Beautiful kitties, alek0!  How nice that they all get along so well!

Seems that your "cat theme" is cats who are mostly white--like kaffe's theme is the "smudge" noses.   :D

Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on December 19, 2007, 06:36:04 PM
Thanks for your comments!

Yeah, seems that I have a mostly white cat theme, don't you know how great white cat hair goes with black or navy blue suits :lol

I love cats in all shapes and colours, but I guess I do have special fondness for "mostly white" since my first cat was white except for tabby gray tail and one splotch of  grey near the tail. When I finally settled in HK, it just turned out that two kittens needed a home (Stefie and Mitzie, they are siblings), and I didn't care much what colour they were. They were extremely skinny, their fur looked awful, but they were in desperate need of a home, and SPCA would have likely put them down since they were too young and not very attractive looking kittens. So I took them in, and they grew up into beautiful, loving cats. Sophie was an attempt to provide some company for Stefie, which worked out quite nicely, though Mitzie just tolerates her, jealous creature. Because of her jealousy I decided to get a ragdoll since they are calmer than domestic asian off the street cats, I wanted to add one more rescue if things turned out better with Mitzie, but since they haven't I'll keep it at three for now. At least Stefie has a playmate, a pity it just isn't possible to get a good photo of them chasing each other at crazy speeds.

I just had to tell you Sophie is a beautiful cat, with the purrfect fluffy & fun, yet regal name. 


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on March 14, 2008, 08:37:12 PM
Thank you, she is indeed beautiful and she knows it, probably that's why she is so naughty, knows she can get away with it  :D

Sophie, chasing the ball:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/0/5/051b0da0e1f750f870f7f8c516d2a50e_content_large.jpg)

Stefie recently started sleeping on the pineapple bed, instead of in it:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/1/a/1a7cb5cdf39910f4968be4a3cd75a3ae_content_large.jpg)

Stefie and Mitzie. Yes, there are two cats in there :) How can they be comfortable like that, I have no idea.

(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/8/e/8ee78feb6736b0ff19316a26a49f02fb_content_large.jpg)

All three, with fling-ama-string. They love that toy, but they get it only under constant supervision, since it is (like most toys unfortunately) made in China.

Alek0:  Your house is so clean and sooooo full of kitty toys and wot-nots.  Its good you don't need a litter box!  More space for kitty toys and wot-nots!   :D :D :D

All three cats are looking real good.

Oh they are CUTE!!  Love that last pic of Sopie airing out her fuzzy belly.  Stefie & Mitzie seem to really love each other (or else just use each other for warming pads like mine do).

Stefie does exactly what my cats do to their dome beds - lays on top then you have to constantly uncollapse it again.  Silly things.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie

Post by: alek0 on March 16, 2008, 04:21:28 AM
Thank you! This lying on top of dome beds is a recent thing, silly kitties.

Stefie and Mitzie really love each other, they are siblings. Sophie and Stefie also love each other, but Mitzie, jealous creature, only tolerates Sophie. Original plan was to get Sophie and one rescue kitten if older two reacted well to her, but considering how Mitzie reacted I guess I'd better stay at three. It took months and lots of freeze dried treats for Mitzie to accept Sophie. All three can snuggle together, but almost never two girls alone.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on April 14, 2008, 07:27:26 AM
Some new pics. Hot weather has started, so Sophie now regularly sleeps on coffee table or kitchen floor:

Eye is fortunately back to normal, as you can see:

What lovely cats. I don't think there's such a thing as an ugly kitty. Cats set a hard to reach standard of beauty, in my opinion.

Some new pics:

Sophie, looking at the bird and making same noises as when she asks for freeze-dried chicken or Kitty Kaviar treats:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/e/8/e8fbd9e0b375d0a369ebff053f7e9ebf_content_large.jpg)

She was very disappointed, I'm afraid. Bad mommy didn't catch the bird for her  :D

the last pic in the first set you posted is my fav. All the kitties snuggled together is such a happy sight. I love it when our cats do that. Especially after fighting all day with each other. It reassures me that they really are family and love each other. All you pics of your kitties are great. They are very healthy and happy .You are obviously a great cat parent.

Post by: kaffe on May 04, 2008, 09:45:13 PM
ha ha ha ha   :D   So Sophie was chirping and trilling at the bird (looks like a cocaktoo?)... that's a classic kitty hunting alert sound, you know...  maybe Alek, you need to get her a bird toy to make up for your faliure to catch that bird! ha ha ha ha  ... oy!  Mitzie is getting rather portly, ah?  Hope you find the magic kibble for her!


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 05, 2008, 12:04:27 AM
Thank you!

