Need I say more???????
Gimme a warm spot by the fireplace any old day!
Happy Sunday, Sammy 😀
Boxing Day………..yesterday was Boxing Day and I missed it……I’m ready now of course as you can plainly see but NOBODY TOLD ME so I missed out on showing my stuff in the ring……………..
What? What did you say Mom? OHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Not THAT kind of boxing……..you mean the cardboard boxing – I love boxes…..I even talked you into saving some of them from that mess you and Daddy made in the library with paper flying, ribbon ripping, boxes tossed to and fro….I rescued some and insisted you KEEP them for me! THAT kind of boxing.
Anyway, guess what else happened yesterday……we got MORE snow! We did…….close to two inches…….but late in the day it turned to rain which means we now have about two inches of SLUSH everywhere. Slush is nowhere near as pretty as snow. Oh well. Can’t have it all right?
I think a bunch of my friends are taking some extra time off for the holiday because I didn’t have a lot of “blog hopping/visiting” to do yesterday. Maybe today will be different…..I’m dying to know what everybody got from Santa Paws.
Well, please excuse me but I believe Mom and Dad are about to leave for the grocery store. Mom usually goes by herself but because we’ve got some icing on the roads, Dad is insisting on driving Mom there. I just want to check and make sure “SAMMY FOOD” is on the list – not that I don’t trust Mom to remember – but I don’t want ANY POSSIBLE EXCUSES……..yesterday I got my last container of my favorite food and the only stuff we have left in the cupboard is yucky.
A guy has to look out for his interests you know…………Happy Boxing Day Plus One!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀
So, many of you asked if my Mom saw some paw prints on the driveway when she went outside this morning to check……nothing like a freshly re-sealed asphalt driveway for paw prints to show up the morning after the job’s done – right? WRONG. No paw prints – not a one – or as several people said “no pawtographs” ! In fact, the driveway is totally hard after a full day of sun yesterday and today. If only my Mom had let me outside yesterday I might have left my mark on posterity – something for the next owners of this house to wonder about – – – “who was that cat with the extra toes who left his pawtograph on our driveway???”…….Well, don’t worry – I’ll figure out some way to leave my mark behind – even if I have to carve my name in one of our big oaks with my claw…..
Another thing I’ve been asked is what happened to that woods trail project your parents were working on?? Good question. Well, they got the trail cleared off, plants planted along the edges down into the woods by the swing and Dad was going to get stone either delivered to our house OR he was going to go get it himself and finish off the trail with stone. Nice huh? Well, that’s still on his “TO DO” list. Meanwhile, it’s still a nice trail and I still like to sit on the swing with my Mom on a hot day.
Some of you may know that I have a frog friend named Freddy and I see him almost every time we’ve had rain – he comes out and sits on my front sidewalk. If Mom and I are out super early the morning after a rain he’s always there – like he’s waiting for me. Well, this morning, Mom went out on the front porch in the dark to give our neighborhood mooch Stevie some breakfast and there was Freddy up on my front porch!!!! Huh???? We didn’t have any rain last night but there was Freddy on my porch up by the front door. Good thing Mom didn’t step on him……Mom thinks maybe he came up there for the bugs who are attracted to our porch light. Maybe so, but I’m wondering if Freddy doesn’t want to become a “house frog” and move in?????
I’m not sure what we’ll be up to around here today but Saturdays usually aren’t very exciting. Mostly my parents just hang around and take it easy. One very good thing is that my Mom will be making breakfast soon and bacon is usually on the menu. I do like a bit of bacon……I’ll be sitting quietly and politely at her feet when she sits down at the breakfast table. If I behave very well, bacon will be on MY Saturday menu too! 😉
Hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
Kitty hugs, Sammy
Happy Sunday! It’s too early to tell (and Mom hasn’t been outside to check yet) but we MIGHT have a cooler day today – that MIGHT mean I won’t be complaining about the heat – which MIGHT be nice for all of you to not have to read about me in my afghan tent to escape the heat!
Instead, I thought I’d entertain you a bit with some silly photos of me from past blogs. Mom did these with the help of the software that came with her digital camera. They make me laugh and I hope they make YOU laugh too!!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST…….
OK so now that you’re all rolling in the aisles, I guess it’s time to be on my merry way. Besides, Mom’s heading down the driveway to get the Sunday newspaper and depending on whether she’s hot and sweaty or cool as a cucumber, I’ll know if we’ve lucked out and got BETTER weather today! Here’s hoping!
Your Silly Sammy sends you Sunday hugs……… 😀 😀 😀
Mom took this photo of me yesterday while she was working on my Cafepress store – and I was TRYING to get her to pay more attention to me than the computer screen……Geez! Sometimes I think she loves that machine more than she loves little old me!
Now you know I’m not serious – my Mom adores me (as well she should) and I adore her but sometimes I have to go up to her studio and look pitiful (i.e. this photo) in order to give her the BIG HINT that maybe it’s time to come downstairs. Maybe she should shut down computer operations for a while and let me curl up on her legs on the recliner…..or give me a treat…..or take me outside. I want her to appreciate some of the FINER things in life – like ME.
