Mom Plays More Than We Do

You probably wonder what that is. Well, last year Mom got a new toy.

How come she didn’t get me a new toy?

Never mind, Steinbeck. She calls it a Lens Ball and she can take strange pictures with it using her flashy box. This is just one of her tries.

I kind of like this one. I wonder if she’s going to try doing more crazy pictures like that.

Well, she did this one for the winter.

How come the trees aren’t standing on their heads?

She said she manipulated the picture….whatever that means.

I think Mom plays more than we do!

Yes, but we nap much more than she does so she would probably say it all evens out.

Is she going to take a picture of us standing on our heads in that round thing.

I have no idea.

Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidayyyyyyyyyyyy!

Mom always gets excited when it’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Of course if she wasn’t working, she probably wouldn’t have a clue what day it was.

Sometimes she does get confused, though. I’ve heard her complaining when it’s only Tuesday and she was sure it was Thursday.

That’s just how humans are. We just have a couple of pictures to show you today. Steinbeck’s up first.

Oh boy!!!! This is one of my “glamour” shots that Mom took of me. I like all the shading she got. I also like the little freckle on my bottom lip. The other picture is one of me outside. I told Mom that pretty soon she’s not going to be able to see me ‘cuz I sorta match the deck. Good thing the angels have left powdered sugar out there!

OK…my turn now. Mom said she’s going to change my name. See, she seems to have this little problem. She claims that wherever she wants to walk, I’m there! Seriously, can I help it if she always wants to go where I’m going? I think she loves me way too much. MOL!!! Anyway, her new name for me is “Inaway”. Isn’t that silly???? Almost as silly as her wild slipper socks!

Which way are we going?
I thought you said you were going to go right and I was supposed to go left!

Mom’s So Excited!!!

First of all, let us explain something. Mom doesn’t get to go out of the house much. She doesn’t get to see her friends. She doesn’t get to go shopping (which we know she hates anyway).

She does go shopping for our food and treats, however. She said we will always have that. MOL

Back to what I was saying…..since she doesn’t really do much since that Covid stuff came around, it doesn’t take much for her to get all excited about something.

Yeah! We were just sitting there looking at her and she let out a “whoop” after she pointed the flashy box at us. We looked at each other and just giggled.

Here’s what she got a picture of:

It’s just us, Mom!

She just looked at us and said she finally got a picture of both of us sitting still, looking at her, and keeping our eyes open!

It really doesn’t take much to get Mom excited! We both hope this Covid stuff gets out of the world soon ‘cuz Mom really needs to get out and see people!

Bowl of Soup

Do you think I should ask the humans about it???

Humans…………….Hemingway said I should ask you about this ‘cuz he doesn’t know either. Last weekend everyone was talking about the big bowl of soup. Now we were both really excited. We thought for sure we were going to get a big bowl of catnip soup! They were even calling it a SUPER BOWL.

We both kept waiting, but there was no big bowl of soup. Why were you humans teasing us like that??? Do you have more tricks planned for us next weekend?

We can’t wait! MOL!!!

The Angels Are At It Again

If you look closely, you will see NO kitty paw prints out on the deck.

Steinbeck and I woke up this morning and saw that the angels had been busy again. They must have too much powdered sugar up there ‘cuz they dumped some more on us.

This is what we see out the front windows. The snowbanks across the street are getting bigger. We think those evergreens might be scared.
I got brave and stuck my little nose outside and this is what I saw in the back yard.

Not only did the angels dump the powdered sugar, but they also turned on all their fans and made things blow around here. Mom stuck her nose out to get the mail and the door almost blew shut!

And the angels also left all their freezers open ‘cuz Mom says the temperatures are going to keep dropping. I would love to stay up and look out the window to see if there are any dropping temps outside.

However………..this is what we’ll be doing:

Why a Groundhog????

Hemingway, why does a stupid groundhog get to have a whole day? I can easily look outside and see that winter is going to be around for many more weeks. I think we need to have a Steinbeck day. We could have fish tacos and catnip cake. I know all the humans would love that.

Well, I think we should have a Hemingway Day………and I’m not talking about that writer human who had cats with six toes. I think we need to celebrate me. Just look how regal I am. For my day, I want that salmon mouse stuff and tuna water martinis.

How can a fish be a mouse? I think you’re all confused. Did too many snowflakes hit you in the head when you were outside?

Working, Working, Working

Mom didn’t have to go to work yesterday so I’m busy helping her try to catch up on everything today.

She keeps saying that I’m in the way, but I don’t believe her. I know she needs lots and lots of help!
I’m busy doing my arm exercises so I can help Mom get our food down and into our dishes.

Here’s something for our readers to figure out. Just how many legs do you think I have?

Boys, I am beginning to think that you are just wasting the day away. I wish I could play silly games all day. Oh, and Hemingway, lying on my computer keyboard is not really helping……no matter what you think. However, I do thank both of you for the pleasant company today.
