i’m not the only cute kitty around
as hard as that is to believe!
there are lots of pictures to Awww about on Monday
go see some more at Awww… Mondays
(and it’s not just about cats)
it’ll make this Monday a better one if you do.
can you see me?
i am hiding from Mama.
hiding in plain sight.
this is fun!
i am playing with Feline Friday folks. go see what the other cats are up to. now scat!
it’s Feline Friday so i get to write on the ‘puter!
know what has my attention?
it came in from outside by itself.
just flew in.
i want to catch it sooooo bad!
but it only flies just so close then it buzzes off.
if i got that fly i would teach it a thing or 2 about coming into the house.
Mama says NO bugs in the house and here this fly just came in uninvited.
ps. you can see other cat posts for Feline Friday here.
it sure is good to have a chance at the computer. Mama has been doggin it all the time lately. something to do with the alphabet.
but i am here now and want to tell you about a new taste treat i had. a friend of Mama gave her some flowers. they were very pretty yellow things. i didn’t like the flower much but the water they were in was great.
of course Mama didn’t want me to drink it. something about knocking the vase over and spilling water all over. silly. i would have lapped that good tasting water right up!
i hope you are having a wonderful april. it is so nice here i am spending most of the time on the balcony. except when Mama goes to work then i have to stay in and do my work taking care of the condo.
i do a pretty good job even if Mama thinks differently. she has no taste in decorating the place.
see you next time Mama goes off somewhere and leaves the computer on.
i was thinking the other day about my Mama. she is the only mama i know.
i don’t remember my cat mama and my first people mama decided she didn’t want me.
let me tell you that story.
a man found me–that’s another story i will tell someday–and took me to the shelter.
it is a nice shelter with nice peoples who take care of animals without homes.
but nobody really wants to live their whole life in a shelter we all hope for forever homes.
after i was in the shelter for awhile a lady people came and adopted me as a present for her daughter.
this daughter people was little. nothing wrong with being little–i was pretty little myself–but this little people was scary.
i was very shy and when i went to their house i would hide places.
the little girl people wanted to hold me and squeeze me and she would chase me and drag me outta my safe place.
she was screechy,too, very loud.
with all the loud and fast moving and rough handling i was very unhappy.
long story made short.
the lady people took me back to the shelter and told them i was too shy and needed to be socialized.
(i’m still shy but can be social once i get to know new peoples.)
so there i was in a cage again. but it was okay cause at least i felt pretty safe.
then after a couple of weeks this other lady and her friends came to find her a kitty.
you see she had 2 cats that died about a year apart–1 was 16 and the other was 19–i will tell you about them someday.
this lady was so sad without a catkid–she decided she just had to have another.
as soon as she saw me she knew i was the one! and there were a lot of cats to choose from.
i wasn’t so sure bout leaving my safe cage though.
but she persisted and filled out papers and promised to take care of me
just like the other lady–but mama really meant it.
this is me the day mama adopted me.
i was in my cage and not at all sure i wanted to leave it.
mama had to pull me out of the cage!
it was the best thing that ever happened to me—really.
she loves me so much.
i’ve been with Mama ever since.
i did have a scare when she took me back to the shelter and left me there.
i thought she wasn’t coming back. but she did later that day.
i’m not sure why i was there but it had something to do with surgery.
mama says i don’t need what they surgeryed anyway
and since i don’t miss whatever it was that was surgeryed i guess she is right.
so that’s my story. i have a forever home and a for always mama.
now if you will excuse me it’s time for my nap.
oh, listen, if you need a kitty go to a shelter and get one.
you won’t be sorry.
unless maybe you have a brat–umm– young child that needs some training in pet love.
then you should wait until the kid learns how to behave.
just a thought.
Mama says i am in the dog house.
we don’t have a dog so we don’t have a house for one. so tell me how can i be in it?
all i know is that Mama is not happy.
it’ is all because of our flowers. oh, excuse me! her flowers.
remember when we planted these?
i thought they were delicious!
we i am not supposed to eat them. she doesn’t eat flowers. her loss.
so she took out the ones that i left for later–i like the flowers best so i like to wait for them to bloom and get tasty.
she planted some new ones–very pretty they are.
i just don’t get it. salad bars are for eating. so why would Mama plant a salad bar if not for me to eat it?
just waiting around in the kitchen.
Mama has something in the oven and it smells pretty interesting.
i think it’s ready. i’ve been a good boy.
what? i’m not supposed to be on the counter?
well, i guess i forgot.
Mama doesn’t ever stay mad at me.
she knows forgiveness is part of love.
she loves me lots.
