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.

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.

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!

toys2

Mom said we are little piggies.

She said, you’re the little piggy, Steinbeck.

All I wanted was this special toy.

toys 1

So I closed my eyes and started digging.  I used this foot first.  Then I just kept going.  I noticed that you came over to see what I was doing.

I couldn’t believe the mess you were making!  Look what you did!!

Now Mom says we have to hire a maid to pick up after us ‘cuz she’s getting tired of doing it and we seem to forget to do it.

How do we hire a maid?  Will the maid take catnip as pay?  I don’t have any human money stuff.  I don’t even know what a maid is.  I’m going to go play with my toys.

Readers, I live with him all the time!

Mom says I’m a furry, four-footed wrecking ball.  What does she mean by that, Hemingway?

Here, I found a picture on the internet thingy.

Who Me

Hey….I don’t look like that!  I do love to play with balls, though.  So do you.Wait a minute!!!  Did you do something to this picture of me?  I look like I weigh a million pounds!!!

Never mind your fluffy tummy.  We all know you love food.  Anyway, Mom calls you a wrecking ball ‘cuz you seem to get into EVERYTHING.

So do you!

I’ve grown up a little so I don’t knock everything off the shelves, tables, desks and bookcases.  Even last night you managed to knock down  a round candle and you were chasing it all over the house.

It was fun!

You also do lots of exploring, as evidenced in the following photo:

Kitty Wash I was just checking things out.  By the way, is this a Kitty Wash machine?  There’s plenty of room for even you!

Steinbeck, get out of there!

Statue

Nobody can see me.  I’m a lamp with a colorful lampshade!

Steinbeck, want to know another way you are a wrecking ball?  You wreck all my peaceful time.Tussle

But you love me!  Besides, this is good exercise for both of us.  Mom said you were supposed to slim down so I’m just helping!

ants

Mom told me tonight that I have ants in my pants and Hemingway agreed!!

dsc_0225

I don’t get it. I don’t have any ants and I don’t wear any pants! Besides, even if I did wear pants, none of those colors up there look good to me.

dsc_0217

Is this another one of those human things that I’ll never understand???

dsc_0211

Steinbeck, you’ll grow very old trying to figure out humans!  Mom has told me before that I had ants in my pants so I agreed with her when she told you the same thing.  I figure it must be a family trait or something!

We think humans have it all wrong.

We’ve had “Labor Day” at our house all weekend and we’re tired of it.

There was a man with strange blue feet who brought in some big equipment and sucked up all our hair and smells out of the carpet.  We thought Mom would be mad ‘cuz he made it wet, but she didn’t care.

Before that Mom and her brother were moving furniture all over the place and we couldn’t find anything!  Our favorite sleeping spots were gone.

Then they used that noisy sucky thing on all the carpets.  Way too much work!!!

First of all, this is the perfect day for naps:

This is my inside out, upside down sleeping pose.  Mom says she can’t even tell where my head is.  Believe me, it is still attached!

This is my adorable pose!  I win!P1040397

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another thing that’s perfect for today is playing with our treat toy.  Mom “hides” treats in it and then we set them free.

Mom?  Did you notice that this feather thing looks just like Hemingway’s tail???  I think that’s hilarious!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, we want to wish all of you humans and fur people a…………

Happy Napping Day

Happy Treat Day

Happy Playing Day

But let’s not call this LABOR DAY!!!

It’s MY Birthday!!!!  This is the day to celebrate me!!! 

I’m five years old today.  That’s one paw, as I’m showing you in that less than graceful pose Mom took of me one day.  I am now convinced that “High Five” was created so we could celebrate five years.  It’s one paw or one hand!  It works for humans and fur people.  It’s pretty neat.

So, we had a little party today and of course Hemingway had to join in.  Mom says we have to share.  When he has his birthday, I get treats and toys, too…..so I guess it’s only fair.

Here’s what happened when Mom surprised me with the toys and treats.

Let's see what all is here!

Let’s see what all is here!

Hemingway has already decided he gets the carrot and I've decided I want the blue fishy.

Hemingway has already decided he gets the carrot and I’ve decided I want the blue fishy.

Oh how I love you fishy!!!

Oh how I love you fishy!!!

It's you and me forever, fishy!

It’s you and me forever, fishy!

Mom here:  I just want to wish my little orange boy a very happy birthday.  It’s hard to believe he’s five.  I still remember when I first got him and I had no idea he would grow this big.  He’s a good companion for Hemingway, even if they pretend not to like each other all the time.  Thanks for adding so much joy to my life,boys.

Copy of P1030195Mom and I played catch me if you can yesterday morning.  Normally she has fun when we play, but this time she got a little annoyed.  You see, it all started when the little angel, Shakespeare

Copy of P1020832That’s me!!!

Anyway, Shakespeare found a little field mouse in the house and he was chasing it around when Mom got up to get ready for church.  She saw him and tried to get the little mouse.  I thought Mom was having too much trouble catching the mouse so I swooped in and picked it up in my mouth and started running…….and growling.

Can I tell you how silly his growl sounds?  It’s real quiet and you can barely hear it.  Sure wouldn’t frighten off any boogey-dogs!

As I was saying, I had the mouse and Mom was running all over the house chasing me.  Then she decided she better start getting ready for church so she wouldn’t be late.  About that time her brother came upstairs and she tattled on me and told him that I had a mouse in my mouth.  He looked and told her that I was at my food dish eating breakfast.  She came and looked at me and asked where I had left the mouse.  I just kept chewing.  Too bad for us, but lucky for her that she found the mouse and took care of it.  She was happy we caught it but she wasn’t happy about the catch me if you can game when she was trying to get ready.  Oh well…………we are cats after all!!!
