when she’s not sleeping

She’s sitting at this window.  All the time.  Watching the birds.

As spring has sprung, there have been a lot of birds fluttering around. The girls’ new favorite thing to do is spend hours sitting in the window sills and chattering at them. Even better, when we have the windows open, they love the fresh air and listening to the birds.

Then at night, Margot likes to sit in the window sill and bat at the moon. She’s a black cat. It’s her calling.

lounging

Maeby demonstrates how to properly lounge in her scratch lounge. Of all the fluffy soft places to sleep in the house, we most often find her snoozing in this cardboard box.

maeby get down!

We have basically one rule for the cats: no jumping on the countertops or kitchen table. They don’t seem to obey this rule as it’s pretty hard to enforce when we’re gone all day. And I come home to find little paw prints on the stove. Maeby is usually the culprit. They like looking out the windows and chattering at the birds. Usually if we just approach them they get down.

So can you spot what is wrong with this picture?

That day, Maeby decided to be a little more rebellious and not jump down when I approached her.

“What? I’m not doing anything wrong am I?”

Maeby

Ok, so maybe I’ll try yelling and swatting at her. Surely, that will get her down.

Nope. She ain’t scared of nobody. Stubborn-headed ninny muggins.

As always, Margot dominates the new toys. When Maeby tries to get close, that’s when the fun goes downhill real fast. Margot’s not so good at sharing.
