time to wrap!

Mama says it's almost time to pull out the wrapping paper. Her closet and the surrounding floor is covered with bags. She's decided to not be embarrassed that this is a Goodwill Christmas. Lots of shirts for Uncle Jerry--Izod!--laundered and boxed. Books for Uncle Jerry, Aunt Ellen and Auntie Althea. Everyone knows that it's secondhand or not at all this year. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, right?

Purr and pray please

DaisyMae Maus is my cousin. You can click on her name to go to her blog to read what her Mom (my Mom's niece) says about DMM's health. It's scary, and I'm worried.

I've been purring a lot. My purr is loud and rumbly. You can probably hear it where you live if you know to listen for it.

We know DMM is getting fluids, and that fluids often a help a kitty feel lots better. Let's get all our purrs--soft and quiet and loud and rumbly--focused on her so she'll feel better!

Let's send prayers, good energy, and hugs to her Mom, too, so that she can feel all the support and love.

Know what I heard?


I heard Santa Paws on the roof yesterday. Yes, I know it was Thanksgiving, but I heard Santa Paws. I know I did. It had to be!

Mom says it was Uncle Jerry on the roof clearing out a couple of leaf-stuffed gutters. She's trying to confuse me.

You know what's weird? I love my Uncle Jerry. A lot. I'd like to call him 'Dad', but Uncle Jerry says 'No! I'm your Mom's brother. I can't be your Dad.'

(sometimes when he isn't paying too much attention, I purr him a special little love song...and I whisper 'dad' at the end. i don't think he'll mind too much, especially if i don't tell.)

mama culpa

at least that's what mama says. too much going, and nothing going on--both at the same time!

there's been time for cuddling, for brushing! (have you seen my floof? i require LOTS of brushing) when it gets to 70 degrees outside, mama opens the door in the family room and i get to go out. if it's chilly or wet, i come right back in. i like warm and cozy much more than prowling longish damp grass.

i've heard a rumor that there's going to be turkey here today. i'm not much for people food, but i might give this a try.

peaceful late summer days

It's been warm here. We've had several days of weather in the upper 70s and lower 80s. I shed. Mama brushes or combs me. I shed. Mama holds me. I shed. Gee, I see a pattern here!

Even though I got a tummy trim for the summer, I'm still developing lots of matted fur. Mama has small, extra-sharp scissors. Uncle Jerry holds me and Mama does the trimming. I complain but I don't really mind. I mean, c'mon, two humans loving on me at one time?! Does it get any better than that? Didn't think so.

Here's one thing that I can't say I really like: since Mama quit her job nearly two weeks ago, I haven't had much extra cuddle time with her. She's always busy doing something. Today, she says, the table will be done. Then she has a meeting in downtown Seattle this afternoon.

Tomorrow is her busy day: she's got client meetings and then she meets with the President of the Board of Directors where she used to work. We're all curious about what's going to happen with that one.

...paw over eyes...

I can hardly believe what my mother and Uncle Jerry did to me tonight.

They took me for a ride in the car! They said it was a--get this--joy ride! As if. if!

They said they'd like me to get comfortable with car rides so we can go out as a family. I don't know about that.

I did shed. More than usual. That part was fun.

The heat is on

We don't really mean this Glenn Frey song. We mean that it's too cold here, and we've turned on the furnace this morning. It's nearly noon, and it's only 60 degrees outside!

Luckily, it's supposed to get warmer over the weekend. Mama's got a table she's been refinishing, and would like to do it while it's not cold outside. The stain dries faster when it's warmer.

Instead of sitting here at the computer, Mama and I are heading to her big chair. She rented The Lincoln Lawyer from the local Redbox, and we'll be watching that for the next little while.

Mama's also studying up on how to do linkies and other things, since it's been so long since she's done any of this stuff. We hope the linkies work for you!
