Our cousins came to visit today so we told Mom to take a picture of Static for our blog.

Here’s what he looks like normally:

Here’s what he looks like after we played with the picture:

Launching!

Oh My

Readers, we have a problem!  I like to sleep with Mom and she likes it when I purr in her ears.  Now that winter is coming, I like to sleep on top of her head so she doesn’t get cold.  She doesn’t mind as long as I don’t snore.  Some of you already know this about me but I’ll explain to the new people.  Sometimes at night I have “nightkitties”.  You don’t know what they are?  I know some of you do ‘cuz I’ve talked about them before.  Mom talks about “nightmares” but I told her that since I’m not a horse, I can’t have “nightmares” so I have “nightkitties”.  Oh, and Mom has “nighthumans”, in spite of what she says.

Anyway, when I have a “nightkitty” and get scared, I tend to launch myself off Mom’s head.  Of course for extra traction my claws are out a little.  That’s the bigger problem!  Poor Mom has marks on her face that I made.  Currently she has a big scratch on her chin from one of my launches the other night.

Mom says I should launch straight up like the normal rockets and not touch her.

I should launch like this.

But I launch like this.

So, I’m wondering if there are any Launching 101 casses anywhere in the Blogosphere.  I don’t want to leave marks on Mom’s face.  By the way, Steinbeck never does this.  Launching sideways is my very own special problem.

Thanks for listening!

……….and we got presents!!!!

Steinbeck and Cat Mat 3

This is my pretty new present.  It’s a Cat Mat by Mildred.  It’s round and has all sorts of pretty colors.

This is my Cat Mat.  It is rectangular and the red shows off my Tuxedo furs.

Steinbeck and Red Cat Mat 1

Look……….it shows off my ginger furs.

Steinbeck get off of there!

Hemingway and Cat Mat 1

This is mine and I love it.  It’s so soft.  It’s like I’m resting on a cloud.

Steinbeck and Cat Mat 2

Mine is really soft, too.  It’s like I’m in the middle of a rainbow.

Hemingway and Cat Mat 3

I even like to hide under mine!

Thanks, Mom!

Did you bring some treats for us, too?

From the Mom:  The Cat Mats by Mildred are made by a friend of mine.  Mildred’s human can do an amazing job of knitting.  He has done so many different things for friends and family.  We were talking one day and I said it would be neat to have a little blankie for cats out of some of the soft yarn he has.  Instantly the idea became Cat Mats by Mildred and he gave me samples for Hemingway and Steinbeck.  Mildred is his cat and she is a Princess.  Her Cat Mat is pink with some jewels.  If anyone is interested in a Cat Mat, contact me and I will put you in touch with Mildred’s human.  He’s just starting this and could do different colors,shapes and sizes.

 

So………Hemingway talked me into doing this selfie.  I had been sleeping very soundly and then a camera appeared.  I touched the button and to my horror, this appeared.  Hemingway laughed at me and said I looked like I had “bed hair”.  Well, he was all wrong with that ‘cuz I was sleeping on the couch so I must have had “couch hair”.  Mom said I have to have a date with the brush.  I thought she said I was too young to date!!

Whine

Guess what………guess what……..guess what…………..

I’m so excited.  I want to should the news from the rooftop!!!

IT’S SNOWVEMBER!!!!

Mom took some pictures outside when she got home.  She showed them to me and I was so happy.  Before you ask…….no I have not walked in it yet.  Hemingway told me I wouldn’t like it.  Besides, Mom doesn’t want us going out when she gets home from work ‘cuz it’s getting dark.  I hope you enjoy the Snowvember Pictures!!!

Mom, is this Snowvember now?  Those people on TV who point at maps and numbers and things promised there was going to be snow today.  I figured when I woke up from my nap this afternoon, it would look like this outside:

Snow 2016

This is what Snowvember looked like last year.  It was my first Snowvember so I thought it would always be like that this time of year.

You were wrong.

Well, Hemingway, so were those weather people on TV.  I thought humans weren’t supposed to lie to fur people.

No Snow

Just look at this, weather humans.  Do you see any snow at all by my feet?  You promised snow for today.  What happened???

imageedit_9_3571163348

This is what I should look like today.  My fur should be all white and the ground should be white and there should be little white things falling from the sky.  When the weather humans say there’s going to be snow…….there better be snow!!! 

Why 

 

Oh mighty weather humans, do you see what you’ve done?  You have made it impossible for me to live with this cranky orange cat who thinks it’s Snowvember.  Mom doesn’t want snow so I don’t understand why Steinbeck wants it.  Is there any hope for me to have a peaceful life???  Oh, and can you take his soap box away from him?  Thank you very much.

Last year I was just a little kitten and didn’t really understand why all those little humans came knocking at our door, asking for candy.  I even wondered if kitties went door to door asking for catnip.

You were pretty confused……in fact, you still are.

No, I’m a big kitty now and I know lots of stuff so I’ll be brave and maybe even look out the window.

I’ll meet you under the bed.  I don’t think you’ll be able to look out the window.

You mean we’re both going to be scared?

Well, there will be more noise than usual and Mom will constantly be going to the door.  I don’t think we’ll be able to nap comfortably.

I sure hope Mom doesn’t forget to give us our treats!

Readers, we had Mom help us with a couple of Halloween pictures for you to enjoy.

Steinbeck Fangs

If you look carefully, you can see my fangs!

Hemingway Halloween

I went for a calmer, more mosaic look this year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Hey……Halloween must be for US!  Look at the colors……..orange and black…….just like us!!

Big stack of wood

First of all Mom……you focused on the wood and not on me.  Second of all….what’s with all the wood?  You know how I love to chew on wood and this is way more than I can chew!

I found a secret hall

Look!  There’s a little hallway here.  I have a new hidey spot!!

Steinbeck and his wood

MOM!!!  Don’t let Hemingway see my new hidey spot.  Did you just take a picture of it?  Are you going to post it on that blogosphere place?  Now everyone’s going to know where my new hidey space is!

My eyes look like leaves

What hidey spot?  I was busy noticing how the leaves seem to match my eyes!  Steinbeck….leave that wood alone!

I’m going to show you what I plan on doing today.  I’m going to watch football with Mom.  She loves to wave her arms when she’s watching the Vikings so I keep control of the remote.  I’ve also learned not to try and lay on her lap ‘cuz she doesn’t sit still.  However, it’s quality time with Mom.

I hope all of you have a fabulous day.  Please visit my other friends at the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by our friends, Kitties Blue.

Mom was laughing at me when I was playing with my carrot.  Next thing I knew, I was the Caturday Art star!

My Carrot

I think I make a good poster kitty for the benefits of healthy eating!

Oh, and this is what Mom did to it.  She gave me a blue tummy!!!
