We are hiding later tonight.  Not that any sticky noisy kids come around much these days, but they might again, and we dont like that.  Bangin on the door, yellin...  Noisey.  HISS!


But we think we will do a flashback to a previous Halloween with Spitty...


IZA:  OMC!  Ayla and Marley spent 2 days out in the garage settin up a "Scarey Halloween Haunted Tunnel" just for Spitty and Me to esperience!  I had NO idea, but they told me to invite my lovey boyfriend Spitty over fer a BIG SURPRISE.

I dint know about the ceiling over the garage.  But Marley did.

They say they got all kinna really scarey stuff in there.  And Spitty is here now, SO HERE WE GO!

It started out easy.  An EVIL SKWERL...

And a (Shudder)  empty food bowl! 
I wasnt sure I wanted to go further, but Spitty said to be brave, so I did my best.  It helped that he was right there by my side...
He is SUCH a manly cat!!!  I feel so SAFE when he is around.

Then we saw terrible things!  A Crazy Cat Lady grabbing cats from ALL over.

And the grim Needle-Vader!
And "It" probes yer nether parts too!

We fell down in horror together!  We CLUNG in fear!
Well, actally, THAT part was good...  Holding tight to Spitty is very nice...


JUST when we thought it was all over...  THE SHOWER!!!

We weren't certain about it, but then it went and MOVED and we got SOAKED!  Oh it was awful...  No place to run an hide!  We ran farther down the ceiling tunnel only to find THIS in our way!

It was a scary undedded Voodoo Woman Zombie!
  and her pet RAT! 
We backed away fast, holding each other tight (Spitty no doubt to protect me), but that sent us straight into a defleshicated cat skeleton,
and a GIANT RAT that must have EATEN it!
We were both about discombuberated by then and I think I fainted on a (convenient) pillow. 
But Spitty, Kingly mancat that he is, stood guard over me until I came back to my senses!

And TOGETHER, we went forward!!!

Only to turn a small corner and see...
Oh crap, and I mean that literally!!!  We both fell apart fer a second and scrabbled fer the exit.  But we found each others paws as we went! 

What?  You thought we were gonna get together an fight THAT?  Just US?  Are you NUTS? Look at that Skwerl blood on its teefs (I HOPE that is just skwerl blood).

We low-tailed it outta there!  Ayla and Marley were laffin their butts off as we ran out.  They asked iffen we liked the funny ghosties and smiley pumpkins they set in there.

"Funny ghosties, smiley pumpkins"?  We said what we saw, an they both went pale.  Spitty backed me up and ya gotta trust SPITTY!  Well, Ayla's choclate ears went grayish, and Marley's pinky paws went white.

When I described bein grabbed by the Zombie lady and Spitty was right there an couldn't even SEE it, Marley and Ayla yelped!

They KNEW something was gone all wrong!

Marley started ta poke his head up into the ceiling tunnel, but a strange hiss in there poofed his tail  bigger than a 2 foot-long pine cone an he backed down REAL quiet...

We figure Ayla and Marley tapped into another dimension.  Some eleventieth dimension beyond that which is known to cat. A dimension as vast as space and timeless as the days between meals when yer lost in a desert!  In the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of cat's fears and the summit of our knowledge.  Somewhere in the ceiling of our garage...  

Come visit it iffen you DARE...

WE wont ever again...

WE plan to just stay curled up UTB tonight and forget about it as best we are able.  

 Iffen YOU go in, dont assume you will come out.  There were pathways in there we DINT take...
Well, dont say we dint warn ya...


We have never gone in there again and don't plan to.

Easy Like Sunday

We collect in early morning of mid evening mostly.  TBT likes to watch TV then to see what happened while he was asleep or outside.

And whenever HE sits down, we collect too.
Ayla has been grabbing the lap lately.
She laffs at Izas lasers.
So Iza pretends she didnt try...

