TT #30: Freyja & Bastet

Thirteen-plus pussycat pictures
On request: pictures from the kitties! I've got so many, it was hard to choose. Last week Blogger gave me a very hard time uploading my portraits, so this week I'll use links to Photobucket. Click on them and they'll open in a new window.

  • In August I met Freyja and Bastet in the pet shelter and fell in love instantly. Who wouldn't..?
  • Both growing up without their mother they decided to adopt me as a surrogate mother. My lap and front are popular places to sleep.
  • Foofur is a willing victim for Freyja and for Bastet, but they don't mind to share him too: friends for ever (well, most of the time)!
  • When they are tired of playing everything is suitable to take a nap: the central heating, the humidifier or each other.
  • Boris' feeding tray is one of their favourite things to play in/with/around.
  • At first they weren't allowed to sit on the microwave or the coffee table, but we gave in later. Who's the boss here..?
  • When there's food on the table they have to stay on the floor, but when the humans aren't watching cream from a spray can is yummy!
  • In the beginning Freyja literally fit on one hand, now she's more than a hands full! ;-)
  • Freyja loves watching television: from the side, the top or in front of the screen!
  • When it snowed a few weeks ago they were fascinated by those white little things falling from the sky and tried to grab some.
  • They claimed the rocking chair, preferably with a blanket and/or cushions.
  • Bastet finds it very interesting when I use the laptop. She loves chasing the cursor.
  • Before using the washing machine or the dryer I need to check it, because they love to jump inside!

A little extra, to see them in motion:

  1. I enjoyed the pics of your fur babies. I have 7 cats and one lonely Siberian Husky. They were all rescue animals. I just love animals so much. I wish I could save them all.

  3. That last one is a very important one. No kitties in the washer or dryer! Thanks for sharing the pictures. They are adorable. I'm glad you saved them. If my son ever outgrows his allergies, we will be paying a visit to Rescue Village also.

  4. I am getting my son a cat for his birthday. He is so excited. He wanted a dog too, but cats will be easier on me right now.

  5. Remember that one time when, I think it was Snoopy, got locked up in the washing machine and had "kind of a bath"?

  6. What purr-ecious kitties you have -- they're beautiful. I enjoyed all the pictures, and I watched the video, too. Hubby and I have four kitties, and three of them love to play with water dripping out of the sink. :)

    Happy TT, fellow cat purr-son! :)

  7. Those kitties are too adorable. Sometimes I don't think it's fair how kittens can sucker you in with their big kitten eyes, and pitiful 'would you take me home?' looks. I suppose that's why I have six cats!

  8. That's the best TT I have seen so far ! The pictures are sooo sweet ! You should have participated at "Cats on Tuesday" with that ! BTW do you know it ? About two months ago I had the idea to get a group of people together who love cats but don't have a special cat blog and it worked very well. Now we are a funny group of people who once a week are writing about their cats and the stories which come out are really very funny ! So everybody is happy and the people are all so nice. You can see it on my cat blog (I had to separate it from my main blog) http://gattinamycats.blogspot.com/

  11. Terrific photos. :) You were both adorable kittens and you are beautiful cats now! I like chasing the cursor on the computer too! It's fun!

    Being a Sphynx isn't all bad - there are many positives, but I just wanted to highlight the disadvantages this week. Thanks for visiting!

  17. Loved the pics. Socks the cat seemed to enjoy them too. He was sitting in my lap while I read your TT.

    Thanks for visiting my TT.

  18. They are all absolutely adorable! I especially love the one when all three of them are all curled up. My dog was raised with cats so she loves them and sometimes acts like one, but my cat hates dogs (probably something from her past life) and she does not like being around them. So to me that picture is the most precious. *sigh* I wish my babies loved each other that much!

    Happy TT!

  35. Oh my gosh, your fur babies are gorgeous! I adore cats, but I break out in hives if I pet them, so I'm afraid we are solely canine people now. Thanks for visiting my blog, and drop in again any time! Have a wonderful weekend, and give Freyja and Bastet hugs for me!
