What to Do On A Icy Day

We know what to do – pile up on mommy’s bed. To make it even better she has the good soft cover on it!

Lisa really liked snuggling up in the covers.

My brother’s, Mikey (gray) and Tigger (ginger) enjoyed a sleepy day on the bed, too.

As for me, Amber, I had my very own pillow and kept an eye on the rest of the gang.

Snakes, Mice and Elections–Oh My!

By Amber

Boy are we glad this Election Day thingy is over. We were getting tired and fed up with commercials that made Mommy and Daddy say the bad words and yell at the t.v.  Last night they sat up late and watched the t.v.peoples tell who was winning and losing and all that stuff. We tried to nap through it. Fat chance.

It’s over now for awhile. Mommy says 2 years for one election and 4 for the big one like last nights. I/we hope that is a long time.

Me, Amber, begging sweetly for cat-puter time.

There’s been bunches of things going on around the cottage while our human parents were wasting time on the election thingy.

For instance, we were invaded by outside critters and Spicy and Sugar had to catch and kill them. Three mice and a tiny little snake managed to get into our basement. Sugar killed the snake and brought it to Daddy. Spicy killed the mice (after having a good play-time with them first). Spicy gave the mice to Daddy for a treat. He tossed them outside just like he did the snake. Human’s!

Sugar, tired from snake hunting.

Miss Lisa got a feline UTI and was a very sick kitty. It took two weeks of 2 kinds of antibiotics to make her feel better. She is a sweet old lady-cat, and tiny, she only weighed 4 1/2 pounds when she went to see Dr. Kevin.

Miss Lisa with her assortment of food; she’s picky.

We kitties have been busy and have got lots to say…. if Mommy will stay off OUR cat-puter.

The Kitchen is Done!

by Amber

We were sad that Mommy was so upset by the kitchen floor be squishy. It had little humps in it and smelled funny, too. We noticed the smell especially because, well, we are closer to the floor.

For 9 whole days we had our day interrupted because Mommy’s son, Chris, came up here with a friend of his and beat and banged and tore stuff out and made all kinds of noise with hammers and saws. It was terrible. We stayed hid as best we could from the minute Chris drove down the driveway until he left at night.

Then we came out and checked out what had been accomplished. Most of the time it was still a mess.

Our entire daily routine was blown to kitty hell! We were not happy felines. Hiss!!!

At long last it was over and we could explore the finished product of our human brother’s hard work. It is cat-tabulous!

Tigger was glad Mommy put a chair so he could check out the counter.

Can I reach the ceiling fan from here?

Maggie Mae and Spicy also had to give their approval.

Me, Amber, checking it out as well. (I don’t get on the counters…. I have manners)

The table meets with Spicy’s approval. It also makes a good spot to watch birdies on the deck when Mommy feeds them crumbs.
