Hi Efurrybuddy, Milo repawting!

Alfie and I have decided to enter some Cat-O-Lympic events since we are young fit mancats ~ and exercise is good for yoo.  Also we wanted our own copy of the wonderful medal that Fin at HouseCat Confidential  is giving to all contestants, because it’s PAWSOME!  :

Of course we can’t enter efurry event but we thort we’d try as many as pawsible.

So the obvious place to start was with Huffle Mawson‘s Competitive Napping event ~ our cousin Gorjuss Ginger Gizmo (Gorjuss Ginger Gizzy for short) volunteered to enter on behalf of our fambly.  That boy is an expert at napping!  Notice how he is acshually IN the beans bed and UNDER the sheets.  It doen’t get much more skilled than that, does it?  Go Gizzy Go!

And of course The Island Cats  Synchronized Snoozing was  jointly chosen as an event for us BOTH to enter ~ ‘cos we just LOVE snoozing together:

And Alfie couldn’t resist entering  One Cat’s Nip‘s contest:  Mile Long Kleening Machine!  ‘Cos  that boy likes to keep a clean machine:

I was an immediate contender for Jennifer Lorton‘s Hiding event because I LOVE to hide from Alfie whenever I get the opportunity (then I jump owt on him and frit him!):

And the  Cats In Maryland High Jump Event was a must for me, as my jumping skills are renowned!  The first pic is NOT my entry (as it is photo-shopped by Dad and we don’t think it will be allowed) ~ but the next two pics are genuine!

Here I am in action BELOW (the pics are slightly blurred as I’m a quick mover BUT they are NOT photo-shopped!)

and one more High Jump action shot:

I also went in for Amy and the House of Cats Extreme Climbing event ~ ‘cos I take “extreme” risks on a DAILY basis!

And Alfie decided to enter a video in this event because he is also excellent at Extreme Climbing (he frightens Mom half to def!):

The Furry Bambinos Squirrel and Bird Watching event was a must as bird watching is our favourite past-time! So Alfie entered individually, and then jointly we both entered a video.  Here is evidence of Alfie watching a seagull ~ that boy will sit there for HOURS if there is a birdie to watch!

Hi Efurrybuddy,

Well the BIG day is here!   Today is the start of our Bare Paw Fighting event as part of the Cat-O-Lympics being held by Fin at Housecat Confidential  .  If yoo’d like to enter please read the rules HERE.  Then enter the URL for yoor Bare Paw Fighting entry post in Mr Linky below:


We wanted to join in the fun so we’re showing our own fighting photo BUT we wont be considering ourselves for a medal.  Winners will be selected the weekend of the 20/21 st of February and announced on Monday 22nd February, when medals will be awarded.  (Yoo don’t hafta do any fancy photoshop stuff unless yoo want too ~ good old original photos or videos of a smackdown between siblings or enemies,  are just fine!  OK?)

We hope yoo enjoy our FUN efforts:


The Champ Milo-Smack-’em-Marshall is entering the ring; he seems in good shape to defend his title once again.  Just behind him is Alfie -tuffer-than-I-look-Marshall, another great boxing legend who is the challenger today.  Our esteemed referee, Rocky-Smacker, pauses and acknowledges the applause as the watching crowd go wild (he was a boxer himself in the 1990s and did an awful lot for the sport in his own country).  Some of the audience will have paid  many $ or £ for the privilege of seeing this boy get beaten up.  And there’s the bell.


And a left and a right, and a right jab that’s smacked the Champ’s shoulder. And here’s the  challenger Alfie again with a right and another left and a terrific smack that lands right on the Champ’s body.  The action is swift and fast.  Certainly those who paid their hard earned dollars or pounds for those ringside seats are really getting their money’s worth. 

Milo smacks back!  And with a left, and a right, then a fearsome left jab, he evens up the score.  With every punch he speaks volumes.

One camp says Milo is a great fighter, perhaps the best. The other side argues that he is protected and his success manufactured. That is what makes tonight’s bout with Alfie so intriguing. Milo’s legacy can suffer a huge setback with a loss, but it will achieve even greater heights with a win.  And there’s the bell. 


The crowd  :GASP:   ~   It’s a draw!!!

If yoo’d like to see our entries in the other Cat-O-Lympic events, come back TOMORROW as we have a speshull OLYMPIC  ENTRY post!

Love Milo and Alfie xx

Hi Efurrybuddy,

Last night I tooked my gerfrend Dommy on a HOT date because it was ♥Valentine’s Night♥.  Ferst we stopped off at the Black Cat Cocktail bar and had a couple of “Black Cat” speshull Niptinis, and I gave Dommy a red rose:

Then once we were feeling nicely mellowed, we went on to Le Bistro for dinner. They cook all sorts of fresh and delishus gourmet cat food there, and yoo can eat as much as yoo want! And it’s all served up in a romantic candle lit atmosphere:

 It was a lovely romantic evening ~ thanks for being my Valentine Dommy!


