Keepin’ It Clean

Standard

 

BUSY BUSY BUSY……………….every week we have monster day and every monster day I help by staying out of the way and taking care of getting MYSELF cleaned up…………it’s the least I can do – giving myself a bath on Fridays.    While Mom and Dad are pushing the monsters around sucking up the dust bunnies, I’m cleaning between my toesies, taking care of my ears and face……and my  tummy of course……the spots I can easily reach.   Mom will brush me and take care of the others.

Besides, I have a special reason to be extra clean today – it’s my Auntie Carol’s birthday (Mom’s sister) and I wouldn’t want her to read my blog and see a dirty cat!  OH NO!  Heaven forbid!   This is for you Auntie Carol (and I promise you I’m clean!).

CAROLBIRTHDAY

It won’t be long now before July 4th celebrations…………….that means noisy fireworks…………I’ll be wearing my headset to keep out all the BANG BANG, KABOOM, SWOOOOOOSH BOOM noises.  My Mom and Dad will probably have a cookout at dinner time but at night – there will be fireworks.  They usually have a bit of a show in the front yard…….this year maybe just a few.  I am at the point where I like to WATCH them from inside the house though – that’s progress – I used to HIDE when they did them!   Are you afraid of loud noises?????   Mom thinks maybe because my hearing isn’t as good as it used to be, I may be able to watch without any problems.   Even though we live WAY WAY out of town in the Virginia countryside, Washington, DC always does a spectacular display down on the National Mall…………..a bazillion years ago my Mom went to that but it was just a mass of humanity and heat – our front yard fireworks are enough for us!

Well I’m off to begin snoopervising the cleaning…………cracking the whip – getting these humans MOTIVATED (sometimes that’s tough!).

HUGS,

SAMMY THE MOTIVATOR

A Special P.S.   A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Miss Jan of Jan’s Funny Farm today!!!!!

  1. You are SPOTLESS for Auntie Carol’s big day, S. I hope she has a great birthday. I am not afraid of fireworks at all. Certain street signs scare me, and of course balloons and ladders and soccer players…..

    Love and licks,

  2. Happy Birthday to Auntie Carol! 🙂 You look spiffing, Sammy. I’m sure she will be impressed! I don’t like fireworks, they make me growl and go all low slung! Makes mum laugh! We get loads of jets and helicopters flying low, but it’s the stoopy fireworks that get to me!! Have a great weekend, buddy xx

  3. Hey birthday to your special auntie. You had better tell auntie about the monster that lives in your house too so she keeps away from him. Yes I am afraid of the boomers and wish people would not set them off in our neighborhood.

  4. Happy birthday Aunt Carol. I guess we will suffer the same indignities here On July 1st. Firecrackers and fireworks…being made to stay inside…yelling and carrying on. This is no fun Sammy. There should be a Canada Day for cats too.

  8. Happy, happy birthday to your Auntie Carol – hope she has a great year ahead!!!

    We don’t think Lightning is bothered by the fireworks, but Ciara sure is. Mom is hoping to play some loud music and keep her distracted when those big bang bangs come here.

    Happy weekend.

    Woos – Ciara and Lightning

  13. It is imperative that a Cat Scout be clean and super impawtant for the #1 Cat Scout to set a good example. Mau says that Scouts can always depend on you to do that.
