Senile Saturday

Hi furriends, Prancer Pie here.  Hmmm, what's this box Daddy brought home?

It looks like it has already been opened. 

Out Of My Way, Prancer Pie!  I will put my paw down in that box and see what's there.

Umph, humph, uggg, I can't feel anything.

OH MY CAT!  How did you get in there, Prancer Pie?

This box must be magical.  Let me check this out.

Nothing to see in here.

Smells ok, too.

*tap*  *tap*

Now this box looks like it has the goods in it!  Wonder what the Mommy is gonna do with all these little bags???   She seemed pretty excited to get them.  

Shortly after this, Mommy put them all in the freezer.  She's so senile.  What good will they be after they're frozen???

Happy Senile Saturday and purrs, y'all.

Pee Ess - Mommy seems pretty excited about her weekend!  MOL!

WEATHER UPDATE:  We are ok.  The storms have passed us by this morning.  We are very thankful we once again.  Many furriends and acquaintances weren't so lucky yesterday.  Flood damage is very heavy in our county, just south of where we live.   Our thoughts and purrayers are with those as they put their lives back together again.

Hi furriends, Prancer Pie here.  Yesterday, Mommy went to the greenhouses near our home to see what they had.  Lots had sold on Mother's Day, but there were many pretty things left to see.  She ultimately bought tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers, but was sorely tempted by those geraniums.  She just loves the way they smell!

Now what you really came here for:  ME!  If I look a little cranky, it's cuz I didn't get to gnaw on those little pepper plants!   I hope efurrybody has a great Friday.  Purrs, y'all.

Pee Ess - we had more severe storms here, but once again we dodged the bullet.

Thoughtful Thursday

Hi furriends, Princeton here.  Mommy caught me looking very thoughtful in the catio the other day.    Betcha I was thinking bout how to get out of there and catch me a fev-ver or mole.  Speaking of thinking, what are your thoughts on this lovely lil pic Mommy snapped of her little man?  MOL!

Prancer Pie cleans while cross-eyed.

Happy Thursday and purrs, y'all!

Tuxie Tuesday

Precious  ( note my pink back toesies)

Hello dear furriends, Precious here.   What can I say?  I made the Mommy come out to the catio for a pic and to dictate my post.  Heh-heh.  The sun is shining, there's a stiff breeze, and lots of different smells.  Mommy is gonna be home today after a busy couple of days.  This Tuxie Tuesday is gonna be great.  This almost puts me in a good mood.  (I better watch it, or I'm gonna become soft!)

Efurrybody have a great Tuxie Tuesday.  Just remember: Make the peeps work for your affections and most impawtantly, TUXIES RULE!!!

Thankful Thursday

Princeton works on a drawer.


Hi furriends, Princeton here on your Thankful Thursday.  I've got lots to be thankful for this week.

  1. Mommy quit hijacking the blog.
  2. We didn't get blown away by storms.
  3. I'm able to manipulate all the cabinets and drawers open in the house.
I just love to get into the Mommy's makeup/hair supplies drawer.  Did you kittehz know that hairbrushes can be great fun to chew on and bunny kick?  The big plus is they smell like your human's hair!  I'll try to remind the feeble-minded quick-witted Mommy to post a pic of yours truly taking down a hairbrush.  MOL!

Well, gotta run, I've got to finish ransacking looking through this drawer before I scamper off to tear up play with something else.  (Mommy!  Why so many cross-outs?!?)

Happy Thankful Thursday and purrs, y'all!

Wordless Wednesday with Storms Update

UPDATE:  8:41 pm CST - Storms are over and all is well.  Watching the destruction at Moore, OK, on the telly.  Thanks again for all those purrs and purrayers for us and our fellow Oklahomans. 
UPDATE - 12:15  P.M. -  Hi furriends, we're still "under the gun"  and have had continual storms since last night.  Our severe weather threat runs til 7 pm tonight.  We do not have any property damage at our house, but several neighbors do.  Our historic downtown was hammered pretty badly last night, but the important thing is that nobody was hurt.  We cannot thank efurrybody enough for those purrs, woofs, and purrayers for us and our fellow Oklahomans.  You guys are the best.  XOXO

Travelin Tuxie Tuesday

Hi furriends, Precious here.  We're posting early cuz we're expectin storms.  We've been safe so far and the destruction that has been in Oklahoma has been far to our west.  Purrayers for those people and furbabies that have been affected.

Mommy had to abandon us for one night last week and we all took turns furring the inside of her suitcase.  (Daddy took good care of us while she was gone.)   Mommy's trip took her downtown Oklahoma City to the capital for her meeting.  She wanted to share the artsy pic the human sis took of the capital:

I hope efurrybody has a great Tuxie Tuesday and just remember:  TUXIES RULE!!!

PEE ESS - 10:02 PM cst - Our town was hit by a small (probably F1)  tornado.  We are ok and it doesn't look like there are any injuries at this time.  Too dark to go out and have a look around the house.  We updated on Facebook and will update tomorrow.  Thanks for those purrayers!

