Femme Friday

Hello Bloggie Friends! It's me, Squashies, with my Friday Femme Post. As you can see I was snoozing. It was a long night at our house last night, with mommy working on some big project for Cly Ants. TK and I did our part and stayed on the desk, even when it was time to go and relax on the deck.  We don't mind too much, we just want to be where mommy is.
Mommy asked me to tell you that nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals invited her to come visit her sanctuary tomorrow, and mommy said "YES!". So hopefully she can works on that post this weekend. We sure hope things slow down for mommy soon. I only had 3 brushings yesterday!

Have a great weekend Bloggie Friends!
Love Squashies, and TK too.
Happy Belated Birthday to our Cousin Haley.
We love you!

Not so Wordless Wednesday

I know TK said we would talk about the problems the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals is having, but mommy not has time to helps us today cause workie is being oppressive. So I will just show you these pictures of me helping mommy while she works.

That was a pawsome stretch!
Just so no one feels bad for me and my little bed, you will notice that the big bed is unoccupied so I could have gotten in it, but I didn't want to.  My little bed is very comfy too.

We hopes we can finish our post about the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals tomorrow. Sorry!
(Thanks to the Katnip Lounge's mommy for cluing us in that the baby birdie is a robin.)

Found: One Baby Bird

So I is gonna tell about what happens last Friday when we was getting ready for our weekend. Mommy was winding down from a busy week and daddy was going out to water the lawns when daddy comes back in and tells mommy to comes outsides and shows her a baby birdy that falled out of hims nest! So mommy and daddy looks all around in the bushes and trees to finds the nest so they can puts him back in, but they not can finds it.

When mommy comes back in I can tells she has a big sad. She sits in her chair, then she grabses her computer and starts googling “found nestlings”. Then she finds a page that tells her how to takes care of it, so she runs upstairs and gets a shoey-box, one of daddy’s soft tee-shirts* and my heaty-pad. She went outside and pickeded the baby birdy up and puts him in the box with the shirt all wrapped around.

Baby Birdie (the shirt was clean when she puts him in der, but him a messier eatter than Squashies, and mommy not thinks to take hims picshur til later.)

She reads more that sais after baby birdy is warm that him has to eat every 15 minutes during the days. I was thinking I should peeps and maybe I gets feeded that much too!

So she goes into the kitshen and I thinks it is time to eats because mommy goes to OUR cabernet and gets a can of OUR toona. But she not feeds us; she opens the can and then opens the box and starts giving the birdy OUR food! Can you believe that?!?

Every time mommy opens the box the little baby birdie opens hims mouth really wide and mommy takes a little toona in tweezers and drops it in hims big wide open mouth. He sure eatted a lot of toona for a little baby birdie! So I sits next to her an starts peeping likes the birdie wif my mouth open and everything. But I not gets any toona.

Baby Birdie nomming our Toona.

But then mommy reads more webbies bout baby birdies and she sees that she has to feeds the baby birdy every 15 minutes during the day for 50 days. 50 DAYS! That’s like a whole life time. My poor mommy would not be able to does anything for like EVER!

So then she starts looking up other webbies about where you can takes found baby birdies. She makes LOTs of telefone calls cause nobody wants a baby birdie on Friday night. Then the Departmints of Nachural Resorses sais she can takes them to this nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals that they knows. When she calls the lady not anser her fones and her message sais that she is feeding all the animals but peoples can drop off animals if they can comes over. So mommy figures she can drives over to her place.

She stops typing in the computer and stops typing on the phone and she starts typing on her blackberries. She sees where the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals lives. Her blackberries sais that it is over a hour away, but our daddy, him is really smart, sais him knows a shortcut. But mommy not get how to does it, so daddy desides he will take her and the baby birdie to the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals.

Mommy sais that they not gets to where the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals lives until 9pm. But the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals cames out and takes her baby birdie anyways. She must really bees a nice lady. Then she gets mommy to fills in some papers while she goes in and feeds the baby birdie some more foods. The lady was very nice, she not makes mommy feel silly or stoopid for feeding the baby birdie cat food, or for not letting the baby birdie die on the lawns. She sais mommy did a ok job of taking care of the baby birdie for 4 hours. (Mommy sais I should sais that you not apposed to use teeshirts as nests cause they gots chemicals when they gets the washie. She finds this out from the papers that the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals gives her.)

So we not knows what kind of baby birdie him is, but we hopes the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals helps him to grows big and strong and can finds hims way in the world.


Dis a flashback picshur of the only time me and Sqaushies ever been in the tree together. 
We not want our friends to misses us while we is talking about the baby birdie.

Pee Ess- Tomorrow mommy wantsa talk about the nice-lady-that-takes-care-of-all-the-animals and her problems wif the mean peoples that moves in next door and then not wants to lives next to her animals, so even though she been there for a very long times, they wants to make HER move.

Femme Friday

Sweet Praline says we can have a "Femme Friday" for us ladycats. Because this is my first lady post I thought I would show you "Grrl Time" with mommy and me.  This is when mommy and I go in the "Grrl Time" room and we fixes ourselves so we look nice for all the fellows. Sometimes I take a bath, but mostly I snoopervise mommy's efforts.

