See you soon with Malou!

Malou, " I was in the laundry basket ready , able and willing to help put the clean laundry away when what to my wondrous ears did appear?!" 

Malou, " Daddyman's words that held no cheer! He said LP would be away for a while and that we were on our own starting today!"

Malou, " Kindred spirits , I desperately need your help. If anybuddy can, get here pronto and join me in this madness of abandonment !!  This trashing pawty invitation is open to each and every critter that ever was. Come one , come all!  It will be unparalleled, transcendental, unsurpassed, heroic! It will be very, very good ! I can feel it! "

P. S. Here are a few pics of flowers that are now in our garden. We hope everything survives when LP is away since we don't know how to use the watering hose!

See you when LP returns home.
We will miss you!

One Way ticket with Esme.

 Esme, " I am on the bed in the spare room. LP has gently placed a soft blanket on me on account I like to burrow in them like the tiniest of bunnies."

 Esme, " I am looking like a delicious gumdrop, good enough to gobble up, says LP. But I see that thing dangling in front of me as LP click, click, clicks away. It is its' usual unresponsive, unfeeling, indifferent self. I tell it to get lost but it continues to wave back in forth in front of me, taunting me to react."

Esme, " "Can you glimpse it to your left? In the lower left corner? And then my paw, winged and with breakneck speed, as if on cue and with absolutely no bloodshed or carnage . . . "

 Esme, " Got you! "

Esme, " Now you will pay Camera String. "

Esme, " Gnaw, gnaw, gnaw. Chew, chomp, munch, crunch! Nibble. Nibble. You just bought yourself a one-way ticket to the morgue!"

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Duffy suspects something is in the air.

Duffy, " Something is up!"

Duffy, " I noticed the dreaded suitcase was pulled out when on my usual LP patrol, watching her every infinitesimal undertaking and deed!"

Duffy, "It is apparent she will be leaving us soon. I can smell it in the air!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Mitalee: Queen of the Boxes.

 Mitalee, " Some of you may recall that I am Queen of the Boxes here at the cottage."

Mitalee, " I am a lucky Queen because Daddyman often brings boxes home. They are all just for me. Yes they most certainly are, you need only ask him ! This one is a perfect fit!"

Mitalee, " Boxes are the tool of my imagination."

Mitalee, " Right now I am driving a nice little sport's car on my way to a mouse race. Can you envision it?!"

Mitalee, " Now I am at the spa getting my nails done and listening to polite admiration. I am flattered!"

Mitalee, " Here I am daydreaming about hunting rare and delectable birds. In my daydream, I am the greatest bird huntress in all the world, near and far! I have won world wide acclaim for my hunting prowess. And now I am accepting a magnificent trophy for my skill and expertise."

Mitalee, " Boxes are also good for photo opts. Here I am with my ears cut off."

Mitalee, " Here I am looking a bit blasé! I hope you get to have fun in a box once in while.  I feel time spent in a box is never wasted!"

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

Run for cover with Levon.

 Levon, " I was quietly lying on the carpet enjoying a bit of afternoon sun when , "You know who", showed up!"

Levon, " So I darted under the wicker chair for cover. I literally ran for cover to get away from , "You know who"!

Levon, " But "You know who" actually followed me! Geesh. I have to make a little confession. . . . I'm going to be happy to get a break from, "You know who" next week . . . but those of you who are going to Blog Paws , had better run for cover when you see her approaching. She is truly relentless!! "

Have  great day!
See you soon.

Red Robin and Isadora.

 Isadora, " I see you waaaay up there in the tree ,  Mr. Red Robin."

                                                               Mr. Red Robin.

 Isadora, " Mr. Red Robin is puffing out his chest and acting all proud like. I think he is making himself look bigger to trick me into thinking he has good , strong genes for breeding. Or maybe he is warning other males to stay away from me because he wants me all to himself!"

             Mr. Red Robin puffing out his chest to look bigger.

           Isadora, " Either way, I've never had a birdie flirt with me before!"

Isadora, " Here I am with LP after Mr. Muddled Robin flirted with me. She has her cowgirl boots on. She claims she is preparing for Blog Paws which takes place in Nashville this year . She hopes to see a lot of our furiends there. None of us gets to go because it is too far away. How rude! I am going to try hiding in her suitcase. I am very tiny and she is not very bright and probably won't notice!"

Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.
