It's Friday and it's my 11th Birthday!

This morning my Lap Lady let me open up
one of my birthday presents.
We went out to the porch because it's such a lovely morning
and I love my porch anyway!
My first present today is a wonderful cat pillow
with catnip inside of it.
I was so excited. I just kept rolling all around on it
and even under it
Willow was becoming curiouser and curiouser.
Finally she came over to check it out.
Now Willow understands...
It's CatNip!!! Right in my Pillow!!!
I love my birthday pillow...
And I get more presents later on today!

My birthday is tomorrow!

I wonder what Willow is getting me for my birthday???
Maybe some Temptations???
That would be a terrific Birthday present...
I don't know how she would be able to get them...
I guess that I'll wait until tomorrow!

Easy like Sunday Morning with Louie

Louie and I had such a great nap
out on the couch yesterday,
we decided to come back out to do it again!
Hey, Louie,
isn't this a great way to spend a lazy Sunday?
I think that I need to rotate.
Don't worry, Louie, you aren't in my way...
It's Sunday so it's time for the Carnival of the Cats!
This 179th edition is being hosted
at The Scratching Post by K T Cat

Everyone loves you Anastasia...

Anastasia, please find your way home, if you can...

Saturday Happy Caturday

After waiting and waiting since yesterday,
this morning I was finally out in the porch again.
On Friday my Lap Lady wouldn't let me out
because it was about to start raining, thundering and lightning.
Although as it wasn't doing any of those at the time,

I really should have been allowed out.
Lux had asked me if I was able to go out
so I wanted to show him...Finally I'm Out!
There is no problem being out today -

the sun is shining and it's not too humid...yet.
First I jumped up on the table so I could see my yard better.
It's very important to look all around the yard
as there may be intruders.
Next I leap up onto the counter
because it's about 2 feet taller than the table.
Up there I can see everything.
I always like to visit with Louie the Lamb.
Sometimes Louie sits on the couch with me.
But today he has been keeping watch on the counter.
He let me know that there have been no intruders.
We are safe!
Louie and I are going to go take a nap on the couch.
My porch is my bliss!
I am one very Happy Cat, indeed!

Let me out - it's Friday - it's the Weekend!

Hey Mom, I've been sitting here forever...
Obviously, Willow doesn't want to play...
Look at her collapsed up there on the chair...
Come on, are you not paying attention???
Don't you hear me? I want to go out ...

Toesday in the Porch...

I love my screened-in porch.
Not only are there lots of good resting places,
but there is the screen itself.
The screens are very nice to rub my toes on. Sometimes I would like to go out of the porch
because there is grass just waiting to be eaten.
Come on, Mom, Open the Door, OK?????

Thanks on Thursday...

We received presents from Kashim and Othello!
Willow and I participated in the contest they held
and they sent us some presents for participating!
I was so excited to see my name on the envelope.
It certainly had very interesting smells on it too.
And look, they wrote us a letter too!
It even has their pictures on the top of it.
Boy, they are some terrific looking catboys!
There were mousies and balls to play with.
Willow, get out of my way!
You can't tell with Willow in the way,
but I am playing with a leopard colored cat ball!
These are such fun... And this gray mousie makes rattly noises! I had better catch my breath for a minute... Nope, it's still playtime!
Thank you so much for such fun toys,
Kashim & Othello!

My Nose Twin...

George over at Crews' Views issued a really fun challenge. He said to see how many cats you can find that are nose twins with you.
Right away I knew who not only has a nose like mine but even her face looks rather like mine!

My nose twin is the lovely Momma Grace!
Here's the two of us... What do you think? And look we both take care of "our" kittens too -
Willow is not really my kitten
but I love her as if she were my kitten. Ruse and Audace really are Momma Grace's kittens. Aren't they an adorable family?!?!?
Hey, do the kitten's noses look like mine too?!?!?

My NOMSS friend Bogart...

Willow and I accepted Karl's dare
to make friends with another species.
We found Bogart who is an Airedale Terrier
with a terrific blog.
We emailed him that we would like to be friends
and he wrote back that he lives with
"4 kitties and have a bunch of other cat bloggers
that I visit too, so I'd LOVE to be friends!"
I am so excited to have my first dog friend.
Willow posted today about Bogart with lots of pictures of him.
So I decided to make a collage of his pictures
to show everyone how great he is.
The cat in the collage is named Behemoth.
In the bottom two pictures they were laughing
while their mom was trying to take a picture
of Bogart's new ear trimming -
known as "ear-tography" according to Bogart!

Fun Furriday Friday

Last Sunday I told you how
my Lap Lady puts ice in my water bowl
when it is hot in my screened-in porch.
Well, she brought some out for me this morning.
She forgot to bring that flashy box with her
and I enjoyed quite a bit of my ice water
before she came back with it.
So, she was not in time to see me
actually enjoying the water.
However, she did find it necessary to take pictures
of me during my all -important grooming session.
You can see I was doing some fast grooming
as I look a little blurry here.
Then I had to check to make sure
that I didn't need my Lap Lady
to get me some more ice - nope, not yet...
So I can nap for a while
and then have some more ice water!
As Jeter Harris says, "Life is Grate!"
And speaking of Jeter,
his brother, Mickey Mantle tagged me
for a meme and I will get to work on that
after my nap - thanks, Mickey!

We have a Heat Wave...

Finally my Lap Lady has come back to do my typing for me!
Willow and I were a few of the winners
in Dragonheart's Scavenger Hunt Contest.
I would like to say congratulations
to the other winners in the contest:
Samantha & Tigger, Miss Peach and Kaze.
I also want to say here,
"Thanks for a great contest, Dragonheart"
and it was fun having my Food Lady
try to remember German
that she learned in high school!
It is extremely hot here in the midwest,
and getting hotter,

and I totally love it. My Big Janitor loves it also
but Willow and my Lap Lady are loving
the air conditioning inside.
Hey, it's time to board the Friday Ark!

Get Well Quick...

I just found out that Monty Q's babybean
was hurt with burns from spilling hot soup
and had to be airlifted to a hospital on Saturday.
Everycat is sending purrs that she'll be OK.

Darling Millie has an update today.
(And thanks to Skeezix for the graphic.)

Easy like Sunday Morning

Nothing like relaxing on a sunny Sunday.
I am one cat that loves the heat
and even though it's expected to be
at least 99 degrees,
I hope to stay out here all day long!
Don't worry - my Lap Lady keeps a bowl of water
out in the porch at all times.
She even puts ice cubes in it when it's this hot!
Then she goes in the pool or
back in the house with the A/C!
