The Week Ahead

Is it really Monday already?
We had a fabulous weekend but it went by way too fast. Normally every day is the same for us but we're dreading this week. We're getting a new roof on our house which will be nap disrupting and extremely noisy. We'll be hanging out with Mommy downstairs which is as far away from the roof as we can get. Depending on how Mommy we hold up, we might take the whole week off from our blog.  We sure hope your week is much quieter and relaxing than ours will be!

Enjoy some naps for us!

Finally, Sun!

We've had a few days here and there of sun but for the first time since last year we're going to have an entire week of sun! I'm going to soak up this sunpuddle. 
Hey Angel, you're hogging my sunpuddle!
Even BatCat is taking some of my sunshine!
Mommy, would you please make Angel and BatCat go away so I can have the entire sunpuddle?
Oh my Cod, Chica. Seriously?
Sisters are pains in the patooties.

Do you have sun in your neck of the woods?

Happy weekend to you!

Thankful Thursday

Recently we won a giveaway from our friend Phoebe and her family - a package of thirteen toys crocheted by her mom!
So many goodies!
Isabella woke up to see what all we got...
She even played with them too...
I loved bunny kicking the banana...
Isabella imitated it...
MOL! I crack myself up!
Anyway, many thanks to Phoebe for all the toys! We enjoy them very much! 

What are you thankful for this Thursday?

Hope you have a happy day!

Caught in the Act!

We were left alone this weekend while Mommy and Daddy went to garden centers. They were supposedly looking for plants and veggies so imagine our surprise when we found this photo on Mommy's phone...
One of the nurseries they went to has a cat on duty. Yeah, okay, that's fine and dandy but  apparently somedaddy couldn't resist it...
He's giving that cat OUR scritches!
Oh yeah, we totally know that feels so good...
Obviously some blissed out nursery kitty does too...
What were we doing while all this was going on? Nothing. We had absolutely nothing to do...
We're thankful they came home with only tomatoes and peppers and we both got lots and lots of scritches from Daddy! He's forgiven.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Reception Disruption

Earlier this week we had sunshine and warm temps so I decided instead of napping, I'd watch a little Birdie TV...
Trouble is, for the full three minutes I was awake in front of the window, not one birdie showed up.
Mommy, something is wrong with this channel...
She had no idea what was wrong since everything was in good working order. Later when she was pulling out of the driveway, she saw what was causing the disruption...
That poofy tailed guy runs across our roof to the tree then jumps into the bird feeder. If he sees us in the window he gets on a branch, taps his feets quickly and gives us quite the lecture. I'm sure if I understood squirrel, I'd be offended. He's definitely a squirrel with an attitude! 

Do you have squirrels with attitudes in your neck of the woods?

Hope you have a disruption free weekend!

Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had a mostly sunny weekend which meant our peeps started cleaning up the yard. This can't be done without my snoopervision...
I meowed lots of direction and of course Mommy answered me back. Daddy is sure the neighbors wonder what kind of weeds are actually growing in our yard. Anyway, it was tiring work so I spent the evening cuddling with my sisfur...
Daddy took that picture of us and he was under the impression we'd look at him if he made funny noises. Uh, yeah, no. 

Anything exciting happen over your weekend?

Happy Monday!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Flashback with Angel Sadie.

We're celebrating an early Sadieday on Cinco de Mayo because, well, we can. You'd think since we're half Mexicats that we would've been prepared but we're not thanks to the one who's responsible for us being half gringa. Oh well, we hope you enjoy this la repeticion from cinco years ago!
****************************
Hola amigos!  It's Sadieday and it's also Cinco de Mayo so I'm feeling a little festive today...
Since it is Sadieday, I came up with cinco ways to celebrate the holiday:
Uno)  Live it up with cinco treats given every cinco minutes.
Dos)   Enjoy cinco strolls this holiday weekend.                 
Tres)  Take cinco naps.                        
Four)  Relax with cinco belly rubs.         
Cinco) Limit yourself to cinco niptinis or Bark-a-ritas...
As you can tell, I thought of the last one a couple of Bark-a-ritas too late.

Anywoo, I hope you have a great Sadieday and a fun Cinco de Mayo weekend!

So Close...

Imagine my surprise when I spotted a delicious cute little birdie on our deck! Unfortunately there was glass between him and me...
He just sat there calmly while I chattered and went bonkers. I made such a commotion Daddy came to see what was going on. Instead of letting me have him, he told spoilsport Mommy. She was afraid of the neighbor cat getting it so she dumped the grape tomatoes into a bowl, made Daddy hold me while she opened the door (because I really wanted to get to that birdie) and she scooped the birdie up in the container... 
I knew exactly what to do with the birdie but they didn't so they called a local rescue who didn't answer the phone. Mommy then asked Maggie and Cammie's birdie expert mom what to do. She said it was a MacGillivary's Warbler and probably just stunned. Sure enough the birdie eventually began trying to fly in the container so Daddy released the little guy near my birdie bush and my breakfast flew away...
Dagnabbit anyway. That was so close but yet so far. It did make for an exciting weekend though!

