A Change in Routine

Hi, furriends!

This is the week that gets us all closer to Halloween which is next week, so I'll save creepy, crawly images until then...

I've noticed that Bridget and I have gotten more clingy when it comes to catmom and housekeep Julie..I ask for my back to be rubbed and ears scratched and chest fur combed and Bridget follows her around like a puppy dog, but meowing..Here she is torturing"helping" repot our lipstick plant.





You have to see the plant and its "lipsticks." Kinda cool!


We miss our human since she's out working the salt mines, so she says, even though only part-time. Her not being here takes a big chunk out of our routine. Oh, sure, we sleep a lot, look out the window and do all kinds of things, Penny included, but when it's lunch time, there's no opening of the fridge, sounds of plates on the counter or the smell of our food.

Finally, she gets home and we greet her at the door. I think she's as happy to see us as we are to see her! We immediately get treats and a promise of a good, hearty dinner an hour or so later.

We know her absence is only temporary. She thanks us for being patient, hinting at special kitty stuff for us that Santa Claws will bring. 

That's good enough for us, plus the extra attention!

Have a good week ahead!

~Tom, Bridget & Penny xoxoxo

Never saw a plant like that but I am not much on plants. It can be tough for cats to fend for themselves even part of a day but they should get used to the routine, right? Maybe not!

Sorry your mom has to leave you for part of the day. You are such cuties, I am sure she hates to leave you at all. I have a Bridget too. I named mine after my Grandmother.

I'll bet y'all are such wonderful greeters!

Tom, I had to go into the office twice last week, and I missed the cats SO MUCH!
They missed me too, because I am their favorite human cat bed.

Sounds like the housekeeper being gone part of the day will all be worth it in the long run. :)

Maybe she will be home forever with you all soon wouldn't that be nice. We always loved when Dad came home from those mines and we could all have a nice dinner and pile on the couch till treat time

Aww, we love that you two are so good about greeting the Housekeeper when she arrives home. That is so special for you all!

It is hard when the Housekeeper deserts you, but I know she appreciates it when you are there to welcome her home.
