Hemingway, do we get a vacation?

imageedit_6_8625097896

Steinbeck, why are you asking such a question?  Mom would quickly tell you that every day is a vacation for you.  Mom has to go to work and I have to stay home and take care of you.  That means all you do is sleep, eat and play.

Is that a vacation?

Well, it can be.

Is that what Mom did when she went on that vacation last weekend?

Not really.  Mom was busy running around with her girlfriend, checking out neat restaurants, looking for fun things to buy and playing with her girlfriend’s dogs.

Trust me.  Playing with dogs is NOT a vacation!!!  What did the dogs look like?  Were they as cute as I am?

Give me a break.  Here’s a picture.  Each dog has a favorite toy as you can see.

MOL!!!  I see what’s wrong with them.  They both look like you!

Mom………on your next vacation……….I’m going with you!  I know I hate to ride in the car but taking care of Steinbeck is getting harder and harder as he gets older.  I need a vacation!

Hemingway, I like having carburetors in my meals.

What on earth are you talking about, Steinbeck?

Well, remember when you had to go to the doctor’s house a little while ago?

Of course I remember.  I got a shot!

Yes, but you also got on that thing that tells the doctor how much we weigh.

I had no choice.  She made me do it.

Yes, but you’re way too chunky now and Mom said we can’t have that many carburetors in our meals now.  Besides, we don’t get our crunchy food now.  I like the canned food, but once the gravy is all licked off, I’m left with yuk!

imageedit_11_7620639123

I know what you mean.  I like the gravy but I have to be really hungry to eat the rest of that stuff.  I want our crunchy stuff back.  But Mom’s not making us cut back on carburetors.  We’re cutting back on carbs.

Well, if you didn’t weigh 23 1/2 pounds, we could have crunchy stuff with all those carb things!

Oh sure, blame it all on me.  Seems the doctor lady said you were a little too chunky for your own good, too.

Do you think the outdoor cat can order some food for us?

He looks like he’s on Mom’s side so he probably won’t do it.

Fine!  I’ll just chew on my carrot and pretend it’s crunchy good stuff with carbs.

Mom got so excited about her roses that she forgot yesterday was my birthday!  I’m two years old now!!!  Where has the time gone?

Mostly sleeping, Steinbeck.  You pretty much napped your two years away.

Did not!  I played with the red dot.  I chased the jingly balls.  I explored outside.  I looked out the windows.  I chased you around the house.  I jumped up on Mom’s lap for some purr time.  I ate.  I ran up and down the stairs.  I was a busy boy.

OK…..but during that running around time, you disturbed MY naps.

So that’s why you’re so grumpy?  Come on, let’s sing the birthday song.

Happy Catnip Day to me……..Happy New Toys Day to me….Happy Lots of Treats Day to meeeeeeeeee………Happy Two Years Old to ME!!!

Mom told us that today is National Brother’s Day.  Even though we aren’t really brothers, Mom tells us all the time that we are.  She adopted both of us and now we’re all one big happy (most of the time) family.

Brotherly Love

Hemingway………why do you have your fat paw on me in this picture?

It’s to keep you from running away from the flashy box.  That’s what big brothers do.  We protect our little brothers.

Oh…………thanks.  Did you tell our readers what Mom did last weekend?

Not yet, but I will.  Mom left us with her brother.  She just waltzed out the door and went on some road trip.

Didn’t she say she was going to I owe a way………..or something like that?

It’s Iowa, Steinbeck.

Well, it must be far away ‘cuz she was gone for a long time.

She was only gone for the weekend.

In my kitty brain, that’s a very long time!!!

Mom said we could share just a couple of pictures from her road trip.

She took a gazillion pictures!!!

This is the B and B she stayed at in McGregor, Iowa.  She said the owners were great fun and full of information.  The house has lots of history and they shared fun stories about their renovations.

imageedit_3_4158158522

This is downtown McGregor.  Mom said some of the buildings were really old and the architecture was neat.  A tornado went through the town last year but they all worked hard to fix up the buildings and it looks great.

imageedit_5_8916077423

This is the Mississippi River Valley as seen from Pikes Peak National Park just outside of McGregor.  Mom took lots of pictures up there ‘cuz she was so fascinated with the scenery.  She said the water was really high in comparison to other times.

