Catching Up

Sorry bloggers! I've been such a terrible blogging mommy. Life has slapped me in the face LOL.

I have all the participants for Paw It Forward.

To you all....I'm sorry I havent gotten them out yet!!! I'm going to try to by next weekend at the latest! Hope you all enjoy them!

Tygana and Pepper have been getting along so well lately. Actually on occasion playing...though it only lasts a few moments.
They both have their winter coats and the both feel so luscious I wish I had blankets of this stuff LOL.

I want to get the house cleaned up and see if I can get some sneak shots and what not of these two playing around. It's going on my to-do list which I really want to make. LOL

BTW:...on a random note. I decided I really would like a potato bin.....but why in the world do these things cost so much!?

One Year Blogoversary!


Today is my one year blogoversary!

Pepper: Yay 1 year!

Tygana: NO! not you me, your just months old here.

Pepper: :(

Tygana: Anyways.
Mom and I were really hoping to throw a bash complete with lots of pictures! We thank you all for the blogoversary wishes we have already recieved! Alas, as you can tell this a text dominated post....you see Mom is in this thing called....midterms, I dont know what that means but she keeps taking all these "tests".
The only test I think she should take is my test of how many treats I can eat in one sitting.

So I would like to make up for tonights faux paz....I am inviting you all to my house trashing this sunday, you see my the mom is working this weekend so its perfect! Dad will never notice!

Also, a few of my wonderful friends have been asking about my eye. The vet said it looked good and my eye pressure was ok to keep it. YAY! But for good measure he ordered an extra 2 to 3 days of antee-bee-okits.

Mom has let me out to enjoy the sun a couple times but not much and not for long. The piece of eye that was hanging is starting to come out too, the doctor said this would happen so we are just waiting for it to finish its journey. Thank you all so much for your concern.

In other news Pepper has been a bad boy, he is green at the gills at me so makes every dash he can to get outside and has succeeded three times! Sending Mom out after him and once Mom, Dad and the neighbor! That time he nearly got into the woods but the neighbor leaped right over and snatched his tail....anything to get him from going in there...the silly boy doesnt realize we have coyotes. So we got him back in...thank goodness....or not.

Well we always want to try and make your visits here worth your while so here's a bit of what I have been up to.

Paw It Forward! *Image heavy*

For those of you familiar with our wonderful friends Amy and The House of Cats you know they participated in Paw It Forward! They Pawed it on over to our house!

Pepper has never been more annoying! Silly young'ens.

Now for those of you who don't know what Paw It Forward is, think Pay It Forward, but with us furries!

Happiness in a box. From one woofie and kitty to 3 more and so on and so forth!

Now before we get into the wonderful contents of our box

Pepper: YES WONDERFUL!!! Where is that thing...ya know the thing it bouncies and ooooooo balll....*runs off*

Anyway as I was saying! Before we get to the contents of our box we would like everyone to know...
1. We are looking for kitties and woofies to Paw It Forward to now! First 3 volunteers get a paw it forward box from us!
2. Thank you so much Barney, Kirzon, Lola, Virgil, Gus and Stella oh and their Mom your all amazing and the box was wonderful!

Pepper: yesss it surely isss *falls over*

Silly boy.

Now for the story!

Mom got a knock at the door! The man in the bloo shorts had a package and she had no idea WHAT it might be! When she looked and saw Amy and The House of Cats she said OHHH!!

She opened that box.

and in went my little brother...Pepper. Its as if he doesn't know any better!
If you look closely you can see the box is beginning to hang off the table he kept knocking it around until...yes...he fell.

and of course...he just got right back in it.

Inside the box was this really cute or at least Mom tells me that its really cute brown bag, of course Pepper cares not for the bag but what is in it!

Mom took it before he dropped it on the floor.

Pepper: MY TURN!!!

First there was this thing in the bag Mom gave me!

What is this.....

Oh! It's a card from our friends! Thank you!!

There was this really cool in the bag! Good thing Tygana doesn't like balls or I would have to share this little jewel!
I don't if this thing is like a forever bug of some sort or what! But it's driving me crazy!

There was some wonderful catnip in there too!But Mom won't let me at it, because I would destroy it all!!!!!! MAUHA
I mean there was a serious amount of swag here!
but wait.....what is this!

This thing makes NOISE! I don't know if what I'm doing to it is enjoyable to it or not...but its fun for me!

There was also these smelly bubbles things, I havent quite figured them out yet but I enjoy watching them and have tried to chase a couple but they fall and dissapear.....is the floor eating them?

