That's what I want to know. We have this nest with barn swallows on the underside of our patio roof. And the little Appurrtizers have been in there at least since July 4th and they're still not ready :(
Shouldn't they be ripe soon? I want to try one when it's done. Mom is getting tired of them too because they drop things and Mom has to clean it up. We have FOUR of the wonderful little birdies. First I thought there's only two but Mom saw four. How much longer do I have to wait?
I go out in my harness almost every day to check. Mom steers me away from the nest but if we get too close Mamma and Papa bird dive-bomb us. Not very friendly those birds. The other evening I was out in my harness and suddenly something hissed in front of me and then water started spraying. I tried to run away but Mom held on to the leash. Then she carried me away to the other side of the building. Wow, that was scary. I almost got my fur wet. Mom said they have changed the times when the sprinklers come on.
Gotta go out and check on my birds now. Happy Sunday to you all. I hope you have your own birdies ripening in your garden.

Yesterday a big envelope arrived. Mom said it's for me. But how can my border plus Victoria Rose the Border Terrier fit in that small envelope? (Pipo thinks I'm getting a Border Terrier, not a Border Collie) Well, there was indeed a sage border in there but it's a bit smaller then I had imagined. Seems that Mom thinks 20 x 20 is enough territory for me. Oh well.
I got a neat Tranquility Blanket in Victorian Rose and Sage. I love Sage. Green is a good color for me. I carefully inspected the blanket, including the stitching. Then I stood on it with all four paws (feels nice), played on it and took a test nap. It passed all my inspections. I love it. It's very comfy to nap on and you can play on it too. I already hissed at the guest cat because she came too close to my blanket. She has her own blanket. It's got a dog on one side, MOL. How silly is that.
Thank you Mom (and Mazie for testing and approving), this is a great present for somecat who is a dozen years old.
We love Hazel Lucy,

I've been trying to guess what my additional birthday present is that Mom ordered for me since she forgot my birthday. I finally figured it out. I'm getting my own border installed to mark my territory. Isn't that cool? Mom asked me if I wanted my border to be Victoria Rose or sage. I think Victoria Rose must be the name of the Border Collie who'll guard my border for me. And the border will be in a pretty sage color. Mom knows that I like green. It's about time that I get a border. The darn guest cat is always standing in my way when I run my zoomies.
We also need a border thru Mom's bed. I like to lay on Mom's legs or against her shoulder or sit on the headboard. The guest cat can have a little space at the foot end.
In bird news: Mom saw two little beaks peeking over the nest. They are always wide open. When the parent swallows sound their alarm cry, then the beaks disappear.
I can't wait for my border to finally get here.

Thank you all for the silent fire works on our pages. We spent a quiet day at home. We can't BBQ on our patio because swallows have built a nest under the roof of our patio and Mom doesn't like bird poop in her hamburger. It makes for some great bird watching. We can't see the nest but one of the parent birds likes to sit on a lamp on our patio wall. Mom also goes out with me in my harness almost every day. She doesn't let me go on the patio but on the other end of the condo building there is some shrubbery and I think robins have a nest there. One day Mom and I were walking in that area and we almost stepped on a juvenile robin!!! He was just sitting on the ground and neither Mom nor I saw him until I was a foot away from him!!! I didn't catch him. I was in my harness and Mom scooped me up and carried me home immediately.
Just now I was watching some black birds walk around. The parent was feeding the little one but they were too close for comfort for our swallows. The swallows started dive-bombing them birds. They are gone now. The swallow's air show was pretty impressive.
Mom finally got me some birthday presents. I got an Otto Man. He's pretty awesome. You can lay on top and there is a cubby hole that you can lay inside. The lid flips over into a bed. I have already forbid our guest cat to go inside. I did share with Timo but guest cat is not allowed to touch him. Mom moved my Otto Man to the patio door and I lay inside and Timo on top and we were all bird watching together. Guest cat too. She was laying on the cat tree.
I also got a nip nibbler. It's a little tube filled with nip and you can chew on it. It's got like a mesh cover and if you bend it a little nip falls out. Thank catness that guest cat doesn't like nip.
Live is good over here. I heard Mom say, since she forgot my birthday she'll make up for it. She ordered me something pawsome that has to do with Hazel Lucy and Mazie and the color Victorian Rose. What could it be?

