Mom’s not adjusting to this working stuff. She leaves us alone all day but she turns off the computer. We can’t reach the button so we can’t talk to all of our friends. We told her she better shape up!!!
Not only do we not get to go outside and play every day, but now we can’t go outside at all for two or three days. Seems Pam’s brother put down some stuff to help make the grass grow.
We’re not sure why he did that ‘cuz he’s always complaining when he has to mow the grass.
It’s a human thing.
So, here we are gazing out the window:
And here we are showing Mom what we think about not being able to go outside!
We also found out that it was four years ago that we started blogging. We were just young pups then.
I’m not a pup and never was!
Relax…..it’s one of those humanisms again.
Anyway, Mom thought it would be fun to share something from when Shakespeare was little and didn’t know much.
Cinco de Mayo
Hemingway, what is Mom talking about? I’m trying to figure out another one of those “human” things. She said something about mayo in the sink. I went and looked and I didn’t see anything. Am I missing out on something? Do you know what she’s talking about?
Shakespeare, you know you’re not supposed to be up on the counter. I’m going to tell Mom that you’re snooping again.
Well, I’m just trying to figure out what all the excitement is about. I even heard them talking about it on the news this morning when Mom was trying to wake up.
I didn’t hear anything about it but I was busy staring at the dirt again. I love to do that. Maybe I can become the world’s best “dirt starer” and make lots of money for treats and toys.
Hemingway, you are so strange. How can I find out about mayo in the sink?
We could Google it. Mom showed me how to do that.
Hey, I never thought about that!
I can’t see when you have your big tail in the way, Shakespeare! Hey…………is this what you were hearing? Is it Cinco de Mayo?
Maybe. I heard “mayo” and that made me think of sandwiches and you know I love bread. I figured Mom had some sandwiches in the sink or something. If there isn’t any bread involved then I’ll let the humans deal with the “mayo”.
Well, I’m not too sure what it’s all about but I don’t think they mean there’s mayo in the sink. We’ll have to ask Mom about it when she gets home from work. I’m going to go take a nap now. Leave the computer alone!

Staring out the window is NO FUN! I have done it a lot, too, lately. Mom has been busy with errands and friends and author visits. Gah!
Love and licks,
Sometimes humans just don’t get it! 🙂
Awww… we’re sorry your routine has been affected by that work stuff. What’s a cat supposed to do??? Hopefully you can get a nice Bird TV channel looking out that window. Maybe a couple of sun puddles too.
We hear your mom isn’t feeling super well either…sending you all our very best (((purrs)))
Katie & Waffles
Thanks so much Katie and Waffles. We love reading about your adventures. We do have pretty good Bird TV and even Squirrel TV so we can tolerate it. We just like to give Mom a bad time about it. 🙂
It’s such a bummer that you kitties have to be cooped up while your human is working. And now that grass thing!
We’ll eventually get outside again, Summer. Mom says it’s safer for us to stay inside right now. That doesn’t mean we have to like it!
The main thing is that you need to get a treat for Cinco de Mayo.
Well, Shakespeare’s still looking for the Mayo in the Sink! 🙂
It’s a pity that you have to be inside while your Mom is at work – can you watch the bird through your windows and chitter at them?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
We get to watch birds, squirrels, dogs and even humans so I guess we’re pretty lucky.
We don’t have Cinco de Mayo here so I could’ve made the same assumption, LOL Mayo in the Sinko…so funny. Love the look you’re giving mommy thru the blinds. I’m familiar with that look too. Petals snuck out the other day and I had to go get her at the neighbours house. How does mom keep you in the yard?
Well, sometimes it’s hard. Shakespeare knows that the catnip grows on the other side of the fence so sometimes he just have to go get some! However, he doesn’t wander beyond the yard…….usually! 🙂
Sorry you haven’t been able to visit or go outside. Please try to visit us so you can enter our giveaway for a catnip kicker and a crocheted maraca.
Thanks, we’ll let Mom know!

We think work is one of those four letter words that should never be used. 😉 Happy Cinco de Mayo!
That grass thing… yeah, what’s with that! Hope you had a good Cinco. We had moles with our chicken! And very Happy Blogoversary!
Thanks for the Blogoversary wishes!! Mom made a wonderful salsa for everyone at work on Cinco de Mayo but she didn’t let us have any. We still need to work on training her!
