Hemingway, I like having carburetors in my meals.

What on earth are you talking about, Steinbeck?

Well, remember when you had to go to the doctor’s house a little while ago?

Of course I remember.  I got a shot!

Yes, but you also got on that thing that tells the doctor how much we weigh.

I had no choice.  She made me do it.

Yes, but you’re way too chunky now and Mom said we can’t have that many carburetors in our meals now.  Besides, we don’t get our crunchy food now.  I like the canned food, but once the gravy is all licked off, I’m left with yuk!

I know what you mean.  I like the gravy but I have to be really hungry to eat the rest of that stuff.  I want our crunchy stuff back.  But Mom’s not making us cut back on carburetors.  We’re cutting back on carbs.

Well, if you didn’t weigh 23 1/2 pounds, we could have crunchy stuff with all those carb things!

Oh sure, blame it all on me.  Seems the doctor lady said you were a little too chunky for your own good, too.

Do you think the outdoor cat can order some food for us?

He looks like he’s on Mom’s side so he probably won’t do it.

Fine!  I’ll just chew on my carrot and pretend it’s crunchy good stuff with carbs.

Mom told us that today is National Brother’s Day.  Even though we aren’t really brothers, Mom tells us all the time that we are.  She adopted both of us and now we’re all one big happy (most of the time) family.

Brotherly Love

Hemingway………why do you have your fat paw on me in this picture?

It’s to keep you from running away from the flashy box.  That’s what big brothers do.  We protect our little brothers.

Oh…………thanks.  Did you tell our readers what Mom did last weekend?

Not yet, but I will.  Mom left us with her brother.  She just waltzed out the door and went on some road trip.

Didn’t she say she was going to I owe a way………..or something like that?

It’s Iowa, Steinbeck.

Well, it must be far away ‘cuz she was gone for a long time.

She was only gone for the weekend.

In my kitty brain, that’s a very long time!!!

Mom said we could share just a couple of pictures from her road trip.

She took a gazillion pictures!!!

This is the B and B she stayed at in McGregor, Iowa.  She said the owners were great fun and full of information.  The house has lots of history and they shared fun stories about their renovations.

This is downtown McGregor.  Mom said some of the buildings were really old and the architecture was neat.  A tornado went through the town last year but they all worked hard to fix up the buildings and it looks great.

This is the Mississippi River Valley as seen from Pikes Peak National Park just outside of McGregor.  Mom took lots of pictures up there ‘cuz she was so fascinated with the scenery.  She said the water was really high in comparison to other times.

I’m glad she didn’t take us with her.  That looks like lots of water and you know me…….I don’t like water!!!

imageedit_7_2387753851

Anyone who knows Mom knows that she loves taking pictures of dead buildings.  Believe me, she found lots of them on her trip.  However, this time she even found a dead ship!  She thought that was really cool.

We were both super happy when Mom got home again.  We like her to go out and have fun with her friends, but we also like her to stay home and play with us.

Thank you for looking at Mom’s pictures with us.  Remember to hug your brother today!

Brotherly LoveHey everyone, we have spring here and it’s been wonderful.  That’s why you haven’t heard from us.  We’ve all been outside playing and working and enjoying all that fresh air.  That makes us really tired so we’ve been napping lots.

I like to go outside to be brushed.  Mom puts my furs on the log pile and then birdies come and take it for their nests.  I think that’s really neat. Now that it’s getting warmer, I have too many furs anyway, so I will gladly share.

Poor Mom has been working like crazy in the yard and she’s kind of broken her body.  She says she’s getting too old for all this stuff but she really loves pretty flowers.

She took some pictures of some of the stuff she’s been doing so we’ll just do a little slide show for you.  Hemingway, how do we do that?

Just put your paw on that button and stand back.

Ok………

We hope you enjoyed our pictures of Mom’s flowers.

I just want to know when the catnip is going to grow.  I saw one container that had chocolate mint in it.  Doesn’t Mom know that’s not good for us?

I think she probably bought that for herself.

