Farewell Cookie


Last week we said goodbye to Cookie





He died of heart failure, June 13, 2016, after living with his condition for a very long time.  He was also a cancer survivor - and then he went blind five years ago.   He lived to be 19 years, at least we estimate that he was about that age.  None of us know his beginnings in life and he didn't share them with us, as he simply lived in the moment.  He had spent his last nine years happily with all of us and we miss him.

We will share some of the good times we had with Cookie over the years.

He was very helpful when TeamTabby was working on a blogpost.
He made sure we posted pictures of all of us and of course snoopervised while our mombean got the 'news' typed and ready to send.

Cookie in the office chair - if you are supervising the posts - where else would one be?

Cookie's favorite room was the office.


He really liked this pink rug, says it gave him the most comfy nap spot.

 In the dining room where he could watch all the proceedings.....or is that his opportunities?

 Do any of you like to get up on top of the refrigerator?


We miss you lots, Cookie.  We know, as you crossed the "Rainbow Bridge" you had lots of furriends and your furrcousin angels, waiting to greet you.
Always in our hearts

Purrs and love from,
Moe
Mindy
Mike 
dadbean, and mombean Nina

Thank you Zoolatry
for this lovely graphic in remembrance of Cookie

Tabbies on Thursday


Last time we reported, we had snow in our yard.  Not now!

The grass and weeds are leaping up from the ground, and the pheasant is almost able to hide from the camera in them!


Moe
Dadbean,that is exactly the right spot! 


Mindy
Our humans took advantage of the good weather and joined a walk.

Here is what it is about:


They chose the walk near the harbour and the power generating station.

Lots of people joined in

including dadbean and aunti bean


Mike
I did not sign up for the walk, I rested up instead.


Cookie
Me too!
One more thing, our amaryllis has decided to re-bloom.
 Perhaps our mombean has a 'green' thumb after all!

 Enjoy the coming weekend everyone!

Snowed Again!


Yes, you read that right!  We did get some snow, not much, but enough to cover the ground.

and the roof!

our yard, too - but it won't last long.

Mike
 I have the office chair to snooze on - I'm supposed to supervising our blog post.


Moe
 I have a chair as well. It is situated - downstairs - so that I can keep watch on all that goes on, especially what happens in the kitchen.


Cookie
 I have snacks,  handy - in my nap spot.


Mindy
That leaves me to actually keep a watchful eye on things.

We are looking forward to the return of the sun and warmer weather, which we did have - just not today.

So, visitors, we want to know how 'your' day is going!
Let us know

Caterday in April


Moe
It's me, Moe and it is the weekend.  I am enjoying the fact that our snow is finally GONE!
I think the last tiny patch melted yesterday.

Here are a couple of photos mombean took last weekend.
Our dadbean is on the right, and his sister-in-law and brother are on the left.
It was a nice day so they went for a walk on Deadman's Island.
 
here is a link:
 
Some of the early wild flowers they saw

Mike
I am making sure our weekend post gets - posted!
 
Mindy

Cookie

Oh, yes, one more photo
Happy Spring everyone!

April Fool's Day


 April 1st is, according to what we heard,  also called April Fool's Day.  
Okay, we had to get our typist to look this up in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for us.... cats.  We found out that this means it is a "prank" day. 

Moe
I figure we do not need a special day to pull a prank.  Instead I am going to catch up on some sleep.

Mindy
Oh, did you say that this was some sort of special day for pranks?


Mike
Oh, I did a prank on my humans, they were not amused.  I think I might have heard some bad words first thing this morning.

Cookie
I hate pranks, so I am glad to hear the foolishness stops at lunchtime.

Is it noon yet?
It is certainly snack time.


Have a great day, but don't get fooled!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Mike says:
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
 Now where's my treat?
 
 Mindy
Wishing a great St. Patrick's Day to all!
 
Moe
 Me, too!  (I am glad I didn't have to wear that hat though)


Cookie
I've just got my eye drop medication, so I don't look my best, however 'top 'o the morning to all'


Mike again
I can relax now - we have officially 'celebrated' and I can go back to having a snooze.

Have a great day everyone!

Snow on Friday!

Mindy says:

Last Friday when we posted there was snow and our pretty snowdrops, out in the garden, got covered over.   Quickly, the snow melted and we saw the pretty flowers again.  However, here it is Friday once more  and .....you have guessed by now our pretty flowers are covered in snow!


Mike
I was hoping for some rays of sunshine to bask in today.  I even picked out a spot near the window for my nap.


Moe
There are always birds to watch and introoders to watch out for.



Cookie
  Nap time for me and with a snack beside me, I am quite content!


Mindy
 I'll let you all know when the snowflakes stop.  Meanwhile, have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Finally Friday!


We are not complaining about our Friday!  
We have a lovely, sunny day.  It is cold outside, however we are inside so it doesn't matter.

We looked out of our window and saw these lovely flowers.


These are called snowdrops.  As a matter of fact, we are told that tomorrow we are getting some snow.  They are well named!!

Mindy
 For today I will soak up as many of those rays of sunshine as I can possibly get.

Moe
 Good idea, Mindy.....look, I caught a ray of that sunshine!

Ah, we thought Cookie and Mike were going to say a few words - nope - they are very busy snoozing - maybe later they will say a few words.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone .....(without a snowstorm on its way!)
