Where’s the snow?  It’s cold out there but there’s no snow.  That seems like such a waste of cold.  Aren’t we supposed to be conserving or something?  We have no snow and it’s cold.  That’s not conserving in my mind.  Besides, there’s not even any sun!!!  If we can’t have snow, can we at least have sun?

imageedit_4_8595611605

Steinbeck, will you quit your grumbling and watch for the squirrels, bunnies and birds?  With all the racket you’re making about no snow, they’re going to get scared and stay away.

imageedit_6_8637200601

Fine, maybe I’ll go help Mom make the bed.  I know she can’t do it without my help.

imageedit_8_7222167562

Steinbeck, come look.  The squirrel is hanging upside down from the bird feeder again.

Hemingway, it’s hard to tell, but he’s looking right at me!

imageedit_11_5363768562

Did that make you forget about the fact we have cold and no snow.

Not really.  But at least it gave me something else to do.  Besides, I found my kicky-throw-in-the-air toy and that always makes me happy.

Sigh…….It’s a good thing Mom had today off from work.  I get so tired taking care of this little one!

It’s Sunday and at least the sun is shining.  However, if you look at my selfie, you probably won’t see happy eyes.  That’s because it’s COLD!!!  We were even in the hole when it came to temperatures this morning.  I don’t know who we were supposed to pay, but I sure hope someone pays soon so we can get some temperatures back!

imageedit_2_5063134100

Mom is staying inside the rest of the day and she’ll probably be reading so that means I can curl up by her and nap.  Steinbeck will probably do the same thing once he gets out of the sun puddle.

We both hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  If you have any extra temperatures, don’t forget to send them to us.  MOL!!!

Steinbeck, what are you doing?  Do you belong up there?

I belong everywhere!  Besides, I’m admiring the lovely picture Mom has of me on her puter.  I sure was adorable when I was little!!!   I’m also trying to fix things ‘cuz Mom told a big fat white lie!!

What are you talking about?

Remember how she said that after the holidays she would have more time so we could chat with our friends and tell them about our adventures?

Now that you mention it, I do remember something about that.  However, I haven’t noticed that we’ve been able to post anything on our blog lately.

She hasn’t even turned the computer on for us!!  Harumph!!!

Well, she has been sort of….kind of…..busy…..  Wait a minute……….she’s been taking naps with me!  She did tell a big fat lie.

See?  So, I’m trying to figure out the computer so we can go ahead and tell the world about her.

Now Steinbeck, is that the best thing to do?  Remember all the naughty things you and I have done?  Does Mom go and rat on us………

RAT?????????????

Slow down.  Does Mom go and tell on us to all our readers?

Sometimes, but it’s usually when it’s something silly like when you try to hide and leave your tail sticking out for the world to see.

imageedit_2_7058834780

But she doesn’t really tell our readers about the bad things like when I broke the lamp shade, or we both ate all the treats.  She lets the readers think we are little angels with only a few tarnished places on our halos.

Are you saying that I shouldn’t tell the readers that Mom told a big fat white lie?

Probably not.

Can I say she told a big fat “Tuxedo lie”?  MOL!!!!

Nope, but I’ll tell everyone she told a big fat “Ginger lie”.  MOL!!  MOL!!!

the boys being good

Happy New Year, Readers!

Glad to see you made it into 2019. I had no idea we were going from one year to another.

I knew because Mom put a new cat calendar on the wall. She said the calendar is kind of sad this time ‘cuz it’s the last time she’ll get one from her friend. She got a call today and was told he passed away last night. Mom says it really puts a damper on celebrating a new year.

However, Mom also said that we have no known schedule that tells us exactly how long we have on this side of The Rainbow Bridge, and that goes for us fur people as well.

We don’t mean to be all down and sad today, but we do have to face facts. People and fur people are still hurting. There’s fighting, even between me and Steinbeck.

But that’s not real fighting. I just like to torment you to get your attention.

MOL!!! I know that. But there is sadness in the world and we can choose to focus on it, or be thankful for each moment we get and try to spread happiness.

I like that option. Each day of cold snowy weather gets us closer to summer when the catnip will be growing again.

Yes, and each smile you give to someone else, gets passed along to others.

Don’t forget hugs and scritches.

Right you are. See, that’s focusing on good things that make us happy. If we’re happy, it will spill over onto others and they will be happy.

Mom doesn’t like it when I spill things.

