Our Mom's a Meez!

Do you see that girl in the straw hat on the right side of our bloggy? You do? That is our Mom!

I helped her make her Meez. Notice her outfit & background, this is where Mom & I have our best quality time - Outside. It is the only time I like to sit in her lap & purr like a crazy kitty. It makes us both very happy.

Notice Mom's outfit. She is wearing a t-shirt & pajama bottoms. She really does this. And her long sleeve button down has Skeeto repellent in it. Those Skeetos love to bit Mom & Tannie Man's ears too! Not me.

Hey, help your Beans make a Meez. Just click on Mom's straw hat & you'll go to the Meez web site. It's FREE!

Men-with-Tools ~ "I love them" Blackie

It's me Blackie!

((((Guess what?))))

There were Men-with-Tools & big smelly boots in our house! Look what they did ...

Oh my GOSH, where did the wall go? Tannie inspects these very strange doors.

And, WHAT is that big opening next to the windows? Little Bunny hops on her tree & Tannie watches below.

Daisy Jiji take time to give her tummy a cat bath ... In Mom's office.

Now that the men are gone ... When Mom works there is room for all of us. Before we would crowd her while she worked & get into kitty spats. Now there is so much space & we can see Mom from any part of both of the rooms!

The BEST part is, I got to get a head pat from one of the Med-with-Tools. I was jittery & nervous. Mom could tell I wanted to bond. So one of the nice Men approached me. I got a quick head pat & ran off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cool -n- HOT, by Tannie Man aka Sweet T

Dear Furry Friends & Beans,

Thank you all for posting while Mom has our bloggy in SPAM mode. We got one SPAM that I covered in the litter box!!

Now ... For the Cool -n- HOT!

Me: HOT ! [click on the pic to see my handsome refection]
Pool: Cool
Me: No swim

Blackie: Once, he took a dip with Mom right by his side. She was not happy & came in with a wet Blackie. He licked his toes & shook salt water all over us. Me I am too smart to take a dip. Mom said Blackie looked like a wet baby duck & he could swim - WOW. He was in the water a total of 10 seconds - No worries, he growls at the water on the side he hopped in. Silly B!

Me: HOTTEST ginger tabby whippy curly tail ever!
Hibiscus: Coolest pretty colors.

Me: Hey, not in the picture ... Not Cool or HOT!
Hibiscus: So pretty! I just ignore it & walk on by.

All of you: Very Cool & HOT!

How is your July?
Any trooders in your places?
We gots some mousies outside.
And some men with tools are taking a wall out in between our favorite rooms ... LOUD noises. =O.O=

Nose rub,
The Tannie Man

Psst: Looking away from that Hibiscus ... Mom gushes over it, to much!

I tried to catch a Giant Swallowtail ... But, instead ....

Mom yelled at me. ME! The Sweetest Tannie Man.

She yelled at me. ME! The kitty that snuggles with her every night!

And yelled at me. ME! Her sweet boy.

(Psst. If I got this flittery thingy, I would have EATEN him ... Shhhhhh, don't tell my Mom, k?)

This is me after Mom yelled at me ... I went looking for frogs or something ... PFFT!

Click on the pics to see how wonderful & pretty I am. I am in the tall grass Mom sectioned off for me. See that window ... Each night That Little Bunny stays up late, past midnight, looking out into my tall grass -- mousies-n-stuff!

The very sneaky Tannie Man

Sleeping Contest ~ Our Entry! Zzzzzz

A Spring nap in April .... Zzzzz,

Hey furries, we learned about the Snooze contest from Katnip Lounge. Here is our entry!

Close up of the Little-est Bunny asleep out in the porch. She loved it out here when the weather was in the low 70's. Not so much now that it's in the 90's.

Here's the group shot below ... LB snuggled in, she's the gray kitty. Tannie aka The Sweet T, the gold boy enjoying a fine nap. And Blackie, waiting for a bird or squirrel friend to hop by!

Hibiscus, Daisy Jiji blends, Skinnygirl Margs & Froggy

Happy Summer to all!

We are baking in the sun ... Eek its been hot!

The organic garden is busting out thx to Mother Nature's rain festival. It also helps to have connections to a very 'hot' Horticulturist. He'z very hot, like a long tall drink of Texas tea. Nice to find a good man with a soil degree from Texas A&M.

Say hello to a vintage froggy door knocker ... He rests amongst the bird food ...

Daisy Jiji got motivated & found a new toy ... Old tall lampshade wrapped in thin strips of illusion. When I run the blender she runs around in circles in this new toy. Funny!

What I blend to stay cool & trim. Just add sweet strawberries! Watch out tho ... Drink it like Kool-Aid & you will be wiped out.

Just planted a new hibiscus plant ... Great sales at all the nurseries! This one is very tall. I planted it in a pot. Hopefully I can keep it alive during the winter inside.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!

Daisy Jiji sends her best, Blackie & Tanner are eating all the Catnip I planted, Little Bunny likes to sniff the Patchouli & Miss Simba watches the frogs hop by the lagoon at night ...

Daisy Jiji's 4th of July - Let's go!!!

Oh, hello ... Gotta run!

