Sorry that we have not been blogging recently! Mom has been too busy to help us blog much lately. She has some really lame excuses, too: cleaning the house for visitors, having visitors, getting sick. Really lame excuses if you ask me.
Anyway, there have been lots of fun things going on around here lately! Padre and Meerkat want to tell some of the stories too, so we agreed to each tell some of the things that have been going on here.
First, Mom got real busy rearranging things in the house. She called it “tidying up”. Well, it amounted to lots of moving things around, which of course, we had to sniff and snoopervise. It was kind of entertaining to watch her scurry around and go up and down the stairs a lot.
Mom put newspapers into paper bags, which I climbed inside of to sniff, and to hang out in. Mom kept adding more newspapers to the bags until I could not fit inside anymore. And then Daddy carried the paper bags to the end of the driveway. Daddy refers to the end of the driveway as “the curb”. I have never personally gotten to sniff the curb, but it sounds interesting. Then some
big-ass very large truck drove by and took the paper bags away.
Now, all was well and good with the tidying up, until Mom and Daddy took out the gigantic Rug-Sucking Monster, and they took turns dragging it all over the house! I was beginning to doubt my belief that this is a wonderful home, but I remembered that other kitties in the blogosphere also mentioned that their humans also utilize such a monster from time to time.
All this tidying up was apparently due to an impending “visit” from Aunt Patty and her boyfriend Chris. Aunt Patty and Chris came to visit to help Mom celebrate becoming very old. Mom said that she is now older than Jack Benny. I dunno what she’s talking about.
Aunt Patty and Chris brought us a gift to celebrate Mom becoming very old. It is called a mobile. Aunt Patty said that the three kitties represent The Three Furry Bambinos! Here is a photo of the mobile:
Daddy hung it from the ceiling fan thingy in the kitty feeding room. I like to circle it and study it and think of ways to get it down.
Here is a picture of Aunt Patty holding me!
Aren’t we cute together?
Aunt Patty saw some of the
juicy friendly looking squirrels dining outside the back door (Mom and Dad feed the squirrels every morning). Aunt Patty thought that the squirrels were rather, well, uh, rotund. She said the squirrels looked as big as beavers! She called the squirrels the “beaver squirrels”. Here is a photo of one of the squirrels enjoying his or her breakfast:
Padre, Meerkat, and I enjoyed the visit from Aunt Patty and Chris very much!
