Sunday Guest Star: Laila and Minchie

Angus and LailaWell this was harder. The Trout Talking Tabbies guessed and guessed. They guessed so much they confused the woman and she thought they finally found me but it was really Laila and Minchie AGAIN! They said, “Chey, are you in Bruges, Belgium? If so, could you bring back some Belgium chocolates?”

And I was there! Yep. Flynn had recommended I visit there. He figured since his Mum had just put that photo up on Facebook that it would be easy but very few cats go it, apparently because, well we’re cats and we find humans dull….

Now, my human needs to go get a brain so she doesn’t make silly mistakes like not getting where I am. And maybe have some of that chocolate I brought back from Belgium. After all, it’s not good for me…

 

Sunday Guest Star: Laila and Minchie

DSCF0001Well this one was a little confusing. Flynn and his family suggested I visit, no doubt thinking this was a perfect place for me to hang out! Merlin, Domino, and Odin came by and said, “I love the architecture of Russian Orthodox Churches. This looks like the Estonian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate.” And while that is in Talinn is the right place, that’s actually the name of the religion practiced at the church but not the name of the church itself. 

The name of the church where I am is, as Laila and Minchie said, “Chey, we hopped right up on our boogie mat and teleported over to Tallinn, Estonia and found you at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, an orthodox cathedral in the Tallinn Old Town. We have room for you on our mat to take you back home in time to celebrate the holiday weekend.”

So you learned a little about the Church itself as well as the religion practiced!

And the Furkids came by and said their family had been there but Laila and Minchie were fast that night! Now you may all go be jealous of Laila in her very cool box…

Sunday Guest Star: The Purrfections and friends

Thankful Thursday aug21Well just about everyone knew I was in the Katnip Lounge. Truffle and Brulee were the first to come by. And Maxwell, Faraday and Allie recognized Salem but not Rupert. We had to wait for Katie and Waffles to get that name, but then everyone came out of the woodwork and knew who it was!

Salem seemed to be a bit hit around the Lounge when the people came visiting. For all of that, the Baby was not to be outdone, yakking for the women there with my human. Imagine that! How intimate! But it was a good visit.  The Woman was of course looking admiringly at May Ling (after all, she can never resist a meeze) and she admired Scout up on his perch.

Now, having announced that I shall go nap with some silvervine that we still have from the visit. It is parceled out only at random times and I intend to take advantage before Ichiro hogs it all.

 

Sunday Guest Star: Maobert

mao-yoda-petcoSo, surprisingly Mao found me this week. I don’t know what he was doing in Smartypants rather than Crankypants but he was.

Mao said, “Black Angel in Tallinn, Estonia”

And then the Furkids came by and said, “We agree with Maobert! It’s the Black Angel. Here’s what we found out about it: the Russalka Memorial is a bronze monument sculpted by Amandus Adamson, erected on 7 September 1902 in Kadriorg, Tallinn, to mark the ninth anniversary of the sinking of the Russian warship Rusalka, or “Mermaid”, which sank en route to Finland in 1893.

The monument depicts an angel holding an Orthodox cross towards the assumed direction of the shipwreck. The model for the angel was the sculptor’s housekeeper Juliana Rootsi, whose grandson is the politician Tiit Made.

The Florida Furkids”

Boy, aren’t they smart!

Mao, of course, thought the Furkids were showing off.  We think they were great! And we must thank Flynn and his mum for sharing this great photo with us!

Sunday Guest Star: Merlin, Domino, Odin and Angel Gris Gris

IMG_4590-e1407385679674Well I wasn’t gone long. In fact, I didn’t even have time to explore which room I wanted fishy flakes in when the gang at Cat Wisdom came by and found me. Merlin, Domino, Odin and Angel Gris Gris said, “Oh that’s familiar from the Book! Mercer Williams house in Savannah, Georgia.”

