Not Just Noise, Either!!! Good Grief!!!

Kitties, how much does one cat have to take?  The place was jumping yesterday with the man who came to total the bathroom where I drink while mono railing on the tub edge...help mom apply her daily disguise ( applying makeup...I get pets, in between all she's doing up there spackling her face and all).  

Anyway, while my water was replaced on the floor...the entire spare room was taken up with all the new stuffs and tools etc.  And this morning, mom couldn't do much over than hit and run if you will.   I couldn't do anything! No petting for me..oh no.  Well, not in the human litter box at least.

It's gutted in there is how she put it.  Sounds like that hurt-- and it looks it too!

Now this is me yesterday afternoon, in my ever present perfect hot sunpuddle up on the back of the couch.  I know mom said to a friend it seems I NEVER move but with all the drilling and thumping...ain't going to the other parts of the house, no ma'am.  You DO get to see my chin and my checkerboard  face pattern though.

 And here is what she is putting us through.

I Know There Will be Noise!

Kitties!  Tomorrow a man is coming to my house and he will change my human's litterbox totally for several days, except the tubby.  That's going to be noisy noisy, and trouble trouble for ME.

We only have her box and mine.  Mine is too small (thank goodness) except for me !! so she will have to be running to the drugstore all day for a few days to use theirs.  (Neighbors are working and not there).

Mom and I have been going through our photos and we saw this one yesterday and chose it for today.  Don't we look snappy and beautifully dressed and coifed?  This was after an evening on the town in Wales when Austin   invited me over for a weekend of fun and exploring.  We had celebrated his birthday just before this picture was taken, and he extended the invitation for me to join him and Tigger, who was there as well celebrating with his mate Austin.  Such fun.  I love when Austin speaks Welsh to me!  I have learned quite a bit through the years and we caused some raised eyebrows  with our convos as we go from tavern to tavern. (Austin's that kinda mancat).

I may get the iPhone later so  I can call him this afternoon which will be nitenite time for him...and we might find a way to be together during the changeout of the human litterbox.  He has another fab home outside the main house where he retreats in the days and of course, inside his big home with his mom.  I'll give him a call!

Silver Threads Among the Black

Kitties!  It has come to this!  Behold this harbinger of old age!  I will find a way to make mom pay for this embarrassment!  What will the mancats say!?!

She bought it last Sunday for me when she heard (and saw) me struggle a bit leaping to the table where my brushies stuffs were laid out.  I came flying in, made a leap and my poor shins were barked.  Mom heard them hit the wood.  That's twice.  And sometimes getting into the bed, I struggle just a tench.  So mom paid a horrible (I'm worth it) wad of green papers for this squishy set of steps  She put Kong nip on them, and it didn't take long for me to climb.  Now...whether or not I'll use them for now remains to be seen.

BAD night kitties.  For a good reason, mom had to prop three pillows behind her back and mostly sit up for the night.  That won't happen tonight thank goodness.  But imagine me trying several times to climb up and snuggle into mom's neck and ear and shoulder.  Ain't happenin'. Not when she is sitting UP! Holey Moley!!   I tried THREE times...purring so hard, but she would not relent and lay DOWN so I could snuggle in!

Here I am this very afternoon enjoying my sun puddle.  See my initials, KI (in orange by my shoulder) on the mat Miss Stacy made for me...Angel Stella's mommy?  Mom said her girls have all had such beautiful mats quilted by Miss Stacy for them...they are still in use.  Admiral's however is in an old oak library card case. With her other things.  This is a new photo.  I am just up here a lot.

Never Underestimate my Power Mom

Kitties!  I was just paying my respects and saying thanks  to mom for feeding me when Mom got ungrateful with my efforts.  Why?

 I was pacing at the placemat where I have my food and water.  Mom had just refilled my gigantic (seriously I think it holds close to a qt.) water bowl and was setting it down on the mat...always watching me, having learned the hard way, for my enthusiasm... aka headbonks.

Well, she misjudged that particular headbonk that I gratefully laid on her elbow; and a goodly amount of water splashed onto  the wooden floor.  Trying to put the bowl on the counter, she misjudged that too, and bonked it onto the hard counter edge.  More water spilled all over the floor.  No way to wake up she said, with cold water splashing her feet and legs at 6:30...and having to get it all cleaned up before *I* was served breakfast!  Towels were hurriedly fetched from the bathroom to sop it all up.  A refill was done after drying my placemat too, and then, at last breakfast!  Sheesh.

Here I am last night...when I was thinking over my day to come...ya know what I mean?

And here I am a few minutes ago, reminiscing  the watching of mom running thru the house..literally.   AND note,  I am stationed at the hot air blowy thing.

