Potluck Friday #3....

It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens.
Cynthia E. Varndo: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Loving our Cats.

What an appropriate quote for today's pictures.
Mom here: Today my pot runneth over with Joy!!!
I cannot tell you all how happy I was to find these three pictures of Madi and her sister Lucy. All three were taken on May 11, 2002, the day Madi's Dad and I adopted Madi and my brother-in-law adopted Lucy. We took both kitties to both our homes so they could play a little bit more before separating them. These are the only three pictures of Madi and Lucy together in the World...
Madi is on the left.
Madi and Lucy conquered the steps at our house in about 2 seconds...again Madi on the left.
Lucy had just a touch of gray in her fur but most of it was muted with hints of orange.

In this last picture, they are playing at Lucy's house. Our hope was to be able to take Madi or Lucy to the other's home when we were away.
This was the last picture of them playing 'nice'. Three weeks after this picture was taken, my brother-in-law brought Lucy to our house supposedly to stay for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, they did not remember each other. Madi became very territorial, first hint of her Divaness. I expect Lucy was a bit frightened by her new surroundings. Within about 20 minutes I was packing Lucy up to take her home. For the next 2 weeks I went to Lucy's house every day to take care of her.
Madi and Mom
Andy of Sammy and Andy Meowsville is celebrating his 10th birthday today.
Happy B-day Dear Andy

Note from grown up Madi: I'll be partying like a wildcat at all girl's party tonight. Check out
Mayzie and Puddles for details.


  1. Hi Madi and Mom,
    Can't believe we are first here!Happy Friday 13th to you both.
    Now Madi weren't you just the cutest little kitten - you looked very sweet with your sister.
    How sad that once seperated you then didn't want to play - still it can be hard sharing your humans.
    It is your house after all................!
    Happy Birthday to Andy.

  2. Adorable photos of beautiful sisters...Too bad they are no longer close; maybe they just had a bad day, have you ever tried to get them together again?...Happy Friday, sweet Madi...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  3. Oh my goodness Madi, you were the most adorable kitten. In the first photo that looks like one of those things that you find the right shaped block and put it through the right hole, looks like you were studying it very carefully Madi. You were smart even as a tiny kitten.

    You and Lucy are so cute playing together, too bad you didn't get along later.

    Happy B day to Andy!

    Purrs & Hugs,
    Cindi Lou and J

  10. They are so cute as babies. Of course the Diva is BEAUTIFUL now!

  11. Hi Madi!
    We've been not commenting this week cuz Mommy is mean and spent time with Daddy...his birffday and alla that.
    So we missed your big store opening (MOL!) and the photos of you and your sisfur Lucy! Mommy went "SQUEEE!!!" of the picture of you two on the stairs. Do you have any photos of Lucy all grown up?

  12. I think it takes a strong person to be owned by a cat. You do an excellent job.

  13. Awwww...teeny tiny little Madi pictures with her teeny tiny little sister. Madi, what in the world did Lucy say to you to make you so mad? Cuz I'm sure it's all HER fault.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  16. Very cute picshurs, we is sorry you two not remembers each other, but glad you both got wonderful furever homes! Have fun at the party tonight Madi!

  17. Hi Madi and Mom,
    Oh you were the cutest little kitten I ever saw, Madi!!!!!
    Animals are like that. Once they are seperated they are in competition with each other for food, attention, and everything they need.
    Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos with us.
    XXOO, Happy & Fern

  18. Awww, that is sad that they didn't get along. I wonder why it happened so quickly?

    Jack has met some of his siblings. He was just excited because it was more dogs to play with! :)

  19. Hi Madi! You and Lucy together are so cute!

    And we are not surprised that after a few weeks they didn't recognize each other - we had Gus and Stella see their brother and sister Louise and Cosmo at the vets office (their mom is the vet nurse) only a week after they moved in and they were hissing at each other and growling.

  20. Great post! Love the pics! Be good tonight and if you get in trouble give me a call and I post your bail....

  21. squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
    Oh you two were adorable together it's a shame you both forget each other. But those pictures are priceless!

    Well Madi be Good (hehehehe) tonight and have lots of fun.


  22. Aw, what sweet pictures of Madi and Lucy! We're sorry it didn't work out between the two of them. But that happens cats are funny that way...

    Madi, don't party too don't want to wake up with a headache.

  23. Madi and Lucy's kitty pictures are adorable!
    Sorry they could not get along well after they were separated!
    Happy Friday
    Kisses and hugs

  24. Madi
    You and Lucy were so cute together. Who knew that you wouldnt remember her. And yes, you ARE the Diva!!!


  25. Oh my goodness! Look how little they were!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
