Mom was super excited tonight when she got home!  She doesn’t have to set her alarm tomorrow morning.

Don’t worry, readers……we will make sure she gets up extra early to feed us.

Don’t you mean that you’ll wake up Mom?  You’re the one who always has to try and wake her up around 4am.

Well, you walk all over her in the middle of the night purring.  Anyway, after supper tonight Mom took us both outside for some brushing.

I got brave and even walked under the deck when Mom wasn’t looking!  I just had to see what was under there ‘cuz Hemingway kept checking things out.  Know what I found?  Lots of dirt and stuff.  So much for the brushing, Mom!

I’ms so excited that it’s Friday and I just can’t keep from jumping around!! Even this box can’t keep me still.

Can you believe I have to live with this???

I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday night.

We should be dancing!!

Steinbeck, you don’t know how to dance.  All you do is run around.

So?  It’s Friday night and I’m HAPPY!!!

We were calmly blogging away, sharing pictures with our friends and chatting about the crazy things humans do.

Then it was dead silence.  Nobody heard from us.  Where did we go?

We didn’t go anywhere, but Mom sure did.  She had a super busy week (or so she says) and she didn’t remember to turn the puter on for us.   You just can’t count on humans.

Mom said she had to practice singing again.  Won’t she ever get it right?  She has been practicing and practicing for years and they still make her practice more.  I would think they would have given up on her by now.

I was busy exploring things and getting into trouble because I had too much time on my paws.  However, there was one day I was a little angel.  That was on Good Friday.  I had no idea what that day was but I figured it was the one day of the year I was supposed to be good.  I did my part and now I’m ready for mischief!

Mom………..I think I hear some mischief calling my name outside.

Steinbeck, look at how big your tummy is!

MOM……….Hemingway is picking on me again!!!!

What?????  I didn’t do anything.

From the Mom:  Sorry we’ve been missing, but things got a little hectic for me.  Obviously the boys found stuff to do.  We all had a very nice Easter and they got to spend some time outside.  Hopefully we’ll be able to meet you in the blogging world more often now!  I’ll close this with one of my favorite pictures of Steinbeck.

It’s a lovely spring day here.  While Mom was at that working place, Hemingway and I just lounged around admiring our toes!

Here’s a picture of the front of my toes.  See that chewed spot by my foot?  I was trying to hide that.  Mom said that’s some of my beaver-wanna-be work.  She says I’m really good at it.

Here’s my cute pink foot pad.  See the little tufts of fur?

Here are my pink toes with my fluffy tail and more toe tufts.

Good grief, Steinbeck.  Do you really think our readers are interested in your body parts?

M…O….M!!!!  Steinbeck is sticking out his tongue again!!!

Mom said we could take our selfie today so we did.

April Selfie

She thought we did a great job of posing together.  It was one of those rare times when Steinbeck wasn’t chasing me!

Mom added the frame from piZap and made it all pretty.

I find it rather interesting that Steinbeck often shows so many characteristics of Angel Shakespeare.  Of course Steinbeck is very much his own cat, but every now and then a little Shakespeare comes out.  I love it!

Here’s an example.  Both of them selected the top of the computer desk as one of their favorite spots for watching the world and napping.  

Here’s Angel Shakespeare taking a nap:

Now here’s Steinbeck in the same spot:

Computer Cat

Hemingway likes to get up there, too.  However, he doesn’t do the “ginger pose”.  He has his own way of sitting up there.

My boys!

What a beautiful day!!!

Mom had to go to that work place but we spent the day looking out the windows at the sunshine, the birds, and the squirrels.

Mom said she looked out the window lots today, too.

She said she wanted to be home with us so we could all play outside!

Mom finally got home, put Steinbeck’s vest on him and we all went outside in the warm air.

I didn’t stay outside very long ‘cuz there were all sorts of noises and I got a little scared.

I keep telling you to stick by me and I’ll protect you.

I know, but I’m still a kitten and there’s just too much stuff happening.  If I’m not making the noise, I tend to get a little scared.  However, I did go out for a little bit and Mom even brushed me.

Mom brushed me lots and lots.  She keeps saying that she gets enough fur off me to make another kitty but I haven’t seen her do that yet!

Mom took some pictures for everyone to see.

Cuter than Copper

I stopped to talk to the Copper Kitty and I decided that I’m lots cuter than he is. Besides, I get to sleep in a warm bed and he has to stay outside.

It's Noisy Outside

Mom says our readers never get to see me with my eyes open. She took this picture while I was inside and she was outside. She says I have very pretty eyes, but whenever I see the flashy box, I close my eyes. Mom fooled me this time!

From the Mom: 

I joined the Kickstart Fund for these beautiful pieces of “furniture” last year.  I was hoping the boys would get this for Christmas.  However, there were production problems and all sorts of other things, but the makers kept working and I finally got this today.  It is from Feline Innovations and it’s great. (I did not get paid to endorse their product.  I just really like it.)   Of course my big boys are too big for the hammock, but they still found ways to use it.  Both of them had more fun investigating and claiming ownership.  Of course we had some slappy paw dances going on as well.   Enjoy the pictures of Hemingway and Steinbeck and their “new toy”.

Yesterday morning I had eaten a good breakfast, made sure all my furs were in place, settled down in a comfortable position to wait for Mom to leave for work, when……….

Here I am!  Can I lie down by you?  Can we measure and see who’s longer?  Did you enjoy breakfast?  Is Mom going to that work thing again?  What are we going to do all day?  Are you listening to me?

Brotherly Love

Humans, do you see him over there? He’s right next to me!! He’s pretending to be good but he just asked elebenty billion questions!

Mom!!!  Hemingway is ignoring me!!   Again!!!!!

Are You There

Hemingway! Pay attention to me!!!

Me and My Toys

At least my toys will listen to me. I love my toys!!!

This is the picture Mom started out with.

DSC_0092

Steinbeck was afraid I wasn’t getting the top of my head clean.

You weren’t!  I had to help you.

This is what Mom did with the picture.The boys

She used the Illusion effect from Lunapic and the ripped paper border from Pixlr Express.  We told her we like it.

I think it makes my furs look really regal! And you can even see my little pink tongue.
