MONKEY & THE CHIPMUNK

by Janet Blue on May 23, 2021

Sunday Selfies: Week #354

I hope you don’t mind seeing me again today. Mom says I am just too darn cute not to be your host today. Plus, I have a story to tell you. But first, here’s my selfie.

chipmunk

 

My mom and dad call me monkey when I climb all over the cat tree and hang upside-down like this! I don’t know about that nickname, but I sure do enjoy playing on this tree!

If you enlarge my selfie, you can see the heart-shaped white furs on my chest as well as the tiny freckle on the interior rim of my right eye.

So here’s the story I promised. On Thursday Mom thought some of us were having a disagreement in the living room. After a while, she decided to check on us and found we were chasing a tiny chipmunk around the living room. None of us have admitted to bringing our new friend in the house. Until yesterday morning, he had not been seen, and Mom and Dad hoped he had found a way to escape. That’s when I showed up in the bedroom with our tiny friend in my mouth, and the chase began again. Dad thought he’d caught the little fellow in a towel, but Mr. Chipmunk had slipped away, not to be seen again all day.

After dinner last night, Mom found Lisbeth guarding the hall butler and radiator in the foyer. Yep, Mr. Chips was back, and Lisbeth had him in her sights. She carried him around the dining room with Dad trying to relieve her of her prize. Once again our little friend got away. We think he is hiding in the pantry closet and probably sneaks out at night to eat our foodables.

We have no idea how long this cat and chipmunk game will continue, but we are all hopeful that our friend will be able to return to the garden where he belongs.

Remembering Friends

The last few weeks have been particularly sad with the loss of many friends. Today, all of us want to remember three of those. We think most of you knew Speedy. He was one of our first friends, and a a long-time Sunday Selfie hopper. We will remember this cheeky bunny fondly and forever. Most of you will not know the second friend who received his wings. It is Mr. Denmaster Jeff (aka Mr. Tasty Face). He was the Cat Scouts’ Denmaster’s husband. Finally we lost a dear Cat Scout friend and patrol mate of Cooper Murphy, Tubby. We will miss each of them and send their families lots of purrs and prayers.

 

Time to Hop-a-Long

Are you ready to hop? If not, it’s time to get your selfie snapped and posted. You don’t want to miss enjoying your Easy Sunday. And you definitely do not want to let down all your friends who will be visiting here looking for you!

Finally, we wish you all a good day filled with sunpuddles and cuddles.

Purrs and paw-pats, Kizmet

p.s. I am 11 months old today.

That chipmunk game sounds like a TON of fun! I kinda miss chasing the real deal mices and skwerls and stuff. I was living in an outside colony of community cats and I deaded quite a few critters. I am quick like lightning! But the switch to pretend prey is worth it now that I am safe and well-fed and even loved by this Lady.

Kizmet–You are very handsome! And that’s a great selfie. Spitty, the kitty who came before me, had an eye freckle all his life 😉

We are awful sorry to hear about your friends–The Lady here kinda knew the Bun-Bun from afar. We are especially sorry about the DenMaster’s husband–he looks so young. XOXO

Mr. Chipmunk is doing very well with a house of cats. This little guy must be quite lucky. I’m rootin’ for Mr. Chips. Squirrels and chipmunks are my favourite watching critters. This does keep all in the house on their toes or claws,

We can’t believe with all the cats in your house that that chipmonk is still alive. One more month until your first year birthday, Kismet! Hope you get a party! XOX Xena and Lucy

Kizmet, I never get tired of seeing your cute face. I can’t believe there is a chipmunk in your house! How exciting for all of you…cats, at least! I hope he finds his way out of the house eventually. I am sad about our friends who have left us…I send lots of comforting purrs to their families. ~Ernie

We can’t wait to hear the next chapter in the visiting Mr. Chips story. Maybe you could coax him out to take his own selfie and your Dad could grab him????

We never get tried of seeing your pretty face.

It sure was a sad week. Mom is still in a funk about all the passing.

Congrats on being 11 months old Kizmet!!! We had a snake game going on (Yang brought him in the house) but since Yang had to announce LOUDLY that he had caught a snake, Daddy was able to rescue the snake right away. Good luck with Mr Chips.

We are very sad about all our friends who have gone over the rainbow bridge.

Always happy to see you as the STAR of the Selfies or any other day Kizmet! I have to say – Mom is cheering on the little chipmunk hoping he gets back outside again. Even though so far you all have just played with him, we kinda think he might prefer going home to his Mom!! Thanks for being “gentle” with him……so far! Happy Sunday.

Hugs, Teddy

We once had a baby red squirrel in our den…but it was not nearly as mnuch fun as your Chipmunk! Pipo & Minko couldn’t reach it, and we think it found its way out quickjly enough when it saw them, LOL!

Kizmet sure is very agile and acrobatic!! A Gymnast!

Yes, a very sad week, indeed.

You guys have a chipmunk in your house!”!” Wow! That is exciting! We have been known tom bring in birds and mice, but nothing as exciting as a chipmunk!
And Marv is called Monkey around here…when he first came to live with Mom it was because of his climbing and swinging and now he is called Chunky Monkey…he has gotten quite round. He’s on a diet and not happy about it. THis week has been very sad for the blogging world. |Thanks so much for your kind words on our blog about Speedy. We know that he was very good furrends with you guys and so many others in the blogosphere. We hope your small furry friend finds his way out soon!

Goodness Kismet that little chip sure has some courage, or flunked biology, to come into your house. Maybe you will all be friends and play every night but we feel that may be a stretch. It sure has been a sad week
