Mes thinks that is TOTALLY pawsome. Especially since Sheila (the Sheep) is a ballon pilot and will bes taking the balloon everywhere!

They even was at a street pawty and telled everybody about Joe and Smoke.



They had been out and about and pretty much had the whole town blanketed in signs and that meant wes could concentrate on the Ballon Race!

Thoughtful Tuesday!

Mes has been thinking about us cats and mes come up with some great stuff!!!
The QUESTION is at the top of the picture and the answer is after 
(gosh mes misses the slideshow widget in Wordpress)


 Cats rule, but not by much! There are about 105.6 million cats compared to about 91.3 million dogs in the US and Canada.
Us cats live about 14-16 years so plan on taking care of us for a LONG time!




Us cats has floating collar bones, that means our heads is about the largest part of our bodies (though our tummies can get bigger). So, if our head fits through a tight space, usually the rest of us will too!! Ask Mommy about the sun roof in the car.....





b-810 years!
Wes catnaps about 12 to 16 hours a day! Like peoples we has 3 different types of sleep and during REM sleep, yous can see our whiskers twitch, or ears and eyes and legs move!!!!



 

Like dogs, chocolate is toxic to us cats!!!
It can cause heart problems, increase blood pressure, and cause seizures! 
Mes sticking to cat treats (right now mt purrsonal favorite is freeze dried salmon!)








Just like peoples and dogs and horses, wes can bes lefties or righties (mes a rightie)
Some research peoples watched us and which paw wes reached for our food (or toys) with!
About half (50%) reached with their right, 40% with their left and 10% is anbidexterous!!!




The LAST Question!!!


Nope! Meowing is what we use to talks to humans. We talks to each other with purrs, hisses, screeches and shrieking!!! We also use body language, and sent things and wes even been known to bes like our wild relatives and scratch wood (Mes prefers sofas.....)

And those are my thoughts for the day. Does yous have a cat fact mes did not talks about that yous would like to share? Inquiring minds like to knows!!!

 Mommy has mad a zillion pin cushions (ahem...only 5). 
This one is supposed to bes of me!

Easy Selfie Sunday and Babies!

First off, mes had trouble getting out of bed this morning.


When Mommy gotted up, mes stayed in bed. 
Mommy comed back in the bedroom at least ellebnty billion times because she wanted to makes the bed before she went to buys my cat food and litter.
She finally left. 


This is what mes was doing when she gotted back.

OH! OH! OH!!
Mommy saw what mes saw yesterday!!!


If yous looks closely there is 2 little heads in there! 


Their Mommy was watching my Mommy while my Mommy was watching for their little heads to pop over the side of the nest.
So far, they is actually furry quiet. Mommy and Daddy has been flying back and forth all day and keeping mes awake watching all the action!
(Which is why mes did NOT want to gets up this morning).

Tuesday Mewsings

Kitten
As yous guys knows, mes is a senior cat. Mes has different needs from a younger cat. 

Senior Cat
Mes wanted to shares some things about us oldsters

Mommy gives mes soft and warm spots. 
Mes used to prefers to sleeps on the floor, but now, if mes sleeps there, mes gets awfully sore. Mommy has nice soft warm spots made up for mes in all kinds of places. Besides my heated cubby (which needs to be replaced before winter). Mes has a heated blanket on the sofa, an cuddly bed on the bed (thanks yous Speedy) and a fuzzy soft furry blanket under the bed. There is a soft flat furry bed under the cat tree, and a box on its side with a blanket inside, inside the closet. Yes...mes sometimes does sleeps on the floor--STILL, but now that Mommy has put some flat warm blankets on the floor, mes prefers to sleeps on them.

Mommy gives mes a lift. 
Even though mes can't see as good as mes used to, mes still likes to sit on the top of the cat tree and looks out the window, but mes can't gets up there without help. Mommy puts a board from the tree to the sofa so mes can gets there by myself when she is not home. And sometimes, Mommy knows mes wants up-- to some places (like the counter and she lifts mes up and down.

Mommy is gentle with mes. 
When mes was young, mes could jump from the floor to the top of the fridge and then back down without any problems.  Now mes old, mes hurts, mes sometimes mes has trouble jumping from the floor to the sofa and back down. When me did bad things before, Mes might get pushed off of a lap, but now, Mommy knows this hurts and she is furry careful with mes. Mommy picks me up and puts me down gently as sometimes just landing on the floor from the sofa can hurts.

Mommy enjoys every minute with me.
Me is a well-cared-for cat and mes has lived into my late teens and my Merlin lived even longer! Our humans did not distance themselves because they was thinking we might die soon and did not want to gets hurt from us dying, they KNOWS everything will die (eventually) and has loved us lots and lots, as long as we’s alive. If yous has fears around death, please work on those so that yous can loves your cat until the furry end. Wes loves yous unconditionally.

If yous is a senior, what does your Mommy and Daddy does special? 

Kisses 
Nellie
