Wednesday Wonderings

Cue the spooky music.


Mom’s going to talk about all your strangeness again.

I’m not strangeness.

You’re strangeness catified.

Am not!

Well, Mom was looking through her elebenty billion photos and was amazed at how much alike you and Shakespeare are.  She’s mentioned it before, but I must admit it is a little spooky.  I’m just glad I’ve always got my tuxedo on so I can’t be confused with you two ginger guys.

Life with gingers is so much fun, even if Hemingway gets a little tired of it.

Retro Cinco de Mayo

Way back in 2011, when Steinbeck wasn’t even a speck in his mommy kitty’s eyes, my previous ginger kitty, Shakespeare, tried to find out about this special holiday.   I haven’t checked to see what Steinbeck thinks of this special day, but here’s what Shakespeare thought.

Angel Shakespeare as a kitten

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!

Ginger Deja Vu

I find it rather interesting that Steinbeck often shows so many characteristics of Angel Shakespeare.  Of course Steinbeck is very much his own cat, but every now and then a little Shakespeare comes out.  I love it!

Here’s an example.  Both of them selected the top of the computer desk as one of their favorite spots for watching the world and napping.  

Here’s Angel Shakespeare taking a nap:

Now here’s Steinbeck in the same spot:

Hemingway likes to get up there, too.  However, he doesn’t do the “ginger pose”.  He has his own way of sitting up there.


My boys!

Sunday Angel Selfie

Mom told us she didn’t want to help us with the camera today and we were fine with that.  We’re all sort of depressed ‘cuz the angels have opened all their bags of powdered sugar and they’re letting it fall on us.  We thought maybe if we posted a selfie of Angel Shakespeare, he could go tell the angels to knock it off and turn the ovens back on.  We can only hope.

Here’s Angel Shakespeare visiting us for a Sunday Selfie.
