*yawn* Vlad wakes up from a satisfying nap in his way too small bed.

Maks startled by my dumb neighbors who only know how to slam their door:frustrated:

Oksana and Kiska. You can see here Kiska is slightly smaller than Oksana, and as size goes, if you look from biggest (counting body mass :)) to smallest, it's Vlad, Czari, Maks, Oksana, and Kiska

Czari was on the floor, so I only got 4 here. Oh on a side note, anybody see that blue sheet next to the crock pot? I'm thinking about painting my kitchen that color. Opinions?

Jim, she really does have such a lovely face.

I have cut down the prozac to every other day. I'd thought of stopping totally, but my vet said to do it gradually, so it will be every other day for another few weeks, then every 3 days and then every 4 days Until the prescription runs out.

I love the gang all in the kitchen! :cloud9: (oh and I like the colour it is now... I'm partial to yellow! the blue is pretty too though)

The boys in the basket is just too cute! :lovestruck:

That's a happy looking group of kitties. You got some great shots of them. Boy Czarina has really come a long way hasn't she. She looks like she's right at home now.

Kitties on the counter....thank goodness, I thought I was the only one that didn't mind. In fact, they even join me for dinner at the table. Ha!

krdahmer - I love the basket one too. I like the yellow that's in there now too, but I feel it's sort of blah. I figured maybe the blue would help brighten the cabinets a little and cheer it up a bit.

clm - Czari has settled in nicely. She's learned a lot from observing the others.

BenMax - Yes, keeping them off was impossible. I'd spray them with water, I bought one of those scat things that blow air, I gave up. It's no big deal. As long as they keep off the stove it's okay. I clean the counters with soap and water regularly, and I prepare my food on a surface I keep separated, I use it, wash it and put it away. They like being up there and seeing what I'm doing, and of course, trying to get some of what I'm eating.:D Most of the time they're out of luck, since I don't know if cats can eat tofu, so I don't give them any to try.

AncientGirl - my cats eat from my plate sometimes. Frankly I really don't care (as long as their paws are nice and clean). When I have company they somehow understand that it is not acceptable so they stay away from the table and do not jump on the counter...interesting.

Truthfully, I love my cats and whatever they do is fine with me. If someone objects then THEY can find somewhere else to be entertained. I make no excuses for my cats behaviour - they are who they are..and I love them for that.

Mine have been known to eat ice-cream from my spoon.:D Who cares. Like you said, as long as they keep their little paws off of anything that goes in my mouth, there's no harm. My cats aren't dirty:cat:

Aw, I love how Czari has finally started opening up! Draping herself over Mom! :cloud9:

I didn't realize that Oksana was that small! For some reason, I thought she was about Maks's size and that Maks is way bigger than Kiska :o

They're all beautiful!

I think they'd all look lovely against the blue if you painted the wall that color. :D

Great pics :cloud9:. I especially like the one with Kiska and Oksana side by side and the one of the boys in the laundry basket :laughing:.

It is also very heartwarming to see Czarina so relaxed :lovestruck:.

ancientgirl
November 3rd, 2008, 02:23 PM
Hazel, she really loves cuddling and laying next to me. I'm so happy every time she does that and every time I see her trotting to the kitchen for treats along with the others.:cloud9:

Maks is just slightly bigger than Oksana. Oksana is a little stockier so unless you really look at them next to each other you can't really tell. Kiska though is by far the smallest and most vocal too!:laughing:

I was also thinking of like a Tiffany blue or a Wedgewood blue, that color on the paper is close.

Thanks Teri. I've been trying to get a picture of them next to each other for a while.

Czari still has her moments where she's defensive, but it's understandable. I am very happy to see how far she's come.

Awww AG,they all look great,really pretty you are a wonderful kitty-mom.
Is Czarina fully integrated with the crew now??
She is a little beauty for sure,you should pat yourself on the back for never giving up on her:cat:

I love your pics, ancientgirl. Czarina is doing sooo well, you have done a great job.

Vlad's fur is so incredibly shiny :cloud9:

ancientgirl
November 3rd, 2008, 08:20 PM
Chico, thanks! Yes, she's fully integrated now. She's getting her prozac every other day and spends all day and night with everyone else.:D

L4H, thanks. Vlad's got some skin issue now on top of his heard. :sad: I just posted about it, but I've got to keep him isolated from the others for 2 weeks!

Needless to say he was NOT happy at the vet. She said next time he comes in I'm going to have to give him Xanax or something because he was positively wild.

Oh, and I like your kitchen yellow too. :o

AG,I am sooo happy to hear that,she's one lucky little girl:thumbs up
As far as your blueish paint-color,it's to me a little too bright,but then,you live in Miami.
I think I would go with something a little softer,lots of pastel-colors in Miami,right?

I don't think I have seen all 5 of your cats in one post. Very beautiful! And it looks like they are all so happy with you :lovestruck:
As for the paint colour, were you planning on painting the cabinets and walls that colour? My suggestion would be to leave the cabinets a more neutral colour, and just paint the backsplash (walls) some sort of blue. just my :2cents: !

ancientgirl
November 4th, 2008, 07:45 AM
Frenchy, she really has some a long way. I'm very happy for her.

Rainbow, Maks loves to hang out with Vlad. Even in the smallest of places.:laughing:

Chico, Czari has adjusted very well this time around. The blue I may actually go lighter on. I've never particularly been a fan of blue, but for some reason lately, I'm liking those very light shades of it.

Thank you! I haven't posted pictures of them in a while, so I wanted to get some of all of them.

No, I'm not painting the cabinets, just the back splash. I'm thinking I do want blue, but I need to get more samples, because I have a specific shade in mind but it's one of those "I'll know it when I see it" type things.
