Spying on Mr. Monster


Happy Monster Day!  Most of you know it as FRIDAY but since my parents insist on doing housecleaning every Friday, it’s Monster Day for me.  Today I believe I’m going to try to be brave for a change.

This seems like a safe spot to observe Mr. Monster....

This seems like a safe spot to observe Mr. Monster….

Except what if Mr. Monster gets too close to my newspaper and sucks it right up?  No no no that will NEVER do!

Now up here, Mr. Monster can’t reach me…..this has possibilities…..

If I get up on Mom’s bed, I’ll be out of reach from Mr. Monster but won’t I still HEAR him?  All those fireworks last night made me nervous enough…..do I want to go through that drama and trauma again?????

Keepin' Cool INSIDE!

This is always a good spot….under my Dad’s chair at the dining room table. The Monster will go right by me here…..

But there’s still the NOISE factor to deal with…………………….I know – I’ve got the PERFECT idea!!!!!!!



Happy Friday (or Monster Day) to everyone……….and don’t forget the search continues for a home for Leo…………….(Please visit Savannah for Leo’s Page with details) and please spread the word if you haven’t already.  The more people who know about Leo needing a home the better!

Monster Friday


OK I just bet you think this blog post is all about Halloween right?  Nope….it’s not…..it’s cleaning day here in my house and the vacuum monster comes out of the closet on cleaning day. 

You may remember a while back someone posted a video on YouTube showing a kitty cat who liked riding around on one of those Rhoomba floor vacuums…..I think that cat must be nuts or something……!

Then there was a picture of a cat who apparently liked the feel of the vacuum cleaner on its body – or at least that’s what the photo Mom saw would lead you to believe – again, either the human OR the cat or both must be nuts or something…….!

Now what I think is a perfectly good reaction to a vacuum cleaner is MY reaction which is to run and hide somewhere quiet and just hope it’s over as soon as possible. 

Wake me when it’s over……..

I have to admit though that sometimes I’m able to withstand the sound of the thing to the point that I’ll wait on the stairs for it to shut up rather than zoom down to the basement or up to my Mom’s studio to my tent.  Mom wonders if maybe I’m just too lazy to run off – or maybe my hearing isn’t as good as it used to be so it doesn’t bother me as much. 

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

I’ll just tune out the noise……concentrate…..go into the “zone”……!

Oh well…..I can guarantee you one thing for sure……I’ll never want to ride on our vacuum and I certainly don’t want it sucking hair off my head – and THAT’s a PROMISE!

Happy Furrrrrriday (aka Monster Day)
