Tidy Cats in Quarantine

 Happy Friday!  Winston kitty here.  I believe it is important to maintain my high standard of cleanliness even during these trying times!
 We hope everyone is coping as best they can.  Mom tries to go for long walks almost every day.  Here is a tiny flower.  She thought it looks like a white violet.  However, our Mom only admires flowers and doesn't grow them.
 Our Mom has also made friends with this tiny little rodent.  Mom says this is a chipmunk and she has called him Francis.   She gives Francis peanuts and then he pigs out!  Emily and I would love to meet Francies.

Birthday Girl Celebrations

Greetings!  It is Emily.  I am celebrating my birthday today!
 I was given 5 treats before breakfast!  Woo hoo!  I think a nap is in order.
 Mom found some fresh catnip at a small, locally-owned store yesterday.  (This photo is a few years old and NOT my birthday nip)  She gave Winston and me each a small piece.  A few minutes later we both got the zoomies and then got into a tumble and tussle session with each other.  Mom says we can't handle the nip.  :( 
 Winston here.  Yeah, it is Emily's birthday.  The nip is to be shared, though.   Just so everyone is clear!  Mom says that maybe, when things restrictions and quarantine start to ease, then maybe she will look into a new scratch post for the both of us!

Insomnia and Spring

 Snoozy purrs from Winston!  Emily and I don't have insomnia.  The Mom does and she is beside herself!  Emily and I like to give her practical pointers with our most excellent examples.  The rest is up to her!
 Mom tries to go for a walk every day.  She saw this tree covered in beautiful pink blossoms on Sunday.  This is the sort of thing that cheers her heart.
 Mom has also started posting encouraging quotes on her door.  She said she feels a bit silly but it seems like a way to cope.  We think she would cope better if she gave us more treats every day.  Am I right?!
 YAWN!  It is Emily.  Thankfully, Winston and I are not dealing with sleeplessness.  We can only gently nudge Mom to follow our lead.  I have also been extra cuddly.  Mom says cat cuddles are good for the soul.
 Mom's vacuum cleaner decided to quit several weeks ago.  It has been interesting trying to find a cheap solution.  Guess what.  Her Mom dropped off an old handheld vac for her to use on the carpets.  Mom said it "works".   The funny thing is that Winston is afraid of the tiny vacuum but not the large one.  I, Emily, don't mind the small vac at all!
 Winston and I want to share this funny from Pinterest.  Mom had such a crush on MacGyver when she was growing up!
