Mother, May I?

Standard

It is now the month of May. Saw a wish the other day on Facebook for a happy May Day which reminded me of a game we used to play as kids called Mother, May I? That gave me the idea for this week’s blog. Hope you enjoy.

Mother, may I go play with my bird friends?

Mother, may I talk to my friend, Tommy?

Mother, may I have some tuna?

Mother, may I tell the teacher how much I like her?

Mother, may  I be Supercat?

Mother, may I help you make the bed?

Mother, may I sit down?

Mother, may I find a place to cool down?

Mother, may I sharpen my claws?

My, these cats are just full of questions. Maybe the most important one is Mother, may I count on you to protect me?

That’s enough questions for today. See you next week.

Spring Has Sprung!

Standard

I’m sure that we have a few more snowstorms coming in this part of the country, but it’s spring according to the calendar. Let’s see how our furry friends like spring.

Since we lost an hour a few weeks back, it takes a while to get moving.

On top of that, cats may have trouble getting their humans up!

However, once our friends are up, there are things to do.

Once the necessities are out of the way, it’s time to eat.

and relax.

Then it’s time to play hide and seek.

Play with friends.

Catch a mouse.

Exercise

Have a treat.

After all that, it’s time to rest again.
Before evening, there might be time to pretend to be a Superhero

or to just simply watch people go by.

 Some cats “spring” forward better than others. Don’t think this one is handling it too well!

Are you happy that spring is here?

A Cat’s View of Fall

Standard

Eyesight is getting better. Going to reblog a favorite from my friend, Colin. Enjoy, and please check out his other blogs also. Mageowl’s Blog

Cats have a different way of looking at the fall season than we humans do. Here’s a few examples of how a cat might view the changing seasons:

Summer’s over… the sun is dying… we’re all going to freeze to death! Oh! A leaf is falling, it’s a toy!

There’s not enough sun… we’re all going to freeze! We’re… we’re… is that a mouse I hear? It is! Let’s play!

Leaves falling from trees? Changing colors, drying up… Mouse time!

White powder falling from the sky? No sun? We’re all going to freeze! Where’s the blankets?

Snow! Snow? Nap time, wake me in the spring.

It’s fall! It’s getting colder! Time to run around and play until we all drop exhausted!

Summer’s over? It’s starting to get cooler… that mean blanket time! Where’s my soft blanket?

As you can see, cats have many different ideas on what the changing season means, some love it, others hate it.

How does your cat handle the changing seasons? How do you cheer them up? I’d enjoy reading your thoughts.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks, Colin, for helping me out!
