Looking back at 2018

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!  Our mom bean has been watching the news this morning and efurrybody seems to be looking back at the year that we thought, hey maybe we can get her off her duff and do one of those for us.  Don't worry, it's gonna be short.

We asked her to count our posts for the year...counting this on, we're at 39.  That's right, not even one a week!  Sheesh mom, you are a slacker.  Then we went and looked at the photos she saved of us...only 57 and a lot of those included that brat Sheldon.  Twelve of our posts featured napping...of course that is a favorite pastime of ours.  We had one visit from Angel Sami when the mom bean abandoned us the first time in the year.  She didn't even post before she abandoned us the second time!

Three of our posts showed how helpful we are.  But if she thinks we'll keep that up in 2019, she's got another think coming right.

In four of our posts, the cat tree was featured and the sunny room four times.  But that darned sticky bean was mentioned 9 times.  Seriously mom, who is this blog about?

Well, she's still the only mom bean we have so we have to put up with her.  Our bean brofur is pretty darn good too, but he sometimes forgets to open the stinky goodness at precisely 6:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m.  If the mom bean forgets, we help by reminding her.  MOL!

From our house to yours, Happy New Year's Eve efurrybody!

She's back and we're happy!

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!
The mom bean finally got back from her trip.  We, Sasha and I, survived her absence by annoying spending time with our bean brofur.  He remembered to feed us - as if we'd let him forget, and cleaned our kitty litters regularly.  He's a pretty good guy!

We were furry happy to see the mom bean and gave her lots of lubbings even though it was furry late (1 a.m.) and she would have liked to go to sleep.  We know she really didn't mind that much. :)

I don't think we would have been so happy if we'd only realized what she was up to on her trip.  She was seeing other kitties!!!

This was a Roatan kitty, at the monkey and sloth farm.  Since he/she was sleeping mom bean was satisfied with just taking a photo.

This a Mexican kitty, at the little town of Mahahual.  Mom bean said he/she was furry nervous so no touching allowed.

Here's a Jamaican kitty.  He was at the restaurant and convinced beans to feed him/her.  Mom bean gave the kitty some cheese from her taco salad and he/she gobbled it right up.  She did get in a couple of pats...hussy!

Meet Alley, the guard kitty (not so much) at Oak Alley.  

She really liked mom bean and followed her least until the next group of visitors came by.  

This kitty was at Laura Plantation.  He/she was content to roll around in the dirt and enjoy the sunshine.  

Mom bean wasn't able to pat him/her...that's okay by us!

The last kitty she met was this girl, with her owner, in a used bookstore in New Orleans just off Canal Street.

Mom bean says this kitty is 17 years old and just a sweet heart.

Okay mom, we get were missing us so much you had to find other kitties to get your fix.  Just remember, we might not be as furgiving next time!  

Have a great day efurrybody!  We're off to start catching up with all our furriends.

The calm before the storm

Hi efurrybody!  Mom bean says the sticky bean is on his way to our house.  We figure we better get in our naps before he shows up.

I'm lounging on the mom bean's bed. 

Sasha is curled up in his favorite spot on the couch.  

But we both know neither spot is safe from the sticky bean!

Have a great weekend efurryone!

A very public Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.  

This photo is proof that a kitty has no hope of getting any privacy around here from mom bean and that darned flashy box.  Even the snowman is getting in on the act.

I think the mom bean is just jealous of my flexibility.  

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

I wants what I wants

Hi efurrybody, it's Sasha here today. 

Don't mind me as I'm a tired old kitty.  Mom bean says I do a lot of sleeping these days.

She also says I'm getting pretty picky about what I will and won't eat.  Sometimes I eat the Fancy Feast and sometimes I don't.  Though I'll still eat the kibble, as least three pieces at a time. 

The other day we ran out of FF (shame on you mom bean) and she gave us some salmon from a can.  I drank up the juice and left the salmon.  

So the mom bean went shopping and brought home three different kinds of FF and some Whiskas.  Saku appawently has less discerning taste as he ate that Whiskas stuff, no problem.  Me, I sniffed it and walked away. 

Mom bean said fine, and switched me back to the FF.  I ate okay yesterday morning, then turned my nose on it in the evening.  She went and got it later when I came to bed and I ate it all then.  I think I like all the attenshun.  MOL!

