This is Pitiful.....

It really is.  This post that is.  I think I forgot how to blog.

Is it possible that you could really forget how to blog?


I know it has been too long since I’ve been out here to post.  It's not that I haven't been trying to get out here for almost a week now.

And I knew it was time to come back, past due in fact, and yet I couldn't think of exactly what to post.  I mean I didn't have some grand adventure of tom-catting to tell you about – nope, don’t have the parts for that anymore, thank you very much!

What are you searching the picture for? It’s just a picture of moi, and no, you won’t see the missing parts.  They are missing, remember? Besides, that would not be proper. Sheesh.

Besides, it wouldn’t matter if I did have tom cat parts….you see a coyote has been spotted in the area twice during a three week period.  Coyotes and cats?!   Nope, no way, bolt the doors and lock the windows, bring in the mice and d*gs.  Yes, seriously.  Coyotes are not to be reckoned with.  So the only time I’m going out now is to supervise "her" outings.  Lucky for me, I had an opportunity last week…..

You can see that I am doing a fine job, yes?  I worked hard and slept well that night let me tell you!  But I knew that you wouldn’t be too impressed with my hard work as a supervisor, so I decided to drag “her” outside and see if we couldn’t find something interesting.  I know you like pictures and old tattered things, so I wandered off to the barn….

I have my own chair up in the loft, but the sun was already fading and the lighting wasn't good, so I’ll have to show you my chair next time.  It's old and tattered and it's alllllll mine! Not that anyone else would want it....

We wandered through the woods.  I was looking for something interesting.  And the ticks were looking for “her”.  So far, no sign of any.  Today. The ticks that is. Two days ago, you bet.  It isn't too early. Today though none.  Ticks. No ticks. Just as well because I still didn’t have anything decent to share with you. And a tick would have sent "her" straight into the house.

But we did stay outside and wandering we did find a few signs. Of new life. Of spring.

But many of you have already started seeing signs of your own.  So I knew that wasn’t very exciting either…..so then I decided to try taking a picture of the sun....well sort of…

I didn't burn my eyeballs because the sun was getting lower on the horizon. But we headed back to the house, before the coyotes came out for dinner.  The house....definitely not the most exciting place, but safe.

Well except for the lions waiting to come inside and be part of some grand scheme "she" has....

And safe except for the panther that sits in Dad’s rocking chair waiting to bounce me upon my return....

And what about the bird’s nest?  Oh sure, you think it’s harmless…..but how do you know? There might be a giant bird getting ready to swoop down and peck me on the head any moment.  Maybe a woodpecker, one of those big humongous, gigantic ones.....

It could swoop in and get me.  Peck a hole right in the old noggin and eat my whiskers.  At which point “she” would have to rush me to the emergency clinic because all my brains might leak out the pecked hole in my head.  And without any whiskers I'd bump into everything. Can you imagine?!? Oh, the horror.  And if I survived the killer-beak-bird-woodpecker, I have no doubt, that I would be permanently scarred – both physically and emotionally.  There’s a lesson there….not everything is as quiet and innocent as it may seem…..

Case in point....this is "her" office.  One day "she" decided that the seemingly harmless faux ficus tree had to go....  If "she" ever gets the room put back together, I'll tell you about it and how it is NOT and has NOT been quiet in there for four weeks.  And how that faux tree was not harmless. I wonder, does anyone else take this long for a redo?

Oh Romeo, i'm so glad you're back blogging. Never mind if you don't have any great adventures to tell at the moment. It's just lovely hearing from you. Watch out for that old coyote, although I'm sure you could take him if you wanted to. Bye, bye, Big Boy. blessings

Welcome Back! How wonderful that you have spring showing ~ not here ~ still lots of snow! :(

Glad you are being kept inside with that coyote running around. Safety first I always say!

Hope March treats you well sweet Romeo!

I ought to pull your whiskers out myself for being so naughty and not posting in such a long while!!! But instead I'll just have to give you a long belly rub and ear scratchings, because I have missed you. You know, I felt quite scared myself when you told me about the birds nest and the wicked killer-beak-bird-woodpecker. I won't ever be able to look at a birds nest again without getting goose bumps of the worst kind.

Oh Romeo- I was so happy this morning to turn on my 'puter and see you here! I have missed your purrfect posts! It is not spring here yet-still about a foot+ of snow on the ground...and I am so longing for a daffodil or two.

Watch out for that coyote. Skeery devils~ we have hawks here that go after baby cats-doesn't that make you feel like cry-eowing?

Please don't be gone so long next time AND I want to see your chair in the loft. I'll bet it is just purrfect! Hugs and kisses-Diana

Romeo stay safe. Those coyote's are not nice to kitties! Enjoy your outings and then hurry home.

That coyote gives you any trouble and I'll be right there
to chase him off - Howie

Diane said...

I was so afraid that a coyote had already taken you away for his dinner or that a "humongous" woodpecker had pecked a hole in your head. So glad to see you're back at the computer.

Who says cats don't think very much??? I think yu thinbk a WHOLE lot! I always thought my kitties were thinking about atomic theories and the theory of relativity and things like that. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe they were just trying to make sense of what goes on in the world of our household and yard. That's a pretty big thing to think about, too.

Help "her" get that room put back together so she can spend more time with you and those other cats.

Have a wonderful day, Romeo, and tell "her" to have one, too. Diane

Oh Romeo, Romeo, you are cat-astrophizing. You can not think those thoughts and scare your loyal fans.
You do make a wonderful supervisor.
Keep her on track. She will thank you for it once all the heavy lifting is done.
My furkids only keep me on the feeding schedule, not the get-it-done household track.

I am really curious about the lions. Maybe they should stand guard outside against coyotes and humongous pointy beaked birds.

Purrfect photos as usual my furry friend! Sorry to hear about you de-Tomming, but sure there comes a time in every kitty's life when these things have to be done. It's for the best. Oh, and as for the coyote just be glad it's not an evil spider ;) I definitely agree with your sentiments there! Anyway, take care little pussy cat,

Oh Romeo do be careful as the coyotes here attack baby deer. The panther is very elegant but no one is as well spoken as you. Clovis says hi but he is quite sleepy at the foot of the bed looking out the window. hugs♥olive

Rebecca said...

Good to have you back Romeo! And yes, the Coyotes are not a good thing to be messing with.
When is she going to IL and where in this magnificent state? Tell her to bring warm clothes because it is still the dead of winter here...
Have a wonderful week

Thank you Romeo,
Thank you for your visit, and the cream was delicious. I hope you took a long rest on the fluffy pillow I set out for you on her bed...I hope you felt like a king, and found it a purrr-fect place to rest and lick those paws.

Thank you for the beautiful comment left on your way home.

Love all you and her inspire over here.
I will be back to visit soon.
I have so much to catch up on with you both when I return.

Have a beautiful (purrr-tiful) rest of the week!

Whisker kisses!!

Silly kitty,
We would love to hear from you no matter if you think you have anything "interesting" to post about or not!
It's good to se you and not the coyotes.

Wow! Romeo you made up for lost time...great post!
Glad to hear you are missing some parts...it's the only way for cats to go, you know? Violet and Duncan, the cats who supervise us, are missing parts too. You probably don't remember that Duncan was very ill...it wasn't conjunctivitis, it is FIV...still in shock...think he came to us with it. We are fighting to save one of his beautiful blue eyes. He's a trouper though.
Sorry to hear you didn't make the trip...she found some gorgeous things!! Hope family is better. Glad you are back to blogging. Vicki
