Monday Morning Mews: Crafting

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

Sometimes, Motor Mommy likes to celebrate those “National Days”, and last Saturday was National Card Making Day.

So I decided to celebrate right along with her. Let’s see….wonder what I do with this thing called ‘adhesive’?

And look at these little things. I think Motor Mommy calls those “embellishments”.

And, in the end, exactly how did I celebrate the day?

By batting everything I possibly could on the floor.

I AM, after all, a cat…..

Monday Morning Mews: From My Window Seat

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

Today, I’m sharing a recent picture that Motor Mommy snapped of me enjoying the view from my window seat. Not long after I adopted my pawrents, they bought that seat for me, and I love it.  I can see rabbits, squirrels, turtles, birds, geese AND these big creatures from my window.

And, although it flew away before Motor Mommy snapped the picture, there WAS a hummingbird there at the feeder just a few minutes earlier.

I am one lucky kitty girl. What do you see from YOUR window?

Monday Morning Mews

Happy Monday, efurryone!  Sundae –  back with you after a little break last week while we celebrated Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.

Today, I’m sharing pictures Motor Mommy took a couple of weeks ago. She came home one afternoon to find me lounging snoozing on the bed in “The Donna Room”.

We call it that because, when Mommy’s niece, Donna, comes to visit from Texas, that’s her room.

And sometimes, Mommy’s friend, Donna, spends the night when there’s a special weekend event happening in town.

Mommy took these pictures with her cell phone in order to “capture the moment”, so they aren’t quite as sharp as those taken with a camera.

I like to spend time in “The Donna Room” whenever I can.

(Actually. any bed, chair or sofa is fair game when I’m ready for a nap.)

Monday Morning Mews: The Apology

Hello, efurryone. This is Sundae, and today it’s my turn to post.

If you read Motor Mommy’s post last Friday, you know that I’ve been quite a naughty girl recently…..I’ve been biting her on the arm while she’s at the computer.

I really wish I could say what my reason is, but sometimes, it’s difficult for us kitties to put our feelings into words. Yes, I know that I’m doing something wrong when I bite. And I’d like to publicly apologize to Motor Mommy for hurting her.

Several of our readers left comments with ideas about WHY I might be doing that, and some included suggestions on how to break me of the habit.  Ideas included ignoring the bad behavior, swatting me on the nose when I bite (huh?!) and perhaps some calming meds from my vet.

I’m really, really going to try to stop biting my mommy.  I even agreed to pose with her for a selfie.

Okay, I admit it:  judging by my look in this picture, I don’t really appear to be “on board” with a change in my attitude, do I?

I think I have my work cut out for me….

Random Five Friday

It’s been a while since I’ve posted five randoms on Friday, so today’s the day:

1.) Motor Man and I hosted my family reunion last Saturday. My earliest memories of that event were when I was a child, and the family met at my uncle’s farm. We all brought wire coat hangers and roasted hot dogs over an open fire.  Over the years, there have been reunions with more than 70 people in attendance. This year, we had 14. But the weather was perfect, and we all had a great time.

2.) Last night, for the first time ever, I put a cat in time out.  Sundae has bitten me on the arm three times this week – all unprovoked and “breaking the skin” each time. Every time that it’s happened, I’ve been sitting at my computer, not paying any attention to her. Perhaps that’s the problem. I think she knows what she’s doing is wrong, because she immediately runs from the scene.  Last night, when she ran from the room, I closed the door, leaving her in another part of the house from Motor Man and me.  I’m open to suggestions….

3.) I took this picture on our most recent Outer Banks trip to see the wild horses. It wasn’t until I uploaded the pics to the computer that I noticed the neck-scratching taking place.

4.) I’m sharing a sunset picture from earlier in the week. It was at the end of an overcast day, and I had to wait for the sun to clear the clouds. So worth the wait.

