Critters and Rain and Rootbeer

 Good morning from Winston.   We have been busy.   Finally, we are getting some rain.
 Some big rain clouds!
 Sparkling raindrops on grass after the rain.
 Purrs from Oscar.   I love this spot on the sofa.  Mom has taken to putting a folded up pillow case under me.   She changes it far too often.   Then I need to fur it up again!
 Another photo from one of Mom's walks.   This is a rose.
 ...and further proof Mom can't be trusted.  She says hello to every feline she meets!  What is with that.  
 Miss Emily saying hello.   I was tidying up my tail when Mom took this photo.  It looks all blurry, yes?   The rain has been wonderful but it does mean that it's quite humid on some days.   This root beer was a special treat for Mom.  She only gets one a couple of times a year.   Hmmm...a tall frosty mug of sugar.  Yum!

I'm going to close with this cheeky squirrel.  I don't know what is worse--that she talks to strange cats or associates with these cheeky beasts.   It's a good thing we are so forgiving.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.  Don't forget to cuddle your felines.


  1. If you had our squirrel family nearby, your mom might have a few bad words to say to them!

    Those rain clouds were amazing, beautiful. We had a deluge yesterday until early afternoon, so that was great, desperately needed.

    Our biped says she remembers A&W root beer, though it's been longer than she'll admit since she's had one. (Not for reasons of sugar/calories, though.)

    That was a very pretty kitty your mom saw, looks like a dilute tortie, and well-fed too. :-)

    Purrs to you all, we hope the week ahead is kind.

  2. Oh that is a conundrum! Strange felines or cheeky beasts?

  3. Loved your pictures today. You are all looking extra handsome/beautiful, and even Mr. Squirrel is looking good.

  4. Great photos, even the one of the rotten squirrel! Good work Oscar for keeping that cloth furred up so well.

    Have a great week efurrybody!

  5. Looks like your Mummy needs to remember she had to give all her attention to you kitties. lol Have a nice day.

  6. Talking to other kitties is OK, but not to squirrels. :) That root beer looks very refreshing. Nice to see you cuties.

  7. Sorry kitties, we love cats and we like to meet new cats all of the time!

  8. Kitties, squirrels and root beer!!! Nothing better! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  9. How dare Mom speak with other kitties. Of course, our humans do the same thing. ;)

  10. Our mom tends to talk to all the animals she meets, too. In fact, she was talking to chickens, goats, and horses a few weeks ago.
