Fun on Tax Day

*Note: This blog featuring Maxi and Delilah was prepared last weekend before Maxi became ill. We wanted you to see our King at his best, and perhaps this will cheer our family and you up.

Delilah: Oh I am so excited!!! Today is wonderful day
and Daddy loves me. He built me a greenhouse!! I have to go check it out."

"It's even better than the picture in the catalog! Maxi, come and see!!!"

Maximillian: "Um, I fail to what all the shouting is about Delilah.
Although, I do think I see some possibilities with this little glass hut."

Maximillian: "For instance, what's in those tiny cups???"

Delilah: "It's something of Mommy's. I wouldn't get too excited bro, it's not exactly nip."

Maximillian: "No, not there.. look up.. on the shelf."

Maximillian: "Go ahead poppet... I dare you to jump up there and see what it is!"

Delilah: "Okay!!! Are you happy now? It's not nip... I think it's Daddy's tomatoes."

Maximillian: "Well Sigh-oh-snora! If it's not nip, I'm outta here.

Besides, here comes Mommy, and when she catches you up there you're gonna be in deep doo-doo little sister!"

Delilah: "Oh (huff, puff) Mommy??? I wasn't in the greenhouse, I promise you."

Mommy: "Hmmmm, then whose paw prints are these in the micro greens???? The Easter Bunny???"

Narrator: "And so it came to pass, that delightful Delilah, the gardening cat, was locked out of her personal greenhouse, built by her personal Daddy.

Such a sad, sad, state of affairs. But at least she did not have to mail a very large check to her Uncle Sam. There are many things a kitty can be grateful for."

Delilah: (fume, fume)"We'll just see about that Narrator!"

Oh, Delilah, what a pawsome greenhouse. We are sure they will grow nip for you too. Good to see Maxi!

Hehehe! We love it! That's a great greenhouse. We think it's great to see happy things too. :)

Nice greenhouse! I hope Maxi is doing better. And I heard it's your birthday -- Happy Birthday!

Alasandra said...

Oh, we are so sorry we haven't had a chance to visit for awhile. We had no idea Maxi was so sick. All of us cats are purring extra hard for him to make up for lost time and Fenris is wagging his tail for him, there is so much happy energy in Fen's tail we are sure Maxi will be able to feel it.

Delilah, we loves the greenhouse your Daddy built you. It was very naughty of the narrator to lock you out. We hopes you and Maxi get to spend lots of happy times in there. We thinks it would be a good place for a party once Maxi gets well.

PS: Tweety, I know what you mean about missing the Alpha Cat. Whiskers was our Alpha (he was a polydactyl too) and I still miss him. Being top cat is hard work, so's I let Scylla share the position. ~Socks

Oh, that was such a nice story and such cute pictures! They looked like they were really enjoying themselves. Nice to know that Maxi had a nice day not too long ago.

And Delilah, Happy Birthday - I am sure you will find some way to get back into that fun greenhouse!

The Crew said...

Delilah dear, we look so much alike if I didn't know better I'd think that was ME laying there. Of course I know it's not, since my Dad never built ME a greenhouse!!


Eric and Flynn said...

It was nice to see Maxi looking so good. We hope he soon starts to improve.
Happy purrfday Delilah. That wasn't fair shutting you out of your greenhouse. Mum can't shut us out of ours because I need to go in there to hatch the lily bulbs.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

How nice your dad built you your own greenhouse. But not nice of the narrator to lock you out of it. You need to file a formal complaint with your dad.

It's good to see handsome Maxi. We hope he is finally eating.

And now we need to sing.

Happy birthday to you-ooo.
Happy birthday to you-ooo.
Happy birthday, green paw Delilah-ooo.
Happy birthday to you-ooo.

Sorry about the howling but Buddy is a hound.

Angel said...

Happy Birthday Delilah. I know it has been hard for you and Mr Tweety to celebrate with Maxie so sick. It was good seeing you and him in the green house... I mean near the green house!

We are still purring for Maxie. We hope he will eat a little today!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is lovely and it looks like a beautiful day. We are purring for Maxi and hope that he is beginning to eat a bit.

Daisy said...

That greenhouse is cool! And happy birthday, Delilah! It was nice to see Maxi when he was feeling better. I hope he starts eating and feeling much, much, much better again very soon. Warmed-up baby food or A/D mixed with warm water would be delicious!

Asta said...

Sweet Praline said...

Thank you for sharing this! It made mom and me smile. I keep purring for Maxi!

Angus Mhor said...

That is a BEAUTIFUL greenhouse, Delilah! How kind of your Daddy to build it for you for your birthday. He must have known how much you'd enjoy lying on the shelf with all the wee plants and soaking up the warmth. Mom uses a squirt bottle on Tallulah when she does something she shouldn't-it works! Maybe you could use one on your Daddy when he tries to shut the door to the greenhouse!

Happy Birthday, Beautiful! You don't look a day over 2.

Cliff and Olivia said...

We're very sorry about Maxi, but glad to know he's getting better. That's an awesome greenhouse.

And we're glad to meet you btw!