I’m glad she didn’t take us with her.  That looks like lots of water and you know me…….I don’t like water!!!

imageedit_7_2387753851

Anyone who knows Mom knows that she loves taking pictures of dead buildings.  Believe me, she found lots of them on her trip.  However, this time she even found a dead ship!  She thought that was really cool.

We were both super happy when Mom got home again.  We like her to go out and have fun with her friends, but we also like her to stay home and play with us.

Thank you for looking at Mom’s pictures with us.  Remember to hug your brother today!

Image result for graphics of clowns

Steinbeck, why did you put a picture of a clown on our blog?

‘Cuz Mom said she was scoping out clowns yesterday.  That’s why she was gone most of the day.

No, no, no………

Yes, yes, yes……..

Steinbeck, Mom wasn’t scoping out clowns, she had to have a colonoscopy.  Didn’t you notice that she didn’t eat all weekend?

Now that you mention it, I didn’t notice her in the kitchen very much.  So what is that cold as a pea thing?

It’s not a very fun test, but Mom says it’s really critical to determine if a human has cancer.

April 14 Storm Steinbeck

 

MOM HAS CANCER????????????

No, no, no…….relax.  Her test was fine but she wouldn’t have known that if she hadn’t had the test.

Will we have to have one of those cold as a pea things?

No.  At least I certainly hope not.  Can you imagine spending all day and night in the litter box???

That’s why Mom was living in the bathroom?

Surrounded by ginger

Did you notice she wasn’t smiling much……….or even talking???

Hemingway, if Mom ever puts peas in our food dish……..           

RUN!!!!

From the Mom:

Yes, I went through the torture of having a colonoscopy yesterday.  (I hope this isn’t TMI, but I do feel it’s important.)  The prep was really hard on me this time so next time, the doctor is going to change some of the things I have to take.  However, I’m glad it’s over and I’m glad they didn’t find anything serious.  Early detection is key and the fact I’ve had polyps in the past indicates I need to be alert.  Even though it’s no fun, I recommend everyone getting the test.  Oh, and I won’t be putting peas in the boys’ dishes.

Brotherly LoveHey everyone, we have spring here and it’s been wonderful.  That’s why you haven’t heard from us.  We’ve all been outside playing and working and enjoying all that fresh air.  That makes us really tired so we’ve been napping lots.

I like to go outside to be brushed.  Mom puts my furs on the log pile and then birdies come and take it for their nests.  I think that’s really neat. Now that it’s getting warmer, I have too many furs anyway, so I will gladly share.

Poor Mom has been working like crazy in the yard and she’s kind of broken her body.  She says she’s getting too old for all this stuff but she really loves pretty flowers.

She took some pictures of some of the stuff she’s been doing so we’ll just do a little slide show for you.  Hemingway, how do we do that?

Just put your paw on that button and stand back.

Ok………

We hope you enjoyed our pictures of Mom’s flowers.

I just want to know when the catnip is going to grow.  I saw one container that had chocolate mint in it.  Doesn’t Mom know that’s not good for us?

I think she probably bought that for herself.

Oh……..well, I guess she can do that.

Mom said I could do the Caturday Art today.  This picture is from the other day when we were all outside playing.  I’m doing my spring dance step.

Steinbeck's Spring Dance Step

Mom played around with it and got this.  She used LunaPic and first she embossed it and then she added some tattoo art effects.

Hello to everyone at the Caturday Art Blog Hop.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

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!

We’ve been kind of quiet this week.  First of all, we got hit by a blizzard last weekend.  Can you believe it?  We didn’t have any blizzards all winter and then in April, here comes a blizzard.  It just doesn’t seem right.

Now we’re finally getting some spring weather.  Hemingway and I spent a lot of time out on the deck with Mom yesterday.  We’re hoping to do the same today.  We can hear birds singing and kids yelling and dogs barking and all sorts of things.

Here’s my selfie for the day.  I wasn’t sure that Spring was really out there so I wasn’t sure I wanted to go outside.  

Thanks to all our buddies who talked to Spring and told her to head to our house!

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:
