May Staycation

 Hello.  It's Emily enjoying the view from the credenza in the dining room.   The Mom person is on vacation but I'm not sure she realizes that yet.   She has been cleaning up a storm.  Doesn't she know that when I am forced to move so she can do laundry or dust that I get stressed!
So, OK,  maybe she has done a couple of things on her vacation.  She went to see a movie on Sunday night.  It's a documentary about street cats living in Turkey, it's called Kedi.  


 Mom said it was interesting even though subtitles were a bit of a challenge.  She also said that it was sometimes hard for her to see the situation of the street cats.   The people who lived there took care of them with food, shelter etc but it was still a rough life for them.
Guess what else?  The Mom was able to buy a lemon scone at the theater!  The girl behind the concession stand even let her have a cup of tap water!  Kitties--I fear that my Mom may be prissy.
Who eats a scone during a movie!
 Anyway---I'll pass things on to Winston now!
Hi there!  Do you see this fabulous scratching post?   Our "grandmum" gave it to us.  Her kitty, Miss Pearl, used to like it but then lost interest.   Score for us!  We LOVE it!
Mom also went on a drive with some friends to a restaurant on Monday.
 The restaurant was about 40 minutes away through the most beautiful country side!
 Mom even saw horses!   She said May is one of the most beautiful months.
 The restaurant was very nice, too!  After that they went shopping for a good long while.  The Mom said she got to cross a lot of items from her shopping list.  Only guess what.....she was exhausted after.  She had fun visiting and shopping but she had to rest the entire day after!  Don't worry because Emily  and I took good care of her.
 The sunset on an evening walk.
 A beautiful Magnolia tree...they are starting to fad now.
Guess what else kitties?!  It's me.   Emily.
Mom did buy me a toy!  A tiny little gopher with a fuzzy tail!

Do you see that tiny brown thing next to Winston's fluffy bum?  Well, that is my toy.  Yes, Winston took it from me and started to play with it.  Now I can't find it.  Mom said it's probably under the sofa and she can't move that on her own!
We hope you all have a good week.
Signing off
Miss Emily-still cute though wiser since she turned three

PS-Thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday on the last post!

  1. I saw 'Kedi' too, and just kept wondering how wonderful a TNR program would help those kitties! The fisherman who lost his boat but the cat led him to a wallet, was very interesting. And the fancy restaurant, with the kitty who pawed at the glass for a meal! That is a very nice scratching post, kitties!

    1. I loved the kitty who scratched on the restaurant window glass =)
      It was heartwarming to see the fisherman bottle feed those kittens!
      I also liked the quote: "If you have a cat meowing at your feet and looking up at your face then life is smiling at you" I tried to take notes! :)

    1. We are having fun...but if Mom were not watching us so much (because of the vacation) we would probably have even MORE fun.

  4. Emily, those toys are great! But you need to get YOUR toy back from under the couch. Your mom needs something with a long handle, to fish it out. It's always fun to watch our middle-aged, chubby human with her butt up in the air, fetching our toys from under the couch. :-D

    Winston, what an AWESOME scratcher! Seriously, you guys scored big time.

    Our biped is on vacation this week, but she left us for a day and a half...no cleaning for her. Tell your mom there are spare keys to our place, if she wants to teleport over and do some windows here or something. You know, in case she runs out of things to do at your home! :-)

    1. You made our Mom laugh. She knows she needs to relax a bit more. The vacation time is just flying by!
      We hope your human enjoyed her day and a half away!
      Thanks for the visit!

    1. Hello, yes! We love that cat scratcher. Mom is enjoying her staycation. We have a feeling it's because of us, Winston and Emily, that she is enjoying her time off so much.

  8. We hear Kedi was received well overall by viewers but it's good to hear your mom's take on it too. Ours had the option to see it but decided not to. Although if there had been LEMON SCONES ...! That magnolia is LOVELY!
