Chasing little frogs!

As a result of all the rain and rain and rain we've had for weeks and weeks (too much hyperbole there, ya think??), we have frogs, toads, and bugs galore outside. Thank heaven for windows and glass doors so my little pals can have the thrill of the chase without actually catching anything!

Grace and Ruse were really after this little frog on the outside of the back door, but to no avail.

Pretty soon Grace left, and Ruse was losing interest! It's only fun if they are really catchable, I guess!

Click on a picture to "biggify" and see the little frog in more detail. I could even see the pulse in his throat!!

Audace eats dinner

When Audace decides to eat dinner, the others back off! Then he lies there on the floor next to the food dish, takes a bite of food, drops it on the floor or the mat, and THEN he eats. What a funny cat!

Ruse watches and waits!

Grace looks on from above, out of the way. She prefers to guard the water dish.

Lazy Sunday

So far, this is a very lazy Sunday! And these photos show my view from the office chair on a very frequent basis. First, Ruse usually comes in and curls up right under the chair itself; then Audace will come into the room, looking for his pal, no doubt, and then he'll stretch out right next to Ruse. Sometimes they even snooze so they are mirror images of each other with maybe just one foot on each guy in contact with the other. Such brothers!!

Sewing snoopervisors & thread lovers

I've been trying and trying to get a couple of little dresses sewn for Kira, but all this "help" makes it difficult. Grace gets right up there where the sewing machine needle is, and I'm afraid she'll be sewn into the dress! Ahd then, whether I'm at the sewing machine or not, Audace and Ruse like to lie all over the sewing table and take naps. Another of their little tricks is taking a tiny bit of thread in their mouths and running into the other room, while the thread is coming off the spool at a faster and faster rate. What twits!

I guess I'll have to close the door whenever I'm sewing, then put everything away before opening the door again. Of course, everyone knows you cannot have any closed doors in a house with kitties in it!

Mundane Monday!

We were offline all weekend -- dratted ol' Comcast anyway. I think I'll explore AT&T and see if they'll be more reliable. Comcast is very fast, but not reliable -- and three 30-40-minute periods of time on hold is just ridiculous.

Ruse snoozed under my office chair, though, whether I was at the computer or not!

Audace went back to his favorite of favorites for a nice, undisturbed snooze ... well, until I snapped these pix, anyway!

And Grace made sure her little feeties were nice and clean!

Another new climbing toy

As Austen was assembling the newest climbing toy to join the furniture in our house, he had a full crew of snoopervisors!

Audace was especially vigilant!

Time out for a little rasslin' while they waited.

Ruse had to check it out when it was about half done.

The final product! They're still exploring and deciding if they like it or not.

Rockin' Girl Blogger

Grace has been tapped as a Rockin' Girl Blogger by the beautiful torti KC -- and she is beautiful! Now Grace needs to pick five more Rockin' Girl Bloggers. They get the beautiful pink ribbon and can then pick five more to join all of us.

Grace chooses ...

Thanks for the nomination, KC. Now for all the others to get busy and choose more!

Phew! That was hard work. Time for a nap!

July Fourth

Here's how these three precious jewels spent Fourth of July -- snoozin' and groomin' !!!

UPDATE: I was surprised. The fireworks didn't seem to bother Grace and crew as long as I was in the room with them. When I moved from room to room, they followed me. When I went to bed, they came, too! Once all the boom-booming was over (some time before 4 am!), they went back to their relatively independent ways!!
