Aftermath of Mom's Visit Away

Mom here:  When I got back, Katie was beside herself for lots of lovins right away.  Of course she got them.  I brought a lot of stuff in and we had some more lovins.  But much later when we went to bed, that was when I saw how much she missed me even though I was only gone from Friday at  9 in the morning till Sunday at 3 in the afternoon.  She had that little girl kitten sound in her talking to me as she walked up the bed to my face. I haven't heard that in a long time.  I had turned the light out so she knew it was sleep time.

She came up parallel to my head, put her paw out to pat my face and then laid down with her head sharing my pillow.  We were face to face.  I heard her extremely loud purring, felt the brush of whiskers occasionally and a cold wet nose on mine more than once.   After a while she did get up and came back with that little girl cat mewing.  When she did, she laid her head next to mine again and  later went away several more times, mewing on return to lay her little head next to mine.

She never moved after those short away times and after that she and I slept deeply.  She had brought four of her favorite toys when she had gone away for a minute each time.  You know which ones they were.  Her announcement was made  for each toy with those tiny mews.

She has slept up by my face sharing my pillow every night and with her body next to my chest trying to make up for that small absence she endured.

I am honored by her love and I return it to her but I worry that she is going to be sad if I am gone a little longer.  When I had surgery she had her favorite brother with her before, during and after.  But mom is the one that she wants to complete her world.

Maybe now, I can begin to be gone more often and let her have her favorite sitter.  I think it would be good for her.  What with illness in the household and family for 5 years I didn't go anywhere much at all. So she always had me handy. That was my choice and a loving one.   So  she got out of the habit of living without me for visits elsewhere
.  Apparently it is at night that she misses me the most.  I worry about her being sad--- if she is.

Katie will return tomorrow.  I hope you don't mind me filling in for her.  She's busy absorbing heat at the vent.

Good Grief!

Good Grief Kitties, finally she hauls her sorry heiny back to where it belongs.  Here.  In a chair and me on her lap.

I peed (very small contribution)  in the tubby once...I horked on my white and very pretty and soft knitted fringed throw.  I scattered litter.  I refused to eat much and I was inhospitable Friday night to Gina my sitter.  I did relent afterward as all of my company were here and I needed to make a good impression.

She dared say she had the best time EVER!  EVER, kitties!  Yes, EVER.  She walked into and to and from store after store after store after store and enjoyed every square inch of the places she went to ...  from 0930 till 1600.  They went to the house and stayed stayed a little bit of time.  Long enough to eat.  Other favorite brovver fixed grilled chicken, steamed green beans and a big baked 'tater.  Then durned if they didn't go back out again into the evening to go to another girly place mommy wanted to go.  Brovver was so good  He hauled her everywhere and never complained and went in with her each time.

Mom marveled at what a difference since her surgery.

But hers  is home and cleaning up after the pawty times we had.  Last one to go was Austin who helped tidy up.  We took turns using my monocle too  He looked very distinguished when he took a turn.  Here it is in case you forgot I had one the first time I showed you.  Austin looked SO good.  Spiffy.  Well turned out.

I say, old bean.  Have a spot of tea?

'Bandoned...Alones....Left to Droop on the Vine....

Kitties,  Mom is headed over the mountains after compulsive constant checking on the weather here, over the mountains and there--- and back again.  She hopes not to have to contend with snow and that is a distinct possibility regardless of what the weather guessers predict.  So, she'll abandon me with gritted teeth and worry about that till she gets back where she belongs.  With me.

Anyone who wishes is very welcome to  come over to stay with me while she's gone so I won't be alone and 'bandoned.   I went to the kitty fuds place  on-line and ordered up a a BIG box full  of Temptations and Party Mix to be overnighted here in all the flavors for our dessert.  I  already have a cabinet full of FF foods as well as that food with the initials RC.  In 6 flavors! And I have two kinds of dry foods. There are several big beds to sleep on with premium sheets to rumple and dive into and the softest of comforters to nestle in while snoozing.    There is someone coming in 2 times a day to open cans for us.  Never worry!  And wall to wall carpet everywhere to dig into!!

