Thanks Lady Boo and Abby, Ping, Gracie, and Jinx. We really appreciate it and think you are excellent too (Jack especially thinks that his Boo is the most wonderful kitty alive but he is a bit biased).
Also, Lyra and Caesar tagged us for a meme! Here it is!
In this meme you have to tell everykitty 3 things that are new with you! Link it back to the kitty who gave it to you and Tigmuthep and pass it on to 3 more kitties you'd like to know more about!
1. Since Samwise has been not feeling well, we've been guarding him against Beaux. This means that we get to lay on the back of the couch while Sam spreads out on the cushions and Beaux gets the hardwood floor to lay on! hahahahaha!
2. Lately we've been insisting that we get to sleep on the big bed with the beans at night. Jack curls up around Mommy's ankles and Dante curls up around Mommy's shoulder. We let Samwise (since he is hurt) sleep next to Daddy but we get Mommy! A kitty has to stay warm and snuggling in January after all.
3. Our beans finally bought us new blinds for the big picture window in the living room. We had horizontal blinds before and we had to poke our heads through and hold down the blinds below us and such to look out before but now they bought vertical blinds for us because it makes it easier for us to look outside. We are very spoiled kitties.
Thanks again to everyone who sent their purrs and good wishes to Samwise. He is feeling much better and his owwie looks a lot better too!! We will take care of him and protect him from Beaux until he is completely healed!

We love this picture too because it shows just how piratey we can be (whatcha think Lady Boo and Pearl - are we good looking pirate kitties?). Thanks to Maggy and Zoey for such great pictures. We really like them lots!!!
One last puppy update - the boys seem to be feeling so much better and they were able to keep down their normal food last night. Thank you for purring for them and sending them your purryers too!

When Mommy came home last night she found that someone had vomitted and pooped all over the house. It was bad enough that Daddy had to go out and rent a carpet cleaner just to clean up all the messes. The horrid thing is that we all think that itss not just one sick doggie but that both of them are sick! Both are acting very off and instead of running and jumping around like they usually do, they are just laying about. Aunt Susan came over and checked on them last night and said it is probably something they ate (probably in the backyard since Mom cannot find anything they could have gotten into yesterday as they are restricted to only certain areas of the house when the beans are not home) but right now she does not think they need medication or fluids. She says sometimes these things really just need to work themselves out. She gave them some bland sick woofie dog food - I/D Canine - and will come back later today to check again if they are not much better.
We know some of you kitties do not like woofies - even Dante talks bad about Beaux lots - but if you could send them some good and healing purrs we would be very thankful.

Yes, that is Jack eating the main cookie and Dante was eating a small piece of it! Soon after this Jack picked up the treat and ran away with it! Yes folks, both kitties partaked of a woofie treat!!!
Okay Mommy, hush! We were just making sure it was not nasty enough to kill Samwise. It's not like we actually enjoyed it!!!
Hmph! Silly humans. Dante here and I have been tagged for a meme by Abby! Here it is!
This meme was created by the charming cats at http://www.petspics.blogspot.com/.The rules are: you have to post who tagged you and link back to them and then to petspics.blogspot.com. Then you have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal. What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?
1. I would get into the fridge and cabinets and sample everything I found even remotely interesting. My beans keep shooing me off of the human food so I know its all gotta be good!
2. I would beat up Beaux so badly he would stay outside for always because he would be afraid to come in and face me. I would say I would beat him up so badly he would run away but that would make Mommy and Daddy sad, so staying outside forever in the backyard works too.
3. I would hold one rip roaring awesome party aboard the Black Furrball for all the kitties on the blogosphere to attend. No human supervision either. Just us kitties with all the food and all the fun we could stand!!
Since I think that this meme has been rounds lots, I tag anyone who has not done it and wants too! Happy Friday everyone!

Here are the rules for the Nicknames Meme:
Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you. Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
Real Name: Dante
We're going to do Abby's meme tommorow since this one turned out so big!!

