Lucky Cats

We wanna say big Thank You to Maggie
from Sundays at the Shelter for sending us
this super cute Lucky Cat stickers!

Lucky Cats (Maneki Neko) are believed
to bring good luck with their beckoning paws.

Look at these adorable beckoning cats.
We already feel very lucky!

Meanwhile in the kitchen...

Goro's curious paw was checking out
a ball of meat :-)

I baked chicken scotch egg for
Goro & Niko.

Looks like they both liked it :-)

Goro & happy tummy

Niko & happy face

Beckoning (?) paw

I played around and made an image
with Maggie's Lucky Cat.

Thank you, Maggie.
We love your Lucky Cats!

Cat Shelf 5

I saw this wall-mounted cat tree
online and fell in love with it.

I want it. It's big, though.
Where do we mount it?

I hesitated.

But then, I heard a voice in my head.

And so began our latest installation of wall shelves.

Cat Shelf Project #5

We moved furniture to make room for the tree.
(Cat stuff is seriously taking over this house.)

You like the tree cave, Goro?

Here comes Niko.

Checking out.

Niko seems to like it, too :-)

Then we added shelves to connect
from the new wall tree... the existing tree by the window.

But there was one issue.

Goro. What's wrong?

So we added a little step.

Here you go, Goro.

And here comes Niko.

Use the step, Niko. Don't be scared.


Niko, you totally bypassed the step!

Niko is usually reserved. I love how
high perches bring out confidence in him :-)

More shelf & step



We want to add more shelves,
but that's gonna be in a future project.

...which will start when I hear a voice
in my head again :-)

Let's make a Catloaf!

Step 1: Gather ingredient

Step 2: Knead

Step 3: Fur-mentation

Let it rise...

Step 4: Shape the dough into cat

Oops, I'd better untwist him.

Step 5: Bake in the sun

And here it is - Purrfect Goro Catloaf!

Step 6: Serve!

Yep, YOU serve the needs of Catloaf.
That's what the recipe says :-)


Already 1/3 of January has passed,
but this is our 1st post in 2016. So...

Happy New Year!

We wish you all a happy & healthy 2016!!

Christmas Scenes

Hello, everyone! I hope you all
had a fun Christmas!

Look what I got for Christmas present...

It's Goro :-)

Woo-hoo. Let's decorate him.

Other Christmas decorations.

Here is no-cord-to-chew,
Goro-proofed Christmas tower.

Christmas ornaments.

The sweet woofie is Angel Watson from
Two Little Square Black Dogs. His mom made the
ornament. Such lovely way to remember him.

Hey, I got another present in a bag!

Niko & Christmas ribbon

Goro & Christmas ribbon

Sorry, Goro. May I offer you
tuna sashimi for Christmas snack?

To our bloggie friends:

Thank you always for your friendship!
We wish you all a wonderful 2016!

Prickly Paw

Last month, we received a package from

Inside were local delights from Arizona
(bread mix & jelly) and a pretty ornament!

Goro & Niko were all over, too.

Goro, wait!

Adorable square dog card! Our hearts broke
when sweet dog Watson crossed Rainbow Bridge
in September - but he is always in our hearts.

I baked pecan bread.
Put prickly pear cactus jelly on top.

Prickly pear is fruity & very sweet.
I love this dessert from desert!

No, no, Goro. It's all mommy's.

Sorry, Goro. Here, let me give you
 a nice belly rub...

Goro's prickly paw is furry & bittersweet♥

We enjoyed the gift very much.
Kisses to Gayle, thehamish & angel Watson!
