Fun in the sun

Mom and Dad have been cleaning up leaves all week. We have 2 very large oak trees in the front that dump lots of leaves (30 bags full).  I, Kirby, like to slip out the front door every time they open it with their hands full.  They can not stop me then.  Here are photos of my adventure in the flowerbed, or should it be called a leaf bed!

 I do not spray, but I go through the motions of marking my territory. 

 Dad had to spoil the fun.  I was trying to go behind the shrub and check out the neighbors yard!

Look at this nice dirt patch!  I love to roll in the dirt, but Mom could not catch it on camera 

 I will rub my scent on the wall. Maybe that will let any intruders that a fierce black panther lives here

 What, Mom?  I am not a black panther?  Just because I have white toes and chest hairs ?

Feel that warm sunshine!


More dirt!   

You can see the dirt on my furs!  I am ready to go in now, Mom.  I will take the sunshine and dirt into Angel and Max! 

It was 80 degrees yesterday.  He was having so much fun that I hated to take him, but we will not let him stay out long and never alone.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all our friends.  We hope you have had a wonderful day full of love and joy.

When Mom and Dad came home from the family down the alley's house, we got to open our Secret Paws package.     It was from Mudpie and Melissa.

We have been sniffing the box for days, begging Mom to open it.  Then when Dad got the camera, we would not get close to it!

 Look at all the packages! 

OOPS, Mom and Dad need to coordinate better! 

 OK, that is better. 

Kirby has picked put his favorite toy.  It is a Chickadee that makes noise! 

 This ball also makes birdie noises 

 Max is interested in the feather butt balls!

And so is Angel.  Good thing there were two of them! 

Angel is also checking out the Nip mouses!


 OK, Max, Mom is taking it out of the package for you!

This  Kitty Kush Catnip Grinder was a big hit with Angel and Kirby.   Max did check it out, but he has never been a nip head.

 This is a cool treat dispenser!  It is a snowman that rocks.  There are treats inside and Mom thinks we are going to make it rock and get treats out.  We fooled her.  We watched her rock it and and then ate the treats that fell out! 

That is three different flavors Party Mix, our favorite treat.  Kirby is laying on wrapping paper that has nip on it!  He rolled on it till he had nip all over himself!

 Mom got this cute box.  She does not work any longer, but we know how to spend her retirement funds! 

 And this cute bag with kitties and a pair of Kitty socks!
 And here Angel is looking over all the presents, well except the feather falls that she and Max claimed!

PSSST!  Mom you forgot the pretty purple fluffy balls!  I know there are three, but those boys do not like purple! 

Here are a couple of short videos of Max playing.

Thank you Mudpie and Melissa.  We really are enjoying all of our gifts!

Cold Sunday

Merry Christmas to all our friends!  

That snow is not this year.  It has been too cold to snow and too dry. 

This is the only way to spend a freezing day.  

It did not get up to freezing today and the wind chill has been in the teens and lower.  At one time this morning it felt like 0 outside.

What's up in the tree?

Hey, Max!  Is that you at the top of the tree?

Yeah, so what!  I am up here a lot.

Nothing, forget I ask.

Pssst!! Angel, is that you on the bottom of the tree,

Yes, Kirby, it is.  Why are you disturbing my nap?

No reason.  Most people know those two do not get along, but they have been sharing the tree lately! Mom and Dad are puzzled.

Did you notice we got a new header and a new look?   Our Sister? Aunt? What ever she is, she designed all this for us and has designed our Christmas card!  Thanks, Samantha.

Man Cat Monday

Hey, Max,We almost missed Mancat Monday!  

    What is Mancat Monday, Kirby? 

Well, Max, it is when we guys get to take over the blog since Angel has been hogging it lately! 

I heard that!!!!

Kirby, I think Angel heard you and is coming to investigate!  

Let her!   

OK, But I's outta here!

What's up with Angels tail!

It's me again, Angel, that is!  

Dad was loving on me and felt something strange about my tail. 

He ask Mom if she felt it.  Well, of course she did not, the first time I let her feel.

Later that day, Mom actually felt what Dad did!    On the front of my tail there is a bump and on the back there is a dent.  Mom thinks I broke my tail some how in the last week or so. 

It does not have a crook in it and it does not hurt, even when they run their hands up it. 

No, MOM!  I will not let you take a picture of my tail.   And it it is broke, one of  the boys

must have broken it!

Intruder Alert!

