I have so many important jobs to do! I can't believe I have enough time for a 5-7 hour nap in the afternoon and a 7-9 hour sleep at night! I can't believe I even have time to eat, and play!
Lately, Mom has been busy cleaning, and I have to play detective and find out what she's doing, then I have to play inspector to make sure she's doing it right.
It's been SO cold outside, so I have to keep her warm at night, so I have to lay on her and keep her warm.
When she makes something to eat, I have to check out what it is, if it's for me, and if it's not, why not? And if it's for her, I have to try and taste test it to make sure it's safe for her, but she never lets me. Hey, I'm only trying to do my job!
When she brushes her teeth, I have to sit in the sink. Well, that's more like play than work, but still, it drives her nuts, so I have to do it.
When she makes her tea at night, and heats up water for her hot water bottle, I have to sit by the microwave to make sure the tea smells okay and make sure the water's hot enough. Well, she lets me sniff the tea, but she doesn't want me to get near the hot water.
When she makes her bed (if she makes her bed) I have to help her and jump right in the middle, and ride the duvet around while she straightens it out!
I also tell her when to go to bed. After she takes her meds, she leaves the bedroom light on, so I think she's going to bed soon, so I go in there and meow to warn her that it's about time for her to go to bed, but she doesn't listen, so I come back out in the living room, curl up in MY bed and wait...and wait....and wait. But if she didn't plan on going in there soon, why does she leave the light on and turn the one by the bed on?
Humans. I'll never understand 'em!
But my most important job (besides keeping her warm) is doorman/security guard. If anybody comes close to the door, I go right to it and wait. Most of the time nobody knocks (though sometimes I haven't heard anything, then somebody knocked!) Then I gotta check 'em out, give 'em the once over, if they don't seem to like cats, they get the stinkeye from me! Like that lady who came over. Mom didn't know her, but was expecting her, and I came right up to her to say "Hi! Welcome to our house....come on in! Would you like a Mojito?" (I got that from Jackson Galaxy, he calls that kind of cat The Mojito Cat....purrrfect for me!) But she acted funny and asked Mom if she could put me in another room cuz she was allergic to cats.
Well, I suppose she couldn't help it, but HOW RUDE!
If they smell like dogs it means they like animals, so they're cool, like Mom's friends Jen and Gary. If they bring me presents they can stay like Mom's mom. If they smell like cats, I have to check them out, see where they've been, what cats they've been around, stuff like that.
A lot of people just walk by in the hallway though. jingling their keys. I have to check that out too, because that sounds suspicious. Mom sometimes jingles her keys before she comes in. So...is someone else coming in that has keys? Usually, no. Some lady across the hall jingles her keys and then her yippy dog barks, so I have to check that out. Then if there are voices in the hall, who knows, they could be coming here, so I have to be ready, so I sit by the door and wait for a knock. If there is a knock, I lay in front of the door, and warn Mom to be careful before she opens the door
Usually she is expecting someone and she says "Mojo, MOVE!"
So I step back, before the door catches my tail or something. I do like to meet and greet, usually, and only a couple times did I sneak out. When Mom was talking to the Schwans man who brought her food (but none for me!) I ambled out into the hallway, and she nudged me back in.
But that hallway is interesting, doors closing, people talking, dogs barking. It's fun! And a doorman/security guard has to check out all points of his surroundings to make sure they're safe!
Boy, this job is tiring. But fringe benefits like good food, long naps, pets and scritches and playtime are nice!

Mom and I did a double-take when we saw something on Facebook about Catster coming back to life! And I thought only Jesus could do that!
At first, Mom thought it was some kind of sick, twisted joke, but then, she decided that it wasn't, that it's actually true! So both Mom and I are doing the Happy Cat Dance!
And believe me, that's not easy for an uncoordinated human to do!
I am so glad that I won't be losing my friends, although I did join that Here Kitty website, and we appreciate Cowboy and all he did to start that site.
But...well, there's just nothing like Catster! Even if it does change a bit, we'll all be together...hopefully for years to come....especially next year at this time when I become a Dreamboat!
After I finished my Happy Cat Dance, I sat in the corner and laughed at Mom for saving all our diaries....she even saved a diary of a cat Squeakers and Sandy knew named Rocky Ann....and her diary is longer than all ours put together!
Oh well, she has them if this ever happens again. Hopefully it won't though, we can't stand all this extreme shock, sadness, shock again, then extreme happiness!

Lately I've had a big job.
Since the weather has been soooooo cold, so they say, Mom has been home a lot, and although it's been warm in the apartment, I still have to keep her warm, right?
Well, actually, we keep each other warm.
Whenever she sits down on the couch and if she's not playing with that new Ipad thingy of hers, I come and sit next to her on my little blankie that she knitted for me. Sometimes, if she's on the laptop, I'll walk across the keyboard.
She says she doesn't like that, but I know she does!
If she lies down on the couch with the fleece blankie, then I know she's cold and she really needs me to warm her up, so I jump up on her lap and lie on her legs and sometimes we both fall asleep for a while!
Once, I even slept through my dinnertime! That's unimaginable!
At night, I wait for her to get comfy and I climb on the bed and lie on her legs so they can't move, and I lay on them almost all night!
During the day, I beg her to play with me instead of the Ipad, and at night we have a great play time.
She even started calling me Little Buddy or Lil Buddy!
Wonder if we have to get her some more human contact soon?
Wow, there's lots of white stuff on the deck, and it's falling from the sky, and I try to sometimes catch the flakes, but, I can't!
Thanks to Catster for making ME Cat of the Day! *smiles with pride* I'm really gonna miss Catster....
Uh-oh! I see some more stuff falling from the sky...gotta go and try to catch it, I think the dog across the hall is trying to catch it too!
