Toesday with Minnie

It's me... Minnie!

My pawsies and I are eagerly awaitin meal time.


Why, if you could see all of me, I might be meowin my head off so mom will hurry up all ready gently encouraging mom with my meows so she'll hurry up all ready.


Oh, don't worry.  We've never fallen off the table.  Though there has been a time or two when I decided to jump down.


Oh!  Here comes mom with my dish!


Excuse me, won't you?

Have a great Toesday, everybuddy!

Easy Sunday...?

There I was, trying to enjoy a little Easy Sunday morning bird TV...



"Hey everybuddy, the Cat Channel is on!
Grab some bird seed and pull up a perch."
Maybe I'll just nap the rest of the day...

Toesday with Minnie


It's me...Minnie!
And my pawsies...


We might be hamming it up a bit for the Pawparazzi...
And doin some bird watchin...


Our mom decided not to plant Pip in that pot she had.  Instead she got some flowers and seeds.  Yeah, I know.  Where's the fun in that?!?!?  Anyhoo, she planted her plants and the seeds have even started to grow.  Mom was admiring the flowers on Sunday and then noticed some birds sitting on the edge of the pot, she thought pulling out the seedlings!  She shooed them away and looked...well, they had pulled some leaves from the portulaca plants but the seedlings seemed ok.  Yesterday afternoon when mom went out to water stuffs, well, the flowers were gone!  Somebirdies ate all of the flowers!


We don't think we've ever had that happen before.  Maybe they are tryin to hint at mom to fill the feeders?  At least the little seedlings are ok.  They are special flowers and plants for Monarch Butterflies!

We haven't seen the Woodpecker back again.  It seemed like overnight from Caturday to Easy Sunday that the treat bar we put out for him went from untouched to completely gone; no trace on the ground or anywhere.  We proly should've been watchin the late nite squirrel channel, mol!


That's about it for this Toesday.
Have a good one, everybuddy!

Toesday with Minnie

Do you see what me an my pawsies have today?

It's a Woodpecker treat bar!  Hang on...gotta open the package before we can hang it up outside...

We've been gettin some pretty good action on our Bird TV network.  On Sunday the Hummerbird channel had a lot goin on.  There were three chasin around our backyard and when mom had the sprinklers going, they were flitting through, takin a shower, mol!  But then in the evening we had a surprise special from the Woodpecker Channel!  This was a first for us and it even preempted our dinner time.  Ok, so it was mostly our mom interested in the program...we just wanted our dinnner...

Anyhoo, mom couldn't get a picture cause he was in one of our trees out of range of our flashy box.  We checked our bird book and figured out it was this guy...

Mom thinks even the finches and sparrows were surprised to see him cause they seemed to want to run him off.  Mom said it was funny to watch the woodpecker run around and under the branches to get away from the other birds!  These woodpeckers like ants and bugs and the tree he was in has both - our mom tries very hard not to use chemicals in our yard.  We hope he'll come back and we thought we'd put out some more food options.

Okay...so my pawsies an I are really more interested in explorin on the counter tops.

Excuse us, won't you?  Or what the heck, come on along!
hee hee!

Have a great rest-of-the-Toesday, everybuddy!

Easy Sunday

Another rough start to our Easy Sunday here.
First we had to wait for our breakfasts while Wriggley took mom out for walkies.

Then, as I was about to enjoy some fresh air on the Catio, I saw this introoder kitty out there!

I started to hiss and growl give it what-for but then mom hustled me away back to my room.  I presume she took care of things because when I had a chance to check back, the Catio was closed and the introoder gone.

Yesterday as mom was out and about she picked some flowers for us to enjoy.


There is a small field mom passes every day that is planted in flowers and anybuddy is free to pick some to enjoy.  This is the first time mom has stopped to pick any.  She only had her coffee mug to use as a vase, mol.

She was inspired to do some clean up in our back yard and plant some seeds.

I think I'm ready for an afternoon pick-me-up...

Have a good Easy Sunday, everybuddy!

Monday Funday!

We had some holiday specials over the weekend on our T.V.

Can you tell what I am watchin?  Yes!  Our Squirrel Channel was broadcasting.
hee hee!

On Friday it was just Solo Squirrel.

And then on Caturday, we had the program Squirrel and Friend.

The action gets pretty close.  It was a fun program.

Mom went out yesterday to get some more birdseed and she got some special food for the squirrels.  After she put out the food, the Solo Squirrel program came on again.  Mom was a litte disappointed because besides his own special food, this guy was out hoovering up the cracked corn she threw out there for the doves.  We're proly creating squirrel pests too but it's all in the name of our entertainment :D

Have a great week, everybuddy!

Easy Sunday

The way today started, we weren't sure if it wasn't going to be an unEasy Sunday

Mom had to change up her morning routine with Wriggley so they could get out on their morning walkie earlier, before it got too hot.  Well, what with some other things mom was doing before they left, that meant we had to wait for our breakfast until they got back home!

It was proly close to noon 8:30 when they got back.  Mom started doin some more things outside and then finally she started getting our breakfasts together.  She put our dishes and food out on the counter.  But then for some reason she thought the Kirbymonster needed to get out and eat some furs and dirt off the carpets first!  She started in Pip's room and then stopped.  Whew!  She got Pip's breakfast together and Pip got to go eat.  Then, when she went to let Hollie out of her room, she took the Kirbymonster in there to eat up the carpet fur!

I'm sure you can imagine all of ours state of starvation.
What with our dishes on the counter, and mine with some leftovers in it, Minnie took things into her own paws...

"I'm not in trouble if mom goes for the flashy box first..."

At least that motivated mom to finish up with our meals.
And a small consolation:  us kitties got to eat before Wriggley :)

Now we can all get on we our Easy Sunday!
Have a good one, everybuddy!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day to all of our U.S. friends!

Minnie thought that Independence Day meant this butterfly and feather toy ought to be free of its string...


Ahem.. we hope everybuddy is having a fun weekend and keeping safe.

Sock Monkey Collar!

I got a package in the mail the other day.  See, we had the winning bid in an auction not too long ago for our choice of either a collar, flower, or bow tie from Clara's Collars, donated by Sarge.

There was even a cookie with the package!
Stay away from my cookie, Minnie!

Mom decided on a sock monkey collar.  I'm not sure why she thought my sock monkeys needed a collar.  And would you look?

She didn't even get the size right!  It's way too big even for Texas Sock Monkey!


Awww, I'm kidding!  I knew it was a collar for me.
It fits me juuuust right :)
Isn't it silly, though?

Mom says it is pawfect for me.  Not sure what she is implying there...

This is my first ever collar from Clara's.  Mom and I both think it is pawsome.
She swapped all my tags over to it and now we're good to go!

So mom...whattayasay...let's go!

Thank you, Sarge!
