Happy Easter From the Cats!

Standard

It’s time for Easter even though it seems like it was just a few months ago that the snow was falling and the wind was howling. However, in Wyoming, that can happen at any time during the year. 🙂 At any rate, the cats and I wish all of you a very happy Easter and the blessings of the season.

Everybody needs a new Easter hat!

Or two or three.

You also need the Easter Bunny. Of course, there’s real bunnies and then the make-believe bunnies.

It wouldn’t be Easter without the eggs, now would it?

Oh, I wasn’t thinking about that kind of egg. When Easter is over, the Easter Bunny will be told….

Happy Easter, everyone!!

April Fool!

Standard

Wow! It’s already the first of April. Don’t know where the time went, but it flew by. Since it’s the first of April, you know what that means. Wonder if any of our friends had April Fool tricks played on them?

Breakfast is waiting for you in the kitchen, Simon.

If you let me dress you up, you can play with the hamsters.

You can sit in the extra chair for as long as you want.

Be careful of the new lamp!

Rover, the cat told me she wants to play with you.

 Hey, Mason! Guess who is with me.

It’s a beautiful day outside. Go and play.

This family needs a dog!

Humans are in charge, not cats.

Do you play any April Fool jokes on your friends? If so, we’d love to hear about them.

Did You Get a New Kitten for Christmas?

Standard

A new, furry, lovable kitten is always fun, but sometimes that fun wears off when the holidays are over. I’ve always believed that if you’re going to be a pet owner, you need to be a responsible pet owner. It breaks my heart to see animals mistreated because their owners are tired of them. All of us who are animal lovers know how precious these little lives are and that they deserve good care like the rest of our family.

Kind to an Animal

If the animal was a gift that you don’t want anymore, then please find it a home where it can be happy or put it in a no-kill shelter. The shelters are full of pets looking for a forever home. Some people prefer to adopt an older animal rather than getting a young one. An older cat is not as mischievous as a kitten can be nor are they as active.

Adopt a Senior Pet

Of course, who could turn this down?

Adoption

If you’re up for some adventure, you could always adopt a feral cat. It took my Sammy a long time to learn to trust humans, but the patience was worth it. He is the most lovable lap cat now and just gives me so much joy.

Feral Cats

Feral Cats Show Love

No matter which method that new cat arrived, they will return your love many times over.

Happiness Is

Pure Love

First Thing

Through all of this, however, you have to remember one basic fact. No one owns a cat!

No One Owns a Cat

Owned By a Cat

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (According to Cats)

Standard

‘Twas the night before Christmas

and all through the house

all the creatures were stirring.

Even the mouse!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

in hopes that St. Claws soon would be there.

Mom in her kerchief and I in my cap

had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

but a miniature sleigh

and one old horse.

All the reindeer were sick

so Santa had to rely

on one old horse

that just couldn’t fly.

When Santa was let in

through the front door,

he immediately scared

the cats on the floor.

The cats were excited

to see what they’d get

as Santa delivered the gifts

to each pet.

Having finished his work,

Santa went to the door.

He climbed in his sleigh

and started to snore.

As the horse moved on

and was soon out of sight,

Santa was dreaming about the catnip

he would have later tonight.

Hope you enjoyed this. Want to wish each one of my readers a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017! God bless each and every one of you.

Getting Ready For the Big Day

Standard

Last week my computer wouldn’t even turn on, so I missed posting. Finally able to get it fixed! Want to share with you how the cats help me get ready for Christmas.

First of all, we have to have a Christmas tree,

ill-help-decorate

so they have something to play with!

If they play with the garland, you may get this.

Okay, finally have the tree ready. We have a new angel at the top.

what-do-you-mean-get-down

Of course, with Christmas, there’s always cookies.

are-those-for-us

Have to visit Santa to let him know what the boys want.

go-see-santa-they-said

Something they DON’T want is to be dressed up.

every-year-its-the-same-thing

fine-have-your-fun

They’d rather sing instead.

deck-the-halls

All of this is very exhausting work!

However, we all wish you the blessings of the season.

It Was a Very Good Night!

Standard

Enjoy the story.

Tiger was the only cat in the family. There were also two dogs, and they got along with each other very well. Tiger had seen what happened with the dogs around the time of Halloween and he would hide. He didn’t want humans putting all kind of costumes on him. Yuck! The dogs looked so silly, but they’d just wag their tails and act like they were all happy about it. That wasn’t for Tiger. No, sir, cats didn’t do that!

It was time for Halloween again. “Oh, no”, thought Tiger. “Time for me to find a place to hide!” However, things were going to be different this year. The children had decided that the pets should go with them to carry their treat buckets. No costumes for the animals this year. Now, this sounded pretty good to Tiger! He liked being outside and decided he wouldn’t hide. Being a cat, he was curious about what would happen,.

When it was time to go outside to trick or treat, Tiger was so excited that he could hardly stand it. He bounced from floor to couch, from chair to floor, etc. like he had springs in his feet. The children gathered him up along with the dogs and off they went. It was so much fun! Other children would pet him and love on him until he purring so loud he sounded like a freight train. “Yes!”, thought Tiger. “I want to do this every year.” He was so tired when they came home that he fell asleep in the chair. It had been a very good night indeed!

Happy Father’s Day, Mr. Cat!!

Standard

Sunday is Father’s Day. We humans like to get gifts for our fathers. Made me wonder what I would give to my father if he had been a cat. Interesting concept. Here’s what I came up with for your cat(s).

First of all, they would probably want a party. (When you weren’t home)

Get This Party Started

Once you are home, presents would be expected. How about a sweater?

Black Sweater Cat

That’s probably too hot for summer. Maybe a new hat.

My Dancing Hat

Let’s see what else they would like. Perhaps a nice trip somewhere.

Dad's On TV

Catnip Kicked In

If a long trip is not convenient, try a shorter one.

I'm Going to the Library

If your cat is computer literate, perhaps they would like to post on Facebook.

I Love This Post

Human dads would like chocolates, but that’s not good for cats.

I Don't Like Chocolates

However, they might like flowers.

Smells So Good!

One thing I KNOW they would like is a new box to play in.

The Reflexes of a Cat

Something else they would appreciate is a nice treat.

Thank You

I Want Tacos

However, if it’s not what they want, you may see this!

No Tuna No Snuggles

They might enjoy music while they are eating.

I No U Is In There

When the day is done, your cat probably will be tired from all the excitement. Time to tell them good night.

I'm Going to Take a Nap Now

What kind of things would you get your cat for Father’s Day? Let’s see how many funny suggestions I get.
