I've been such a good boy that mom gave me a slightly early celebration although my purrday isn't until Saturday. I got my new playground from wayfair a couple months ago. I also got a turbo scratcher with the ball in track that goes around & around and also the most funnest toy ever Da Bird! OMC it's been so much fun playing with the new things and she let me keep the box it was delivered in!

On my actual purrday she's gonna give me Sheba canned tuna cat food and meow out Happy Birthday just for me-ow and wear her Halloween cat stuff.

 

Anticipation

Thanks to Catster for making me a DDP today. We've been busy here lately and mom is on the mend, though the antibiotics are making her feel funky at times.

She's trying to catch up on digital design requests now since she had to shut down business the past week or so. There's a lot to do so when she gets a break we play laser chase, it's my favorite!

Her birthday is a month from today so wants to be completely rid of the infection, have good bacteria built back up and have her flu vaccine and whatever else she needs vaccine-wise to cuddle her new nephew coming in the next couple months.

My birthday is coming next month as well so I'm anticipating what I may get for my 3rd birthday. I was already a year old when I arrived at my current home.

I haven't heard her sniffle, cough or sneeze as much the past couple days.

Tonight she'll be downstairs for the apartment-wide pizza party then will return after it without playing bingo for a live online radio show that's typically every Monday night for a couple hours. She has to still take it easy and avoid much contact with others since her immune defense is down for now. She'll be eating yogurt soon to start getting good bacteria.

 

Substandard service while sick

Mom is so glad she got me an auto water & dry food dispenser. She just has to open my can of wet food in the morning. The water needs changing and my litter box needs to be scooped into the litter genie but its not her fault the service has been lacking lately since she's been sick.

She's thinking she'll handle the scooping thing with gloves due to the antibiotics. They're starting to give her a few minor side effects and she's gonna need some probiotics in a few days. She has some Yoplait yogurts leftover so is saving them for that.

She changed the batteries in my laser pointer so we're playing with that and my other wand toys. Now is not a good time for her to be bitten or scratched by my back claws so we're being careful.

She's also gotta try to catch up on laundry and vacuum my hairball stains out of the living room carpet. She's gonna wait and do full cleaning another time.

 

Sick day

Mom went to see Taylor Swift a couple hours away on Friday night. They left early enough that there was no delays in traffic (unlike the twin cities where it's always seems to be stop & go). She was right in front of the main stage in the standing only pit next to where the steps connect the catwalk to the main stage so she had quite a view of everything right in front of her.

Unfortunately she wasn't feeling the best due to extreme hay fever allergies which have gotten so out of hand she feels like she has a sinus infection and now she's coughing more. So she's planning on going to Urgent Care this afternoon at the clinic and will just walk over while they finish their lunch break. She's done everything she can for it at home and has had enough.

I'm ok now but I left a hairball in the living room last night. She cleaned it up first thing when she got up this morning since we're waiting on the caretaker to come tend to the squeaky door under the bathroom sink. It's silent when you open it but when you shut it it creaks pretty loudly. She hopes it only needs a touch of grease.

 

Busy summer coming to a close

Mom has been busy pretty much since late June so she relishes the chance to rest up this week. But not tomorrow cuz she's going to Taylor Swift's show in Fargo but coming home after the show. She's going to sit up with me and go through the photos cuz she doesn't think she'll be getting much sleep immediately when she gets home.

She's been gathering things today and put them in the tote bag with Taylor's cat on it. It holds her mini costume pieces (unicorn with wings), glow things, mini notebook she jotted down merch she has and doesn't have. There's still plenty of room for her camera and the tickets for her mom & aunt. She's gotta eat when she gets to town and go to the box office to pick up her pit ticket.

She's gotta replace batteries in a worn out glow stick and then will be taking all of them out of those after the show for my laser pointer, fun!

A little elementary school half an hour from us won the Target contest so they'll be having a celebration party with Luke Bryan, Gabby Doublas & others so mom might go to that.

 

Finally, a break!

Mom has been super busy since July. She finally has a few days to just sit, breathe & relax. So she's taking a break from almost everything the rest of this week through the weekend before things ramp up for the next couple of weeks. Plus she'll be hanging with family this weekend while almost everyone is here.

