Fashion and Flower Friday

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Here is another photo of me in my business tie. It really helps with my reporting because more cats and humans take me seriously.

The Investor planted a lot of plants in my yard recently. Here is one of the plants she put on the front porch within view of my favorite reporting spot. It's a hibiscus. That pinwheel has been around longer than I. It still twirls nicely.

Thursday Thunder

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Cats of the Household were not scared of thunderstorms that rolled over the Atascadero area early Thursday morning. (Here, thunderstorms are rare.) This is a sampling of the show:

Once again, we slept through the excitement. Here is Kat 3 conked out:

Vishus Deer Sighting!!!

Do you see the Vishus Deer?

We slept right through it.
Good thing it kept walking, because we don't have any Vishus Deer Repelunt!

For our great friend, Anastasia

Please send good thoughts to Arizona. We hope thinking good thoughts will help our friend Ana of The Cat Realm find her way home.

Bogdan: I am watching my yard very closely, so if Ana shows up I can direct her to Tucson, Arizona.

Bogdan: Ana! I'm screaming at the top of my lungs.
Can you hear me? We're all looking for you!!

Meezer Monday

By Kat 3
Morning Scratch reporter

I like to drag my little Meezer self across the carpet... it feels gooooood.

Our human aunt Megan flew on an airplane all the way from Maryland on Wednesday and is staying with us. She's a good cuddler. She likes it when I run around like a crazy kitten! She laughs and laughs.

Grandmaw and grandpaw will be here today from Virginia. They are staying at the Morning Scratch facility, too. I think lots of scritches are in my future!!

Thursday Thirteen, Edition 6

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Thirteen reasons why we consistently miss our Morning Scratch publication deadline.

1. If there's one thing I've learned about journalism since launching The Morning Scratch, it's to be consistent. We certainly do at least that much: We are consistently inconsistent.
2. My staff is sleeping through prime working hours.
3. I'm sleeping through prime working hours.
4. The Investor is busy reading the latest "Harry Potter" book. (At press time (12:05 p.m. PT), she was on Page 478.)
5. The Wii.
6. Kat 3 is very busy helping the Investor clean the dishes.
7. I bought a tie to feel more businesslike; I ended up showing it off to the neighborhood cats for several hours instead of reporting for the paper.
Don't I look like a professional?

8. There's a lot of bunny-kicking to do!
Sara thinks that DKM's snuggles are perfect for bunny-kickin' workouts.

9. The Man is a private pilot, and he is very close to getting his commercial pilot's license. This means, the typist/Investor has been gone from the Morning Scratch facility far too many hours flying around with the Man. Cats are not allowed on the airplane. I am considering a discrimination lawsuit.
Flying into the Santa Maria airport.

10. Kat 3 believes guarding her toys is more important than reporting (not that I argue with that).
Kat 3: "My toys!"

11. Grandpaw and Grandmaw are visiting soon. The Investor is spending many hours chasing us around the house trying to cut our nails and brush our teeths before they get here. She says it's particularly important she clip my claws, being that last time grandmaw visited I smacked her in the face (ooops).
12. Contemplating how to get into off-limits rooms and cabinets (give me Temp-tay-shuns!) takes up several hours each day.
13. Cats have to sleep!

We did the FULL MONTY
