World Cat Day


World Cat Day - that's today, Caterday, August 8th!

Mike
Oh, and the sun is out and the rain has stopped.  I seem to have an added touch of orange color on my furs.

On the other paw, it could be because of the suncatcher in the window above me.

Cookie
Today is a special day to celebrate all cats!
I am putting my best foot forward.

Mindy
I want to wish all cats, near and far - all the best on World Cat Day!


Moe
I too, wish to celebrate World Cat Day - and most celebrations include food!  I am counting on a celebratory feast!



Let's celebrate!

Mancat Monday

 
Moe says:   Miss Callie is on our bar-b-que!
 
 
It is my job to discourage this behavior. 
 
I did my best giving the - stink eye! 
Just to be sure, I added my best yowl.
 
It worked!
 
She has gone home, and is not bothering our hummingbirds that come to our feeder.
 
Mindy:
 
 
Good job, Moe!  Yes, she has left our deck and has gone.
 
Another good thing, I think the rain has stopped - for now.
 
Happy Monday to everyone!

Gumboot Sunday

Gumboots, seriously?
  


 Moe: I am checking into this ..... 
 Yes, needed because it is seriously raining - I just checked out our deck.


 Mindy: I'll take a look out of the window


 Mindy says:  I confirm there is rain. 



 Mike:  I think I overheard our human beans talking about 'will be rain today'. 

  This won't ruin my day, because I'm an indoor mancat.  I think will hang out in the kitchen in case the refridgerator door gets opened.  I am an expert at diving in before it closes.


Mindy:
 I overheard our dadbean say that our lawn and gardens really need a good soak of rain.  This should make him happy.  Me, not so much....at least I don't have to go out into it.  Glad I am an indoor cat.



Mike:  Me too!
  I will stay here at the top of the stairs to keep track of the traffic going into the food preparation area, it is almost lunchtime.



Moe:  Great idea Mike!
 Please keep me informed of ANY activity in that area.



Cookie:  Moe your love of food is over rated!
 I believe that quality snoozing is what is important.....I can say that because I have this room all to myself and lots of dry food available.....ZZZZZZZZ



 While we all watch the downpour and watch the grass, and flowers grow.....
....... enjoy the rest of the weekend!

My Saturday Bath


Cookie reporting in today.

My humans decided I needed the 'spa' treatment, which means putting an inch or two of water in the bathtub and  - here is the bad part - I got put into it.  This happened because apparently I don't do a good enough job of cleaning my toes.


Voila - well I must admit, they are much cleaner!  I would have been happy stopping right there, but oh no, I got my nails trimmed as well.

I was good, no crying or nipping.  However, there was one more insult. I needed my eyedrops today.   I am blind but my eyes sometimes get irritated, so the eye medicine helps.

You know, my humans do treat me well so they deserve some love.

I hope everyone has an easy, carefree Caturday and lots of love!

Monday and It is W-A-R-M!


Where we live, it may be considered HOT.


Mike and Moe

This is a comfy place to hang out.   On the other side of this railing are the stairs to the floor below.  From here the pair of us are not likely to miss anything - feline or human - coming either up or down the steps.  After all it is 'mancat' Monday and we mancats are making sure things are as they should be around here and doing so while observing from the comfort of our futon.  The very best observation spot.  Oh, we should also mention we are in a good place to hear any noises down the stairs in the kitchen.


Cookie

Should I leave some of these for later.....or dive right in and eat them all!
What do you think?  Save some or not?  Decisions, decisions.


Mindy

It is warm, so I will curl up here - my humans have the fan in front of the open window in this room.  Blowing the warm air out.....or is it bringing cooler air in?  It will give this some thought, but first I will take a nap.

Before I forget, would you like to see the red moon that was just rising over our big bay on July 2nd?


such an unusual color!!

and here is the wharf at night, which is not too far from where we live!


Yes, there were people fishing on the wharf even at that hour!!

International Box Day 2015

 
 
We love boxes!
 
 
Moe
....even when the box is a little small.
 
 
Mike
just my size
 
 
Cookie
Ah, this one is purrfect!
 
 
Mindy
I don't really like boxes, can't you tell?
 
 
 
 A great International Box Day to our visitors!!

Monday As Usual


What was unusual you may wonder?

Our humans were away this past weekend on a mini vacation.

Mindy
Moe and me - Mindy - looked after things here at home on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Our neighbour next door came in to give us our meals.  Other than that, Moe and I had the place to ourselves!


Moe
Yes, Mindy, we had our choice of napping spots!  Great time we had on our own, but not too long, just right.


Cookie
Mike and I went to our vet's because they run a boarding area for cats and dogs and our cat sitter was not comfortable with giving our medications.   First, the two of us needed to be up to date on our vaccinations as it has been a year already since the last ones.


Mike
Our vet decided it was time to do a health checkup as well.  Cookie and I are not fussy about being weighed and poked with the stabby needle.  We were in residence for two whole nights and were sure glad to get back home!


Home is best!!

Tabby Tuesday - Rain


Yes, rain today, but we can use lots of rain for our garden.

We can watch the raindrops through our windows, of course

OR

 watch these
Four pheasants today.


Mike
I like watching our bird "TV" but I also like this office chair, cause I need to help with posting on our blog.


Mindy
Beauty sleep is important, so I make sure I get lots!


Cookie
Ha, ha, I have the best photo today - the better to see my handsome face.  I get breakfast in bed too!


Moe
The door to the spare bedroom is open, so that means I must make sure this bed is comfortable for any guests that might stay over.

Sunday our humans got photos at sunset by the ocean, here are a couple of photos they took
lots of people were  there also taking pictures

Here's another

Have a good week everyone!

Happy Caturday - Good News!


The 'good news' is that our fur cousin,Georgia, is going to be just fine!

Her lab results are back and everything is normal, yay!


However, she still needs fluids and her vet is going to monitor her for another day or two.  Her human 'mom' and three kitty house mates are extremely happy!

We have more good news at our house, the snow is all but gone!


......and, we have some lovely daffodils to cheer us up.


It is May after all!


Mindy
I am waiting for my humans to give me a tummy rub.


Cookie
Do I hear the sounds of our pheasant looking for his breakfast?



It comes to our feeder every day.

Moe
Where are you Mike?

Mike
 Um, not far away


We should make a plan
Got any ideas how we can break into that container where our food is stored?
I broke in before, so I know it can be done.

Moe:  Last time I succeeded, it was because I pushed the container off the shelf, and the cover flew off.  Our food was all over the floor!  Success!

However our dadbean put a bungie cord around it, so now it is firmly attached to the shelf. 

Mike:  Perhaps some of our visitors know a good way to get around this obstacle and finally get a snack - just a little snack.

Have a great weekend everyone!
