Toesday with Minnie

Yello!
It's me...Minnie!
 
Last week my pawsies and I helped mom finish her picture makin games.  She finished the first one she was workin on.
 
 
Mom was so surprised that none of the little toy parts were missin, mol!  You wouldn't believe some of the glares I got when she couldn't find a particular piece she was lookin for. 
Here we are buildin the second picture.  Yeah, I thought I'd try my paw at it...
 
 
But I just couldn't get the hang of it...
I still don't see the point, really...
 
 
So mom finished this second picture too.  She said it was easier.  Proly cause I helped so much.  She wants to glue all the pieces together so she can hang the pictures on the wall.  She hasn't figured out where she can work so somecat doesn't get in the way...something about not wanting pawprints or a cat butt stuck to her pictures...
 
 
I'm not really sure what she's talking about...

I still got it!


There has not been much call lately for my grocery inspectin expertise.  The other day, though, mom came in with a new bag of kibble for Wriggley.  She took him outside to play and take care of business, leaving the food out for me to get into inspect...you know, that bein my job an all.  They were gone for a long time, havin fun with this new toy of Wriggley's, no doubt, so I had plenty of time to do a thorough inspection...




Including the all impawtant taste test!
 
 
First, let me just say that the packaging gets a moderate rating for not being too difficult to open.
I did have to clawr and tear with my teefs quite a bit.
 
 
As for the taste, I must say the flavor was quite good.  Fresh too.
 
Say, you wouldn't know what mom could've meant when she said this was coming out of my dinner...?

Since When?

When has our mom ever paid attention to special events and goings on?!?  She routinely forgets our birthdays and gotcha days.  Did you know this was Take Your Cat to the Vet Week?
And would you believe what our mom went and did?!?
Yes!
She actually took me and Pip to the V-e-t!!!!
 
I'll have you know I checked our bloggie archive
and it has NOT been a year since my last visit!
 
Mom kept me closed in the bathroom my private dining room after serving my breakfast.  I was relaxing and quite enjoying myself when mom came back in, grabbed me, and literally stuffed me in my carrier!  Apparently she had done the same thing to Pip while she was hanging out in her room.
 
Neither Pip nor I had the chance to use the facilities before we left, and mom adds an awful lot of water to my food especially, since my kidneys aren't too good.  Pip and I both hollered at mom to pull over or turn around cause we had to go...but she wouldn't listen.  What's a cat to do, I ask you?  Mom can't expect us to hold it for a squillion couple of hours...
 
At the vet's office mom kept sayin how stinky we were.  Well?!?  What does she expect?  But then she kept calling us Stinky Number One and Stinky Number Two to the Doc and Technicians.  She forgot to bring any extra towells so we made mom wet and stinky too, mol!
 
Pip was having a regular check up and my blood needed to do some tests.  Mom wants to be sure my kidney's numbers haven't changed or gone bad.  The Doc said we were both fine.  We'll both have to wait to hear how our bloods did.
 
So after we got back home mom had some laundry to do (hee hee!).  And then I wanted to be sure everything smelled ok afterwards...
 
uh huh, I think mom did ok on the clean-up...
 
Don't worry!  I did not stay in there for long!
Purrs,
Smidgen

Team Effort

I'm beginning to think folks might be gettin the wrong impression about me.
You know, that I'm such a trouble maker helpful kitty trouble maker an all...
We kitties aren't much for snugglin together an stuff like that.  Though when it comes to hamperin helping mom around the house, we're a pretty good team.


I just clocked off for the afternoon.
But don't worry, 'cause Pip is ready to take over...


And then the other morning, before my shift started, Smidgen was on the job:


Oh, and for the Lounge Kats: yes, the pieces are nommy!


Hee hee!

The Joke's on Her

It's so easy to pull one over on our mom that it almost isn't any fun...
Almost.


See, she was outside with Wriggley and she came in to the tell-tale sounds of...
Ripping!
(Bet you thought I was gonna say yak!)

"Minnie...?"

Now why does she automatically think of me?

Ok, it was me, but to get on with it...

"Minnie!  what are you doing?" she says while thinking "what did I leave out?  What could she be getting into now?!?
::heart beating faster::
*
*

"Whew"

I was shreddin on these papers that were on the floor.  Perfectly legal an all!
See?  She sets herself up for it, really.

Still, she never actually gets mad at us.


I mean really, could you get mad at this face?

Toesday with Minnie

Yello!
It's me...Minnie!


These are my Easy Sunday nappin pawsies...


What was that?


No, believe it or not, it wasn't the flashy box that woke me up.
A dove was cooing away outside on our chiminey.  The sound echoes down and into our house.  It's pretty cool...when you aren't asleep...

Now I could do without the flashy box...
I think I'll move over here by the window...


Have a quiet Toesday, everybuddy!
