My new home so far

Wow - I have my own social network page! And my own diary! Lucky I know how to type, eh? ;)

I'm very happy with the way things worked out for me. After a long day of travel, I got to explore my new home. The new humans are quite interesting. I've been teaching my new Mum some kitty songs. She told me she speaks fluent feline, and she does quite well, but she does have the most peculiar accent! But she is learning quickly - I sing and she repeats. A very good student indeed.

Now that I know she has potential and is trainable, I shall have to work out the next lesson plan after she learns all of my songs. The possibilities are endless. I do so appreciate obedient humans.


Appetite lost and found.

My new mum and dad thought I lost my appetite with all of the excitement of a new home. But really I didn't. I knew exactly where it was the whole time, I was just too busy to pay it any mind! But now I've eaten a whole bowl of food and Mum said that I got my appetite back. It was never gone! I do have my priorities.

Do humans often lose their appetites? Do they forget where they left them?


Just playin'...

Okay, so I've been having fun getting my new Mum to sing with me (and giggling at her attempts when she's out of earshot) and I needed to find a way to have a little fun with Dad. Here's what I do. I sit in front of him, looking up with a wistful look on my face. (It's one that nearly all cats know humans cannot resist.) When he reaches down to give me a little scratch behind the ears, I move away - just a little. So he moves closer to the edge of his chair and reaches down to stroke my back. I move away a little more. I'm sure you can see the pattern here. I'm having fun seeing just how far he'll reach. It's fun testing new humans.


The Lap of Luxury

My new mum didn't know if I was inclined to be a 'lap cat'. Although I am very happy here, I am still working on trust issues and get a bit nervous being picked up and wasn't so sure about sharing her human chair with her. So I took it one step at a time - first I hopped up next to her - just so say hi and get a quick stroke on the head. Then the next time I settled in next to her leg. She said I was a 'paralap cat'. But this morning, I took that huge leap of trust and snuggled up on her lap. She made one of those big smile faces humans make when they are pleased. I find that face very amusing so I may sit on her lap again later for my own entertainment. Humans are so easily trained and controlled. Every cat should have at least one.


Alternative Health Care

So it was like this...

My new mum is having pain in her knee. Doctor Thomus to the rescue! I settled in on her lap to assess the situation and decided that my own combination of massage and accupuncture would be the best treatment. I got straight to work but was rudely interrupted when she thought she was being so smart by telling me, 'That's not the right knee.'

Silly, silly human! Of course I know her left knee isn't right! Feline friends, I ask you - is there hope for this one??


Rainy faces

I know my new mum still misses her Suzy who went to the rainbow bridge last month. When she thinks about her, it makes her face rain. She has told me lots about Suzy and she particularly misses when Suzy slept in her lap when Mum would lie on the couch and read. I thought maybe I would do that and it would make her happy. I settled in exactly the way she described... and her face started raining! I didn't want to make that happen!! But then I noticed she was making one of those big smile faces at the same time, so I guess it was all good.

Maybe I should have looked for a rainbow!

Well, Dad thought I don't purr. Mum noticed that I do, but so very quietly, you can only feel my purr, not hear it. We had a long talk about this. I finally admitted that by purring so softly that my humans can't hear, they try all the harder to get me to purr and I get more cuddles. I was a little disappointed in myself for admitting that because now she's on to me. But she assured me that I will still get lots of cuddles, and extra ones as she tries to find the little vibration purr I make.

She told me that people sometimes do the same sort of thing and that they have something called a poker face so no one knows what they are thinking. I guess I have a poker purr. ;)


The Hunt is On!

Mum went out yesterday and came home with bags and bags of food - all for me! She must be an amazing hunter! She said she is determined to find my absolute most favouritest food and will continue hunting until she finds it.

I like the way she thinks!


The Horror!!!

I did not get to write in my Cat-a-blog yesterday because I was too busy sulking and Mum was too busy saying how sorry she was. Can you believe she tried to put a necklace on me??? I need no adornment. I'm purrfect as is!

She claims that it's for my safety. I haven't ventured outside yet and she said that she wants me to wear a necklace with my phone number when and if I do - just in case. She said that if people see a kitty with a lovely necklace, they will know that he's not a stray and that he is a homeowner. And if I wander too far and furget the way home, a nice human could call her if I had my phone number with me.

I told her I'd prefur my own mobile phone. Surely that would show the world that I am a homeowner. And I could call if needed.

And of course she had to ask which of my pockets I intended to carry it in. We have a name (in my native language, known to some as Catese, Catch, Meowish or Purrican) for humans like that, but it would not be polite to use such language here.



Turning the tables

It seems my new mum doesn't want me to walk on her table. But I keep trying. She said that it's not an 'appropriate' place for kitty feet so I asked why that was so. She explained that the table is where she eats so kitties shouldn't walk there. So I pointed out that my 'table' is the kitchen floor and she has no problem walking on that! Ha!

So now I'll see what she has to say about that!

I'm waiting.......
