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.

Telling Time

What are  you humans doing?

You have us really confused!

Mom’s noisy thing on her dresser went off this morning and we weren’t done sleeping yet.

We always have to wake her up in the morning ‘cuz it’s time for our breakfast but this morning she was awake before us.

We saw her changing all the clocks last night but we figured she was just trying to play a joke on us.

Why did you humans change the clocks?  Now it’s light when we get up and it’s dark when it’s time for supper.

Don’t you care that it’s confusing to our systems?  Mom tried to explain this daylight savings stuff to us but we got tired of listening. Did we miss out on an extra hour of play time or were we supposed to sleep an extra hour?

I think I have an idea.  When all the leaves fall off, the trees are embarrassed so they want darkness to come earlier at night when the humans are home from work so the humans don’t have to look at naked trees.

I get it.  Then when the leaves start coming out again in the spring the trees are so proud that they want extra daylight in the evenings when the humans are home to enjoy the pretty leaves.

Hey…………did we lose an hour of eating in there?????
