Gee, I’ve got three different categories going on here today, New Stuff, Old Stuff and a couple Awards.  Do notice that I’m not complaining about the weekend monsoons and lack of window whiffies MOL!  Lets get started, shall we?

New Stuff

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
I got my new Forty Paws Ham-mick and I love, love, love it. Notice that this one is not sagging down to the floor, yet.  But speaking of our friends at Forty Paws, their Smokey has cancer, so if you haven’t stopped by yet with purrs and prayers, please do so today.

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Sister Zoe got her new scratching tower and she is one happy girl.  Her tower is her most favorite snoozy spot and she was quick to break it in with a nice long nap!!!

Old Stuff

Well of course the old stuff I would be referring to would be our Dad.  I want to thank you for all the purrs, woofs and prayers, our Dad is doing pretty darn good and seems to be getting along just fine.

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Anyone who knows our Dad knows he loves his coffee and as soon as he woke up after surgery he asked for coffee.  He said the coffee was pretty darn good even if the cup was kind of small!!!


My friend Piranha from A Day in the Life of Piranha Banana shared two awards with us…

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

Thanks so much Piranha!  If you don’t know Piranah, please do stop by and you will be glad you did.  Piranah is quite the woofie and is a Therapy Dog, has a regular newspaper column and runs a socialization group for doggies.  I know you will enjoy this fun blog!

That’s my Monday wrap-up, but don’t forget the Opt-to-Adopt Blog Hop tomorrow.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

  1. Sometimes, Cats Herd You

    We are purring loudly for Smokey. We’re glad your Dad is doing OK.. Our head peep never thought of asking for coffee after surgery. She is SO doing that next time. She thinks it’s barbaric that they make you go without coffee the morning of surgery. Have a great Monday, Brian!

  2. Marg

    Oh Brian, that Ham-Mick does look really really comfy. You look so happy there. And the new scratching tower looks terrific. Glad the Dad is A OK. Good news.
    And congrats on the two awards.
    Hope all of you have a super duper day.

  3. Fuzzy Tales

    Concats on the awards, Brian! And the new hammick and scratcher are awesome. Especially that scratcher!

    We’re glad your dad is feeling better — too funny that his first request was for coffee. That could be our human, double cream, please. 🙂

  4. Angel Abby

    We feel so bad for Smokey and Maw and Paw because this year has been so difficult and now dear Smokey is ill. We are purrarying very hard. We are glad you got a new ham-mick and you look very cozy. We are so glad your Dad is doing well and we will continue to keep him in our purrs too. Everyone has our purrs even those who don’t think they need them. I think we all need to start a big nap pile of purrs just to keep the good vibes going.

  5. Old Kitty

    Awwwww your poor dad! Awwww! We are cranking up the healing purrs and hugs for your lovely dad!

    Yay for your hammicks!!! Take care

  6. Hannah and Lucy

    We are purring hard for your Dad and we had to smile about his first request being for coffee. We are sending hugs to him and whiskery kisses here’s hoping we don’t make him sneeze!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. Angel and Kirby

    We are glad your new ham-mick does not sag! That looks like a cool tower.

    We know your Dad does not always drink coffee through a straw, but hospitles are funny like that!

  8. Pumpkinpuddy

    In order: The new hammock and tower look pawsome. Enjoy!

    So glad the dad person is doing well. It can be scary for us kitties when the humans are sick.

    Concatulations on your well deserved awards!

  9. Tamago

    The new scratching tower looks pawsome!
    Sending purrs to your dad. I hope he makes full recovery quickly. Glad he enjoyed his coffee after waking up from surgery 🙂
    Congratulations on your awards! Have a wonderful new week!

  10. mariodacat

    I’m still purring for you dad and Smokey too. So good to see your dad looking good, even if he is flat on his back. Hope he gets all better soon. You and your sisters will have to take extra good care of him. Congratulations on all the new stuff.

  11. Emma and Buster

  13. Sparkle

    Concatulations on your awards and paws up for your new lounging places! I’m glad your human is bouncing back in time to come to Barkworld – my human is looking forward to seeing him!

  14. Katie Isabella

    Oh Brian, it was so good to see your Daddy. He must have been in the 1 day surgery unit I hope? He is looking good there. You all need to hold him down. (My mim feels that way about coffee too!)

    I love MY ham-mick too! It is nice and sturdy and doesn’t sag under my 11 pounds. Let me go see about Smokey. Sister Zoe, you look awesome up there on your new tower!!

  15. Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

    Hope your Dad is continuing to recover.

