Today (the 22nd), we were rudely awakened by a noisy, frenzied dog-guy!
It was still early,and the peeps were still all in their nests, and the doors were locked, which means that dog-guy couldn't go through his doggy doors...so he barked and barked and growled and made way too much noise...he needs to be taught not to disturb the peace of us kitties.
Since he would not stop with the noise, he also woke the peeps up, and they finally let him go outside, where he continued to bark his head off, but somehow when he returned indoors his head was back on, MOL!
The reason he was such a nuisance was hot air balloons!
A huge one was hovering right above the ground in the field across from or den, and it was getting ready to land. It made its own noise.And we didn't care fur that either, maybe dog-guy was trying to rid us of that thing...
There was another one flying over our den, it was from the U of M. it had a huge blue 'M' on it..'GO BLUE'!
Well eventually all was quiet, and dog-guy came inside to sleep, he was tired from all that early AM activity, MOL!
Then after a while meowmy baked a cake, and decorated it...to give to unfurbro, who had his birthday, on the 22nd. Two decades already!
Well, they indulged themselves, and then all was furry quiet...we had the sunpuddles to ourselves, and dog-guy was in the bsack porch, with his open doggy door, so he could come and go at will, and open windows to enjoy the fresh air, and he was also on guard duty...for almost 12 hours. Woiw!
The unfurmilt went to Ann Arbor, and met up with the other unfurbro. They soon left there and went to have a late lunch, and from there they went to the Motor City...aka Detroit.
There was a contest there between some big orange cats with black stripes, and some large noisy blue and white burds.
This contest was being watched by some 37,000 spectators who meowmy said made a lot more noise than those two teams of contestants combined. We think we are glad we stayed home...though it might have been a lot of fun to see some big cats stalking burds...
Meowmy told us that the big cats won this contest against the burds...yeah!
Tigers 3 - Blue Jays 2
Meowmy felt a bit strange rooting for cats, over helpless burds...MOL...since those burds came from Toronto, and she is a Canadian...sigh...but she felt it was necessary to support her furmily who consider themselves true fans of those big orange Tigers!
Well, they came home at 130 AM!! So furry late!
Sorry is we didn't get to snag her to do our catretarial duties fur Catsterland kitty-furends, but we hope that if you need one in the future, she will be there fur us to mew at to do her slave duties!!
Now we need to go and catch up on our beauty snoozes..or are they handsome naps??
Does burds yous can beats up all yous wants... but nots my burds please... Tigger used to love to watch baseball on tv.. and loved his Orioles
Yes, We know, Blizz...pawppy's growlmy camem from near Baltimore, she was an avid fan!
I'm always for cats beating birds!
Wow, all kinds of Michiganie things! Was that the Jackson Balloon Fest? There's also one in Howell which our Mom has gone too a few times. Mom used to see those balloons when she lived with my grandpawrents. Fun that your unfurmily came to Ann Arbor where we live! And they got to watch the Big Cats at Tiger stadium! How pawsome. Sounds like a purrfectly wonderfur day! Happy Birthday to the unfurbro (we're almost the same age).
Thanks for the greetings to unfurbro, we shall pass them along.
Nope, that was a biannual international balloon fest that is held right here in Battle Creek, at Kellogg Community College and surrounding open areas, it is way different and less commercial than the annual balloon/ air show held at our airport evfurry year...I think tomorrow they have their last day of activities, and all of it is free excepting food concessions, MOL!
Too bad they lost tonight, those Tigers, sigh...maybe tomorrow!
Oh, my typist got the cities mixed up. Mom thought about that after we wrote it. That's interesting that there is a smaller balloon fest there in Battle Creek along with the larger one. We also called Comerica Park by the older name, Tiger Stadium. Off day I guess. We'll be keeping an eye on those big cats! Have a nice Sunday!
Yes they did win...Go Tigers!
We think they sort of use those stadium names interchangeably...Commerica Park is the 'official' name, and Tiger stadium is the pet name, MOL!
We were told that if meowmy thought that place was large, she should go to 'The Big House' and see that place,
MOL! It holds more peeps than the official population of Battle Creek...imagine that!
