Our Katie


I don’ t get many photos of my sweet castle roomie Katie. She shies away whenever Mom L gets too close with her camera. But Katie is so pretty and so delicate and little. Still only about seven pounds tops. She has kind’a short legs and the cutest little walk with her tail held high and always curled into a question mark at the top!

Here she is doing one of her fave things. Patrolling our back patio. She watches day and night from her little cat tower to make sure no foreign introoders enter our patio. 

She caught Mom L taking her photo and Katie was not pleased! MOL!!

Another fave place for Katie is this beautiful beddy Mom L asked Miss Andrea from Celestial Kitties to make. Katie so enjoys snuggling in it because it is right in front of the balcony slider in our master bedroom so’s Katie can get nice sun puddles in the late afternoon.

Don’t you wish you had a beddy like this one?? We have one more downstairs in front of our patio slider door and it gets really nice sun puddles too! Mostly TKS or Domino get that one. Where is you fave place to chill out?


Katie joined our Chrissymouse play!!


I’m gonna be sharing our Secret Santa Paws gift opening on my next blog. I just had to share our joy that having new toys to review brought our sweet little Katie outta her hidey-closet!! And she played!!!

Katie hides during the day in Dad P’s office closet. That is where we presented her with her purrsonal stocking and some of the Secret Santa Paws gifts.

You can see Katie’s special gifts from our Secret Santa Paws in front of her. She sit s on this box or on a rug on the other side of the closet She mostly only comes out during the day when no one is in the office and comes out at night to snuggle and play with Dad P before they go to sleepy town. But on Christmas day, Katie decided that new toys were more interesting than hiding!!

She really was interested in the new bird feather wand toy. She played with Dad P and Eowyn who was in her room to open her own prezzies with Katie.

You can see  that little Katie is still feeling dejected and she doesn’t stand tall, but sort’a goes lower on her legs. But this is so much better than the slinking she has been doing!!

She engage with playtime with Ewoyn and the new wand toy and she even poked around the new crinkly tunnel!

We sure hope your Chrissymouse Day was filled with lots of fun and yummy noms!!


PeeEss—your POTP, purrs and purrayers have helped Katie! Her claw sheaths are not showing any redness nor swelling nor discharge!!! One more week to make sure the new non-clumping litter is not irritating her claw sheaths and then Katie will rejoin the household and all our litter will be silica non-clumping!!!

Friday Memes From Our Cat Colony


First I gotta let you all know that Mom L and I are so very sorry we could not post on Monday. Sunday was the year’s second SNIP Clinic and Mom L and Dad P both worked the clinic in the morning. Then Mom L took Katie to Petco adoptions ‘cuz Dad P had his turn the day before. Mom L could not lift her thumbs to type for me.

And today, she is not over her six hour visit to Emergency hospital on Tuesday night when she suffered a severe unexpected vertigo attack. Never ever never happened before and caught her and Dad P off guard. We kitties spent Wednesday and Thursday in bed with her…yes…I mean “all” three of us.

Mom L is the bump in the middle

The next day the tent came down and you can’t see TKS, but she is right up by Mom L’s head. I allowed Kit Katie to get on the bed closest to Mom L as this was her first time serving Nurse duty.

Ok KK, you take good care of Mom L

We hope to be back again with full health next week. But for now, here are a couple of memes I created for your Friday Smiles. The first kitty is from the SNIP clinic Mom L worked with Dad P this past Sunday.

Calico girl going in for spay at SNIP clinic…not happy!

Miss Cali gal was whacking the trap when anyone came near her! She was very feisty but now she will never have to take care of kittens again. SNIP spayed, neutered ninety-three community cats in six hours. Everyone including veterinarians, registered vet techs, etc. are volunteers.

This next kitty is a newbie to the park colony Mom L and Dad P help manage near us. Mom L is going to trap her to learn if she is friendly enough for adoption. She has the cutest short tail, so part Manx. She is ear tipped, but her white markings on her hind legs make her look like a bunny in motion when she walks and runs! Very cute!

I will be reporting to my readers all about the new program Project Delta View Cats that Mom L and Dad P co-founded for our city. We have a pilot project in place where we are testing all our protocols, recruiting volunteers and working on fund raising. The pilot project is in the area where we live, including the River View Park colony cats, and others along our Pittsburg, CA marina area.

Katie still searches for her forever home so please keep her in your thoughts and send some POTP her way.
