Nature Friday and 2 Feline Nephew Friday

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting Nature Flower Friday

Nature Friday from Utah..

I thank Carol,aka mom of the Doodz, Murphy and Stanley, for giving me permission 
to use this gorgeous photo.  She took it on their morning jog August 3, 2020!
It looks like a painting....OMDs

Here is the description she sent to me:
Cottonwood Drive in Pleasant View, a city that borders North Ogden and is just half a mile from our house and the elevation is 5500 feet.  The dirt road goes to parking for those who hike the Powerline Trail. If I would have turned around and taken a photo, it would have showed a view of the valley below. Moments after taking the pic the colors vanished. 

Feline Friday from my nephew Kat in Georgia

I have a new toy, and I love it!

Hope you enjoy my video. 

Mom originally bought it for Rocky, because I’ve never cared much for toys.
I  started playing with it immediately. 
Mom has already ordered another for Rocky, and they’re on sale at Amazon for 10.99 (marked down from $24.99), if any other kitties are interested. 😺

Dearest Nephew Kat
HUGS FROM YOUR Loving Auntie HiC

Deareast Auntie HiC
It is I, Rocky.  I thought it would be nice to send my
wonderful Vet Tech Ms. Tara a thank you know for all her TLC yesterday?!  This is what I wrote:

Ms.Tara, Thank you for taking good care of me yesterday. I’m still a little groggy today, from the good drugs you gave me, but have a good appetite when I’m awake.
❤️ Rocky

Dearest nephew Rocky...
It is always nice to send notes to those who help you.  Ummmm
wondering if Ms. Tara included a human cootie shot in the drugs...I just got human slobber all over your 100% precious adorable nose.  The cute meter just flew off the wall.
Lovingly Auntie HiC

Wordy (wings) Wednesday

Today's wings photo from my Janice my roving photo journalist
She capture this most amazing close up of the elusive Cicada
always heard rarely seen.

I was truly amazed to finally see one in all my years, I have never ever NO never seen

Below info pasted from Google
The cicadas (/sɪˈkɑːdə/ or /sɪˈkdə/) are a superfamily, the Cicadoidea, of insects in the order Hemiptera (true bugs). They are in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha,[a] along with smaller jumping bugs such as leafhoppers and froghoppers. The superfamily is divided into two families, Tettigarctidae, with two species in Australia, and Cicadidae, with more than 3,000 species described from around the world; many species remain undescribed.
Cicadas have prominent eyes set wide apart, short antennae, and membranous front wings. They have an exceptionally loud song, produced in most species by the rapid buckling and unbuckling of drumlike tymbals. The earliest known fossil Cicadomorpha appeared in the Upper Permian period; extant species occur all around the world in temperate to tropical climates. They typically live in trees, feeding on watery sap from xylem tissue and laying their eggs in a slit in the bark. Most cicadas are cryptic. The vast majority of species are active during the day as adults, with some calling at dawn or dusk. Only a rare few species are known to be nocturnal.
One genus, the periodical cicadas spend most of their lives as underground nymphs, emerging only after 13 or 17 years. The unusual duration and timing of their emergence may reduce the number of cicadas lost to predation, both by making them a less reliably available prey (so that any predator who evolved to depend on cicadas for sustenance might starve waiting for their emergence), and by emerging in such huge numbers that they will satiate any remaining predators before losing enough of their number to threaten their survival as a species.

Happy Tuesday with Rocky

Hi, it’s me Rocky.

Mom said she ordered a something to keep me happy this week, because I’m going to the vet at 8 am on August 19, Wednesday, to be “TUTORED!”
How exciting! I’ve always wanted to learn a second language. 😹

MOL MOL In human language...
Snip(neutering),Chip (micro), Clip(mani-pedi)
When I wake up, mom says, I'll be a new 'man'!!! I don't know about that but I know I'll be a HAPPY MAN

I received a special delivery today; Cat Crack!
I love this stuff!

How exciting! I’ve always wanted to learn a second language. 😹

❤️ Rocky Your Orange Nephew

Dearest Orange Nephew Rocky...
Ohhhhh you aren't gonna have a care in the world once Mom cracks open the Cat Crack.  Ironically there are kitties who don't really respond to it...BUT happily both Milky-Way and Madi were crack heads.  Madi especially loved YEOWWW! Sardines...they even came in a can.  She would lick and kick and just be plum crazy with one of them. Lovingly Auntie HiC

Awww Mondays and Sunflower Sparks

 Janice and her hubby Al went to visit a friend...
Thank goodness Janice always has her handy dandy iPhone. 
This gorgeous sunflower was standing proudly in their yard.
Janice is several inches taller than yours truly, who is 5 ft 3 3/4 inches, on a good hair day.
She had to look up to snap the photo
Her guess to the width was at least 12" maybe wider... 

Decisions, decisions do I use this for Nature Friday...
Nope it is for sure a Awww Monday and I found a perfect Sparks too
