Happy Birthday Grete!

Hi!  What did you say? 

It's my Birthday?   I'm 9 years old?  Awesome!

Does that mean I get unlimited walkies and string cheese and chicken and...ball time?


Birthdays are awesome.

Mancat Monday

Hi there!   It's been awhile since I've been able to say hi to everyone.   After some super hot weather, it's been really purrfect this past weekend.  That means I can get some outdoor time.

Since I'm an old guy, mom says if it's too hot or too cold, I must stay inside.  I can't handle extremes.

I know it's not fair, I can't handle extremes, but yet you are being subjected to my extreme cuteness.   

So...mom followed me around to make sure I was safe.   My whole family keeps tabs on me.   Can you see Cecilia keeping a close watch? 

Yup, turn around and Jonesie and Ginger are right there too.

Turn a bit more and there is Figaro.

I am loved.

Mitten Monday

Wowie!  Look at me!  I'm outside!  In the grass and not on the little deck!  Truth is that I'm a little unsure of all this.   So many sounds.   Mom swears she has me secure so I'm going to give it a try.

Mom says if I do alright, I'll get a better harness and my very own leash.  Right now I'm using one of Grete's leashes.

Bennette and Jonesie can't believe they see me outside.  They are sticking pretty close since they think it's some sort of mistake and they may have to watch over me.

Yes, Bennette, it's really me.  Sigh.

Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


Welcome back to my garden.  I hope all of you forgive me since I've not been posting in such a long time.   I am getting older now and I won't go out in the garden until it is sufficiently warm during the day.

Luckily it's been super nice weather and I've resumed a fairly full workload.

I have a surprise to show you!   Mom and dad would never dare to put tender tomatoes and basil in the ground before Memorial Day weekend.  I learned how to get them their treats food earlier...so as you can see we have a nifty new tent to keep them warm.  I helped Dad build it.

You can see below what it looks like when it's opened up during the day.  Ignore that showoff Cecilia.  She thinks exposing her belly is more important than tending the garden.

Dad built this for very cheap.  The plastic pipe cost less than a dollar each.  We already had wood scraps and twine.  The only thing left to buy was a roll of plastic.

So when a smart Mom & Dad and a smart cat like me put our  minds together, magic can happen in the garden!

The only rule we have to follow is to close up our little tent when the temperature drops below 50 degrees.  Mom is hoping we can do this in the fall to extend our growing season.
