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!

Howdy, Readers!  This has been a fabulous day for me.  When Mom got home from work she was kind of acting funny.  She was being super nice to both of us.  Wait, that sounded wrong.  Mom’s always nice to us.  However, I was thinking she was up to something.  I was right.  Next thing I knew I was in the car and we were heading to the doctor lady’s house.  Mom kept telling me not to worry.

Here I am trying to melt into the chair in the waiting room.

scale

Here I am trying to melt into the scale.  Would you believe I fell asleep in here?  Mom was real proud of me ‘cuz I’m down to 19 pounds now so I’m a slim, trim, dude!

Doctor Lady

Here’s the doctor lady looking at where my tooth used to be.  I let her do that without any problems.  Mom told me I was real good.

for me

When I got home, Mom said there was a surprise for me.  I actually got something in the mail!  Steinbeck thought it was for him, too.  However, it was just my name on the envelope.

Hiding

Here I am protecting my mail from others!

Tooth Faiy Gifts

These are my neat gifts from the tooth fairy.  Of course Steinbeck thought he should check everything out as well.

Steinbeck pouncing

Here’s Steinbeck “pouncing” on one of they toys.

Here I am protecting one of the toys.  If you notice on my leg, that’s where they shaved off my fur.  It’s growing back nicely.

So that was my Monday.  Not bad!  I hope all of you had a super Monday, too.

Yesterday morning I had eaten a good breakfast, made sure all my furs were in place, settled down in a comfortable position to wait for Mom to leave for work, when……….

Here I am!  Can I lie down by you?  Can we measure and see who’s longer?  Did you enjoy breakfast?  Is Mom going to that work thing again?  What are we going to do all day?  Are you listening to me?

Brotherly Love

Humans, do you see him over there? He’s right next to me!! He’s pretending to be good but he just asked elebenty billion questions!

Mom!!!  Hemingway is ignoring me!!   Again!!!!!

Are You There

Hemingway! Pay attention to me!!!

Me and My Toys

At least my toys will listen to me. I love my toys!!!

Mom didn’t go to work today so she got to see what our normal day is like.

Of course we didn’t show her all the naughty things we do.

What do you mean we?  Seems she’s always saying, “Steinbeck, NO!”

Of course we spend lots of the day playing.  I like to think I don’t cost Mom much money ‘cuz I love to play with empty boxes, empty bags and of course the stay pieces of paper things I may find.

dsc_0706-copy

After Steinbeck dumps all of toys out of the toy basket, I like to grab my favorite carrot and play with that.

Of course most of our day is spent with me trying to defend my rights as King of the House!  The little one thinks he can beat me up, but obviously he has lots to learn.

Wanna bet?????

After our “slappy paw” dances, we usually settle down for a long nap so we can be ready to greet Mom when she comes home from work.

I try to find a spot by myself so I can get some good zzzz’s in!

I’ll sleep pretty much anywhere…..as long as I can keep an eye on things!!

Hemingway still doesn’t have much interest in this toy and now he’s almost seven!  He’s also way bigger than the toy!

Mom said we should set up our selfies together to prove that we can actually play together.

MOM…………Hemingway is knocking all the treats out of the toy and not letting me have any!

Long ago I was adopted by my Mom.  I’m going to be seven on Christmas Eve.  That’s a paw and two claws!  I’m wise……at least I think so.  Well, with the addition of this little “spitfire”, I’ve realized some very important things.

  1. I used to be a morning kitty and an evening kitty.  I still get up really early ‘cuz Mom’s brother gets up early and he feeds us.  However, I’m too tired to party late at night now.  (Kind of like Mom!  MOL!!!)
  2. Toys are fun only at certain times.  Steinbeck thinks toys are to be played with twenty-four hours a day!
  3. I have certain toys I really like.  Steinbeck thinks EVERYTHING is a toy……including Mom’s toes!
  4. I like to sit in the window and watch what’s happening outside.  Steinbeck has learned that trick and now he always wants to join me.
  5. I don’t like medicine in my food but since Steinbeck came, Mom has to give me some medicine to make sure I’m safe.
  6. I like to wait for Mom when she comes home from work.  Now Steinbeck tries to join in and get all the attention.

In conclusion, it’s hard being an older brother, but I’m kind of getting used to this little one.  Sometimes I have to swat him ‘cuz he’s obnoxious, but I try not to swat too hard.  I’m hoping that he’ll eventually settle down.  At least he doesn’t try to curl up with me when we’re both on Mom’s bed.  I want to cuddle with Mom…….not him!

Mom……..do we really have to let this little critter write on the blog????

P1050372

Mom…….is this food for me as well? It’s not??? Too late………I already ate some.

Hemingway won’t get mad if I play with his toys, will he?

P1050381

This is fun!!! I could play with this all night.

P1050382

I’m only letting you play with my toy ‘cuz Mom is watching. Don’t be stealing all my stuff!!!

The two pictures above are like deja vu.  The horizontal one is Steinbeck when he first discovered the refrigerator.  The vertical one is Shakespeare when he discovered the refrigerator.  I think this helps prove to me that Steinbeck was meant to be in our home……..in spite of what Hemingway may think right now.
