Yesterday was filled with happy cats at play. Today was mop day. We all know what that means in this house! :oops:

Okay. How long is this going to take this time!

Do I hear the mop bucket?

Please tell me you’re not doing that again!

I think she’s coming this way.

What is this human obsession with water?

I don’t know Lady but the soap makes it worse.

At least there isn’t any cat litter in it this time.

Wheel me outta here!

Picking me up for snuggles won’t help.

How come it’s okay for you to wet the floor but it’s not okay when we do it?

Don’t put me down here!

Actually, don’t put me down until everything’s dry.

I may have been in trouble with the older kitties but I think Wanda Heart still remembers rain. Who could resist that face, even if I do have a soggy pillow?

Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

Water is DISGUSTING unless it comes in a fountain or a bowl, amirite, kittehs? But there IS a method to hooman madness -- CLEAN! (And we all know that cats are the kings and queens of clean!)
It's funny about boxes. We all know that ALL cats, from Amur tigers to kodkod cats, LOVE boxes. The three tailed inhabitants of this house are suspected of being "other" because they are absolutely immune to the charms of the box. :dunno:

Banjo said to tell you she tried to email. She was going to tell all but it wouldn’t go through. :bicolorcat: She loves telling secrets
Does Banjo know how to private message? Tell her to give it a try, I'll be waiting for the intel. ;)

I don’t know Lady but the soap makes it worse.
I'll save you Lady! 😻

Maggie likes to play in empty (clean) litterboxes. :)

Night!
Tell HeKitty that's very good hygiene to bathe every day. Cleanliness is next to godliness. 🚿🛀🧼

Furballsmom Furballsmom Me either! Love that face!

rubysmama rubysmama When I saw all the big girls, I was wondering too. She was on the pillow like a little princess.

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 I always laugh at the kitties that like to play in water. You’re kitties don’t like boxes? I guess they prefer a nice soft bed. Can’t blame them there! Lol

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 That’s funny about Hek. Muffin tries to rescue me. She cries at the shower door and opens it. Lol

M maggiedemi Banjo did write you and Lady awaits your rescue.

N NY cat man The kitten watched? It could have been worse. Lol I had an Abyssinian that would get IN the tub for a swim! Risky business! Lol

Did you ever get the feeling you are being watched or followed?
Sleeping?

I’m being watched from below. Lol
FFF76F1B-99AD-4559-9B86-F7F4E0DA5E64.jpeg

I wonder if this has anything to do with the packages I got? Hmmmm. Maybe the next time I cook some of that country ham, I should take a shower immediately afterwards.
I have a cat licking my face! I hope no one sends me smoked chicken!:running::flail:

I know that we don’t associate kitties with ham but one of the things I found was an effective lure when I was trying to catch these kitties was smoked ham sandwich meat. I don’t know why it worked but it did. I guess they still remember! :lol:Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

It goes without saying that I loved all the kitty pics, but I did get distracted by those pictures on the wall. They're beautiful. Did you paint them? Also love the "stone" on the floor. Is it a mat, or painted on the floor?

Interesting that they love ham. Was there enough to share some with them? :catlove:

Maggie likes ham sometimes. She doesn't eat much, but she likes a few bites. She also likes to lick my plate after I make a sandwich.
One other strange thing, I got hot sauce on the pot holder gloves and caught her licking it off! Why would a cat like hot sauce? Chip off the old block I guess. :lol:

M maggiedemi Definitely a chip off the old block! Silly kitty! Hot sauce? Meow! :p

When I tell a cat, "You smell like cat food!" I'm glad, because I want them to eat their food and these days, with all the changes in our house, they have been a little off their food.
I love the pictures and the stone floor, too! I'm wondering about the storybehind both.
Some really nice pix, Jcatbird Jcatbird ! Your cats, of course, are very photogenic.
In cold weather, everyone jockeys for my lap. Tarifa often dives under a warm throw on the bed and becomes a bedlump. But boxes just don't get the kind of attention they would from every other cat in the universe. :dunno:

Heh! Does anyone here have Triple A for roadside service? Last year I called them and then for the next 14 hours kept trying to explain that I was not in the northern part of the state and there was no snow. Today they did get closer. Only two to three towns away. I finally guided the repair guy in myself and flagged him down at the highway. Having a red coat on was a big plus today. I am back home now and the kitties are probably wondering where I have been so long. Low battery on my cell now. Eek! Letting the van run awhile to make sure the charge holds so I took some pictures.

BEAUTIFUL flower pix! You have confused plants, too? Some of mine have been, too, over the last couple of years at least.

We've had AAA for over 30 years, and one day I went to start the vehicle, there was a 'bang!' under the hood, and the vehicle wouldn't start- in a blizzard. The ignition coil had shorted out and exploded, so there was no fixing it without the proper parts. It took them 4 hours to find me, and all I can say is that it's a good thing I kept blankets and those chemical heat packs in the vehicle in winter.

The painting are lovely. And your floor is really cool. :thumbsup:

I've CAA, which is the Canadian equivalent. Luckily I haven't had to use them much, but it's great knowing they're only a phone call away if I need them. Once my car died on the way to get serviced. Battery and alternator both. Couldn't even get my hazard lights to come on. (I'd been getting warning lights for a while) I just managed to pull over to the side of the road, but it was winter and freezing. Plus it was rush hour! Luckily CAA got there quickly, and towed me the couple more blocks.

Letting the van run awhile to make sure the charge holds so I took some pictures.
Beautiful pics. So pretty. And green. Right now things around here look dead, or white. ⛄
