Mom! Wake Up!!

August 2nd 2007 9:25 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Well, I didn't really need to tell her that because when she stepped into the kitchen this morning before being able to make her much-needed (sometimes save-her-from-the-world-even) coffee, she noticed about eight wasps buzzing around. Yikes! Afraid they might sting me, she knew she had to act quickly. Luckily they were about as sluggish as she still was so the match was pretty even, LOL. Mom nimbly [okay, clumsily] shooed them all out the window.

Then, when she finally turned the computer on (it'd be really nice if humans were as psychic as most kitties are), she was astonished to see all these Rosette notifications. She even wondered if kitties knew something we didn't, and they did! COTD!! Oh my goodness. I'd like to thank Catster for this wonderful honour, and all you generous kitties for your lovely Rosettes and treats.

And mom? Perhaps this is an overdue lesson for you? You're not the only (or even best for that matter) writer in the family, so maybe you can take more time out from blogging and Flickr-ing to help me type up MY share of tales? Hmmm? And you can start right now by taking dictation for thank-you notes. Snort.

What a nice surprise. Thank you everyone!


Mom's Latest Addiction

As if she doesn't have enough of them! Snort. Definitely an addictive personality type if you ask me. After all, shouldn't a lovely cat like myself be enough to fill her whole world? Or at least all of her Flickr pages? Apparently not. Anyway, if you want to see one of the things occupying her attention right now other than yours truly, just click on the Flickr link, or badge (when it's working) on the right-hand side up above.

But mom? Don't forget to feed me! ;)


Wow—What An Exciting Week!

Meme madness (who could have predicted that a little meme would spread like wildfire all over Catsterland?), a shiny new Star (thanks Milagrito!), and my 2nd Catster anniversary; it's enough to make a kitty dizzy. Snort.

Mom: while the Kazoomster is getting herself undizzy, I just want to quickly comment on random fact #7 from her meme. It's true that KJ has only slept on my chest once, but it's a memory I'll treasure always. It happened after Kitty Kazoo returned from getting spayed (it was her first time away from home—a vet had come to the house before that for other procedures), and not surprisingly she'd been scared the whole time. I like to think that on her first night home she realized that she was not going to get abandoned ever again, and that she had a mom for life. So instead of sleeping at the foot of my bed like she had done each night before, KJ climbed onto my chest and for one night made both of us purr.

Thank you, Kitty Kazoo, for picking me to become your mom. It's been a privilege.

KJ: And a great big THANK YOU to my Catster friends for making the last two years so much fun!


An All About Me Meme

My friend, the intrepid reporter Mr. Bogdan, tagged me for a meme over a week ago, and here it finally is.

The rules: Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1) I'm easily distracted. Proof? I didn't get around to doing this meme right away.
2) I used to hop like a bunny rabbit, but backwards, whenever I got really startled. Am happy to report that I haven't been startled for a long time.
3) I get fed dry food for breakfast and wet for dinner—never the other way around. No matter how much I try to convince mom that breaking out of a routine is a good thing.
4) Whenever I play "Birdie Hiding Beneath the Carpet" with mom I pretend the feathers she's waving are a real bird, because a) she likes that, and b) being human she's totally gullible and actually believes I think it IS a real bird.
5) The base of my tail quivers like crazy whenever I get very excited. When does mom get to see this momentous event? Only when I'm positively sure I'm getting breakfast.
6) I sleep on mom's bed every night. No other spot, no other person. I'm exclusive that way. ;)
7) I slept on my mom's chest once. But only once. That was after my stay at the you-know-where to get you-know-what. I purred as loud as I could and snuggled right by her heart to show her I knew now that she was my forever mom and that we'd be together for life. She understood right away so I didn't have to demonstrate the message again. Much to her dismay.

Okay, I tag the following kitties on Catster:

1. Scootie
2. Milagrito
3. Luke
4. Paula
5. Toffy
6. Louis
7. Gussy

Lousy Weather Over At Last

Have been meaning to write, but now that spring has finally arrived properly, mom just seems to want to go outside! At least she removed the weather stripping from the windows today, opened them up, and whoosh—let all the fresh air in. Apparently my sniffing apparatus started working overtime immediately, but who can blame me? :)

Hope everyone enjoyed Earth Day today!


It's Easter!

And because I don't have anything prepared, I'm going to blatantly abuse my position of power as mom's absolute favourite kitty in the whole wide world, snort, and simply link to her blog. There you can see chickies, bunnies, and, um, some not so Easter-like weather. Have a good one everyone!!


Spring Has Sprung!

It was raining cats and dogs this morning (who came up with that silly expression anyway?), so mom made some chicken noodle soup to help combat the rainy day blues. I WAS going to write about that awful food recall incident today, but mom said the weather was depressing enough so asked me to write about the pretty flowers instead. (I'll write about the food recall some other time.) Look! Look at the pretty flower Rosettes Catster provided for us! Thank you to every kitty who left one on my page, and now I'm going to hand out a few of my own. Woo-heeeeee!

"Beware of people who dislike cats." —IRISH PROVERB

Ain't that the truth! Mom says she would never befriend anyone who didn't like cats, and would probably never begin a relationship with someone who didn't absolutely adore them! Sounds like a good approach if you ask me.

Okay, one more:

"It is not a fish until it is on the bank." —IRISH PROVERB

Hmmm, what's this about fish? :)


Welcome Home Paula!

As your sister Basil will confirm, you're in excellent hands now, and will be taken care of by the sweetest Mama and Papa EVER. Am looking forward to hearing more about you.

love and purrs,
Kitty Kazoo
