Some alone time

Sometimes a cat needs some alone time. Here is Sebastian trying his best to hide under the red locker we have in the kitchen. However, it's a tall narrow unit, he's a little big to be hiding under it, that's why his legs are sticking out. Hee hee. But don't ever tell Sebastian he's "fat". He gets a little mad.

A Little Helper

I was working on a sewing project last week, and I had a little helper. However, he didn't really want to "help". Unless it was helping himself to the spool of thread. He was waiting for me to get distracted, then.... P O U N C E!

Weekend Activities

This is pretty much how Yaffa and Sebastian spent all weekend. LOL. Snugglefest!! Both of them love the Laz-y Boy Chair. A perfect name for this chair don't you think?

My Toy

Yaffa loves catnip toys. We got new ones from Auntie. Here she is investigating her toy.
She licks the toy to get at the catnip.

She is not letting go of this toy!

Here is Sebastian waiting for her to drop the toy, so he can go after it. He got his own toy, but found hers more interesting.

I love this photo! She's done playing with the catnip toy. Look how content she is! LOL. All nipped up.

Finding Whiskers

This is the 3rd stray whisker that I have found in the house this week. Does anyone know, do cats shed whiskers like they do their fur?

Little Garden Birdie

I posted this on our garden blog, but I thought I'd share it on here too!

Last month, we had this family of birds living in our gutter. We would see the mama bird flying into the garden looking for worms and insects to feed her hungry chicks. Here she is with a mouthful of goodies to feed her young ones. (bigify photo to view larger)
Then one day when I was watering the garden, the momma bird was squawking at me. I looked down at the flower bed and saw a teeny tiny bird. I guess she was trying to scare me away from her baby. Poor little birdie fell from the gutter. This is a bad photo unfortunately. The little guy was under all this brush and I couldn't really get close enough for a good photo. He didn't even have his eyes opened yet. My husband found his siblings on our driveway, but they didn't make it. I told the hubs that I was glad I didn't see that, I'm a wimp when it comes to stuff like that. I would probably just start crying. Luckily this little fella fell on the soft flower bed. It broke his fall. I didn't see the bird for a long time I hope he survived the elements! Its funny, these are probably the same kinds of birds I curse at when I always see them in our garden eating our newly planted seedlings or sowed seeds. However when I see them as mommies and babies, I can't help but feel like I want them to make it! They are really really cute!

Yaffa is so spoiled! She loves wet cat food. The sound of the can opening and she runs to the kitchen and starts meowing like crazy. Here's the thing. She only wants to lick the gravy. She eats like 1 or 2 bites, and licks all the gravy and then walks away not eating the rest. She is so spoiled! She what she left in the bowl!

Word verification

From time to time I like to post the funny words I get from the Blogger word verification. This one made me think, "Are you talking to me?" Argh! LOL.

Hitching a Ride

The other day, I had to go into Manhattan for a client meeting. On my way back, I hopped on the ferry. It was such a nice day, I sat in the back of the Ferry so I could get the breeze and sun. I then noticed something hopping around the back loading deck. Can you see the hitch hiker??
Here's a closeup! This pigeon got on with us in Manhattan and rode the ferry all the way to Staten Island! Hahahahahahahhahaa! I guess he didn't want to fly to the island. Smart lazy city bird.

Sebastian's TV

It was a beautiful 82 degrees yesterday! Finally! The weather has been so hot and humid that it's nice to have a relief in the temperature. It's the first time that I had the windows opened rather than the a/c running. As soon as I opened the window in the dining room, Sebastian started meowing. I guess he heard some of the birds and crickets outside. I pushed the chair next to the window and that's where he sat for about an hour!
