Hollie Day

Um...hai...remember me?
The lady has been home from her workplace for the past week.  It's been nice cause I've gotten to have more house time.  When the lady is here, she wedges my door open a bit so Smidgen, Pip, Minnie and I can hiss at talk to each other if we want.  Oh, there is also this gate across my door.  I have to tell you that I am getting good at opening my door even more so I can let myself out of my room.  I am also pretty good at jumping that gate thingy without making too much noise.  Yeah, sometimes I just knock it over.
My door is open for real now so I'm gonna do some exploring...
I like to see the different view of the back yard.  Do you see our Christmas tree?  Yeah, it has mostly dog ornaments on it...but the lady is starting to get more cat ones.
I like to climb the wall shelves too.
The lady doesn't think I'm too good at this cause at first, I was a bit wobbly on the shelves, especially climbing down.  I'm better at it now.  I just like to make her nervous...make her think I'm gonna jump all the way to the floor from way up here.
Since I've gotten so good at opening doors, I can't understand why I can't get this one open.
When the lady hears me trying to reach and work the door knob, she comes to see what is going on.  I meow and meow at her ask her to open the door for me, that I want to go into this room, but she doesn't understand.
So when she leaves, I have to keep at it.
I have some work to do here, guess I'll see you all next year...'k?
Happy New Year, everybuddy!

Smidgen Approved

This is a Smidgen-approved nappy spot.
What makes it Smidgen-approved, you ask?
The pillow underneath it all is also inside of a water-proof cover.
Do you see the blue pillow just above me...
That pillow is also Smidgen-approved.  Now mind you, this "Smidgen-approved" deal has nothing to do with where I want to's just where mom doesn't mind should I have one of my accidents while I'm sleeping.
I have been accident-free for a couple of months now.  And lately, I haven't really felt like napping in those particluar pillows.  I decided  I would rather sleep in the blankets you see above or on mom's pillow.  I must say, I've made her a bit nervous!  Oh she of little faith!
Today though, she set her pillow and blankets up so I can't really make them into a bed I thought I'd give her a break and have a sleep in the blue pillow again.
 Well, as much as I hate to admit it...
 This Smidgen really does approve!

Thankful Thursday

Mom is thankful she had Wriggley and I to help her finish her picture game.
Really, she did finally finish it.  Show 'em, Wriggley!
The sky part was the hardest, so we had all been lending our paws.
hee hee!

Merry Christmas!

Dear friends, we'd like to thank you for being our friends, you all mean so much to us!  We wish for you a joy- and blessing-filled Christmas or holiday celebration.
We'd like to take a moment to reflect on the true reason for the season.
"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."
Luke 2:10-11 KJV
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
John 1: 14 KJV
"In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."
John 1: 4-5 KJV
"But to all who received him, who believeth in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God."
John 1: 12-13 NRSV
Happy Birthday, Jesus!
Have a wondrous day, everybuddy!

Rainy Day Games

It's a rainy day here.  Mom is trying to do stuff and says I keep getting in the way.  Mom and I are playing a fun new game.
It's called Boomerang!
Mom moves me out of the way...
and I come right back!
Sorry for the blurry pic-shers but this is an action game!
hee hee!
Try it!  Even if it isn't raining, this is fun.  Your peeps will enjoy it too!

We are supposed to have a rainy weekend.
Between Thursday night and yesterday, we got a good soaking.  Mom took Wednesday off so she could take Wriggley in for a check-up.  Thankfully she had time to mow the front yard before the rains came.  I was tired of having such a sloppy view!
So far today there has been clouds and sun.
I'm embarrassed to say that I had a bit of a yacking incident on my kitty-print pad this morning.  I was all set to clean it up myself but mom muttered something about gross and that she'd take care of it.  My nappy spot isn't quite the same without my kitty blanket but I'll make the most of it until mom can do some wash, I suppose.
Ahhh!  Here is some sun!
Wriggley and mom took advantage of the sun all ready and went on a walkie.  Mom said there was clouds over the hills to the west of us and she could see rain falling a ways away.  There is snow on some of the higher hilltops, too!  She wished she had the flashy box with her because she said the Sutter Buttes were shrouded in clouds and it looked really pretty.
Well, between naps and keeping an eye on the neighborhood, I'm in for a busy Caturday!
Have a good one, everybuddy!

Just because

Just because I can be seen here returning to the scene of an alleged crime...
It isn't obvious, but something dastardly is apaw.
...and just because you see me here licking my chops...
...and just because I won't leave this mutilated package alone so mom can take a picture...
In no way reflects that I had anything to do with somekitty surfing this almost full bag of treats off the counter, ripping apart the package, and eating all the treats inside.  I mean, the evidence is circumstantial at best!
Really, mom, don't forget Smidgen is out and about too.
Mom found the, er, evidence, after we had dinner, so she couldn't hold back any of my meal. But then she said something about docking tomorrow's breakfast and maybe dinner.
...hmmm...I wonder what she could mean...

Toesday with Minnie

It's me, Minnie!
My pawsies and I are coming to you from atop mom's shoulder.
We had a cold and stormy weekend and mom was playin with her activity mat again.  She wouldn't oblige with a lap to snuggle on so I had to jump onto her shoulder and make myself comfortable around her neck.
Yeah, it's not what I'd call ideal, but what's a kitty to do?  Mom was moving around a lot so I had to break out the clawrs to hang on.
And then mom kept sayin stuff like, "ow my neck"...and "Minnie, you're giving me a stiff neck"... and some other general whining that I wasn't really paying attention to.
But then she had the nerve to say, "Minnie, you weigh a ton!"
Would you believe it?!?!?
And after all the help I was...
This is the piece you want, mom.  Really.
Have a great Toesday, everybuddy!

What Minnie thinks about being rousted!
Thanks, mom!

Give 'em what they want

So Zoey's post today got me to thinkin.
See, sometimes I like to stretch my pawsies out on the cat tree.
Mom thinks this is super cute but every time I do this, by the time she gets the flashy box, I've jumped down from the tree.  This time I thought I'd humor her and let her get some pictures.
You know, give her what she wants an all.  Besides, it's never too late to make points with Sandy Clawrs.
oh yeah!
The two paw dangle gets her every time!
Feel the stretch!
you got what you came for...
can I move now?
