I haven’t cooked a thing in quite awhile. Nor made anything of significance. I’ve been awfully sick. That “I can’t get off the couch or do anything at all” kind of sick.

Luckily I’m feeling better, but not quite better enough to make something to share.


Instead, I’m going to make it up to you by sharing my cats. Because, well, they make me happy and forget about what ails me. And they’re damn cute. Also, since I changed the layout on Cute and Delicious they aren’t up on the header anymore and I think they deserve an appearance.

Mochi and Meeme

This is Mochi (the grey fluffy one) and Meeme (the white and stripey one) on the day we brought them home from the animal shelter.

I just want to say that if anyone ever tries to tell you that there is something wrong with shelter animals they are insane. These darlings are just precious and actually more affectionate, well behaved and friendly than many cats out there. Not to mention that adopting from the shelter was insanely easy and SAVES A LIFE (or two). In other words, I recommend it.

I poured over the LA animal services website for weeks in anticipation of getting these little critters. Ultimately we just went to the shelter and met a few of the cats. It wasn’t easy going into a room full of sweet cats that needed homes and choosing who to take home. We knew we wanted to get two though, so they would always have company. When we found out Meeme & Mochi were sisters, we knew they were the ones.

They are my little babies. Even when they drive me bonkers I just adore them. Meeme, likes to knock stuffed animals onto our heads around 5 or 6 am so I will get up and feed her. She’s a little bit of a crybaby and will sometimes follow me around meowing. Mochi likes to run around our apartment at lightning speed demolishing whatever gets in her path, including, on many occasion, me.Β  She’s also amazing at sitting down in exactly the spot that will block the entire screen if you are watching a movie, usually right in front of your face.

But even those things that might irritate some people I find endearing. Not to mention the other adorable things they do. They both love to play fetch, especially with aluminum foil balls (or yarn pom poms in Meeme’s case). They love to snuggle on top of our china cabinet, or in their scratch lounge. They are the sweetest, snuggliest cats and I just love them. I love that they both have completely different personalities. I love that they’re always waiting at the door when I come home. I love that I can just scoop them up and give them a hug always.

My little girls are all grown up! Ok, thanks for letting me be the crazy cat lady for a little bit. I’ll be back with some treats soon.

    That little kitty picture is killing me, they were so tiny! Mochi’s eyes were almost too big for her adorable head, she looks straight out of an anime πŸ™‚

    I love this post!!! Mochi and Meeme are so adorable, and you’re right about shelter animals. Even though our dog has some issues, we love him so much and he’s so sweet. I hope you feel better soon – being sick is the worst!

    You can be the crazy cat lady anytime you like, I love seeing pics of other people’s cats! Mochi & Meeme are both gorgeous and I love your description of their personalities and favourite activities. I love my two because while being similar they have such different personalities and they’re both there when I get home and they love cuddle-time!

    I have such a hard time going into shelters because I know I will want to take them all home. I think rescuing is the only way to go. Both Morn have some major horror stories, but they are also extremely affectionate and loving. Morn sits on Tom’s lap every single day for a few hours at least, and both cats sleep with us at night. I can’t say enough about rescued animals (or about how important it is for a cat to have a friend!), I’m so happy you posted this. =)

    Ah! They are so cute! My roommate just adopted a kitty from a local shelter and I can’t wait for him to be ready to pick up!

    omigod I wanna squeeze kitties so much!!! Have to get my stuff done so I can have a kitty, or a bunny, or a kitty AND a bunny!!! Do you veg your cats? If yes, how?
    No veg supplements round here =(
    If you got flu, try eating plain passion fruit before anithing else, and by night, mushroom soup (it’s the veg version of the anti-flu soup, very yummy). Or, even better, a creamy yamushroom soup with some pepper, onions and paprika. And pumpkin =).

    Cute cat pictures πŸ™‚ We recently got a cat, from a friend as they wanted rid. I’m hoping she starts liking vet visits, as she makes me feel very guilty after her injections! lol πŸ™‚

    being sick is the worst!! I’m glad you got some kitties; and extra glad that they came from a shelter! I hope you’re absolutely enamored with the cats and that they brighten your life every single day.

    I just want to say how much I love this post. I have two shelter cats and can’t believe anyone giving up either cat – they’re so fun and loving and sweet! Anyway, I’m always game to hear more about Mochi and Meeme (with photos, of course!).

    Beyond cute. So cute, I think they’re bending the fabric of space-time.
