Cardboard Massage


Micah:  Oh, how I miss my so comfy scratching post.  It was the best napping spot around.  Do you think Jan will take the hint and get me a new one?

Rusty:  If it was so comfy, why did you tear it up?

Micah:  That's what you do with a scratching post.  Oh, wait, you don't have any front claws.  You haven't had the pleasure.  Take my word for it.  Sleeping with all those jagged pieces of cardboard massaging you is bliss. 

Rusty:  I think it affected your brain.  Similar to Buddy yesterday declaring we're thankful for Marcus.  Perhaps it's the humidity.

Cyndi:  *clears throat*  Excuse me but we're supposed to be letting readers know we've posted a new interview on Mousebreath.

Taylor:  Yes, and one of the kitties has my name, Taylor.  I don't have a middle name, though, but she's sure pretty.  So is her sister April.


Percy:  Stop by mousebreath to meet Taylor Swift and April Paris.  They don't have a blog, but they are on Instagram and do have an entertaining story.  


We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.

The Screwball Marcus


Percy:  Remember when Jan stopped to meet someone who used to work at Martha Mill?  While they talked, Marcus stripped down to his collar with one leash attached.  To this day he swears the devil made him do it.

Buddy:  He was so proud of himself for getting out of his harness and one of two leashes.  He used to be such an escape artist until Jan started clipping his harness to his collar.

Percy:  It's been so hot and humid lately Marcus hasn't been getting into much mischief.  I kind of miss that.

Buddy:  You miss what?

Percy:  Oh, you're right.  What was I thinking?  It's so peaceful here when Marcus is passed out with the rest of us.

Buddy:  On the other paw, it has been kind of boring around here lately.  Except for those moments when Marcus races around screeching at everyone because he thinks he's going for a walk.

Percy:  Or Jan is taking out the trash.  Or cleaning the litter pans. I don't know where he got the idea he's the official trash escort.  It's not like Jan can't find her own way outside to the trash can.

Buddy:  Well, she does tend to get lost between the living room and kitchen a lot.

Percy:  Then I guess Marcus does have a purpose here.  We old furries can sleep while he snoopervises Jan.

Buddy:  So this week we are thankful for the screwball Marcus?

Percy:  I'm afraid so.


Note:  Sorry we have been missing for a while.  We will probably be around sporadically until we all feel better.


 We're joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.

Sitting In A Puddle



Rusty:  Well, this is sure disappointing!

Micah:  It sure is.  I was looking forward to doing another interview today.

Rusty:  Jan has a nerve canceling it.  She isn't the one who writes it.

Micah:  I have to admit it has been a long, hard week with Jan tottering around the house and groaning while we try to nap.

Rusty:  It's a good thing she doesn't do yard work for a living.  We'd starve!

Micah:   And yesterday morning was way too stressful.  Someone was yelling words on our HBO list and it wasn't us!

Rusty:  I wonder why Jan was so upset.  It isn't like she had anything to do.

Micah:  And her shoes?  Is it our fault she only had one pair of shoes to wear to a meeting and they happened to be her dirty, smelly dog walking shoes?

Rusty:  We certainly didn't make her spray them with vinegar and set them outside on the porch to air out so they would smell better.

Micah:  I wonder who made a mess out of the cover Jan uses for the chair so she took it outside to hang it over the porch railing and spray it with the hose?

Rusty:  I'm not telling because Jan was sure angry when she walked up the steps and found her shoes sitting in a puddle of water.

Micah:  Yes, not one of her better days, was it!  But she did manage to find a pair of cheap sneakers she could fit a sock, an ace bandage and her big foot into for the meeting.

Rusty:  It was nice of Mr. Doug to come by to work on the screen door before Marcus starts visiting the neighbors without permission.  It now closes.  It has only slapped her in the ankle once and once in the head.

Micah: Since these things were only part of her day, I think I'm beginning to understand why Jan says we're going to hibernate for a few days.

Rusty:  We'll see you next week.

Micah:  We hope!

See Ya Thursday


Merci:  Excuse my back but I don't have the energy to get up and turn around.  This heat and humidity has been a bit much for us old fogies.  And it didn't help that Jan spent yesterday trimming bushes and cleaning up the mess.  It was exhausting just to watch!!!!

Hopefully, Jan will behave herself and stop working in the yard so we can recover.  We didn't get a post up yesterday and we're going to take a couple more days off.  We plan to be back Thursday.


Percy:  Wait, don't hit publish yet, Merci.  I want to thank Pipo, Mr. Jack Freckles and their Petcretary for the lovely card they made for my birthday Sunday.

What do you think we should do with our time off, Merci?

Merci:  Zzzzzzzz.
