Athena’s Caturday Art with Tyebe

 

Looky, looky….it’s the sun!!  Doesn’t it look warm and inviting.  C’mon Budd….let’s hit the deck a runnin’ and spin around like tops. 

You tell me about it, Tyebe…I’m feelin’ rather tired.  Guess I should’ve stayed in bed instead of chasing you down the hall when everyone was sleeping.

 

Today is Athena’s Artsy Fartsy Day.  Mom says I can be the model..whoopee!  Now, you can go see Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog by clicking on her name or the badge.

Just a moment….there is a small matter I must attend to immediately if not sooner.

Juno, get outta here and stay on your own side of the fence!  The power of my probiotic is evident today. mol

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GRASPING GREEN
SHOKO…..EBONY BLACK

Here I am posing on the counter….I like it here.  This is where my wet food pops up….dad waves his hands and it appears.  He is really very clever and a great one to have around when you’re hungry.


Mom used Lunapic photo editor and the Fairy Effect at 50%.  I think the effect makes me look mysterious.

Shoko is here with her Meezerism of the week.                                                                   

“A mouse in the paw is worth two under the snow.”

Heck, I could give a great meezerism, Shoks.                                                           
“Ummmm…When your mouse is broken its time for another.”

That’s pretty good, eh?

Silly Selfies for Sunday

It’s boring this weekend or it was until mom pulled out a catnip bag.  Wow, I never saw anything like this before.  Shoko and I were sleeping together….I wasn’t jumping on her head like I normally do.  I guess she likes me when I just lie like  dead mouse.  Go figure!                                                     

Then I hurried away to play with the crinkly bag.

You can’t see me!! I’m well hidden.

I can see you so you can see me too but I bet Budd doesn’t know where I am. mol 

We will choose one picture for The Cat On My Head blog to show on their Selfie Sunday blog hop.  Now click on the name or the badge and come join us and view your friends.  Better yet join us and we can chuckle together.

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
MOM…….MAROON

On a sad note, Buddy Bud (Tomcat Commentary by Timmy) left  for the Rainbow Bridge.  Angel Kali is waiting for him as she said she would.  They are together again.  So even as we mourn, Buddy is free and spry once more.  We will never forget you dear friend.  Pop on over to Buddy’s blog and let the family know they’re not alone.  Simply click on the badge of Kali and Buddy.                                                                       

Togetherness on Happy Tyebe Tuesday

Tyebe, leave Geraldine alone. You keep pickin’ on her and she won’t come when you call her. I hate to leave her Shoks, she’s so active.

Budd whatcha doing? This here paper is trying to get away and I need to sit on it.

There must be something making the paper move.  I’ll check Budd. You try to catch me.

I got it Tyebe!! That’s me Budd. You’re too heavy on my paw….get off bro!

I don’t see a thing under there Budd. It must have run off when it saw me climbing under the paper.                                                                                   

MOL…keep trying, you’ll see him. Are you making fun of us Shoks? Well, kinda. There’s nothing there. When Budd jumped on the paper, the paper moved and he thought someone moved him but….NO,…..he moved himself.

We’re going to join in on Comedy Plus and their Happy Tuesday.  Click on the badge and we’ll go over and visit with you.

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GRANITE GREEN
SHOKO…..Midnight BLACK

I thought they’d never leave. This paper feels so good and loud. MOL

 

Now for my Meezerism for the week.

“When you feel upset with life put on a happy face and trip your sister/brother so they fall down.  It feels so good.  Betcha get a laugh out of it. MOL

Shoko’s Selfie Sunday

You’re going to pose for the selfie, Shoko? You bet your peach coloured booties, Tyebe. Where’s Budd? He has a thing for me. What ever do you mean, Shoks?

You’ve seen him do it Tyebe. If, I growl at you for doing something stupid, Budd comes over towards me, using the ole evil eye look. He’s a big guy and he isn’t looking at me with love in his heart. Well, you don’t have to fuss over Budd.

He’s sound asleep.

Good!! Now, it has been awhile since I tried this,

Woops, my ears are elsewhere.

Those ears are high enough! Look, I have white hairs growing out of my ears….like dad! Maybe I’ll have to pull them out like dad does. No, I’ll just leave them. I look debonair.

Last try, my arms are getting tired, not to mention the pressure on my paw when I push down on the camera button.                                                                               

Much better. I look presentable.

Have a great week, friends.

