Boxer here:
My apprentice rarely remembers to bring the camera outside.  She so absentminded that way.  But this time she got all on film.

So here I am minding my own business...

Checking things out...

Getting a closer look...

When BAM!  She got me!

And she had a good laugh.
But just so I didn't feel alone in my retaliating thoughts...

She got the Princess too!

It will only be a matter of time before we get her back.  Maybe after tuna and a nap!

How many of your humans do this to you?

Our Green Apprentice

Boxer and Leia here:

 Look at the cat grass our apprentice grew for us!
 Checking it out...

This doesn't smell like the grass outside...


And look at how far our little bit of nip has come!
Can't wait to get some of that!

*Apprentice note:  Boxer and Leia were unsure about the cat grass and I was beginning to wonder if they would eat it when I gave it to them.  I left the room and they mowed it down.  Ha!Ha!

Feline Vibes

Boxer here:

Now usually I only get time on my apprentice's lap at night while she's watching TV.

But today she was sitting and  I was able to take over her lap while getting some much needed attention because you know I'm very deprived with Muttville always hogging her.

 No one comes between me and my apprentice.

That was until Leia tried to steal my spot.  We play "King of the Lap" for a little while, but after a few swats with my paws, licking and biting her ear Leia conceded.  The Lap was all mine.

And if that wasn't enough...

The feline vibes must have been good this day, because look what we have coming...
Our apprentice added these to her garden seeds.  MEE-OWW!!

She's always had a hard time growing catnip, so we need you to send out all the kitty prayers you can all muster.  We'll keep you up to date on the progress!

Tail Twitches,

Taking the time

Boxer's mom here:

Thank you so much for all your kind words and encouragement.  I can not express enough what it means to be able to share and be heard.  Thank you for listening.

Life just got suddenly very hard and difficult and I just found myself at a loss to write.  Emotions were stretched thin and drying up.  Let alone trying to be creative and fun, I was too exhausted.  It's during these times when I curl up in my chair every night and veg out in front of the TV that Boxer gets up on my lap.  It takes him some time to settle down because he never knows if I'm getting up for the dogs, one more time, but when he does, we sit for as long as possible.  Like two peas in a pod.  And it helps through those rough times in life to have this beautiful creature hanging out with me like my best bud.  No matter how much we get on each others' nerves!  Boxer and I have come a long way from when he was that little wild child kitten and I was grieving the loss of my heart cat, Sparky.  Maybe in time I will share about our journey.  And no matter what way you flip it, there is nothing more soothing than a cat's purr.  No dog can come close to that vibrating roar next to your heart.  You can't beat it.  The level of comfort it brings isn't even describable.  Like a lullaby.  It is simply awesome.  It's taken me a long time to let Boxer in.  To open that door of love, because it has been incredibly difficult to let go of not only my first cat, but my first heart cat and the pain was deeper than I could have ever thought possible.  It has been rather trying coming to the grips of losing Sparky.  Just talking about him still makes me tear up.  And I'd like to honor Sparky here as well.

So if you can bear with me as I fumble with my life, the dogs and take some much needed time for the Boxer and Leia, I think I can continue my healing and growing with them.

Thank you again for listening.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Not sure what we are doing

Boxer's mom here:

I generally a very quiet person.  I'm not a talker, but I love to write.  Yet for some reason I've become quite tongue-tied when it comes to writing about the cats for some reason.  It has made me wonder if I should let this blog go being at such a loss for words.  I don't know if it is time to say goodbye or not, but I'm certainly not doing Boxer and Leia any justice by just letting this blog sit.  Originally I started with this idea of little stories and keepsakes about my purring friends, but so much has happened in our lives that I've let everything slide and I don't know if we're are coming back.  We have been so blessed with the readers that we do have, I'm not sure I'm ready to say goodbye just yet.  But I'm still hanging on what to say.  So with that I'll leave you we are taking a little catnap break and see where it goes from there.

Thank you for reading.

Oh Where, Oh Where has my apprentice been?

Boxer here: 

Starting all over with a New Year and the holidays behind us.  And where have been?  Who knows!  My apprentice can't seem to remember a thing about anything.  Which of course includes us.  I swear she lives on that Muttville's blog and totally forgets a thing about us cats.  EXCEPT when it works to her convenience.  Like super cold nights and she needs a lap warmer.  Of course, then we are on good terms, but the rest of time, forget it!  She thinks she's soooo slick and smooth, coming to visit the black finger machine with the screen that keeps us up half the night, writing for the mutts and then, get this, she visits other mutts from around the world on that thing.  What would she do if that machine wasn't in here, we'd never see her!  All the more to sharpen my claws for some a good leg digging dance.  Why don't we test that theory if cats ever forgive and forget my precious....

 All get you my pretty....
