Talk and Eating

Now that mom can hear what I have to say, I've been talking up a storm...especially when I'm hungry and she isn't feeding me on my preferred schedule.  Which, BTW, is eight small meals a day.  Wow, do I ever have her wrapped around my little toe.

Occasionally she's tried giving me twice as much food, thinking she'll feed me four times a day instead of eight.  But I just eat it all in one sitting and on my next scheduled feeding I'm just as hungry as if she'd fed me half as much last time.  So she doesn't do that anymore.

Mom's got my number, and I've got hers.  She's my slave.  But what else is she going to do with her life, now that she's a retiree?  I'm keeping her active.

Neither mom nor I have anything to say this weekend.

Just chillin' on mom's favorite place to be.

In Training

Today is the first day of my training be a toilet-trained cat.

Purportedly, in between 2 to 4 months, I will be trained to do my business in the toilet, instead of using a litter box. 

I've been led to understand there will be treats doled out to me at certain points in the program, as I grasp the incremental changes and make them operational.

This is a step-by-step program and my mission is to accomplish each step before moving on to the next.

The very first change is that mom moved my litter box to the side of the bathroom where the toilet is.  Actually, she did this without my yet being aware of it, as I'm currently looking out the window and haven't been into the loo since before she shifted things around.  I suspect I'm in for a big surprise.

We'll just take things a step at a time, one day at a time...and we'll subsequently see just how malleable I am, whether it is possible to teach an old cat new tricks.

Even Distribution

My latest haunt ~ the little table in our "front" room, aka living room, sleeping cave, kitchen, small studio.  This room is where I spend half my time, give or take.  I want to make sure my cat hairs are evenly distributed throughout the room.

Hangin' on mom's lap earlier this week.  It looks like my irises are different colors, but they're not; just a trick of the light.

We've had rain, and the temps are down at early-winter levels, 50s during the day, 40 or so at night.

Otherwise, no news is good news.

Don't forget to set your clocks back tonight, if you're in the States!

Purrs and meows,

The most recent picture of me from mom's phone.  I'm looking kinda snarky, but I really don't feel that way.  I just don't appreciate having the camera thrust in my face at odd times.  But, so be it.  This is life with my mom.

Happy Hallowe'en!

Fall Evenings

My mug, the other evening, in my spot on mom's lap, spending precious time together enjoying the fall evenings.  Our fave time of day, our fave time of year.  All is good at Rose Cottage.