I'm not losing weight though, just doing lots of sleeping and when I'm awake I nearly drive the mom bean crazy with my talking.  I keep reminding her I'm 18 years and 7 months old.  At my age, I know what I want and I want what I know.  So pay attenshun mom!

Have a great week efurrybody!

Who me?

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.  
I sure had the mom bean guessing yesterday.  She came into the bedroom a couple of times, trying to figure out where a funny noise was coming from.

All she found was me.  I sat there all handsome and calm as long as she was in the room.

Except this one time when she found me putting the bitey on a piece of paper.  

She didn't even yell at me, 'cuz she was laughing so hard.  She seriously thought there might be a mouse in the house!  As if...I'd catch that thing and put the bitey on it too.

See this?  Mom bean's says it is gonna be a hat for the sticky bean.  This is the third time she's started it, 'cuz I've run away with it a couple of times.  Purrhaps she should make me one first. MOL!

Have an easy Sunday efurrybody!

Not looking Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!
I has my paw over my face because I don't want to look. Not just at the mom bean's flashy box either.

This is what I don't want to look at.

 Yep, that's the view from the cat tree today.  Geez mom, you could've made it less fuzzy.  Maybe she didn't wanna look either.

Have a great Caturday efurrybody.  I plan to nap through it.

My new life as an only kitty

Hi efurrybody, it's Sheldon here today from the town of Melville. 

Things are pretty good here at my new home.  The sticky bean likes to chase me but I've found places where I can hide.

This is part of the closet in the new mom bean's room.  It's a great place to hang out 'cuz it has a window with sunshine.  Now if I can just convince the new mom bean to put a kitty bed up here I'm set. 

But it's all good as the bedroom has windows that lets in lots of sunshine so I generally nap on her our bed.  

I has my furry own cat tree too (some furriends of the old mom bean gave it to me!).  I like to sit on top of it, cuz it takes a while for the sticky bean to climb on it.  I hear him coming and I can get away.

My new mom bean gives me stinky goodness once a day and I has a bowl of dry food in the pantry.  So far, the sticky bean hasn't found that yet.  I also have my furry own water dish on the counter in the bathroom.  Efurrything has to be out of the way of that sticky bean...he's sneaky!

Speaking of sneaky, here I am hiding out under his trampoline.  The old mom bean says I better be careful.  No worries, I'll hear him coming and I'll get out of there.

Oh, and she says that Stanley has a new home too.  He got to move to a farm where he can chase mice and burds.  The new mom bean was a bit sad about that, but since he's an outside kitty it makes more sense.  So far, I'm okay with being an only kitty.  I get lots of lap time with the new mom bean, I got lots of sunny places to nap in, and I don't have to share the stinky goodness. Yep, life is good!

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

Happy Caturday

Hi efurrybody, it's Sasha here today.

It may not look like it, but I'm sharing my chair with the mom bean.  There is lots of room for her to sit but does she appawciate my efforts?  No, she does not!  She says she purrfurs to sit where I'm sitting and I should sit on the other side of the chair.  Na-ah!  This is the furry best spot and I'm staying put.

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

It's back!!

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.

Nope, I'm not talking about Sheldon...did you think I might be?  

It's the cat tree, back in the window in the noisy box room!  It has spent the last several months in the sunny room.  But now that the sunny room isn't furry sunny or warm, mom bean moved it back where I wanted it to be.  

There has been a whole lot of noise around here the last couple of days with the mom bean moving lots of stuff around, using the sucking masheen (even on the cat tree!), and splashing waters on the floor.  Do you know she gets mad at me when I do that?  Who can understand these beans?

Anyway, it's an easy Sunday here, with lots of lounging and napping to be done.  Sheldon got his easy on earlier this week; mom bean says I have to share this photo of him in his new place. Appawently the stairs are a great place to take a nap.                                                                                                                                          Have a great easy Sunday efurrybody!

Sheldon's new home

Hi efurrybody, Sheldon here today reporting in from my new home.

The old mom bean and brofur brought me here yesterday.  I was such a good kitty in the car, I only sang the song of my people for a short time before I settled down and took a nap.  When I got to the new house, I was a little nervous 'cuz that sticky bean was there and he is noisy!!!  

But pretty soon I found some hiding spots.  I especially like the new mom bean's bed.  There is lots of sunshine in the room, I know I'll get lots of good naps in there.  

The new mom bean called this morning to say I'd found the litter box last night (as if I wouldn't!), and had a good supper last night of stinky goodness.  