Thank you, dear friends, for stopping by and spending some time with me on my birthday yesterday. Thank you for the wonderpurr gifts and special thanks to the Meezers for the picture with Mousies! I love mousies.
Since I have managed to make my first dozen full, and Mom has forgotten my birthday AGAIN, I've decided that I'll celebrate all week! I am expecting something from Mom. I'm expecting a lot actually, because so far I got nothing! No special food, no treats, no new toy :(
Yesterday it was raining and thundering a lot and then it was cloudy all day. Today again, rain, thunder. Later it's supposed to be in the upper 80s. As soon as the lawn dries off we can all go out there and have some cake and ice cream. I'll show you our swallow that have built a nest under out patio roof. :)
We can't see the nest from the inside, but one of the birds likes to sit on a lamp on our patio wall. We're all watching and clicking at the bird. Because of the dumb birds I'm only allowed to go outside in my harness. I hope they move out soon. I want to run free again.
This morning Mom had to take our guest cat to the vet. Something about rabbits or rabies, I don't know. She is sleeping now. She didn't say how it went. She always gets so upset when she has to go anywhere. She usually makes a poopie in her carrier and today she threw up a little foam. Mom didn't feed her breakfast because she knows it's just gonna come out one end or the other because she gets all worked up about having to visit our nice vet. She is so embarrassing.
Back to me. I'm glad that I'm a dozen years old now. A dozen is good. Lots of things come in dozens. Stick around a bit and I'll make some nip lemonade.
Love you all.

Well, the diary gal thought I need to be a diary pick. So I thought I'd better write something worth reading for you. (not that saving fishes isn't worth reading)
It was fluffy-raining here yesterday. I woke up and big flakes slid down the window. I tried to catch two. Timo ran out on the Patio expecting sun to warm his fur. He turned around and ran right back inside (must not get the fur wet). Then I ran from window to window and told Mom: Mom, it's fluffy raining here too. What's fluffy rain? Well, we are not allowed to use the S-word because it's May 3rd already!! For crying out loud. Makes me wanna cry seeing all that. We got 1.1 inches. At least we broke a record. It never fluffy-rained this late in the year this far south in Iowa. One area in northern Iowa got 11 inches :(
Heck Sunday was in the 70s, Monday 86! Tues & Wedn in the 50s AND NOW THIS. Mom planted Geraniums and Petunias in two containers Sunday. It was sooooo nice, she said she HAD to plant something. What are the birds going to do? There is fluffy rain in their nests. I hope they have flood insurance. It fluffy-rained some more last night. Waiting for it to melt off my lawn :(

Hi all. How is your Spring coming along? Ours is cold and wet. But the weatherwoman on TV said it'll warm up soon.
We are out of dishwasher detergent and that made me think of the fish and of Earth Day. Earth day was a few days ago, but you can still celebrate by saving the fish. If every household in the U.S. replaces just one 45 oz. box of regular dishwasher detergent with phosphate free detergent we could prevent 60 million pounds of phosphates from going into the rivers and lakes. And that saves fish! Please have your purrson look for this stuff next time they go shopping. It's widely available and doesn't cost much more.
YAY for the fish.

Mom was wondering why there are chips on the table and on the floor. Very strange. Is the bag defective? Yes, there is a hole in the bottom. It's a paper chips bag. I wonder who chewed a hole in the bag?
I have to go and help Mom fill out her bracket. Mom knows nothing about BBall. She isn't done yet but I think she made some mistakes already. She picked Arizona to loose (hope Samoa doesn't find out), the Iowa Cyclones to loose (I can understand that, we are Hawkeye Fans). I better help with this. I hope she wins the pool and then I'm going shopping with her prize money.
Speaking of Samoa- Stop by on Samoa's Page to learn how to help Kitty. Kitty and her kitten live at Blizzard's place . Blizzard's Dad is an angel for helping them.
Please pawmail the wonderful Miss Samoa McBoa for info on how to help.
And here is the Facebook link, hope this works, we's not on Facebooky

You have to take out the space that catster will put into the link. Or just pmail Samoa. That might be easier.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Are you wondering what I want for Valentines?
What girl wouldn't like another pair of shoe?
Bedroom slippers looking like a bunny
Tennis shoes with stripes would be funny
Cowgirl boots are cutes
Maybe some sandals
Flip-Flops for the beach
Black shoes with high heels and candles
Is any of this out of reach?

Roses are red,
your eyes are not blue,
I love watching romantic movies with you.
(guess who I love watching movies with?)
