MOP AND GLO

IS WHAT MOM SHOUTED THE OTHER DAY.


 BEING A MATURE AND WISE DIVA
I KNEW THAT MEANT WORK

SHE WAS JUST A TAD BIT EXCITED, FOR SOME REASON
SHE HAD TROUBLE FINDING THE MOP AND GLO 
THEY CHANGED THE BOTTLE COLOR 
 SO I GAVE MOM'S TOOLS MY SNIFF OF APPROVAL
I TOLD HER TO BE SURE TO USE LOTS OF 
ELBOW GREASE AND CALL ME WHEN THE FLOORS 
ARE DRY
I HEADED FOR MY DIVA SUITE ON THE 2ND FLOOR
I'M A DIVA AND DIVAS DON'T DO FLOORS
ESPECIALLY ALL OF OURS.
MOM DOES THE WOOD FLOORS IN SECTIONS

COMMOTION


I was taking my ninth nap of the day when I was rudely awakened that happens a lot of course I had to check it out.

Mom said something about it being new shredder.  I told her 
it looked dead to me!! She assured me it had fallen but it

could get UP. I gave it a sniff then all of a sudden 
I spied something wonderful
THE   BOX
(I HEART BOXES!!!)
it was deep wonderful 
and had the most amazing smells

after all that sniffing it was time to resume my nap

 You might recall a post from last week with me sitting on a box 
(click here if you missed  it) that had been in the foyer for 87 years (BTW: it contains a file cabinet)!!  You know what? it is still there.  Yep Mom said she had to open the shredder box first so that she could get rid of old papers before she fills up the new file cabinet.
I would like to personally thank you for all the kind comments
about Madi's picture yesterday.  For some unknown reason,
she loves to pose....maybe she was a Super Model in another 
life.
Hugs 
Mom

P.S.  THE SHREDDER IS KEPT IN OUR INDOOR STORAGE
ROOM BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND IS UNPLUGGED

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY (almost)


Once again mom was out of the office unexpectedly yesterday.
She went to take some more things to my Grandma and 
lo and behold when she got there the senior ladies were having a chair aerobic class.  Mom told me she sat her tush down in a chair to pawticipate and she had a great time!!!

MEET MY CABINET: DERRY AND NICKI


Today's interview features my 

Resident wrestlers: 
NICKI AND DERRY
very handsome man cats from Canada

Did you know that mayors in Canada are called
YOUR WORSHIP?
OMCs I had no clue.  Mom says my head is going to 
swell big time?

1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait.

Nicki: I'm Nicki, I'm 6 years and 7 months old now, and I excel at "helping" around the house. I open closet and bureau drawers and reorganzie the human's clothing, I climb up and inspect the basement plumbing pipes (unfinished basement) and I excel at decluttering (by pushing objects off tables and often breaking them).

Derry: I'm Derry, I'll be 6 on June 24th, and my special trait is catching moths and other flying insects, and looking adorable.

2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why.

Nicki and Derry: Hmmm, we think we're purrfect just as we are!

MADI HERE:  OH BOYS I AGREE YOU ARE PURRFECTION IN MOTION!!!



3. What do you like best/least about where you live

Nicki and Derry: We love having our human servant at our beck and call, we love our tiny enclosed garden because we can hang out there all summer, but OMC, we really don't like winters! They last forever and are desperately cold and miserable.

4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why.

Nicki and Derry: That's tough! We've made a lot of wonderful fur friends over our several years around the CB and we don't think we could decide. Though we think it would be pawsome to visit where we could run through the fields and explore!

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

Nicki: If you're looking for "adventure" (read mischief), don't let your human know by always meowing "your fool head off" (her words) first.
Derry: Look as adorable as possible and make tiny meows. You can get away with anything!

6. What do you do for fun:

Nicki: Help around the house (see #1). Hang out in our garden. Play with Mr. Stick (i.e. any long stick or stick end of a wand toy).
Derry: Hang out in our garden. Catch moths and butterflies and even, sometimes, a damselfly (crunchy goodness!) Play with a long feathered wand toy or with the dot (laser light)!

7. What is the first thing you do each morning?

Nicki: I make sure the human is up by 4:15AM (often earlier), 365 days a year (no exaggeration), by getting up close to her and singing to her in dulcet tones (i.e. screaming as loudly as possible). Then we get our measly 1TBSP of kibble and then get to go out into our garden!

Derry: I help Nicki get the human up by making pitiful meowing sounds that activate her maternal/protective reflex. The truth is, Nicki's screaming only annoys her, but she can't resist my plaintive meows! And then I get to have my 1 TBSP of kibble and get to go out.

8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend?

Nicki & Derry: On the other side of our fence it would be their smell. In cyber space, it's definitely their personality!

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.

Nicki and Derry: We both were adopted, at different times, from the Gananoque Humane Society via a now-closed pet store that had a satellite adoption centre for the shelter.

Nicki adds: I was adopted on April 12, 2007. The human had been in some time prior to that, took one look at me and said, "There's Nicki." She knew she would adopt a "Nicki" at some point, and when she saw me, knew I was it! I had an eye infection, though, and so had to wait a week or two before I could go to my forever home.

Derry adds: I was adopted on December 21, 2007. She had gone on a lunch hour to check out the adoptable cats, looking for another young cat as a companion to Nicki, and I was the one who climbed up into her lap for attention and cuddles. Sucker!!! As for my name, the human was trying to think of names ending with a long "e" sound and for some reason Derry came to mind and wouldn't be dismissed. It's Irish, of course, and she finds it odd that it ever popped into her head in the first place, since she has an aversion to things Irish. (She claims it must be due to bad past life experience.)

10. What is your absolute favorite food?

Nicki: Ummm, Temptations. And also kibble. And stinky goodness. And yogurt. And ham.

Derry: Temptations. Kibble. One brand/flavour of stinky goodness if you sprinkle enough FortiFlora on it.

Bonus:

Derry and Nicki as your title states you are the resident wrestlers.  Please tell us which one of you is most likely to start a wrestling match and what it takes to get your ready to rumble!!  Also do you consider yourselves feather weight wrestlers?

Nicki and Derry: We actually both take turns starting the wrestling matches, and we're both pretty well matched. It does take a lot of limbering up, though, with careful stretching, some cardio (zoomies around the house or yard first), and of course lots and lots (and lots) of sleep in between matches. As for considering ourselves "featherweight" wrestlers...er....well....middleweight (our human says heavyweight!) might be more applicable.

Thank you, Your Worship (an honourific prefix for mayors in most Commonwealth countries), for including us in your cabinet. We feel privileged to be the Resident Wrestlers, and looking forward to serving you to the best of our abilities!

Derry and Nicki we thank you for excellent interview!!!