If you said, "Oh Jack likes the Nip!" you would be right! This is me on Dante's Boogie Mat (it's orange to match his ginger furrs - mine is actually blue) loving the Nip!! Mom says to tell you that the spots you see on the carpet are not dirt, but are actually even more nip because I go a bit crazy when she puts nip on top of the Boogie for me to roll around on and eat as well! Oh nip is so wonderful!!
This second picture was taken right after I jumped onto the big bed and fell into a Nip induced coma.
Yes these are my tuxie toes. As you can see, even my paw pads are tuxie with some being black and some being pink (pink is the paw pad version of white Mom says). However, one of my back foots has all black paw pads.
Happy Tuxie Tuesday everyone and love to my favorite Tuxie of them all - my beautiful Lady Boo!!

Storm is a very beautiful doggie that was adopted by our Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave. Believe it or not, Storm has actually been a mother already but after she had her puppies, those owners decided that they did not want her (they just wanted her puppies) so they took her to the pound. A rescue group got her from the pound and adopted her out to a man that was very mean to her for a few months before he finally did one nice thing and returned her back to the rescue group. Thankfully, Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave were looking for another dog right at the same time and had gone to the rescue group to look at another doggie but fell in love with Storm instead. When the group told them that they would only adopt Storm out to someone who could work with an abused dog Aunt Susan said "Great, I am a V-E-T and I want her!" so Storm got to come live with them. Want to see a picture of my lovely girlfriend? Here she is!
Isn't she just beautiful? She was named after the character on X Men, Storm, who could do lots of superhero things.
Have a great weekend everyone!!

I have no clue why he would want to do that. When Mommy came home last night it had happened again so she called Aunt Susan to ask her V-E-Tly advice. After she finished laughing (yes, Aunt Susan has a weird sense of humor) and asking Mommy some questions Aunt Susan said that yes, it is probably behavioral and a dominance thing and to try seperating the bowls. So far Aunt Susan does not want to take either of us to work (that's human code for Aunt Susan taking us to her V-E-T hospital and doing V-E-T things to us) but if one of us has to go, she will start with Captain Jack cause she thinks it is him doing the deed too.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The Captain will have to go in the PTU before me! HAHAHAHAHA! Serves him right too!! Revenge is so sweet. Until he can behave himself I refuse to play Thundering Herd or Chase the Kitty with him. Instead, I will sit here and enjoy my window....is there any special kitty that would like to come and enjoy the view with me??

Again, for those of you who do not know, our V-E-T is really our Aunt Susan (Uncle Dave's wife and one of our Mommy's best friends). Well, she went to vet school at the college that won the game last night, LSU (Louisiana State University). And while Aunt Susan was at vet school, one of the first kitties she ever got to care for was very special - can you guess who that kitty was?

Dante supervises the cooking from his perch on the kitchen utility cart, instructing Daddy on how to best cook the eggs. (If you look behind him on the counter, you will see our wonderful fountain too! It's up there so no nasty doggies can drink our filtered water).
Captain Jack supervises the lower part of the cooking. He makes sure that no food that falls on the floor goes uneaten. (Yes, those are Daddy's legs in his slippers and pajamas - it was breakfast we were cooking and for some reasons our humans hate getting out of their pajamas on Sundays). If you look really closely at the top of the picture, you can see Dante's toesies perched on the cart like in the picture above.
In other news, we have decided that Dante shall have a title as well. From now on, his official title will be "Sir Dante Barbossa, First Mate and Lieutenant" but we may just call him Sir Dante for short. What do you kitties think???

One more thing, and its something Dante has been thinking a lot about. When the lovely Diamond Emerald-Eyes gave him his special award that we blogged about yesterday, the lady said she thinks that Dante needs a title too (cause Jack is a Captain and all and Dante is just Dante). What do you kitties think? Should Dante be given a title too? What should it be?
Thursday, January 3, 2008
The first kitty we would like to give this award to is Samantha. We think she is a true princess who may have found her own prince.
The second kitty we want to give this award to is Pearl because well, Dante is blushing too much to say at the moment....teehee.
Since we got the award twice, we should get to give this award out four times, don'tcha think?
So the third kitty we want to give this award to is Tybalt and family. We do this in honor of the award that Hendrix and his Mommy gave us. As we have known Hendrix and his Mommy for a very long time, we have also known Tybalt and his Mommy for a long time too - Mommy says at least 10 years. Our Mommies met in college when they were just undergraduates and they managed to even finish graduate school together. Hi Aunt Rini!!
Finally, we give this award to Dragonheart. We think that any kitty who can be such a good ambassador for an entire breed and such an awesome big brother at the same time deserves it!