That was That

Kitties...that was that.  I read what Mom said and I guess I felt badly because the next night and last night as well...I have stayed above her head. She said she was thinking about several suggestions and one being to put one of my beddies over on the other side  in the pillow area, just for the night. She hasn't had to do anything as I stopped... at least for now.  I have my own pillow as CK mentioned.  But I have been preferring her head to it.  🙀

When I first came home with Mommy...many years ago.

Sleepless in the City

Kitties, I'm turning it over to mom and I'll hide my eyes because it's about me.

Kitties and woofies, Mom here has few wits to have come to wits end...but what few I have are flumbuzzled.

Katie has been sleeping on top of or crowded up against my head for several years now.   Throw in free face washing and eyelid checking.   A little less so in the summer months.  But now,  it's cooler and the last three nights will be an example.  I am unsure how to handle this. Thought on how will be appreciated.

Katie has her sweet and beautiful face exactly next to mine...we are literally cheek to cheek.  Wait,  Her mouth and nosey are mashed to my cheek/eye.  Mashed in tightly with a big sigh and settled in, her paw on my neck (that's OK) her sides and shoulder pressed against the upper part of my neck.  Last night, she upped the ante and gathered my head into her arms.  Like a head-sized ball.  She let out a long sigh, settled her nose and mouth right into my eye and nose and started purring to beat the band and then, off to the arms of Morpheus.   Just her.  Not me.

TMI, but I have the smaller CPAP.  The little "nose pillow",  and she cuts off,  or reduces greatly the air  coming through on the side she is snuggled deeply into.

I can't keep her out...that's like punishing her for loving me so much.  I keep moving her but she waits a few seconds politely and when I am still, she settles right back in.  This went on six or seven times last night, and I even turned the light back on each time.  Nope.  My little girl stayed right there.

Here's an example from last night's sleep count by the Fitbit.    That's just a part of the night.  

Eyes burningly yours,

Mom of Katie

Sheesh Mom!

Mom was up at the park burnin' up the pathways  this morning when she came upon THESE!

What in the name of cheese whiz and crackers does THAT mean?  Last time I looked in the mirror I was a cat.  Not a dog who likes playing with sticks!!  She claims she was simply seeing if I would be attracted to the scent of wood and outdoors.  The answer is a resounding NO- I AM NOT!  Get rid of that insult!

Purrs and purrayers are lovingly sought for this kitty, a Flame Point Siamese whose name is Sunny.  Here is what his Mom said to a friend of my favorite brother over the Mountains.

"Sunny had bladder obstruction (in ICU for 3 days/surgically inplanted catheter in bladder), passing crystals in his urine and this past week treated for acute onset of hematuria. He is currently receiving IV fliuds daily plus meds. Under the careful watch of his fur mom".

 Love to Sunny and his Mom too for we know she is very worried.

I am locked out of Admiral's blog, until the site gives me a break.   So I thought I would put her sweet self in mine.  ❤️

Here she is...
Where is the beautiful Tortie? 

My girls always sleep in my place on my side.  See her closed eyes?

Treats were given by youngest favorite brovver.

Mom and the Cat Cafe Pictures

When mom went to visit the other favorite brovver over the mountains, she went to a Cat Cafe.
It's called The Daily Mews Cat Cafe in Charlotte NC.  So far I think the wrangler said about 150 adoptions.  Only 12 cats were in residence Saturday when we were there.  We enjoyed our visit and spent some money buying merchandise!

Mom, other favorite brovver, and his lady friend all went together.  They got to stay a good hour.  Reason time was added was suddenly there was a thundering herd  fleeing through the little cat head shaped door.  EVERYONE ran like the wind and squeezed through.  We were alone in the room.  The man who said he was a cat wrangler added the time we paid for to be doubled.  They were being fed.

Someone couldn't make up his mind..sitting in the doorway.

They had a skyway across one side

Love the Charlotte skyline depicted.

Abandoned- Sorta

Kitties!  My mom is finally headed over the mountains to visit other favorite brovver.  Favorite brovver will be here sitting me until Mom returns.  That will be late Sunday afternoon.  Third favorite brovver or sissy-in-law will come over if need be.

This is her birfday trip even though her birfday was back in September, same day as Teddy and Sammy's mommy.  She wasn't able to go till now due to favorite brovver appointments, for which she wanted to be with him.  GUESS WHAT? She's going to her first ever Cat Cafe in Charlotte! Cheating on me.

So, he'll be a scooping my box, feeding me and him, playing ,and petting me.  I won't miss mom one bit.  When I first came here to my home...so happens favorite brovver was visiting that day.  So I have known him all my life with mom.

Wish mom luck.  She hates merging onto I-485 only on her return to home and me.  All the other merges  comin' and goin' are fine.  That one has a short ramp and the speed limit is 70...so everyone is going faster than that.  Her toes are curling now  thinking ahead with just helping me write this.

This is me a minute ago, getting ready for brovver to show up.  Yea, me!
