At least in my opinion!
The humans went out around lunch time yesterday. They were away for about two hours. Some of us decided to stay in the house and some out on our screened deck.
When Mom and Dad arrived home, they had presents for us. We got a new scratcher. It’s also a lounger. And it came with NIP. We have pretty well decimated our old cardboard scratcher. And Mom’s been complaining about all the itty-bitty pieces of cardboard all over the floor and stuck to Giulietta’s furs. So, this was probably more of a gift for her than us. But, heck, we’re not going to complain.
We also got two new crunchy balls. They are one of our favorite toys, but we can’t seem to keep our paws on them. We think Mom hides them from us, but she says we lose them under appliances, dressers and other furniture. We’re not buying that lame excuse for one minute.
That made for a pretty exciting day for all of us. But I got an even better surprise.
Mom decided to work in the garden in the afternoon after she noticed bunches of dandelions in the side yard. She hates dandelions and wild onions (not as much as English ivy and honeysuckle, but they’re right up there).
Anyway, she took me with her. Of the five youngsters, I am the only one who gets authorized outdoor privileges. I don’t get to go without supervision, but I am not complaining. Mom will let me accompany her a few times a year as I am almost always a good girl. I stay close by and report to her whenever she calls me. Well, at least most of the time.
Before MacKenzie went to the bridge he was Mom’s yard snoopervisor, following her and plopping down nearby. Misty May has taken over that position, so when I am in the garden I’m free to explore.
Mommy was out for three hours. I only got to stay out for two, but again…not complaining. When I came in I had a nice nap on the new scratcher. Like I said, best day ever!
Purrs and hugs, Fiona
I love the photos and the story! Thanks for visiting Amanda’s Books and More and leaving a comment. Have a great week!
Hi Fiona, that looks like a lot of fun 🙂 I have full garden privileges, so am one happy kitty. I am so envious of your new lounger. I’ve been nagging mum for ages to get one!! 😉
Well! Hello there, one and all. It has taken our hu-mom furever to find you, and your bloggie! Sometimes she is not the sharpest claw on the paw. We thank you for your many visits to us, and we’re happy to have now found all of you … hugs and purrs, from Maggy and Zoey, the
We luffs Misty May’s picture! She is the epitome of purrfect cat napping. We does not has a garden, just middle-of-the-big-city-cement. Sigh.
Fiona, we have that scratcher too. Wally LOVES it. He’s destroyed 2 of them already and he’s working on our latest one. We all love lounging on it.
That sounds like a really great day! We just have all this “used” cardboard. Our human had a whole parade of kitties who used to go out with her, but Mimi is the only one who does now, and she needs to be snoopervised herself. But she hates English ivy too, you two can get together and take care of it all so we can go off and do cat things.
That does sound like a wonderful day! We wish we could go out to explore but Mommy says it’s much too dangerous in our area (cars). So we’ll just have to contend with snoopervising Mommy from the catio.
And we love your new lounger! Mommy got sick of all the tiny bits of cardboard from our scratchers so she stuffed them into a box so now the bits stay in the box. This makes her happy and us happy too!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Wow that does sound like the bestest day ever! Hope your weekend has 2 more bestest ever days.
Jada and Scully
That all looks like sooooo much fun! Have a terrific weekend everyone!
Nice new scratcher/lounger!! Especially if nip is involved…..and what a BOOOOTIFUL garden you all have to snoopervise – very springish. I would think that cement bench would be nice and snuggly too if it’s been soaking up the sun!
Kitty Hugs, Sam
I’m not a super big fan of cardboard scratchers but my Mom likes them. Enjoy! Love, Cody
Cat-O-Cat that really does sound like a wonderfur day! I told Rumpy to as fur one of those there scratcher beds as he needs it. He has worn out our old one and is starting to eye the couch up again.
We know your Mommy appreciates all the help you lovely ladies are giving her while she works in the garden; great photos of you beauties enjoying the outdoors!…Nice scratcher/lounger, but our favorite part of your awesome gift would be the nip!!MOL…Have a fun weekend, precious friends…kisses…Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat
Cute scratch lounges! Yay gardening!
That’s one pawesome scratcher! We need to get our mommy outta the house so maybe she’ll come back with one of those too! She won’t leave though because of the strangers here remodeling the human litter box and she’s neurotic about them leaving doors open. She’s a huge worry wart. It does look like a lot of fun outside though Fiona!
What a glorious day! THe only thing better would bes catching a mousie!
Sounds like a purrfect day to us! Happy Friday, furriends!
What wonderful pics! Y’all look so pretty!
What wonderful pictures! Y’all look so pretty! Ellie

You look so happy outside. Sigh! I haven’t been able to get out yet this year cuz my humans say it’s too cold for them to be out with me.
