar!  Our Vet even called the Woman because he saw it and thought it was super cool.

The three of are all doing really well.  Kaze is enjoying the heatbox and Latte is doing his manipulative stuff and pushing her out of the warm corner.  I (Chase) am being really frisky and playful and even snuggling withe the Woman on occasion.  Nothing really too much to write about in our lives because we're totally neglected by the Woman because she is either at work or at school.  The Awesome Man does his best to keep us happy. 


So Rufus......well I'll let him tell his own story.

Hi everyone!!  I am Rufus!!  I have a name!!!!  One day I was outside and I walked into this big yard and this really nice lady came outside and gave me fuds.  Good fuds.  So I let her pet me and then I decided I really liked her petting me so I kept on coming back and asking for fuds and luvs.  I stand on the trash cans outside her windows and look at her and meow and purr and that guilts her into coming out to play with me and snuggle me.  Really I'm intent on coming insides to that office place but the lady says she doesn't have the final say in that. 

So for about a month or so I kept on coming back and getting fuds and luvs and naps in a safe place.  Last week something so cool happened!!!  A little cat house showed up just for me!  The lady said she and the "Awesome Man" built it and put insulation inside and even an outdoor cat heater pad.  I LUVS IT!!!!  I can nap in it and stay warm and cozy and escape the bitter windy colds.  I hate the colds. 

This is what I did for a bed before my "roof for rufus"

This is my rain barrel sunning spot.

So I'm a happy kitty and the lady says she's a happy lady because she gets to have an office kitty.  She named me after her grandparent's cat from when she was a little girl.  She checked to make sure I have a lack of "boy bits" (i don't have them) and put flea meds on me and says sometime soon I'm going to have to visit the VET man to get shots.  This does not sound fun.  But she says I'm also going to get a cool collar with my name on it.  So I guess I'm now an honorary "Cat's P". 
There is a nice kitty heater in the floor!
They all seem to think I'm really cool.
I'm so cute!!

Rufus, what a lucky cat you are to find such a nice place to live. Latte, I shall look forward to any lawyerly advice your person can give me on intellectual property rights. I mean, Ichiro might be trying to steal my brain. Or at least my blog.

Oh, oh, oh...so much news! And we see you now gots an orangey outside kitty like we do (though we haven't seen them yet as Teri hasn't gotten our outdoor viewing area straightened up yet).

She made a little house just like Rufus' and is going to borrow one of our heat pads to put inside since she hasn't seen either TomTom or Mama Katz go inside the box yet.

Thanks for catching us up!

Hiya, Rufus! You are one lucky cat! A heat floor sounds awesome!

Boo said...

Hey you might not remember (it’s been a while) Jinx the Siamese cat from the Isle of Wight. She sadly passed away in August this year... She was listed on simply Siamese and her blog was called ‘Under the Stairs’ if that helps you to remember :)
I have since started a new blog up with my two oriental Siamese cats please come by and have a scroll/follow. :)
Please could you help spread the word about our new blog as we don’t have many friends and followers at the moment?
Thanks
Yazmin, Boo- Bear and Luka

My mom sympathizes with your mom on the blogging thing. It has been quite the year for us, too. We think she needs to work on her secretarial skills as far as we are concerned, but she DID make a brand-new blog space for us.

Rufus is a lucky cat!

In case you were unaware, we have moved our blog from blogspot to our own new webspace @ http://www.tabbynormal.com/ and are currently in the process of updating our friends-list (of course you're on it!).

Now, Tabby Normal is for all friends of tabby-cats in the International Tabby Community! Stop by and say hello, and join our facebook group, too, @ http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_176622229024827

Happy Holidays!
Love,
Abby Normal and Ms. C

Your calendar picture is gorgeous! We are so happy that your mom is taking such good care of Rufus. He's one very lucky kitty.

jenianddean said...

I really hope your Mom's finals went well and that you all had a very Merry Christmas and that you made your Mom rest some. I know how hard it can be having a bean who goes back to school.

And how great is that for Rufus! I'm sure he's appreciating that roof right about now. Brr.
