My Furbabes - Oh How I Love Them

Due to a wicked sounding thunderstorm this
morning I was awake earlier than normal. Don't get
me wrong, I can sleep through those storms but
poor Dakota was having a fit. I 
got him under the cover and held him
till it past. 

Lily on the other hand noticed the sound of 
thunder but it don't bother her.

Last night while I was in the livingroom I
heard Lily jump off the bed then I head a meow,
sort crying panic meow.
I called to her and told her I was downstairs
and here she comes bouncing down the stairs...
meowing the whole way.
I figure she had a nightmare and woke not
being able to find mom.
I picked her up and was able to love
on her, getting several nose butts along
the way.

This morning after the storms past I 
laid down on the couch and went back 
asleep. This is so off from our normal morn
where I fix coffee and Dakota, Lily and I go 
to the deck. Before I laid back down I opened
the door to let Lily out.

Sleeping I hear this short loud meow
as she comes bopping in the livingroom...
her way of telling me she wants me outside
with her. Now that I have come out and sat
a bit, I am free to go in and do anything without
her calling me out on it but she just knew
our morning did not start like it was
supposed to and she wanted me to change that.

Furbabes....bring me so much love.

Oh Mom, I am Sorry Tired

Yesterday at one point Lily came
in off the deck and 
flopped down like this!

And just laid there!

Love that colorful belly!

Lounge Babes

You all know that me and the furbabes
start our day on the deck...unless its winter!
If not too hot I will just stay out there
if there is nothing else I need to be doing.
But lately the heat has been picking up 
so I come and go. I will go in and do
something then later come and break on the 
deck. I have two fans going!

Lily must have been tired of the heat
yesterday cause I found her parked
between the kitchen door.
Yes, if it is not really hot, I have that open.
When the heat picks up however I have
a piece of wood I wedge there so it
is barely open and she can come and go.

Dakota however was stretched out on 
one of my breaks. Keep in mind, he will not
be out here unless I am. If I am in the kitchen,
he will be there, if I go the bathroom he is the picture?

We are still on the deck this morning.
The wind is really blowing and the temps
are heating up fast. We were due
rain and storms last night but never
got anything. Hoping for rain today so I 
don't have to water!

Here is Dakota an hour ago while
I surfed FB.

Getting his mommy love.

And here is his sister Lily!
She has taken to wanting to veg in the 
metal chairs for some reason. 
I don't question this girls coming and 
goings at all, I have learned that with a cat
they do as they please !! 


But oh my gosh...
how adorable is this?

Not Feeling Well

Dakota tends to get tummy upsets
from time to time I contribute this to 
his not chewing his food. He
opens mouth and inhales!
He always has. It helps if I 
mix pumpkin in his food but for 
reason I have slacked on that.
Yesterday his tummy had the whines, and 
grunts and groans!
He did not eat lunch till late in the 
evening and laid around more so than
usual. He tends to lay around with 
me when I am down but yesterday
it was more about him.

With that I have noticed that Lily
sort of plays off Dakota and 
I. One day last week I was down
and both babes laid around with me.
Yesterday however, like I said, you could
tell Dakota was not laying around
due to me, it was more him and 
I noticed Lily did not have the 
pick up and go she normally has.

Do your animals tend to mimick
your behavior?

Oh the Life

Last week when my youngest
grandson came to visit
I picked up this
velcro catching set.
Braden and I tossed it some but then
he tossed it to Lily who
rolled around on the chair between
her paws for a bit then decided
it was her's and she was not
giving it back.

Yesterday morning these babes
laid together on the deck
before the heat moved in and 
we all went in.

Notice that in the first pic
Dakota is looking at the camera....

But in the last pic Lily is.
Can't get them to play along at the same
time and of course Dakota looks
totally bored.

I got up to go fix my oatmeal 
and came back to Lily
curled up in my chair.

But as soon as I sat on the glider
with my brown sugar and maple
oatmeal she came running.
Lily is not a beggar till it
comes to a banana or
this oatmeal.

Silly critters.

Innocent Faces

Look at those faces!
So sweet, so innocent...
yeah, right!

Dakota don't get into things like he used
to when he was a pup but
Lily on the other hand is a different

You see, if you read my blog today you
know that there has been 
a lot of things spilled on 
my kitchen floor, however with that
being said, it is usually me that 
does the spilling!

Notice almond bag, not sealed
back like it should have been.

This is what can happen with 
Lily around.

Course that just goes to show that
she DOES still get on the 
counter tops when I am not 


Now the funny part of all this is,
when I went in the kitchen to find this,
Lily just looked at me like she was
saying, "what" as I got onto
her. I then told Dakota that she
was his pet and he needed to watch
her better at what point he decided
it was time to shake his head...
in a no manner!

What has your pet gotten into

Gotta love these babes.

What is it About a Cat and Her Box?

Not yet a year ago I brought 
Tiger Lily
AKA Lily Bit
home in this very box.

I tossed it out on the deck to
take to recycle a long time
ago but it seems I never
made it there with it...

Now I think it is a good thing!

 Lily loves a good ole box!

Even smaller ones in 
the  house!

However Dakota 
don't care for boxes.

He thinks it is fun however when
Lily jumps in one and he
tried to get her!

Up Close

 Hi mom! I like being up close and personal  with you. Then I love to curl up and bury my head. Misty
