When you have exPURRt suPURRvision, it's going to be PURRfect! (Okay, so enough with the "purrs" in the words, right?) So exciting getting everything ready for the (non)guest of honor's return to her furmily. I'm thinking it will be a real lovefest. The return of the Prodigal Daughter :hearthrob::runningcat: :hearthrob:
I was trained as an artist and a writer, but haven't done anything art-wise for a long time. Writing is pretty much pared down to online in advocacy. Don't we wish we had more time, all?

I've only seen 1 squirrel all day and that was over an hour ago still not heard any. The neighborhood is usually filled with them. Song birds very quiet. We have rain forecasted but per radar the major mess going north of us maybe critters know something the weatherfolks don't. I'm jumping in the shower and then battening down the hatches, making sure electronics charged and flashlights working.

Jcatbird Jcatbird it has been my experience that cats make cleaning more fun, even if they can be a bit bossy. 😉 :lol: I hope Thrasher is doing great.

And yes, M Merieme , the clowder is the cutest! Welcome to TCS.

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 stay safe hon! ❤ Great toys! I’m sure many cats on here would love to chase one! And I love the product description :flail:

Fellow possum lovers/admirers and Sprint subscribers here thanking you for sharing those cuties, dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 -- we had a green four-wheeled mouse once. It was pretty cute but nowhere near as cute as those guys! We do have some pull-string cuties and stationery cuties that are possums, woodchucks or groundhogs, mice, a shark!, a squirrel, and a purple mouse.

Lari Lari Well thank you! I’m glad you saw the paintings. The cats tell me that they tried to keep you looking at them though. They really want the focus. Lololol I guess my love for Sarah shows through. She was a very special girl. She taught her mom a lot and I always smile when I think of her. She had the most contagious grins. Of course, as her mom, I would think that. :cloud9:

strider rose strider rose Whistle says to tell you he has always wanted to visit Egypt! He would like to be in a story! He’s excited.

tabbytom tabbytom I stand corrected. You are right! It must be Calico Furwers with Lady. All floof!:lol:

rubysmama rubysmama Those cat faces made me laugh. I don’t know which one was funnier. It’s hard to work when you are cracking up though. It definitely made the work more fun.
I will find some of those drawings!
The reunion is put off for a day or two. There was a lot of noise around today and I think it’s better for Thrasher and all to do that on a better day. The noise came from the side where the cat room is located so... not yet. Thrasher is really enjoying the one on one time so she’ll be okay with that. I may go ahead and let BJ in the room with us tonight though. We’ll see how that goes.

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 The reunion is delayed but maybe a more gradual reintroduction is better anyway. I may add some things to the cat room too. Thrasher is fine but I think the area behind the property is a bit noisy right now so I want all the kitties in the main part of the house.

I wish I could have had some artistic training. However, as you, my time goes more to kitties now. I do try to wiggle in some other stuff but the cats have to help me. Thank goodness for the kitties! I couldn’t write the thread without them! They are the artistic ones in Chez catbird. Lol

Pull string toys! I can just see it now, running through the house pulling a pull string toy with a Clowder right behind me.:flail:It better be a very strong string because I can’t run fast than the cats.

C Cat Grrl Tails from the wild side! :clap2: :lol: So true! I like it! That got purrs all around!

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 I have moved containers of plants around too. When I was very young I made friends with an older lady who took me plant hunting with her. She gave me plants that I kept for many years. I still have seeds that have come from generations of those plants. I have had some come and go too but the seeds helped. Lol The ones from that lady are precious to me. I won’t say how long ago that was!:lol: Oh my goodness! That possum is hilarious! The description too! Eating ticks off a deer? They do that? Lol I think the cats here would think I let Mr. Possum inside! I’m really curious what Mr. Possum would think about it! Company!
I loved the sounds of the rain and frogs. Sounds familiar! The animals always know when something is coming. I imagine the little squirrels were safe in their nests getting ready for the rain. I always watch the creatures around here. They may not speak hooman but they tell me a lot. I hope it has all passed there without any problems. Stay safe!

BellaGooch BellaGooch Oh yes! The cats make the work fly by. They keep me laughing. I may have actually taken a bit longer to finish but who can clean when they are rolling on the floor laughing? Kodiak was very helpful in pointing out what I needed to do. The expressions! Obviously their hooman needs close supervision.

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose I add mine to that too. For you as well!:redheartpump::grouphug:

It’s been a hectic night here. The best laid plans? Lol I was talking to a friend and they pointed out the pleasure of a nice long hot bath to relax. Sounds good to me!

