Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Man Cat Monday - Spring Has Sprung

Mom and I could not let the deadline pass without entering the Simply Siamese "Spring has Sprung" Contest. Mancats always like to help out their fellow felines; in this case it's Sammy and Miles Meezer. True mancats aren't afraid to pose with flowers since we know how popular flowers are with the ladies.

These are snowdrops.


And these are yellow crocus.

And these are miniature iris (I. reticulata).
We also have winter aconite and hellebores in bloom now in our garden.
I have a confession to make since Bathsheba will rat me out otherwise. Mom had to bribe me with treats to pose with these flowers. She tucked the treats in with the flowers so that's why my nose is stuck in the iris here.
Happy Meterological Spring!
P.S. One of these days we will complete the 7 Weird Things Meme and there will be a startling confession from Bathsheba.

You look handsome with the flowers, even though your Mom did have to bribe you to get the photos.

Jake, I have a secret too: my Mommie sometimes uses treats to bribe me to get the shot, also. I cannot wait to learn Bathsheba's startling confession!
