Happy Birthday Sasha!

Sometime about this date, is Sasha's 20th birthday!  Mom bean says he came to live with her and our fur-sibs in mid-July 2000.  He was adopted from the local Humane Society and his age was approximately 7 weeks.  The mom bean did some math and working backwards she decided that May 25, 2000 would be the date...mostly because that was the day they had moved into their house.

To celebrate this milestone, Sasha will likely sleep much of the day away.  Since that would be mostly boring, mom bean went into her stash of photos to find some more lively to share.

Well, this isn't very lively but is the first photo she could find of Sasha.  It was taken in 2007...about the time she got a digital camera.
This is the first photo of the original 3 S's, Silver on the left, Sasha, and Sami to the right.  

Sasha's favorite bean was (and still is) our bean brofur.  Here he is wearing C's toque - no one else could have put it on his head.
Sasha has always been the tolerant cat. He put up with the continual addition of other cats, Silver, then Sami, next up were the twins Shady and Silas, and then the biggest pest of all, Saku. 
This photo is proof that at one time the two of them actually shared a cat tree!  (Mom bean can't remember this at all and if there wasn't photographic proof she wouldn't have believed it.)

More proof, here's Silas squished into a cat bed with Sasha! For those who haven't met Silas before, he weighed in at 22 lbs. at his heaviest.  Sasha, on the other hand has never weighed more than 10 lbs.
This kitty pile made mom bean smile.  She never could make her bed back then.  Clockwise from the top left are Sasha, Shady, Sami, and Saku.

Okay, this still hasn't been furry lively has it?  

Is this better?  It's Sasha playing with a kicking toy...we think Saku was waiting his turn.
When we moved to this house in 2010, there were four kitties, Sasha, Sami, Silas, and Saku.  The sunny room became Sasha's favorite place to hang out.  He loves the sun on his furs and if mom bean gives him a bit of nip, he's even happier! (This photo is from 2013 which is the year we started this blog.)

Another photo from December 2013.  Sasha is the only kitty who didn't mind the Santa hat, and he never efur tried to take an ornament off the tree.

Sasha also loves to be able to get outside in the summer time, and he especially likes to eat grass.  One year the mom bean even grew grass in the house.

In 2017, Sheldon came to live with us for a little while with his sticky bean and his mom.  Poor Sasha, the kitten loved him too!

These days Sasha spends a fair amount of time sleeping. He's gotten skinny though he hollers like crazy when he wants to be fed.  He's become a fan of the new water fountain - before he would only drink out of bowl in the sink.  Mom bean thinks he's deaf, but his eyesight seems to be good. His favorite person is still the bean brofur with mom bean coming in second.  Sasha doesn't much care for the sticky bean, but like the kittens before him, the sticky bean loves Sasha.

We hope you've enjoyed the trip down memory lane with Sasha.  There won't be any big pawty, Sasha would probably sleep right through it!  But we appawciate our furriends who we know will drop by to wish our special boy a happy day.

Mom bean says every day with Sasha is a blessing.  He's simply a sweet boy, and while she would prefer if he didn't wake her before 6 a.m. (and he does frequently), she's grateful he's been part of our lives for nearly 20 years.  Happy Birthday Sasha!

A visit with Sheldon

Hi efurrybody, Sheldon here today.

The old mom bean came to visit me the other day! I'm sure she'd say she came to see the sticky bean but we all know she really wanted to visit with me.

I'm not a big fan of that sticky bean.  Sometimes he tries to pick me up or pull my tail.  Stanley lets him do that but I sure don't!  

So when he finally went out to the front porch I seized my chance and had a cuddle with her. It may not look like it but I was purring in this picture.  It didn't last long though 'cuz that sticky bean loves his grandma.  

Have a good day efurrybody!

Keeping an eye on things

Hi efurrybody, it's Saku Sasha here today. (Mom bean is appawently losing her mind...we knew it, now she does too.)

I do this efurry morning.  I wake the mom bean up at dark o'clock so she can get us our breakfast.  Did you know I eat my breakfast on her bed?  Yep, I do because Saku is a piggy and if we didn't stay separated I'd never get to eat it.

Once I've had my fill, I curl up in the warm spot where mom bean was sleeping and have my first nap of the day.  No way am I going to let her come back and have a bit more sleep!  Nope, that's my spot now!

I'm keeping my eye on things from right here (sorry about the finger, she was trying to pet me at the same time!)  

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

Cozy kitty

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today!

Our mom bean has been busy lately but I've been able to pin her down for some cuddles while she has her morning coffee.  

I know she really likes it, even though I sometimes use my claws to let her know she's slacking off on the petting.  Hey, sometimes she needs a reminder!

When I'm not cuddling with mom, or napping on the bed, and if the sun is out, the mom bean is opening up the sunny room for us.

Appawently it wasn't quite warm enough for me the other day.  I'm snuggled under the towel.  I don't know why the mom bean laffed at me - I think I was being furry smart.

It's a cool day here today with no sun so I guess mom's lap will be the place to be.  Have a great day efurrybody!

A message from the mom bean - to all the kitty and woofie pawrents out there - take care and stay well!

Another visitor

Hi efurrybody, we had a visitor today!  Sasha and I (Saku) were out in the sunny room enjoying the warm sun when mom bean came out to check on us.  NO, she wasn't the visitor!  It was Squirrel!!

The mom bean has been putting out seeds on the top of the bird feeder so more birds can eat.

 Squirrel spotted her through the window!
 He took a last few nibbles and then....
Away he went!  Goodbye squirrel!!   See you tomorrow.

Happy Caturday efurrybody!

A visit from the other S kitties!

Hi efurrybody, it's Stanley here today.  I live with the sticky bean with my brofur Sheldon.
Yep, I'm sitting on the table.  Sometimes I try to get away from the sticky bean...though he's a darn good climber!
Here's Sheldon too...I think he heard the sticky bean coming.  MOL!
I heard the birdies talking outside the window so I got up on the cupboard to see what they were doing.  
One more photo of Sheldon too.  He likes the sticky bean's new bed.  I think it's cuz the sticky bean would rather sleep with his mom, so Sheldon gets it to himself...unless the G'ma bean is sleeping in it.  Then he shares.

Have a great day efurrybody!
