Caturday Art

We’re not going outside today ‘cuz it’s cold and windy and there are even some of those white things flying around.  We will stay inside where it’s nice and warm.

Mom decided to use one of my pictures from when I was a kitten for the Caturday Art today.  She always thought I looked so cute on that bench.  It matches my furs!!!!

Here’s my artwork for today:

Now here’s what I really looked like:

Believe me, Mom doesn’t often get pictures of me with my eyes open.  When I see the flashy box I shut my eyes.  MOL

I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.  Don’t forget to check out the other Caturday Art.

Oh boy……we haven’t joined our friends at the Blue Kitty House for a long time.

Steinbeck, it’s the Kitties Blue.

Are they all blue?

Just explain your selfie to the readers.

OK.  This was taken to prove to Mom that my ears were clean.  MOL!!!  Of course my messy bib shows, too.  Mom is always combing and brushing my bib but somehow I manage to mess it up rather quickly.  Anyway we wanted to join our friends today so don’t forget to stop and say hi to them, too.

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:

Fall or Fell

imageedit_13_6820213783

Steinbeck………..did you look at the calendar?

imageedit_11_4228933412

No.  Why?

Well, today is the first day of fall.

Did you say Mom fell???

No.  Get the catnip out of your ears.  I said today is the first day of fall.  Remember how the trees change their clothes and put on lots of pretty colors?

Oh, like in this picture Mom took a couple years ago when I was really little?

 

imageedit_1_4979817010

Yep, that’s fall.

So when the trees shake off all their leaves, does that mean the next season is Fell?

Someone (whose name starts and ends with an “M” and has an “O” in the middle, has made us miss all sorts of Caturday Art times.

We decided to protest tonight and we told her we needed to practice.

So, she let us practice on this picture of Steinbeck in his bed.  I didn’t want my picture up there ‘cuz I’ve put on some extra furs and I didn’t want people thinking I was big.

But you are big, Hemingway!

Enough.  Here’s the picture you might remember from our last blog:                                                                                                                                                                                        imageedit_3_8380916357

Now here’s what we created (with a little help):

imageedit_3_7455968789

Steinbeck, have you ever thought of dying your furs like that???   I really like you with blue whiskers and blue ear fur.  MOL!!!!

Harumph!

Look what my little brother did most of the day:

imageedit_1_9627346284

So what are you saying?  Mom got me this new bed so I’m supposed to sleep in it.

All day?????

imageedit_3_8380916357

Why not?  Look at how beautiful my furs look against the sparkly blue.  It makes my gingerness look gorgeous.

The only reason you are in that bed is ‘cuz you stayed out in the back yard too long last night and Mom got mad at  you. And then you got really tired.

I told her I was busy counting the flowers.  Look at all I found.

imageedit_5_8997669521

There was this pretty vine by the honeysuckle.

Look at that.  It’s red.

imageedit_11_6005914196

And look what was growing on the honeysuckle.  Isn’t it pretty?  It would be fun to bat around on the sidewalk.

And it’s red.

imageedit_7_9514863904

Then here’s some grrrrrrrrrrrrraniums.

Once again, they are red.

imageedit_9_3275649435

Then there’s this pretty flower I found by one of my hidey places.

Amazing.  It’s red.

imageedit_13_4318716507

And then I found this one also by my hidey place.

Hey………..it’s not red.  How did you manage to find that one?  So, what was your excuse to Mom for staying out so late.

I told you.  I told her I was counting flowers.

Only the red ones?

They were easier to see in the dark.  I really had to strain my eyes to count that black piece of tuna.

Steinbeck, I don’t appreciate you staying out late ‘cuz Mom gets worried and then both of us have to stay inside.

But I wanted to count flowers………………

We try our best to make Mom laugh when she comes home from work.

We both have our traditions and if we don’t do them, Mom knows something is wrong., like when I got so sick.

I like to sit in the side window in the living room and watch for Mom to come home.  Mom usually looks at the window to see if I’m there.  However, I know what her car sounds like so I can tell she’s there before she pulls into the driveway.  She always starts laughing (or so she tells me) ‘cuz she can tell I’ve been waiting for her.  See, when she pulls into the driveway and looks at the window, if I’m not there, she can tell I was ‘cuz the blinds are moving in all sorts of directions.

