We have a window. From this lovely perch (not the fish kind), we can see all sorts of things.
Sometimes we see doggies walking on OUR street!
Steinbeck, don’t be selfish. Sometimes we see birdies and butterflies.
Oh……..and remember the kitty I saw underneath the window?
Yes, that is the kitty who lives next door.
I’ve even seen squirrels running around the flowers, looking for stuff from the bird feeder.
I had my mouth open and Mom said a fly might go in there! YUK!!!
Sometimes I get to sit quietly at the window all by myself. I dream of a world without orange. I dream of a front yard filled with catnip. I dream of peace and quiet. (Mom says sometimes she dreams of that, too……especially when I wake her up at 4:30 in the morning!)
However, the reality is that I’m surrounded by orange! Even the table kitty is orange!
I guess it’s really not that bad. I do have my little brother to help me look out the window. Sometimes he warns me if there’s something spooky out there, but most of the time he’s just busy looking all over the place.
So, that’s the “tail” of our window. Don’t worry. We actually have plenty of windows but this one is our favorite. We can see when Mom comes home from work.
Hemingway, do you hear Mom getting something out of our treat drawer??????
Happy Caturday to everyone! We had something very unusual happen at our house today. There was a parade that went right by our house complete with drums, horns, and a FIRETRUCK! Mom went outside but we stayed inside and watched from a safe distance. We decided to let the firetruck be the subject of our caturday art today. Here’s Mom’s original picture:
Here’s after she “artified” it with LunaPic. She said she’s sorry but she wasn’t paying attention to what all she did. (Typical….MOL!)
Don’t forget to check out what our other friends did for their Caturday Art.
Mom got me all excited about taking a field trip tonight. She put my blankie in the box I like to play in and she even put a toy in there. Then she put me in there! Next thing I know I’m in the car and we’re going somewhere.
When she finally let me out of my box, I knew I was in trouble.
I found a chair to hide behind where nobody could see me. If you notice, there’s a treat on the floor. The doctor lady tried to bribe me with a stupid treat but I didn’t fall for it.
Then the doctor lady came to talk to me and she was being all nice and friendly.
I even had to do a squishy face for them!
I tried to distract them so they wouldn’t see how much I weighed. Here I am thinking really light. It didn’t work. Would you believe I weigh 12 pounds!!! The doctor lady said I could lose a little weight. How rude!
Maybe I should run away from home. I can’t believe that doctor lady said I should lose weight! Only Hemingway needs to lose weight. Not me!!!
Mom! I don’t like your idea of a field trip at all. Don’t ever try to pull that on me again. Now let me eat and leave me alone.
From the Mom: Tonight Steinbeck made more noise than he ever has. Usually at home he just has this quiet little squeak. Now I know that he’s been hiding a very loud voice. Oh boy can he sing the song of his people at the top of his lungs!!! He’s not Mr. Mellow Cat at the doctor’s house like Hemingway is, but they all love him there ‘cuz he’s so soft and fluffy. He did great with his shots and his nail trim and I was very proud of him. He was pronounced fit and healthy so he doesn’t have to go back for a year.
