Tuesday Tuxie Thoughts


So, last night Mom and I were sound asleep.  Suddenly I had a “nightcat”.  You don’t know what that is?  Well, humans call them “nightmares” and that doesn’t make sense to me.  Humans aren’t horses and neither am I.  Since the humans are too lazy to make it the right word, I decided I would.

In the light of day I don’t remember what my “nightcat” was about but it sure scared me.  I like to sleep up by Mom’s head so she can hear me purring.  We were both sleeping soundly and suddenly the “nightcat” made me fly out of bed.  Luckily Mom had her hand up by her face and that’s what I used as my launching pad.  She flew out of bed then, too.

She had that red stuff coming out of her hand and she had to take care of it.  She told me it was very lucky for me that I used her hand as the launching pad and not her face.  Needless to say I didn’t get to sleep in her room the rest of the night.

I wish I could remember what the “nightcat” was about.  Maybe I was afraid Shakespeare was going to eat all the food in the house…….


I was sound asleep in another room so don’t go blaming me for your “nightcat”!!!

Mom Got a New Toy!!!

New Toy

We had to chuckle ‘cuz the first time she tried it out, she hit the ground!  The only reason that happened (she says) is ‘cuz it wasn’t adjusted high enough.

Oh sure, Mom!!!  Remember just last week when we “accidentally” told our readers that you were klutzy?

Well, tonight she got on it with no problems.  She was relaxing from her day at the work place and waiting for supper to finish cooking.

We were both outside playing and checking for bugs, birds and other interesting things.

I looked over and Mom looked soooooo comfortable.  She even had a smile on her face.  I decided I should join her.  So I jumped right up there…

You did not!  Mom had to say, “Jumpie up!” before you got up there.

The point is……I got up there and you didn’t!  I must admit that I can see why Mom was smiling.  It’s a mighty comfortable thing.  Luckily we both got off just before it started raining.

That ended our night of fun!

Mom’s Laughing at Us!

Mom said we had to apologize for going missing for so long.

Why do we have to apologize?  She’s the one who was missing!!  She didn’t even bother to turn the puter on for us.

Hemingway, Mom had a rough few weeks.

Oh, that’s right.  She had all sorts of singing to do for Easter and for a concert last weekend.  Then she managed to slice her finger when she was cooking something.  We both know she tends to be a little klutzy.

MOL!!!  Mom’s going to get you!!!

Anyway, it just seems like Mom’s been running on empty lately.

I NEVER run on empty!!!  I remind EVERYONE if my food is low!

We know!!!

So, today was purrfect so Mom was working outside and we were “helping”.

I looked for bugs and things.
I looked for birds and butterflies.

We both ran around the yard chasing leaves and twigs and talking to our dog friends in the neighborhood.  We smelled the fresh air and of course we did lots of exploring.  Now Mom’s laughing at us ‘cuz this is what we look like after our adventures.

I had too many adventures and now I’m “cat tired!
MOM!!!  Get away with that flashy box.  I’m trying to take a nap!

From the Mom:  Both boys had way too much excitement today and the two pictures above show what they have been doing since coming in and having their supper.  I knew they were really really tired when neither one tried to “help” me make the bed with the fresh off the line sheets!  Sorry I haven’t been writing, but it’s just been kind of hard lately.  We’ll try and stay on top of things!  We’ve missed all of you!!!
