Lord of the Manor

My "sometimes" slogan is Lord of the Manor, and we had someone point out to us just how true that is!

We moved into this house over two years ago and still have not painted a lot of the downstairs and our windows still have no coverings. Mommy has several friends who are designers/decorators, and one of them came over today to help choose colors and tell Mommy how to make the house look prettier. I guess girls care a lot about that stuff.

The first thing Mommy's friend said was..."Just how many cat beds do your cats need?" Mommy looked around the house sheepishly at the cat condo, three beds, overflowing basket of cat toys and litterbox in the dining room. Mommy said she never really thought about how much cat stuff we have. We just need it!

I mean, a guy needs to have choices when it comes to nap time. Mommy's friend also recommended a new couch and living room chairs. Do you know how long those will last with my claws around? And no, I won't use a scratching post or anything else meant for scratching. No, only the couch will do.

We heard over and over about how Mommy's friend has never seen a house with so much emphasis on cats. Good thing Mommy did not tell her about our basement!

 

I think we got more cats somehow

I think we got more cats somehow. They are in the basement. I sit on the rug by the back door, waiting to pounce! Mommy laughs and says she knows a certain orange kitty that might give me my comeupance. What does that mean? Is that one of those new words that Calvin started using or something?

Last night I ate my half of the can of Fancy Feast and then helped myself to Kiki's half like I always do. Then I hurled the whole can up on the floor next to Kiki's dish. Nice! No problem...I decided to just go sit by the cat food cabinet and tell Mommy I needed a refill. She said no way! Why? My tummy was still so hungry!

Finally after some time passed, I got a refill of food and kept it down. Kiki was not happy that I ate her food and then threw up next to her dish. Poor Kiki! I wonder when her comeupance will be here.

 

New toy for me!

Today Mommy came home from the pet store with a brand new toy...for me!!! She moved one of my old toys to the basement for some reason and replaced it with this cool new one.

It's a Mouse Robot. The mouse spins around in a round tube, and it moves all by itself! Then I leap on it and paw it and try to hug it. I love my new toy.

 

Sad

I am sad because my Grandma Mimi called from Florida to tell Mommy and Daddy that our cousin, a little doggie named Stella who belonged to Daddy's sister, died last night. Stella was in her family for many years and was quite old. Still, she and her family were very devoted to each other, and this is heartbreak. We feel so sad because we know how Auntie Shelly and her husband and little boy must feel now, and that one of the worst feelings in the whole world.

At least Catsy will be there to greet Stella and make sure they get matching wings!

 

I'm so cute!

Mommy says I am so cute! Why? Because I am!

I always want to cuddle with her (and/or Daddy) on the couch.

When I want my Fancy Feast, I go over to the cabinet where I know it lives. Then I open the cabinet door with my big giant paw. My extra toes make me super agile!

Usually I just open the door and meow or stare intently at the Feast hoping someone will notice just how cute and hungry I am. But last night, I climbed right into the cabinet (on the second shelf) and parked myself right next to the Feast! Mommy saw me lying next to the Feast and she said, "Oh, Mouse! You are so cute!" Did it work? What do you think? ;-)

 

Dancing with the Staff News!

Mommy read on the company calendar that "Dancing with the Staff" classes start October 20. But no one has explained yet what this is! Is it just a class, or a competition? As long as it's not a serious competition, I think my mommy should do it. Also, there better not be any television cameras!

Mommy met a nice lady at work that she has been going to the employee gym with. She is also married with two cats and no human children, and relatively new at work like Mommy. She actually is a fitness trainer somewhere else, working full time, getting her Master's degree and going to the gym with Mommy! Yeah, she's crazy. Mommy likes having someone to work out with who is so much more advanced because it forces her to try harder.

Speaking of Mommy, I have been working overtime in my job as "healer of broken hearts". My Mommy's heart is still aching for Catsy, and I help her by plopping on her lap and purring and kneading her. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Besides, it's getting colder, and we both need to stay warm! I sure am a nice guy.

 

My new territory

Yesterday Daddy kept asking:

Do you want to take a nap now?

I said "YES!"

Do you want me to fix you something to eat?

I said "YES!"

Do you want to watch something other than football?

I said "YES!"

Do you want to put your head on my lap?

I said "YES! YES! YES!"

Then Kiki pointed out to me rather rudely that he was talking to Mommy and not me...so I could stop answering. Kiki said Catsy had to leave for Heaven, and that is why Mommy's face was all wet and Daddy was being so nice to her. (He is almost always that nice though!)

I followed Mommy into Catsy's room while she sorted the laundry, and she did not stop me like she always does. It must be true that Catsy does not live here anymore.

Well, I shrugged...I might as well eat her food. What???? It was going to go to waste??? Geeesh. You're right, though. I took only a bite and then I decided to leave quietly and join the rest of the family in their observance of the loss of this cat I could not stand. Family obligations, you know.

But don't you worry. I know Kiki has her eye on Catsy's room. I already chased her out of there once. After I have allowed enough time to go by to be polite, I am going to claim that room as mine!

 

Dancing with the staff!!!

My favorite show is Dancing With the Stars, which starts its new season again next week!

Well, imagine how excited I was when Mommy came home and told me that she got an email where she works announcing an upcoming event called Dancing With the Staff!!!

There were no details provided yet, but the email said they will have choreographers and everything! Imagine my very own Mommy dancing on Dancing With the Staff???

Mommy has two left feet and might not get very far though! At lunch today she met another lady who is interested in doing it, but she TEACHES salsa! If that is the competition, I think my Mommy will be OWWWT!

 

The cat doctor says...

That my test results from yesterday are in.

My urine tested positive for early renal disease (again), so I have to take another pill every day in case it's caused by an inflamation from an infection.

My thyroid numbers are STILL too high...time to up the meds again.

My heart murmur is the same...grade 3.

I lost another pound in spite of eating very well.

I don't know why I am not getting better. I am a good boy and take my pills every night for Daddy. Mommy and Daddy take great care of me and fuss over me constantly, and I am still having all these purrrr-roblems.

 

Dancing with the Stars!

Last night, Mommy pulled out a new jigsaw puzzle of Dancing With the Stars! She spread out all the edge pieces on the coffee table while Daddy and I napped on the couch.

When she had all the pieces out, I decided I wanted to help. The puzzle looked like fun, and I am a big fan of DWTS, although I am very disappointed in the newest cast choices!

Anymeow, I did a big jump from the sofa right on to the table. I wanted to show Mommy which pieces I thought went where, so I made a big pile of pieces with my hands and pushed them all over the table to see where they might go. I used my tail to toss all the pieces I did not need out of my way. Whenever Mommy tried to move any pieces, I swatted her hand and try to steal her pieces!

Needless to say, Daddy thought this was the funniest and cutest thing ever. Mommy finally gave up on the puzzle and put the pieces back in the box except for the ones I was on top of. I guess some people just don't have the patience for puzzles. Sigh.

I am going to the cat doctor tomorrow. I saw Mommy rinsing out the carrier to make sure it was clean. She probably washed it last time I used it because I usually leave a urine sample in the carrier for the doctor, but she cleaned it out again just to be sure. Wish me luck!
