Society of Feline Gardeners-Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie


Don't worry kitties.  Grete is on patrol with her squeaky ball to make sure that no introoders invade our meeting today.  I know, she looks like she is playing, but don't be fooled.  Grete is always on duty.

With fall here, the leaves are starting to come off the trees.  I like it when it's dry outside, but I don't like the feel of wet leaves under my paws.  It's slimy.

The sedum that was barely pink in late summer is now almost burgundy.  It's fun to watch it change color.

Yeah Grete, dad has been neglecting the grass.  It makes a better doggie bed when it gets long.

Well my furriends, enough hanging out.  I got work to do.  If you want to join me, that would be awesome.

Tuesday with Ellie

Sometimes I forget to put my tongue back in my mouth.

For some reason, this makes my mom act all goofy.

Mitten Monday

Do you know how hard it is to get this blue blankie away from Figaro and Bennette?

It's mine now!

Society of Feline Gardeners-Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie


I had a pretty good week in the garden.  My mom and dad are still slacking but that doesn't mean I can't stay busy and help them out.  What would they do without me to keep the garden under semi-control?  The weather wasn't too bad and we had a few sunbeams mixed in with the rain. 

The grass is starting to grow again so the yard is a bit messy right now.  Dad said he won't mow for another couple of weeks so that means lots of yummy grass to nibble.

There are still raspberries growing.  Mom keeps eating them.  There are not very many and the ones that ripen are not nearly as flavorful as the ones that grew earlier this summer.  Mom thanks me for each and every one of them.  She said she appreciates everything I grow for her.

I could sure use Grete woofie's where is she? in the woods playing with her squeaky ball.  Do you know that she chases squirrels with the squeaky ball in her mouth? She squeaks the ball at the squirrels instead of barking at them!  It makes me purr since Grete is so silly.  Mom says she doesn't want to think what would happen if Grete didn't have the ball in her mouth.  The squirrels are safer as long as my woofie sister has her ball.

Ah of the last tomatoes of the year.

Tuesday with Cory and Nigel

Mom says she has a hard time photographing us inside the house in the fall and winter.  With our black furs and mom refusing to use a flash inside the house, we have to suffer a kazillion outtakes while mom keeps trying. 

Nice try mom.  

We are not really in the mood to get our photos taken today.  We learned that our good furriend Parker was diagnosed with cancer.  Please join us in purring for her and her family.

ManCat Monday

Guess what?  I heard that sweet little miss Truffle came by to check up on me! 

Wow!  A cute little sweetheart like that checking up on big ol' me?  Seems just yesterday my mom thought I was a girl ::rolls eyes:: and now that the world knows the truth about my mancatliness...I now have sweet young things checking in on me and my handsomeness!

Uh...what's that you say Ellie?   Oh, Truffle was worried because I was at the vet and had issues with ::whispers:: constipation?

So here's the story.  I had to stay at that vet for 3 whole days until they knocked me out and um...cleaned me out.  Ever since I've been home mom gives me medication twice a day.  I like it because it's from a pharmacy that makes medicines for kitties that taste like chicken juice!  Plus mom slips Miralax in my food too.  It's working because mom keeps a watch on what comes out of me and she seems quite pleased.

Yeah, I know.  Mom's are weird.

Ellie, are you sure Truffle doesn't think I'm handsome?

Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


My furriends!  Although it's been pouring down rain here this past week, I did manage to get in one fantastic day of sunshine and dry weather in the garden last Saturday.  I had previously given up on my garden, but found that there were still plenty of things still growing and needing my attention.  I also had to remind mom that she can't just pack it in for the fall/winter.  There is still stuff to do!

Pears are falling to the ground and they need rescuing!

We still have tomatoes clinging to life.

The sedum that was just barely pink a few weeks ago is now deep pink.

The happy dahlia reminds us of a sunbeam!

These are berries in our devil's walking cane tree.  There are pigeons who come to our tree every fall to eat these berries.  They are spooky birdies since whenever mom or dad gets too close they fly away and stop eating.  That makes us feel bad so we watch from a distance so they can eat all they want.

I know...I and dad need to pick up these pears.  They are EVERYWHERE!

You didn't think I'd end this garden post in October without a shot of my pretty 'tocks, did you?   A classic pose...with garden leaf!

Enjoy your gardens my furriends!
