'ear! 'ear!

Helloooo!

NAP, EAT, THINK, PURR, POOP...
DON'T THROW ME FOR A LOOP
I HAVE IT DOWN TO A SCIENCE
ON ME THERE'S RELIANCE
MY EARS WILL LEAD ME TO SNOOP!

This week I'm concentrating on my ears.

Like the British say, "'ear, 'ear!!"

Anyhoo, we can listen to two noises at once! Yes, it does get scrambled sometimes, but having two ears that scan the room, reach out to noises not heard by humans, WE DON'T MISS A THING!

You can tell I'm hearing stuff here cuz my brain wheels are turning as I take it all in and ponder, or maybe ignore, even though my ears are poised at 90 degrees. At 11 years of age, I'm an ear veteran and I've heard it all before. Like here, a real ho-hum. But, maybe, just maybe...you can see I'm trying to decide.



Every once in awhile we hear something out of the ordinary and have to investigate. That's when the fun really begins.

That's right. We hear everything - the good, the bad and the boring - even secrets, but we are everybuddy's best buddy because, you know why?
We never tell!!!

Isn't that right? Unless, of course, we have a blog, then all bets are off...!!

~~~~~~~~

Oh!!! I almost forgot! We've hit the 1,000 mark for comments on my blog! I know, it doesn't look like many each week, but every one counts. Thank you! (I hope that means I get special treats, extra nip and a belly rub!)

Karate Moves!

Hi, folks!

It's no secret that Bridget and I go at it, wrestling, tumbling and trying our bloodthirsty best, one to overcome the other. I always, I mean always get the upper hand, or paw, pushing her down, towering over her and demanding submission.




However, let me be clear, I don't know how this happened, but for the FIRST TIME EVER, the roles were reversed! I found myself at her feet, helpless to defend myself, until I remembered my lessons in cat karate...!!!



Hey, what a kick!!


After all that, we survived and I swore I'll never be at a disadvantage again...but was I really? I think I handled myself very well. My sensei was proud of me, but then told me Bridget had contacted him right after this and begged him to give her lessons.. yeah, we'll see..LOL!!

Have a good week, everybody!

The Perch Pest

Hi, efurrybody!

Monday's come around again and the start of a new week.

The housekeeper turned into a pest over the weekend, though. Bridget was on her perch and our dear slave and minion just couldn't leave her alone.


Bridget's a pretty good sport. She goes along. I would have just given our pet perp a piece of my mind!

Enjoy your week, my friends. Always try to find a sunny spot. If you can't, keep a spare one in your heart.

Lovesies,
Tom

Who Taught Her How to Drive?

Hi, friends!

Honestly, I live day to day, just a fur's-breadth away from disaster!!

The housekeeper simply cannot drive. If it were not for me, she'd be in the living room with cats and house in a pile of rubble and we would be homeless.

As long as I put my paw up to stop her, we're fine, but what if I'm not at my post? What if I'm otherwise engaged, snoozing, or indisposed in my cat box?



Anyway, keep us in mind when your praying to the saint of lost causes.

Thanks bunches!

Desperate Measures

Hello!

What's the password? Meow? You got it!

You're not going to believe this, but I have skills that run along the lines of investigations and resolutions. We won't get into the resolutions of cases since they can be gross, but I am pretty proud of work that I used to do.

What I'm getting at is that I've had to get back into the business since we're getting strapped for cash.

So here's my pitch and what you'll see on billboards nearest you!


What do you think?

If your family needs you to come up with a business for much-needed cash, what do you think you could do?

Wish me luck!

Now...where is my gal Friday?? Oh, right. She's off Mondays...haha!

We wanted to post this link, just in case you haven't seen it already or would just like to go through the experience once again.


The Angel Flight


Love to you all.

Mish-Mash Monday

Hi, kitty friends!

Just this second, I got a wild hair.

Not knowing what I would write this post on, I decided to grab any photo in my ginormous collection and write something off the cuff, or pawcuff..using my wild imagination.

Are you guys game?

Here we go:


These "S" scratchers are a great invention. Do you have one? They are so comfy! If'n I had to choose between a king's throne and this scratcher, the scratcher would win claws down!!

It was invented, I heard, by a dyslexic inventor by the name of Otto Slevich (hence the S) who loved writing his name, but always had trouble with the S. Even after he grew into adulthood, would write it backwards. Well, that troublesome situation inspired this scratcher which is okay with the S either backwards or right-ways..I like it backwards, as you can tell. He loved cats, so it was an easy invention for him and Mr. Slevich grew very rich. He's still getting money for the patent which makes him patently a genius in my book!

Wasn't that fun?

Let me know your favorite scratching appawratus!

Thank you for reading!
