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.

Mom Told a Big Fat White Lie


Steinbeck, what are you doing?  Do you belong up there?

I belong everywhere!  Besides, I’m admiring the lovely picture Mom has of me on her puter.  I sure was adorable when I was little!!!   I’m also trying to fix things ‘cuz Mom told a big fat white lie!!

What are you talking about?

Remember how she said that after the holidays she would have more time so we could chat with our friends and tell them about our adventures?

Now that you mention it, I do remember something about that.  However, I haven’t noticed that we’ve been able to post anything on our blog lately.

She hasn’t even turned the computer on for us!!  Harumph!!!

Well, she has been sort of….kind of…..busy…..  Wait a minute……….she’s been taking naps with me!  She did tell a big fat lie.

See?  So, I’m trying to figure out the computer so we can go ahead and tell the world about her.

Now Steinbeck, is that the best thing to do?  Remember all the naughty things you and I have done?  Does Mom go and rat on us………


Slow down.  Does Mom go and tell on us to all our readers?

Sometimes, but it’s usually when it’s something silly like when you try to hide and leave your tail sticking out for the world to see.


But she doesn’t really tell our readers about the bad things like when I broke the lamp shade, or we both ate all the treats.  She lets the readers think we are little angels with only a few tarnished places on our halos.

Are you saying that I shouldn’t tell the readers that Mom told a big fat white lie?

Probably not.

Can I say she told a big fat “Tuxedo lie”?  MOL!!!!

Nope, but I’ll tell everyone she told a big fat “Ginger lie”.  MOL!!  MOL!!!

the boys being good

Happy New Year!!!!

staticThis is how our cousin dog, Static, dressed up for Christmas.  We wanted Mom to call him and find out what he was wearing for New Year’s but she said we shouldn’t bother him ‘cuz he’s probably sleeping so he can be awake when the big ball drops.  For some reason Mom’s been talking about some big ball dropping and we don’t know what’s wrong with her.

Copy of P1030009There’s a big ball?  Do we get to chase it?  Is Static going to chase it?  I want to play with the big ball.  Does it have a jingle bellie thing in it?  Does it bounce real high?  Who is dropping the big ball?  Why are they dropping it?   I just don’t get it.

Copy of P1030122Let me see if I can find some answers on the computer thing.  This is the mousie, right?  Where is its tail?  How come it doesn’t smell like catnip?

Copy of P1030123That’s what you call a keyboard, right?  I don’t see any keys.  I know Mom uses a key to unlock the door and another key to make her car start so she can go places.  Why is this called a keyboard?

Hey………didn’t we start this blog to wish everyone a Happy New Year?

I guess we did but we seem to have gotten distracted.

Two in bedHAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!  We will probably be sound asleep when that big ball drops…wherever it is and for whatever reason the humans are dropping it.

Thanks for all the kind comments and for reading our blog during 2013.  We hope you will all join us again in 2014.  Maybe we can get Mom to leave the computer on more often so we can write more.  We hope all of you have a safe and healthy New Year’s and that 2014 will be an extra special year for you.

Hugs and purrs from Hemingway, Shakespeare and Mom (Pam)

We’re Back……….

Mom told us she was taking a break from the computer at home.   We’ve been real quiet lately ‘cuz we were trying to do what she said.  She didn’t want to turn on the computer and she didn’t want us working on our blog while she was home.  Of course we could have maybe worked on our blog while she was at that work place.

Remember how much fun it was to take those extra sun puddle naps?   The computer isn’t by the window so if we had been working, we would have missed out.

Well, we’re getting kind of anxious to do some meowing.  We need to get in touch with our fur people friends.  My birthday is coming and I need to spread the news.

Hemingway………move over!  Let me type.  Christmas is coming and we need to remind Santa Paws that we’ve been good boys and we want lots of treats and new toys. 

That sounds kind of selfish, Shakespeare.

Now that you mention it, I guess it does.  Well, is it okay if we tell Santa Paws that we would like a few things but we also want to make sure all the other fur people get special gifts, too?

Now that sounds better.  We have to remember those poor fur people who don’t have homes.  They must be really sad now.

I’m very lucky ‘cuz my first Christmas was spent at my home with Mom.  You were born on Christmas Eve so you were too young to know that you didn’t have a forever home yet for your first Christmas.

Oh, but I celebrated with you big time the next year.  We had so much fun!  That’s what we want for all the fur people and the humans.

Yes, we want them to have lots of special blessings and lots of happiness to make their hearts explode with love.

Oh, and we also want some catnip………

LOTS of catnip!
