Freaky Friday

Getting foods sometimes requires drastic measures...

Not saying that WE have to resort to that, but it's good to keep in mind.  Ya know "IF"...

Garden Tour Thursday

IZA: I am sad to say the annuals finally gave up to the frosts of a few nights ago.  I directed TBT's attention to them today and he pulled them up.  I would feel bad about that, but it's their natural life an I gotta respect that. 


On the other hand, looka what he did with the space!  Pansies.  Pretty little faces we will see all winter.  That aint bad!



We got some surprise treats, Ayla says.  I dunno.  "Pork Fat"?  She'll hafta convince me on that one.  And she says she has invented a PiggieNip drink.  I worry about her sometimes...

OMC!  She put Pork Fat, Cream, and Nip leafs inna the blender.  That girlcat is dangerous in the kitchen even when TBT is watchin over her!  I hope it tastes better than it sounds...

Lap, lap, lap.  Hmmm... Um, dont bother me here, I want all of it...  Lap, Lap, Lap...

You made a GALLON, AYLA?  Good.  Lap in, friends, there is plenty.

 And found the Feliway dispenser bottle was EMPTY...

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  I was wanderin around early this morning, and woke TBT up.  Not that that bothers us especially, but sometimes it means the flashy catches us in the act.
I was all sniffin the laundry in this case.
I decided both spots were rather too boring ta sleep on.  Fresh-laundered AND cold.  Nothing inneresting...

When he falls asleep again, Ayla and I will burrow unner the blankies.  Iza will sleep ON the corner of the bed.

There's a reason.  We get chilly at night.  But Iza is so fat she is comfy on top of the blankies...  MOL!

We allus eat at the same spots.
I like to watch the other 2 some, but then I get back to my own bowl and lick it the cleanest!

Tweety Tuesday

MARLEY:  WELL!  I found a nice surprise today...  A birdie who was TOO innerested is gobbling sunflower seeds unner the birdfeeder and TOO near the mound of azalea shrubs I HAPPEN ta like ta sit unner.

I was actally waitin fer a skwerl ta come by, but they seem ta be a lot more cautious than the birdies are.  So, without anny skwerls around, I was more than happy ta play "toss&catch" with a birdie.  But he got tired after a while so I went inside...

Monday Meowing

AYLA:  *sigh*  OK, I admit it.  I SHOULDNT have done it.  I "helped" Iza write what must be (I then did hope) the WORST romantical poem of ALL time just to play a trick on her...

I should have known better!  There is NO SUCH THING as an awful romantical poem.  The value is in the intent, not the quality.  Iza meant every GOOD THOUGHT of her poem (that I messed up as much as possible) with feelings of love.  Never mind the (rather creepy) "my love is like a crippled mouse"  or the "lawn is dead and sere" stuff that I slipped in.  Oh c'mon, she BOUGHT that?

Even I was shocked!

So now I am embarassed.  I played on Izas emotions.  It was like picking goldfishies out of an open crowded tank.  The truly embarrassing thing is that she STILL doesn't quite unnerstand what I did.  Shes only angry in the most vague sense that I did SOMETHING, but she isnt quite sure what.

Iza is a simple soul.  Iffen she was a Bein, she would (according to deep discussions I have had with TBT the past 2 nights) be an "Earth-Mother hippie who trusts everyone and doesn't even comprehend the idea of tricks".  Such a sweet innocent does not deserve that kind of trick...

So it was very nice that Spitty came over yesserday and cuddled with her a while, telling her how much he liked getting a love poem from here (and glaring at me several times).


We all slept together after dinner.  Iza didn't mind at ALL (though I DID stay close ta Marley). 
I dint push a glass of water over on her either.  Ive decided ta be nice ta her fer a while...

Easy Like Sunday

MARLEY and AYLA:  

Iza is making us all look too active today...
She SURE knows
 How to do the Easy!
Ayla:  Hey Marley, ya think a spilled waterglass would have an effect?

Marley:  Already? Yeah, but give me time ta get outside and HIDE.  Nice knowing ya BTW, Ayla...

Caturday Quandry

AYLA:  Well, I wonder iffen it is safe to come down yet.  I've been up here nappin most of the day.
I havent heard Iza stomping around yelling for a while, though.  Mebbe she is about over her anger...
S-T-R-E-T-C-H........  Hmmm, I think I'll wait til dinnertime.  Shes allus easier ta deal with after shes eaten.
Still, that was about the BEST trick Ive EVER gotten her on...

Freaky Grrrrlcat Friday

MARLEY:  Well, Ayla is still stayin up high out of Iza's reach (probly a good idea after the poem trick she played).
I am basically NOT GETTING INVOLVED.  I know when to get out of the way of THOSE two.  Meezers Jeezers!

But I have my fun.  That rainbow squiggle is GREAT!

And its QUIET, which is a good thing right now..  I'll just lay low and stick near TBT.  Nothin bad happens near HIM!

The grrrrls will make up soon enough...

Garden Tour Thursday

MARLEY here:  The girls seem to be having some, um, pouty hissy-fit today, so I think its a good idea ta get outside.  I hope you will allya join me.

