This post is purrticipating in The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop – to see what some of our furiends are doing this weekend please, click here and visit our dear furiends, The Kitties Blue, as well as other Sunday hoppers.
NOW, onto selfies and a bit of gossip from my own backyard AND Ohio’s mountains, where our dear furiend, Angel lives… he has very iffy wifi, but loves purrticipating in my blog…. and I am always happy to include him.
First the bit of gossip: my backyard is a mess because I have the staff moving our above-ground pool AND digging down so it will be half-way in-ground…. I love, love, love digging projects, and almost always get extra baths… WELL, within the first couple hours, my staff nearly abandoned the pool-project because the dug up bones! They were horrified about digging up a grave, so carefully collected all bones and will bury them in our pet cemetery.
None of us are sure what they might be – except that they are not human, so there was no need to call the police…. That having been said, IF they had been human, the police might have dug a good portion of this for us. Do any of you have a clue what sort of animal these bones might have belonged to?
Ehem, back to my pool-project, I’m having the staff use the dirt to fill in along the fence where that dratted armadillo sneaks through and in a low spot in the front yard where rain pools… Since I don’t go into the front yard without my harness and leash, I can’t plan in that tempting puddle…. IF I can’t enjoy that puddle, why not eliminate the temptation?
I gave my munchkins a project, too… They removed the chicken coop from my (and Katsu’s) catio and positioned it under my oak tree….. You wouldn’t believe how much bigger my catio feels without that inside! They love it out there and were so excited the first night that they refused to come inside to the little coop, which they sleep in…. It is a cozy coop.
But it’s a bit difficult to accept the fact that they are now large enough to live in it.
In fact, they’re starting to look like real chickens instead of rather homely chicks. Karen and Tori (white and I still can’t tell them apart) might never be truly cute, but I think Rusty (spotted one) is. What do you think?
CP has lots of purrsonality…. she also considers herself to be head chicken, so was thrilled when Ms. Munchkin let her have this hair-tie… She wears it like an emblem of office….
Hopefully the silkies (CP, Karen and Tori) will poof up, as their species is supposed to… Don’t tell CP I said this, but I’m thinking she looks more punk-rock-militant than purrty.
As I type this, Katsu has been snoopervising the purrject for me:… FYI, he is hanging in the hammock as he oversees the dig site. And yes the vacuum is torn apart there…. we had to scrub the whole thing someone sucked up liquid…. And, yes, Ms. Munchkin kissed him, so he is proudly wearing lipstick:
Now, I must see how much purrgress the staff has made… and take another good roll in the dirt to assure another bath.
Have a wonderful week, dear furiends! Purrseidon
