About Our Pet Meme

I saw this meme on The Meezer's blog and decided to get Bob to do it.

The rules are;

a) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos,
b) post 10 facts about yourself and NO photos, or
c) post a childhood picture of yourself.

This is a picture of Bob when he was 7 years old.

1. Bob is his families genealogist and he once made ancestry books for his family as Christmas presents.

2. Bob got some old family pictures from his Mom and taught himself to restore them.

3. Bob's Mom had alzimers when she gave him the pictures and she quickly declined soon afterward and could not remember who was in the pictures, so he has no idea who more than half of the people in the pictures are.

4. When Bob was little his Dad worked at LaGuardia Airport in NY and he used to take Bob up on helicopter rides that went over the twin towers while they were being built.

5. Bob worked at a photo-lab for 16 1/2 years before digital cameras took over and the lab closed down.

6. Bob bought a empty spice rack and filled all the jars with different coffee beans. The jars each hold enough beans for 2 cups of coffee which is all he drinks in a day any more, so they are perfect sized.

7. Bob is a Star Trek fan, but he only like the old series and The Next Generation. He said the others are good Sci-fi, but not real Star Trek.

8. Bob loves movies with vampires and werewolves. He became hooks on them watching the original Dark Shadows.

9. Bob also loves things that have to do with Arthurian legend, but he doesn't like the new Merlin series because they just took the character names and some basic information about them and through everything else out the window. For starters; Merlin was not Arthurs page, and Arthur was not raised by Uther.

10. Bob is hooked on a game called City of Heroes. He also plays City of Villains when his account is active, but he has been playing free trails since December because the $46 every 3 months is better spent on bills until he manages to find a solid job again.

Early Rising Pets

This morning Monika got up early and I decided I was going to jump up on to the bed and nap with Bob, but when I got in there he was already sitting up and said it was treat time. Then he told me I could nap with him later when he went back to sleep after Monika went to work.

Spoiled Queen

Queen Munchkin here;

I have claimed Bob's lap and I am making him keep his hands busy petting me so it is hard for him to type this for me. I'm currently getting ear rubs and pets at the same time. I'm in kitty heaven.

*loud purrs*

Tired Pet

Last night Bob worked late and then he had to get up early to go drive cars this morning, so I let him keep what little awakeness he had to drive with.

Happy Cats

The A/C works again!!!!!!!!!

It took about 5 hours for the temp in here to get back down to 76, but it's finally nice in here.

Roasting Kitties

Our A/C broke yesterday morning. A guy was supposed to come fix it yesterday afternoon, but his truck broke, so he is coming this afternoon. In the mean time it has not been below 80 degrees in the house since about 7am yesterday. We have all the ceiling fans on and a lot of the windows open, but I miss my cold air.

New Alarm

This morning King Obsidian and I were laying in the room while Bob was sleeping. We were trying to be patient and let him sleep longer before we woke him up for treats. Then all of a sudden Monika sneezed real loud and he woke up and said something about a goose in tights. Afterward instead of going back to sleep he gave us both cuddles and said; "Let's go get treats." Thanks Monika!

New Cousin Kitty

Bob's sister just sent him pictures of her new kitty. Her name is Sammie and she looks like a real sweety.

Queen's Morning Routine

Queen Munchkin here;

Monika got up early to take her meds that she has to have half an hour before she eats and then went back to bed. I realized I was running late getting my under cover attentions between her and Bob so I came running in, jumped onto the foot of the bed and ran right up beteen them to ask Bob to lift the covers for me. I'm glad I have him so well trained. My day would have been ruined if I didn't get my special morning attentions.

July 22, 2009


I got early rockies with Monika this morning. She usually doesn't take me into her lap on the recliner for rockies until she sits to watch TV at night.

Spoiled Queen

Queen Munchkin here;

Once again, I have claimed Bob's lap for attentions this morning. I love it when he gives me ear rubs and cuddles.

Duck Weather

The weather is turning yucky here again. It has been thunder and raining every night and it is supposed to rain off and on all day today. Bob calls it duck weather, because the ducks are the only ones that enjoy it.

Go Away Bad Luck!!!

Bob is going to try to get extra work at another Pizza Hut. He's not making enough to help make ends meet at the one he is at now, and our power may be off for a few days because of it. We keep praying for him to find a real full time job, but so far he has had no luck.

1% Milk Fat???

