Saturday and Sunday with Sheebie

Friends and Kitties!

Sheebie here.
Saturday is my Birthday (52!) so I'm going to be lazy and do just one post for the weekend and call it good.
But I have some fun photos from the visit to see my folks and Shadow which I hope will tide you all over until Monday!

Dad and Mom out in the back yard, talking to Shadow, who is exploring.


An unwilling family portrait!

The unwillingness continues:  Me, molesting Shadow.  She is Mightily Displeased.

these damn people...

Last but not least, home-made chocolate Birthday Cake for my Dad!

Have a Happy Weekend!

Dehydrated CHIKKUN! A Recipe.


Gorging Grizz here.
Many of you requested instructions for your servants learn how to make delectable dehydrated chikkun jerky.

Here's how:

First we get Mommy, particularly when she's already hot and sweaty and still in her yoga clothes, to fire up the big (Scouty) stew pot filled with water and a tablespoon of salt.  While she waits for the water to boil she trims off the gross fatty bits (which make the water foam like crazy) from the boneless skinless chix titz--and shoos cats off the counter.

Then she boils them up, about six at a time, 10 minutes per batch. And shoos cats off the counter.

At this point Mommy gets tired of shooing so she minces up some steaming Sacrificial Chikkun for us, burning her fingers.  Which we reject, in favor of this: 
Licking the chikkun slices!

For which we are, once again, shooed, apparently for disturbing the avian artistic array. 

After the titz cool on a rack for a half hour or so Mommy thinly slices them and puts them the dehydrator rack, and after 6-7 hours at 135℉ we have Incomparable Nomminess!

At this point we swat do the Self-Shooing Shuffle to optimize distribution...

So, to summarize:

trim and boil boneless skinless chicken breasts in salted water for about 10 minutes (shoo)
cool--counter (shoo) or refrigerator (delayed shooing)
slice about 3/16" (3-4 mm) thick (activate extreme shooing skillz)
dehydrate until almost crisp

Bon Appetit!

Happy Thursday!

Unexpected Company


Rupert here.
You might think I'm all alone here in the laundry room...

...but I'm not!
And in case you're wondering, Bibs jumped straight up to the top shelf from the washing machine--scared the bejeebers outta me when she rocketed by.

Happy Wednesday!

Ticked Off Tortie


May ling here...
...and boy-o-boy am I mad!

Everything looks normal here, right?

Well...check out behind my left ear--do you see that tiny bit of white?

It's a FEATHER in my head fur!

Mommy was snuggling with me on the sofa when she felt something poking her in the back, it was an escapee from her old, el cheapo feather pillow.  First she let me sniff it (interesting!) and then it all went downhill, as you can plainly see.

Hell hath no fury like a Tortie scorned...

Later, I ate the feather.  Mommy had better be afraid...she might be next!

Happy Tuesday!

Moody Mancat Monday


The Three Mancateers here...Johnny, CC, and Scouty.
We were congregating on the bed one evening, having a Top Secret Mancat Meeting when Mommy rudely barged in on us.  Naturally, we shot our lasers beams to scare her away!

Undeterred, she managed another shot but it was so badly lit that we had to turn it into a black-n-white photo--but you know what--we really like it!  We think it lends a certain mysterious quality to our fursons...

What do you think?

Happy Monday!

Shadow's Selfie!


Shadow here.

As you probably know, The Screechy Lady--hereafter referred to as "TSL"--visited *me* (and her parents) last week, and she helped me do a selfie!

And then I did one solo which turned out much better, don't you agree?

I don't know how my cousins at The Lounge tolerate TSL and her invasive ways!

Although I admit that she is rather nice to snuggle with at night...

We're pawticipating in the Sunday Selfie!

Happy Sunday, Everybody!
