Not Very Nice!

yesterday morning, after Mommy got up, she was in the bathroom doing her usual stuff. i came in to say hi, my usual stuff. i wanted to get up on the counter, since she had opened up the window, and i thought it would be so nice sitting in the sun. so i tried to peek up there to see if anything was there, and i couldn't see anything. i backed up, took a big jump, and saw this thing laying on the counter near the sink that just scared the crap out of me!! i hit the counter and then jumped even higher and away from the counter that i almost landed in the tub! Mommy had the nerve to laugh her ass off at me! i had to sit there on the floor and just think about what the hell just happened for a moment. she showed me the thing on the counter, which was the ace bandage she had put on her foot. and she was STILL laughing. damn her! (yes, you can blame my Mommy for my not-so-nice language!)

My Mommy

i thought i'd write a little about my Mommy while she was off at some party for tiny kids. or tiny terrors, in my opinion. ever since i've been living here, Mommy has never worked. she used to work, she taught the tiny terrors at a place called Headstart. i guess she really loved it. but it made her too sick one year, and so her doctor made her quit. in fact, i heard her say yesterday that it was her 8th year anniversary of having to quit. she was pretty sad about it for a long time. but i also heard her yesterday say that she thinks quitting saved her life. i'm glad she had to quit. or else, she might not have been my Mommy. and i think she's alright.

Mommy has something called pulmonary hypertension. she discusses it on her blog. it's a lung disease, where the pulmonary artery is very constricted and she has a hard time breathing. she's sob alot, short of breath. she has this nice shade of purple when she really overdoes it. sometimes i've seen her sit on her bed for a bit to catch her breath, and i have to hang around her to make sure she's ok. but i guess she's been doing alot better since she's been on medicines. oh, and she's also on oxygen.

ever since i've been at the house, Mommy has this long tubing coming out from her nose and running throughout the house. let me tell you, that stuff is tasty!! i really loved snacking on it when i was little. boy, that used to piss Mommy off! she'd realize i was eating the tubing (not sure how though), and she'd come over to where i was all in a huff, and she'd smack the floor near me and yell "NO." i tell ya, it was rather scary! she did it so often, that i eventually just realized maybe this tubing as a snack was just not worth it. i really haven't snacked on it in a long time. but there are times when my tummy really wants it, and i just can't resist. of course, Mommy smacks the floor and yells. i can't win!

well i will go nap before Mommy gets home. i hope she's having fun. i'm just going to enjoy her computer chair while she's gone!

My Window!!

while Mommy is napping, i thought i'd post a little something. it must be that the weather is getting nicer. Mommy opened up the bathroom window today. oh how i miss that window during the winter!! i miss all the windows, but this one is my favorite. i can't wait to sit in it at night and watch people going by. most of them don't even know i'm there, which is suprising considering how pleasantly plump i am. oh well, i can't wait til this window can stay open all the time!

I've Been Caught!

well, my Mommy found out i've been blogging. some lady named Jen posted a comment on my blog today. thanks, Jen. now Mommy knows what i've been doing!! she especially knows i've been on her computer chair, which i'm not allowed to be on. whatever. anyway, Mommy has allowed me keep my blog, as long as i'm nice in it. i guess i'll have to be!

over the years, Mommy has come up with quite a few nicknames for me. she uses them depending on her mood. some of them are very endearing. some of them are used when she thinks i've done something wrong. my nicknames include:

*my little man
*my love
*fat cat (geesh, don't point out the obvious)
*fat ass (geesh, could she be any ruder??)
*little shit (sometimes i deserve that)
*furry blob (usually when i'm upside down on the floor, stretching)

sometimes she just pulls things out of the air to say to me. quite often she'll say hi to me even if i just saw her a few seconds ago in another room. she's quite dependent on me, i think. i guess i'm glad i'm around to keep her company!

What The Hell Is That??

one day my Mommy came home with something for me. cool, i thought! was it a new toy? a treat? catnip?? it was none of those things. she got me a blue collar. why the heck would i need a collar?? she forbids me from going outside (although it was the middle of winter, so i was happy i didn't have to go out there!). i was a little wary of it. she tried to put it on me. OH MY GOSH! it was absolute torture! i tried to get it off me, and somehow my paw got stuck so that it was almost choking me. Mommy felt horrible! here i am struggling to get this thing off, and then she was struggling to get it off me, too, because it was causing me harm! my claws were catching her hands everywhere, and she was pretty red. finally, she worked it off of me. whew!! i was so glad to be free of that thing! however, 5 minutes later, she puts it back on me again!! this time it was a little tighter, and i couldn't get my paw stuck or anything. i'm sure she was relieved that i wouldn't be all choking again, but i was pissed!! i spent a good half hour rolling around on the rug trying my best to get that thing off me. finally i just gave up. i think i've had the collar off of me twice since then. she keeps it on me in case i somehow "get lost." where does she think i'm going to get lost???? she's whacked, i tell you. some days i wonder how i manage to stay here!!

