Is This Thing On?

yeah, it's been forever ago since i last posted anything. Mommy never turns the computer on anymore because she uses this thing called a laptop. she mostly has it on her lap. well, duh. but, there are times when she puts it on the table. when she turns it off at night, she usually shuts it, but sometimes she forgets to. that means, i can try to use it! it's a little harder to use, but i'm trying to get the hang of it.

anyway, so many things have happened since i last wrote, i don't even know what to write about. i guess i'll just start with Mommy. she was very sad this summer. she used to talk about her good phriend, Mason, and now she doesn't a lot, and that's because he had died in June. now, i didn't know Mason very well, but what i did know is that Mommy really thought he was funny. she usually laughed a lot when talking to him. and she smiled a lot. and sometimes she said awwww. i don't know what that was about. i know she talked about me with him many times. she would tell him things i was doing. uhh, hello, privacy?? did she always have to mention the stupid things i'd do?? i mean really, sometimes i was rather embarrassed. well, anyhow, Mommy was like a zombie the night that Mason died. i remember she got up off the couch and went into the kitchen, and just started calling people to let them know. there were times when she was a bit incoherent because she was crying so hard. i felt really bad for her, and for her phriend. i think Mason was waiting for another lung transplant, and just didn't make it. that is such a shame. now Mommy is trying to let people know how important it is to be an organ donor. it sure sounds pretty important to me.

Mommy put up a little thing called a memorial on her table in the bedroom. it's a picture of Mason and some cards he had given her over the past few years. there's also a turtledove with his picture that he gave her for Christmas last year. i have learned that this memorial is special, especially when i climbed on the table to take a closer look and almost knocked the dove off the table. wow, Mommy really got upset with me. she started yelling and crying all over again. i haven't climbed the table since.

Mommy was also unhappy this summer because the weather sucked, as she put it. there weren't too many really hot days, i admit. sometimes i like those kind of days. i just lay there like a big slug on the cool floor. well, sometimes it's a warm floor. but whatever. summer turned into fall pretty quick, and Mommy was really freezing for awhile there. but Grandma gave her money to buy a heater thing. Mommy calls it an urn. whatever it is, i like it. it gives out very nice heat. i'd sit on top of it if Mommy would let me, but she's no fun. so, i just sit right next to it and feel the warmth. aaaaaaahhhhhh!!

Mommy closed up the computer room for the winter. she had the courtesy to move my chair into the jewelry room, but for awhile there i was so mad at her for moving it that i tried so hard not to use it for awhile. eventually i caved. who can blame me? it's got a nice comfy blanket on it, and it's warm and stuff. i just couldn't resist it anymore, and boy was she ever so happy the first time she saw me using it again. she's such a dork.

i guess that's it for now. i'm going to leave with a video of Mommy not being very nice to me.

Just Some Stuff

Mommy and i have been enjoying the christmas tree she put up the day after that one day humans eat turkey on, thanksgiving or something. although Mommy had chinese food that day this year. but i digress. anyway, Mommy likes the tree for a different reason than i do. i just love the plastic taste, and gnawing on the green branches. Mommy really gets irritated and tries to spray me with that stupid spray bottle. she's lucky that i just don't have the energy to climb the tree, and that i'm only biting on the bottom branches!! i hear the tree only has another week or so to be up, which i really find unfair. why can't we have it up all year long? it's only a tree, it doesn't look too bad in the living room. oh well, i guess that means maybe i'll have to have my adventures down into the basement once the tree gets down there. although that means i need to watch out for that doggy living upstairs. he's nice and all, but i'm wary of him. i just never know what he's up to!

Mommy keeps telling people that soon she'll be celebrating the fact she's lived in this place for 10 years. hard to believe. i got here almost 2 years later. things have changed even since i've been living here. i remember when she was painting the ocean room. well she had painted the living room before that, but there were no mishaps. when she painted the ocean room (computer room), i was sitting in one of the windowsills the one day, and she decided to paint right underneath me. well, i decided to get out of the window, and when i jumped down, i put a paw right into wet paint. gee whiz!! before i could even lick it off, Mommy was grabbing my paw and trying to wipe it with a wet paper towel. i would pull away and run, and she'd catch up with me. finally, she had such a good grip on my paw, that i hissed. i was sooooooooooo mad. well, i had never hissed in front of Mommy before! she was appalled, but laughing so hard at the same time! that made me even more mad!! here Mommy is laughing her butt off at me, which was making me hiss even more, and she still wouldn't let go!! but she finally decided she had enough of the paint off my paw that if i licked off the rest, i would be ok, so she let go. i took off again! that's all i remember about the ocean room getting painted. it wasn't a pleasant memory, but Mommy sure seemed to get a kick out of it!