My attention span is super short ... Cuz I am the Daisy Jiji. Hey, what's that? Bye .........

[To all Happy 4th or happy day. I finally took the time to try to capture Miss Crazy Town. One photo just wasn't enough. She just moves to fast & wants lots of pets along the way. Here is a sample of 5 minutes with Daisy Jiji! While I chased her around with my iPhone, all the other cats were sound asleep - Always the case. Daisy meeps at me until I play with her when the gang naps. Enjoy ... The youngest & crazyest of my bunch ~ Miss Daisy Jiji.]

Footnote: Daisy Jiji has finally gone to sleep. She enjoyed the photo shoot. Especially getting to be lifted into the cabinet with the toilet paper. I got a couple of biteys when I lifted her out!

Whenever Daisy eats she must have me there to pet her head. She happily crunches on Blackie's dry food while I sit & provide a head massage. Blackie usually watches. Yes, this all occurs in the master bathroom. It's a long story, but it works for everyone!

Daisy wrapped up her photo session at Little Bunny's snack area in the guest bedroom. A rare moment for Daisy Jiji. Usually LB chases her out. Instead she got a big snack for her hard work as a kitty model!

Litterbox gardening, Swallowtail caterpillars & Hawks!

Hi ya Furries & Beans!!

Miss Simba Kitty writing today.

1st of all, we are all health & happy. As mom says that is a miracle around here. 5 of us kitties are doing noth'in but napping a tossing up an occasional hairball. Life is good!

See the pics below & I will tell a story to each:

You see 3 kitties here: THAT Little Bunny on the right, Tannie Man the gold boy sitting on Daisy Jiji. A very rare moment on the porch for any of us to be almost sitting on one another. Bird watching is prime out here, so we do whatever to get a good spot! Special note: We have seen a Hawk in our yard! Mom runs out there & yells at him. The Bluejays yell at him too ... They are the best alarm system ever! Nature is crazy mom says.

Swallowtail caterpillar top left of pic below - Click on pic to see him better. He is munching out on our mom's Rue. She has bought so much Rue that we have become a caterpillar farm. Mom got netting/wedding veil stuff, to keep the wasps & pesky birds away. And now we have 2 chrysalis ... Which mean big pretty butterflies soon!! BTW, we could care less about caterpillars ... BUT Tannie Man chases butterflies outside. He is too chubby to catch them. But it is fun to watch him run around the yard. Hee hee!

Here is the handsome Tannie Man aka Sweeet T. He is waiting for a butterfly or moth to glide by. To date he has chased many & caught none. When mom waters the plants with the big sprayer Tannie runs into the flower beds or the meadow (non-cut lawn) and hides out like a bandit.

Say hello to our 7 foot tall bee magnet. This tall guy grew from a rogue sunflower seed from the bird food. The bees love him! Currently his big yellow head is hanging low. He's about to drop his seeds! His head is the size of a dinner plate. Look very close at the pic, do you see the bumble bee?

Aww a cute human bean mom saw at the Dallas Arboretum. She went there to get gardening ideas. This little guy was throwing the pea gravel into the flower beds. Imagine that!!!

THAT Little Bunny ... We have learned she is not a big outdoor fan. If it's over 80 degrees, she won't go out on the porch. I guess the grey furs just get to warm. Me ... I will be out no matter what! Rain or shine ... Or thunder. Yep, the feral in me loves the outdoor porch! So, THAT Little Bunny perches on the big dining table & watches us with her green eyes. Mom drops her a treat when she walks in from the porch. Little Bunny trained mom well!

The best for last! See Mr. Blackie below, well he has turned out to be the 'King of the Outdoors'. Who knew?

The story:

Mom only allows Blackie & Tannie outside with her. The rest of us all have feral history & mom is sure we would hop on down the alley never to be seen again. No worries, we are good with that ... We get lotsa good chow, warm clean towels & headrubs daily - The Life!

Anywho, B & T go out with mom when she gardens: Tannie runs around & prefers to be ignored while he is outside. He only comes over for a pet when he wants in. And especially if he needs to go to the litterbox. LOL!

Blackie has completely embraced the entire backyard experience. He has tried to touch noses with a young squirrel - Mom had to spray them with the "mist" selection on the garden hose thingy. The squirrel mom & our mom were flipping out!

Blackie has chased the Mallard ducks. They waddle faster than he runs. When he slinks down in the grass & stalks the ducks his belly & the grass are like one. Mom says he dusts the grass!

The funniest is that Blackie wants out all the time ... He views the backyard as his new litterbox. Hilarious. He will do his business anywhere: flowerbeds, walkways, dirt, leaves & anyplace with a good scent. Mom thinks he is really a dog in a cat's costume.

Lastly & mom says the sweetest: Blackie likes to cuddle outside. He walks up to the vintage wrought iron yard furniture & sadly mews until mom picks him up, sits in a chair & scritches his chin ... For a long time! He has napped in her lap before. I have seen them several times, relaxing under the treed canopy far in the back ... Blackie is snoozing & mom is reading Tweets on her iPhone. Crazy huh?

Purrs & woofs out to all of you ... We hope you are all happy & healthy!
Hugs to your Beans & leave a comment if you feel inclined.

'The most feral of them all!'
