Taking my job seriously!

As you know by now, I am a working cat.  I live with two artists.  I have to pose for paintings sometimes and that is really really hard!  Other times, I have to pose for photos and that's hard enough, believe me!  When someone clicks their fingers, I have to look at those fingers and stay that way until they say OK.  I would rather pose for pictures than for paintings because I can't take naps or even go pee until the timer goes off.  When that happens, it's a welcome relief and I hope it's over but it's usually not!  I do take my job seriously and do my best to please.  You can see how hard I'm concentrating in this picture of me with the peach blossoms.  I got to smell all the peach blossoms before work began, I have to smell all the flowers that come into the house.  I sure was glad there wasn't a bee or an ant on there, I really don't like bees, I'll tell you why one day.
Now, here is the painting that was done from the photograph.  A person in Texas bought it because she loved that my nose is exactly the color of peach blossoms, who knew!

Playing catch up

I haven't posted anything in a while because nobody would let me use the computer!  I'm pretty sure I could do it on my own.  Jean was gone for a week, I was sure she had gone off and a coyote or some other big boogiebear got her but she came back.  I was so happy to see her that I couldn't act mad, I missed her but Tom and I had a good time.  He's awesome and gave me lots of attention.  
Here's a picture of me getting my neck scratched and hanging over Jean's knee, one of my favorite places to hang out!  Yeah, I have no pride, I was one happy cat to get her back!
They say I have to dress up and get some new photos for my blog so I will have to be a good kitty kitty and do what they say.  I always get something yummy when I do good.

She's going!

Jean is going on a trip and I'm sad.  The good thing is Tom will be here with me so no telling what we'll do.  I just wish they would both be here, it's not the same!  I'm not allowed to use the computer on my own so there will be no posts until she comes back on the 18th and I have time to tell her what all we did while she was gone.  I don't think I'll go outside because Tom is scary out there but I might change my mind if he will leave the door open so I can get back in if he starts making a lot of noise.

Happy Labor Day!

No labor for me today, I'm just taking it easy.  I'm groomed and fed so it's time for a nap.  A new favorite thing of mine since it's summer is shaved frozen steak, yum yum!  I eat it while it's so cold, it's like kitty snow cone.  As soon as I eat it, I either go lay in the sun or get in my cubby hole and take a nice nap.  Naps are fun, I don't know why people don't take more of them.

I like tarantulas, I think they are cute and would be fun to toss in the air but Jean watches me like a hawk when I'm outside and she won't let me play with them.  You should hear her screaming and jumping around when I get close to one, then she grabs me and takes me inside.  When we first moved here I found one.  I patted it on the back and it felt nice so similar to one of the pom pom balls that I like.  A tarantula was living in a hole in front of the house, I had been watching it.  One day it was out of the hole, sitting on the water hose when Jean came along and picked up the hose.  The tarantula got off the hose and headed toward it's house when she saw it and had one of her fits, of course!  She put a rock on the hole but in a few days the tarantula had made an escape route beside the rock, they are smart, another thing I like about them.  I thought I was eventually going to get to play with it but then here comes Steve over!  They got a jar and Steve brought his video camera, you can see what happened next if you watch this video:  Jean held the camera and missed the part where it came up out of that hole, I think she got busy having one of her fits.  I wanted to grab it but I was told to stay out of the way!  They took the poor tarantula way over on the other side of the road, I've been watching the hole area in case he comes back but so far there has been no activity.  I put my eye over the hole and looked but he's not home!

Ignorance is bliss

You want me to do what?  I don’t understand that command.  No, I still don’t get it.  Can’t hear you!

I'm a little worried and trying to figure out what is going on.  At first I thought they were going on a trip which means I have to stay home with Steve.  Steve works so he's not here as much as he should be and that means I'm alone too much!  Jean was packing up her art supplies and clothing so I was sure they were leaving but she didn't pack the usual bags and nobody got the French easels so now, I'm just worried and don't know what's going on!  They left with the boxes and then they came back without the boxes.  If they go on a trip, they call it teaching a workshop, I don't get to go outside and I miss them!  I won't sleep with Steve unless he turns that loud fan off and he says he can't sleep without it.  I miss my usual people and having things done the way I'm used to having them!  I'm keeping my eyes and ears open!
