The Lord of the Manor Speaks

Life of a country gentleman/old man cat

Back in the day, I would find Mommy's constant babying of me to be embarrassing. But now I realize...I get lots of cool stuff from acting cute and needy!

Most of my time is spent asleep on the big bed or the smaller guest room bed. Lately my preference is the guest room. Everything around the house is designed for my convenience and comfort. Stairs for both beds, litterboxes everywhere, a fountain upstairs so I don't have to walk all the way down the stairs if I get thirsty, etc.

I am getting skinnier and less active, but still seem happy, alert and definitely have my appetite.

But sometimes I like to surprise my mom by showing her I am not a total invalid. The other day, she had chicken noodle soup from Panera. She ate all the stuff but left the broth. Well, that broth smelled so yummy that I climbed all the way up on the couch by myself, climbed over the arm and got on the table with the cup of broth! It was so worth it...delicious!

Mommy let me have as much as I wanted, and then she cuddled me to sleep by her side.

Today I got up for a bit and seemed to need some attention. Mommy surprised me by heating up the leftover broth and giving it to me! I did not realize she saved it for me! It was so yummy, and when my tummy was all full of soup, it was time to go back to my nap, which I did.

Every cat loves the wood stove, but they always also want to go out on the porch because it looks nice out. After they get outside on the porch, they realize that it's actually much nicer inside by the fire. Silly youngsters. There is nothing better than the warm bed and warm house and warm broth from Panera...and cuddling with Mommy.

Warm bed, warm patch of sunshine coupled with some cuddles and a special treat is the perfect combination for a great day.
