Do I look tired?  Do I look annoyed?  Do I look messy?  The answer is yes to all three and none of those things can be blamed on me.  First of all, I’m tired ‘cuz I’ve had to take care of Mom lately and also watch out for my little brother and make sure he doesn’t get into trouble.  I’m annoyed ‘cuz I don’t want all that responsibility.  I’m messy ‘cuz that blob of light yellow by my cheek is actually part of a dried leaf.  Steinbeck loves to “prune” the plants and then he scatters dead leaves on the floor.  If I happen to roll in them, they stick to my gorgeous furs!!!


Hey Hemingway………….whatcha’ doin’ now????  Is Mom better yet?  She told me that she caught a bug and it made her sick.  I catch bugs and I just play with them but they don’t make me sick.  Mom’s kind of crazy.  Why was she playing with the bug?  What did the bug do to her?  How come she didn’t let me play with the bug?  Hemingway……….is it time to eat yet???

See what I mean?  No peace and quiet for me!!!  Actually, Mom did catch a bug and she was pretty sick for a few days.  She had to go to the “human vet” and get some medicine and now she’s feeling fine.  She told me that since she’s o*l*d, it takes her longer to snap back.  She was pretty tired for many days but we both tried our best to take care of her.

Hemingway……….have you seen my favorite toy?

Can I come stay with one of you for a couple of days?  I really need a vacation!!!  Sigh…..












Mom caught us being cuddly together and she made this piece of art for us!

It’s my turn to be in the spotlight.  The little one keeps hogging all the blog time.  So, Mom said I could be the Caturday Art subject today.  I think the red sets off my black furs very nicely.  Of course it looks like my one eye is kind of funky so I still have things to learn about art!

I was just running around doing my normal stuff the other night.  First I chewed on some of my toys.  Then I tried to chew on Mom’s foot.  Then I jumped up on top of the computer desk and tried to chew on the corner of it.


Then I found some paper to chew on.  It was kind of shiny and it made noise.  When I got tired of it, I tried to chew on an empty box.

That’s about the time Mom told me something that I didn’t understand at all!!!  She said I had beaver jeans.  I know Mom wears jeans sometimes but I don’t know if they’re beaver jeans or not.  What are beaver jeans?  I don’t wear any jeans…..beaver or otherwise.  Why would Mom say something like that?  


And by the way…………..what is a beaver???

Guess what Mom did!  She forgot to share with everyone that is was my seven months birthday and it was TWO DAYS AGO!!!!!  She claims that after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Years, she was tired and needed to take a break from the computer.  Likely story.  I’m thinking she just let my special day get away from her.

Well, she left the ‘puter on for a bit and I carefully crept over and posted my own Monthly Birthday Salute!  I’m seven months….and a couple of days…..now.  Mom said I’m over half-way to becoming an adult kitty.  Hemingway claims I’m much further away but he’s my big brother so what can I say?!

Here’s my celebration photo.


I’m trying to count seven on my paws but I keep getting confused! Thanks for helping me celebrate, even if I am almost eight months old now!!!

From the Mom:  I remembered the day of his seven month birthday but I chose not to even turn the computer on that day.  Steinbeck, we have to work a little on that patience thing, don’t we?  Oh, and don’t be messing with my computer when I’m not around.  Happy Seven Months Birthday, little one.

We’re kind of being mellow today.  Christmas wore us out!

You didn’t have to get into EVERYTHING!

Isn’t that what Christmas is for?  All those packages filled with toys and treats and catnip smells.

Some were mine and you tried to open all of them.

Oh well, I’m just a kitten.  What can you expect?

Obviously, not much!

Mom says we’re supposed to say Happy New Year to everyone.  What does that mean?

It means that tomorrow it will be 2017.

What is it today?

It’s the last day of 2016.

I’ve never seen 2017 before.

None of us have but we’re hoping God will bless us with some wonderful moments and be right by our sides during the tough times.  We hope and pray that will hold true for all of our readers.

This is my first Christmas!!!  Did you know that, Aunt Theresa?  I’m so excited you’re here!

Mom took lots of pictures of both of us at the Christmas/Birthday celebration.  I swear she had that flashy box going all the time!!!  Normally Steinbeck shuts his eyes when he sees her pointing it at him but this time he was so excited he kept his eyes open!!

Mom said we could do a slide show of some of our pictures.  I know how to slide!

Steinbeck, that’s not what it means.  Just put the pictures up here.

At the end of the day, it was almost too much for Steinbeck!



Steinbeck, Christmas isn’t just about the treats and toys…..


Yes, Santa Paws usually leaves treats and toys for us.  However, as I was saying, Christmas is more than that.  It’s a time to relax and reflect on all the good things that have happened to you.

Like finding a furever home?

Yes, that’s it.  Many fur people don’t have homes and they are all alone.  We need to pray for them that they will find the love they need and deserve.  We also need to pray that the humans all over the world will learn to get along.

That’s a big prayer!

Yes, but God is a big God.

Now, we better go check on Mom and the rest of the family and make sure they are having fun.

Merry Christmas to all of our special blogging friends!!!



Hey Everyone!!!  It’s my birthday today so Mom made a very colorful picture of me for Caturday Art.  She said she’s so proud of me ‘cuz I’m seven years old now.  She said she’s so glad she adopted me and gave me a furever home.  I’m all excited ‘cuz this will be Steinbeck’s first Christmas and he doesn’t know about all the neat things Santa Paws will bring for both of us.

Mom said I should take the time to thank all of you dear readers for following us this year and we hope to provide you with lots of entertainment next year.  We especially want to thank everyone for the wonderful support when we lost our precious Shakespeare.  Mom gets watery eyes even now when she thinks of all the kind words, prayers and hugs we both received.

May your Christmas be glorious and may you feel God’s love surrounding you.

Merry Christmas to all!!

Oh, check out the other Caturday Art that our friends did.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  We only have a mom but I was so excited when I saw her come up to my cage at the Humane Society.  I was with some siblings but she spotted me right away.  We went into a room so we could play together.  Her girlfriend was with her and she took some pictures of us.  Both of them decided I was the perfect choice so she took me to my forever…