That’s not what I mean. This is something you would like to spill. It’s like looking outside, seeing the sunshine bouncing off the winter landscape, and being thankful you’re inside by the fire. It’s that warm cozy feeling you like to share with others.

Mom, we’re sorry you lost your friend. Maybe he’ll find Shakespeare and tell him hi.

For now, we’ll soak up the sunshine and let it spill all over the place and maybe some of it will reach you, dear readers.  May 2019 be gentle and kind to all of you.

I love how the sun warms my tummy.

I love how the sun warms my furs.

Hi, Readers!  Mom said I could be the star of the last 2018 selfie.  Of course she played around with it, but I did approve.

Here’s what she started out with.  Of course this was taken when things were still green outside.  Now it’s pretty much brown with some white.  I don’t like going outside now.

imageedit_8_9965602923

This is what Mom turned my selfie into:

imageedit_5_5047752082

I told her I really liked it ‘cuz it looked like I was surrounded by New Year’s fireworks.  My long whiskers really stand out!  I like to use those whiskers to tickle Mom’s face when I kiss the top of her nose.  MOL!!!

Hi, Readers!  Today is my ninth birthday.  That’s almost two paws!!!  Mom says the time has gone really fast and she can’t imagine what it was like before she adopted me.

imageedit_3_2628078833

I think I look quite distinguished for being almost two paws old.  I keep my tuxedo nice and clean for all the ladies.

imageedit_7_2370219767

I told Mom that I was sure there were some things in this bag that were for me.  I didn’t think I should have to share with Steinbeck, but Mom reminded me that we always share ‘cuz that’s the nice thing to do.  Well, what Mom doesn’t know is that Steinbeck and I got into this package last night while everyone was sleeping and we helped ourselves to some treats.

imageedit_5_2011737972

Mom, if you just move this particular thing over just a little, you can see where the treats were.  Steinbeck and I had a nice time enjoying the treats.  It was our own little private party to celebrate me getting older.

imageedit_1_6141723670

I’m sooooooooooo glad Hemingway had a birthday so we could get extra treats.  Don’t I look cute when I’m smiling innocently???

So, the other night we were all relaxing, watching a Hallmark movie.  We had all had a good supper and it was time to relax.  Suddenly there was a knock at the door.  I took off and hid under the couch.

I stayed out where the action was and got a really big surprise!

imageedit_3_3512812428

Look at that little black thing!  My head is about as big as he is!  Mom said his name is Ozzy and he’s my new cousin.  We watched each other and once when we got close we made some spitting sounds and played “slappy paws” but we didn’t chase each other.  I just let Ozzy explore the house and watched him to make sure he didn’t take any of our toys.

I stayed under the couch and wanted nothing to do with meeting this new cousin.  I figure Hemingway will protect me in situations like this.

imageedit_1_8401402685

Here’s a close-up of the little terror.  Notice that bit of paint on his right ear?  He was helping his “dad”  kind of picked up a souvenir.  Mom says he’s still really young and has lots to learn.  I think he was pretty well-behaved considering he was in a strange house.  I guess I’ll accept him.

I’m going to stay under the couch until he’s gone.  Can you make sure to slide my food dish under the couch?

Greetings all!  I finally got my human to turn on the puter for us so we could send all of you a little note.  Mom said that I could do the Caturday Art today so here goes:

imageedit_7_8898547090

Notice that I even got my teddy bear in the picture?

We hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.  Don’t forget to check out the other Caturday Art pictures our friends have done.

Hemingway!!!  Come look!!!  The angels were baking and they spilled flour all over the place!!

Footprints

That’s not flour.  It’s snow.

Why can’t it be flour?  Wouldn’t the humans….especially Mom….be happier if it was flour?

Well, I think cleaning up flour might be more difficult.  If it rained, then the flour would turn into a sticky, icky mess.  With snow the humans just have to wait about six months and it’s all melted.

Six months?????  That’s forever in cat time.

Mom says it’s forever in human time too, when it comes to snow.

Well, I’m just going to believe that’s flour and that the angels are busy making me catnip cakes and pies.

We had a visitor today.  He came to help himself to leftover Turkey Day food that the birds didn’t finish.  We thought he could do the selfie today.

imageedit_10_8499904707

We hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day.  We had lots of fun and we even got some turkey.

That was turkey???  I ate a bird????  Why didn’t someone tell me?

Steinbeck, why are you so confused?

I think I swallowed a feather.
