Memorial Day Mews

Dog-guy gets all the fun around here…

Well, it seems that way to us at any rate.

He can go outside at will through his doggy doors…

He can chase critters and bark at hot air balloons, and woof through the fence at the neighbors kid lets and pups…and he can run like the wind…

Lets see now…we get to sit in sun puddles, chase some bugs, drool ovfur the things we see in the yard outside and can’t do anything more than chatter and lash our tails.

We get to sample all and any of the warm laps…we can chase our tails, headbonk the dog-guy, we can jump on the dining room table…oops, not supposed to do that…we can make bread on the peeps, too bad they can’t gobble it up!

We have two rooms as dog free zones, with lets see…at least eleven soft places to choose from as well as two condos to hide in and innumerable hidey-holes to play peek-a-boo in…oh, and there are some fun boxes to sit/play in too, and loads of kitty toys in a basket, mostly catnip filled mousies and such-like. There are feather wands, crinkle balls and some old socks filled with fresh ‘nip.

So…why meowmy asks, do we try to go through the doggy doors, chew on usb and power supply cords. Hiss at the peeps when its time to have our teeth brushed…knock items to the ground such as pencils and earrings…among other nonsensical kitty amewsments. 

(Minko chewed through yet another cord…we need to get out the cayenne pepper).

And we do not have to ask to go outside to go potty if the doors are locked…nor do we need to go for walks, though that might be interesting we think…

Well, come to think of it, we seem to be rather pampered, MOL!

We have pawppy especially wound around our paws, MOL!

                                             Hey kitties!




                              It is Memorial Day tomorrow.

We are grateful that so many gave much and many more gave all so that our peeps and yours can be free here in this land we call home, be it by birth or adoptive such as meowmy does…

Young Marines placing flags on graves @ Fort Custer National Cemetery, 2014

 When our unfur-bros were younger like these boys, they did this too...dressed just like that as they were then part of our local Young Marines Group, an organization, not unlike scouts.
 
Its poignant and moving to see all those flags.


Have a happy and safe holiday, and remember that there is a serious reason we are having this day. Meowmy flew the flag  on our front porch today, and will do it again tomorrow, weather permitting. She was off today, but will have to work tomorrow. There are some residents there who are veterans and how proud they are of the work they did. Meowmy and all of us should thank all this who have and are serving whenever we can.

The Sweet Rewards Of Getting Busted

OMC!
Pipo would be wishing he was a naughty kitty...well, maybe...

My naughty chewing habits have earned me a DDP honor, MOL!

Pipo just has to sit there and wonder what he needs to do to be recognized fur being a goody four paws...poor brofur of mine...

Well, meowmy didn't have to be at her work, but she spent a lot of the day going on errands...doing chores, and other non-kitty stuff.
She went visiting a lot of other furry pages too, and now I have to get the leftover time...ahhh, that is the price I have to pay fur my chewing time, MOL!

Thanks so much fur the comments, prezzies, pictures, support and MOL's about this trouble I am in.

Tundra sent this nice picture to mark the event:

Pawppy says I keep eying the power supply to his Mac-book, its also an expensive dedicated one. He thinks he should get some peppered tape to cover the temptations...meowmy thinks we should just hide our cords better...duh...

I shall try to post my thank-mews really soon!

Off to spy out the land of 'cordster' here in my den...

~~~~~~~~~~
Pipo here:
All I get fur being a good kitty is the taking away of my sunpuddles and cold winds outside...and rain, rain, rain...hey, I am a kitty, not a duck!

There are lots of things to watch outside though...no bumble bees, though on account of all the cool weather and rain, but birdies and more birdies...(sorry tabbies)...they appear to have a nest in the eaves of our neighbors den! Hope their kitty doesn't find them...I have seen said kitty on their roof, OMC.

Happy Mother’s Day!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 5-11-2014

To all Moms and their children, be they furry or not.
~~~~

Wow!
It was over 80 degrees here today.

Seems like we went from wondering if we would ever see grass and blooms again…but now the grass has been mowed twice, the leaves are coming on all the trees, and it was really warm today.

Recently we showed you our Weeping Cherry tree in full blossom mode, from a few years ago. Well this spring turned to instant summer, that tree has only put forth a few blossoms. Must have had a lot of damage from the severe frost over the winter. Meowmy was looking forward to seeing it all pink and pretty, but not this year. At least it didn’t break from all the ice and snow it had to bear over the winter. And its hardy enough to still be alive, it had plenty of leaves coming.






Yesterday, pawppy bought several patio pots full of purrty flowers to grow on our little patio. They look dwarfed by the patio pots they were set into, but soon they will be big and bright, we hope!



Meowmy tried to overwinter some geraniums, so those are outside now, and time will tell how they do. There is some greeness in them, that;s a good sign.



Now we need to close our windows, cause the radar shows some storms coming our way!

Nighty-night and stay warm and dry and safe.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 5-11-2014

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers!
Be you a Momma, a Mommy, a Meowmy, or a Mom...or purrhaps a Moeder or a Madre. Maybe some of your Mothers are also Grandmas! Or Oma's or Bepe's...
We are honoring all of you today. Even if you're only having furkids...you're still their Mother! So there!

