Keep 'em Guessing

I don't know about you, but I like to mix up my nappy spots.  Just when mom expects to find me in one place, I've moved on.  There was my pillow, under the sofa throw, under Wriggley's bed, the top bunk on Wriggley's crate, to name but a few.  Now I give you:

Mom's been home from her work place all this week.  I just want to be sure she has something wothwhile to do while she's home.  Did you notice how I pulled the towel down over the opening to my cave?  Can't make things too easy for her.

When I do come out, I'm careful to play it cool.
I make a subtle noise in the window, as if I'd been there all along.

Before I suggest it's time for dinner!

Toesday Interrupted

By me!  Yeah...Hollie!

Do you see these big presents from Santa Clawrs?  They were for me!
Thanks, Santa!
See what I got!  My very own cardboardy ESS!

And even another scratchy box...with a bonus catnippy toy.  And tassles!
Actually, I wouldn't mind sharing these with the other kitties, but they don't like scratching on cardboard.

Can you see me?

I got some other catnippy toys too and had a bit of fun with them and the papers...
woo hoo!

Some pawsie-action for you, so this Toesday isn't a total wash.

Well, thanks for letting me share...

I'm gonna go play some more.
Have a nice Toesday!

We Must've Been Good...

We had a nice day yesterday and hope you did too!
We must have been good cause we each got some nice gifties.  The packages under the tree weren't bags of coal!

Wriggley got a big box of cookies.
But he wouldn't share with us.

Each of us got a selection of catnippy toys.

We thought it was kind of funny that we got mom this training manual, and we got some books too!

We've been wanting to learn French, and now we have these two course books.
Of course, paws down, the best present of all was the ribbons and wrappings!

And mom has purposely left everything lying about so we can make a big mess still have fun with it.
Oh!  Guess what?  The big presents under the tree weren't for Minnie after all.  Hee hee!  Not to give anything away, but Hollie will tell you about that later.
Have a nice Monday!

Merry Christmas!

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Luke 2:8-14

Merry Christmas from all of us!
Thank you so much for your friendship, and we wish you a peaceful and blessing-filled New Year!

We are all very excited for Christmas.

I wonder what this one could be...

Oh, all right!  I'll leave it alone.

Gosh...I really wanna know what this is!  Could it be for me?  Lookit how big it is!

ok, OK!
I'll just wait over here...


I don't know about you, but I can't wait for tomorrow!
Merry Christmas, everybuddy!

Where's Smidgen?

Smidgen disappeared again today.
The first place mom looked was under the sofa throw...
Nope, not there.
How about on her pillow?
Not there, either.
She wasn't under the bed, or in any of the top perches of our trees.
She wasn't under any of the living room furniture, either.
Our house isn't that big and there are only so many places a kitty can hide.

Just as mom was about to check the bedroom closet...
...say, that's a funny looking lump to Wriggley's bed...


oh all right!  I'll move!

Oh, Minnie!

We were hangin out, watchin some movies this afternoon.  Mom got a new Hello Kitty fleecey blanket and I wasn't too sure about it.  It didn't feel right or something and I wouldn't set paw on it.

So I made myself comfy on the six inches of space on mom's chest where there wasn't any blankie.

Mom kept sayin stuff like "Minnie, I can't see" and would shove me off.  She pulled the blankie down so I'd have room lower on her chest and stomach...but I just didn't trust that fleecy thing!  So I went back to mom's neck and shoulders and got comfy.

Then it was "Minnie, I can't breath" or "Minnie, your paw is on my windpipe!"  "::Gasp::"
And she'd shove me off again and again.
Fine!  I can take a hint!

I'll just watch from over here.
"Minnie, look, the blanket is moved.  Come sit with me."

Toesday with Minnie

I'm innocent this time!  Really!

I'm back here in Smidgen's room, on mom's her pillow...

...havin a bit of a bath.
Course, I'm not admittin to anything that happened the other day.  Afterall, mom never actually saw me knock the tree over...why, I was just there checkin things out, you know, makin sure the ornaments were ok an all!

Did you hear that, Santa?!?

X-treme Bird TV

Check out who was hangin out in our yard yesterday:

We're pretty sure s/he's a Sharp-shinned Hawk, but it might also be a Cooper's Hawk; they're both awfully similar.

Every year we see them at this time, or evidence of them.  See, Sharp-shinned (and Cooper's) hawks mostly feed on birds...and we have the bird feeders in our backyard...
Sorreh little birdies!

Mom used to blame the pile of feathers she'd find in the backyard on the neighborhood kitties.  Until one day, as she rounded the corner of the house, she just about walked smack-dab into a hawk with it's, er, lunch!

After studying our picture and the pictures where we linked to, we're thinking our friend might be a Cooper's Hawk. Check out the tails.  But then again...the more pictures we look at the more confused we get, mol!  What do you think?

At any rate, we think it's cool to see these beautiful birds up close!

We're Ready!

Did you hear that, Santy Clawrs?  We're finally ready!

Mom had to go on a trip last week for her work place and she said we'd have to wait until she got back to put up our Christmas decorations.  It's like she doesn't trust us while she's away or least she was good for her word and we decorated today!

First we hung our stockings on the mantel..

Then mom got out the tree.  She almost forgot where she had put our ornaments!  Well, most of them are doggy ornaments and we wouldn't mind losing those... but the only kitty ones we have were in the same box!

Mom was up really early this morning cause she's still on east coast time, so we got her busy stitchin up a little skirt for our tree.  Hmmm...maybe she should've traced around the outside of the hula hoop when she made her pattern...

Well, at least the tree stand is covered.
Say, I can still smell the Lounge Kats...

What do you think, Smidgen?

Where are all the presents?

Here's another angle in case you want to see more of the dog ornaments.
Happy Holidays, everybuddy!

Go to Work with Mom Day!

by Wriggley.

Mom abandoned us all this week for a work trip she had to go on.  When mom leaves, my kitty sisters get to stay home but I'm packed off to camp.  This time I went to winter camp.  This morning mom picked me up and I got to go to work with her!

I was mom's "4-legged assistant" she said.  It was my job to behave myself and not be a distraction to anybuddy.

I did a pretty good job cuz when people came into mom's office, they were surprised to see me.  I got to see some friends again that I hadn't seen in a while and I got some good scritches. 

But to be honest, mom's job is pretty boring,at least there in the office, so I was really happy when we left.  It's no fun just being quiet.

It sure was nice to get back home.
Oh, I had a fun time at camp, too.  I got to do some fun play and walk activities.  And I got a good report card from the camp counselors!

I even think my kitty sisters were glad to see me!
