Seeing spots

I'm seeing black and white spots this weekend. In my care are 6 tuxedos, 1 cream & 1 brown tabby. All greet me with tails up
but one who prefers to hide out 'til the scary cat-sitter leaves. I can't win them all all of the time.  The tuxedos are all different but two. These ones have exquisite markings and look very much alike.
One likes to climb up my leg while the other is in my cat-bag.
Aren't they beautiful. Two 1 1/2 year old boys, Ripley & Nico.

It was great to get so much feed-back on my last post regarding feeding our cats. I never preach and I don't give any medical advice on this blog. I am not a vet or a vet-tech so I stay clear of that. I just know what works and has worked for years with my own cats and hope that perhaps some of my routine can help you out if you are questioning your feeding regime.

One thing I didn't mention was the fact that I also add a little bit of 'hairball remedy' dry to the grain-free. I use Performatrin Hairball dry. I throw maybe a dozen of those in each day to help the hair pass through without difficulty. Many of the hairball gels can cause diarrea in cats and unfortunately that sometimes happens here so to avoid that I have started this addition to their food. Someone also mentioned giving their cat sweet potato in their moist food for extra fibre. Fabulous idea. Pumpkin can also be used.

I took a few minutes today to look at the tea-cups I got at the auction. Many were just in the bottom of a box so it was fun going through them. I'm keeping three, giving one to my friend, Sue from 'Just Sayin' it made me think of her so that's where it needs to be and the rest I will be posting and giving away.

Have a great weekend. My camera is working overtime with these beautiful charges I have. I'm sure they will complain about the paparazzi being hired for them. You'll meet the rest soon. Back home, things seem pretty normal for a rainy day.
These two are doing great and enjoying each other's company every day.

hugs, Deb


  1. I'm jealous of Lily! I want to snorgle Mr. Ed.

  2. With all those Tuxedos you'll able to have your own Jellicle Ball.
    I add inulin fibre (Metamucil but own brand) to food (1/4 tsp per day) to those who need it....keeps those anal glands from being stinky!

  3. All so purrdy!
    I am looking forward to my teacup.
    Silly Audrey. She has too many things to do.
    Hope Riley doesn't feel too bad and her Nana's muffins make her feel better. You know I am jealous that you can take your sick lil Riley muffins.
    Have a great weekend.
    See you Monday!

  4. So heartwarming to see the old friend cuddled together. A picture of contentment.

    Those two tuxie brothers are adorable! Love those markings, we do.

    Bet the lone kitty holdout comes to his senses before weekends end.

    There is an interesting article about proper naming of bi- colour cats acording to their markings. It's called
    "beautiful bi-colour and magpie cats. Check it out. I think you'll enjoy it.

  5. Hi Deb: Thanks for the tip on hair balls. Maggie is longer haired so gets them occasionally. I just love all your 'kids'. They are so pretty. Happy Saturday..Judy

  6. Heavens those cow-babies are adorable!

  7. The markings on Ripley and Nico are beautiful! Harley and never eat dry kibble any more, just our raw medallions or grain-free canned food. Yummy!

  8. Gorgeous kitties indeed. Look at the beautiful colouring. I have not been able for some reason to get your blog to open up last few days. Today I faired better and in time to see the little darlings. No wonder you love your work.. Hugs GJ xx

  9. Your clients have such beautiful markings =)
    Ed and Lily snuggling always makes me smile.

  10. Loving all the photos of these gorgeous cats. I've been lucky to visit a few new one's here in Texas. A head rub and I'm their's!
    Love to see the oldies snuggling!
