I'm a good boy!

Mom's been slowly and carefully adding artificial and safe festive decorations to our little apartment. The fake poinsettia is on top of the fridge where I don't set paw (it's next to the off limits counter). Holiday plushies line the corner of the counter top. There are festive decorations on top of her media shelves too. The leftover brownies from Thursday are tucked away in tupperware in the fridge.

The 6 ft artificial tree is standing between those media shelves and a chair. The ssscat is positioned beneath the tree because thus far it is not securely anchored to anything. She got a fringeless tree skirt for it today and a lighted gold star topper so she's going to do the lights probably sometime on Monday - likely after her meeting. She knows she has plenty of safe ornaments to put on the tree and will not use hooks.

She used catnip spray on my cat tree next to the window and all over my cubes, toys and other allowed areas. I haven't had a chance to get into the tree because of the deterrents in place.

So Santa Paws when you visit purrrrlease remember to put things in my stocking for being a good kitty!


Black Cat Furiday

Mom isn't one of those crazy foolish people that goes shopping today. She got out of bed almost half an hour ago. She'd rather stay in with me and stay warm. We've been watching the snow fly out our apartment window. Just a coating, nothing too awful yet.

She's got plans to catch up on cleaning & laundry today. We haven't shared a holiday season (Christmas) together yet so she's gonna set up the tree without decorating it to see if I'm gonna do anything. It's surrounded on 3 out of 4 sides so she'd just need to secure it to the wall. She saved an empty tube from a paper towel roll to slip over the end of the light string and she has unbreakable ornaments she can put on higher branches. The ssscat will be under the tree and noisy cans on the furniture around the tree. The tree is a fake as well as the poinsettia.

She has a few cornbread muffins & brownies leftover so she's gonna brew some sweet tea after cleaning and enjoy a little southern comfort.


Strategic planning in place for tomorrow's cooking

Mom is starting to strategically plan for tomorrow when she'll be in the kitchen to make a couple contributions for Thursday. First she plans to put her hair up in the hairagami bun and cover it up with a hair net.

I cry if I'm in my crate while she's busy in the kitchen so I'll be hanging out in the bathroom while she's busy. She's going to try to keep her clothes clean since she's making a couple different things she will be contributing to the holiday meal with her extended human family who live in the area. She does not want hair from either of us to get into anything, and will be storing the finished results safely to deter me from taking any samples.

She's gonna order out for pizza tomorrow so she'll have something to eat in between the cooking.

Thursday she'll just get up as usual, give me some Fancy Feast turkey & watch the parade & have some toast. If her cousin's kitty isn't hiding she'll spend a little time with her.

This is our first Christmas together and her first ever with a cat so she's going to deal with the decorating thing as it happens over the coming weekend.


Happy Thanksgiving

Mom is on the mend and feeling better. She made blueberry muffins for herself this morning since she's got a lot of dishes to clean anyway later today. She's also gotta do laundry.

I just had an intense play session involving my favorite little yellow spring - she put it in my puzzle box so I had to fish it out first before I could make it my prey. She was laughing a lot since a spring is not natural prey enemy for us cats. After I wore myself out with that I had some more of my leftover Fancy Feast from this morning, now I'm settling down & getting ready to do what we do best - nap.

She took video of me working the spring out of the box so she'll put it online sometime soon.

On Weds mom will be busy in the kitchen making brownies & cornbread muffins for Thanksgiving day. She's planning to order a pizza for lunchtime delivery & eat it through the day. She goes to an aunt's a few streets away in town for the holiday meal. I'll stay home and eat my Fancy Feast turkey.


Trying to heal mom with purrs

Mom isn't feeling very good this weekend. Her throat has been sore for the past few days and now a headache accompanies that. No fever so she's perplexed, but resting & taking medicine to ease the symptoms & vitamins with plenty of rest & fluids. Her tummy hurts for another reason entirely.

I've been in time out for disrupting her sleep this morning but I'll be out soon so I can eat. Then when mom is done with her food we'll cuddle on the recliner a bit.


We're back!

Mom ran her CDs and now the computer works good as new. The only purrblem now is she needs to reset several forgotten passwords, like the one we used here on catster that she just had to reset.

I just got the stitches taken out of my ear at the vet so hopefully I won't have to go back there until my booster shot in March.

Mom has plans to be out in town this evening so she's gonna cone me to make sure my ear keeps healing properly, they told us to keep it. She'll be home tonight after the Christmas parade & high school play. She's an adult but has a cousin still attending and is in the play. They're doing Footloose.


Computer purrblems

Mom has noticed that every now and then the blue screen of death pops up and then the computer automatically restarts. This is starting to happen more frequently than she wishes so she put everything on ext hard drive and will be resetting computer after dinner tonight. She can't have this purrblem right now because she has lots of computer based stuff to do.

I go back to the vet Thursday afternoon to get the stitches out of my ear before mom has to get around town for stuff. She's also going to the Christmas light parade and school play that night but otherwise is staying home.


1 more week

I only have to wear the cone for 1 more week. My stitches come out just before next weekend and then hopefully I won't have to wear the cone. Mom might let me have a little break from wearing it today when I eat my wet food since I haven't groomed myself as much.

She's not completely sure what Brutus is gonna do with our area of west MN (we're not far from the Dakota borders) so she ran out to the stores last night to get more food for us and additional litter. She thinks of it like being a squirrel, better to get a little more than usual this time of year instead of being stuck out in a storm.


Mom is so excited for 2013

Wow, diary pick again huh?

There are 2 big reasons mom is looking forward to 2013. She's going to enjoy seeing Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift return with their entertaining shows.

She's also glad the vet took payments on my treatment since she's already gotta get the Kenny tickets when Dec begins. She also messed up her mom's car door/window (oops) so she's gotta get the tricky business plan outlines complete so she can get to work from home & start making a little extra spending $.

1 more week of wearing this e-collar. We're both looking forward to my not needing to wear it anymore. She keeps a check on the ear and it seems like its healing properly but not taking any chances of taking the cone off me just yet.


This darn e-collar I just wanna scratch my ear!

I'd love nothing more than to be able to scratch the ear that was just surgically corrected at the vet a few days ago but mom isn't allowing me to do that. She's not gonna take it off me 'til the stitches come out at the vet next week, and I'll have to wear the Thundershirt as well when I return. I like the Thundershirt and mom loves what it does for me in times of stress. I'll have to wear it on Weds for the storm siren & fire alarm. Mom is gonna take me into the bedroom & shut all the doors, maybe that'll help reduce the noise for the fire alarm.

They used a laser to help reduce my pain and they did the biopsy punch incisions. Mom still has a scar on her left index finger as well as on her chin from when she fell off the horse, so I guess we'll be a matching pair with minor scars.
