Posts Tagged ‘Hemingway and Steinbeck’

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.

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!

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?

So, after supper tonight I was looking over Mom’s shoulder and reading our blog.  I was wondering why Hemingway got to go on a field trip and I didn’t.  Then I read what happened!  OMC!!!!

 I just visited the doctor lady not too long ago ‘cuz I had a problem with my “pants”.  Do you know how humiliating that was??  I couldn’t even talk about it.  

And they did that “manny” “petty” thing on me, too!  He didn’t lose all his claws, he just had them cut shorter.  Why does our Mom want us to have short nails?  Is it just ‘cuz she can’t seem to grow her nails long so she doesn’t want to be jealous of us?  If I promise to always hide them around you, Mom……..will you let me grow them long again?  (Can’t say no if I don’t ask. )

When Hemingway came home last night, I wondered where he had been.  He had different smells and he wasn’t talking.  At first I thought maybe he had gone to visit some of our blogging friends.  However, the more I sniffed him, the more I recognized the doctor lady’s house smells.  I was real nice to him last night and let him recover.

Mom says he has to have his toofie worked on and that they will put him out for it.  Does that mean they will put him outside?  Why can’t he just go outside here?  She said he’ll be gone all day.  That’s a long time for him to be away.  How am I going to survive by myself?

Will I have to eat his food so his dish doesn’t get lonely?

Will I have to drag out all his favorite toys?

Will I have to try out all the litter boxes?  Wait……….I already do that!  Cross that off my list.

Will I have to do the blog by myself again?

This is just too much for my little brain.  I need a nap!

Humans sure have some crazy ideas!!  Mom thought it would be cute for me to wear her hat from work for the selfie today.  Believe it or not, that’s me under the hat!

Of course someone else had to get into the act, too!!!

Mom had to take it away from him before he put his “beaver impression” tooth marks all over it!

Howdy readers!!!  It’s a gorgeous spring day around these parts and I’m going to just relax.  I told Steinbeck he could be the Caturday Art today.  He napped while Mom worked on his picture.

It started out like this:

Then Mom went to LunaPic to do all sorts of funky things.  She used an Emboss filter, then used Floating art and finally added Glitterize for the animation.  So, here’s the final result:

Mom thinks Steinbeck looks rather angelic in this picture.  I think he just looks silly.  MOL!  Well, what do you expect a big brother to say?

Caturday Art

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

We were all concerned today.  Mom spent the whole day out at some craft show with her friends.  We kept telling her that she needed to do our Caturday Art.

She didn’t seem to care so we got a little huffy.

You mean you started running around the house like a Krazy Kat!!!

Anyway, when she finally got home, she told us she would post something for us….but it’s not a cat!

This is something she bought from her friend who does stained glass things.  She says it’s yard art.

Here’s the original piece:

It’s on a five foot fiberglass stick so it moves with the wind.

Here’s how she “Caturdayized” it:

She promised us she would remember what all she did so we could tell you.

Guess what?  Mom’s old and tired so she forget.  However, she did say she used things from LunaPic, which has become her favorite toy.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

The look

Steinbeck, what are you doing?

Am Not

Nothing.

You aren’t messing with that plant, are you?

Just Looking

Nope, I was just rearranging some of the leaves and checking to see if it needs water.

Mom told you to leave that plant alone.

So Big

I’m just showing her my tiger pose and not messing with the plant.

Now I’ve heard everything.

Happy Weekend, everyone!!  Mom doesn’t have to go to that work place today so she can play with us.  She said I could be the star today.  She used one of my pictures when I went outside a couple of weeks ago.  (That was when the angels had their ovens turned on and it was warm.  Now they’ve got their freezer doors open again and it’s really cold!)  Anyway, this is the picture:

in-and-out

She used LunaPic and gave it a thermal effect.  Then she added beveled edges.  This is what happened:

Hemingway says it looks psychedelic…….whatever that means!  I think it looks cute.  Thanks, Mom!
