We’ve been gone a long time.

We’ve got lots of ‘splainin to do.

First of all, it’s not our fault.

Yep, we get to blame Mom again and this time it really is her fault.

Remember when we told you Mom was looking for a job?  She tried to convince us to get jobs but we told her we can’t use the phone and we can’t drive the car to jobs so she kind of eased up on us.

However, we wanted her to get a job so she can keep buying us food, treats and toys!  Did I mention treats??

Well, Mom now has a job.  We’re all doing the Happy Dance.

Not exactly.  Now Mom is gone all the time and that means our play time outside has been severely cut back.  Just when the sun starts shining again and the temps get warmer, Mom goes and gets a job!  Why wasn’t she working in the winter?

Quit complaining.  She lets us out when she can.  However, she has another problem.  She went to see the human doctor man Friday night after work.

I’m glad she didn’t go see our doctor!

She came home with all sorts of meds and told us….

Wait, let me tell!  She has bratwurtitist and red hot lungs.

Goof……..she has bronchitis and inflamed lungs.  She told us she didn’t realize how sick she was.  We heard her coughing and it sounded much worse than when we hack up a fur ball.  We knew she was sick.  Silly humans.

So, she’s on lots of meds now and she had to stay put this weekend.  We got to play outside so we were happy.

Here’s some of our adventures from this morning.

I don't think Mom is going to need all this wood now but I'll guard it from the squirrels.

Mr. Outside Cat, if I don't come and talk to you, it's not 'cuz I'm mad at you.  It's just that Mom is working now so I don't get outside as much.

This is what I do during the day.  I'm not in jail.  I'm in the window checking to make sure the yard is safe.

Thanks for being patient while we tried to get Mom to turn on the ‘puter for us again.  We hope to do a better job staying in touch, but we know Mom has to get better.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!!

Mom went shopping and surprised us with a new toy.

When we first looked at, we couldn’t figure out what was so neat about it.

Then she put treats in it and that sure got our attention.

However, when the thing started rolling around, we thought it was leaving little mouse droppings…….ick!!!

On closer inspection, we discovered it was the treats Mom had put in it!!!

Now what is it we're supposed to do with this thing?

Shakespeare, you just hit it and the mouse gets scared and drops treats for us!

It’s Tuxie Tuesday and I’m king of the world!  Or at least I’m king of this stack of wood!  I can see all of my kingdom from up here.  Servants……..bring me some food and water…and bring me my favorite toys.

I think you look ridiculous. Just saying…………

It’s raining, windy and cold outside so Mom says it’s a good day for naps.

We agree.

I told Mom I was going to make my selfie extra special.

Mom, I was just sitting here gazing out on my land when a movement caught my eye.  I looked again and couldn’t believe my eyes!

See that squirrel?  He kind of blends in with the gate so he’s hard to spot.  However, with my keen kitty eyes, I could clearly see that he came into MY yard, stole some leaves and ran out again.  Mom we have to stop him from stealing.  His mom is going to be upset with him!

We saw this coming last night and we were afraid to look out the windows this morning.

It was kind of pretty against the background of the evergreen tree.

Too much white!

What a mess!

It’s your fault.

Why?

Well, the angels were busy making you that catnip cake with salmon frosting for your birthday.  Angles can sometimes act a little goofy and they were having so much fun getting your cake made that they started having a food fight…..right there in heaven’s kitchen!

So?

So……….all the flour and powdered sugar was flying all over the place and soon spilled out of the kitchen right onto our house.

Is that true?

Sure is.

MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s MY Birthday!!!!  This is the day to celebrate me!!! 

I’m five years old today.  That’s one paw, as I’m showing you in that less than graceful pose Mom took of me one day.  I am now convinced that “High Five” was created so we could celebrate five years.  It’s one paw or one hand!  It works for humans and fur people.  It’s pretty neat.

So, we had a little party today and of course Hemingway had to join in.  Mom says we have to share.  When he has his birthday, I get treats and toys, too…..so I guess it’s only fair.

Here’s what happened when Mom surprised me with the toys and treats.

Let's see what all is here!

Hemingway has already decided he gets the carrot and I've decided I want the blue fishy.

Mom here:  I just want to wish my little orange boy a very happy birthday.  It’s hard to believe he’s five.  I still remember when I first got him and I had no idea he would grow this big.  He’s a good companion for Hemingway, even if they pretend not to like each other all the time.  Thanks for adding so much joy to my life,boys.

Mom is still trying to figure out her new computer so she doesn’t have time to teach us much yet.  So, we decided to pull up some pictures of us gazing at our favorite artist’s work.

I could gaze at Quint's artwork all day!

I wonder if I could learn how to paint like Quint...

Have you met Quint?  He’s a famous cat artist who does beautiful work.

We’ve become friends with all his furmates and his Mom since our mom let us start blogging.

If you want to learn more about Quint, just go to his website Colehaus Cats.

He and His Mom even help other kitties with what he makes on his artwork.

We really love Quint’s talent!!

CAT ARTISTS RULE!!!  Did I do it right, Mom?  Can we have some treats now?
