Noel is not amused that Nine and Mini Cooper have discovered that Mommy puts an empty box on the dining room table for her. I wish that I could have caught a video last night when Noel was down low in the box, and the other 2 wanted to go in, not knowing she was there, and ‘POP’ she scared them both off the table (for a moment). They are just cracking us up.
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
Why is she making us sit here on this beautiful afternoon when we could be playing in the water?
This chair is so weird and uncomfortable. I am going to fall right through it.
Why is it so hot in October? Mom says we broke a heat record today. Maybe she should reopen the pool?
I’m out of here! Tell me when fall actually comes to the Mid-Atlantic.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
This is a Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. Thanks to BlogPaws for the hop. Head over there and see what they are blogging about.
Do you tie knots in your leashes? Tying knots in my leashes helps me when walking the dogs. With 2 dogs, I do a dance with both leashes most of the time. I use 6 foot leads, of a good weight, and I tie a few knots in them (usually at 3 and 5 feet marks). When I drop a lead, which sometimes I do on purpose to free my hands and pick up ‘you know what,’ and sometimes it just happens, I am able to immediately step on the leash, and because the knot is there, it is less likely to run under the arch of my foot. And there are the times that one dog is closer than the other (which happens often with 2 on the left), so I choke up to the 3 foot knot and don’t have any drag on the ground (I hate muddy leads). It makes me feel like I have a bit more control when I am walking, though I know, if I really need a leash to walk the dogs, I don’t really have any control at all. The dogs humor me though.
What mischief did you get into today?
I can’r find who is managing the link for the Monday Mischief blog hop anymore. Do you know?
Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo❤
Dear Mom –
I just want you to know that no matter what anyone says, you are the best Mom in the whole wide universe, I don’t mean to wake you up at 3 AM barking at nothing. Or chase the cats. Or whine endlessly while you are trying to go to sleep. It was not my fault that the loud noises over head with those light flashes made me so scared that I ate through the door to find shelter in the laundry room. I don’t like noises, Mom. They hurt my head and I want to attack them. I am really sensitive and I don’t like when you are not in the house with me. I stick to you, like thistles stick to my coat, because you make me feel calm and safe. It is not my fault that my brain is wired a little different than other beings. I have these terrible dreams at night and they wake me and make me want to attack the air. I need to always be sucking on something to calm my nerves. Thank you for all the toys, especially the catnip toys, that help me find comfort in every room. Together we can overcome anything, Mom. I am your fluffball, your ‘sodapop.’ I am your Sofie Bear and I know that you rescued me because we were meant to be together. I love you, Mom. I hope that my face shows you that everytime I look at you.
– Love always and furever
Is a cat’s temperament determined by color? I have been reading some interesting studies. Mini Cooper says she is never ‘naughty!’ Does your color match your temperament?
