Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things That Are Different Now

1. The big one: Jasmine is gone. I am the Only Cat.
2. That means I am the Alpha Cat.
3. I demand Mom's attention quite a bit.
4. I demand she pet me for much longer periods than she ever used to. It makes her feel better.
5. I demand she pet me more often. Again, it makes her feel better.
6. I purr quite loudly now.
7. I can sit, lie, nap, play, wherever I want; even under the bed!
8. There are no Millie-free zones.
9. There is only one food bowl.
10. All the treats, all the Temp-ta-shuns, are Mine!
11. I jump on the bed in the morning after the squawk box wakes up.
12. I help Mom wake up by demanding to be petted. It makes her feel better.
13. Sometimes in the morning I lie down next to her on the bed while she pets me. You know, it makes her feel better.

Sounds like being an only cat can be great. I don't know though, I really love my brofurs and need kitty warmth to snuggle to. Keep making your mom feel better!


The Meezers or Billy said...

wow Millie, a year ago you never would have even mentioned the thought of the possibility of letting mom pet you. But, if it makes her feel better, then it's a good thing.

does you get lonely or scairt during the day when mom is at werk? i would, I doesn't think I could be an only cat. I can't even be Alpha Cat. ::sigh::
it must be nice to have all the tem-tay-shuns to yourself. It sounds like you is really enjoying it!!

Isn't it amazing what we will do to make our moms happy. I know it's hard for you, but I know you can handle it.

Ya know what?
If ya jump on the sofa when she is watching the picture box thing and sit next to her she'll pet you so much that you'll fall asleep right there!
Its true.

Dear Millie - it's awfully nice of you to let your Mom pet you. 'Cause it is important to make her feel better. I don't know if I would like to be an only child. I think I would get lonesome.

Unknown said...

Wow, things really are different at your place now. I hope you are doing okay.

Millie dear, you've come a long way in a year.

Wait a while and than ask your Mom for a baby brother or sister and she might say yes! In the meantime, we know you'll take good care of her.

You are so sweet, Millie, to take care of your mom this way. I'll bet it's nice to get all the treats.

You know it is ok Millie to be an only cat. You can wipe all your smells on your mommy, you don't have to share anything anymore, you can start being fussy with your food as if you don't eat it it will just sit there, you can snuggle as much as you want and you get all your moms attention.

If ever you need special single cat advice you can ask me or my brudder monty Q (your honey).
