What would you do for a klondike bar?

If you were to ask that question from cat boys, properly phrased of course, "What would you do for a tuna pie?", you just might get an answer such as "I'd dance for you". However, I have no such luck! Cat boys do what they want and when they want to do it.

I am only asking them to give me their undivided attention and I am not advancing very far.

We went to our humble back yard that is starting to look more humble each day due to either lazy and/or very unknowledgeable gardeners. I drew the attention of the cat boys to the tree top above where a plump bird of some sort was singing away knowing full well that no cat would manage to go way up that tree.
My furry companions were delighted!
Augustus, Mr Sweet Pants was gauging the heights
while Ollie, Mr Puffy Pants, had love written all over his face!
To make a short story even shorter, this is what transpired when I asked the cats to sit down for their back yard reflective reading.

MrSweetPants, MSP, was thinking about it while MrPuffyPants, MPP was gazing away.
Then I had the attention of MPP but not MSP.
Then I had MSP but MPP was occupied with his paw licking routine.
Then I lost them both to some thought or sight.
Then they were talking amongst themselves pondering how much longer they should exercise their independence!
MPP was finally ready, he remembered who had the can opener for the can of tuna...while MSP remained certain that he could bend my will with his cuteness!
And finally I had the two precious ones, MrSweetPants and MrPuffyPants, ready on their own time, and not one second sooner!
We reflected on:

"A drop of the billowing ocean of His endless mercy hath adorned all creation with the ornament of existence, and a breath wafted from His peerless Paradise hath invested all beings with the robe of His sanctity and glory. A sprinkling from the unfathomed deep of His sovereign and all-pervasive Will hath, out of utter nothingness, called into being a creation which is infinite in its range and deathless in its duration. The wonders of His bounty can never cease, and the stream of His merciful grace can never be arrested. The process of His creation hath had no beginning, and can have no end." Gleanings

Cat boys feeling infinite in their range made many kisses and blew them in the air for you...wishing you a happy January again!



  1. What would I do? Wow, probably something unexpected, like mow the lawn or do the dishes;)

  5. Yes, cats are ready at precicely their own time and not s moment sooner.
    My Rufus doesn't care for tuna though, he's strange.

  6. coffeeaddict- I love the name Rufus : ) Ours don't like chicken but they love tuna and it better be human tuna xx

  7. OK.
    you're probably going to think i'm strange.

    layer'd with cornbread and cheese and some tomatoes and onions.
