Sunday Selfie while Cleaning.

Wow, the Sunday Selfies are here again. So we are clambering over to The Cat On My Head’s blog to see what they have to say and then one of us will be chosen to pose for the Selfie on their blog.  The Cat On My Head has had some problems earlier so we’ll wait to see if we can hook up later.                                                                                                                                         

We couldn’t decide who would do a selfie so we both did one each.

                                                                   

First up is Tyebe in the basket having a bath.

Here I am in the basket having a bath.                                                     

             Do you get the idea maybe it’s sticky in the basket and we must clean up after stepping in it?  mol

Have a happy Sunday.

Shoko at Sunday Selfies

MOL. MOL…..look at Shoko!  She’s sound asleep and thrown caution to the wind.                                                     
She’s forgotten we even exist. Shall we leap on her Budd? Naw, she looks so happy. Let’s play it cool.

It’s Selfie Sunday over at The Cat On My Head blog. Let’s zip over there and leave Shoko’s relaxed selfie.  Shoko will be surprised we did.

Now, over to Shoko for our odd Meezer family’s Pronouns….whoops I mean Proverbs.

“A cat was created when the tiger sneezed.”


TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GRAND GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK

Sunday Selfies……the last for 2018

Howdy folks,                                                                 Here we are at the end of 2018.  It’s been a year of many changes for me.  Kali, my best friend, left for the Rainbow Bridge in February.  We were all crushed and so unhappy for months.  I no longer had my friend to give a bad time or laugh with over the silly things mom does.  In May mom brought a rat home to live with us.                                                    
Man, did she stink!  P. U.  Furthermore she couldn’t do anything fun.  She was too small and couldn’t even run that far without crashing and falling asleep.                                                             
She was so proud of herself for climbing the cat pole.  A simple task for me.

I sat her down and explained how she should act towards me, “You only have to bow once, Tyebe.”                                                                       
“Oh, there’s a fly! Whatever, Shoko….talk later.” She just didn’t understand the respect I deserved. What a ding dong.
In August, this strange lookin’ furry guy was fascinated with Fort Meezer.  He would sit on the mattress under the bench and watch Tyebe playing.  Some might even say a dirty ole man but he turned out to want the best for Tyebe and would alert mom if Tyebe was straying.                                                                
In September he started coming in the house for some supper.  Finally, he moved in and never looked back.
So my home environment has drastically changed. I am slowly getting used to the changes. These two have no respect for their elders but I’ll pound it into them.
It’s time for a selfie.  The last Sunday Selfie of the year and our host once again is the ever popular, The Cat On My Head.                                                    
Simply click on the name The Cat on My Head and you can visit your friends.

This is my selfie before going out in the wet snow. I think the pose is perfect.  Too bad I cut off part of my shower cap.

Sunday Selfie with Shoko

Today is a selfie day and I intend on looking nonchalant as I take my selfie.  Before I get too far ahead please take a gander at The Cat On My Head and have a chuckle over the anipals posing for the selfies they took.  Some of them are quite amusing.  Click on the blog name for some selfie action.                                                          

Mom has the fountain plugged in for the summer and this water is purified. It’s really tasty.                                                           I shall grab some water and snap my selfie.  This is so easy, Tyebe could do it.                                                         

I step on the remote and bingo….a *gag* *sputter* picture of me.  Cwap!!  This water is cold as a toad’s butt and it’s all over my face.  Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea.

Have a restful Sunday my friends.                                                                   

A Sunday Selfie with Tyeebe

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
MOM…..RED

Tyeebe get outta my face!   See me….wooohooo *thunders down the hall*                                                                          

Cwap!!  How long does this stupid behaviour go on, Mom?  A few more months, Shoko.  Months??  I was never this bad.  Tyeebe scratches and bites like all the time.  I know, but so did you No, that’s hard to believe.  You see my gardening gloves?  Ya.  I used to wear those while watching TV or sitting anywhere near you.  You drew blood every time you were on my lap.              

Me??    It’s all part of growing up, Shoko.  So be patient with Tyeebe, she’ll outgrow it.                                                                          Don’t even think about biting my tail, Tyeebe.  I got your number. 

Today is The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie.  You can handle it Tyeebe.  OK, I’s can do this, no problem…..this thing is a remote, right?  Yep.                                                          

Sorry, I’s was distracted.

                                                                                  Seems I’s still distracted. This is hard!

                                                                  I’s got it!!  Oops, forgot the selfie.  I’s seem to be very forgit-itful. mol *hick*                                                                         There I’s looks like an angel. mol *hick*

Sunday Selfie with Shoko

MOL, into the basement we went….just to be alone.  I knew it was selfie Sunday and I had a quick bath before we went downstairs.

This is where I bring the live mice I catch. Here we play until I get hungry.

C’mon mom, hurry up….I think I hear someone in the basement.                                                           

It’s ok….it’s just the heat coming on.                                                          
Egads, someone is a real lead foot in the house.  It must be dad, Kali was sleeping when we left.

I’m going to take my selfie now.  Are you ready? *click*
