Meow Like a Pirate!

Ahoy Mateys! It be MEOW like a PIRATE day! I, Magnificent Millie, be mer-owwwin' since dawn. I been swillin me grog and avasting me timbers. I'll be meowin' pirate style and wrestlin' treats outta dem crinkly bags. I even be stealin' my Mom's cheese...

See, I tolja!

I tooka quizz and it says my name oughta be DREAD PIRATE RACKHAM, but I think it oughta be DREAD PIRATE MAGNIFICENT MILLIE RACKHAM.

Yer can try fer yerself.  ARRRR!


    My pirate name is:


    Dread Pirate  Rackham   


    Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate.    Arr!

Truther Thursday

Oh my Bast! The wall of boxes gets bigger every day.  This is what it looked like about ten days ago.

and this is what the same corner looks like today.

Here is the other side...

Do not bother trying to find me in these photos. I am very well hidden. (Heh. Mom doesn't know it, but I am under one of the new chairs in the living room.)

Mom had a long fevver duster on a stick that was resting on the top of a box. I was playing with it, and now it has fallen behind the stack where Mom can't reach it. Oh well. (Double Heh.)

I am practicing being a Pirate, climbing on the stack of boxes, protecting my turf. Pirate Day is tomorrow.  Arrrr!

Ayla, Iza and Marley, "TOL" means "Top Of Load." It's for extra fragile stuff that has to be on the top of any stack.

Wacky Wednesday

 The studio is filled with boxes. They are stacked in front of the desk and the bookcase and the bureau. Mom can't get back there.
But I can!

Tuxie Tuesday

I really like this spinning red chair. I can climb up and jump onto my kitty condo, and I can cuddle up next to Mom if she scootches over.

Millie Monday

I am enjoying my nap.

on the kitty bed MomBean made for me a very long time ago. It remains one of my all time favorite napping spots.

Mom's new bed? Yeah, that's nice too.

(It was pretty funny. Mom was washing the dinner dishes, and she was putting a big pot away, and realized she had taken down the hook she usually hangs it on!!  Ha ha.)

So you all know that Mom was getting a new bed delivered yesterday. She was furry excited. I  thought it was going to be a good day, but all of a sudden it got very, Very, VERY bad.

I was sitting next to Mom and getting scritches when all of a sudden she picked me up and put me in the cage for no good reason.

then she left me there. I was stuck in the cage all day while Mom waited for the sleepy guys.

 Four very long hours later the guys came and took the old bed away.

Mom dragged the rug sucking monster around.

The guys put the new bed in the hallway. One of them put the new bed frame together.

And then presto, the new bed was in place. The sleepy guys left and Mom -finally- let me out of the cage.
Mom put the sheets and blankets and quilts on the bed. Hmm. Maybe she needs to get a bigger quilt because this one doesn't cover the new mattress.

Mom is furry excited to sleep on the new bed. Me, not so much. The new bed has a Tempur, and I am not going to sleep on an angry bed.

The Last Time

Tonight is the last time Mom and I will sleep on this bed.
 Tomorrow the sleepy guys will be bringing a new one, and Mom is furry excited.

Mom has cleared out the hallway.

and moved stuff around so the guys will have room to man-oo-ver the new bed into the bedroom.

and she's... WAIT A MINUTE...

WHAT'S THAT DOING IN THERE??  What does the cage have anything to do with getting a new bed?

Freaky Friday

Dear Megan, I most certainly do NOT nap on the same chair all day long. I generally rotate my napping spots during the day, but Mom doesn't always get photos.

The house is looking kinda empty. Every night after dinner, Mom puts stuff in boxes. As you can see she has been packing up kitchen stuff. I'm glad that Mom has not packed any of my napping spots. In fact, I heard her talking to our M-word coordinator that my kitty condo has to be the LAST thing on the truck so it can be the FIRST thing set in place at our house.

Now THAT's cool.

Thinking Thursday

I'm thinking I had something to say in today's post, but I forgot what it was.

 Oh yeah. Mom's sewing room is filling up with boxes.

Meow Like a Pirate!

AHOY!  It be meow like a Pirate Day and I be m-rowwing and a-vasting like a real pirate of ta sea.

Arrr! I  be climbin' my tower o' boxes and chasin' the fake mice and makin' 'em walk da plank.

I be eatin' summa Ma's cheese that I hooked away from 'er with my trusty claw. Arrr!

Tuxie Tuesday

Mom's going back to her day hunting gig after two weeks of stay-cation. She's been making a mess of everything, moving stuff around and interrupting my naps. I'm gonna be glad to have the place to myself for a bit.

Evil Intruder

Lookit!  It's an evil intruder, a vishus wild turkey, eating the seeds at the new neighborhood. Mom saw three of them yesterday afternoon. Mom says this vishus turkey is not a bird to be trifled with. She says they're stupid, but they are also BIG and MEAN.


In other boring news, Mom has packed most of the books and is working on the stuff in her sewing studio. She has MASSES of stuff in there.

Box Overload

Lookit the two empty bookcases.

See this big stack of boxes?

They are filled with the stuff that used to be on the bookcases.  Mom has more books to pack, and she can't wait until they are all done. She says they take up more space than they should.

I think she means the boxes get TOO heavy TOO fast and she has to use more boxes. She has two more bookcases to pack and she says "Enough already!"

I have been sleeping under the table in the other room where I can watch but stay hidden.
