I'm thinking this might be......

 I thought I was a Jaguar Gal.....but evidently I'm not
I am Madi, Diva Alpha Cat, and like Alfa Romeos
I think the bottom of the grill where the black mesh is looks
like cat eyes and it has a cute little tushie too
and some mighty fine wheels
Mom kinda snubbed her nose at it....WHY?....because it isn't RED.
I said Mom IT is an Alfa who cares what color it is...

This little beauty is on display at Crabtree Valley Mall.  They always have
cars on display but this is the first fancy smancy sport's car and it
can be yours for $72,000 and some change.

Thursday Tunnel Tale: Part 2

The tale of my tunnel is ever evolving.  For a second time
Mom caught me near my FnE tunnel 

She was ready but I said
Then wonders never cease...finally I gave in my head was at the

HEAD
Then
(I was kinda invisible in the) 
MIDDLE


(all that was showing was my)
TAIL

Then once again I went out BASS-ackwards stopping just in time to be headless
THE END


If you missed Part 1, click here

PS Mom says to tell everybuddy there is over a foot of room behind my tunnel so
technically (my photographer is not good about noticing angles and such) I could go out the back, then make a sharp left.
Mom's friend, Ms. Ramona, who is a very talented artist and has show horses said....

Madi, are you part horse. They will go in one way and back out the same way. No amount of pulling or pushing can make some of them go out the other end.
Mom says I am for sure all about being showy.

Tuesday Tunnel Tale..Part I

My yellow *FnE tunnel has 2 openings...but for some reason 

I go in one way

 but will not walk
 out the back door
Mom said I'm....
 Bass-ackwards....
to which I replied... MOM you said 
a dirty word backwards!!

Note from Mom:  I was sitting in the recliner across the room thank goodness I had my
iPad. I clicked away as Madi backed out...wide load and all.  *Frankie and Ernie sent this to me...
Lately she has been sleeping or resting in it.
TO BE CONTINUED......Thursday

What we do when it sleets

ME before mom made the bed 


ME after mom made the bed 
it was cold and dreary so I went under cover.


 MOM





OMCs we had about 1" of sleet/freezing rain on Friday. Saturday morning it started snowing and
snow off and on all day.  Good news is the snow left a nice powder surface on top of the sleet...easy walking.  We might thaw out by April.  Our house faces North.  Mom said Gracie, the Highlander has about a 1/8" ice coating.
