Hey everyone, I’m a star!!!
Aren’t you going to let people know what’s going on with us first?
Nope. I’m a star!
This wonderful photo of me was posted on Kaatzenworld’s Happy Tummy Rub Tuesday (TRT). Don’t I look wonderful???? I really love all the glittery things Mom added.
Enough about you! Folks, we’re sorry we’ve been quiet but it’s Mom. Now, we happen to love chasing bugs and catching them.
I’ve been known to sit and stare at dirt for hours. Mom thinks I’m crazy but there are little bugs in there that I’m studying. Once I know everything about bugs, I’ll be even more famous.
Anyway…….Mom obviously doesn’t like catching bugs! She caught a nasty one and she was just so sleepy that she couldn’t do anything.
She made it to work.
That’s true. If she had stayed home from work she might have had more time for us!
Mom made all sorts of funny sounds when she was sleeping. There was wheezing, whistling, crackling, snorting and then the coughing! At first I thought she was trying to purr when she was sleeping.
However, there’s NO WAY we make noises like that when we’re sleeping!!!
So, Mom is finally getting better and seems to have a little more energy.
We’re hoping she gets busy and starts telling all of you about our adventures again.
She can also tell everyone what a STAR I am!!!

I had my first sample of fresh from the garden catnip today and I LOVED it!!!!
Don’t worry, Shakespeare had some too but he didn’t hang around to have his picture taken. I just didn’t seem to care……………..

Mom said we should post this again since it’s that special day. She was going to have us post it last night but she got too busy and forgot. Then she was at the work place all day and after that she had to go practice singing (she still doesn’t do it right so she has to keep practicing….at least that’s what we think.) This was first posted when I was just a kitten and didn’t know much. I know lots more now!

Hemingway, what is Mom talking about? I’m trying to figure out another one of those “human” things. She said something about mayo in the sink. I went and looked and I didn’t see anything. Am I missing out on something? Do you know what she’s talking about?
Shakespeare, you know you’re not supposed to be up on the counter. I’m going to tell Mom that you’re snooping again.
Well, I’m just trying to figure out what all the excitement is about. I even heard them talking about it on the news this morning when Mom was trying to wake up.
I didn’t hear anything about it but I was busy staring at the dirt again. I love to do that. Maybe I can become the world’s best “dirt starer” and make lots of money for treats and toys.
Hemingway, you are so strange. How can I find out about mayo in the sink?
We could Google it. Mom showed me how to do that.
Hey, I never thought about that!
I can’t see when you have your big tail in the way, Shakespeare!
Hey…………is this what you were hearing? Is it Cinco de Mayo?
Maybe. I heard “mayo” and that made me think of sandwiches and you know I love bread. I figured Mom had some sandwiches in the sink or something. If there isn’t any bread involved then I’ll let the humans deal with the “mayo”.
Well, I’m not too sure what it’s all about but I don’t think they mean there’s mayo in the sink. We’ll have to ask Mom about it when she gets home from work.
I’m going to go take a nap now. Leave the computer alone!

I wish Mom would stop with the flashy box when I’m just lying around thinking. What am I thinking? Well, I’m thinking that Hemingway should clean up the black fur he leaves around the house so I don’t have to lie on it and try to cover it up. If Mom sees it, she gets that noisy machine out!
I’m wishing Mom wouldn’t take pictures of me when I’m taking a bath. If you look closely, you can see what I really think of the whole situation……..including what Shakespeare said about me leaving my fur all over the house!

We’re joining our other friends at Athena’s “house” for a fun day of art.

So, last night Mom and I were sound asleep. Suddenly I had a “nightcat”. You don’t know what that is? Well, humans call them “nightmares” and that doesn’t make sense to me. Humans aren’t horses and neither am I. Since the humans are too lazy to make it the right word, I decided I would.
In the light of day I don’t remember what my “nightcat” was about but it sure scared me. I like to sleep up by Mom’s head so she can hear me purring. We were both sleeping soundly and suddenly the “nightcat” made me fly out of bed. Luckily Mom had her hand up by her face and that’s what I used as my launching pad. She flew out of bed then, too.
She had that red stuff coming out of her hand and she had to take care of it. She told me it was very lucky for me that I used her hand as the launching pad and not her face. Needless to say I didn’t get to sleep in her room the rest of the night.
I wish I could remember what the “nightcat” was about. Maybe I was afraid Shakespeare was going to eat all the food in the house…….
I was sound asleep in another room so don’t go blaming me for your “nightcat”!!!

We had to chuckle ‘cuz the first time she tried it out, she hit the ground! The only reason that happened (she says) is ‘cuz it wasn’t adjusted high enough.
Oh sure, Mom!!! Remember just last week when we “accidentally” told our readers that you were klutzy?
Well, tonight she got on it with no problems. She was relaxing from her day at the work place and waiting for supper to finish cooking.
We were both outside playing and checking for bugs, birds and other interesting things.
I looked over and Mom looked soooooo comfortable. She even had a smile on her face. I decided I should join her. So I jumped right up there…
You did not! Mom had to say, “Jumpie up!” before you got up there.
The point is……I got up there and you didn’t! I must admit that I can see why Mom was smiling. It’s a mighty comfortable thing. Luckily we both got off just before it started raining.
That ended our night of fun!

Mom said we had to apologize for going missing for so long.
Why do we have to apologize? She’s the one who was missing!! She didn’t even bother to turn the puter on for us.
Hemingway, Mom had a rough few weeks.
Oh, that’s right. She had all sorts of singing to do for Easter and for a concert last weekend. Then she managed to slice her finger when she was cooking something. We both know she tends to be a little klutzy.
MOL!!! Mom’s going to get you!!!
Anyway, it just seems like Mom’s been running on empty lately.
I NEVER run on empty!!! I remind EVERYONE if my food is low!
So, today was purrfect so Mom was working outside and we were “helping”.
I looked for bugs and things.
I looked for birds and butterflies.
We both ran around the yard chasing leaves and twigs and talking to our dog friends in the neighborhood. We smelled the fresh air and of course we did lots of exploring. Now Mom’s laughing at us ‘cuz this is what we look like after our adventures.
I had too many adventures and now I’m “cat tired!
MOM!!! Get away with that flashy box. I’m trying to take a nap!
From the Mom: Both boys had way too much excitement today and the two pictures above show what they have been doing since coming in and having their supper. I knew they were really really tired when neither one tried to “help” me make the bed with the fresh off the line sheets! Sorry I haven’t been writing, but it’s just been kind of hard lately. We’ll try and stay on top of things! We’ve missed all of you!!!

This is what I think of what happened outside today!!!
Mom!!!! Have you looked outside? The flour fairies came back and they really made a big mess out there! Hemingway and I would have chased them away but you were at work and we are not supposed to go outside when you’re not here. We did try showing them our grumpy faces, though!
Mom would really like to have Flower Fairies in the yard instead of those naughty Flour Fairies!
