Saturday with Mindy and Mike

We are having a relaxing day.

Mike
It is lovely, warm and sunny.  I thought I would catch a few ZZZZZZ's while things are still quiet.


Mindy
I have that idea too, good suggestion Mike

Mindy, 
Oh, I think our human beans have gone out.
We are almost out of Temptations treats


Mike
 I hope they bring back billions of bags of treats with some new flavors.

Hope our visitors have a great weekend and never run out of yummy treats.

Sunny Sunday


Sunday should be sunny, and it is!

Mike
I am outside on our deck.  I convinced our 'dad' to bring out the ZOOM groom.



 Mike
 Just the right spot!
Now I'm handsome and happy too.

Mindy
I do not need a grooming just now.
I am going to relax and keep an eye or perhaps 2 eyes on everything that is going on today.

Mindy
I did a complete check on everything,  however, there is not much going on.  It is Sunday and very quiet.  I do not even see many birds at our feeder, I think they came early this morning - they were the 'early' birds!

Mike
Well, in that case, it is time for a snooze and a chance to watch TV to catch the last day of the Olympics.

I think I need to keep my eyes open for that though!

Have a good Sunday everyone!

We are participating in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

Sunday with Drizzle



That is what our humans call the tiny bits of moisture that we had today.

That is okay with us.
We can use the time for some long naps.

Mike
There is not much activity out in our yard.  
Oh well, I can practice sleeping positions in my favorite chair.....now that I think about it, all the padded chairs are my favorites.


Mindy
 I am in my favorite chair.
Just my size, purrfect


 Mike
 Still very humid and damp.  That makes me hungry.
I wonder what I can get into....I mean, I wonder what goodies I might "find" in the kitchen....on the counters.


Mindy
 When I want a snack, I just bide my time and look really, really cute. 
I have a small but persistent voice.

 fillet 'o fish
 Ah, this is my idea of a tasty snack



Check out what it says on the sign.
  Halfway to the North Pole.   That is, IF you wanted to go there, you would be halfway there.

Guess what, we are not going there.

PS the mastadon in the photo is not real because they are extinct.....so no worries..... and have a great day everyone!

We Need Rain!!



There are forest fires in our area, this causes us to smell smoke which is very irritating to everyone and us kitties too.

If you have spare rain,  send some of those clouds our way, please.

We had our neighbour kitty come over for her visit and here she is on our deck.

 Miss Callie is her name.  Her humans are our neighbors.  However, they stole her furs!!!

Mom says they gave her the 'lion' cut.


 Yikes!


Mike
No thanks, no lion cut for me



 Miss Callie, would like to come in!
 But, I, Mike, am guarding the door.

Good thing, too.

Hope everyone, has a great (non smokey) day!

World Cat Day



It is World Cat Day





Now that is something to celebrate!

Mindy
 I think I will celebrate by arranging these nice red flowers.
They smell good, and I might just have a little, tiny, taste.


 Well that did not work
 My mombean thought I might want to snack on the flowers, so they got put away.
Instead I got some Temptations snacks - way better!


Me again!
Purrs, Mindy

Caterday with Mindy and Mike


Our Caterday started out with lotsa fog.  So we decided to stretch out our naps.


Mike
Also our human beans were doing some home improvements.   It is best to snooze through anything like that.


 Mindy
 Yes, Mike, I would agree.  Although,  last time I looked out of the window, it was quite sunny, warm and no sign of mist, fog or whatever.
I think I heard our mombean starting up the lawnmower.

She was almost finished when she came into the house to report to dadbean and us that she got stung by this critter or something close to it!  A hornet maybe??

In two places - on her ankle and knee.  The grass cutting was definitely over for today!  She says she is lucky that there is very little swelling and just some redness and only "stings" a bit.......yup, she felt those stings.   She should have stayed inside  and curled up with us and  a good book!!

PS ... Mindy here, I had a dental cleaning last Wednesday.  My mouth is still sore, but I have meds - in a paste form which get applied to my ear!! - to help with that.  I get only soft food for now, which I like.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Caterday Friends

Good day everyone, we want to introduce you to our kitty neighbors.

This is Bruno
 He lives next door to us.  He is a big kitty!

 
This is  Maddi
She also lives close by and is Bruno's mama.

Both kitties are our neighbors and sometimes our humans give them their meals when their people are away.

Mike
Not to compare too closely - I used to be almost as large as Bruno!
I am older, so I have slimmed down (not my idea) a bit.  The vet says I am doing fine for an old guy.


Mindy
 Compared to those three, I am the smallest - and cutest ;)

We wish our visitors a great weekend!

Our Garden on Wednesday


The warmer days are here at last!  We were a bit worried because of some cool, windy days earlier.  Feels like summer.

Mindy
This plush, soft, throw is across the end of the bed I like to sleep on.   It was a gift and if you are a Dr. Who fan, you will recognize the phone box theme. It has become my favorite nap spot.

Mike
I am frequently on the kitchen counter top.  It is especially important to snoopervise preparation of our meals.  I even offer to help out.

Oh, yes, we would like to show you some of the flowers in our garden.
 This is a honeysuckle bush in bloom.  The bees like these blooms.

....and these flowers plant themselves here and there wherever they please.
Our mom'bean' calls them columbine

A couple of years ago we put up a birdhouse
...and finally we have tenants!  A family of chickadees.  Looks like it needs a new paint job though.

Other birds come into our garden as well
The yellow bird is a goldfinch

A purple finch is at the feeder now.
if you look on the left, you can see a bird in flight, attempting a landing on the other side.

What else can we show you?
Oh yes, our birdbath.  It seems to be used by the birds for drinking water.

There you have it, hope you enjoyed the garden tour!

Have a great day,
purrs from Mindy & Mike

Monday Breakfast





 Mike
 Really?  It's Monday - again?

Mike & Mindy
 What is going in that bowl for our breakfast Mindy?

Look at this
 Do you think there is enough for both of us?


Oh, look
 found this and it is open!!

Mindy
Dream on Mike, but I do not think we will get that for breakfast.

Well, dear friends, what will you have to start your day/week off right?

Monday, Monday.....



and summer is definitely here with sunshine and warmth.


Mindy
  This is my favorite spot, on the coffee table, for keeping track of all that goes on.  However, today is a quiet day, too warm to do anything that requires excessive use of energy.


Mike
 I agree totally with Mindy, I am snoozing in my favorite office chair.  I am supposed to be helping with today's post, but a quick nap is important too.


We want to wish our friends in the USA a very happy

July 4th!

If you are suffering from the summer heat, perhaps looking at this photo will make you feel cooler?

Here is one that mombean took a few days ago.  We live by the North Atlantic Ocean and there are lots of opportunities to take photos of waves.
