02/01/2016 – ManyCat Monday

We did a lot of cleaning over the weekend, pre-spring cleaning, if you will. Nothing was off limits. Cabinets were organized. Donation piles were made. And yet for all the scrubbing, wiping, and vacuuming, we have to face the cold, hard facts.

We let things go too long and it would now appear we’re infested with…

It’s so bad, they’ve taken over the short wall dividing the kitchen and living room too. How could we have not noticed this before? How did we not see this happening right under our own noses?

Thank goodness! Here’s a singular Counter Seal and we’ve discovered that individually, they aren’t too hard to clean up. A scoop, a wipe, and all is good.

But this one might require some serious elbow grease. The dreaded Ledge Seal is the poofiest and toughest one to date. Please, take it from us. Get a jump on that cleaning now and don’t let this happen at your place.

Mom went to the International Cat Show in Portland (Oregon) over the weekend and saw adorable Summer competing against so many gorgeous cats. She knew she was every bit as gorgeous, and even more so and the judges seemed to like her.

Our Mom also met Summer’s half-brother Chill Factor, or Chilly for short. He is an absolutely beautiful unusual blue Somali with peach undertones. We were sad to hear the earlier judges on Saturday didn’t seem to think he was anything special when our Mom assured us he is magnificent. She also said her photo here of him does not do him justice. And if you could see him give his Mom kisses and loving, you’d completely fall under his spell.

Lastly, our Mom took lots of photos of some of the other kitties there and she said she tried extra hard to take pictures of cats other than gingers (though some of us wonder what would be so wrong about that?).
