Furrriday!

Standard

It’s here!  The end of the week…..housecleaning day……I get brand new tissue – and I need it this week.  It was an exceptionally messy week of play for me and I may have done more tissue shredding than usual.  Thank heavens my Mom keeps a large supply of the stuff on hand.  It’s almost my FAVORITE toy EVER!

Sam loves newspaper and tissue - go figure!

Tissue and newspaper…..nice and CRINKLY!

Yesterday it was 103 degrees outside and with the humidity factored in, the weather dude said it FELT like 110.  Well, I can vouch for that because I asked Mom if she’d pretty please let me go out on the front porch once – JUST ONCE – and indeed it was a real “scorcher” outside.  The nice crunchy grass looks like it’s been deep fried…..leaves that shouldn’t be falling yet are fainting right out of the trees…..even though Mom watered the gardens this morning they are LIMP and SAD looking this afternoon.  But me?  I asked to go outside to see for myself so good old Mom took me.

Yikes! It’s HOT out here! I’d better stay in the shade or I’ll get french fried feets!

Next week’s going to be mighty interesting around here.  I heard Dad on the phone this afternoon arranging for our driveway to be re-sealed.   I know what that is and I distinctly remember the LAST time this happened and it was noisy ALL DAY LONG with equipment, trucks, strangers in my yard – a real mess.  Of course the driveway looked swell after it was done but still…….talk about noisy! 

 

It’s always something isn’t it?  Just about the time you feel like you can relax – your humans throw another wrench into the works.  Although I suppose putting up with the noise is a small price to pay to live in the lap of luxury like we all do – right?  Hmm??  I’m right now aren’t I ????

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀

HAPPY FURRRRRRRRIDAY!

    • Hi Sundae….I wouldn’t want crunchy tootsies either so I’m gonna be Mr. Inside Guy today. I know you’re glad you aren’t out there in the heat this morning – it’s much nicer on that window seat watching the HEAT go by isn’t it?!?!?!

      Love, Sammy

  1. Enjoy the quiet while you can – and make sure you have plenty of your crinkly paper before next week – it might help you get through the noisy part!

    • Good Morning Miss Linda! Oh thanks for reminding me about extra tissue….I should have a few extra sheets stashed somewhere for comfort purposes – perhaps in the basement where my “quiet hiding spot” is…ought to be pretty noisy on Tuesday!

    • Oh I agree Texas….I make very little noise myself (well, screaming for treats doesn’t count)….yet humans can think of an endless number of very noisy things to do. Just another reason I’m happy to be a cat!

    • It’s gonna be one LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day Tuesday that’s for sure……I need a laptop that fits underneath the basement stairs so I can “keep in touch” in my hidey-hole when necessary!

    • Hi Rumpy…well, barking isn’t an option but I CAN go to my basement hidey hole under the stairs and sleep through the noise. Or try to…..I can borrow Mom’s portable radio and listen to classical music – that makes me get all “dreamy” AND it would cover the noise from the machinery! Sound like a plan?

  3. yep Sammy you are right!

    I gotta tell ya pal, I tried the tissue paper thing and I just don’t “get it”…didn’t thrill me in the least!

    We have been having some good rain the past 2 days, want me to send some your way? That would take care of the driveway problem now wouldn’t it? MOL

    • Cody! You didn’t like the tissue thing? Hmm….OK – here’s something to try – your surprise package has one of my special pieces of “blogaversary celebration” tissue in it – just jammed in the top to keep things from sliding around – have your Mommy take it out, lay it on the ground then put your OTHER surprises UNDER it – I bet you play with the tissue then!!!! Tee Hee

      Rain would solve the problem with the driveway on Tuesday BUT on the other hand, Dad would just reschedule for another day – at least it will all be over on Tuesday. I’ll just have to be PATIENT….(not one of my better qualities!!).

    • Oh Mollie I bet that WOULD be fun. I’m not exactly sure WHERE you live but today when Mom went to the postal center to mail your surprise package I realized that I should have asked her to mail me there WITH your prezzies so I could see where you and Alfie hang out! Darn!

  4. Sammy, I feel a little guilty that while so many of my friends are having to deal with such awful heat this summer, we in southern California have been having very pleasant, sunny days – usually not too hot. I wish I could share it with you!

  5. When the strange men arrive to do the driveway thing, why don’t you teleport over to my house? No strange men allowed here for an entire week. Already told the peep!

    • Hey thanks for the invite Nerissa….I may need to escape that’s for sure. That asphalt stuff is stinky and all that machinery up and down the driveway – well, it’s just a bit disconcerting!!! I’ll let you know if my basement hidey-hole doesn’t provide enough “insulation” from the day’s activities – I appreciate the offer of SANCTUARY! 😉

    • Hi Nellie! I totally agree with you that we shouldn’t be ALONE in times of need (or noise!). Since you’re able to teleport so easily, I’ll give you a jingle on your cell phone and let you know if things are unbearable in my basement hidey-hole and you can zap over and keep me company – how’s that?? Deal? 😉
