What a night

Terrible storms, spider crawling in the window and me, a black cat. Mom feels like she was in one of those scary movies! Anyway the storm got real bad about 10 to 10:30 last night (so bad they called a severe warning) so Mom and I hung out in the bathroom until we learned that it was just narrowly gonna miss us but hit the next town where her mom & brother live. She slept about as bad as the first night I was here trying to get to know my new home.

She believes her mom & brother are ok but that the power might have gone out due to the storm. She always gets e-mail and hasn't yet today. There were others with tornado warnings again about an hour away, so she's relieved that did not happen here. That would have made her sick knowing it would have just missed us and gone down to her family.

It was still quite a sight watching it out the window. I love to be right at the window but mom thinks that's pretty dangerous so I watched it from inside my carrier from farther away. It started lightning again after mom laid in bed for the night so knowing what a goofball I am she put me in the bathroom without any windows. Funny how calm and great the weather can be between the storms.


So noisy!

We dodged that bad weather yesterday that made tornadoes around us. Had it hit us we would've heard the storm siren just like the test an hour ago and would've sought shelter.

Minutes after the storm alarm test ended then it was time for the painfully loud fire alarm test that mom and I hate. She is very smart (like me) and got the idea to vacuum through it. I hate that vacuum and hissed when I saw it come out but I stayed put on the window and allowed her to proceed after moving things out of the way. She was already done with the living room when the alarm finally went off but she turned it on again and swears it helped her, I think it might have helped me too.

Of course we don't ignore the real alarms, only when they test them. Now that the monthly alarm tests are done and Mom is done vacuuming (for now, laundry break in that room 2 floors down) I'm finally curling up to take my cat nap. Mom thinks she might take one too since I woke her up an hour before her alarm this morning. I know she gets up at 9 but I think she should be up around 8, we fight about that.


Hot n stormy

The weather has warmed up drastically today and we're under a tornado watch until 10 tonight, that started at 3:00 this afternoon. So far we're fine, but we did have a little bit of small hail. Mom grabbed the camera and then I jumped up in frame for a closer look. It could've got worse so she shut me in my crate after filming for a few minutes just in case we had to take shelter.

The sun is out again already here but it's not so safe east of us. We're glad that we're gonna be fine but she's going out on Friday near where the bad weather is right now.


Mama's happy (and so am I)

Mom is in a great mood today because her concert tickets for Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw at Target Field in MN have finally arrived! She looks forward to being in the sand bar & taking lots of pictures of them.

Depending on who is willing and able to take care of me a couple of days I will not be home either. I'll either stay with someone in our family, the friend and her cats if we get along when she's at the game or a pet place near her Mom's. I sure don't want to disturb her pre-show rest and she doesn't have a spare key for anyone to help me out while she's away. Our apartment gets very warm if not hot in the afternoon sun and the a/c works but has to be run manually (flip switch or turn dial).

I know we'll both have a good time so we can't wait for July! Back to my cat nap, meow for now!

Mom furgot to tell me she took a shower earlier so when I went to check out the shower stall my tail and paws got wet!

She's wearing her kitty slipper socks, they have sticky paw prints on the bottom so she doesn't slip on the hard floor parts.

Gotta go lick myself 'til I'm dry again.


Loving my home

Now that I'm used to being here I love it! I even stretch out on my own comfy bed more often now. Spring is here and I'm seeing all kinds of Cat TV life out the 4th story window! Mom keeps them closed now because we have air conditioning (with built in fan) for warmer days and she is so allergic to the outdoors.

Unlike other cats my mom knows, I sniff everybody that I don't know when they come in and rub against them if I like them. I'm a people cat. Her mom is allergic to me so I can't rub against her and she doesn't visit much.

Mom is planning to leave me with a friend and her 2 cats when she goes to a baseball game in June so we'll find out how we 3 cats get along. Mom will send my food (including treats), a blanket, the shirt she wore. She visited the boarding place today and decided the cat room is cute but really small, but they have giant kennel crates with shelves in them. It's right off the grooming room but they keep the cat room door shut so the dogs can't scare us. There were a few dogs there but no kitties. Mom worries about leaving me home alone because sometimes the neighbors' cooking sets off the smoke detectors and there could even be a fire!

The people at Catster sure enjoy my diary to feature it for the second time! Sure brightens this cool, rainy day for mama and me!

She's busy still trying to make sense of business plans. Web sites and graphics are easy, plans aren't as simple. She can't read minds either so she can't help anyone that won't tell her what they want.

Mama and I aren't total scaredy cats about today being Friday the 13th. I'm a black cat and I'm always in mama's path. We even opened an umbrella inside, how delightful! I hope you're having as lucky of a day as we are.
