There's A Frog In Our Blog!!



Yup, we have a frog in our bloggie, cause said froggy is in meowmy's planties, and even called in a buddy, OMC!


OK, seriously, there is a little tree froggy that frequents our patio potted plants. And at night he/she calls in for reinforcements to stick on our windows to hunt fur bugs. Hopefurly lots of pesky mosquitoes.
One day when meowmy was trying to pour water into her pots with the watering can she thought it was plugged up with leaves...but...it was our froggy in the spouty! Eventually he popped out! MOL!
He was even in the rain gauge once, too.
A long time ago there was one of those little emerald green froggies that was on meowmy;s van and it traveled a 50 mile round trip, Wow!


There are a myriad of bugs of all kinds in our yard, and a lot of them like to chew on our plants...sheesh, our yard is so large, can't they eat somewhere else?









Speaking of plants, meowmy picked us some fresh catnip...off we go to have a nice fresh, green snack, no frogs allowed!
'Stoned on fresh nip!'

A Spawsial Day ~ Fur Us & Fur Our Pawrents!


Our Mousebreath Badge


We got to have an interview with Mousebreath ; What an honor! We think we are furmouse now, MOL! Mousebreath is a neat ‘magazine’, hosted by Jan’s Funny Farm, and it was the Felines ovfur there who interviewed us.
The kitties who interviewed us also made us a nice memento picture:


They heard about us from those furry furmouse kitties, known to most as ‘The Tabbies Of Trout Towne’. Thanks Tabbies fur the refurral!
The Tabbies have a blog too, in case you didn’t know and wish to visit there:
The Tabbies of Trout Towne

They are a lot of fun, too.

We gotta scram now, cause we see the flashybox thing coming out, It is our pawrents 27th Wedding  Anniversary, and it seems they want to remember the day with pictures...hey we didn't attend their wedding, why do we need to have anniversary pics made? Speaking of which, the picture in the center of that memento was one taken when our peeps catabrated 25 years. We think they should just recycle that one and spare us the flashybox issues...

This is where Travis has his blog, along with his furmily members:
Travis

(That’s why the rules are in Travis speak…)

Thanks, Travis! I shall try and do a good mewing job here…MOL!

Seven random facts? Hmmm, I didn’t think I was random, but here goes…

ONE)  I was gotten and bought by meowmy…but I fur sure am a pawppy’s boy! Pawppy gives the best belly rubs!

TWO) I hate those heartgard chews that all kitties are supposed to relish, MOL! Meowmy has to break them in pieces and put them in my mouth and make sure I swallow them…sigh…I hate all but my kitty noms!

THREE) I let Minko bully me out of the best sun puddles and nesting spots…but not without a hiss or growl. Meowmy says I am a pushover, but I say I am a pacifist!

FOUR) We have an AGO organ here, and when unfur the elder was practicing on it, I would make the pedals sound by walking on them. I still do it but all that happens now is a clunking sound, MOL!

FIVE)  I like the laser light toy, feathers on a wand, but my fave is a long thick twine on a stick…I will chase that all over! (Meowmy has to hide it when I am not playing with it...Minko & I will chew it up.)

SIX) Catnip is OK, but meowmy has seen kitties that are far more nuts with it than I. I just sniff it and get all stoned…

SEVEN) I am Minko’s protector! I beat up dog-guy, and come running at a moments notice if I hear Minko mewing that dog-guy has gotten too frisky. Then my smacky paw goes like a blur!


Nominate 15 others?? Um…OK, I am a Meezer with a mind of my own, which means I am gonna break rules to suit myself…mostly cause I don’t know nearly that many kitties in blogdom…and most that I do are already nominated…so…YOU are nominated IF YOU are reading this and have not been nominated by any others! MOL! Go fur it!

YES!!!

Minko is now eating regular food all by himself now.
One day I, Meowmy was sitting at the confuser, and I heard a distinct crunching sound. Investigating, there was Minko chowing down from the bowl he always ate from in the past. Hooray!

He's up to his usual games of mouse singing, jumping on the table while we are eating, and so on Also he has tried to get through the door to the bedrooms.which is an old game of his..je tries to be sneaky and is furry fast like a greased lightening! MOL! If he does get in, then he tries to get into an inaccessible spot, to lengthen the time it takes to 'evict' him. Silly Naughty Minko!Its good to have him back!
Minko - Thinking up more mischief...
And just now pawppy told me that when he came home from work, there was a little booklet on the floor, and the attached string loop that held it to its original spot on a bottle was in several pieces. Um...only Minko he is such a silly rascal! And a naughty counter surfer!

We had a scary thing happen here last night, our old mill, a 159 year old structure, and rather a landmark was burned down to the ground. OMC:(

Bedford Mill Fire (Wednesday)

Updated link from  Thursday
Thursday's updated info


Meowmy took some pictures of it a few weeks ago. Who knew??


Bedford Mill as seen from the Bedford Park, on Waubascon Creek

All that is left now is a big smokey hole...it was so hot pawppy says the road asphalt even melted! Wow. Arson. Why do peeps have to do things like that? Now its gone forever.

Canada Day

Pipo

Minko
It was Canada's Birthday on July First.
Canada was 'born' on July 1, 1867.
Meowmy grew up in Canada, and when she lived there it was called Dominion Day.

We had some bad storms here on the night of June 30 - July 1. Many trees came down and the lightening was phenomenal. But July one was pleasant and bright! We didn't have any of our trees come down, nor did we loose power like so many did around here. We are glad about that!

Our Canadian flag was flying in the breezes all day long. Meowmy had on a Canada shirt…and there were red strawberries for desert here. In White yoghurt, MOL!

We did not have to get dressed up! (Just 'necklaces'...) Meowmy was out to do errands…pawppy said when he went to put out the flag, he first had to rescue a red hen that was in our yard, blown over the fence in the storm??

Minko seems fine,except he isn't eating a whole lot.
Pipo, well he is eating for both of them.

Now we have to get ready for the next holiday, July Fourth!
