The Prince and The Pea

Nothing is quite as nice to snooze on than a pile of art quilts.
Take it from me.

All Over It

There was something about this book that just drove me insane.  Soon as mom would pick the book up to read, my senses went on high alert ~ my head shot up from a nap, my nose scanned the air for the scent, I dove into mom's lap and spent as much time as I could, before being amply chided, between the dust jacket and the book itself.  Something had been in there, something unbelievably beguiling.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.  Mom loved the book, too.

Making Art...

...or thinking about it anyway, while hanging out on mom's studio table.  I was inspired by the Siamese cat in the picture above, included in a collage in mom's art journal.  I'm arty too!!

Favorite Time of Year

I'm in heaven -- it's my favorite time of year.  Sunny days to lay in the window soaking up the rays.  Cool evenings to cuddle up to mom in bed.  It doesn't get much better than this.

Rain on the Way

Mom takes photos of me virtually all the time but then has the audacity to not post them here to my blog on a regular basis.  For shame, mumsie!  So I cajoled her into posting all the recent images of me that she's been hoarding in her New Uploads folder.  This first photo was...I don't know, maybe a couple weeks ago.

This one was last week.  I've taken to drinking water out of her painting studio supply when, and only when, I am certain it hasn't been contaminated with paint!
A while ago, here..."helping" mom iron her aloha shirts.  Looking devious.

As we speak I am looking out the west window watching the sky cloud up.  There's heavy rain in the forecast for the North Coast, beginning late tonight.  The sky was clear when we woke up this morning, but those telltale high white clouds on the edge of the front have begun to cover the sky.

Have a good weekend, catfans!  Purrs and meows from Beeg.

This is me...yesterday.

So, on to housekeeping ~ mom asked me to let you know that at some unknown point in the supposedly not-too-distant future, Feedburner, from whom most of you get the feed to my blog, will disappear.  Mom has a list of those of you who are getting the feed by email, and when Feedburner exits the scene, she'll start emailing you my posts directly.  Hopefully we'll know in advance, but we're not holding our breath on that one.  At any rate, you might want to subscribe to me via Bloglovin', for which there's a link on my sidebar just to the right.  You can continue to read me in Bloglovin's reader OR get emailed feeds through them as well.  Or you can do nothing, and mom will take care of things when the time comes.

At the rate I'm going, we'll be well into autumn before you hear from me again.  So, at this time of being very near the cusp, enjoy the segue.

Howz It?

Mr. Beautiful here, enjoying a sunny afternoon in July.  Hope you're having a wonderful summer.  We are...yet still, eagerly awaiting autumn, our fave season.

Cats in Boxes

Celebrating July 4th hanging out in an empty box on mom's studio shelf.  
I'm in cat heaven ~ the heaven-on-earth kind of heaven...not the other one.

Earlier This Month...

We have a narrow table under the window in the front room.  Mom calls it her staging table ~ it's kind of like her desk, actually.

The table is a short leap from the back of our couch so I often like to exercise my power to be airborne and jump on over there...usually crashing into the wall in the process.

I've been known to climb up my scratching post, though, to get to the table.  And once I'm there, I love to pull all the pins out of that little covered piece of bulletin board.  Never a dull moment around here.

Happy Birthday to Me!

For my birthday in May, I had myself a drink...of water.  It's hell getting older (although I'm just 10) -- I've become such a teatotaller (never been anything but, actually).

Life's been good.  I've been too lazy to write ~ you'll have to forgive me.  We keep to ourselves mostly, and don't have anything to say, anyhow.  Ah, the quiet charmed life.

Napping in Sunbeams

My favorite place to snooze -- on piles of fabric.  Pardon my inattentiveness while I settle down to a nap.

Time Flies

Egad, time has flown.  I don't know where the last month went.

I've been sleeping a lot (although not any more than my usual 16 or so hours a day -- normal for us felines), watching mom garden outside, hanging out with mom whenever she's on the other words, meditating, purring, and soaking up the love. 

It's been a pretty mild early spring so far.  The next several days will bring rain, though.  We need it, we always need it.

It's my birthday right about now -- we're not exactly sure when, but we know it's in the spring.  I'm 10 this year.  In November it'll be 9 years that I've been with mom. 

I was a stray before I found mom.  My early people abandoned me and I started hanging out in mom's backyard when she lived in Eureka.  I was attracted by Aja and Grayson, mom's two other cats at the time.  I knew this was a cat-friendly home, so I set my sights on becoming part of the family.
I've been mom's one-and-only since late 2006.  She thought that after a couple years with just her and me, possibly she would adopt a girl kitty for me.  But we enjoyed our time alone so much that that never happened.  And then there was the Kirby fiasco a few years ago.  And now our home is too small for another cat.  But mostly we're just really happy being alone together, our own version of two peas in a and BeeGee.

I Have a Plan

I like to get mom miffed sometimes -- it's all part of my plan. 

The thing that I do that drives her the craziest is playing (or trying to play) with the threads she binds her books with, while she's binding said books.  She becomes bitchy and bossy, she chides me, she physically lifts me off her worktable and places me on the floor just so I can jump back up on the table again.

So last night she was binding a book with, would you believe it, eight needles and eight separate threads.  Wow, that was sheer heaven to me.  I was beside myself, I just couldn't NOT attack those threads.  Mom was not a happy camper.

The plan part of this is that afterwards mom feels so guilty for raising her voice at me that she is even more lovey dovey than usual, and spends the rest of the evening apologizing to me.  Hah!  I should be apologizing to her!

I can be a devil when I want to be -- I'm that sure of mom's forever love and unconditional acceptance of me.  So I try not to be, any more than necessary to keep mom on her toes!

Warm and Fuzzy

Yeah, yeah, I know the photo is a bit out of focus.  We decided we liked it anyhow.  It actually makes me look a tad thinner than I really am.

Happy January everybody!  I've been cruising into the new year feeling playful and happy.  What could possibly go wrong in a "13" year?  It's a lucky number and we've got all our respective fingers and toes crossed for good things to come.

Hope your new year is off to a good start, and hope the year blossoms into a good one for all of us.
