Thursday Tale

The Week of May 23 we had 2 days of the most wonderful cool weather.
Mom actually opened the windows for the first time in about 100 years.
Seriously, You all might recall we had new windows installed in October of 2015
Over the years our the lovely humidity made the old windows nearly impossible to open.
Here in NC it is either too hot or too much pollen or too cold and damp  to open windows for whiffs.
In my 14.5 years I can count on 2 paws the  number of times I have been able to sit  fresh
cool breezes. The new windows go up and down easy peasy and I love sitting on my tree stump
(mom calls it that because it isn't an entire cat tree).
I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

I often see birdies from my dining room table.  I actually heard them here and a frog croaking about being my prince and wanted to kiss me!!  I told him Raz was my Prince
and he better hop away quickly before my Raz found out he was tryin' to steal my heart.
I saw a real rabbit run across my yard. Princess Leah I saw all shapes, sizes and colors of buttie pillars. I saw tons of K9's walking their people. and I heard lots of chit chat from the neighbors....I even got to see Kasi, the dog mom walks, lounging in her yard!!
Mom calls this an enrichment activity and promised we would do it again the fall.

Cause now the 3 H's (hot, hazy and humid) of summer are here.


  1. OMD Madi, you need to come visit us on the Northwest Coast...Mama leaves the windows open all year round!!

  4. We totally agree, Madi - gazing out open windows is lots of fun!

  5. WOW Madi! I so wish I was looking outta your window, there are so few Buttie Pillars out here at the moment (too wet and cold fur them), I'm hafting to grow my own!

  6. I agree fresh breezes are good :o) ... don't trust that frogs... the most are no princes, they only turn into kelloggs sugars smacks... with a lot of calories :o)

  7. Same Issues here in Central Mississippi, although I think we have had an awesome spring,,, well for this area, I love opening the patio door and letting fresh air in. I live far enough off the main road, that I can let my two kitties out during the day. Enjoy those windows!!! Love the tree stump!! If I ever have to contain my kitties I would love to install a catio at a window. I've seen some amazing ones on the net or Pinterest!! MOWRUFFF from Central MS.

  8. Oh Madi, you lucky girl, being able to hear, smell and see all the wonders of the outdoors. Hope you get to do it again soon. We like your tree stump. We have a few butte pillars here. You all have a fantastic day.

  9. wow what a day you had, so much excitement and sorry you have to wait until next year... you could ask Mom to build a small sized screen porch, one just for you. you could sit on your porch and enjoy all this while mom huddles in the air conditioning... if you need me to draw up plans for a cat sized screen porch, let me know

  10. Nice weather is da best weather!

    Your pal,

    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  16. Wow, what a grreat experience for you!

  17. Oh Madi, are you sure that frog wasn't Raz in disguise hoping for a kiss to turn him into a prince right there with you?

    Most of the windows on our first floor ( where we are restricted) are nonopening windows. Just floor to ceiling glass. So we love it if the front and back doors are open - that creates a great breeze.

  18. It's about time she opened that darn window. Look at all you were missing. But we do know you were exaggerating Madi. It was probably 87 years and not 100
    Lily & Edward

  19. How fun, Madi! That is why fall and early winter is my favorite time of year. We have the triple H thing going on now and we are looking at 98 degrees next week! Love the last picture.. :)

  20. Oh, how wonderful! I love it when we get to have a window open --- which is about as often as you. Sigh. Isn't it GREAT, though?!!? You look like you're having so much fun!
    Yours sincerely,

  21. Not only bird television....but smell-o-vision as well! We usually have windows and/or door open. SHE doesn't like dog smell much...sheesh! But recently we've had to close everything because it's cold (for HER). SHE's been wearing HER Madi-hug scarf in the mornings. Enjoy that fresh air!

  22. We hope you get more times like this to enjoy!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  23. Raz is glad you told that frog off!!! Sorry we've been MIA but Mom and Dad are FINALLY back from Sedona!

    your guy Raz and The Florida Furkids

  24. Madi, how great that you go the window open. One of our favorite things in the whole world is sitting in the open window and smelling the fresh air. :)

  25. I'm so glad you got to enjoy the fresh breezes! We have about the same weather here in central Virginia. We hardly ever open the windows either because of the heat and/or the pollen.

  26. oh, love the open windows and doors. We wish they could just stay open all the time, wouldn't that be GRAND!!

  27. My street windows are never open but all the others are except in the dead of winter.

  28. Window whiffs are the best. We don't get them much here, we usually have the central air on.

  29. OMD/OMC!!! Oh gurl, I am so sorry you don't gets to enjoy the wonders of your yardie! Living here, Ma has the windows open all the time (except in the HOT days of summer, like now, when it hits over 85, then the AC goes on, and the windows close), butts Ma is addicted to the fresh cool sea air we gets, and can't imagine living without it! I hopes you will have a chance to watch 'Estate TV' again soon...
    Oh, and my 'Flat Ruby' gots returned by the nasty PO!!! So Ma went down today and Mailed it AGAIN with Priority Mail, so hopefully, it will gets to you before you leave!!!!!
    frickin' PO....
    Ruby ♥

  30. I use to love keeping the door open in the old mobile home before we built our house. Leaving the glass up and feeling the wind and hearing every thing. I've been telling the hubby I want a screen door for the house. He needs to pay attention....


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
