In the Dark

You can sure tell the nights are getting colder, MSN-Emoticon-frozen-122the fur babies are cuddling in close and they want to be under the feather blanket, not only on top. AddEmoticons04274 (granted, it is a time controlled thing, because there is such a thing as being too warm, although Snoop never thought so.) MSN-Emoticon-155 You can always tell when they feel they need to be warmer than they were though, AddEmoticons00950-1you feel this tiny paw reach under the blanket to pat your shoulder or arm. addemoticons00954 22-10-14 “Lift the blanket so I can get under it too, mama.” addemoticons00935 22-24-21 Can they get under it without help? AddEmoticons00949 Definitely… will they? AddEmoticons00937 Only if they have to. AddEmoticons00916 They do like being catered to a little.  AddEmoticons00926Thena is the one who is not shy about getting close in the night, she likes her cuddles and wants to be close to your face, the closer the better.dd27   (As the cat hair in my mouth can testify.)  AddEmoticons04236 10-17-45Tath, is less obvious, but I can tell the difference between them, even in the dark now. AddEmoticons00926 Tath is heavier and bigger. cat 3 They exchange places and when he cuddles in close (yes, he pretends to be independent in the daylight, but at night he gets right in there too. cat 14  His little blue eyes should be green at times too, cat 22I have witnessed his actions in the night when he thinks I can’t see.  I have felt them too.  I call it the ‘down and out’.  It is where he jumps on the bed, hoping Thena isn’t where he wants to be and, when she is, he jumps at her. addemoticons00932 22-11-37 (Straight up into the air, to land on top her little curled up body, to land with all 4 feet on her) cat 47  She has the softest meows, until he lands on her. cat 50 She can also go ballistic on him, after catching her breath… and the chase is on.  cat 32

My time of relaxation seems to be something they are enjoying. smiley-happy120 I sit back on the chair, put my feet up, read… and 2 cats join me, one to lie across one shoulder and the second one across the other. nervous-934 It doesn’t always work that way though, sometimes one will come to lie on top the other. smiley-confused005 It is with a heavy sigh and looks of retribution that the one underneath leaves, not much longer the chase is on. AddEmoticons04263 (Did I mention there is no silk flowers left in the house, there is a reason for this.)  cat 53 Every time I mention it to a visitor the two cats (no longer kittens) look at me as if to say, “Well, I need a place to sit too,” cat 28 Reply, “It doesn’t have to be on top the china cabinet.” making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon Then again, what do I know? AddEmoticons04279

How is my vacation from writing coming along, you ask? AddEmoticons04274 Well, I am almost through book 7, and my mind is twitching.  AddEmoticons04259 I don’t think that is a bad thing, but it could signal an early end to this time off.  AddEmoticons04267Yes, the pen doth beckon.   cat 53Tath has been keeping it moving, so it is in shape for me. AddEmoticons04258 He is such a thoughtful kitty cat. cat 44 I hear it calling for help, as it gets flicked under the couch, china cabinet, chairs, into corners, under the beds, under the buffet.  nervous-934 (I swear that cat is more active than he looks, because most of the time he epitomizes the statement, lazy tomcat.) cat 22 I have plans for, at least, 5 more books, before I pick up the pen again. AddEmoticons04259 Yes, I know there is 2 more weeks left in the month. smiley-happy120 Yes, I know I said I was not going to write all month, (working on it), this doesn’t necessarily mean that I won’t get into different areas. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon (Looking into the sky, checking for cloud cover to explain the sound of thunder, or is that the laughter of the Gods above?) nervous-934 Stick out tongue as clear blue sky, what they don’t know…Scared_smiley

Well Thanksgiving is over here, Halloween is looming, and so is another visit from little bro. AddEmoticons04258 10-25-31 He will be coming for Halloween. dog5 Should be a busy time.fairy-1505  I am planning the menus already… Beef roast, with the potatoes, carrots and onions cooked with it.  BBQ spare ribs.  Fried chicken. AddEmoticons04231 He usually eats alright when he comes and what is a matter of who has dropped in to see him when he is here. AddEmoticons04263 Last time we had a take out mean (Chinese) and lots of leftovers.  AddEmoticons04267Well, it is time to go, going to do a quick dust of the floors, someone has spread cat hair all over EVERYTHING. CatSmiley21 Until next week… be good and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do… 6088880143_491c2e2e67_s Don’t let that mean you should have a dull week.  cat 53 10-16-27

    The Dynamic Duo at it again, LOL. Poor you with two cats and trying to sleep at night. I have one dog and he can be a pain too. When it’s cool he likes to cuddle next to me (he does that all the time anyway) and under the covers-between him & hubby, I get squeezed in. 😦 So glad you are finally getting your reading in-no cheating-no writing-just reading!! Thanks for the Saturday chuckles!! 🙂
