It’s Caturday Saturday! Hope you all are enjoying a nice relaxing day. I know I am am trying to.

We’ve had some changes and busyness in my household due to the new school year and subsequent colds that happen when you have about a million kids 5 and under all mixed in to a little classroom germ factory.

So it’s been a bit less relaxing and a bit more snot taming. But you know. Whatever.

So due to the above mentioned reasons I thought I’d just do a Caturday post this week.

It’s been a few months since I shared anything about Stella or Shadow. So here we go….

 

What has Stella been up to?

Well, she has been supervising my sewing projects, as long as the kids aren’t about.

Sometimes she visits with Shadow, taunting the fact that she lives the life of luxury. But Shadow knows that outside kitty freedom is awesome. Life may not be as easy but at least he’s living a life of risk and intrigue!

Shadow

Shadow has been doing very well. He survived the winter and is as fat and happy as ever. Very loving and friendly, that one.

Here he is with his “prize” last winter. So far he and Stella are 2-2 with the mouse catching. He has probably caught way more though. Sorry Stella.

The kitties have been hanging about the shadows of this blog but I like to talk about them every now and again. Who doesn’t love seeing cute kitties right?

Next week on the blog I hope to do some new posts…dessert and books! Can never have too much of either.

Well…one might give you diabetes. But you know. Viva la vida.

Haha jk.

Caturday

A Small Furry Usurper Attempts to Overthrow King Shadow Kitty

20171018_102921-1

Caturday has returned! Last week I didn’t do a post for a number of reasons. Mostly because 1) I was tired of it and 2) the stories were getting super boring…which is why I was tired of it.

So I’ve decided to do a Caturday post I hope at least once a month. Provided I can come up with interesting stories. Because let’s face it, it’s not the cats faults that they are sometimes (ok a lot of the time) boring. They are cats. Cats like routine.

However…

Found this guy/girl (lets just settle for the male gender for clarity) in the backyard trying to sneak some cat food. Mostly just annoyed Shadow. Because lets face it pal, my cat can take you 😜 He had a brief spat with Shadow and then lurked around.

Watching. Waiting.

I was able to get gradually closer, hoping I would be able to pet him. But no luck. He was more interested in Shadow’s food. Sorry kitty it’s food for one, sadly I can’t feed the whole neighborhood.

Yes I see you!

After this picture was taken, he decided to run into the cornfield and I didn’t see him again.

But right after that another cat approached from the opposite direction. I saw him from inside and chased him off. Seriously! Scram! Haha. I do love cats but there are a lot of cats around these here parts (haha) and I’m totally not feeding them all or the husband would put his foot down. And we’d have to eat rice and beans. And the kids would not have that. Because I cannot get them to like either.

What kind of frugal mom am I anyway? The kind who keeps away stray cats, bar one so her kids and husband aren’t forced to eat unsavory food I suppose.

What about you? Any issues with small furry usurpers? How do you keep them away?
