I’m taking a break from my break to do a Christmas post. Merry Coyote Christmas! Happy Catmas! Merry Christmas!

Silly Kitties

Glenda

Does anyone remember Silly Putty? Is that stuff still around? We have Silly Kitties. Some of their positions are pretty putty-like.

I got this case out to measure the inside dimensions to see if a travel guitar will fit inside it. Sasha claimed the case the moment I opened it. Glenda was not too sure about Sasha appropriating the case. Is this a case of a cat casing a case? In case you are wondering, yes, a travel guitar will fit inside the case.

Studies In Lights & Skies

Spunk: “What’s this crap you are forcing on your viewers now? At least it’s more colorful than coyote crap!”

Loki: “This is how you make ‘Art’ Paparazzo. All you need is a sharp set of claws! Your Bazooka is lame when it comes to shredding!”

Sasha: “You’re making my eyes weird with those ‘Enlightened Stool Samples’ or whatever you called them.”

Only 69 Days Left

Dawn

The crescent moon shining through the clouds at dawn.

There are only 69 days left until Halloween, and Lowe’s has you covered! I walked into Lowe’s to buy some supplies for a project and was greeted by ghoulish displays.

The big guy is ten or twelve feet tall. He lights up, flashes, wiggles, and growls when you step on the button.

Spunk doesn’t give a paw about Halloween.

Loki and Glenda think they define Halloween. Silver and Spunk could care less.

How To, Loki, Flowers

I irrigated on Thursday. A gopher hole created an unwanted lake that was draining water that the plants needed. After 30 minutes of trying to plug the hole where it was flowing out of the grand, which I knew wouldn’t work, I finally found two holes that were the source and plugged them. Not before getting a significant-sized lake. The whole thing reminded me of how the Salton Sea was created.

Loki was practicing his cat tree ballet.

New Tree

Sasha giving me the eye.

Cat tree that is. We got a new cat tree for the deck. Tristan and Craig put it together for the kitties this afternoon. Sasha was the first to try it, loved it, and made cuter and cuter poses on it.

It wasn’t long before we ended up with a Cat 5 on the new cat tree.

Silver and Gwendolyn

Mary and Paul are still on the big cottonwood. I think Paul is waiting for Mary to get where she can make the flight across the ditch.

Content Like A Cat

Continuing with the collaboration* between JYP and the AWB, Content Like a Cat is our first original song. JYP wrote the lyrics, I wrote the music, played, and recorded the song.

Content as a Cat
By JYP and the AWB

They don’t need
the new hot thing
Cats find their joy
batting a piece of string

To enjoy meals,
cuddles, treats, and snacks.
To have no worries
Except “I’m late for my nap!”


To be as happy and content as a cat
That is our life’s goal
To be as happy and content as a cat
In the dirt, we’ll roll
To be as happy and content as a cat
We’d scratch on a pole
To be as happy and content as a cat
Fulfills us, makes us whole

They don’t need cars,
fancy clothes or yachts
Oh, to be as happy
as a cat in a box!

The cats approve this song.

Buddy knows how to be content like a cat, also.

Gwendolyn

Sasha is “as happy as a cat in a box!”

And so is Loki!