I'm going to be an only kitty for awhile, at least until the colds are over.  Stanley decided to stay where he is, as he likes his bean Andy.  Plus the old mom bean says he wouldn't be happy being an indoor kitty all the time.  I'm kind of happy about that and I know I'll get lots of exercise as that sticky bean likes to chase me.  Luckily, I can run up and down the stairs way faster than him.

The unpacking is almost done but there are lots of empty boxes to explore, I have a box of toys that Sasha and Saku sent with me, I've found a great place to look outside, and I even got a new cat tree!  I think I might like this place.  

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian furriends and have a great day efurrybody!!!

*The cat tree was given to us by Friday night dinner friends.  It's similar to the one here, but a different color.  I'm sure Sheldon and Eli will have fun playing on it. :)

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here today.   
I am napping on the mom's chair under her tippy tap machine. It's nice and warm and best of all, the sticky bean is napping too!  But not near me.  I like that a lot 'cuz I'm not a fan of that little bean.  He's loud and likes to chase me.

He also likes to chase Sheldon too.  I'm okay with that and Sheldon doesn't seem to mind as much as I do.  

Mom bean says that Sheldon will be moving with the sticky bean and the bean sisfur soon.  But she's convinced the sisfur that maybe Sheldon* should stay here until most of the unpacking is done.  Don't tell her but I think mom bean is going to miss that silly kitten.

Time for me to finish my nap before that sticky bean wakes up. Then it will be time to hide and find another place to nap.

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

*Stanley, the outside cat that lives at the old house won't move either.  I think it will be easier for the two of them if there isn't as much kerfuffle happening.  - Mom bean

Sunshine on my/our furs

Makes us happy!  

Hi efurrybody, we're all here today.  Even the mom bean!* It's nice and sunny in our sun room.  AND warm too!  

 Saku: I'm hanging out under the chair.  Mom bean says the sticky bean and our bean sisfur are away for a few days but I'm not taking any chances!

 Sasha:  I purrfer full on sunshine.  I am 18.3333333.... years old you know.  These old bones need some heat. 

If the sticky bean does show up I'll run.
Sheldon:  I is being camera shy.  Mom bean had to chase me around the sun room until I hid under the love seat.  Even then I didn't make it easy for her, MOL!

Thanks to all our furriends for the good wishes about my move. Mom bean says the other mom bean (sisfur) has been reading about introducing kitties to each other.  She's made some plans to give us each some space of our own for the first while. Paws crossed we behave ourselves.

Have a wonderful sun-filled day efurrybody!

*I'm home this afternoon after a gastroscopy this morning.  All is well but it is sure nice to have an afternoon off while the weather is so nice!

Kitty worries

Hi efurrybody, Sheldon here today!  `

Do I look a bit worried in this picture?  I am, just a bit 'cuz the sticky bean followed mom bean down the stairs.  That kid sure can ruin a good nap.

I'm hanging out on my other mom bean's furrniture.  I has another bit of a worry, 'cuz I just found out that I'm going to be moving too!

That's right, I is going to leave this house and go to another one with the other mom bean and the sticky bean and a cat named Stanley.  I don't really 'member him but appawently we lived together when I was just a little kitten.  Mom bean says he wasn't furry nice to me then but she thinks that now I'm bigger I'll hold my own.  Well, I sure don't want to hold his...whatever!

The other mom bean says she will keep us separated for a while, one of us stays in her sleeping room, while the other has the run of the house and efurry day we'll switch.  She figures since neither of us "owns" the house yet we'll eventually come to tolerate each other.

I know I is going to miss Saku and Sasha.  Saku is fun to torment play with and Sasha is the best napping buddy a kitty could want.  Mom bean says she hopes someday Sheldon and I will become good furriends too.  I sure hopes so too!

No time to worry now's time for my Sunday nap!  Have a good one efurrybody!

Quiet time

Hi efurrybody, Sheldon here.

As you can see I'm having a nice quiet nap. It's been a furry busy, and noisy morning here in our house.

First, it took a little lot of time to wake up the mom bean to feed us.  We all worked together to convince her it would be worth her while to get out of bed to feed us.  Sasha does it best 'cuz he can holler!

Then, we had some run around time with the sticky bean.  I got up on top of the cupboards which he found furry funny.  Hey, it's one of the few places the little tyke can't climb to...he's got so good at it's scary.  Even my cat tree isn't safe anymore.  

