Mancat Monday with sisfur Sadie

Saturday it was furry nice here, so mom opened up da back door and put da folding chair der so we could look out. We haf perches in almost effury window in dis house and dey was all open but da skwerrels and birdies were all out in da back yard and dis was da best spot to watch from. Sadie joined me on da chair so I hadda say hello, it's rude not to.

I saw dad wif da camera and gave him da evil eye, it din't work, he kept taking pikshers.
Der was a leef on da porch, I thawt it was a mouse...my mistake. Sadie was watching Zippy. Zippy goes outside on a leash (like a woofie) wif mom.

Sadie was sleeping in some towels fresh from da dryer before dis, she smelled really good...

I don't know what I was looking at here, prolly dad's feet, he kept moving around.

Sadie is looking down da stairs cuz da dryer pinged, meaning dat der were more warm towels ready to come out of da dryer. Sadie has a thing fur towels fresh from da dryer. Even on a warm day.

Dis was da really exciting part...a skwerrel came right up on our porch!

Dis time I told daddy to stop wif da pikshers and he lissened, finally.

Mom haf been really bizzy lately. She leaves us in da morning after feeding, washing bums, brushing, paw streching and litter cleaning. She goes to dat shelter and cleans litters and kitty condos or shovels doggy poops or whatever needs to be done. Den she comes home, usually around lunch time, and feeds dad. Dad makes her think he's been starving all morning but she sees da dirty pans and stuff from when he made breakfast. Besides, he don't even get out of bed till almost 10 am! Den after lunch and some kitty snuggles she goes walkabout, kinda like Jeter does. ::what mom? dat's when yoo go see Mrs T? Okay:: Well, dat makes a little more sense, mom walks to da assisted living center, which is about 8 blocks from here, to see Mrs T. Den she comes home and makes dinner. Sometimes we get to visit a few frends and comment, sometimes we just visit but don't comment. If we don't comment we can find out more of what's been happening wif our frends cuz we can read more blogs so don't think we is not visiting yoo, we sure are, we is just not leaving a lot of comments. Anyway, after a month and a half of doing this every day, our house looks like a bomb went off. Der is at least a inch of dust on everything, da kitchen floor looks like a rawr-shock test and da carpets are gray wif our furs. Since dad never does anything mom is taking a couple of days off to catch up on house cleaning. Dis means we won't be allowed on da computer until maybe later at night when she is too tired to clean anymore. It also means we is gonna hafta go hide cuz we don't like da sucky monster or all da banging around she does when she starts getting mad dat dad haf stuck boxes of light bulbs in corners of da living room, kitchen, gest room...oh, just effurywhere! And he's still on a rant about mom getting a job. She already haf a job taking care of him (okay, and us) and dat is more den full time.

It's nice that you had a sunny day and could enjoy all the happenings outside!

We're surprised that your mom doesn't ask you guys to help her do all that cleaning. Us cats are so good at helping! ;-)

The stuff you described in your window sounds a lot more exciting than those TV's. We hope your Mom can slow down a bit soon.

We are sorry that your mum is so rushed off her feet. What's up wiv your dad wanting her to do even more work? Can't he see she's got more than enuff to do now?

Fluffy and Bonkers said...

I love it when the weather get nice, so I can watch all the critters outside. I just wish I could go out and join them or chase them.

Angel said...

We knows how much time it takes to visit and we understand! If Mom went back to work, she would not have time to visit so many friends! maybe she will take breaks and snuggle with you!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

It is hard to keep up with everything. I am glad you guys are enjoying some fresh air. We are hoping to get some around here soon too!

It must be a very exciting view from the window!

The Crew said...

Mom is convinced that our dad's must be long lost brothers or something! She says all he does is make messes & all she does is clean up after him.

Speedy dear, why don't you come over this afternoon. Bring Zippy & Sadie and we can watch birdies & squirrels.

Love,
Misty

We have a door on our deck that has windows all the way to the floor. I can just sit there and look out at all the birds in the backyard. The door is right next to my food dishes too, so I can snack while I watch.

I don't help with the cleaning. At my age, I have a hard enuf time keeping myself clean!

Daisy said...

I think your mom needs some relaxing "Me" time!

Camie's Kitties said...

Your mom is really busy taking care of the kitties and woofies at the shelter, and then taking care of you and your dad. We miss you when you aren't here, but understand that your mom has an important job to do helping at the shelter and with her friend.

Poppy Q said...

What a great place to sit and watch the outside happenings.

I am very lucky, I have my own special cat door and I can go in and out as I please.

We don't have any squirrels in NZ, I would love it if somebuddy would send me one.

Cat with a garden said...

Watching squirrels must be so exciting! We think you should put the bitey on your dad and make him help your mom more - it does sound unfair to us...

Angus Mhor said...

Gee Whiz! Your mom is very, very busy! She doesn't have time for a job! Not only that, she already HAS one! Does that dad have a job? Besides makin' messes, I mean. He needs to get up early and go out to the shelter with your mom-it'd be good for him!

michico*Adan said...

That is so nice sharing free sunny time with family, isn't it?
I hope you could share some comfy to your busy mommy.
Big big hugs~!

Sweet Praline said...

That's a pretty good idea of your mom putting the chair up where you can see outside!

Your mom sounds very, very busy!

Looks like a lot of fun you're having at the screen door. Spring is such a good time to watch the outdoor activities.
