Tank Goodness For Friday!!

Standard

I apologize, dear readers, for not being here the last two weeks. Back surgery was on 2/11 and much more invasive than I thought it was going to be. My younger son was here to help me, but he had to unplug my computer to plug his in so he could work from here. Didn’t have a chance to let you know what was happening before he unplugged me! Hope you enjoy the story.

Pudge was a very busy cat! He was an inside/outdoor cat and loved to explore. He slept almost sixteen hours a day, so he had to make good use of the six hours that he was awake. This didn’t always happen to be pleasant for the humans he lived with, but he WAS a cat, after all! Cats do what they want and humans have to get used to it. There were a variety of things that he could explore outside in his own yard as well as the neighboring yards. There were flowers, grass, and bugs to play with most of the time; when the weather was good, he also liked to go to the local coffee shop and hang out with the customers. In the winter he liked to go out and dig through the snow.

There were a lot more things to do inside which always seemed to get him into trouble. He wasn’t trying to be a bad cat; it just seemed to turn out that way. He loved laundry day because the clothes smelled so good when they came out of the dryer. Why did the humans get so mad when he would lay on them? So what if they were clean. Another warm place was on the computer keyboard. Humans didn’t like that either. Geez! His racing around the house at midnight also caused problems. When’s a cat suppose to get their exercise?

One week it seemed like everything went wrong. One of the neighbors yelled at him and chased him out of their yard for stalking their pet Chihuahua. The mailman didn’t appreciate a playful nip on the ankle. Pudge knocked over some spices on the kitchen counter when he was chasing a moth. He barfed up a hairball in a good pair of shoes. He missed the end table when he jumped from the couch and ended up hanging from the curtain. He decided that he better leave home for a while and let things calm down. So he headed for the coffee shop.

Are You Ready?

Standard

Sorry I missed last week, but things were pretty crazy around here. Thanksgiving is not too far away, so I thought I’d better get something done today and get ready for it. Of course, the cats wanted to help. Yikes!! They have their own thoughts about the menu, but I’m the boss. (Or so I think)

Okay, let’s start with the turkey. I know I can go to the store to get one, but they think you trap a turkey like you trap cats. I don’t think so!!

Cat Traps

We need stuffing for the turkey, but that’s not what salad is for, silly cat.

I Want It

We’ll need potatoes and some kind of vegetable to go with the salad, but I don’t think I’m going to get any help there. (He won’t either)

Cat on Back

What should we have for dessert? Anything with chocolate is fine with me! And no, you can’t have any chocolate.

You Don't Say

Most everybody in our family drinks coffee with their meal.

Coffee Consumption

Sometimes people bring a special dish that others like, so the dog thinks he needs to do this too!

Can  We Keep It

All in all, it will be a wonderful day because of being with family. After all, when everything is said and done, that’s what’s important!

Gives Us a Break!!

Standard

Saw a picture on Facebook the other day which gave me an idea for this week’s blog. Cats will sleep between 15 and 16 hours during a 24-hour period. But while they are awake, Katie bar the door!!! They make up for lost time with the things they can get into, mess up, or tear up. Since I have two cats, what one doesn’t think of, the other one will! (Reminds me of when my two sons were growing up.) Let’s see what they can get done in a short amount of time.

No Has Time

Two hour period in the morning:

Wake Up, Hooman

Cereal Killer

So That's Coffee

Not Your Fault

Now What

It’s probably time for a nap. Let’s look at two hours in the afternoon.

Am I Doing It Right

Awkward Moment

Poor Ralph

I Is Nascar Racer

Had to Barf

I Woke Up Early

Definitely time for another nap! Then it’s time for evening activities.

Completely Mad

Get Mikey

I Got the Fly

That Answers That

I Don't Want You to Miss Seeing How Cute I Am

Don't Brush Your Teeth

Of course, they’re always busy when you’re trying to sleep!

No One Was Using It

Not On the Table

Superglue Dog

Tarzan

Uz Can't Sleep

Well, kitty cats, I think that it’s time for you to get some sleep so I can too. Goodness gracious, it’s been a busy time! What are some of the things that your cat gets into trouble for? I’m sure there’s a lot of stories you could tell. Please share.
