Wolverines Are Scary Critters, But We Want Them To Win...Go Blue!

Exciting Things in the Basketball World, Today...We are rooting for The Wolverines!
Hey Pipo! Its almost time for the Wolverines to play their Basketball Game!

Well, well! Finally we get a chance to mew here again. Later today those scary creatures known as the Wolverines will be trying to put their big bouncy ball into the net enough times to WIN! At least we hope so, MOL!

Today we are at 48F, a heat wave by earlier standards, MOL! And its sunny, hooray! We love our sun puddles. A lot of our snow has melted and though a lot is still piled up, at least we can see grass again. There sure are a lot of broken off limbs and large branches to clean up, meowmy says she thinks she is a part time lumberjack!
The red squirrels have taken over the backyard woodsy area, OMC! Walnut shells evfurrywhere. Dog-guy couldn't get through all our deep snow to rout them out of there.
Bunnies, too have chewed off the bark from saplings, so more work fur meowmy to cut them all down, they will die anyways, they must have been so furry hungry this severe winter. Usually dog-guy keeps them scared off, but again he couldn't get back least the deer can't get over our fence, at least they haven't tried.

Well, we need to get ready to cheer our team on...

Minko: Paws Crossed For A Win!

Pipo Mews: Go Blue!

Minko got so excited he's all tangled up in Go Blue gear...OMC!
This is a better way to cheer on my team:
Mew at ya'll later!
MIAOW and Go Blue!

Panic Mode & Barkless

Soon by the calendar it is supposed to be Spring! Hooray!
Well, while some melting of snow has happened, there is still loads of it! Only now the piles and mountains are no longer pristine, but yucky looking, esp where the dog-guy spends his pennies, MOL!
A week ago we had a major dump of over nine inches of heavy wet snow. Things had just started to look better out there, and it was even warmish…that is to say it was above freezing. And then winter returned to pester us again. UGH.
Here are some pictures to inform you of our snowiness:
This is looking  towards the road from our back steps, taken on March 8th.
Pawppy had just finished clearing the path to make the sidewalk neat. That fence is 5 feet high, and you can see that the snow mountains are taller than the fence.
Some other pictures from the same day:
Our den and cars...try pulling out of the driveway when you can't see over the mountains.
Our resident garden squirrels, finally out from under the snow...and they are holding down some large flowerpots, the snow was oh so furry deep...
And then we had another dump of that heavy wet snow on March 12th.
The sidewalks have disappeared...
And so have those squirrels.
That same day we had a dog-guy holiday…he went to that *vet* pawlace…and was there for hours. When he came back, he smelled funny and didn’t even try to say anything to us, and no barking at evfurrything he heard. That was really odd, because he sure can be a master barker pup.
Pipo as close as he has evfur gotten to Dog-guy without a hiss or a smacky paw, MOL!
Minko was rather worried about that strange smell, so he didn't dare get up close...
Well in a day or two he was more like the dog guy we know, but then this Larry-N-Gitus dude paid meowmy a visit, along with some frogs and squeaky mousies.
By now, meowmy has managed to evict L-N-G because she nevfur invited him, but she is barking. like dog guy…good grief the world is upside down.

We sure keep meowmy busy ourselves though…we puke fur her benefit now and then, we scatter the litter about, so that we will get cleaner floors, MOL!  We make her compose purrty pictures fur furs, though sometimes she has to do that fur dog-guy as well…and we sit purrty or do silly things like snag a piece of yarn, and pull it, knock the things off of the counter in the bathroom, or chase my tail(Pipo). Of course sunbathing is always a high priority, even more so this winter with so much coldness. We had to hide a time or two when the dudes came to do maintenance on our furnace…but we let him, because we like its warmth so much.

The other day we watched her mouse go berserk… it jumped all over the screen and made the pages turn when meowmy wasn’t even done reading them…Yikes, she was getting into a panic mode. She was purrturbed with Minko because he likes to sit between meowmy and the edge of the laptop, and bonks his head on it too…so she was going to try to blame him fur her woes... Even unfur-the-techie-bro was stumped. Pawppy thought the confuser was kaput:( and that it would need to go to the confuser hospital …but, wonder of wonders! Pawppy turned the confuser on its side to write down the serial number, and when he placed it back on the desk…OMC! It was fine! Pawppy said maybe there was a real bug in there and the movement dislodged it back out from under the trackpad/mouse. Maybe that’s why Minko was so interested in the confuser.

