Anyway, it's just awesome! Why awesome, you ask? Well, 'cause the best thing to do when it's wild outside is to grab yourself a human and get to some serious cuddling!
In a pinch, another cat will also do the trick, but it's best to make sure they are CLEAN first!

I've heard this human saying that "curiosity killed the cat". Well, now, I don't think it's all that drastic, but - if I do say so myself - we are a pretty inquisitive lot!
I don't think Deer is a very good mouser - or she's gotta find a new place to go mousing everyday - 'cause she never, ever brings any mice home to play with or nibble on! A few times a week, though, she'll bring Macks back little sweet samples from a coffee shop right next door to where she goes all day. They're not mice, but he does seem to like them. Well, a few days ago, she brought home something for Macks and left it on the kitchen table for him. I didn't think anyone would mind or notice if I tried to find out what all of the hubbub was about!
So, in fine feline fashion, I snuck up and snatched the treat and took it into the spare room to conduct my investigation:
It was some sort of pumpkin bread.
It was good.
I ate the whole thing.
I'll start my diet...tomorrow, I promise.

Washie has chosen the sink balance beam as his favorite apparatus:
Maddie exercises her right to vote and suggests keeping things the same (aka letting someone else push the buttons):
Deer went away for too many days a little while ago to same place called Orlando for, what she called a confurence...we didn't get that part because she doesn't have any fur!
Then we got really worried thinking that she went to go see other cats but all she saw was some overgrown mouse in a tuxedo and this creepy crawly on a tree by the hotel pool!
We're glad she didn't bring home the creepy crawly, but she should have brought home the big mouse for us to play with and to nibble on!
In other news, it snowed here at Camp Shorewood and we got a couple of inches. It sure is pretty out there. We're hoping it snows as much as it did last year because it makes for the best cuddling and napping weather ever!
Again, Happy Happy Birthday Daddy! WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Come visit us at Camp soon, ok?

Has it been already one year since we've been at Camp Shorewood?! We've sure had a lot of fun and learned lots of new things!
- Washie got to know the Humans at the Emergency Vet Hospital shortly after we got here. He didn't like that too much, but thought getting his belly shaved was pretty cool!
- Deer likes to bring the Big Scary Yellow Monster that lives in the front closet out at least once a week for a walk around Camp. We don't like the Monster and we hide in the closet 'til it goes back home.
- When it snows ALOT! Macks and Deer get to stay home and we can sleep on them. We like snow days...we think they do, too!
- Maddie likes it when Deer plays with her pretty string.
- We learned that we both have very famous Japanese cousins.
- We developed a new Olympic sport, Synchronized Cat Napping. Watch for it in London in 2012.
- Washie has been been unsuccessfully trying to launch an attack against that Seattle Beastie. He is still determined and will not give up.
- We got to spend a lot of time with Deer in April-June. She seemed sad to be home all the time...but we were very happy! She went back mousing in July and she seems a lot happier. We miss her very much during the day, though!
- Macks and Deer go out on long mousing trips on their bikes when it is warm out. They must eat their mice on a picnic or something, 'cause they haven't brought any back for us!
We miss you lots and lots and hope that you will come visit us soon (WITHOUT THE SEATTLE BEASTIE, please...hmm, on second thought maybe bring him with you. That would save Washie lots of energy!) Like good places to nap, that's the nice thing about love...you can never run out of it and there's always plenty more.
We'll love you endlessly for giving us a warm, safe home when we needed it the most.
We'll love you endlessly for giving us this warm, safe home until we need it no longer.
From the bottom of our little feline hearts,
Washington and Madison

Then, I usually like to get silly for a while. Extreme close up of my nose!
Then, it's time for my post-breakfast nap and I like to make myself a little Cat Cave:
Nope, it's Tony!
Maddie thinks she's above all these high jinx, but we all know better! But, even I have to admit, she does look pretty ok in this photo...for a sister, anyway:
Hugs and kisses,

Sometimes you just gotta agree to disagree. Tomato, tomahto, potato, potahto...
However, there is one other thing we agree on.

These silly humanz finally understood what you are supposed to do a fine, autumnal day. That is, find yourself a nice comfy spot in the sun and have a NAP!
Well, leave it to my dumb brother to hog all of the good spots:
That's the nice thing about laps, I say: there's always room for one more:

All I want to do is have some fun!
Here I am early this morning doing what I do best...playing! Because, if I'm nothing else, I'm a Kat who just know how to be silly, have a good cuddle, then get silly all over again!
Here I am, moving so fast that I'm just a blur!
Whoa, like dude, check out this trippy picture of me. It's like the camera is totally whacked out on catnip or something. Totally psychedelic, man. Welcome to my world.

We - and our Japanese cousins - took decidedly different takes on the theme!
Chococat, aka Tony's cuz, went the traditional route:
Tony, being the very silly cat he is, tried to steal Deer's spectacles to complete his very brainy look.
Maddie's Japanese relation, Hello Kitty, took Old School to mean something slightly different:
Groovy Hello Kitty seems to be channeling Janis Joplin or somebody! Maddie didn't need a single prop...she's naturally tie-dyed! 1967, here she comes!

This is how we chose to celebrate Labor.
Washie sunned his pretty pawz:
We practiced a new Synchronized Cat Napping routine:
That was kinda strenuous, so Maddie decided to go cuddle on Deer's feets. She loves to cuddle her feets!
Deer and Macks went on some crazy long bike ride this morning - over 40 miles, we heard them say. That's ok, we guess, since they seem to enjoy it but it meant that we didn't get our breakfast 'til 8:43 a.m. Maddie almost starved to death (she is, after all, just skin and bones) and Washie was this close to going mad, mad, mad! We figure that if they decide to pull that stunt again, they should at least make arrangements to have our breakfast catered. Again, people, priorities!

Macks and Deer thought they could pull the wool over our eyes by trying out a new type of litter made from wheat.
Sorry, but I don't think so.
Their first clue should have been the rather disturbing cat pictured on the package. Is this feline wearing color-enhanced contacts? Egads, that' s just not natural!
Since Macks and Deer are, generally, ok in our book (except, of course, when they put us in the portable prison and cart us to the scary vet), I decided to give this new stuff a try. But, I have to tell you, that it really started to bug me especially during the last few weeks. To show my obvious displeasure, I started to kick my litter EVERYWHERE, making not-so-small mountains of it on the floor. Macks and Deer aren't very bright. They didn't get it. So, I dropped being Passive-Agressive Cat and went blatant. Yesterday morning, I thought it would be great fun to use this as my "litter box".
They finally got the point.
By the end of the afternoon, we were back to corn. All's right with the world and my litter box.
Hugs and kisses, Washie
