Monday Mischief: Traffic Jam

It is not easy to go up and down the stairs when there are all these furbabies blocking the way. I have to be really careful, because of my back, and trying to step around these goofballs is dangerous. But, how can you not love these faces as you ascend?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Nine & The Fly

K8 took this photo a couple of years ago of Mr. Nine and a bug on the backdoor screen.

Isn’t it so spring? What’s your favorite bug?

Caturday: Gertrude, the Angel

Gertrude’s Request

The other day, as I was sorting through some real pictures, you know the ones we took before digital cameras, I came across this 2005 of Gertrude and me. She loved to pester me whenever I was eating or reading or basically doing anything. Noel reminds me a great deal of Gertrude. Gerty left us in 2007. It’s funny how some of them burn a bigger hole in your heart.  Maybe it’s time for a long-haired calico again?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Why Cats Nap

Did you know that cats sleep an estimated 18 – 20 hours a day? If you own a cat you know that they are most active when it is dark out and especially at dusk and dawn. You want to sleep and they want to play. Then, when you get up in the morning they have breakfast and go to sleep. If you have ever brought home a kitten, this can drive you crazy.

Well, domestic cat behavior is not that removed from their ancestors, the large cats like lions and tigers, who hunt at night. They lay low at the darker night-time and warmer day-time hours, when other predators may be out and about. Have you seen your kitty play like she is stalking and capturing her prey, just like a big cat would? All of that is just inherited cat instinct, like when to sleep.

Your indoor domesticated cat will adjust its sleeping schedule to be with you during the day more, especially around its feeding schedule, but outdoor cats tend to stay on their instinctual night schedule. I figure if we understand that our cat is just being, well a cat, it might help us understand why they do what they do. Sweet dreams, Kitty!

Monday Mischief: Nice 2 Come Home 2 You

After a walk, it is nice to come home to cats waiting for you at the front door. It is so welcoming. Especially, if it was raining on you. Louise hates the rain, but she loves a walk. Sometimes it is a hard choice. But, it always nice to come home to your friends.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: We Love Mommy

We just love our Mommy so much. Who else would put up with all our whining and antics? She has the best lap in the Mom business, especially when there is a blanket on it. And, she gives us the best treats.

Happy Mommy’s Day to all the caretakers out there. You deserve more than just one day!

Caturday: Willkommen!

Mini Cooper and Nine caught a moment of quiet by the front door while the dogs were busy upstairs.

They love to watch the world go by. Don’t you?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: The Watchers

These two are good together when they have a joint mission; like sitting at the top of any stairs and watching for intruders. Charles has begone to bark more than Sofie (if you can believe that?) to keep aliens from attacking the homefront. That includes every package, food delivery driver, or occasional friend of the family.

Sofie: Do you see anything there yet, Chuck?

Charles: Hey, Sof, we need to protect Mom from the aliens!! You with me?

Monday Mischief: Box Wars

I am not sure that I need to tell you the story, because the story kind of tells itself. Just so you know, Noel retained possession of the box for most of the evening. Enough said?

Black and White Sunday: Entertain Me!

Charles here: I do not understand why these humans want to just sit and watch the idiot box all evening and not give me tons of treats and play with me all night. I bark and give them hints, but they just don’t get it. I am bored. Entertain me, people!
