Posts Tagged ‘treats’

Last year I was just a little kitten and didn’t really understand why all those little humans came knocking at our door, asking for candy.  I even wondered if kitties went door to door asking for catnip.

You were pretty confused……in fact, you still are.

No, I’m a big kitty now and I know lots of stuff so I’ll be brave and maybe even look out the window.

I’ll meet you under the bed.  I don’t think you’ll be able to look out the window.

You mean we’re both going to be scared?

Well, there will be more noise than usual and Mom will constantly be going to the door.  I don’t think we’ll be able to nap comfortably.

I sure hope Mom doesn’t forget to give us our treats!

Readers, we had Mom help us with a couple of Halloween pictures for you to enjoy.

Steinbeck Fangs

If you look carefully, you can see my fangs!

Hemingway Halloween

I went for a calmer, more mosaic look this year.

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??????

Cat in a Bag 2.jp

Mom, I looked in this bag you brought home and there are no kitty treats!

We’re doing the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop again with our friends.  Check out what the others are doing.

Mom kept telling us that this was Election Day and we should go vote.  Well, if it’s today, why did she vote last Saturday?  She just went off to work this morning and said, “Bye.  Be good and don’t forget to vote.”

voting

Mr Mouse, this was my first election day and I was scared.  I thought I would vote for the wrong thing. They shouldn’t make us young kittens vote on important stuff.  I just pray I did the right thing!  I can tell you that I voted for free catnip for all the kittens and cats in our country.  I also voted for good homes for all the fur people so nobody is hungry or cold.  Then I voted for an extra treat tonight.  🙂

voting2

Mr. Mouse, I’ve been through this before but I had to help the little one.  He was scared to put any marks on the ballot.  I think he did pretty good so he shouldn’t worry.  I voted for a little free time for myself.  I also voted for daycare for kittens so we adult cats don’t have to kittensit them all the time while our humans work.  I also voted for extra treats!

voting3

Yes, Mr. Mouse.  We did our duty….

…..and so did Mom!

Happy New Year!

Party with your favorite treats!

Don’t fight with your siblings!   (Mom made me say that!)

Don’t drink and drive…..Mom, I’m too young to drive so does that mean I can drink?

The Mom:  only water and tuna water, dear boy

Oh, and greet 2016 for us ‘cuz we will probably be asleep!!

Happy New Year to all our dear readers.  May 2016 be a year of peace, blessings and joy!

Mom said today is Halloween.

She told us the little humans go out dressed as all sorts of things….

….including cats!

Then they go to houses and say, “Trick or treat” and the grown-up humans give them candy.

If we dress up and say, “Trick or Treat, can we get catnip treats????

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!!!

Shakespeare…..I think I found the secret door where we can order our own treats!

What do you mean, I don’t know the password???  Why do I need a stinking password???

Mom says we can’t ignore our friends and fans any longer.  We have to sit down and write to everyone.

If we do that, will Mom give us treats?

Shakespeare, you know that you get treats all the time!

So what should we talk about?  WAIT………….I know!!!  Mom’s no longer a tent!!!

Hemingway Praying

People…..do you see what I have to put up with???  Mom is no longer a temp!  She was never a tent!

Fine!  So what’s a temp?

It means that Mom is now working for the company and no longer working for the agency

So?  She still leaves the house every day and leaves us alone.

But now she has benefits from the company.

She gets treats?

Well, she did tell me that there are lots of food parties there.  However, the benefits she’s talking about include vacation time so she can play with us and medical and dental insurance and stuff like that.

I don’t like going tot he doctor’s house.  I would need lots and lots and lots of assurance.

No.  Insurance.  It helps pay the bills.

Does she have insurance on us?

No.  She said she’s counting on us being healthy.

Well, I can’t be healthy without treats!

Readers…………do I really have to put up with this????

We finished with the puter.  Now where are our treats?

Sleepy Boys

Mom said the humans have gone back to school now.

Sometimes when we’re looking out the windows, we see these big orange things go by.

Mom told us those are school buses taking the humans to school.  We told her we wanted to go to school……..

……….but she told us we couldn’t go out of our yard.

So, we came up with a new idea and you’re going to love it!  We’re going to sit at home and think of things during the day.

I’m going to think about treats and food!

Shakespeare, the topic for today is hugs.  Almost everyone loves to get hugs.  We give Mom hugs in all sorts of ways.

When I eat, I purr.  That’s my way of giving Mom a hug ‘cuz she bought me food and treats.

Mom taught me to sit up for my treats.  I kiss her on the hand and that’s my way of giving her a hug for the treats.

We watch out the window for her to return from work.

Then we greet her at the door.

Of course we run to the door to let her know it’s supper time.  However, we’re also giving her a special hug for coming home.

Thank you for being honest, Shakespeare!

I come (sometimes) when she calls me and she says that’s a special hug ‘cuz I don’t like to be picked up.

I sleep on Mom’s head at night and cuddle up as close as I can get.

I let Mom brush me…….at least part of me!

So, while we’ve been thinking about hugs, we’ve decided they are a good thing!  What about you?

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!!!