    Mom would love to have Phantom sleep on a doggy bed that is like those hammicks, but the bony old guy prefers the hardwood floor.

    Congrats on your very sweet award.

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  16. Mags Corner

    You two look very happy and comfy on your new Ham-mick and scratching tower. We are thrilled to hear your dad is doing so well and is getting his coffee. Keeping prayers going for him to stay doing well. Hugs and nose kisses

  17. Kitties Blue

    Brian, does Dad Terry know you posted his after surgery photo? Your new ham-miPurrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jock and Zoe’s new tower are catabulous. And concats on your awards.

  18. Caren Gittleman

    I am so sorry but my Mom is not polite at all! She was LAUGHING at your Dad’s photo! The NERVE of her!!!! Do you believe it? It reminded her of her lithotripsies and she is the same as your Dad. As soon as she gets out of a litho the FIRST thing she asks for is coffee!
    Let me say for my rude Mom, that we are BOTH glad that you are doing well and Mom cannot wait to see you in a few days!
    Love, Cody

  19. Tillie and Georgia

    WOW!!! That IS a lot of stuff, and all of it good too 🙂
    That ham-mick looks mighty comfy Brian 🙂
    We are glad your Dad is doing better! Woot!!
    Pawsome awards too 🙂
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger,JJ and Julie

  20. Annie

    Where to start? There’s so much going on at your place! First, Brian, you look soooo cute in that pic on your new ham-mick. Zoe’s scratching tower is awesome. I think I may get Annie one. That would be cheaper than a cat tree, but if she likes it, then I’ll know that she would most likely like a tree. (She snubs everything so I’ve been hesitant to buy an expensive tree to have her snub that too.) Your dad looks great, especially for just coming out of surgery, but coffee with a straw is a big bummer. Congrats on your awards!

  21. Sagira

    Oh no! What happened to your dadster? Sure hope he is feeling better in no time at all.

    That new bed looks COMFY!

    Congrats on your award. 🙂

  22. Sue Brandes

    Sorry about Smokey. Left some love there. Hope he gets better soon. Those are some awesome new things. Glad your dad is doing well. Congrats on your awards.

  23. Forty Paws

    Ack! You almost look exactly like Dorf on that ham-mick, except that it isn’t sagging to the ground! Maw had to look several times to make sure that you weren’t Dorf! Very cute photo of you on your Ham-Mick!

    Glad to hear that you Dad is doing good after the surgery, and that he wanted coffee! That’s the spirit!

    Thank you for posting about Smokey. We are very sad that he has the ‘c’ word.

    Many hugs to you,

  24. siku marie

    We are so sorry we missed the news of your dad needing surgery; but are howling with happiness that he appears to be OK. Still just to be certain we are sending White Dog healing energies and java coated jolts of positive thoughts.

    The new nap spots both look VERY comfy. We hope they get LOTS of good use.

    Smokey, we do not know you, but if you are a friend of Brian’s we know you are a tough Warrior. We ask the universe to fill you with strength and hope as you fight this monster. Please know you do not fight alone.

  25. emma

    Sounds like Christmas at your house with all the new stuff, how fun! So happy your dad is doing well. You have to swallow your cat selfishness for a bit and take good care of him!

  26. Catherine

    Oh my goodness ~ you must need a snooze after all that is going on at your house. Love that hammock! And I am so glad the dad is doing so much better. Hooray!!!
    xo Catherine

  27. Clooney

    Your Dad sure is a trooper getting coffee after his surgery! We continue to send our purrs for his speedy and full recovery. We are so happy you love your new hammick Brian. They are so cool, someday we need to get ourselves one.

  28. Piranha Banana

    OOoh – your belly is just begging for rubs on that ham-mick! Love the scratching tower – I wonder why they don’t make ‘biting’ towers for dogs too!? It is a cat’s world I guess!

    I am keeping little Smokey in my prayers for a speedy recovery and for your daddy – so that he is 100% soon. A little therapy dog tip from me that will benefit you: Petting a cat (or dog) lowers a human’s blood pressure and increases their serotonin levels…sooooo tell your Daddy my recommendation is to give you lots of petting and scratches behind the ears! It is good for him (and you too)! WOOF WOOF!

    PS – thanks for the kind mention on the awards – you didn’t have to do that, but it was nice! 🙂

  29. Timmy Tomcat

    Big Purrs that Dad is feeling better! Meow
    Our Ham-mick was a bit saggy and dad washed it and Zip right back to new. Best part is we get to break it in all over again
