I tried to take a really nice selfie and look who got into it!!!  Besides, that, he seems to have spread his “gingerness” all over the place!!!  Sometimes a nice tuxedo cat just can’t seem to win.

I didn’t want to be left out.  After all, we haven’t been online much ‘cuz of weather and other stuff, so I knew all the readers would want to see me as well.  I’m a handsome dude!

The Boys 2018

We’re so tired of the angels dusting!!!

Did they save up all their dusting for a bazillion years or something?

Just look at what they did!

Mom opened the back door for us today and asked us if we wanted to go outside.

Is she crazy???  Why would we want to put our beautiful feet in all that “dust” the angels stirred up?

No sir.  We stayed inside.

Remember when I was complaining about having too much cold and no snow?

imageedit_1_6851307030

I said all that cold was being wasted. Well…………

snow kitty

Look what happened to poor Outdoor Kitty!!!  He’s amazed.  We haven’t really had snow this winter……….until now.

To make things worse, Mom said we’re losing all of our degrees and going way into the hole.  Tonight the actual temperature may get down to -27 F.  That’s almost beyond the bottom of degrees in my mind.  Poor Steinbeck has never seen cold like this.

Good thing Mom got more wood so we can just stay inside and be warm.

If anyone has extra degrees, please send them our way!  We would all really appreciate it.

Back and forth.  Back and forth.  What’s gotten into you, Steinbeck?  Do you have ants in your pants?

ants

In the first place, I don’t wear pants.  In the second place, I sure wouldn’t allow ants in them.  What made you ask such a stupid question?

You keep running around the house like a crazy cat.

I’m using my excess energy to warm up the air.

What?

It’s cold outside and I’m trying to get it as warm as possible in the house.

We have a furnace and a wood-burning stove to keep all of us very warm.  You don’t have to run around using up all your energy to make it warm.  Besides, I like to take naps in the sun puddles.fire

But if you look outside, the sky is gray and there’s no sunshine.  There are no sun puddles around.  Besides, there are a few little white specks floating around in the air.  I guess the angels must be dusting today.  I have to keep running around so nobody gets cold.  When I get tired, then I’ll take a nap.

I’m going to dream about taking a nap in a sun puddle.

I’m tired now.

Where’s the snow?  It’s cold out there but there’s no snow.  That seems like such a waste of cold.  Aren’t we supposed to be conserving or something?  We have no snow and it’s cold.  That’s not conserving in my mind.  Besides, there’s not even any sun!!!  If we can’t have snow, can we at least have sun?

imageedit_4_8595611605

Steinbeck, will you quit your grumbling and watch for the squirrels, bunnies and birds?  With all the racket you’re making about no snow, they’re going to get scared and stay away.

imageedit_6_8637200601

Fine, maybe I’ll go help Mom make the bed.  I know she can’t do it without my help.

imageedit_8_7222167562

Steinbeck, come look.  The squirrel is hanging upside down from the bird feeder again.

Hemingway, it’s hard to tell, but he’s looking right at me!

imageedit_11_5363768562

Did that make you forget about the fact we have cold and no snow.

Not really.  But at least it gave me something else to do.  Besides, I found my kicky-throw-in-the-air toy and that always makes me happy.

Sigh…….It’s a good thing Mom had today off from work.  I get so tired taking care of this little one!

Steinbeck, what are you doing?  Do you belong up there?

I belong everywhere!  Besides, I’m admiring the lovely picture Mom has of me on her puter.  I sure was adorable when I was little!!!   I’m also trying to fix things ‘cuz Mom told a big fat white lie!!

What are you talking about?

Remember how she said that after the holidays she would have more time so we could chat with our friends and tell them about our adventures?

Now that you mention it, I do remember something about that.  However, I haven’t noticed that we’ve been able to post anything on our blog lately.

She hasn’t even turned the computer on for us!!  Harumph!!!

Well, she has been sort of….kind of…..busy…..  Wait a minute……….she’s been taking naps with me!  She did tell a big fat lie.

See?  So, I’m trying to figure out the computer so we can go ahead and tell the world about her.

