The blizzard yesterday shut down UPS, so they just dropped off 2 boxes with new things for me! Mom got me a squeaky mouse, leash & harness set and a couple of training aids (ssscat refill and a noise spray to make me stop doing what I shouldn't be doing.

I'll try on my harness after my nap. Mom will make sure I have lots of treats and take it slow just like when I learned to wear my collar.

Mom has been shopping online a lot lately so there will be more boxes to come!

Mom has been busy on her computer the past few days. She's wrapping up the last sections for her business plan and gives up on applying for work.

She also made several bows for our furriend Luna the Fashion Kitty and will be sending them probably just after Easter for her birthday. She picked out some beautiful tulle & ribbon. I had the pleasure of watching her make them with her bowdabra. I almost got to wear one, ha! She doesn't know how they stay on kitties' heads so all she can do is hold one to my head to make sure the size is ok.

Mom spent Weds night online to see what Taylor Swift's set list is from opening night and played each song as it popped up on Twitter. She was pretty excited since she's going to a show much later in the tour. She took a look at the photos but has refrained from watching video, so there are still mysteries to come Sept 6th. She already has a plan of the new Swift tour merch to order in August and probably upgrade from 18th row to the stage pit with her rent refund.

Tomorrow night is the opening night of Kenny Chesney's tour. Mom is also going to see him so she hopes someone will update so she can listen to the same song being played while she browses for the newest merch. Shipping is free so she might order a couple things.

She also got some stuff ordered recently from petco and petsmart via their web sites. I'm getting a harness & leash and a squeaky mouse to play with. She also ordered a refill for the ssscat and a waterless thing to correct behavior issues.


Ugh what a day!

It started out like any other day. Mom got up, took her prescriptions and gave me my food. We played together a while until my energy was worn down, then cuddled through the scary noisy tests of the tornado siren & fire alarm. She was petting me and saying its ok its not real just a test good boy.

Then after that I was still lying in my bed while she was getting things together to head out. I assumed she would be going alone as usual but nope, she put me bed and all in the carrier and took me to the vet. AHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I was due for the annual distemper shot and to try to figure out why I've been going pica lately. Mom's gonna put me back on Purina indoor and see if that helps.

Mom is considering getting a leash and harness so I can safely explore the apartment backyard once the snow is all gone and the weather is good. The screened window is great but she doesn't mind getting a safe way for me to go out a couple times a week - never in the rain.


New stuff

Mom took advantage of a recent deal from the Taylor Swift online store. There were $25 tote bags with a free beach towel, so naturally she picked the one with Meredith the kitty on the bag and it came with a giant beach towel covered with pics of that kitty. She also added a pillow of Taylor and Meredith. I checked out the new things purrrsonally while mom snapped away with her camera taking photos and videos but I still prefer the box it all came in.

I do like the tote bag. But not as much as THE BOX!


Cough cough *HAIRBALL*

I had a couple "hairballs" within the past hour. Mom grabbed part of the paper she gets every Saturday & set it under me and allowed me to get them out without making a mess on the carpet. She just cleaned the other day and I hairballed a couple weeks ago as well, so I got a prompt and thorough grooming with hairball malt treat. I also took a refreshing sip of water from my dish, she put fresh tap in it for me.

She's still trying to get it out of her head so she can have a few Oreos & milk.

The day wasn't all bad, we played a while in the early afternoon when I was all revved up and hypurr. I was chasing the laser on the wall and fell into my cardboard box! Mom burst out in a major fit of the giggles & had to wipe tears from her eyes.

And I got to inspect a purple toboggan sled. She noticed the snow covered mini hills in the backyard so since spring doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon (and her bike is still stashed away) she's gotta do something fun. Now that the arctic air is staying where it belongs she'll try to get out on it in a few days when the weather stays consistent.


Gotcha day

We can't believe it's been a whole year since I started my new life. Mom gave me my favorite Chicken Fancy Feast & a bunch of treats. We've been cuddling & playing between my naps.

There isn't much going on since we just got a foot of fresh snow and we're enjoying watching other people clean it up from our apartment, haha!


It's Puppy Bowl Day!

We are so excited to hang out with yummy snacks and enjoy watching the cute puppies and kitties this afternoon! This is our first time watching together since I arrived the day before the Grammy's. She'll have pizza/pizza rolls later with Coke Zero.

Mom doesn't care about football so will not be watching the real thing tonight. She'd rather sit down and get some productive business things done.

She'll be hanging with family next weekend when an out of state cousin is here but wishes they'd do something more than sit around & drink. The weather will actually be good so it'd be a good time to go out and play in all this fresh snow that keeps coming now.


Helping mom

Mom is seriously unhappy today. The reason is that her home area in north GA has been under threat of storms & tornadoes and 2 twisters have hit within 45 minutes of where she still calls home. She still has family & friends there and not everyone is online very much, so she's probably going to be making calls on speaker on her smart phone while washing dishes this evening, and then making a video during laundry.

I curled up and purred on her lap but she still bawled when she saw her only girl cousin down home was under a tornado warning, and the internet radio was playing "My Hometown".

Since nobody does much video chatting to her she's turned the web cam into a kitty cam to see what I'm up to without turning away while she's on the computer.


What a day!

Mom caught up on cleaning the apartment. Then she took a break before rearranging the living room. She finally got rid of the recliner just last night so she had to clean up loose fur that was under there first.

She still has the swivel rocking chair so she moved that to where the recliner used to be, and bought a fold down ottoman, so now she can decide when she wants to kick up her heels. She was fighting with that recliner forever.

Anyway she thought the media shelves with movies should be located next to the tv, so first she moved the decor & book shelves out of the way. Then she moved the media shelves where she wanted. This took so long to do with taking everything off the shelves, placing them and then placing things back on them. When the media shelves were done she took a breather and then put the decor/book shelves where the media shelves used to be in the corner of the living room and arranged them.

In between the shelves she placed my kitty cubes, toy basket and other things I like to play with. She calls it the kitty corner. My sleeping arrangements have been moved into the bedroom, I eat on the floor of the kitchen and use my box in the bathroom. I just can't go in the pantry, bedroom closet or on the counters.


Cya later

I'll still be around but mom is going to be busy with important business things for a little while since her energy is coming back with the days starting to get longer so she can start making web sites and other creative design project stuff soon to support her crazy music love affair.

She just made a fresh batch of all chocolate frosted cupcakes (don't worry, she's not letting me near them) for her grandparents' 64th anniversary tomorrow. She had a lot of dishes to wash so decided she is treating herself to the pizza buffet tonight.

She's still doing great but has been staying home a lot to avoid catching those nasty bugs that seem to be making everyone else sick. She got the flu shot last fall but is still washing her hands or sanitizing them as often as possible.