Kaffe, I took out Da bird today to make up for my hunting failure, lol! Funny thing is that Sophie didn't do that kitty hunting alert sound  that my other two do when they see birds, she was really making "give me the treat sound"  ;D She is crazy about anything with feathers when it comes to toys.

As for Mitzie's weight, yup, she is a bit chubbier. I've been out of Ziwipeak for a few days and I've been mixing 1/2&1/2 instead of higher Ziwipeak ratio  for last 2-3 weeks or so (delayed shipment of online order), and you can already see the difference on the little piglet. She has been overweight ever since her spay, but how much overweight is really dependent on the food.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catbird on May 05, 2008, 05:12:31 AM
Gee, Sophie, you mean Alek wouldn't give you that nice bird treat? ;D

I love the "belly" picture of Sophie.  And all the cats look so happy together!

 What a gorgeous family you have and your Stefie looks exactly like my Tinker! Does she have green eyes?


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 05, 2008, 09:16:49 PM
Yes, he has green eyes. Stefie is short of Stefan, sorry for gender confusion, Stefie is a boy. Incredibly sweet boy in fact, unlike his sister Mitzie who has a bit of a temper. She huffs when she doesn't get what she wants, can sulk for quite a while, and she is the real boss in the house.

Post by: alek0 on May 11, 2008, 09:39:02 PM
Some new pics.

Stefie and Mitzie in the tunnel. The tunnel has partly collapsed as a consequence of Sophie jumping through top middle hole and then running out at crazy speed (while growling and carrying her toy mouse), and then the older two moved in to just sit there and later sleep in there, to Sophie's great disappointment.

ooohhh yehhh... "Da Feddah"!!!!  How many of these do your kitties' go through in 3 months, Alek?  Lord, I keep buying these things and by weeks' end, they're totalled!  Cats absolutely love 'em!


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 25, 2008, 01:51:37 AM
They definitely love them, though here it takes more than a week to destroy it, mainly due to a large selection of interactive toys and I usually pick a different one every day to play with them. What doesn't last very long around here are Da Bird refills, if Sophie catches it she doesn't let go and tries to carry it inside one of the dome beds  :D

Some more pics:

Stefie and Mitzie in the new bed

Catbird, that's because I have a large selection to choose from, digital cameras are a great invention ;D I just wish Sophie would be easier to take photos of, she is usually so fast that most attempts to take photo of her playing end as a photo of grey blur.

Awww, what a cutie.....but Sophie,  Im not too convinced that place looks like the most comfortable napping place in the world.....I guess if one is tired, napping places can be anything.....beds, footstools, carpeted floor....cold, hard, small end-tables...... :-\ ;D


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catbird on June 17, 2008, 12:06:16 PM
Sophie just thinks that it is a pedestal, not a coffee table.  She knows that she is a queen, and wants to be in the place where she can be noticed and honored, above it all... ;D

Hi, Alex0,

We also have Sleepypods --- my guys also like to sleep in that lid like a cradle...and because of the netting, it keeps cool, too.   ;)


P.S.  Mitzie's tummy is so cute!

Post by: alek0 on August 27, 2008, 05:23:21 PM
Another one in sleepypod. I installed the lid and Sophie definitely prefers to be in the lid, while the other two prefer the bed. They all like it, especially Stefie and since the lid is already attached hopefully it should be easy to get Stefie out in an emergency. Stefie is my problem child when it comes to carriers, and I was very concerned how could I get him out in case there is another fire, there was a fire in my building few years back and took quite a while to catch him.

Post by: lesliek on August 27, 2008, 06:08:15 PM
That is so cute, especially Sophie in the lid ! Unfortunately cats are notorious for running and hiding during a fire. Firemen have nicknamed them crispy critters because of it.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: JJ on August 27, 2008, 06:23:40 PM
They look like they made themselves right at home already in the lil pod. Just a suggestion but would a harness make it easier to retrieve your babies should you have to in a hurry? Some people I know probably would not use them-


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on August 27, 2008, 07:53:37 PM
Thanks for suggestion, but I am afraid it wouldn't work for Stefie. He even managed once to escape from the carrier, harness would be too dangerous when he is in panic. Pod should work, though. And girls are not a problem. You just put carrier down and Sophie will go in to investigate (and complain once the zipper is closed but then it is too late  :D ), Mitzie is a bit more complicated but still doable. Last time when there was a fire took me less than a minute to get Mitzie in hers, and then I spent remaining time trying to catch Stefie and put him in the carrier. I think the pod will work, I've been practicing quickly closing it and I think it should be no problem at all. And also since he loves sleeping in it, he'll probably feel safer and calmer than in regular carrier.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catbird on August 28, 2008, 05:09:25 AM
Great "pod pics"!  I may have to look into one of those for some of mine who hate the carrier.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: JJ on August 28, 2008, 08:09:36 PM
Agree with your saying he may feel safer in the pod which is good when you need to have them all together so you can get out fast.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catwoods on August 28, 2008, 10:30:15 PM
I love the way they jam in together and share. Those pods do seem like a good idea, mine don't like carriers either.

