Always Complaining

Kitties, if it isn't one complaint it's another.

So last night as I laid there in a catloaf exactly and precisely  next to her head, my right foot accidentally slipped into her ear.  I kept my claws tightly up into my paw, and she admitted my footie was as soft as eiderdown.  So, the problem is what, Mom?

After a few minutes I withdrew it to tuck it back under me in my sleeping loaf position, but it slipped out and headed straight into the ear well again. No claws mind, and warm and soft.  The added benefit of my snoring into said fur stuffed ear sealed the deal I would have thought.  But no.  Where's the gratitude?  Where's the love?  She turned her HEAD!  My footie slid out and I was forced to tuck it back under me again.

I may have to reconsider my gifts.  She said she sleeps less soundly since I have joined her at night by roosting on her pillow smack up against her head.  And yet, she says it is so sweet to hear the purring right against her head. Make up your MIND, Woman.

Whiskers and teefs

Kitties, I sure like to tickle mom with my whiskers in the night.  I know she loves it.  Right Mom?  And a nice wet nosey to the ear is the topper!

Look who mommy saw this morning at the civic center track.  A 13 year old ginger girl in a HARNESS and lead!  And her woofie brofur Smokey.


Her mom said that the harness stole Mitzi's bones though so she carried her when walking.

There were all three resting on a bench and mom asked permission to take pictures.  Not of the mom but her shoes are showing there.




Mitzi came straight to mommy as she knelt to adore her in her pink harness.  Mom had to remember her manners and include Smoky but she kept petting sweet Mitzi.  Her mom was readying to drive to Texas...Ft. Worth she said.  Said she'd sold her house and was living in a motel till she felt like driving that distance.  A bit under the weather she stated.

Here is the tulip and another that mommy took a picture of.  The pink one was suitable for me to hop into.  Heeeee.


See? Enough room for me.

Tuxie Tuesday

Kitties, Just popping in to say hello and send Tuxie smoochies out to all of you.





I'm just resting here with mom's gardening clogs.  I may wear them if she doesn't use them soon.


Fanks yoo Mariodacat.  xoxo
Mommy took the picture yesterday and Mario popped me into mommy's pink tulip.  xxx

Sunday Morning Leisure

Kitties, nothing like a round with your candy cane!




I think I may try out my other candy cane too.  My Boomie gave me these.

GOOD GRIEF MOM!

Is there no end????  When did the earth tilt on its axis?  Good grief!!! Sheesh, Mom.  First Ringo...now Greta.  5 months old and all 26 pounds of her!  Man....


I hear you say you can't control who takes a walk up there where you do, but do you have to stop and exchange pleasantries?  I happen to KNOW via an ebil squirrel who tattled that you walked at least twice around with....RINGO and his Dad yesterday.  Now Greta!

Is Everybody READY?

The Bacon Harvest is this Saturday.  I hope everyone is ready.  *I* am.  I hope we get to eat part of what we help harvest!

Meanwhile, I am parking right next to mom's ear every night just about--- but I have not put my snooter in there.  Just next to it.

She didn't think I was awake when talking to my other favorite brovver in NC over the Mountains but I was.  And Kitties, I heard him invite her there for a couple of weekends from now.  That means I will be A-L-O-N-E!!!! I can't sleep alone, Kitties. I need her warmth, her ear, her scritchies, her brushies, extra treats, her lap, smoochies, petting...playing with Stringy! She doesn't talk to me much but I do like to hear her voice when she does.  How am I supposed to see my baby shows if she isn't here to turn them on? Who can I take Donkey and my Floppy Mousie to at night?

I won't have my regular sitter as she is very ill with intractable vertigo.  The alternate said she is taking no business because she is expecting the arrival of her first grandchild in that time.  Mom called and asked my Vet Tech Tiffany if she could sit for me and she agreed to do that.  She is coming to do my manicure Tuesday, so mommy has my particulars ready for her and a spare key.

Kitties, I will be very lonely.  Really.


pee ess...a reminder that I have a Rainbow Page here on my bloggie.  I don't forget my friends and I put them where we can all visit and love them whenever we want to when I make room on the sidebar for other sweet babies who have flown away. Those babies are in their own page.

NOW what, Mom?

Kitties, it was after bed time and mom was getting things ready for going to bed.  She wondered where I was but thought perhaps I was patrolling in the kitchen window.  She got her do rag on so I won't eat her hair, and then she went over to turn on the little white noise machine.  That's when she found me.  I was perched atop her knee pillow.  That one she puts under her knees that helps with back pain.  It was stacked atop a spare pillow.  I have never perched there till last night.



These were taken in a dark bedroom.  Mom tried to lighten them.



She turned and went to the bed and took MY pillow from the other side and used it!  I came to bed then, and saw what she had done.  I stood there in the empty space that had contained MY pillow and looked at her steadily.  She got the message and threw back the covers, climbed down and went over to get HER knee pillow and put MY pillow back where it belonged.  Of course I was all put out about it.  She grumbled she didn't care to get up after getting settled in and covered.  Hey, it's my home! I do as I please.