Next, some other beans showed up and took away the table and chairs from the food room.  Somebody left the door to the garage open so me and Saku went exploring.  We sure left in a hurry when the mom bean came out and hollered at us....she's as loud as Sasha!

Finally, the other beans left, the sticky bean went for his nap, so it's our turn now.  ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Have a great day efurrybody!

Scorching Sunday

Hi efurrybody, it's Saku here today from the sunny room.  

Yep, even though it's pretty warm in here I'm enjoying the heat and the breeze from the fan.

As you can see, I've mastered the best way to get the necessary (and most) coverage of sunlight and cool'ish breeze.

Mom bean says I'll have to come indoors pretty soon though as the house is getting furry warm.  I don't know what 33C means (with a humidex of 39C) but for she says for beans that's pretty hot.

But for me, even with my fur coat, it's purrfect!!

Have a great Sunday efurrybody!

Easy on Sunday

Hi efurrybody, Sheldon here today.

There's a whole lot of this going on around here today.  Even the sticky bean has gotten into the act with a long morning nap that stretched well into the afternoon.  Mom bean says she is glad she's not his mom....she suspects he'll be up 'til all hours tonight.  Hey I'll have someone to play with!

Have a great Sunday efurrybody!

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Hip, hip, hooray!

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here today with some really big news!!!

Mom bean told us that in a couple of months the sticky bean and our bean sisfur are moving. Hooray, that means we'll finally have peace and quiet for our naps.  AND I won't have to worry about the sticky bean trying to pull my tail anymore!!

How many naps do you s'pose that will be?

Caturday helper

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.

I was helping mom bean with her breakfast this morning by holding down the new tablecloth.  But you know what, it was just laying there all flat and boring.  So I did a little it's just purrfect!  

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

On my own

Hi efurrybody, it's Sheldon here today.  

I has the sun room all to myself today! Well, at least for the next little while anyway.

The sticky bean is having a nap with his mom bean, and my brofurs are sleeping somewhere else.

That means I get to hang out wherever I want, even on the back of the chairs. Mom bean says my angel sisfur Sami used to do that too.

The whiffies are allllll mine too!  Mom bean says I have been a furry good boy and not scratching at the screens lately so the windows can be opened.  If I'd only known....

MOL, I made mom bean work to get this photo.  I'm hiding under the sticky bean's trampoline.  She had to get down on the floor to find me.  

Oh, oh I think I hear that sticky bean hollering.  Time to go hide somewhere else.  

Have a great day efurrybody!

One of these things

Is not like the others.....can you tell which one?

No, not in this photo, in the next one.  

Mom bean says sometimes she can hardly tell where Sheldon starts and Sasha ends.

And then there's me, Saku.  She says I'm one of a kind!  Sometimes she laughs when she says it but I still think it's a compliment.

Besides, we is getting the hots this weekend. This kitty doesn't want to curl up and nap with anybody when it's hot.  Mom bean's knitting...that's another story.  

Have a great weekend efurrybody!

Sunday, July 1, 2018

Happy Canada Day!

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today. 

We want to wish all of our Canadian furriends a happy Canada Day!  Mom bean says our country is 151 years old today.  That's like a bazillion gazillion kitty naps. 

Mom bean brought us home a prezzie from the store too.  See my 'stache?  It's a nip 'stache for our toy stash, MOL!  Actually there are two.

Sheldon got the other one and he went nip crazy!!!  

Have a great day efurrybody!

The sticky bean is leaving!

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.

Check this out!  Do you see that teddy bear strapped down in the suitcase?  Can you guess what this means???

Yep, the sticky bean is going away for a long time*, but mom bean says not furever.  Sigh....

I'm making sure to send some of my furs with him, cuz I think he'll miss me.  I sure won't miss him....well, maybe a little bit.  He does drop fuds on the floor sometimes.

Have a great week efurrybody!

*D and Eli are flying out to B.C. on Tuesday to visit Eli's daddy and family for just over two weeks.  It will be quiet (and a heck of a lot less messy) around here.

Caturday annoyance

Hi efurrybody, Saku here today.  Do you see my airplane ears?  I am a little upset.  
The sticky bean has discovered climbing and he took over our cat tree.  It's a CAT tree kid!  

Mom bean has moved the tree to the sunny room so we can still watch the birds.  But I liked this channel on cat television!

Sheesh, do we have to share efurrything with this bean?  

Have a great Caturday efurrybody!
