Merry Catmess Time!!

Furry friends!     I have been AWOL for a long time.    My humans are paying too much attention to the grandchildren (4 now), hence my blog has fallen into disuse.    But I am pretty fine.  Almost 16 now!   When my humans are traveling I miss them, but my friend Caroline takes care of my needs very well.  

We love this from TICA, the International Cat Association in 2015.    Katie Isabella and her Mommy encouraged me to post it after I sent it to them.

Have fun and Merry Christmas to all.

Goodbye and Godspeed to Flynn

We are feeling very sad today to learn that my dear friend Flynn flew off to the Rainbow Bridge on May 1st, to join his brother Eric.     They were among my very first blogging friends.   I know their parents must be missing them both, and Flynn especially, since this leaves them without a kitty to share love with.     Run and fly free of sickness dear sweet Flynn.      One day we will meet again.   Please give Eric some head butts from me too, as well as ALL of our friends who have gone before.

On a happier note, one of the best things about blogging pets is meeting and getting to know bloggers from all over the world.    We share a special bond in our love of our animals.     Condolences to Jackie and Igor as they miss their dear sweet Flynn, but know that we hope you will continue to blog and tell tales of your travels and your life in Devon.
(Thanks so much to Ann of Zoolatry for the lovely graphic of angel Flynn).

Naptime now!

Warm Weather Was Lovely

Hi, pals.   Yes, I know.   Long time no see.   It is my typist's fault.

Anyhoo, a little while back we had some amazingly warm weather, considering it was February.    Mom took some pictures to show how I was enjoying the deck.  I do still go out when it is cold, sometimes, but I don't stay very long.

So here is me peering through the railings at something.  She needed to zoom to get this. see below for why).   When Mom tried looking through in that position she doesn't get what I must be looking at.  A whole lot of pachysandra growing down there, with a rare chance of seeing a chipmunk or squirrel.  

She was lucky to get that picture because usually if I see her coming out the door with the camera in her hand, this is what happens and it's all over with posing. (different day, different towel from Dad for me to sit on).

It is cold again now, but there is hope once March is over.

Hope you all are not too chilly, not too hot.  Just right!!

Coming Out of Hibernation

Gosh, it has been cold, and even a bit snowy, here.    Dad offered to let me on the deck this morning and when I saw the snow I backed way up!

I have been napping a lot in my cozy blankies.    Like this (my hibernation pose):

And Mom found me two new treats:   one is Fortiflora, that was recommended by Katie Isabella and her Mommy (supposed to help my digestion, but I like it 'cause it tastes DEEELICIOUS! )  The other new treat is a whole CANISTER full of Temptations Mixups, that are Catnip Fever flavor.     I also highly recommend them.    So I do wake up from my hiberation naps to get some fuds.

I also wake up to sit with Mom at the computer:

Notice that she had to move the wireless keyboard out of my way so I could get comfy.    She does spoil me that way!

Our Christmas tree is up, Mom has finished the (online) shopping and the Christmas cards, and I am hoping she remembers to blog for me more often.   She does go around and read some of my friends' blogs for me, and sometimes lets me comment, but I would like her to step that up too.

I don't have any festive header or eCard to put out for you all, but our wishes are there just the same:  may you all have a wonderful Christmas or Chanukkah, and I hope you get lots of yummy treats, and maybe a little roast beast!

A Good Excuse this Time for My Blogging Absence

This time I really DO have a good excuse for my absence.    You see, Mom spent most of the summer away helping out her daughter and with "our" new baby.   Thus Mom, my typing assistant, was not able to write blog posts for me.       So let me introduce her to you:  

I know, it looks like my sister gave birth to a bunny rabbit!       Sillies, those are not her own ears!   She has quite normal human ears, in fact.  

Her big sister came for a visit her first Christmas, and I do hope I get to meet this little one at Christmas time as well, or near then.     I like babies!   They smell good and they don't move fast.     Mom says this one is very opinionated, issuing little noises all the time.  I guess she will be a great talker like her big sister.

Checking In -Definitely NOT Wordless Wednesday

Dear friends, I have not given up blogging, but I recognize things here at Simba's Antics have been MIGHTY SLOW.     Some of you who have pawrents who went to Blogpaws know what it is like - we really do need our assistants to enable us to post.    These thumbless paws just don't quite do the trick with the keyboard.

Anyway, my humans have been doing some traveling - not anything too elaborate or romantic like a Rhine River Cruise or anything, but two weeks here, 4 days there - it all helps to detract from the more important task of blogging.    I wish my assistant scheduled posts in advance like some other creative cat Moms and Dads do, but no such luck.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of me, just so you do not forget what I look like!

First the sleepy shot:

Then the casual crossed-pawsies one:

And finally the left-hind-leg-dangling-off-the desk shot:
