 HiYa Ducky here, Happy Caturday. Me and mum are getting off to a slow start. She stayed but a bit late watching the sailing boats flying around the Hauraki Gulf in New Zealand. Sad to say that the US boat lost four races in the past two days. So that means they are out of the competition. Considering the US boat nearly sunk a couple of weeks ago it was good to see them back, but not sailing well enuf to be competative. 

So the US lost to the Eye-talians and they will race the You-Kay boat in a couple of weeks. Mum will be up late those nights watching. Then that winner will race the NZ team for the America's Cup. 

Me sitting in the front window watching things. Later today I will be watching for snow to come down, another good snowfall expected so mum will be bizzy with snow Sunday and Monday. 

Mum finished the latest blankie last night while she was watching the sailing. She pulled out some of the newly bought yarns for the next blankie, but didn't start it. She will do that today. Plus she finished her 12th book yesterday too for the year. 

So me and mum will hang out and do whatever. 

Stay safe, stay healthy, wear a mask, get the vaccine when you can.

Puzzle Thursday

 We have had a few clear and cold days and nights following our snow. Plus we are likely to get more snow this weekend. Not to worry, me and mum have lots of foods for both of us, so we are all set. Mum did get a fresh supply of books and, sheesh she went and got more yarns to fill up her stash. She gets paniciky when the stash goes down. 

Eric and Flynn's mum mentioned about mum eating celery. Yep she does, she likes crunchy raw veggies and with celery she will even fill it up with peanut butter!

Me working on playing with my newer nip toy. Plus mum did a moovie too! Enjoy. 

Ok, time for puzzles. One of the new yarns mum got and one of me! Enjoy.

Mini-ManCat Monday

 Cats spit on their hands and rub it all over their bodies.

Yes we do that and we cats are probably cleaner than some humans!

Mum has seen 2 of the 3 new people now living next door. The female human has yet to been seen. While mum was cleaning up the last of the snow yesterday she went over to say hello and introduce herself. They do have a woofie and mum got a pic of him, and one of him and his male human. Woofies name is Ollie. 

Yep, we got a bit more snow, just a few inches and mum did not take any new pictures. You know, snow is snow. Nothing new to see. Just a little cleaner white for a few days. 

Mum heated up wings again for dinner during the game. This time she was careful to not drop any on the floor. But she did share a little bit of chicky with me again. Thanks mum!

Feetsball Report

It is over. No Stouper Bowl for the Pack. Mum said they didn't play very well so didn't deserve to go. Mum did her share of yelling at the moving picture box. Some of which was to keep telling the guy to "Shut the F*ck Up!" Sorry about the bad word. Mum says he is a mansplainer and doesn't know when to be quiet. She saw a pic that showed a big bag of throat lozenges. Well if you were quieter you wouldn't need the big bag!

So the big game will be the TB team versus the KC team. Mum hopes the KC team wins. 

Have a good week.

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Me and mum are planning on taking it easy today. What? Oh mum says she needs to use the sucky monster a bit. Time to pick up some of my furs. 

I almost scored a chicken wing last night. Mum heated up some wings from the store. She took them to eat while watching the moving picture box. She didn't realize one dropped off her little plate. So while I sat so nice while she ate, I only got a tiny bit of chicky. As she took her bones back to the kitch-hen she notice I was doing something on the floor with something. At first she thought I had yakked up. Then she turned the light on and saw the whole wing. So she picked it up from me, but she did pull off the outside stuff and did give me a bit more of the chicky. Thanks mum. 

Mum was watching some of the racy sailing boats last night. They took forever to get the race going, but once they did it was an exciting race. The You-Kay gang won again!

Mum finally got the telly-scope out of the box and put it together. The white thing on the left is just a cover she has for the lens. She hasn't taken it outside to look at the moon or stars. When it is clear out around here it is cold and mum is a wimp and doesn't want to get cold sitting outside using it. 

So what had mum looked at? Well, the fevver feeders and you can take pics with her phone, but she hasn't gotten a good shot yet. She doesn't think she has it set up like it should be. 

We have new naybors and mum thinks they have a woofie. When she came home yesterday from getting foods she saw someone walking into the house as she drove by. Mum said it looked like a corgi butt. 

Plus tomorrow we get to watch feetsball with our Packers playing. Can I ask they you all wish our team on to victory? Thanks. 

Have a good weekend.

Puzzle Thursday

Woohoo! On Wednesday we had a bright sunny day. Made me and mum happy. Plus I think mum is happy we have a new prezzie too. Mum watched a huge amount on the moving picture box yesterday. Smiles and happy tears too. 

While it got sunny meant it got cold too. Mum had to push a little bit of snow off and came back inside with rosy cheeks. She said it is nice to have to wear a mask to help keep her face warm. 

Mum says if she gets more clear nights she will have to break out the telly-scope!

Three puzzles for you. A harder one of the blankie! That one took mum over 20 minutes!

Mini-ManCat Monday

I have found that the bigger the cat... the smaller the box he insists on getting into! - Iowa Pat

I am not that much of a box kitty but recently I was in a rather long box for me, a mini-mancat!

Me and mum had a quiet weekend, mum stayed home all weekend. We did watch fevvers for a bit of time on the weekend. Seeing who comes to visit our feeders. We even saw the silly robin that never went south for the winter. 

Mum watched a lot of feetsball this weekend and yep, worked on the crow-shay. She finished the blankie she started last week, it only took her 9 days to make the blankie. Then she started another. Mum, you will have used all of your yarn stash! Slow down! So much nervous energy to work off. 

The finished blankie above and me with the new one below. I like these colors too.

Mum did watch some sailing stuff on the weekend. Those ships are flying and the Mericky boat actually looked like it was taking off. Wasn't supposed to do that and it crashed down on the water hard and tipped over on its side. Thankfully no human got hurt but the boat is hurt bad. It has a hole in the bottom. You can go here and see the action and rescue. 

