Tocks Thursday!

Today is:


We didn’t know Derby but we are celebrating TockTober nonetheless! Here are two extraordinary tocks!

First up is BobbieSue – she of the tailless tocks! Mom tried to get a good photo of her but unless she’s asleep its no use – she runs from the camera – or maybe its mom!


Here are my fabulous tocks! Quite nice if I do say so myself! This was taken Tuesday while we were waiting on the cable man.1020-tock

Speaking of the cable/internet saga – it seems the ‘maintenance crew’ from Cox Cable (who, by the way, suck – if you have a choice of cable/internet providers do NOT go with these incompetent fools – these are mom’s words, not mine) came out to replace the line but decided the tree was in the way and said it was a ‘liability’ so they did NOTHING! Even left the old wire in the tree.

1020aMom spoke with them last night and afterward was quite upset. So upset that I had to hold her paw while she tried to go to sleep later.

1020-c I lay right next to her head and purred, at least until I fell asleep. Now she has to call the landlord, have the tree trimmed and then call stupid Cox again to have them come out. The way I see it – and the cable guy on Tuesday saw it, the incompetent maintenance fools crew couldn’t see they could string the wire from a different location and all would be well. So we are taking up residence at the library  until further notice!

So we don’t end on a sour note, here’s a sweet photo of Granmama’s  kitty, Moose, giving her a loving look. 1020b Moosey is an old sweetie and the last of his brothers. We hope he is with us for a long time!

We’re Having a Witchy-Caturday Art!!

We’ve been posting some of last year’s Halloween’s art but today we have new art!!! We are witches and warlocks today!!!







On another a note, we were asked why does everybody avoid PeggySue (see our answers from our Sunshine post this past Thursday)? Here’s why – and some of the answers include mom, although she doesn’t avoid PeggySue like us!

  • She doesn’t know how to play nice – she bites and claws
  • She doesn’t enjoying petting – mom can give her just one stroke or two and she bites mom’s hands and fingers
  • She’s a lurker – she hides around corners and doors and when we walk by she attacks! She even attacks mom!
  • She steals our treats – she inhales her treats so fast she’ll eat what’s left of everybody else’s. To prevent her from doing that mom gives her more treats (to keep her eating longer) than the rest of us and that’s not fair.
  • We were a genteel house of older cats who lived a dignified life – now we have the lightening fast PeggySue running around being a rambunctious young whippersnapper who is driving us all to distraction!!! For some reason unbeknownst to us, mom sees a lot of potential in her as she settles down. When will that be, Mom?

Friendly Friday Fill-in Time!!

100It’s time for Friendly Friday Fill-ins!! 


My favorite store is anything on-line! Mom absolutely hates shopping. If she could afford to have groceries delivered, she would!!online-shopping-hi


 An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is Mom and I prayed that we would be able to buy a house in Savannah, Georgia, when we lived there years ago. But it didn’t come through and we were able to move back to Virginia with no problems. But on the other hand, maybe God did answer our prayer – He just said “No!”100_1980


At Halloween, I don’t dress up or get special treats. It’s just another day to us! 



I believe in the supernatural, because angels are with us every day.

Sunday Selfies with Toby and guests!!

Hey folks!! I went to Joe’s debate this week! It was great – Joe’s answers to everybody’s question were outstanding. The moderator, Kong, even asked one of my questions!! While there, I was able to grab some selfies with Kong and even Joe, himself!!!!

tobysquestion1Phoebe (15 and Meowing) was the cue card holder (and also Joe’s speech Writer) and made sure my question was first!  Thanks Phoebe!


Then I had a selfie taken with the great Joe himself!! Of course, I thought Joe’s answer was spot on!!


Thanks to Campaign Manager, Nellie (Nellie on the Edge), for securing these selfies for me!!! Thanks, Miss Nellie! You’re the best!!! After Joe and Smoke win the election, they need to send you on a nice, long vacation to Hawaii for all the hard work you’ve done this year!!
