I'm Zawstid

I'm zawstid Kitties and woofies.  I was up half the night playing the harp on the mini blinds in the spare bedroom.  I know my brother is going to love my persistent efforts when he goes to bed in there tonight. I hop up on the bed, reach over to the window where mom has some plants wintering...then I reach up to the closed mini blinds and start plucking rapidly.  Makes a satisfying amount of noise, makes mom shout with a joyful happiness from her bed all night..something about "stop!!!  Stop!!" I had been practicing for the night concert just before bed and she came in there to applaud several times.  She was slapping her hands together  and shouting those words again.  Must be all for my encouragement I'm sure.

So, I'm zawstid now after an encore performance this morning and I'm going to take it easy on Sunday now with my morning nap(s).  Then my brother will arrive early afternoon.  Mom is going to make him some chicken.  She'll marinate it first in a tomato, garlic and basil marinade.  Roasted taters to go with.

Have a happy snuggle Sunday dear furriends.

How thoughtful of you to provide sleeping music for your mom. No wonder you're zawstid.

Our mom still keeps the jar of pennies she used to shake. We did not like that sound and it stopped us in our tracks as soon as we heard it clanking against the thick glass.

We like your catloafing position >^=^<

M is laughing her fool head off this morning at you Katie. You are quite the entertainer she thinks. Me - well I just think you are cute and I like to give you smooches.

We don't haz blinds in the bedroom anymore, Katie. The Human says she thinks you can probably imagine why. She says curtains are quieter. *I* would appreciate hearing your concert!

Reading about that food makes the Human all drooly (kind of like our neighbor, ha ha meow!)

Beth said...

I think you deserve an award for your musical talent Katie. You know mom loves it by the way she claps her hands for you. ;-) xx

Simba said...

We guesses maybe the best default position for the miniblinds is UP! Maybe your brother can even sleep that way. Or with the door closed. (then would you rattle the door?).

Katie Isabella said...

yes, I would rattle the door and cry. I am a Princess and used to things going my way.

Marg said...

Katie, our Mom is laughing out loud just because your Mom loves your music so much. We are so glad she came in there to applaud you and let you know how much she was enjoying the concert. And now you are all practiced up for the brother.Have a great one all of you.

Jo's World said...

Did you take lessons in making music with blinds? I don't think our Mom would be using her hands to applaud you!

Kisses,
Stella, Jo and Zkhat

Nerissa said...

What a true artist you are... rehearsing and rehearing like that. You will give another performance tonight, will you not? One specially for your brother?

Katnip Lounge said...

The heck with the kitty who plays piano...HARP is a lot harder! Brava!

Carolyn said...

What a virtuoso you are Katie! You must give your momma much joy :))

meowmeowmans said...

Great job, Katie! Yes, we think "stop, stop" is what our mom and dad say when they really like something. :)

Have fun with your brother!

Hugs!

Daisy said...

I'll bet you make pretty music! I am a little bit zawstid because of losing an hour of sleep last night.

Brian said...

Tamago said...

Oh, Katie san, sounds like it was a wonderful performance! Your mom must have been so excited that she could not stop shouting or applauding!
I love this picture. You look very cute :-) I hope you have a good time with your brother!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We're sure your brother is going to enjoy your performance later tonight!
Please ask your Mom to put aside some of the chikken for me when I come tonight. I'm not a fan of tomato, though. And to please pack a roasted potato for me to bring home to Mommy. :)

Love, Your Boomie

The Cat From Hell said...

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Katie, just an FYI - "Stop!" is human for "Encore!"

Keisha said...

That is funny! Can u play trumpet?

Kjelle Bus said...

Me and mom guess your mom was singing STOP in the name of love :)
I´m very impressed that you can play the harp ! I have heard that it shall be very difficult !

No wonder you are zawstid sweet Katie you have been working hard. Sounds like you are doing a real good job playing that keep awake music. Mom may have to nap with you in the daytime. Hugs and nose kisses

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

That was so nice of her to get up and applaud. Mommie just shouts encouragement from the bed. And you know I have noticed that the earlier in the morning I sing, the more she shouts encouragement.

The Island Cats said...

Katie, we know your human brother is going to appreciate all your efforts!!

Cathy Keisha said...

Oh man, playing with the vertical blinds is one of my favorite hobbies. In fact, it's the first bad habit I picked up when I came here. I found I could quickly get attention by getting behind the blinds and banging. I starting doing it again since TW ruined my cat bed.

Prancer Pie said...

We would luf anudder encore purrfurmance! Get sum rest first, pretty Katie, you do look plum tuckered out! xoxo

Laoch of Chicago said...

Love the sprawling one.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Hmm, I was half considering getting blinds... I wonder if we would have a harp player in the house... might have to reconsider..

You look like a pooped out derailed monorail kitty in that picture! You must have been practicing very very hard!

I wonder if your mom has considered opening the blinds.. naa, that would put an end to her concerts! MOL

We LOVE yer HEADER! The falling glitters are a bit distracting though.

Anonymous said...

My cats like them blinds too. We have lots of peep holes thanks to them.

SailorEdgar said...

Don't those blinds make an interesting sound! :-) Does your brother know what a treat is in store for him? (heh heh) You make an adorable monorail. Gracie & Millie don't have the right furniture for making a monorail.
