Summer Toys!







 Malou , " Hmmm. Sniff. Sniff. Sniff. We've got mail!"








Malou , " It's the summer toys The Celestial Kitties sent us. They are having a fundraiser for a worthwhile cause if you want to check it out."










 Mitalee , " I spy with my little eye...."









 Mitalee , " . . . something that looks like a tasty birdie . . . "









 Mitalee , " And then , faster than the speed of light . . .  smack, grab, tackle , toss!"









 Levon , " Bop, bop, bop, bop, shakity, shakity , shake , shake , shake! "








 Malou , " That's right little mousie. You're under MY paw now!"








 LP, " Later that morning , while still sitting in the Forever Christmas Box , Malou remains , " on guard" with the new mousie by her side. But not for long! "









 LP , " When along comes Mitalee who now has it under HER paw! "









 Queen Mitalee HoneyBee , " Well . . . what did you expect? Afterall, I AM the QUEEN!! "






P.S. Esme slept through all the excitement!






Thank you Andrea for all your hard work and the lovely toys.
Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you Monday.

If you can't beat 'em . . .





 Malou , " It's quiet and Levon isn't stuck to my side as usual. I like it."










 Malou , " I have a wee moment to myself."









 Malou , " Did you hear something?!"










 Malou , " He's behind me , isn't he?!"










 Levon , " I've got your back Malou!  Heehee. I'm sooo funny!"










 Malou , " I knew it wouldn't be long before he was by my side."










 Malou , " I guess if I can't beat him. . ."










Malou , " I'll join him! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."












Have a Wonderful Day!
See you soon.

Leo's Garden Rights.





 Leo , " I'm not much of a complainer. . .  BUT I believe I should tell you something. My garden rights were utterly forfeited while LP was away."











 Leo, " No outside garden rights for me and what's more, no BALCONY rights! Yup. No one wanted to let me out onto my balcony either. They were afraid I would FALL. Who do they think I am a LION or a MOUSE?!!"












 Leo , " I have been personally assured that I will be allowed a forage into the garden this week. I will get my usually competent yet evidently fallible secretary to take photos for you."













Leo, " I can't wait to be amongst the greenery and flowers! I see you sweet dhalia. You are calling out my name."











                                                  A sweet, kitty speaking dhalia awaiting Leo's presence in the garden.












Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon!

We are back!





 Esme , " LP arrived home over the weekend. I indignantly turned my back to her. At first."








 Esme , " Then she mentioned visiting her old friend from her university days."








 Esme , " And she said I could post a few photos of her trip on the blog. "









 Esme , "This photo is of LP and her good friend of many, many years. They are at a pottery studio."







 Esme , " And these are LP's friend's children. LP claims they are the human version of the kittenbabies. Can you see it in their faces?!"








 Esme , " LP saw a huge metal teepee when she was in Alberta."









 Esme , "Each circle at the teepee's base had a drawing on it. Below are three of the ten drawings."


































Esme , " LP and the children drew often together during the visit. Here are two of their drawings which are now displayed in LP's home. "








 Esme , " LP said she enjoyed spending time with her old friend and her children very much."









Esme , " But she was happy to come home to us and we are happy to have her home! We will be visiting and catching up with you this week. Promise!"








Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Malou's Plan.






 Malou , " Yup. Esme was telling the truth. The rectangle on wheels has come out of storage!"








 Malou , " It's pretty big , actually."









 Malou , " I bet there would be room for a little cat like me in there."











Malou , " If I snoopervise effectively, I can hop in at the very last moment when no one is watching!"











Malou , " What could LP possibly say once we landed and she saw me tucked in amongst her clothes? Go home?!!"









 Malou , " She would be stuck with me!!  I could tag along and have a barrel of fun ! "










Malou , " I'll need to start practicing. I'm going to make myself small and insignificant. Then I will fit into that travelling cat case , effortlessly! Alberta! Here we come!!"









Have a great day!
See you soon.
