Flirting with Domesticity

(Click photos to biggify)

Here are some of the things I have learned since I joined the family here:

1. There is always food.
2. The water is always fresh.
3. There are plenty of good places to hide.
4. I can run faster than both Gizzy and Jasmine.
5. I like stinky goodness better than crunchies.
6. The Lady is pretty smart – she can find me wherever I hide.
7. Breakfast is at 6 AM. I get fed after the big cats.
8. I’m the only cat that really plays with the toys, which is fine.
9. Jasmine doesn’t like me no matter what I do.
10. The Lady will give me some of whatever she’s eating if I ask nicely.
11. If I pester Gizzy or Jasmine too much at bedtime I can get squirted.
12. The blue fleece blanket on the couch is my spot.
13. The Lady’s closet is Jasmine’s special spot and I have to stay out of it.
14. When I hear the crinkle crunch sound I know the Lady has treats for us all.
15. I do not like the Rug-Sucking Monster
16. Cheese is really really good. I love cheese.
17. When the Lady calls my name, I can find her.
18. Gizzy loves me, he just won’t admit it.
19. I am safe even if I take a nap right out in the open.
20. It’s okay if the Lady pets me sometimes.
21. I am not flirting with domesticity, no matter what the Lady thinks. I flirt with Gizzy.

Oh Millie! I am soooooo happy for you. You not only sound happy, but appreciative as well. I think you are a perfectly lovely poodin and think you deserve all the cushy spots you can find.

Oh, I just love these pictures, espeially the first one. Millie you ave learn a lot in just one short month.
Is the Lady enjoying the little yellow ball today?

Millie said...

Cecilia, oh yes, the Lady is enjoying the little yellow ball. She rooted for another bald guy today and was disappointed in a Raffa. But what she has REALLY had some fun with is the "I feel pretty" bit. I hear it over and over and EVERY time it's on the Lady laughs out loud and claps her hands.

Little Millie, you have a lot of learning in that pretty little head of yours.

I am so glad you found the perfect home. You just fit in so well. Your story has such a happy ending.

And we missed your anniversary, so here's a big ol' happy anniversary from me (ML), MBE, KC and Bear.

Oh, sweetie, you learned so much good stuff! We are so proud of you, and happy for you in your forever home.

Please have patience for Jasmine. She is an elder, and to be respected, and she is very brave right now with her sickness. Think of sweet things to do for her, okay?

KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

That top photo, is that Gizzy? It is so precious. I just have to check in everyday and see what you are up to, little girl.

And we are keeping Jasmine in our prayers, she is a beautiful brave lady.

Dear Darling Millie, you have the most WONderful blog!! And the picture of you and Gizzy through the window is absolutely priceless. I really can't stop looking at it.

Meowers from Missouri said...

wow! you are sure learnin' stuff by leaps and bounds (at least SOME of it must entail leaping & bounding), and it's all important.

we're so happy for you there in a safe, pleasant, furrever home, and have another kitty to hang with. cuddling is SO nice!

we send you purrs, skritches, and soft pettins, and some of the same to gizzy and jasmine (remember, she's a very old kitty who needs your respect and kindness. so please be the nice kitty we know you are!)
