Sunday Stretch From Friday

MARLEY:  It seems to be my week!  After Iza and ME sett;ed down Fridays, I went into "Crazy Stretchy Mode".  Its both a GREETING to TBT and a TALENT! 
It isn't an invitation for a belly rub.  I don't like that much.  What it IS is a grab paws  and move them around, and a desire ta have my undershoulders scritched.  Which may sound odd, but I like it. 
TBT gives a slow gentle joint massage like you won't believe...  And after a day running around outside, that is very very good...

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY:  OK, so after reading the comments from yesserday, I decided I DID need to be a bit pushy with Iza for space on the otto-man.  She wasn't sure what ta do and neither was I.
So we stood there.
I laid down first and she went for the available space.  *I* was surprised.
She finally found a position next to me where she could sit.
She purred, I purred.  TBT didnt purr, but then he doesnt know how so what doesn't mean a whole lot.  He shows pleasure in other ways.

But we could tell he was happy anyway.

And there are more pictures about this space-sharing TOMORROW!  They ARE all Friday pictures...

Ayla is napping in the bedroom on her accustomed 6 folds of thick towel on the top of the shoe rack...

Freaky Friday

MARLEY:  I still think it is a bit weerd laying up here next to the TV, but it IS warm.   Just not very cushiony.  And TBT says he is not gonna add more towels.
Im gonna have to get a bit more pushy about getting space on the otto-man!  I mean, just LOOK how content Iza is there...

Girlcat Tuesday

AYLA:  It is a lovely day today, 80F and sunny!  I am especially liking the warmed dark grill cover.  I even have a choice of sunny or shady spots.
Plus its a great spot ta watch Iza walking below me on the deck not knowing Im up here...  MOL!

A little grooming first...

Uncomfy Sunday Stroll

IZA:  Im not usually the one to be up on the deck rails.  I mean, I have to find several steps up.    Jumping right up to small narrow places is NOT my talent.

But I do when TBT is near.  I SO want to be near him.  You can all laff, but it matters to ME.   So I was up there today .

He was right next to me, so I wasn't TOO worried.  And he held me, so I wasn't too afraid of the height.  But he DID let go of me while I was there.  I was brave.  I looked around fer any intooders or vishus deer. 

I even stood while he backed off to take a picture!   But then he dint come BACK! 
I sniffed the board to make sure it wouldnt just fall over and take me with it.   But I was still worried about it all.  I mean I actually feel OFF the deck top once just trying to walk on it.  Fortunately, ON to the deck not to the ground side.  I dont know HOW Ayla does it so gracefully.   She NAPS on the high rails!!!
When TBT opened the door, I ran inside for safety.  Oh Spittikins, PLEASE come over and comfort me.   The ground below the deck was like a 1000 feet down!  And I almost FELL OVER.  I need some snuggling and TBT is "busy".

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY:  We had an eciting breakfast today.  The kibble hunt game is usually in the evening, but TBT brought it out early.
I am the best reacher-in...
Iza is good, but she is not as fast or good-grabby.
 Fast-action pic...
 And in I go again.  This is even more fun than the Egg!  That only spills out kibbles when you beat it hard enough.  This puzzle box lets you get at kibbles faster.

Stinky Friday

AYLA:  We had an introoder!  And it made sure we would know it was there.
 It sprayed our pots.
 It sprayed the smoker cover.
It sprayed there BIG TIME!  We are VERY ANNOYED!
TBT says that he needs ta water the deck pots today, so he will make sure to rinse off the places we showed him very thoroughly...

Garden Tour Thursday

AYLA:  Welcome to our Garden Tour!  I am leading the tour today...

The Pinwheel Zinnias are looking good.
The other pots are still doing pretty well.  It is nice to see the whole group.  And notice we have 2 new pots!
TBT brought these orange Mums from Walmart a couple of weeks ago when there were only closed buds on them and they have exploded with flowers!  Here is one of them...
The 3 center pots sure have a lot of color in them.
The hanging baskets are still getting along, Zinnias...
and Marigolds, but the Marigolds are a bit thin.

The Marigolds sure love THIS pot a lot!
And sadly, we had an ACCIDENT yesserday.  This plastic 5 gallon pot is many years old, and was never designed fer hanging.  The rim finally broke where one of the hanger wires were and it fell way to the ground KERBLAM!
We will try ta repot some of the flowers, but the roots dry so fast exposed ta air and it IS late in the season.  So we dont know if they will recover anny.

Well lets see what Iza and Marley have arranged fer snacks.  Ooh today it is all treats.  Differnt flavors and textures.  Hmm, we seem to have crunchie chicken, chewy tuna, crunchy turkey, and soft salmon.  Plus meowgaritas and niptinis...  Im having a few of each, but choose whatever ya like best!

Thank you fer coming on this weeks garden tour!

Girlcat Tuesday

IZA:  What is he doing NOW?

AYLA: Flashies again, I suppose.

IZA:  But it dint flash!

AYLA:  Sometimes he just THINKS at the camera an expects it ta do what he wants.

IZA:  Oh, yeah.  Well good, I dont want the flashies.  My eyes are set on "dark".
IZA:  Oh Bast, he fixed it...
IZA:  OK, Im leaving...   You coming?
AYLA:  Not while I can have the tree ta myself.  heh, heh

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  This is not a usual spot fer me.  In fact, this is as close to "Iza's Spot" as there is in the house.  MY most regular spot in on the Otto Man.  But that's where IZA was nappin an TBT wasnt sittin in the chair.  So I lay down in HER spot.  Its not bad, but I like MY spot better.  Its softer...
TBT doesnt count as "anyone's spot" BTW.  He makes sure we all get our time there.   You dont see Ayla on his lap often cuz he so much moves for the camera she hops right off!

Easy Like Sunday

IZA:  It is just me on the cat trees today.  Ayla took advantage of the open dresser drawer and Marley decided sleeping under the overhang of the waterbed was good.  He's weerd sometimes.  He could sleep on a board.  Ayla also likes the folded towels on the shoe rack or cat tree platforms.  But *I* like to be where I can see TBT when he gets up.

Caturday Saturday

AYLA:  An uneasy peace, or, perhaps, ships passing in the night...

Freaky Friday

AYLA:  TBT has been having camera problems lately.  It seems to get set on weerd settings he can't undo.  He even took the battery out for a day, but it seems to have  small one built-in that saves the settings.  Sometimes he gets video, sometimes, he gets strange effects, and sometimes he can't force it to take macro or flash pictures.

HE thinks it is the camera failing; WE think it is him.

But annyway, he took these pictures of me.  This one is normal of me watching the outdoor front yard (where we are not allowed to go)
This one seems to be slightly color-diminished.
Normal again, it seems.
 Rainbow effect?  TBT couldn't even find that one in the manual.
Not quite black and white OR sepia.  Some odd blend...  Note the tan of the left side tree post.
Normal again...
True black and white...
And he keeps trying out buttons on the camera to make it stop.  What he WANTS the camera to do is go back to normal somehow.  The next step is to smash it with a sledgehammer and buy a new camera.

And BTW, check out TBT's own blog because he is looking for advice about moving or not moving.
