Cuddles with Momma and Poppa

So we've mentioned our love of cuddling~ some of which comes by pretending we're parrots (hanging out on shoulders) and in Poppa's pockets. These pictures are from the night before the weekend they spent away from us. They were too busy cuddling with us to take pictures of it yesterday afternoon when they returned!

Enjoy the photos!

Hooray for New Blog Friends!

So our Momma and Suki Sumo's Mommy are pretty darn good pals (though we haven't gotten to meet her yet). . . Suki's Mommy kinda had to talk her into helping us get to know others and we're so glad she did!!

Already today while Momma was at work we had some visitors. Momma helped learn more about Clover, Ruby Bleu, and Nevis. We're so excited to get to know you and become inter-species friends!

Thanks for visiting!

Penny Joins the Family

Thelma here again! Penny will be taking over in a bit but I thought I'd start out the story of Momma's birthday yesterday!

June 21st rolled around and Momma turned 27! After the excitement of some birthday presents Momma and Poppa started talking about going to pick up one of my sisters to come live with us in Minneapolis. They talked to me and I promised not to be jealous but rather excited instead!! I wanted to go along but I can get a little fiesty so they decided to leave me at home while they drove North.

Penny taking over! :)

Momma and Poppa came in and I was a little shy but very calm. When Poppa got his hands on me I scurried up to his shoulders and hung out there(the people watching me remembered him picking up Thelma!). Momma picked me up from his shoulder, gave me a little cuddle, and then it was back home with them to see Thelma again and join the family.

Here is a picture from the ride home:

Momma and Poppa let Thelma and I reconnect and hang out in the bathtub for a while. That was sure crazy times! (Thelma was chasing me! It was fun!!)

Then Momma let me into my new home to explore for a little while. It worked out well because I had a little alone time before Thelma and I played again.

As you can see, I'm still not so sure about peas. Thelma on the other hand comes running any time Momma has some in her hands.

Anyways, then Thelma joined me and we curled up together. It's fun being here with Momma, Poppa, and my sister!

A Littly Grumpy at Momma....

Thelma here! I did something today when I was a little grumpy that made Momma grumpy too.
Poppa bought me some fun toys and treats yesterday that I finally got to see today. One of the things he picked up was a running ball. I just wanted to cuddle and Momma wanted to have me try it out. I got a bit grumpy because it seemed a bit scarry to me. I was really nervous of it at first so I cuddled far into her lap... and kinda peed a little.

That made Momma grumpy at me. . . but she still gave me some almonds when she put me back in my home!!

Thelma Joins the Family

Momma and Poppa had been talking for some time about adopting someone special like me to join the family... as my luck has it, I got to join the family on June 16th, 2008 :).

It was a crazy evening. I was a complete suprise to Momma and I know she fell in love with me the second she saw me. I was really nervous to meet her though so I decided to try to hide for a bit. It took me only a little while to feel at home. On my big day joining the family I had treats and a few toys to play with in my new home AND a little house to hide out in that I can munch on too! I also got to spend a lot of time on Momma's lap and cuddling. Poppa seemed unsure of how to act with me right away but I won him over pretty quickly too.

Here are some pictures:

Snackin on some peas

Hanging out and sniffin' around on Momma's lap:

This picture below is of me peeking out of the cool house I was talking about! Should I decide to have a little nibble, it won't even make me feel sick to my belly!
