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 bunny.
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!!!

TUESDAY TALE

SUBTITLE:
THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE FUNNY

THE GOOD
As you might recall, I gave mom some time off for good behavior last weekend.  They went to see my human sis and BIL and Harley cat. (FYI:  BIL is doing fabulously, driving, working full time and feeling good) . This makes us all happy.

I spent my time sleeping and watching from my upper chambers for them to return



NO PICTURES BUT A MOST EXCITING HAPPENING

Sunday Morning THE PEEPS WALKED ON THE BEACH FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. THE ENTIRE Time THEY WERE WALKING THEY SAW THREE DOLPHIN pods!  Probably a total of 30 dolphins all together.  The first pod was the most entertaining DAD estimated the closest ones were 20 to 30 yards from shore.   They jumped and played one spun in the air exposing his gorgeous white tummy.  Mom said she and Dad were like toddlers wide eyed and squealing.  Never in all their years have they seen that many dolphins in the ocean at one time. Mom had the camera but she said their was no way she could have captured the show. She said she took pictures with her mind's eye, 

 THE BAD

My DAD is a traitor seems Harley loves him...
 and evidently Dad has an affection for Harley cause he rubbed him into a trance.  There will be demerits for treason!!
First one was on Monday I DID NOT help Dad Shower!!

 THE FUNNY
Mom and Dad took a walk on the beach where 
they met up with Granddaddy Long legs fishing 

AND
OMCs a big eyed critter on the half shell.
MOL MOL  mom thinks she is so funny but she is in trouble too
'cause she had Essence of Harley all over her.
Actually a wave just washed over the shell leaving 
bubbles on it and lo and behold Mom mom just had to snap it.
 Last but surely not least this crazy  warning sign.
Mom said she about fell out of the car when she saw it.
Never in all her years has she ever seen an official 
Duck and baby crossing sign.  There were two on this road
at Atlantic Beach, NC
I just hope and purr the mama duck doesn't try to cross anywhere 
else.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY: MARG

TODAY APRIL 9, 2014 IS THE BIRTHDAY OF A DEAR FRIEND AND LOVER OF ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL


Most deserving

Animal lover

Ready to help

Great friend

Many of you may not know Marg so we are

reposting Meet my Cabinet  interview with

 her in July of 2013.  
MOM AND I ALSO THANK MS. MARG FOR WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES ON NUMEROUS AUCTIONS TO RAISE MONEY FOR ANIMALS IN NEED.
COMMISSIONERS OF ANIMAL HUSBANDRY

1.  Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait.
Our Person's name is Marg and she is just plain old. Her special trait is just plain taking care of animals and trying to find homes for homeless animals. So we have lots of cats here since there just isn't anywhere else for them to live. Most of them were born at the neighbors and the Momma kitty was a very feral kitty and so the kittens were getting feral too, so she fed them all and eventually grabbed the kittens and brought them home. Then a neighbor found four little kittens under the hood of their car, so they came here too. Then one neighbor moved away and left their two cats, so guess who had to feed them. 
For this interview, we will just mention some of the cats that live here. 



2. If you had an alter ego , who would you like to be and why.
 Hi there Mahoney here, and I kind of like just who I am. I was rescued from a house that had been abandoned and so I am just very happy to have a roof over my head and lots of good food to eat. And the love is passed out a lot here. I have some great toys too.

3.What do you like best/ least about where you live??
Mahoney here again, I like it here because my Mom Maggie lives here with us and that silly Two Two lives here too and we play all the time.We have the best time charging around the house and pestering the Person. I can't think of anything I don't like. We have the Person all trained to feed us at least every 30 seconds.

4.Who are some peeps/furineds you would like to meet and why??
We would all like to meet Madi and her Mom for sure just because they are such special peeps and kitties. We just think it would be fun to meet any of the bloggers. 

