Flannel Sheets!!!

L.A. is going to be getting rain for many days so what better way to
spend our days than snuggled in flannel sheets. "You should feel it
in here".

It is with a heavy heart

That today I said goodbye to my childhood friend, Tippy.  Here is an excerpt I wrote to my family and friends.

Tippy, November 1990-December 13, 2010

It is with a very heavy heart that we said goodbye today to Tippy, 1990-2010. We had him since he was an 8 week old kitten. He was the most loyal friend, comforter, and pal a girl could have. No one purred better than he did.  He enjoyed lounging in the sun and in his younger days was a very good hunter.  He LOVED being on your lap and you could guarantee if you sat down at night to watch T.V., Tippy joined you on your lap.
He passed away peacefully at home on the couch about 10 minutes ago.  My mom spent the entire morning with him, and I was fortunate enough to have spent the last few days with him as well.  He wasn’t breathing heavy and didn’t appear to be in any pain.  Really, this is the best we could have hoped for him as my mom and sister were going to be taking him to the vet’s very shortly.  He will be cremated and we will get his remains, along with a paw print memory. 
Writing this is helping with my grief, so thank you for allowing me to share with you the good memories of our boy.  Little did we know a trip to the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter 20 years ago, when I was 9 years old and Sara was 6 years old, would give us a sweet kitty boy to love and enjoy during our childhoods and into our adult lives.  We love you forever Tippy.

I was feeling nostalgic this afternoon so I decided to post this picture of Marley from back in December 2007 when he was approximately 6 months old.

Remember the movie Forest Gump?  Remember when Forest and his son were watching TV and Jenny noticed they sit just like one another?  Well, take a look at Reggie & Marley and tell me what you see.

Marley Bird Watching (video)

Marley makes some funny "chirping" sounds when he sees a bird.  I think you'll enjoy this as much as I did.

I wish you could hear how loud he is purring. Happy Friday!!!

Reggie's pre bath time

After hearing the bath water this is Reggie's attempt to hide. He
cowers down wherever he is and thinks we can't see him. Then when I
pick him up he stays in a ball and is dead weight.

Too funny.

Bath time was a success tonight though and takes less than five
minutes. He gets one every six weeks or so as he has peach fuzz skin
as opposed to Marley who gets one more frequently because he is very

Cold morning...

After being a record 113 in Los Angeles last Monday, today is chilly
and rainy. A perfect morning to cuddle...

New Sphynx Kitty...sort of...

See if you can spot him trying to blend in.

Marley - the kneading machine...

There are times when Marley gives a distinctive "meow" and I know what it means.  It means I have to lay down on the bed (sounds romantic, huh?) and allow him to knead on my arm as seen in the video.

Did you miss us?

Our mom is very busy because our Aunt's wedding is only three weeks
away. But she still has time to take cute sleeping pictures of us.

Nothing is sacred...

Not even the kitchen table. Well in fairness it also doubles as a
dumping ground for mail and purses ... and sphynx!!!

Belly rub!

Marley loves getting belly rubs!  Usually he likes them for much longer, but you get the idea...check out his toes too in this short video!    

Marley would also like to thank all his friends out there for the warm purrthday wishes on Friday!

Saturday, July 17, 2010


Today is the day our Marley was born, along with one sister (who found a great home too), 4 hours away from where we live.  We were lucky enough to find a great breeder and voila! - Marley was ours!

He is as active a 3 year old should be!  He loves his "treatsies" and LOOOOVES having his face scratched and will meow at you until you do so! 

We love you Marley and here's to many, many, more Purrthdays!

Too hot!

It's even too hot for us kitties today!! So we'll just lay here on
the kitchen table and conserve energy!!

Happy Purrthday to Reggie!!!

Reggie aka "Pookie" is 2 years old!  Seems like just yesterday I flew up to meet the breeder to get what would be a rambunctious, love-y kitty!  Reggie must have known today was his special day because he woke me up with some cold, wet nose butts and wouldn't stop!  Happy Birthday to the sweetest, hairy-eared sphynx there is!

Wake up and smell the roses kitties!!!

You may be confused as to why there is a hairy cat on a sphynx blog!  Well, that's because this is Marley and Reggie's "cousin", Katee!  She lives with our mom's parents (aka our grandparent kitty slaves).  She is almost 5 years old and is the sweetest girl there is, often kneeding in the air and grabbing an empty lap as soon as she spots one!

How are you other kitties spending your Sunday??

We are perfectly content burrowed in an unmade bed!

Update on Reggie's teeth cleaning visit...

My vet is so thoughtful (and also knows how worried I can get) and sent me the following updates.  She also sent me this picture.  I think he was just coming out of sedation here.  (I brought his blanket for him).


Hi Lisa, Reggie is ready to go under anesthesia. He required special handling, but no extra charge for it as you're such a great kitty momma. He really was as good as he personally could be. I adore his tufts of fur on his ears. We'll let you know when he's in recovery. He's third in the lineup. His CBC and internal organ function screen were within normal limits.  


He is in recovery and is extremely lovable right now, lots of nose-to-nose contact. He can go home after 4. Did great!

Reggie goes to the dentist...

Marley here.  Tomorrow Reggie goes in for his comprehensive exam and his very first teeth cleaning!  Mom is a little nervous because they have to put him under anesthesia, but she is very confident in her vet and knows that he is in very, very good hands.  But actually Mom is more stressed out about the whole "no food after midnight" deal because us Sphynx looooove to eat.  At least once she leaves the house at 8:00am I can get some food!  Mom has also mentioned to Dad that I should go in for a cleaning soon too...Hmmm...I don't know about that one!  Also, Reggie will be 2 years old in 2 weeks time!  My little brother is growing up so fast.  My 3rd birthday isn't until July.

Staying warm anyway I can....

Even if that means on top of mom and dad's dinner!!!

Heat hogs

Staying warm on the range while lunch is in the oven. Silly boys!

We like playing games...

Teri tagged us in a game and we decided we'd love to play!  So, going to our first photo folder, and to the 10th picture, this is what came up!!!

I think this photo is pretty self explanatory, but I'll still talk about it.  My boys love to cuddle.  PERIOD.  Sometimes I don't know how they can be comfortable, but they are, and they'll sleep for HOURS in these contortionist positions.  Sphynx cats are such a joy...then again, all cats are, hair or not! 

No more photos from the paparazzi!! Geez !!
