Mom was in a goofy mood so we let her go ahead and post this selfie.

kitty in the plant

This is the friendly kitty who sits in the plant.  Mom has colored lights in the plant so the kitty gets to enjoy all those pretty colors.  In the warm weather, the kitty and the plant are outside and we pretty much ignore him.

However, when it started getting colder Mom brought the kitty and the plant inside and I had to have a long conversation with the kitty.  I wanted to make sure he wasn’t going to play with any of my toys or eat any of my food and treats.

I just looked at the kitty and said, “Good luck.”

We’re part of a fun blog hop today so please check out our other friends.

Steinbeck was really hungry.  He was wandering around the house telling anyone who would listen.I'm going to keep singing the song of my people

Grocery Inspectors

So I went shopping and got a new kind of cat food.  Steinbeck wanted to check it out and make sure I got something good.

OH NO!!!!!!  Look what happened…………

He grew into a gigantic lion!!!!

Mom, that’s a mighty big tale you’re telling.  Our readers are going to think you’ve lost your mind.  We already know you have but we were trying to keep it from them.  MOL!

Well, the pictures of the lion are real.  That was something delivered to our warehouse at work today for storage .  The lion was in a large crate and completely covered with plastic wrap so it was hard to get good pictures of it.  I would have loved to see that lion running free in the jungle instead of on display that way.  However, it was incredibly fascinating to look up close and personal at that magnificent cat.  What a unique opportunity for us at work today.

You didn’t try to bring it home, did you????

I decided to post my “Mr. Charismatic” look today.  Mom says she loves my shiny black furs and my white furs that look like snow.  We don’t have any snow here yet and that’s really strange.  Mom hasn’t even been turning on her “bun warmers” in the car.  I still sleep on her head at night just in case she might get cold.

I hope you enjoy my selfie and I hope everyone has a fantastic week!!

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!!!

I’m going to show you what I plan on doing today.  I’m going to watch football with Mom.  She loves to wave her arms when she’s watching the Vikings so I keep control of the remote.  I’ve also learned not to try and lay on her lap ‘cuz she doesn’t sit still.  However, it’s quality time with Mom.

I hope all of you have a fabulous day.  Please visit my other friends at the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by our friends, Kitties Blue.

Mom seems to love to get the flashy box out when we’re trying to sleep.  She has this idea that we get in really cute positions and she wants to remember them.

Mom, can’t you just look at us and keep that memory in a special box in your brain?  I really don’t like the flashy box that much.

This particular time we were just taking a nap on the couch and when Mom spotted us we just knew she was going for the flashy box.

Mom said she had to take the picture to prove to our readers that we really do get along and like each other.

Readers, you already knew that………right?  Mom didn’t have to flashy box us.

Another thing Mom laughs about is all the little noises that I make when I’m sleeping.  She says Hemingway doesn’t do it, but I do.  I sigh and kind of moan and make little sounds like I’m trying to talk in my sleep.

Are you sure you aren’t snoring?

No way!!!  Mom says I’m making cute noises.

Mom!!!!  Enough with the flashy box.  I’m trying to explain things.

bandw selfieReaders, I’ve heard those noises.  I don’t think I would classify them as “cute”.  MOL!!!

Mom caught us having a discussion about today’s Sunday Selfie.

Hemingway, you know it’s my turn.  You always hog the Sunday Selfie.

That’s because I am so regal looking.

Pfffffft

Mom………..Steinbeck’s making naughty noises and I didn’t teach him to do it.

You are such a tattle “tail”.

Am not………….

Great!  Now Mom went and posted our “discussion”.

We have a window.  From this lovely perch (not the fish kind), we can see all sorts of things.

Side by side

Sometimes we see doggies walking on OUR street!

Steinbeck, don’t be selfish.  Sometimes we see birdies and butterflies.

There goes a birdie now!

Oh……..and remember the kitty I saw underneath the window?

Yes, that is the kitty who lives next door.

I’ve even seen squirrels running around the flowers, looking for stuff from the bird feeder.Steinbeck looking up 2

I had my mouth open and Mom said a fly might go in there!  YUK!!!

Hemingway dreaming

Sometimes I get to sit quietly at the window all by myself.  I dream of a world without orange.  I dream of a front yard filled with catnip.  I dream of peace and quiet.  (Mom says sometimes she dreams of that, too……especially when I wake her up at 4:30 in the morning!)

Surrounded by ginger

However, the reality is that I’m surrounded by orange!  Even the table kitty is orange!

Side by side 2

I guess it’s really not that bad.  I do have my little brother to help me look out the window.  Sometimes he warns me if there’s something spooky out there, but most of the time he’s just busy looking all over the place.

So, that’s the “tail” of our window.  Don’t worry.  We actually have plenty of windows but this one is our favorite.  We can see when Mom comes home from work.

Hemingway, do you hear Mom getting something out of our treat drawer??????
