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 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.

Happy 19th Birthday Madison!

Oh my goodness!   It's my birthday!  I'm 19!

Mom already started singing to me...good thing I'm deaf.  Something about "Birthday Eve" on Tuesday night, but as of Wednesday it's the real thing.   Did you know that of all us kitties here I'm the only one who has a real birthday...not a made up one or a guesstimate.   The real thing.

I want a big party, but at my age I can't handle too many niptinis.

Happy Mothers Day and Happy Birthday Ellie!

What?  You almost forgot my Birthday?  Me?  The Momma?  The center of it all?

You know what this means?  And endless supply of fresh leafy greens from the garden and your undivided attention. All day long!