Anyways, now that I have mewed all about that..here is some more furry mews.

Minko got all busted today, and I was deemed innocent because I had an alibi, MOL! I was napping in a warm sun puddle right in front of the peeps...and Minko was not...Dog-guy was near the peeps too, so even though I like to smacky paw and hiss him, today its not him getting into the bad-books...

Minko chewed up Unfur-the-Elder's power supply, a dedicated spawsial one...it is $55 to replace it, OMC. Must have been him who chewed up that USB cord last week, right? Similar damage seen on this item as that one.

How on earth is he going to find the right kind of work to pay fur those kind of damages...

Glad it wasn't me!
I am a Goody Four-Paws!

MINKO's TURN:

FROM MT CATSTER ARCHIVES

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 5-11-2014

(I wasn't in posing mode anymore, MOL!)

--------------------------------
BUSTED - Red Toothed
--------------------------------

Unfur-the-Elder was here today, on account of that it is Mother’s Day.

Oh yes:

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers, be they of fur kids, real kids or both!

Unfur-the-Younger wasn’t here, but he didn’t forget to send a nice card.

Pipo & I purred and headbonked meowmy.

Of course Dog-Guy had to do his act of wagging and woofing.


As I was saying, Unfur-the-Elder was here. He always brings some electronics when he comes.

When evfurryone was sitting down to eat dinner, Pipo decided to take a nap on the condo in a sun puddle.
He entertained the crowd by chattering at bumble bees and other buggies out there. And he chased his tail.

I was not anywhere to be seen, but if course I have some neat hidey holes to snooze away the time.

Afterwards, Unfur-the-Elder came out of the icing room…and he was angry…and not a little upset.
He presented meowmy with a unique item, not normally seen, the charger to his spawsial confuser. Its a dedicated one and can’t be interchanged with others.
Um…it was chewed right thorough and there were multiple bite marks all over it.
As you may recall, last week Unfur-the-Elder had to get a new USB cord, because somefur had chewed it up. OMC!

Well, I Minko get the blame, caught red pawed, or rather red toothed as it were, because Pipo was a goody four paws and had been sleeping all through the mealtime…and dog-guy was under the table gnawing on his own chew stick…besides which he can’t get into the living room, there is a gate blocking the way.

Oh-oh!
I am in trouble now.
Unfur-the-Elder says that charger will cost him $55. How on earth can I, a wee innocent kitty with big blue eyes and nice long whiskers, earn $55 to pay it back?
All the while our unfurs had lived here, nobody much paid cords attention, except the skinny slinky ones from earbuds…now I am into the big stuff. Meowmy says I have tried to chew the power supply to her MAC, and pawppy says similar things…

I need to consult Travis The Cat, his peeps know about law and jurisdictions and stuff like that. I don’t wanna go to kitty gaol.
I gave my sweetest purrs to Unfur-the-Elder and some headbonks befur he left to go back to his own den….maybe that will get me off the hook?

And how did you spend your Mother’s Day my furry pals?? MOL!

Sunshine Award - We Got One! So Here 's Our Bloggie About It





Oh, MY Catness! That is what meowmy said when she saw your notice, Travis.
Thank Mew is what we purr!


 I got this Sunshine Award from my pal Travis. Thanks!!


The Sunshine Awards are given by bloggers to other bloggers that they admire.  Here's how it works...
1.  Thank the person who gave you the award.
2.  Name 10 things about yourself that others might not know.
3.  Pass the award on to ten other bloggers (show the Sunshine Award logo so they can use it too!)

OK, so we thanked the one who sent us this award…Travis that is...Thanks once more, MOL!

Ten Things about us…since we are two kitties, that means five things each…or a combo, right?? MOL! Hey! We can cheat a bit...

Pipo:
1.  I take care of Minko, he’s my younger fur-bro…well, only by a few days. I make sure dog-guy doesn’t get too frisky around my fur-bro…I have to hiss him and use my smacky paw a lot when he won’t stop. Sometimes I do give him what fur just because, MOL! I don’t know why, but meowmy says that is being catty and mean.


2.  Dog-guy has doggy doors and I like to sneak through them, so that I can warm my furs in that warm back porch on sunny days. The sun puddles are so much larger in there. Then meowmy hears the door swinging, but no doggy comes inside,MOL! He’s sleeping in his nest on the couch…what better time to sneak into the sunroom!?!

3.  I had to donate a pearly white to the vet joint, likely as a ransom fur the cleaning job they did last year. But I didn’t let them steal my fangs; sheesh I *need* those!

4.  I hiss/growl at meowmy when its time for her to brush my teeth. And I make it furry hard fur her to find me, somehow even though she hasn’t even gotten out the toothbrush, I *know* its time to hide, MOL!

