A great start to the week as I was soooo close to be being grounded from the computer. First off, a flock of robins descended and have been having a great feast of sumac fruit. The wee ones are all excited as that means Spring should be right around the corner. The problems started when the PM accused me of allegedly trying to "kill" them. I was NOT trying to harm our wonderful winged friends, I was simply crouched down near them to whisper a warm welcome to these parts and to ask how their winter was. Jeesh!!!!

Then the PM took the wee ones out as it was very nice and they were going to shovel away some of the ice. As you know, I have a fondness for using the "facilities" in the great outdoors. They scooped some frozen poo in the snow and did not realize that I had done my business in various spots in the yard, our really big yard. Shade had informed me that the snow turned to water so I guess I was hoping the poo would turn into a rock or maybe something pretty like tulips. Well, they turned into grey mush which was now half mush/ half buried treasure in a layer of ice. They also have taken on some magical powers as they seem to attract the wee ones boots like a nail to a magnet.

The PM spent the afternoon yelling "Watch where you are walking!", "Go walk in that slush puddle to get that poop off!" and "Goldie! $#@&*%!!!!!!" She also had to shovel it all and hack the frozen stuff out like a miner digging for gold.

When she came in she was fitted to be tied but I showed her these next pictures and she totally forgot about the poo problem, for now. Our new special kitty friends at Zoolatry and their super Mom made these for us and we are very excited. They are wonderful!!! What talent!

Thank you so much, Maggy and Zoey!!!!!

Last week we were also given the following award by our friend Sweet Ariel. Thank you so much!

Irishcoda said...

Oh boy I remember the days when my kids were wee ones and handled animal poo (usually the neighbor's dog) without realizing it ewwwwwwwww! So the PM must be feeling better now, hope so! And those folks at Zoolatry sure are talented!

Well, you can't be blamed for wanting to welcome the robins, or for using the great outdoors as your litterbox. We would do both of those if we were allowed outside.

Those are wonderful graphics that Zoolatry made for you! They are so talented and generous. :)

Gandalf has welcomed a few too many Birdies, too. Mom got us collars with bells to try to give the birdies some advance warning, but they seem to be deaf. Or stupid.

Halloween said...

Goldie, crouching by the birdies is a great idea! When you see the birdies again, tell them I said hello too! The pics of you and Shade are very pretty.

Purrs, Halloween

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Awww come on...I can't believe your bean was upset about little feet getting in your poo! Did your bean think the poo would magically disappear?

PB 'n J said...

A little poo never hurt anybody - that's what mommy says to daddy when she makes him clean our boxes!

Those pictures from Zoolatry are beautiful, you're lucky to have such works of art!

The Furry Kids said...

Hee hee!

Those are very lovely pictures of you guys. We hope it warms up for you soon.


Daisy said...

I guess the poopsicles are not so good when they become unfrozen. Oh well, poop happens!

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Hi Goldie! Just want to say that yes, absolutely, kinky whiskers are just as good!

Congratulations on your award. Spooky passed it on to me, and there's no question that all of us are totally hip!

I love your Sunday morning radiant pictures....you shine beautifully!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Wowwwwww! What beautiful graphics of you two! Those Zoolatry kitties are jsut sooooo artisitic. I always do my business outdoors but then again we don't have snow and I do it on the far end of the garden and on the soil/flower beds as natural fertilizer. The birdies that visit my garden are big and not very interesting. I only watch them.

Congratualtions on your award and thankyou for giving it to me. I am not so sure I deserve it as my blog is not terribly interesting and I can't really show any toys or accessories since I don't have any.

Mickey's Musings said...

Have you ever considered using a litterbox? That would solve the spring cleanup problem.
