This is what we call a "double header"!
Happy Halloween friends!

|Our farmers market is every Saturday all year round from 8am - Noon. We are lucky, we live very close to the Salinas Valley, which is one of the largest agricultural areas in the US. It's nickname is "The Salad Bowl of America". We have many other farmers markets here in Santa Cruz county, but this is our favorite one and it's the closest to our house.|
These beautiful green beans are also called Haricot Verts. (at least that's what our friends at Le Poupounette would call them!) Our Moms think they are delicious.
This famers sells all kinds of veggies, in all different colors.
Fruits and vegetables are not the only thing at the market. There are also beautiful flowers, bread, organic meat, honey, pastries, eggs and cats for adoption! Mom will try to get some new photos this weekend so we can share more of our market with you.
We had a heck of a time posting this blog entry! We use the "new" blogger and it is so frustrating when we are trying to add photos to our blog. It won't let us put the photos where we want, and everytime we tried to add a caption, the photo would move! Any other bloggers having issues? We're curious. (after all, we're cats!)
Have a most excellent Thursday friends!
|Today we are reviewing the Omega Paw Scratch 'n Massage Bed.|
|This cat pictured on the box must be REALLY tiny, because there is no way the Scratch 'n Massage Bed can fit a regular sized cat.|
|Here it is, out of the box. It's very basic. It's like a box lid with some rippled card board inside. It doesn't come with catnip or anything to attract a cat to it.|
|HOW the HECK am I supposed to lay down in this thing?|
|Hmmm. Busby, your tail is more interesting than this Scratch 'n Massage Bed.|
|If you look closely, |
you can see Raymond's unsolicited
opinion of this product.
|The box it shipped in is FAR |
more fun to play with!
We personally do not care much for the Omega Paw Scratch 'n Massage Bed. Mom sprinkled some catnip in it which we licked up and that was about it. Raymond scratched at it a little bit last night, but otherwise it is not getting our attention at all. We do want to mention that the
Omega bed is made with 98%
post-consumer recycled materials.
That part makes us happy.
Have a great Tuesday friends!

pee ess: For those who asked,
Raymond's nickname is "Sleeky Shrimp".
Or "Ray Ray" or "Hey, don't pee on the bed!"
|Hurry up MOM! Open it!|
|If you don't hurry I'll open it with myself!|
|Oh My CATS! Look at all the wonderful prizes!|
|I LOVE Cat Dancers! My old one is worn out, so I am SO excited to get this new one!|
|GREENIES! And in our favorite flavor, chicken!!|
|This VERY cool kong toy for bunny kicking! LOVE the color!|
|This fishy with a worm! I have never seen anything like it!|
|A card with MY name on it!!!|
|This cool cat that hooks onto Mom's cell phone. We have a friend who is Japanese who collects these, so we know all about these! Mom LOVES it!|
|So far, I have to say the PINK kong toy is my favorite.|
|I have even been sharing with Raymond! (even if he did reveal my nickname is "Bubba"!)|
Thanks again for the great prize package! Happy Monday everyone!
Hello friends! To answer your questions, yes, I am a bit smaller than Busby. I was the runt of the litter and he was pretty much the big honking kitten of the litter. I am more svelte and lynx-like than Busby. (his nickname is Bubba, if you get my drift.)
To quote the CFAA "The Tonkinese blends the best features of its ancestors into one beautiful, medium-sized cat that is remarkably dense and muscular."
So Busby is "remarkably dense". Hee hee hee!
Have a wonderful Sunday friends. xoxo, Raymond
|I thought a Miniature ME would be a fun take on the theme!|
|SET LASERS TO STUN! Oh! Hello friends! I was just checking out Raymond's sock full of Valerian. I HAVE NOT been licking it and rubbing it with my face and drooling all over it for the last fifteen minutes and playing Star Trek. Not me. No way!|
Just a few plants are still presentable in the garden these days. Let's stroll!
|This is the Bolivian Fushia. It lives in our side yard. It needs ZERO water during the Summer which is good because here in Capitola we don't get any rain in the Summer. Our rainy season usually starts in late October and if we are lucky runs until April or May.|
|The Pink Hibiscus is doing great. Pretty soon my Mom will cut it back for Winter.|
|In the backyard, two types of Yarrow. This one is called Paprika Yarrow. The butterflies love it.|
|This is a Yellow Yarrow. (of course!) The Yarrow does well without much water too. We try to plant things that don't need much water since we live in an area that has seen lot's of drought over the years.|
|Some people don't think we get "seasons" here in California, but we do! You can tell by looking at our neighbor's yard that it's Autumn!|
|Raymond and I want to thank EVERYONE for making our Sixth birthday so lovely! We did a lot of cuddling yesterday. Plus we got some new toy mice! (photos at a later date!)|
|Thanks for taking the Garden Stroll with us today friends!|
