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 !

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 !!!!
