Finally we get to post something. The PM was gone with the wee ones for half of last week then she was busy getting ready for yesterday which we had the whole family up for The Grampie's birthday. She said to get used to it as they are getting ready to paint the house and that apparently will take forever! We will be lucky if we get to blog once a week for the next while.

I love having company for two reasons. The first is more attention and hearing things like, "Goldie, you are such a handsome fluffy boy!". The second is that the PM always sets out these nice blanket thingies so we can truly relax while waiting for the company to arrive. She's so thoughtful that PM!



Yesterday was a busy day as we had plenty feather friends over too.



A wonderful way to spend a few hours.

Thank you for showing us your feathery friends! The American Goldfinch and the purple finch are both varieties we don't get in Europe.

It sounds like you have busy times ahead. We look forward to getting your news when you can sneak in to blog!

Purrs,
The Chans

You've got great views of birdies. And how nice of your mom to cover the table with a "blanket" for you. Enjoy the day!

Hi guys!! Good to see you!! Hey, your feathered visitors visit us too!! Wow, they sure like to travel!!

How thoughtful of the PM to put a blankie on the table just for you! We only get blankies on the table at Christmas.

Enjoy your birdie TV! We have pouring down rain today. What's up with that? Almost June and it's 50ish degrees and raining. Sigh.

CCL Wendy said...

So nice of your Mom to make the dining table more comfortable just for you kitties! What a wonderful view you have out your window, too!

I don't think I've ever seen a purple finch before -- they are quite striking. Please don't eat them!

We are going to speak to Mommy immediately about table blankets. We are forced to lay on bare wood! Shocking.
The snacks, er, birdies are very yummy-looking...we mean pretty.

You sure have some pretty birdie friends! Ours are mostly drab colors.

Wonderful pics of the birds.

I never understand why the humans get upset when I lie on the table blanket. How about at your house?
