Our First Thusday Thirteen

For today's post, we are going to do out first ever Thursday Thirteen - and it will be all about us and our family!

1. Okay, Mommy says we have to say this first - it's about yesterday's photo of Samwise in the cat bed - well, it actually belongs to Samwise, not us. He shares it with us. You see, when Samwise was first found, he lived with Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave for a week (they were looking for his family before adopting him out) and they kept him kenneled in their garage when they were not home. Well, every time they would let him out he would run and jump into that cat bed - an older one that they kept in the garage. When Mommy and Daddy adopted Samwise, Aunt Susan gave him the cat bed he liked so much - so yeah, it's actually his! He shares whenever we want to sleep there though.

2. Mommy calls Dante Don-Juante (Don Juan and Dante combined) at times because she says he is such a lover kitty. Often she just calls him Juan for short.

3. Captain Jack's favorite toy is a feather ball teaser that Mommy can only find at Petco. He is on his third one (see pic below).

4. Beaux can jump up and catch treats in the air and he learned how to do this all on his own!

5. Samwise loves to sleep on his back. Mommy calls this his comfy sleep position. We have a pic of this too cause you have to see how silly it looks!

6. Dante's favorite room in the whole house is the guest bathroom. He likes to hang out in the doorway (see picture below) and will escourt all guests into the bathroom when they enter. Mommy thinks this is because that was were he was quarantined when he first came to live with us.

7. Aunt Susan calls Captain Jack a "Holstein" because he is black and white and really big just like a holstein cow.

8. Beaux is not a morning dog - he loves to climb into bed with Mommy and Daddy and refuses to go outside even when they tell him he has too.

9. When asked what breed Samwise is, Mommy and Daddy say he is a "Spring Board" - half Border Collie and half Springer Spaniel. Aunt Susan says he is a Sheltie not a Border Collie but Mommy says that Spring Sheltie just does not sound as cute to say.

10. Dante has a large scar on his back where no furrs grow (his furrs beside it cover it). The scar came from a bad injury he had when he came to live with us. Daddy thinks that a car fan belt hurt Dante's back because Dante was keeping warm in a car engine when the car's owner started the engine. Dante is all fine now - just scarred - which makes him an even scarier pirate kitty.

11. Captain Jack loves to play with straws. He will steal them out of Mommy's drinks - even if it means spilling the drink everywhere!!

12. Beaux is an escape artist. Mommy and Daddy have had to lay chicken wire on the bottom of the backyard fence to keep Beaux from digging under the fence and escaping.

13. Did you guys know that Tybalt's Mommy is our Mommy's bestest friend?? Yep! They have known each other for about 10 years! That's a really long time!!

Wow! That was very informative. I had no idea Dante was such a scared and scarey pirate cat!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Terrific TT, we lerned lots about yoo guys. Maybe Zippy and Dante could get together and talk about der trawmatic beginnings...

Tybalt said...

Mommy says not to make her feel old.

Dante looks like he can't wait to escort someone to the potty, and Samwise looks super comfy! Loki sleeps like that when he is really gone to the world. We laugh at him for it.

Sunny's Mommy said...

It's nice to learn more about all the kitties, and doggy, in your home :-)

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

It seems that Dante sure has been through a lot. I am glad Don Juante has such a good home now.

That's a good list that tells us a lot about you. I especially like that name Don Juan-te. It tells me your human loves you a lot.

Awesome! That was great to read, and very funny too! And no, we had NO idea your Mom and Tybalt's are friends, that is so cool!

Tyler said...

Hi guys! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I used to very active here during the summer months. Then it became quite difficut for my mum to get away from her duties so we weren't blogging. We're going to try to do a little bit every now and then. Your woofie Samwise is fluffy for a dog. I couldn't tell where he began or ended in that picture of him sleeping on his back. Once I realized he was a dog, it was easier to figure out. It's really great to meet you two.
