Where’s the snow? It’s cold out there but there’s no snow. That seems like such a waste of cold. Aren’t we supposed to be conserving or something? We have no snow and it’s cold. That’s not conserving in my mind. Besides, there’s not even any sun!!! If we can’t have snow, can we at least have sun?
Steinbeck, will you quit your grumbling and watch for the squirrels, bunnies and birds? With all the racket you’re making about no snow, they’re going to get scared and stay away.
Fine, maybe I’ll go help Mom make the bed. I know she can’t do it without my help.
Steinbeck, come look. The squirrel is hanging upside down from the bird feeder again.
Hemingway, it’s hard to tell, but he’s looking right at me!
Did that make you forget about the fact we have cold and no snow.
Not really. But at least it gave me something else to do. Besides, I found my kicky-throw-in-the-air toy and that always makes me happy.
Sigh…….It’s a good thing Mom had today off from work. I get so tired taking care of this little one!
Yep, we get to blame Mom again and this time it really is her fault.
Remember when we told you Mom was looking for a job? She tried to convince us to get jobs but we told her we can’t use the phone and we can’t drive the car to jobs so she kind of eased up on us.
However, we wanted her to get a job so she can keep buying us food, treats and toys! Did I mention treats??
Well, Mom now has a job. We’re all doing the Happy Dance.
Not exactly. Now Mom is gone all the time and that means our play time outside has been severely cut back. Just when the sun starts shining again and the temps get warmer, Mom goes and gets a job! Why wasn’t she working in the winter?
Quit complaining. She lets us out when she can. However, she has another problem. She went to see the human doctor man Friday night after work.
I’m glad she didn’t go see our doctor!
She came home with all sorts of meds and told us….
Wait, let me tell! She has bratwurtitist and red hot lungs.
Goof……..she has bronchitis and inflamed lungs. She told us she didn’t realize how sick she was. We heard her coughing and it sounded much worse than when we hack up a fur ball. We knew she was sick. Silly humans.
So, she’s on lots of meds now and she had to stay put this weekend. We got to play outside so we were happy.
Here’s some of our adventures from this morning.
Thanks for being patient while we tried to get Mom to turn on the ‘puter for us again. We hope to do a better job staying in touch, but we know Mom has to get better.
Mom, I was just sitting here gazing out on my land when a movement caught my eye. I looked again and couldn’t believe my eyes!
See that squirrel? He kind of blends in with the gate so he’s hard to spot. However, with my keen kitty eyes, I could clearly see that he came into MY yard, stole some leaves and ran out again. Mom we have to stop him from stealing. His mom is going to be upset with him!
See all those birdies and squirrelies out there eating the seed Mom put out for them?
Well, if Santa Paws comes now, he might scare them and they’ll start flapping wings and twitching furry tails and making all sorts of noise and then Santa Paws will get scared and forget to leave our toys and treats.
I hadn’t thought about that. I wonder if Mom should bring the seed and nuts inside until after Santa Paws has been here?
Maybe we should go talk this over with her.
I’m so glad I have a big brother who notices things like this.
We’ve been “confurring” with our buddies, the Trout Towne Kitties , and we think we’ve come up with a new business idea!
Remember how we were talking about all the leaves that need to be raked in the fall?
I had the great idea to grow trees that would lose their leaves at all different times, but Mom (and other humans) said that wasn’t a good idea ‘cuz raking all the time is just too tiring.
So, we put our heads together with the Trout Towne Tabbies and we came up with a new idea from what they said.
See that little critter in the tree? That’s a squirrel and we really don’t like them coming around our yard. However, they do get rather rowdy in the trees. Now the Trout Towne Tabbies suggested we let the “burds” go ahead and do the stupid stuff they do on the branches and by raising a ruckus, they will make the leaves scatter all over the place. (By the way, they don’t like “burds” at all.) So, we figured if we added squirrels to the idea, it wouldn’t be as bad and might be faster.
Once the squirrels and “burds” knock all the leaves down on the ground, then we can use our big fluffy tails to get them into a big pile.
Mom always says you flip flop your tail like crazy so you might as well put it to good use.
Well, your tail is out of control ‘cuz it’s so long and fluffy!
Let’s not argue. Just use your tail to get that big pile of leaves over here in this bag. Mom will be coming outside to check on us soon and she will be so surprised to see how much we helped.
I wonder if we can make this idea work all over the world? Just think how famous we would be!
But we have to find birds and squirrels to hire for our company and I don’t know if any of them would really be willing to do any work. Maybe we should go back to my idea!
Hey Trout Towne Tabbies, what do you think of our business idea? Do you think it might fly? hehehehehe………..I couldn’t resist!!!
