Steinbeck was really hungry. He was wandering around the house telling anyone who would listen.
So I went shopping and got a new kind of cat food. Steinbeck wanted to check it out and make sure I got something good.
OH NO!!!!!! Look what happened…………
He grew into a lion!
He was ready to jump!
He was really big!!!
He grew into a gigantic lion!!!!
Mom, that’s a mighty big tale you’re telling. Our readers are going to think you’ve lost your mind. We already know you have but we were trying to keep it from them. MOL!
Well, the pictures of the lion are real. That was something delivered to our warehouse at work today for storage . The lion was in a large crate and completely covered with plastic wrap so it was hard to get good pictures of it. I would have loved to see that lion running free in the jungle instead of on display that way. However, it was incredibly fascinating to look up close and personal at that magnificent cat. What a unique opportunity for us at work today.
I decided to post my “Mr. Charismatic” look today. Mom says she loves my shiny black furs and my white furs that look like snow. We don’t have any snow here yet and that’s really strange. Mom hasn’t even been turning on her “bun warmers” in the car. I still sleep on her head at night just in case she might get cold.
I hope you enjoy my selfie and I hope everyone has a fantastic week!!
Don’t forget to check out what our other friends posted for their selfies.
Readers, we have a problem! I like to sleep with Mom and she likes it when I purr in her ears. Now that winter is coming, I like to sleep on top of her head so she doesn’t get cold. She doesn’t mind as long as I don’t snore. Some of you already know this about me but I’ll explain to the new people. Sometimes at night I have “nightkitties”. You don’t know what they are? I know some of you do ‘cuz I’ve talked about them before. Mom talks about “nightmares” but I told her that since I’m not a horse, I can’t have “nightmares” so I have “nightkitties”. Oh, and Mom has “nighthumans”, in spite of what she says.
Anyway, when I have a “nightkitty” and get scared, I tend to launch myself off Mom’s head. Of course for extra traction my claws are out a little. That’s the bigger problem! Poor Mom has marks on her face that I made. Currently she has a big scratch on her chin from one of my launches the other night.
Mom says I should launch straight up like the normal rockets and not touch her.
So, I’m wondering if there are any Launching 101 casses anywhere in the Blogosphere. I don’t want to leave marks on Mom’s face. By the way, Steinbeck never does this. Launching sideways is my very own special problem.
This is my pretty new present. It’s a Cat Mat by Mildred. It’s round and has all sorts of pretty colors.
This is my Cat Mat. It is rectangular and the red shows off my Tuxedo furs.
Look……….it shows off my ginger furs.
Steinbeck get off of there!
This is mine and I love it. It’s so soft. It’s like I’m resting on a cloud.
Mine is really soft, too. It’s like I’m in the middle of a rainbow.
I even like to hide under mine!
Did you bring some treats for us, too?
From the Mom: The Cat Mats by Mildred are made by a friend of mine. Mildred’s human can do an amazing job of knitting. He has done so many different things for friends and family. We were talking one day and I said it would be neat to have a little blankie for cats out of some of the soft yarn he has. Instantly the idea became Cat Mats by Mildred and he gave me samples for Hemingway and Steinbeck. Mildred is his cat and she is a Princess. Her Cat Mat is pink with some jewels. If anyone is interested in a Cat Mat, contact me and I will put you in touch with Mildred’s human. He’s just starting this and could do different colors,shapes and sizes.
So………Hemingway talked me into doing this selfie. I had been sleeping very soundly and then a camera appeared. I touched the button and to my horror, this appeared. Hemingway laughed at me and said I looked like I had “bed hair”. Well, he was all wrong with that ‘cuz I was sleeping on the couch so I must have had “couch hair”. Mom said I have to have a date with the brush. I thought she said I was too young to date!!

I’m so excited. I want to should the news from the rooftop!!!
Mom took some pictures outside when she got home. She showed them to me and I was so happy. Before you ask…….no I have not walked in it yet. Hemingway told me I wouldn’t like it. Besides, Mom doesn’t want us going out when she gets home from work ‘cuz it’s getting dark. I hope you enjoy the Snowvember Pictures!!!
Mom, is this Snowvember now? Those people on TV who point at maps and numbers and things promised there was going to be snow today. I figured when I woke up from my nap this afternoon, it would look like this outside:
This is what Snowvember looked like last year. It was my first Snowvember so I thought it would always be like that this time of year.
You were wrong.
Well, Hemingway, so were those weather people on TV. I thought humans weren’t supposed to lie to fur people.
Just look at this, weather humans. Do you see any snow at all by my feet? You promised snow for today. What happened???
This is what I should look like today. My fur should be all white and the ground should be white and there should be little white things falling from the sky. When the weather humans say there’s going to be snow…….there better be snow!!!
Oh mighty weather humans, do you see what you’ve done? You have made it impossible for me to live with this cranky orange cat who thinks it’s Snowvember. Mom doesn’t want snow so I don’t understand why Steinbeck wants it. Is there any hope for me to have a peaceful life??? Oh, and can you take his soap box away from him? Thank you very much.
