Guess What!

For no reason in particular, except that she must love us a lot, mom came home with this the other day. It's a very fun rocky-tinkle ball-roller ball-gunnysack-scratchy bottomed play toy. Thanks Mom, you are the greatest!

Ah...Mom help me! I got my paw stuck!

Rockin' Tommy.

Thundering Herd of Elephants

We have had five days of Mom and it has been a wonderful time! We didn't do any projects and just had fun. Mom did her favorite thing reading. She read and read and read. Tommy and I snuggled and we all decided that it seemed right just to take a break from blogging for a few days.

When we decided to turn the computer on and see what our blogging friends were up to we were very saddened to hear that Bonnie Underfoot had died. Then, we went to Victor Tabbycat and Bonnie Underfoot's blog and read what her mom had written about the weather and hearing the thunder and that she figured that it must be Bonnie playing "Thundering Herd of Elephants" with the other kitties at the Rainbow Bridge, it made us feel happy. Tommy and I even played a game of it last night at 2:00AM in honor of Bonnie. You go girl!

We will miss you Bonnie. We are sending *hugs* to Victor and his beans.

Locked Out on the Balcony!

This is Tommy and I got locked out on the balcony! Mom had gone to get a glass of lemonade from the fridge and walked back to the balcony calling us to come in. Shilgiah came and Mom just briefly glanced out, didn't see me and thought I must have already come inside. She has to be blind as a bat! So, then she closed the door and I heard her say "Do you want treats"? Treats! She was going to give Shilgiah treats and I was stuck on the patio! Shilgiah walked toward the kitchen and then she turned around and went to the glass doors of the balcony and cried for me! I owe you big time, sis! Mom, came back into the study and saw Shilgiah making all kinds of racket and me sitting there out on the balcony looking in at Shilgiah. Mom was so upset that she didn't even bother to take a picture and she gave me extra treats for leaving me there!!

I was just taking a little nap when Mom locked me out! How could she!!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there and to our mom who adopted us and takes such good care of us! Because I love my mom so much, I got her a bunch of roses that are yellow and orange. I thought they would look very nice on the table.

I promise not to nibble on the petals.

Then Tommy gave mom a silver stick with a rectangular flat thing on the bottom. It is called a Carpet Sweeper and it is a "green machine" even though it looks silver. The big plus is that Tommy absolutely hates the vvvrooom noisy machine that mom uses to clean the carpets so he thought this was the perfect solution. Mom began by using it on our little carpet on the balcony.

It works great and it's very quiet!

Mancat Monday

Hi! Tommy here. It was a pretty busy weekend of chasing my sister, monitoring the bird activity from the balcony and occasionally getting a bit of shut eye. I don't know why my mom thought it was so funny, but at one point I was grooming my handsome furs and sort of fell asleep in the middle. It was just a brief cat nap but when I opened my eyes mom had the flashy thing and was laughing at me.

How embarrassing to fall asleep mid-groom!
