dreams meme

Donny tagged me for the Dreams Meme. Following the rules, here's what we do:
1. Post who tagged you and link back to them and then to PetPics.
2. Then answer this question: What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble or suffer any consequences?
3. Then tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal.

I would:

1. Stay out extra late with my Valentine girl Jelly Bean.

2. Go nose to nose with a polar bear to figure out why mom likes them so much.

3. Practice pirate speak so I'll be ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day in September.

I'm going to tag Obi at Forty Paws, and Sara at The Daily Scratch.

temptation thursday

mom and i have been talking about how to be sure i get my share of the temptations.

for lucy, night time temptations are a sport. mom tosses one, lucy tries to catch it in her paws. lately, mom has been going for distance so lucy races out of the room. while lucy is gone, mom gives me a couple of temptations. sometimes, she'll give me a little handful at a time.

the thing is, if lucy sees mom doing this, she'll race away from her game to see if she can get my little stash. mom's getting a bit wiley though--like the coyote, which makes lucy the road runner--so we're getting better at making sure my temptations are mine.

who knew that having a baby sister would be such a trial! whew!

grumbly fuzz

i would miss the little rascal. she is awfully cute, funny, and sometimes can entice me to play with her.

still, she does eat my temptations. almost every time. i think i'm prepared to enter into negotiations around the issue though. i think mom would miss her too much.

grumble grumble grumble

lucy writes

ben's threatening me. he's been telling mom that she should send me to live somewhere maybe with our cousins, daisy mae maus and the feline americans.

i'm not a bad girl. not really. i don't take his toys. if i get to his temptations first, i eat them, but that's fair, right? i only put the bitey on him once in a while. when we're both hopped up on 'nip, i confess that i do bunny kick him. but my claws are short, and i don't really hurt him!

i purr real loud, like to launch myself into mom's arms for snuggles, play with all my toys. yes, sometimes i claw the couch. but i stop when mom says 'no'.

do you have any suggestions for how i can get ben to agree to let me stay?

lucy the very cute and sweet.

Happy Valentine's Day!

to my lovely JB, these roses are for you!

enjoy the fragrance, my sweet!

later, join me for a candlelit meal here:

i chose our champagne and niptini glasses to accommodate your graceful sweep of whisker...

our meal begins with salmon...prepared just the way you like it. cheese and veg is for presentation, although i've heard the flavor of the brie will astonish you.

after our meal, we can stroll through the nearby field of catnip...who knows what frolic will ensue?!

MOM got an award!

Karl gave mom an award! Karl's fiance Ruis made it. It's called the Golden Paw. Ruis used his own golden paw to make the award.

Mom says thanks.

(Mom: "Um, Ben, can I say my own thank you?" "Oh all right. Don't be a computer hog though. I want to go visit JB.")

Mom writes: Thank you so much Karl! This award means a lot to me. I will treasure it!

I'd like to give the award to Parker and her Mommy, and to Prinnie and her mommie.

There are lots of kitties and moms and dads who should get this award, so let's spread it around, ok?

PS: Karl, Ruis's superior talent is clearly evident in his fine creative work. You've got an excellent match!

lucy was uncooperative tonight. she normally rolls around on the floor and shows off her soft white tummy and her tiny incision. tonight? nope. not having it.

A touch of tummy floof.Yes, I'm beautiful. No, you may not see my tummy.
You may not see my tummy. You may see my bottom.

A tiny bit of tummy.
Shaved tummy and mom's nose.

fuzzy tummies

lucy's healing well. she cleaned the betadine off her tummy and her fur is pristine white again. she's not too keen about jumping, which seems smart. she asks for and gets lots and lots of cuddles.

my tummy fur mats easily. mom's been brushing me almost everyday, and it it still matted by bed time the next day. i think that's because i'm an extra-fuzzy gentleman. i've made it almost a year since my last lion cut. it doesn't look like i'm going to need one again. got to say that sheared look is a little humiliating.

(mom, get your camera connection fixed! we want to show pictures of fuzzy tummies!)

update: mom's camera connection is fixed--thanks cousin sam!--and now she can take and post pictures again!
