Furrrrrriday Round-up

Standard

Happy Friday!  It’s been a most interesting week around here……not that there’s been any particular excitement, but it was just kind of busy.  I was, as always, a BIG HELP.

My Mom had to hold down the fort (aka house) while my Dad prepared for the annual inspection of the airplane.  Dad likes to play mechanic assist the maintenance guys who do the inspection by removing panels, etc. ahead of time so the maintenance guys can do their thing more quickly!  Then Dad swears a lot  calmly puts everything back together afterwards, thereby saving a few bucks.  The inspection went perfectly (of course). 

Stevie the “yard cat” and Freddy the Frog are getting pretty chummy apparently.  There are many theories being tossed about as to WHAT precisely their relationship consists of……hunting buddies, some kind of funky romantic thing, total coincidence – but the fact remains, they are quite often found TOGETHER on the front porch in the morning in the dark.  This morning Mom found them out there AGAIN.  She didn’t bother with taking a photo – you know this “dynamic duo” by now – but they WERE together again when she put some food out there for Stevie this morning.  (WINK WINK)

On a sadder note, I lost a very sweet little buddy of mine this week.  Bingo from Hutch A Good Life went over the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly.  If you don’t know the boys from Hutch A Good Life, let me say they are my first encounter with guinea pigs and they are totally adorable and so much fun to read about.  Anyway, my kitty heart goes out to Bingo’s other brothers and their Mom.  If you don’t know them, you should stop by.

Today is housecleaning day as you all know by now – or “Monster Out Of The Closet” day as I personally call it.  That means a lot of shuffling around as I stay clear of all that flurry of activity……I’m doing MY part in the effort though – taking care of my tissue pile and my toy box.

 

Sam's Wagon

See? Nice and neat….! Well…sort of…..

Sam loves newspaper and tissue - go figure!

Goodbye to the old tissue pile – every Friday I get FRESH tissue!

 

Other than that, my Mom is planning a visit up to West Virginia to see my Auntie Carol and her two doggie children, Mollye and Toby.  She’s only staying for the day – it’s a two hour drive – but you’d think she’s going for a month!  There’s a shopping bag in Mom’s studio that’s starting to fill up with “stuff” to take….I’ll have to keep an eye on it – don’t want any of MY things accidentally winding up in Mollye and Toby’s toy box by accident!

Aunt Carol, and Cousins Mollye & Toby!

Toby is sitting on Aunt Carol’s shoulder and that’s Mollye the “lap dog” in Carol’s arms…..

That’s about it gang………I’d better get on the move……….Mom’s starting to dust down in the family room so it won’t be long before THE NOISE starts up.  Better find a quiet spot – like the BASEMENT – while I can!

Happy Furrrrrrrrrrrrrrriday to you! 😀 😀

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  1. Happy Furrriday, Sammy! I keep forgetting to tell you that Motor Mommy put down a sheet of yellow tissue paper for me the other day. Although I’m not as experienced as you, I’m learning to have some fun with it. I think she’s going to have to replace it soon: it’s starting to show wear.
    Have fun today…once that monster’s back in the closet, and you have fresh tissue!
    Love, Sundae

    • Hi Sundae! I’m glad you had some fun with the tissue – it DOES wear out quickly doesn’t it?! Once you hear that “shredding” sound, it’s tough to resist doing it over and over again….that’s why Mom replaces my tissue pile on cleaning day – it’s pretty “well worn” by then!!!

      Love, Sammy

    • Hi Clowie….well, it’s the least I can do – I carry them all over the house during the week so on cleaning day I put them all back again like a good boy!

    • Hi Mollie! My Mommy was so excited to see that when you sent the prezzies to the boys at Hutch A Good Life you included one of the notecards she made for you!! I know they are sad right now because Bingo is over the Bridge but no doubt those alfalfa treats and their new “pin-up girl” will cheer them up!

      Happy Friday!

  3. Sounds like a busy time around your house – we are getting ready for my mom to come visit today, so we have been pretty busy too! I am getting ready to take out that monster from the closet (or garage, in my case), so I will just send you hugs for now…Linda

  4. Sammy, first I want to say I am so sorry about your friend Hutch. We just lost our friend Zac and are so sad. It is always hard to lose a friend.
    Speaking of friends, I am starting to think that Freddie and Stevie are more than just coincidence. These two seem to be glued at the hip!
    Love your little wagon for your toys Sammy!
    Have a great weekend!
    Love, Cody and Mom

  6. Sorry about Bingo…it always hurts when one of our fur-babies go over the Rainbow Bridge.
    Hope the Monster is BACK in the closet so you can come out and have fun with your brand-new tissue.

    • hi Miss June! The Monster has been out, scooted around the house for a snack (haha), and is now tucked BACK in the closet so I’m heading for my tent for a snooze. Mom has given me some new tissue but I’m saving that for this afternoon’s activity. 😀 😀

      • Oh, I see! Sorry bout that. Not much going on here either with the hitch gone at a show through the holiday. Trying to think up fun stuff to do with the boy…for some reason washing window blinds and window screens out on the deck fell flat yesterday. Ha, imagine. As pay back we’re gonna wax his truck over the weekend. Yipee! 🙂

        • Hi Miss D! I have the computer back now – Mom’s doing something about dinner (for Dad – not me ;( ). How about you and Jake going for a ride together? Maybe take a picnic lunch and blanket, etc. and just do a “Mom and Jake” kind of thing – of course take your camera with you!!!! That just HAS to be more fun than washing blinds and screens!!!!

  7. Well done on cleaning up your stuff Sammy. My cats feel for you as today we are in carpet cleaning mode and they are not impressed! It’s going really well, as I’m sure you can tell by the fact that I am writing this instead of cleaning. Maybe I have ADD?
