Mom said I could “fancy up” my selfie today.  I was so excited.  We all got to go outside.  I decided it was the perfect time to use my body to clean off the deck.  There were little twigs and old leaves and little bits of this and that.  I managed to get them on my fur.  MOL!!!  That’s why Mom said I should “fancy up” my selfie.  I hope everyone had a very good weekend and is ready to start another week.

Everyone knows my name is Hemingway.  No, I don’t have six toes.  Mom chose that name ‘cuz she liked the author.  Then she got another kitty and she named him Shakespeare.  He wasn’t with us that many years and then she brought another ginger kitty home and named him Steinbeck, after another one of her favorite authors.  She had decided she wanted us to have a blog and wanted us to have literary names.  She also didn’t want us to have names that everyone else had.  She’s strange that way.

Enough of the background information.  My question to all you readers is:  if I have the name Hemingway, why does Mom insist on calling me other names?  Do the rest of you have the problem?  I call Mom, Mom.  That’s all I call her.  I call my little brother, Steinbeck…….well, maybe sometimes I call him Brat……but that’s another story for another day.

Here’s a recent picture that Mom took of me.

One of Mom’s friends likes to call me Mr. Regal ‘cuz I’m always dressed in my finest tuxedo, ready for a party.  When Mom took this picture, she decided it really did show me as Mr. Regal.  I think I look quite like a king in that picture.

She also has another crazy name for me.  Would you believe she calls me, Inaway?  She said she came up with that name ‘cuz I’m always in the way.  Can I help it if she wants to walk wherever I stretch out on the floor?  I say it’s her fault.  I say that I get a vote on this and I’ll go for Mr. Regal instead of Inaway.

What do you think?

Mom was really surprised today.  She looked and there I was all curled up in Steinbeck’s bed.  She was so happy that both of her boys liked the bed.  She’s taught us to share so we both don’t try and sleep in it at the same time……….YET!!!

Mom decided I could be the star for this week’s Caturday Art so here we go:

Look!  I’m up in a tree!!

imageedit_9_4962107397

Mom was taking pictures of the maple tree and then thought she should add me.  Sometimes I really wonder about her.  I had no desire to climb that tree.  In the first place, it’s in the front yard and I don’t go out there.  In the second place it was windy and leaves were flying around.  In the third place, I wanted to just take a nap.  Oh well……….

Happy “Sun” Day, everyone.  I’ve been spending time outside in the sunshine today.  Steinbeck decided it was too windy so he stayed inside.  I stayed outside watching the birdies, the squirrels, and the doggies walking by.  I had a grand old time.  I decided to go with my “Jungle Kitty” shot for my selfie today.  I hope you like it.

Here’s the original:

Mom said I can be the star today since Little One got to do it yesterday.  We’ve had all sorts of weather today.  We’ve had rain, wind, blue skies, sunshine, clouds.  We did manage to get outside for a bit but we had to time it very carefully!

Here’s my selfie for the first of July.

imageedit_6_8427436381Mom was laughing at me tonight.  She and I were sitting in the front room watching a little TV.  No, I have no idea where Steinbeck was.  He was probably running through the house like a mad cat, messing up all the rugs.

Anyway, back to me.  I had been sitting on Mom’s lap and we had been discussing the day.  Then I jumped down so I could roll on the floor and show her my tummy.  (She always likes to give me tummy rubs.)

Suddenly I saw a shadow go by the front window!  I sat up and growled!!

That’s when Mom started laughing.  She told me I had been spending too much time with the dogs who live behind and beside us.  She told me I was a kitty and not a dog.  Duh!  I know that!  Silly human.

I paid no attention to her.  I slowly walked over by the front door so I could look outside and see what made the shadow.  I growled some more and Mom laughed some more.

Then she finally got up and went to look.  Turns out a Boy Scout (not a Cat Scout) had left a flyer on the outside door handle and I could see it flopping around in the wind so even though no humans were at the door, I still had to growl.  You just never know what that piece of paper might do!

So I ask you…………don’t you all think Mom should be ashamed for laughing at her very own black and white alarm system??  How many other humans have such a unique thing in their house????

I rest my case……….and my body!

Mom said that my look expresses her feelings too.  That’s why she decided to let me use this picture for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

For those of you who don’t know, we got hit with another winter storm over the weekend and got over a foot of new snow.  There will be mountains of snow all over the place until July!  Mom is really fed up and she keeps mumbling things about Hawaii.  We don’t know what she’s talking about, but we’re thinking she’s not happy with the weather people right now.

So, here’s what I think about all this snow and cold:
