Sometimes just messy days

 "Lynn,  I do not think any of this stuff is really my fault.  Or that I should have to put up with getting my claws clipped!"

I beg to differ, Precious.  Just look at my ugly and
disgusting (any and all the time, by the way) leg.
Full of whole punches!  And whose needle sharp
claws sink into it every eve for our leg time?
I have not seen any other kitty in this house of ours!

"And I thought gittin' my brushies ev-furry day
many times over, should have kept the fur ball
out of my tummy.  I think you must have been doing it

There is good news and bad news about the fur ball
yak up.  The good news,  it was not on the carpet.
The bad news, it was on the lovely turquoise blanket.
The good news,  it was folded in 1/2 for extra sleeping
comfort and therefore caught all the spit with it.
The bad news,  I found the mess 10 minutes after I
had started a load of laundry!

And then I have this blooming, so it makes up for
the messes.  
Thankfully deer do not eat iris!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit and a comment.
It is much appreciated.

Oh Yes - your leg looks like a pincushion Lynn ... a bit like my arm after Little One has finished (!!) And Yes we have a fur-ball chucker-upper here too ... usually Madam Pip. I am pleased the blue blanket caught it all ... usually Miss Pip aims for my slippers.
On a happier note ... that Iris is simply stunning - what an unusual colour it is. Your garden is looking so pretty. Have a wonderful weekend xx

WILLIE...! =(^..^)= said...

I was going to say...and few holes in the bottom
part of the leg is'nt to bad, no~ones gonna really
notice them...HeHe! Are they...I've had quite a few
of them over the years with pussy~cats...! Bless! :).

I like the flowers, l was gonna ask are they Iris..but,
Julie has already said they are Iris...Nice, love the
colour, my most favourite flowers are Pansies, followed
by Orchids..but, l do like the shape and colour of Iris!

You both have a nice weekend..and Precious, you enjoy
your 'leg time' with Mum...Bless! :O)x

Oh goodness, my lady cat & cat lady friends- messy days all 'round indeed. You know, sometimes they happen to the best of us, and I'm sure lots of fellow feline bloggers would agree. Mom and dad would say picking up my upchuck is one thing, but when it goes undiscovered long enough to become part of whatever it was spewed on is another entirely. Happy weekend to you both.

The happier side of being a cat's servant . . . scarred for life!

Dearest Lynn and Precious,
Guess we all have to put up with 'decorated' arms and legs!
It shows we we are well loved...
Our Spooky knows how to aim at a freshly changed bed!
But we all manage and thank goodness we have a washer.

Precious, you definitely needed a pawdicure! Ouch to all those claw punctures!

Ugh to the hairball! At least the blanket is easier to clean than the carpet. 😁

It's especially gross when you step in one in the dark, in bare feet. 😝

At least the gorgeous irises don't require any clean up!

Have a terrific weekend!

Yep, those little claw needles sure can be sharp, we have lots of those here too. That was some yak attack Precious!

Zoolatry said...

OMC, the flowers are lovely ~ however ~ we have two arms to match your leg, wanna trade? June has not had a nail trim in close to a year (cannot get her into the carrier), she kneads when being brushed, sigh. It's fun is it not, being the recipient of all that loving?

My Mind's Eye said...

Precious...note to you. Lynn's leg is not a scratching post. Ouch
I still have a scar on my left wrist from Angel Milky=Way. Actually not all his fault he was resting fully asleep in my lap when something startled him. His hind claws peeled out of my lap like a rocket. Of curse that is very thin skin there too.
Lovely blooms too
Hugs Cecilia

Lovely flowers! Nail-clipping is just one of those things we have to put with so that our humans are happy!

Precious, if you continue to want leg time every evening, you are going to have cease and desist on the hole piercings! Those little cuts are very painful for your Mom. Purrhaps Mommy should wear pajamas from now on, hoping you don't slash them to bits.

Eastside Cats said...

Precious, you'd better have another think about sticking your claws into your human!

The Florida Furkids said...

That looks ouchie. said...

Be gentle Precious! Lovely flower photos!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Wow Precious, that is a real pin cushion leg! I was lucky, the boys always kept their claws worn down with all the long walks we took.

Henny Penny said...

Precious, did you really do all that!! Goodness. That picture of you is so beautiful! Looks like a painting. Your Iris are beautiful, Lynn.

Ouch on the leg. Be gentle Precious. Beautiful blooms. XO

Precious, you've put your name all over your mom's leg!

John Bellen said...

Oh, that face says it all! And finding messes the cats have made usually occurs here just as I am about to relax after dinner. Sigh. More work...

Katie Isabella said...

Well Precious, I avoid being caught for a trip to the vet (I won't allow mom to do it) to get my claws cutted! As a result, I scratch mom's arms a lot reaching out to pat her. She needs to call Tuesday for an appointment for me. .

messymimi said...

Precious, you most certainly did need the claws clipped, or maybe have those softpaws things put on.

The flowers are beautiful, I'm glad the deer don't eat them.

Thank you for linking up with Feline Friday!

The J-Cats said...

WE agree with Precious. NO to claw clipping. We are furry proud of Our Magnificent Murder Mitts!
And MUMMY agrees with Lynn. The lovely flowers make up for everything.

Charlee: "Precious! How did you manage to miss THE ENTIRE CARPET with that hairball?"
Chaplin: "I think the problem here with your mom's leg is that you haven't got your acupuncturist's license yet. You can probably send away in the mail for one though!"

CCL Wendy said...

Precious, you look so evil in that first picture. And your evil intent showed up on your Mom's legs! I hope you apawlogized to her. She is the source of everything you get, including food and toys. Purrhaps you didn't really mean to scratch her like that. A few hugs and kisses from you wouldn't hurt!

CCL Wendy said...

I really enjoyed your detailed description of the yak up, too!

Just one neighborhood kitty
