Monday Morning Mews: Critiqued

Happy first Monday in March, efurryone. Sundae here with the Mews.

Without my knowledge (nor permission), Motor Mommy snapped this photo of me last week.

Now, I ask you: doesn’t that look like a sweet kitty, napping on her window seat? Well, I overheard Motor Mommy talking to Motor Man about this picture, and she said it looked like my “rumpus” was up in the air….like I had “highjackers”, whatever that is. I think it’s an old “car” term.

It seems that a kitty can’t even enjoy a comfy nap without being critiqued about her sleeping style….

Oh well, I must remember that they’re just humans and love them in spite of their weaknesses.

Monday Morning Mews: Tech Support

Happy Monday, readers! Sundae here, and it’s my turn to share mews with you this week.

As most of you know, Motor Man builds race engines. And he does lots and lots of research on the computer, looking for ways to increase horsepower in the engines he builds. He has a desktop at the office, but at home, he uses a laptop.

So this weekend, I decided that he needed my help with some of his research.

What’s that?   You say that’s not helping?

Well, from a kitty’s perspective, I’m not sure I know what you mean.

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, readers! Sundae here with this week’s mews.

I have a special video of “moi” to share with you later in the post. But before I get to MY nmews,  I’d like to announce that there’s a birthday in the family today. It’s Motor Mommy’s niece, Barb’s birthday!  And I think I heard Mommy say that they’re going to have lunch together. (If grilled chicken is involved, I sure hope Mommy brings me a tiny taste.)

Happy Birthday, Barb!


And now…. my video.  My pawrents have a huge old roll-top desk, and Mommy’s computer is on it as well as this tiny lamp.  One day not long ago, I decided, for some odd reason, that the lampshade just needed my full attention.


Let me just say that no harm came to the lampshade.  Until that day, Motor Mommy had not seen me even give it a passing glance, and I haven’t noticed it since. (Or HAVE I?)

We kitties are just impossible to understand: I guess that’s just part of our charm.

Monday Morning Mews: My Gift

Hi, efurryone: this is Sundae, and do I have some mnews for you today!

As you may know, I have a kitty seat which rests on the sill of one of the windows in my pawrents’ bedroom. And, last week, Motor Mommy bought me………my very own….bird feeder!

She placed it on a shepherd’s hook right outside MY window.

It didn’t take long for the birds to discover it.

I am having the furry best time watching and chattering at those birdies when they come to feed.

Motor Mommy tried to take a picture of me while some birds were on the feeder, but that didn’t go as she’d hoped.

Needless to say, I am loving all my new entertainment.  Thanks, Motor Mommy! You and Motor Man are the furry best pawrents any kitty could have.

Monday Morning Mews: The Giraffe Shirt

Hi, readers! Sundae here with this week’s mews.

You may recall that Motor Mommy became a huge April, The Giraffe fan last year.  Motor Man even treated her to a trip to Animal Adventure Park in New York in June for her birthday so she could meet April and her family. If you missed her post about their trip, click here.

Motor Mommy is a member of a couple of Facebook groups pertaining to April. Back in November, while shopping at Macy’s, she discovered a holiday shirt with the image of a giraffe placing a star on a Christmas tree.   She bought one and posted a picture of it on one of those FB pages.

Her fellow members just LOVED it. But many of them didn’t have a Macy’s near them (or their Macy’s didn’t have any of the shirts).  And it wasn’t available online.  A couple of the members offered to pay Motor Mommy to buy and send the shirts to them.  So Motor Mommy went to every Macy’s near us and bought the giraffe shirts they had for sale. THEN… she and Motor Man went on a business trip to Indianapolis, and they stopped at several Macy’s stores in West Virginia, Kentucky and Indianpolis to buy those shirts.

I think she probably mailed out about 30 of them all total. After the members began receiving their shirts, they posted pictures of themselves wearing them. So Motor Man took a picture of Motor Mommy wearing her shirt.  AND I got to be in the picture!

That’s all fine and well, and I was quite honored. But, I just have one question: WHY is she not a member of any calico kitty FB groups???   Hmm????

Monday Morning Mews: Special Occasion!

Hi, there, readers! This is Gypsy, wishing you all a Happy New Year.  AND, we are celebrating another special occasion today:

Motor Man’s birthday!

So, not only am I here today, but so is my sisfur, Sundae!

Here is my furry favorite picture of Motor Man and me, taken when I was just a tiny little kitten.

Now, I’ve grown up and become his adviser.  We spend lots of time researching ways to make more horsepower. Here we’re discussing our latest findings on the internet.

And now, heeeere’s Sundae!

Hi, efurryone!  This is Sundae, wishing Motor Man a wonderful birthday!  He’s such a smart man: when I first adopted my pawrents and came to live with them, I cried for several days. Motor Mommy was almost at the end of her rope, but Motor Man just said: “We don’t know how long she’s been living in that little cage. Now she has a whole house to explore and get accustomed to.  She’ll be fine.”  And he was right!  Motor Mommy took this picture of us Christmas Day.  Motor Man was asking me what had my attention out the window.

Along with Motor Mommy and Marshall, we’re all wishing a FURRY Happy Birthday to our Motor Man!  We love you!

Monday Morning Mews: Meowy Christmas!

Hello, efurryone! Sundae here, because it’s my turn to host Monday Morning Mews, but today, our entire family is making an appearance!

Motor Mommy and my step sis-fur, Gypsy.

Yours truly, enjoying Motor Mommy’s lap while she relaxes in the recliner.

And our pawrents, visiting recently with a very special couple.

Today will be a busy day:  Marshall will be visiting at breakfast  time(he gives the best tummy rubs)! Then, our pawrents will be scurrying from one place to another to spend time with other family members. And tonight,  Marshall visits again to exchange gifts.

We hope that all of you have a very merry Christmas Day!

Love, Sundae, Gypsy, Motor Mommy, Motor Man and Marshall
