Beary-Artistic Saturday

During my absence on July 29 and 30 we spent one night in 
New Bern, NC

The city is filled with bear statures and one elephant in all kinds attire
Here are the ones we saw while taking a walking tour of downtown

Bears in New Bern

New Bern, North Carolina's second oldest town, was founded in 1710 by a Swiss nobleman who named it after his native city of Berne, Switzerland. Bern means “bear” and the “Bern Bear” symbol is seen on the flag. Commemorative cast-iron bear heads decorate the historic City Hall and Central Fire Station.

Feline and Nature Friday with Kat

Dearest Aunty HiC
Mom and I went out to check the tomatoes this morning. 

 The tomatoes are called Carolina Gold, and turn orange when ripe. Not sure if they’re from North or South Carolina, ha! 

Looks like Mom will have a ‘mater sandwich for lunch! 🍅 Wish you were here to share.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Dearest nephew...speaking of colors...color me green with all kinds of envy.  Your Mom knows how to grow 
I, too, wish I was there to enjoy a 'mater sammich too.
Is your Mom a Duke Mayo and white bread kinda girl when she eats 'mater sammiches?

Mom likes lots of Bama mayo, pepper, on white bread... but she had to settle on multigrain bread today...she said it was delicious!

Bama mayo...I'm not familiar with that brand Kat; however, if Mom likes it, that tells me it is yummy 'cause she has excellent taste in all walks of life.
Lovingly your aunty

The Wren Family wasn’t very happy to see me this morning. Kind of hurt my feelings. 😹
Love you!

❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew 

As for the Wrens, I think they are jealous of your gorgeous furs.
Your envious but loving

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.
Here is our photo challenge

Summer Job
by Cecilia

He pounded the pavement,
he gave it his all. 
Looking for a job was a bore.
From door to door he went
in hopes of a summer job to score.
At every door, all he found was
sympathetic smiles, shaking heads and more.
He put on his best smile as he rang the bell
at door four hundred and four.
There was a thunderous roar from behind the door.
When it opened, he saw at least 87 wagging tails,
and furry faces galore.
Alas he found his calling, it would be
fun and for sure not a bore.
He was gonna be a dog walker for ever more!!

Teddy and Pam what a great photo!!

Wild Wordy Wednesday with Kat

FYI this is not wordless...

Hosted by Comedy Plus

Dearest Aunty HiC

Something disturbing happened today when I was outside with Mom. I saw a lizard, I jumped on it, (before Mom could stop me), and it’s TAIL FELL OFF!!! 🙀
I was freaking out until Mom told me  lizards can voluntarily “drop” their tails in order to escape predators. And guess what!?! A lizard can regenerate a functional tail in more than 60 days. Pretty cool, huh? 
I wonder if 🦎 are limited to 9 tails, like us felines with 9 lives. 😹😹😹
❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew 

The following video may be disturbing to some views, but I promise, no lizards were harmed in the making of this video. 😺

Dearest brave nephew!!
Leaping Lizards Nephew!  You jumped on that intruder like white on rice!
Uncle and I are giggling and drooling in our coffee.
The great out of doors is full of mysteries.
 I bet there are many humans who’d like to be able drop off a bit of their tushes every so often. 
Thank you for this great action video.
Lovingly your Aunty HiC

This cartoon brought back sweet memories of my Diva Box Queen Madi

Some flashbacks of Madi and a few boxes!!

I became addicted to boxes at 2 months old
when I came to live with the peeps.
Lo and be hold I discovered they had a cold box full
of treats and delicious meats .
From that day I made it my mission to inspect each
box in the house.

Back off Mom founders keepers!!
Madi did not like errors on her blog...I meant finder's not founders 

Yep this is a foyer box...I hope it never 
ever leaves I love it.

I don't get to visit this hamper box 
often so when I see my chance 
I move lickety split
Dang flashy box (my least favorite box) followed me
during my hamper box caper.
 A few more foyer boxes

Madi's 2 story throne box 

 People birthday boxes

Boxes stuffed with boxes

Madi each and every time I see a box I'm reminded of you and your 
love of all shapes and sizes and how you lived your life with gusto!!

......with another email from my Nephew Kat who was taken by surprise.