I Remember This One Time

so living with Mommy was going alright. she loved to pick me up and hold me. sometimes i liked it, other times i'd struggle until she had to just put me back down. hehe. she was beginning to grow on me though.

there was this one time in the kitchen, she was standing near the stove. i wanted to see her up close and personal. so i decided to climb her entire body to get up near her face! although she was kinda laughing, she was wincing at the same time. my claws were digging into her the entire way up. yeah, she was wearing jeans a sweatshirt, but for a kitty, my claws were pretty good! i enjoyed that climb. she pulled me off her sweatshirt when i got up to the top, and gave me a kiss and a hug. then she put me back down. needless to say, i was never allowed to do that again. ugh, party pooper!

How I Came To Live With Mommy

i don't remember much about where i lived for the first two months of my life. i was born in october 2000, and i guess i was just too tiny to realize what was going on around me. all i know is that a couple months later, the people i was living with decided to get rid of me. i have to admit, i was a bit terrified! i mean come on, why didn't they want to keep me?? i wasn't that much of a problem, i was just a tiny little orange puff ball. anyway, my former owners decided that i had to try getting a new home, so they brought me to this pet store called Blackwinds. they put me in a cage in the middle of the floor, near the door, so people could stare at me and some other strange kittens. i was not happy about this, but i was hoping i could get out of there somehow! eventually, this lady and man saw me and picked me up, and started talking about me as a gift. i wasn't sure exactly what that meant, but if it meant getting out of the cage, i was all for it! after much debating, the lady and man decided to take me out of there! apparently i was free! they bought all this stuff for me, and although i was nervous since i had no clue where i was goin, i was happy that i was going to have some sort of home!

the lady held onto me when they got into the car. i wasn't really fond of the car ride, so i climbed up the lady's neck and hid behind her hair. i didn't really care that she didn't like it! we drove for a little bit, then pulled up in front of this house. it looked interesting. they lady and man went to the side door, and pushed a button. i had no idea what that was for (i will later become scared of this button because it means someone is at the door!), but a minute later this other lady opened the door. she seemed excited, happy, nervous, and not sure what to make of me hiding in the lady's hair. apparently the lady who rescued me is Erin, and she is one of Mommy's best friends. and Erin's man-friend was her fiance at the time, Mike. anyway, we went up the stairs and into an apartment. Erin took me out from behind her hair, and handed me to the new lady. she seemed like a nice lady, and she seemed to really love holding me. heck, she held me for a good half hour, rubbing me against her face and such, and already giving me kisses. i guess she had to make sure she could keep me, since she oddly seems to be allergic to some types of cats. Erin and Mike stayed to make sure this lady would be ok with me, and after a good long time, it was decided she was ok! this lady became my Mommy!!

Mommy was so happy to have me! i guess she had always wanted to have a cat, but half her family was allergic to them, so she had to wait until she was on her own to get one. she carried me around alot, and also watched me walk around. i was just so tiny at that time, her place seemed HUGE to me! i spent several hours with her, wandering around. she had no clue what to call me. i just wanted a name!

it started getting dark, and Mommy started getting ready to go somewhere. she had this box for me to stay in, but little did she know, i didn't stay in it! i guess she was going to a concert, some group called Barenaked Ladies. sounds odd, if you ask me, but it's one of her favorites. anyway, she left me in that big apartment on my first night there! she seemed to be gone forever. she left the light on for me, so i wandered all over the place. i tried to climb things, but i was worried i'd get stuck. suddenly, Mommy was back home! i was so excited. but then, Mommy left again. she had to get money or something to go out to a bar. i couldn't believe it.

the only thing that made me happy, was that before she left, Mommy was staring at me intently. she looked like she was thinking way too hard. she suddenly decided that my name would be Mittens. she thought it was gender-neutral, since she couldn't tell at that time if i was a boy or a girl. talk about giving me a complex!! she also said it looked like i was wearing mittens since i have white paws and orange fur. it was also winter, and Mittens seemed appropriate. so, i had a name!

and then she left me to go drink.

Mommy came back awhile later, and she got ready to go to bed. i thought to myself, yay, i can snuggle with her in the bed! and then she said goodnight and shut the door. what??? how rude!! ever since that day, i've never slept in the bed with her. i guess she trusts me to be on my own during the night. ha, little does she know what i do during the night!

and that is how i got to be here, living with my Mommy. december 2nd, 2000 is a great day for me, and i guess a great day for Mommy as well.

My First Thought

little does Mommy know how much i enjoy surfing the net while she's sleeping at night, or not around. she thinks i'm just enjoying HER computer chair (i hate when she yells at me to get out of her chair!), but i've got to tell ya, i've got her tricked real good. anyway, i see she likes to journal, or blog, or what-have-you. i see she talks about me often, so i thought hey, i need to start my own blog to talk about her! and i thought i'd share my other superior thoughts as well. so while Mommy is outside re-planting spider plants that she won't let me eat, i took over her chair and started my own blog! i'll try to talk about stuff on my mind, Mommy's crazy antics, my apparently crazy antics according to Mommy (whatever), and just my every day life. hopefully you'll enjoy it, but if not, i don't really care. i'm a cat, what do you expect? crap, Mommy's coming in, gotta go!
