Mondays With Meredith Ann

Another Rainy Monday has arrived.
It's what Mom calls
I know, you thought I'd say
Raining Cats and Dogs
but no I did not say that.

Oh, drink your coffee

This week Mom went shopping.
She brought me a lovely toy.
It has a comfy mat area.
A scratching area.
And two toys to bat at.
Mom keeps having to find them.
Luckily, they snap on.
It keeps her busy.
Nothing like an old lady bending over
first thing every meowning
to put the feathery balls
back on so I can swat them off.
Mom also got us a new house
She put it downstairs
This is Riley trying it out
I think he was doing his toes.
Til next week,
~ Meredith Ann ~

What a great new house! We also have a mat with snap-on toys, but we don't use it much. Annie likes it when our mom wiggles the end of one of our feathered sticks under that mat--she likes to pounce on it, likes the crinkly sound it makes. :-)

That new house is swell! Have a great week Meredith Ann :)

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

We have a house like that, but only I get to use it 'cause I'm the head cat!! ...The other cats aren't really interested in it anyway.

Have a great day!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

ps. We play the pick'em up game with our Mom ALL the time!! It's great fun! Hehe!

A few days it was raining here too but now the sun has returned and I was able to bath in sun puddles.

So nice to see that mum got you a nice toy and we love the tent. Dad just got me one a day before halloween but I'm not sureI will use it since I like my huge pillow.

Wishing you all the best,
Ms Kitty and Egmont

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
