Coming Back

Poor Mommy! She had a fun little trip out of town, but all the travelling made her sicker so she has been lying around in the sun with us for days. She's almost better now, though, and has taken lots of pictures that she is going to post soon. This morning Emma got to play with her bird for an extra long time and can't wait to show you all how it's done.

We've missed everyone!

Emma, Jamie, Thomassina and Bob

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Here I am lounging on the people bed. I like to twist my paws all around each other and purr loudly. Mommy thinks I'm just irresistible. Mommy has a nasty sinus infection, though, so I've been giving her lots of purrs and Emma has been licking her face to try to make it all better. She hopes to let us back on the computer more soon!

Thomassina on Tuesday

I had a very special morning this morning. I was the only cat in the bed! I like to sleep in the human bed, but I usually have to share it with Jamie and sometimes even Emma. This morning I had Mommy all to myself. As you can see, I am both dainty and very flexible so I didn't take up much room at all. Purrrrrr.........

Now I just want to know why my Mommy always keeps her camera on the bedside table by her head?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Our Mommy had to go away for a few days, but she sent one of her friends to spoil us - treats, cuddles, all kinds of wonderful stuff. Unfortunately, the heat continues unabated. As you can see, I have quite the winter coat going. I still sleep on my favorite window box, but I feel compelled to sprawl out more than usual so I can get the breeze from the vent down on the floor.
Even if it is hot, this is still my favorite Sunday morning nap spot. After a strenuous morning of eating and grooming (I don't stay this silky without significant effort after all), I like to just unwind for a few hours or so. Happy weekend to all!

Last Days of Summer

I know it's supposedly autumn, but it's still very hot outside. My furs don't know it's still summer so I keep getting thicker and thicker which makes me feel hotter and hotter. My Mommy tries to keep me inside where she keeps the air "conditioned" (whatever that means), but I need my little yard jaunts.

I like to lie stretched out on the garden bench because then I can catch a breeze with my tummy. I also like to eat grass and look at the flowers (which I don't eat). Here are my favorites:

These are pincushion flowers and they bloom all the way through December if Mommy keeps pruning them back. This picture is from summer when they were kind of little but now they look like big pincushion shrubberies!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Here I am all snuggled up in the human bed. Since I am the smallest of all the cats (only 6 pounds), this is where I go when I want to feel extra safe. I get lots of cuddles too. I've got Mommy trained so that she will pet me even when she is sleeping!

Food Review Friday

I've been living here for a year now, and this "regular meals every day" thing definitely agrees with me. Sometimes I even get extra treats - it's great! Now I'm not the most accomplished restaurant critic, but here are some things I've had the pleasure of tasting here at the ranch:

kibble - always good; I don't obsess over it like Thomassina but it's good stuff

tuna juice - *swoon* This is totally the nectar of the gods. Whenever it is served, I feel compelled to lick the chef with appreciation.

turkey and giblets cat food - this is one of my favorite cat food flavors..there is just something about this one that makes me think of birds...and thinking of birds reminds me of my favorite pastime of lying in the next door neighbor's yard and admiring their bird room through the window. Good memories.

any fish flavored cat food - this has just the right combination of qualities to make it totally appealing: lots of flavor and an amazing stink that just lights up the whole house!

crickets - I've tried a few of these and they are nothing to write home about.

dust bunnies - my Mommy lets these roam the house largely unmolested and I've tried a few; They really don't taste good and sometimes they make me sneeze.


PS As you can see, I am definitely a member of the clean plate club. This warrants a tuna treat, don't you think?