I make Mom laugh when she gets to the door.  She has her key in her hand but she looks in the door, and there I am reaching up for the doorknob to “help” her.  She thinks I look so cute that she can’t help but laugh.  Then when she finally unlocks the door and opens it, I take time for a quick “mew” and then I’m off racing into the back yard to see what I’ve missed.  I usually do come back in again to check on my food dish, but I like to spend as much time in the back yard as I can.

Then, once we’re both inside, we have to take a nap.  Usually we’re both on the couch with Mom.  We watch TV or read or maybe talk on the phone.  It’s our together time and sometimes we get to chase the red dot.

When it’s almost time for Mom to go to bed, she goes out to the kitchen where all the food is and she gets us some treats.  Hemingway sits up and begs for his treats but I don’t have time for that so Mom just lets me have mine.

So, we have greeting time, outside time, together time and then treat time.

Guess what comes next?

Mr Hemingway

Hi Readers!!!  This is me enjoying the cooler weather outside.  It’s been a real whirlwind around here this weekend.  First of all, look who’s home:

Mr Steinbeck

Oh man…….why are you putting that picture of me in the blog???  This was the first time I came home on Thursday night and I still wasn’t good.  The doctor lady thought I would be okay ‘cuz I had peed on my own.  However, I did that just so they would let me out of there.  Once I got home I wouldn’t eat and I didn’t do too much moving.  Mom was getting pretty concerned when she left for work Friday morning.

Mom had been at work for a couple of hours and suddenly the phone rang.  She was really surprised to hear her neighbor’s voice.  She didn’t think anyone knew her work number ‘cuz half the time Mom doesn’t even know it!  Anyway, our neighbor told Mom that the police were looking for her.  I promise that I didn’t call them claiming abuse for not getting enough catnip.  Mom couldn’t figure out what was going on and was afraid something had happened to her brother and nephew who were on a road trip.

Before Mom could call the police and find out what was happening, the phone rang again and it was her clinic.  Turns out Mom had really low Halloween Goblins (Hemingway, that’s hemoglobin).  Anyway her doctor told her she had to get to emergency right away and get a blood transfusion.

PANIC!!!!  Mom got home and called the vet to see about taking Steinbeck back since he wasn’t doing good and her doctor had told her she might have to stay in the hospital.  Steinbeck went for yet another ride over to the vet’s and Mom gave them her cell phone number and her neighbor’s cell phone number and told them she was on the way to the hospital.  Her neighbor drove her over there and she got checked in.

When they were hooking her up for the transfusion, there was a knock on the door and the nurses asked Mom if she was expecting anyone.  She laughed and said she gave at the office.  Anyway, turns out it was her neighbor.  Steinbeck was having problems and they wanted him in a clinic that was open 24 hours.  Mom, our neighbor and the vet all talked it over (while Mom was getting blood) and our neighbor said she would take Steinbeck.

Another crisis settled.  Then Mom’s niece, who is a nurse at that hospital, called her and luckily she wasn’t working so she could come and get Mom and bring her home when they were finished.

Mom got home and then had to go over to the clinic to see Steinbeck and sign some papers.  Finally she got home and stayed put.

Yesterday she got together with some friends from her old job.  She was glad she was able to make that.  However, when she got home, she ended up taking a two hour nap.  Today she’s been running around doing stuff, but she did manage to find time to spend in the hammock.  The dizzies and stuff are still there and she knows she has more tests ahead of her now but at least she’s not white like my feet any longer.  She has a little color now……..other than gray!

Steinbeck came home again last night and this time he’s doing better.  He is hiding under the couch ‘cuz he’s afraid someone is going to take him to another doctor.  He has been seen walking around the house and going down to the litter box.  He even ate some in the middle of the night.

See……..that’s why I like having a dull life.  Look at all those two have been through this weekend!!!  They both said they really appreciate the prayers and concerns expressed by everyone.  They are both on the way to healing so that’s a good thing.

People….it’s true.  I’m surrounded by sickies.  I’m so thankful that I’m healthy.  It seems everything started falling apart last week.

