Oh My

Readers, we have a problem!  I like to sleep with Mom and she likes it when I purr in her ears.  Now that winter is coming, I like to sleep on top of her head so she doesn’t get cold.  She doesn’t mind as long as I don’t snore.  Some of you already know this about me but I’ll explain to the new people.  Sometimes at night I have “nightkitties”.  You don’t know what they are?  I know some of you do ‘cuz I’ve talked about them before.  Mom talks about “nightmares” but I told her that since I’m not a horse, I can’t have “nightmares” so I have “nightkitties”.  Oh, and Mom has “nighthumans”, in spite of what she says.

Anyway, when I have a “nightkitty” and get scared, I tend to launch myself off Mom’s head.  Of course for extra traction my claws are out a little.  That’s the bigger problem!  Poor Mom has marks on her face that I made.  Currently she has a big scratch on her chin from one of my launches the other night.

Mom says I should launch straight up like the normal rockets and not touch her.

I should launch like this.

But I launch like this.

So, I’m wondering if there are any Launching 101 casses anywhere in the Blogosphere.  I don’t want to leave marks on Mom’s face.  By the way, Steinbeck never does this.  Launching sideways is my very own special problem.

Thanks for listening!

So………Hemingway talked me into doing this selfie.  I had been sleeping very soundly and then a camera appeared.  I touched the button and to my horror, this appeared.  Hemingway laughed at me and said I looked like I had “bed hair”.  Well, he was all wrong with that ‘cuz I was sleeping on the couch so I must have had “couch hair”.  Mom said I have to have a date with the brush.  I thought she said I was too young to date!!

Whine

Guess what………guess what……..guess what…………..

I’m so excited.  I want to should the news from the rooftop!!!

IT’S SNOWVEMBER!!!!

Mom took some pictures outside when she got home.  She showed them to me and I was so happy.  Before you ask…….no I have not walked in it yet.  Hemingway told me I wouldn’t like it.  Besides, Mom doesn’t want us going out when she gets home from work ‘cuz it’s getting dark.  I hope you enjoy the Snowvember Pictures!!!

Steinbeck, what have you done?

Well, I was looking through the puter and everyone was talking about Tocktober days and I decided I could post a Tocktober picture.

You sure did.

I wanted a modest picture so I found this one that Mom had taken.  I think it shows off my fluffy tocks without being too embarrassing.

It’s a good thing your tail is so fluffy.

Yes, we know.  We’ve been missing for a long time!  What is it with humans that they don’t understand how important it is for us to keep up with our friends in the blogosphere???

What kind of sphere?  Is that something I can chase around the floor?

Steinbeck, go check the food dishes and leave me alone.

Off and running……….

Here’s our Caturday Art for the day and it doesn’t have any fur people in it at all.  Mom was outside looking at all the leaves on the deck.  It was raining and she thought it was really pretty so she played around with it.

Here’s the original:

Here’s what happened when she played with it:

She said she likes this ‘cuz it has both orange and black in it so it reminds her of us.

Hemingway and I stayed inside today ‘cuz it’s a bazillion degrees outside.  Even Mom said it was miserable.  She says the weather is all confused since yesterday was the first day of fall.

Well, my buddy and I are just chillin’ today.

Happy Caturday to everyone!  We had something very unusual happen at our house today.  There was a parade that went right by our house complete with drums, horns, and a FIRETRUCK!  Mom went outside but we stayed inside and watched from a safe distance.  We decided to let the firetruck be the subject of our caturday art today.  Here’s Mom’s original picture:

Here’s after she “artified” it with LunaPic.  She said she’s sorry but she wasn’t paying attention to what all she did.  (Typical….MOL!)

Mom got me all excited about taking a field trip tonight.  She put my blankie in the box I like to play in and she even put a toy in there.  Then she put me in there!  Next thing I know I’m in the car and we’re going somewhere.

This doesn't smell like home

I don’t think I like the smell of this place.

When she finally let me out of my box, I knew I was in trouble.

What makes you think I'm mad

I’m not happy about this so called field trip idea of yours!

I'm going to keep singing the song of my people

No I will not stop singing the song of my people.  In fact…..I may sing it even louder!

I found a chair to hide behind where nobody could see me.  If you notice, there’s a treat on the floor.  The doctor lady tried to bribe me with a stupid treat but I didn’t fall for it.

Nobody can see me behind this chair

Then the doctor lady came to talk to me and she was being all nice and friendly.

Can't you tell I'm trying to hide

Call me squishy face

I even had to do a squishy face for them!

Think light

I tried to distract them so they wouldn’t see how much I weighed.  Here I am thinking really light.  It didn’t work.  Would you believe I weigh 12 pounds!!!  The doctor lady said I could lose a little weight.  How rude!

I'm running away from home

Maybe I should run away from home.  I can’t believe that doctor lady said I should lose weight!  Only Hemingway needs to lose weight.  Not me!!!

Don't care about the window view

Mom!  I don’t like your idea of a field trip at all.  Don’t ever try to pull that on me again.  Now let me eat and leave me alone.

From the Mom:  Tonight Steinbeck made more noise than he ever has.  Usually at home he just has this quiet little squeak.  Now I know that he’s been hiding a very loud voice.  Oh boy can he sing the song of his people at the top of his lungs!!!  He’s not Mr. Mellow Cat at the doctor’s house like Hemingway is, but they all love him there ‘cuz he’s so soft and fluffy.  He did great with his shots and his nail trim and I was very proud of him.  He was pronounced fit and healthy so he doesn’t have to go back for a year.

Hey everyone!  it’s time for the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop with our friends.

This is supposed to be Labor Day Weekend, but we think Mom considers it napping weekend.  She’s sure not doing that much labor!

She’s been out in her hammock reading.  At least she let us come outside, too.

When Steinbeck grabbed the flashy box when I was trying to take a nap, I got kind of upset.

I wanted to get a picture of you in a goofy pose.

Look who’s talking!

Well, we hope everyone is having a delightful weekend!

Nap time
