Happy Halloween

I know this post is a little later in the day than I usually like but I wanted to wish everyone a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Be safe, too, with your moms and dads opening the door for ghosts and goblins and ghouls. We're sitting in the window waiting for our first ones now. I hope they show up soon.

Simon's Cat book

We've been so sidetracked lately that we totally forgot that we had won a copy of the new Simon's Cat book thanks to our dear old friend Timothy Dickens -- until today when Dad came home and it was sitting on the front porch! Timothy did a great review a while back, so I'll refer you to that for the big details of this great book (mainly because I haven't read it yet ...). But Mom and Dad will be reading it to us soon. We've read the first few pages, and it is great!

Thanks again to Timothy! We're so so so excited. It really made our day.

Monday update

Mom and Dad were painting our ceilings downstairs all day yesterday. That made for a very exciting day for us, because all the furniture ended up in wrong rooms. The best were the couches in the kitchen -- combining two of our favorite things! It's a very busy week this week, but we hope to be visiting and updating with some pictures.

Tattle Tail Tuesday and tocks for Derby

Can you believe we don't have a picture to post? Mom and Dad have pictures of us, but they're just sitting on the camera doing no good for anyone. The nerve of them!

It's getting pretty cool here for South Carolina. Mom and Dad keep the house kinda cool, I think so we'll snuggle with them. And it's working. They had three of us in bed with them the other night. Anyhow, I owed everyone an update, so I wanted to post real quick. I'll get the beans to get some pictures up tonight so I have something for Wordless tomorrow...

Also, Happy Birthday Derby! Here's the best 'tock picture I could come up with right now. At least the closest I could get.

And just for fun ... gorilla 'tocks from this summer's zoo trip ...

Kitten overload

Mom and Dad were visiting some friends when this bunch of kittens and their mom and dad showed up. Mom and Dad's friends live out in the country and they end up with lots of kittens and cats, so they put food and milk out for them to keep them nourished.

Mom, dad and three kittens
Here's momma cat on the left, and dad cat on the right, with the three kittens.

They're very content to hang out so long as we're on the other side of the door. But they run run run real fast the other way when we try to offer some love.

Feeding time at the backyard cat zoo
But momma cat is a good momma, and takes care of the kittens. And dad cat is very watchful, too.

Kitten pile
And they feel safe enough on the deck to form a kitten pile. And you just can't beat that!

Maggie Monday

Maggie sleeping in the warm October sun
This was Maggie all during the football game Saturday. I checked, and she has about the same thing planned for today. Sounds good to me.

Wordless Wednesday

Open window season

OK, not exactly wordless. We're so happy Samantha is home. Now let's hope Mr. Tigger follows!

Tabby Tattle Tale (and Takeover) Tuesday

Maggie checking things out
Hi! Maggie here! I've hijacked the blog to tattle on my big brother, because you know he won't tell on himself. You know how Sweet Praline got grounded for stepping outside the other night when her Mom was on the porch and the door was cracked? And you know how Samantha and Mr. Tigger went outside and are driving their Mom crazy with worry? Well, a certain big orange cat tried the same thing the other night. On Sunday we had company for dinner and when Aunt Tiff was leaving Mom was standing at the door saying goodbye and Jasper put his front two paws right over the edge of the door like he thought he was going with Aunt Tiff or something. Mom scooped him up right away and asked him if he'd lost his mind. (I think he had.) It must be this big Harvest Moon. I'm glad Jasper didn't slip out. And I sure hope Samantha and Mr. Tigger come home soon.

Maggie helping with laundry
OK, I'm done tattling on Jasper. I guess I'll give the blog back to him tomorrow. At least until he gets crazy again and needs to be tattled on.

Midnight Mancat Monday

We're still enjoying the awesome Fall weather here with some open windows. Mom and Dad are even sleeping with the windows open, even though it gets a little chilly for them in the middle of the night.

Huggy in the window with Maggie
Huggy Bear is quick to claim his spot in the window when it's open. But like a good mancat, he'll share it when he has to.