5.  I sort of let Minko boss me around. I let him take the best spot in sun puddles or perches on the kitty condo, or soft spots in our many nests…he seems to want to always be exactly where I am. Meowmy says I am a sort of a wuss, but I say I am being a polite kitty…I reserve my spitfire mode for dog-guy.

6.  I bite and munch on plastic, the firmer and noisier it is the better. Like the shrink wrap on pop bottles…or treat holding bags. Even the bags holding our noms and the dog-guy’s noms…though they are not plastic. But I know there is yummy stuff inside. Once Minko & I opened a new kitty noms bag and had us some…but dog guy gobbled a whole lot of it…OMC! He was a stinky pup after that…

7.  I chase my tail a lot; I twitch it and then that makes me want to pounce on it, MOL! I work so hard at it that sometimes I am rolling like a ball, OMC!

8.  I hate that heartworm medicine I have to take once a month, so meowmy has to break it up into little pieces and ‘pill’ me with them…sigh...

Minko:

9.  I sing to my toys, walk them up the stairs, bat them down again and pick them up to do more kitty crooning to them before repeating the bash down, MOL!  My singing doesn’t sound like a meezer voice at all…more like a wee kitten; high pitched and squeaky…it always get the attention of meowmy who mostly giggles at me; sheesh. Doesn’t she know that peeps do things like that when they talk/sing to their unfurbabies?

10.  I like to knead and knead and knead. I could keep the cupboards full of bread in my den! No need to go to the bakery, MOL!
The best spot for kneading is the soft belly of pawppy when he is trying to take a nap. Or that of meowmy…or maybe when meowmy is typing, like now, I am on her lap, and I can watch, snoopervise the catetarial duties being purr-furmed! Sometimes I just knead in my soft nest. And make *loud* purrs along with the kneading.

11.  I like to try and get all cozy with dog-guy, but somehow we nevfur cuddle or sleep in the same spots. So mostly I just wash the dog-guy’s ears and face, sometimes he returns the favor. We have done this ritual fur many years, MOL! He sometimes begs me to do this, so I being a nice kitty do oblige him. But…sometimes he gets too silly and Pipo has to rescue me. OMC!

12.  I like to bite into cardboard, especially boxes. Lots of them have my toothy signatures on them. I like to think I am keeping my biting skills honed, nevfur know when I might need them! Or purrhaps its a kitty way of toothbrushing.

13.  I too, go out the doggy door, but then I go out the second one, too…so that I am put on the steps…I go down those and hooray…there is the grass! Great to munch on. Once I was out there, and all of a sudden I got spooked by ?? and ran back in like an exploding kitty, my tail all a-fluff and I went under the couch to hide from whatever it was. But I didn’t learn my lesson, and meowmy often finds me on the outside part of the doggy door. Good thing I get heartworm medicine, because there are hungry mosquitoes out there…that is how we ended up having to say RIP to Simba…he got heartworm from going outside with no protection:(

14.  I have opened up plastic tubs of catnip, stolen catnip toys that were meant to be given fur gifts, and bite through those little bags that nip often comes in. I sit and beg fur the nip if I know that meowmy is close by where she hides it from my teeth…now its kept in glass jars…sheesh, I can’t figure out how to open those, and my paws do not have thumbs…too bad I don’t have paws like them coonie dudes do.

15.  I love those heartworm chews and I try to steal Pipo’s, but meowmy is on to that and won’t let me do that…shucks, they taste good!

16.  I do not like salmon wet kitty food…I try to bury it, I even have scratched up the food placemat overtop of the dish…MOL!


WBS

17.  Once we spent a whole long night outside because we went outside and meowmy hadn’t noticed it. That was befur the doggy doors were installed and she would prop open the porch door so dog-guy could come and go as he wished. (We already had the fence at that time…)
So we spent the night huddled under a shrub, which is where meowmy found us early the next day when she was missing our mews…good thing it was dry and not cold.

18.  We are nip kooks, Minko is totally nutzo about it, he eats the stuff, and steals toys or even the containers with it. Pipo likes it too, but he just gets into a daze when he gets a good whiff of it; like he is stoned, MOL! Meowmy has to watch, because Minko will go and steal Pipo’s nip, and Pipo doesn’t try to guard it…silly Pipo!

19.  And we are naughty too sometimes…we chew cords. The usb cords to phones and gadgets are interesting and the  earbud cords are the funnest of all, OMC…we ruined a lot of them , the last being on May 3rd, when one the unfurs forgot to hide his cord, MOL!
Chewed through this USB cord on May 3, 2014

We aren't telling who did this...unfurbro was NOT pleased...

Not like he didn’t know we do it…hey, they are wiggly worms that need to be eradicated!
And mewomy has had to cover another one with an old sock, teehee!
Wow! Thats 19 things about the two of us!


Now how on earth are we going to nominate 10 other blogging furs?
Most other bloggers that we know have gotten this already, some more than once.
So…being meezers with a bit of a naughty bent we are going to break the rules. Yup, Breaking things and rules is fun, MOL!
We nominate *ALL* of our pals! We know you will read this and so consider your awesome - pawsome selves to be honored nominees of this selfsame sunshine award!
