Cousins Are Fun - Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Tucker and me on bed after D gave us belly rubs.


Tanner all comfy and spending more time upstairs with us these days instead of in the basement.


Hi Pals,

I've decided cousins are lots of fun.   No we haven't played together yet - at least not touching, but I have lots of fun watching them.   We are into day 12 already, and I don't want them to go home - ever.   

 M, on the other hand, will be happy when they go home in 3 days.   She says she and D are too old to be kitty sitting 2 year old's and last night was the topper!

M & D go to a certain big box store to stock up on certain groceries once a month because that store is so much cheaper.   But it's a lot of work, and M says they are getting too old to do that anymore.   But they went last night.  M had D bring the items to the garage door that goes into the house and she said she'd take them from there because they were afraid Tucker would get out.   Sure enough, he got out anyway.   They have learned to keep the overhead door  closed to the garage, so at least he couldn't get outside.  But it was a merry chase to get him back in the house again.

As M was getting ready for bed last night, Tanner went into her closet and started to climb up her  clothes, over hangers and wanted to be on the bottom shelf, which has shoe boxes piled on it.   She got him down from there pronto and closed the closet door.   he he - Tanner was so cute about it too, I thought. M said that is why 2-year-old kitties are too much work for she and D anymore. They are constantly into things.  He he - at least I got called "Mario - good boy."

But M says they can be very very sweet too.  Tucker usually lays on the bed with M during the day when she's resting her back.   He cuddles up close to her and takes a nap.  She loves it because I always curl up in a ball when in bed with M or D.

I'm thankful my cousins came so I could get to know them better.  I'm joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Join us and have some fun.

Two year old kitties are definitely lots of work...lots of fun too, though!

Marg said...

Oh I so understand about not being able to do as much now. Getting older is not any fun. I am just thankful to be on this side of dirt. You all have a great day.

Hmmm, maybe after a while you all might begin to feel youngish again! Just maybe...but well, wee ones or frisky ones do 'sap' your energy:)

Glad you are enjoying your cousins, Mario!

Tanner and Tucker sound adorable - even if they are a bit exhausting for the humans!

Brian said...

That is so cool Mario and I'm so glad y'all are getting along so well!

Mario, pal, Mom and I are SOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of you! See? I KNEW you would be the perfect gentleman with your cousins, and from the sound of things, it appears the youngsters could learn from your gentlemanly ways!! So happy you are enjoying them but poor M & D!! Love Cody and Mom catchatwithcarenandcody

It is nice to meet relatives and friends but it's also not so bad when they finally go home and the house returns to normal (or whatever passes for that!). Have fun while they're there - then enjoy your PEACE when they leave - I bet they'll be back for more visits!

Hugs, Sammy

They are happy house guests and wonderful cousins. You are a fabulous host!!! ❤️❤️❤️

The Island Cats said...

Mario, we're glad you like having your cousins around. But we know how rambunctious youngsters can be. After all, we were young once. :)

Lone Star Cats said...

Yeah, us young kitties can be crazy!

And I loved the adventures!

We're so glad you're starting to like them. :)

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Oh my mouses your cousins are a paw full, huh? TWO paw fulls even, perhaps.

Climbing clothes? MOUSES! I've never done that but I understand my Auntie Snowdrop did that once, way back when, right after she had been spayed. Didn't work out so well for her on account of her pulling out a stitch or two and needing to go back to the doctor.

But HOW WONDERFUL that you're having such fun with your cousins. Who knows, maybe they'll come visit again.

Purrs,
Seville

Mom has learned when Ping decides he has to go into the garage she beeps the horn on the car and he bolts right inside like lightening!
Sorry we have been MIA, we blame Mom, we do that because we can, AND it's the truth.

Wow, Mario! That is a big "paradigm shift" as the humans sometimes say! We're glad you're enjoying your cousins!

Mario, I'm so glad you're enjoying your cousins and you're all getting along. Hopefully they're not tiring your mom & dad out too much or keeping them up too late with all their young-kitty antics.

The Menagerie Mom said...

The young ones sure can give you a run for your money, can't they? I currently have one almost 3-year-old cat, two almost 2-year-old cats, and a 10-month-old cat at my house. There's also a 3-year-old dog. They're all sweethearts, but they sure don't let me get bored. Purrs!

Austin Towers said...

What a lot of fun you are having, Mario!! I am still into things and I'm nearly nine!!! MOL xxx

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

What fun, the more the merrier! Happy Caturday!

Cathy Keisha said...

That is so cool that you and your cousin can lay so close on the bed. It's unusual since you've been an only cat for so long.

Jans Funny Farm said...

But your mom and dad are not too old for smiling at the antics. :)

Glad you are enjoying their company, Mario.
