Happy Tuesday from Kat and Pup




Last weekend Kat, Pup and Staff left New Mexico 
for State #8

Dearest Aunty HiC

We’re at Homolovi State Park, in the AZ desert
Mom says the desert sunsets never disappoint. 




I must be in heaven it looks like a giant sandbox to me! Me-Wow!!!😹






Pup keeps a watchful eye out for gray foxes, badgers, prairie dogs, bobcats,  jackrabbits, rattlesnakes, and huge lizards. Oh my!



❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew and Pup your K9 Nephew

Veteran's Day, Awww Monday and Sparks



Here is today's Awww Monday
KAT is going to be guest blogger today
from his front row seat in New Mexico
Where he continues to see amazing new things!!
Take it away Kat 


Guess What Aunty
Yep, we’re still in New Mexico, ha!
the picture Kat sent me is not showing up so here is a recycled one
so you get a sweet imagine of my nephew in your mind's eye.

Guess what I saw today?
Can you see it? You might have to zoom in...
It’s a black-tailed prairie dog!


I said, “Meow-dy”, but I don’t think he understood. 😹
Anyway, it was great entertainment for this Georgia Kitty! 
Bundle up! I hear it’s going to get cold again back East. 


According to an article Mom read:
You know Mom was a teacher before she became mine and Pup's Mom.  She grabs
every moment as a teaching/learning experience.
Here is a tidbit of 
P'doggie info for the readers.
❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew

Prairie dogs have the most complex language of any animal ever studied.  They have over 200 words and can form sentences. Bark, snitch, yap, chirp, yip, chatter, yelp, twitter, chip, squeak, chirrup and woo hoo are all prairie dog sounds that humans can identify.  

Here is today's Sparks Quote


Dearest Nephew 
Your cousin, aka favorite sissy of Angel Madi, feel in love the the Prairie Dogs and Bison while she was way out west in September.  She was contemplating a way to get the little Prairie Dogs in her carry on!! MOL MOL  I don't think my grandcats, Frisco or Mia would have been amused. 

I had no idea about the Prairie Speak being so complex.
Please thank Mom for teaching all of us something new and 
exciting today.
Loving your Aunty HiC


Road Update: Last Thursday Kat and his merry band of
travelers moved to Arizona

Smokey the Bear on Saturday

More NC State Fair Photos
We arrived about 8:30 am on 10/25.  No crowds and we 
were able to see some things we had not seen in the past.
The NC Department of Forestry had a wonderful 
display...

We were greeted by none other than Smokey the Bear


I have never seen all the fire fighting equipment used to fight 
forest fires.

 This is the water 'bucket' that is used for aerial drops


This 1952 former Military  vehicle is part of the Forest Service.

Right next door was a working sawmill

 This steam engine was huffin' and puffin' away


Who would touch a Sawmill? 
Usually signs are UP because some did something stupid.

Nature and Feline Friday



Hosted by Comedy Plus

Two  creepy 8-legged Nature Friday stories


First from Kat and crew in New Mexico

You will NOT believe what happened on Monday! 
Mom and Pup went for a walk around the campground...


When suddenly Pup barked, “Stop!”


Mom was about to step on a beautiful, fuzzy tarantula!

Pup and Mom said he sure did have some fantastic camouflage
Aunty is giving you some pointers....

She would have been terribly upset if she had harmed the big, creepy crawly. Ha!

I’m happy to report I was inside, and out of harm’s way during the entire ordeal.  😹


❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew


Dearest Nephews
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh no....as if creepy crawlers aren’t enough ......they are hairy too. 
Pup you are a great Desert dog w a fine sniffer.  Mom owes you a gazillion belly rubs for keeping her safe! 
  P. S. Kat
I HOPE THAT TARANTULA KNOWS HOW LUCKY HE WAS YOU WERE NOT HOT ON HIS FUZZY TUSHY.
Lovingly your Aunty HiC
