Sometimes we can be gross

Mom and Dad were relaxing watching TV when Josie came in to the middle of the living room and began to narf up all the food she just ate. Huggy Bear rushed over to her like he was concerned, then started to eat her ABC food, much to Mom's disgust. Dad quickly cleaned it up before he could eat any more, but that's a tough image to burn out of your mind.

Stinky Goodness Cake

I had my Stinky Goodness birthday cake tonight. As is our tradition our cake is in the shape of our year -- my 13 looks a little messy but it tasted good. Looks like I'm getting to the age where I need two cans of food to make my number.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Today is my 13th birthday! 13! Wow! Where has the time gone? I know a lot of people get stressed today because it is the deadline for filing your taxes, but don't think of it as Tax Day, think of it as Jasper's Birthday (with some paperwork) because birthdays are fun and exciting and an excuse to eat cake (or Stinky Goodness).

If I have any say about it, this is how I will spend my entire day -- laying on Dad's pillow snuggling with Mom. I can't think of much better than that.

Enjoy some Stinky Goodness today. I'll be having a Stinky Goodness cake tonight and will post some pictures.

Busted watching Netflix

Mom came home from lunch and caught me lounging on the bed watching Netflix.

Jasper watching Netflix
See ... here I am looking cute while holding the Amazon Fire Stick remote. I usually wait and watch shows with Mom and Dad, but they weren't here and I wanted to see what was going to happen. We've all Netflix cheated on someone, right?

Challenge Walk MS

I've been away from posting because Mom and Dad have been busy walking -- first training for a 3-Day, 50-Mile walk, then doing the walk. This is their third year walking in the Challenge Walk MS 3-Day 50-Mile walk. The first two years the event was in Charleston, SC. This year they walked around Savannah, Ga. It was their first time in Savannah so they were very excited to explore a new town.

Jeni carrying the flag
Mom and Dad walk for their friend Nikki, who was diagnosed with MS about nine years ago. (Well, they started walking for her, now they walk for Nikki and so many others.) Mom got to carry the Challenge Walk flag for a mile of the walk, which really meant a lot.

Tybee sunrise
They had to get up bright and early every morning, beating the sunrise each day. Here's the sunrise at Tybee Island the final day. It was a beautiful place to stay and visit.

Cat friend
Dad met a bunch of cats along the walk. This one was really friendly and Dad got to love on him for a minute while Mom had a blister looked at.

Cat friend
Dad tried to get a good picture, but this was about as good as he could get. This guy was loving the attention, and walking in circles all around Dad asking for some love. He was a mix between my orange and Maggie's tabbiness.

Slow kitties at play
Charleston was more of a dog town, and while there were plenty of dogs along the walk, Savannah felt a lot more like a cat town to Mom and Dad.

Tybee Lighthouse
There were so many wonderful sights along the walk. This is the historic lighthouse on Tybee.

This is Mom at the final mile of Day One of the walk (21.5 miles the first day). It was a beautiful walk through a canopy of trees. Mom and Dad were told this was in a scene in Forrest Gump. It is the Wormsloe State Park.

There were some zombies at one of the rest stops, too.

Finger foot
The zombies provided "finger food" and brains.

Mom and Dad also saw the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile!

Be careful, because you might get attacked by sharks on Tybee Island!

Shark attack!
Dad got attacked twice!

Chickin Lickin
On their way home Mom and Dad found a restaurant for us to visit (if we're ever willing to go for a long car ride).

Maggie's collar

Maggie's collar went missing about a month or so ago. Mom and Dad were convinced that it was in the garage and would turn up on a nice Spring day when they pulled everything out and reset the garage. But tonight Mom found it, right there in the closet where they should have seen it, except it was in my other favorite box so it was covered in Jasper fur, and also usually covered by Jasper. But we've all got our collars back on, except me because I am a master at taking mine off. Maggie's is the most important so we're warned if she's about to pounce, which she does often.

Kitty Cat Nap Time

OK, Kitty Cat Nap Time is almost all the time, but there's a particular time in our house when we all decide it's a good time to nap, and it's usually around 2:00 in the afternoon. We all retreat to our favorite spots and chill out.

Maggie has lots of spots, but on cold days like we've been having lately she really likes the heated cat bed. I'm in my favorite box. You can see how Mom and Dad put the cat bed beside my box in an attempt to lure me out of my box and into heated luxury, but come on, look at that box! I'm pretty sure this doesn't count as us snuggling, but it might be the closest we've come to napping together in some time.
