Squirrel Patrol and a Sad for Binga


It's been a long time since we posted as you can see from the last one with the snow on the ground! So we have to give you a new picture of us in the Summer weather.  We love the early Summer nice weather because Mom leaves the slider door open for us with the screen door locked.  That's cuz we learned how to open the screen door... "snickers".  Still, we can smell dem squirrels when they come right to the door to see us. We love this weather and our morning squirrel and birdie patrol.

And we had a sad news for you all. Our special cat friend, Binga, has moved on. She was 19 years old!  It was time and as heartbroken as we are we know she lived the best life any cat could ever have. Her human told the best stories of her and her life with Sparkle and now with Summer. Sparklecat.com has always been such a great inspiration for us and I bet they have left a comment on just about every post we've ever made. We love you Binga and you played your life role purrfectly and left a loving and special mark on the lives of so many! ❤️😻

Head butts and purrs,
Tommy and Teaghan and Mom Brenda

The Ts are Two

Happy Birthday Tomas and Teaghan! 

The Ts are two years old today.  We are so happy these beautiful creatures have come into our lives.  They bring us much joy and keep us busy.    Now that I am not working I get to spend even more time with them.  We all get lots of exercise playing and running around the house but we all eat a lot more too now! LOL! 

Teaghan is 13.6 lbs today (6.06 kgs) and Tommy is 16 lbs (7.25 kgs).  Ok well maybe we should be exercising a little more...

All in all it's a good cats life. 


Blessings!

Dona Nobis Pacem




Today we blog about Peace.  Just last week we got a new cat tree. As we explored it, we looked it all over, sniffed it, tasted it, inspected it, and claimed it each as our own.  Then we had a little power tiff at the top but we got through that and then settled down.  Peace is much better and way more fun to enjoy life.   The only way to Peace is through the love of Peace, not with war.

Peace and love to all,

Tommy & Teaghan

Tommy and Teaghan's First Birthday


It's Tommy and Teaghan's first birthday!  Happy Birthday to the Ts.  My how they have they grown. 

First some official info about them:

Breed: Norwegian Forest Cat 

Date of Birth: 24 Feb 2017 
Color: Red Tabby Blotched & White 
Sire: TICA RW/SGC Into Wishin Rio Samba 
Dam: CFA CH Finnishline McKenzie

Today Beau Beau still looks on because he popped up in my FaceBook feed this morning with one of his "high five" pictures.  It was like he was giving his own birthday wish to Tommy and Teaghan.  Then when I went to upload a video of the Ts watching the squirrels and birds this morning, we got a big dose of lots of old videos on YouTube of Beau Beau and Angie as well. 

 It's been an amazing, fun year watching these two grow into the huge, gorgeous, loving creatures they are today.   We posted their first story here.  They started out as the tiny kittens you see below weighing mere ounces to the approximately 12 and 14 lb furballs they are now.   

Tommy is a love ball who likes to lay across any part of me, jumps on my back or shoulders when he can (that won't last too much longer as he gets bigger I hope!), sleeps with his face to my cheek sometimes with me at night, lays on my stomach with his head in my neck and drools all over me.  He's a funny boy. 

Teaghan took longer to really reach out and touch me.  She now will lay on my stomach at night sometimes and has at times slept by my side or on me.  She likes to sit in front of me the most while I work on my laptop.  I get to work from home a lot more now so I get to spend lots of time with them and they will sleep during the day in their kitty condo beds or somewhere in my office while I'm working.  Amazingly they stay off my desk and just sleep instead.  They associate my office with sleepy time rather than play time.

Tommy and Teaghan don't cuddle with Bob, my husband, but they have finally started to sit next to him on the sofa and Teaghan has sat on his lap a couple of times now.  They are growing much closer to him as he has started to play throw the ball or any of their toys with them for a while each night.  They have really started looking forward to their night time play time with him and it has brought them closer together.  I'm still waiting for them to reach out and touch him at 4 to 5 a.m. instead of me since he's the one that feeds them in the morning.  They seem to think that jumping on me is the trigger to get him up.  Hah!  

Here they are when they were first born and today.

Merry Christmas from the Ts


Merry Christmas everyone!  Wishing you a wonderful, blessed, Christmas Eve and Day filled with joy and wonder and love.  Teaghan and Tommy are happy and healthy and are growing and growing and growing.  They are both around 12 lbs now.  Tommy will continue to get bigger.  They haven't slowed down too much yet with how much they want to eat daily.  They do get lots of exercise running up and down our stairs and chasing each other but they could still use some more.  That's our goal for 2018.  More exercise for them will help to keep them healthy and trim.  Teaghan sort of looks like a furry basketball... LOL!  


Beau Beau and Angie pretty much left our Christmas trees alone.  I think it's because they got to go outside so it wasn't such a big deal to them, and we kept the ornaments up higher.  We still miss them more than anything but it's truly a joy to have the Ts in our lives now.  They certainly keep us busy!

Since the Ts get into EVERYTHING and EAT EVERYTHING, and will still try to chew on cords but not as much as before, and it's their first Christmas we decided to put the tree outside.  We also were going to be on vacation for a week and it wouldn't have been fair to have our friend and cat sitter to have to teach them what a Christmas tree is!  This way we all get to enjoy the tree and the lights with no worries.  Next year we'll try it with a huge tree inside and see what happens. 

Christmas here in the Swick/Bentley household is going to be a pretty quiet one.  Wishing everyone all the happiness and joy in the world. 

Blessings!

Brenda and Bob and
Teaghan and Tommy
