Dream Meme... and a Question

Here is a video of me getting scritches from Mom... and of MaoMao trying to horn in on them! As you will see in the video, I give Mao a look that says, "Please wait your turn." Little brothers... what can a mature ladycat do, but try to teach them proper manners!

My sister-friend-cousin, Gretchen, tagged me for the Three Dreams Meme! Thank you, dear -- this looks like fun.

Here are the rules:

1. Post who tagged you and link back to them and then to

2. Then answer this question: What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble or suffer any consequences?

3. Then tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal.

My dreams......

1. To live in a castle with my darling Mickeybear. Of course we would need to bring our humans along, too *smile*. But oh, what a wonderful thing, to snuggle with my Mickey all the time, and think of the poetry we could write each other...

2. To eat all the stinky goodness my heart desires, without worrying that my figure will become too full!

3. To snuggle in Mom's lap ALL THE TIME. Wait. That could be a problem, seeing as how I want to snuggle Mickeybear, too. Okay. Here's my solution. Mickey dear, first we'll snuggle together in your Mom's lap, then we'll snuggle together in my Mom's lap, and we'll switch between Moms, staying snuggled up together! Don't you think our Moms would enjoy two kitties cuddled in their laps? *giggle*

I tag anycat who hasn't yet played this fun meme.

Now, here's my question: Mickeybear made a Valentine for me. It is also posted for Skeezix's Valentine's Day Contest. Trouble is, I can't get it to load on my computer on either Firefox or Internet Explorer! So what I want to know, to help Mom troubleshoot the problem, is this: is anyone else having trouble seeing the Valentine, or is it just me?

Oh Marilyn, you look so contented while getting your scritches :) They are the best when they are from Mom aren't they?!!
I live your 3 dreams. It is so much fun to snooze away and dream .Dreams are so happy and fun.
I like to dream about Miss Peach :)

I have asked a few friends to let me know if they are having problems viewing my Valentine to you ... one (or two) of whom are Adan and Michico.
Oh I'd love to snuggle with you in a cardboard castle ... and get scritches from my mom and yours!

Jeter got the following message from his best friend Reebok at Catster:

That is so cute! It works for me! Are you making one for me too? LAFFIN

She probably needs to install an Adobe Flash Player. That is my educated guess. LAFFIN

Do you have Adobe?

Gretchen said...

You look very content with those scritches.

I saw your valentine video that Mickey made for you. That's just the sweetest valentine I've ever seen. You are one lucky girlfriendcat. I hope you find a way to see it. My mom bean is of no help.

And your dream meme was lovely. It's too bad that my mom bean has to be sick in order for me to sit in her lap almost ALL THE TIME. When she recovers I'll have to settle for less one on one time.
But I'd rather have her well.

Those are wonderful dreams you have, Marilyn! You look so happy to be receiving scritches! :)

Hi lovely sister,
good on you to give Mao this look. It's always nice to get some wellness moments from your humans. I love it, too!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

That's the nice thing about living alone - no one to horn in on my skritching time. I have a friend cat that I pal around with the lives across the street, but she not come in my house so all the skritches are mine!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You Valentine from Mickey is lovely. We just went there and saw it. I am not sure why it was not working for you!

I loved the video, Marilyn. You looked like you were really loving the mom skritches!

I don't know what to tell you about the valentine . . . Mommy and I watched it this morning with no trouble.

Daisy said...

Getting scritches is the best! I am glad Mao realized he must wait his turn.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Marilyn, you are just so darn pretty! It looks like your Mum gives good scritches.

I laffed at how MaoMao slinked away after you gave him that look : )

zevo calamari said...
