Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

Welcome back to my garden!  There is more to being a garden cat than digging in the dirt and managing the plants.   Yes, even more than snoozing and rolling in fresh nip.

  Today I want to talk about building stuff in the garden.  I don't usually do this kind of work.  I sometimes watch my dad, but now that Figaro is here, he handles that part of the garden chores.

Before Figaro got sick he did a lot of work in the garden with dad.  He wanted me to show you all he accomplished the weekend before he went to the v-e-t.  Don't worry, he's doing much better now and hoping to get back outside soon.  Mom and dad have locked him in for now.  Good news is that he is up and about and causing trouble again.

Before Figaro gets to work, he checks in with me on the master plan to be sure I approve. 

Then he checks in with mom to make sure she approves.

Then he gets to work.  Here he is snoopervising building an outdoor area for our scraps of wood for building stuff.

It's important to make sure the electric cord stays plugged in while dad saws stuff.  Figaro does an amazing job!

Figaro snoopervises the emptying of the trailer. Notice how he tucks himself off to the side so he doesn't trip dad.  This is advanced technique my furry friends!

Figaro knows which door belongs to him.  He lets dad use the big door.

Hope you enjoyed seeing how Figaro works hard to compliment my skills in the garden.  I think we make a really cool team. 

Please leave a link so we can see what's up in your garden!

I think you two make a great team! I am glad he is doing better--a team needs to be strong together.

Err. Cory--no socks for Flat Skeezix. He apparently doesn't much like them...

We are put to shame seeing how helpful you all are in your lovely garden. We aren't a bit like that and infact have even heard Mrs H use the word unhelpful when looking at us. We think you are wonderful. Love Darcy and Bing xx

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Hi Jonesie, MEOW!

I am so glad Figaro is feeling better. Yoo have done a pawsome job licking him into shape and teaching him all the gardening skills he needs to be an accomplished assisstant gadener.

I only wish I had been as good training Milo up ~ he's either lazy or pretending to be hopeless or both! Tee hee.

I envy yoo that little cat size door, so yoo can come and go as yoo please. I might hafta speak to dad about making one for us ...

Love Alfie Marshall xx

These are such great photos of both you and Figaro, Jonesie. We are glad Figaro is feeling better and hope he can come out and help again soon - we are sure your dad misses his assistance.

P.S. That little door is so cool!

The Island Cats said...

Wow! Figaro really has that building technique down!! He musta had some experience before! And we're glad he's feeling better!

Eric and Flynn said...

Jonesie, you and Figaro make a great team.
Mum laughs at me because when I come indoors, I always use our cat door even if the human door is open.

Jonesie, you've found the most pawsomest garden help in Figaro. He's very good at helping the dad and snoopervising. We hope he'll be fine again soon.
Kittykisses to all of you!

You make an excellent team and you should have your own show on the lifestyle channel.

The Monkeys said...

You two are the best gardening team ever! We're happy that Figaro is feeling better and hopefully he can join you in the garden soon

Brian said...

That really is very impressive teamwork!

Forever Foster said...

It's not really a surprise that Figaro is becoming such a great help in the garden with such a wonderful mentor to look up to, Jonesie :)

CCL Wendy said...

Jonesie, it was wonderful of you to feature Figaro this week. He has indeed learned a lot from you, and is now a wonderful assistant to you and your Dad!

Get 'em while they're young and train 'em! That's the way to go.

Mariodacat said...

Figaro & you are doing an amazing job. I especially like how you hold board meetings for the two of you to plan.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Jonesie it is great that you have taught Figaro so much so soon! It looks like he is doing a great job with everything! And we are so glad that he is feeling better! We are sending him lots of purrs and prayers to get him back to the garden very soon!

Junior and Orion said...

Wow! With all that hard work, it's no wonder Figaro got sick. He will have to learn to pace himself. We are glad he is better and what an amazing job he has done!

Busby and Raymond said...

Jonesie, you and Figaro make a pawsome team! He is every good at snoopervising the building.

AFSS said...

You and Figaro make a great team. He sure got a lot done before he got sick, we are so happy to hear he is doing better.

Cat said...

You guys are the perfect gardening pair. You should have your own tv show!! It's nice to see someone actually working in the garden and not just me...today Tiny decided to do nothing...can you believe it? The nerve of her leaving all the work to me. I'm bushed...I think I'll go take a(nother) nap. Purrs, Lautrec

Simba said...

Figaro certainly has taken on some advanced stuff. Good for him. I am glad he is feeling better. No fun being sick!

Excellent garden coordination! Checking wif each other and then Mom makes it official. We like the way Figaro uses the kitty door even when the big door is open. Its good ta make sure the Beins see it used...
