I'm Only A Cat

From For Ellipsis

I'm Only A Cat

Author Unknown

I'm only a cat and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair, or your bed or your face!

I'm only a cat, and I don't finick much...
I'm happy with cream and anchovies and such!

I'm only a cat, and we'll get along fine...
As long as you know I'm not yours... you're all mine!

Bad Kitty Dylan

It was quite a week with my two little men! The weather has been just beautiful, so we have been discovering all kinds of things in the yard. Butterflies, and bees and hummingbirds... it's all so wonderful. To my surprise, Hendrix isn't terribly fond of hunting. He instead, enjoys sitting on the swing with me, but now when it comes to Dylan, it's a different story.

Dylan gave his mommy a huge fright on Saturday, when he decided to take a nap in one of the trees. I looked for him everywhere. Hendrix walked around the yard with me... mewing for his brother... but there wasn't a sign of him anywhere. Not even the sound of his bells.

I was sure I had lost one of my babies. 4 hours went by and still now little orange kitten. I was a mess. I had even called Alan at work, to see if he knew of any areas of the yard that might allow him a way out, but he was sure it was safe. Then, just about 5 minutes before a worried Alan was to get off work, I saw Dylan climb down from the lower branches of the plum tree and come running toward the backdoor. He had to have been up there the whole time, because I had looked in that area thoroughly, I just hadn't bothered to look up! LOL. Bad kitty! I was too happy to see him, to be too mad...but still...BAD KITTY!

:) By the way, if my blog looks a little strange over the next few days it's because I am working on a template for spring. Feel free to comment on what you see. Feedback is always welcome!

Hi Carly! So glad you found your baby. They are so big already! I'll finally be posting some photos of all my new babies this week :-)

I can imagine how relieved you were to find your Dylan! They can be such funny little rascals, in the places they find to hide and sleep.

I like your new look! Very pretty!

Thank you for posting kitty pictures! Your cat adventures always seem to double when you double up on cats. LOL.

The boys sure are getting big and they're just adorable. They seem very happy and it's good they have different personalities.

I was at a petting farm this week and the two little ladies I took had fun with two goats that were siblings, one was white, one was black and they were constantly butting heads over who was going to get the snacks. The dark guy won most of the time but we managed to make sure the light fella got just as much to munch.

Animals are very interesting.

Even human ones. tee hee. I think it's interesting that the word verification is equis. I used to work on a magazine with that name. Worked on a horse newsletter once too.
