Long Weekend!

 Good morning from Emily!  I am feeling pretty chill in this photo.   My appointment at the vet had to be rescheduled because there is a feline virus going around.   I was supposed to get a needle but, for now, I am in the clear! Woohoo!
Speaking of which....we hope our Canadian friends had a lovely long Victoria Day weekend.   Mom was very excited about this in an exhausted sort of way!  She had to do boring stuff like cleaning and shopping.  However, she also managed to get in some walks in the park.
 A restful park bench.
 A swan swimming the park lake.
 Mom said this tortie feline exuded "catitude"!

Tired purrs from Winston.  Mom doesn't know if her allergies are exceptionally bad this year or if she is catching a cold.  What Emily and I do know is that she is sneezing more than usual.  Monster sneezes which hurt our delicate feline ears.


 Sneezes and watery eyes don't keep her from going on long walks, though.  Here is a beautiful Magnolia Tree.  There was another person, on a bike, also taking a photo at the same time!

Birthday Girl!


 Hello!  Happy Birthday to ME!   It's Emily.  I'm the cheery looking feline on the right wearing the yellow party hat   :)   My birthday was on Monday and Mom actually remembered!

Spring is here!

 Hello.  Sleepy Winston here!  We hope everyone is well.   Emily and I are gearing up for an exciting time next week.  Emily will have a birthday and we KNOW that the Mom has already purchased something for us!  She has this birthday surprise hidden for now.  However, when Emily's birthday rolls around I will be sure to give it a proper feline mauling!
 Spring has finally arrived here!  The weather is warming up though still lots of rain.  Here are some daffodils from Mom's recent walk to the grocery store!
 Contented purr hellos from Emily.  See this tiny kitty cave?   I got it from Grandmum.  Her spoiled cat, Pearl, doesn't like it anymore and we have inherited it!  I love it!  Winston might love it more if he could fit in it!  (Don't tell him I said that!)
 Yes, spring is here and it is official because Mom had to buy some allergy pills!   Mom says it is worth it to see the trees all misting a lovely shade of spring green. 
I am hoping that Mom is ready to spoil me properly next week.  I've been acting extra adorable!  I even hacked up an impressive furball on the carpet so Mom would know I've been thinking of her.

Traitor Felines! (yeah for us!)

 Good morning!  It's Emily cuddling next to Mom's leg this morning.  Mom said she needed to commemorate this cuddle session.  Mom is a real hoot, yes?!
 We hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Our Mom had a long weekend because of Easter.  Only she managed to stay busy the entire weekend.  Not all of the busy was work, though.  The person with jacket, and the blurred out face, is K.   Winston and I love K.   In fact, we both go running towards her when she stops by for a bit.   Our Mom was a tiny bit grumpy about this.  She said we are never THAT happy to see her.  She reminded us that :
she feeds us
cleans our litter
brushes our fur
gives us treats
give us toys
keeps us dry and warm
tries to give us cuddles
AND takes us to the vet (though in our books that is NOT a good thing)
However, K is always so happy to see us that she cries "tears of joy" and sniffles of happiness.   She even has to take something called "allergy" pill before we ask for cuddles.  Does our Mom do that?  NO!  K is the best in our books.
Plus it is fun to keep Mom on her toes.

 Mom, K and M all went out for an Easter morning brunch.   They went to a fancy hotel.  See the lovely fireplace?  Mom said she felt a bit awed there.
 Here is one of the desserts on the table.  Mom didn't eat this, though all of the food she did try was yummy!
 Hello now from Winston.  Yes, Emily and I love K.   At one point, she was giving us both scratches.  It is also true she cries "tears of joy" when she sees us.
Mom also had company on Monday.  Our Grandmum came to see us. 
 They went for a quiet, relaxing walk on a trail.
 There are some very pretty flowers out now.  Mom says this flower is a crocus...
 However, she is not sure what these flowers are called!
A few people asked why the police came knocking on our door almost a month ago.  Well, apparently they received a 911 call from our home.  Mom quickly checked her cell phone but it wasn't a "butt" dial.  The call came from our home phone.   It totally rattled Mom as she had been getting ready for work, wasn't dressed--mascara only on one eye--and refused to let them up when they buzzed.  She realized after that she gave the police a hard time.  In her defence, they didn't identify themselves and it wasn't until Mom asked for their names AND they buzzed for like, the 5th time, that she let them up.  So...we had a discombobulated MOM to deal with!   She has had the phone company over to fix the matter.  (she had been having troubles with her line)
So we hope every feline has a lovely week.  We will close with this funny from Pinterest.  Our Mom could use a chill pill!

Flowers and Felines and Cool Socks

Good morning.  Winston here today.  We hope everyone is doing well.   The weather has been crazy in our area.  One day our Mom needs her coat and boots because it is so cold.
Then the next day the Mom is wishing she could get out her sandals!
Apparently this up and down of temperature is typical of spring weather.  Crazy pants stuff!

Sleepy hellos from Emily.  The Mom is having such an exciting couple of weeks!  Things like the police knocking on our front door!  (Honest, Mom, we are innocent!) to troubles with her phone company and leaking ceilings at work.  However, Winston and I like to remind to try and take things in stride.   We cuddle.  We nap extra so as to give her a good example!   Really, Winston and I probably deserve a little extra treat, don't you think?
Mom saw these socks recently at a store and wanted so badly to buy them.  However, she recalled that she didn't really "need" them.   (Temptations for us is a better idea!)   Though she did say if they were still at the store the next time she went there it was the universe trying to tell her she should purchase them.

Catching Up

 Good morning!   We hope everyone had a lovely week.   Emily and I are relieved to report that Mom is almost recovered from last week's excitement.   The stitch is gone from her mouth and it hardly hurts at all now when anything touches her face.  Her cold is practically a memory!  Well, except for an impressive lingering cough!
 Mom had a breakfast visit with our "grandmom" last Saturday.  Mom couldn't resist taking a photo of her hot chocolate with whipped cream!
 They did some shopping after their meal.   Mom liked the happy colours of these flowers at the dollar store.
She also finally found a reading lamp for the living room!  This internet image resembles the lamp she bought at the store.

Mom can see much better to read her ever growing stack of books!
 Sleepy hello from Emily!   Mom saw this t-shirt on the internet and fell in love!

Muddled Mom Musings

 Hello from Emily.  If you can believe it Mom was still celebrating her birthday with friends.  Perhaps she overdid it (snort) because she came down with a bad cold.
She did a bit of window shopping:  a pretty autumn mug
 Kitty Mugs
 Unfortunately, it occurred right around the time she needed minor dental surgery.  So she has been "out of things" for a while.  She is sneezy, croaky, tired and achy in the area where she had the extraction.  Don't worry, though, I, Winston, have been nursing her.
The above photo shows me testing out a basket Mom purchased to store in her closet.  Apparently, I'm not allowed to enjoy it.  I still gave it my seal of approval.

 Mom got to try avocado toast for the first time. She said it was delicious and she might try to replicate the recipe at home. This was before her dental visit.  She is enjoying her soft food diet.  She forgot how delicious mashed potatoes could be!!
