Finally Friday with Julie and Critters


Julie: Hi friends.
Are you ready for the weekend?
I am always ready and  this week,mum is really ready.
 She said it was a long week.
I thought weeks were all the same length.
Oh well, let's not try to understand humans!
I am just happy to be looking forward to porch time.


It will be nice and sunny and not quite as hot as it has been.
I will continue to enjoy this couch and relax.
My siblings will no doubt join me.


We saw some interesting critters lately.
Some are scary to humans, so be warned!

Mum was out a while ago and saw Sammy Seagull. 
He was looking for food.  Some person tossed him a morsel
and he caught it.
I bet he has plenty of practise.


Mum found this Garden Snake  in the house.
I did NOT let it in. It got in all by itself.


Mum used  a grabber to put it in the pail then took him
outside and let him go.
I never even got to play with him.


This fellow got in the house too.
Mum was not impressed at all!
This is a Fishing or Wharf Spider.
They are similar to Wolf Spiders.
It may not look like it, but this fellow was not full grown.
The piece of wood is about 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inches).

It was pretty funny watching mum try to use the broom
to get him in the pail. Eventually she prevailed 
after he ran into the bathroom.


A hot week,critters in the house and busy times for mum.
Yup, we are all ready for the weekend and for some
FUN !

We purr you have FUN too !

Georgia Says-Lots Going on at Our Vet's Place



Georgia: Saturday morning mum came and got me  pretty 
early. She said I had to go to the Vet for 9AM.
It was my semi-annual visit.


While I am not crazy about going there, I was pretty relaxed.
The Vet Tech were impressed that I was so calm too.
I got lots of attention,especially from the one in training..
The Vet was pretty happy with me  and said I looked great.
She stole some blood to do a wellness test.
Mum should hear by Monday how I did.


At  lunchtime, mum went back to the Vet alone.
They were having their annual "Open House"
They have raffle baskets and tours of the facility.
They also had a BBQ.
Mum took a picture of the staff. 
My Vet is in the front with the long pants and behind he is her hubby.
He did the BBQ.
The girl in the colourful top is the Tech on  training
experience. She was nice to me.


This is the truck the Vet uses for making house calls
to horses and some other farm  critters.


Those tools look pretty scary! I am glad  that the Vet 
does not use these tools on me.
Those rasps are way to big for my mouth.
They would fit in Vidock's mouth though !


As usual, Julie got lots of porch time.


Go on over and see what she was doing .
She is posting at House Panthers.

Julie: Mum Was Away for the Day !





Julie: Well friends, mum was gone all day Saturday and did not
get back until it was very late!
I will cut her some slack as she had a very important 
birthday party to attend.


Her Uncle Donny celebrated his 102nd birthday on July 5!
Mum attended a party for him on Saturday.
It was held at the Seniors home in Annapolis Royal,NS

On the was in, she saw this couple who were coming from
 a function at the seniors home.


Here is mum's Uncle Donnie with the youngest member 
of the family. His Great Nephew Edward is 6 weeks old!

102 years and 6 weeks is quite an age gap!


Here is her Uncle with  2 more Great Grandchildren.
They are Edward's older siblings.


When they went back to mum's cousin's place, it was suppertime
and also milking time. Little Edward's parents run the family farm now.
You can see the cows starting to cross the road.


Mum's cousin's hubby is helping his son.
 He has the flag incase a car comes down the road.


Here we see Gad,son and Grandson herding the cows.


Gate closed, the cows head to the barn.
That is little Edward' s Dad.


There was lots of food and kids.
They played soccer in the backyard.
They have a lot of room.


Mum was happy to see two cats at the gathering too.


These cats were lucky. With lots of people  and lots of food,
they got lots of snacks!


Mum was home late and we had supper late.
We were glad she came back though and  it's not like she does 
this a lot so we will let her off...this time.

 Sunday was pretty nice and I was on the porch.
You can see what I saw over at

Our Gotcha Day!


Today is our Gotcha Day!!

Georgia and JJ were adopted on July 7, 2006.
Julie was adopted on July 7, 2012

She knows that her life was enriched SO much
since we became  a part of it.
We sat that the feeling is mutual!

We love Gotcha Days.

Mancat Monday with JJ



JJ: Hi there friends. I am doing a post today.
Mum thought it would be a good idea as 
Friday is my Gotcha Day.
Actually, it is all of our Gotcha Days.
However, this Gotcha Day is a special one for me.
We will be celebrating my 20th year !

Mum adopted me in 2007. I was adopted with my 
late brother Treasure and  a sister called Tiger.
We did not appear on the blog at first, but then
mum decided that the blog would be more interesting
with a lot of cats.


Because I was adopted before mum got me, my records are 
not very complete.
The one record  mum did find shows I was around in 1997!
For that reason, we decided I should have my own post.
It is not every day that a cat gets to be 20 years old!

Oh...mum could  you please move this stuff out of my way?


There that's better.
At my annual check up, the Vet was very pleased with me.
I had gained weight,which is good for older cats, and have
been able to keep muscle loss to a minimum. That is
another problem with older cats.
I am able to jump small distances. I jumped on this table!
I do sleep a lot, but then most cats do, hahaha.


My hearing is not the best and mum says I have that
"old cat yowl". Gee! I just like to sing.


The only medication I take is a pill a day for my Thyroid and
a little Aventi for kidney support.
My appetite is very good too.
The only bad thing we can think of is that it is harder for me to 
groom all my floof.
Mum tries to help me with that , but I am not to crazy about that.
It is a constant battle.
All in all, I am a happy cat and enjoy life.
I also enjoy sunshine on my old furs and a cozy sleeping  spot.


I also like company and often get some from Julie.
She is a cute little girl and likes to be around me.
I also like snoozing with Georgia.
I am very easy going. Mum calls me the Groover.
Hey, life is groovy after all !


These pics are from a sunny day.
This past weekend was not sunny.
We had a lot of rain.
It stopped Sunday around lunchtime so I went out  yo
the porch. Julie was there.

To see what she thought about the weekend,
pop over to   House Panthers !

The mum: Georgia where are you going ?


I need some pictures for your blog post.
Your friends want to see you.


Georgia: How is this pose?

Much better.


JJ: It's the weekend and I am happy.
But then, I'm always happy.


Isn't that right mum?

Yes JJ, you are a very happy cat.
You are the groover,always taking it easy.


 Julie: Weekends mean porch time and mum time.
I like any time I get to hang out with mum.


I also love Critter TV !
There is a lot going on at this time of year.


We are having lots of FUN this weekend.
July 1st is Canada Day and Canada is 150 years old!

Mum took this picture on the waterfront on the boardwalk
at Halifax Harbour.


We had some special visitors too.
The tall ship Esmeralda from Chile.


These US navy ships.


.Mum was excited to see this ship.
This ship is an aircraft carrier and we do not see these ships very often.


Mum also saw these Canadian Forces guys.
They were friendly and waved at her.


Mum has more pictures from her outing that she will share.
For now...Let's get this weekend started
so we can have some FUN !!

WE purr you all have FUN too!

Monday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: Ack!  Ack!


Yikes! I think something caught in my throat!
Thank goodness it's gone now.


There! Now you can take my picture.
Everything is OK now.


JJ: It was a pawsome weekend to be on the porch. 
It was warm and pleasant.


My biggest decision was which way I wanted to face
when I had my snooze.
I think this way.


My little sister Julie was also on the porch.


You can see more of her porch time at


So pop over for a visit.
