Will I ever learn ???

In acknowledgement of Winston's addiction confession, I here by post my addiction as well...

I.... Zateynik *(BJ) also have a problem with paper products, such as paper towels, toilet paper, bubble envelopes and maxipads!! * = AKA:



I offer the following photos as proof.


The very first Victim... Purple Maxipad.... RIP





Next Victim, Bubble Envelope ......... RIP


I ordered Kitty Treats by Mail. Can you guess which of the two envelopes had the treats in it? Hummmmmm ?







Third Paper Product Victim ( Ooops, I meant Victims )


3 Rolls of TP........ RIP !


I wonder who did this?



Next Victim. Paper Towel Roll....... RIP.



And then there is more of these ... RIP.


Yesterday morning, I found this on my bedroom floor. Will I ever learn to lock these in a cabinet?

Zateynik - (BJ) gets to play in the snow.


While we were in North Dakota, BJ was whining to go outside. So, I took him out and plopped him into a snow bank, thinking he would hate it...


To my surprise, he loved it, promptly got out of the snow bank, then ran down the sidewalk !

He turned by the garage, when I caught up to him he was rolling around on the snowy cement. When I reached down to grab him, he ran away from me again ! Boy did he get in trouble then, he wanted to run across the parking lot.


I guess the joke was on me ! I let him out in the hopes I would discourage him by the snow and cold, but it did not work at ALL!


D' Oh !!




...

Home - There's no place like it


Finally, we are home ! Here are some photos I took in the car on the road. Milakoshka seems very stressed out by the whole ordeal. She slept on my lap the entire trip, 4 1/2 hours each way. Such a good girl !!

T-Shirt I saw in the Gift shop !!

This is a shirt in the gift shop at the hospital in Fargo, ND. I almost fell over laughing when I saw this ! I actually did live in Fargo -- I was born there.

Christmas in North Dakota .....

This is how we spent our Christmas... Driving on the cold, desolate roads of North Dakota. We are visiting a family member who has been in the hospital since Dec 11th. He is missing all our gorgeous weather !!!
We hope he will get out soon. He is doing much better today, so that would be our Best Christmas present ever !

The kitties, all 3 of them, drove 4 1/2 hours with us in the car & no problems to report... All went well. They are happy mom and dad brought them with, instead of leaving then at home to fend for themselves for many days. :(

About back to normal ...


Tonight Milakoshka welcomed Mishka back home by giving her a big ..... strangle hold ! Ha, bet you thought I was gonna say HUG ?

Well, in reality they were just laying there together on the floor. I think Mila was trying to get Mishka to play with her. At least the kitties are back to normal. Everyone was running around today playing like Mishka and I where never even gone ! ( what's up with that ? )

I am glad to be home, and wish my step-father a speedy recovery from his surgery on Thursday !


...

I've been DISSED !

My baby Milakoshka and my boy BJ have Dissed me ! I was away for a family emergency for 5 days, and I am being completely ignored by these two :(
Mishka was lucky enough to come with mommy because she is on a special diet that requires my attention. So BJ and Mila were left at home in my awesome husbands care. But he works during the day, and they have never been alone that much before. Now that I am back, they could care less. :(
My first night home, I had no kitties laying on me in the bed either. I usually have at least two. I hope with lots of love and treats, I will soon be in their good graces again.

Mishka finally gets a POST.

Seems like Mila and Zateynik have been getting all the posts lately.

.

Mishka is sleeping because she has a long drive with me tomorrow. We are driving about 4 1/2 hours to be with a family member who is having surgery. Mishka keeps me company in the car. I hope the roads are not too snowy. This might be the last post for a few days.

Awake ( and not dead !! )

Just a quick note to my BLOG readers.... Mila is alive and well. My Husband looked at the previous photos and said she looks dead ( like her neck is broken .) I want all you to know she is very much alive, pouncing and chasing the other cats around as usual. She just likes sleeping in strange places and I happened to catch her with her mouth open. LOL !!

