Helping Mom

Kitties!  I help mom every single day.  As soon as I hear the bathroom light come on and the sound of makeup stuffs being put out early in the morning, I speed into the bathroom and take up my position on the tub edge to assist her putting on her makeup and to get her hair arranged, combed and made pretty.

She couldn't do  it without me, trust me on that.  I believe she exaggerates the noise getting her things out so that I will be sure to hear it and come in to assist.  All she has to do is reach toward the right side and there I am...ready to be petted and told she loves me.  Her hand goes down to me every minute or so even if just for a pat.  That's my assurance that she is following my silent instruction,

When she is finished, she takes time to just stay a few minutes and pet me a lot and give up some smooches so that I will know what a good girl I have been. Then she goes on off to work out and have coffee with friends and do some shopping if necessary.  She told me that in a few weeks it will cease being so grindingly hot and humid and that means she'll go off to get a couple of miles in before getting home.  I was used to it before all the drama started here with her surgery last year but hers all betters now.  I'll get used to it again.

Here I am.

Remembrance Day

Thank you Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey's Cat Chronicles for the beautiful Remembrance Day badge for our loved ones who have gone on before .

I am thinking of the Admiral.  I came to take up looking after momma when Admiral sailed off to the Bridge.  It took Admiral a few weeks to find just the right kitty for mommy...me.  But Admiral engineered that and we have been happy since we met.

Mom remembers Admiral, aka Lady Bianca, all of the time but with smiles (mostly through tears sometimes).  Our moms and dads really love us.  Just as much as we do them.  Unswerving and unconditional and true.

Yikes! Fangs!

Kitties, once again as I was innocently lounging on the floor watching television close to bedtime mom snapped a picture of me all defenseless and unsuspecting.  That is so wrong on every level.  I wish I could do that to her...oh, the fireworks if I did!!!

Leo, look!  Fangs! 

See?  I'm not too too chubby.

New Kitty for an old Friend.

Kitties, I know this  does not look good but I copied and pasted from Face Book.  Ann Lignon, mom to Kassey who flew to the Rainbow Bridge a year ago, texted me and said she has a new baby. Her name is Padma. That was her name when Ann got her. from the shelter.  She wanted to re-name her Lily, but Padma is the one she answers to. She is all white except for her head, and was born without  back paws. Ann took her to keep the worst from happening to her within several days. She is a foster girl (young) but Ann will keep her always until if and when she can't. I am so happy she has another sweet kitty now.

Ann said she could get up onto things pretty well right now.  I hope that continues.  





I hope you like the update on one of our fellow CB pawrents who has been through a very sad time.

Furriday

Good Meowning Kitties and Woofies.

Favorite brovver is here so I have been playing with him and enjoying snuggles aplenty!  Yesterday I raced past him, tail all puffed out and skidded to a stop at the doorway to the guest room.  I looked back over my shoulder and he obeyed me without question.  We went in and had a lie-down on the bed  for a good half hour!  Has he learned?  Yes, I guess.

Mom managed to take a few pictures in the morning fog over the river on the way to The Big City yesterday.  Here's one in black and white for you if you like.

See the fog band and the sky/hillreflection?

She Bought Me This! Extra LARGE!

Kitties,  I have to say it took me about four minutes to try out this new litter box.  My old one was a bit smelly no matter the cleaning, as the plastic was claw scratched heavily for the several years I have had it, as I scratched the litter around.  When there are scratches, it's hard to get the pan pristine again.  So she bought another.  I love it.  There is a hood as I stand up to pee, but no door.  Mom took that atrocity off in the parking lot.

See?  But there IS a word I don't like *grumble grumble growl*   whispers  LARGE!  JUMBO!!!


HUMPH!  Chats de GRANDE????  Say WHAT???

Features, as I show you around my place.

The pet food store gave me this!!!

Goodness She is Slow

Kitties!  Mom is not sick.  I only wanted to talk about us kitties as nurses employed by business.  We'd be a smash hit.

Meanwhile, mom took a LONG time to figure this out  I get on her lap and fall asleep.  She thought all the times when I woke up and got off her lap to lie on the floor I was just being a little so and so.  Today, I got up after 45 minutes or so and laid on the floor.  She got up and made lunch  Then, she saw me in my recliner.  One plus one...it usually equals two!  She has observed often enough by now I woulda thought, that as soon as she gets up..I assume my proper place in my recliner to watch horse operas.  FINALLY dawned on her.  Get up...get out...let me in.  Simple.  Took long enough.

Maybe she will learn from this.
