Bird watching is my new hobby ...

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while. I've been having too much fun watching birds play in the lawn and eat from their bird feeder from my new kitty perch in the family room. Have a purrfect day!!!

New tree planted in front yard.

Just thought I'd share a photo of the hydrangea tree that daddy planted in our front yard. Once mature, this tree will be between 8 and 10 ft. tall and be covered with large hydrangea flowers blooming in a fuchsia color throughout the spring and summer months. This year, daddy and mommy planted some Impatiens flowers around the tree since it is too young to bloom this year. Once the Impatiens grow and develop, it should add a nice splash of color to our front yard.

Happy Spring!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry I haven't posted on here for a while. I've been busy doing "kitty" things ... you know, like eating, playing, sleeping, etc.

Mommy took some new photos of me the other day while I was on Daddy's lap getting pampered. See photos below ...

Enjoy your day and stop back again to see if I have any more updates! ~ Robert

Happy Monday!

It's another snowy day here where I live. Mommy said she heard on the TV weather report that it is supposed to be snowy most of the day. Regardless, I get to stay inside where it is warm and cozy so I don't really mind the snow at all.

Me relaxing on the piano bench in the formal living room this morning.

By the way, the other day Mommy took some photos of the steam coming from the nearby ethanol plant down the road from our house. I thought I'd share the photos with you below ...

Happy Friday!

It is snowy today outside my house. Below are some photos of my house with snow all around it ...

... But I don't care if there is snow outside. I am inside where it is warm and cozy!

As you can see by the above photos, I love sitting on my Daddy's lap, because he pets me and snuggles with me. I also love sitting on Mommy's lap, but couldn't do that when these photos were taken since she was the one who took the photos shown above.

Have a joyous weekend! ~ Robert

Me on one of my baby blankets snuggling on Daddy's lap while he watches TV in the Family Room and drink orange juice (shown on end table behind me).

Happy Saturday! The good news on my end is that my vet appointment this morning went smoothly. Luckily, after a thorough check-up the vet determined that I do not have an upper respiratory infection after all, as was originally suspected. (My Mommy tends to freak out if I show any signs of a cold or illness, so she took me to get checked out at the vet this morning. Mommy is rather overprotective sometimes, I think, but I'm glad she cares enough to make sure that I am always OK.) Anyway, my temperature seemed normal this morning and my heart sounds good. I also don't appear to have any swelling on my gums or anything. (Sometimes dental problems in cats can cause sneezing.) The vet thinks that my sneezing and puffiness around my eyes is a result of inflammation of my
sinuses due to excessive dryness in my nostrils and nasal passages. Daddy and Mommy have been instructed to run our dehumidifier more often since that might help with the winter dryness throughout our house, which is likely causing my current problem. So, it doesn't sound like anything too serious, and I will should be fine. The cooler temperatures this winter means our furnace has been running more often, and this makes our house more dry inside.

Hope all is well with you and that you have a wonderful weekend! ~ Robert

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. It is a sunny, cool winter's day right now. I'm happy to be a "house kitty" so I can spend the day snoozing in the warm house on top of the formal living room love seat. Nice and cozy!!!

Today I thought I'd share with you some recent photos that Mommy got from her cousin, Carolyn, who lives in the Chicago area.

Carolyn's daughter, Cassondra, holding her new baby boy, Benjamin, and posing next to the baby's father, Brandon. Carolyn is understandably thrilled to be a first-time Grandma!

Baby Benjamin shown in the adorable photo above at 1 month old.

Cassondra, baby Benjamin, and proud Grandma Carolyn.

Carolyn's Mommy Arlys and my Mommy's Daddy Loren are brother and sister, so Mommy and Carolyn are first cousins. I am happy and honored to have them as part of the "family"!

Hope you have a super day!!! Stay warm! ~ Robert

Mommy went around the house this morning taking these photos from different angles in the house I share with her and Daddy. I thought I'd share with you the results of Mommy's morning photo shoot. Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends! Until next time stay Purrfect just the way you are!!! ~ Robert
