Cats on Tuesday: Fresh Lucy of Bel Air

I was having a wonderful dream...

I dreamt I went to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air's* mansion to play in the front yard...

*For my friends outside of the US, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air was a popular TV show in the early 1990's that starred Will Smith. It was centered around this mansion in Bel Air, which is right next to Beverly Hills, California. We saw this mansion as well as many others on a tour of Hollywood stars' homes earlier this year.

Hi Friends,
Mama woke me up to do my blog post. I just want to wish you a happy Monday in spite of it being Monday. 

I played at-one-with-the-sheet this weekend. It was very relaxing.

Weekend Plans

I'm just waiting on Mama to finish the laundry.  Until then, I wanted to wish you a happy weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. Naps and sunshine are on my to-do list. I am also hoping to get some treats. A girl can wish, can't she?

All About Me

I won an award from my dear friend from France, Malyss.  She has two wonderful blogs: Chronicles from the Shore and Benches on My Way.  Also, very importantly, she has two wonderful kitties, Jim and Chestnut (Chataigne). They're French too!
I now have to share seven things about me that hopefully I haven't already shared:
  1. There is no greater threat or violent act than having the air above my ears bitten.
  2. I only hang out in the my bedroom.  I come out only to use the litterbox, eat and go out on the patio. 
  3. I loved to be combed.
  4. My chin is always itchy, and I usually have scabs on it from scratching it too much.
  5. I don't meow much, but I do what Mama calls squawks and tummy meows (do you know what those are?). I also purr a lot.
  6. I LOVE deli meat.
  7. I'm sweet during the day and tart (sometimes) in the evening.  Hence, Mama calls me her sweettart.
I know that a lot of you have received this award, and for those who haven't, you certainly deserve it.  Mama and I enjoy all of your blogs.  Please feel free to pick this up and have fun!

Cats on Tuesday: An Order

We interrupt this nap to bring you this breaking news: There are some pets out there that are underappreciated. You are hereby instructed to drop what you're doing and hug your pet(s).  If you don't have a pet, hug a loved one.

As you were.

I Love a Good Box

I always hear about the delivery person bringing fun packages to some of my blogging friends.  It's pretty rare that I get a package (actually, it's a cold day in July before I get mail).  Well, the other day I got one (and it's a hot day in August)!  This wonderful box came from Amazon.  Strangely, it had some weird-looking things in it, but as soon as Papa removed them, he gave me my very own box.
 A box makes a good chin scratcher too.

I highly recommend getting a box.  They're very fun to sit in, and the younger kitties like to play in them too.  I can personally attest that Amazon is a great place to get a box, but I've heard there are many other places to get boxes too (Mama says she'd like to get me a box from Saks Fifth Avenue but said I best not hold my breath).

Hooray for Friday!

Mama has been working some long hours lately.  I pretty much sleep all day with a few eating interludes, but I like to play in the evening. The great thing about Mama is that she almost always plays with me in the evening no matter how late it is or how tired she is.  I'm playing with Ratsie's tail in the above picture.

Happy weekend, friends!

It's a Great Life Thursday

Hi there.  Friends, it doesn't get much better than this.  Papa vacuumed today.  Normally, my double-decker bed is on the floor, but he put it up on the bed so he could vacuum.  When I was done hiding from the loud, hideous vacuum beast, I hopped up into my triple-decker bed and haven't left since.  I highly recommend this.

Fun on a Wednesday

An empty drawer...
..or a fun hiding spot?

Monday's Business

I'll be conducting all business from my bed today.  I suggest you all do the same.

If you need me, you know where to reach me...but please don't!

Wild Wednesday

Whenever I come in from being out in the hot sun all day, I stretch out and cool off.  I'm a lioness, tired from hunting all day.
Just kidding.  I'm just waiting on Mama to open my can of stinky goodness.

Happy Monday

Hi Friends,
I’ve missed you so much! Mama has been working a lot more than usual and hasn’t had time to help me with my blog. On top of that, she had the nerve to tell me that maybe if I did more than lie in my bed or her bed, I’d have more interesting pictures. Hmph. Maybe if she did something more interesting than work all the time, she could have her own blog.

Well, this weekend Mama and Papa went into Philadelphia to see a Renoir exhibit. Of course, I stayed home and enjoyed some me time. I also enjoyed some clean sheets after laundry time, sunshine on my patio and stealing some of Simba’s food. I’m not boring; I just enjoy the simple pleasures.
