Rio Oki seems to love her sister Mochi

I love to see Rio Oki getting along with Mochi so well.  I constantly see them playing, chasing each other and teasing each other.  I was worries for a bit because Rio really liked her alone time.  I think she just didn’t know what she was missing!

They just have the best time together!!

Rio and I still have our personal time too…

I hope to get some video of them both playing together this weekend.  Sorry it’s been so long since i’ve posted but we recently found out I’m pregnant and I’ve been CRAZY TIRED.  Rio always loves to lay with me after work and make me feel better.  Lots of LOVE and #sandpaperkisses to all my FURiends!! #wlf


Halloween PIX

@supernatural808 was so sweet to make some Halloween pictures for me!  Rio Oki has a real Halloween costume which she is going to HATE but we couldn’t help but get it.

The first time she tried this on...not amused.

Here are the ones from @supernatural808

I’d love to hear which one I should use as my twitter pic for the holiday or if anyone wanted to send me more to post up.  I also love to see all my FURiends costumes too!

LOVE n’ #sandpaperkisses to @supernatural808 and all my FURiends!  I will have more pix on Halloween for SURE!


So Luke finished Catopia!!        Rio LOVES it!!!!

Finishing the “U”
Finished the “U” still a lot more to go
Attached foam for maximum comfort!

Added faux fur to the interior of the box (not the bottom yet but did later)

Rio impatiently waiting…

Husband stained it.

Luke had to carry it through the sliding glass doors because it won’t go through a standard door.

4 steps, a sleeping box, a back deck, and a front lounge U.

Putting the box in, It is padded on top and front and has a covered pillow for inside

Faux fur on the steps

Rio Oki's first time in her box, sniffing everything.

My mama made throw pillows for my couch with this material so we used the same to tie the structure into our livingroom.Back deck, put her food and her plant on it to make it feel like home.

Attached the "U" so soft and cushie

Front view


Rio Oki’s first time on the Lounge U
Rio Oki on the deck, with her dinner.

So far she really likes it! I can’t wait to see her tonight and see if she is more comfortable chillin on the top!  We have video’s too but I haven’t gotten them off my phone.  Will be posted tomorrow.

Lots of love and #sandpaperkisses! YAY CATOPIA!!

Tonight Catopia

So this is the night we do more work on CATOPIA!! I am very excited! Rio has been trying to get in the garage all week (that’s where it is right now).  This WILL be done this weekend, so help me.  The plan is to wrap the vertical wood with a twine type rope for scratching.  This still has to be bought but JoAnne Fabrics gave us a nice 40% coupon that we are going to use.  I’m sure we have to get more padding too.

I wanted to give a HUGE shout out to @CatPicturesNYC  that did my top picture (the top of the page) for my blog.  What a nice person to just do something like that!!! I love it. Please let me know what you think of it! Please also check out their page,

It’s also been really cold and rainy this week. Rio has been snuggling up with me and sleeping under covers with me

I hope Monday will bring more video’s, pix and CATOPIA!!!

Til then, lots of love and #sandpaperkisses