Let me explain.  First of all, let me tell you about Mom.  She went to see her human vet this week ‘cuz she was having a few issues.  Now she has to go have pictures taken of her brain.  She said first of all she’s going to have to find a brain and she’s not sure where to look.  According to her, this thing called Amazon ran out of brains.  Guess she’s in big trouble.  The other night both Steinbeck and I had to laugh right out loud at her.  She was sleeping soundly and next thing we knew, she was on the floor again!!!  Remember when she did that before?  Some of her friends have told her she’s going to have to pile pillows up around the bed.  We both think that would really be neat!

This morning, Steinbeck was yelling.  Yep…he was actually yelling!!!  He always squeaks and that’s the only noise he makes.  Not this morning.  He woke Mom up super early and she was very concerned.  She decided she was going to take Steinbeck to see the doctor lady before heading to work.  She sent a message to her boss and told her she would be late.  When I heard her talking about the doctor lady and that building, I knew I wanted to hide ‘cuz I sure didn’t want to go!

Mom dropped off Steinbeck at the hospital and I haven’t seen him since this morning.  I asked Mom about it when she got home from work and she explained that he has to stay in the hospital until Friday night.  She asked me if I wanted to get some flowers to take to Steinbeck in the hospital.  I just looked at her and shook my head.  Mom stopped by the hospital tonight to see how Steinbeck was doing.  This is how he came into the room:

At the vet3

Mom didn’t get all of Stephanie’s face ‘cuz she was concentrating on Steinbeck.  I must admit I started to laugh when I saw him with that cone head thing on.  MOL!!!  Turns out he had a urinary tract infection and was plugged up.  No wonder he was howling!!  He was in lots of pain and was so confused.  I felt bad for him when Mom told me.

At the vet2

Here’s Steinbeck showing off his messy furs.  Mom wanted to brush him but she knew he wasn’t interested.  I think he looks kind of cute all “ruffled up”.

At the vet1

I see that Steinbeck has a red bracelet on.  I remember when I was in the hospital place and they put a bracelet on me.  Right now I can’t remember what color mine was.  I told Mom to tell Steinbeck that he looks very dapper.

At the vet4I think Steinbeck is thinking about escaping and is planning his route.  He’s my brother and I can tell things like that.  I better stay by the door tonight so I can let him in.

From the Mom:

Yes………it’s been an exciting time here lately.  I’ve been having trouble breathing and have been getting dizzy again.  This is not the vertigo I went through a few months ago.  This is different.  My doctor wants to make sure she’s checked out everything so I’ll be having some scans next week.  I’ve never been a smoker so that’s not what’s causing the breathing problem.  When Steinbeck was howling this morning I really got scared.  He never makes noises like that unless he’s in the car on the way to the vet.  He looked miserable and wasn’t doing much moving.  When I visited him tonight he wasn’t as stressed out but still wasn’t interested in eating.  Hemingway has definitely turned into Velcro Kitty and won’t leave my side.  I’m sure it will be a happy reunion when the brothers are together again.  Thanks for reading and thanks for any prayers you might want to send.

Hemingway, I was wondering about something.

You usually are.

Just ‘cuz you’re so MUCH older, doesn’t mean you know everything.  You might not even know the answer to this.

Bet I do.  Try me.

Well, you know how weather’s been nice lately?  I mean, we haven’t had wet air and Mom’s hair hasn’t gone all frizzy.

frizzy-hair-clipart-8-300x200

Yes……..so what?  Oh, and by the way, Mom’s not going to be happy you drew that picture of her.

I was listening to those weather people with Mom, who happens to love my drawings,  the other night and the weather people said we’ve got wet air coming soon.  I don’t like wet air ‘cuz it might mess up my furs.

What are you going to do about it?  I could shave off your furs if that would help.

No way!!!  I have a very simple solution.  We get the angels to turn on their ovens and dryers and open the doors.  That should help dry the wet air.

Won’t that make it really hot?

Well, the humans always say it isn’t the heat, it’s the wet air, so my idea would make the hot air dry.

Now you’re quoting humans?  What’s happened to you?  You should be quoting Garfield, Grumpy Cat and Waffles.  I bet they have lots to say about wet air.

MLK Day 4

Don’t you readers think I have some great ideas???

Oh good grief.  What more can I say??
