Monster Friday


“Knock, Knock….Cleaning Service!”

Oh how my Mom would like to hear that every Friday instead of dragging the monster out of the closet and doing all three floors of housecleaning herself – well, truth be told, Dad DOES help but still, for two humans and a cat it’s a lot of cleaning!

So I’m going to start helping…………..It’s only fair…………….


Then when things are all nice and spic and span (or at least as close to it as my parents will ever get!), I can finally curl up and get in a nap (or 10) and all will be right with my world………..!!


Keeping this spot on the Guets Room bed nice and warm for Miss Michelle and Mr. Craig when they get here to visit me NEXT week!!!!!

Now – what else can I do (or not) today????

Rainy Thursday


Hi Peeps!   So it’s another rainy day here in my part of Virginia…….it was dreary yesterday but that was OK because Mom wasn’t home much of the morning/early afternoon since she was at the dentist.  Dad and I were on our own.  He spent the whole morning in the library reading and I was in the basement in a comfy chair snoring snoozing.  When Mom got home we “resumed our regular programming” and I followed her up the basement steps and popped up on her lap for some quality Mom time.

zzzzz.....snoozin' on Mom's leg....zzzzz

Next week I have to go to the vet to get my bloods checked again – it will have been 3 months since I started taking my medicine for hyperthyroidism and he’ll want to see if one pill a day has me within normal range.  I was WAY over when I had my last checkup.  We’re ALL hoping one pill is enough because Mom is having a fit getting the one pill down me (tee hee) – she crushes it into smithereens and mixes it with yogurt as a treat – I love that yogurt but I can taste that medicine most times.   I’m getting smart about it too but once in a while she fools me and I get MOST of the pill down.  Anyway, Mom’s going to talk to the vet about transdermal medication.   There are places where you can have the medicine compounded with a cream and then it’s just rubbed in our little ears and we absorb the medication through our skin!!!   Amazing?  I think so and Mom figures THAT will be easier than the pill crushing/yogurt hiding thing anyway.  So wish us luck on that one!

Don’t wave that yogurt around in front of me and expect me to slurp it up! I know what’s hidden in there!!!!!!

What else is going on?   Well today is sheet changing day – that’s always exciting.  In my younger days I’d help Mom with that (well I called it help but she called it distracting tactics) but I don’t do that leaping about any more – I’m a senior guy who tries to behave in a dignified manner at all times (giggle giggle).   Mom will also do some other laundry perhaps…….that means an empty laundry basket and once in a while I get a ride in the laundry basket courtesy of Dad.  He attaches a rope and pulls me around on the wall to wall carpet in the laundry basket – now THAT’s fun!!!

Aw gee Mom….do you HAVE to put the bedspread back on the bed? This fleece blankie is so NICE!

What’s up for you today?  Anything exiting?   Just about ANYTHING you do today will be more exciting than MY day that’s for sure.

Resting Up Saturday


I’ve been such a busy boy I thought I’d give myself (and my Mom) a break and just have a RESTFUL Saturday (after bacon for breakfast of course)………………………where else would I nap but in my bacon cheeseburger bed????


Hope you all had fun at the Haunted House yesterday – WHAT?  You didn’t see it?   Well you’d better check it out right now!!


Hugs, Sammy

Rain and Wind….Oh My!


It’s not as yucky here as I know it is in many other areas today BUT yesterday it was one miserable day.  Great for naps but nothing else.   Windy – rainy – chilly…………….



But enough about the weather…………after all, it will be what it will be even if I don’t complain right?   Today is the 23rd and that means the clock is ticking until time for Kyla’s Highland Games AND, for that matter, before the Haunted House on my blog for Sam-O-Ween.   I have two other parties to go to that day – one at Cat Scouts and one at the Tabby Cat Club.  I’ll be one busy guy……….but I bet most of you have multiple parties to attend too.    We’ll all have a lot of fun though won’t we.   I sure have a lot of GREAT entries for my Funniest Costume contest…..just wait until you see them (giggle).

Today is laundry day at my house………….Mom changes the sheets on the bed and does the clothes laundry and towels too.  Exciting right?  Wrong.  I used to enjoy messing up the bed when Mom changed sheets but I’m a bit too “long in the tooth” (aka old) to do that these days…..but sometimes I follow Mom around as she does all her “stuff”……just to be companionable – know what I mean?

Laundry....they make it look FUN.....

Laundry….they make it look FUN…..

Mom’s gonna make an apple pie today – that will be the highlight of the day because it smells so wonderful while it’s baking.  She’s using granny smith apples – I think I’ll probably be able to pop up on her lap while it’s baking – she won’t want to be far from the kitchen and her recliner and the TV are right next to the kitchen.  I’m thinking it will be a good LAP/LEG nap day.   YAY!

C’mon Mom…..let that apple pie bake – I need you here!!

Do you have any special plans today???  Hmmm?????
