Easy Like Sunday

A week or so ago, we had some real nice temperatures and it was sunny so the porch warmed up a lot and we were all able to sit out there and relax. I sure miss that during the cold winter (so does Mom and the Guy too). I just sorta napped the afternoon away on the porch feeling the warm sunshine on my back. It felt soooooooo goooooood!

Some have made comments about Mom keeping chocolate goodies on a shelf in the basement with the other stored food. Well, Mom has real good self control and she just knows if she gave in and ate all those chocolate goodies right away, she'd end up gaining too much weight so she tries real hard to keep those urges in check. She gets a few out of the box and takes them upstairs and puts them in the big white cold box. She says she likes them better when they're cold but not frozen. Then she eats them before she goes back for more.

The Guy was a bit elated this morning cuz he caught one of the mouse culprits. I'm afraid it was a death sentence for the critter too, the trap did it's dirty deed. But, Mom says she hopes no more delicious peanut butter cups will be wasted on the mouse population. The guy reset the traps just in case, though. You never know when there's more mice hanging around. I sure wish I could have caught that mouse. I haven't had a warm meat meal in a very long time. I always liked the head best too. I used to woof that down right away and then leave the rest for Mom in case she wanted to just roast it for dinner.

Our Mom is going crazy over that photo of you, Rusty! You do look really handsome:) We're happy that the mousie won't be stealing from your Mom anymore!

Brian said...

Yep, that sun sure feels good! It is so nice you save some mousie for your Mom!!!

Rusty, our mom says you just grossed her out about the head thing. Good job...we like grossing out mom...

Kea said...

You are so gorgeous, Rusty, you take our breath away!

Your mom has impressive self-control, our mom should take a lesson from her.

And she's not sure what to say about the poor dead mousie...We all like mousies, of course, even Mom, but she prefers hers alive and well and certainly not in the house!

Kea said...

Rusty, we hope you know that wasn't a criticism of trapping the mice! Just that dead mice kinda gross mom out...and she does feel badly for the poor little mice too. But of course no one wants them inside the house, that's not good.

Nicki caught a mouse back in November, but Mom rescued him and put him in a safe place, she hoped. She wouldn't mind if we ate them, but we don't, we just toy with them and mom thinks that's cruel. But eating fresh, raw meat is what Cats do--or used to do. :-)

Rusty
What a great picture of you!
All in a warm sunpuddle, I know you were loving it. Soon we hope it will be spring, we were able to get out just a little today as the sun was out and it was in the 60's here. It won't be long before it'll be all warm all the time here.

Your mum has great will power. Our mum would be up and down to that basement until all the chocolate had gone. On second thoughts, she would have brought all the chocolate up with her the first time. I caught a mousie today on my post and nommed it. It was very tasty.

You look so comfy on the porch in the sun. We hope the sin comes back soon.

I agree with Eric and Flynn. My mom would have all the chocolate upstairs! She just bought a few packages of the Reeses White Chocolate eggs!

Our mummy is loving that photo of you Rusty, you look SO cute! You have a very wise mummy to keep chocolate downstairs.