anyway, living here with Mommy has been (sorta) great, and she's liked living here, too. she can't believe the time has flown, and wonders where it went. i am hoping i can live with her here for another 10 years. i really do like the place. i have my favorite spots, like the kitchen cupboard, occasionally the fridge, all the nice windowsills, and that basement has some good hiding spots, too. it seems to be some good digs for the two of us.

guess i should be going. probably my last post for the year. i know i don't post too often, but Mommy never leaves the computer on anymore. she has the past few days, so i thought i'd take advantage of it!!

I've Been Lazy, So Sue Me

it's been such a long time since i've blogged. Mommy's been leaving the computer on for days at a time, even though she doesn't use it much. so you'd think i'd be typing every night. i just haven't been in the mood. and that's a shame, there's been a lot to tell!

Mommy and i have a new neighbor. Mommy really likes her, i guess her name is Diane. she has a dog, named Frasier. i've met Frasier briefly, by peeking out around the corner while Mommy was standing there one time. he nosed me. he's not too bad, but i don't say that to mean i'd like him as my buddy. no thanks! anyway, hopefully Diane and Frasier will stick around awhile. i liked the last girl that was up there, she took care of me once. but, it does make Mommy and Grandma stop worrying when someone is living up there, so hopefully this will work out for a long time!

Mommy's birthday was in September, and i got one benefit from that: a giant box!! Mommy got a gift card from Walmart, and money from a special phriend named Mason, and she put it towards a loud thing she calls a Kone. it's like a mini-vacuum sort of thing. it doesn't scare the shit out of me like the big vacuum does, but i still cautiously supervise Mommy anyway when she's using it. but i digress. Mommy had to actually order the Kone thingy from Walmart from their website, and when it arrived after Mommy came back from her little vacation, it came in a gigantic box! i love that box. Mommy has really wanted to put it in the recyling bin, but she's been nice enough to let me have it for awhile. she is amused at seeing me in it. and of course, she got pictures. argh!!

let's see, what else is going on? Mommy's going crazy trying to make jewelry for some party she's having with Aunt Mandy. i guess it's this Saturday. Mommy's stuff is nice, but she aggravates me with how many beads she drops on the floor. once in a blue moon, i go after one, and she thanks me for that because otherwise, she just leaves them. really, you can't find much on that kitchen floor. i can understand why she doesn't want to try finding a small bead! but, it's crazy when i find a bead in my food dish, like i did last night. i'm so lucky i didn't break a tooth!!

the windows have been shut tight for weeks now, so i'm guessing it's the cold part of the year that Mommy and i both seem to hate. the heat goes off now, it's nice hanging out by the vents. and i guess a nice thing about it being colder is that Mommy takes out the blankets more, and let's me sleep under them with her. those are the best naps! i know Mommy likes them, too.

well, guess i better go. i can't think of anything else of importance right now, except for a nap in the big box!!

Mommy's Leaving Me?? And Other Crap

so Mommy has been telling me the past few days that she's going away to some place with horses, i think. i don't know where this place is, but all i know is that she says she's going for a couple days. she says she is leaving me a shitload of food (hey, those are her words, not mine) and water, and i should be fine. fine?? well i'm sure i'll be ok, but i will be lonely!! i might not even be able to eat. sometimes i get that way when she's gone for a day or two. and then when she comes home, and i know she's not abandoning me again, i pig out. ugh, why does she do this to me?????? i wonder if she'll leave the computer on for me. hmmmmm.

so tonight the doorbell rang and scared the crap out of me, as usual. Mommy didn't know who the heck it was, and when she finally answered it, it was a lady with a check. i guess she's moving into the apartment upstairs. i heard something about a dog, too. i don't know about that. i got to meet the lady, and her name is Diane. she seemed nice. she was calling me all kinds of names, like beautiful and gorgeous, and wonderful. i'm gonna really like her! after a few minutes, i just decided to go hide. i get like that. i think Mommy will let her take care of me whenever Mommy abandons me. i guess i can live with that!

well i hear Mommy stirring in the living room. i think she's getting ready to go to bed. that means she'll let me out of the computer room. she's had me locked in here for quite a while. i almost thought she forgot about me. as you can probably guess, i was a bad kitty again. well, bad in her eyes. i only wanted to "play!"

