Easy Sunday

I want to tell you about the fun I had yesterday. A moth was in the house. I ruthlessly stalked it over the course of several hours. The lady is always astonished by my murdering-for-sport pursuits. She doesn't understand how I can normally be so sweet and gentle and yet so merciless when it comes to bugs (and one hapless lizard in Texas).  It was the highlight of my week!

The highlight of Pierrot's week was finding another comfortable pillow. Remotes, laptop batteries, speakers all make the best pillows according to Pierrot.

Praying for FL

Hello, friends. Florida is very much on our minds and hearts. We are praying. We really want people and animals to be safe.

I'm watching the big guy do some chores. 

The big guy needed a place for his lens cap and Pierrot was happy to help.

We are laboring hard at hardly laboring.

Happy Labor Day to our friends in the U. S. and Canada. Otherwise, happy Monday!

Flashback Friday and Friendly Fill-Ins

This picture is exactly six years ago. I was five. I had just moved in with the lady and big guy.
Annie, 9/1/11, less than two weeks after she came to live with us

We haven't participated in Friendly Fill-Ins in quite some time. The lady needs time to think and her work has been using up all her thinking capacity. I decided to give her break and took two of these fill-ins, numbers one and four.

1. My favorite fictional character is Garfield. What's not to love? He's orange, stripey, lazy and loves to eat! That's my kind of kitty!

2. A new TV show or film I am looking forward to this fall is _________.  I tried to find a movie coming out that I'd like to see and I couldn't find one I'm interested in. I'll look forward to reading others' answers. I'm sure I'm missing something really good.

3. One of my very favorite books is To Kill a Mockingbird. Only one?  I can change my mind every few minutes on my favorite book, but I remember reading this and realizing how special this book is.

4. The best time to curl up with the lady is in the evening while she's in the recliner reading or watching TV (but sometimes I lie down on the floor instead).

Friendly Fill-Ins is hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.

Thankful Thursday

We are very thankful for our safety and our home. Our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas. There are so many displaced, humans and animals, and much devastation. It's heartbreaking. We are praying for them.

Austin Pets Alive! and Dallas DogRRR-Rescue.Rehab.Reform (along with other organizations) are rescuing, transporting and sheltering animals.  Samaritan's Purse is helping people as they struggle with all the destruction and damage.

Our friends at Lola the Rescued Cat put together a helpful post of different organizations helping animals.

We're joining Brian, host of Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

The Week of 8/21

Well, it's been another busy work week for the lady. Since I didn't post at all last week thanks to her, I thought I'd journal my week here:
  • I beat a fly twice with my paw and then ate it. The lady marvels at how I'm normally so gentle and sweet but ruthless when it comes to bugs.
  • Pierrot and I supervised the gardeners. Pierrot ended up falling asleep, but I didn't. I was vigilant the whole time. You never know when you may need to run for your life.
  • The lady made a big deal out of the eclipse, watching it on TV (we weren't in a good part of the country for viewing). We disappointed her by sleeping through it.
  • I ate grass every day.
  • I had no treats. I'm overdue and would like double portions!
  • I received combings every night and purred and purred.

Yo! Pierrot here. I did stuff too! I watched birds and yelled at the lady to let me in, to let me out, to let me in, to let me out. I heard the big guy tell her that I have her trained.

Where you have old shoes and sunshine, you have happiness.
