I wanted to post these this morning, but I've been too worried about Czarina. But they were so cute and I wanted to let you all see them.

I couldn't believe this one. Maks is always trying to be bossy with Oksana. Last night he was being a real pain, LOL, but after she hissed at him he froze and ran the other way. But later on, I got this picture. At first I thought "Uh oh!" But no, they sat happily together.

Here's Vlad and little Kiska. I took this one this morning before I left for work. I thought it looked so cute.

Ugh, the moron who lived there before me put duct tape on the window during the year we had a few hurricanes. I've been looking for something to melt the stuff off because I've tried scraping with a razor blade, but it's not working.

There are several things you can try

Sweet Orange Essential oil - in this form it's pretty potent and should work well in conjunction with a razor blade. Plus it smells good and will make you feel alert.

Rubbing alcohol, WD40, Windex, nail polish remover, vinegar - with razor blade or credit card edge.

A product called Goo Gone sometimes works too.

I have to say the weather has been very nice. But, you don't want to live here with the humidity is in town.

I'll look for that essential oil and the goo gone. I can probably find the Goo Gone at Home Depot.

What cute pictures! That one of Vlad and Kiska is a classic! She looks so teeny compared to her big brother! :lovestruck:

I've used Rubbing Alcohol, Goo Gone, etc. NOTHING beats TKO. It's an orange cleaner. I couldn't live w/o it. When I worked retail we used it all the time to remove the tape from walls, windows.

I usually buy it in my local health food store but other stores like Canadian Tire and I think Wal-Mart carry it, too.

I'm going to see if they have it at the health food store near where I live. I need to get that gunk off the window. It's obstructing the view.

Chico, yes she's missing. Miguel needed to get something from his car this morning and she bolted out the door. She's been missing all day. I told him to call me tonight after he went out looking for her. I just hope he has some good news when I see him in the morning.

Hi:

Some time ago I accidentally sprayed deck spray on the glass in my storm window. Nothing I tried would remove it including GooGone. We had purchased a product called "Greased Lightning" from the Family Dollar Store in Maine so I decided to try it because it is a fantastic product. It totally removed the gummy deposit without any effort. I think the bottle cost us about 3.00.

If you can get your hands on this product, you will wonder how you lived without it.

Another thing I'll look for. Thanks for the suggestion. I want to get that stuff off, but I don't want my arm to fall off in the process!

Wonderful pics. You can really see the size difference between them in the second one. I can't get mine to stay beside each other long enough to get a shot like that. :frustrated:

So cute how they're in opposite pairs from when you got them :laughing:

Love how Kiska & Vlad both have their tails hanging off the edge kinda like opposing mirror images

great pics :thumbs up

ancientgirl

Clm, the size difference between Vlad and Kiska is the most visible. Oksana and Maks are pretty equal in height, but Kiska is proving, so far, to be the smallest of the bunch.

What I really need now is to get a picture of Vlad and Oksana together. I want to make up some cards for them for their upcoming birthdays and I'd love to get a picture of them side by side. But THAT might not be as easy as it sounds.

Growler, Kiska loves hanging out with everybody. She'd really quite a social little girl. But she especially likes to hang with Vlad, and unfortunately, he's teaching her some of his bad habits:frustrated:

Hey, thanks! I think I'm going to do that!

I think you should definitely do that. Why don't you send them to Carlton Cards, American Greeting Cards and others as well. The worst they can say is "no thanks" or "we don't accept private photos". No harm in trying. Who knows, maybe they'll be the next Garfield's!! :D

You could also send them to: The Postcard Factory which is located in Markham, Ontario. I know they have a website as well. And, also to Travelpic Publications which are located at 30 Paisley Street, London, Ontario. Lots of people love and ASK FOR pet photos on their postcards. I know this for a fact because I'm a postcard collector and have over 1,000 postcards. I also belong to a postcard trading website!

Just giving you some ideas!

Please be sure to let me know, okay?

Cheers :crazy:

Maybe we should all get together and make a Pets.ca calendar!

:sorry: that Carlton Cards was so rude to you! What did they say, or should I ask? They don't deserve a photo of your beauties!!

Is Hallmark interested at all?

Your idea of making our own pet calendar is fantastic!! I'll help, for sure if you want to do it. :D

I also have profiles for all of them on Catster.com, which is a fun way of having them meet other kitties. Kiska and Maks already have their Valentines! LOL.
