Camera Critters

That handsome feline, Bruce the Cat chose us for an award!
"When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog”. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"


1. My mom know how much I love the sunshine. Because my body is old, but my mind is young, she disregards her safety and has chairs and stools set up all over the house to make it easier for me to get to my favorite spots.
2. I have a baby sister that I'm not to crazy about. She's bigger then me and has claws, but my momma won't let her hurt me.



3. I have a baby brother too. To look at the beast you'd never know he's a baby. He's huge, but he's nicer to me then sis.

4. My favorite dinner is turkey. When mom has that bird in the oven and it starts to smell, it drives me crazy. Then I drive mom crazy by sitting next to the oven and stare at her. When that doesn't work, I start mewing and walking all over her.

5. I love to go outside, but mom is protective of me. She puts me on a leash. That's okay though. It is long enough that I can walk around. Sometimes she'll walk me around the entire yard.

6. I get sick a lot. Mom never gets mad if I'm sick on the carpet. When I do get sick, I will go to her for comfort. She always hugs and kisses me and tells me it's okay and she loves me.

7. If mom lays down for a nap, I'm sure to be there. Actually on her to help her stay warm. That's what I make her think anyway.

8. I love cheese. If mom makes a cheese dish to snack on, I'm there. On her really. I will bug her until she shares with me. She always does, but it's fun to annoy her sometimes.

9. When I was younger, if mom went into a room and closed the door, I would sit outside the door mewing. When that didn't work, I would reach my arm under the door. When that didn't work I'd reach under the door as far as I could mewing as loudly as I could until she opened the door. When she did, I'd look up at her all pretty like as she was telling me that I was a 'pushy little bitch'. I'd give those half closed eyes turn with a flick of my tail and walk away victorious. BTW, she gave up closing doors. Funny thing is, I don't even go in the room with her now.

10. Momma and I have fun together. I love her and she loves me. I used to get angry with her because she paid attention to my brother and sister, but I realize now that she has a lot of love to give. And at the end of the day, I'm still her baby.

So there's ten honest things about me. I am supposed to choose 7 people to past this onto. Generally mom doesn't do this, but I asked her if she would this time. So between the two of us, here's who we selected.

Hannah, East Gwillimbury WOW, Mia & Siren, Chriss, Tom, Bobbie & Deborah

There is no obligation with the award. You can do what you want. If you would like to pass it on wonderful. If you choose not to that's fine too.

If anyone else would like to take the award and pass it on that would be fine too.

Mom and I would again like to thank Bruce. We enjoy reading his blog. He is handsome and has personality. Everything a girl could want. Stop by, say hi and enjoy his blog.

Camera Critters


It's critter time again. This week I have dedicated to squirrels.

This little one was eating the berries from the tree.




The three pictures above were taken of the telephone pole in front of my house. When I was leaving my house going back to work, I heard this loud noise. Looking around to see where the noise was coming from, this is what I was greeted with. I don't know what was causing the alarm, but I did find him/her amusing.

Watery Wednesday




It's mid week and time for Watery Wednesday. I took this picture at Cameron Wildlife Preserve. This is a nice park with asphalt walkways and dirt trails. There are lakes all over this park. The only wildlife I saw this day were camera shy ducks.

Camera Critters



It's Camera Critters time and Valentine's Day. I have decided to share my sweethearts.


Little Miss Yipper.
What an independent girl she is. Everything is on her terms.
Which is fine with me. When she wants to be petted, I pet her.
When she wants to be left alone, I leave her alone.
When she was a kitten, what a geeky looking thing she was.
But as you can see, she has grown into a beautiful young girl.

******************************
Ralphy my boy/Mr. Handsome
I named him Ralph Mouth from Happy Days.
Looking at him, for the obvious reason.
The other reason. He never shuts up. Constantly talking.
He is a gentle giant. He towers over Yipper and my baby.
He outweighs them too. But when he is with my baby and me
he is very gentle. Sometimes it's different with his sister.
*************************

Lovey/My Baby/Sweetheart
This is my baby. She has been with me for many years.
She is up there in years and the years are taking their toll
on her. She is having a harder time jumping up. I have
place chairs in places I know she loves,(the laundry room) to make it easier for her jump into her favorite window. And other areas.
I have never had a cat like her. She doesn't have a mean bone
in her body.
I got her from a friend who had to get rid of her because her daughter developed allergies. Her name was Smokey when I got here. But once I got to know her and she got to know me, Smokey didn't fit her. She loves to cuddle and she is just a love to be around. Because of this, I renamed her Lovey.
I could go on and on, but I have gabbed enough.
Maybe another time:o)

Camera Critters


It's that time of week again. The time that our critters take all the attention. Well deserved attention.
Last Saturday I went to the Wildwood Convention Center who was hosting a dog show. Yes I was in my glory.
Some dogs I felt sorry for. The owners or handlers were primping them like china dolls. Blow dryers, straighteners, curling irons, bows, etc.
But there were some that did appear to be having a good time.
This first picture is my favorite.
Click to enlarge and check out the smile.

This is my second favorite picture. I call this one
Golden Lane
