Dad finally came to pick me up after his trip to Florida. I was so happy to see him I shook my butt like a d*g. I haven't left dad's side since we got home. I am just so happy to see him again. And I know he totally missed me too. How could he not?

Time for more scratches and rubs...

 

Here We Go Again

Uh oh. Dad is packing his big bag full of clothes and stuff. That can only mean one thing: he is going away again! Which means I have to go to stay at my v*t's until he returns. Oh woe is me! :-((((((((

I mean, it's really not THAT bad. The people at the v*t take good care of me and, of course, I am extremely popular with everyone. But I miss my home and my dad and my toys. I have a very particular routine that I follow every day:
4:30 am - Wake dad and get fed
5:00 am - Lay on dad's chest and get scratched on my mane
5:15 - 7:30 am - Look out the window at cars, birds, etc...
7:30 am - Go downstairs with dad and share a treat with him
8:30 am - Greet dad as he gets out of the shower
8:45 am - Say bye to dad as he goes to work
8:45 am - 6:00 pm - Nap, play, watch the birds until dad returns
6:00 pm - Greet dad at the door and get supper
7:30 - midnight - Play/bond with dad
Midnight - 4:30 am - Sleep in dad's bed (for the most part)

I don't like falling out of this routine. Plus I miss dad when he's gone (shhh don't tell him). I do not like being separated from him. He is my best friend and I really love him. ::SIGH:: I hope he is not gone too long...

 

Ramblings...

Dad keeps talking about this "Super Bowl" thing like it's the most important event in the world. What kind of game is this that the humans play? Hmm... what can be so exciting that they throw parties and talk about it ad nauseum?

From what I can gather, it's a game where they have a giant ball of yarn and they bat it around a large field until one of the human teams gets it to the other teams house. That team arches their backs and hisses at the intruders but it is to no avail. Since they were invaded they have to give the invaders some tuna treats. Then it is their turn to bat the yarn ball... Yeah I can see where that would be a fun game. But the teams that are playing are the Bears and the Colts. What about feline names? Lions? Panthers? Jaguars? Bengals? Those are the teams that should be batting around the yarn! Then after the game they can serve the Dolphins, Seahawks and Cardinals up as treats for the players.

Today was a fun day. A flock of birds landed outside my window and I got to watch them fly around. I would like to go out and chase them but dad tells me it's dangerous outside for me because of the "cars". I think he means the big metal dogs that run around on the street and chase after each other. Yeah they are kinda scary.

You know what else was fun today? I snuck into the bathroom! I'm usually not allowed in there because I tend to knock stuff over - like dad's expensive... um what did he call it... oh yeah cologne. I'm doing him a favor because the stuff stinks! But I got in trouble for running into the bathroom and dad threw me out. I tried to sneak in again later and was caught again. I must come up with a better plan next time.

Dad went to the store and got me my favorite treats - Friskies moist chicken flavored. MMM-MMM!!! I think I'm gonna go bug dad for a few right now!!!

P.S. Note that I posted a new picture (the last one on the bottom). Actually this is the very first picture taken of me. It was before dad adopted me. I think I was about 6 weeks old. I was hatin' the lady that was holding me... I do not like to be held. I don't remember too clearly but I think I ended up biting her. MUWAHAHAHA!!!

 

Happy Birthday To ME!!!

Today is my 3rd birthday. I can't believe that I am that old already. I may be a giant as far as cats go, but I still think and act like a kitten. I like it that way! Dad was looking at my kitten pictures last night and reminiscing about how cute and little I was. I am STILL cute, dad, just not little.

Dad kept singing happy birthday to me this morning before he left for work... how embarrasing! Oh well, the old guy means well. I can't wait till he gets home tonight with my present. I love getting stuff!!!

(Yawn) - Well I'm off to nap until dad gets home. Hooray for Aedan!!!

 

Dad is Mad!

Dad got up this morning and I wanted to PLAY! So I did my usual nipping at his ankles to get him to play and it worked. We were playing for a while and then I guess I got a bit too rambunctious and bit dad. This usually isn't a biggie - I bite dad all the time and he's used to it. It's a part of the play. But this time I bit a little too hard and it hurt dad. He yelled at me and said that it was "naughty" to bite that hard. I DON'T like being yelled at (I ESPECIALLY don't like that "n" word) so I yelled back at him with my meanest fang face: "MEOWWWWRRR!!!"

Then dad yelled.

Then I yelled.

Finally dad shook his head and said, "Aedan, you're too much!" (dad thinks I have a bit of an anger management problem). He turned and walked up the stairs to his room. With his back turned I could strike him easily. I waited till he was halfway up the stairs and then came charging. With my ears pinned back and my fangs showing, I meowed, "Yell at me, will you?!" I growled like a lion as I lunged to bite his ankle. But just before I could attack, dad turned around and hissed at me. He is the bigger cat and if he hisses, I stop. I turned around and slinked away with my tail between my legs.

Now dad is in his room with the door closed so I can't get in. I know this is his way to punish me but I want to say I'm sorry. C'mon, dad open the door! We're still pals!

 

I Don't Like Halloween!!!

Noisy kids... doorbells ringing... knocking... yelling... "TRICK OR TREAT!!!"... weird music... scary costumes... dad not giving me his full attention... treats that I can't have...

This all equals a BAD NIGHT FOR AEDAN!!!

 

Not as small as I used to be...