Just Some Thoughts

Mommy has locked me in the computer room for the 2nd time tonight. i hate when she locks me in here. i only wanted to bite the hell out of her, which i was doing successfully, when she got up in a rage and chased me all the way in here. and then she slammed the door shut. the only consolation tonight (yes, there have been other nights when she's locked me in here) is that the computer is on. so, i am writing. it's been awhile.

i hear that Mommy and i are getting a new housemate soon. i hear, also, that she is an animal lover. hmmmm. maybe i will like her, i am not too sure. what i do like, however, is the apartment upstairs. Grandma left the apartment door ajar last week when the new lady came to look at it, and when Mommy thinks i'm wandering down in the basement, i'm really upstairs snooping. although, last Thursday i was up there and Mommy heard me. that was because i stupidly jumped off the counter in the kitchen, and Mommy heard. i'm no lightweight, that's for sure. i gave myself away. she was laughing, though. i think she was surprised i was up there. i think she also gets a kick out of the way i make the stairs creak when i'm coming down them. i don't know if she's making fun of me and my plumpness, or what. it's one of the reasons i like to bite her in the evening!

well i hear Mommy moving around in the kitchen. maybe she will let me out now!! i don't think i'll try biting her again tonight. of course, she's going to ditch me soon after she opens the door to go to bed. i can never win!!

Geesh, Finally

Mommy left her computer on tonight, it's about time. i wish she would leave it on all the time. heck, i wish she would use it again more often. she's on that silly thing called a laptop every day now. our routine is all messed up. she used to have breakfast in the computer room every morning, which was nice because i like to hang out on the rug in there. but now she eats at the kitchen table while on the laptop. it's very weird seeing the kitchen table actually being used for eating. i'm glad she is enjoying herself, but really, i think it's very rude since she isn't considering how much this is disrupting to me!

Mommy's friend, Eve, stayed here this past weekend with her boyfriend, Jody. they weren't too bad, mostly because they were only here at night. i remember Eve. she helped Mommy shove me into a cat carrier bag back in December, and then drove me to the vet. i'll get her for that at some point. Eve is crazy, though. i have to be careful of her!

i've taken into hiding in the cupboard behind the macaroni almost every day. Mommy can't understand it. i just like it in there, it's a bit cooler, and just a great place to hide. and sleep. oooooh it's nice for sleeping. i do come out of there by late afternoon. it does get cramped after awhile, and well, you've seen my size. i need space, too!

i guess that's all the important stuff i have to say. Mommy has been busy this summer for the most part. i'm happy that she's doing stuff. she was rather sad this past winter that she couldn't do an awful lot since she was so sick. i hope she doesn't get sick again this winter. it is hard to believe that before we all know it, those stupid plastic sheet things will go over my windows, and the cold weather will be here. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! i think Mommy is thinking the same thing! we do have some similar thoughts, i am her child afterall!

Visitors

i know it's been a long time since i've written. Mommy was using the computer alot (not shocking), and then shutting it off at night. i don't know how to put it back on. then, Mommy got a new laptop on Friday. she hasn't used the computer since, but it was on this afternoon, so i thought i'd sneak an entry while Mommy is in the bedroom typing away. she can do that because of something called a wireless router. whatever. now i feel like the computer is mine!

anyway, the ultimate evil happened last week. my aunt Lisa came. with her husband, named Brandon. i usually get used to them more than i used to in previous years. well, more used to Lisa. however, they brought their dogs with them. that was just downright cruel. i hid in the cupboard most of the time. when i got brave enough to come out, one of the dogs (the one they call Zoey) kept stalking me. apparently she's never seen a cat before. she'd get kinda too close for comfort, so i'd cry at her, trying to tell her to back off. that would lead her to start barking at me, and acting like she wanted to play. it was quite irritating. everyone kept trying to yell at her to back off, but she was very stubborn. i'm just glad we never had a showdown. she might have got her ass kicked.

the other dog, Lexie, was not bad. in fact, i think she was just a follower. Zoey would get all excited and barky over seeing me, and Lexie would join. but then she'd see me, and she'd be like, whatever. now if it was just Lexie that Lisa and Brandon had brought up, i think i wouldn't have hid all that often. the only thing i didn't like about Lexie was that she ate about 1/4 bag of my cat food. that was just rather rude. she had her own food! basically she just eats anything you give her. such a pig!

well that's it for now. i'm going to see what Mommy is doing. i'm sure she's in her glory with the laptop. all weekend she couldn't move out of the computer room with it since she didn't have the router thing, but this moring, after she got it and installed it, she's been in the bedroom since. i have a feeling she's going to become very lazy!