The weather has been fairly mild and dry air. We had a hailstorm and almost a tornado a couple weeks ago, neither of us were happy with that. We had to take shelter immediately and bolt down the stairs and stay in our safe spot for at least 30 minutes.

Mom just got some new crayons the other day & bought colored pencils & new markers yesterday (all Crayola) so she's been coloring more often lately. She'll just go online, find coloring pages & print them instead of buying a book to color in. She'll probably do some coloring on these off days, catch up on other things that outta be done & spend more time with me.

 

What a day & night it was

Mom got up yesterday & quickly ate some toast before walking over to the clinic/hospital to join her bro & his girlfriend. They were getting the halfway ultrasound to check on the baby and they found out that it's a boy and yes just one. So I might be my mom's baby boy but I won't be the only one in her life much longer.

They went out for lunch to celebrate then came here so my mom could scan the ultrasound photos & print copies while they played with me once we were acquainted.

So the fair is in town and last night they put on a 15 minute fireworks show. Fun for mom to watch from our living room, but I hid in my crate with my Thundershirt on once they got started.

 

We're ok

We went through a really scary storm a couple hours ago that had a tornado warning on it. At first we were gonna hide in the bathroom, but then mom decided to go to the stairs instead once it went from severe storm to tornado. We didn't even stop to look at it we just went for cover as fast as she could get the both of us down low as possible in the stairs.

It's clouding up again with a tornado watch still on for the next couple hours so we're being cautious and keeping up with the weather. The cable got really fuzzy after the storm passed (it dropped hail) quickly. There was a funnel cloud but it didn't get all the way to the ground.

Mom washed her dirty dishes earlier before the storm and ordered herself a pizza. Seems like every year when the fair is coming to town it just has to be nasty weather.

 

You did WHAT?

Mom went to the gym Tuesday from 4 - 6 for strength training & cardio - which I understand. But then around 5:00 she suited up and got in the swimming pool for another workout - WHAT??????????? Why would anyone willingly get into a water filled pit? She took her towel with Taylor Swift's cat photos all over it.

She rode her bike there too and walked most of the way home pushing the bike next to her as her legs were aching after all the activity. She put her feet up and moved as little as possible.

Her new kitty themed Taylor Swift Keds arrived yesterday much to our delight. She hasn't got new shoes in a while so this was a treat to get 2 new pairs. She got the pink ones with cats on them as seen here on Catster and a nay pair with paw prints on them. She's wearing the pink ones today to start getting used to them.

She also got a discount yesterday when picking up her prescription refills so she bought a corded & cordless phone set. She's gonna have to make sure she can buzz in guests when the doors are locked. Before all she had was a normal streamline phone w/o caller ID so she had to buy separate caller ID and answering systems, so having it all together is a space saver. The cordless handset is plugged in in the bedroom on the shelves near her bed.

It's looking like a rainy day for us so we'll be home all day. She's gonna go down for a game of Wheel of Fortune this afternoon, maybe stay for bingo too. Saturday she's going to another concert but this one is closer to home and she may just come home after its over.

My current tower will be moved into the bedroom (window corner with my sun seat) this evening because my new playground should be coming sometime tomorrow!

 

Spending the refund

Mom did a little shopping yesterday. She bought the newest fragrance by Taylor Swift and wandered the entire mall just to find a pair of Keds to try on for sizing. She also bought pizza sauce, cheese & pepperoni slices for homemade pizza subs on her long bread loaves.

She ordered 2 pairs of Taylor's cat themed Keds (the ones with cats & hearts for $35 sale and the paw prints) in the size she chose yesterday. Then on Wayfair she ordered us a rubber band ball (we're both gonna play with it) and I'm getting this new cat playground!

She still has a little local shopping left to do in a few days. She'll get a discount coupon when she picks up her next prescription refill in a couple days so will be using that for a better home phone and a new purse, maybe 2.

This coming week is pretty tame other than the shopping and downstairs events on Thurs afternoon at the apartment so she's gonna get totally qualified on elance & odesk to start trying for clients and regular income.
