Vet Visit! It's over! Yay!

We thought we would share our vet visit to Star Meadow Animal Clinic here in Connecticut with you all today. After all what are these visits for, if not to share with our friends!

Of course on the way to the vet, me and Paprika sang the song of our people   It was scandalous the way our humans stuffed, yes stuffed us into sometime called "cat carriers." Outrageous, I say. - Peaches the cat

There were some positives at the vet. Of course everyone fell in love with me.  I enjoyed showing off my charms, as always!

I hung out with Brittany for a while, talking with and entertaining her while we waited for the Doc.

After a few exchanges I knew I had a fan! Carol tried to hold me too, but I said to her: "I'm with Brittany now."

PAPRIKA was next at bat. She is a coward, just look! She will have to come out sometime.

The next event was a tummy exam for both of us.

 I, Paprika thought I'd get a tummy rub like at home, but no such look. Check out how cleverly I've curled my tail around the vet's hand.  That's in case she gets too feisty!

I, Peaches, decided to put up with the whole thing, but was not particularly pleased.

At last I got to show off my white tummy & paws during the event! And of course I will later get my, um, revenge!

Finally we were pronounced as reasonably healthy 6.11 year old kitties & allowed to go home and relax.  We plan to sleep for several days.  

Thank you for reading about our visit. We hope your next vet visit is smooth, serene and respectful!

Peaches & Paprika at Marys Kitty Korner

Who could NOT fall in love with this cat?
We'll be joining  Cat on My Head's Blog Hop today to tell a bit of our "story" and how our human met us! We were at Marys Kitty Korner, a no-kill "home-like" shelter  for cats only here in Granby Connecicut.   We are honoring a different shelter each week for National Adopt a Shelter Cat month.!


So here's how it goes:  My human fell in love with me, Peaches, on the internet!  Here is the picture (above) on "Petfinder" with which she was smitten!    Immediately she said to herself:  "I must have that cat!"

That's  me on TOP!
Mary's Kitty Korner - where I and Paprika were living
She then made inquiries about me, got directions and found I was living in a big white house in Granby, Connecticut with 50 other cats!    When my owner first laid eyes on me, I had the best spot in the cat house - a spot on a high window in the sun.  However, I was flirting with another customer! 
Flirting and posing on the window for my admirers

My human was crushed, thinking another customer had scooped me up. She immediately announced, "Hey that's MY cat!" - even though she'd never met me before!

 Mary's Kitty Korner's manager, Miss Lisa, DID tell they other customer that Carol had "first dibs" much to her great relief.

Sad Paprika--thinking she might get left behind!
Well here's the deal, I have this littermate, Paprika and let me tell you we're a Package deal - ain't going nowhere without my sisfur!  That was fine with the human.  She WANTED 2 cats!  So she met  shy Paprika  who was hanging out in another room.

Paprika is transfixed by "the feather"

The human, Carol, was not bothered by Paprika's shyness, (I've cautioned Paprika to look more "upbeat" like ME!) She started to play with Paprika & her eyes actually danced!

There were many neat rooms at Marys Kitty Korner that the human visited - where cats could play and sun themselves. Most were having a grand ole time. 
Another sun and playroom at Marys Kitty Korner

We decided to "state our case." After all, we did not wanted her to get tempted by "other cats!"

For good measure, I tried one more "window maneuver" and Paprika tried to look particularly Beseeching!

Wouldn't YOU like a playful cat with such PURRsonality? about it?  Deal is sealed?
SNIFF! Pawleeeez..

Goodbye Marys Kitty Korner...
thank you for letting us stay here!

The human did not have to think about it long....she opted for BOTH of us....a wise decision!  Check us out below in our "new" home...

First hour in our new homs...confined to
Carol's bathroom for a day - then released to explore the Living room!

We love our home and being able to "prowl around" without bumping into 50 other cats!
We did wonder...
Will we be STAYING here?

Thank you to Marys Kitty Korner for sheltering these delightful fur babies...before I found them!

The Look of Love - Peaches the Cat

Peaches: The Look of Love
This is my human's absolute favorite picture of me. I helped her take it the week she brought me home with my sisfur Paprika.  After I set paw in her nice digs, I showered her with kitty affection (rubs,kisses-the whole arsenal) giving her what she calls my "adoring look."  

She likes to dress up my photos with artwork (this one's from IMIKIMI) to spare me wearing silly cat clothes but I don't's all for the sake of art, right?

Paprika my sisfur will tell her story another time. I paid her plenty - my green catnip mouse and 4 pumpkin treats - to let me have the spotlight first.

We joined Athena & Marie's Caturday Art hop and are now joining Cat On My Head's  Sunday hop. I know I am a greedy cat but I DID take this selfie, honest! For those at Blog Paws, we blow a kiss.

Happy Catnip Tummy Tuesday

I was inspired by Cat on My Head's "Niphead" post to post my old picture inside a Purrpak box in years past.  Here I am zonked out after intense nipping.
- Paprika the Cat

No way, Paprika! I will not let you have all the limelight when I was totally blissed out myself! 

- signed, the one & only Peaches

Proof I was there: you will see that Paprika is totally beside herself, while I was the rational one in this transaction!
- Peaches

Happy Tummy Tuesday to all from two Nip-Heads!

Happy Kitty-Mom Day!

We love hangin' out with our human kitty-mom and even holding hands, er, paws! We hope you do too.  It took me two years to get used to the idea of sharing her with Paprika but now we have our territories: I get the right shoulder and Paprika gets the left. Never the twain should meet. Works for me as long as Paprika doesn't bother me. But I digress. We mainly want to wish all our furrriends a truly happy Mom's Day, whatever you do!
- Love Peaches the Cat

Above you will see our nightly configuration.  Aren't you impressed we took a Selfie? 
He He...Love, Peaches

Well of course we are joining our Cat On MY Head Kitty friends and hope you'll visit all the other animals on this special day.

We want to pay tribute to our friend, Flynn today He was Peaches & Paprika's first "orange virtual boyfriend" & one of the first blogger kitties who wrote us. For this and for the reason he was a superlative boy cat, he will forever live in our hearts.

 Well I was thinking about the above and decided to make a graphic or two in his honor!

I made this one first, because we always see Flynn enjoying the out of doors and especially trees and grass
Then, I wanted to look at some other pictures through the months and years and I picked out some favorites and made a collage.

Needing a break I left the computer for a few minutes and when I returned THIS is what I found:  kitty Paprika sitting on my desk &  fixedly staring at Flynn on the screen.

(photos of Paprika NOT photoshopped! She stayed there 15 minutes...

I could not get Paprika to budge.  finally she turned around and stared at me with flattened ears!  I imagined her to say:

And eventually,

She turned around to face the computer again!

Perking Up Ears!

Finally she turned away from the computer
Peaches, though in another room, was looking dejected as well!

So we part company for now and wish our dear friend Flynn a true reunion with Eric and those of us on earth behind will hope for him the happy romps they could not take together  for a long long time. We send hugs to Jackie & her family. And we will hold her beloved furrball gently in our hearts and watch for cameo "Angel Flynn" appearances.

Love, Carol, Peaches & Paprika


We are joining Cat on My Head's Sunday blog hop and invite you to visit the other animals hopping today!
