Happy Caturday to everyone!  We’re joining Athena’s Blog Hop today and we’re looking forward to seeing what all our friends are doing.

Mom had this picture of me that she wanted to use.  She said I look rather grumpy.

Just Walk Away

I guess maybe I was.  I had been watching the birdies and someone called my name.  I hadn’t done anything wrong so I didn’t know why anyone was calling me.  Turns out Mom just didn’t know where I was since the blinds were shut to keep the heat out.

Here’s what Mom did with the photo.

Of course she used LunaPic to “dress up” the photo.  She said she did something real simple this time.  She just used the splash art effect and then added rounded corner.  My eyes still look a little grumpy but I like all the colors.

Have you missed us?  We’ve been gone a really long time. We’ve been busy playing outside, eating catnip, chasing flying things, watching raindrops on the windows, patiently waiting for our meals, spreading our toys all over the house………

Stop, Hemingway!!!  You’re wearing me out.  Can’t  you just imagine what you’re doing to our readers?

Well, I didn’t want it to seem like it’s all Mom’s fault that we’ve been gone so long.

But it is mostly her fault.  It all started when she got older.  She couldn’t even stay home when she got older.  She had to take one of those road trips and leave us to celebrate her birthday on our own.

But she came back home and she spent some time with us since she took a couple extra days off.

Little did she know that she was going to be spending LOTS of time with us.

Shortly after her birthday, Mom came home a little early from work but she didn’t have a happy face.

We knew right away that something was wrong.

Mom sat us down and explained that her company former company had eliminated her position and she was out of a job.  She was really mad at first and really, really hurt.  We tried our best to take care of her and cheer her up.

So Mom’s been looking for another job and doing some writing on some book ideas she has.  That’s why she hasn’t been able to help us with our blog.  We’ve missed our readers.

Steinbeck, Mom figures that God still wants to her to use the skills, talents and abilities that He gave her so she knows He has something for her.  In the meantime she said she’s busy jumping through all the hoops for unemployment.

I haven’t seen any hoops lying around at all.  Does she keep them in the garage? I might like to jump through hoops.  Then again, I might not…….but I should get the chance…..

Steinbeck, sometimes it’s so hard to carry on a conversation with you.

I’m telling Mom that  you’re being mean again, Hemingway.

Quit whining and keep looking on the puter for a new job for Mom.  Do you think she would like to be a tree trimmer?

Hemingway, do we get a vacation?

imageedit_6_8625097896

Steinbeck, why are you asking such a question?  Mom would quickly tell you that every day is a vacation for you.  Mom has to go to work and I have to stay home and take care of you.  That means all you do is sleep, eat and play.

Is that a vacation?

Well, it can be.

Is that what Mom did when she went on that vacation last weekend?

Not really.  Mom was busy running around with her girlfriend, checking out neat restaurants, looking for fun things to buy and playing with her girlfriend’s dogs.

imageedit_3_6051781225

Trust me.  Playing with dogs is NOT a vacation!!!  What did the dogs look like?  Were they as cute as I am?

Give me a break.  Here’s a picture.  Each dog has a favorite toy as you can see.

MOL!!!  I see what’s wrong with them.  They both look like you!

imageedit_1_9063337780

Mom………on your next vacation……….I’m going with you!  I know I hate to ride in the car but taking care of Steinbeck is getting harder and harder as he gets older.  I need a vacation!

Hemingway, I like having carburetors in my meals.

What on earth are you talking about, Steinbeck?

Well, remember when you had to go to the doctor’s house a little while ago?

Of course I remember.  I got a shot!

Yes, but you also got on that thing that tells the doctor how much we weigh.

I had no choice.  She made me do it.

Yes, but you’re way too chunky now and Mom said we can’t have that many carburetors in our meals now.  Besides, we don’t get our crunchy food now.  I like the canned food, but once the gravy is all licked off, I’m left with yuk!

imageedit_11_7620639123

I know what you mean.  I like the gravy but I have to be really hungry to eat the rest of that stuff.  I want our crunchy stuff back.  But Mom’s not making us cut back on carburetors.  We’re cutting back on carbs.

Well, if you didn’t weigh 23 1/2 pounds, we could have crunchy stuff with all those carb things!

Oh sure, blame it all on me.  Seems the doctor lady said you were a little too chunky for your own good, too.

imageedit_9_4292347420

Do you think the outdoor cat can order some food for us?

He looks like he’s on Mom’s side so he probably won’t do it.

imageedit_7_8876275077

Fine!  I’ll just chew on my carrot and pretend it’s crunchy good stuff with carbs.

Mom got so excited about her roses that she forgot yesterday was my birthday!  I’m two years old now!!!  Where has the time gone?

Mostly sleeping, Steinbeck.  You pretty much napped your two years away.

Did not!  I played with the red dot.  I chased the jingly balls.  I explored outside.  I looked out the windows.  I chased you around the house.  I jumped up on Mom’s lap for some purr time.  I ate.  I ran up and down the stairs.  I was a busy boy.

OK…..but during that running around time, you disturbed MY naps.

So that’s why you’re so grumpy?  Come on, let’s sing the birthday song.

Happy Catnip Day to me……..Happy New Toys Day to me….Happy Lots of Treats Day to meeeeeeeeee………Happy Two Years Old to ME!!!

Caturday Art

Mom got all excited ‘cuz her special roses are blooming.  So, she took a perfectly normal picture of me and added some animation to it.  I hope you like it.  I feel kind of silly being turned into a flower, but you know Mom!
