I ain't afraid of no gurlz.


Maxwell: Dood, I wouldn't. That's Allie's bird feather toy.

Faraday: Pffft. I'm not afraid of no stinkin' sister.



Faraday: Imma play and chase and KEEL IT DEAD! Yeeeeee-haw!


Allie: If you've drooled all over my feathers, Brat, you're going to wish you'd never been born. 
You'd better start praying now, because I will leave no stone unturned in my wrath.
Do you hear what I'm saying, boy...?

Faraday: . . . .

Framed: maybe so?



Was Maxwell set up on Monday...or wasn't he? 


Allie: Girlcats don't play and tell.

Framed...or not?



Faraday: Hey, Maxie, look!  It's Allie's bird toy.
Quick! While no one's looking...play wif it!

Maxwell: This is, like, a trick question or something....
Allie's around the corner, watching me this very minute, isn't she? 
Right? Am I right???

Coast: still not clear

Maxwell: Hey, Allie!  Is the coast clear? Have the visitors left yet?


Allie: No, but feel free to mingle, Maxie. They don't bite, you know.
Maxwell: Uh, actually...you sure about that? That one human looks a bit toothy....


I think I'll just hang out here for a bit longer, if it's all the same....

Allie's Alert System

Allie: Oh boys! Time to head for the hills. Company's coming to call!



Faraday: For realz?
Maxwell: Dood. For realz. And they're staying in your room.

Do you get ousted from your favorite roost when visitors come to stay?

Wednesday Blues

Maxwell: *sigh* Rain in August. This is the wettest summer ever.



Well, there's nothing for it. Guess I'd better just take a nap while I wait for the sunpuddles to come back out again.



How's your Wednesday sun?

Monday, August 19, 2019

Oh woe...

Maxwell: Hey, Allie, don't look now, but you have company....


Allie: Oh, why wasn't I born an only child...?

Buddies and Pals

Faraday: hey, Mommy! Remember the turtle that visited the airplane out at the hangar an' stuffs?
The Mom: You mean this one? The one we named Speed Bump?



Faraday: Yeah, tha's him.
The Mom: What about him?
Faraday: He came to visit! Can I keep him?


Maxwell: Dood. That's not a real turtle.
Faraday: You're just jealous I found him first. Now stay away from my new friend.

More evidence...

That Allie has SOMEONE wrapped completely around her little paw....

Reason #1 why we wash before we cook

Seriously Maxie. I just cleaned that bowl.



Try as we might, we cannot keep cat butt off the counter. So instead, we fight it with some hard core sanitizing.


And a dishwasher that has a SANITIZE function.


For reals.

Ready to leap into the weekend?




Somekitty sure is!



Happy Friday!

If the shoebox fits....



The Mom: Allie. um...I think that might be a teensy bit small for you.


*cue girlcat grumbling*
Allie: It's FINE, Mother. It just...needs a little...
*grunt*


Allie: Aaaaaargh!  *girlcat growls ensue*
THIS BOX SHRUNK!


The Mom: Uh-huh.


Allie: I heard that tone, Mother. You used a tone with me.
It fits just fine. See?

The Mom: Whatever you say, dear.

Please send sorts. He's all out of them.



Maxwell: Dood. You look a bit disgruntled.


Faraday: It's Monday, Maxie. I'm all out of gruntles.

The Cat Days of Summer

We have the hots here; how about you?


Remember: cats don't sweat like humans, so if you do take them out for an afternoon walk, make sure they don't get overheated.

And protect those paws!  Even wooden decks can get uncomfortably hot and sear delicate paw pads!


Welcome, August!

Cat Yoga

Allie: I hear goat yoga is all the rage.
I'm thinking about trying something fresh and different.
Being the Fashion Forward Feline that I am, I think I shall call it...

SANDAL YOGA.


I'll begin with a few stretches. I call this Sideways Sun Salutation.


And then there's Modified Child's Pose.


Mustn't overdo my first time. I think I shall take a break now.


Good workout. Now hit the shower!

Lovely Monday?



Maxwell: Ahhh, what a lovely summer's day. Cloudy, but I see the sun's just about to come out. 
What a nice Monday.


Wait. Monday? 



Scratch that. I hear Monday's aren't nice, by definition. 
*sigh*

Allie's Terrace

Somekitty also conned the Dad into blinging up her terrace, too....




Seriously, who else do you know who has silver-and-gold pavestones?


Faraday: (mutters) Seriouslies spoiled, you mean....
Allie: I HEARD THAT!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Somekitty's enjoying her nap on the terrace today....

Happy Birthday, Faraday!



You don't look a day over three.





For reals.


(Don't look at us like that. Three's a good number. We swear.)
