Where Are My Manners?

Mom says I’m just not as polite as I used to be, but that she welcomes the change. The most noticeable difference apparently is that while I used to be as quiet as a mouse until mom got up in the morning, I now loudly proclaim my displeasure and disgust if mom isn’t up by six. But she says that must mean I feel comfortable enough to be myself and not fear repercussions like those that I probably did before I was rescued. Although why not anyone would have thought I was the most well behaved cat is beyond us. Mom says it’s not even natural for cats to be as obedient as humans would like them to be.

But what I really meant to post about is to apologize for not posting in a while, and to say that I probably won’t be any time soon either as mom and I are moving in the next couple of weeks. My mom’s parents are getting old (93 and 82) and are in need of more help in order to stay relatively independent. Thus, we’re moving back to mom’s old hometown and have rented an apartment right across from the old folks, so that mom can hop over anytime she likes. The apartment is on the second floor of a big house, has five windows, and plenty of sun puddles for me to lie in. The main thing though is that mom and I are together. Wish us luck, and we hope to be back real soon! :)

Haha! I'm not as polite as when I first came to live in my new home, either! I figured out that this is MY family now and I know they're keeping me no matter what. Besides, I know they think I'm way too cute and sweet to send back, even if I have a few less-than-purrfect traits -- which I'm not saying I do! ;)

Good luck to you and your mom on the move. I hope you don't get too scared in the vehicle, Kazumi Joy.

Scootie sends love!

We can leave comments now? How cool is that!

Thank you so much Hazel Lucy. Appreciate it!

And thank you Lola. You're so right about being too cute and sweet to send back. My mom thinks you're just adorable by the way. You're also right about the car ride. It's the worst part of the move and neither my mom nor I are looking forward to it!
