Mom was so excited when she got home ‘cuz it was sunny and really nice.

After a quick supper for all of us, she put my vest and leash on and we all headed outside.

Actually, I was already outside while you were still getting “dressed”.

Whatever….

We thought we would show you what we were looking at.

I got really scared yesterday.  When I looked outside there was a very bright light out there.  I couldn’t figure out what it was.  I didn’t want Mom to go out there, but she did!

What are you babbling about, Steinbeck?  You know perfectly well that the bright light was the sun!

But we hadn’t seen it for so long.  I thought maybe it had left for good.  That’s why the bright light scared me!

Don’t worry, Steinbeck.  I’m here to take care of you.  That’s what big brothers are for!

So, after supper tonight I was looking over Mom’s shoulder and reading our blog.  I was wondering why Hemingway got to go on a field trip and I didn’t.  Then I read what happened!  OMC!!!!

 I just visited the doctor lady not too long ago ‘cuz I had a problem with my “pants”.  Do you know how humiliating that was??  I couldn’t even talk about it.  

And they did that “manny” “petty” thing on me, too!  He didn’t lose all his claws, he just had them cut shorter.  Why does our Mom want us to have short nails?  Is it just ‘cuz she can’t seem to grow her nails long so she doesn’t want to be jealous of us?  If I promise to always hide them around you, Mom……..will you let me grow them long again?  (Can’t say no if I don’t ask. )

When Hemingway came home last night, I wondered where he had been.  He had different smells and he wasn’t talking.  At first I thought maybe he had gone to visit some of our blogging friends.  However, the more I sniffed him, the more I recognized the doctor lady’s house smells.  I was real nice to him last night and let him recover.

Mom says he has to have his toofie worked on and that they will put him out for it.  Does that mean they will put him outside?  Why can’t he just go outside here?  She said he’ll be gone all day.  That’s a long time for him to be away.  How am I going to survive by myself?

Will I have to eat his food so his dish doesn’t get lonely?

Will I have to drag out all his favorite toys?

Will I have to try out all the litter boxes?  Wait……….I already do that!  Cross that off my list.

Will I have to do the blog by myself again?

This is just too much for my little brain.  I need a nap!

Mom let me out after supper tonight and I thought she was being so nice.  However, she started following me around.  I walked on the deck and she followed me.  I jumped down in the grass and she followed me.  What was she doing???  Next thing I knew, she had picked me up and was carrying me to the gate.  Now, she’ll tell you that’s not an easy thing for her to do.  I’m not exactly made of marshmallows.  Anyway, suddenly I was in the car and she was starting it!  What’s happening?

DSC_0295

Oh, this was not cool.  She took me to the doctor lady’s house!!!  Did I say I wanted to go there?  Why, Mom???  I don’t think I’ll speak to you for a few minutes.

DSC_0299

As usual, I had to try and get all my floofiness into that little basket.  I even had to get my tail in there!

DSC_0302

Mom, it’s sooooooooo humiliating!!!  Why don’t you get in this box and see how you feel?  Then the doctor lady told you that I weigh just a little under 22 pounds.  I didn’t want her to tell you!  Now I’m not speaking to her, either.

DSC_0303

What are you doing, doctor lady?  I told you I’m not speaking to you.  Do you want me to tell everyone how much you weigh?

DSC_0304

Mom, please don’t let her take me!  I heard her say something about shots.  I also heard you tell her that I should have a “manny” “petty”.  I don’t know what that is.  I know I’m a man cat and I’m you’re pet so I’m hoping it’s something good.  (Readers…….don’t let those humans fool you.  I had my claws all nice and sharp for wrestling with Steinbeck and now they’re gone.  I found out a “manny” “petty” means “goodbye claws”.

I finally got home safe and sound and took a nap.  I heard Mom talking about me having to go back in June for some dental work.  I didn’t like hearing that!  I hope they all forget!

From the Mom:  Hemingway was so good at the vet’s.  He is the most mellow cat around and the doctor said she wishes all her patients were like that.  We will have to have a tooth worked on and possibly extracted.  I’ll take him in early in the morning and then bring him home at night.  It’s the first time he’s had any surgery and of course Mom is worried.  For now, we’re just going to have cuddle time.

Mom let both of us play outside today.  I got brave and walked around on the deck.  Mom chose this picture of me checking out some plants.

Steinbeck and plants

Then she did a bunch of things with it using LunaPic and came up with this for our Caturday Art entry in Athena’s blog hop.

Cue the spooky music.

What?

Mom’s going to talk about all your strangeness again.

I’m not strangeness.

You’re strangeness catified.

Am not!

Well, Mom was looking through her elebenty billion photos and was amazed at how much alike you and Shakespeare are.  She’s mentioned it before, but I must admit it is a little spooky.  I’m just glad I’ve always got my tuxedo on so I can’t be confused with you two ginger guys.

Life with gingers is so much fun, even if Hemingway gets a little tired of it.

Way back in 2011, when Steinbeck wasn’t even a speck in his mommy kitty’s eyes, my previous ginger kitty, Shakespeare, tried to find out about this special holiday.   I haven’t checked to see what Steinbeck thinks of this special day, but here’s what Shakespeare thought.

Angel Shakespeare as a kitten

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!

MOM

MOM!!!  Don’t tell me you forgot!  What were you thinking?  You went out after work and didn’t get home until late.  You didn’t even schedule play time with me.  Don’t you realize that I became almost a year old yesterday?  I’m eleven months and one day old now.

Steinbeck, dear precious kitty.  I did not forget.  However, I went to visit a couple of your blogging buddies and their humans.  I hadn’t seen them for a long time and I knew you would understand.

who

So who was it?  Are you sure I know them?

Yes you do.  It was Katie and Waffles from Glogirly, Tails of Two Funny Cats & Their Girl.

Did Waffles remember me and did he wish me a happy almost one year old birthday?

Waffles

Happy Birthday, Steinbeck. I’m trying to convince these humans that they need to stop talking and pay attention to me.

Waffles, my human very seldom listens to me.  If you get several of them together in one room, it’s a hopeless mess.

Steinbeck, be good.  Here’s a picture of Waffles, his human Debby, and me.  We’re not sure what Waffles was trying to tell us, but he didn’t really want his picture taken.

Debby Me and Waffles

Where’s Katie?  And what are all the lights behind you?

Oh, I got to see Katie but I didn’t get a picture of her.  She was busy being queen of the place so she didn’t want to socialize with us peasants.  But she did come out to show us all how pretty she is.

Does she want a younger boyfriend?  I’m almost one now.  I should be able to start dating.  Don’t you agree, Waffles?

I think she’s pretty busy, but Waffles could ask her.  Remember she doesn’t live close to you now.  Oh, the lights are so pretty from where Waffles and Katie live.  Here’s a shot Gloman helped me take of all the city lights.

Thanks mom

Mom, I’m kind of tired now so you can turn off the puter.  Thanks for not forgetting my eleventh month day.  I’m glad you got to see your human friends and our furry friends.
