How Our Kitties Are “Surviving” Winter

You may have been wondering just how the Motor Kitties are doing.

Well, Gypsy continues to adore “her” Motor Man. I just wish she could relax a little. And, no, he wasn’t asleep, just taking a short break from making horsepower.

Sundae is very thankful to be an indoor kitty with a nice soft, cushy bed, which just happens to be placed directly over a heat vent.

And, as for Sibs, Marshall’s kitty, could she possibly BE any cuter if she tried? Speaking of warm, cushy spots: her favorite is on a sherpa throw.

When Marshall sent me the next picture, his text read: “Gonna email Kellogg’s…somethn rotten in this most recent box…”.

So that’s how our kitties are staying occupied during this cold, rainy weather.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all kitties (and pups) could be safe and warm in loving homes?

Break Time

Hi, efurryone: Sundae here.

And Gypsy, too!

We’re interrupting our hard work rest time to let you know that Motor Mommy is taking a little break from blogging next week.

But, “These Days” will return the following Monday, so stay tuned!

Friday’s Feature: Felines

Our kitties, as well as Marshall’s, have been especially photogenic recently. So today seemed like a good day to share some feline photos.

Sundae has become quite the lap kitty, especially in the evenings. That’s my time to relax in the recliner with the newspaper. A kitty in your lap while reading the paper can be quite a challenge, but we manage.

Meanwhile, shop kitty, Gypsy, is perfecting her position as incoming package inspector. Purrhaps she needs a more stimulating job?

Marshall shared a couple of photos of his kitties with me this week. This is Sibyl, being cute while showing off her unique coloring.

And her “aunt and uncle”, Chessie and Snugg, enjoying a golden hour sun puddle.

Programming note: there isn’t a blog post scheduled for Monday. Have a great first weekend in November and tune in again next Wednesday.

Just Kitties

It’s been a while since any of the kitties have been featured here on These Days. And apparently, their little feelings have been hurt. So today, it’s all about the kitties:

One day last week, Motor Man had gotten home before I did. When I walked in, this was the cozy scene:

And Gypsy, enjoying a bag …

…as only a kitty can.

Marshall often shares pictures with me of his three kitties. He said he caught Chessie right in the middle of a good “scratching session”:

This is his kitty, Snugg, who obviously knows when his picture is being taken:

And Screamer, who is also a bit of a “ham”:

Hopefully, the kitties will be happy now with a little time in the spotlight. And I must say that I enjoy posting about them much more than…..(eek) snakes.

Monday Morning Mews: The Winners

Hi, readers, it’s Sundae with this week’s mews.

Today, I really have special NEWS to share: Motor Mommy asked for my help in announcing the winners of her Charlie Brown Christmas tree painted rock contest.

She decided that, rather than just give away ONE rock, she would have Motor Man draw a winner from the list of bloggers who asked to be entered in the contest and another one from the list of non-bloggers. But first, she put all the slips of paper with names on the floor by the rocks, so we could have a photo-shoot with moi.

The blogger whose name was drawn is Cindy, the author of Mama’s Empty Nest. And the non-blogger is Joyce F . Motor Mommy wanted me to let you know that your rocks will be sent out to you in the next couple of days.

Concats to the winners!  Now, wasn’t that fun? We should do it again soon!

Monday Morning Mews – Selfie Edition

Happy Monday, efurryone! It’s Sundae, reporting today’s mews, and I have an exciting announcement.

I have been practicing selfies!  These were taken one evening last week when I had joined Motor Mommy in her recliner.  We sometimes have a little “snuggle time” there at the end of the day.

This was my first one, and as you can tell, I needed more practice. I cut off my ear! Obviously, that just won’t do. (Can you see Motor Mommy in the background?)

This was my next try. I decided to include Mommy in this one, too:

I was smiling in that one, but Mommy wasn’t, so I had to take one more.

There, that’s much better. I think I could get into this “selfie craze”.  Wonder if Mommy would buy me one of those selfie sticks…?

Monday Morning Mews

Greetings, efurryone! Sundae here with the mews today.

 

You may recall that, a couple of weeks ago, my step-sisfur, Gypsy, was featured in an interview on the blog Piglove, written by our new buddy, Bacon. Well, Bacon also offered me that same opportunity, and my interview appeared on last week’s Spotlight Thursday, which you can read here.

Don’t worry: Gypsy and I have agreed not to let the fame go to our respective heads. We’ll still be the same down-to-earth-girls you’ve come to know and love.

Thanks, again, Bacon!
