Photo Hunt - Fresh

Whiffing the FRESH air!    

Also, Mom was treated by a different physical therapist yesterday who used a FRESH approach and did a couple of new manipulations with Mom's neck and with her arm ("nerve gliding").    Mom thinks that did something to help improve the pinched nerve a little more.    She still has tingling in her arm and hand, but it is a "lighter" tingle than before.   So a bit of progress.   Once she finally gets rid of this problem we hope to be commenting more on our friends' blogs.  Thanks for not forgetting us!!!

Thursday on the Deck

The deck is really our version of the garden.  We had a serious cold snap so it is good Dad had not yet put out any plants there.   But soon there will be some, we are sure.

When we are in we ask to go out, but as you can see, when we are out, if there is any chance of a meal or snack, we ask to come in!  This was at (our perceived)  dinner time yesterday.

A mini-escape:

Scooped up and brought back in!

TV Time Tuesday

Dad was watching basketball, so Audrey got the benefit of a little side-snuggle.

Photo Hunt - Spicy

We agree with Sparkle: catnip is a SPICY!
Photo from last Fall.  Dad was cutting back the nip plant and putting the bits in the bag to dry.

Thursday in the Garden

Kitties, it has really been wild here at our house!    We had a lot of damage done to our trees last October with the freaky snowstorm, and also all the trees have been in need of trimming and pruning anyway.  Mom and Dad also wanted to get limbs near the house trimmed back. But it was not till this week that then men could come to do the work.     They actually drove their truck with the bucket extension on it into our back yard and left it parked there overnight!!       Here is a picture of the truck parked in our yard (they used special mats so as to minimize the damage to the lawn though it did get somewhat chewed up in places):

and one of them using it to get to the high branches: the other truck with the wood chipper is parked in front on the driveway:

We were very interested in everything, and the weather was warm on Tuesday, so after they left we got to be out on the deck again.   But it was also close to dinner time, so finally we asked very definitely to go in to eat!

Mostly Wordless Wednesday with Bof of Us

(that's one of those huge leaf bags - Dad was cleaning up sticks and such so Audrey decided to help).

Spring is Sprung

We wanted to post a couple of new pictures on the deck.   As has been the case with many in the eastern part of the US, our weather has turned warm, and Dad has had us on the deck over the past couple of days.     We both really LOVE it!

Yesterday we had a tree trimming crew here and we were excited to watch them.    They will be back today too: in fact they left one of their trucks with the bucket thing on it parked in our back yard!!!    
Mom's pinched nerve seems to be responding to the therapy, she is in less pain, and even added some exercises to what she was doing yesterday.  She goes 3 times per week.    Computer still is uncomfortable, though.    Kitties, tell your humans that activities where they bend forward over their computer or iPad or cellphone are NOT GOOD for their necks!

World Cancer Day

Along with so many others we are purring and praying today, We remember loved ones who were lost to cancer, celebrate those who are survivors,  and pray for those who are suffering with it today.

The Way We Were

Mom does not have kitten pictures of either of us, since we were both grown when we were adopted.    However she DOES have a picture of Audrey taken at her first Mom's house where "the way it was" was SPOIL, PAMPER, CODDLE.    Look at THIS:

It is also rather funny to post this picture today, when the temperature here is in the 70s.

Mom is improving a little with her neck issues, but it is still better for her to severely limit her computer time.   Hopefully by the end of next week she will be doing better.

Easy Sunday Simba Style

Truth be told, the picture just before this one, I was wrassling vigorously with my nip nanner.  

We are cutting back on posting and visiting - Mom has a pinched nerve in her neck so computer is not such a good idea.     She has some physical therapy scheduled this coming week.   Hoping it will do the trick.

Thursday in the Garden


Kitties, this has been a very mild winter in most of the United States.      The birdies have gotten a bit confused and we already have a pair nesting in one of our birdhouses.     This picture is not the best, because the servant had to zoom in a lot to get close enough to see them, but isn't this a sweet domestic scene?  Mommy is peeking out the hole and Daddy is next to her on the roof.    If you click on the picture, it should biggfy.

Bath Day at the Tabby Cat Club and Farewell to Rilli

Today I have posted about my G-rated bath at the Tabby Cat Club Blog.     Go over there and see all the other bathing cats as well!

We bid farewell to our Finnish friend, Rilli-ukko, who left for the Rainbow Bridge yesterday after a long life.     Please visit his human Aiti and his thirteen cat siblings here to help to celebrate Rilli's life.   Fly free, Rilli.

Hats of Hope for Judi Bug

Today we are joining with many furriends to take OUR hats off to Judi, Mom to Sammy, Andy, Shelly, and Sierra.  

Judi is facing some challenges with her health and we just want her to know she has our purrs and our Mom's prayers.    We purr that the doctors taking care of her will be very wise and will be able to come up with a good treatment for her.

Judi very kindly made our banner for us, and has made banners and pictures for many others as well.    She also has done wonderful hatted pictures of many kitties and doggies, that we have always enjoyed seeing.      She has a wonderful kind heart and we wish her only the best.

Thanks so much to Ann of Zoolatry for making our awesome picture for today.   Do you see the little ladybugs on our hats?

Sunny Saturday Picture

It is actually rainy here today - not any violent weather, just drizzly type rain.   And fog.    But a few Saturdays ago, Mom took this shot of me with the sun coming in to the room.    We used it in one of our Valentine pictures.      I think it is rather dramatic.

Have a great Saturday, safe from bad weather wherever you are.

Purring for our Relatives and Friends

Hi, kitties.   We know today has been a horrible day for weather in many places here in the USA.   Tonight are more bad storms coming through the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys.  Purr hard for everbuddy, and right now especially for Katie Isabella and for our cousins Terence and Persimmon and woofie Josie.    Also friends in North Carolina, South Carolina, and anybody else in the path of these storms.  Tornadoes and hail are the bad threats.

Update:   It seems as if those we know well are OK.  We sure hope everybody else is!!
