Monday Morning Mews – Selfie

Hello, furriends – Gypsy here this week with the mews.

Today, I’m sharing a selfie that Motor Mommy and I took recently.

Now, here is my observation on this picture.  Motor Mommy is obviously trying to look  young and cute as attractive as she can. And, if you’ve ever taken a selfie, you know that can sometimes be difficult.

As for me, I would be interested in your opinion as to just what my feelings were at that purrticular moment:  Annoyed? Unhappy? Trying to look ferocious?

Please leave your opinion in the comments.  This should be furry interesting….

Monday Morning Mews: Hard At Work

Happy Monday, readers! It’s Gypsy with today’s mews.

Today, I’m sharing a couple of silly pictures Motor Mommy took of me.  Sometimes, when she’s trying to work at her desk, I find the tightest little spot and s-q-u-e-e-z-e into it.

This makes it a little difficult for Motor Mommy to get any work done. But that’s what kitties do best: help those around us relax.

Let’s see, from that picture we can tell that it’s time to renew my pawrent’s AAA membership, and that Motor Mommy hasn’t torn the sheets off her desk calendar in about a month….

And sometimes, Motor Mommy just gets a little silly right along with me. I love my job!

Monday Morning Mews

Hi, furriends, Gypsy here with this week’s mews.

Today, I thought you’d like to see how my pawrents work together when the time comes for me to have a pawdicure.

Motor Man holds me in his arms, because he and Motor Mommy both know that I will completely relax there.

Motor Mommy comes over with those little nail clippers and gently clips my claws. I’m always a good girl for them.(And she apologizes for “cutting off the top” of Motor Man’s head in this next pic.)

Aren’t I a lucky girl to have pawrents to love me and take such good care of me? I certainly made the right decision when I adopted them.

Monday Morning Mews: In Training

This week’s mews is brought to you by….ME, Gypsy!

I have a huge announcement: I’m in training for a new position in our company.

Miss Gypsy: “Director of Accounting”.  I think it has a nice ring, don’t you?

Motor Mommy says I still need lots more training, though, focusing particularly on finger paw placement.

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.

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 Mew: The Inspector

Motor Mommy loves to find old items to use in the yard. Some time back, she bought an old watering can at a vintage market and had been waiting for a good use for it (other than to water flowers).

I heard her tell Motor Man that she’d seen an idea on Pinterest (whatever THAT is) where someone had taken tiny solar lights (whatever THEY are) and made them look like water flowing from the spout of the watering can.

One day last week, she brought the watering can to the shop, so Motor Man could help her with the project.

I immediately went to work.  My little nose was working double over-time.

What in the world IS this thing?  And where has it been?

Eventually, I decided that it was harmless enough and allowed my pawrents to continue with the project.

Motor Mommy says taking night-time pics is so difficult, but this is the watering can project after it was completed. (I think she’s going to try for a better picture at some point.)

I love being chief inspector at our shop.  Now, what’s our next project?

Monday Morning Mews

Happy Monday, efurryone! It’s Gypsy, bringing you the news this week.

And the news is: I have a brand new scratching post!

Motor Mommy bought it for me recently when she went shopping. Of course, I immediately gave it the ol’ sniff test.

And I’m really trying to get used to it. I certainly don’t want to hurt her feelings.

But, I think I like my old one just fine.

As you can see, it’s sorta “broken in”.

But thanks anyway, Mommy!
