Mama says that Merlin and I are Best Friends.
I think she is right.

it is a mystery

Mama used to have a dog named Tate.
She says she still misses him.
She says he would have loved me.
Maybe I would have liked him too.
Especially if he likes to nap.

I especially like napping in the sun in the window.
I don't think the dog would fit in the window.

Merlin likes the window.

He likes to take naps too. He is very good at naps.

So am I.

He likes to keep me company at the windows too. Merlin is not a bad friend to have.

He told me some interesting stories. He has had a lot of Adventures !
More than me.
Mama told us we were going on a new Adventure.
I wonder what it will be.
Merlin said he didn't know either.
As mama would say - It is a Mystery.

Watching for Chipmunks

The little girl sits in the window every day and watches for her friends the Chipmunks.
I am not sure if they sit outside and watch for her.
It is a nice little peaceful friendship ... Minette inside, the Chipmunks outside.

Merlin just watches her and takes a nap. He is too old for chipmunks.  He would rather take a nap.

My Sleeping Beauties

Minette likes getting into baskets. I have a deep basket that I keep towels and aprons in, in the pantry.
She has mastered the art of banging the pantry door, making it bounce open a bit, she jumps up to the shelf and into the basket.
I can't tell you how many times I searched the whole house then remembered ... looked in the pantry and there she was in the basket, sound asleep.
My sleepy heads.

Merlin Takes a Nap

Merlin is a champion Nap taker.
He can wake up in the morning, have a little breakfast and go straight to a nice late morning nap with no fuss at all.
Here and there, all over the house, are little spots for Minette and Merlin to nap in.

Minette prefers my bed or the sofa or her little bed out in the Garden room. It is by the glass doors.
So she can keep one eye on the chipmunks while she naps.
Although, I have seen both eyes closed and heard little snoring sounds but she will never admit to it.

Merlin is heavy.
I pick him up and he is heavy. A large heavy warm , not as boney as he was , bundle of love.
(notice the size of that paw)

Minette is a little bigger, a little heavier but she is still a slim long slinky cat girl.
She is beautiful, all sleek and blue with those yellow eyes.

Merlin is just big and hairy. I love it when I can see his eyes ... pale pale blue .
Today I was getting his dinner ready .. he was all eager, looking up at me, I could see his eyes !
and the tiny tip of a pink tongue ... oh lordy, you know I had to pick him up and snuggle him.
He accepted it but squirmed a little when I had sufficient snuggle time.
He was all ... Moooommmmmmm .... quit it ...... feeeeed meeeee.....

It was such a pretty day today, they were in the warm sun  ... had a nice big dinner .. now they are taking their after dinner naps.
We will watch television and they will take their before bed naps.

Then we will have that little game of Who Sleeps Where Tonight ?
Then we will all sleep ... snug as bugs in my bed.

Old Bones

Mama says it is cold out.
I am warm and toasty in the window.
Merlin sleeps on mamas bed.
Something about his Old Bones.

Mama keeps telling us we are going to have a new home.
I was worried.
Why would she give us away ?
I've been good !
Merlin just sleeps !
What did we do ????
Then she told me about the car ride South.
I have No idea what South is but she is taking us for a ride in the car !
I am not sure I will like that.
HE will be riding with me.
You know ...... Merlin.
I wonder what they have in South.
Is there sunshine in the windows ?
I like napping in the sunshine in the window.
Merlin just likes napping.
South .. I have to find out about this.
Maybe it will help Merlin with his Old Bones.
Then he will play with me.

Old Bones

Yeah, he hogs the pillow but Mama says he has Old Bones and needs the pillow more than I do.

Today we are watching for chipmunks.
The other night we saw Deer !!!
Mama got excited. There was a baby deer.

Merlin slept through it.
His Old Bones need more sleep than mine.
I looked. It was too dark to see much.

Then we went to bed.

He isn't so bad ....

So he isn't so bad I guess. He keeps me company when we look out the window.
He lets me eat his food.
He lets me sleep on his bed.
Mama lets us both sleep on her bed.
He is quiet.
Mama says he is the sweetest boy in the world.
I guess she knows what she is talking about.
She said I am the best girl in the world.
I am sure she knows what she is talking about.

That Cat !!

That cat ! He can't stay away from me !! He isn't even looking out the window ! He just wants to be close to me.
Mama says Awwwww .... look how sweet he is.
Ha !
Well... he did let me sleep next to him last night when it was so cold.
And he left me some food in his dish this morning.
I'll think about it.

The Towel

Someone left a towel on the sofa.
Did someone want me to lie on it ?
Did someone want to trick that girl cat ?
She keeps talking about how much hair I have. I bet she did. I bet she told Mama that I am getting hair on the sofa.
Oh well, after my nap I will see about that.

That Cat

I still cannot believe Mom brought him to our house ! She lets him sleep on our bed ! 
Now he isn't speaking to me because I wasn't speaking to him because well, he is here !
Maybe he isn't so had after all. He has interesting stories to tell.

Why Mom ? Why ??

So mom thought it would be nice to have another cat.
She said I would have company.
She said I would have someone to play with.
So she brought home this  
This is not exactly him, there are actually more of them out there . Cats that look like shaggy carpets.
Why Mom ?? WHY ???????

Please ?

Minette finally caught on. She discovered that sneaking up on the counter and stealing things will only get her yelled at and chased out of the room.
But if she sits there staring a hole through me, with that pitiful little face ... Mama will give her anything she wants.
Who knew she would love Avocado ??   diced and just dropped in her dish ? or right out of the skin ? smushed on mamas hand ? out of a bowl ? off the bread ?
You name it, Minette is an Avocado freak.
At least it isn't sardines.

Growing up

Mama says I am growing up.  But she talks to me with baby talk. I wish she would make up her mind.

I love my mama. I get to sleep on her bed, she gave me my own pillow and she only looks a little annoyed when I wake up and play with her feet ..... at 4 am ...... sometimes I bite.

She said we are going to move.
I won't live here anymore.

I am glad she is taking me with her.
I will have my own room.
I don't want my own room.
I want Mama's room. I like her bed best.

Time for a nap.
