Whiskers

After nine months of befriending a litter of kittens, I finally have one that will come inside and curl up with me. She sits in the window box and will come in if I open the window! ha. She still wants to be wild, though, and will disappear for days at a time. But when she's around, she's welcome to keep me company. Although, it's a little hard to use my laptop when she's laying on my hands or the keyboard. :)

  2. She's a girl...haha...even with whiskers. Her twin Mustache is a boy, though!

    Here's my lemon bar recipe I was talking about that uses all of those eggs. :)

  3. With a name like Whiskers, it's easy to mistake her for a male... Well... from a distance, anyway.

  4. Ahhh, those look so good and yummy!! I'll have to try them--I thought about making some tonight, but I don't have a lemon cake mix. :(

  5. Silver, so I'm excused for my mistake. :)

  6. Rebecca ~ I used a yellow one and put 2 T of lemon extract in the filling.

    Silver ~ I wonder if she'd like Orson. :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Alas, I have no lemon extract either. :)

  8. Silver coming to your defense...how 'silver-rous' of him! ha.

  10. Well, after reading Betsy's comment about Mustache, at first I was going to say, "With a name like Mustache, he'd better be a 'he.' " Then I thought, well, Whiskers sounds like a masculine name, too. (Having a beard, of course I think that way. There are people who've complimented my whiskers!)

  11. Gloria ~ she is nice..a little whiney, but nice. ha. If you pet her, she quiets down. But if you don't pay any attention to her, she's in between your legs, trying to trip you up crying. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes Betsy, he's a knight in silvering armor. :)

    Hi Gloria!!

  13. thats remember a little cat we had by a time (esperanza take from the street) and ehn I was at computer she (was a she too) climb until my head aso sometime I type with her in my head!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Silver, I'm rather partial to whiskers on a man--my hubby has a beard. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. She looks quite content
    Under your tent
    Coming and going at ease
    And sitting where ever it is that will please
    Like right in front of you
    So your attention will have to come due
    Wait until she tries to type
    And then idgjosdjpofshdgsk come out of the pipe..haha

  16. Sometimes I change the style or shape of mine, but I've had a beard quite often during my adult life. I've had this one for about twelve years, now.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Silver ~ I named them before knowing their sexes. Hence Marmalade with the girly name! ha.

    Gloria ~ they are sweet like that, aren't they? I'm enjoying her!

    Pat ~ oh, she's done that a few times...typed a bunch of crazy rhymes. Well, the didn't really rhyme but she deleted a few lines of mine!

  18. Hubby grew his when we were dating and shaved it off for the wedding (a request of his mother), and grew it back during the honeymoon, and has had it ever since. 14 years. :)

  19. Good thing animals aren't sensitive about their names like humans are.

    ReplyDelete
  20. awww too cute...out new little one likes to snuggle on our chest at night when we or playing cards or watching tv...

    ReplyDelete
  21. haha well when she wants to tease
    And no longer wants to please
    She'll pull an Orlin and chew the keys
    Of just scatch at your toes and knees..haha

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh Whiskers! Such a perfect name and too cute. Doesn't it just make your day better when an animal is snuggled up with you? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pat ~ Scratch at my knees?
    Oh, that would not please!
    She's keeps drawing blood
    even when she's just playing for fun!

  24. Our feral mother cat has been gone all summer and she now is back getting food since it is cold and snowing. She does let us pet her but she is so scared of any fast movements. I am so glad the kitty is coming in now. I think she might get closer and closer the more times she comes into the house.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Larry ~ it's nice to know I'm not the only one caring for the ferals. :)

  26. Gloria ~ I cooked all day, dear...getting ready for tomorrow. Now my kitchen floor needs mopped! I'm too tired...I think I'll wait for tomorrow! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hope you can rest betsy I make a lot of things today too and Im so tired!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Betsy, I found a lemon bar recipe that called for four eggs and doubled it. It's in the oven now! My kitchen could use mopping too!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sweet pictures! Whiskers is a cutie.

    ReplyDelete
  30. anyways dear Rebecca you have alot of eggs:)))

    ReplyDelete
  31. Rebecca ~ that's perfect! You'll have to share if it turns out to be a good recipe! Did you use lemon juice?

    Gloria ~ I'm going to leave the house cleaning until tomorrow. I need to rest with a cup of tea now. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Why lemon squares, anyway? I thought Super Bowl partygoers usually wanted beer, pretzels, and raw meat? Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I heard pizza and chicken wings are the most popular Super Bowl fare. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Chicken wings are a waste of time. All bones, no meat. I like chicken strips, the so-called "boneless wings." Sometimes they call them chicken fingers, or something else, but as long as it has the right kind of hot sauce (NOT barbecue sauce, that's usually boring).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes the terrible is clean the house, hope you can rest betsy!
    Maybe tomorrow I make my post that I tell you is almost ready:)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Silver ~ true...wings really don't have much meat on them!

    Gloria ~ I'm looking forward to your post! :) I'm sure I'll be online during a lot of the game. I'm not a big football fan. :)

  37. what pretty eyes and snowy whiskers!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope (crossings fingers) you said that? the englisg people always said (lol) to be ready in the morning because in the afternoon maybe I go to my Mom house

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, Martha~ she does have the snowy whiskers, doesn't she? And a white stripe down her belly to match her paws. :) I see on my sidebar you made Stromboli! Yum. I haven't made that in years!

    ReplyDelete
  40. OK...I'll be looking for it. Hope you have a nice visit with your mom and dad! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Gloria ~ is your dad feeling alright now?

    ReplyDelete
  42. She is so cute : ) She has really settled in and made herself at home.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Cat ~ now if she'd just stay and give up the wild life! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Awwww...she is so sweet! My cat loves to lay on my hand when I'm trying to type too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Pretty soon she'll be taking over the entire house. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Martha ~ maybe...but she wants out after an hour or so. ...still have that wild streak. :) I keep telling her the domesticated life is so much nicer. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You're pretty good at taking photos with only one hand :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. KathyG ~ HA...I did have a few blurry ones that I had to delete. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a sweet set of pictures... I found myself oooing and awwwing...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Orlin and his teeth draw blood all the time
    Especially when I won't let him rhyme..haha

    ReplyDelete
  51. That kitty bites?
    Wow, Orlin's the mean type!
    Have never had a cat use their teeth
    to say they are king of the beasts.
    Claws are bad enough!
    Have some now from little scuffs.
    Teach that cat some manners
    or he'll end up in the slammer!
    lol!

    ReplyDelete

    How are you all feeling over there?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh, Gloria ~ can't wait! I haven't been on my computer all day until now! :)

  67. oh, that is jsut so lovely. :D

    ReplyDelete
  68. What a cutie! I have a weakness for black and white cats as my first childhood cat was one name "Pokey" after the Gumbo cartoon horse of the same name. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. awww. Betsy, are you on facebook? There is a cute cat website and today it was a cartoon that said why there will never be any more 'take your cat to work' days. It showed all the people in their office cubicles with cats on the keyboards. hahahaa
