A Better Day!


Mom says my eyes are brighter tonight.  I want to thank all the fur people and their humans who sent me good wishes.  I was so surprised to hear from all of you!  Mom said I’m a lucky boy!  It’s scary to be sick.  Of course I wasn’t as scared as Mom.  She was an actual twit!!!!

Anyway, when she got up this morning I showed her I was feeling better by eating some of the new food.  Then I took a bath and I flip-flopped my tail so she knew I was on the mend.  (By the way, I didn’t know I was broken!)

I heard that Mom fretted and stewed all day at work and may have driven a tad fast to get home tonight.  I was at the door waiting for her so she had a big smile on her face.


We went outside to enjoy some fresh air.  I don’t get up in the hammock unless Mom is already in it.  Of course, she’ll probably tell you that I use her as a launching pad and she has a big scratch on her arm.


Here I’m checking out the yard to see if there’s something out there that made me sick.  I didn’t see anything.  I told one of my friends that I think a bird spit in my face!  MOL!!!

I’m still not quite as spunky as usual, but when the doctor man’s house called, they said it would take a couple of days.  They were glad to hear I was moving around and eating.  Oh that………..yes, Mom started us on diets today.


The new food is actually pretty tasty.

We’re on diets?????

OK……….who squealed?????

I Scared Mom!


It wasn’t intentional, but Mom got really scared when she came home from work today.  Normally my little brother, Shakespeare, and I always greet her at the door and ask to go outside to play in the back yard.  Well, Shakespeare was at the door but I wasn’t.  Mom came looking for me and I was lying on her bed.  She looked at my eyes and they were at “half-mast” (her words).  I didn’t move and she knew something was wrong.  She called the doctor’s house right away and they told her to bring me over.  I got to see a new Doctor Man and he was really nice to me.  He talked quietly and he petted me.  He took me in back and Mom doesn’t know what all they did and I’m not telling.  (I’m especially not telling anyone about shaving me by my “pooper popper”!!!  That was more humiliating than having my temperature taken!!)  Anyway, they took blood and ran some tests and everything was normal, but I did have a temperature.  When the Doctor Man came out to talk to Mom he told her about some options.  She and the Doctor Man decided to give me an antibiotic shot to see if that will help me feel better.  Did I get a vote in that decision???  No way!!!

I’m home now and I’m resting.  Mom will be watching me and of course Shakespeare will be trying to figure out what’s going on.  What I didn’t tell Shakespeare is that the Doctor Man and Mom talked about putting both of us on a diet.  Even with all the summer exercise, I’ve put on weight and that’s not good.  Mom said we’re going to be getting different food now so I hope we like it.

Just don’t tell Shakespeare.  Let’s just surprise him!!

Say a few words of prayer for Mom ‘cuz she gets really nervous if we get sick.  I’m going to try my best to get well really soon.

Remembering Dads

Mom asked us the other day if either of us remembered our dads.  

We’re not from the same litter so we had different Moms and Dads.  I just want to make that abundantly clear in case Shakespeare says or does something stupid.

Not nice!  Anyway, we both told Mom that we don’t remember our dads.  Fact is, we don’t remember our fur moms either.  Our human Mom is the only one we really remember.

However, we wanted to take time to wish all the human fathers and fur fathers a very Happy Father’s Day!

What about the feather Fathers?  Or even the fin Fathers?

OK Shakespeare, we want to wish every living that that happens to be a father, a very special day.

Does that include trees and flowers?  Do they have fathers?


I’m just going to sit out here and ponder those questions and hope that Shakespeare takes a nap soon.


I told Mom even I could get in the hammock when it’s like this!


MOL!!!  Mom caught me in mid-flight!  She always calls me the Orange Streak.  She wasn’t quite fast enough to get this picture before I was off and running so I’m a little blurry.

We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We were glad that Mom stayed home this time.  She let us play outside today…..

……but we can tell you for sure that it was very hot and very windy!!!

We’re both really tired now.

Meow with you all later…………

Coming Along

Mom got home safe and sound and said she was surprised at how much her brother had done on the deck while she was gone.

She even has steps now so she can get up on the deck without any problems.

Remember we told you all about how graceful she isn’t?  MOL!!!

Anyway, here are some pictures of our adventure tonight.  Mom didn’t let us stay out real long ‘cuz there was a hock circling.

Shakespeare, I think it’s spelled h-a-w-k.


Here I am enjoying a little rest where the hammock stand is currently situated.

I'm looking to see if Mom put any catnip plants under the deck. I'm just watching Shakespeare be stupid.

Sneaky Us!!!

Not MeShhhhh…….we must be very quiet ‘cuz we’re being very, very sneaky!


Shakespeare, quiet!  Mom’s birthday is this Saturday but she’s going to be out of town.

Oh right……..I remember that.  She’s going to a house that has two dogs and no kitties.  She’s going to be very lonely.

Anyway, since she’ll be gone on her birthday, we wanted to make sure something got posted in our blog so she would know we’re thinking of her.  She doesn’t even know that I learned how to turn the puter on so we can do this.  Won’t she be surprised?

Is someone going to feed us while she’s gone?

Of course.  Just relax.

2016 BirthdayWe don’t have any of that money stuff so we thought we would share some of our toys and treats with you.

Are you really going to give Mom some of my treats?  Did I agree to that?

picture-of-a-birthday-cake-with-lots-of-candlesWe heard that it’s going to be two hundred and elebenty billion degrees outside on Saturday and we know why.  Just look at all those candles!!!!

Don’t worry folks.  Once Mom blows out the candles it should cool down a little.  Too bad her birthday isn’t in January!  MOL!!!!Lonesome

Mom, we just want you to know that even though you won’t be with us on your actual birthday, we will celebrate with you when you get home.

Do you like catnip on your cake?

Tuesday Thief

Mom has taught us to share our toys…..

……but respect the “right of ownership” when one of us is playing with a certain toy.

Mom has taught us to share all the favorite sleeping spots in the house….

……..but to respect the “right of ownership” when one of us is asleep in one of those favorite spots.

Mom has tried to teach us not to eat each other’s food…

…or try to steal food off Mom’s plate.  (She readily admits that she has failed at this when it comes to Hemingway.)

We just figure that’s the way it’s supposed to be in the world.

Imagine our surprise when we both looked outside……

…….and saw this thief eating the bird seed!

What??? You don't think I'm a bird???
What??? You don’t think I’m a bird???

Caturday Supervising

The deck is coming along nicely but it isn’t finished yet.

We had to go outside and check on it today.  After all, the humans need our advice on everything!

This is awesome! I can see for miles and miles up here!!
I think Mom should plant some catnip here.

Hey….this wasn’t here the other night.  Now I can walk further.  I like that!
Maybe Mom could put our hammocks out here, too!


Is that one of my toys down there?  No…I guess not.   Mom doesn’t let me bring my toys outside.

All that supervising today juts wore me out!
All that supervising today just wore me out!

Crime Scene

Mom…..did you buy this bag of food with the hole already in it?
So, this is self-service?
What makes you think I opened it?
This is a great way to buy our food, Mom!!!

From the Mom:  Sorry these photos are blurry.  Neither boy would ‘fess up to the crime.  I tried to see if they would look guilty when presented with the evidence and they didn’t!