Caturday Saturday And TBT

Well, sometimes TBT accidently gets hisself into our pictures.  We allow it, so long as it isnt too often.  An we think it was deliberate.  But he wasnt looking "especially bad, so...

We GOTTA include him once in a while, or he feels all left out.  You KNOW how Beins get sometimes...

Thursday Garden Tour

IZA:  Oh hi, I'm relaxin on the deck.
 Sun on the carpet is wunnerful.
But I have a tour to manage...  Ok, getting up.
First, we have the colossal marigold still doing fine.  TBT saved a lot of seed heads to see if they will grow next year.
The Mums are doing well.  They were all "clearance" a month ago.  Actually, they are spread around the deck, but TBT brought them all together fer the picture.
The Salvias are still blooming.  Ya might see some butterflies around migrating south.  Try not ta bat them.   I know, I know, it is hard ta resist. 
The Endive lettuce is doing great!   TBT snips off a whole plant each evening ta add to his (yuccky) salads, but they just keep growing back.
The Autumn Joy Sedums are about as red as they can be.  I love those things.  Nothin bothers them.  Ans I think they can be divided and multipled this year.
 The meadow flowers are nearly done, but a few are still blooming.  When the flowers dry, TBT will shake all the seeds loose in a BIG bowl, and then scaterr them around the bed.  I hope some will bloom again next year!  The more the merrier...
I think, iffen TBT does it right, next year will have more flowers than this year.  More is better, right?  Like treats.
A twofer!
But most are fading.  These are the last blooms of these.  
 Blanket flowers, I think.    We can use more of these.  They're gorgeous!
The old mums in the veggie garden are gone for the year.  They were super orange!  I've advised TBT to move them and the ones on the deck to real dirt in the flowerbed.  They all need more space to  prosper and thrive.  Wait, didn't I hear that on the TV recently?
Well,  that was more that I expected to find at this late date.

So let's go back up to the deck and see what Ayla and Marley have gooteen fer our snacks...

OMC, we have STEAK!  Rare too.  It looks shaved thin and chopped fer easy eating.  And GRAVY?  They have outdone themselves this time.  Fer drinks, it seems we have plain water for anny kitts, crushed NIP leaves in chickie broth AND cream fer adults.  Be still my beating heart!

Thank you all for coming along on our Garden Tour.

Wensday Deck

MARLEY:  I mentioned (well, Ayla did) that I dont like walking on dry crunchy leafs cause it ruins my hunting technique.

So TBT used the noisy air blower to push them all off.

Is he good or WHAT?

Tuesday Surprise

AYLA:  Yeah, TBT was sure surprised when I hopped up on his lap. 
 I don't do it often...
Well, usually, Iza is up there, and sometimes Marley.  But the lap was empty fer once and up I went.
He was thrilled.  And didn't so much a wiggle fer 25 minutes.  I liked that.   I was so pleased, I played with my tail.
Even caught it a couple times.  It helps to have a Really Long Tail.
But you can only do so much with a tail.  I let it rest after a while.
And after another 15 minutes, I let TBT move by hopping off.  I don't want him ta get USED to me being on his lap of course.  I don't want to spoil his ecitement when I do...

Monday Surprise

TBT Here:  First, every time we try to get to Catblogosphere, we get:

"Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /home2/morgen/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/email-subscribers/classes/es-register.php on line 1241"

If anykitty has some idea how to stop that, we sure would like to get there again!

Now here is an interesting painting. 

I've had it for decades.  A friend of my Mom painted it.  I always thought it was mice fighting cats with swords.  But I was looking at it today and realized the lines from the mice weren't swords but arms. 

They're DANCING among the cats!  Sometimes you just change perspective and gain it too.

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  MOSTLY EASY annyway...  TBT washed all our napping towels but left them in the basket.
Well, I dont care WHERE they are, IM gonna nap on them!
REALLY comfy.
She behind me, isnt she?
Iza, you leave me alone!  Im nappin here.
As soon as I got up, TBT folded my special big thick bloo towel and set it up on the shoe rack so I can nap in peace later.
