Once-upon-a-time the boys loved their gourmet wet cat foods; Evo, Nutro, Wellness - if it was expensive and from a specialty cat store, they wanted it. Then they slowly lost interest in these foods preferring only dry foods (Royal Canin and Natural Balance). When they lost quite a bit of weight over the winter, we decided to try wet/canned food from the supermarket, and the Fancy Feast Frenzy began. It doesn't matter what the flavor is, if its Fancy Feast, it disappears. They still only share one little can between them each day (eating mostly dry food), but both will sit like real gentlemen waiting for their dishes. We recently discovered that Fancy Feast comes in cases ...
Someone needs to open this. NOW !!
The boys help us unpack the case.
You can tell from their faces that this is serious business.
I'm ready for my close-up now. (Is that a little billy-goat beard??)
Every once in a while we have to pay homage to gorgeous Uschi (just ask him!). He is the cat of a thousand faces and is willing to pose for the camera anytime, anywhere. Even as a little kitten he seemed to love the camera.
Uschi stares into the setting sun, ears back in the high winds.
Sure she's pretty, but we'd rather not have her as a house guest.
The other morning I was out biking and Les woke to hear a knocking on the cat door. Tanj was out in the kennel butting his head repeatedly against the door for some reason. After making sure the cat flap was unlocked, Les opened the people door to find Tanj standing on the doorstep with a garter snake in his mouth. He was trying to figure out how to get the snake through the cat door and into the house. A little gift for the parents. Thanks Tanji,...
As I was walking into the house, Les and the snake were coming out. The snake was cold and not moving, but appeared to be O.K. Les released the snake in a patch of lupines. After it warmed up, it slithered away. Well, at least Tanji is not hurting his "prey" as much as he used to, but we are expecting more exciting surprises in the future.
Tanj prances proudly by as Les collects her "gift"
Uschi wants to see what all of the excitement is about.
We check the snake, and there are only small Tanj tooth marks.
Congratulations Nate & Kara who are getting married this morning on the shores of Coeur d'Alene Lake, ID, after both completed the Ironman Coeur d’Alene yesterday!
Regular visitors to this blog probably know we get a lot of cakes, for any possible holiday, and sometimes just to get a cake. The boys haven't shown much interest in the parade of cakes (yet!). Yesterday we had birthday cake...
Wow, a little Raspberry cake, let's see what the boys think.
Uschi takes a sniff, licks his chops, and then takes off.
Now its Tanji's turn, he is a little cautious (not a big fan of fruit) but still...