But theres this thing that just showed up yesterday, so I'm pretty positive it came out of this box!! It's so amazing I have no words that describe it but it makes me bonkers!

Who knows what this amazing things is!!!!! *runs in circles*

Tygana: I bet you all are wondering where I am....well seeing as this was Peppers first CB event...he went bonkers and TOOK OVER

BTW! It's almost our 1 year anniversary! 7 more days! We're hoping to put up a special post! So watch out!

Oh yeah and here I am enjoying some of the wonderful treats! YUM YUM!

Watch out Pepper some of those toys are mine too!

Thanks House of Cats!!!

Carnival Of The Cats #342

Hey Everyone!! Welcome to Carnival of the Cats #342!

I know I've been a real bad blogger lately...shame on me! No wait.....SHAME ON MOM! But I feel I still really want to do the COTCs I've committed to it keeps me connected! I try to get Mom to blog every night but she falls asleep on me! Anywho....here we go!

The Carnival of the Cats is a weekly roundup of cat-related posts on weblogs, in America, and around the world, who choose to submit a post for inclusion.

For us Cat Bloggers the Carnival is a chance to discover blogs we might never have heard of, on subjects of all kinds, and you can learn more about the carnival, and how to participate, here.

Oh Cat-synth you make not only my but my brother Pepper and my Moms heart sing with your support of LiveStrong Day! Why don't we all go and support CatSynth for supporting LiveStrong Day!

Over at Gattinas we got some investigative work going on, by TWO cats...one is looking for something and the other for a handout! Find the whole story here!

Little Pinchita hasn't been talked about for a while but now her Mom has a new blog up and running! turns out Pinchita got some devastating news but good things cats can live well through almost anything! We know Pinchita is just living the high life at home! Check it out for yourself!

Cheese? Ohhh yum yum!! *nom nom nom* Oh no someones coming *hides the cheese* What would you do if I hid the cheese from you? Maybe you would be something like this cat here!

Sometimes letting one of us go is the hardest thing for a human being to bear. How do you make the decision and how do you go about it with those close to you. Well this vet is wise and caring, her story for me goes beyond the words.

Charlie, I think really wants to stay at his home, he's so cute so tiny and just plain lovable! Let's convince his parents to keep him!

We all always knew Nikita was the cat with the silver tongue, but his Daddy betrayed him! Find out how!

Nikita has sent his Daddy on a mission! What kinda mission you may ask? Well one of great importance to the CB! To sniff out the origins of KC.

Wonderful News!

Tyganas follow-up appointment was today and he was cleared!!
The vet said his eye is looking good and healed nicely.
He still has some tissue hanging off his eye but that should fall off with time.
For now we will take 3 more days of antibiotics 3 times a day and we should be free and clear!
Thank you so much for all your purrs and purrayers!
Tygana loves you all!

Extra, Extra, Read All About It

Horrible News and Good News....

Last night there was a cat tussle downstairs.

It looks like Tygana got upset at Pepper for something and started chasing him around. Well Pepper got the last lick.
Tygana came into the bed with us and got on the headboard walked over to over my head and looked down.

A red tear dripped onto my pillow.

Pepper had gotten Tygana in the eye, a scratch.

I freaked out and got a piece of gauze because Tyganas eye was dripping, Oh boy was I unhappy with Pepper.

We clipped his nails....and boy was he not happy! So unhappy in fact he scratched my face! But all it left was dot of broken skin and blood...how strange.

Pepper wasn't allowed into the room the rest of the night, it acted as a Tygana sanctuary until the next day.

So I go to work this morning because I'm scheduled too and Tyganas vet doesn't open until 9am, I go in at 7:50AM

I try calling at 9.....busy busy busy

I try calling again at 9:30....ring ring baby!

So Tygana got an appt this afternoon! Thank goodness! If our vet made me wait again I would have just asked the vet I work for to look at him.

Pepper got Tygana in his bad eye and the Dr was looking at his eye like "this is wrong" and I had to explain why it was the way it was. Tygana got an eye stain but not much stain held just a dot. So now Tygana is on antibiotic drops 4 times a day for a week, then we go back to the vet when Tygana will get his eye pressure checked. I'm hoping everything will be ok.

I'm just glad for the antibiotics.

Oh babies..when will you learn.

10 days and counting!

Well starting to catch up on everything around the house and getting more used to my new schedule. This coming work and school week should be easier than any other because not a single day will I ever have to walk home for 2 miles! YAY!

So I'm hoping that either after this week or sometime during the week the blogging will be back to normal. I really need to catch up on taking pictures of Tygana and Pepper. They are enjoying the cooler weather and the open windows. So I have a question!

