Monsta Attack!

CLEANINGBANNER

Yep it SURE is…………….

Time to find a quiet spot and wait for an hour or two for things to calm down………

Or maybe go visit my psychiatrist and let him comfort me about my “monsta angst” ?

CLEANINGDOC

Guess what – I have two NEW posters for you that I found to tickle your funny bone about cleaning…..ready?

CLEANINGCATSHOES

MOM- DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!  NO WAY!!!!!

And this little winner which I think might look familiar to ALL of us…….

CLEANINGUNDERCOUCH

Yeah – well – it is one of our FAVORITE hiding spots right kitties?  Actually it may just be where things wind up when we’re batting stuff around the living room and it accidentally goes under the couch or a chair or a dresser or a table or something!

I figure I can get through anything noisy today because tomorrow morning will be bacon and I can put up with this disruption to my napping schedule TODAY in order to eat bacon TOMORROW!

RIGHT?

RIGHT!

Alright Mom...let's get it over with.....

Alright Mom…let’s get it over with…..

And now, for the piece de resistance (which means of course WAIT TIL YA SEE THIS!)………..today at the Tabby Cat Club it’s “post an embarrassing picture of your human” day – wanna see the photo I stole borrowed from Mom’s dresser drawer????????    It’s HER in 1968.     Make sure and visit the TCC for more pix to give you a giggle.

Mom - is that REALLY you????

      Say – what a great idea – a dust bunny BBQ – heaven knows that would be an ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET if we did it! HAHAHAHA My Mom was a fake blonde back then but your Mom is a REAL one!

        … not really… she is gray-blonde now :o) but fortunately the hair colorations are much better than they smell :o)

          Oh Easy when my Mom was coloring her hair I thought NOTHING could possibly be that hideous smelling but indeed hair coloring used to be really ICKY……I think they are more “user-friendly” (and NOSE FRIENDLY) these days but my Mom quit coloring her hair a few years ago – finally. Your Mom would be pretty no matter WHAT color hair she has!!! (although purple might not be too good)

    Sammy your mom was very pretty when she was young but she is a true beauty now outside and inside. Give her a big hug from us. I want to try those shoe things on my little sisfur. She races around the house all the time. It would be clean in no time with those.

      Hi Charles! My Mom said THANK YOU for the compliment – very sweet – you made her day! I passed on the hug (which I love to do!) and she sends one back!!!! Those shoe things are super cool but I’m hoping Mom isn’t serious about them……I’m too slow these days anyway but put dusters on my toesies and I’d just lie there all day long and not move!

Mom was pretty darn innocent – she’d been married for a year when that photo was taken – but she looked pretty much like that when she graduated high school only maybe not QUITE as blonde! In Florida where she was living in 1968 EVERYONE had blonde hair. HAHAHAHA I hope you avoided any monster attacks you may have had this week – I’m a “SURVIVOR”!

          I read about your antics little one and I must say, you really are a POWERHOUSE of energy……maybe there is something that will help calm you down just a bit but still allow you to be the energetic little guy that you are. You worry your Ladymum so much when you run out the door – it’s not a good thing to make her worry. I once disappeared in the back yard when Mom and I were outside together and she cried and cried because she couldn’t catch me – I was too fast for her – so she just waited in the yard for me to get tired of being on my own – which I did – an hour later I came back and was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to see her and I never did that ever again.

            Oh dear boy I can remember being your age and we really do have so much energy to burn! My Mom often said if I’d had a “kitty friend” to grow up with I might have been more calm but then again I was the only little kitten at the shelter when she adopted me! Imagine having someone to chase and wrestle with though……Being an only kitty isn’t all that great sometimes! HAHAHA Anyway, I hope the Bach’s helps keep you cool, calm, and INSIDE the house so you don’t scare your Ladymum. They love us so – and we don’t want to worry them!

    OMC…Mom Pam was so pretty. She and our mom looked very much alike in 1968 (from photos we have seen). We got a good laugh at the photo with all the toys that were under the couch. Our favorite “storage” spot is under the fridge. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

      Oh yes – the refrigerator is a good one too. When Mom and Dad got a new refrigerator a year or two ago there were about 10 wads of paper and foil (which was my favorite toy as a baby) under there! HAHAHAHAHA Glad you liked my Mom’s old photo – I think the 60s and 70s the style was longish hair and if glasses were needed – BIG frames. Mom sees those now and giggles although she’s still wearing glasses they don’t look like that any more!!!!!
