What a Cute Kitty!

Taking a stalking-break. We're busy unpacking boxes from our move and he likes to use them as ambush cover so when one of us or Hank walks past, he jumps out and likes to 'attack'. He'll jump on Hank, but he just runs past us like he thinks he's scaring us. :)

This is his favorite perch... what a cute kitty! As you can see out the window, we still have our spring break snow. It's so pretty!!

Silly Panda!

Hankie is an amazing napper! He loves perching on things and finding a way to curl up and sleep. This was one of his favorite spots - it was near my Cricut table and in the living room near everything that happened. Now in the new house, he has some new spots - especially in my Cricut room.

This is a picture of my Sandy Panda (that's his nickname)... investigating the noisy thing. I had just gotten up to get lunch ready when my husband called me in to check on the cat and make sure he wasn't about to get in trouble.

Panda Wants Attention!!

That panda just wants attention!!  I was cutting some laminated pieces for work, and he just had to come and see - and then wanted me to pet him.  What a cute baby!!  This pic is from March 2008 when he was just about a year or so old.

"Mama!  Pay attention to me!" he's saying... can't you hear him in his little baby kitty meowing?

My Beloved Beannie

This is a picture of my beloved kitty Jellybean.  She was my constant companion from October 1989 until she passed at the end of January 2006.

When I bought her, she was already grown, and had lived all her life in a cage (poor baby)... so it took a long time for her to stop being afraid.  When she got over that, she became the very best kitty ever. 

I still miss her so much.

So I have to tell you this funny story about my Panda!! 

Just this morning he was examining some unpacking we were doing.  Something spooked him, and he jumped.

This wasn't just a normal kitty-jump....  this was straight up AND backwards about 2 feet!  It was very funny.. and of course, VERY cute!

First Two Pics of my Kitties

Introducing Hank.....
This is Hank, also known as Hankie, Hankie Pankie, Hankie Trouble, Hankie Lion, and a million other cute kitty cat names.

Hank came to me while I was living in Laredo, and was given to me by a teacher/friend whose grandmother could no longer care for him.  He was just a baby... only 4 months old.  I have lots of baby-Hankie pics and will scan and post those too.  He was a big trouble maker when I first got him!!! 

Hank is now 10, and will be 11 people years old on April 19th.  He goes to the vet to be sure he's a healthy-Hankie... and usually gets his picture taken with his eyes closed because he doesn't like the flash.

Hankie also does one special thing.... he says, "Mama"..  Yes, for real!  Many people have heard him, and can't believe it.  Trouble is, he doesn't do it on cue... so I need to work very hard to get it on video.

Introducing Sandy.....

This is Sandy - he's quite a cute little thing.  Sandy was not a planned kitty for us - we were walking into the Wal-Mart in BA, OK one afternoon, and I heard meowing.  When I first saw this baby-kitty... he looked just like a small version of my Hankie!  I loved him the moment I saw him.  After our shopping, I called the lady, and they met me to give me this little cute baby!!!!

He gets called all kinds of things... Sandy, Sandy-Panda, Baby, Baby Panda, Sweetie, Baby-Kitty, etc. 
He's now 2 going on 3 years old (in April) but has this little baby meow.  Oh, he sure can meow loud enough to my husband when he wants food or the litter cleaned... but otherwise, just a little squeaky, adorably cute kitty meow.

So here are my two kitty-babies...  I'll have lots more as this blog continues to grow!!
