Guarding the shoes with Mitalee.






 Mitalee, " Hi ya! I'm in the hallway guarding the shoes!"








 Mitalee, " I don't want to say I have a shoe fetish or anything weird like that. It's not like that! Not at all!!"








 Mitalee, " It's just that there are numerous pairs of shoes, some might even say an unreasonable amount of shoes , scattered hither and thither in the hallway, and they all need guarding! You never know what shoes can get up to!"








 Mitalee, "  All these shoes aren't going anywhere under my watch! They are safe with me! You're welcome! You're welcome very much!!"









Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you Sunday for Sunday Selfies.

Eightish Photos of Happiness.




We were challenged by The Daily Pip to display eight photos of happiness on our blog. When considering how many pets we have had and still do have,  to scale down to eight as a number seemed daunting.  So we cheated! Close but no cigar! Teehee. If anyone would like to join in the fun, please do so and link back to us. Here are a few blogs we feel could be up to the challenge but efurryone is welcomed to participate! There is no obligation of course for those "nominated ". It's simply for fun!

2.Angel Prancer Pie
3.The Poupounette
4.Pretinha + Amigos
5.The cat on my head
6.The cats from hell
7.The Swiss Cats
8.The Legacy Chronicles
9.Stillness at Cherith
10. 15 and meowing

Esme in the sky.





 Esme, " I am on my window seat on a new blanket LP bought at the Farmer's Market last weekend."










Esme, " The blanket has bumblebees on it. LP is hoping it will lure Mitalee Honey Bee. Mitalee is afraid of the windowseat. She has only been on it once!"











Esme, " That one time was when LP actually placed her on the window seat. Mitalee stayed on it for the afternoon and seemed to enjoy it but has never been on it since!"










 Mitalee, " And I will never go on it again bumblebee blanket or no bumblebee blanket. I am a steadfast ground dweller!"












Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.










Esme, " Hmmm. I guess that makes me a steadfast sky dweller!"










Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.









Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Levon and the market nip toy.





 Levon, " Is that what I think it is?!!"










Levon, " The old Farmer's Market catnip stuffed toy definitely needed to be replaced!"

                                                CRUNCH! NIBBLE! BITE!










                                      GOB! DROOL! LICK! 












Levon, " There! Now it is all broken in just as I like it!"








Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
