Hey guys. I know this is my day to let you all know what I’m doing, but honestly, I haven’t been doing much…just a lot of napping, eating, playing, being antagonized by Ernie…y’know…same ol’ same ol’. So today I’m turning the blog over to Chip and Slim…our garden center cats. Let’s see what they’re doing.





I hear Chip has quite the routine going these days. Every morning after being fed breakfast in the back-room garage where he and Slim live, he shows up at the side door to the garden center.

Now normally, Chip and Slim aren’t allowed in the store, but Chip is very persistent and the dad-guy can’t say no to that face and lets him in.

Chip does his morning walkabout the store saying hello to all the workers and making sure everything is in order for the day. But then his true motive for wanting to get inside becomes apparent.

He makes a beeline to a back storage room…jumps up into the rafters…and heads to his new favorite napping spot…

…an old red chair that was used in a Christmas display but now has been relegated to storage.

Chip spends the entire day sleeping on that chair. And I don’t blame him. It’s comfy…it’s inside…it’s out of the way…what more can a cat ask for?

There’s been times when the store is closing and Chip is still up there. That’s dinnertime, too…so the dad-guy has to coax him down. Hey, you wouldn’t want to miss dinner would you, Chip?

So what’s that Slim doing all day??

Being lazy…sleeping the day away in his garage room. Rumor has it Slim barely budges from that spot all day. Well…he makes a good point…he does have it pretty nice there.

I hope you all enjoyed this edition of “What’s That Chip & Slim Doing?”