I TOLD TBT that things were lookin a bit dreary out in the garden.  The annuals were gone by...
And the Mums dint look too good either...
 So he followed my suggestions.  Pulled up the annuals what were gone fer the year, and left this bare area. 

Hey, he read us a story few nights ago about some wolfie what said "better ta EAT you with, my dear"   Which was kinna cool.  I think it was about mousies inna house.

But it made me think about plantin NEW ones what could stand the Winter.  Like "better ta pull you UP my dears so we can plant new ones".  Well, it made sense when I THOUGHT of it annyway.

But he paid attention to me an pulled all the old dedded ones out.  It looked like this...
So ya know what he did?  Srsly, do you?

Yes, he bought some of those what do like winter, an he planted THEM.  I DID havta help him figure out a pattern.   Im good at patterns...  There are alternatively changed purples and yellows ones there. 
HE thinks its fer the colors, but I have it arranged to attract mousies.

See all those leafs on the ground?  I arranged them that way.  Cause I KNOW what attracts mousies!  And OH BOY, do I find mousies around the flowers!  I hardly have ta eat that stuff inside what Ayla and Iza loves (especially Iza). .  See, I know what they like (leafs littered), an I'm tryin ta expand their range.  More fer me, ya know?

And that means more fer ALLA US!  Today's garden tour treats is MOUSIES!!!  Come join me fer a real feast.  Every 5th leaf or so has a mousie unner it an there are LOTS of leafs! 
Let me show the the great places...

To Spittikins, My Love...

Ayla is helping me send a romantical poem JUST to you my dear one...


"My love is like a crippled mouse
Newly out of hole.
My love is like that crippled mouse
For you to et down whole. 

Ayla, you are SURE this only goes to Spitty?  

"Of COURSE dear sisfur, only HE will see this". 

Um, OK...

For you are plump, my lovely boy
I treasure evry ounce.
And when you are so sure of me,
I know you'll make the pounce.

You said you had a purrsonal address, right, Ayla?

"Yes of course.  When have I ever steered you wrong?... 

Well, since you mention it...

"Not now dear sisfur"... 

When all the lawn is dead and sere,
When all the mousies flee,
I'll stand beside your side my dear,
When all you have is me.

Are you SURE?  I mean, this could be REALLY embarassin... 

Yes, trusssst me.   Heh heh heh...  I mean (cough cough), it will be for Spitty's eyes only! 

So fare thee well, my only love
And fare thee well awhile.
Yet know that in my deepest heart,
I love you like a mile ."

So I just press "here"?  

"Oh yes, please do.  Um I mean, YES that is the button to send yer poem to Spitty and no one else ta see .  In fact, you should probbly not look at the computer screen fer a few days.  Give Spitty time to think about yer poem, ya know?  And don't mention this to TBT either."

Well, only the poem goes, right? None of this talk?  And just to Spitty?  OK...  *click*

Toymice Tuesday


IZA:  TBT says Im infested with toymice! 


I wasn't inclined ta believe him at first.
But to tell the truth, I HAVE been a bit itchy lately.
And I MIGHT have a growing problem...
Do ya think a real soap&water bath will take care of it?

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:   Oh I LOVE Mancat Monday! I get SUCH great attention.  Iza is especially good at it...

Thank you, Iza...
Oh yes!  Thats good...
Take a break.
Um, are you sure about this?  I mean attention is great, but this is gettin a bit purrsonal. 
Feeling awkward here...
OH, wait, she fell asleep (whew).  That's sweet, but I have an evil urge to fart now.  Heh, heh...
OK so I dint.  I wouldnt actally do that to a sisfur!  But it IS tempting.  I'll just be happy with the wash and the warm butt feeling from her breaths.

The secret of gettin along is to not ask for TOO much...

I'll give HER a good washing.

Tomorrow... 

For now, TBT's lap looks comfy.

Awardies

Oh my goodness, we got TWO awardies today!


As a group, we got the new "Nip Awardie" Nerrissa created and The Celestial Kitties passed on to US!   It a lovely one and we are collectively VERY proud to receive it.

We need to mention something we want to celebrate.  We decide to celebrate FOOD!  We know we just posted this picture, but we are STILL ecited, so ..
FOODS!

An THEN I, Marley, got an awardie to ME individually!  I am stunned.  I never got one just fer ME before.  It was from SPITTY!  Its the Nip Awardie too, but this one is just fer ME, so I gotta make it a little different.

That's EASY.  While I like the FOODS, I also like OUTSIDE!  In fact, I wanna go out in the morning even BEFORE I get breakfast.  Ya know why?  Cuz I catch MOUSIES outside and they are BETTER than canned BREAKFAST!  I like MOUSIES better than TREATS!

Now we all gotta figure who ta pass them along to.

We are gonna send The Nip Awardie to:

Katie Isabella
Mr Puddy (Hoping he is still with us)
Prancer Pie
Scarlett and Melly
and 
Eric and Flynn

We would give the awardie to ALL our friends, but TBT said we could only pick 5.
