Space Case

I just took a look at my blog and realized that Mom uploaded the last photo twice -- the other day and a few posts ago! What a space case she is! But I love her dearly!

So here's a different pic of me, in case you were wondering why I look the same all the time!

Have a great weekend, catfans! Ciao meow!

Weekly Check In

I'd like to be posting more often than weekly, but Mom's been awfully busy and obviously my blog just isn't all that important to her right now! That's right, I'm going to blame it all on her!

My Aunt Vicky and Uncle Pat came for a visit last Saturday, and what did I do? -- I hid under the bed! "Under The Bed" is my security blanket, of sorts. Nobody bothers me there, and that's just how I like it.

Let's see...the TV report. We finished watching Six Feet Under. We enjoyed it immensely. Great characters, great story line. Mom said we'd collapsed five years into three weeks, which is how long it took us to watch all five seasons. Now Mom's in withdrawal from it. We haven't glommed onto anything else meaty to watch yet. Which I guess is why she has time to write this post for me tonight!

Other than that, it's sleep-sleep-sleep for me, relax, stretch, graze at the food bowl, more sleep. Ahhhh, what a life!

Later babies! Ciao meow!

Feelin' Groovey

I was going to label this post "Feelin' Guilty," but Mom just convinced me that I don't need to be guilty for writing so seldom these days. It's summertime, and everybody's on holiday. Me too!

But right now I'm sitting here with Mom as she works on the computer, and she said I could check in and say hi. So, Hi!

My allergic dermatitis has really been acting up, as it usually does during the warm months -- although you could hardly call the weather here warm...I spend every day on the down duvet on the bed, trying to stay cozy during this particularly damp and gloomy summer we're having. Oh well, what's a cat to do!

Back to my delicate condition, Mom remembered the other day that the vet told her she could give me a certain kind of antihistamine twice a day, which really helps with the itchy skin. So things are a little better right now since I'm back on my "medication." What I take is called Chlor tabs, it's chlorpheniramine, as opposed to the benedryl type of antihistamines. Mom gives me a 4 mg tab twice a day, and taking the pills doesn't even bother me that much. What a good patient I am! Whatever works, I say.

Well, catch y'all later...ciao meow!

My & My Bunny

This is me with Mom's sleeping bunny. Bunny makes her shoulders feel more relaxed when she sleeps on her side. Bunny is also my favorite soft thing to knead my little paws on. I like that Mom and I both get comfort from this furry stuffed creature.

So, I'm thinking that my vibing has worked, because that orange kitty hasn't been around again. I'm keeping my toes crossed...

That's it for now, just a short post to say Hi!

Ciao meow!

I had a visitor outside today -- I could only see him through the window -- a beautiful, really friendly orange tabby cat. He came right up to the backdoor, he let both Mom and Dad pet him. And when Mom came home for a few minutes midday, he was under Dad's truck.

Dad thinks he's probably the new neighbors' cat. I already know what Mom's thinking, though ~ if he hangs around and turns out not to have a home, she'll want to adopt him! Geez, I've got to nip this in the bud before it gets off the ground.

This is MY house, my turf. This house is too small for more than one feline, and I'm the one! I'll just vibe that kitty back to wherever he came from!

That's all for now...ciao meow!

What's New?

Busy week...I've been shepherding Mom through the Facebook setup process. Why she thinks I know anything about this, beats me. She's pretty well got it, but I've spent alot of time here on the desk while she fiddles around on the computer. Mom says if you want to check her out there, follow this link.

Well, we finished off with Inspector Lynley, now we're watching Six Feet Under. Mom watched this religiously when it was first on HBO but Dad's never seen it before. We're into Season 2 now.

The folks are talking about getting a bigger bed, like that's going to make a difference where I'm concerned! I think it's more like, they'd really like to sleep together again, regardless of what I do, and the double bed that worked for them when they were each solo isn't really big enough for them to sleep comfortably together. Meanwhile, though, things are as they have been, and I've been getting in a lot of face time with Mom, me sleeping on her chest with my face not far from hers!

Talk soon, catfans! Ciao meow!

Laid Low Last Night

Because I was under the bed most of last night -- due to the frightening fireworks outside -- this photo is from another recent time. But last night, I was into deep, dark territory under the bed, in fact, Dad couldn't find me at all and imagined that I had vanished into thin air!

I couldn't be coaxed out for all the tea in China. After things quieted down outside, though, I crept out and slept with Mom on the couch. The cool thing is that the bedroom door was open all night but I didn't bother Dad once!

Now I'm sitting on the windowsill in the office and Mom's typing while I'm dictating this post.

I've lost count, now, on how long I've been in the house -- since the harness fiasco. Who cares, anyway? I'm happy as a clam.

So, another lazy Sunday for me. Although I expect Mom will be at the studio. She's rarely lazy, got to hand it to her. As long as she doesn't expect me to pull any weight, I'm okay!

Have a good one, cat fans...ciao meow!
