Thankful Thursday

We've really been giving Wriggley a hard time lately, and well, we are feelin a little bad about it...just a little...maybe...

We proly wouldn't even have all of our super duper deluxe super extra large cat beds in the first place if it wasn't for him (our mom can be pretty cheap that way).

Minnie wouldn't have kibbles and cookies to inspect.  Or any groceries for that matter.  Mom would have the time to do it herself.

Yow!  I'd be out of a job!

I think Wriggley is pretty cool cause I know when I'm around him, Pip will leave me alone!

It pains us to say this...and this is proly gonna ruin our reputation as cats, but...
we're thankful for our doggy bro...maybe...just a little...

Even if he does slobber all over our kitty toys...

And no, this doesn't mean we're giving your beds back!

Toesday with Minnie

Don't mind me, I'm just relaxin in Wriggley's bed my super duper extra large deluxe cat bed.
This is the life!
I highly recommend these beds to everycat.  There's plenty of room to stretch out if you want, or you can snuggle in and be warm and cozy!  If you send your pawrents out looking for one for you...I think they call them dog beds in the stores...

Not that that means anything.   Consider it more like a suggested use.  All of us here have been using these super deluxe super duper extra large deluxe cat beds with no bad reactions... wait hang on...

mom just threw my wormie toy and I have to go fetch it up... was I?

Training Progress

I've been working with mom on paying attention to where I'm at in the kitchen so she doesn't step on me.

Surprisingly, I've made some good progress.
The other morning, as I was sitting behind her, she was actually looking out for me.
In fact, quite often she was even jumping about and dancing all over the place.

See, she was stepping on creases in this towel, and she kept thinking she was stepping on my tail!
I don't think I was even in the kitchen at the time....

Toesday with Minnie

Yello!  It's, me again, Minnie!
I'm just about to get comfy on mom to watch some movies.

Hang on...


That's better!
Hey!  Speaking of movies, I made a movie!  Of my pawsies!
I thought it would be fun to show you my pawsies live, so to speak, instead of just pic-shers.

(Click here for a direct link.)

Can't you just feel the velvety softness?  :-D

I edited out a lot of mom playin with my feets.  But you can see what we all have to put up with around here.  Hee hee!  Actually, I am pretty tollerant when it comes to my pawsies... just so long as you don't try clippin my clawrs or anything like that.
So feel free to grab a hold!

Have a fun Toesday!

I Wonder...

So everyday mom has been covering up my blanket project.  I figured she wanted to protect it.  You know, since it's such a work of art!

Well, I got to thinking, don't actually think that maybe my mom doesn't want me to lace the blankie?

My blankie project, all covered up and safe.

Nah!  I didn't think so either...

My blankie project later in the day, after I've done a bit of lacing.

I'm getting ready to start another layer.

The Apprentice

I had some groceries to inspect the other day.  A cat can't be too careful.  I had Smidgen help me out since there was no telling how long mom would be outside with Wriggley.  I'm training her in the finer points of grocery quality control.

This time we had the impawtant task of making sure mom got the right kind of know, all purpose an all...

See Smidgen, first you need to open the you can get a taste...

What do you think?

mmm...I see what you are saying, Minnie.

Yeah!  This is pretty good!  No wonder they call it "Gold Medal"!

Toesday with Minnie

It's me, Minnie!
I'm just hangin on the little cat-pad!

Do you know I'm not really a biscuit baker?
I just kind of flex my pawsies a bit.

This is my closed paw:

oh yeah, I'm purrin too!

Have a happy Toesday!

Signs of the Season

It's getting a little cooler here.  Fall is trying to come in.  Tho' the trees in our yard haven't started to turn color yet.
One sure sign of the season is that I've migrated again from napping with my teddybuddy to napping in my Princess Bed.

oh, sure, it may Look like a paw-me-down dog bed...but it's Not!

Another sign of the season is that our friend Phoebe is back!

 Every year at about this time we see the Black Phoebes in our yard.  They don't come to our feeders cause they eat mostly insects (note to mom: get some meal worms) but we can see them in the trees.  And we hear their call.  I think it's really cool to see them back every year!

And finally, mom can't sit down without one of us magically appearing in her lap!

Do you have any special signs of the season?

Easy Sunday

Oh, I know what you're proly thinkin...
I'm a cat and that's all I do but nap.

Well, I had a busy day yesterday.  Mom did some sewing for us.
And I helped!  I had the impawtant job of holding stuff down:

She stitched together some of the squares from our fleecy grab bag to make a...well, it's not really a blankie, it's more like a cat pad.  She had it almost finished when she broke the needle on her sewer machine!  Can you believe that!?!  At least she had it "done enough" so I could do a preliminary quality check..

not bad...not bad...

Mom also baked puffins for Wriggley (kind of like a pupcake, only muffins, get it?).  'Cept I didn't help her with these.  They were zucchini puffins...not like she was makin anything good like with chick-hen...

Besides, I was busy, er, testing out the cat-pad!
aaahhh!   zzzzz...
I hope your Sunday's just as nice!

We had the winning bid in Annie's auction for some fleecy fabric scraps from the Katnip Lounge.  We got the box in the mail earlier this week, and YoW!  Talk about sniff-tastic!

First Wriggley licked the outside of the box all over.  When mom got it open, he was first to check everything out.

Don't get your dog-slobbers on everything, Wriggley!

Once he nosed through everything, we had a chance to check it out.

Nevermind the neat fabrics...smell this!

We want to get our mom busy crafting stuff for us, but at the same time, we don't really mind just keeping the fabrics out for our sniffing pleasure!

(three days later...)

I can't leave the box alone! that Rupert I sniff? ...or maybe The Baby...?
Thanks, Katnip Lounge!

What's a Pup to Do?

The other day I was trying to help mom in the kitchen.
Except she said drooling all over the floor wasn't helping and sent me to my "place."

My place is my round bed in the living room...
...I did the best I could...

Do you see my problem?

Now do you see?

Don't worry, apparently close enough counts not only in horse shoes, but also in kitty interference on obedience cues.

I still got my cookie reward!
Take that, Minnie!

Toesday with Minnie

"Up on the counter top..."

Ho ho ho!
er...I mean, Yello!

What's that mom?  I'm not supposed to be up here?
I might get into something?  Moi?

It's like you don't trust me or something.
