Photo Hunt: Purple
See what I mean? What can I say, I was just one year old when these photos were taken, they're from 2005. I still look the same, don't I?

Thursday Garden Report with Raymond
Here's a photo of one of the many volunteer sunflowers (thanks to the bird feeder and the sloppy birds). This photo is from June 10th and...
...Here is the SAME sunflower today! It GREW like CRAZY!
Here's yet another Saliva. It sprang up out of no where and has established itself next to our driveway.
We leave you this week with a look at our tomatoes. We grow them in a raised bed on the Southwest side of the house. They seem to like it there. We have three heirloom varieties. A friend of ours gives us seedlings, we never know what to expect!

Thursday Garden Report with Raymond
We have a bird feeder and it has surprised us with a few sunflowers that are popping up all over the garden. There are three or four of them that have suddenly appeared! It's kind of exciting because we don't know what they will look like.
We have a garden pig, a garden frog and some garden quail and here is our garden CAT. As you can see, she is a CALICO girl. (We love Calicos!)
We'll end today's tour with a shot of our marigolds. Not only are they pretty, but they discourage certain garden pests. We never use pesticides in our garden.
Please remember to visit the other Feline Gardeners today! Have a purrific Thursday!
OH! And don't forget that today is the last day to enter our Haiku Contest! The cut off for entries is 8pm Pacific time tonight! xoxo, Raymond

Cat Tree Review and Haiku Contest!
The cat tree piqued our curiosity as soon as it came out of the box! We snoopervised as our Moms put it together. We couldn't even WAIT until it was built to start playing with it!
Our Moms said it was easy to put together. It seems sturdy. They say that the fleece is a bit messy when we claw at it. There are some blue fuzzy things on our carpet. (Get over it Mom!) They may end up putting sisal on the other two legs on the cat tree. (one leg all ready has sisal on it.)
We really like the little hanging ball that comes with the cat tree, they actually include a SECOND ball in case the first gets completely chewed up. The top part of the tree has a little tunnel, which is sort of a tight fit for Busby, but he likes to lay inside of it anyway. The cat tree we picked is 30" tall. Just the right height to sit on and gaze out the window.
We give the Armakat 30" Faux Fleece Cat Tree two (four?) paws up. Thank you to the folks at CSN stores for giving us the $40 gift code in exchange for our review.
Now about our CONTEST! It's a HAIKU CONTEST!
Our contest is simple and fun! Leave us a Haiku as a comment! A Haiku is a very short poem that is only three sentences long.
The first sentence must have five (5) syllables. The second sentence must have seven (7) syllables, and the third sentence must have five (5) syllables. You can write it about any subject you want. To be eligible for the prize drawing, your haiku must follow traditional haiku format, and it must be original. Raymond wrote a haiku for Frootbat Friday on June 4th, if you need an example of a haiku.
The winner will be selected by a random drawing. The prize is a $40 gift code courtesy of CSN Stores. You can get yourself the same cat tree we reviewed, or use your code at any of the other 200-plus CSN stores.
Unfortunately, the prize is only valid in the U.S. or Canada. Only one entry per family please. Contest ends 06/10/10 at 8pm Pacific Time. The winner will be announced on Friday June 11th and must respond with a current email address within 48 hours to claim the prize. (We'll also need your human's name) Otherwise, another eligible entry will be chosen. Please make sure that you leave a way for us to contact you in case you win. Good Luck friends!
Details about the gift certificate (promo code): This will be emailed to you directly from CSN. They will not share your email address with any other companies. Gift Certificate “Code” will be used during the last step of checkout on their web site under “Promotional Codes.” Code expires after first use. Entire promotional amount must be used on first purchase. If the total cost of basket exceeds the amount of money from the promotional code, you are responsible for the difference. Promotional code will be applied to all items in your basket.

Have a great weekend friends! xoxo, Raymond (hard at work testing this cat tree!)

Thursday Garden Report with Busby
We got another tree! This is a miniature fig tree, it's called a Black Jack fig. It doesn't get very big and is supposed to have delicious and abundant fruit. We are VERY excited about it. (plus it was on sale for 20% off!) Our neighbor's bike is in the background. We told you our garden space is small.
Last but not least, our catnip plant! Mom put it in a hanging basket because there are roaming cats in our neighborhood. This photo isn't very good, we'll try to get a better shot of our nip next week.
