lucy's got some 'splaining to do

hi everybody! how you doin'? do you have summer yet where you live? we don't. not yet. mama says it's probably not going to be warm here this year. she says she doesn't mind...she's got webbed feet from living in the pacific northwet for so long.

when we do have a little bit of sun, mama's on the deck moving plants around so they get as much exposure as possible. she says the basil looks a little wet...and kind of yellow-green.

she started us a little pot of catnip. in about 3 weeks, it's not so little anymore. she brings me leaves when she goes out to water and turn the pots into the sun.




you know that there's a little competition between ben and me, right? we both want mama's attention as much as possible. with his 'lion cut', he's cold, and wants to snuggle a lot. (mom uses quotes for the lion cut because the groomer CUT OFF HIS MANE!)


i like to cuddle because that's what babies do. yes, i know i'm a year old. uncle jerry says that i'm a woman, but mama and i know that i'm still a baby. i want mama and me time every day. several times a day is even better! i like to be held on my back. i purr while mama holds me, gives me tummy strokes, chin and cheek scritches, and she talks to me and tells me how much she loves me. i smile at her and close my eyes in lots of kitty kisses. sometimes i even let her kiss my belly. sometimes. (mol)

mama says i'm a grown up baby...and here's a picture to prove it!

Summer has been here in full blast hot heat. It's been in the 90s and high 80s all week. Very hot. We love the home grown catnip. Mom is trying to grow some from seed. She can't wait to see the first leaves grow.

Summer is at its peak here ~ Ben and Lucy both look very cute and kinda funny too ~ we hope you guys are having lots of good snuggle times...sorry we missed Suzanne's anniversary ~ we know she misses you guys across the rainbow bridge and sends you many purrs...

We will always be our mommie's babies. I nefur had home grown catnip before. Maybe I can convince Mom to get some and grow it for me.

We're not growin' any 'nip here, but Mom's got basil. You're lucky to be havin' some good weather.