What do you kitties think?

Whistle! Come to your sister. Want a kiss?

Okay Banjo.

Love you my sister!

You really need a nice warm bath to relax Whistle.
20A85A2C-A57E-44C4-9EB1-7F9838A3F042.jpeg

No, I don’t!
2FE97E01-275C-468D-B883-C9C6D2310F9B.jpeg

You need a bath Whistle!
891A2ED4-7992-4D74-A28A-D73BEF2F7DF9.jpeg

Just lay back and try it!
A25F5CD0-5A1D-4F3B-A042-E9B6A759DA91.jpeg

Banjo, no. (Note on the left that Mackie is starting to watch)
795783ED-3E07-4103-A3D8-00209776B16E.jpeg

Stop Banjo! You’re getting me all wet!
7BEC27D6-4793-4C2B-A558-93F7DFA7017F.jpeg

Be still Whistle!
9076C813-9C05-4467-AED3-592314DDB974.jpeg

I don’t want you licking my face Banjo!
3F122AB2-0169-4AB6-A9DA-1558B85B6E28.jpeg

You will let me bathe you Whistle! I heard it is very relaxing!
925FF2B3-C679-42CC-9E37-A19A6C400437.jpeg

But Banjo....
D4516D66-983E-4C8F-9871-8916870EB432.jpeg

I need air!
9C88903F-F111-4A5F-B929-3AE214020C43.jpeg

Just a little more Whistle.
369769ED-D17B-4C52-ABD7-81A0413D3E80.jpeg

Well if you’re going to drown me....
23FFE63B-B759-4585-A577-C27A9744F7B8.jpeg

I’m going to start swimming!
FD033AC3-3A74-49F0-B3D0-0D05546888D7.jpeg

Hooman, just so you know, that warm bathe thing... it is not relaxing!
84D588D6-09B2-4654-8415-779F59BB3A7D.jpeg

Shhhh! Don’t tell Banjo where I’m hiding. If she asks, I am already relaxed.
B0D3D687-09B7-40B4-984F-EF6DC67452A7.jpeg

Well, I tried that warm bath thing.
48CB15BD-BC4B-4C2D-B723-E3CE241328D9.jpeg

It did not relax us.
8441D8B4-75F9-461B-8F04-82231462987B.jpeg

I saw it all but somehow I think it lost something in translation from hooman to cat. I’ll be happy to lick your face if you need it though.

Ahhhh, thank you Mackie but.....could I just have purrs?

:lol:
You're so wise, Jcatbird Jcatbird to delay the happy reunion while it's so noisy. Cats don't like noise and I empathize! Calm, serenity, and nature sounds, like the beautiful sound of the rain and froggies, are PURR-FURRED, right? :winkcat: And on the subject of the wet stuff, save it for the furless! We want ours in bowls. And that's enough for us!

Lari Lari Thank you. I am absolutely sure you are already a wonderful mom. No doubt.
The bath for Ehistle kind of reminded me of when my nephew was young. Lol He hated bath time. It was always ,” No Aunt Catbird. I don’t need a bath!” Then he discovered that I had put bath toys in the tub. After that I couldn’t get him out! “No Aunt Catbird! I’m not through yet!” He was two. So cute.

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Mackie is looking over my shoulder now. He’ll be laughing in my ear in a minute. A joke for the laughing cat! Lol Thank you. It will make his day! I’ll be hearing cat chuckles all day.

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Yes. I want everything very calm when Thrasher joins the others. She has had too much stress lately
That bath was not appreciated. Banjo has been bathing Whistle all their lives. She took on a caregiver role when he was sick and she just never stopped. Whistle just can’t convince her that he can do it himself now. Big boy! Lol

I don’t know if I will be on later. I have a full day and had a long night last night. I’ll get back if I can get everything done early.

I got an emoji text from Mamany. I think today is a better day for her. Keeping the candle lit.

:grouphug:


Hey everyone! Hooman mom is putting the phone down? I wonder if I can type with my back paw?!

Silly cats!!! I recently bathed kittens (fleas) and it is not a fun experience, especially on their end! (It’s not fun on my end to see how miserable they are.)
Banjo, it was a nice gesture, but I’m not sure if it went the way you thought it would. :lol: Poor Whistle.
Wow Banjo, it takes talent to type with your back paw!
Glad you heard from Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 . And I completely ageee with Lari Lari , your love for Sarah is so prominent and beautiful. ❤
And kudos to you, like tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 said, for waiting to not stress dear Thrasher out. 💕