Oh……..well, I guess she can do that.

imageedit_6_8427436381Mom was laughing at me tonight.  She and I were sitting in the front room watching a little TV.  No, I have no idea where Steinbeck was.  He was probably running through the house like a mad cat, messing up all the rugs.

Anyway, back to me.  I had been sitting on Mom’s lap and we had been discussing the day.  Then I jumped down so I could roll on the floor and show her my tummy.  (She always likes to give me tummy rubs.)

Suddenly I saw a shadow go by the front window!  I sat up and growled!!

That’s when Mom started laughing.  She told me I had been spending too much time with the dogs who live behind and beside us.  She told me I was a kitty and not a dog.  Duh!  I know that!  Silly human.

I paid no attention to her.  I slowly walked over by the front door so I could look outside and see what made the shadow.  I growled some more and Mom laughed some more.

Then she finally got up and went to look.  Turns out a Boy Scout (not a Cat Scout) had left a flyer on the outside door handle and I could see it flopping around in the wind so even though no humans were at the door, I still had to growl.  You just never know what that piece of paper might do!

So I ask you…………don’t you all think Mom should be ashamed for laughing at her very own black and white alarm system??  How many other humans have such a unique thing in their house????

I rest my case……….and my body!

We’ve been kind of quiet this week.  First of all, we got hit by a blizzard last weekend.  Can you believe it?  We didn’t have any blizzards all winter and then in April, here comes a blizzard.  It just doesn’t seem right.

Now we’re finally getting some spring weather.  Hemingway and I spent a lot of time out on the deck with Mom yesterday.  We’re hoping to do the same today.  We can hear birds singing and kids yelling and dogs barking and all sorts of things.

Here’s my selfie for the day.  I wasn’t sure that Spring was really out there so I wasn’t sure I wanted to go outside.  

Thanks to all our buddies who talked to Spring and told her to head to our house!

Mom said that my look expresses her feelings too.  That’s why she decided to let me use this picture for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

For those of you who don’t know, we got hit with another winter storm over the weekend and got over a foot of new snow.  There will be mountains of snow all over the place until July!  Mom is really fed up and she keeps mumbling things about Hawaii.  We don’t know what she’s talking about, but we’re thinking she’s not happy with the weather people right now.

So, here’s what I think about all this snow and cold:

WOW!!!  You won’t believe what we are living through this weekend.  

The angels opened all their bags of powdered sugar and flour and dumped it on us!

We don’t know why they got so upset.  We didn’t do anything.

Looks like we’re going to be inside until July.

This was Friday night when Mom came home.

imageedit_12_5962137185

This is what that same area looked like this morning.  We’ve had close to a foot of snow already and more coming.  We also have a blizzard warning and it’s the middle of April!!!

April 14 Storm 1

This is how Mom played with it using LunaPic for the Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Mom says she’s not going outside at all tomorrow.  Even her church cancelled the services.  People and fur people are supposed to stay put.

We’re just following orders!  We hope the rest of you who are free to go outside have fun this weekend.

Mom took our “Patty Paws’ picture and turned it into some art.

Mom loves to make us look different.  MOL!!!

This was what she started out with.

imageedit_23_4722760070

This is what she turned us into.  We think she got into the catnip.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Remember to send spring this way if you see her!

It’s been melting a little around here.  It’s still cold and there’s still plenty of white stuff out there, but here’s an update.

imageedit_8_5843304242imageedit_6_2953600674imageedit_4_5857430789

See……..the snow and cold didn’t hurt Mom’s flowers.  She says they are very stubborn and just won’t let winter get them down.

Mom says she wishes she were a crocus or a tulip ‘cuz this winter is kind of getting her down.

imageedit_1_4857157591

Here’s one of the stained glass yard art pieces without the snow.  Isn’t that rainbow pretty.  It has a solar light in it so if the sun shines, then it lights up at night.

I like to look at it out the window.

imageedit_10_4832269094

Here we are waiting for Mom to come back inside.

She said she doesn’t want us going out ‘cuz the deck is wet and we’ll get all messy.

We think she just doesn’t want us looking to see if the catnip is growing yet.

Have a great rest of the week, everyone.  Don’t forget…..if you see Spring, tell her to get herself over here right now!
