Monday Morning Mews: Crinkling And Purring

Hi, readers. Gypsy here – and today it’s my turn to post.

One of the toys I have in our my office is a “crinkle tunnel”.  It is SO cool; I really love the sound it makes. It rattles like paper.

Motor Mommy took this picture of me in it. Oh, and you can see my little springy toys too. They’re really fun to play with; they’re so light, they practically fly around even if I barely touch them with my paw.

BUT, Motor Mommy also took a very short video of me…you can hear the sound of my crinkle tunnel.  Listen carefully:


Did you hear me purring my motor running?   But of course: that’s ’cause I am a Motor Kitty!

Monday Morning Mews

Happy Monday, readers! Gypsy here with a crazy picture for you.

Isn’t that hilarious?

Here’s how it happened:  Motor Mommy’s cell phone was lying on her desk (face up).  I had placed my paw on it, and she thought that was sooooo cute.  She reached over and turned on her phone, clicked on the camera icon, and right that second, I moved my paw.

But she did manage to get a picture of my whiskers…and my chin…and my mouth… and my nose leather! Did you know that kitties have nose leather? To quote from the internet: “the naked skin around a cat’s nostrils is called “nose leather.” And the color of our nose leather is directly related to the color of our coat.

Well, that’s it for today. This has been Gypsy, “up close and personal”, with today’s mews. Purrhaps next time, I can bring you another interesting kitty fact.

Monday Morning Mews: The Game

It’s Monday and heeeeere’s…..Gypsy!

Hi, readers!  Motor Mommy and I recently discovered a new game at the office.

I was on the tippy top of the file cabinet, so Motor Mommy stooped down really low and aimed the camera up at me.

She seemed to think it was a lot of fun.

So I obliged.

Motor Man and I like it when Motor Mommy is happy and having fun.

Monday Morning Mews

Good morning!  This is Gypsy, and I’m bringing you the mews today.

As you may know, I am a shop kitty.  Well, actually,  I am an office kitty AT my pawrents’ shop.  I’m not allowed IN the shop: too many dangers for a kitty there.

Not long after I adopted my pawrents four years ago, Motor Mommy bought me a kitty bed.  And she’s made sure that I have had one ever since.  Several months ago, she bought me a brand new pretty blue one.

Which I promptly ignored.

Weeks passed, months passed.  And I refused to even LOOK at that bed, even though it was exactly like my old one- other than the color.

But Mommy knows how kitties are,  so she wasn’t too upset. After all, I still had a bed. It just looked a little……loved.  In the past couple of weeks, though, I stopped sleeping in my old bed, and instead, began sleeping on a pair of Motor Man’s work jeans that were lying on a desk.

My pawrents knew that couldn’t be very comfy for me, so Mommy moved the new blue kitty bed to the desk beside the jeans.

And, wouldn’t you just know it?

I discovered that I LOVE my blue bed!

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.