Stefie, one of his favourite places, he makes himself a nest out of a curtain and just sits there and looks outside, or sleeps partly hanging over the sofa edge:

Just a quick head-up about the Pod...I once quickly zipped up and somehow the zipper closed so that one of the tracks was off.  I noticed this in the taxi on the way to the vet, so I was able to hold the Pod like a box with my hands on the bottom of it.  If I'd have used the handle with the zipper slightly off track like that, I bet it would have completely unzipped and the bottom of the Pod and Mooch would have fallen onto the street.   :o

Aleo, such great pictures, what a great crew you have, they look very very happy.  Thank you for sharing your pics, they bring a smile to my face.  That pic of Stefie, if you look close enough,looks like he's wearing a cap!   ;D  Its just the curtain though.  Silly kitty.

Your right those eyes do match the drapes - what an appropriate place for her pic to be taken to set off her eyes with that background.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on September 23, 2008, 07:24:56 PM
Actually her eyes are very light blue, but somehow if you put her next to whatever shade of light blue, her eyes will look as if the colours match.

As for the ruff or whatever you call it, it can look better, I'm afraid this time we haven't given her that great haircut. She doesn't like haircuts, and we should have done her nails first  :D

Post by: alek0 on September 27, 2008, 10:48:27 PM
Ups, I'm afraid not. Looks familiar, but :( I am in general bad with recognizing celebrities, even if I remember the name I keep mixing up those which look very similar, like Gary Cooper and Gregory Peck, which always annoyed my mother a lot, she found Gregory Peck very handsome and gary cooper not really, but they look very similar to me...

Here is one more pic of Sophie, she looked so cute, I just had to snap a photo:

Thank you! Some more pics.

Sophie and her gift from Kyoto (yay, I managed to find stuffed toy that is NOt made in China):
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/6/c/6c4d7428bcefcc3b8e5b04625a896f58_content_medium.jpg)(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/5/9/5925fba8399932413813784a9f9c89da_content_medium.jpg)

She licked it all over before finally settling down. Btw, that huge thing in the background of second pic is air purifier, and it really makes a huge difference for her asthma.

Sophie and Stefie, new toy, straw ball with feathers:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/2/3/23d1c45d89230829f3371da34d27d9a0_content_medium.jpg)(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/0/0/00ee18e5b3aa428c97e2b0607c59856b_content_medium.jpg)

The toy definitely generated interest, unfortunately it didn't last too long, Sophie has managed to make a hole in it within half an hour :(

A lot more durable toy, catnip chew ring I think by Petstages, survived this treatment repeatedly and is still undamaged :)
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/c/d/cdd0db7dffa1cfcb3f9003b0a4884d36_content_large.jpg)

Thanks for the wonderful pics Aleko!  Yippee, its pawty time, new toys!  That is so funny, with Mitzie in the middle of her "ball go-round-round".  (Thats what Sophers calls it).  Aleko, now its time for you to brave the yakky wakky ball with no "offy" button on it.  I think your cats would go nuts over it...and if not....Im sure you will.....go nuts that is.  I know I am.   ;D


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on October 26, 2008, 09:30:10 PM
Thank you all!

SandyK: I made that mistake quite some time ago (before Sophie came) and I won't do it again  ;D I am sure Sophie would love it, but Stefie and Mitzie were afraid of it and it was driving me nuts. It wasn't even OK just to leave it in the drawer, you open the drawer looking for something and %^&$^$!!!!! reacts. Nothing like sudden "Meeooooowwww" to make you jump (and M&S would run away and hide).

Btw, if Sophers likes that loud ball, have you tried to let her watch Youtube cat videos (those with meowing cats). Unlike the ball, you can regulate the volume, and creates instant interest, including close examination of the screen, behind the screen (where did that cat go, huh? I know I heard it...) etc. it is hilarious for humans and entertaining for kitties :)

SandyK: I made that mistake quite some time ago (before Sophie came) and I won't do it again  ;D I am sure Sophie would love it, but Stefie and Mitzie were afraid of it and it was driving me nuts. It wasn't even OK just to leave it in the drawer, you open the drawer looking for something and %^&$^$!!!!! reacts. Nothing like sudden "Meeooooowwww" to make you jump (and M&S would run away and hide).