I sit here on the cool marble counter, while mommy givers her furs, face and teefies a brushing. She has many different brushes to use, so sometimes it takes awhile.

I think you missed a spot in your painting mommy!

Once mommy is done brushing herself, I get "Mack time". That's when I walk back and forth along the edge of the counter, and say "MAAACCCCK" really loudly so she remembers that I need brushings too. I never stand or sit still when being brushed, I have to pace so mommy has to chase me. It is wonderful fun.

When we are done, mommy picks me up, which I used to be ascairt of, and puts me on the floor. She makes sure she doesn't let go of me until all my feet are touching.

We loves our Grrl Time together!

Snoozin in our own kitty circle

A lot of the times Squashies gets in my bed when I nots in it.  I not likes to disturb her when she's sleeping.  So when I is ready to nap, a lot of times I end up in her little bed.  I not fits so good.

This picshur is from the winter, sees the snows out the window?

But today we sleeps in our own beds. I forgets how comfy it is in my big-boy, mancat beds.

     I thinks Sqaushies might needs a big-girl bed too.... Maybe mommy can move some of this work stuff off the desk so we can has 2 big beds...

Happy Birthday, Midnight


He was brought-up feral; He was a Mancat.

He didn't like to be held and rarely crawled into a lap, but when he was in the house, he wanted to be near us. He loved brushings, and he always slept in bed next to my head. 

Happy 4th Birthday Midnight. We miss you.

Truthful Tuesday

Hi Bloggie friends, Squahies here. I want to tell you about something that is a little bit embarrassing that happened to me.

Background: In the evening I like to sit at the top of the big cat tree so I can keep an eye on TK, who gets a bit feisty after he gets his shot. He always wants to rassle with me, but he is a lot bigger and sometimes he gets carried away, and I don’t like it, not one bit.

So this weekend I got a manicure. And when I went to get in the tree, I forgot that my fingernails were a lot shorter… So I made my usual approach. As you can see is a very long way for a little kitty like me.

And THEN... This happened!?!

I have an embarrassed. I've never missed my jump before.

I'm only telling because I know mommy had the flasybox, so I might well be upfront about it. But it's only because of my fingernails... You still love me don't you?

Two Hungry Mommies!

Hello Bloggie Friends, TK here. I wants to show you something amazing that is happening in my domain.
Mommy sais that when you is a mommy with babies, you has to eat a lot to makes milk foods to feeds them. She sais the mommies not likes to be away from their babies for a long time so they is opportunistick eatters. Dis means they wants their food as fast as possible so they can get back to their little ones.

So I tells you before that we feeds the kitties that not has homes in my domain.  Daddy puts kitty foods next to the tree that also has the birdy feeder. This a good place cause there is a fense and lots of underbrush for thems to hide when something bad comes. This way they not get eatted.

One days I is looking out over my domain and I jumps up in alert. My tail was twitching and mommy looks out and grabs the flashybox. And dis what she sees:

And den she sees Dis: (Mom shoots it through my windows so is not so clear.) 
The deers eatted the birdies foods!

Den a few minutes later, she sees dis! (You can clicky to biggarfy) Is a racoon who eatted the kitty-kibbles!

Is funny how they is not worried about each others. And is the little one is the meat eatter too. Is hard to see but both these beautimous girls has swollen areas dat my mommy sais mean they is mommies.

We hopes you enjoys this veiw of my domain in the springs! We hopes that in a few weeks we can shows you the babies!

Has a great day bloggie friends!

Joke Time

TK: Whats you call it when the Temptashun bag is emptee, Squashies?

Squashies: I don't know TK, what do you call it?

TK: Cat-tastrofee!

HaHaHa! That was a good one TK. *You're kidding right? It's not really empty?!?*

In case you didn't know- Fin and his Mommy writed a book! If you loves the Blog, you'll love the Book.  Fin and his mommy are pawsome. We reads it, we lovesed it!

We gots this reward from our kitty friends at Katnip Lounge.
Thanks for making us feel loved guys, we love you too.
Now mommy has to answer questions:
1. What would your prefect day consist of?

Shaded sunshine, birdsong, tea, book and a kitty on my lap. (And no blackberry!)

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?
Researching the history of the Cat Blogsphere

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?
Woods, definitely woods. I like the beach, but I'm not fond of the sun. It wouldn't do to ruin my deathly palor.

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?
Not literally, but I talk to my plants, and I touched the tree of my childhood, to thank it for falling away from the house after a big rain.

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?
Both, veggies are the best!

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?
My mother used to swear that her side of the family was releated to Attila the Hun, but no one has ever proved it.

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper?
Both have their place. Eatting is a mechinisim of socializing to me, so if I'm with good company, the food is serving its purpose.

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or water?
Fire. Shi, manonmayakosa, spirit!

10. Do you believe in fairies?
I love the whimsical notions; but I'm too much of a realist to believe, in the spirit that the question is asked. That doesn't mean I can't and don't pretend at playful moments.
