The Boys 2018

Why are you so cranky, Steinbeck.

imageedit_1_6141723670

I’m not cranky.  See, I’m smiling.

imageedit_3_2628078833

That doesn’t look like  a real smile.  It looks like you’re forcing it.  In fact, you look kind of silly.  MOL!!!

Man…….you just won’t leave me alone, will you?  I think I’ll talk to our readers instead.  Guess what I heard Mom say.  She said she was going to have to shrink me.

imageedit_7_2380260162

Does this grass make me look too big?

 

imageedit_3_4830874577

I can still fit between the doors so I don’t need anyone shrinking me.

Oh Steinbeck, you still have so much to learn.  Mom isn’t trying to shrink you.  She said she was going to take you to a shrink if you didn’t stop being Mr. Cranky Pants.  A shrink is a doctor who can figure out what’s going on in your little cat brain.

Nobody’s touching my cat brain!  I’ll stop being Mr. Cranky Pants if everyone stops picking on me.   And Mom……………you’re still not going to shrink me.

So, I’m sitting out here trying to figure out what Mom’s problem is!  By the way, don’t I look angelic and adorable?  Anyway, Mom told me she’s tired of my jungle jeans.  Mom!  I don’t wear jeans!!  Have you ever seen me in any kind of jeans??  And what are jungle jeans?  I have never seen them.

All of this is because the other night Mom was in the house and Hemingway and I were out in the back yard patrolling, watching and looking for our doggie friend neighbors.  Suddenly I saw something that I knew I had to chase.  I ran and ran and then went into the house to show Mom my trophy.  Mom was not impressed.

What did I have?  I had a bunny in my mouth.  It wasn’t a baby bunny.  Mom figures it was like a preteen bunny, whatever that means.  I was so proud of my catch but Mom took it away from me and I never saw the bunny again.

Readers, I had heard on the news around here that our area is being overrun with bunnies.  I was just trying to help.  I didn’t know Mom would be sad.  I thought she would be proud of me.  She sat me down and had a long talk about not killing bunnies and birds and squirrels and things.  Then she hugged me and mumbled something about jungle jeans.

If I ever find those jungle jeans that Mom says I have, I’m going to throw them out!!!

Mom has taught us to share our toys…..

……but respect the “right of ownership” when one of us is playing with a certain toy.

Mom has taught us to share all the favorite sleeping spots in the house….

……..but to respect the “right of ownership” when one of us is asleep in one of those favorite spots.

Mom has tried to teach us not to eat each other’s food…

…or try to steal food off Mom’s plate.  (She readily admits that she has failed at this when it comes to Hemingway.)

We just figure that’s the way it’s supposed to be in the world.

Imagine our surprise when we both looked outside……

…….and saw this thief eating the bird seed!

What??? You don't think I'm a bird???

What??? You don’t think I’m a bird???

I wish Mom would stop with the flashy box when I’m just lying around thinking.  What am I thinking?  Well, I’m thinking that Hemingway should clean up the black fur he leaves around the house so I don’t have to lie on it and try to cover it up.  If Mom sees it, she gets that noisy machine out!

P1050137

I’m wishing Mom wouldn’t take pictures of me when I’m taking a bath.  If you look closely, you can see what I really think of the whole situation……..including what Shakespeare said about me leaving my fur all over the house!

Mom gets a little upset with us ‘cuz she can’t have fresh-cut flowers in the house.

We like to pull them out of the water.

Well, and sometimes we accidentally knock the vase over and water goes running all over the place!

We try to soak it up with our tails so Mom won’t know, but somehow she always knows!

That’s a Mom for you!

So, she took us around the yard and showed us that we have our very own flowers!

Mr. HI biscus Shakespeare

Mr. HI biscus Shakespeare

Mom calls this one a HI biscus.  She’s always saying “HI” to it when it blooms.

Mr. Hemingway Petunias

I like mine ‘cuz it’s really big.

Well, I like mine ‘cuz there’s lots of them!

Mom says a new kitty has moved in with us.

She said his name is “NotMe Kitty”.

I sure haven’t seen him anywhere.  Have you seen him, Shakespeare?

Nope.  I’ve looked all over and I can’t find him.

P1040485

Boys, who dragged all the toys and put them on my bed?

“NOTME”

P1040465

Boys, who pulled all the toys out of the basket and put them by the door?

“NOTME”

That Mr. NotMe Kitty sure enough better not eat our food!!!

He also better not sit on Mom’s lap ‘cuz that’s my spot!!

Mom………..people are going to start thinking that this is all we do!

Copy of P1030651

Actually, we do a lot of this.  We play for a bit and then we get distracted by birds!

Copy of P1020967

Don’t forget that we do a lot of this.

Shakespeare, nobody can forget that you do lots of eating!

P1040470

And we also do lots of waiting for Mom to pick the catnip and bring it in for us!

We just wanted to let you readers know that in spite of Mom not turning on the computer for us, we are doing fine.  Mom says she is too tired when she gets home from that work thing so she doesn’t let us play on the computer.

Maybe we should get Mom away from that work thing!

Then how could she afford treats, food and toys for us?

Never mind.  Keep going to that work thing, Mom!!!

We got all excited ‘cuz Mom said we could go outside this morning.

We should have known something was up ‘cuz she was kind of giggling like humans do.

I'm not so sure about this.

The white is back.  It's so white.

Let me in right now and quit playing games!

This is what Mom and I saw when we went looking for Hemingway:

hemingway hidesMom says Hemingway needs hiding lessons!

I do not!!!  I left my tail out on purpose ‘cuz it’s so beautiful.

Whatever.  Mom says she wants to share a picture she took of the moon the other night with our readers.  Is it okay if she posts it on our blog?

I don’t care.  Leave me alone.  I’m trying to take a nap.

Whatever.

The Moom Dec 6By the way, we were both asleep when she took that picture.  We don’t understand why she wanted to go out in the cold and dark just to use that flashy box.  She always tells us that we can’t go out in the cold and dark.

It’s a human thing!
