Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom doesn’t know I’m up here writing to everyone.  I think she’s taking a nap.  She got older so she gets tired more now.  Kind of like us!

Anyway, I wanted to give you kitties a lesson on how to really frustrate your mom when she’s trying to give you a pill.  Mom always brags about how mellow I am and how I just don’t get uptight about anything.  Well, if I’m going to have to take a pill, it’s going to be in my time and in my own way.  Mom learned that the hard way.

Last night she got home from work and she started trying to give me my pill.  I would not cooperate at all.  She kept trying and trying and I kept spitting it out.  This went on all night.  She even tried putting it in yogurt and ice cream but I ate all around it.  I could tell she was getting frustrated ‘cuz she kept mumbling to herself.

Four hours later I still didn’t have the pill inside me.  Mom decided to take a break and read her emails.  She set my pill on the computer desk in front of the monitor hoping it would give her inspiration.  Before long I jumped up on the computer desk, looked at her, walked over to the pill and took a sniff………….and then I just ate it all up.  Down it went into my tummy where it was supposed to be.  MOL!!!!  Mom just looked at me with her mouth open!!!

So now your lesson on frustration is done.  Oh, there’s another pill that has to go down me tonight.  I’m not sure what I’ll do this time!!!

Today was my big trip to the hospital.  I saw it on the calendar so when Mom tried being sneaky about it this morning, she wasn’t fooling me.  I played, “catch me if you can” thinking if I made Mom really late, they wouldn’t be able to do surgery.  It didn’t work.  I was over at the doctor’s house bright and early.  Even though they pretended to be super happy to see me, I was afraid something bad was going to happen.

What really scared me was when Mom left me.  She walked right out that door to her car and forgot to bring me with her!!!  The nerve!!

Well, even though it was a scary day for me, I was really good.  Here’s a picture of me when I was ready for surgery.  Notice that nobody has to hold me?  I’m always Mr. Mellow at the doctor’s house and they just love me.  Now my little brother is an entirely different story!

All Done

They gave me some stuff to go to sleep so I wouldn’t feel anything.  This is a picture of me off in dreamland.

Hemingway Ready for Surgery

I’m glad to see they had me all snuggled in.  They said I did really good through the whole procedure.

Hemingway after surgery

Here I am after surgery.  My eyes look a little droopy but they’re wide open now.  Mom was so happy to see me.  She said they took care of two teeth….one on each side.  At least I’m still balanced.  MOL!!!

I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing great.  Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes.  Poor little Steinbeck was really confused since I was gone all day.  I don’t think he knows what happened yet.

Mom sends a big thanks to the doctor lady for taking pictures of me while I was there so I could share them on our blog.

Mom went to the dogs this weekend!

Whine

Besides that, she got older.  I thought I was the only one getting older this month!

Maybe we should explain.  Mom went on a road trip….

…without us!!   

I was getting to that, Steinbeck.  Anyway, as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, Mom went to visit her friend who has two dogs.  That’s why we say she went to the dogs this weekend.  MOL!!

Benny

This is Benny and he’s special ‘cuz he has one blue eye and one brown eye.  We asked Mom if he was sticking his tongue out at us and she guaranteed us that he was not doing that.  He was just telling her that he didn’t like having his picture taken.

Jack

This is Jack and I think I like him ‘cuz he’s like me.  He always wants to have something in his mouth and he’s always ready for a good game.

pony

Mom also got to meet this pony at the Summer Festival where they were giving pony rides.  She said this pony was really nice.  She explained that the pony was like a very big dog.  I get it now!

While Mom was gone, she got older.  Well, she says she’s not officially getting older for another hour yet, but we can tell you that she’s older!  Watch out world, you never know what our Mom might do now that she’s even more grown-up!!  MOL!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!  WE LOVE YOU AND WE MISSED YOU!!

Mom went out and took some pictures of the flowers in our yard.

Some of these flowers are outside of the fence so we never see them.

We think she should put more flowers in the back yard where we can see them.

We told Mom that and she said, “We’ll see.”  We’re pretty sure to humans that means……maybe in elebenty billion years.

 

Oh well, please enjoy our colorful world.

Finally.  At long last.  I never thought it would get here!

This is me the day Mom chose me to be her new kid.  I was two months old and I wanted a furever home.  Mom got me at the Animal Humane Society, which is where she got Hemingway and also Angel Shakespeare. Funny thing is, we all came from different locations!Baby Steinbeck

Fast forward ten months and this is me now.  I am officially ONE YEAR OLD!!!!  Mom says I’m a big boy now.  Maybe she’ll even let me date!

Birthday Boy

Last night when I went to sleep I wasn’t one, but today I am!  I’m so happy!!!  What a glorious day!

1) Display the award on your blog.

2) Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

3) Share seven facts about yourself.

4) Nominate 15 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blog.  (Mom says she might have to cheat on this.)


SEVEN THINGS ABOUT ME

2) I love all animals.

3) I worked in the airline industry for almost 19 years.

4) I don’t eat fish or seafood.

Mom says everyone should be nominated, but she’s running out of time.  The awards are fun ‘cuz they introduce us to other bloggers.   However, if they are as busy as Mom is, they may not have the time to nominate others.  Please know how much we appreciate the award and how much we love so many bloggers out there.  We have become an extended family ready to help each other through the rough times and then to laugh like crazy through the funny times.

So……………Mom says we are nominating all of our readers!!!  Thanks for being with us.  Mom, can I go eat now???

You’ve got to be quiet, Steinbeck.  We’ve got some important talking to do.  Make sure Mom is not around.

She’s in the other room and I think she fell asleep. If I keep my eyes shut she won’t see me anyway.

Good, and while you’re at it, keep your mouth shut, too.  Now, May is almost over and you know what that means.

Winter’s coming?

No, goofball.  The next month is June.

Hey………..that’s when my birthday is!!!

I know.  Mom will celebrate it big time like she does with all of our birthdays.

So, why do I have to be quiet about that?  Mom already knows.

But also in June is Mom’s birthday.

It is???  No wonder I like her so much.

Anyway…………..we have to try to do something special for her.  Do you have any ideas?

I can share my catnip with her…..or let her use my red dot toy.

Boys????  What are you doing???

Nothing, Mom………and I’m not up on top of the computer desk.

Nothing, Mom………I’m just chewing my fingernails so you don’t have to clip them.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………..

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?
