Armadillo Playing With Toys!

Who knew armadillos liked to play?! This is so adorable.

Rollie, a southern three-banded armadillo, just loves to play and roll around with his cute pink toy. He even backs off and then sneakily goes to attack it again, just a like a cat would!

Happy 15th Birthday, Pimp!

Today is Pimp's 15th birthday! And just like they do every year, the whole nation is celebrating!

I can't believe Baby Pimp is 15 years old. He has been with me for just about half my life! I'm 34 and he's 15 -- he's definitely been part of my entire adult life, and I can't think of a better companion! Pimp is the best.

It's my birthday. Everyone get happy!
To celebrate today, Pimp is going to have a great day! He started out with a yummy breakfast (which Phantom and Moo let him eat in peace, good boys!) and then settled in for a little bit of a morning siesta. He'll play some with his favorite mice, have some lunch, another nap or three, dinner, and of course, TONS of cuddles and love from me!

This birthday is made even better because I just took him to the vet to get checked out last weekend. He is very thin (I lovingly call him my little bag of bones) and so I wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. He has hyperthyroid, you know, so that contributes to his scrawniness, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't another underlying issue. He is all of 8 pounds!

We did a full workup -- bloodwork, urinalysis and tested for his T4 levels (that's they hyperthyroid count that would say if it's high and not under control).

And guess what? Pimp is just about as healthy as a kitty can be! He passed all his tests!

I'm a healthy old man!
His bloodwork came back perfect. No kidney issues or anything else. His urinalysis was fabulous. And his T4 levels are at 4.1. The line for being "high" is 4.0, so he's just a wee bit over that, but that is actually great! We were worried that would be a lot higher and the cause of his skinniness, but nope! He's all under control.

So I'm just going to keep an eye on him and weigh him all the time to make sure he doesn't lose more weight. Basically, this is just happy weight right now, the vet thinks, but we're going to make sure by weighing him often.

I get on my digital scale first, then grab him and weigh myself with him. The number we got was exactly what he weighed at the vet, so I know it's accurate. Hurray!

So good news all around on this great day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIMP!

Three Cats Thursday: Pimp's #Selfie and Moo and Phantom's Cute Snuggle

Happy Three Cats Thursday, Cuteheads! Whew, it seems like it's been forever since we've done one of these, doesn't it? So let's get to it!

Today Pimp got with the trend and let me take a selfie with him, and Moo and Phantom want to show you how in love with each other they are. They are BFF for real!

We'll get to those lovebirds in a minute, but first, let Pimp take a selfie!

Moooommmmm! I'm not so sure about this selfie stuff...
Don't you just love his face. He takes his pictures so serious. And he's always so expressive!

Psst... Don't tell him I told you, but Pimp is going to be 15 years old next Friday on the 4th of July! Fifteen years young, I mean. :)

Now let's get on to the crazy whippersnappers.

Moo and Phantom love love love each other. I think one of the best things ever for Moo was us deciding to keep Phantom because now he has a play buddy and a friend who likes to be licked and loved, and does the same back. Pimp wants nothing to do with any of that shenanigans.

These two are always sleeping or cuddled close like this. Not curled up in a ball together, but just touching.

We are all tangled up in love!
Hope everyone has a great day!

Cat Welcomes Soldier Home

You've seen all the dog welcoming soldier home videos... but what about the cats? Kitties get just as excited when their soldier daddies and mommies come home!

Like Finn the ragdoll cat -- he just knows his dad is about to walk through that door any minute... and gives him a great welcome hug when he does!


Thanks to Cutehead Nicole L. for sending in this cute cat welcomes soldier home video!

Cutest Baby Lamb Choir Ever

All together now... "Maaaaaa!"

These baby lambs are actually very talented. They are singing in perfect harmony AND in rounds!

(I just Googled that, by the way. I knew what it was, but not what it was called, so we all can learn something here: Singing in rounds is when one part of the choir starts, and then the other chimes in with the same thing, just at a different time.)

I dare you not to smile.


P.S. Remember when I got to cuddle a baby lamb? Cutest thing ever! I wish I could cuddle all of these little guys.

Thanks to Cutehead Christy for sharing this cute singing baby lambs video with us!
