This, that and the other on a thoughtful Thursday...
So, the window perches were a big hit yesterday! Indeed, I do spoil my kitties rotten as much as I can; they're worth it. To answer a couple of questions that came up in the comments: No, I didn't make them, I bought them (I ain't that talented ). Don't remember where exactly, might have been eBay actually. They're almost like this one but I won't swear it's exactly the same. They have the same kind of eggcrate foam underneath the sheepskin covering that that linked one apparently has.
On another question, the pictures show the use of two different perches; Bugsy, Sassy and Roxy were in the left-hand den window perch, and Pixie and Callie were in the right-hand den window perch (obviously not at the same time ). I don't think I have any pictures of any of them in the front living room window perch (which is the same kind, just a different window and view), although it does get used; just not as much. They really are good at sharing and taking turns!
Now, I'm afraid I must confess and disappoint you kitties, and let you know that, despite my kids' best efforts, the loud noisy vacuum monster did in fact get unboxed, assembled, and - yes - USED this past weekend. They were devastated. But to show again what a good Mommy I am and how much I spoil them, I then weighted down the box, resealed it and put it back where it had sat for 10 days. Why, you may ask? Well, Bugsy especially had grown very fond of napping on top of it. I mean for hours at a time. And he, as well as Pixie and Callie, seemed to enjoy using it as a ladder to be able to look around the curtain of the door's window (as shown in Callie's Tuesday post) to see what's going on outside on that side of the house. Not to mention, how cute has it been to come home and be greeted with a kitty face peeking at me out of the curtain as if to say "Oh hai, Mommy! Welcome home!" So...at least for awhile, it'll stay there (not like I'm using that space for anything else anyway!).
Woke up this morning to dark skies, rumbly thunder, and rain. As I was warm and comfy under the covers, it really made me wish I was a cat and could just yawn, stretch, and turn over for another nap. Alas, I had to get up for the "work" thing...
And last, but certainly not least, our dear friend Jasmim has given us the "Blog Like a Pearl" award - thank you so much!
According to Jasmim and her mom, the words on the picture translate to: "Your blog is like a pearl, rare, delicate and charming."
That's so pretty! The rules for this award are:
1. Post the link of who sent you.
2. Submit to 6 blogs that you think is a pearl and emotion.
I do so hate choosing who to give awards to (I like everyone!), but I also don't really like to fall back on the "hey, anyone take it" option either. So I guess I'll give this to the following peoples (but everybody, know that we love you all!):
1. Baby Patches
2. Daisy the Curly Cat
3. The Island Cats
4. Hansel and Tesla
5. Cory Cat Blog
6. Ginger Jasper
Enough ramblings for today. If only the weekend would get here a little faster!