Who Says Cats HATE to Ride in Cars ? : Part 2

Mishka had a vet appointment this afternoon. So we went to the Dr. and afterwards went for a little drive. That way she does not think all car rides lead to the vet. She looks kind of mad, but she is not... It was a gloomy, cloudy day so her eyes are open a little wider than they would be on a sunny day.

She loves riding in the van, especially when she is sleeping & purring on my right shoulder !!






PS: My vet says I have to loose a pound in 30 days. :(

I was looking thru some old photos of Mishka, and saw these photos that are eerily similar to each other. They are so alike, it's kinda scary !!!

Photo of Mishka and Zateynik - aka: BJ

I was sitting out on the couch today, in our 3 season porch. Looking at our backyard, which has recently become quite nice. We planted 3 maple trees this year, a wind storm in Sept of 2005 blew all our trees down. So our yard has been kind of bare for a number of years.




And... this year my husband and I FINALLY put up a new fence. The one that was there when we moved in, had to have been at least 30 years old, and was practically falling over. I painted the new one green, so when all the leaves fall off the lilac bushes in front of it, it will still look like they are there. The winter here is quite cold, and green makes me think of spring...


Anyway, I was out on the porch, when Mishka comes out to lay next to me. A few minutes later BJ came out there as well. He jumped up on the couch, walked right over to Mishka, started licking her head, then laid down right beside her.


It was so sweet, I went in the house to get my camera. Here is the photo I took. They are so cute. We are going to try one more time to breed them. I hope the 3rd time's the charm !

Butters went home tonight :(

Beautiful Blue "Buttercup" with the Fluffy Tail.
Her parents came to pick her up tonight and bring her back home.
She has a Sister named Tigerlily, who was anxiously waiting for her.
We were sad to see her leave, but hope she has gone home pregnant. She and BJ mated a few times while she was at our house.
We wish Butters much luck in these next few weeks of WAITING !!!.....

Who Says Cats HATE to Ride in Cars ??

Mila on the dashboard (anti-skid mat )





Every cat I have ever had, has never had a problem riding in cars. Smokey, my 20 year old Siamese mix girl, ( who passed away in Jan 08 ) didn't mind riding in the car. Smokey usually slept in my lap or on the back seat. We also travel 4 1/2 hours to visit family (2 to 6 times per year), she made the trip with us every time. I got all my cats used to riding in the car while they were young, so that might have something to do with why they handle it so well . Click on the link below to see photos of Smokey, she was truly beautiful, and we miss her everyday !


http://www.mysiberiankitties.com/photos8.html



Now, I have 2 Siberians, & Mishka absolutely loves riding in the car. The only thing that makes it difficult to travel with Mishka is.... that from a very young age she climbed on my right shoulder and went to sleep while in the car. It was really cute when she weighed 3 pounds. She now weighs over 14 pounds and still wants to ride on my shoulder. Kinda hard to drive holding a 14 pound cat !!



I took Mila on a car ride today. She loves to ride in the car as well. She likes all the movement happening out the windows , cars driving by, leaves falling, pretty much everything ...



Here are some photos I took of Milakoshka in the car today.

New Female Visiting !!

I have 2 Siberian cats of my own, and I am also a foster mom for a male Siberian from Iowa. He has been at our house since May 15th, 2008. We intended to breed with Mishka, but she never got pregnant.





Above is a photo of my Foster Son BJ - which is his nickname. His real name is Zateynik Sladkoe Pyatnyshko and is owned by Sue at Jyntico Siberians.


We now have another house guest, her name is Buttercup. Buttercup is owned by Dede, of Deedlebugs Cattery. She is hoping that BJ will like her, and breed with Buttercup.
BJ is quite the Casanova ! Buttercup has the most gorgeous tail I have ever seen. She is a blue/torbie Siberian cat with the greatest personality. The second you pet her she starts purring.



So for now we have 4 cats, and only 2 of them are mine !!! All the cats were near the open windows today. It was 75 degrees here today, so they were all by the window looking at the birds and the leaves falling.


Don't Forget TO VOTE !!!!
