Garden Tour

IZA:  We are a bit late today, so I will be conducting the Garden Tour today AND tomorrow.  All the flowers will look the same both days after all, and it is really our first big flower day of the year.

We are at the last of the Crocuses, but they are some of the fanciest ones and we love them...
The front yard box has suddenly sprung (Springed?) into flower.  This is the 1st wave of 2 varieties.  Having an early variety AND a late one makes things look colorful almost a month longer.
These first ones are REALLY colorful (the late ones are white, but fragrant).
There are some Hyacinths blooming.   There used to be a LOT more, but the voles find the bulbs eventually.  We are planning to plant more next Fall in wire cages.  It amuses me to think of the voles trying desperately to get at them in cages.  With anny luck, some of the voles will some to the surface to complain and I can grab a couple, MOL
And a nother few...
The oldest Daffodils in The Big Circle are getting ready to  bloom.  I can't wait to be photographed among the pretty flowers.  Nothing like really good flowers to make a woncancat look great!
Here are some other Crocuses.  These are the last of the early kind.  TBT says that is because they must have been planted deeper so it took longer than usual to SPRING from the dirt.
And old Daffodil planting survived the leveling of the old ivy-covered ridge.  Sometimes it is wunnerful to see the oldest ones return.
The 1st early Tulip is up.  I was suprised.  There are more emerging...
And of course I have to show off the emerging Nip!  There are at least a paws-worth of places, but this is the best so far.

Now lets see what Marley has chosen for our snacks up on the warm deck...  Minced Poached Chickie Breast and Cream.  Good start to the Season, Marley!  We have Good Basics to enjoy...

Thank you all SO MUCH for coming along on our Garden Tour this 1st Big Week!

IZA - I'm gonna take a nap now through the night though...

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  The Sisfurs are lovin the heated mat.  But I know ya cant beat The Lap!
 The Lap has contours ta drape over, ya know?  And the smell of security.  That is really impawtant.

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  It was steak night.  I wanted the plate more than Iza did.  I won.
That's not how it usually goes, but I win sometimes.
And Im sure not gonna complain.  It was a VERY food steak-fat on the plate.  Del Monico, I think.
TBT likes good steaks...  And so do I.  A Princess knows the good stuff!

Dangerous Game

AYLA:  Sometimes ya just gotta live on the edge, right?
Iffen it moves, bat it an see what happens.
I spent the rest of the afternoon hiding in the bedroom.  But it was WORTH it, MOL!

Freaky Friday

IZA:  Sorry, TBT!  Ya gotta be faster than that ta catch me playin with the Turbo Trak sometimes...

For those not familiar with Cat Math:

Cat Speed divided by Attention Span minus FindCamera times TurnOn plus Click = TooLate

Womancat Wensday

IZA:  I sometimes get really annoyed when TBT sits down in front of the TV but WONT let me on his lap.  So what if he is eating his dinner.  I want to be close to THAT too!  I mean, just because I grabbed a "small" chicken thigh and ran off with it once (and let's not mention the steak incident), he is suspicious. 

And apparently, just sitting on the arms of the chair isnt good enough.  The right one seems to be the wrong one too.  He complains that I get in the way of him cutting up his meats because his elbow keeps bumping into me.

So I get on the left arm of the chair and that doesnt make him much happier.  Whats wrong with me leaning over as close as I can get?  There is just no satisfying him sometimes!

So after enough times of being hurled cruelly aside [TBT: picked up with care and being set gently on the floor and stroked], I eventually give up and find what comfort I can.

This time, I discovered his shoe makes a pretty good pillow!
Ya take what ya can get sometimes...

Hut Tuesday

AYLA:  Some of you suggested I should try the large hut they saw Marley in a while back.  So I did.
It is inneresting.   A bit large though, and closer to the floor, which I dont like as much.
I even left once and returned at night.  TBT tried a couple pictures, but he was a bit far away.  He mainly just wanted to show that I had returned.
And he liked the laser eyes in the dark.
But I went back to my preferred hut and let him get nearer ta take a better picture.  You know, ta show which one I really like best.
Purrfect size fer ME!

Introoder Monday

IZA:  Our Nip is gowing again!  Not much yet, but it is low and easy ta roll on!
Naturally, there being little of it, I rolled with my head right on it.

I got both sides good so I could smell it REAL well.
But Im not the only one who detected it.  An introoder came to roll on it too a sundown.  TBT tried to sneak out real quiet, but he was already running away.  Introoder cats are cautious in our yards.  They know there are 3 of us of course so they dont want to start anny fights.

Yeah, its a lousy picture, but that is the best TBTs camera can do.
Well, it was completely across the yard AND it was getting dark (to TBT) and his camera.  WE could see him quite well ourselfs of course...

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  You dont often see me on TBTs lap.  It can get kinna busy there and the bedroom is my regular domain annyway.  But sometimes I come out and spend some time there.

This time, even though Iza was already there, I decided ta get up and see if there was room for me too.  Not like I take up much space...
Iza wasnt exactly THRILLED, but she was too comfy to complain much.  She did mutter "Don't get too squirmy", but left it at that.  
I managed ta sit still fer about 10 minutes.  I was happy, TBT was happy, Iza wasnt UNhappy.  Then I decided I had had enough lap and Iza-touching, and left.  I dont like ta overdo things...

Caturday Saturday Product Review

AYLA:  Iza was napping elsewhere (she finally pried herself up off the new Art Of Paw heated mat), so I decided ta give it a try.  Now, you all know the floor is NOT my favrit place ta be.  So I just sat there carefully at first waiting for Iza ta come by an chase me away.
But she dint, and after looking around a bit (and enjoying the warmth), I started to relax. 
This is NICE!
Mebbe I should try napping on it...
 Ooh, more warms!
So I started ta settle right on it good.
I could get used ta this, floor level or not.
I could tell TBT was there taking pictures.  
But I decided ta ignore it.  I mean this really IS comfy...
I got up a few times for food and litterbox visits, but I kept coming back.
I feel warm now.
So I did some grooming.
Gotta have the furs all smooth for when I turn over, tight?
Lick, lick, nibble out a few fur tangles, etc...
Remember, if you want one, go to and if you mention "marksmews" you get a 15% discount.  We get nothing from that.  Well, the mat, but we already have that, MOL!
