Breaking News!! "I Rule" - Leia

I, Leia, may be a tiny Princess but I will bite you in three pieces and 
run off with the biggest part to eat. 


Mom didn't know until today, but I knew - there was a lizardy thing in here.
I've been carefully, patiently, monitoring the situation the last couple of nights.

Today, Mom saw the wriggler in the kitchen and well... she's not like me, she has no hunting ability, only the very polished ability to freak out over stuff. But her useless efforts did alert me it was time to head back into the kitchen and deal with this once and for all.

And I did. It took about two hours of patiently sitting in the kitchen, 
mostly by the fridge where Mom saw it scurry under, until it emerged and ...

P O U N C E!! Splat! Kow Pow! EPIC battles!

Tail in TWO pieces, not one, but was I distracted by those wiggly bits?

NOOOOOO... I knew to go right for the big piece, where all the good stuff is.

And then I grabbed it and ran off to the bedroom to show Toby, and possibly to share with him.
Unfortunately Mom saw me scamper by with my prize. 
I dropped it, she grabbed a throw to toss over it and scoop it up, 
where it was deposited outside.


 (this is my disappointed face)

Drat. I am getting very high praise though, so that's something.

And Toby? Well....


He made an appearance after the fact to see what the fuss was all about. 
And just between us, he's got about as much hunting ability as Mom does!


I rule. - Leia

Mom:
as far as I know, the lizard is still alive. The tails are made to come off, and I didn't kill him, just tossed him out the back door. Please, never come back.

Mom's Orange Helper


I have *always* been a great help to Mom. 

All the things I do around here! I make sure she gets up to feed us... 
and give her early morning pre-work snorgle times... 
supervise everything that goes on... the list is endless.

Here I am helping her put together her poster board of Grand Admiral Thrawn (Star Wars) drawings. 
It's impawtant work, she couldn't do it without my feline assistance.


Mom, I really don't feel this is the best placement for this particular drawing. 
It should go over THERE.

Happy Caturday to all!

A GASP! On Caturday

::Toby: I am NOT talking about this. No way, no how. So I'm sending in
Cornelius Croc to speak for me::


Uh... hi!! 

It's been awhile since I've hosted the bloggie of my BFF Toby and her Most Royal Supreme Highness, Leia. Today, Toby is V E R Y upset and just can't bring himself to -

:Toby: she THREW it at me! at MY HEAD!!::

Umm.... ok.. continuing on...
I can confirm that there was a very unfortunate incident here at Bloggie HQ.

::the Lady - tell everyone it was an ACCIDENT!!!::

Yes, ma'am! It was an accident, absolutely, not intended at all - 

::Toby: I don't care! I'm TRAUMATIZED::

.. Maybe we should just have the Dramatic Re-enactment now. Cue picture evidence:

And now the Official Statement:
Approximately 1:15 pm today, the Lady, upon completion of a lot of very hot and messy yardwork, opened the front door and tossed in her headphones and iPod prior to coming in herself.
Without looking.

This, sadly, landed square upon Toby, who was about where G C is now.
This did not go well.

::Toby: my head! MY HEAD! Or maybe some other body part, 
I can't remember but it landed on me!!::

::the Lady: I didn't MEAN TO!::


Cornelius the Croc:
You know, this SpokesCroc stuff is really hard some days.

It's Wednesday


Yeah, yeah, Orange Boy, I know all about your "exhaustion" attack. ::rolls eyes::

Moving on... This is an ottoman/storage bench we've had for a few years but 
recently Mom cleared it off and made me a comfy little bed, so now I love it!

PS: Brody, do you want to teleport over and nap with me? I'll move over a bit.

Nearly Wordless Wednesday

Mom, I would NEVER try to keep Leia from getting into her little house.

The very idea !

I merely collapsed here from sheer exhaustion. She can leap over me.

Easy Sunday


Today I got my nails trimmed, against my express wishes. Mom tried to tell me that
ALL the best people get their nails done by someone else,
but I can't help feeling darkly suspicious of this statement.

- Leia


Mom is always on the look out for the next embarrassing picture.
As per this one. And then she threatens the Snorgle Tummy Monster Fingers.


And since we have had enough attention from mom for one day,
we're graciously allowing her to post this picture from the Petsmart
parking lot this morning. She said there were actually 
6  woofies in that truck.


She wasn't the only one to snap a picture of this!

Finally Friday



We made it!! Best wishes - or fishes - or both - for a fine weekend for us all.

A few random things:

1. We never told mom what was so fascinating in our Wednesday picture. We like to stay mysterious. It's a Cat Thing.

2. Speaking of mysterious... Mom cannot understand why, when we have two plates of food, exactly the same, we insist on eating out of the same dish at the same time. Remarkably, no smacky paws or rude remarks of any kind, just down to business.

3. Or, when we have three litterboxes, two of them side by side, we almost always both use the same box. She'll come home and there are multiple outputs. In the same box. With the other two in pristine shape.


And finally, I leave you with this passing thought:


It's not always a good idea to insist on waking mom up in the wee hours.
Repeatedly. Some of the things she says.... !!!

- Toby

- - but not Leia, because she's a girl and girls are smarter than that!
