Tyebe Tuesday December 11

It’s getting closer to Christmas.  Two weeks today and we’ll be eating turkey and playing with our toys.  Hopefully a few treats too.  How many of you said, “No!” and looked on the calendar?                                                             
Well, these ears have to go. There’s no way I’m wearing these again. Perhaps dad would like to keep them.
I adjusted the new ornament mom put on the tree.

Let’s put it where I can get at it more easily.

Much better, I can bat it anywhere from the tent.                                                                       
My work here is done for the day.

Thankful Thursday with Ornaments

Today is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home.  Join in the blog hop why don’tcha?  Just hit the red letters with your mousie and you’ll be visiting.                                                                         
Today mom tried to decorate the livingroom.  I helped.  She put the greenery on the mantel.  I wanted to put my nanner on the mantel but slipped on the lights.  Oh dear!  Everything ended up on top of me on the floor.  So that didn’t help.  I tried again but with the same results.  Mom was getting a little ticked and I was getting tired.  Time to move on.
I examined the box where the tree lives for any parts that had fallen off.  Looks good dad…it’s a go….no pieces of the tree are stuck in the box.

The base had to be examined for any breakage, spider webs and other vermin.   Once again I helped.  I supervised the light inside the base, no spider or webs.  All other vermin had cleared out.  Check….ready for the tree.

I am so thankful that mom moved this tree indoors and is dressing it up.  What fun!!  Budd and Shoko like it too but don’t seem so excited.
I want to hug this tree….it’s beautiful.                                                                 C’mon let me hug you…..you big green trapeze.
Can you bring my dinner over here and I’ll share it with Mr. Tree.                                                              Then I’ll jump up and down on the branches and see if I bounce.

 

Photo Fails for November

It’s time for Photo Fails.  Once a month we can post our fails for others amusement.  Roby Sweet from The Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles started Photo Fails but has, unfortunately, left us so Melissa Lapierre of  Mochas Mysteries and Meows will continue this witty event.                                                                   
Angel Kali was a great one for leaving the picture.  Once everything was in focus she was on her way elsewhere                                                     
This would have been so cute with Kali sitting beside the flowers but the best-laid plans…

We tried these Travelling Sunglasses from Angel Phoebe for many pictures. Time after time Shoko would not tolerate them. Here she looks like she’s been on a nip toot.

What can I say? The song “I Like Big Butts’ comes to mind. lol
Tyebe was sitting pretty in front of the Tiffany Lamp (fake) and all of a sudden she decided to turn the light on.
She worked and worked at it until she pulled the chain and the light went on. Isn’t she clever?                                                                  

Thankful Thursday

What a mild day for November 28th.  It was 6C above today.  Normally it’s about -10C.  We’s lucky little furries.  We ran around and played this afternoon.  Mom didn’t get photos cause she was too slow. mol *hic*

Today is a good day to be Thankful what with mild weather and our friends in the blogosphere.  Where would we be without cha?

I moved when mom got in close.  How would you like me to shove a camera up your nose?
Brian’s Home is putting on the blog hop and you just MUST go and visit.
Just tell them Tyebe sent you and visit with your friends.
As I was saying I am very thankful that our friends visit us and partake of the nip.  We love to chatter and chattering to friends is always a fun way to spend time.  Isn’t that right Budd?  Budd?  What are you doing?

What happened to your ceegar, Budd?
Looks like you got carried away chewing on it.                                                            
Looks like your ceegar has a hole in it Budd. It does Tyebe. It’s ruined. What will mom say? The stuffing is all over the floor in the livingroom. Don’t ya worry bout it, Budd. Mom seems to understand these things happen. There is a good way to look at this. What way is that? Christmas is coming and you can ask Santa for a new ceegar. Is there really a Santa Paws? That’s what Shokos says. She’s been around many years so she should know. I’ll send Santa a letter and ask for a new Yeowy ceegar.
Have a super Thursday everyone.  Be thankful today too.
