Staycation Shennanigins

 Hello everyone!  A quick post today from Winston Kitty.   Emily and I decided to take turns telling you about our escapades during Mom's recent staycation.   Once she settled into vacation mode our Mom stopped cleaning and organizing most of the time and decided to take some walks to the park.
 Since it was so hot, with the humidex the temperature was 42C, Mom went to the park at 7:30 in the morning.  She said there were lots of joggers and people walking their woofies.  The temperatures were still "pleasant" at this time.
 More little flowers from Mom's walk.
 This pillow is at the vet's office.  It is the "famous" painting of "cat with a pearl earring."  Our Mom likes art and so this pillow spoke to her soul.   (Winston kitty rolling his eyes now!)
 Mom also went out for lunch with some friends.  She finally caved into a craving she had for a hamburger.  It was so delicious, and so filling, that she took off the top bun or she would not have been able to finish it.

Canada Day and Cotton Candy Fur

 Hello!  Winston kitty here.  Mom says I have a slightly peeved expression in this photo.  Really, Mom, can you blame me?!   I have stuff I want to tell people and you refuse to write up our blog posts.  All I get from you are excuses: too tired, too busy, I burned my hand!
Anyway, here were finally be and, other than feeling miffed about Mom,  I am happy to be here.
First off:  Happy Canada Day to our Canadian felines and readers!

 Yeah!   We got a long weekend to spend with Mom!   Plus she is on vacation!  Happy purrs.  Emily and I now have more precious time to ignore/annoy Mom.
 Mom had a visit from our Grandmum last month.  They went out to their favourite coffee shop, Williams, for a blueberry scone and a chai tea latte.   Mom is ridiculously happy about chai tea!
 Spring was late in coming this year.   Mom saw these Lilies of the Valley flowers on a recent walk.   Spring may have been late in coming but now summer is here.  We hope everyone stays cool.
Well, on to Emily for now!
 Happy purrs from Emily.  I hope Winston wasn't too miffed at the beginning.  It is true that Mom was sadly negligent in our blog posts.  She really did burn the fingers of her left hand.  She got blisters and everything!  It is mostly healed now, though, and it looks like she has a sunburn on her fingers.   Guess what?  Mom bought new shoes.   Her delightfully middle-aged feet were demanding more support and she had to forgo cute shoes for more practical footwear.  She finally decided on a pair of running shoes from Brooks.

 Now she has a bit more spring to her step when she walks to the grocery store.

 Mom celebrated Canada Day with one butter tart.  She really wanted to try poutine but couldn't find a restaurant close by that served it.
 This is a photo of me at the vet's office.  I am trying to keep Mom entertained by getting at least a mat a week.  The vet says my fur is very fine and mats easily.  Dr. B. says I have cotton candy fur.  In fact, I have another appointment this week!
 So far, Mom has spent most of her vacation tidying and cleaning.  She always seems it difficult to wind down.  Hey, Mom, look at me just chilling on the sofa and follow my lead.  Only don't take my spot on the sofa.  The sofa is mine!

Winston Kitty Fun Facts (and a tiny bit of Emily stuff)

 Hello!  It's Winston.  I don't think I've ever told you some "fun" facts about me!   It might not be a deep, dark secret type of stuff but I think I am a fascinating feline.   Cuddle down.
 I love my vittles.   My favourite treat is Tuna flavoured Temptations.   I inhale those like a feline vacuum cleaner.
 Mom "adopted" me from a family member 13 years ago.   I used to live with somebody else.   I was having a fine old time being a frisky kitten but for some reason, their woofie decided NOT to like me.  I mean what was wrong with that woofie.  I am adorable.   I came to live with Mom here in the city.   Before I had to be locked up in the bathroom when that grumpy old woofy was around.  I have lots more room to whoop it up now.
 I am a sports orientated feline.   I love to whop the kitty catnip roll.  I also LOVE to play kitty cat floor hockey.
 Boxes are my friend.  If I have to, I will steal them away from Emily.
 Hi!  It's Emily.  Has Winston bored you to tears yet?   I hope you all are having a great week.
 Here I am again.  I think I look quite a ladylike in this photo.
 Stop laughing at me, Winston!
 Sometimes Winston and I get into "tiffs".  Here I am whupping his behind.  Girls rule!
 Underneath all the chasing and the tussling, we are quite fond of each other.

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!
