Brawndo – 1/17/2020

We got a new cat and we named him Brawndo. If you’re wondering about the name, it came from my favorite movie, Idiocracy. Brawndo is a pure bred Maine Coon. We were picking him up from a breeder just west of Kansas City. We drove through an ice storm the night before to ensure that we could get him on time.

Enough of the car. We picked him up from Olga at EuroCoons. She was a bit more expensive than other breeders we talked to. When we go to her house, we could see how much she cared for the cats and were not disappointed by paying more for him.

And because the internet is all about cats and the post is about Brawndo, here are some photos of him!

So tiny!

Sonora is incredibly happy!

Corvin likes him too!

It didn’t take long for the two of them to become buddies.

Yep, he is adorable.

We have video of them playing.

Yes, I got Brawndo t-shirts for the family.

Christmas Tree – 12/1/2019

We decided to get a real Christmas tree this year. Our first ever. We picked up Danelle’s dad and headed out to one of his friend’s farm in Washington, MO. It was extremely cold outside and we did get snow flurries while we looked for a tree.

Henry was colder than he wanted to admit.

After a long discussion of which tree. And could it support the cats climbing it, this one was picked. Corvin is cutting it down.

After the tree was packaged and we all paid, we took Henry out for lunch. He doesn’t get to eat out much and we wanted him to select. He landed on Mexican and we found a great place in Washington to eat. After we all got back home and settled, the tree was moved back inside. Coatrack had to check it out first!

And eventually we even decorated it. Overall, it was a great choice!

July – 2019

Another crazy month of random activities has come and gone. We used to dye our hair as a family, but I’m getting old and less fun. However, Sonora dyed her hair what is supposed to be red and blue but looks more purple and pink.

Corvin and Sonora both got some quality time with both cats at once.

As always, Danelle is looking smokin’ hot!

Take a Photo of Sonora Day – 1/20/2019

I think today was “Take a Photo of Sonora Day”. I have an album with tons of photos of her in two different outfits and different poses. I guess I can’t complain because my little girl is growing up and very cute.

I’m not sure what she is laughing at, but its funny!

If she can pose with a cat, its a win!

Coatrack has had enough and is providing a playful bite to let her know.
