What a week!  I was so embarrassed I couldn’t even talk about it until now.  Mom said I could put my art up today so let me start with the normal picture.

Ruff Day for Hemigway 2

Mom went to work Thursday morning and Steinbeck and I did our normal things.  We found sun puddles and started napping.  Shortly after that, Mom came in the house again.  I looked at her and wondered why she was home so early.  Then my mental acuteness kicked in.  I knew this was trouble and the trouble was going to involve me!

Mom tried to pick me up off the floor and somehow she managed to fall flat on her face.  I scooted away but Steinbeck stood there and wondered why she was on the floor.  She finally got up and started looking for me in all my favorite hidey spots.  I had her fooled.  Then she asked Steinbeck where I was.  That little squirt ratted me out and led Mom right to where I was hiding!!  Can you believe it??

We finally got to the doctor’s house.  (Yes, I had figured out that’s where we were going.)  Mom had trouble getting me out of the car.  She doesn’t put me in a carrier ‘cuz I weigh 22 pounds and normally I’m really calm.  I was calm this time but I was super slippery.  I turned myself into oil and Mom just couldn’t hold me.  I found my moment to escape and I went under her car.  She was in the parking lot walking all around the car and kneeling in the snow and ice.  I kind of felt sorry for her ‘cuz she’s told me that she has fake knees and it’s hard to kneel.  However, I didn’t feel sorry enough to come out from under the car.  Mom walked into the doctor’s house and told them I was there but I was under her car and wouldn’t come out.  They know me there and Mom said there was a little laughing.  Hmmmmmmmmmm

Next thing I knew, Marcus came out with this big net.  I wondered if he was going to try to catch a fish or a butterfly.  Surprise!  He used it to catch me!!  Do I look like a fish or butterfly??  He picked me up and carried me into the clinic and even though I voiced my opinion, I didn’t try to get loose.

What was my problem?  It’s so embarrassing!  I had dirty pants.  I have long fur and sometimes it gets matted back there ‘cuz I won’t let Mom brush me or trim me there.  She can brush me all over but not there!  So, I was ready for a trim and a little cleaning.  They also checked those nasty anal glands and made sure I didn’t have any infections.  I won’t admit it out loud but I did feel better after they took care of me.

When we got home, I showed Mom what a good kitty I am.  She opened the back door of her car and I calmly walked out.  Then I walked to the gate and waited for her to open it.  I walked through the gate and right up to the back door and waited for her.  No problem at all.  However, I did go hide once we were inside.  I didn’t want to discuss what had happened with Steinbeck and I didn’t want to hear him laughing.

When Mom came home again at night, I was speaking to her again and I even slept with her.  It was such a ruff day but I’m all better and Mom is happy that I’m all clean.  Oh, that Marcus said something about me losing weight.  That wasn’t necessary!

So, here’s my Caturday Art picture for the day.  I hope I didn’t bore you with my antics.

Hi, Readers!  Mom’s home today and now she’s seeing what our days are like.  We play hard in the morning and then we nap.  Mom caught me with one of the toys that I had pulled out of the toy box.  She thought I looked so cute.  Then she used LunaPic to change it and make it all arty.  She did all this while I continued to sleep.  Steinbeck was sleeping way up on top of the computer desk so he wasn’t even bothering me………for a change!  I hope you enjoy the picture.

Here’s the original one:

Saturday Play

Here’s how she changed it:

Mom said I could do the selfie today.  She and her brother sometimes laugh at me ‘cuz I sit and stare at dirt.  I love doing it and I always have.  This is one of my favorite pots.  I just sit and stare and think about wonderful things.  I talk to Shakespeare and ask him how all our friends are doing on the Other Side of the Rainbow Bridge.  I talk about the weather and how cold it is.  I talk about the little one, Steinbeck.  Believe me……..he’s not so little when we’re wrestling!  Dirt listens to me and it understands me.  What’s so wrong with that?

Here’s the original picture before Mom messed around with it.

I decided to post my “Mr. Charismatic” look today.  Mom says she loves my shiny black furs and my white furs that look like snow.  We don’t have any snow here yet and that’s really strange.  Mom hasn’t even been turning on her “bun warmers” in the car.  I still sleep on her head at night just in case she might get cold.

I hope you enjoy my selfie and I hope everyone has a fantastic week!!

Oh My

Readers, we have a problem!  I like to sleep with Mom and she likes it when I purr in her ears.  Now that winter is coming, I like to sleep on top of her head so she doesn’t get cold.  She doesn’t mind as long as I don’t snore.  Some of you already know this about me but I’ll explain to the new people.  Sometimes at night I have “nightkitties”.  You don’t know what they are?  I know some of you do ‘cuz I’ve talked about them before.  Mom talks about “nightmares” but I told her that since I’m not a horse, I can’t have “nightmares” so I have “nightkitties”.  Oh, and Mom has “nighthumans”, in spite of what she says.

Anyway, when I have a “nightkitty” and get scared, I tend to launch myself off Mom’s head.  Of course for extra traction my claws are out a little.  That’s the bigger problem!  Poor Mom has marks on her face that I made.  Currently she has a big scratch on her chin from one of my launches the other night.

Mom says I should launch straight up like the normal rockets and not touch her.

I should launch like this.

But I launch like this.

So, I’m wondering if there are any Launching 101 casses anywhere in the Blogosphere.  I don’t want to leave marks on Mom’s face.  By the way, Steinbeck never does this.  Launching sideways is my very own special problem.

Thanks for listening!

I’m going to show you what I plan on doing today.  I’m going to watch football with Mom.  She loves to wave her arms when she’s watching the Vikings so I keep control of the remote.  I’ve also learned not to try and lay on her lap ‘cuz she doesn’t sit still.  However, it’s quality time with Mom.

I hope all of you have a fabulous day.  Please visit my other friends at the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by our friends, Kitties Blue.

Hey everyone!  it’s time for the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop with our friends.

This is supposed to be Labor Day Weekend, but we think Mom considers it napping weekend.  She’s sure not doing that much labor!

She’s been out in her hammock reading.  At least she let us come outside, too.

When Steinbeck grabbed the flashy box when I was trying to take a nap, I got kind of upset.

I wanted to get a picture of you in a goofy pose.

Look who’s talking!

Well, we hope everyone is having a delightful weekend!

Nap time
