Tummy Thursday


Adopt cats, we deserve it!!!Adopt cats, we deserve it!!!

My Dad’s Blog Post at the Mauldin Patch is here.

Today for Tummy Thursday, Sister Gracie shows you that she not only knows how to do that tummy thing, but she also can throw in a little back toe stretch for good measure!  Sister Gracie has such a great purrsonality and what you see in her pictures is what she is really like.  She is just a fun girl, no doubt about it.  But I must tell you, Sister Gracie is not a big fan of the brush or comb, unlike yours truly.  Last night when she was fluffing up Dad while he was sitting on the couch her loose fur was flying everywhere.  Dad got the comb and combed Sister Gracie for almost five minutes straight.  He got so much loose fur out of her I thought he was building a kitten!!!  By golly, she liked it, she totally liked it.  But, will she come back for round two?

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Sister Gracie has a beautiful tummy…. Bugsy and Knuckles weren’t too sure about the brush at first, but they are starting to like it too. Must be an acquired taste for some.

pawhugs, Max (on the way to see Dad’s post)

Have you tried the zoom groom on Gracie? Jimmy and Archie don’t really like to be brushed but they both will stand still for the zoom groom 🙂

sigh…..Sister Gracie is just lovely. Mom needs to get on it about brushing us more often. Course someone (*cough*MO*cough*) needs their nails cut again as well….

Miss Gracie, I do not allow a comb or brush to touch me, ever. I don’t care how much of my hair is flying around or that I constantly bomit up hairballs – no brushies!

Five minutes of brushing? One of my kittehs might last 5 seconds……

Those toesies My mom LOVES toesies. If I stretch mine..it’s all over Gracie. She has to give them kissies.

I love combing. Some kitties will take combing over brushing. I like both but combing is so peaceful. xoxox

Pretty, pretty Gracie! Loved your walk down memory lane (Mauldin Patch) It’s easy to see why you have such a big heart. I had a beautiful horse when I was a little girl that really made me fall in love with animals, plus my mom took in every stray cat and we cared for them. Bailey and Angel are my kids and I couldn’t love them more. Thanks for the memories.

You have such a beautiful tummy Gracie!! The kitties here don’t like to be brushed at all and will run away and hide! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

One thing a cat should do is keep the human staff guessing. That may be what Sister Gracie was doing when she allowed herself to be brushed!

I would love to lay on my back with my tummy up in the air, but I don’t always find it easy to do. Although, I am able to lay belly up with a toy in my paws. 😉

Woofs & hugs, <3

When it comes to brushing or combing, with some kitties it is all about timing!

I (emma ) likes to be brushed too. I have sessions with my papa. Mama doesn’t know how I liked to be brushed but I let her brush me sometimes.

Buster hates it, but humors papa when he does.

We were laughing when you said you thought he was building another cat, that much hair eh?

Sister Gracie looks like she could benefit from Weight Watchers. I’m just meowin’. Bet she lost 5 lbs after the combing.

Gorgeous tummy and toesies! I love to be combed. I especially love to be furminated!

Sister Gracie should host a kitty exercise program! She has all the good stretches and moves. To me there is nothing better than a good brushing especially when my furs are flying during shedding season…glad your sister gave it an unbiased try.

It is the season for Furminators!
QM had at Brutus (only his back, mind you) for a good 5 minutes also, and the mound of fur was nearly as large as His sisfur Emo-Mari! We all have turns to take, because tumblefurs are beginning to appear!

We wish you all a happy Holiday weekend!

Sister Gracie looks like she knows how to enjoy herself! Our Mumsy tried to leave a comment at your Dad’s post, but it would not take it. We’ll leave it here and you can show it to your Dad. Thanks, Brian! You made me think of all the farm cats we had when I was a girl. They were “working” cats in that they were mousers, especially in the barn. But they always got chicken, ham, and beef that we had left over too. I always loved the kitties at the Feed and Gain store too. Our local one here… Read more »
