Saturday Snapshot - February 25, 2012

Saturday Snapshot
Casey and her mouse. She absolutely adores these type of mice. She keeps losing them, though. When I finally broke down and gave her a new one (these are pricey) she woke me up at 5:30 in the morning with the mouse in her mouth.
But, she can play cute and sweet so easily no one would ever believe she is capable of that, right?
This is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books.

Apparently judging by my post yesterday people have never heard The Civil Wars before. This is a real shame! Here are three four of their songs for you to enjoy and then go listen to more! They just sound so amazing together and the girl, wow, can she sing. And she makes it seem so natural!!





















Carl just recently discovered them and posted about his experience here.

  1. She is so adorable! I love that second picture especially.

    Our cat would love that toy, not because of the mouse factor, but because it has feathers, and he goes CRAZY whenever there's a feather around.

    1. Yeah, that picture turned out great. It took about 30 tries to get, though. She always moves. It's worse if I use my phone because it makes a beeping noise just beforehand and she automatically wants to know where it came from and moves...

      The feathers don't last. The older versions are missing all of them and that one lost most of the green one the first night.

  2. I discovered The Civil Wars at beginning of January. I like their sound a lot, and have been seriously considering adding an album to my collection so that I can listen to them while I drive. Good stuff.

    1. They are pretty great! We caught them on late night last year and immediately had to explore them more.

  3. Casey is such a pretty kitty!!

    I really like the Civil Wars as well - Taylor Swift, not so much (the girl really isn't that good of a singer).

    1. Thanks!

      I am not a huge Taylor Swift fan either. It was pure accident that I even saw the video for her new song and only stopped to listen when I saw it was featuring The Civil Wars.

    1. haha! She is so friendly I don't think she would mind... Your dogs might, though. She drives my mother's pets crazy and they are way bigger than her.

  7. What an adorable cat! We have bought tons of toys for our kitties and the only thing they really like is the laser pointer.

    1. Oh, Casey loves her laser pointer. She tracks it down, picks it up in her mouth and then drops it at someone's feet. I am trying to get a picture or video, but no luck so far...

  8. You picked 4 I really like. I LOVE Barton Hollow though. And curse her, for being so beautiful and so talented! lol He is really good too; definitely knows how to play guitar. He reminds me of Jack White so much, in looks anyway.

    Also, your kitty is so gosh darn adorable!

  11. Casey looks like a character! I keep finding old "mice" around here...sometimes they disappear for a long time only to be re-discovered with great pleasure by one of the Triad. I was keeping some toys in a drawer in a little chest in the hall, but they discovered how to open the drawer and retrieve them. Had to find a new hiding place.

    I was not familiar with Civil Wars, but am now smitten! Thanks, Kelly!

    1. Casey has a very distinct personality, that's for sure! I was looking for her mouse last night and I found toys everywhere. I didn't bother digging them out. She really only plays with other toys when she can't find her mouse. I keep her new toys in a little box on top of the fridge. I managed to track down 2 of the mice in the picture. I don't see them around today, so no idea where they have been hidden. She has a stash somewhere!

      I am glad you are enjoying the Civil Wars!

  13. What an adorable cat! And is it just me, or does that singer look uncannily like Johnny Depp?

    1. I thought that when I saw him the first time, too!

  14. How cute! My Sabertooth has a fur covered rat with little rattle type things inside. I try to put it out of reach at night, but the little bugger finds it anyway!

    I did my Saturday Snapshot this week on my pets - upallnightreading.wordpress.com

    1. I know. I should start hiding her favourite toys at night so I don't have to dig them out from under things in the morning... She would probably find them, though.

  16. What a cute cat! Pets always like the expensive toys!

    I haven't heard of The Civil Wars, but I just listened to a copuple of the songs you posted and really enjoyed them. Thanks for drawing them to my attention.

    1. It's a combination of the noise they make and the feathers, I think. I am not sure if there is cat nip.

      I am glad you enjoyed The Civil Wars!

  17. Aww. She really looks just like my Calvin. I've been really enjoying all the photos of her :D

  18. It would be hard to resist giving a favorite toy to a face like that.

    1. I know! She knows that endless crying will lead to either a new toy or me searching under furniture for the old ones. When I walk by with a flashlight and the fly swatter she knows what is in store. She lays down on the floor and looks, too. Usually either right in my face or right in the beam of the flashlight...

  19. She has the most velvety fur I've ever seen! Very pretty :)

  22. I did indeed, and they've been a staple of my music listening almost every day since then. Wow are they good!

  23. Today's post reminded me to stop and tell you that I started a Civil Wars channel on Pandora thanks to you and listen to it about once a week. More if the baby won't sleep, it's great night time stuff. I keep meaning to take note of the other bands they play on it, but never do.
