A Beautiful Spring Day

What a pawsome morning!

Finally! A Spring Morning that is sunny and warm!

Oh how pawsome it was- finally no rain, and it even felt warmer. I went out to scratch my claws and listen to the serenading birds that sing every morning and I loved it so much I didn’t want to go inside!

I didn’t feel very energetic, because yesterday my tummy was bothering me, but I went out anyhow and am so glad I did! Actually, my tummy is still bothering me today, so I wrote a note to myself to yowl loudly to communicate to my human that I need special attention today. You should try it sometime. It works like a charm!



Since the Can Opener was busy making breakfast for the critters, I decided to guard the backyard from any stray dogs (or other cats), or even bugs that would try to go after my humans. The Tiny One REALLY doesn’t like bugs. I didn’t see any bugs that early, but believe me, if there’s one within 10 miles, the Tiny One will discover it and alert the whole world loud enough for them to hear her in Hong Kong. No wonder the human needs so much coffee to get through the day!

Anyway, after a while of enjoying basking in the warm sunshine, I decided the coast was clear of bugs (long enough for me to go get a nap). It’s exhausting work examining every little movement outside to make sure it’s not something that will scare or bite the Tiny One.

When I came inside I discovered a trail of treats waiting for me to hunt them down! What a treasure! Exhausted though I was, I got to work right away- (after visiting my food dish for a few minutes to make sure the offering was acceptable).

That was a really fun discovery- unfortunately I found and ate them all way too soon and then couldn’t find anymore. Oh well. Must mean it’s time for another nap! I hope next time she makes the treats bigger!

Finally! Some Sunshine!

No rain – cold, but sunny! Birds Everywhere!

It’s a cat’s dream come true after such a long, boring, dreary winter! I can finally go outside without getting showered, pelted with hail, or getting muddy paws. Of course, although I love it- (dry, warm grass and pavement under my paws instead of mud), It does sort of cramp my style.

See, I really hate to disappoint my Can Opener by not leaving my cute, muddy paw prints all over the floors when I come inside- she enjoys it so much, and she says it gives the kitchen “personality.” She also just loves it when I spread my beautiful white fur all over everything the instant she pets me.

In fact, she doesn’t even have to pet me to see my fur fly through the air. Because I have a built in “auto deposit” system. All I have to do is walk into the room and it makes my fur fly. I know she really appreciates this. Bless her heart, it takes no effort at all on my part (because of my exclusive built in distribution system)- but she thinks I work hard day and night to make sure she won’t be disappointed. It would be tragic to let her down.

But for today, I’m going to enjoy my sunny skies and dry yard- there’s a hummingbird that’s been teasing me all week long, and today I’m going to look up the little guy and let him know how much I appreciate him brightening my rainy days by hovering under the living room window where I sit to drool over the ducks. I just may invite him to dinner.

After all, the rain will be back tonight, and then I can leave my human some fresh muddy pawprints again to let her know before she goes to bed tonight that I still love her and I haven’t forgotten how much she likes them.

She’ll be so thrilled.