Anyways no worries, kitty pals, meowmy can still help us mew & purr with you all.

Meowmy really looked funny on St Patrick’s Day…she wore her regular uniform, but put on a little green hat on top of her head, and a light up shamrock pin on her shirt.
When she came home she was still giggling, because she had made her residents giggle and smile…it was worth her being silly she said. I guess it was OK fur her to leave us, if she was making others feel good…but we didn’t do anything green here, MOL!
And now we want to show you that tree you see beside pawppy, shoveling the sidewalk, how it should look really soon, now that Spring is close at hand.
It is a Weeping Cherry tree, but let us tell you we will not be weeping at all when our yard looks like that! MOL!

Pesto & Pee-po

Minko has some miaows: My Thwarted Efforts

I don’t think meowmy appawsiates my purrs and paws furry much…at least not lately…

She had to move her confuser to a different pawlace, cause the chair she wanted to use didn’t fit under her desk. She needed the other chair because her back was bothering her and pawppy’s chair helps…anypaws, now her confuser is on the table. So…I jump up there and then its easy to get between the confuser and meowmy…so she can hardly see the screen or the keyboard, MOL! So she says.
She just doesn’t appawsiate me…see, I start to purr and knead and wiggle a bit, and I don’t like it when meowmy moves her hands and arms to do all that tapping and typing. And why does she get to play with a mouse but not me?
Well after a bit of time goes by, meowmy picks me up, bribes me with a kiss and puts me on the floor…sigh…I told you so!

Well, so then I decided to get to the back side of the confuser. Hey its cozy back there. And…she keeps her confuser on a thick rattan mat. Um…the other name for a rattan mat would be scratching pad, MOL!
She didn’t think so though…and you guessed it, on to the floor I went…after I thought she had forgotten about that, I went to the back of the confuser again…and did not scratch. But…I saw this wee gadget protruding from the back of the keyboard, not the USB cord mind you, this thing was loose and made of metal, so I decided to jiggle it and rattle it, to see if I could dislodge it, to begin a 'bat it around the floor game’. Wow, a neato 'not a cat toy' toy! MOL!
But Meowmy didn’t think so either…she said hey! And I got put to the floor again. She said she needs that toggle to her lock down (It is a computer lock, not unlike a bicycle lock…)…sheesh! So now all I have to do is figure out how to get rid of that thing so that when meowmy goes to her work, maybe I can get to use the confuser myself…yes, that is my goal! MOL!
Until Pipo reminded me that my paws may not be able to manipurrlate the keys furry well…sigh...

I wanted to use the confuser myself to say hooray and thank-mew to Catster fur still being here fur us to purr and pawlay in!

And thanks to the kitties and pups who taught our furmily how to do blogging!
Happy Kitty I am...despite all the thwarted efforts, MOL!

And Pipo has a confursion to make: Peed And Busted

My name should be Pee-po according to meowmy...

Meowmy was straightening up a cupboard nearby the litterbox.
So I sat on top of the box and watched fur a while…but then I had an urge…well, you know, a call from nature to do my duty.

Meowmy realized that I was in the litterbox, and didn’t think much of it…until she heard a strange sound…like a hard stream of liquid in the wrong spot…huh? OMC! She bent over the box, and sure enough…my paws were in there, my back ones were not and my tail was UP. And fur sure I was making a pee and none of it was going in the designated litter. All of it was on the litter mat and the towel under that mat…(Meowmy thought at least she was prepared.) I do have to give her credit…she didn’t spook me or anything like that, she just let me finish, and then she cleaned it up…thank mew, meowmy!
But now she says she knows who is the culprit, because she once in a while has found pee-pee in the wrong place, outside the box, that is why the towel and other protections were already there. Shoot, now I can’t blame ‘not-me’ or Minko…and well dog guy can’t fit into that space…sheesh, I can’t even blame him. But I smacky pawed him a lot today nonetheless...

Busted! And renamed…from Pipo to Pee-po…sigh…

And thank-mew to the HQ of the ‘new’ Catster.
I am so glad that I can mew and MIAOW whenever I need to!
I hope to be doing that fur a long long time!
And here in Bloggieland too!

Here is a funny thought...March is supposed to be green for St Patrick's Day, but...I do have a lot of green on my Catster page, Christmas trees, and they are all decorated too, MOL! Oh least I HAVE a page and can mew with you all! Hmmm...This bloggie page is not green at all, MOL!

Maybe it will be good to keep things in a neutral mode fur now...
