Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

Hi there!  What would Tuesday be without a look at my belly floof!  It's been an interesting week.  

  Mom and dad bought an Earth Machine to compost their kitchen stuff, like banana peels and vegetable scraps.  Jonesie was kind of scared of it and she refused to pose with it.  Something about a foreign object in her garden.  I bet she loves it once she finds out compost comes out of it.  See, even I, Ginger the smart and all knowing knows something about the garden and what's good for it.
Grete woofie was a good girl and posed near the composter.  She wouldn't sit right next to it, but she was more interested in her ball than the black plastic thing.  Woofies.
Speaking of Grete...I wanted to let you in on a little known secret.  We have a big yard and Grete...um...uh, you know...it's all one big restroom to her.   Mom and dad came up with a solution on how to deal with unpleasant...surprises.  It can be hard to locate the ::ahem:: evidence with tall grass and so much of it, so mom and dad take out little flags with them when Grete goes outside to do her business.  That way, if they can't get to it right away, they know exactly where it is.  Most importantly, I don't have to watch where I put my paws!

Good idea with the little flags, not that we have woofies. I do my business on the soil of the flower beds and under the trees and take care of it all by myself straightaway.

Floofy tummy is the highlight of Rumblemum's week!

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

Yay for gorgeous belly floof! And we're glad you won't get woofie poop on your paws.

Au and Target said...

haha! I looove those red flags! And your floofy tummy is the cutest.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Wot will happen when the garden is SO full of little poop warning flags that there isn't room for even the smallest paw?

Love Milo xx

Jonesie is right to be cautious ~ noo fings for the garden hafta be introduced SLOWLY ~ otherwise the plants get scairt! Jonesie (my hero) understands this, 'cos she's got green paws.

Love Alfie xx

Those flags are a great idea! So is composting--your garden will love it! Our city now composts, so our human puts ours out weekly, for pick up. It's great for those of us who don't have room for backyard composters!

What a brilliant idea! #1 occasionally has a hard time finding my "souvenirs" too!

Woofs,

That's a great way to keep track of where NOT to tread! mawhawhaw! Mummy says she once saw the "It's Me of the Dog" show where they were suggesting those flags too!
The compost machine is fantastic!

Brian said...

The flags are a good idea, very smart Grete!

Parker said...

Your folks are very smart. Our Daddy should do that with Diamond!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Ginger...mom says she loves seeing your floofy belly!!

And we think your humans are pretty smart to come up with that way to deal with Grete's "leavings." Nothing worse than stepping in something like that!

The Monkeys said...

We're also sure that once Jonesie realizes that compost is great for her garden, she'll want to pose with it!

We love the poop flags! So funny!

Forever Foster said...

Hahhahahahaha! It's like a fossil dig!!!!!

The Whiskeratti said...

Good job, parents! And Ginger, you do have pawsome floof.

Simba said...

I think some cats may still need a bit of time to get used to the composter being there.

Brilliant idea with the red flags!

CCL Wendy said...

Lovely to see you and your floofy tummy again, Ginger! What a great idea about the composter -- and we're sure Jonesie will like it, too, once she gets used to it.

And what a great idea for marking Grete's poo spots! Yes, it's too bad you can't train woofies to use a litter box like kitties.

las794 said...

LOL--great way to deal with doggie landmines!

Cat of Nine Tales said...

Ha, ha! Love the marker flags! Luckily our pups have their own dog yard and they are generally confined inside that. If you go inside, you should watch your step, but DP is on top of the prizes so it never been an issue.

That's a nice composter. We have a smaller one that sits on rollers. To mix the compost your roll the composter like a barrel.

We love the flag idea! It reminds us of a golf tournament, when balls land in the long grass the marshall puts a little flag in to show the player when the ball is.

Purrfect Haven said...

hey - that flag thing is an ace idea - we would bite them too and maybe move them (for a joke). Love Darcy and Bingley xx

Ginger,
Awesome tattle post! Mommy snorted her coffee out her nose seeing the marker flags in the yard.
We think that your Parents were a tiny bit "forward" in not consulting Jonsie about the composter and where to put it. What self-respecting Gardening Cat (or any Cat) likes change?
Awesome belly floof, as always!

Junior and Orion said...

Great belly floof Ginger!!!!

We think our Grandpawrents would love that composter!

Meowm is laughing about the red flags....but it is a good idea!

DailyGs said...

We love that you've flagged the "Fowl" Territory! hahahahaha!

At least you know now that nobuddy will be stepping on a Grete Grenade!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That is an awesome idea about the flags - we think it is a great thing for busy days - that is for sure! And it is cool that you have a composter now - you are going to have a ton of food for the garden!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

That is a PAWesome idea with the flags!

One Cats Nip said...

What a neato idea with the flags. My grandpa though and my uncle they say the doggies are just fertilizing the grass hopefully they dont paint their feets too

meowmeowmans said...

The flags are a GREAT idea!

Derby, Ducky said...

Great idea on flagging the do-do!

Eric and Flynn said...

Those flags are a good idea, just like X marks the spot. Lovely belly Ginger.
