What a nice afternoon I've had, sitting with mom and dad while they pet me and tell me over and over that I'm their sweet little princess! Of course I'm a little princess. Sweet, I don't know. . . . Catnip mousie doesn't think so. *giggles* Meow, well, mom and dad think so, and that's what counts!

Meow--dad vacuumed up one of my catnip mousies!

I think it was the dark blue one. He didn't see it because the carpet is dark green, and, let's face it, humans simply don't see as well as we do. What an awful sound the mousie made going into Mr. Vacuum! If you think Mr. Vacuum is noisy most of the time, you would have been amazed at how much louder he can get. I thought maybe my mousie would give Mr. Vacuum indigestion so he couldn't work any more, but no such luck. Dad just stopped him for a minute so he could run into the next room and apologize to me (you really don't think I'd be staying in the same room with Mr. Vacuum, do you?), and then he went right back to Mr. Vacuum again. Oh, well, I have dozens of mousies, so I guess I can't get too upset. Still, I wish dad would be more careful!

Today, dad let me help him with one of his art projects!

For his sculpture class, he's making some kind of low relief plaque, and he has to hold the raised pieces in place with little squares of mat board glued together. He didn't let me help with the gluing (he says rubber cement isn't good for kitties--I wonder why?), but after he cut out all the little squares, he let me test them by batting them around on the table with my paw to make sure they were sturdy enough for use. He said I did a really good job!

Meow! Meow! Meow! Mom, you come inside this minute--you've been sitting outside long enough! Don't you know it's dangerous to be outside? It's chilly, too, and I know you got your clothes wet while you were watering the garden. Do you want to get sick, like Skippy was? Come inside! Meow!

(When will these humans ever learn? It's safe here inside the Cat Mahal--I wish they wouldn't go out!)

I must be in a really, really good mood today! When I was sitting in my office [the green cotton velvet chair in the living room], I actually let mom pick me up and hold me for a long, long time--about 15 minutes! I purred very loudly.

Usually I only let her pick me up and hold me for two minutes! *giggles* After all, I'm a busy cat, with a heavy schedule of naps!

Meow, I'm so excited to have my diary be a Daily Diary Pick today! Thanks to Catster and to all the kitties who sent me greetings and gifts. I appreciate them all! Catster is really my favorite place to be, right after my palace, the Cat Mahal. I love coming here!

Mom always laughs at me because I don't like to go to the vet. But she doesn't like to go to the human vet either! She had to go for a checkup today and I'm sure that if she had a tail it would have been flipping back and forth, just like mine. MOL!

I guess humans don't like to be poked and prodded any more than we do.

I was just watching a TV show about human origins with my mom and dad. I thought it would be interesting to know something about where they came from. But now I'm puzzled--the narrator said that the reason humans don't have fur all over their bodies, the way we do, is to facilitate cooling--it's an adaptation enabling them to do long-distance running in the hot climate they originated in, and so to be successful hunters. But--my mom and dad don't do any long-distance running. In fact, my mom is noticeably slow--if I start climbing the stairs when she is three steps from the top, I still get there first! So why doesn't she grow fur? *flips tail in confusion*

My mom isn't a very capable human--she needs a lot of supervision because she's very clumsy, always tripping over things or dropping them. And I am very happy to provide supervision--when she goes upstairs, I go upstairs; when she goes downstairs, I go downstairs. And she is absolutely not allowed to be in my basement playroom for more than five minutes unless I am there too! I have to watch her every move. I never know when she's going to spill something, or let something fall, or end up on the floor herself. When something like this happens, I show my displeasure by thumping my tail (or running away, if a really loud noise is involved!). But she never learns. I wonder if there's a set of exercises I could do to teach her to be more graceful? Clearly, watching me is just not enough.

I don't really understand why, but the sound of mom's voice has always atracted me. The first time I heard it, in the shelter, even before I saw her, I started meowing--I knew, somehow, that she was the right human for me to adopt. (And when she and dad heard me meowing, they came to me right away--and of course my great charm and beauty sealed the deal! *giggles*)

The print on the newspaper is a bit difficult for dad to read because he's so nearsighted, so sometimes mom helps him out by reading articles aloud to him after they eat breakfast. Whenever she does, I immediately jump on the table and run to give her some head butts. (Yes, I know I'm not supposed to jump on the table like that, but who cares?) Her voice is just like her violin playing, which I am also attracted to, even though it's not very good--I just can't keep away!