Happy Tyebe Tuesday

MOL….Here we go….  Mom let loose this white mice, see, and  I’m thinkin’ this is probably a relative of Gus.  Gus had certain moves that he repeated.  This was his tell.                                                                     

I can get ready and be prepared for him or have a lousy day thinking a white mouse beat me.                                                                   

Have we got a Gus or a Geraldine there Budd?    I’ll lo…., oh, Gus seems to be a Geraldine.   There we go another female in the house.  Be beware boys we’re growing in population. mol

W What was  that?  Holy frog butt!!  Look at Geraldine run!!  Get her, Tyebe!

Today is a very cool day so we’re not going out.. Think we’ll harass Geraldine some more at the Meezer Bowl.

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GREATER GREEN
SHOKO…..EBONY BLACK

Shoko is ready for her Meezerism of the week.  Take it away big sis.                                                                                

We can all relate to this proverb.  “When in doubt, clean your butt.”

We are joining Happy Tuesday at Comedy Plus.  Come on over with us and view all the other furries.  Click on the name or the badge and be swept away.                                                                       

 

 

I wonder if GingerSnap sees me as his rose in the snow…like in this song.

Oh It’s real mushy! UGH!  Sounds more like mom and dad  MOL

 

 

First February Sunday Selfie

So this is the first day of February and it’s beautiful…..so sunny and pleasant.  We’ve all been outside and enjoyed the sun. Budd came out too but didn’t like the cool air so went back inside very quickly.mol  We need a toque for Budd, mom.  He just can’t stand the cool temperatures.  I’ll get right on it, Tyebe.                                                                             

There we go Tyebe. He seems to like this toque. He’s so handsome. mom. C’mon Budd let’s go outside.

 

We’re joining The Cat On My Head with the Kitties Blue .  This includes GingerSnap…my guy.  *giggle*                                                                     

Come join us at The Cat on my Head blog and let’s see your selfie this week.

I’m sorry there is no meezerism today cause Shoko is sound asleep and I’m not waking her. She’s not a happy kit when she first wakes.  Apparently, Shoko and Einey are the same in this respect.  Nobody goes near them til they’ve eaten. hehe                                                                 

Fun Filled Friday

Another Friday has rolled around.  It was a pretty good week.  No more snow and mild temperature of -5C.  This we can take and actually enjoy.  Mom’s birthday was yesterday so she went grocery shopping with dad. We liked that.  She got us our favourite Fancy Feast wet food and threw in some Friskies for a change in diet.                                                                   

     This week we are joining Feline Friday at Comedy Plus as we usually do unless mom forgets.                                                               

 

First, we must tell you the most exciting news we know and the event is happening today.  Buddy Budd of Tomcat Commentary by Tim turns 20 today.  MY mouse and a half, that is ancient!  His family is throwing him a Birthday Party  over on the family blog, we are sneaking out and heading over after we do the fill ins.  We have whistles  so help yourselves and have a jolly good time at this special celebration.  I am going to be with Einey playing with his toys from Christmas.  Gee, I hope I don’t break any. I’ll be careful.         

Also, Friendly Friday Fill Ins with Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Lorianne of Four Legged Furballs with Ellen stating the first 2 sentences and Lorianne stating the last 2 sentences. Click on the red names of the blogs and go visit.

1. My favorite quote is…….”GOT MILK”……..CAUSE I DON’T LIKE MILK AND YOU CAN KEEP IT!

                                                                         

2. My favorite part of February is….THE LAST DAY…..WHETHER THAT IS THE 27TH OR 28TH.  I’D RATHER BE SUNNING MYSELF ON THE BEACH.

3. A little known fact about me is…..I LIKE WEARING HATS.  SH…..DON’T TELL ANYONE.

                                                                     

4. OWNING CATS……. is the most rewarding experience in the world.

We decided to take mom’s chicken wings to Buddy’s birthday party. Mom used secret herbs on the coating and she used lots of herbs. Yummy!! Notice the white mouse. His name is Gus.                                                                                 

Gus has no ears or tail anymore. His life is a rowdy one. The poor guy has never been the same since I gave him a bath.

Poor guy just dropped his ears and then I bit his tail off. He used to run automatically but after a dose of water, he just quit trying.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GRASS GREEN
MOM…….MAROON

We almost forgot.  This blog hop, Photo Fails, comes around once a month and we love it.  This is our opportunity to show the weird pictures mom takes and then thinks they’ll be lovely….NOT SO MOTHER MAGOO!  Roby Sweet started this unique blog hop and since she left us, Mochas, Mysteries & Meows has carried the tradition onward.                                                                     

This is our entry for the month.

Mom was trying to show me looking at Juno out on her deck but one can’t tell what it is and if she made it bigger I would be outta the picture.

 

May your weekend be relaxed.
