We have to apologize for not taking time to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. Blame it on Mom! She got home from work early on Thursday but she went out and started working in the yard. Then on the Fourth, there she was….doing the same thing! At least she had us outside so we were busy telling her what to do.
That night she said she was going over to visit some friends so they could all watch the fireworks together. We had no idea what she was talking about so we just stared at her (…as only we cats can do).
She told us to go around in the yard and look at all the colors and then imagine them up in the sky.
That’s just plain silly! But we wandered around and looked at colors.
We tried to imagine what they would look like in the air and we couldn’t get our kitty brains to work that way.
It’s another strange human thing!
Then Mom brought these photos home so we could see what the fireworks looked like.
Fine. Now we sort of understand.
Why don’t you just hang the flowers up higher and lie down on the ground to look at them?
Then you could celebrate the Fourth of July whenever you wanted!
Is Mom laughing????

I want it made perfectly clear. We’ve been having lots and lots and lots of rain lately.
I think the angels left the showers running.
Shakespeare, I’m talking.
Anyway, when it’s all wet and drippy outside, Mom won’t let us go out ‘cuz she says we’ll get all wet and muddy.
She knows you like to roll in the dirt.
I’m not listening to you.
Mom says you don’t listen to anyone.
What I started to say when I was so rudely interrupted many times by an orange fluff ball is that since we have to stay inside, I have ownership of the remote control.

A couple of weeks ago Mom ran away from home and left us with Uncle Bob. We spent most of the time sleeping or begging for food. When Mom got home we asked her to tell us all about her adventure. Well, we couldn’t believe the pictures she showed us!
This is what she called a horse. We had never heard of a horse before and certainly hadn’t seen one. This horse’s name is Rocky and he’s calmly standing by his proud Dad. Mom said Rocky lives on a farm with other horses, kitties, dogs and humans.
Mom said this little critter is Daisy and she’s a miniature horse. I think she sort of looks like me ‘cuz she has long hair. Mom didn’t get a picture of her tail so I’m sure mine is prettier.
Here’s another miniature horse and he sort of looks like me! See his white stripe down his nose?
Mom said this was a really big horse who loved to prance. I wonder if we can learn to prance. Mom said when I run I already make the same thundering noise the horse made when he ran so I’m sure I can learn to prance.
Here’s another picture of Rocky. Mom said he was really beautiful. I don’t see it. I’m the one who is beautiful!
Here’s Rocky going back to his own patch of grass. See the big white horse?
Mom, you aren’t thinking about getting a horse are you? We’re not sure there’s room for a horse here.
Besides, we don’t want a horse eating our food!!!!

No, it wasn’t me who messed up the rug.
I think the gremlins did it. Or maybe Shakespeare did it. All I know was that it wasn’t me.
I’m in heaven! Mom brought in some fresh catnip for us and tore it into pieces and put it on this rug. I LOVE this rug now!!!! But I’m sure it wasn’t me who messed it up.

A voice in the distance asks, “Does anyone know what today is?”
I do!!! I do!!! See….I’ve got my hand in the air! Well, if I wasn’t so tired and I was actually sitting up, my hand would be in the air. Can’t you just use your imaginations?
I’ve got my hand…er foot…..in the air, too! I know what day it is!
I’m going to make sure that everyone in computer land knows what day it is, too. Now how do you spell catnip?
Good grief……always food!!!
I think I’ll wrap the gift in this paper. Isn’t it pretty?
I wonder what else has been in this bag? Was there maybe some catnip in here? Maybe I should keep this bag for myself.
Shakespeare, we haven’t told the readers what today is.
It’s Mom’s birthday!!!
I wanted to tell them.
You were taking too long.
Well, we both want to tell you to have a very Happy Birthday, Mom and we love you!!!
By the way, you can have the cake, but will you give us some tuna water to help you celebrate your birthday????

The other day Mom was telling us that there is a phrase that humans say.
We don’t like it.
Shakespeare, let me talk. Anyway, she said that the phrase is “curiosity killed the cat”.
I really don’t like that!!!
Well, I have proof that it’s something else that curiosity might cause problems for.
Mom looked outside and saw both of us lying on the ground looking at something. I was kind of far away just lying there looking handsome.
I’m calmly watching while I’m showing off my beautiful tail.
I was up close and personal and so was Mr. Squirrel.
Mr. Squirrel thought I would let him walk on my grass.
He wasn’t afraid of me and I didn’t try to chase him.
Mr. Squirrel finally decided I wasn’t moving so he found a comfortable spot to sit and wait.
Maybe I’ll see you tomorrow, Mr. Squirrel. Have a great evening!
That’s a squirrel????

Where have we been?
What do you mean? I’ve been right here…..either napping or eating.
But we haven’t been in blog world for a long time. People are going to forget all about us.
They wouldn’t dare.
Maybe we should explain to everyone that Mom has been having some owies lately so we’ve been nice and we’ve been trying to take care of her.
I’ve been asking her politely for my food and treats.
That’s not what I mean about being nice. I’ve been curling up with her and purring and licking her face. It’s been hard for her to sleep because of her owies but now the doctor men helped fix that so she can sleep.
And now we can blog!!!! I’m so happy we’re blogging today ‘cuz Hemingway had to go to the doctor man’s house and I didn’t!
You’ll get your turn! I wasn’t happy at all but now that it’s all over and I’ve pronounced healthy…..well, maybe a little too healthy, but at least I lost a little weight…..I can enjoy the nice weather. Here’s my story in pictures:
Here I am calmly sitting in the waiting room of the doctor man’s house.
This is the doctor man’s assistant and he’s trying to find my heart. I’m helping him.
Here’s Dr. Kris showing everyone how big I am. He and his wife have known me since I was a tiny kitten. I’m not tiny now!
It may be comfortable here, but I have a feeling this contraption is going to tell Dr. Kris how much food I’ve been eating.
Hey Dr. Kris…..what does it say now with my feet on the table???
Yep….my head’s screwed on tight.
Are you sure I really need three shots???? At least I’m behaving.
Are you sure my file is correct? I think they put down the wrong number for my weight.
Home again…..home again!!! I’m so happy that’s over. Now I can’t wait until Shakespeare goes to see Dr. Kris!!!
