Happy Valentine’s Day

We wanted to make sure that we remembered to say Happy Valentine’s Day to Mom, so we chose one of our pictures where we are actually cuddling.  We wanted to let Mom know how much we love her and how much we appreciate the fact that she rescued us and gave us such a good home.

We realize there are fur people and humans out there that don’t have homes and don’t think they have someone to love them.  That’s sad.

We want everyone to feel loved ‘cuz everyone is special, whether you have fur, fins, feathers or skin.

So……..we decorated this picture just for you, Mom.  We also wanted to share our love with our readers, ‘cuz they mean lots to us.  We really appreciate how they join us in our adventures and send us notes and things.  We consider ourselves to be very lucky.

Please tell your fur people and your human friends and family how much they mean to you and do it every day….not just today.


Happy Valentine’s Day, Everyone!!!

Fluffy and Valentine’s Day

From the Mom:  Hemingway and Shakespeare introduced their friend, Fluffy, in their Christmas letter.  Some of you are meeting Fluffy for the first time.  He and the boys talk about all sorts of things and try to figure out humans.  This is their message for Valentine’s Day:

Fluffy rolled and bounced around the house as the two cats carried him from room to room.  They were all enjoying the sunshine of the day.  The relaxing light streaming in through the windows made delightful sun puddles on the floor.  Sometimes the cats would let Fluffy lay in the sun with them.  They all knew it was still cold outside so they were enjoying being in the warm house with all the food, treats and toys.  Fluffy loved being part of this family.

The cats started talking about Valentine’s Day.  Fluffy didn’t know what that was.  He had enough trouble just figuring out what day of the week it was.

Hemingway, the big black and white cat, tried to explain Valentine’s Day to Fluffy.  After all, Hemingway was six years old now.  That’s a paw and a claw in cat terms.  Fluffy didn’t have paws and he didn’t have claws so he didn’t care.  However, both of the cats seemed to take great pleasure in knowing how old they were.

“Fluffy, Valentine’s Day is kind of an important holiday to humans,” Hemingway explained.  “Mom has told us that humans send cards, flowers, candies and other gifts on that day.  It’s a time when they show others how much they are loved.”

“Why don’t humans show love every day?  Why do they have to have a special day?”, Fluffy asked.

Shakespeare, the fluffy orange kitty with the super long tail, spoke up.  “Hey Fluffy, that’s a really great question!  We never thought about it ‘cuz we show Mom every day how much we love her.”

Hemingway chimed in, “Yes, Fluffy, you’ve hit on something really interesting.”

Mom….Fluffy and I went outside to play and now we want to come in, please.

Shakespeare and Fluffy

Fluffy, we love you and we love Mom.  Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Dear Readers, we all want to wish you a very special day.

Yes, we hope all of your food is heart-shaped!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

E-mail The Two of Them November 2010Hemingway, why are we wishing everyone a happy Valentine’s day?

Because Mom told us we should do that.

We don’t always do what Mom says so why are we doing it now?

Well, I think it’s ‘cuz it will make Mom happy.  There’s something about this Valentine’s day stuff that makes humans a little crazy.

What do you mean?

I’ve heard that they go out and buy cards, flowers, candy and other stuff for the person(s) they love.  For instance, Mom sent a card to her sister and some friends and remember how we sent some cards, too?

Oh, that’s right.  You woke me up from my nap to have me sign those cards.  I still don’t understand why we’re doing what Mom wants now though. 

It’s all about LOVE!  Mom loved us enough to rescue us and adopt us and give us a good home.  We love her enough to try to be good now and then.  I show Mom I love her by crawling up in her lap and falling asleep.

Mom knows I love her when I walk by her so she can pet my long fluffy tail.  I just don’t like that lap stuff.  I’m too aloof.

You’re something alright.  By the way, where on earth did you hear that word?

I think it was on the box with the moving pictures.  I have another question.  Why do humans have to have a special day to say they love each  other?  Shouldn’t they do it all the time?  I know I would love it if someone gave me catnip and treats all the time and not just on one special day.

  I guess it’s a human thing.  We better finish this before Mom turns off the computer.  We just wanted to say a big Happy Valentine’s Day to all our friends out there in web world.  We love reading about your adventures and we hope you love reading about ours.  We also hope that the humans and fur people in your life show you love every day!

You’re getting way too serious, Hemingway.  Does anyone out there know why Mom won’t let us have chocolate on Valentine’s Day but it’s okay for her to have it?  If it’s bad for us, shouldn’t it be bad for her too?  Is this another one of those human rule things that we don’t understand?

Shakespeare, quit being a pest.

Mom……..Hemingway’s calling me names!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

While Mom was at work we got her camera and took pictures of each other so we could post them on our blog.

Shakespeare tried to eat the camera.  He thought it was food…………as usual.

Did not!

Anyway, we just wanted to tell Mom how much we love her so we figured this would be a good way.

We also wanted to let her know what she should give us for Valentine’s Day……but mostly we wanted to let her know we love her.

I'm not sure if Shakespeare got my best side.
I’m not sure if Shakespeare got my best side.

We want to wish all our friends and relatives a Very Happy Valentine’s Day.  We hope you spread the love all over the world.

I think Hemingway didn't include my tail in this picture on purpose!

When you finish celebrating Valentine’s Day then you can go shopping for my birthday present ‘cuz my third birthday is in March.  (Hemingway was finished with the computer so he didn’t see me add this.  Purrrrrrr.)
