Isadora in her carrier.

 Isadora, " Here I am near the herb patch in my new carrier. I was recently diagnosed with an enlarged heart so LP and Daddyman bought this carrier so I can go on longer walks and hikes with them without getting too tired."

 Isadora, " I am taking special medications and I am feeling really good now! And of course I enjoy being carried like a princess every once in a while!"

 Isadora, " My Auntie Dominique, LP's sister, is also not feeling well. Did you know I am her very favourite critter in the cottage? On account I have been here the longest and she knows me best! She is going into hospital on Monday the 21st of July to have a big operation."

 Isadora, " It sure would be nice if you could send some sugar and love her way for a fast and easy recovery."

 Isadora, " I know she would really appreciate it. LP will be leaving us to stay with her sister in California. She will be back in two weeks. We are going to be as good as gold while she is away!"

Malou , " Remember to stay chill during our blogging absence all you cool cats out there! Until we meet again!"

Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you in a few weeks.

Leo on his balcony.

 Leo, " We are having a heat wave here in Vancouver. I am going out on my balcony this morning but not for too long! I don't want to get over heated."

 Leo, " I can see the magnolia blooms from here as well as my owl totem pole ."

 Leo, " There are quite a few blooms on the magnolia tree these days."

Leo, " And Mr. Bunny's blooms are also plentiful."

 Leo, " " My owl totem pole sits right next to my balcony. Isn't it sweet?"

 Leo, " LP is going away and I am getting a cat sitter. Just for me. A cat sitter all to myself! Her name is Emma ."

Leo, " I will have to let Emma know that I can't stay out on my balcony for too long in the heat. She won't know that. And I do like to indefinitely bask in the sun. I'll let you know how Emma works out. In case you ever need a cat sitter all to yourself! "

Have a great day!
See you soon.

Two Pairs of Eyes Watching Me.

LP, "Last night I was making myself a bite to eat for dinner, when I felt "someone" staring at me. I looked up (waaaaay up!) and there was Levon on top of the fridge!"

 LP, " I soon realized he had his faithful sidekick with him. Can you just make out a set of ears behind him?"

Malou , " I may be the least obvious of the two watching pairs of eyes. . . . but I keep the closest eye on LP . . .  at all times!"

Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.

The New Forever Christmas Box with Levon.

 Levon , " I am in the new Forever Christmas Box. It's a lot smaller now since LP downsized it. . .  she said the other box was way too big and was in the way! Geez, just when you get used to something being there, it's whisked away!"

 Levon, "The new Forever Christmas Box is a bit small (you have to really squeeze and suck your tummy in to fit...kind of like getting into pants that are a size too small . . .) but in the end it suits me. And some Christmas wrapping paper has been kept  in it. Which is good."

Levon, " I can also see birds through the window from this vantage point."

 Levon , "But regardless of its' size , I really need to still be able to do the most important thing in my Forever Christmas Box!"

Levon , " Sleep! Zzzzzzzz."

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Under The Covers with Malou.

 Malou , " I am under the table . . . "

 Malou , ". . .  on a cushion that has been placed on a chair. The chair has in turn been pushed back under the table."

 Malou , " I am the only one in the cottage who sits here. It is my quiet place."

 Malou, " I can think my thoughts and dream my dreams here."

 Malou, " Until click, click, click , Click-Her finds me. "

Malou , " What can I say? Click-Her is a slow learner , no matter how many times I stick my tongue out at her , she keeps coming back for more!"

Have a great day!
See you soon.

Egg Carton and a Butterfly Bath.

 Esme , " I love when LP puts treats in an egg carton in order for us to fish them out!"

 Esme, "These egg carton pockets have been filled with Party Mix Treats ; shrimp, crab and tuna flavoured treats. Our friends from Twinkletoe Tails sent them to us. Merci! We can't get them here in Canada."

 Esme, " Malou is the House Champion when it comes to fishing treats out of egg carton pockets. She is unbeatable!"

 Esme , " Hmmm.Thankfully she was nice enough to leave a few for me!"

 Esme , " Rats! Here come Mitalee and Levon. Now my chances of getting a few treats have diminished substantially!"

P. S.

 Esme , " Here are photos of our butterfly bath with miniature daisies in it. I love the colour combination of blue and white."

Esme, " These photos were taken at dusk when there was almost no natural light remaining. That's what makes the images appear soft and fresh looking."

Have a Wonderful Day!
See you soon.
