Monday Madi Mews

On Wednesday November 15, 2017 HERE, mom wrote about my solitary confinement in the 
pantry for 6 hours.  Since then I have decided sleeping in my cat stump (too short to be a cat tree) is way more comfy and cozy....
Mom here: I've often posted pics of Madi on level 3 of her cat stump
but Never in 15 3/4 years have I ever seen her in level 1 or 2.
Level 1
 I found her sleeping in it on November 15, 2017.
As I've said she keeps finding new places to sleep and surprise us.
Level 2

Level 3

 Repost from January 2015
just to show you Madi has always been intrigued by the pantry
Repost of the recycle paper bin where I thinks she slept






Note from Mom:  I caught Madi in the Pantry...in order to capture
the photos I used  my iPad some of them aren't very clear!!
But she was clearly searching for something and it had to be documented!!

Welcome to  Caturday art hosted by Athena
See more Caturday Cat Art HERE.

Mom and Dad took a 
Road Trip on Tuesday 11/14/17
They had been  wanting to go for several days but kept waiting for a bright
sunny morning so they could enjoy the leaves along Highway 50 to
Cedar Creek Gallery in Creedmoor, NC. However, each day was dreary with no sun until
late afternoon if at all.  



It was a dreary and cold morning the Gallery had a roaring fire started
Look at that beautiful brickwork and all the pottery


Adorable and unique critter clocks

There is an atrium in the middle of the gallery where bamboo grows like a weed too

Here are some real works of art they saw while browsing.
Mom would have loved to have each of these adorable statues
Armored Pig Bank...that was too funny







 They were getting ready for their Christmas open house which is Today

Look at all the beautiful glass blown ornaments


BUT the main reason the peeps too this trip was for the pumpkins.
Mid October there was a huge pumpkin show.  The peeps wanted to go but they
couldn't get there.  We are a pumpkin lovin' family.
Thank goodness some of the glass pumpkins were still for sale

This one now lives at our house!!

Mol when Mom downloaded the photos she noticed she took a selfie

A good time was had by the peeps and good news is they got home well with time to
feed this Diva her 3rd mini breakfast of the day

Berry Flower Friday and a Freaky Friend

We got nuttin' blooming here at Madi Manor but mom did find some berry purrty
berries and two purple posies for Rosy's Flower Friday.




Before mom retired from Physics she rec'd this crazy bird at a gift exchange.
It is a physics toy. You put a bowl of water in front of him, give him an itty bitty 

kitty whap upside his plastic head tap. 
 Eventually his keeps moving forward until he goes beak first into the water.
Physicists are a fun bunch for sure

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Angel Sammy and brudder Teddy

Today's 4 word challenges are
window, wink, worry wiggle





Today's Poem title is
From my Window
subtitle: You birds better be glad I'm a house cat
by Madison D. Cat 


From my window I spy
birds galore and chippers. 
And of course the nasty squirrels who destroy Dad's 
planters and make him cry.
Often to my surprise and glee my friend the red
Cardinal wink(s) at me as he chows down on sunflower
seeds and suet without a worry.
Me thinks he might not realize a fierce cat I be.
The tiny chickadee is quick to take seed in a flurry.
The chippers are by far the best at scurrying.
The robin and his misses on the ground do roam.
They hop and skip about, their single mission is to quickly find
a worm that wiggles to take home.
