Posts Tagged ‘catnip’

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!!

We have a window.  From this lovely perch (not the fish kind), we can see all sorts of things.

Side by side

Sometimes we see doggies walking on OUR street!

Steinbeck, don’t be selfish.  Sometimes we see birdies and butterflies.

There goes a birdie now!

Oh……..and remember the kitty I saw underneath the window?

Yes, that is the kitty who lives next door.

I’ve even seen squirrels running around the flowers, looking for stuff from the bird feeder.Steinbeck looking up 2

I had my mouth open and Mom said a fly might go in there!  YUK!!!

Hemingway dreaming

Sometimes I get to sit quietly at the window all by myself.  I dream of a world without orange.  I dream of a front yard filled with catnip.  I dream of peace and quiet.  (Mom says sometimes she dreams of that, too……especially when I wake her up at 4:30 in the morning!)

Surrounded by ginger

However, the reality is that I’m surrounded by orange!  Even the table kitty is orange!

Side by side 2

I guess it’s really not that bad.  I do have my little brother to help me look out the window.  Sometimes he warns me if there’s something spooky out there, but most of the time he’s just busy looking all over the place.

So, that’s the “tail” of our window.  Don’t worry.  We actually have plenty of windows but this one is our favorite.  We can see when Mom comes home from work.

Hemingway, do you hear Mom getting something out of our treat drawer??????

My Boys2Tonight we were sitting together and chatting with Mom.  She told us that yesterday the air conditioner went out at work so it was hot and stuffy and she was afraid to go in today.

She should have stayed home with us then ‘cuz we had cold air in the house.

You’re interrupting again, Steinbeck.  She said when she got to the office it was kind of cool but it was real wet.  She said all the papers felt damp  She said it was like being in a swimming pool locker room.

I know I wouldn’t like swimming pools ‘cuz I hate baths!!!  Did Mom feel like she was taking a bath.

Of course not.

The boys

Mom, we love it when we can have these chats.

(I’m amazed I was actually able to get a picture of you with your eyes open, Little One.)

Mom, did you tell Steinbeck about your niece?

What’s a niece?  Is it like catnip?

No, Steinbeck.  A niece is not food or treats.  It’s Mom’s brother’s daughter.  You know her.  She comes over here and pets you.

Oh, now I’m on the right page.  What about her?

This is a picture of her when she was a little girl.  She’s sitting on Cinder.  You never met Cinder.  She was old when I came here but she and I were best buddies.  Anyway, Mom’s niece got her first job as a licensed RN today.  She’s going to work in a hospital where Mom has had to go before.

Mom’s going to the hospital????

No.  Once again you are not listening.

That’s because I was thinking about doing the “Slappy Paws Dance”.

Mom……..that’s the end of our chat!

I’m ready for my close-up.  I’m also standing at attention so I can salute our flag.  Is that what I’m supposed to do, Hemingway?  I hope I have it right.  This is my first Memorial Day celebration.  Is Mom fixing catnip on the grill?

Mom kept telling us that this was Election Day and we should go vote.  Well, if it’s today, why did she vote last Saturday?  She just went off to work this morning and said, “Bye.  Be good and don’t forget to vote.”

voting

Mr Mouse, this was my first election day and I was scared.  I thought I would vote for the wrong thing. They shouldn’t make us young kittens vote on important stuff.  I just pray I did the right thing!  I can tell you that I voted for free catnip for all the kittens and cats in our country.  I also voted for good homes for all the fur people so nobody is hungry or cold.  Then I voted for an extra treat tonight.  🙂

voting2

Mr. Mouse, I’ve been through this before but I had to help the little one.  He was scared to put any marks on the ballot.  I think he did pretty good so he shouldn’t worry.  I voted for a little free time for myself.  I also voted for daycare for kittens so we adult cats don’t have to kittensit them all the time while our humans work.  I also voted for extra treats!

voting3

Yes, Mr. Mouse.  We did our duty….

…..and so did Mom!

dsc_0569Hey Hemingway, did you realize today is a celebration day for me?

DSC_0065Don’t you have celebration days all the time????

No.  It only seems like it since I’m so adorable.  However, Mom reminded me tonight that I’m five months old today!!!  Just think.  Five months ago I was born into this world and about three months ago Mom came and adopted me so I could be in my forever home with you!

Oh boy…………

So, Happy Birthday to me!  I’m now one paw old!!!  Mom……..can we have catnip cake now?

This is us relaxing on the deck a few days ago.

Tonight we’re inside and we’re not happy about it.

In fact, we’ve been inside all week.

Mom said all the angels were baking chocolate chip cookies and brownies and they all left their oven doors open so it got super, super hot this week.

She said she didn’t want us going out when it was so hot but we know that she’s the one who didn’t want to go out and play with us!

Mom said there were more reasons she didn’t want us going outside.

She said something about the Raptor Center releasing a Cooper’s Hawk youngster in our neighbor’s yard last week.  He was hanging around here looking for the older hawk that’s been in this area.  You see, the young one didn’t know how to hunt yet so they were hoping he would get lessons from the older one.

Hey…..I know how to hunt!  I could teach him.

Shakespeare, Mom doesn’t want you messing with any hawks.  She said they are dangerous for us little and not so little kitties.  Here’s a picture of one!

Cooper's Hawk s36-35-008_V

Is that the one in our neighborhood?

Nope.  Mom hasn’t seen him yet or you can bet she would be out there with the camera.

I guess we’ll just have to stay inside in the cool air for now.  I wonder if those angels would consider making some catnip brownies.  I could go for some right now!!!!

Well of course you would!!!

Mom got home safe and sound and said she was surprised at how much her brother had done on the deck while she was gone.

She even has steps now so she can get up on the deck without any problems.

Remember we told you all about how graceful she isn’t?  MOL!!!

Anyway, here are some pictures of our adventure tonight.  Mom didn’t let us stay out real long ‘cuz there was a hock circling.

Shakespeare, I think it’s spelled h-a-w-k.

Whatever!

Here I am enjoying a little rest where the hammock stand is currently situated.

I'm checking out to make sure the boards are strong enough to hold me.

This part isn't done yet so we have to be careful.

I'm looking to see if Mom put any catnip plants under the deck. I'm just watching Shakespeare be stupid.

Not MeShhhhh…….we must be very quiet ‘cuz we’re being very, very sneaky!

FoodWHAT DID YOU SAY????

Shakespeare, quiet!  Mom’s birthday is this Saturday but she’s going to be out of town.

Oh right……..I remember that.  She’s going to a house that has two dogs and no kitties.  She’s going to be very lonely.

Anyway, since she’ll be gone on her birthday, we wanted to make sure something got posted in our blog so she would know we’re thinking of her.  She doesn’t even know that I learned how to turn the puter on so we can do this.  Won’t she be surprised?

Is someone going to feed us while she’s gone?

Of course.  Just relax.

2016 BirthdayWe don’t have any of that money stuff so we thought we would share some of our toys and treats with you.

Are you really going to give Mom some of my treats?  Did I agree to that?

picture-of-a-birthday-cake-with-lots-of-candlesWe heard that it’s going to be two hundred and elebenty billion degrees outside on Saturday and we know why.  Just look at all those candles!!!!

Don’t worry folks.  Once Mom blows out the candles it should cool down a little.  Too bad her birthday isn’t in January!  MOL!!!!Lonesome

Mom, we just want you to know that even though you won’t be with us on your actual birthday, we will celebrate with you when you get home.

Do you like catnip on your cake?
