we went to the parlor

I am introducing you to my lovely neighbor who lives by the kitty courts.  They know her as the Grand Queen of the Catnip Parlor.  I know her as the loveliest neighbor.  The cat boys like to visit her house frequently, checking inside and out for mice, moths, or squirrels.  She is happy that they chase the squirrels away from her plants, and for that they get treats plus they get to relax and nap on her sofa.
On that particular day, we think it was a few days ago, I took the boys to the parlor for some parloring activities.

Weed on the ground, they rolled...
and sniffed taking in all the pleasures all at once.
Refreshed the cat boys assumed the best posture of learning they could muster and reflected on


"Do not busy yourselves in your own concerns;
let your thoughts be fixed upon that which will rehabilitate the fortunes of mankind
and sanctify the hearts and souls of men."
(Gleanings 93)

The cat boys understood that the Queen of the Catnip Parlor had concerned herself with their well-being and they were much grateful for that. 

Cat boys sent pawfuls of kisses.  Enjoy this lovely April weekend!



  1. Your neighbor looks like a lovely lady. The fact that she's a cat person is wonderful.

    They say it takes a village. You're well on your way.

    Have a happy, pawful of love this weekend, dear friend.

  2. She is indeed. She was not a cat person, the boys stole her heart : )

    Wishing you a delightful and restful weekend too xx

  3. Those boys could make a cat allergy disappear!
    Wonderful photos Mona!

    XOXO to all of you.

  4. Dee...lovely to see you...and you are so right...I used to be very allergic until I fell in love with them. Love rules. I wish the photos were better. My camera is foggy. xoxo

  5. i love this queen of the cat parlor!!

    and that reading. so perfect.


  6. We should be so lucky to have a catnip queen nearby!
    That quote! I shall reflect on that too, like the cat boys. Now, if only I had weeds to roll around on.
    Pawfulls of smooches to all you beings on the patio!

  7. It´s very rare ( over here at least ) to have a neighbor, who´d let your cats/ dogs inside their house.
    But then again, your boys are ah so charming; how could anyone refuse their small visits!
    Btw., we now have a law over here, which allows pets to enter restaurants.
    The restaurants are free to do their final decision.Have a nice weekend!

  8. I suspect Cat Queen is a a true queen of everyone's hearts.

    lovely post.

  9. it's so nice to have kind neighbours who are cat people. Everyone shoul have at least one then the world would be such a better place! Happy weekend :-)

  10. The Grand Queen of the Catnip Parlor seems like a lovely person :0

  11. Hello, beautiful cat boys! you can do so many things, whilst laying down in the sun. The Grand Queen is lucky to have you two as her subjects, or should I say Royal Cat Boy Guards?

    Keep up the good work and don't let any mice or squirrels near the house!

    PS: I so wish I had you as my cat neighbours!



  12. Sure like the queen here at your scene, as your cats get to visit away.

  13. Anyone who loves my cats and dogs is a friend of mine This lady would be my best friend!