5. If you could give one piece of random advice, what would it be??

Hi there, Momma kitty here, and I have several pieces of advice. If you should run across a feral colony of 
kitties, please try to Trap, Neuter and return them so they will be spayed and neutered and not be able to 
reproduce. I had three litters of kittens and luckily Marg has kept them but other wise they probably would 
have died. Feral cats are not bad cats and can make really nice pets with a lot of patience from the peeps. I 
finally got caught and do not allow touching, but I follow the Person everywhere she goes. 

6. What do you do for fun?
Hi there Two Two here, and I spend the day having fun. I will just bat anything I can find all over the 
house. It can be a little piece of dust or just anything. I have a favorite toy too that I talk to and carry it 
all over the house too. I just plain enjoy life. 

Hi there, I am Joe, the donkey and I live here with my buddy Smoke and our favorite thing to do for fun is to pick up the buckets in our pasture and just carry them all over the place. 

7.  What is the first thing you do each morning??
Maggie here, it is my job at 5 A.M. to wake the Person up so she can feed us. I wake her up by walking 
round and round her head. Finally she does get up and gets busy feeding all of us. I do this every morning. 

8. What is the first thing you notice about a new friend??
Mahoney here, the first thing I notice when one of the cats comes in the house from the outside world is how they smell. Our Person always looks for a good sense of humor in a person.  Our dog Ande, just loves everyone and is not fussy so she doesn't take much notice of anything.

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name?? 
We were all rescued from around the neighborhood since no one else wanted us. So we have a large family. We mostly got our names from the color of our furs. Ohs is Orange, Bees is Black, Tees is tabby, Black is Black and so on. Mahoney was named after the very nice person that drove our Mom to Chemo and her last name was Mahoney. Maggie was named after the name of our vet clinic which was Magnolia and Maggie for short. Our person is not very good at naming kitties.


10.What is your absolute favorite food??
Missy here, and my favorite food is canned chicken. It is so yummy. 

Bonus question. 
How many animal languages does the Person speak? 
She does have a ton of languages that she speaks. She meows, woofs, and neighs and hee haws. She does not get them mixed up since the animals would not be happy creatures if she did.
Who would you say could be named Mr/Mrs. Congeniality?We really don't have a Mr/Mrs congeniality here. Most of us are cats and cats just are not friendly with other 
cats. Maggie and Mahoney love each other, but Mahoney will go after any stranger that comes in the house.

TUESDAY TALE

Saturday mom passed through the FOYER several times
each time she found me looking up...Looking up is contagious.  In a matter of seconds mom looked up too.  Once she determined there were no BUGS she squeals like a little girl when she sees bugs up there, she took 87 pictures of me looking up.  BUT we are only showing you three

I stared at the door for about 5 minutes.
 never moving or blinking.  Finally Mom 
decided to see if there was something outside
 She found all kinds of twigs and grass and debris on the
porch

 Lo and behold Mrs. Brown headed Nuthatch was trying to make a nest on the 2" ledge above the door.  Mom and I love Bird TV but there are many reasons we cannot have a bird nest over our front door.

1.Mom and Dad come in and out of that door a gazillion times a day 2.Mom said what if an itty bitty birdie egg falls on my head 
3.Even worse what if it poops on my head.

She swept the debris off the ledge 3 times.
She nearly used up all the ram on her hard drive trying to 
think of a way to convince Tweety Pie that this real estate
in off limits



You know they say Necessity is the Mother of Invention
You'll never believe the Invention my Mother came up with
Sunday afternoon Mom hung several curly ribbons on the ledge.  She said when the wind blows the motion of the ribbon would keep the birds away. 
The picture below was taken Monday morning. 
Now the birdbrain is trying to make a nest in both corners.

Mom came up with another solution covering the entire
transom window and ledge with a plastic bag.
We will let you know if this works. 
In the meantime Mom says visitors are going
to get a chuckle out of this.

In order to be close to the action, I've been sitting in the foyer.
I can here you all saying WHY IS THE BOX STILL IN THE FOYER?
ANSWER:  I like the box there.

Mom says she and Dad own the house
but I own their hearts...
  Sometimes I come running
down the stairs and making a flying leap onto the box!!
