Getting Ready For Thanksgiving ~ Sunday Selfies


A very late gallardia, for which we are thankful, its so pretty! It was a 'volunteer', just grew up in the middle of the lawn!

MrJackFreckles wonders if this might be a good spot to hunt for a Thanksgiving Turkey...or maybe venison, since its deer hunting season now...this was taken a few days ago...today is dark and cold and snowy...OMD!
Well, its less than a week before Thanksgiving! Wow! Time flies. Petcretary was working the past few days, and the weather was superb for this time of the year...but she wanted to get outside to finish mulching/mowing...today...but nope, the weather was not cooperating. It snowed! And there was accumulation, yikes!
Snow
Pipois patiently waiting for a bird to chatter and chirp at.

A birdie just flew away.


We are watching a chickadee...
Shucks. Though it did mean she stayed inside with us all day:) Which was great until she thought, hey, its a good time to make some pre-Thanksgiving pictures, and help the furs take their selfies...She had been watching the Michigan Wolverines vs Indiana Hoosiers College Football game...and UofM won!! Go blue!! Hail!!

Pipo was not at all thrilled to take time out from bird watching...
Hey, that burd doesn't even move...






MrJackFreckles was a tad more interested on account of the treats that petcretary showed him...but...appawrently they were not  the premium desirables he was thinking about...BOL!
*This* is the burd we hunted for by the woodpile??

Well, take that! Hmmm, tastes like...fake-turkey!
Waiting for a big day is hard work...can't it get here any faster??
Minko decided it was a good day to give petcretary some nice pictures, maybe then he will score more catnip and mousies, since he of course will only sniff at food and not eat any unless petcretary makes him eat..sigh...wouldn't we all be evfur so eternally thankfur if he began to eat on his own again?? We sure would.
Maybe this is one reason Pipo doesn't like 'picture sessions'??
Pipo, Can I join you??
I hate this so much...he is pestering my behind side...
'PBP' = PhotoBombingPest...

Petcretary was doing some of Basil's word search puzzles...so he has badges for those:
Feel free to visit there and do some of his puzzles too:)

We are joining up and hopping along with The Sunday Selfies as we wait for Thanksgiving. This hop-along is hosted by The Cat On My Head

Have some yummy Thanksgiving Cake as you wait for 'The Big Day of Thanks'.

  1. You have some lovely selfies there guys, and the colours of that display are fabulous, truly. But what's that, fake Turkey? I can sure see why Mr Freckles would be a bit upset. Have a great week, and hopefully no more snow. purrs ERin

  5. Crikey Mr JF Sir .... I feel for you, mate! I'd sit there for treats too but it's still mighty embarrassing, aye? That one of you with that turkey bloke on your head ... Oh my ... I didn't laugh ... Honest!!!! It's alright for Pipo and Minko ... They're just cats but you and me, mate, downright wrong, aye? It's snowing at your house already! How good is that? The snow pictures will be coming soon. I love your snow photos. Oh and I helped myself to heaps of that cake. How good does it look. Thanks!!

  7. Beautifully festive selfies ... you could all be models! Bear Cat isn't nearly as cooperative. And he's jealous that you all have such fantastic bird tv :)

    1. Hi! Thanks for dropping by:)
      If we were models, we would drive the petcretary out of her mind...to get one good picture takes a million or so bad ones...and if he had to make really good modeling ones, OMC!! Not gonna happen said the petcretary! MOL!
      We didn't see too many burds today...the weather was soggy all the day lng...but they come in droves when the sun is out. But...we only watch them onoccasion, we get annoyed that we cannot get close to sniff them and lay with them...

  10. That cake looks yummy and your selfies are all wonderful. Sorry Minko was disturbing your photo shoot Pipo. My cats do that because they know treats will be served soon after the shoot. I bet that turkey didn't taste like you hoped it would MJF. Good job to your Mommy on the puzzles. I printed out this week's puzzle, but I haven't been able to finish it-no badge for me yet. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! XO

  12. Those are wonderful! I have such a hard time getting Siamese Fergus to cooperate with props in photos. He always bats them out of the frame before I'm ready to snap the shot!

    1. Hi, Sidd-Henry!
      Thanks so much for coming to visit us.

      Petcretary sure *would* be evfur so happy if he ate on his own...all she wants for Christmas as a self eating kitty...MOL! Now that sounds kind of silly...at least he does let her feed him imagine if he would not allow it.
      Pawppy cannot do it, he bites him:(
      Unfurbro-the-elder can do it, but he doesn't live here...that is why he has to go to the 'spa' when petcretary is out if town.

      MJF wants to shred that head gear...

    1. Hi, Dezi and Raena and Auntie Audra!
      Thanks!

      Yup, we had some snow...but we sure were glad we did not get the dumping on that other parts of the USA had after that snow came through here. It sure made a mess in New York and the middle of the country. Winter just wanted to arrive early we think.
      Our snow is all gone now...but we have had lots of dreary days of rain and even fog.

  16. These pictures are just adorable. We can't believe you got so much snow! We're still getting weather in the 50's.

  17. Pipo, Minko and Jack Freckles those selfies are super. What a beautiful flower that decided to move in. If he is a perennial it would be nice.
    Is our pal Minko on any Steroid? Buddy got a shot and it kicked his motor over and now he takes a little bit and he is quite filled out now. Email us if you ever want to chat.

    1. Hi, Timmy and furmily!
      Thank you!

      That flower is a gallardia, and yes it is a perennial. It will be put in a better place next year. Its all droopy now, since that snow fall, and we have had cold nights down to 19 a few days ago. No more flowers here...

      Minko gets 5mg of prednisolone each day, alternating with 2.5mg if he is not being stressed about things. If he gets loose bowels then we sty on the hugher does too. Or too mich vomiting.
      He gets famotadine,at night, and prilosec in the morning. And vitamin B and probiotics too. His grain free pate noms are without those nasty ingredients that cause bowel issues, such as carrageenan. Petcretary doesn't buy noms for any fur or two legger with that, and we are all on grain free here, even the peeps! (Paleo). Minko did get a shot of depomedrol when this first started but it did not seem to make any difference,and the appetite stimulant did not do anything either other than make Minko become a yowling werewolf-kitty:(

      He did gain about 1 1/2 pounds since he began to be hand fed,and he maintains that on the amount he gets...so at least while it is a pain to do and time consuming, he does fine this way and out of the love we have for him we will continue this way as long as we can.
