Mix Bag Friday

Mix Bag Friday

First of we received some great awards this week.

Our dear sweet friend, Siena gave us these two awards.

Thank you so much you sweet little lady!!!!

Then our other lovely friend, Ariel gave us this pretty award. Thank you so much!

This one came with some rules:

This lovely award is created by Crystal @ Memoirs of a Mommy in honor of Noah and the donor of his sweet little heart who ENCOURAGES us to SHARE THE LOVE! The rules for this award are to pass it along to some people whose blogs you love. They make you laugh, smile, leave encouraging comments on your blog. You would like to share some love with them because they have uplifted, inspired, encouraged or prayed for you. Please include this paragraph with the link to Memoirs of a Mommy so that everyone knows where this award originated from.

We will pass this one to some of our newest friends.

Siena ~ Right back at ya!!! ;)
Fui and Suey ~ You two are always so sweet!
Vampy Victor ~ You and your mama are so crazy!! You make us laugh all the time!!

The news here with Banshee is slow and steady.  We are now on face to face meetings. She is allowed out of the playroom when I am outside.  Before, the PM would put Shade in another room but when she was in a dead sleep, she'd just leave her. Twice, Shade woke up and saw Banshee.  I think she must have thought she was having a dream, or nightmare, as she just stared, frozen to the spot. Here's a shot of one of those moments.  I had a talk with her and explained how this all works and she is now hissing and growling.

Banshee is also coming out when I am inside and calm. I am doing pretty good with her overall. She seems to be at the "I wanna play" stage where I am at the "let me observe you from five feet away" stage.  I'll hiss is she approaches me, makes any sound, tries to walk around me, tries to smell me or looks me straight in the eyeballs.  Other than that; it's all good.

We are also wondering if anycats want to do a Christmas card exchange with us? We have signed up to exchange with some of our furriends already but we thought we would put an invite here for our friends. If you would like to, please send us your mailing address to danica_130 AT yahoo dot com. We will add you to our list and send you our addy too.  How exciting!!!!!!!!

We are glad things are coming along with Banshee. Shade is probably wondering where she suddenly appeared from when she woke up.

Congratulations on your awards!

It looks like you are still in the adjustment period at home with Banshee. I hope it gets better soon.

Congrats on your awards! They're well deserved!

And it sounds like all of you are adjusting well to having Banshee in the house...mom says to just take it slow and easy and you all should be fine.

(What is she talking about?? Zoey's been here for 6 months and we still don't get along! But we're working on it. ~Wally)

Cat with a Garden said...

Congratulations on your awards! And thank you for sharing the love with me... I read your todays post with special interest. There's something strange going on at my place and that reminded me of when your PM was behaving strangely. My mom was looking at cats in the innernets too!
I wonder what she's up to and sort of can't wait to get home...
Purrs, Siena

Tesla and Hansel said...

Banshee is quite a nice looking girl. :) She is a mix of both goldie & Shade. :)

Luna und Luzie said...

Congrats to all your awards.

We are glad to read that Banshee is getting out.
She is a beautiful cat.
Here it is sometimes better with hissing and sometimes they hiss all the time with Olli. Maybe our cats are too old and have no opinions to play all the time with little Olli.
love your napping place on the windowsill.