LOL Aleko, I too, tried putting it in a drawer and about had a coronary one morning when I was looking for something and yakky ball cried out MMMEEEEEOOOOOOOWWWWW really loud.  Of course Sophers came over and wanted it..."hey mom, THATS where you put it.....LOL  Its like once you get it, you cant get rid of it, its haunting us!  LOL

He he he... I can't remember what I've done with mine, gave it to someone or thrown it away, in any case it didn't arrive to the new place last time we moved. I've just tested Sophie with those babble ball sounds from their website, and she loves it. I knew she would :( But I am not getting it and that's that. But I feel guilty a bit. Oh well.. I'll go get Da Bird out, she loves that and at least it is quiet :)

Thank you!

Mitzie actually stays like that until I remove the mice, and keeps giving me the look "you put them on, you get them off, right now!" Lol. There was no revenge for this photo, she got what she wanted later anyway, so she was happy :) Usually there is revenge only if I dare to play with Sophie when Mitzie wants attention. She can really sulk when that happens, takes quite a bit of effort (and some kitty kaviar  ;D) to earn forgiveness for that.

Thank you! Mitzie really doesn't mind the mice, last time she was just a bit grumpy since she didn't get what she wanted as soon as she wanted it, and I was playing with Sophie first. If I commit that great crime, it takes long, long time of undivided attention to Mitzie (and sometimes even Kittykaviar, universal cure for "The sulks") for her to forgive me :)

Here are some not that great pics, just testing new mobile phone camera. And believe it or not, Mitzie actually likes the mice, purrs very loud, or at least when I put them on her. My bf tried to put one mouse on her yesterday, and she tried to bite him :D

Yippee, its play time!  Looks like Sophie is making her move on that toy!  Hey Alek, it looks like you have a tunnel for your kitties, is that what that is?  Ssshhh, dont say anything but we got one for our Sophers for Christmas and I was wondering how your kids like it? 


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on December 04, 2008, 07:24:17 PM
Yes, it is a tunnel, actually three way tunnel with a hole in the middle, Sophie is crazy about it, she loves to dive through the middle hole and run out through one of the regular exits.

I got few more tunnels, normal tunnel with two openings that Stefie and Mitzie love to sleep in, and another three way tunnel which will soon be taken out of the wardrobe to replace this one when the weather turns colder (different material).

If your Sophers is as hyperactive as my Sophie, I'd guess there is a good chance she will like it.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie

Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on December 06, 2008, 11:27:48 PM
Thank you!

SandyK, that is a kitty airplane,  "wings" have been folded so it is a tighter fit in front of bedroom wardrobe. Since it has a mirror door, you open it by pressing on the door, and Sophie figured it out and keeps trying to open it so we moved some of cat furniture to bedroom to block access.

And Mitzie is sleeping on "watermelon" cat bed, they are now in a phase where they like to sleep on top of collapsed tent beds. They keep going through these phases, sometimes they sleep on top for a period of time, then they prefer to sleep inside for a period of time... Do your kitties do the same thing?

All three at the window:

(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/a/e/ae990c64e46198013729a8f57073a7cd_content_large.jpg)

She is watching one of youtube videos with alternating nature photos and Grieg's morning mood as music. For some reason she likes that. Sophie likes watching other cats on youtube and also some of Baby Einstein videos, and Stefie only likes those Cat Sitter DVDs.

Stefie and Mitzie, sleeping on a squashed watermelon bed:

Not TV, I don't have it, but they watch videos on my computer sometimes. For videos intended for humans, Mitzie likes Star trek, Sophie prefers Farscape although they usually fall asleep somewhere in the middle of the episode  ;D. Stefie only likes videos intended for cats, while the girls are not too interested in those.

Cute pics!  Love those mirror shots and seeing both back and front at the same time!  I have a cat video for Mandy that she likes to watch - fish, birds, mice, cats.  When my 4 year old granddaughter was visiting this summer, she thought it was pretty cool that Mandy had a video of her own and loved sitting and watching it with her.   ;D

I love your cats alek0. They are so laid back.

I come to the conclusion that you, like I, learned and realized job number one was turning the home into a temple of peace, comfort, and serenity not only for our pets sake but our own! Works like a charm for the whole family.

Felines are so sensitive to stress and our moods and "vibes" they are practically a mirror of our own psychological state at any given moment.  If your pets acting neurotic or out of character, go look in the mirror. LOL that's what I do.

Does Sophie require much grooming?  What kind of grooming "tools" do you use for her?



Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: tesla on January 06, 2009, 04:10:32 PM

LO Looks like Stefie gave Sophie a perm (free-of-charge)!   ;D  And that pic of Sophie just screams that she is wanting something with THAT look they can give.  Oh pweedy pwease? 


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on January 07, 2009, 05:08:13 PM
Thank you!

For grooming Sophie, we just brush her and also trim her collar (too long, gets in the food if we don;t trim it), under the tail area and the paws. She's got lots of her growing on her paws and since she loves to run we trim it to keep it short and give her better friction, otherwise she can't brake in time and bangs into things.

SandiK, yep, I was holding a mouse in one hand and camera in the other hand, to get a nice photo of her. She is the most difficult one to take photos of when she is awake, she is hyperactive so in many cases I just get gray blur on the photo :)

Stefie is such a sweet cat and he loves both girls and they love him, too. But the girls just tolerate one another and that's that.

Stefie again:

Mitzie, seems that she has slimmed down a bit with more time with Ziwipeak only and no kibble:

Your cats do seem to pose on backgrounds that bring out their colors-- Stefie on the grayish color with stripes that accentuates his stripes, Mitzie on the orange that brings out her orange places, and of course Sophie with her beautiful blue eyes next to the blue drapes.  Their fur looks so soft that I want to reach out and stroke the screen.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catwoods on January 19, 2009, 01:00:32 PM
The backgrounds do indeed enhance the beauties of these cats! And like Catbird pointed out, they seem to head for those areas. Hmmm, they know so much about how to use pattern and color - could they have careers as interior designers, on the sly?


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on January 25, 2009, 08:53:00 PM
Not sure about interior designer careers, but I am pretty sure Stefie shouldn't be a hair stylist. He keeps licking Sophie in the wrong direction, and keeps doing it for so long I had to rub her with a towel afterwards to dry her and then to brush her for quite a while. She loved all the attention, somehow I suspect that this may play a role in why she lets him do it:

I know why Sophie lets Stefie bath her, she is NO dummy!  Sophie knows she wont be the one yakking up that hairball!  One very smaaaart girl!  ;)

Post by: alek0 on January 27, 2009, 02:14:06 AM
He he he, SandiK you might be onto something, in her two and a half years, she has thrown up one single hairball  :D. Not bad for a long-haired girl who only gets hairball remedy if she has been naughty and eaten a piece of aluminum foil, corner of a book cover, or something else that shouldn't have been eaten :)

She does return the favor, though mostly with the tail, she licks Stefie's tail a bit then bites it, licks it again and so on, and he just lets her, amazing:

What can one say other then very very very cute,sweet, mesmerizing and fascinating.  Whats real interesting also . . Sophie is a Rag Doll and Sash is a Ragamuffin that laying on the back belly up thing might be in the genes or something.

 


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: bug on May 18, 2009, 04:33:35 AM
You know, up until I saw a picture of Raina (LadyJemima's cat) on another thread, it didn't dawn on me that Mia is probably part Ragdoll. She looks like Raina, only black and always sleeps on the floor like Sophie and Sash. Does Sophie like to be picked up and held on your arm horizontally? Mia loves being carried around like that until your arm falls off.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 18, 2009, 06:15:01 AM
Sophie likes to be carried but not for too long, she soon wants down to play. My other two like to be carried a lot more, Stefie horizontally while Mitzie prefers upright, lean-on-the shoulder position.

Speaking about "arm falls off", Mitzie is my heaviest cat and she loves to sleep on me. Few days ago, she was sleeping on my feet, and I overslept, so when domestic helper for weekly cleaning showed up at 8:45 am I just jumped out of the bed and promptly fell since my right leg was just totally dead (took a while for sensation to return) and I hurt my ankle so now I am still limping a bit.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: bug on May 18, 2009, 05:47:06 PM
Oh my gosh, that's funny and kind-of not at the same time. I've had that happen in the middle of the night when I've had to go to the washroom. Go to take a step and wham! on the floor. I can't blame it on one of the felines, though, that was my own stupid sleeping position. I hope it feels better soon because I can't imagine having to stand to make those cakes of yours with a sprained ankle.

Another photo, I just changed the cardboard insert in the scratcher, so of course everybody was interested, Stefie got to it first and he was rolling all over the scratcher, it was hilarious, unfortunately couldn't get more ridiculous positions clearly because he was moving too fast. Next time I'll take a video...

