CAT STUMP

Recently Mom moved my 'cat stump', (it is too short to meet requirements for a cat tree,) from the side
window in their bedroom to the front window.
This was a good move..the other window was boring. I was
delighted to check out the new location

  once it had the Madi sniff of approval I decided 
to see what I could see from atop the 'cat stump'
 first I had to be sure what I was smelling was essence of Madi
There is a great view of the cul-de-sac over left shoulder
 from the right
 and it appears the 'cat stump' is in a good location
for napping....or maybe I'll hop over to the chair
that looks comfy too!!
GOOD MOVE MOM...AS YOU MIGHT REMEMBER
MOM CALLS CHANGES LIKE THIS FOR
MADI ENRICHMENT.

SKILLS....and Grandma Update

I HAVE'EM, MOM DOESN'T!!
Recently I decided to check out my cat tree after ignoring it for several weeks.  Mom could tell I was about to jump so she 
had hopes of getting a mid air photo...but she lacks in hand
eye coordination!! 


My catnip pillow was my target but it fell right after I landed

I WILL JUMP TO THE TABLE FIRST
I CAN STOP ON THE DIME!! 


 Then to the floor..oooops HELLO KITTY REFLECTION
 NOW BACK UP AGAIN

I love jumping...and I love teasing Mom when she is 
trying to snap at just the right moment.

FINALE!!! (ALMOST)
MOM JUST MISSED ME FLYING THROUGH THE AIR WITH THE GREATEST OF EASE.
FYI:  THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT MY FELINE FLYING SKILLS
'CAUSE I GOT ME SOME SKILLS FOR AN 11 YEAR OLD!!!
 Mom's skills need serious work!! 

UPDATE ************
We thank you all for you inquiries about my G-ma
She has been diagnosed with, Lewy Body Dementia.
 Unfortunately, hallucinations go along with this
type of dementia. We hope the new medicines she started will help with these so that she can have some peace of mind.
She awakes at night thinking there are animals in bed with her.  We know this must be very scary for her.

Eric and colors

Mom and I are so very sad to learn our dear sweet
Eric went to the bridge yesterday.  

Eric and his bro Flynn were are good buddies from the very start of our blogging days.
Eric was quite an adventurer, mouser,
hay stack climber and a love of
walks about the field checking on the horses
We send lots of love and hugs to Eric's peeps
and brother Flynn
Run free Eric, chase butterflies and may you have sunpuddles every day.
Love Madi and Mom

YOU SEE SOMETIMES

I LOOK BLACK AND WHITE



BUT AS YOU CAN SEE I AM
REALLY GRAY AND WHITE

MOM SAYS I CHANGE COLORS WITH MY MOOD!!!

Meet My Cabinet: Ruby

We are thrilled to be featuring 
RUBY the Airedale aka
Squirrel Control Officer

OMDs RUBY IS LOOKING SUPER too cool for school in her FASHIONABLE 
SQUIRREL CONTROL HAT AND SHADES.   





1.Please introduce yourself and tell us your age and very special trait
Furst, I would like the thank the honorable Mayor Diva Madi. It is a honor and privilege to serve at the pleasure of the Mayor, and I hope to do you proud.
Anyhu, my name is Ruby. I am a 4 year old Airedale Terrorist ~ um, Terrier, and I do have a very special trait....deadin' evil tree rats (aka: squirrels)!  Oh, puppers and kittehs, this is my favorite past time! I can sniff out a tree rat from 50 yards away, and I will not stop chasin' til it is gone, one way or another! BOL
2. If you had an altr ego who would you like to be?
If I had an alter ego, I guess it would be the Terminator.  Now, I love Arnie's Terminator as much as the next guy, butts I relate more to the Robert Patrick Terminator cause he was FAST!  And, deadin' those tree rats takes lots of speed!
3.  What do you like best/least about where you live?
I loves livin' here in sunny California ~ you really can't beat the weather. I think that is the best thing. Butts I also miss the snow! See, I was born in the great state of Wisconsin, and I remember the lovely white stuffs, and I have dreams of doin' zoomies in it all the time!
4.  Who are some peeps/furiends you would like to meet and why?
Oh, there are so many furends I would love to meet in the furs! It would be too hard to choose! (thou, Puddles and I would have a BALL togethers!! BOL)
5. If you could give one piece of advice what would it be?
Don't pee on your balls.

6. What do you do for fun?
Now, any furend that knows me, knows I LOVES bubbles!!  Oh, furends, it is my favorite pastime. I make Ma turn on my bubble machine at least twice a day, sometimes more! I also love balls. Any kinds. (okay Floyd, gets your mind out of the gutter, dude!)
7.  What is the first thing you do each morning?
I shake and stretch and pee.
8.  What is the first thing you notice about a new friend?
I notice a furends scent. Are they flowery, spicy, musky, or do they smell like bullies?!  I likes the last ones the best! hehehe
9.  Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name?
Oh, Ma couldn't find any Airedales in California. She tried to find rescues, litters, etc. ~ nothin' on the west coast at all. So she found a great Breeder in Wisconsin. Ma was so impressed with the Breeder, that she put in her request for a  pups before I was even born! I had 11 brothers and sisters, and I was the only one to gets a plane ride all the way to Cali!
Now, how I got my name is a little embarrassing. Ma is a big fan of this show here in the States called Supernatural. It's about two brothers who hunt down evil (ie: demons, vampires, werewolves, spirits, etc.).  Well, a reoccurring character in the show is named Ruby. Ruby is a smart*ss demon.  So Ma thought, "yes! Let me name my new dog after a smart*ss demon!"...really folks, woman's got a problem...
10. What is your absolute favorite food?
Now, I have lots of favorite foods. I would have to say that my absolute favorite has to be Freeze Dried Chicken. I don't know what makes it so tasty my furends, butts it is out of this world!!


 Ruby and Mom we thank you a ton for your excellent and funny answers.  # 5 was Madi's favorite.
I you all don't know RUBY click
