Posts Tagged ‘Hemingway and Steinbeck’

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

The Pose Small

Mom discovered something this morning when she was looking at her face in a book.

Steinbeck, that’s Facebook.

Whatever.  She discovered that today is my one year Gotcha Anniversary!!!

You mean I’ve had to put up with you for a whole year already?

Yep!  And you love me!

Mom said I could share some of my baby pictures.

This was the picture they took of me the first time I visited the doctor’s house.  I told Mom to have them take another picture!  Look at my helicopter ears!!!

This is me exploring the doghouse that Mom’s brother made for her work.  Hemingway and I share it.

This is me sleeping.  I did a lot of it when I was little.

Sleep Two

 

In fact, I still do.

This is me exploring what Hemingway says is a kitty washing machine.

From the Mom:  Hemingway, don’t lie to your little brother.  I would never use that to wash either one of you.  We use that only for the dishes.  No kitties!

Here I am eating with my big brother.  Hemingway looks really really big here.  Mom said she was glad we became good friends so fast.  If you notice, I am protecting my food in case Hemingway dared to take a bite.

Dance4

Here I am playing with my big brother, Hemingway.  He’s still bigger than me, but I’m trying to catch up as fast as I can.

Mom, I just want to thank you for “gotcha’ing” me.  I’m so glad you came to the Humane Society to adopt me.  I just knew we would be the bestest buddies.  Thank you for adopting my big brother, too.

Mom, you made my life special!

sleepy steinbeck

Mom was outside and Hemingway and I were taking a nap.  It was the end of the weekend and we knew Mom was not excited about going back to work.  We weren’t sure what she was doing outside.

Hemingway, what

 

I saw Mom out by the bay window ‘cuz that’s where I was napping.  It looked like she was pulling things out of the ground.  She calls them weeds.  I figure if they’re green maybe they belong there.

Suddenly Mom came running into the house and ran into the bathroom and started the water running.

We tried to go ask her what was happening and all she mumbled was, “Oh boy…Oh boy!”  We figured she was talking to us ‘cuz we’re both boys.  MOL!

Turns out Mom must have disturbed a ground nest of bees.  She always tells us to leave them alone but I guess she doesn’t have to do what we have to do.

bees

Mom told us they attacked her and that wasn’t good since she gets a bad reaction.  Luckily it doesn’t affect her breathing but she does swell up really big and starts running a temperature.

She went to see her vet doctor the next morning ‘cuz her arms were really hurting.  She said she was stung three times on her right arm and twice on her left arm.  The doctor checked her all over and then gave her medicine to take.

Mom said that her right arm from the shoulder to the elbow was all swollen, red, hot, itchy and very sore.   Besides, it was as big as her leg!   She said her left arm was that way from the elbow to the wrist and she was miserable.

She tends to tell tall tales.  If my arm got as big as my leg, it wouldn’t change at all.  MOL!!!

Her medicine made her sleepy last night and we slept with her to make sure she was OK.

Mom said she’s never pulling weeds again!!!  I guess that means we’ll be having a weed sale before long.

The medicine is helping fast and she’s doing much better today.  It was kind of a scary time for her but she had really great care.

Yes!!!  We took care of her!!  Oh, and the vet doctor helped, too.

 

Any Bees

Is this where Mom found the bees?   Should we be this close?

No, Mom was in the front yard and we’re not allowed to go out there.

GOOD!!!!!

We’ve been gone for a while ‘cuz Mom has been taking road trips.  So, today she took one of my pictures and blew it up all over the place!  MOL!!!

Here’s the original:

Steinbeck pouncing

Here’s what it looks like after she played around with it using LunaPic.  She’s such a messer-upper.  I looked gorgeous in the original.  Then look what happened!!

My Boys2Tonight we were sitting together and chatting with Mom.  She told us that yesterday the air conditioner went out at work so it was hot and stuffy and she was afraid to go in today.

She should have stayed home with us then ‘cuz we had cold air in the house.

You’re interrupting again, Steinbeck.  She said when she got to the office it was kind of cool but it was real wet.  She said all the papers felt damp  She said it was like being in a swimming pool locker room.

I know I wouldn’t like swimming pools ‘cuz I hate baths!!!  Did Mom feel like she was taking a bath.

Of course not.

The boys

Mom, we love it when we can have these chats.

(I’m amazed I was actually able to get a picture of you with your eyes open, Little One.)

Mom, did you tell Steinbeck about your niece?

What’s a niece?  Is it like catnip?

No, Steinbeck.  A niece is not food or treats.  It’s Mom’s brother’s daughter.  You know her.  She comes over here and pets you.

Oh, now I’m on the right page.  What about her?

This is a picture of her when she was a little girl.  She’s sitting on Cinder.  You never met Cinder.  She was old when I came here but she and I were best buddies.  Anyway, Mom’s niece got her first job as a licensed RN today.  She’s going to work in a hospital where Mom has had to go before.

Mom’s going to the hospital????

No.  Once again you are not listening.

That’s because I was thinking about doing the “Slappy Paws Dance”.

Mom……..that’s the end of our chat!
