When we were fortunate enough to be sharing our home with our part Maine Coon, Mr. Tiggs, we bought all sorts of toys for him. He was pretty good playing with them for a few minutes, but then they would disappear. Some we found; others we did not!

When we moved in 2007, shortly after our beloved Mr. Tiggs died, it was amusing to see all the 'lost' toys when various items of furniture were removed! Also lots of dust bunnies!

Well find it again! It's your job!

Every night I have to look for Bunny, Horsie, and Hedgie or Lily sits beside the bed and brks at me, demandingly. This is because they are on the opposite side of the bed on the floor...which she IS allowed to go there, but nope, prefers her slave to do it.

You made me laugh, Liz. : )
I've lost count the number of times I have looked for and sometimes found their toys. Instead of getting down on my achy knees, I keep a long-handled duster to reach under the sofas to retrieve them. Using the duster, I not only get their toys but get those darn fur bunnies hiding under there too.

If it wouldn't be too much trouble, I would love to see everyones cats/dogs or any other critters.

Please post pictures so we all can go "awww, what a sweetie pie".

Thank you : )

Lily with a severe case of red eye, and Hamish who chose to turn his head at the last minute.

Pictures!!! Yay :)

Heidi, I love your furbabies!

Molly is so cute~ I love her sweet face and that hair.....kinda reminds me of me when I look in the mirror first thing in the morning. lol..

I also love steel blue cats like Mr Charles. He reminds me of a few cats at the shelter I volunteer at. I have always found those steel blue coloured cats are quite friendly and total love bugs.

And I also l..o..v..e Mr Luc. Omg, he looks so much like my Oliver. They could be twins. They have the same markings.
Have a look-see:

If you looked up Maine Coons on the internet, there are pictures of Maine Coons that look exactly like Mr Luc and Oliver.
I just love Oliver so much for his clown-like ways.
He is very beautiful and sweet, but oh so very silly. He has the ability to put a smile on my face whenever I see him.
A little story:
Last week, Oliver was sleeping on the gas fireplace. The pilot light was on so the top of the fireplace was quite warm. While we were watching tv, I looked over and saw Oliver sound asleep, lying spread out on the stove. Both my husband and I saw Oliver stretch and then roll over when the funniest thing happened.
When Oliver rolled over, there was not much room so... he promptly fell off the fireplace. :shock:
And landed with a thump.... He was so zonked out from the warmth, he forgot where he was. Silly cat.
I thought cats landed on their feet. Not Oliver. :roll: :lol:

He looked at us really puzzled so I went over and picked him up. He deserved a few scritches behind the ears. Poor baby.....but it was funny.

: )

Liz, your Lily is so darn cute! I love her blonde highlights. : )

And look.....there is the famous Hamish. What a guy : )

Liz, I have followed Hamishes adventures since he was a kitten. I love it when you write about him.

Those 2 must be a hand-full when they are playing together.

Love ALL the furbabies, every single one! Molly would fit in well here, I think.

Does Momma Cat really have a flower on her tummy?

Glad to see Bolt being such a good good boy!

Hamish IS a very good boy, and he is two armsful. Lily makes a good hot water bottle...self-heating...

(I fell asleep for two hours, was wakened during it to see mighty snowstorm, and snow was gone when I woke up to feed the birds. Waaaah!)
