The Kitty Says...

Hi! Tiger here, checking in because my mom finds it impossible to blog right now. 

This is one of my favorite spots...on the arm of my mom's chair.

Things are going ok in this new house.  I love my special place under Dad's sink.  I go there when I don't want to be bothered and thankfully my family gets it and they leave me alone.  The other night I noticed these twirling blades on the ceiling and they scared me to death.  I don't know why I didn't notice them before...they are in EVERY room in this house!  Some of them twirl and some of them just stay still.  No matter how hard I try I just can't figure that out.  I thought they might come down from the ceiling and get me, but they seem to be staying in place for now, so I'm kind of getting used to them, but every now and then they freak me out.  For some reason my family finds this hilarious...I don't think that's very nice, do you? 

I really like my mom,  I love to sit on her lap and make her pet me.  I don't think she likes it as much as I do.  Probably because I make her nose itch and her eyes water.  Oh well, she'll just have to get used to it.  I think it kind of irritates my dad that I like her more than him, but he tries to hold me and I don't like that.  I am a very independent feline!  I also tricked her into giving me some yarn to play with, even after she told everyone she wasn't going to do that.  I love my yarn!  I am now plotting ways to get into the big yarn stash next to my mom's chair.  She keeps a pretty close eye on it though so I'm gonna have to be sneaky.

I have tricked the family into giving me lots of treats.  Except for that girl that brought me here.  She keeps telling everyone that I am going to get fat and spoiled.  She's probably right, but I think she should just mind her own business.

So, I heard my mom say she ordered a new computer.  She seemed really excited about it.  I'm excited too because I really don't like the noises my parents make when they try to use the computer they have now.  I'm a cat and even I can tell that thing is an antique!  I heard it's supposed to arrive in the next week or two and then mom can start blogging again.  She also said something about finally being able to get on Pinterest...I have no idea what that is, but it sounds addicting so I think she should watch out for that.  She also said she has a big family reunion to plan, pictures to organize and something about a Christmas letter.  Sounds like she will be spending lots of time on that new computer.  It better not cut into my petting time or I just might have to find a way to sabotage that thing!

Ok, time for me to crawl back under the sink and take a nap.  Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Cure! I'd like to know what goes on inside our cats' heads, but I have a feeling your tale isn't too far off the mark.

  2. Cute kitty! I love this post. Very well done Gerri :)
