Tortie Tuesday

Samson was complaining in his blog post yesterday that us Tortie girls were stealing his photo time. I have to say that the opposite is true. He's a camera hog!



I was just having a relaxing nap and as soon as Mommy takes out the camera, Samson is there. He thinks I don't notice.



On another note, Bella and I shared some sunbeams together the other day. She wasn't too happy at first, but I wasn't about to let some hissing get in the way of a good sunbeam.



Eventually she realized I wasn't going anywhere and she calmed down enough to turn her back on me. Mommy says that this is 'progress'...whatever that means.



She still separates us during the day when she's at work and she says that it's because of the size difference between us. I'm twice her size and Samson is even bigger than me. Mommy's worried that if one of us loses our cool, we could hurt her, so she wants to wait until we're more adjusted before she lets us all roam free. It's not my fault Bella's so teeny tiny!



I also want to add that I am not overweight (the vet says I'm full of muscle from all my training and I'm just a big girl). She is a very small cat and she looks a lot smaller without all her floof.

Both of you on the same bed. That's progress.

Mom is going to mail your carrier tomorrow.

We're happy to see you sharing sunbeams with Bella! She is a tiny little thing isn't she but you both are very pretty Torties! We always like seeing you and Samson together too and we wish we could be with him too! He's such a sweet, handsome Mancat!

It's nice to see all of you. Bella is little, but she'll probably start ruling the roost before you know it.

TWO bootiful torties... please can we add two other tortie days to the week so we can see even more of the bootiful ladies?

Awww, you two girls are so sweet. We didn't realize how tiny Bella is though. LOVE that second photo....your expression is priceless, and Samson looks so innocent!

Kea said...

Both of you that close is great progress. Hurrah for Bella!

We don't think you look overweight. Bella *is* very small!

Marg said...

That is so exciting that you two torties are on the same bed. Hopefully Bella will get used to you other two very soon. She is probably very scared.
Hope you have a good day.

You are making good progress! Mom still keeps Figaro in his own room at night, but we are all starting to get used to him. The funny thing is that he has been furriends with Jonesie outside, but she hisses at him in the house...and Ginger...well Ginger fusses at EVERYONE!! (don't tell her I said that)

We bet Bella might be touching furs with you some day.

Progress is a good thing. Sunny spots are powerful things and bring everycat together.

Sammy and Andy said...

YAY for the progress!!!!! We so want Bella to be comfortably at home with y'all. We purr every day for a quick adjustment period. xxxxxxxxxx

Mishkat said...

We're very happy to see you and Bella sharing the sun! We think this is progress too.

The Island Cats said...

Glad to see the two of you can turn your backs to one another...pretty soon, you'll be able to sit on the same bed facing each other. That is progress!

JC said...

At least you are sitting on the same couch together ... we've had our Meredith for almost seven months now and she still is a bit shy around the rest of our Purr Gang. It takes time ...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

I dunno why moms alway fink we will harm the skinny-mini ones ~ when Alfie was little he was a right tuffy-bum and would scraitch my nose as soon as look at it. Cum to fink of it he hasn't changed much.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

That's GREAT news about you and Bella, Deli!!! And with looks like Samson's we'd be camera hogs too!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We agree that it is progress! That is great you are sharing sunbeams!

Our mom still separates the little kittens during the day because she is afraid they will get hurt - just because Barney can play a little rough sometimes. So we understand what your mom means.

And wow, she does look a lot smaller than you - we didn't realize she was so tiny (though we do understand that there is also a difference because of the lack of floof).

ABBY said...

Those were delightful pictures of all of you. Delilah that first picture of your face is adorable. We are glad you and Bella are adjusting so well. She is tiny we can see. I can say from experience being the smallest in stature of the bunch it's all about the catitude.

We are glad to see you both on the same bed. Was Samson keeping out of the way?

CCL Wendy said...

I love that first picture. Deli looks like she has a real sneer on her face!

I'm glad that Deli and Bella are making progress. I would imagine Bella might feel a little overwhelmed, too, with the others being so much bigger than she is.

She has such a darling little face. I can't to see her once her fur's grown back.

Keiko said...

Aw Deli, we are happy that you and Bella actually lay down on the same bed! Our original trio can do it, but Pricilla doesn't let Yuji on the bed at the same time as her... sighs...
We know you're all muscle! Bella is tiny with her shorn fur... purrs!
