It was refreshing to see my humans working their hands to the bone, cleaning up the fine mess we all made of the house. They just could not understand how it happened. I should like to thank all of you for your help!
I was pleased that we got a bit of record-breaking late snow–here and in La Conner about an hour north. Yes, at the end of April, snow landed on the tulips. Sadly, the Woman noted that a lot of the little specialty shops in town were going out of business, including Good Kitty Bad Kitty, which was a favorite of hers. Of course, we all know which cat I am.
At any rate, I made out well as she purchased a bunch of stuff from them and got it at 50% off. She shouldn’t be spending money, but how can you pass up such a sale?
They drove up the Valley along the Skagit River and had pizza in Concrete. No, not bad pizza, but pizza in the town of Concrete. A lovely place that we are constantly hoping Stephen King will set a novel. They did find that Sedro Woolley was only about an hour from Mt. Baker Ski Area, which is a bit closer than Bellingham. This means that the north eastern part of Mt. Vernon isn’t much farther, which puts it in the running for a retirement area.
I firmly believe I belong at Mt. Vernon, although I thought it was on the east coast?
Angus Mhor says
And why do you firmly believe you belong in Mt. Vernon? Is it famous for excellent catnip? Or does it have cat-themed specialty stores? Or maybe a lot of your constituents are there?
It does sound like a lovely drive.
Cat stuff is a necessity to buy at all times. But a novel set in Concrete? HAHAHAHAHA.
Henry Helton says
You like the snow? Snow is cold man. Snow is bad.
Big Piney Woods Cats says
Mt Vernon is a gorgeous place! As you know, Daddy’s aunt lives in Mukilteo. I think, maybe they got some white stuff. We are apposed to get a whole bunch of white stuff tonight! If so, the contest winner will change. It is the winter that never ends…..the weather man efun said that.
The Cat Realm says
SNOW? We all don’t like snow – so it is very good that we never really get any, I guess…
Camie's Kitties says
Mom has pictures of the outside of Mt. Vernon. You can’t take pictures inside of it because of too many fragile things and things not owned by Mt.Vernon itself. It sounds like your mom and day had a nice trip.

Gandalf & Grayson says
At least your human brought you something… all we got was 500 photographs of Savannah.
The Taylor CatSSSSS says
Hey, our “beans” love Mt. Vernon. It is not that far from where we live.
Snow….we LOVE snow!!!
Ooh Mummy knows Mt. Vernon! That’s a nice area she says… Though you might have to worry about vishus deer?!
Dragonheart & Merlin says
Snow? Yikes! Those poor tulips. 🙁
You look lovely lying there in the sun, Chey. 🙂 We both like to sleep with our paw over our face like that on occasion. 🙂
I’m glad they came home with gifts.
Eric and Flynn says

zevo hussein calamari says
It is good they came bearing gifts after deserting you for a weekend.
I am soooo sorry I haven’t been around my beautiful and wonderful lovely wife. I promise I will plan something extra special for Monday so I’d start packing those goodies if I were you!!
Buying stuff on sale is like SAVING money, so you can get as many sale things as you want. The more you buy, the more you save!
Snow? Miss Gemini, snow?
We had 80+ degrees and warm sunbeams, ya wanna come ofur and play?
We can chase the butterflies and fireflies…
Kelly Cat says
Warm sunshine on an exposed tummy — and I bet you were purring too.
Mount Vernon is right here in Virginia!
I am so glad you are back!
We have had rain and heavy rain for three days!
At least they brought you back gifts….which they should when they leave you alone!
Forty Paws says
Hah hah! Glad you got a ton o’ loot for their having left you alone. We’re so happy that we could help you trash the place too.
The Meezers says

Good that you trashed the house 😉
We had enough snow and do not want anymore.
It did snow out west though!
Lucky for your Mom she bought you goodies!!!!
Sabrina, Sam and Simon says
We need to trash the house, that sounds fun!
And you deserve having stuff bought for you, too.
We need to send our Momma out to get us some stuff.
Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon
Chey I am sure that you taught your Mommie a lesson with that big mess! I did not know that Good Kitty, Bad Kitty had a store! I bet there are not any close to me! Boo.
Yaffa & Sebastian says
Snow! Snow! You are still getting snow! Oh dear.
Oh, the joys of a strip of sunshine….
Skeeter, LC, and Ayla says
Presidential catidates should be aware that not all “Mt Vernons are where the 1st Pres lived. “Foreign affairs” of them outlying States hisstakes can get ya in trouble.
Cute picture, Chey! I hope you got a lot of treats from the sale!
