Tocks Thursday!

Today is:

toctober-2016

We didn’t know Derby but we are celebrating TockTober nonetheless! Here are two extraordinary tocks!

First up is BobbieSue – she of the tailless tocks! Mom tried to get a good photo of her but unless she’s asleep its no use – she runs from the camera – or maybe its mom!

Here are my fabulous tocks! Quite nice if I do say so myself! This was taken Tuesday while we were waiting on the cable man.1020-tock

Speaking of the cable/internet saga – it seems the ‘maintenance crew’ from Cox Cable (who, by the way, suck – if you have a choice of cable/internet providers do NOT go with these incompetent fools – these are mom’s words, not mine) came out to replace the line but decided the tree was in the way and said it was a ‘liability’ so they did NOTHING! Even left the old wire in the tree.

1020aMom spoke with them last night and afterward was quite upset. So upset that I had to hold her paw while she tried to go to sleep later.

1020-c I lay right next to her head and purred, at least until I fell asleep. Now she has to call the landlord, have the tree trimmed and then call stupid Cox again to have them come out. The way I see it – and the cable guy on Tuesday saw it, the incompetent maintenance fools crew couldn’t see they could string the wire from a different location and all would be well. So we are taking up residence at the library  until further notice!

So we don’t end on a sour note, here’s a sweet photo of Granmama’s  kitty, Moose, giving her a loving look. 1020b Moosey is an old sweetie and the last of his brothers. We hope he is with us for a long time!

Friday Fill-in Time!

It’s Friday Fill-in time!!  001

1. It is good to have a spare can of cat food because you never know when a kitty will show up to the table outside!stock-illustration-17779057-cartoon-cat-with-full-bowl-animal-food-kitten

2. I don’t understand why walking around with your cell phone in your hands is/are so popular. Mom saw a girl coming out of the 7-11 the other day with her phone in her hand. What is so important that you have to carry your phone in your hand (rather than a purse or pocket) into a convenience store for less that 5 minutes?14841099-illustration-of-a-girl-talking-on-mobile-on-a-white-background-stock-vector

3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was  nothing has happened to me but when mom was in her 20s she went to see the first Halloween movie at Military Circle Mall and when it ended it was after the mall closed and she and her friend were parked way on the other side. They had to walk all the way around the mall in a darkened parking lot at midnight after seeing that scary movie. Mom said she couldn’t sleep all night and had nightmares for a long time. She never saw another Halloween movie and certainly not ones late at night!!!halloween-simon-2Rather than have a scary picture of that movie on my blog, I’m showing you one of our Halloween photos from last year. You know that’s Simon!!

4. My favorite Halloween tale is Orange, Black, Pumpkin Patch. Don’t know it? Its the story mom wrote and illustrated with me and Simon as the stars! She usually posts it on OrangeMarmaladePress during Halloween week but if you want a sneak peek, click on the book cover below.

On another a note, we were asked why does everybody avoid PeggySue (see our answers from our Sunshine post this past Thursday)? Here’s why – and some of the answers include mom, although she doesn’t avoid PeggySue like us!

  • She doesn’t know how to play nice – she bites and claws
  • She doesn’t enjoying petting – mom can give her just one stroke or two and she bites mom’s hands and fingers
  • She’s a lurker – she hides around corners and doors and when we walk by she attacks! She even attacks mom!
  • She steals our treats – she inhales her treats so fast she’ll eat what’s left of everybody else’s. To prevent her from doing that mom gives her more treats (to keep her eating longer) than the rest of us and that’s not fair.
  • We were a genteel house of older cats who lived a dignified life – now we have the lightening fast PeggySue running around being a rambunctious young whippersnapper who is driving us all to distraction!!! For some reason unbeknownst to us, mom sees a lot of potential in her as she settles down. When will that be, Mom?
