Thankful Thursday with Yang and Chimera

We are thankful to have each other to play with.

Yang is a good big brother.

He lets me pounce on him.

Mommy messed up the photos again so I asked her to turn them to art.

I like this one of me and Yang together.

We are waiting for a victim to come by so we can whop them. It's a fun game and it keeps the humans in shape.  ~Chimera, with her sidekick Yang reporting for ATCAD

Winsome Wednesday

I am a very good cat, I stay in the backyard where I am safe. Therefore I get more outside privileges then the escape artist in the family.

And the big PLUS is that when Mom is outside she is usually on the porch with me and the dogs.

I also prefer my doggies siblings to my cat siblings.

Don't judge the DOGS ALWAYS MIND ME. My cat siblings not so much.

So really who would you prefer obedient  subjects or disobedient ruffians who are constantly trying to stage a coup. And OK I did try to overthrow Scylla as Queen and we do dual over the position at times but really I am a much better ruler than SHE is, and the other two would be a complete disaster in charge.

I also enjoy reading with the Mom.

And the swing usually has decent sun puddles in the morning.

Tuiren Tuesday

 Will wonders never cease, here I am on Tuiren Tuesday just like I am suppose to be.

 Hi everyone, it sure is good to see you.

 Fenris' food bowl is empty which is very sad. I always check when I come over here.

 Mommy says she should have named me Hoover not sure why? I like the name Annie Tuiren much better.

 Hurricane Barry is sticking around making it wet and dreary outside just now so we are hanging out inside.

 I'll be glad when it's gone. I enjoy outside time on the porch.

Mischief Monday with Chimera

It's a PET Couch Mom, not a Dog Bed, Dog Bed sounds so exclusive. ~Chimera, reporting for ATCAD





Sunday Selfie Starring Chimera

 I am going to grab a quick selfie before I start my day. Can you believe that Mom got rid of my hidey hole when they remodeled the Study. All the homeschool books had to find new homes.

 Mom did an arty picture of me in my hidey hole, I think it turned out OK.

 Mom did a good job remodeling the Family Room she even got us two PET COUCHES to lounge on.

 Not sure why Daddy thinks getting on the treadmill helps him stay in shape. But it is a nice place to snooze, although I could do without his shoes for company.

 The nice patch of sunshine is most welcome.

 And it makes a great backdrop to showcase my furs.

Caturday Art

We thought we would start by sharing some 2019 Calendar pages.

This is the one Mom has for July and it fits our weather perfectly. It's so hot and humid here all we want to do is lay around. This is what the Farmer's Almanac says about Dog Days in case you have never heard the expression.

The Dog Days of Summer describes the most oppressive period of summer, between July 3rd and August 11th each year.

Why Are They Called the “Dog Days” of Summer?

The phrase is actually a reference to the fact that, during this time, the Sun occupies the same region of the sky as Sirius, the brightest star visible from any part of Earth and part of the constellation Canis Major, the Greater Dog. This is why Sirius is sometimes called the Dog Star.

More Calendar pages.


Yang's page is for August, which is when he and Yin were born as best Mom can figure from their Gotcha Day of September 5th.

A page Mom colored.

Mom won the Letter R challenge.

Mom didn't place in the List Challenge. Mom finds the list challenges hard as you are given a list of things to use (so Mom has to go look for them if she doesn't have them in her stash, this time she had to find a bucket) and how many you can use.

And Mom's Year of the Snake got third place. We think the woman is loco to be that close to a snake but she did look perfect for the page. ~ATCAD





Flowers on Friday

 Mom took these pictures on February 8th.  The Red Hibiscus has beautiful flowers, they don't show up very well though as they blend into the leaves. But the red leaves are colorful all year long so...


 The Daffodils bloomed early this year.

We love Daffodils they are so cheerful and they are one of the first SPRING plants to bloom. ~ATCAD
