Thursday Thirteen

Mmmm! Tastes like chicken!
Here are 13 interesting things are going on...

1.Anytime we get to go out on the upstairs deck, Rudy sits under the catnip plant and tries to figure out how to get it. You really can see his little brain whirling around in his head. Plotting and scheming - it's fun to watch him. Mommy is sure he's going to figure something out soon!
2.Mommy has been riding her bike to work. She does not like to add to the pockets of the oil companies any more than she already has. She and Daddy say lots of bad words when the news talks about gas prices.
3.Diamond has to go to the VET next Tuesday for clippy claws! HA-HA-HA! He gets really askeeered about getting his nails clipped - what a wuss!
4.Mommy made up her own Salsa and BBQ sauce last weekend. She put fruit in the Salsa! And not one of us kitties enjoyed any part of it! Blech! Now, Tuna Salsa??? That would have been a different story!
5.Did you know that if you hide one of your fake mousies in your Mommy's slipper that she will scream when she slips her foot in there? I highly recommend doing this. You'll laugh and laugh and laugh!
6.A vishus deer ran through our front yard this week. This is not a good thing because we live where deer should not be running through our yard. Even though they are vishus, I hope the deer got to where it was safe.
7.I had forgotten how much I don't like window air conditioners. They are noisy and block my view from the bedroom.
8.I am being very difficult about Kimo and Sabi's Jump and Shout Contest. Mommy keeps trying to catch me jumping or shouting. I have done neither. HeeHee.
9.Speaking of difficult, Powder had a wicked-awful hairball on Tuesday and it was a lot of fun watching Mommy try to catch her and give her a dose of Cat Lax. For being a squillion years old, Mommy can move pretty fast. Just not as fast as Powder...
10.A big black birdie flew into our big picture window in the dining room yesterday. It made a big noise. The bird was OK, he stood right up and flew away. I was kind of bummed, I thought dinner was being delivered...
11.I heard Mommy and Daddy talking about having visitors coming this month. One of the visitors will be a little sticky thing! AAAIIIEEE!
12.I almost deaded the camera this week. Mommy should know better to leave the strap hanging over the table...
13.Puff entered the Scotch Furriest Friend Photo Contest. I hope she wins! Here's her photo entry -



Pretty, ain't she?

Lots of things going on at your place! Gas prices in the US, even though they are going up, are still cheaper than in most of the developed world. We pay the equivalent of $10 USD per US Gallon, so more than twice what Americans are paying!

That is a wonderful photo of Puff! We hope she wins!

Your house sounds busy Miss P. Makes us seem boring, just my mum and me. You can come over and visit if it gets too hectic.

That carpet sure is good camoflague for Puff - good luck sweetie.

Wow, things are really busy around there!

Puff is so pretty!

DEBRA said...

Whoa not one dull moment around your house! Momma started laffin and laffin about the fast food delivery,we thought that was a great idea. Yesterday Boo was trying to get us some fresh food, she found a nice juicy lizard right outside the window and she tried her best to get him, but she couldn't figure out how to open that window....something about not having a thumb...

Great picture of Puff...wow she is stunning. Good luck!!

Very truly yours,

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Wow, you have lots to keep you busy at your house, Parker! Too bad your Mommy wasn't fast enough to get a picture of Vishus Deer! Maybe she could've had him pose next to Siegfried or Roy!

It looks like Puff chose that carpet to match her lovely furs. She should win, paws down!

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Oh your deck looks so nice to lay on and my bro Tommy says mom's hands taste like chicken too. She tried unsuccessfully to trim Tommy's nails for the past two days and her right hand had bite and scratch marks all over...but now it has bandaids all over!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Holy Moly!!!! You comment thingy came up for us today! We visit every day but haven't been able to get the comment box, it would keep timing out.
You Thursday 13 are very interesting. We'd like to see your mom on a cat chase some day!

Sandy M said...

You keep laughing and putting that mousie in mom's shoes and clothes. You know she really loves it! Very good post! Happy TT!

PB & J said...

We love the mousie in the slipper trick, it's one of our favorites. What a great T13!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

wow! you have lotsa stuff going on.

First, Rudy, jump and grab, jump and grab. Next, Diamond, we'll send Bendrix with you. He just went yesterday and it was a visit no one will forget. My mommy doesn't have slippers, she is a sock fiend tho.

Mommy wishes she could bike but it it NOT allowed with her back and hip. She thinks she may start walking tho.

We're heading over to vote now!

Wow what a week! You mom makes her own salsa cool! My momma gets hers from a special place 'cus she is allergic to tomatoes. They make one for her with apples she likes and another one with a fruit called a tomatillo. I like it cus because I get to eat chips. :) ~Queen Snickers

Mr. Echo said...

Hee hee, I bin givin Mommy a hard time with the shoutin pitchurs too! Insted of shouting I'm beein a "littelschitt". If sumkitty had a contest for that I'm sure I kood do well cuz I get called that a lot. Also, I hope Rudy gits that catnip!

Kelly Cat said...

Lots of fun for you guys. How do you find time to take naps?

In that top photo, is someone tickling your tummy? I don't understand why you're putting the bite on the hand -- I love love love me some tummy rubs!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Puff is looking delightfully puffy : ) I hope she wins too.

I liked your T13 this week, it was very informative.

I am being difficult jumping and shouting too. When my Mum tries to get me to jump I just sit there and look at her and pretend I don't know what she is saying he, he, he...

Tybalt said...

What an awesome glam shot of Puff!

We'll have to give that mousie in the slipper thing a try . . . hee hee!
~Holly and Ivy

Daisy said...

I am very impressed and proud of your mom for riding her bike to work!

The Crew said...

Regarding #5, you have to remember where you hide the mousie and watch carefully for her to put her slippers on. Otherwise you'll miss all the fun!

The Furry Kids said...

You guys sure have been busy! I totally think Puff could win the contest. She's definitely furry.

Love,
Tazo

Wow, Parker, I love #10. Delivery service.
Thank you so much for the beautiful champagne glasses on Catsy. That was so thoughtful. Maybe we can get some of KC's tuna champagne and have a toast together.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me a Happy Birthday and Gotcha Day.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Oh my goodness, Puff is gorgeous! All of you are. And it sounds like all kinds of interesting things are going on at your house. *giggling* at Rudy plotting and scheming -- Dorydoo is the same way! Momma says it's just about impossible to outsmart her.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

We loved it when you said dinner was being delivered. Puff is beautiful in that picture. We are sorry you are having a sticky thing come to the house, and tell Rudy that one good jump should do it for the catnip.

Re #8. Has your Mom tried HAM? I'm afraid she's starving you, Parker. That's cat abuse, you know!

My Mommy says dat fruit in the salsa sounds like a really good idea! But I agree wif you... dere needs to be some tuna salsa, mommies!
