The Rudy Report

Yawn...Oh, hey kitties! Is it time for the Rudy report?
I guess so! Well first of all it's time for a flower lesson. A few kitties asked us on Saturday if the pretty purple posies that we posted for Photo Hunters (whew! That's a lot of P's for one kitty to say all at once!) really were called Johnny Jump Ups.
They really are! You can read all about them here.
In other O Hi O news, the 'rents went flower shopping. I'm sure there will be a lot of pretty photos to show you in the future. Daddy even planted his tomatoes! He's so proud that he grew them from seeds. Mommy is praying that little bunnies or Tick and Tock don't think that they are the buffet special! She says that bunnies and squirrels love tiny little plants and that Daddy will be very unhappy if his plants get on the critter menu! I don't care as long as they leave my baby Catnip alone!
One last piece of news, I heard the 'rents saying that they are taking a vacation next month. They are going to a place called Lake Tahoe - it is very far from O Hi O and we will have our sitter staying here! Whatever you do, don't tell Parker! You know what a Daddy's girl she is - this is gonna rock her world!
Peace out kitties - this is Rudy signing off...

Where are you in Ohio Parker? We will be in Cincinnati and surrounding in June. Also are there any famous places the folks should photograph for Find Chey Friday?

Hi Rudy! The bunnies have gotten to some of mom's plants already...the plants haven't even had a chance to make it all the way out of the ground yet...and mom's not happy!

Tuck said...

Lake Tahoe is very nice...at least that's what my mom says. I hope the bunnies stay away from your plants. You kitties will have to chase them away!

pughy said...

I wondered about the flower name too, thanks for clearing that up. Sounds like a realy lovely place your folks are going to. I will keep the secret, dont worry.

The bunnies around here would always eat mom's black eyed susans.

Can I say I'm very impressed with you being able to say that second sentence!
We call them Pansies around here, and people plant them in the winter.
Happy Monday to you all.

How many kinds of catnip will you plant this year, Rudy? With all the parties you throw for us, you'll need several kinds! And Catmint, too! Poor Parker, she's such a Daddy's girl..she misses him so.

Cool! Johnny Jump ups are in the same family as pansies! That's why they look so much alike! We hope you like your sitter!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Those are such cute little flowders!
Way too early to plant stuff here. It will be another month for us.

The Meezers said...

Eric and Flynn said...

Poor Parker. Our lips are sealed.
We call them Pansies too, and the smaller ones Violas.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Woo! You got MomBean to snort her lunch-it was pawsome!

Tristan and Crikey said...

We really enjoyed seeing those flowers yesterday:) We call them Violas.

My daughter had planted a couple of acorns in the hopes of bringing an oak tree to my parents to plant in their yard, and I looked outside just as a chipmunk finished nipping off the last one's head. Grrr!

tahoe is a nice place.

The Furry Kids said...

Is it raining in o HI o today? It's super dreary in the Mitten State. Thank you for the orange kitteh and johnny jump up pics to cheer us up. :)

Love,
Tazo

Furkidsmom said...

We hope the bunnies stay away from the garden. Our Mom doesn't worry about bunnies 'cause everything she plants gets deaded from her black thumb!

The Army of Four said...

Woo. I luv that Dave's Garden site. We learn all kinds of cool stuff there.
The bunnies here (Oswald and the bunnies who rent condos from him in OUR yard) have eaten poppies, portulaca, entire tulip bulbs (though it could have been Bambi who ate those....) and three entire Oak Leaf Hydrangea bushes. Mom's trying to figure out what to try to plant this year - or how much Liquid Fence she'll have to douse it all with. Woo, Springtime.
Luv,
Dave
