Winner of Nellie's Finish the Sentence Game

Kitties, how cute is this:

This past week, I entered Nellie's Finish the Sentence game #22 and was the very first entry.     The sentence to be completed was "Hot days are...." so I thought immediately of "Hot Days are Lazy Days".   Truth be told, around here ALL days are lazy days, but hot days are definitely the MOST lazy ones.     I never ever thought my entry would be picked by randomizer, because it was the first one.    But it WAS!

Don't you love the picture?    Aren't those back feet the best, and the tabby W on my head?  

Thanks so much Nellie and Mom for my super duper cartoon.

If you have not ever entered the weekly contest, head on over to Nellie's blog and be sure to enter week #23!!

Somewhat Uneasy Sunday

Hi, kitties.     Sorry we have been so limited in commenting this week.

Dad is still involved in painting, and I do like to lie on the canvas drop cloths he uses to protect the rugs and furniture from his splatterings.      As you can see here:

Kitties, I have some unsettling news, though with some of the things other pets and humans are facing, it is not that big of a deal.      Mom has been noticing that I seemed thinner, even in spite of having a good appetite.      She thought there was a chance I had diabetes.    So on Wednesday I was hauled off to the vet and they stole some blood from my arm to do their tests.   They checked the glucose right away and told the humans it was normal.       However, the test results showed that I was mildly hyperthyroid.   The vet had also commented on my heart being faster than normal, but said it could have been from just being there.    Seems not so, as that is a symptom of hyperthyroidism too.

I know many kitties have this, and my humans went through it with Audrey, whose T4 level was much higher.      So they are going to be trying to get me to take some medicine for it.   Wish us all luck!

Sunday Selfie

Sorry for the slight blur, but I only took one shot so this is all I have for selfies today.

I wanted to say a little bit about Wednesday's Wordless post.   I do enjoy being on the deck and often look in that direction - Dad thinks I am watching for chipmunks.     But I also look down through other parts of the railing uprights.

But what I was really trying to show you was how nicely Dad had arranged the beach umbrella to provide me with shade.    I don't like the very bright sun outside, but with a bit of shade, and a nice bit of yellow towel for my tush, life is good.

Today as usual,  I am joining the kitties blue at The Cat on My Head for today's blog hop.

Sunday Selfie/Assistant Position

Really, my assistant has been slacking off beyond reasonable.   Spitty was advertising for a new assistant, and I think I need to as well.     Occasional Sunday posts just doesn't cut it.

I am joining the Kitties Blue at The Cat on My Head for Selfie Sunday.    Mom got this picture yesterday as I was on the couch, angling for her to pick me up and put me over her shoulder.

Belated Happy Independence Day!!

Easy on Sunday

Lots of napping going on around here today, folks.      It has been mostly drizzly or rainy over the past couple of days, so my usual 22 hours a day of napping has increased to 23 1/2 hours!     Here are two different naps at different times of the day, so the lighting is different (I think the flash went off in the second one.   ::shudder:: )

No Sunday Selfie today - I was too busy getting my Easy on!

International Box Day

Kitties, I am not a box type of kitty.  Not to mention that my Mom left it till just now to provide a box!     So she had to use a little trickery to get me into the box for long enough for a picture.     Blanket plus treats!     The last picture is just after I ate them and just before I leapt out of the  box.  It is even a bit blurry!

Happy Box Day all you furries!

Uneasy Sunday

Kitties, this painting stuff is for the birds.      It is going on too long.    Dad has all the furniture pushed into the middle of the room (half of it taken out) and the humans keep going to the store for yet another pint of a sample color for the walls.  Meantime, Dad does priming, spackling, etc, and takes loooong breaks to nap with me on the deck.    

So I have to squash myself in between the furnitures and catch my inside naps as best I can:  drop cloths can make decent napping spots, actually.

Sometimes it is so hot I have to cool my belly off.   

Have a great, Sunday!   Happy Flag Day!

Half a Sunday Selfie

First, I want to thank all my friends who made suggestions for a caption for my picture last Sunday.   All the suggestions were great, and light years beyond anything my Mom might have thought up.

Second, here is my selfie for today and you will notice it is just a PARTIAL selfie.   But I wanted to post one taken in the family room with the paneled walls.  because, kitties (hold your breath, now), Dad has started to PAINT those walls a lighter color!    It is likely to be a torturously long process, because first the wood needs to be sealed with a primer, and then it will need at least two coasts of paint over that.      So don't hold your breath, but one day in the not too distant future, I will show you the result!!

In other news, we recently switched to Precious Cat litter in the blue bag and it is SO much less dusty than my previous Fresh Step.    I would even venture to say that it is dust free.   Now why can't all litter be like that?    So much better for everybody's lungs.

I am joining The Cat on My Head for today's blog hop.    Have a wonderful Sunday.
