Truthful Thursday

1. I like my scritches. Right behind the ears.

2. I know how to ask Mom for them.

3. I ask, very politely, for my treats every night at treat time. Now that I've got Mom fully trained, I only have to meow the tiniest of meows and she jumps right up and gets the treat tin.

4. There aren't any dirty dishes in the kitchen, and the laundry is all folded.

5. She's read two books this week alone. (I mean started and finished them both). She started another one last night, and she'll probably be finished with that by the end of the week.

6. Mom bought like eleventy books for herself at Christymas.  Really. One, two, three, five, six, eight, ten, eleventy.

7. When Mom sits down to read a book on her Kindle, I get close by and get my scritches and pets. Why would I need a Kindle of my own?

8. Mom really isn't lazy. I just like to tease her. Seriously though, I think she needs to be lazier. Like me, for example.

9. The night before last I chased a cricket all around the house. It was great fun. I even brought it to show Mom. She was very proud of me.

10. OK, that last bit wasn't very lazy of me, but hey, I'm a cat, that's my job.

I am a Lap Cat, and here is proof.

Yes, for Christymas this year I gifted my Mom with the best present in the whole world, my lovely self, on her lap. She gets my warmth and the stress-reducing benefits of my purrs and I get...


I get a really happy Mom.

The best presents don't come in boxes!

Truthful Thursday

Mom finished the book about the hornet's nest kicking girl last night.  I was right there with her.

I wasn't on the bed.

I wasn't lying in the recliner.

I wasn't lying on the back of the couch.

I wasn't lying next to Mom.

I was lying on top of her. 

I stayed there for an hour.

Words Only Wednesday

Mom came home from her day hunting gig yesterday, gave me my stinky goodness and then lay down on the couch to read about the hornets-nest-kicking-girl.  When I was done my dinner, and after my bath, I curled up next to Mom on the couch and got lots of scritches.

Life is good.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom forgot the flashy box on her desk at her day hunting gig, so there are no photos of me today.  They'd be pretty boring anyway. I napped while she read another book on her Kindle.  Remember this summer when she couldn't get enough of Inspector Gamache?  Well now she is hooked on a girl with a dragon tattoo who plays with fire and kicks hornet's nests! I'm not sure about this girl, but Mom just can't get enough, and my blogging has suffered as a result. 

Actually, if Mom's reading that much, pretty much everything around here suffers.  The dishes don't get done, the bed never gets made, Mom doesn't do any sewing... Don't worry about me though! I make SURE to get my stinky goodness and my Temp-tay-tions treats on time!

Millie Monday

Mom's been doing stuff she likes to do. She's been sewing a bit. Since her back is bum now, she spends a lot of time lying on the couch watching TV.  Last night she watched the finale of Iron Chef.  She has also been watching Top Chef Texas and Project Accessory. 

She is finishing up the Christymas presents and the decorating.  I am snoopervising everything.

And staying warm, because it's cold out.

Finally Friday

We have had a visitor here since Wednesday, so I haven't been able to post much. She and Mom have been cooking, eating, and talking.  Last night they watched a movie - The Help - which they enjoyed.  After the movie Mom went to bed, and guess what? I slept next to her all night long.

Tuxie Tuesday

The Tree is up, and I am checking it out.  Sorry, Mom, if I move too fast for your flashy box! My new favorite napping spot is under the Tree, and that's just gonna be the way it is until after Christymas!

Millie Monday

Lookit! The tree is here! The tree is here!  PlusOne came over yesterday and brought the tree upstairs from the dungeon. (I know it's the basement, but I think the word "dungeon" is a lot more interesting.)

PlusOne is very silly, but I like him. I don't run away when he is here. He may be silly, but he knows enough not to try to get too close to me.

It was a good day, and the Tree is up!  W00t!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

OK, sometimes I like to get real close to Mom when I get my scritches.  Now you have proof.

Blast from the Past

You know how Mom's been cleaning out her junk and shredding old papers, right? Well she was giving the shredder a good workout this morning when she found the receipt from when she donated green papers to help Malcom with "No Name Yet's" new bionic hip! 

I told her she should take a picture of it, to show everybody, but she said she couldn't.

She said the best thing about it is that now she knows the exact date she found me! It was Friday June 30th.  Mom remembers sitting down at the computer after dinner and reading Max, and then reading all about me!  When she was done reading the whole story, she clicked the DONATE button.

Of course, she didn't know I would be coming to live with her yet!

How cool is that?

Freaky Friday

Mom brought up more stuff from the dungeon last night and has put it out for the trash. She has two old sewing machines that don't work, and she wants to get rid of those too. She also has a couple of maple twin bed frames that have to go-go-go.

But that's not the freaky part. Mom has started using the M-word.

oh dear.

Thursday Thoughts

1. It is really windy outside today. I am glad I am an indoor kitty.

2. Mom is getting rid of a lot of junk stuff. She's been downstairs in the dungeon a lot, sorting through stuff and bringing out to the trash.

3. I know the Christymas tree is down there somewhere. I hope it comes up soon.

Tuxie Tuesday

Hey Mom, when is The Tree coming?  Christymas is coming, and I don't see any tree!

Millie Monday

Mom was sewing today, and I was watching.

OK, that's not the truth.

I was napping.

Sporty Sleepy Sunday

I've been doing a lot of sleeping on Mom's bed.  I now sleep next to her almost every night.

The other night she got home from day hunting, fed me my stinky goodness, and then lay down on the couch and read a book on her Kindle.

For five hours.

Holy Bast, she needed a good night's sleep after that.  I was only too happy to help.

Today? Today is a sports Sunday for her. Tennis, and then my pals, the Guys Named Pat.

I'll be napping.

**Mom just finished reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Purring for Daisy Mae Maus

My friend Daisy Mae Maus is very sick, so I am purring for her. She is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I've got my purr-er in overdrive for her.

Thursday Thought

Mom's been coming home, feeding me; making herself dinner; and then going right into the sewing studio to sew.

You know what that means, don't you? It means the house goes to pot! There are dirty dishes all over the kitchen counters, and the dining room table is covered in STUFF.

And it means I have to DEMAND she STOP and give me SCRITCHES! 

I'm very good at it.
