If any kitty in the Blue household knows how to take it Easy on Sunday, it is Mauricio. He put the letter “M” in the word BUM (Biggest Underachiever/Useless Mauricio). He has many humans and cats bamboozled (with his Cat Scout activities and Lion Rank) into believing that he is an active, helpful and resourceful cat. But as evidenced by the photos below, he is nothing more than a Bum in cat’s fur.

We are not complaining about Mauricio being a Bum. In fact, the only time we get any peace and quiet is when he’s asleep. When he’s awake, he never stops talking, complaining and whining. So we are hoping that he spends plenty of time being extra bummy today.

We suspect many of our furiends are taking it Easy today as well. Just don’t sleep your lives away. Try to spend some time playing with your humans, nomming treats and watching birdy TV.

Finally…thank you friends and furiends for all the well wishes, purrs and prayers you have been sending our mommy. She really needs them. She plans to tell you a little more about the scorpion sting and what’s been going on with her in our “Monday Meowsings” post.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Mau, Sampson is admiring your Easy Skills. He is glad he has such a great “big brother,” and is taking notes on how to improve his Easy.

He also sends his love to Astrid!

What’s wrong with letting a sleeping cat lie? Mauricio needs his sleep to be active.

More healing purrz for your human. My Pop’s a scorpio but he’s not poisonous. Hope you get better soon.

Mau, so how is it you’ve achieved so much in Cat Scouts? I’m the BUM around here, too. The mom is grateful when I’m snoozing because otherwise I’m causing trouble…like trying to get more foods to eat. Enjoy your easy, buddy!

And we’re purring mega purrs for your mom. We didn’t know she was still having so many problems because of that nasty scorpion bite. How awful! We hope she gets better real soon. You guys take good care of her, okay?

Poor Mauricio – being accused of BUMMING it when really it’s what we cats do best! It’s on our official “resume” – all of us have it there……being a bum and napping it up are two of our most pawsome capabilities and we do them with ease (no pun intended). Since Cat Scouts has been “resting” we cats have been doing more of that than usual…..Mauricio has the right idea. I intend to be a BUM myself today – it’s a sunny Sunday – perfect for BUMMING. We’re sorry your scorpion bite has taken away the fun of the beautiful weather for you Miss Janet and hope that soon you’ll be back doing all the things you love………..meanwhile – purrrrhaps you should take a page from Mau’s book – be a bum and rest up!

Hugs, Sammy
