Oh What A Day!

Actually “oh what TWO days” (so far)……….because today is a carbon copy of yesterday and yesterday was PURRRFECT.   No complaints from me.   Not too hot or humid – it was downright fabulous.   I celebrated by spending most of the day asking Mom about every ten minutes to take me out on the front porch.   Yes I did………I loved stretching in the sun…….sitting in the sun……cruising the lawn…..peeing in the bushes (oops – too much info??), and just enjoying the fresh air.   Mom did all of that (except for the peeing part of course)  with me and then we further celebrated by watching Dad use the string trimmer all over the yard neatening things up.

LOVE that sunshine!

LOVE that sunshine!

See me under the fern plant????

Maybe just a little nibble of grass……

Under the table on the back deck……

I am sure I’ll be doing a “repeat performance” today………………and I can hardly wait……………in fact, maybe I’d better go wake Mom and Dad up – the sooner we start enjoying another PURRRFECT day together the better!!!

I'll just stay inside and play all day......

MA MA MA MA MA – Time To Get UPPPPPP!

Hope you have a beautiful Thursday too…………………………oh – before I go – here’s a “thought of the day” about aging (which of course I am doing as gracefully as possible!):

  1. Yesterday WAS a gorgeous weather day; Motor Mommy worked outside almost all day. Looks like you had a GREAT time. You are very well hidden under that fern.
    Enjoy!

    • Hi Cupcake! I was up bright and early this morning and READY to head outside into the fresh air. It was perfect out there and will be all day. Mom is even celebrating by working in her much neglected gardens! WOOT! If I had a street to nap in like you do, I’d probably have a nice street nap right about now!

      Love, Sam

  2. It’s been beautiful here too, but the heat is going to be on for the weekend. I guess I can’t complain, we have had plenty of rain and it is summer! Glad you are enjoying your OUTSIDE time on the porch and in the bushes!

    • Oh yes indeed – today is beautiful again and tomorrow will be too – we’ve been so lucky and it ALMOST (but not quite) makes me forget how hideous the weather was before this “GIFT”…….so sticky and icky I wouldn’t even set foot outside for longer than 30 seconds! But today would be perfect weather for a cookout…………maybe I’ll mention that casually to Mom?

      • I’ll send you some of these storms. They are the pits. Every night like clockwork right after dinner, it gets dark outside the thunder Gods start up. Then the rain pours. Then a while later it’s over and hotter than before. I hope it doesn’t rain at camp next week. XOXO – Bacon

  4. Sounds like a lovely day Sammy. The freedom of peeing in the bushes feels so good doesn’t it. It is too cold to be near the end of July here. I want some warm!

    • Yes Flynn…..peeing where we want to – it’s Mother Nature’s way yes? Litterboxes are find and dandy but being out in nature enjoying the fresh air and a good “bathroom experience” – nothing like it! I hope you get some WARM weather my friend……….

    • Mom thinks it’s funny that I like peeing (and that OTHER THING!) outside sometimes instead of in my litterbox. I say it’s just NATURAL – I was a feral kitten and I know what it’s like to be OUT. Plus it’s my way of making sure the neighborhood cats know this is MY territory!!!!!

      Bacon – yes indeed – nature’s perfect food!

    • Hi Girls! I have a great yard. When I was your age, Mom and Dad trained me on a harness so I could go outside with them for walks. Now that I’m an old guy, if Mom or Dad is outside with me, I don’t have to wear the harness. My Mom and Dad are both nice humans – I was lucky that they adopted me almost 16 years ago – I’ve had a wonderful life!

        • Well little man, exploring and finding new things and making new friends is all part of being a young cat…..you’re still checking out your “boundaries and limits” and your Ladymum knows that but you mustn’t worry her by going on adventures when she doesn’t know where you are. Besides, it can be a scary and dangerous world out there. Much better if you’re WITH her and in your outside cat condo or at least WITH her in sight. So, I’m sure you enjoy visiting your Aunty next door but best stay home and safe!!!

  13. I love days like that too. The yard is so pretty Pam. I bet you’re happy you didn’t move. I’ve barely had time to enjoy the yard, seems I just get out to clean it up lately, so I’m happy ours is teeny tiny. It’s wonderful that you’re still enjoying being out and wandering around on the lawn Sammy. Big hugs xoxo B
