Gourmet Sink Water

Myst sticks his head down to drink, but I prefer using the "paw method" to drink from here. I get the tip of my paw wet and lick it all, then repeat until I am not thirsty anymore.

Terry shakes her head over Myst and me wanting to drink from the sink when we get fresh water in our bowls every day, but other cats will agree that there is nothing like a sink!

Pesky Myst

Mom! He's looking at me! Tell him to stop looking at me!

Moth at the Door

Ooooo! This morning, there was a moth inside! He was up high so I meowed for Terry to pick me up and hold me high. (Its the only time I am HAPPY to be held.)

That moth was sooo high! Even Terry could not reach it! I whacked at the door, wishing we were both higher. It was exciting anyway, though a bit frustrating.

Myst did enjoy watching us, though he did not want to get under Terry's feet.

Under the Bed

Myst's New hiding place is under the master bed. This has been a problem since that room's door is shut as night (for shame). So before bedtime, our humans are supposed to check under the bed but sometimes they forget and Myst has to make a lot of noise and wake them up to get out.

I am NOT Fat

Color Changes

When Myst was a kitten, he was almost solid white. He surprised us all by developing a pretty silver look.

Terry says human hair is much the same because her nephew started out blond and ended up a very dark blonde or light brown.

Too Hot to Move

It is supposed to be 101 degrees outside today (38.3 c). I am sure it will be warmer in the house too, so I plan to NOT MOVE AN INCH today. I am already working hard at it, you see.

Terry said their outdoor thermomenter hit 137. She knew that was wrong and even though its in a permanently shady place, it registered crazy. At any rate, it was HOT.

Dry is Better

Bathtubs should be kept dry. They are fun places to play around.

Who Would Want to Sit in WATER? Yuck!

Humans are just NUTS! Why on earth would anyone want to sit in WATER? Ewwwww!

Yup, I Used to Sit Like This

When Jenny lived with us, I would sit behind her and watch the everyone else in the house run around the kitchen while she ate breakfast. I did this every morning, almost. I do not bother now, I just sit right on the table.

I love summer! Everything is warmer and just about any place is a good place to sleep, even though my pet humans put blankets down for me on the sofa here.

Watching Humans Scurry About

Best seat in the house! People coming and going from the front door, the kitchen, the garage, the hall and the living room! I love this spot.

Old Pic of Myst and Me

Here is an old picture of Myst and me. We had made friends from the very start. Myst lived with us a few weeks before he went off with Jenny when she graduated from college and moved into her own place. Then Myst got ill and needed special care and food. Also, Richard and Terry loved Myst too, especially Richard who wanted to go visit Myst a lot when he was away. So, eventually it worked out best that Myst came to live with us and Jenny was expecting a baby.

Cuteness vs Meowing Loudly

Terry says Myst is so cute, she can not help taking a million pictures of him up there and giving him ear scratches.

Its all a plot, I say. I think Myst just gets his way with this cute act. Nobody can resist that! Humpf! Myst says his method of being cute is much more effective than my method of going out in the hall or bathroom and meowing loudly until someone comes.

Both systems seem to work well with our human pets, though.

Best Place to Sit

One of the best places to sit in the whole world, especially after Richard rubs fresh catnip from the garden here. I think I will sit here forever.

Hope You Had a Good Fourth

We did ok last night. There were fewer fireworks this year which was nice for us, but maybe that was due to the rainfall we had, so Myst hid out anyway.

A Good Day to Hide

To those who are celebrating today, we wish a safe and happy and memorable holiday. We will likely be spending most of the evening under the bed, though. And our humans will wake up tomorrow all bleary-eyed from lack of sleep.

Still, we expect it to be a good day cause they are home from work and can brush us EXTRA!

Warm Sunshine

I love to be in a patch of sun, even when it falls across my eyes, it is warm and feels good.

This is Emmie. She is Punkin's sister and gets into all kinds of things like the cupboards.

Terry says she has a sweet meow and friendly nature.