How was your weekend?

Happy May!

Friday Tail, uh, Tale

This bench thingy serves many purposes in our house. It's providing me an extra step down from the bed via the cedar chest. It's the perfect spot for a nap in a sunpuddle...
My little sisfur loves to scratch on it so much it sounds like popcorn popping. Daddy loves when she does it in the middle of the night...
Whoa there, chica! You're getting a little close to my Tortie tail...
Second strike, girlie! Don't make me move hurt you!
*WHAP WHAP WHAP*
I warned her, Mommy. Twice. She started it so why do I feel sorry for her?
Kinda takes the fun out of it when she pouts but don't worry, I didn't hurt her. Anyway, did you see how fast I moved? I still have plenty of pep in my Tortie step!

Have a great weekend!

Tortie Cosequin Review #ChewyInfluencer

Ever since I was a youngin', I'm pretty sure I got more napping genes than jumping genes and as I'm now 10, it's becoming more apparent. I have a hard time jumping down from higher places and I even have an occasional limp on my back leg. When we got an opportunity from our friends at Chewy.com to try out Nutramax Cosequin Joint Health Cat Supplement I was up for it. Well, okay, I was woke up for it...
Cosequn helps support cartilage production and protects existing cartilage from breakdown. It's been proven safe for cats in published, controlled U.S. studies. It also helps keep our joints healthy so we can jump, pounce and play. One Cosequin capsule was sprinkled on my food in the morning and another one sprinkled on my food at night. I tried it for two weeks and let's just say, there might have been a night or two of a thundering herd of one Tortie. Hard to believe, huh?
Anyway, I need to try it for a longer period of time to see if it helps me jump a little better. Thank Cod I don't need anything to help me nap better!

If you'd like to try Nutramax Cosequin Joint Health Cat Supplement or anything else from Chewy.com, be sure to check them out! We love the fast delivery of our foods on a regular basis with auto delivery. Plus delivery is free on orders over $49!
Have you tried Cosequin or any other supplements before?

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Weekend Wrap Up

We're adjusting to our new schedule around here although I get a bit confused when Mommy doesn't even go into the office for days at a time now. I follow her all over the house to snoopervise whatever it is she's doing and am grateful when she stays put for awhile...
We were able to rest Friday when Daddy took her to her happy place - Cape Lookout...
When I think of a happy place, it's filled with birds, fish and nip but she enjoyed it which is what matters.

Do you or your beans have a happy place?

Hope you have a great Monday!

Finally Friday

Tax season is finally over and we're off every Friday for the rest of the year! Yay! We spent the week enjoying much deserved relaxification. *yawn*...
Mommy has been doing things around the house that she's put off for months. She also went with a friend to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest...
The rain held off long enough for them to enjoy the 40 acres of tulips and seeing many different varieties...
Today is supposed to be our nicest day of the year so far with sunny skies and a high near 70. We'll be sure to soak up some sunpuddles before they give way to rain once again this weekend. 

Do you have any weekend plans?

Happy Friday to you!

Tortie Tuesday on Tax Day!

The rain has returned and our mommy is falling into her usual after tax season funk so I thought it was the perfect time to remind her of my wise advice from way back in 2012. Here's a rerun which she needs to hear again. Okay, maybe I'm hoping she makes another cake so we have frosting. A Tortie can dream! Anyway, hope you take my advice to heart too!
******************************
Yay it's Tortie Tuesday and it's also Tax Day! We had to help Mommy work an extra day this year since yesterday was the Emancipation holiday in Washington, DC so the whole country got an extra day to invest in their IRAs and to file their taxes today...
But now it's time to get back to normal around here. One of the things Mommy doesn't like about tax season is that so many things get put on hold because she's working so much. My wise Tortie advice is that life is too short to be put on hold! I even convinced Mommy that it's okay to take a cake decorating class she's always wanted to and she listened! Here's her first cake that she made last Thursday:
She said it was more stressful than a 6 hour tax return but she did have fun. We love the buttercream frosting and can't wait for the next 8 weeks of cakes!
Huh, what's that Mommy? Why are the next cakes going to Daddy's work? Can we at least have some frosting?

Anyway, today's lesson is: Life is too short, enjoy the frosting!
If there's something you've always wanted to do - do it!

Hope you have a very Happy Tortie Tuesday!