King Obsidian here;

Bob and Monika switched from buying regular milk to buying the 1% fat stuff. I sniffed Bob's cereal bowl when he put it down, but I don't think I want to try it. I'll let Queen Munchkin try it first, and if she survives it I'll think about trying it.

About Last Night

Last night Bob came out of the computer room to watch TV with Monika, and I jumped onto the couch and laid with him. Monika said I am turning into a Daddy's boy on her.

July 16, 2009

Home With Bob

Bob got up shortly after Monika this morning and gave us our treats. Then after she went to work he went back to bed and we all took a nap with him. When he got up he told us he would come back and nap with us some more after lunch. I think we all have been training him well.

Sneaky King

King Obsidian here;

I decided to play the hidy game with Bob this morning and I think I did pretty good. He said he was going to have to go find me and bring me to his cereal bowl for some milk, and before he got off his computer chair I walked up to the bowl.

Sorry Cuddles

Queen Munchkin here;

Bob has been making up for not saying; "Good-bye." by giving me bunches of extra cuddles. He still goes to work though. I guess I will just have to compensate by making him give me even more cuddles.


July 13, 2009

Missing Bob

Queen Munchkin here;

Yesterday when Bob left for work, he forgot to say good-bye to all of us. I went to the door that goes into the garage and cried for him to come back, but he didn't hear me. Then at about 8 I cried some more because he wasn't home yet.


July 12, 2009

Belly Psyche

This morning I laid out with a great belly toll up for Bob to see and as soon as he got up to come rub my belly I rolled back over. He told me I had to give him back his belly toll because he didn't get to pay it yet, then he rolled me on my back and gave me bunches of belly rubs and pets.


July 11, 2009

Nature Watching

I heard a bird outside the computer room window, but the blinds were down, so I asked Bob to pull them up for me. He got them up just in time for me to see the bird disappear around the front of the house. I'm laying here patiently waiting for it to return now. Or at least for a lizard to show up on the window.

Ginger Me

This is a copy of my old profile pic where Bob turned me into a ginger kitty. I told Millie about it in a responce to her post this morning. I thought I had posted about it, but could not find the post to give her the address, so I am posting it now. Maybe Boots posted it. I'll have to ask her.

July 09, 2009

Another Early Morning

Bob's up early to go to Labor Ready again this morning. Monika isn't happy because she has to get up to drop him off, but is at a premium these days.

July 08, 2009

Humans & Water Torture

Bob had to get up early to go drive today, so I held off posting until now although he did help me read all my friends blogs this morning. When he got home I was taking my nap, so he napped too so as not to wake me and the other kitties, then after we got up he played chase with me before he went into the water torture chamber. I think humans are crazy going in them things all the time, but they seem to like them. Go figure!

My Special Day

Thank you The Meezers and Angel and Kirby. for remembering my birthday/gotcha day. I was soo sleepy this morning that I forgot all about it.


Busy Pet

Bob worked a little late last night, but he is still going driving this morning. I'm guessing that he will take a nice long nap when he gets home though.

July 06, 2009

Stay Home Pet

Monika was planning on going back to work to today, even though she isn't due back until Wednesday. That all changed though when she got up this morning. She headed toward the kitchen to make her breakfast, then stopped and said; "I don't feel like going to work today." Bob just replied; "So don't." and it was settled. Now we get to have another whole day with her home.


July 05, 2009

Monika's Home

Monika came home early yesterday and Bob turned out not having to go to work, so we had them both here to keep us calm during the pops and bangs.


Of course we are all still acting a little mad at Monika for going away, but we'll get over it.


July 04, 2009

Scary Night

I'm not too sure I like this Fourth of July thing. We have been hearing the loud pops and bangs off and on for the past couple of days and Bob says it will be much worse tonight. What makes it even worse is that he will be at work, so we wont have anyone to run to when we are scared. Does anyone have a house that will be nice and quiet that we can teleport to until he gets home?


July 03, 2009

Naps Are Contagious

Everyone at KC's is taking naps today. Looks like a good idea. I think we'll join them.

July 02, 2009

Busy Pet

Bob got to drive yesterday, then he came home, slept a couple of hours, and went to make pizzas. I'm not to sure I like him working two jobs in one day.


July 01, 2009

Good Luck Bob

Bob didn't get to drive yesterday, but he is going to try again this morning. Hope he has better luck today.