5.) I recently purchased a “super size” external hard drive, and Marshall came to transfer all my photos off the computer. (YIKES….the idea of doing this is keeping me awake at night, even though they’re already backed up on another hard drive.) When we connected the hard drive to the computer via USB, we expected it to be assigned a drive letter.  But that didn’t happen. So, unless we can figure this out, I may be returning that hard drive for a more user-friendly one. Searching for solutions online has us even more confused. We aren’t IT folks: just regular people. Again, I’m open to suggestions….

Have a good weekend; looks to be a rainy one for us. At least, we have no family reunion planned.

Monday Morning Mews

Good morning, readers! Sundae here. It’s my turn to post today, but since I’ve led a rather uneventful life recently (and that’s a good thing), I’ve asked Motor Mommy to help me out this morning.   We have quite a few new readers,  so she’s going to share a kitty-related post she wrote some time ago. Enjoy!

Today’s post is inspired by this flag that I bought recently at the shop owned by Marshall and his dad. (Marshall recommended it; he knew I’d like it.)

9 cats one

So I began thinking of some of the cats that have owned me through the years. Believe me, there have been many more than nine.

One of the first cats I remember was Muffin (Muff, for short). Muff was a soft, long-haired muted brown cat. I remember her being very sweet and gentle.  And Mom seemed to like her more than some of my other cats. Sadly, Muff was lying in a pile of leaves in our driveway one day when we came home, and my Mom didn’t see her.  Mom and I were both heartbroken.

Another cat from my childhood was a short-haired white cat, named Lace. One day, probably because I pleaded and begged, Mom agreed that we could take Lace on a car ride with us to my sister’s house, about 20 miles away. Lace didn’t care much for the ride.  She. Was. Distraught. She meowed and paced all over the car, including on top of my Mom’s head – while she was driving. I’m pretty sure that was Lace’s only car trip.

Before Marshall was born, his dad and I had two cats: a gray and white one, named Hot Dog (after Dennis the Menace’s cat), and a black cat named Mr. Poovie. Remember the old Gomer Pyle show? Gomer’s girlfriend was Lou Anne Poovie. One day, we were watching that show, and Gomer was calling after Lou Anne’s dad: “Mr. Poovie! Mr. Poovie!”.  And, sometimes, that’s how you select a cat’s name.

Also before Marshall was born, his dad and I had been to see the movie, Smokey And The Bandit when it was showing in theaters. When we came home, there was a little gray tabby kittten on our front porch. Of course, we named him Bandit, and he was with us for about seven years, including Marshall’s early childhood. (Click to enlarge)

Later, Miss Piggy, who belonged to a neighbor, decided she’d rather live with us. (No, we did NOT name her.) Soon, she presented us with two kittens, Callie and Stormy.

Of course, you know about my late kitty, Beezy, my feline soul mate.

And, our current kitty, this little scamp.

So, you see, I’m more than qualified to have that 9 cats garden flag.

Today’s edit:  Since this post was published on May 24, 2013, Motor Man and I have been adopted by Gypsy.

 And Marshall has three kitties: Snugg, Chessie and Screamer.  Snugg and Chessie are pictured here.

And here’s Chessie and Screamer.

Sundae hopes you’ve enjoyed this little “rerun”, and she’ll try to have something NEW to share for her next Monday Morning Mews.

Monday Morning Mews: The Boxer

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

You may recall, in my last post, I was helping Motor Mommy get ready for company.  Her niece, Donna and great-nephew, Connor, came to visit from Texas.

We had SO much fun while they were here.  I was simply exhausted when their visit came to an end. (Here I am, relaxing on the sofa. Motor Mommy keeps towels on it, because for some reason, she thinks  the fur deposits I leave behind are undesirable.)

Today, I have a video to share. This was taken while our company was visiting. The humans were sitting around one evening, talking and having a good time. And, of course, I couldn’t be left out of all the fun. Motor Man happened to have a zip tie, which we discovered is a great toy.

 

Motor Mommy was a bit slack in helping me with today’s post, so there’s no music included with my video. Purrhaps the song “The Boxer” would have been a nice addition, Mommy?
