Monday Yawn Fest


Happy Groundhog Day!


Boy was it a BUSY weekend!   Especially yesterday……………….at Cat Scouts we started off with a big birthday party with a Groundhog theme in honor of TODAY being Groundhog Day.

We then slowly moved through the day and afternoon getting ready to PARTY HEARTY at the Super Bowl.   Some cats watched the Kitten Bowl but we don’t have cable so we couldn’t see it (sniff sniff).   Although I did have a chance to toss the ball around with a kitten prior to the game!

Then the BIG GAME started and all I know is there was no score at the end of the first quarter.  Why is that all I know?  Well because I was so tired from the long day that I stopped watching before the game was over that’s why and I don’t know who won (at least at the time I’m writing this blog which was LAST NIGHT!!!!) – so by now we all know if the Patriots or the Seahawks won.  I was rooting for the Seahawks………….

We all (Mom, Dad and me) had an early night – we were pooped…………and know what else happened yesterday?   My pal Raz’s Dad was discharged from the hospital and he’s HOME!!!    Thanks to all of you who sent POTP while his Dad had his operation – he’s doing GREAT and will be recuperating at home now.

Raz, Allie, Ellie and Cubby thank you for the POTP!  DADDY'S HOME!

Pardon me but I feel a nap coming on (YAWN)……………oh – don’t forget tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser – I bet I didn’t have to remind you of that did I ??    Who DOESN’T know about Tuesday Teaser – NOBODY that’s who!

Hugs, Sleepy Sam

Huh?…..What’s a Groundhog?!!!!

Ahh....this spot will be sunny for AT LEAST another hour!

When I settled in here the sun was right where I wanted it! Why does it MOVE???!!

Hi Folks….Sam here….another day in paradise!  I haven’t seen my nemesis Stevie yet this morning – she must be at her OWN house this morning or maybe hunting out in the woods.  Mom has her snack ready if she ever DOES show up though.  Meanwhile – guess what?!   Mom and I were outside super early – me with my harness and leash (Mom calls it my sweater), and Mom with a cup of coffee.  We went out the front door and all the way around the house while I checked everything out to make sure everything was in its place and smelled right!  I know JUST where my yard ends so I made sure to mark the “borders” appropriately….ahem….so there’s no question by any other passing animals that Sammy Kimmell is the KING of this hill ! 

When we got to the back yard I sat down to watch the birds coming to the feeders and birdbath so Mom sat in a yard chair.  By then it was light so Mom undid my leash.  I saw something STRANGE coming up to the space under one of the feeders……Mom knew I’d seen something and came over to see what it was……guess what!  Mom said it was something called a “groundhog” but to me it looked like a super huge mouse on steroids!!!  We were maybe 20 feet away from it and either it didn’t see us or didn’t care we were there because the big fat thing just snuffled around on the ground and helped himself to sunflower seeds……some noisy old blackbirds landed near it and scared it off back down into the woods but it was neat to see something “different” at the all you can eat salad bar in the backyard!!! 

Golly……there’s never a dull moment around here.   I think before I curl up for my first nap of the day I’ll stand at the front door and keep an eye out for Stevie.  When she arrives I always go find Mom wherever she is and tell her that Stevie’s here so she can give her her treat.  A guy has to look out for his pet cat ya know!
