So You’ve Got What!?

What the cream cheese?!   I’m serious.  My mom and dad do not find trouble.  Trouble finds them.  I’m serious.  You don’t believe me?  Okay.  Let me show you.

This is exhibit A.  This is a real book in the book store written by Ira Alterman. You see it was all innocent.  Mom and dad went to a vintage book store to find us anipals some new reading material for our bedtime stories.  That is when dad found this book.  Mom and dad had a fit and laughed like little kids.  I mean I don’t know what the big deal is really.

And no they didn’t buy the book.  Can you believe it was $100.00?!  Mom said they could keep the fat pussy.  Snorts!

What at is the craziest book title you have ever seen?

Paw Time with Houdini


Oh friends – come closer.  See that toy mom is holding in her little paw?  It will be the death of me.  Mom/dad bought it for me last weekend because I’ve been a good boy and they thought I needed another outlook for all of my energy besides chasing Hemi.  I thought chasing Hemi was just fine but I was wrong.  This toy.. this toy is “it”.

You see it’s like a pyramid and then there’s that amazing tennis ball inside of the pyramid.  I have tried *everything* – and I mean *everything* – to get that ball out of the pyramid.  It mocks me.  I can lick it.  I can put my snout in between the slats and sniff it – even touch it.  But I.can’t.not.get.the.ball.out!

I spent all day the first day walking around with this contraption in my mouth, barking at it, chasing it and demanding for that ball to GET OUT.  But it wouldn’t.  Mom says that the ball is working.  I don’t understand that.  The ball is NOT working.  It won’t get out and play with me.   You just don’t understand the frustration.  Mom even took a video of me with said ball.  You will even see my ‘cave’ under the chaise. I made this cave by pulling the blankie down and moving the ottoman closer.  It’s my private place.  We all need one of those, right?  I hope you see how difficult that ball is being.

Afterwards, make sure you check out Jokes with Daddy.  It’s a classic today.  Thanks my friends!

Do a Grouch a Favor Day

.

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

.

February 16th is Do a Grouch a Favor Day.  Do it today and make the world a better place!

Everyone has been a grouch at some point in their lives.  Some people are occasionally grouchy while others maintain that grouchy attitude all of the time.  You know who they are.  Sometimes people get grouchy because they are tired, had a bad day and the weather outside is bad.  It doesn’t take much sometimes to put people in a grouchy mood.

Today your goal is to look around for someone that is in a grouchy mood.  Do them a favor that will cheer them up.  Hug them.  Lick them.  Be nice to them.  Bring them the paper.  Buy them a coffee or a doughnut.  You know – do something nice for them to see if you can see a smile on their face.  You can do it.  I know you can!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet General U.S. Grant and General W.T. Sherman

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  General U. S. Grant and General W. T. Sherman

Age:  7 and 5 months

Location:  Southern California USA

Web/Blog Page:  http://threecatyard.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  We came from the same cattery Rhea and Davout came from, although Grant is a British Shorthair. He seemed nice, but Sherman was coming down with a cold and sneezed a few times on the trip from San Diego.  Both were very good and brave.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  We had a different safe room to start than the others had, since Anna has the old one. It has fewer cubbies, but there is a big wood desk you can run under and feel safe. We took to it right away, and soon met Rhea and Davout and like them fine. Sometimes we sleep in safe corners around the house but are coming out.  Grant likes to rub against everyone and Rhea sometimes gives him a swat to make him stop, but he’s working on her patience.  Sherman likes to purr when held, but has things to see and won’t hang out with you for long.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Neither boy has done anything bad or scary. Anna and her hissing doesn’t bother them when they invade her room, but Davout will sometimes pin them down by the scruff to keep them out of her room and upsetting her.  He does this to Rhea too.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Grant tries to beg for extra meals and since they both are growing boys they often get one. Mostly Grant just watches Dad and both follow him around to see what he’s doing.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans are still learning about us like we are learning about them.

General W.T. Sherman

General U.S. Grant


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Beware of the Crocs… and Gators

 What?  Looks innocent – not the kind of “croc” you expected?  Snorts with piggy laughter!

Now that we have the funny out of the way, I want to share with you something I saw on the news.  Have you ever heard of an orange colored alligator?  This picture gets credit to Leroy Burnell/The Post & Courier AP.  It was taken at a retention pond in Hanahan, South Carolina on February 9, 2017.  The gator was on the bank sunning himself.  Strange looking huh?  They are thinking that coloring is due from algae or a pollutant in the water but they are not sure.  I guess Mr. Gator would be all ready for Halloween, you think?  Of course there are some peeps calling Mr. Gator Trumpigator which is kind of a funny in way.  What do you think?

Travels in the South

Hello sweet friends.  How was your Valentine’s Day yesterday?  In honor of the sweetest day of the year, mom/dad shared a little love yesterday as well.  They went out to dinner and afterwards enjoyed this delicious concoction.  And hey, splitting a dessert means half of the calories, right?  But who’s counting calories on Valentine’s Day – snorts.

This lovely creation is called a Margarita Cheesecake which is seasonal special at a local steakhouse called Logan’s Roadhouse.  Now, it’s like other cheesecakes made with cream cheese but it has Logan’s signature margarita blend on the graham cracker crust.  And don’t forget about the sliced strawberries all over the place.  Mom said it was – what was the phrase she used – delightful to the fullest!

So, if you are near a Logan’s Roadhouse, make sure you check it out for this wonderful dessert.  You won’t be disappointed.