AND we are thrilled to tell yoo that Alfie and I have inspired a noo type of VSquillion!  Gracie repawted on the Cat Blogosphere (on Saturday) that there would be a noo type of VSquillions at the shelter soon:

Coming Soon… A special litter of Memorial Angel Virtual Squillions.  There will be boy-cats and girl-cats to adopt and name in memory of those now at the Bridge.  These were inspired by Milo and Alfie, from a comment they left on the VSquillion Adoption blog!

We are so excited.  We adopted one of the limited edition VSquillons in remembrance of Mom’s beloved Lilac Point Siamese, Henry (1985 ~ 2004)  (see our sidebar) but now we will be able to adopt a speshull Angel VSquillion for each of Mom’s previous 3 cats, hoo went to the Bridge many years ago.  We think other famblies hoo have had cats go to the Bridge will also love honouring their memory in this way. 


Also, TODAY is the fabulous opening ceremony of the CAT-O-LYMPICS at Fin’s bloggie ~ be there or be square!  We are hosting BARE PAW FIGHTING and in case yoo missed our post on Saturday yoo can read abowt it HERE. Yoor entries can be submitted from tomorrow until Friday midnight by linking to our Tuesday 16th February post.

Hi Efurrybuddy,

This is a speshull LOVE post.  We all know that Valentine’s Day is abowt romantic LOVE  ~  BUT today we’d like to send  LOVE to ALL those who need our support and caring, as well as our love.  Yoo might like to start the YouTube playing ferst:

Ferst, we’d like to send some LOVE to a very speshull and much loved dog: MAX.   Max is poorly; he has cancer and he needs our support. And we all know cancer stinks. So if yoo have time today, would you pop over and send Max and his mom some love please?  We can’t make him better BUT we can let him know that we all love him, and understand how brave he is, and send him some healing purrs because he is feeling poorly.  Max we hope yoo can have quality of life for as long as possible ~ and that yoo’ll feel the love we are sending yoo this Valentine’s Day, and every day.

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  

And  we’d like to send LOVE to all  the cats and dogs and other animals in the Werld, and on the Cat Blogosphere who are poorly and need our LOVE.  We’re sorry we can’t name you all individually but we hope you can feel the LOVE!  That includes you Spot and Fiona wiv yoor poorly teef ~ and Parker wiv her poorly pooper!

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

And We’d also like to include any beans hoo are poorly ~ we hope yoo can feel our LOVE too!  We’d espeshully like to send LOVE to Vic, hoo is the daddy at Zoolatry, and Miss Bobbie hoo has a poorly heart.

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

And we’d like to send extra speshull LOVE to Ann at Zoolatry,  because she is so generous wiv her time and skills making wonderful images and headers for us all on the Blogosphere.

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

And we’d like to send LOVE to al the kind hearted folk around the Blogosphere who help homeless cats or dogs, making sure they have food to eat, and shelter, and VET’s treatment when necessary, and find happy forever homes, and even organize neutering etc.  We can’t name yoo all,  but yoo know who yoo are.  We’d espeshully like to mention: Itty Bitty Kitty Committee,   Forever Foster,   Jan’s Funny FarmWhimpers Whimand  SnipPets.  But if we haven’t mentioned your name, and yoo help animals, some of this LOVE is for yoo too.  OK?

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

 And we’d like to send LOVE to all our blogging friends too ~ yes yoo ~ if yoo are reading this we LOVE yoo! OK?

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

And we’d like to remember wiv LOVE ~ all those hoo have gone before ~ espeshully Mom’s  beloved bloo-eyed Lilac Point Siamese Cat, Henry (1985 ~ 2004) and before that Confuscious (grey), Merak and Khamsin (black-panther siblings); Mom has never forgotted them.  And all the beloved cats and dogs from the Blogosphere hoo have gone to the Bridge.  We hope they can all feel our LOVE at the bridge today, and everyday. 

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥ 

And do yoo remember this post we did in January 2010?  When we said:

We’ve been fans of Carrie at SnipPets for some time. Carrie is a very talented artist and animal lover living in Lexington, Kentucky.  She blogs about what she is creating, then selling to help pay for snipping  (rescuing or spaying and neutering) of homeless ferral cats.  We think she puts her artistic skills to a wonderful use ~ so we decided to continue our noo year resolution by supporting her, to support cats and kitties, by ordering a customized snippet for Mom for ♥Valentine’s Day♥! 

Well we gave Mom her SnipPet Valentine Munchkin in memory of Henry ~ and she loves it:

And a back view showing his cute little tail:

And we’d like to remember our Romantic Loves too!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Alfie: I want to send some LOVE too.  I made a speshul card this year ~  because I’m hoping that Lola Fannola will be my Valentine ‘cos I think she is really sweet and very, very beautiful!  If yoo read this Lola ~ will yoo let me know please?

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Love Milo and Alfie Marshall xx