Whats everyones favorite baked good?!

26 August, 2010


Hey everyone! So sorry I have not updated this but I wanted to be sure of everything before I updated and to just be able to do it all at once. So here's your MC Tygana!!!

First of all, I want to apologize for Moms bad behavior, not only has she yet to record the video of Pepper but she hasn't been posting. Though I admit Mom has been quite busy this month...what with getting ready for school (she sent in an app, had to deal with the financial aid baddies (3 times), get registered, get books etc)
Then Mom started looking for a job, because well she needs one! So since Mom is going to go to school to be a vet tech that strongly recommend having experience in a vet setting, Mom has been getting wonderful stories and advice from Hansel and Teslas Mom but wanted some first hand non-volunteer animal experience. So she went about and applied at all 4 of our towns vets. 3 of them are right out front of our condos very much walking distance but of course..the one she gets is 2 miles away. MOL MOM.
So yes Mom has a job now! She's a kennel worker so she comes home smelling of weird dog slobber. Since Mom doesnt have her very own car yet Dad drops her off in the morning and she walked back her first day...ouch. So they borrowed a bike from one of my Grandpas but its his size so needless to say its too big for Mom but she tried riding it home today anyway. Not great but quicker than walking.She got a nice present from her new job.Check out that toe...OUCH!
So if you haven't guessed Mom is working the kennels....so me and pepper have just been sitting around, napping with her when she comes home and eating. Once she gets used to the new schedule shes planning on being more regular again....it might take a while though with school starting on the 30th. So sorry but Momma is trying to balance herself and we really don't want her burnt out shes no use that way. MOL We'll be back to normal ASAP

16 August, 2010


Sorry about moms lack of posts here lately! She's had a lot going on and just STILL couldn't bring herself to do it. So now as she sits waiting she said she would do it. Pepper and I have been doing fine were getting along much better. No we don't cuddle but we sniff and don't hiss. Daddy brought home this long box with three sections so pepper and I shared it.

Hey mom here the 3 week break for the worm meds is almost over, I knw tygana and pepper won't be looking forward to it. Be on the lookout though for some pepper video coming your way soon!

Let's Spread The Word

Hey everyone there's a new blog out there by the BCC (Branford Compassion Club) and I noticed they are really looking for a good home for this fella named Noah.


Though BCC does not do nationwide adoptions, I thought it could possibly be a big help if all us bloggers got together and spread word about Noah and maybe he will catch the eye of someone in the CT area that could give him just the perfect home!

I know we can do it! Let's help this guy out!

09 August, 2010

What a Time!

What a time it has been BCC, finally wednesday I can go and get the stuff done for a loan....FINALLY they make it so durn hard, I should have the cats laser eyes them!

Pepper is doing really well though one day I opened the back door to call Tygana in and next thing I knew I felt this super softness on my leg. I look down and theres this thing of black walking across the porch like nothing was wrong!
I had to scramble out to get Pepper back in before he went beyond the bushes.

He also did this amazing jump into this tiny window just for the privilege of looking outside LOL. I got to get this on video!

Tygana is getting back into his normal schedule and taking advantage of the warm weather I think he knows winter is around the corner!

06 August, 2010

Pepper Doodle Friday

Finally my first single, me only post!

So I've taken to the windows like Tygana takes to the outdoors, Mom won't let me out she says I'm young enough to change my ways..phooey. But I guess it's not so bad in this house it's always cool and with all this fur I could sure use that cool air!

So I want to tell you guys about this chair, Daddy sits in it all day when he's home so I take it it's a real nice chair. Tygana is always telling me how scary the chair is and to steer clear and be wary! But the chair is leather and I feel the coolness radiating off of it sometimes...so I decided to check it out.

Me likey.

Carnival Of The Cats #333

Alright it's Sunday! That means it's time for Carnival of the Cats!
So go ahead bring out the clowns, the popcorn, the strong cats! It's all here at weeks end!

Whoa.....hmmm, Let's try the next act!! The Stunt cat!!
Now remember kittens do not try this at home and whenever trying new things always wear a helmet!
Wow what a performance stunt cat!

Now for the main event!

So sit back, relax get comfortable and prepare for the carnival!
Do you ever look around and wonder where your house went? Maybe it seems like your living in a giant cat or dog house...well check out this article to see if your home fits the criteria!

Do you ever feel like your cats are in a conspiracy against you? Maybe they are or maybe they just love you so much you can't tell the difference. Either way check out this article!

Isn't Audace just a cutie!! In case you've never seen Audace, how do you feel about little cats playing? If you love that you will this video!

