Archive for the ‘Hemingway and Steinbeck’ Category

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!

This is the picture Mom started out with.

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.

The look

Steinbeck, what are you doing?

Am Not

Nothing.

You aren’t messing with that plant, are you?

Just Looking

Nope, I was just rearranging some of the leaves and checking to see if it needs water.

Mom told you to leave that plant alone.

So Big

I’m just showing her my tiger pose and not messing with the plant.

Now I’ve heard everything.

Mom says I’m a furry, four-footed wrecking ball.  What does she mean by that, Hemingway?

Here, I found a picture on the internet thingy.

Who Me

Hey….I don’t look like that!  I do love to play with balls, though.  So do you.Wait a minute!!!  Did you do something to this picture of me?  I look like I weigh a million pounds!!!

Never mind your fluffy tummy.  We all know you love food.  Anyway, Mom calls you a wrecking ball ‘cuz you seem to get into EVERYTHING.

So do you!

I’ve grown up a little so I don’t knock everything off the shelves, tables, desks and bookcases.  Even last night you managed to knock down  a round candle and you were chasing it all over the house.

It was fun!

You also do lots of exploring, as evidenced in the following photo:

Kitty Wash I was just checking things out.  By the way, is this a Kitty Wash machine?  There’s plenty of room for even you!

Steinbeck, get out of there!

Statue

Nobody can see me.  I’m a lamp with a colorful lampshade!

Steinbeck, want to know another way you are a wrecking ball?  You wreck all my peaceful time.Tussle

But you love me!  Besides, this is good exercise for both of us.  Mom said you were supposed to slim down so I’m just helping!

Mom got this idea from our dear friends, the Colehaus Cats.  Their ginger kitties showed off their pretty furs in black and white.  I just had to do the same thing!!!  Frankly, I like my ginger furs better, but that’s just me.imageedit_5_8521964285

I had to try this out as well, but my furs are just meant to be black so I’m sticking with that.  My black furs make me look regal.

What can we say?  It’s Monday night and Mom was bored.

Mom said that I am “curiosity catified”.  I have no idea what she means.

She means you are nosy and into everything.

Well…………

We have so much work to do on weekends.  We don’t think humans understand how hard it is on us.

For one thing, there’s the matter of our meals.  They are very important to us……….especially me!

You see, during the week Mom’s brother gets up first and he always feeds us.  As soon as we hear his door open, we go rushing out to the kitchen.  That’s the time we are supposed to have our breakfast.

Mom doesn’t get it on weekends.  She thinks it’s just fine for her to sleep in and not give us breakfast on our time.

Sometimes she fools us and gets up real early and heads out her door.  But then she turns around and runs back in, leaving us shut out of her room.  We have to try our best meowing and scratching at the door and even sometimes putting our paws under the door to see if we can wake her up.

People, please don’t worry ‘cuz we always get our breakfast.

Then there’s all the activity during the day.  Mom seems to think it’s just fine to run that noisy machine and dust and move things around.

Doesn’t she realize that we need our rest.

After all, it was lots of work getting her to wake up in the first place.

We still haven’t trained her about our evening meal.  if she’s home, there’s no reason she can’t give it to us a little early.  We’re working on training her.

We start doing naughty things to get her attention and then she gives up and fixes us our supper.

All that work on the weekends.

No wonder we’re exhausted!
