I'm in Training

We got my new stroller yesterday afternoon. Grampster brought it in the house folded up. I found an open flap and climbed in before mama could set the stroller up and push it into the living room.

Once the stroller was in the living room, mama got some treats and threw some of my favorite toys into the stroller. The back was open, and I dived right in after the toys. Mama started feeding me my favorite treats, making me come out of the stroller and follow her around the house, then go back and jump into the stroller on "command." She thinks I was obeying her commands; silly mama. I did jump in and out of the stroller, but it was only a fun game for me. Then mama started feeding me treats from the front so I would go WAY far into the stroller and look ahead. After a little while mama took the brake off and started moving the stroller REAL slow with me in it. I could have told her I would not be afraid. After all, I like to leap on her steno chair and make it spin around and around until mama says she gets dizzy just watching me. All the while I just there watching things spin around. I always knew the world revolved around me. MOL. I stayed in the stroller even though I was not zipped in. We went out into the kitchen and turned around real slow. We did a few trips around the house, and mama fed me more treats. I had to make mama think I was just a teensy bit nervous to make sure I got plenty of treats. Mama gave me a rest and then later we did the getting in and out of the stroller again. This time mama put the back flap down and wheeled me around the house. I didn't cry or try to get out.

This morning we did the getting in and out of the stroller for treats again. Mama was having a hard time getting me to get out of the stroller. I thought I should stay there, and she could feed me treats all day long. Today mama put the back flap down like I was zipped into the stroller, and we wheeled around the house at almost a normal walking speed. I thought it was pretty cool. More treats, mama! More treats, and I will ride in the stroller all day.

Later I got my harness on to practice wearing it. I don't really mind it, but I always think I can't jump when I first get it on. Mama threw a treat in and got me to jump into my stroller wearing my harness. She said that was a mistake because later she found me on top of the miniature log cabin my grampster made for mama. I looked like a giant panther on the roof, and I could see out the window real good. ;) Course, mama yelled and made me jump down. I did it a few more times and got yelled at, but then I got too tired to be naughty anymore.

I helped mama put clean sheets on the bed. I am VERY good at bed making. Just ask mama; she will tell you all about it.

The sticky duck tape is still on the phone table, and I have not tried to leap onto the armoire. Just in case, mama put a rope basket where the very breakable vase was and put the vase WAY UP HIGH where even I catnot reach it. I guess you could say I am an interior decorator now too. I am helping mama find the most pleasing (and safe) arrangement for her stuff.

Hey, how bout that hocky score? Will we have another miracle on ice?

 

Whoa! Treats

Jeepers, somekitty gave me a TON of treats! Whoever you are, THANKS A BUNCHY! Fishy snacks are on me, everybuddy. :)

I am getting my stroller this afternoon. Mama is looking at patches and license plates for the stroller, and she is also looking at some doggles for me. Sometimes I get real squinty in bright sunlight. Any kitties have doggles? If so, do you like em?

 

Stroller, Stroller!

My stroller got here yesterday, and mama could not wait for daddy to come and put it together, so mama asked my grampster if he would put my stroller together. Grampster said yes, so he is putting my stroller together today! Mama checked on his progress this afternoon, and my stroller had two wheels on it already, and grampster said he had not been working on it very long. I am just SURE my stroller will be finished so mama can bring it home tomorrow after work.

My grampster is 83, and I think he is the very best grampster in the whole world! When the weather is bad, he takes me to my doctor appointments, and when he comes to our house he scoops me up and holds me and pets me and calls me his little buddy.

On another subject, mama and I are VERY tired of winter. We know we have not had the terrible weather like some parts of the country, but we are tired of white. There is white stuff on the ground, white stuff on the trees, white stuff on the road, white stuff coming out of the sky, and even the sky is white. We always get snow, but mostly the snow comes, it gets really cold, and then all of a sudden it gets really warm and all the snow goes away. It is called a chinook.

This winter the snow just came and stayed here, and we are getting pretty tired of it. Mama has been clomping around outside in Yak-Trax for months now. Mama says the preferred color is green. I am not sure what green looks like, but as long as it is not cold, I think I would like it.

 

Drain Thief

Last night in the middle of the night I could not sleep, so I invited mama to play with me. She was not very enthusiastic about it, but she did pick me up and hold me for a minute. Then she kissed me and put me in my room. She walked out and shut the door and locked me in my room! I wailed a couple of times, but she did not come to let me out, so I took a kitten nap. Later mama was sort of awake. She could hear me playing in my room, but she thought I was playing with my toys. This morning she came into the bathroom and saw a funny-looking thing on the floor. She bent over to inspect it. Then she started laughing. I sat in the sink and pulled on the drain thingie until I got it loose. Then I carried it over to the edge of the lav top and threw it off onto the floor. Later I played with it and batted it around on the floor. Mama said "Yuck, Gunnie! I hope there weren't any deadly germs or mold on that." I just looked at her and pretended I didn't understand. She was shaking her head when she walked out, and I heard her muttering "What will he think of next?" That is my secret...

