Monday Mischief – How to Bug Big Brother!

Yes, we’ve ascertained that Sabre is fairly fond of little Pixels.  However, no matter how cute you may be, there are certain sibling duties which need to be performed.  Annoying big brother is a vital skill to acquire.    

“Big Brother Bug” is a great game and crucial to boredom avoidance.  It is particularly effective if you can find Big Brother already ensconced in a nice, deep slumber.

Step 1 – Pat him on the head to wake him up

Step 2 – Pretend it wasn’t you.  Try to embellish your face with the most innocent of expressions whilst looking the other way.

Step 3– Give his toes a good sniff.  If nothing else, the tickle of your whiskers should help wake him.

Step 4– Get distracted by his now wonderfully swishing tail

Step 5 – Do the unthinkable.  Sniffing his…um…nether regions is sure to get his attention

Step 6 – Receive a good clobbering for that gesture

Get something of a clobbering for that

Step 7 – Go in for the neck (I’m sure you’ve seen your big Lion cousins using that tactic to great effect)

Go for the neck

Step 8 – Break free of the inevitable wrestle hold (Mommy Lions never explained that consequence on Animal Planet).

Step 9 – Great, now you’ve got his attention and can settle in for the ultimate huggle bunnie sleep with big brother.

Great now you've got his attention

Miracles Never Cease!

Our dear, beloved postal service has been on strike (who’d have guessed) for the last couple of months (or years, considering how efficient they are).  As such, no-one in the area has any idea what mail they might be missing. 

Now, on an average day, I can’t say I’m all that unhappy.  Most mail is either utterly boring or terrifying.  However, every now and then, there’s something exciting.  I remain clueless as to anything good that may have been sent but for one exception.

Imagination Is Spicy had a competition on their site so, of course, I had to enter.  And I WON!  I didn’t get the answer right but, then again, nor did anybody else, so we ended up in a hat.  Long Life was drawn!  Oh, the excitement of it all.  Now that, in itself, is something of a miracle but the fact that the prize actually arrived, is the greatest miracle of my time!

Our prize came beautifully wrapped and presented:

It could hardly be more appropriate, as it included a MOR Tin-Boxed Soapette and Handcream with Lychee (or Litchi as we would spell it here) flower fragrance.  Together with a beautifully hand stitched heart (or favourite) brooch.

MOR Lychee Flower

Litchi (the dog, not the fruit) is delighted!  She believes it was created especially for her.  She will not be getting to use it!

I love that the tin is collectable and has a cute little hinged lid.  Just precious.

And, as with all things that I love, it even gave me a giggle.  The soap tin comes with instructions.  Maybe they’re concerned that, here in deepest, darkest Africa, we may not know how to use it.

Directions:

“Add water and massage onto body for a creamy lather.  Rinse thoroughly with water”

Thanks Imagination Is Spicy!  I love the gifts.  I love their fragrance and I always love a good laugh.

Silly Sleep Sunday

I had no intention of posting today.

Spring will be on it’s way to the northern hemisphere shortly, which means Autumn will set in here.  In the meantime, we have beautiful, sunny, warm weather.  I should be out there.

Pixels, however, always changes things up.  I figured I could read a few posts quickly.  I look up to find her sleeping on my desk, like this:

Don't all cats sleep this way?

It's a fabulous way to keep your ears warm whilst sleeping

PS – Mom is very proud of herself for having managed Easter Egg style crops on these photos.  Baby steps.  We’ll get the hang of it all eventually.

Silly Sit Saturday

Adopt your next furry friend and you too could be subjected to idiotic antics

Laugh not at my unique sitting position

If you’re anything like my Mother, then laughter at my unique sitting style is currently ensuing.

Surely this is how all cats sit

I have no idea why.  I think this is a perfectly normal way to sit.  I’ve seen the humans do it before!

It’s Good To Have Friends In High Places

Remember poor Sabre, all ready for an outstanding camping trip with Sammy and his friends?  He was stuck at home due to his dim-witted, excuse-filled Mom.  Well, the Stupendous Sammy came to the rescue!

Being unbelievably well connected, Sammy organised for the FBI (Feline Bureau of Investigations) to send their Jet, normally reserved for VIPs (Very Important Pussies), to collect Sabre and fly him directly to the camp site.

Not only that, but he also made sure there was a professional photographer on board, who sent Mom proof that little Baby Sabre was, indeed, in extremely good paws.

Sammy pulled out all the stops on this one!

Just look what Sammy did.   An FBI Jet, filled with food, toys, tents and pretty much anything any VIP camper could ever hope for.

Thanks Sammy for a terrific time.

Mothers can be so cruel to their babies

Baby Sabre is devastated.  Sammy is throwing an awesome camping party, including forests and beaches and all our bloggy friends.  Mom, being the slightly challenged blonde that she is, didn’t get anything organised in time for Sabre to join in the fun.

All dressed up and nowhere to go!

All dressed up and nowhere to go!

Here he sits, all ready to go but too late to catch the transport.  He has his drinks, his lollies, his beach ball and even organised for the sun to come out (for which, of course, as a responsible baby, he is wearing a protective hat).

How absurd is it, that Mom cannot find photo editing software she can use on her PC but found something on her phone?

Vital Cadillac Maintenance – Step 1

If you read Your Step by Step guide to gaining a Cadillac, then you should now feel confident about acquiring your reasonably priced, slightly less than new, outstandingly upholstered Cadillac.  If not, please refer back.  

Remember, you can’t maintain a Cadillac if you don’t Have a Cadillac.

Now, we all know to wash and clean the outside of our Cadillac.  A shiny exterior will gain the attention one is seeking.  However, the longevity of your Cadillac will be greatly improved if you also consider the maintenance of the interior.

Step 1 for good interior maintenance:

Especially during the early days, a bit of “spit and polish” is going to be necessary.  In order to acquire the required spit, you could throw hard earned cash away, purchasing items or, if you are feeling frugal, you can simply use wobbly bits from a slightly older model.

Diagrammatic representation of Frugal Interior Maintenance is provided below:

 

Allow new Cadillac to chew on the ear of marginally older model, thereby maintaining good spit and polish interior maintenance

Allow new Cadillac to chew on the ear of marginally older model, thereby maintaining good “spit and polish” interior

What are you waiting for?  Rush on over to your nearest “Cadillac Supplier” (or Rescue Shelter) to gain yourself the latest high end model.

Legless! Or maybe, one too many?

One of my blog pals, the Colonialist to be exact, noted that Pixels appears to have an extra front leg.

Can you spot my 3rd leg?

Bet you can’t do that for Mischief Monday!!

PS – It’s just my chest colouring, I promise.

You have got to be kidding me?  I have only one answer

I laugh at you!!

I laugh at you!!

Really Mom, you do make me laugh.  I’m staying right here:

No way Mom - It's Sunday, the day of Rest!

No way Mom – It’s Sunday, the day of Rest!

Consider adopting your next pet and you too can relinquish your bed to a love bug like this.
