Mario's Box Day / Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Hi pals,

It's not too often that we get a paper box in this house, but whenever we do, I'm hopping in it before the peeps have a chance to get it ready for recycling. This one was a good one as it was just my size.  You will probably see it again on National Box Day.

I'm joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.   Go over to Pepi's site and take a look around. His mom writes a very interesting blog as she helps rescue wild animals in Australia.

Now, please join us and hop along with us.

Important Business - Thankful Thursday

Hi Pals,

Please excuse my back, but I have very important business.  The windows are finally open and I need to keep my eyes on the chipmunk that runs along side the house. It has only been this week that it's been warm enough (according to M) to open the windows, so I must patrol every second of the day and night.

I'm hopping on the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and hope you will join us.  The host is    Thanks Pepi's mom for doing this again this week.   

Now excuse me, I need to get back to my important job.

Patience - You Be The Judge

Waiting  Patiently for someone to fill the sink with water so I can have a drink!
Also, this is the entry into the Caturday Art Blog Hop

(used Mezzotin Filter in Photoshop Elements 10 for effect above)

Hi Pals,

In my last blog post, I told you that M is always telling me to have patience.   Now does it look like I'm patient in the picture above or any of those listed below?

Me waiting Patiently for M to play with me before bed.

Waiting Patiently for dinner

Me waiting Patiently for my treat after dinner

Waiting Patiently for M to play feather with me some more.

Waiting Patiently for M to help me with my bloggie.

What do you think?   Do I have lots of patience or not?    I think I'm the most patient kitty around.  When I am being patient, I don't meow or say anything or bug anyone.  I just sit there and Patiently wait. (he he - I put the peeps on a big guilt trip when I sit so patiently!

I'm joining AthenaTheCatGoddess Caturday Art Blog Hop.   Hop on with us  and meet new pals.   Just click on her link to hop over to each blog.

Happy Sunday, Happy Spring

Happy Sunday and Happy Spring Pals,

I am getting so excited because pretty  soon I should be able to convince M and  D to take me outside on my harness and leash.   I keep asking now and then, but M always says "It's too cold Mario."  Well!  I have a coat of fur on, so it isn't too cold for me?  She always says "one day soon Mario.  Just have patience."  Sigh!   I'm tired of "have patience."  

I might as well get my easy on while on one of my window perches!   I like "Easy Sunday's" so much that I asked M to help me with an "Easy Sunday selfie."   

Giulietta over at is hosting the Selfie Blog Hop this week. Go on over there and join it - it's fun and you'll meet lots of nice new pals.  

Excuse me now pals, but I need a nap!   zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Goodbye For Now Missy Keiko

Hi Pals,

This morning my human sisfur's kitty (and her husband who I call SIL) flew away to the Rainbow Bridge.    She lived a good life for 18 years, and her humans and M and D and I will all miss her.  

Keiko and her housemate, Amos, used to come to our house to stay when their humans went on vacation.   Keiko (whom we called Missy Hissy because she was skiddish and hissed whenever afraid, used to play games together.    M says I would stalk her, but Keiko would tease me and all she had to do was hiss and I'd back off.   She enjoyed the games as much as I did because sometimes she would come looking for me and tease me to follow her.   I think she would have made a cute girlfriend, but both of us were "fixed" (whatever that means).

We are going to miss you Keiko, but know you won't have to hurt anymore and be afraid.   I'm going to watch for your star in the heavens tonight as I know you will be perched on one keeping watch over the world just like you did at home and our house by looking out the front window.  

Fly high sweet girl and one day, a long time from now, we'll see you again!
