Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms - Whether you're Human, Doggie, Kitty, Bunny, Gecko or even Squirrels - Here's to Moms of all species!

Oh, and speaking of Moms, Simone is so on Blog Mom's list - and not a good list, either if you get my drift. Blog Mom has been saying to everyone how Simone has mellowed lately and become such a nice, mentally stable kitty. And it's true, she has been much more pleasant. Except this morning she was sitting on Blog Mom's lap while they checked e-mail and I was just passing by on the way to my bed. It was time for my morning nap, you see. I didn't even glance Simone's way. I wish we could all be closer, but the truth is the cats and I generally confine ourselves to a stiff nod if we must pass in the hall or on the stairs. Otherwise we just ignore each other. That's their choice and not my idea of how families should interact. So I was just passing by, thinking no thoughts about a pussycat whatever. Simone got all stiff and hissy and Blog Mom told her to knock it off, but she paid no attention and took a swipe at me, claws out, too. Attacked me, in other words. She missed, but Blog Mom is so disappointed in her she said. That's the worst - when they're disappointed in you. Simone knows it, too, because she's been sitting on Blog Mom most evenings since this big personality improvement she was supposed to have had. Not tonight. She's over on Daddy who wasn't in the room for the brutal attempted assault.

Blog Mom says if Simone keeps it up she just might reconsider the idea of getting me a little brother. She says that one of the reasons they, so far, have decided not to is because these cats are not fond of dogs and I don't bother them. I think Blog Mom's thinking is along the lines of "If you're going to hiss and scratch maybe you need something to hiss and scratch about."  I doubt if Blog Mom will go through with it. I'm pretty much using up the canine portion of the family budget very nicely, for one thing. I'm not sure how I feel about it myself. I like company, but I have it awfully good being the one and only dog, but I think it's good if Simone contemplates the possibility and develops a little appreciation of....well....of me, Lola.

  1. Oh, Lola! I can't believe Simone would behave so reprehensibly! I think she certainly needs to develop a strong appreciation for you, too!

    I wouldn't mind everybody fussing over me all the time, but it is very nice to have company -- especially when Mom and Dad have to go to work!

  2. Hi, Lola!
    Oh-oh! Sounds like Simone was in bad mood mode!
    I hope she understands the meaning of another doggie at home!
    Happy Mother's Day!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Hi Lola,

    Happy Mother's Day!... I guess Simone had a real bad day, huh... and if I were her, a little appreciation goes a long way... but a brother playmate for Lola does sound fun too :)

  4. Oh my!! I can't believe Simone launched such a brutal near miss attack! Sounds like you took the high road.

    On the subject of a brother... I LOVE my sisters and simply couldn't imagine being an only dog. My big sister Ginger, the Shar Pei, was happy being an only dog until Cali came around and then she realized what she'd been missing. For the rest of her life she adored Cali and later me and Phoenix - though never as much as her first sister. A brother wouldn't be so bad, I bet. :)

    Happy Mother's Day to your moms!! ♥

    Wags,

  5. Oh dear, oh dear. Did you know Cap'n Ripley did the same thing to Brudder Ranger the other day?? Can you believes it? And you know - he hardly pays me any mind and puts up with me trying to get him to play and stuff. But Brudder Ranger can be walking along minding his own beeswax and Cap'n Ripley will rush up to him and hiss and swat at him. Kittehs are kinda weird, aren't they?

    I hopes you and your moms had a Most Wonderful day. Please tell them both Happy Mother's Day from me and Brudder Ranger!

    Wiggles & Wags,
    Mayzie

  10. Dear Lola. I've been getting so many lovely and funny comments from you, but I rarely have the time to leave a comment these days. I can't believe Simone pulled that stunt on Mother's Day! BTW you just described our life in my home too. Two of our three kitties, behave exactly like Simone. I say you get a new brother or sister asap, and keep the kitty's nails nicely trimmed. Kk?

  12. Lola, tsk tsk tsk... We're not surprised by Simone's behavior. It's only a matter of time before kitteh's (alien's) true colors surface. We're so sorry you had to suffer the wrath of Simone. Beware Lola!

    Love,
    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  13. Morning Lola!!!
    Poor sweet Lola sounds like you almost got the sharp end of Simone...Madi suspects Simone is especially after you per se but just any object that takes away 200% of the attention that she thinks should be focused on her. She is lucky you are a sweet Pei!!!

  19. Lola, you are a much bigger dog than I! I would bark and growl at any cat in my house. Especially if they were swiping at me. Extra treats to you for being so responsible....tell one of your Mom's to give 'em to ya cause Twix said!
    I hope both of your Mom's had a happy mother's day yesterday!
    Snuggles,

  20. First of all, should that mom be drinking a martini in front of her children? heehee! I don't think the kiddos are watching what their mom is doing so I suppose her secret is safe with me!
    I am so sorry about Simone the cat's behavior! Cats can be quite rude sometimes and I hope no one is going to take that catty behavior seriously! heehee!
