Wet Friday

Standard

Gosh we certainly had a WET Thursday and it looks like a WET Friday – just what we needed really since we were SOOO hoping that we’d have a pretty Fall before all the leaves just curl up and die on the trees!  Woo Hoo!   Plus since it was rainy all day yesterday I had LOTS of warm lap time with Mom (which you know I love)…………

Gosh Mom – won’t you miss this next week when you’re gone????

Today I’m hoping to get my Mom motivated enough to help me with some more Cat Scouts badges but who knows – SHE seems to think she needs to clean the house and start thinking about piling clothes up in the guest room where the SUITCASES OF DOOM are sitting.  She’s got her priorities all messed up.  She should be thinking about me – not suitcases.

But back to the rain for a minute……….you know how I complain a LOT about the weather right?   Well yesterday afternoon the sump pump in the basement was chugging along – the rain was coming down in buckets – and about 3PM in the afternoon I decided I’d better be prepared for the worst…………………

Needless to say the worst never happened but let’s hope today doesn’t send me hunting again  for the snorkel.  I’d love it if we had a gentle soaking rain……not the GREAT FLOOD OF OCTOBER 2013 !!   My girlcatfriend Sundae lives on the water and the high tide has been worrying me a bit these last few days because they had as much or more rain than we did.   I called her on my CATCELLPHONE yesterday to tell her if she needs me to sail down and save her I will.

Yep – that’s me – the purrrrfect Cat Scout…………..”BE PURRRRPARED”…………!!!

Happy Friday Peeps!   Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀

  2. What a lovely Gentleman you are rescuing Sundae! Whee hope you don’t get too much rain. Whee had a bit this morning and now it will be too wet for us to play outside today which has made us grumpy piggies because whee are dashing around and bouncing off the walls! Mummy has let us take over the hallway and front room though so it’s not all bad.

    Stay afloat furfriend

    • Hi Guys! I went outside even though it was raining like mad – Mom held the umbrella over BOTH of us and I snuffled around and ate a bit of grass before I got too soggy to stay out there. I think Mom was glad I insisted we come back in. I HATE when I’m trapped inside although napping is not so bad 😀 😀 😀 😀 !!

  4. So glad you were prepared to rescue my kitty-niece, Sundae, if necessary. That water was getting close. But she’s so ‘laid-back’ I don’t think the water bothered her at all!

    • Poor Henry – I guess he probably has located a nice hiding spot (I hope) so he can wait until the rain lets up enough to come home. It’s REALLY raining hard here – Sam’s on my recliner under a blanket sleeping. What a life!!!

    • I think you SHOULD get some Weim-wellies Easy….all I have to do if my feet are getting too wet is get Mom to carry me. Works every time. You – on the other hand – are a bit more of an “arm-full” than I am!!!!

  7. Snorts – That’s the scout you are my friend. I’m sorry to report that I might have accidentally caused all of that rain for you. I was dancing a shag in my front room and I think I did the rain dance instead of the shag and well it’s all history now. Please forgive me? XOXO – Bacon

    • Bacon since you’re confessing (which is ever so good for your soul you know) I’m gonna forgive you for doing the rain dance accidentally. I wish I could have seen your moves…..whatever it was that you did certainly worked because we are having some VERY heavy rain!!!!

      • Thank you my friend for being so kind in forgiveness. See, it started off with daddy doing the baby butt dance (long story on that one – snorts). I knew I had better moves so I started dancing. But I got my moves messed up and then I realized I was doing the rain dance and well then it was too late. I might add that I was really, REALLY busting a move so that could account for the Noah like rains. I am sorry – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    • Yes I felt the need to save my Sundae Girl before she floated away! She lives right on the river down south and I worried that she might get carried away with the high tide!! Besides, it gave me a chance to sail in my sailboat!

  13. Sammy, if you’re tired of all that rain, you can head over here to our island where we’re having some great fall weather…sunshine and warm temps. And we can work on some Cat Scout badges together!

  14. You are a true gentleman and the epitome of a Cat Scout in saving your girl friend in the event of flooding. Too bad their isn’t a merit badge for that. And darn it, the swimming merit badge requires that you actually get wet. Stay dry.

  15. Oh how I love my visits to Sammy-ville. The “SUITCASE OF DOOM” made me snort…oh the drama. Glad to hear you’re not underwater and the sump pump is doing it’s job. All your artistry is so fun and whimsical how could Sundae resist a rescue in the ‘Love Boat’ with sweet little you. Happy weekend Sam and Pam, keep those paws (and red slippers) high and dry. xoK
