This is us relaxing on the deck a few days ago.

Tonight we’re inside and we’re not happy about it.

In fact, we’ve been inside all week.

Mom said all the angels were baking chocolate chip cookies and brownies and they all left their oven doors open so it got super, super hot this week.

She said she didn’t want us going out when it was so hot but we know that she’s the one who didn’t want to go out and play with us!

Mom said there were more reasons she didn’t want us going outside.

She said something about the Raptor Center releasing a Cooper’s Hawk youngster in our neighbor’s yard last week.  He was hanging around here looking for the older hawk that’s been in this area.  You see, the young one didn’t know how to hunt yet so they were hoping he would get lessons from the older one.

Hey…..I know how to hunt!  I could teach him.

Shakespeare, Mom doesn’t want you messing with any hawks.  She said they are dangerous for us little and not so little kitties.  Here’s a picture of one!

Is that the one in our neighborhood?

Nope.  Mom hasn’t seen him yet or you can bet she would be out there with the camera.

I guess we’ll just have to stay inside in the cool air for now.  I wonder if those angels would consider making some catnip brownies.  I could go for some right now!!!!

Well of course you would!!!

We’ve Been Thinking and Thinking

Fellow bloggers….we haven’t been very good at writing lately and it’s Mom’s fault.

Hemingway, if Mom reads this she’s going to get mad.

I don’t care.  We’ve been asking her all sorts of questions lately and she’s just ignoring us.

Well, I do agree with that.  We’re just trying to learn things and she won’t tell us. She keeps saying something about being busy.

For one thing, remember that night when all the little humans kept coming to the door asking for candy?

Oh yeah……why do they do that?  I saw some pictures on the computer of cats dressed up in funny clothes.  Why do the humans think they should dress us cats up like funny humans?

Well, why do the humans dress up like kitties and other fur people?  Is it just this one day that they do it?  I think we should make some changes to this tradition of theirs.  So, listen up humans.  We kitties are going to bring about some changes.  This Halloween thing is going to be called “Catnip Treat Night” and the humans will take us kitties to houses in our neighborhoods.  We’ll have special little bags and the humans can put catnip and treats in them for us.

That sounds WONDERFUL. We should probably have this celebration at least four times a year.

Next problem.  What happened to the clocks?   I thought Mom was just playing a trick on us the other night but it seems all the clocks had the same problem.

Now Mom makes us wait an extra hour for supper and treats.  My tummy knows when it’s time to eat and it’s not an hour later.

Why did the clocks change?

Boys……….do you want some tuna water?

Oh boy......we love tuna water!
Oh boy……we love tuna water!
Mom.......I told you not to take my picture when I have tuna water on my face!
Mom…….I told you not to take my picture when I have tuna water on my face!
I think Hemingway splashed on me.
I think Hemingway splashed on me.

Mom…….forget about all of our questions for now.  We’re full and we’re going to take a nap.

Thanks, Mom!   We’re satisfied for now, but you know we’re going to have more questions so be prepared.