Am I being selfish? Naw…..I’m just an only cat who happens to think his humans are two of the best kitty toys he has and that his TOYS should be available to him 24/7 – not when there’s nothing else for his TOYS to do. Get it?
So tell me – because maybe I can use some of your techniques – what do YOU do when YOU want attention from your humans???????

OK – who took my spring away? Come on – confess….who did it? I tried THREE times to go outside on the front porch yesterday and could only stand the cold wind and temperature for about five minutes before I came back inside lickety-split and sat by the nearest heat register! It barely got to 40 today – OK OK I know some of you are still hanging out in snow at this point but here in Warrenton, Virginia, it should be in the 60s AT LEAST!!! I wouldn’t have been surprised if, when Mom had opened the door, I would have seen this:
But I’m just kidding – no snow. Thankfully. We did get a few cold showers off and on though. Today is supposed to be warmer. We’ll see. No doubt I’ll be whining about it on my blog tomorrow if it ISN’T warm today!
So since it was cold, I did the next best thing to hanging around on the porch or back deck or yard………I took lapnaps courtesy of Mom!
I’d still like to know who stole my spring……if you’re the one would you pretty please send it back to me????? Thursday Hugs, Sammy
Sometimes I’m not so sure my parents really appreciate my “help” ! For instance yesterday……….my parents were out doing the first spring clean-up/mow/trim thing and I decided to skip one of my many planned naps of the day to help.
I decided it would be great since I’m so much closer to the ground than they are and can SEE stuff down here better if I did a walk-through and pointed out all the bare spots in our struggling lawn. I figured Dad would want to know where I would appreciate some nice soft green GRASS growing instead of a dirt spot or mud puddle. You’d think he’d appreciate that – right? Instead of thanking me – my parents both pretty much ignored me. I even stayed on the front porch out of their way while Mom mowed and Dad did all that other noisy stuff with that blowing thing and the trimming thing…..usually I’m INSIDE when they do that – today I was being “companionable” and helpful.
Daddy’s big joke is that he and Mom are “the landscaping team of Kimmell & Kimmell”……..well I just thought it would be nice if we changed that to “Kimmell, Kimmell & Kimmell” with my help spotting the bare places in the lawn. Do I have to tell you that it’s the last time I’m going to offer my help? From now on, I’m going to be INSIDE in a window watching them groan, moan, and sweat while I enjoy a nice leisurely and infinately more comfortable few hours.
If they want a nice lawn they can crawl around on the ground and find those bare spots without me! So there! No I’m not really mad…….I’m just being silly………as usual……..but they really should have paid attention to me as I pointed those spots out.

Ahhhhh……Sunday. My parents read the Sunday paper and I sleep. Why read the paper anyway? Now if you want me to involve myself with the newspaper – give me a chunk of it to add to my tissue pile !
Sure – I’ll read it….but I have to read it MY way….from the inside out. HAHA …..
But really – all I want to do on a lazy Sunday is BE lazy. At my age, I’ve managed to perfect the fine art of “lazy” so why mess with a good thing??? Speaking of LAZY, my Dad’s still sound asleep in bed. Mom and I have been up for a while now but I’m thinking MAYBE, just MAYBE I should go hop up on the bed and come up real close and give him a nice, loud
Or would that be crossing the line of “acceptable behavior?????? I’ll let you know how my plan turns out.
Hi Peeps…….well, as I told you yesterday, I’m on a mission for the Feline Bureau of Investigation but I’ll be returning today some time….hopefully in time to greet Mom when she pops in the front door after her trip.
I’m not supposed to say anything of course about the adventure Kozmo and I are involved in, but I decided it wouldn’t be telling anything TOP SECRET to show you a picture of what I was riding on/in yesterday as I set out on my mission to help Kozmo!
Yep – I was really “roughing it” huh!
OK – I’ve said enough – besides, I’m getting a top secret text from Kozmo right now so I’ve got to sign off……………….tomorrow Kozmo and I will BOTH be blogging about our journeys and the BIG MISSION. You’ll need to visit both of our blogs to get the full story and I promise it will keep you on the edge of your seat!!!
Agent Sammy, 00.8 signing off until tomorrow……
It’s another holiday here in the US of A. President’s Day. Just another excuse for the mail service not to deliver mail. Just another excuse for the stores to have ridiculous sales and cause traffic jams at every Mall.
Humbug. However, I must say, I look rather splendid behind the podium don’t you think? Gives me an idea…….since people are having a tough time deciding on who to vote for in the next election – what about:
SAMMY KIMMELL FOR PRESIDENT?????
Oh – wait a minute – that means that I actually have to manage the government???? NEVER MIND.
Anyway, those of you who get to celebrate President’s Day by not having to work…….enjoy!
Sammy (just plain old regular Sammy the Cat)