Post by: alek0 on July 02, 2009, 07:41:25 PM
Sophie also loves her big toy mouse. She also loves things with feathers and usually grabs either the big mouse or something with feathers. Occasionally she goes for little stuffed animal toy and gives it a good wash, just sits there and  licks it, so cute. Mitzie tends to like long worm-like things, catterpillar toy and such, Stefie is crazy about small toy mice, sponge balls, and catnip toys (which I keep separately and not out in the open, to keep the smell longer).


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: JJ on July 04, 2009, 02:57:12 PM
My friend when she was here used to put catnip on paper and then roll the toy in it and then leave it down on the floor and Misha would just have one happy time with the toy and roll on the paper with the catnip for her 'lil shower' to get it on her fur. So cute.

All fantastic photos. These girls are definitely living the good life.

BTW Alek, I don't know if your cats throw up, but if they do it on the hardwoods, does it leave a mark? I have to get mine refinished and I'm trying to decide between oil-based and water-based finishes.

Go with Water Base. There are "fast dry" water base floor finish products that are as durable as oil base plus they are less "toxic". This also permits you to apply three finish coats in one day with a two hour before re-coat dry time if conditions are correct.

Post by: alek0 on August 01, 2009, 09:19:39 PM
There is no mark on the floor from that, though there are some scratches from Sophie's back claws when she tries to brake when running at crazy speeds. I think next time I'll go with marble or corian, flats here are small anyway so the price wouldn't be too bad, there would be no scrtaches on that, Sophie would probably prefer colder floors since it is so hot and humid here for most of the year and that would probably be the best choice concerning Sophie's asthma. If/when I buy another place, I'll pay more attention to "green" and "minimum emission" and "hypoallergenic".

One more photo, Mitzie and Stefie in their favourite place again:

Gorgeous kitty eyes in those last shots!  Is Mitzie part Japanese Bobtail?  She has the coloration, and in some of the pics it looks like her tail is a little on the short side.  Those little orange patches are so cute.

Thank you! Mitzie and Stefie are brother and sister, ordinary street-cat variety, rescues as kittens, tail is normal length. And quite strong tail, too (she likes to sleep on her cushion between our pillows and when she is annoyed about something and slaps you on the face with her tail, ouch)

Some more pics, I haven't been able to get to my office chair:

And Sophie has such gorgeous eyes, but we've had recently another eye problem, this time on left side, gone completely after a couple of days of eyedrops. My vet thinks its her immune system issue, since she has allergies, mild IBD, and asthma.

Yes, my Pip likes the office chair too. I always pull up the spare chair when she's in the driver's seat.

I bought a nice comfortable office chair for myself in 97.  Of course the first thing that happened the minute I brought it home was the cats thought . .  "nice, we like it".    :)   I used the chair perhaps a dozen times in 11 years when permitted.

I could certainly use a new style........

                                                     and a piece of cake..... ;)

 ;D ;D ;D Stefie does such a fine grooming job, the girls' fur does look great. He does his own, too, right? ;D ;)

Post by: alek0 on September 30, 2009, 10:46:39 PM
Thank you! If you ever visit HK, you have a cake of course :)

SandiK, I feed Ziwipeak dry and for wet they get Almo Nature, Aixia and Applaws on rotation. They also get freeze dried treats (chicken, salmon, tuna flakes) and about 1-2 times per week they get something raw. In the summer usually just sashimi once a week, when weather gets less hot and humid I give them some raw meat occasionally as well (when I find something fresh enough, and not from China). I know raw fish can result in thiamine deficiency, that's why they get it once per week only.

And yes, of course he does his own too, but he grooms everybody else (cats and humans), too! He is such a sweet boy  :D

Nice choices. Are these available in HK where you shop?  I noticed these are NZ (Ziwi) and the others UK brands tough to get here in the U.S. at least in my region.  Whats your shopping (stock up) routine are you ordering via Internet?


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on October 01, 2009, 06:51:12 PM
I get Ziwipeak from Only Natural Pet store, it is not yet available in HK but it will be soon. I used to buy it from Petsage but then I had a problem with expired bags, bags with mismatched expiry date and Batch number on the sticker and I haven't bought anything from them since. Don't know whether they or their distributor tampered with the bag, and I don't really care, just don;t want to risk buying anything from them anymore. UK and Japan brands are available here, so I get them locally.

Some more pics of the girls.

