April showers and the long awaited nip!

 So-can anyone tell me why Mom finds this comfy sleep position so funny?   Cause she keeps laughing at me...
....but I give her the stink eye till she stops.   Guess what?!
 Mom finally got Oscar his birthday nip!   Hooray!   She took a photo so we could remember that it was in pristine shape at one point in time.
 She then put it next to Oscar on his special towel on the back of the sofa.   He then proceeded to ignore the long awaited toy.   I, however, found it fascinating and sniffed it intently.   Mom refuses to move it.  She consoles herself that Oscar sniffs it at night .

Yawn!   If the nip toy doesn't belong to me it's boring!  The Mom told me she spotted another bunny on her walk home from work the other day.

 Doesn't he look delicious cute!  Mom said he was smunching something.  More flowers are blooming everyday.
 She doesn't know the name of these tiny blooms but the purple blue color is beautiful!  So our Mom worked all weekend and had today (Monday) off.   She took the bus to the mall and came back with some boring human things.  Of course, tea figured in her purchases.  She found a new strainer and some flavored loosed leaf tea from the tea store.   The orange cat mug is not new.   She loves it, though, because it reminds her of Oscar!   A nice lady bought it for her a few years ago.  This lady also likes felines.


 So, we will leave you for another week!   There were raindrops falling down the window this past week.   Thankfully, no snow.
We send you our gentlest head bops!


  1. Oscar will wait until the nip toy is destroyed or missing, and then complain that it's gone. In the meantime, have fun with it, Maggie.

    We had rain, too, a steady day of it yesterday. I and the cats stayed indoors and enjoyed the rain from inside.

  2. Have a great week kitties. Can't believe you did not play with the nip. :)

  3. It's pouring rain and FREEZING here today!

    The purple flowers: We think they're Chionodoxa (Glory of the Snow). Our biped Googled earlier this month when she snapped some pics of her own. Your mum can double-check to see if that's right. :-)

    Aww, Oscar...Well, at least you did get your nip toy in the end, though we're sorry it's not of interest to you at the moment. Lots of purrs and purrayers to you, sweetie.

    BTW, that's a great cat mug, our biped loves it!

    Take care and stay nice and safe and cosy this week. Maybe next week we'll actually have warm temps to stay.

    Purrs and peace.

  4. Am pretty sure the flowers are bluebells, since I have the same in my yard. Glad Oscar finally scored his nip!...and that he's wisely sharing it.

  5. Why would anyone find that sleep position funny??? WE love it. It's Caspurr's favourite position. And Possum, who went before Us, also loved it.

  6. That first photo certainly is adorable! Oscar, we know you will be tempted by that nip eventually...Love the mug! And our Mama also loves tea :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  7. oh you sweetie! I always love the photos here, they are always so charming! We are having more raindrops this week! catchatwithcarenandcody

  8. Great photos. How nice of you to test Oscar's toy for him.
