Hangin' in the bedroom in the morning is THE BEST - when the sun is shining, it fills this room up with cozy, warm light. Sometimes, if we're especially good kitties, Deer will turn on her electric blanket for an added dose of cuddliness. Even better are Sunday mornings 'cause Macks and Deer get to share in some serious lounging and Macks will often konk out with us for a few hours' nap. We waste no time crawling right on top of him to cuddle him with a vengeance! Ah...it sure is good to be a cat!
On days like today, we'll even forgive Deer for giving us our weekly manicure. She's pretty sneaky about it, clipping while we are getting sleepy. Maddie didn't even open her eyes once during the whole process:
Now, you'll have to stay tuned for a very special post from us in the next day or two! We've been practicing very hard for something very special...

Deer almost...repeat almost disturbed my beauty sleep with that darned flash! I opened my eyes just a sliver to make sure she was going away, and back to sleeping I went.

When it comes out of the living room closet, we make a hasty retreat to the bedroom closet...and, even if the sliding doors are closed, we have used our superior mental abilities to figure out how to open them in such dire moments.
We also believe that the Hair Dryer and Coffee Maker are somehow related to The Dragon. However, they are not nearly as loud nor as scary as The Dragon and we've determined that they are harmless enough - despite the noise they make - to stay out from underneath furniture and in closets while they are out. The Dragon, on the other hand, is an entirely different beastie altogether and WE HATE IT!
When Deer finishes taking it for its weekly walk, we are both tremendously relieved. Washie even found it in his heart to forgive her entirely and curl up on her lap afterwards. After all, it is snowing again outside and we certainly have our priorities...cuddling being right there on top of the list!

We've got a little double-decker action going on here on what might look like some sort of blanket. Actually, it is Macks' lap! He was reading one of those huge books that you sent him for his birthday, but we called dibs on lap space.
Washie was in his position first and Maddie was hanging in her cat cave right near by. She got a little jealous of the extra coziness so she carved out a space all for herself. Where there's a will, there's a way!
Oh, by the way, Deer wanted us to show you her latest completed project - what you all thought was a hot water bottle covered turned out to be mittens! As soon as she took this picture, we had to go sit on them. We LOVE sitting on the stuff she makes with that goofy string! But, then again, we are pretty goofy, too.
Hope you both are having as cuddly a Sunday as we are!
Hugs & kisses,
Washie and Maddie

It's Camp Shorewood's first winter storm of the season! It started out innocently enough this afternoon:
But then the wind picked up and all of a sudden, we had lots of snow coming down!
It's been snowing and blowing all afternoon, so Maddie thought it best to stay tuned to The Weather Channel, before retreating to makeshift "cat cave" next to a baseboard heater in the bedroom!
"Yeah, that's right, I'm sleeping in a paper bag. Wanna make something of it?"
Washie is perfectly content to cuddle on a blanket in the spare room (Washie: "This is what normal cats do, Madison!")
We hope you are cuddly and warm, too!
Hugs & kisses,
Washie and Maddie

There's no denying we are two seriously beautiful cats!
"Napping in the sun cannot and should not be overrated."

1. Spats: I guess this has something to do with my lovely paw coloration?
2. Snidely Whiplash: do I really have a mustache like his?
3. Pickles: you got me on this one. This is a favorite of Deer's
4. Squigglebutt: I can't help it...I get excited and the butt moves that way.
5. Wack-a-mo: When I play, I play hard...so sue me!
In other news, I've learned that The Other Beastie (aka Brother Man) has escaped his protective lair and has changed locations to someplace called Seattle. I am currently plotting to break out of this joint and track him down. I may seem all sweet and silly, but there's a villain underneath all this fur. Hmmmm....perhaps Snidely Whiplash is a good name for me? I'll add it to my list of aliases as I plot my next move...

Because we are so gosh darn cute, we thought we'd send you the best present ever...that would be pictures of us, of course!
Here we are snuggling up to The Lady as she sat in the living room with her feet up on the ottoman:
Madison thinks that Washie needs a wash up!
You know, of course, that means only a prelude to WrestleMania 2007!
But, remembering that it is your birthday, we thought we should be on our best behavior. Back to just plain ol' bathtime...which lead right into some serious naptime:
Washington sort of lost track of where he was and slipped right down in between the ottoman and the chair, but he insists that he meant to do that!
Macks and Deer went out early this morning for a very chilly (only 28 degrees!) hike through Camp Shorewood. Deer was sooooo excited about having a White Thanksgiving that she wanted us to share some of her pictures with you:
Snow and Halloween decorations?!
The snow on these burgundy leaves was breathtaking. Too bad Deer's big wooly mittens prevented her from taking a picture that was actually in focus!
Happy Birthday...we miss and love you very much!

We are going to love playing and cuddling in this huge box. Thanks!
Humans can be so odd, though. Macks showed very little interest in The Box and seem to think the really good stuff was inside it! He's a little mixed up, we think. We're not sure exactly what holds his interest in these books, but he sure does love them! Hmmmm...let's see about rubbing our chins on the corners...yes! that must be it!
Maddie is still trying to figure out the whole bathroom thing. Perhaps if she stares long enough, she can will this crazy thing to work with her superior mental abilities. (Maddie: By the way, I think Washie is a bit pervy! He especially likes to keep Macks company while he takes a shower, but today he decided he'd like to take a peek at Deer while she was all nekkid! I'm tellin'!!!)
Yes, humans are peculiar, as is Deer's utter fascination with the cuteness of our pawz. Maddie's, she thinks, look like whipped cream.
With his, Washie is showing his tail who's the boss!
Maddie says: "Ok, Macks, I'll give you a pass on the office chair this time, but - in the future, just remember - I was here first!"

Well, it was a good thing Deer grabbed her work camera again last night or else she would have missed documenting the ultimate, super-duper, high-voltage Cuddlefest 2007 early this morning. It started out innocently enough - Washie was snoozing on Deer, and as they were leaving to go to all sweaty and stinky early this morning, Maddie decided to take her place. We may have our sibling rivalries, but we do give each other one mighty fine cuddle and bath!
