Chili Bruce's lone white whisker in evidence on Saturday... IT'S GONE!!!  Blep...
Sure, we can tell Manny and Chili Bruce apart: Manny has large white spot on his belly; CB's is small.  CB has little bald spots on his back legs caused by his attempts at imitating a meerkat; Manny has all his fur on his legs.  Manny's fur is rough to the touch; CB's fur is silky smooth, and his head is smaller too.  But how can I tell them apart when they both jump on me when I get home? 

I hope that white whisker grows back!

Happy Birthday, The Hubby!****no one noticed that I misspelled 'happy' as 'harpy'!

Yep, it's a really big Birthday for The Hubby, but he didn't want any gifts.  So what was I supposed to do?

New cat nail clippers

Deciding that something cat-related would be good, I bought a new pair of nail clippers.  Now we can leave one pair upstairs for Angel, and the other stays downstairs for Manny and Chili Bruce.

So cute!

And I purchased these cute catnip-filled hearts too; pink for Angel, blue and green for Da Boyz.

Also visited the doc today; he was pleased with my progress, and they gave me a splint that I can remove to flex my hand a little.  Not too much, he said, 'cause he doesn't want the wires to move around too much.  If you aren't squeamish, here's this morning's xray:

My Thankful Thursday's cup runneth over: I am so very lucky to have The Hubby as my friend, my live-in stand-up-comedian, and he's looking terrific on this warmish Spring day.  Also very thankful for Dr. Kirk Cleland at St Clair Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, PC, for putting my hand back together again!

Let's Hop!

Wild Bunch Wednesday

The PO'M's fur is growing back nicely, over his once bald area.  Looks almost like the shape of Australia!  It was a rather large area, and I am so glad that it healed.

He loves getting scritches right there too!

Sweetie, rubbing
Sweetie also appears to have weathered the harsh Michigan Winter in good form.  Sunday afternoons are my favorite time to sit on the deck with them, or to wander the backyard. 

The 'O' Cats are The Wild Bunch, not to be confused with those two wild ruffians Manny and Chili Bruce!

Oh, they look peaceful here...but it's a ruse!

Cat Tile Tuesday

Love the cobalt color!
My friends, I stumbled upon Sligo Creek Tile Co. quite by accident!  First, I saw a gorgeous black cat tile of theirs while visiting The Island Cats last year, and came upon more beautiful tiles at an art show in Detroit.  Finally, I screwed up my courage and sent an email.  I had my tile within days!  A birthday present to myself, and it enjoys a prominent display spot in my home cat art collection.  Please go visit Sligo Creek Tile Co. and find some wonderful tiles for yourselves.
Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion; I did not receive any compensation for posting about Sligo Creek Tile Co.  I discovered and found them on my own, and believe that you all may enjoy their artwork too!
