6:21 AM – Sleeper sticks her nose in the Mama’s face; time to get up and feed all of us.
6:25 AM – we mill around the Mama’s feet meowing while she fixing our plates; Owl is the most obnoxiously loud.
6:30 AM – breakfast.
6:40 AM – I attempt to get out the door when the Mama steps out on the porch to feed the Ferals.
6: 45 AM – morning wash-up and toilet in the cattery.
7:00 AM – I and/or some of the others lay down in front of the kitchen sink and/or stove requiring the pawrents to step over us about a dozen times as they fix their breakfasts. Fun, hehehe…
7:30 AM – nap time.
8:00 AM – cattery viewing time: watching the Ferals; watching the pawrents move around outside, checking the garden, chainsawing the boxelder tree that split and came down day before yesterday; loading things in the car for work, etc…
8:35 AM – Fearless lies in front of the door to make sure no one gets through it without us knowing about it.
8:40 AM – Sleeper jumps on the bathroom sink so the Papa will turn on the water for her.
9:00 AM – I run into the hallway when the door is opened and have to be retrieved from under the stairs.
9:30 AM – pawrents leave for work; time for bed.
1:30 PM – wake up long enough to check the food bowls: empty. Go back to sleep.
5:30 PM – Mama and/or Papa come home; time for dinner!
5:40 PM – time for walks. What do you mean it’s too hot to walk?!!!
5:45 PM through around 10:00 PM – check the food bowls a few dozen times until the Mama relents and gives us a little more kibble (we’re all still dieting because of Sleeper – thanks a lot, Sleep.) Lay around; play some; check to see if there’s any action going on outside the cattery.
10:30 PM – Pawrents lay down; I come to tuck them in with a few licks and head bonks. Lights out.
10:35 PM – Owl starts meowing for no apparent reason. The Mama gets up to check on him.
10:40 PM – night patrol.
1:00 AM – Fearless is crying at the door to go out for a walk. The Papa sprays her with the water bottle.
1:30 AM – Owl knocks the kitchen stepladder over; the Mama jumps out of bed in a fright; everyone scatters except Sleeper who remains calmly on the couch.
5:00 AM – Owl and Fearless start a highspeed game of chase through the house, leaping up over the pawrents; the Papa sprays them; the Mama just groans and rolls over. I jump on the stove. Jump down a moment later when I get sprayed.
6: 21 AM – we do it all over again. Have a nice day!
Sounds like a purrfect day to me!
Well you kit kats sure know how to keep your pawrents on their toes-MOL!
It was an even better day today since it cooled down enough this evening so we got our walks - yay!
How hot is it? It was super hot here! Not even the bitds were out!
Sounds like you all keep the pawrents busy. And, um, did I hear you call my girl Sleeper f-a-t?
That was supposed to say "birds"!
Sounds like y'all keep your pawrents busy!
Tiger, it was in the 90's for a few days, but after the mini-storm blew through, we got a break of 10 degrees and more. I see looking at the weather forecast, that Weds we have a predicted high of 84 and a low of 48!!!
Hi, Jezzie! Yes, we do our best to keep the pawrents in shape, hehehe...
Oh, and Tig - Sleeper has lost some weight - yay!
And we thought the schedule here was packed...
We have cooler weather a bit lower down in this beautiful peninsular state...and rain, too...though most of the rain was north of here. Did you get watered?
We hope you all came through last weeks bad storms safely...our Church in K'zoo was cancelled due to no power and trees are still down over there, what a mess!
Congrats on being DDP, today!
Meowmy has to work, and other not-Catster junk, so she can't picture your purrtiness...but we know you will have a wonderfur day, nevfurtheless.
It's hard work being a cat. So much mischief to do. No wonder we need to sleep so much.
WeBees - yes, it's cool and raining here now; supposed to fall as low as 48 or so one night this week. Is this July in Michigan or have we entered a time warp or an alternate universe???
Bear - you are so right!!! ;)
No kidding...its like September or early October...though once meowmy had to borrow summer garb from her sister while visiting her in the Toronto area, in October, Sheesh, it was 85! They call that area the Great White North, MOL!
We didn't get much above 60 today, and on the way too and from her work, it was raining, but it was more like drizzle.
A far cry from last years drought!
Good point, WBS! I'd rather have this than drought. Right now at 8:10AM it's 58.
