We wanted to make sure that we remembered to say Happy Valentine’s Day to Mom, so we chose one of our pictures where we are actually cuddling.  We wanted to let Mom know how much we love her and how much we appreciate the fact that she rescued us and gave us such a good home.

We realize there are fur people and humans out there that don’t have homes and don’t think they have someone to love them.  That’s sad.

We want everyone to feel loved ‘cuz everyone is special, whether you have fur, fins, feathers or skin.

So……..we decorated this picture just for you, Mom.  We also wanted to share our love with our readers, ‘cuz they mean lots to us.  We really appreciate how they join us in our adventures and send us notes and things.  We consider ourselves to be very lucky.

Please tell your fur people and your human friends and family how much they mean to you and do it every day….not just today.

Yesterday Mom was coming in the door and all of a sudden she was yelling, “Ouch!” and kind of hopping around.

Can I have it now

We had been busy playing together and stopped to see what Mom was doing.

We are totally innocent.  We had nothing to do with what happened to Mom.

I didn’t trip her.

I didn’t bite her.

She did it all on her own.

Here’s a picture of her Valentine’s Toe.  See all the pretty colors?  There’s red and pink and purple.

toe

She had a little trouble  walking in the door.  She didn’t lift her foot high enough and smashed her toe into the door sill.  She wasn’t happy with herself at all!!  We may have to teach her to walk.

But we didn’t do it and we’re so glad we’re innocent.

But we do feel bad for Mom so we’ve been giving her extra cuddles.

Has your human ever had a Valentine’s Toe???

Steinbeck Thinking

So where are the 52 bowls of soup?

What on earth are you talking about?

Haven’t you been listening to Mom?  She was talking about 52 bowls of soup all weekend.  Even those humans on that TV thing were talking about it.  I want to know where those bowls of soup are ‘cuz I’m really interested.

bandw selfieOh for Pete’s sake…….

Who’s Pete?

Steinbeck, stop babbling and listen.  Mom wasn’t talking about 52 bowls of soup.  She was talking about Super Bowl 52. It was the big football game where the humans chase a strangely-shaped ball on the grass.  They played the game here and that’s why everyone was talking about it.

It doesn’t have anything to do with bowls of soup?

No.

OK……I’m no longer interested.

It’s been cold and snowy here this week so Mom thought our Caturday Art should show some warmth.

Here’s the picture she started with:

Brotherly Love

We were actually kind of cuddling together and Mom caught us.  Then she turned the picture into this:

Why is purple gone?

Remember that football game Mom was watching on Sunday?

She turned it off.

That’s ‘cuz she got tired of seeing her team lose.

So why is white such a big thing now?

Have you looked outside?

snowstorm1 - Copy

Wow!!!  Did that happen while I was taking a nap?  How will the birds find their food?

snowstorm2

Those deep ruts are from Mom’s car when she barreled into the driveway after work.

snowstorm3 - CopyLook!  I can see the snow falling!

snowstorm4 - Copy

I think that bush looks lots prettier with all that white stuff on it.

snowstorm6

Wow!  Our back yard is gone!  It’s all covered in white.

snowstorm7

Here’s why Mom’s not letting us out on the deck.  Look at all that snow that she stumbled through.  We don’t want our paws getting into that!!

snowstorm8

Good thing Mom got more wood delivered on Saturday.

Too bad nobody can see it now!

snowstorm5

Mom says this is her favorite picture.  She said the snow is a nuisance and driving is impossible, but the fluffy white makes everything look so festive.

We hope you enjoyed our snowstorm!

Readers, we have a problem.

Mom has gone purple and we can’t stop her.

I guess we better explain.  Mom loves to watch this game called football.  It’s a game for humans but we think it looks very much like us when we are wrestling.

Yeah…..so why does Mom tell us not to wrestle???

It’s a human thing.  Anyway, she loves her Vikings and starts yelling and jumping around whenever she watches one of their games.

You should have seen her last Sunday.  She was pacing and snorting and holding her breath…….

……..then she was screaming and bouncing all over the place!!  She woke me up from my nap and didn’t even apologize.

Now tonight she got hold of a couple of our pictures and look what she did!

imageedit_15_7538394015

imageedit_18_2905594784

You can’t even tell it’s us!!!  I think she’s gone off the edge for sure.