And I have good litter to scatter everywhere you want.  I have tuna juice straight outta the can...water packed, for your enjoyment.  The "facilities" are clean and I have several guest accommodations .  I insisted on that.

No RSVP needed.  Point your tunnels, cubes, tents  or Ess's in this direction and Katie's Place.  I'll turn all the lights on so you'll see them.  Cat Milk for the kittens & for the Ladycats and ManCats, Niptini's and Bacon Beer.

We can watch our shows! 

Looking for your company...meowing the way.

I have even MORE toys for us to play with

Who wants to snuggle with me?

I brought my favorite toys in for you. Even LION! 

Plenty of room on this beddie with soft comforter and another beddie too.

My Goodness...

Kitties, I lost a lot of followers now that Google did what they did with comments and friends. *sad ears*  I wish that were not so because I don't know which ones so I can go see them anyway.

I am snoopervising from the heat vent.  We are waiting on a friend of Mom's to get here shortly.  I'm just resting up waiting.

Mom posted a video to Face Book at least.  Now, I had the guiding paw of someone else with a MAC who tried to help me do a video on the blog, but when I tried to upload a video from my phone to here as was indicated to do...I got a message saying I could not.  So Katie went to Face Book and tried there. I did use the video icon here on blogger..it gave me a choice of uploading from the phone and when I tried, it was as I mentioned a total no from Google.  Oner kitty said my iPhone 5 may be too old?

I'm fixing to get an iPhone 6s.

We had a day to love yesterday.  64 degrees where I happen to live.  I think the nearest big city got to 62.  Today is supposed to be warmer and if so, I will be at the front door again looking out and guarding against peeing Gingers!  I hope there are sunpuddles as there were yesterday.  So far, it doesn't look good.

All of your Sunday Selfies are fabulous.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties, sorry to get mushy again but I am thankful for my mom.

She treats me so lovingly when she is at home that all I have to do is see her approaching and I begin purring.  If she reaches where I am and starts leaning forward, I purr harder and harder.  I so love when she kisses my soft cheek over and over at least four times.  I close my eyes, my whole Katie body is like water flowing I am so relaxed just from her being there.

Since I came to be with Mommy, I have had nothing but love in my home.  Yes, she has spoken loudly to me on occasions when I claw where I am not supposed to. That's when I hear that word "No"!

I always look very tiny when she does that and I make a tiny sound that makes mom feel terrible.  BUT I stop the clawing.  That hardly happens and even though it does. I love mom with all my heart.  Just saying'.

Sleeping in Other Places! Too Bad Mommy.

Well, I have taken to sleeping on the other side of mommy.  Actually filling MY side of the bed.  I won't lay up against her chest the way I did for so long.  OR, I head on down to her feet.  Then back to her back where I do put my feets against her through the blanket on the bed.  Don't know why I am not snuggling.  It's cold.  Sometimes I do try to get her off to sleep laying up against her chest for a couple of minutes.  I purr really hard and I'll wash her fingers when they stray near my mouth in the dark as she's petting me.  Then it's up UP and AWAAAAAAAY!

I did my thing this morning.  She fed me my favorite wet food and my usual dry and fresh water.  I ate half the wet and then,  what else...I went into the living room and horked on the couch arm, all down the couch arm to cover the fabric to the floor, onto the pretty wooden end table and the finally,
the carpet.

Of course this required her placing the big table lamp on the sofa and moving the table out and start cleaning.  THEN she got to go pour her coffee.  Usually I do all this just as she pours.  She got a break from that part today.

Soon we'll be headed on in to bed but I will walk around her head a few times, flop in the half moon area she carves out for me while she is on her side and then, lights out and off I go.  I'm busy.  Places to go, Kitties to see. I think Dai$y may come over and we will pool our resources and get some beautiful necklaces.

So, I'm not sure which mancat I will see first tonight.

The Triumvirate.  S'trewth.
