Did you know Quint’s artwork makes for great holiday gifts? Paintings made by a cat? Yep! They’re fun and thoughtful and especially well-suited for those pet lovers who think they have everything! Please click on Quint’s Art Shop icon over on the far right sidebar –> or visit his art shop directly by clicking here to take a look at his work. All proceeds for all paintings sold through January will go toward helping with senior sister Sunny’s recent vet bill. Happy looking and thank you!

Before the Colehaus Cats you know now, in the ancient, olden days of yore, before there were many cats on the Internets, there were two earlier batches of Colehaus Cats. Sadly, we don’t have much in the way of photos from the very first group, but we do have good records of the second.

Lounging in the original Cat Den before cabinets and cat trees, clockwise from lower left corner, Queen Crits in the round bed giving gray, ex-feral Cameron a bath. Big ginger boy Ian weighed in at forty-three pounds and defied nearly all attempts at dieting (he finally came down to twenty-five with ultra strict vet monitoring). Dilute tortie G.B. naps in the upper corner. Almost white Skitters adopted us when we helped him recover from being nailed shut in an attic by a bad neighbor. And ginger girl Zooot, outgoing sibling to sister G.B loved snuggling anywhere her favorite blanket lay.

All are at the Rainbow Bridge now, undoubtedly sticking together, sharing and remembering good times. You can read more about each one here at our Never Forgotten – OTRB link.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

When baby Pia came to live with us in May 2012, she had pretty much the run of anything she wanted. Baby Tessa, just three weeks older, was with us but she was a wild thing back then and preferred her independence far away from “babies.” Pia was so little and floofy and not sure of what was what. She liked to cuddle up with a bunny toy that Mom had originally purchased to give to a friend who raised goats alongside rabbits, but the bunny never quite made it over to that farm.

Later, the bunny became a favorite of The Niblets who chewed off one of the bunny’s ears, perhaps in a fit of Niblet rage when they were told that yes, they were KITTENS and no, they were not Superhero Hedgehogs in floof suits.

The bunny is now a nighttime bed mate of Sunny. Oh, the stories that bunny could tell!

Baby Pia also liked to hang out with a long-legged cat. She would snuggle within those long, fleecy legs and nap for hours.

Fortunately, that long-legged cat still has her ears intact!

But, as we all know, ginger princesses need their own bed. A big bed, no, a HUGE bed with lots of cushy pillows amongst which to sleep comfortably and to dream of future ginger princes.

We’re taking the day off from our regular posting schedule but leaving baby Viola in charge with her wee trebuchet. What could possibly go wrong?

Have a fun and safe Halloween! See you Wednesday!
