That’s me!!!

imageedit_9_9015459481

I’m the brave one. I went outside in the cold airs and I even sat down on the really cold deck.  Mom, you could have cleared a bigger space for me.  I barely fit all of me in this spot.  See the wood?  That’s so we can have fires in the house and make it cozy.  The wood man came last weekend with his really big truck and unloaded wood for the house.  We were both scared of him ‘cuz he doesn’t come that often, but we were all thankful he was here.

I’m brave, too!  It’s just that my toy wanted me to stay inside with it and sit in the sun puddle.  I didn’t want to hurt the toy’s feelings so I stayed inside where it’s warm.  I didn’t want my ginger toes touching all that cold white stuff.  I sniffed the cold airs and decided the angels had left the freezer doors open way too long for me.

Mom had the day off today so we both got extra play time with her.

She had to go see the dentist and get her toofies cleaned.  She told me that they use root beer flavored cleaning stuff.  What’s root beer?

It’s a flavor you probably wouldn’t like.  They would have to use catnip flavored stuff for us.

My toofies are fine so I don’t need to be going anywhere no matter what flavor is involved.

And you were talking about being brave?

Never mind…………..

Mom was late getting home from work today because she said she stopped to vote.

I smelled food on her.  Didn’t she know we were home starving?

We decided to let you know what we thought of the voting thing that humans do.

imageedit_1_2756717290

I take this voting thing seriously.  I wore my badge all night and was proud of it.

imageedit_3_3589401613

Not me.  I yanked that sticky thing off of me and stomped on it.  Don’t ask my why.  I just had the feeling that’s what I was supposed to do.

That’s the youngster showing up in Steinbeck.  He doesn’t understand the importance of voting.

As long as the gingers win, it’s fine with me.

How can the gingers win if you don’t even vote?  Besides, the tuxedos are winning.

You’re asking mighty difficult questions on my empty stomach.  I can’t think fast enough.

Well, all I can tell you is that if you were running the election, everyone would be eating instead of voting.

There’s something wrong with that?

I give up!  Mom, you try talking to him.

I thought I would do a Catoween Revisited for today.  This post was from 2014 and there’s my beloved Shakespeare.  Now I see how much bigger he was then Steinbeck is.  However, Steinbeck has tons of Shakespeare’s personality.  Happy Catoween All!!!gr_ith117

It’s Catoween Day and I’m going to go trick or treating for catnip, salmon, crinkly toys and jingle bells.  I don’t like all those silly costumes so I’m just going to wear my crown.

Hey wait a minute!!!!  I was planning on going as a king tonight, too.  Shakespeare, did you get into my supply of crowns again?

I see it’s a case of “monkey see, monkey do”.

Where are the monkeys?  Are they coming with us????  They better not eat any of my treats!!!

Look!  I’m up in a tree!!

imageedit_9_4962107397

Mom was taking pictures of the maple tree and then thought she should add me.  Sometimes I really wonder about her.  I had no desire to climb that tree.  In the first place, it’s in the front yard and I don’t go out there.  In the second place it was windy and leaves were flying around.  In the third place, I wanted to just take a nap.  Oh well……….

Mom used me for  Caturday Art today.  I was calmly sitting in the doorway watching Hemingway wander around on the deck.  Suddenly there was a bright flash and I heard Mom saying, “Oh Steinbeck, you kept your eyes mostly open.  Good boy!”

Then she started playing around with it and ended up with this!

I think I look kind of spooky but that fits for Halloween.  MOL!

Have a great weekend!

Why are you insideSteinbeck, won’t you come outside?  I could use your fluffy tail to help Mom paint these windows.  I don’t want to get white on my regal black tail.

imageedit_1_2978327468

Hemingway, nobody is using my tail as a brush!

But look, you already have white in it.  Are you sure you haven’t been in the paint?

imageedit_18_4859700020

I haven’t been in the paint.  I’m too busy checking on all these plants that Mom brought inside.  I guess she thought they were getting lonely so she brought them in so we could keep them company.  Mom is always thinking of others.

And so ends another typical day in our household.  We each seem to do our own things and then we all gather on Mom’s bed at the end of the day.

The Boys Being Good

Hemingway, don’t breathe on me…..you’ll mess my furs!

Happy “Sun” Day, everyone.  I’ve been spending time outside in the sunshine today.  Steinbeck decided it was too windy so he stayed inside.  I stayed outside watching the birdies, the squirrels, and the doggies walking by.  I had a grand old time.  I decided to go with my “Jungle Kitty” shot for my selfie today.  I hope you like it.

Here’s what Mom turned it into using LunaPic:

Don’t forget to check out what our other friends did at the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Amber Door

Mom, why do they call you an Amber Door at work?

Oh Steinbeck, you don’t have it quite right.  I volunteered to help with a new reward program at work.  Those of us who volunteered are called Ambassadors………..not Amber Doors.  It’s a neat program and it gives me a chance to recognize coworkers who are in other countries.  Now we can say thanks to anyone in the company for a great job and everyone can see that thanks through the special recognition board.

Can you recognize kitties?

We don’t have any kitties working for the company.

How about the other humans, do they have kitties?

I know some of them do.

Well, you can recognize those humans for being kind to their kitties.

We’ll see.

Mom?  Can we send Steinbeck to school so he can learn to listen better?

amber door

Steinbeck, what’s that?

It’s an amber door.

So why are you putting it on our blog?

Mom said that at work she’s an amber door and I just don’t understand.  I thought maybe some of our readers might.

Steinbeck, I’m sure you didn’t hear her right.  MOMMMMMMMM……….are you an amber door?

She says she’s busy and doesn’t know what I’m talking about.

Dance1

Oh well…………let’s play.

But what about the amber door?

Maybe if our readers tune in tomorrow or the next day, they might find out.

 

 

………on this cool autumnal day! The scenery is changing, we must say. The leaves they fall and the ducks all fly away……and the ground will soon be frozen hard as ice.

imageedit_1_6652506940

Steinbeck, what on earth are you doing?

I’m singing Mom’s favorite song, “My Old Kentucky Home”.

Why?

Well, that’s where she was born and she likes it and it makes her think of her dad who was also born there.

I meant, why are you singing, but more importantly…..those aren’t the words.

I’m being creative.

imageedit_4_7426985636

Oh give me a home, where the carrots grow tall……..where the catnip still grows in the fall……..where bunnies and squirrels don’t tease me at all……..and the sunshine still warms all my furs…………

Hemingway?????????

If you can do it, so can I.