Mancat Monday

Prancer Pie
Hi furriends!  Prancer Pie here on your Mancat Monday.  Mommy said that this pic of me best represents how she feels going into the new week.  She's worn out and it doesn't look good fur us, kittehz.  We hope she can drag herself to the cupboard to open our Fancy Feast.  Good thing Daddy will be around!

We are far away from the storms so far this evening.  We don't think they will reach here.   Our hearts go out to those affected by those nasty tornadoes.

Hope efurrybody has a great Mancat Monday.  Purrs, y'all.

Crazy Caturday

Let the craziness begin. - Prancer Pie

You looking at me?  Laserz ready!

Om, nom, nom. 

Hi furriends!  I guess I've been caught bitin and bunny-kickin this nip nanner.   Mommy loves how I walk by it without so much as a glance, then the next thing she hears is me trying to teach it a lesson. - those nip nanners can be so vicious!  MOL!

I hope efurrybody has a great Caturday.  Purrs, y'all

Fruity Friday

Fresh strawberries

We hope efurrybody has a great Friday.  Purrs, y'all.

Thankful Thursday - Home (part 3)

Family Room
Prancer Pie's private den.  Yes, it's purple.
Hi furriends, Prancer Pie back in charge.  (and it's about time!)   Let me answer some questions.

  1. No, we don't have the run of the whole house.  Just our section and our catio.  That is why Mommy insisted to Daddy that we have one built. (If you ever consider a catio, hire a local laborer, it is so much cheaper than ordering a pre-built!)
  2. The weenie dogs are ok.  They are across the hall from us and we are used to their sounds.  Mommy has always had their smells on her, anyway.  Traitor.
  3. What Mommy means by double toilets is actually two private toilet rooms per bathroom.  Around these parts we call them "potty rooms."  
There were many things that had to be considered for this venture.  How to heat/cool such a large space.  We have three heat/cool units.  We have two hot water tanks, too.  Just like the two refrigerators, we have a double oven and our range has 5 burners on it, too.  The Nana  had a walk-in tub installed for herself.  They bought the display out of a local showroom and got a great deal on the tub!  (Mommy will get a pics)

The thing that really excited all the humans was the fact that they will eventually save money on this venture.  We don't have 3 families paying for basic rates for utilities and such.  We have one bill (albeit a tad larger)  and split it 3 ways.  Hooray for saving money to buy more Fancy Feast!

When Mommy and Daddy first started out on their adventure, Mommy tried "Googling"  multigenerational homes.  Not a lot out there.  Just the other day she Googled it and there is so much more!   Lots of people used to live this way and we are thankful the peeps thought it was a good idea, especially if it gets us more toys and foodables.

Whew!  All this typing has made me tired and I haven't even made my rounds today.  MOL!
I'm gonna catch forty winks.  Happy Thursday and purrs, y'all.

Note the paw sticking out from between the legs.  SQUEEEEEEEE!

Wordy Wednesday - Straw Hat Day - May 15, 2013

Prancer Pie

Happy Straw Hat Day, furriends!   Thankfully, Mom caught on to a conversation on the CWB Facebook page about PicMonkey photo editing.  It was easy!

Mom will be back tomorrow to talk more about our multigenerational home.  Until then, Happy Wednesday and purrs, y'all.

Tuxie Tuesday - Home (part 2)

Our eat-in kitchen
 Hi furriends, the Mommy still has the blog hijacked.  Welcome back to our home.

About 18 months ago, driven by the economy, physical limitations, and emotions, our families
 sold our homes (we lived close to each other on our farm), hired an architect, fired him, re-hired a second architect and went for it.  We just told him we wanted a home with private quarters for each family, but a kitchen and family room to enjoy together.  We also had a safe room added for storm protection.  (a must for this part of the country)  Our safe room doubles as a media room, too.

Side by side, side-by-side refrigerators.  Heh-heh!
We each have a set of suites, but that seems too fancy so we call them "sections"  (like an orange).
Everybody has a bedroom, tiny sitting room, and bathroom.  So the final tally is:  5 bedrooms, 3 full baths with double toilets, one half bathroom,  kitchen, den, two laundry rooms and safe room/media room.   We also have a garage on each end of the house.  Well, that's how it got started, and how we live.  If anybody has any questions, we'll gladly answer them and talk about our decision to do the Big Move the rest of this week.

We hope everybody has a great Tuxie Tuesday, now we'll wrap up with what y'all really came here for:

Move along, can't you see it's Daddy/Diva time?  Mommy you need to remember...TUXIES RULE!!!

Pee Ess -Here's the breakdown of residents here at the PONDEROSA. (that's what we call it)
  1. Me, my husband,  Prancer, Precious, Princeton, and Chi-Chi.
  2. The Nana, the Pawpaw, and their three weenie dogs.
  3. The single sister with college age niece and their menagerie.
