Hey, Wally…this should be a fun week.  Mom’s on staycation all week and she can spend lots of time with us.

I don’t know about that, Ernie.  Not if she’s gonna be sleeping in like she did this morning.  Remember how late our breakfast was??

Yeah, Wally, I was starving!  I thought I was gonna pass out from hunger!

And I heard her say she’s got lots of stuff to do…like cleaning and things called “errands” and catching up.  I don’t think she’s gonna spend any time with us at all.

Jeez, you’re right, Wally!  She might as well go back to work!  We’d probably see her more!

Hey!  We wanna remind everybuddy about the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics and the event we’re hosting…Synchronized Snoozing.  We’ve received some great entries so far…but we can use more!  Just email us (theislandcatsATgmailDOTcom) your picture of two or more of you snoozing together in unison!  Only one of you? Be creative!  Snooze with your human or a stuffed animal!  We’re accepting entries until July 13.  For more details on how to enter the competition, click HERE or the 2012 Cat-O-Lympic picture on our sidebar.  We’ll be setting up a page with all the entries (one of the things we hope our mom will do while she’s on staycation this week).

Also, the Cat Blogosphere is joining with the Dogs of Blogsville for one HUGE Olympic Games!

Click on the picture above to find out more details about the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and all the competitions you can enter (there’s a lot)!  This is gonna be fun!!

  1. Oh we betcha, that lady with the yellow hair will spend some time with you kitties. We just wrote her an email with a question about the synchronized snoozing.
    Hope all have a super day.

  2. you guys are falling down on the job… you let her sleep in?

  3. We agree – you LET her sleep in??? We don’t care what day it is – we demand breakfast in a timely manner (and if we don’t get it, we rile up the foster kittens….MOL)

  4. We’re sure your lady with yellow hair will spend lots of time with you after she’s done all her “other” important things like ladies lunches, gossiping, shopping and stuff – Mum’s always seem to have lots of “stuff” to do – what stuff is more important than you?

  5. Staycations are the best! My assistant has been home with me for a few days as well.

    Your pal, Pip

  6. I hear ya’.
    These staycations are not all they’re cracked up to be.
    ; ) Katie

    I’m still working on my synchronized snoozing! …gotta get creative since I have no one to synchronize with but myself. heh heh

  7. Have a great staycation with your mom, guys! Our mom is on permanent staycation mode since she lost her jobbie.

  8. Late meals? Cleaning? With the noisy monster peeps call a vacuum? What kind of staycation is that? I’ll be thinking of you… purrs

  9. Well you two just need to make sure you grab her attention!

  10. Staycations can be a lot of fun! We hope your mom will give you extra snuggles and treats this week.

    We are trying to get some good pics for the event!

  11. Hello my beloved friends!
    oh gosh…I’m happy…so happy visiting you guys!
    Hmmm wonderful sunny day there and it’s purrrfect because you mammy is there with you!Lucky friends, enjoy!
    I’m always thinking of you all,

  12. We don’t understand this thing, letting the human(s) sleep in. Why can’t she get up at her usual time, then go back to bed if she feels like it? Man, you guys need to ramp up your mom’s training!

  13. Why can’t humans have Catacations? All cat, all day!

  14. I know efurrything about humans that sleep in too , my mom did that today and me too thought I would die from starvation.
    The Cat and Woofie olympics are going to be sooo mucg fun to wach and participate in 😀

  15. That does not sound fun at all! We hope Mom takes tome to relax with you!

  16. Why don’t you boys sing to her? We bet that would wake her up at the right time!

  17. They call it a holiday, then do all kinds of “work” around the house!!!
    Beans are weird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Stay cool boys 🙂

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure and JJ

  18. How cool that she’s home all week. We’re purrty sure you won’t let her get away with that “sleeping in” thing again!!

  19. Oh noes moms with extra time on their hands can be very very dangerous for your naps.
    Being a one and only cat here I don’t have anyone to synchronize my sleep with…..however, I do have some older pictures of me sleeping with my sis’s first kitty Cali…are older pictures acceptable? If so, let Mom know. I’d love to enter your event.
    Hugs Madi

  20. Hm… I thought “STAYcation” meant your human was going to stay around and cater to you guys. I don’t see a lot of staying here!

  21. Oh, I’m sure your mom will spend time with you two beauties:-)
    Hugs from Pernille


  22. Sounds more like stayawaycation! I should protest most strongly!!

  23. Well, even if Mom is busy, at least she’ll be around more of the day!

  24. That’s just wrong! Your Mom should be devoting every single minute to you guys.

  25. mol! the double-edged sword of staycations! 😀 you two should try some synchronized pouncing on your mom in the morning! (but you didn’t hear that from us…)

    say, we might have some recent synchronized snoozing pic-shers we can enter! we hope you kitties can rearrange your mom’s priorities this week – have a good one!

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  26. Your mom obviously needs to be reminded of what a STAYcation is! We hope she figures it out so you don’t starve in the mornings because of a late breakfast!

  27. Oh we hope your Mom will spend a bit more time with you while she is on her staycation. We bet she will. How could she resist either of you?


  28. I can hardly wait for the Olympics!!!

  29. Maybe Mom will get all her errands done early and have the remainder of time to serve, er, spend time with you! Tell Mom Happy Staycation and enjoy!

  30. Our Mom’s stay-cation was also very un-fun for us. No extra kitten love. Cat Olympics sound exciting! We will try to enter!

    Gronk and Izzie

  31. Yea–Tommy’s stay-cation is kinda like ‘stay away from home–we’ll see how she does over the 4th–but HEY, dudes–that ladder!! I be likin’ that a whole bunch–when I can move in with you guys??


  32. Yeah, mum stays home and then works so much doing things other than with us.

    We are working on our entry!

  33. We hope your mum has a great staycation!!!

  34. Thank you so much for your kind words about our Chevelle.

  35. Well, my Human has been home for like four days, moaning and groaning over some little rock. Frankly, I wish she’d go back to work. She’s always around with her grabby hands and flashy box introoding on my Main Nap of the day (usually from like 9 or 10 to 4 or 5. Honestly, why not just go back to work? She can moan and groan in her office and *I* will not have to listen to it!!!

  36. Hmm, the trade offs of a staycation.. yeah, breakfast is later, but there’s more sleeping on mom time.. Errands and catching up take her time, but probably less than actually working… hope you get lots of snuggles and snacks guys!

  37. WOOT! We just sent in our entry! Synchronized snoozing finals, here we come!!

  38. You all need to get together and forge a plan.You know, strength in numbers! You can trip your Mama up to force her to slow down and NOTICE you. Put those heads together and sabotage errands and anything else not related to her COMPLETE DEVOTION. You can do it! We have faith in you!

    the critters in The Cottage xo
    P.S. LP says she hopes your Mama has a relaxing staycation! 🙂

  39. we hopes your mom enjoys her staykshun!

  40. You let your human sleep in??? What has the world come to??
