Here I am pestering Mom. She was trying to cut this fabric for a Gizzy quilt, but I want her to pet me. Now that I am the Only Cat, things have changed, and I want to tell you all about it.
Gizzy used to wake Mom up in the morning. I don't. I sleep on my nifty bed on the blue recliner, just outside Mom's room. When I hear the squawk box go off, I go jump on her bed so she can pet me. She usually hits the squawk box to make it be quiet, then she gives me scritches. She is under the blankets, so I don't have to worry she will try to pick me up. I move all around so she can give me all the scritches I want wherever I want them. Sometimes I will flop down on the bed and lean up against her, but she can't get me, so it's OK. Sometimes I even lean on her, and once I even lay down on her belly. But I didn't stay long. I do not sleep on her bed at night. I only sleep on her bed during the day when she is gone.
When she gets up, she turns on the computer and then goes to the litterbox room. After that she gets my food ready. Then she gets in the rainbox. I don't hang around waiting, like Gizzy did.
I occasionally jump up onto the counter while she makes her lunch and gets her breakfast ready. Sometimes I meow to let her know I want more scritches.
Sometimes I get on the table while she eats breakfast. But I don't drink her milk, the way Jasmine used to.
When she leaves for day hunting, I am usually in my favorite spot in the cat hammock, watching as she gets in the metal macheen and goes away.
Gizzy used to know when she would be coming home from day hunting and wait on the back of the recliner, watching for her metal macheen to come into the driveway. Then he would meet her at the door when she came in. I don't do that. She calls me, but that just lets me know she's home. She gets the mail, turns the computer on, closes the window sticks and puts her coat away. By that time I have done my stretches. She gets my food ready, and then I have dinner.
After she makes the bubbles with the pots and pans, she goes in the sewing room. I usually make sure she gives me plenty of scritches and pets before I let her get any sewing done. Someday she'll figure out that Only Cat also means Top Cat!
