HAPPY FRIDAY! GIVE YOUR CAT SOME LOVE!
Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
I got a good look at my cute little face. Wow.
Mom’s right. I am absolutely the cutest feline anywhere… I noticed my face in the mirror, and I realized that I truly am “One of a kind.” My stripes are perfectly in order, my nose is flipping adorable, my eyes are light blue, and I’m super smart too!
My humans fell in love with me at first sight, and now its been 7 years, and I finally have them mostly trained.
Sushi tries to take the spotlight- and in a sense, she does. In the sense that there’s always a big “elephant in the room” that the humans have to be careful not to trip over!
Sushi complains constantly about being on a diet. The humans are concerned for her because the vet said she needs to lose weight. They are doing everything they can to help her- but the girl was born to eat. She cons the grandkids, and walks in the human’s friends’ houses and helps herself to their food (not the good stuff Mom feeds us), and she’s been taking lessons From Sheba to sniff out treats- even if theyre not in our house.
As much as Sushi hates being on a diet, our Can Opener has plans for her to helep her. I’ll post on that later, from a safe distance. For now, any small animals need to stay inside…..
I’m so Fabulous! (Okay, maybe Twilight is too)- but I want you to meet some other Fab felines!
But then she saw this one, and OH MY FLEAS!
Hey- maybe if I convince Twilight I’m a Bobcat, she’ll stop pouncing on me when I’m trying to sleep!
Sometimes I get so tired of the paparazzi around here.
Okay, they tell me I’m a beautiful girl and then they take pictures of me constantly. I can’t bathe myself, or play, or even take a nap without waking up at least 4 times to someone holding a phone up in front of my face to snap a picture. When I was first adopted, I thought it was so cool, but then after seeing how often it was happening, it got to be a little too much. Especially since I wasn’t the one deciding how or when the pictures were taken.
And, it happens all the time, but it’s worse when the little critter is here. She tracks me down no matter how well I hide. And of course, wherever she goes, the Can Opener is going to be right behind her- and not to stop her from bothering me, but to take pictures of whatever the little thing puts me through!
Although, I hate to admit it (except in this diary), but sometimes, it actually makes me feel pretty special. Like yesterday when she was here, and it was naptime. She insisted on tucking me in for my nap first.
She may be loud and busier than a hornet’s nest, but she is also very tenderhearted and sweet.
She gently tucked me in and gave me a kiss and told the Can Opener to quit talking so I could sleep. Once she knew I was warm and cozy she was content and snuggled up with the human for her own nap. She made me feel like the luckiest kitty in the world- and even though I get a little annoyed at times, I know they love me, and I wouldn’t trade them for anyone!
Before I get to the other fabulous felines…
I just have to say, I have a complaint. Yep. Whether she realizes it or not, the Primary Can Opener around here is the Complaint Dept. I would think the critters have already made that abundantly clear. But somehow she remains clueless. At least where I’m concerned. Why, you say?
Well, for example, I’ve been sitting here patiently in front of the Kuerig all flipping morning, asking for a cup of coffee. But she doesn’t get it. I think that’s unfair. I have a constitutional RIGHT to the purrsuit of happiness, and I’ve been purrsuing coffee all morning and she just helps herself to a cup the size of Texas, and I have to lick whatever drippings the Kuerig leaves behind. I am not pleased. Time to get a refund.
Okay, now that I’ve got that off my furry little chest, I think I’d better introduce you to some fabulous felines (not as fabulous as me, sorry)- before my frustration boils over and I scratch her to ribbons. Then I’ll be grounded (no pun intended) from treats too. She’s so clueless.
Thanks for stopping by!