Feetsball Report

The Pack - they showed the guys from LaLa Land who is boss. They looked good and mum didn't even say words from the bad word list at the moving picture box. Next up on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, the Bucs. Another warm weather team. Heh, it is going to be cold and snowy next weekend! Welcome to Whiskerconsin!

Mum watched at least part of the other four games. She is OK with the two teams on the other conference. The Bills get to go visit the Chiefs next Sunday. 

The Stouper Bowl is just three weeks away and one more game to win to get there! Go Pack!

Have a good week everyone, we get a new prezzie this week. Hope everything stays peaceful.

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday! Hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start, mine is. First the heaty monster is blowing lots of hot air to make me all warms. Then I get to look out at a very pretty outside as we got just a little bit of snow overnight. All white and clean outside. 

Me and mum will be waiting for later today as we can watch The Pack play feetsball against the LaLa Land Rams. The game will be played on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field! Go Pack Go!

I see I had a comment from a human last time, someone from New Zealand! Welcome! Do you know Poppy Q, my cat furiend, who lives in Wellington? Me and mum were watching the sailing from your country last night. The boats were flying too fast but it was still interesting. It looks so nice to see summer with sunshine, warm waters, green trees and such. 

Sitting on mum so she goes and gets her brekkie and then cleans off the fevver feeders. Just enuf snow to make it hard for them to find the foods. Then we can do whatever until game time. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Puzzle Thursday

 Hey, mum says yesterday was a hysterical day! Yep! Not sure what was so funny about it. I wasn't laffing, didn't see mum laffing either. Er., umm, wait. Yes mum? Oh, historical not hysterical. Mum says what happened was not at all haha funny. OK, got it mum. 

Mum was out and running around most of the day. First out to get the motor monster serviced with an oil change and such. On the way home stopped to get foods for the week and home for lunch. Did she stay home then? No. Off she went to get a library book, then off to see Miss Lynn to give her the peppermint bark she had set aside for her. Then, dropped stuff off we don't need anymore at the charity shop, then put gas in the metal monster. Then she finally came home for the day. Phew. She drove almost 100 miles yesterday, more than she has drive in one day in a long time. 

So mum had done all her outside chores for the week. That means she can stay home with me and cuddle. Maybe watch the snow fall later today.

Mini-ManCat Monday

When the mouse laughs at the cat there's a hole nearby. - Nigerian Proverb

Happy Monday everyone. Me and mum had a quiet weekend. Mum did her usual chores, watched a bit of the moving picture box. Some, but not all of the feetsball games. 

Me, I napped, played with my mousies, sat on mum's lap and snoopervised her crow-shay.

We actually had some sunshine as well, but it got cloudy at the end of the day. So that meant mum still hasn't had a chance to use the telly-scope. Oh well mum, some day soon. 

Back to Miss Megan and getting my claws clipped. I think some of the comments on those who have indoor / outdoor cats where they are outside so their claws wear down. Me? I am an inside only kitty to they get a bit long and sharp. Mum only cllips when they get so sharp she can feel them through her clothes. 

Feetsball Report

All sorts of games one for the weekend. Mum watched most of Da Bears game, but they lost it. So come on Caturday our team, The Pack, will be playing the the team from LaLa Land. So a team from a warm area of the country coming to the frozen tundra! Love it. 

Have a good week everyone!

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday! Hope everyone is doing well. At least things are much quieter in the DC place which makes mum happy. When she is happy, I am too!

So what I am up to? Not much. Mum decided to get herself a prezzie last week based on watching the planets. So she bought a telly-scope. She hasn't used it yet cuz it has been so cloudy. I liked the big long box it came in!

I was in it for a bit, but then ignored it, so mum put it out with the recycling. She has been clearing things out a bit after the holly-daze. All that after getting the Christ-mouse stuff put away. 

We have a crazy robin that won't go south for the winter. Mum is pretty sure it is the same bird from the markings. Thankfully for him mum has food and water out!

Mum finished one blankie and started the next one. She got the one done while watching the chaos the other night. Plus she started the next one. Plus watching the Flix, stuff she recorded and reading!

Want to say farewell to a lovely lady cat, Zoey from Island Cats. Mum always loved here eyes, so we did a puzzle of her. Farewell sweet lady.

Puzzle Thursday

Me and mum are super sad at what is happening in our country. I haven't seen mum with so much leaky eyes in a super long time. Please say a prayer than that our country heals. 

It has been cloudy and sometimes foggy too. Which means you can't see too far, but not so bad that mum can't drive around and see to drive. But it can make super cool stuff happen when it gets foggy and cold, then you get something mum calls rime ice on trees and such. 

These were taken later in the morning so it wasn't even as thick as it had been earlier. Doesn't mother nature make things purrty!

Mum did all sorts of running around the other day. Saw her doctor (come back in 6 months), did a Targez run, and went to get her toes painted. She went wild, for her, with the color. Sorta reddish, purple with sparkle!

The other day I mentioned that mum had cut my claws and Miss Megan objected. I am not sure why, I was just getting a pawdicure. You know like you ladies get your fingers and toes all nicely clipped and painted. Just that my toes don't get painted. Amember that scratching posts don't help us with our back claws, just the front ones. Plus my first peoples took my front claws out so I don't have to sharpen those. I just sharpen my paws which doesn't actually hurt the furniture. 

I was getting into mum's bag with some yarn in it. I was having a grate time with it and I usually leave mum's yarn alone. Wanna know why I was so interest? My favorite play mousie had gotten inside! I swatted it back out and mum put the yarn bag back in its place. 

Hmm, puzzles, what to share, what to share! One of Derby winking! and One of me!
