Wednesday……All Day

Not Me

Hey Steinbeck……….guess what!  I don’t see Mom at the puter but it’s turned on.


But I just finished eating and after I clean my face, I need to take a nap.  Still…………..we don’t often get this chance.  So, what should we talk about?


I know!!!  We can talk about my pretty feet.

Nobody wants to see your stinky feet.  Maybe we could do a lesson on the art of hiding!

Me first!

I'm hiding


Nobody knows where I and I’ll never be found.

Goofball!  You forgot something!!  I can do better than that!

Hemingway…… forgot something, too!

Boys!  What are you doing?  Who said you could play with the puter?  Oh, and by the way, neither one of you should be teaching a course on hiding!  

Kitty Class 101


Class is now starting for my young kitty readers.  I hope this object lesson is very clear and easy to understand.  Please note:  Humans often put these things called “rugs” on the floor.  For some reason they get upset when we hide our toys under them and they accidentally step on them.  Silly humans!  Even worse is when we hide under the rugs!  To avoid getting stepped on by a human….or even another kitty….make sure that you keep part of yourself showing.

Don’t hide your treats under the rug ‘cuz I’ll find them.

Shakespeare….get out of my class.  This is important stuff and nobody was talking about food!

Hiding Don’ts

This is what Mom and I saw when we went looking for Hemingway:

hemingway hidesMom says Hemingway needs hiding lessons!

I do not!!!  I left my tail out on purpose ‘cuz it’s so beautiful.

Whatever.  Mom says she wants to share a picture she took of the moon the other night with our readers.  Is it okay if she posts it on our blog?

I don’t care.  Leave me alone.  I’m trying to take a nap.


The Moom Dec 6By the way, we were both asleep when she took that picture.  We don’t understand why she wanted to go out in the cold and dark just to use that flashy box.  She always tells us that we can’t go out in the cold and dark.

It’s a human thing!

Silly Humans

There are so many silly things about humans that I don’t understand.

What brought that on now?

Well, last night Mom was looking for me and I wasn’t even hiding or anything.  She stood there calling my name and kept asking you where I was.  Finally I had to make a little meow sound and she looked down and there I was.  I had been lying by her feet the entire time but she kept looking off into space and didn’t even see me.

Hahahahaha….I thought it was kind of funny when she was doing that.  I don’t know why she didn’t just look down.  You were there the whole time and you didn’t move.  Mom gave us a good laugh.

At least she laughed at herself, too.

She told me about a funny thing that happened with her old cat Mischief.  We never got to meet him but he was with her for almost 19 years.  After he went over the Rainbow Bridge, she adopted us.

He must have been quite a kitty since she had to get two of us to make up for him.

I guess so.  Anyway, one time she was looking for him all over the house and couldn’t find him.  She was afraid he might have gotten outside and she went out and looked all over and called his name but she couldn’t find him.  Finally she got the flashlight and started looking under furniture in his favorite places.  She was on the floor looking under the couch and she felt something by her and quickly turned around.  There was Mischief looking under the couch with her.  He thought maybe she was looking for something special and he wanted to know what it was.  She had a really good laugh over that and was so relieved to know he was safe.

Oh, that story just makes me want to roll around the floor meowing.  It’s so funny.  Mom is obviously quite a character.  It’s great to have fun times like that.

We’ve got to figure out something special to pull on Mom so she’ll always have that memory about us.

Oh, I don’t think she’ll have any trouble remembering us!
