Mom’s been really busy again so we haven’t been able to convince her to turn on the puter for us.  Sorry we’ve been quiet.

HA!  Mom wouldn’t say we’ve been quiet!!

Anyway, we wanted to do a selfie today so she said we could.

Selfie

Look!  She made us look like we were drinking something out of a funny container.

I don’t know what that is but I’m sure we’re both too young!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Caturday to everyone!  We had something very unusual happen at our house today.  There was a parade that went right by our house complete with drums, horns, and a FIRETRUCK!  Mom went outside but we stayed inside and watched from a safe distance.  We decided to let the firetruck be the subject of our caturday art today.  Here’s Mom’s original picture:

Here’s after she “artified” it with LunaPic.  She said she’s sorry but she wasn’t paying attention to what all she did.  (Typical….MOL!)

Don’t forget to check out what our other friends did for their Caturday Art.

Mom got me all excited about taking a field trip tonight.  She put my blankie in the box I like to play in and she even put a toy in there.  Then she put me in there!  Next thing I know I’m in the car and we’re going somewhere.

This doesn't smell like home

I don’t think I like the smell of this place.

When she finally let me out of my box, I knew I was in trouble.

What makes you think I'm mad

I’m not happy about this so called field trip idea of yours!

I'm going to keep singing the song of my people

No I will not stop singing the song of my people.  In fact…..I may sing it even louder!

I found a chair to hide behind where nobody could see me.  If you notice, there’s a treat on the floor.  The doctor lady tried to bribe me with a stupid treat but I didn’t fall for it.

Nobody can see me behind this chair

Then the doctor lady came to talk to me and she was being all nice and friendly.

Can't you tell I'm trying to hide

Call me squishy face

I even had to do a squishy face for them!

Think light

I tried to distract them so they wouldn’t see how much I weighed.  Here I am thinking really light.  It didn’t work.  Would you believe I weigh 12 pounds!!!  The doctor lady said I could lose a little weight.  How rude!

I'm running away from home

Maybe I should run away from home.  I can’t believe that doctor lady said I should lose weight!  Only Hemingway needs to lose weight.  Not me!!!

Don't care about the window view

Mom!  I don’t like your idea of a field trip at all.  Don’t ever try to pull that on me again.  Now let me eat and leave me alone.

From the Mom:  Tonight Steinbeck made more noise than he ever has.  Usually at home he just has this quiet little squeak.  Now I know that he’s been hiding a very loud voice.  Oh boy can he sing the song of his people at the top of his lungs!!!  He’s not Mr. Mellow Cat at the doctor’s house like Hemingway is, but they all love him there ‘cuz he’s so soft and fluffy.  He did great with his shots and his nail trim and I was very proud of him.  He was pronounced fit and healthy so he doesn’t have to go back for a year.

 

 

 

 

Oh My

Well, it’s Labor Day.  Mom is not doing any labor and neither are we.

Anyone in the kitchen

Mom could at least labor in the kitchen and make us a catnip pie.

I don’t think she’s going to do that.  However, did you see that we had visitors?  Mom said we couldn’t go outside while our cousins were here.

I slept through it all.

I did a little bit of a growl when I saw Stella but that’s because she’s so big and I’m supposed to protect the house.

Stella Bear

There’s Stella lying on OUR deck!!!

Robert and Static

Look……..there’s Uncle Bob letting Static lean on him.  Now he’s going to have doggy smells all over his clothes.

Stella Good Girl

Would you believe he’s telling Stella she’s a good girl?  More doggy smells!!!

 

Here’s a picture of Stella and her mom.  See how much Stella loves Mom’s niece?  Theresa has had Stella since she was a little puppy.

Stella and Mom

 

She was little????

Way back, long before you were even born.

Well, I’m glad Mom and her brother had some fun visitors today.  Now I’m going back to sleep.

Happy Labor Day, Everyone!!!

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

I tried explaining to Steinbeck about the leaves changing colors this time of year.

He never told me why they do it!

Anyway, I told him it was all part of nature and there was nothing he could do about it.

Well, I’m part of nature so why can’t I change my color?

Remember people……….I have to live with him.  Anyway, Mom took a picture of a tree by us that has leaves who have decided they no longer want to be green.  Steinbeck hasn’t personally seen this tree, but he did look at the picture.

 

I figured I could change our colors, too.  Wouldn’t it be cool if I turned green in the fall and Hemingway turned red?  I was hitting buttons on the computer and suddenly this happened:

It’s kind of like putting on colored glasses, Steinbeck.  I think I still look very regal in shades of red.  You, however, look a little sickly.  I think we should stick to our own colors and not try to change like the leaves do.

But nobody has explained to me just why the leaves aren’t happy staying green.  I think green is  a pretty color.  Of course compared to GINGER, it really pales in comparison  MOL!

Mom said since we slept through last Sunday’s Selfie, we better make sure we get one out there today.  After all this will be the last chance in August.

Why?

Look at the calendar.  Next Sunday will be in September.

I better start growing my furs.  Doesn’t it start getting cold soon.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Mom said she doesn’t want to talk about that.  Anyway, here’s our doctored-up selfie.  Mom calls it “Me and My Shadow”.

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.  Be sure to check out what our other friends shared.

We decided that since it’s International Dog Day, we would let our cousin, Stella, be the star today.

Enjoy your day, Stella!

 

where is hemingway

What??????????????

Did you hear Mom talking about some clipsie thing today?

She was talking about the eclipse.

So, what is that?  Is it a new cat food?  Is it a new catnip plant?

No.  It’s something that happened in the sky.

What?

Well, imagine you are looking out the window at a pretty butterfly.  Then all of a sudden, I walk in front of you and sit down for a bit.

You always do that!

Yes, well, that’s sort of what the moon did.  Today the moon got in front of the sun and blocked its sight so it couldn’t send out those rays of light and make it bright outside.

I thought we saw the moon at night.  What’s it doing awake during the day?  Is it still clipsing?

No.  It happened around the time Mom has her lunch.  Maybe since I mentioned lunch you might understand a little ‘cuz teaching you something about the world is next to impossible if it doesn’t involve food or treats.  At least we both did what Mom said to do today.  She told us not to look at the sun.

We didn’t!

I know…………we were both napping.

 

sleeping two

Mom…………..this is how I looked during the eclipse thing.

sleeping one

Mom………..this was me dreaming about clipsie catnip.  Obviously clipsie things are for sleeping.  I wonder if Mom fell asleep at work?????????