Now Steinbeck, is that the best thing to do?  Remember all the naughty things you and I have done?  Does Mom go and rat on us………

RAT?????????????

Slow down.  Does Mom go and tell on us to all our readers?

Sometimes, but it’s usually when it’s something silly like when you try to hide and leave your tail sticking out for the world to see.

imageedit_2_7058834780

But she doesn’t really tell our readers about the bad things like when I broke the lamp shade, or we both ate all the treats.  She lets the readers think we are little angels with only a few tarnished places on our halos.

Are you saying that I shouldn’t tell the readers that Mom told a big fat white lie?

Probably not.

Can I say she told a big fat “Tuxedo lie”?  MOL!!!!

Nope, but I’ll tell everyone she told a big fat “Ginger lie”.  MOL!!  MOL!!!

Happy New Year, Readers!

Glad to see you made it into 2019. I had no idea we were going from one year to another.

I knew because Mom put a new cat calendar on the wall. She said the calendar is kind of sad this time ‘cuz it’s the last time she’ll get one from her friend. She got a call today and was told he passed away last night. Mom says it really puts a damper on celebrating a new year.

However, Mom also said that we have no known schedule that tells us exactly how long we have on this side of The Rainbow Bridge, and that goes for us fur people as well.

We don’t mean to be all down and sad today, but we do have to face facts. People and fur people are still hurting. There’s fighting, even between me and Steinbeck.

But that’s not real fighting. I just like to torment you to get your attention.

MOL!!! I know that. But there is sadness in the world and we can choose to focus on it, or be thankful for each moment we get and try to spread happiness.

I like that option. Each day of cold snowy weather gets us closer to summer when the catnip will be growing again.

Yes, and each smile you give to someone else, gets passed along to others.

Don’t forget hugs and scritches.

Right you are. See, that’s focusing on good things that make us happy. If we’re happy, it will spill over onto others and they will be happy.

Mom doesn’t like it when I spill things.

That’s not what I mean. This is something you would like to spill. It’s like looking outside, seeing the sunshine bouncing off the winter landscape, and being thankful you’re inside by the fire. It’s that warm cozy feeling you like to share with others.

Mom, we’re sorry you lost your friend. Maybe he’ll find Shakespeare and tell him hi.

For now, we’ll soak up the sunshine and let it spill all over the place and maybe some of it will reach you, dear readers.  May 2019 be gentle and kind to all of you.

Hi, Readers!  Mom said I could be the star of the last 2018 selfie.  Of course she played around with it, but I did approve.

Here’s what she started out with.  Of course this was taken when things were still green outside.  Now it’s pretty much brown with some white.  I don’t like going outside now.

imageedit_8_9965602923

This is what Mom turned my selfie into:

imageedit_5_5047752082

I told her I really liked it ‘cuz it looked like I was surrounded by New Year’s fireworks.  My long whiskers really stand out!  I like to use those whiskers to tickle Mom’s face when I kiss the top of her nose.  MOL!!!

So, the other night we were all relaxing, watching a Hallmark movie.  We had all had a good supper and it was time to relax.  Suddenly there was a knock at the door.  I took off and hid under the couch.

I stayed out where the action was and got a really big surprise!

imageedit_3_3512812428

Look at that little black thing!  My head is about as big as he is!  Mom said his name is Ozzy and he’s my new cousin.  We watched each other and once when we got close we made some spitting sounds and played “slappy paws” but we didn’t chase each other.  I just let Ozzy explore the house and watched him to make sure he didn’t take any of our toys.

I stayed under the couch and wanted nothing to do with meeting this new cousin.  I figure Hemingway will protect me in situations like this.

imageedit_1_8401402685

Here’s a close-up of the little terror.  Notice that bit of paint on his right ear?  He was helping his “dad”  kind of picked up a souvenir.  Mom says he’s still really young and has lots to learn.  I think he was pretty well-behaved considering he was in a strange house.  I guess I’ll accept him.

I’m going to stay under the couch until he’s gone.  Can you make sure to slide my food dish under the couch?