Come and celebrate Wynnies life on this 49th night since her passing. We all know she's in a wonderful place on the other side of the rainbow bridge.
Maddie sure has found herself in quite the unpleasant situation. She may possibly need some old fashioned treat baking assistance, you the kind with extra gifts inside. If you need more hints as to what to send her just check out this post.

Nikita and Elvira are needed on the spot! These two kitties wear many hats and tonight that hat just happens to sport a red cross...yep Nurse Nikita and Elvira your needed in the E.R.

Breaking in the new pussycats is always hard work, but it's even harder when the new one is well let's say.....super curious! Watch as Nikita tries to steer Elvira through living at home.
Nikita is quite the storyteller but a storyteller is nothing without a good story! Well Elvira brought that story straight to Nikitas front door and with it they won a contest from Love Meow! How exciting!

Loving a musician is always hard between rehearsals, performances, practice and sometimes creating finding that special time together can be hard. Take Luna for example, right now her Daddy is hard at work rehearsing along with all the things he has for his everyday life! Whats a cat to do? Well check out Luna's answer.

Seems like the Mom of WhenCatsAttack feel unappreciated until it comes time to open the stinky goodness! But is it really true or is she exaggerating? Get on over there and judge for yourself!

Samantha and Clemmy are two super fun cats! In fact they have a game they want to teach your this week! Also, Maverick has some great news! He got some super swag from Peggy and the gang! Pawsome!!

Now that that that that that's all folks! Till next week! We will see you at iMeowza!

Finally Friday!

Hey everybody! Really sorry we haven't been leaving comments lately but be sure we are reading your blogs!

We just can't get Mom to comment lately. Here's what we have been up to.

Pepper and I have been getting dewormed today is day 1 of our 3 weeks off the gross yellowy stuff.

The Mom has her college placement tests coming up on the 2nd and since it's been so dang long since she was in school (about 2 years to be exact) she has decided to try brushing a bit. Especially with the maths...I mean I love my Mom but boy is she stupid when it comes to numbers. Thank goodness as a cat everything I need comes naturally.

The mom has also been working on making a window sill blanket for Pepper and I because we're making a furry mess in the cracks between the window and the window sill so she figures covering it with something will fix it, what she doesnt realize is that cat fur is magical.

Oh and last but certainly not least! COTC is coming to OneCatsNip this Sunday so Mom is working on putting that together! How exciting!!! Don't forget to send in your submissions!!


Now for your viewing pleasure!

Worms are ICK

Hey Everyone Tygana and Pepper here!

Well we must say one thing for Mom and Dad leaving it really left us to work out some cat issues!
We're doing a fair bit better now-a-days

Tygana: Though Pepper still isnt allowed in my room at night
Pepper: But I was sure in there this morning!

So today was Peppers appointment with the V-E-T and Mom brought along some of my tootsie rolls! Can you believe that?!

Mom and Pepper came home with the dewormer and Mom started us today, so it's 2 days on 3 weeks off and 2 days on.

The V-E-T told Mom if they find anything other than the roundworms they will give her a call.

Pepper: The V-E-T also said that I'm a bit underweight for my size but she said it's probably because of the worms so after we get them taken care of we're going to keep an eye to see if I gain.

Mom: Tygana has also been losing some weight so I'm also going to keep an eye on him after the dewormer to be sure he gains some back, then again it could be his age making it hard for him to hold the weight either way we're gonna do what we can for it.

Tygana: BTW did I mention this dewormer crap Mom gave me tastes absolutely dreadful! I'm wondering if this V-E-T is related to Fin's crackpot because who in their right mind gives cats something that tastes so awful...I mean...were cats!

27 July, 2010


The beans are back and booyyyyy Dad was not happy about his chair!
HAH! Thats what he gets!

Everyone did such a wonderful job at the house trashing Mom has been so busy cleaning up and I have a feeling she will be doing it for days!

Thanks everyone!

23 July, 2010

House Trashing!!

Alright guys Noll had a great idea!

Since the beans are gone we should house trash! Theres plenty of stuff around the house to trash...seriously just let's not trash my condo. There's a WHITE couch well I should say dingy white cause Mom let us have the run of it anyway so yea.....but the couch is really low so easy to hop on even all nipped out!
Theres windows to get into tables to be on really tall shelves, stacks of pillows!!

I got the fancy feast and a fresh nip plant along with some evo dry.

Come on over but BYO anything you want that I don't have feel free to bring it over!

Pepper: YAYY!!!! Let's party!!

We're both SO ready!