New Methods in My Repertoire

Kitties!  Several nights ago, I had slipped up to behind mom's pillow and went to sleep.  She already was asleep .  Then, becoming lonely in the middle of the night, I oozed down (her word, certainly not mine) and slid into place with my face right at her left ear.  So, I stuck my snooter into her ear.  That woke her up.  She  told Mario she could certainly hear my breathing very well, feel my whiskers sticking and tickling and worse she claims, the sound of me licking my lips.  I always lick them twice.  It's a Katie habit.

So there I was, snooter in her ear, breathing, licking my lips and everything, thinking she should be honored.  She laid there and so I became emboldened and I took both paws and placed them on either side of her ear.  I began kneading.  She let me knead several minutes and when it seemed I was not going to go to sleep anytime soon, she did something she never does.  She pulled the covers back and rose from the bed.  She went into the bathroom though there was no need-- and she later said she'd hoped that would discourage me from staying in that position and go  to my side of the bed.

That worked Kitties.  I know when I'm not wanted so I saw her to bed and then I rose, took my leave and I did NOT come back.

So there Mom.

NO pictures of this event as she was trapped there with me until she got up.  First time she has dared to disturb me!

Oh KITTIES! Look Who Mom Found!!!!

Kitties!  Mom was looking through a deep shallow kitchen drawer for a so-called fabric shaver to shave off places where she SAYS I clawed up the fleece blankie on her bed.  (Our bed!) { I say SHE did it and is blaming me} and at the very back, against the backboard was: NEW DONKEY!  She did not remember at all that she had managed to get the last two Donkeys there at the Donkey farm!  She thought she had an extra Lion.  But it's Donkey's long long LONG lost brofur!  He was in a plastic storage bag.  Look at Donkey and brother!  Biggafy to see how brave Donkey is and has been.



Loved-on  Donkey has elongated arms and legs from all the strong lovins I give him.  And he is much thinner too from having had surgery on his poor back so many times.  He isn't ready for the Rest Home yet though.  Plenty of lovins left there.  Mom said she's not sure if she should substitute my spiffy brofur occasionally or not to get me accustomed to him.


I just wanted to share my great unexpected and furry welcome news. 💗

Napping Again?

I am in here napping again.  I left my dictated transcript on my iPaw ready for mom to type.

They had a good supper of her delicious if she says so herself, meatloaf and some macaroni and cheese.  The meatloaf is not the dry brown kind.  Some folks like it that way.  Mommy and her family don't.  Green peas too.  Buttery.

*I* had some good FF Chicken with Extra Gravy!  Nommy!  I'm fuller'n a tick so I came in to lie down.  Mom said she will start the dishes in a few minutes.  Her dishwashing machine is very small and able to do the dishes quickly.  It is at the ends of her wrists.  She's never had a dishwasher except herself in all her life.

(mom here:  I opted for extra cabinet space instead).

I'm glad I am a spoiled rotten little girlcat because it is raining continually here and I don't have to get a drop of rain on my furs.  I go from bed to bed napping along the way from the exertion,  then I have something to eat,  I powder my gorgeous wee little nose and nap again.  What's not to love?

No More Bonks



Kitty's, I am not getting bonked any longer.  She has learned to look before she reaches.  The brace IS helping.  Mom doesn't have near the pain she did have.  That's good.

Brovver was here for overnight till yesterday at noon,  Here I am, missing him.  He left that spare bed just a few hours prior to mom finding me.







 He was here when I first came home.  To me, he belongs here so when he goes I miss him as it seems he should always be here.  I'll have to tell him that.  Maybe he will change where he lives.

Going to busier than hen's teeth around here this week and that means  all week long.  Mom hopes she can get some workouts and walks in.

Bonk on the Head

Mom's new best friend!  And she also said that she is sorry she took over mostly because she wanted a sounding board.  My blog is and always has been mine  She has her OWN!  I think I'll lay a bitey on her!


it's upside down here

She went to the Dr. a few days ago with nothing but a list of muscle complaints.  All on the left side..left foot, ankle, calf, shin, hamstring--- all cramping and not related to potassium.  It may stem from having had that lollapalooza attack of sciatica Oct. 2015.  That lasted several months until it finally faded.  I know because I had to keep helping her constantly.  Nerve pain is horrid and Dr. said it may ultimately have affected the muscle on that side of her body. She's upping the magnesium per her human vet.

BUT after they talked about that, she mentioned in passing that she had lightening bolt pain in her hand when using it and slightly up into her forearm plus numbness, intense pain in the night that wakes her up and dropping things.  He said that's not neuropathy as she was wondering...that's Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. He said to start with the wrist brace and I'm telling you, it helps!!!  She only wears it to bed--- but that where the head bonks come in.  She bonks my head accidentally with that hard thing at night when I climb up to roost on her. She automatically reaches with both hands to begin scritches and petting and WHAM!  I get bonked on the head.  Over and over.  I think I need the Union.


I may sue.   Who wants a dear and sweet little girl?  I may have to advertise for a new mom or dad.