 

Booby Traps

Mama has booby-trapped the armoire! I never would have thought my mama could be so mean. I have only been on the armoire three times, and she is already trying to stop me. Last night she moved the little phone table that I was using for a springboard. She moved it way back and thought I couldn't jump that far. Later she heard a noise and then a big thump as she was walking into the room. Yeppers, I dived off the top again before she could catch me. Mama did not say much. She kind of shook her finger and told me I was naughty. Then she went and ate some dinner. Later she was very bizzy finding cardboard. She went to her little toolbox and got a big roll of silver stuff. Then she started unrolling the silver stuff and putting pieces onto the cardboard. When she finished, she put a piece on top of the phone table and laid one on the seat. I waited until she was not watching, and then I went over and sniffed at them. It is TAPE! STICKY, STICKY TAPE! I thought my mama loved me, but she has booby-trapped my phone table springboard with yucky, sticky tape. I do not know if I can ever trust her again.

 

Kiwees

Last night I didn't get my playtime because mama was trying to get rid of a nasty computer program called "Kiwee Toolbar." Mama felt bad. She thought we got it from surfing places looking for toys for my Catster page. It turned out it came from Webshots. My mama was hopping mad. Kiwee is a bad little "aggressive add-on" that does not want to uninstall. Mama fought with it for four hours using some instructions from my uncle Gary, who built our computer. Finally Kiwee "appears" to be gone. I guess last night was not the time for me to learn naughty new tricks.

 

Oops...Busted!

Last night mama was fighting with a nasty little unwanted program on our computer until late. When she finished, she went to the kitchen to get something to eat. She heard a noise and came into the living room to find me. She looked all around the room, but she couldn't find me. Then some movement caught her eye. She looked up, and I was on top of the oak armoire that daddy made for our TV. It is almost six feet tall. I hopped onto the little old phone table and leaped almost straight up about three feet onto the armoire. When mama first saw me, I was sitting right next to a very spensive Roseville vase. Mama walked over real slow and took the vase down. I looked scared, and she hoped it was because I didn't want to be so high. She got me down, and then she told me how naughty I was. She decided to leave the vase somewhere else for the evening. This morning while mama was eating breakfast she heard a noise. She came into the living room, but I was too fast for her. She heard a loud THUMP. That was me leaping off the top of the armoire. Mama is worried because there is a huge picture of my sister on an easel up there. It has glass on it, and she is running out places to put spensive and breakable things where I can't find them. She is also worried that I will hurt myself jumping so far while I am still so young. I think she is planning some mean trick like putting a tape covered piece of cardboard on top of the phone table so I can't use it for a springboard. Mama says who needs Sodoku to keep your mind sharp when you have a kitten?

 

I'm Getting a Stroller!

I am so excited. For Valentine's Day mama and daddy decided to buy me a stroller! They ordered it last evening, and it has already been shipped. As soon as it gets here and daddy puts it together, mama will start innerducing me to it. Mama and daddy talked it over, and they both agreed strolling is something they think I would like. I am not a fraidy cat, and I like to be with mama and daddy as much as possible. I will be traveling with mama and daddy with the camp trailer when they go on vacation this summer. They usually stay at a KOA, and every evening after dinner they take a walk around the camperground. Instead of staying home by myself, I will get to stroll around the camperground and see all the people and other pets, but I will be safe in my stroller. The new stroller is made to go on grass and gravel too, so mama and daddy can take me just about anywhere. I am already thinking about places I want to go in my stroller; to see my doctor, to shop at Petco, campering, and to the park. Mama let me join the Super Strollers group so we can get advice from seasoned kitty strollers. Mama wants me to LOVE strolling.

Daddy is already planning to put a license plate with my name on it on the stroller, and he thinks it should have flames on the sides like a hotrod. I catnot wait to get my stroller and become a "super stroller."

 

Innerducing...My Cousin Cats!

My cousin cats have come to Catsterland! I am excited. My cousins live in Nevader. I was packing my little kittycase to go visit when mama told me it was WAY too far to coyote trot to Nevader. I was sad that I couldn't go to visit but now we can visit and play in Catsterland.

My first cousin is Angel Cake. Angel's name was Angel even before she left for the bridge.

My second cousin is Oliver Pippin. Ollie was rescued from the desert when he was just a kitten.

My third cousin is Meredith. Merry thinks she is a princess.

If you would like to get to know my cousin cats, just send them a friend request. I am sure they would love to know you!

 

I Am A Sneak Thief!

Mama has discovered another of my talents. I am a sneak thief. I wait until mama is busy, and then I get into things I am not supposed to play with and carry them off. Mostly they are little things that she would not notice until she finds them on the floor. First it was the little antique leather hair curler thingies. She found one on the floor and put them away in a drawer. Next it was an antique celluloid hairpin. I should not have played with it and then left it where mama would see it. Now the hairpin is gone too. What's a kitten to do? My toys are OK, but mama and daddy's toys are better.
