Mom was in a goofy mood so we let her go ahead and post this selfie.

kitty in the plant

This is the friendly kitty who sits in the plant.  Mom has colored lights in the plant so the kitty gets to enjoy all those pretty colors.  In the warm weather, the kitty and the plant are outside and we pretty much ignore him.

However, when it started getting colder Mom brought the kitty and the plant inside and I had to have a long conversation with the kitty.  I wanted to make sure he wasn’t going to play with any of my toys or eat any of my food and treats.

I just looked at the kitty and said, “Good luck.”

We’re part of a fun blog hop today so please check out our other friends.

Steinbeck was really hungry.  He was wandering around the house telling anyone who would listen.I'm going to keep singing the song of my people

Grocery Inspectors

So I went shopping and got a new kind of cat food.  Steinbeck wanted to check it out and make sure I got something good.

OH NO!!!!!!  Look what happened…………

He grew into a gigantic lion!!!!

Mom, that’s a mighty big tale you’re telling.  Our readers are going to think you’ve lost your mind.  We already know you have but we were trying to keep it from them.  MOL!

Well, the pictures of the lion are real.  That was something delivered to our warehouse at work today for storage .  The lion was in a large crate and completely covered with plastic wrap so it was hard to get good pictures of it.  I would have loved to see that lion running free in the jungle instead of on display that way.  However, it was incredibly fascinating to look up close and personal at that magnificent cat.  What a unique opportunity for us at work today.

You didn’t try to bring it home, did you????

……….and we got presents!!!!

Steinbeck and Cat Mat 3

This is my pretty new present.  It’s a Cat Mat by Mildred.  It’s round and has all sorts of pretty colors.

This is my Cat Mat.  It is rectangular and the red shows off my Tuxedo furs.

Steinbeck and Red Cat Mat 1

Look……….it shows off my ginger furs.

Steinbeck get off of there!

Hemingway and Cat Mat 1

This is mine and I love it.  It’s so soft.  It’s like I’m resting on a cloud.

Steinbeck and Cat Mat 2

Mine is really soft, too.  It’s like I’m in the middle of a rainbow.

Hemingway and Cat Mat 3

I even like to hide under mine!

Thanks, Mom!

Did you bring some treats for us, too?

From the Mom:  The Cat Mats by Mildred are made by a friend of mine.  Mildred’s human can do an amazing job of knitting.  He has done so many different things for friends and family.  We were talking one day and I said it would be neat to have a little blankie for cats out of some of the soft yarn he has.  Instantly the idea became Cat Mats by Mildred and he gave me samples for Hemingway and Steinbeck.  Mildred is his cat and she is a Princess.  Her Cat Mat is pink with some jewels.  If anyone is interested in a Cat Mat, contact me and I will put you in touch with Mildred’s human.  He’s just starting this and could do different colors,shapes and sizes.

Mom, is this Snowvember now?  Those people on TV who point at maps and numbers and things promised there was going to be snow today.  I figured when I woke up from my nap this afternoon, it would look like this outside:

Snow 2016

This is what Snowvember looked like last year.  It was my first Snowvember so I thought it would always be like that this time of year.

You were wrong.

Well, Hemingway, so were those weather people on TV.  I thought humans weren’t supposed to lie to fur people.

No Snow

Just look at this, weather humans.  Do you see any snow at all by my feet?  You promised snow for today.  What happened???

imageedit_9_3571163348

This is what I should look like today.  My fur should be all white and the ground should be white and there should be little white things falling from the sky.  When the weather humans say there’s going to be snow…….there better be snow!!! 

Why 

 

Oh mighty weather humans, do you see what you’ve done?  You have made it impossible for me to live with this cranky orange cat who thinks it’s Snowvember.  Mom doesn’t want snow so I don’t understand why Steinbeck wants it.  Is there any hope for me to have a peaceful life???  Oh, and can you take his soap box away from him?  Thank you very much.

Last year I was just a little kitten and didn’t really understand why all those little humans came knocking at our door, asking for candy.  I even wondered if kitties went door to door asking for catnip.

You were pretty confused……in fact, you still are.

No, I’m a big kitty now and I know lots of stuff so I’ll be brave and maybe even look out the window.

I’ll meet you under the bed.  I don’t think you’ll be able to look out the window.

You mean we’re both going to be scared?

Well, there will be more noise than usual and Mom will constantly be going to the door.  I don’t think we’ll be able to nap comfortably.

I sure hope Mom doesn’t forget to give us our treats!

Readers, we had Mom help us with a couple of Halloween pictures for you to enjoy.

Steinbeck Fangs

If you look carefully, you can see my fangs!

Hemingway Halloween

I went for a calmer, more mosaic look this year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Hey……Halloween must be for US!  Look at the colors……..orange and black…….just like us!!

Big stack of wood

First of all Mom……you focused on the wood and not on me.  Second of all….what’s with all the wood?  You know how I love to chew on wood and this is way more than I can chew!

I found a secret hall

Look!  There’s a little hallway here.  I have a new hidey spot!!

Steinbeck and his wood

MOM!!!  Don’t let Hemingway see my new hidey spot.  Did you just take a picture of it?  Are you going to post it on that blogosphere place?  Now everyone’s going to know where my new hidey space is!

My eyes look like leaves

What hidey spot?  I was busy noticing how the leaves seem to match my eyes!  Steinbeck….leave that wood alone!

Mom seems to love to get the flashy box out when we’re trying to sleep.  She has this idea that we get in really cute positions and she wants to remember them.

Mom, can’t you just look at us and keep that memory in a special box in your brain?  I really don’t like the flashy box that much.

DSC_0894

This particular time we were just taking a nap on the couch and when Mom spotted us we just knew she was going for the flashy box.

Mom said she had to take the picture to prove to our readers that we really do get along and like each other.

Readers, you already knew that………right?  Mom didn’t have to flashy box us.

DSC_0889

Another thing Mom laughs about is all the little noises that I make when I’m sleeping.  She says Hemingway doesn’t do it, but I do.  I sigh and kind of moan and make little sounds like I’m trying to talk in my sleep.

Are you sure you aren’t snoring?

No way!!!  Mom says I’m making cute noises.

DSC_0892

Mom!!!!  Enough with the flashy box.  I’m trying to explain things.

bandw selfieReaders, I’ve heard those noises.  I don’t think I would classify them as “cute”.  MOL!!!

It’s fall here and that means the leaves are falling!  If the leaves stayed on the trees, the season would be stay.

Mom says “stay” to you a lot!

I’m ignoring that.  Anyway, Mom let us go out in the fall today and she took our picture.

what do we see

If you look very carefully, you’ll see me on the ground, under the bush.

Mom took the picture and changed it!

Hemingway, Mom tried to make you orange!!!

But as you see, tuxedos rule!

Here’s my new song that I made up in honor of my new best buddy.  Please sing it to the tune of “Me and My Shadow”.  Mom taught me that song!

notes

Me and my green bean

Playing through the night and day

small me and my bean

Me and my green bean

No one better take him away.

small my bean

And when it’s time to eat

He hides away

I rush to eat

And then back to play.

Just me and my green bean

We are such a crazy pair!

Mom caught us having a discussion about today’s Sunday Selfie.

Hemingway, you know it’s my turn.  You always hog the Sunday Selfie.

That’s because I am so regal looking.

Pfffffft

Mom………..Steinbeck’s making naughty noises and I didn’t teach him to do it.

You are such a tattle “tail”.

Am not………….

2brothers

Great!  Now Mom went and posted our “discussion”.
