Contrary to popular opinion, I, Madi, do not nap 24 hours a day.  I am very involved in helping Mom and Dad (remember I helped him with the recycling last week).  Today I'm helping Mom with her mending. The first thing we do is select thread for the project....I'm quite partial to gray, as you can see it matches me purrfectly.

 I make sure Mom has the proper tools for the job

 We discuss the exact method by which I think she can best accomplish the mending. 
Then I let her 'try' to do this without my constant snoopervision.
Notice my nonchalant gaze out the window.
She normally does a pretty good job alone but I know she appreciates my help.
NOTE FROM MOM:  Madi really does feel it is her duty to check in on everything we do.  Curiousity really does keep her young.


  1. Madi, something tells me that you want to unwind that spool of thread. And if you haven't thought of it, you must try at least one - two-leggers just love it. :)

  2. Madi, you're such a helpful kitty! And with all that hard work, I'm sure that long recovery naps are necessary.

  3. Hi, Madi!
    Sure it is important to snoopervise them!
    I like to do that with my mom... but then I get bored and go away for naps... but always keeping an eye on her!
    Have a great monday!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. Bravo Madi! Honestly, you not only help but make it so much fun!
    Have a great week!

  5. Hi Madi & Mom,

    Madi, you are the best snooperviser we have ever seen. Your attention to detail (until nap time at least) is amazing. Our moms and dads would be totally lost without our help.

    Have a wonderful week.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J and Cindi Lou

  6. I don't knows how they could manage doing anything without you. Do you make a to do list furs them everyday? Come to think of it, dat ain't a bad idea
    Good to know your mom can "mend" things...I has some dresses dat be to loooooong fur my short legs. Just one of them pitfalls of being a doxie.


  7. Madi, Your such a sweet helper :) I wish I had a helper like you.

  8. Its good you have the Diva.
    You might not be able to function without her snoopertise(expertise). lol

  9. Madi, you are such a big help to your mom! Funny, our mom doesn't really like our help when we try to help her with the sewing machine or painting.

  10. Madi,

    I missed you! You sure are a wunderful help to your mom.:)

    WOofs and Licks,

  11. Hi Madi, we can see you are invaluable asset to your mom.
    Our late cat was particularly fond of knitting!
    She liked to make sure the wool was nice and loose from the ball.
    Do you do any knitting?

  12. Hi Madi girl! You sure have grrreat taste... that grey is a lovely color. You are such a very helpful kitty for helping your mom out and snoopervising to make sure that everything is in order.

  13. That's very good that you don't micro-manage your mom. It really boosts humans self-esteem when they *think* they've finished a project on their own.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  14. Ah......Can I send that ol' ripped quilt to your Mom to mend? My Mom STILL hasn't fixed it!!!!!

  15. Hi Madi, the fact that Mom was working right near a nice sunny spot and a window must have helped your "snoopervision"! tee hee hee

    Sun bathe, keep an eye on Mom and an eye on what's happening outside all in one spot! What a lucky girl!

  16. You are such a fabulous helper, Madi! We're sure you like to keep your beans on their toes and make sure everything is done with the utmost precision!

  17. Madi, darlin' girl, you are such an excellent snoopervisor!!!!!

    We are busy snoopervising boxes here.......they keep piling stuff in the boxes and chasing us out....not fair at all!!!!!!!

    We are both a bit concerned cuz our home is full of clutter and chaos right now, but mama assures us everything will be ok and she'll take care of us.

    We love y'all bunches.

  18. Hi there Madi, what a good job you are doing snooopervising the mending. We know it will turn out much better with your help. You are a good kitty to do that.
    Take care and have a fun week.

  19. Madi, you are a very good helper! Can you thread a needle? My mom could not thread a needle if her life depended on it!

    Your pal, Pip

  20. LOL...Mom, I understand about the snoopervising!

  21. Oh yes, that grey color is the best!!!! Love that you snoopervise, Madi!! Mable likes to sleep through a lot of lessons around here!

  22. That's what I love about cats...they are so connected to their people's activities...
    Madi, Mom is so lucky to have your help!

  23. Madi, you do a spectacular job snoopervising. We like to help our Mommy sew, too. She ALWAYS tells us what a big help we are!

  24. Madi, great snoopervision!!!

  25. I am certain you are your mommy and daddy's biggest helper! I am SO happy we get to exchange Christmas gifts! I love this time of year!

  26. Madi
    It is good that you keep a eye (and nose) out for the Mom and Dad. We know without your help they would never be able to get all of those things accomplished!


  27. It's wonderful the way you help them out with everything. I can't imagine how they could get along without you.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  28. hi madi! looks like you are an awesome helper, and obviously you do not sleep all day! as you know even though i am a doxie we have a lot in common and i help my mom too! keep it up!

  29. Hi Madi,
    Happy is a good helper when we are in the kitchen!! She always interested in fixing food!!! She couldn't care less about anything else. lol
    Bambi is doing well so far. She knows I don't want her to scratch. She is trying!!
    XXOO, Bambi & Fern

  30. Dear Mum

    It's not snoopervision! It's making sure you do a good job.

  31. Madi, we know your mom really appreciated all your help!! What would she do without you??

  32. miss madi,
    you are a grrreat snoopervisor! you know how to give your mama just the right amount of attention without makin' her feel like you are breathin' down her neck. :)

Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
