Hanging around on Caturday morning:
Boots Tallulah Burke
Stripey, hanging out, seeing what’s going on down the hallway
happiness is an empty bag
“Wait, I’ve got an itch!”
“Are you sure you’re going to read all of these books, Mom?”
I love her blue eyes

This pic was taken on August 21, the day my cats received their new scratching post. They had totally destroyed their first one.
Now, for Caturday, I present Stripey, resting in the window:
And, Boots, doing all sorts of strange things:
She will not like it when she realizes I’ve shared pics of her as she washes her toes. Oh, well. It’s my job as a mom to embarrass my children. The four-legged ones as well as the two-legged one.

Boots, watching the keyboard.
Stripey and their new toy, a mouse on a leather strip, at the end of a stick.
He gave up on the mouse and decided to move Boots from her warm spot.
Action shot! Get the mouse!
Another action shot.
Where’d that mouse go?
Hmmm, it was here a minute ago?
Boots doesn’t care about the mouse.

Boots, next to the French doors in our bedroom.
This is Boots, on my yellow robe. This poor robe is less than a year old but it looks like it’s at least 10 years old.
Stripey, stalking a fly in the living room.
He lost the fly. Not to worry, it won’t stay lost for long LOL
“There it is, up there, on the door!”
“Now it’s on the wall”
Looking rather disgruntled, isn’t he?
A close-up. Smile! Oh and if you’re wondering about the material on the floor behind him in this and the previous pic, that’s the material from their scratching post.
Boots, on the kitchen table, playing with a bookmark.
She loves strings.
Stripey heard the string and beads rattling and had to come chase her off so that he could play.
Look, he’s a lefty.
My turn at the meal counter!

I missed last week’s Caturday. My apologies to my cats and to my readers. Last week (and the previous two, or was it three?) were absolutely crazy with my husband being sick.
I only caught the cats twice for Caturday…they are becoming sneaky like my teenager and don’t want to be on my blog. Alas, I shall have to stoop to bribery.
Wait until next week, you two, I’ll have some type of bribe that will get you out of hiding and in front of my camera!

I think they were jealous that Shadow got a whole page yesterday for Wordless Wednesday and decided to be acrobats, so that I could click pics and add them to today.
Both cats will walk along the stair rail. The top of the steps is where they are in each picture but as the stairs go down, the further it is to the floor. The rail next to the French doors at the back of the house is open all the way to our finished basement….and yes, they will jump up to that rail and walk all the way to where they perch.

It was a busy Caturday morning. I had a difficult time editing out which pictures to post. There were just a few that were blurry and those were deleted. The rest will be posted for your viewing enjoyment.
Stripey, hiding under the dining room table
“Oh, darn, that camera clicked. She must have found me!”
Boots, wanting to mop. If I thought she could, I might let her.
They were very photogenic all day long; I think they both knew it was Caturday.
In between the dining room and the kitchen.
On the kitchen table, loving on the chair.
Rubbing her cheek on my purse. She must think it’s hers?
“Doggone that mama, she found me again!”
“Yep, she did. I heard the click again.”
Nice close-up, Stripey!
“What’s in this purse? Anything for me?”
“I shall look inside. Maybe there’s catnip?”
“Nope, no catnip.”
“I still love the purse.”
“Really, I do love it.”
“Happiness is found in a purse. Can you tell I’m a female?”
These are from later in the afternoon:
Stripey, trying to squeeze himself onto the top of the cat climber, alongside of Boots.
“That’s a bit better”
“If only she’d move back a bit, I’d be more comfy!”
By now, Boots is starting to get restless and is growling in her throat, wanting the perch to herself.
“What? There’s room for the two of us up here, Boots!”
“Now she’s pushing at me with her big feet, mama!”
Well, Stripey pushed back and Boots got mad and got off the perch.
Note in the next picture: a tail under the curtains. That’s Boots.
Boots is trying to figure out if she can get back on the cat perch.
Boots managed to get back on her perch and guess who won’t leave?
“No way, Stripey, this is MY spot. You can just go bug someone else!”
“Darn it, Boots…now I guess I better bug mama!”
“First, I’ll flip my tail onto her keyboard.”
“And now I’ll sneak my hind-end up onto the keyboard and see if she notices….”
“Doggone it, she noticed and pushed me off. I’ll just sit here between the laptop and her iPod speaker.”

Suppertime at the Burke household. Ron went out and got Chinese. Boots thought she needed some shrimp fried rice, so she was circling the table and when Ron got up to get his fork, she thought it was her turn to eat.
Look at her!But, mom, there’s SHRIMP on that plate!The look of innocence…..
And then there’s Stripey. He doesn’t beg for food like Boots does. Instead, he was playing in the box that my new kitchen gadget came in (see Wordless Wednesday).
He loves boxes.Too bad he wouldn’t climb inside for a super-duper cute picture.