Today I saw a spider and decided I wanted a closer look. But it was hanging up near the top of the kitchen cabinets. No problem! I used to go up there all the time when I was younger. Uh Oh - then I remembered the last time I tried. I knocked over a bottle of this stuff and it broke and made dad angry (see "In the D*ghouse" diary entry). But that is gone now... I figured no problem. I climbed on the counter then up onto the top of the fridge. Hmmm at this point I remembered why I stopped going up there - I am a LOT bigger now. But I made it this far, I wasn't backing down now!

I squeeeeeeeeezed into the space between the cabinets and the ceiling. I had to crawl to get to the spider. I reached it and batted it around a little. It wasn't too much fun though since I couldn't move much. So I ate it.

When dad got up he looked for me and called me. Hehe - I was watching him the whole time from my lofty perch. He finally did look up when he saw some of the stuff that was on the fridge knocked to the floor. "Aedan," he said, "you're too big to be up there! How are you going to get down?"

Oops, I didn't think of that! But I showed him - I cautiously moved my way down to the fridge and then hopped down to the counter. Then down to the floor. Dad had a frown on his face but I know he was impressed with my dexterity.

Eating the spider was not a good idea. I got sick a little while later. Dad knew exactly why. Spiders shouldn't look so yummy if they are going to make you sick!!!

 

Dad Calls Me "Hurricane Aedan"!

What's the big deal? I just had a really good nap and was full of energy. I was burning it off by running around haphazardly. I didn't know my own strength and yanked down the windowblinds. Boy was dad mad! He had to get out a tool kit and drill holes and all sorts of hard stuff like that. What can I destroy next?

 

In The D*ghouse

Dad was a little upset with me this morning. I woke him up at the usual 4:30 am for breakfast. He grumbled but went down the stairs. Before he turned on the kitchen light (I think before his eyes were open), he said "what the..." Then he turned on the light and saw he was standing in some funny smelling liquid.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I was playing around and jumped up on the refrigerator and knocked over this cylinder shaped thing that had been there for a while. It made a crash noise and then the liquid spilled on the floor.

Dad fell to the floor and started saying some naughty words... then he grabbed his foot and began picking pieces of green glass out of it. I guess the glass breaking is what made that crashing sound.

At that point I think dad's brain finally woke up and he immediately examined my paws to make sure I didn't step on the glass. Come on, I'm not stupid, why would I do that?! Once he saw I wasn't hurt he scolded me saying, "Aedan, that was a VERY expensive bottle of 12 year old Jameson Irish whiskey. It wasn't even opened. I was saving it for a special occasion. You need to be more careful!" Hmpf! I think HE needs to be more careful not to put breakable stuff in MY way! Anyway, if the stuff was 12 years old, I did him a favor! It was probably past the expiration date (smelled like it). Now he can go out and buy a fresh bottle.

Dad was grumbling as he pulled out the mop and this yucky stuff called "Pine Sol" and cleaned the floor. I guess it's not what he wanted to be doing at 4:45 am (oh, I made sure he fed me first). Then he had to go around the floor on his hands and knees picking up tiny pieces of glass so I wouldn't step on them and get a boo boo.

By the time dad was done he wasn't mad at me anymore. I guess he expects stuff like this from me after 2 1/2 years of living together. He said "Aedie, I'm going back to bed. If you know what's good for you, you will leave me alone until my alarm goes off."

I will give him about 15 minutes and then I will jump on his chest looking to be pet (hehe).

 

Digging in the archives...

I was perusing the internet and stumbled across my first attempt at a website. I was pretty advanced for being only 3 1/2 months old. Here is a review of toys that I did back then...

I decided to provide a valuable service for all of you who have cats. I am going to review some toys. I have done extensive research (play). I hope you find my suggestions worthwhile.

Spotty Fur Mouse
I got this toy because I hid my original toy mouse (tip to cats: hide your toys and get new ones!). This toy is great for chewing and chasing. It has a chamber for catnip which always enhances the playing experience. The mouse is small enough so that you can pick it up and carry it around. It has a leather tail which is way too small. I had my dad tie a long length of yarn on the tail which makes it a much better toy.

Black Mouse on a Retractable String
This has got to be one of the worst toys out there. It is a black fuzzy mouse that looks like a rat. The retractable string makes a scary noise and it doesn't work very well. I am frightened by this so called "toy" and will not go near it!

Rating: 0 out of 5 paws

Brown Mouse
This is my favorite mouse. It is soft and chewy. I like to grab it with my front paws and bite on it. It is also very easy to hide on my dad since it blends in with brown things. He always thinks I've lost it!

Rating: 5 out of 5 paws

Fishy Rope Chew Toy
Love it love it love it! This milk scented toy has two hard ends with a thick rope middle. The orange plastic ends are in the shape of a fish head and tail. I like to bat this around on the kitchen floor. It really zooms along! The only negative is that it is small enough to get lost underneath the refrigerator. Boy does that make my dad ticked off!

Rating 4.5 out of 5

Multicolored Plastic Monkeys

My dad calls these "Barrel full of monkeys". Whatever. These hard plastic monkeys are so much fun to bat around on the linoleum. They really whiz back and forth and they spin around too which adds to the fun. My favorite is the red monkey which, alas, has been lost for several weeks deep underneath the stove.

Rating: 3 out of 5 paws

Plastic Ball with a Bell Inside


This is a good toy for baby cats (come on... I'm 3.5 months old now!). I find it quite boring for a sophisticated older cat such as I am. It's OK to play with in a pinch or as a change of pace, but it is not my first choice.
