The best time for a concert is around 2 A.M.!

The audience is assembled in one place and is ready to listen (that is, they will be, as soon as I wake them up!). I am, as usual, in excellent voice; it's a grand night for meowing, and my tail is definitely riding high. All I need to do is bring in the green catnip mousie as my prop and I'm ready to begin!

"Oh catnip mouse, the fur, the fur is flying, from chair to chair, and also on the rug. . . ."

I'm a good cat--yes I am!
I'm a good cat--yes I am!
I'm a good cat--yes I am!
I'm a good cat--yes I am!

(I only scratched the chair seat a little!)

I finally got to inspect the laundry closet!

Oh, I know where it is, and it is usually open, so I could have gotten in at any time. But I would have had to jump to the top of the washing machine. It's not that that would be too high for me--I jump to the top of the kitchen counter often (MOL--should I admit that?), and the height is the same. But the washing machine is weird--it often shakes and makes funny noises, and I never know when it will start. It would hardly be dignified for a princess to be caught jumping onto it while it was doing that! So I was a bit hesitant to just jump up.

So, I sat on the floor next to it and meowed and meowed, and got louder and louder. Finally, the penny dropped! One of the humans picked me up and put me on top of the washing machine. It was kind of disappointing--it turned out there was nothing much there--but there was a shelf above the washing machine that looked as if it might be worthwhile to investigate. (I could just see it if I stretched my neck.) Unfortunately, there was no room for me to get on it. So I tried again--meow, Meow, MEOW! The human was more attentive this time and immediately cleared a space for me and helped me up. And this was worthwhile! There were lots of soft placemats that didn't have a single bit of my hair on them. Well, I fixed that! And a nice pile of cloth napkins, too!

When I woke up, I got down without any help.

There's a new photo of me on my page!

Unfortunately, my eyes are closed, but it shows my new pink collar.

My back and sides are mostly black, but on my right side there is a white spot, sort of like a star, and you can see this in the photo, too. The humans call this my kissing spot. I call it my humans-can-be-pesty spot. I wish they would think less about kissing my star (yes, yes, I know they love me) and more about my dignity. I'm a princess, after all!

I have a new collar! It's hot pink, just like my nail caps!

I had a red collar before, and it was nice because it had a beautifully scalloped edge. But it was getting a bit shabby looking because I had cleaned it so often. So it was time for a new collar, and I wanted to go all pink this time!

So gorgeous. . . so beautiful. . . so me!

A big gray cat came up on MY DECK and stared at me through the glass door. How dare he come onto MY TERRITORY to chase MY BIRDS! I was so indignant! My tail fluffed out to three times its normal size and began thumping! I ran up to the door and started banging on it with my paws to tell him to get lost. Aside from catster friends, I don't want any visitors here at the Cat Mahal! (I do allow the humans to occasionally invite other humans, provided they behave well and show me proper deference.) He just kept sitting and staring at me and wouldn't go away until my human came and chased him away for me. There is some advantage to humans being so big!

What a distressing experience!

Humans have such strange and dangerous bathing habits. Imagine actually choosing to immerse yourself in water! When one of my humans does this, I feel it's best for me to stay close and supervise in case of any trouble. (I've trained them so carefully--I certainly wouldn't want to lose one!)

This morning I was sitting on the side of the tub observing a human while she (meowgh) immersed herself. Occasionally she moved her toes up for me to sniff, so I could see that she was still okay (or maybe she thought I would be entertained by something so silly?). Suddenly I felt something strange on my tail and turned my head to look. The tip of my tail had dropped down into the water! It felt so strange!

I didn't immediately know what to do. I felt anxious, so naturally my tail started thumping up and down--going in and out of the water! I couldn't stop it! Finally I gathered my wits together and jumped off the side of the tub. My tail was so wet! I had to run around and around the house to make it dry off.

I'll have to be more careful next time.

It's been raining a lot here. That's good, because it means one of the humans stays in and doesn't go outside to "work" in the "garden." I would definitely advise any indoor kitties like me not to encourage their humans to keep gardens. Yes, they do provide them with exercise, but on the other hand, it means they are outside instead of inside attending to our needs and (especially) wants. There's also the danger that they could get lost. If they get too far from the Home Territory, they might not know enough to find their way back. (I never worry about this when they leave by car because I know the car will bring them back.)

I always meow to my human through the screen door to make sure she comes in after she's been out there too long.

I love it when my human plays the violin! No, she doesn't play very well. I don't have to worry that she's going to go off on a tour somewhere and leave me unattended. But those high squeaky notes sound just like me!

When she starts playing, I run into the room and start purring and rolling around on the floor. I'm so happy! I hope she keeps squeaking a lot. :)

Phoebe, Lucky, and Sprinkles have all given me beautiful rosettes! They're so sweet! I'll have to give them lots of treats. I just love all my friends on Catster! This is so much fun!

Today the humans found my green sparkle ball. It was lost for a long time--it had been hiding under the loveseat in the living room. If only the lazy humans swept under the loveseat more often, they would have found it a lot sooner! I have to get them to do more sweeping in other places, too. I'm still missing the blue sparkle ball and the pink catnip mousie.