Mitzie the fashion icon presenting the latest hat trends:

Sophie, surprisingly I got a not-too-blurry pic of her playing, usually she is so fast I just get a gray blur on the photo:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/5/f/5f20a53b498e965a1bb9a925c710e5be_content_large.jpg)

She loves to carry her toy mice into either her blue bed or the watermelon bed and then jumps in and attacks the mouse, the bed and anyone who gets close enough. I wish I could get a pic of jumping watermelon, when she gets crazy inside it and jumps all over the living room  ;D

Wow, Ms. Stephie is definately most serious about her hait styling, she is one busy little beaver in that video!   :D  And Sophie is just soaking it up, she gets almost limp.  I have to admit it does look like it would feel great!  I like Mitzie' hats but Im not so sure she thinks they are that great, that look on her face is priceless.  If it was Sophers, I would be worrying about her getting even with me at some point.   ;D

Nah, she doesn't mind the hats, as long as she is getting attention.

Some new pics, changed the tunnel to a cold weather one, and of course aanything which they haven't seen for a while is very, very interesting:

Watching the video of Stefie watching BBC reminded me how much our cats like to watch YouTube. We do a search for "birds" or "birdsong". Then they sit on my lap, watching intently, chattering away at the birds.

They always look so happy and content. I know all about the heater. My mom has one in her kitchen and the cats gather round it even when it isn't on. Sometimes it's the placebo effect at work.

Aaaw, these are so cute!  I so love the one of Sophie at the beauty parlor with Stefie the hairdresser busy at work!  On the bottom picture, which one is on top smothering the other one, I cant tell, is it Mitzie?  Your kitties just absolutely love each other, at least from the pics.  Do they get into spats on occasion?

Y'know, that top one is so funny because it looks like you were trying to figure out how to use Photoshop to make a funny card for someone but didn't wind up with what you were after. It's hilarious.

What a gorgeous Sophie mat you have!   :D

5am?  How can I get Yoyo to move his breakfast demand from 4am to 5am?  Better yet, 9am?   I wrote in another thread that it was cute how he would do it, but it ain't cute anymore.  It ain't cute at all.   >:(


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catbird on May 27, 2010, 05:24:20 AM
I take it Sophie was a little warm?  :D  Or perhaps just feeling playful?

Slightly OT, but until you both move to bigger digs, you are probably going to have a hard time getting the cats to give up the early-AM breakfast.  If you try to delay them, they will most likely just become more persistent and disturb you all the more.  You'll need to wait until you have a situation where you can keep them in a room separate from you at night for awhile, where they won't bother you, to extinguish the behavior.  It's not that they are starving.  It's that cats are very, very much creatures of routine and habit, and once they establish a pattern, they think they are entitled to it.  (At times I swear mine wear watches.  :D  )  The only thing I can think of that has a slight chance of helping is using light-blocking drapes so that not a ray will get in, perhaps leading them to think that it's not close to morning yet.  But it is a slim hope.

Or maybe sleep with earplugs.  ;D


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: August on May 27, 2010, 05:48:17 AM
I was afraid that might be the answer.  It really is amazing how on the dot 4am Yoyo is.

On that note I guess I better get to bed.   :P

Welcome to my world, Alek and August. Only I get woken up at 2, 4, 5 and 7. 2 and 4 are Pip and 5 and 7 are Mia. I've been kicking Pip out and closing the bedroom door lately. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Sigh.

Post by: alek0 on May 27, 2010, 06:49:12 PM
I am thinking about getting those automatic feeders for the morning. I wonder is there any model that can distribute freeze-dried treats every 15 mins. between 5 and 7 am, once they figure out there are more treats inside they'll just sit next to it :)

Oh gawd, Bug, just, oh gawd.   :P  You are an advanced human to endure that.

LOL Alek0 about your treats idea.  Tell me if it works.   ;)


On a totally different note (I realize you're joking about the feeders), but I got a feeder but am very disappointed in the depth of the plastic bowls where you can place dry or wet.  They are so deep and not so wide - I can only imagine how difficult and rather uncomfortable it would be to eat from those things...so it's in my closet not being used (I tried to return it but couldn't).    :P



ETA : Ooh, Bug, that feeder is gorgeous!


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 27, 2010, 08:07:37 PM
That feeder is indeed gorgeous, and if it would be something that doesn't need to be plugged in, I would consider it.I still think that treat dispensing in the morning would finally allow us to sleep :) It isn;t only that they want to eat, that would be easy, get up , feed them, go back to bed - they want attention and play time.

No, August. I USED to be an advanced human. I've lost too many brain cells getting up in the middle of the night over the years to continue to qualify.

Post by: Mandycat on May 28, 2010, 03:49:17 PM
bug, Alek, and August,
Have any of you tried feeding a really late night snack, or leaving out some food when you go to bed? That seemed to help with Mandy's early morning awakenings.  Once in a while she still starts meowing loudly and demanding breakfast, but most of the time she is now willing to wait a while until I get up.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: August on May 28, 2010, 05:51:19 PM
Sorry to be invading your home thread, Alek0.