There I was sitting in my yellow chair, enjoying fresh air when I started growling!  Mom thought there was a police car outside from the noise I was making! 

Dad slowly walked to the door to see what the problem was.   

There was a tortie  intruder on the porch.  When dad got closer and called Mom over to door, we both cranked up volume!
All this time my brave brothers were standing across the room like two old scaredy-cats!

Then that intruder had the nerve to jump at me ! Both brothers high tailed it to other parts of the house.  Well, I was not having any of that so I ask Dad to tell the tortie to go home. 

 Apparently it did.  Dad could hear the squirrels talking to it as it ran home! 

Of course, neither Mom or Dad got any pictures or recordings of the event.

laundry day

Angel loves clean towels

Yea, Mom, I do! 

 Now leave me alone!

This does not show the amount of lean the towels have. I do not know how she balances there!

What is so great about that, Mom?  Look at my cute belly!

Yes Kirby, That is a cute belly! But, I an not silly enough to reach out and touch it!

Mom! You are no fun!  I promise I will not grab your arm with my claws!

What thunder storm?

We are having a thunder storm.  See how disturbed we are?

 Kirby watching the lightening out the back window

 Angel was sound asleep till Mom turned on the light! Sorry the photo is so dark

 Max just woke up to see what Mom was doing! 

Hope we do not have hail to take out the rest of the tomatoes that the frost did not get!

How time flies!

It has been a strange winter here in Texas.  We have had one frost but no freezing weather.  Plants and trees were coming out in February!  March came in like a lion with high winds and they have persisted off and on ever since.   Sorry this is a long post, but we have a lot to report!

We tried to give Mom and Dad heart attacks today! We have had open windows so we could get fresh air.  Angel and I were both in the back window.  Mom is not sure what happened, but she heard a strange noise. 

When she looked to the back window, I, Kirby, was half out the window hanging onto the screen.  I tried to tell Mom that I was trying to put it back on. I do not think she believed me.

Dad went outside to put the screen back on and Mom started to turn away and find Angel and Max.

Max - I was sitting in the living room laughing because you were in big trouble.  I was not involved in this hi-jinks!

Angel - Kirby pushed me out of the window and would not let me jump back in!

Kirby - I did not!  You were leaning on the screen and FELL out when it did!  I was trying to catch you and the screen.

Angel - Whatever!  I saw Dad in the back yard and started yelling at him to put Kirby in time out and help me get back in!

Mom- Angel was making enough noise caterwauling that I did not have to check in the house to find her.   I opened the back door to let her in.  However, Max and Kirby were standing there wanting to go out.

Max -Well, if she was out, we waned to go out too!

Mom - I know, but that isn't happening! I pulled the door closed and somehow it locked!   Dad had to go in and unlock it then keep the boys back!

Angel - I did not need any encouragement!  I started back to the window when Mom got the door open again, I ran in yelling in at the top of my lungs!

Mom - We put the screen back on and came you with a plan to keep this from happening again.

Max - That is good.  We have had enough excitement in the last month to last us all year.  First we had a Raccoon in the attic.  Dad patched up the hole before he was out, so he opened the attic pass through in the garage and was setting on the water heater.   City services does not consider the garage a part of the house so they would not help. 

Mom - We finally got the squirt bottle and sprayed the poor scared critter and he ran out the open garage door.

Kirby - I get to tell off on Max!  We have a kitty flap that lest us go into the garage.  We love to play out there.  So, Max rushed in and brings Mom a gift!  It was a rat and it was still alive.  Dad stepped on it's tail and Mom put on leather gloves and picked it up!

Mom - Yes that was a thoughtful gift from Max.  I picked it up with paper towels and placed it in a zip lock bag.    I thanked Max for the gift, but I wanted to save it for later in the baggie.  Dad put it in a safe place (outside garbage can).

Max - I was very proud of it.  Just call me Rat Man Max.

Angel - Yeah, right, Max the pest is more like it.   I get to tell the third tail.  Mom ans Dad were putting in a garden box and cut the Cable for the internet, house phone and TV!  We were all inside laughing at him.   When the Cable man came out, it was raining buckets so he set in his truck till it let up.   Just before he came into the back yard, Dad spotter the critter that has been living under the shed.  Mom thought was Bunnies!  NOT!  It was a mama Opossum and her five babies, all clinging to her back.  Apparently the rain had run her out.

Mom - So it has been an exciting few weeks and our children are calling our house Dr. Doolittle's menagerie!  Hopefully that is all of the excitement we will have for a while!
