Julie's Thoughts on Monday

Julie: Saturday was nice and sunny but a bit cool.
I did not go out for long.
Mum is not too keen on  me going outside right now.
The reason is ticks. They are out and about  and mum
does not want any to get on me or bite me.

I am not too crazy about that, but I do not want any 
 tick bites either. If that happens it means a trip to the Vet.

For now, I will be content to be indoors.
Mum can always get some grass for me.
She will have to be careful of ticks too, but she
has boots to protect her.
Ooooooo those darn ticks!!!
They spoil my FUN!

 I do like getting my own grass but I know mum 
can get nice juicy blades of grass for me.
I do like being a spoiled cat.
Hey mum, how about some belly rubs!!!

Relaxing on Friday the 13!

Julie: Today is Friday the 13th.
Many people thing this means bad luck.
They think black cats cause bad luck.
I think that is just silly and so does mum.
Mum loves my furs as they are so soft and
silky. She also loves  the look of an all black cat. 
I am happy she does because she rescued me from
the great outdoors!
I love being petted , bit I love getting
brushed more! I always hop up on this matt
when I want brushies or to just relax.
I am a very lucky and happy cat!

Do you have a favourite place  where you like to relax?

 Happy Friday the 13! 

Yup, it's just another day for me too ;)

Enjoying a Sunny Afternoon

Julie: Saturday was sunny so I decided to go out
after supper to sit for a bit.

Sometimes I hear birds and squirrels.
Sometimes it's quiet.
Sometimes I like to eat grass and sometimes
I just like to sit.

Not much was going on

 This week will be pretty nice.
The temps are going up a bit so it will be warmer.
It is really good to see the days getting longer
and warmer.
I also like having mum around. No more being
home alone and she likes it too,
 though at first it just feels like a vacation.
She does like the "no end" part about this "vacation"!

I Survived The Vet Procedure!

Julie: Well, I had my operation and the lump in my belly is gone.
Mum says people are going to study it too.
I purr they like what they see...I guess.
The Vet also stole a couple of my teeth!
I still have enough to eat though...whew!

 Now that the ordeal is over and I am back home,
I hope I do not have to face anything like that  again!
I like being home!
Thank you for all your purrs and kind thoughts.
They really helped me :)

Cloudy Cool Weather, But Good News!

Julie: I'm just sitting here thinking.
I did go outside for a bit but it was a bit cool and 
cloudy. I came back in  where it was warmer.

I like it much better when it is warm and sunny.
Mum says we might not get that weather this
weekend. She says it will be rainy and cool.

Next week will be better. The weather will be a bit 
warmer and mum has some really exciting news!
She will spend more time with me!!!
She says she is retiring!!!!!
Oh boy!!! I am excited!
Mum home all the time!
Mum is a bit excited too !

 Now, you just know that will be FUN !!!!

Welcome Back to the Chipmunk!

Julie: While mum was looking out of the kitchen
window she saw the chipmunk.
She was quite happy  to see it  as there are lots
of squirrels around!

We are not sure if this critter will stay around, but if he 
does, there will be lots of tasty seeds and sunflower
seeds. He may have to put up with birds though.
They like to drop by for a bit.

Earl the Squirrel is pretty good at chasing
competitors away. He is pretty greedy when it comes
 to foods. Not one to share.


Having said that, I must say that I don't like to share
my food either. If you want something, you need your own 
bowl. MOL!
See? I will share as long as it is in another bowl.

When I am done, I can watch Critter TV.
I really have a great view and 2 wonderful
windows for my viewing pleasure.
Have a great day friends.

Oh, mum has some exciting news(for her)
that we will share on Friday!

Dining with a view!

Julie: I like my view when I am having supper.
It is really nice when the sun is shining.

Yup! My dinner is ready to eat!

Suppertime is a really nice time.
I like my meals. I really like them with sunshine.

Mmmmmmm! This is good!

 Now that the weekend  is here I am looking forward to 
seeing how the grass is coming along. Mum says
it will be sunny and that's good for grass.
Oh boy, I'm looking forward to some FUN!!!

I hope you all have a FUN weekend too !!!

No Grass but plenty of brushings!

Julie: I went outside to check out the grass.
April is not a good month for grass where we live.

As you can see, there is NO grass.
There is green, weedy stuff, but no tasty grass!

I went inside and lay on this cozy bankie.
Mum said I looked like a black pillow.
Really mum?!!!!

I might forgive you if you offer up a treat or three.
I got lucky and got a treat...and scritches and brushings!
You know what? I am a happy cat!!

The they are FUN!!!
They feel good too!
Do you like getting brushed?

Mama Crow Gathers Nesting Materials

Julie: Earlier in the month there were crows
in the yard. There was also a Mama crow.

As you can see, she was gathering nesting 
materials, namely old grass.

That is quite a beakful Mama!!!

Away she goes!

Off to build her nest and welcome the babies.

                                                           Have you ever seen a baby crow?
                                                                              We have not.