Bug, LOL!

Mandy, I feed those little suckers as close to the actual time I get into my bed as possible LOL.  Recently I've been leaving a bowl of Z/D out (since Mooch can only eat that - though he doesn't like to eat it out of a bowl and comes to ask me to serve him a few pieces at a time on the carpet lol, Lulu and Chami love the Z/D dry, too - big sarcastic yay there), but Yoyo won't have anything to do with it.


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: alek0 on May 28, 2010, 08:17:01 PM
I give late evening snack, they get fed at 5 am (bf does that since he can sleep until 9-10 am), and then they wake us up again at 6 am just asking for attention, and then at 7 am when I get up to go to work they fall asleep. I think I am going to start waking them up and not let them have evening nap between dinner and late evening snack  ;D


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: bug on May 29, 2010, 08:03:00 AM
Yep, I always ask mine if they can ever recall a time when I've interrupted their sleep so we could play or eat. So far, they haven't caught on.

We went to Ikea to get a sofa but we just came back with a basket/box (woven seagrass) and a mat for the cats. It is amazing how
much cheaper and often better made are products which are not intended for pets (those baskets are cheap, while wicker pet beds are ridiculously expensive):

That pic of Sophie in the tower - is she on the first level with an opening to the 2nd level that her lil head is popping thru? That would explain how they get from one level to the next one.

I think they don't like the light in their eyes, so the contort into all kinds of positions to block the light.  Bucky does the same thing, though not nearly as cute.  He's very much on his dignity.

Sophie's a brave one! My cats know better than to get in the bathtub. They've learned not to tempt me near a water source! All I have to do now is say "Who want's to learn how to swim?" and they run to hide under the couch!

Princess Sophie has certainly posed for the first picture.  The second one, not so much. ;D Is that her work, or Stefie's?


Title: Re: My Stefie, Mitzie, and Sophie
Post by: catwoods on November 07, 2010, 04:47:01 PM

Oh look at them all intertwined and cuddled up together, its so darling! That picture of Sophies fur is hilarious, I was going to say it looked like something the cat drug in....but its the cat! lol By the way, Im hoping Sophie didnt pay for that hair-do, it doesnt look like they finished, or maybe that was right before the blow-dry and styling was done.  I love it!

I love those blissed-out, slightly crazy catnip expressions! :D

LOL - I love the expression in pix #2 !

"No! You may NOT have it. I will NOT share!"

Love the look on Sophie's face with her paw wrapped on top o' that feather saying 'don't even try it. just don't! It's Mine, all mine!'

Yep, that second pic is great! Smoggy also loves to lick feathers and isn't into catnip like Stormy is.

 :D :D Oh, Mitzie. How can you sleep that way? Looks like there was a little too much catnip passed around. And there's Stephie, trying to "revive" Mitzie in the second photo. Sophie was above all the shenanigans -- as usual. Great pictures!

Mitzie sleeps like my Trevor with the face plant like they just couldn't hold their heads up any longer.  It amazes me they can sleep like that. Trevor does tend to tuck his pawsies in a little more neatly than Mitzie managed there.

When mine fall asleep head down like that I always wonder how they can breathe at all...but apparently they are comfortable.
Ah....wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to sleep in any position like a cat...

This set of pictures could be called "Strange Ways Cats Sleep"!  (Well, I'm not sure if Stefie is actually sleeping there squished under Mitzie.)  Nevertheless, they are great and amusing pictures.

The theme of the day seems to be "sleeping kitties".   :D  Makes me want to do the same!   ;D   Great pics, Alek.

Had a nap earlier myself, although, not with face down position, ahhh to sleep anywhere and be comfy.

All three (or you can't have your office chair, and you can't have sofa either):

Since the comp. chair is so frequently occupied, bf gave up and he is usually sitting on an uncoimfortable foldin chair not to disturb them  :D

They're so cute. Mom sometimes is relegated to eating dinner sitting on a step stool at the grandkids' little play table so she doesn't disturb her kitties. They always want what we want at the same time.

lol Isn't that always the way of things?  Mine love my pillows.  I have been shoved off both my pillows in the last few months.  I now sleep between my pillows.   :-[

Is Stephie voicing an opinion?   ;)

Sophie's picture is just stunning. She's super photogenic. Stephie and Mitzie are always so fun to look at. They have such great expressions and strange habits.

 :D  Mitzie girl, you are living dangerously there!  Good thing Sophie was sleepy!

What was that upthread about Sophie's "glamour portraits"? This one looks more like "caught by the paparazzi when I thought no one was looking"! ;D
