Caturday: Too Cute To Eject

Noel has her own pillow on my bed but somehow she takes over the whole bed regardless. How do you kick such sweetness out?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: No Bluebird But…

I was looking out the kitchen window, checking on the Bluebird box, and instead of a Bluebird, I had an unexpected visitor: a Pileated Woodpecker.

It doesn’t seem like anyone has wanted to move into the Bluebird box this season, but I will absolutely take a friendly Woodpecker sighting any day.

Monday Mischief: Stringing Me Along

Charles, your Main Man, here: I had to go back to the Vet to check on the stitches that were supposed to dissolve when they took out my molar. My luck, there was one that was just hanging on. I hate to go to the vet. Though I don’t mind being with Mom, I really think that car rides are overrated. They tend to end up in places that I don’t want to be in.

The good news is that the Vet was able to pull that last stitch out and everything looks OK. But Mom says no really hard chew stuff for a while just in case. But, I really like that chew stuff.

Remember to have your human check your teeth regularly to make sure they are in good shape.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Milky Toe

When K8 was little she had a stuffed dog named ‘Milky Toe.’ We thought about naming Louise that because of the white toes on her back feet. Louise tends to lay with her feet a kinder. Have a wonderful Black & White Sunday.

Wonderful Wednesday: Singing The Song Of My People

<Turn your sound on> In the morning, I feed the animals and then I go into my office. It never fails that almost every morning Queen Noel, who eats in her cat window in the kitchen, grabs one of her loveys and sings until I come back to the kitchen so she can present it to me. I assume it is her way of saying either, ‘thank you for the meal’ or ‘feed me more, servant!’.

The story behind the pink arm: I was throwing out a whole bunch of old dog toys a few weeks ago after Sofie passed, and there was this pink arm in the bottom of the toy bin. I put the broken and chewed up toys in the trash but the arm must have fallen on the kitchen floor only to be squirreled away by Noel. She appears to have added it to her pile of yellow birds and ‘puppy’ behind the plants in her window. Now it is one of her morning loveys. She is always so proud when she brings me her ‘kill.’

Monday Mischief: I Want It Now!

When Louise wants something she is not shy about it. As she got older she really started finding her voice. Now she yells at me all the time but in the sweetest, gentlest way. How can you not give this dog another cookie?

(Yes, that is the Canine Acanthomatous Ameloblastoma tumor that you see. She is doing OK right now with it.) 

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Mom’s are for walking on.

Caturday: Cooking With Noel

Noel Here: You all know that Mom has her own cooking site, right? LoriansKitchen.com

Anyway, that isn’t the point. You see she was making waffles this morning and she went to the giant binder of her recipes, because she never can remember anything these days, and I wanted to help her find the waffle recipe. But the binder is huge and she did not want me to sit on the pages or get hurt by the gynormous clip in the center. But, I did not want to move. Oh, Mom keeps her recipes in plastic sheet protectors because that way she can hang them in front of her on the cabinet while she is cooking and also so that when she spills stuff it doesn’t ruin the paper. (Of course, I never help her spill stuff. Actually, she doesn’t let me on the counter when she is seriously cooking stuff.)

Shall I tell you the secret to Mom’s awesome waffles? No, not cat hair, lemon juice. Ah oh, am I going to get in trouble for spilling the beans?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Playful Nine & Sofie Memories

A memory that Peanut found of Nine, Sofie, and Louise. Nine and Sofie were probably about a year old and Lulu a year older than that. I guess it was around 2011 or 2012. Nine and Sofie used to play together a lot back then. Nine loved to play with the dogs. Photographic Memories are a wonderful thing to have. Photographs are a great way to look back and smile.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
