Tortie Tuesday

It's the final Tortie Tuesday of tax season and nobody could be happier than me. I have been helping Mommy prepare so many tax returns but she just doesn't seem appreciative at all. For instance, it is very important to be accurate with what you enter on a tax return since mistakes can be costly so I snoopervise her data entry very closely but she complains about me being a little too close...
She says I'm too close and push in the keyboard drawer so she scrapes her knuckles trying to reach some of the keys...
Is it my fault her desk is too low? Seriously.
Kitties work so hard but our help isn't always appreciated. Do you agree?

Kinda makes me want to nap this Tortie Tuesday instead.

Enjoy your day anyway!

I do not have a head for numbers at all, Isabella, so I am very impressed by you! Your human should be more grateful for your help.

Why don't your mom love to scrapes her hand in that gap, My personal opinion , I think it's fun ! I really love to put my paws inside a little gap, and pretend I try to grab something...It's one of my favorite game : )

Isabella, it is very nice of you to try and help the Mom. We do the same thing. We sit in Mom's lap between her tummy and the keyboard, so we know just how much help you are for her. We know she is counting the hours now until the end. What a good girl you are Isabella. But every once in a while give her a nice snuggle.

For sure! Absolutely!

I agree with you completely, Isabella! A Tortie's work is never done!

Isabella the nap thing might be a good idea.Mom only has a few days left of taxes. You could always proof read her work after she is finished.

Isabella, I know just what you mean! We Torties work hard for our mom's and sometimes we aren't appreciated! Naps are the best solution for that. I know! Help her with a No-No bracelet again!

Whew! Sooooo close to the end! And then Mommeh can relax....finally!

Erika said...

I am trying to change my way of thinking about numbers. But I don't know. It is not happening fast enough (the change in my mind).
I feel about numbers the way your face looks in the last photo:)

Tell your Mommy that the word verification things says she is going to get to PARDI!!!! Just a few more days:)

Catherine said...

Oh what we mommies do to ensure our fur-babies are comfortable. Scraped knuckles to sleeping curled up in a tiny ball as to not disturb the kitty that is stretched out using 1/4 of the bed with Dad's using 1/2 of the bed, leaving only 1/4 of the bed for the mom. Yup... that's love... ;)

Congratulations to tax season being almost done ~ woot woot!!!

Your mom obviously doesn't appreciate all your hard work, Isabella--as is so often the case with lower lifeforms (i.e. humans).

Of course, this post reminds our mom that she needs to do her good copy of her taxes and send it in soon...Here in Canada we have till April 30th, thank goodness!

Oh Isabella, yoor little face says it all in that last pic. Yoo have a sort of ... un-appreciated look. We think yoo are a great help and yoor mommy should be grateful, even if her knuckles get scratched a bit. Wot's few scratches when yoo have an adorable tortie by yoor side?

Hot Rocks said...

You have been a very good kitty, helping out Mommy during tax season. I am sure that Mommy just needs a good rest after all this hard work, and then she will feel much better!

randomcreative said...

Kitty help is definitely NOT always appreciated. Good luck with the final stretch of tax season!

Laura said...

You sure remind me of Newman, who has to sit on my lap and across my arms as I try to type! He isn't a Tortie, but he has the "tude" of a tortie!

Tax season is stressful for many humans!
SOuds like you'll be getting lots of lovin now that it's over.

Well, Isabella, you just give your mama what-for!!!

Love from Oliver >^.^<

Grace said...

Absolutely!

Edward says... "You are so right!" He sends his love too - that is in between running around the house like a well...a feeling good cat! :)
Blessings!

Hi Isabella! We agree that you deserve a bit more appreciation for helping your mom with those nasty tax things. Our mom had a guy do hers because they are tough, so we know your mom probably appreciates the help but just is too busy to tell you right now. But we bet she will show you how she loved your help after the tax season is over!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We don't know how your Mom would manage without your loving help, Isabella. We sure hope she is planning to reward you well with some kitty treats.

The publicist and male person got their tax returns yesterday. They were happy for once. They say there is at least something good about not making any money!

memoriesforlifescrapbooks said...

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words...I do believe they are speaking directly about the last photo here! Love it :)

Ginger Jasper said...

Aww thats just not fair and you have helped so much. That last picture is priceless.. Hugs GJ xx

The Army of Four said...

I have to say, you work incredibly hard! I'd sure love to sit up on my Mom's lap and help like that - but she says I'm "too big". Can you believe that?!? Huh.
Speaking of saying things, try saying "Tortie Tuesday of tax season" real fast three times. It's HARD!
Luv,
Dave

Ann said...

I'm sure that your mom is just overly excited about tax season coming to an end Isabella. I bet she really does appreciate all your help

Furkidsmom said...

We know your Mom appreciates your help. Tax season really stesses the humans.

Will Isabella be sharing her tax return?

Au and Target said...

Snap! We are fellow office snoopervisers!

Reeni said...

Yay! I'm glad it's the last Tuesday for tax season! Your Mom deserves a break! My Mom does the same thing when I try to help. Love, Moon

The Island Cats said...

You're right, Isabella, your mom should be thanking you for helping...not complaining about scraping her knuckles!

Duni said...

You're such a great helper, Isabella. You should get a raise in the form of treats ;-)
(and I bet Mommy appreciates your help VERY much despite scraping her knuckles)

Re said...

It is cool enough here this am that we haff the windows open. But, it is still dark outside and Mommy just made this loud, weird noise when she saw your last picture. The neighborhood must be wondering ...

storybeader said...

what an innocent face! Pretty soon, your mommie won't have to worry about mistakes on forms... at least other people's forms... {:-D

Anny said...

We don't like to do them taxes thingy too.. and we have not submitted ours...

a peace offering of maybe a catnip toy will keep Missy Is happy. Your knuckles must be hurting.. poor you.

tahtimbo said...

That last photo is priceless! It's like Isabella is saying, "You've got to be kidding, right?" :-)

Sewinggranny - Mona said...

Oh Isabella, I am sure Mommy appreciates your help!

Splendid Little Stars said...

Oh Isabella, you are so perturbed. But you have me laughing! You must be patient with your mommy now. She is very tired of taxes, taxes, taxes, and more taxes. We all know she appreciates your help and will probably soon give you a special treat (if she hasn't already!).
