Taking a little dip...

So, this is not the first instance of this... "dip". And I'm sure many of your kitties have taken the dip as well.

Well, Sunday night was Rosalie's turn to take the dip. We're so proud of her. I just wish we had a camera readily available. At her age, Ms. Phyllis took the dip. Now, Rosalie, and I suppose soon it will be Renatta's turn. I certainly hope Renatta doesn't have a development problem. I mean... eventually she has to take the dip right? If not, does that mean she's "special"?

OH! So, "What 'dip' am I refering to?" Well, the big plunge in the toilet of course!

Matt woke up at about 3AM to go to the bathroom, walked into the bathroom, lifted the lid, and Rosalie snuck up, put her paws up on the bowl and stared down at the cool water. Matt looked down and said, "No, Rosalie, don't get up there." Well, she jumped up on the edge, teetered a bit and PLUNK! Rear feet first she takes the plunge!

Phyllis did it at about 4 or 5 months old and now Rosalie has also taken the "rear end plunge".

I'm not surprised that Renatta hasn't yet taken the plunge yet. She's quite cautious. Very thoughtful, slow to act on.

Well, because of "the plunge" we have a new nickname for Rosalie (yes, ANOTHER). Her new nickname is: Tea Bag. :)

On Safari!!

At one point I may have shared a video with you with Phyllis watching and interacting with her "kitty porn". Well, I figured it was time to introduce the kittens to the "birds and the bees"!! (HAHA! That's funny!)


Got our new credit card today!!

Woo hoo!

It came out very nice, but the photo placement was a bit off, poor Rosalie has one eye covered. :(

Rich and Phyllis Welcome the Morning...

This is Rich's morning ritual. The alarm is set for 5:45, Phyllis shows up around 5:15. And the perrsistent lovin starts!

"Come on daddy!! Time to make the coffee!!! Get up! Get up! Get up!!"

Take a listen to Ms. "Gobble Guts, GiGi, Rosalie Pettibone" and her lovely PURRRRR! She's so perfect!! Unfortunately, while I was recording, for some reason, she didn't use her little squeak that usually goes with her purr.

Just another morning...

So, just like every morning, Matt has his coffee while checking his email and reading all the latest online news and/or gossip.

Apparently Rosalie has taken a liking to the online news.

Renatta continues her search for ANY small object floating around on the desk that might be fun to knock off and play with on the floor (and yes, smarty pants, there are lots of obvious objects for victims).

And then there's poor Phyllis, who just wants to be loved on (and catching a mouse on the screen is a secondary need!).

I can't believe she still fits...

Ms. Rosalie seems to still be able to squeeze under the couch somehow! There must be a lost kitty snack hiding under there!!

Standing Tall...VERY Tall!!

I'm not scared of them growing up... at least I don't have to give them away like the IBKC! I just want them to stay small a BIT longer... like a month ago! Although they look pretty big, beside Phyllis they are actually still quite small. Then again, Phyllis does have the unfair long hair size advantage.

This is how we blog...

Blogging is a team sport! I'm sure Laurie, Sue, and Kim would agree! We all have our special teammates! The Dingo is mine!

(Does this kitty make my belly look fat? No, that's likely just how my belly looks!!)

Ms. Rosalie has an eye for PURRRRfection. That's what makes her such a good teammate. Plus the minor fact that she is SO vocal!


Drum roll please!!

Here's your winner! Or should I say OUR WINNER!?!?

I'm SO happy that you all helped us make the decision and though the "A" folks certainly chimed in a lot, I do believe the "C"s have it.

(After playing with the Capital One layout tool I also discovered that "C" was also going to work best because with "A" one of the kitties would have been covered by credit card numbers. So, yet another good reason for "C"!)

Photo Competition...

Ok, so, as some of you know Matt and I have Phyllis on one of our Capital One Credit Cards. A lovely photo it might be, however that card was created during the pre-alien phase of our lives. It's now time to expand the card offering and have one made with all three.

So, recently Matt's task was to collect the kitties (in any means possible) into one photo frame. Here are some in our collection. Please vote and help us choose!

Thanks for your help!
