Putting for Purrs - for Felines, Inc.

Last night, Steve and I attended a fund raising event to benefit Felines, Inc.. Felines Inc. is a licensed cageless, no-kill cat shelter located on the north side of Chicago. We met wonderful Abby Smith, the Executive Director at Felines, who organized this really fun event. Despite the torrential rain storms, quite a few fellow feline friends were in attendance and ready to Putt for Purrs!
Cool glow in the dark putting green!

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), Felines Inc. is funded almost entirely through membership, adoption fees, fundraising events, and the generous tax-deductible donations of caring individuals. They do not receive any federal or state funding.

A great time for a great cause. We will definitely be attending more benefits for Felines, Inc.

p.s. Steve beat me in golf, but I whooped him in air hockey.

*Sigh!* The last FKM post.....

Our last night....

Is it true that mom and dad are coming home? I can't wait!

I hope so, then I can tell them how naughty you were when they were gone!

Naughty? Just because I drank out of the sink?

They won't be mad at me. I'm too cute to be scolded!

Oh and each kitty had a special message for MAGGIE!!

Mousey says: Hi Maggie! I send you lots of love and hisses!

Froggy says: Hi Maggie! Aren't I cute? I'm also a good singer!

And Kismet says.....Kismet? Now where did he go?
Mousey, have you seen Kismet?

Ah-ha! Kismet, there you are! Of course I'd find you in here!
Gulp gulp gulp slurp gulp

Oh, hi Maggie! It's me, Kismet! I hope you come to visit soon! Bring some meat snacks. I like meat snacks. Mmmm..meat snacks.

Well kitties, it was truly a pleasure watching you the last few days! I hope to see you again very soon!

Hiss Miss

Well, Valentine's day is OVER, folks.

Mousey was not in a good mood tonight, and it appeared the boys just annoyed her even further. After a delicious dinner of "tender beef", she gave a few hisses and ran and hid for a while. I think it was best she was alone. Kismet plopped down and relaxed on the rug, while Froggy enjoyed a sprightly game of "catch the string!"

how adorable is he?

All was going swimmingly.....until....

*insert JAWS soundtrack here*

*Gasp!* Oh no...where'd she go?

Kismet was the brave one to go investigate.
The stare down

The "dont mess with me" ears are on...


Oh, I was this interesting floor board...

Ok, I'm done sniffing the floor...just going to go over here de da de da

But wait! The string landed in the waste basket and made a really cool rustling sound! Mousey must investigate....

Mousey was so enthralled, she even let Kismet join her in the search.

What ever it was went behind here....

This game kept Mousey entertained for quite a while....that is until the boys got a little too close...

Aww, Mouse. Hopefully we'll be in a better mood tomorrow?

Feel the Love with Kismet, Froggy and Mousey

There was definitely love in the air this Valentine's evening!!

First things first though...

Best time of the day...DINNER TIME!

Mousing dining on "Lamb and Rice"

Kismet chowing - I don't even think he was taking time to breathe!

After a delicious meal, we all retired to the couch.

Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Mousey!!
Mousey kisses

Froggy joined us on "his side" of the couch. Apparently he had a hot date tonight, as he began rigorously grooming and primping.

Right down to his little toes

I'm ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille

Kismet was nearby, but wasn't joining us on the couch. Every once in a while, he'd look over at the purring Froggy and Mousey who were getting massages and lounging on their pillows.
Kismet peering around the corner

But Kismet is no wimpy boy that needs to be coddled like a baby.
"Too Cool for School" Kismet

Or is he? I have to come over and get you?
Kismet sprawled out on the floor

Will Kismet join the rest of us?

He certainly did!

Boys on the side

I love the Bunny paws!

Happy Valentine's Day from Kismet, Frog and Meep!
