Finally. I'm able to cuddle with Lobo again. For many months he didn't like me around him. He just wasn't feeling well. The last while, I am able to rub up against him again and he gives me little flea bites. Mom took a video of us cuddling today. She took that as a sure sign that he is feeling good again. He even let me play with his ears. Video isn't on Youtube yet but will be sometime soon.
Mom bought me a new laser pointer. I never had a good one. The one Lucky used to have was pretty well broken by the time I got here. The other, just goes in circles by itself. This new one, Mom has to run it and can make it go wherever she wants. It is way more fun. And when it is not on, it just sits there and looks like a mouse with whiskers and everything! The reason Mom finally bought me one was that she found herself at the pet store to find a new collar for Lobo! His old one mysteriously vanished. While she was there, she FINALLY remembered to buy me a laser pointer. Thank you Lobo!

Well, Mom just rotated our cat tree!!!
We wore out the bottom part of our cat tree. Mom didn't have the money for a new one. So, she moved the worn out part to level three and moved level three down to level one.
cat tree rotation
What do you all think?
We are still very suspicious and have not played on it yet. But she just did that a half hour ago.
She was very sneaky and did this while we were out in our cat run.

A really big truck came to our house and a nice man brought us a package. In the package was not only our replacement bird feeder ... BUT TWO OF THEM!!!
Our New Bird Feeders!!
Mom and I couldn't believe it. Maybe they knew two kitties lived here and thought we should have two bird feeders???
We are very happy. Okay Mom! Put one up right now!

Remember when we got our new bird feeder last fall and how excited we were? This is a video from then:
The Bird Feeder When it Was New
Well, a few days ago, Mom was lowering it to refill it and the wire inside the feeder broke and it fell to the ground and broke. The part that broke was the metal part at the bottom where the little birdies perch on. And, the wire inside pulled loose. We were all upset. Especially Mom because she had replaced our plastic one (which after many years was cooked by the sun and broke into a million pieces when the bear smashed it) with a very expensive metal one. And she spent a lot of time and money to hang it so that the bears couldn't get at it. It cost over three times what the plastic ones cost. Anyhow, Mom went and bought just a plastic one to replace it because she couldn't find her receipt from last fall. But, it was still bugging Mom. So, she went back to the store with both feeders, the new one and the broken one, and asked if there was anything they could do for her. They still sold the expensive ones so they could see what brand it was and how much it cost. But, without a receipt, hmmm. The nice man called the company that sold them. He explained the story to them. Then he handed the phone to Mom and the lady from the company took her name and our address and is sending us a new one in the mail!!! Isn't that nice?
The store Mom bought it from is Rona, a home building supply store up here. The bird feeder is the "Birdscapes Watchtower Feeder". Mom will be sending them a big thank you and a link to our video to show how happy their feeder makes us kitties, and the birdies too! And she returned the unused plastic one. She had the receipt for that since she only bought it yesterday.

Mom knew when she left for work yesterday that we were onto yet another mouse. She came home at midnight and I showed her where it was hiding. So, she caught it and put it outside and said I was a real good kitty. Squirrel helped too but it was me that showed Mom exactly where it was hiding. It was in the bathroom behind the bucket with our cleaning supplies. She moved the bucket and I played with the mouse just a bit more while Mom got her mouse catching equipment. We hadn't hurt this one either. It was in fine shape. Then I went to bed and slept for ten hours straight!

The reason I look so tired in my latest photo is because ...
We have been mousing day and night! When Mom got home from work late last night, our work was done and we showed her where we had contained the mouse. It was under her big vacuum cleaner. She picked it up but couldn't see the mouse. It was little, but real smart. It was hiding in the middle of one of the wheels on it! Squirrel showed Mom where and tapped it. It then tried to run somewhere else and Squirrel and I made sure it didn't go under heavy furniture. It almost got away but Squirrel picked it up in her mouth (yuck!) and brought it back to the middle of the room. Mom then trapped it under the bowl. It was a young one but very fast and healthy. It sat there and groomed itself and even ate some of our leftover catnip that was on the floor. Then Mom picked it up and let it go outside. I was sure a tired little kitty after that. I'm getting much better at mousing.

She shredded a roll of paper towels. She is proud of herself and asked me to post her video in my diary. I said okay. Here it is:

I wasn't scared of the mouse, he just surprised me. I'm used to toy mice. Not real ones that run at you! Squirrel thinks she knows everything. Just because she has caught about 20 mice in her life. That doesn't mean a thing. Except that she is old.
Our mousing video will be coming soon. You will see that I did help.
