Eat, Bathe, Snuggle, Sleep, Repeat
I love Caturdays! The house is quiet, the Can Openers aren’t as busy, and snuggle sessions are longer and sweeter.
I sneak a lap or two of coffee when the human walks away from her cup for a minute, and snuggle up in her lap when she sits down to enjoy it. The next thing I know, I’m groomed, and freshened and fall asleep feeling unbelievably content and loved.
But Caturdays are the very best.
Twilight gets her snuggles and eats then runs outside to find her Mama and they play and hunt together- while I keep the human company and get snuggles as she has her morning coffee and devotion. And throughout the day she plays with me and spoils me.
When I remember how lonely and unwanted I was before I came here, I can’t believe that life is finally over for me. It’s like I died and went to kitty heaven! Before I wasn’t talked to or handled (unless I was being left someplace)- and when I was left with others they didn’t interact with me because I wasn’t wanted. Sometimes I knew I was downright unwelcome. It was no fun being left in temporary places while my previous human discarded me for long trips. And it always hurt my feelings that after being gone for a long time, she was never happy to see me.
But I’m so happy now. No more long, lonely days wondering if or when I’ll see my “owner” again- and being hurt when she returned because she didn’t want to take me home. Even though I fight with Twilight sometimes (because I don’t always want to play)- I’m still so happy, because I have a family now. And they WANT ME.
I wonder how many other cats there are out there who aren’t loved and wanted? I know there have to be more – and I just wish I could give them hope that someday, somehow- they’ll have a happy family too.
Maybe someday I can find a way…
Felines- God’s gift to Humankind
Today I’m featuring some of the best examples of we fabulous felines that I’ve seen, either because of their cattitude, intelligence, or just good looks -(besides myself, I mean)… so grab your coffee and get ready to wake up happy!
(These cool cats hang out at icanhas.cheezeburger.com)
It has been raining constantly for the last couple of days, and when I heard we might get some snow, I was looking forward to spending the day outside catching snowflakes in mid-air… but it didn’t stick. I was not happy.
Thanks for taking away my snow, Mr. Weatherman
Well, instead of running wild outside and catching snowflakes in mid-air, I spent the day dodging the little tornado and trying to get Sushi to play with me.
She was friendly enough, but didn’t want to play – so we had a grooming session, then I started to engage the Can Opener. I’ve found a new trick that always works- jump on top of the desk, then jump down onto the laptop keyboard while she’s typing! MWAHAHAHA!
But this time… she was ready for it! Dangit. She did something that always sets me off at high speed- she threw one of the tornado’s hair ties at me and I couldn’t resist diving after it!
I loved playing with the critter’s hair tie, and my usual toys, but I’m dying for some real adventure. I miss the sunshine and running wild after squirrels. Even they have been hiding out lately. I go after the ducks and geese, but the geese chase ME! That’s not the way this is supposed to work! Oh well.
Maybe tomorrow will bring some snow!
Well, it’s my snuggle time now- see ya!
She’s going to be a great cat slave when she gets bigger…
I think the reason I love her so much is just because of the way the she lights up when she sees me come into the room, and because she’s always begging the Can Opener to let her feed me treats. The best part is, she never just feeds me “3 or 4” like the Can Opener says- she keeps feeding me more and more and more (until the human catches her). This morning she fed me almost half a bag before the Can Opener caught her and took them away! (Twilight would be so mad)! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!
But I heard the Can Opener tell her she can’t keep feeding me treats if she’s going to give me so many because she doesn’t want me to “get fat!”
But the critter likes me “fat”- and I like the treats. I’m going to have to have a long talk with that Can Opener of mine. This is against the Critter’s constitutional right to “purrsue life, liberty, and (my) happiness!”
I’m calling this post “Monday Mischief” because I plan on getting into a lot of mischief today.
It’s time to have some flipping FUN!
Why get into mischief? I don’t know. Probably because I’m a cat and I feel like it. But mainly because it’s cold and has been raining so much that everything outside is all muddy and I don’t like getting mud on my paws just to go out and run wild for a while. I keep trying to play with Her Grumpiness (Sushi)- but she just grunts and swats at me, and then I get upset and swat the holy heck out of the big whale.
So then I start playing with everything I can find- lucky for me the Can Opener likes to play- only she’s not so crazy about my claws locking onto her when we wrestle. And I’m not crazy about getting my claws trimmed.
But this is why I love the pink thingie- there’s ribbons, and beads, and sparkleys and it’s so much fun! And, it doesn’t yelp when I sink my claws into it!
Well, my tummy’s growling now- time for dinner and my nightly grooming with the Can Opener! My favorite part of the day!
Who knew noise could mean something so sweet?
At my house when the Tiny Tornado comes it gets noisy and she leaves a trail of destruction wherever she goes – But I have to confess- (although Twilight won’t like it) – that I think I love the tiny little thing! She gets so excited every time she sees me as though I’m the best thing in the whole universe- and from the time she notices me until she goes home, I’m all she thinks about! (Besides Ice Cream).
She has this game of trying to touch my ears when I’m asleep, because my ears twitch and she thinks it’s the funniest thing she’s ever seen…
The Can Opener wasn’t herself today
For the last day or two the Can Opener didn’t seem to be feeling good. I mean, she looked good, but didn’t feel like playing with us, and she spent a lot of time just reading. She is always so active and busy it got Twilight and I worried, because she didn’t do any of the things she normally does, and we’ve never seen her so quiet. So we decided that maybe she needed some cheering up- so we’re going to lighten things up a bit.
We think it’s time for some silliness!