From the Mom:  Sorry, but I’m going to be a little purple crazy a bit longer.  I’m with all the other great Minnesota Vikings fans who are still stunned by the major miracle this past Sunday and praying for another one this coming Sunday.  This team has fought long and hard and I’m purple through and through.  Hemingway and Steinbeck, you may want to go into the bedroom next Sunday when the game’s on.

Mom was feeling creative so she took one of our pictures where we were actually wrestling and she changed it all up using LunaPic.

We were kind of bored ‘cuz we had to stay inside.  Mom said it was way too cold and even she wasn’t going outside today.  So, we did what boys do?  We wrestled!

Here’s the original photo.  Notice that I look a little upset that Mom broke up our wrestling match to take a picture?

The Boys 2018

This is what the picture turned out like after Mom messed around with it.  We think it looks pretty cool!  Thanks, Mom!

We spent all day waiting for Mom to get home.

Steinbeck, you were sleeping most of the time.

That’s how I do my best waiting!

Mom finally got home and gave us supper.

That’s why we wanted her home.  Oh……..and of course we wanted to see her, too.

Black and white with red

Then we started playing.  At least I started playing.  I found this red feathery thing and I thought it looked so neat against my white and black furs.  Notice how white my fluffy tummy is?  Steinbeck doesn’t have a white tummy.  That’s how you can tell us apart.  MOL!!!

patiently waiting

That’s a nice toy you have there, Hemingway.  Are you going to let me play with it?

Will you shareSteinbeck, can’t you go find your own toy?  Why do you have to have mine?  (By the way readers, do you notice that Steinbeck doesn’t have a white tummy?)

Can I have it now

But see how nice it looks with my furs?  It really blends in.  Please let me play.

sharing is fun

Fine.  I know Mom likes us to share and play nice.  We should do it for her and show our readers that we do get along.

Thanks, Hemingway!

Mystery Guest

So, Mystery Guest, are you going to stay here forever?  Mom set you up and I just want to know why you’re taking up that spot.  You do realize that you’re mighty close to our scratching post.  I better not catch you using it!  What are all those lights and beeping noises you make?  Why do you sometimes chase me around the house?  You don’t know where my food dish is, do you?  You won’t get into my toys, will you?

imageedit_20_9461957979

Steinbeck……….that’s not a mystery guest!  That was a Christmas present for Mom.  It’s a vacuum cleaner but it’s much quieter than the big one.  But you don’t need to sit there all the time talking to it.  You should leave it alone.

I know, but it follows me around!

That’s probably ‘cuz you’re a mess!

From the Mom:  Yes, I got a robotic vacuum cleaner for Christmas and it’s great.  The boys were very confused the first time it started running around on its own.  However, since it doesn’t make as much noise as the big one, they didn’t feel the need to hide.  No, I won’t encourage them to ride it.  They are both big boys so it might be too hard on the poor “Mystery Guest”.  I’m sure there will be more “tails” regarding this new guest.

Mom says we should let you know that we survived the holidays and we’re ready for 2018.

Hemingway and wrapping

Well, I for one had to work very hard!  I turned 8 years old on December 24th so of course I had to check on all the presents.  Steinbeck was really slow about getting involved in all the mayhem but once he discovered that we had a Bolt, he got very excited chasing the red dot all around.

Big Sleep 2018

This is my safe place.  I’m way up on top of the computer desk so I can supervise Mom as she works on our blog.  Mom always smiles when she sees me up here ‘cuz she said Shakespeare used to sit up there all the time, too.

Tired Boy

Well, it was hard work turning eight so I had to get my rest in when I could.

My Big Box

Mom…is this box for me?  How do I get in it?  Is there a special door?

From the Mom:  Special greetings to all our friends!  We hope 2018 will be a special one for all of you and that it will be a year filled with kindness, love and peace instead of hatred, crimes and cruelty.  The boys had a fun time exploring new toys and new treats.  They’ve been doing lots of napping lately.  So have I!!  It’s been really cold and we do have snow on the ground but not much.  I hate to think of heading back to work tomorrow ‘cuz I know the boys will be at home sleeping in sun puddles.  Oh well….I guess someone had to pay for their food!  I hope to do a better job of sending you updates and funny stories in 2018.  Sometimes it gets really hard working full time and trying to get all the fun things done.  Thanks for following us!!
