Twilight, taking in the day. Relaxed that her subscription was renewed.
Hi, It’s Twilight.
I wanted to give a kiss, a lick, and a hug to Candice Glover for winning the American Idol!
I can completely relate to her hit single, “I am Beautiful”! We have so much in common; sweet, beautiful, and amazing eyes. Oh, my voice? It’s more of a high pitch soft baby-like mew, Candice’s voice is Purrfectly beautiful!
My Mommy calls it Creature Status!
Have a great weekend everyone! Off for some beauty sleep.
Kisses – Twilight
Think Summer Fun!
Summer is here packed with Sunshine, long days, picnic foods and a more carefree spirit. I have to believe my cats feel the same way, lounging for hours on the warm screened in porch, then in the luxury of their air-conditioned home and napping the day away. Grace and Twilight are always ready for a treat as the rustling of the bag calls them into the kitchen, a long drink of cool water from the fridge is up next, and a quick round of play. Then of course, the squirrel watching, it must be like watching TV, so the monitor look of June’s cover reflects.
Best wishes to you and yours for a long cool playful summer!

Contently curled on the cashmere throw as if it were an inherited personal heirloom.
Basking in the sun as a bikini clad model would, with the expectation of accolades from passers-by. Sleeping all hours of the day and never lifting a paw, since there is the required staff. Dining on meals with a preference of an attentive audience. The nocturnal one, who finds it convenient to wake you all hours of the night, for a snuggle.
Irreplaceable, is this cat to one’s heart.
Lucky me to have friends and family that have beautiful feline family members, a kitty blog for showcasing them and a genuine love for creature status cats, (this is all-inclusive in the feline animal kingdom by the way). If you know the cat breed, Maine Coons, you know what a treat and loving companion you have. Maine coons are one of the oldest natural American breeds from the state of Maine.
Main Coons are known for several special attributes, below are a few of my favorites.
Let the Birthday celebrations begin!
Happy Birthday #2 beautiful Lani!
Lani and her brothers at one day old above is a seriously beautiful group of kittens! It’s funny that she was the only girl and the only patch! Lani is the biggest love sponge you ever want to meet. She sleeps between her Mommy and Daddy every night and she has to be held in a bear hug to get to sleep….she insists! Her Daddy is especially good at that! She loves everyone and she’s the only one of the cats in this family that has befriended Bella the parrot. If Bella is on the kitchen island Lani is with her…partners in crime, lol!
Pat, her Mommy says, “I always say she was made just for me, she is beyond attentive, and my little helper following me around the house every day as I clean up. She is truly a treasure…I really hit the jackpot!” Lani was born on May 1, 2010.
Happy Birthday #2 beautiful Nayla!
Nayla’s darling baby kitten snuggled in a boot pose, and her current classic pose, showing off her white boots. She was born at the Koontopia Maine Coon Cattery in KY on April 7, 2010.
Nayla is the classic “gentle giant” of Maine Coons. She is quite reserved and has the quietest high pitch meow you ever heard coming out of such a big cat. She is very sweet, and if she catches a lizard, and her sister takes it away she just lets her keep it.
Like most Maine Coons she loves water and can often be found playing in a sink of water or sleeping in the sink. Her play area consists of a large screened in outdoor area. Most days she can be found hunting and sleeping in the bushes by the pool. She is an affectionate little (big) supervisor!
A special thank you to my friend, Pat Bell for sharing your beautiful princesses Lani and Nayla.
Happy Birthday to twins, Ducan MacMouser and Dandy O’Lion celebrating their 2 year Birthday on May 1, 2012.
Duncan MacMouser and Dandy O’Lion we’re born on May 1st, 2010, Koontopia’s Run for the Roses, part of a litter of six classic red tabby boys and one beautiful brown patch girl. They are brothers to Lani above.
Duncan is small for a Maine Coon, weighing only 14 lbs, but don’t tell him he is not a really big boy. He’s our brave heart. Strong natured, outgoing and oh, so sweet. He is very vocal, often all night long. His fur is unusually soft “Like a Bunny”. Duncan loves being brushed and will roll over so you can get every spot. Tummy rubs and fetching paper are his favorites, along with water. He will drink from a faucet and intently watch water swirl. Duncan’s nickname is Little Laddie.
Dandy O’Lion is a shy boy, very loving. He is smart and very stubborn. Once his mind is fixed on something, it is hard to get him to forget about it. He loves opening all the closet doors in the house. Dandy also loves to cuddle with his half-sister, Cougar Rose. In fact, He loves to cuddle period. His favorite toy is his YumYum, a blue furry snake. He carries it with him and hides it in different spots in the house. When he brings it to you, he cries to be praised, for he brought you his prize. His fur has curls and more curls. His nickname is Dandy-Boy.
A special thank you to my Friend, Echelle Sauer for sharing her handsome twin boys; Dunan and Dandy!
Happy Birthday Lani, Nayla, Ducan and Dandy – Two looks great on each of you!
Here kitty kitty…. Got a kitty celebrating a birthday and want me to blog about your special friend. Leave a comment and we will take it from there.
Good afternoon Earth Day 2012!
Grace and Twilight, so thankful to be basking in the sun this morning via Mother Nature, wanted to remind us that Earth Day should be top of mind each day.
A clean healthy world is essential and will exist for future generations of all animals if we do our part today. Be aware and mindful of your carbon footprint.
Grace and Twilight recently found this video of Koko, the Gorilla, who receives a kitten visit. Showing gentle love to our earth, as Koko is showing her gentle love toward this baby kitten, Tiger is a good start towards making a difference in our planet. Love this earth, it’s the only one we have. A good day and a good clean future to you!
Watching from window to window, curiously wondering if this is a new friend or just a passing fancy.
Busy birds, nesting, chirping, eating and flying quickly through.
We try to chat with them, but without success. So, We enjoy the moment under the blue, cloudy or rain filled skies, wondering where their fancy wings take them, Pretty Birds.

Twilight’s look lends itself perfectly to the April cover of living well. We spend several minutes in the morning and in the evening making sure she is tangle and mat free. This warm spring has been particularly challenging as she creates several “mini me’s” with each brushing.
Twilight wanted to say a few words about long hair requirements.
It is so important to allow my Mommy daily grooming time. You see, I sleep so much during the day, rolling around in my bed and grooming as needed. Somehow, I create tangles and mats in my long flowing coat that start to hurt if they aren’t managed on a daily basis.
The good “mews”, I love being brushed and combed. It relaxes me and takes Mommy away from my sister Grace. Grace and I always compete for her time, but I don’t think she knows.
I love staying at home at the spa at Eden Close. 5 Paw rating for the spa and so much more. Any-who, I’m off for nap-time, another lesson we can talk about later.
