Who hath a better friend than a cat? - William Hardwin

Me and mum are furiends. Heck we are even furiends with benefits. At least the benefits of sharing a nice warm bed. It got coldish here again, mum had turned off the heaty monster in the dungeon, but when the house started to get cold, mum turned it back on.

Sharing a bed? Yeah, I can soak up some of here warms and she gets my warms too. I spent 5 hours the other night with her, jumped out for a bit, then came back for another hour later. 
 Me with mum, she is working on the puter. I push my paws under the puter. It is nice and warms on my paws.

Mum says she is off to meet another kitty mum later today. I will report the visit when she gets back.

Have a good week everyone.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Me and mum have had our early AM snuggles and brekkie. Did a bit of fevver watching, we saw the hummerbirds come to the feeder.

It was all nice early this week. Then it got all cold and windy. Mum even turned the heaty monster on the the dungeon yesterday and then let it run first thing this morning. She turned it off again and said she will just watch to see how warms the house is today.
To help keep me and mum warm I have been holding her down. She has been watching Downton Abbey, all six seasons. She just now working on season five.

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Well the hots showed up for a couple of days, complete with thunder boomers. Today is a bit cooler. Plus we had wind.

So our pretty pink tree has made all the confetti. Mum was happy she was home when it was all purrty so she could really enjoy it for a change.
Plus all of the pruning mum did last week. She got it all moved from by the metal monster room out to the  street.
 It all disappeared one after noon while mum was out for just a little bit the village people came by and scooped it all up. Now mum says she needs to weed some flower beds.
Hope you enjoyed the garden, see you next week. Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Did St. Francis preach to the birds? Whatever for? If he really liked birds he would have done better to preach to the cats. - Rebecca West

Excuse me? I don't need no sermon! On what? Not eating birds? Nah, me and mum just watch them. We have now seen all of our usual birds that hang about in the summer. So now we are on the lookout for special guys that fly through on their way north. Extreme closeup of Mr Rose-breasted grosbeak.
 Mum went out on Caturday to help teens learn to drive better. Mum doesn't actually teach, she just chases after traffic cones when the get booted. So another 30 kids have a better foundation at being better drivers.

Sunday me and mum hung out. I woke her up early to get and give loves for Mum's Day. Otherwise we had a quiet day. Mum has been going back and watching Downton Abbey. Just about done with season four.
 Me inside while mum cooked her dinner. We are getting all of the confetti from our purrty tree. The flowers will all be gone through soonest.
 Mum's dinner, simple. A nice steak and salad. Me waiting for my share!
 Yep, I got some. She wouldn't dare not give me a few bites, otherwise she might get a surprize or two from me!
Happy week.

Happy Mum's Day

Happy Day to all of the Mum's out there. Special loves to my own mum, you are so special to me.

Saturday, May 13, 2017


HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Things are nice around here, mum  has been outside working and hasn't even had to wear a jacket. That makes her happy. It also means it is nice enuf to have open windows!
 Mum missed the chair when she tossed her jacket the other day. I was holding it down and furring it up until she rescued it from the floor.
 Sniff, sniff. Nothing to smell, these are fake flowers. Mum thought I was trying to eat them and told me I shouldn't eat them. Plastic isn't good for my tummeh.
Me holding mum down. I love lap time and try to get as much as I can. Hope all of you get lots of lap time this weekend too.

Happy Weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. Mum retook our pic with her fancy flashy box. We look purrty good.
 Here is an extreme closeup of our crabby apple tree in full flower, looking good. It won't last long, but we enjoy it while we can.
 Here is the whole tree. Mum was out pruning the deaded little branches from the tree. Plus she pruned a lot of other stuff too.
 Here is our bleeding heart all in full bloom as well. Spring is so nice with all of the flowers. 
 Here is Fleur, she has a wonderful sun puddle to sit in by the crabby apple tree.
All that pruning? Here is the pile. Mum has to tame it down by getting it in smaller pieces and near the street by Sunday. The peoples from the village will be by to pick it up. It will save mum lots of trips to the compost pile!
Happy weekend.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. Mum was out tonight, she came  home smelling of lemonade! Yep, just lemonade. Seemss she was at the library (where else) as they had a little thank you for the people who volunteer. That was nice.

So once she got home, I demanded lap time and got it.

Now she better let me check out my furiends blogs tonight!

Cats regard people as warmblooded furniture - Jacquelyn Mitchard

Yeah and I took advantage of it last night. Mum did another of her racy car weekends. This time it was just Caturday and Sunday.
Sure mum had to check out some stuff on the puter, but as soon as she was done, I was in her lap. She even waited to work on the Sunday newsy paper.

Thanks to all who stopped by on Derby Day. Mum said she dreamed about Derby on his Gotcha Day. Heh, he was coming back to haunt her!

Caturday - Derby Day

HiYa Ducky here. Welcom to my Derby Party for when the horsies run for roses. So come on in and have some noms and maybe a few nip juleps.
Lots of foods so help  yourselves, if you don't see something you like, then ask the staff for it.

Nip juleps, but be careful, they can be powerful. Plus kittens, only milk and water for you. 

I would like to raise a toast to my late, grate brofur Derby. He was adopted on the first Caturday in May back in 2005. Officially it was on May 7, so Sunday is his official Gotcha Day, but we celllybrate Derby Day every year just for him.Cheers to you Derby, love you and miss you.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. It has been wet and rainy the end of last week and early this week. The sun came out good yesterday and began drying things out. Mum says she needs to use the grass eater today.

 Mum took some new pictures of us yesterday. Ya gotta move your finger mum, it sort of got in the frame.
Mum put out the feeder for the Orioles as they should be coming back soon. So our later spring birds should be showing up soon. Haven't seen any of them yet, haven't seen any hummers either.
 Our pink confetti tree is about to bloom, mum says she loves when it blooms as she can lay in her sleepy spot inside and see all the nice pinkness.
We even have a few wild violets blooming in the yard. Some people might think these are weeds, but mum says they don't hurt anything. Plus they don't take over the grass either.

That is about it for this weekend. Oh, Ducky says to stop by for sure on Caturday. It is Derby Day when the horsies run. He is having a party.

Farewell Flynn

Me and mum's hearts are sad today as one of our special furiends has gone to The Bridge. Flynn, one of the original Gorgeous Gingers, has reunited with his litter mate Eric.
 Here the two of them are planted in the green house pots. So that is how we grow into Gorgeous Gingers!
 Farewell Sweet Flynn. You are free from health issues now. Fully healthy. So run free, have fun with Eric and the rest of the gang at The Bridge. Say hi to Derby for me and mum.

Only animals were not expelled from Paradise. - Milan Kundera

Yeah, just you humans messed it up! We kitties are blameless!

Cold, windy and rainy this weekend. No open windows, mum has been watching some older moving picture box shows. Binging she calls it, but she says she is about done with this. 
 I snuggled with mum as she sat, but she did go out with Miss Lynn to see a fancy show.
 Happy New Month and Week.