And they were right. In case you were wondering what I was doing there, the Purrfection’s suggested it. So I went, as I often do. I really have to thank their Mom for thinking of me whenever she is out and about and finding interesting places for me to go! Flynn’s mom does that too! In fact, they just might be better than my human about that…

They asked if anyone knew why the light in the front room was turned on, but we don’t know so we hope that Truffle and Brulee will come by and enlighten us! (HA HA HA!!!)

 

 

Sunday Guest Star

DSCF0035Once again, I was hardly lost at all when Laila and Minchie came by and said, “Chey, you are in Punxsutawney, PA and this is “The Wizard of the Weather” statue, located next to the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center.”

The Woman was lucky to know I was in Punxsutawney PA, which the Male insisted they visit when they were in Pennsylvania.  She liked this statue because it looked like a Harry Potter Groundhog. They had groundhogs all over town dressed up the way they have bears in Hendersonville and some places have cows or eggs or whatever.

At any rate, I don’t have to stay here any longer so I think I’ll head on home, probably through Chicago if Laila and Minchie don’t mind…

 

Sunday Guest Star: The Chans

P7180042Well as I was at that super looking place, the Chans came by and said, “You are at the Palais des Papes in Avignon. Chey! since you’re in France, we hope you’re coming to visit us!” And they of course, were correct.

Flynn said, “The Chans were quick to find you Chey. If you are going to get lost, what better place than a palace!” And of course it was all his idea (and photo) for me to get lost there! So we must thank him for coming over and finding this excellent place for a party.

Now, for a bit of wine, a bit of cheese and a bit of snuggling on Sunday with my good friends!

Sunday Guest Star: Ayla, Iza and Marley

IMG_3366Well this was surprisingly easy. I was barely able to start looking for a large electrical outlet when Ayla, Iza and Marley came by and said, “Are you at the Philadelphia Museum of Art?”

And then Truffle and Brulee said, “Here’s a little more information about the statue: Giant Three-Way Plug (Cube Tap)

Is this enough to rescue you Chey???”

And now, thanks to Cory we have snack and Brian put in his usual witty response by saying, “We must put a plug in for the smart ones!” I just hope this one is big enough!

Sunday Guest Star: Mom Nancy and Truffle and Brulee

LookoutWell this was a hard post to write, not because it was hard to figure out who found me first but my blog has moved hosts and things are resolving in strange and odd ways. The Male had it on his computer last night and all was not well but the Woman figured out what was wrong and fixed it, so then all WAS well. However, although they both link from the same internet connection and router, she could not see the site (new without a few things she put up for herself to see) on her computer. And her phone just said nothing was to be found at all…

While this is not abnormal for changeovers, it was strange that two people on the same connection could get two different sites. Hopefully this will all be resolved by Monday night, at least we hope so!

So anyway, now that you’ve found me online, where was I over the holiday?

“I think this is the Tesla statue on Goat Island, Niagara Falls Park. Happy Independence Day, Chey!” which was what Mom Nancy said.

Truffle and Brulee said only moments later, “We’ll add that it’s Nicola Tesla monument on the American side of Niagara Falls. It’s on Goat Island, just upriver from Horseshoe Falls, in front of the entrance arch of the old Niagara Falls power plant that Nikola Tesla helped to build in 1895, the first big hydroelectric plant in the world.”

And wow! They were right too! And of course, the Meezer’s knew where I was but you know how much trouble they have with their help…

Sunday Guest Star: Truffle and Brulee

box dayTruffle and Brulee sure know their cows! They immediately knew where I was.

They said, “You’re visiting the Jell-O Museum in the small town of LeRoy in western New York.” The immediately added, “And that’s the famous Jell-O Cow!”

It was good that they said that so quickly. Benjamin Fuzz was right behind them.

Even The Meezers (who insist they are too stupid for this game) said, “we KNEW that one – it’s very close to our howse! Darn. The mom is too lazy to get to your post when it’s posted. Stoopid the mom.” So I guess where we know where Billy runs when he gets out of the house then?

And Brian said, “Holy cow are they smart!” And we had to giggle a little at that and wonder if there is a Jello Church and if that’s then really a Holy Cow!
