Catnip Tea?

 It's a lazy Sunday for me!   Mostly I've been enthroned on my my new scratching tower but sometimes I like to lie on the chair.  We hope everyone is well!   Are you enjoying spring?
Our daffodils are mostly gone now.  Mom thinks they are very cheerful.

 The tulips seem to be peaking though.  Our Mom likes the pink ones best.
 Recently Mom went out with a friend and she had such yummy scones.  It was a flavor she had never tried before: lime and coconut
 Greetings from Winston!  While Emily seems to enjoy flowers and scones, I tend to be more interested in the small furry creatures Mom sees on her walks.
For instance...these tiny ducklings!

 Or this bunny!   I'm a pretty fierce cat.   I think I could "tag" this bunny.
 We felines also continue to be spoiled by our Grandmum.   Here is another toy that Miss Pearl didn't like.   Another score for us!  It makes a wonderful racket!  There is a tiny blue ball that you can whap and it goes round in a circle.  It's the most fun to whap in the middle of the night.   Ooopss....sorry Mum!
 Sometimes our adorable feline antics might make the Mom feel a bit frazzled so she drinks a bit of tea.   Personally, I don't see why she finds it so relaxing!   I'm investigating and there is no catnip in here!  Emily and I find catnip very relaxing....

Holiday Monday

 Hello.   Can you tell it's me?  Emily?  I'm doing my flirty upside down look.   You are supposed to be distracted by my cute face and not notice I'm on the table.
 Mom was happy to be able to visit a beautiful garden this past week!   Lots of lilacs, dogwood
and more lilacs!'s Winston investigating Mom's tea cup.   Mom has been going on lots of visits and walks this past week.  It wasn't all just cleaning on her time off.  Remember when we mentioned she keeps seeing other cats.  Well, it hasn't stopped.
 Mom said this kitty, who I think looks a bit grumpy, actually started meowing at her and wanted to be cuddled.   *sigh*
 Mom also saw these ducks on a recent walk to the park.  There were six ducklings all together.   Emily and I were very intrigued. 
 I'm going to close with one more flower photo.   We hope everyone had a nice weekend.  If you are a Canadian kitty, we wish you a nice Victoria Day.   Emily doesn't like Victoria Day.  The sound of the fire crackers frighten her!

May Staycation

 Hello.  It's Emily enjoying the view from the credenza in the dining room.   The Mom person is on vacation but I'm not sure she realizes that yet.   She has been cleaning up a storm.  Doesn't she know that when I am forced to move so she can do laundry or dust that I get stressed!
So, OK,  maybe she has done a couple of things on her vacation.  She went to see a movie on Sunday night.  It's a documentary about street cats living in Turkey, it's called Kedi.  

 Mom said it was interesting even though subtitles were a bit of a challenge.  She also said that it was sometimes hard for her to see the situation of the street cats.   The people who lived there took care of them with food, shelter etc but it was still a rough life for them.
Guess what else?  The Mom was able to buy a lemon scone at the theater!  The girl behind the concession stand even let her have a cup of tap water!  Kitties--I fear that my Mom may be prissy.
Who eats a scone during a movie!
 Anyway---I'll pass things on to Winston now!
Hi there!  Do you see this fabulous scratching post?   Our "grandmum" gave it to us.  Her kitty, Miss Pearl, used to like it but then lost interest.   Score for us!  We LOVE it!
Mom also went on a drive with some friends to a restaurant on Monday.
 The restaurant was about 40 minutes away through the most beautiful country side!
 Mom even saw horses!   She said May is one of the most beautiful months.
 The restaurant was very nice, too!  After that they went shopping for a good long while.  The Mom said she got to cross a lot of items from her shopping list.  Only guess what.....she was exhausted after.  She had fun visiting and shopping but she had to rest the entire day after!  Don't worry because Emily  and I took good care of her.
 The sunset on an evening walk.
 A beautiful Magnolia tree...they are starting to fad now.
Guess what else kitties?!  It's me.   Emily.
Mom did buy me a toy!  A tiny little gopher with a fuzzy tail!

Gerbils, Flirting and Wet Snow!

 Hello from Winston.  This is my grumpy good morning face.   This face lets Mom know she really needs to get up ...sooner rather than later!   Mom says I look adorable even when I have a grouchy face!
Emily and I are wishing a happy birthday to Spencer, who turned 18, just a bit ago.  Mom went to her friend's house for a visit.  Spencer was, apparently, very affectionate.....hmpf....
 He doesn't look 18 years old, does he?
 That cheeky senior gave our Mom head bops.....We will excuse this blatant feline affection only because it is his birthday.
 Guess what else what at the friend's house?   Gerbils!   The gray one is Chip and the black one is Scotty.   Emily and I wish that Mom would get us gerbil tv!
 Hi!  It's Emily now.  I'm snoopervsing in the dining room.   What would Mom do without me and my helpful guarding and watching....I shudder to think!
 We have had a lot of rain...three days of it.  Thankfully, we haven't had flooding.   Today for the first time...we had a beautiful blue sky and wet snow!
