Cupcake: I know it looks like I’m napping, but I’m really watching.
Cupcake: I have my eye on you, Pierre. You’re stealing my snuggles.
Pierre: What? I’m borrowing Catmonkey for a morning snuggle.
We thought today would be a good day to share some photos that were floating around in our “phone uploads” folder but you hadn’t yet seen.
Pierre and Monkey disapprove of your shenanigans.
Ashton likes to use the speedbump-shaped scratcher, but she has learned that flying leaps will make it move. She really turned it into a speedbump with this placement in front of the doorway, didn’t she? And she looks proud of her accomplishment. How many unwary humans do you think she can trip with her speedbump?
Where we live, there are native lizards. This isn’t the kind of lizard that scampers across our window screens, but he took great interest in Cupcake when she wanted a closer look at him during an outing to the pet store. They had to stay on opposite sides of the glass, so their romance is unrequited.
Who does this wall hanging look like? Cupcake says she doesn’t know any kitty who looks like that! Miss Jeanne from Random Felines, who fostered Cupcake when she was a wee kitten, sent it to us, and it is hanging in our kitchen. For those of you with OCD, yes, the nail it hangs from was later moved higher so it doesn’t hang down into the doorway.
Pierre and Newton are holding a meeting on the cedar chest in their respective beds. No girl kitties allowed at this exclusive meeting!
For the Christmas holiday, we participate in a gift exchnage with other cat bloggers called Secret Paws, and we opened our gifts on Christmas morning with the rest of the family. We rceived gifts this year from Buckwheat at Phin, Feather and Fur Gang.
Pierre took charge of the operation.
Pierre: Buckwheat sent us a BOX! This is awesome!
Pierre: Just doing inventory…
Pierre: Catnip sushi! I love sushi!
Pierre: I love sushi a lot.
Pierre: I’m going to pick out my own piece of sushi.
Pierre: Why are you laughing? You’ve never seen a cat eating sushi before?
Cupcake: Stop fooling around, Pierre! The tasty stuff is over here.
Newton: Chicken! I love chicken!
Ashton: I love chicken more! Bring that over here where I’m hiding under the tree.
Cupcake: We got feathers! I can tear these off for sure. They smell wonderful with catnip.
Pierre: Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. That means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re thankful for so you’re ready to tell the humans tomorrow.
Cupcake: Is that the food holiday? I like that one.
Pierre: Yes, it’s the food holiday. Like you don’t treat dinnertime every night like a food holiday. What are you thankful for, Cup?
Cupcake: I’m thankful for being able to go out and make friends everywhere. Especially the baristas who give me whipped cream.
Newton: I’m thankful when Cupcake goes out and she isn’t pouncing on us. Those are the best naps.
Pierre: Newt! That isn’t what I meant by what you’re thankful for.
Newton: Well, it’s true.
Pierre: * sigh * Ashton, what about you? What are you thankful for?
Ashton: I’m thankful for chicken. But tomorrow, I will be thankful for be turkey.
Pierre: We all will.
Pierre: We’re also thankful for every one of you, our readers and friends. Thank you for sharing our laughter and for learning with us. And if your family celebrates it, happy Thanksgiving!
