Announcement




Grandma Lou
March 28, 1928-April 21, 2014
Rest in peace 

Dear friends Mom and I wanted to let you know that my Grandma Lou's fragile health 
took a serious decline over last night.
Mom rec'd a call this morning at 10:30 telling her that Grandma Lou
is very sick and will not recover.
For that reason, we are going to be away for a week or so.
We have put all of my sweet Dad's bday post on draft and will continue them as soon as possible.
Any cards rec'd from today forward will be added and everything posted probably in early May.

MADI MEWS AND #1 CARD REVEAL

When in the presence of a pawparazzi
give her your best stinky eye.  If that doesn't work,


Give her the back of disrespect.
This is my head only sun puddle between 12:30 and 1.

WE ARE GIVING MY SWEET DAD A CARD SHOWER IN HONOR OF HIS BIG BIRTHDAY ON 4/27/14.
STARTING TODAY WE WILL BE SHOWING PICTURES OF SECTIONS OF CARDS TO DATE.
ON SUNDAY 4/27/14 WE'LL SHOW ALL THE CARDS
AGAIN AND GIVE YOU A FINAL COUNT.

MY SWEET DAD IS HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME
LOOKING AT ALL YOUR CARDS AND WE 
ALL THANK YOU FOR MAKING HIS 
BIRTHDAY MONTH OF APRIL VERY SPECIAL

HAPPY EASTER


I am pleased as pink punch to join

What a fun idea and we hope you enjoy 
Mini Madi, Madi and friends on their hunt.
Mini Madi tracked these giant paw prints 

 to a huge petrified egg but it was too big for her mini mouth
  Her keen kitty sense of smell then lead her and her two mini
pals to a duck with a multicolored egg but the 
duck was not ready to lay her egg  so
Mini Madi kept sniffing and searching until she
found a teeny tiny Easter basket full of 
teeny tiny treats just for her.  She was happy
as could be finally something she could eat.


****************************
 I, Madi, was taking itty bitty kitty nap.  When 
lo and behold, I awoke to find
eggs everywhere and no clue who laid them 
or why they laid them....hopefully it wasn't me!!
 All of a sudden this critter, of unknown 
origin, appeared with a basket of eggs...surely I
must be dreaming
 But another sniff and a blink and I was
joined by mini me showing me her goodies
Such nonsense, I refused to pawticipate.
There was something very interesting outside
When I turned back around I found a 
Purple Peter Cottontail.  Now I'm sure I'm dreaming....


I shook my head and slowly opened by eyes
and was delighted to learn it was indeed a dream
all the mini critters, baskets, petrified eggs,
the critter of unknown origin and Purple Peter Cottontail
were gone.  That new nip is stronger than I thought....I
must use it sparingly from now on.
Sincerely 
Madi

Ranger has been looking for the real Easter Bunny
This adorable little guy was our  2012 EASTER BUNNY

It was the best year we ever had for real bunnies in our yard.
Mama bunny had a nest under our deck.  Mom even
left out baby carrots.  We enjoyed watching them nibble.
Sadly we have not had bunnies in the yard since 2012.

Thursday Tale

IT IS MY JOB TO SEE 
THAT MOM EATS ALL THE 
LITTLE 
(cheeri)O's


I take that responsibility very
seriously.  However, I never ever steal them out of
her bowl BUTT if one falls off the spoon
IT IS MINE.
FYI:  the 360 stand is for Mom's iPad.
She plays WWF while eating breakfast and lots of 
o's miss her mouth!!

Easter BOX from OZ


OH MY CATS WHILE I WAS TAKING MY
100TH NAP YESTERDAY AN EASTER BOX
FROM OZ APPEARED AT MY HOUSE from
There was also a birthday card in it for my Dad's 
Bday Card Shower.

The Easter Box was full of goodies and fun.
Both of my Peeps are Choco-holics so needless to 
say they were delighted to see the Chocolate Easter Bilby.
MOM AND DAD HAD NEVER TASTED TIM TAM BISCUITS BUT THEY TOLD ME TO SAY DOUBLE YUM THEY TASTE JUST LIKE HEATH BARS THEY WERE SMACKING THEIR LIPS.
My nose spotted the CatNip Crazy mouse lickety split.
I HAD TO WAIT FOR MOM TO CUT IT OFF  paper card

Mom said I could not have taste the Chocolate Bilby
proceeds from each Chocolate Bilby go to help protect 
these little guys!!



but I staged a sneak sniff from the rear.


MY CATNIP MOUSE HAS A RING COMING OUT OF HIS
TUSH....WHEN YOU PULL IT HE RUNS LIKE
HIS TUSH IS ON FIRE. First he was where I'm sniffing
then he was sniffing my tush!!


WATCHING DAD PLAY WITH MY MOBILE
CATNIP MOUSE WAS SO MUCH FUN HE WAS 
ON HIS BELLY PULLING THE STRING.
I DECIDED SHARING WITH HIM
THE BEST!!!


This one shows Dad all over the floor
