I've been tagged by Felix to play a new game of tag! I'm supposed to list in my diary the five most annoying things my humans do, and then tag five friends to do the same in their diaries for their humans.

Here's my list:

1. Pick me up when I'm busy! How would they like being interrupted this way?

2. Not let me go into the basement storage room. I'm tired of hearing that I might get my fur dirty or get hurt in there! I want to see the furnace and the big oil tank!

3. Ask me to try new foods from time to time. I would hope that by now I've made my preferences perfectly clear! I don't want any change at all. I don't care what the vet said about my being two pounds overweight. It's nonsense--I'm all muscle!

4. Forget to bring my catnip mousies back to the big loft room in the morning after I've spent the night bringing them into the bedroom one by one, accompanying each with a song. Surely they don't expect me to do this myself? Where's the high standard of service that I naturally expect?

5. Be late with my morning brunch treat! Again, this is a matter of service. I expect the best.

Now, I'm tagging:

Mr. Sam 448437
Autumn Amelia 920640
Skippy 999263

What an awful day! They tricked me!

There I was, peacefully enjoying my midday snooze, when suddenly dad grabbed me and picked me up. Behind him came mom, with that me@%*@ow! me@%*@ow! carrier, which she had sneaked out of the closet, and dad stuffed me in! Then they took me OUT OF MY PALACE and into the car, and I was off to the vet, where I was handled all over by strange-smelling humans and given some kind of stupid shot. I don't care about that--it was just an insignificant pinprick--but what a nerve the male human had, saying I should lose two pounds! TWO POUNDS! What an idea! He should feel blessed to live in a world that has two extra pounds of my excellence in it, if indeed those two pounds are extra, which I highly doubt. I AM PURRFECT, just the way I am!

I certainly let mom and dad know my opinion of all this, I can tell you. I meowed as loudly as possible ALL THE WAY TO THE VET, and even ALL THE WAY BACK. Mom said, "But you're on your way home now, and will be there in ten minutes--why complain?"

"That's not good enough!" I yowled. "You should never have taken me out in the first place!"

Meow! Meow! Meow! *flips tail angrily*

Meow, in honor of Asian lunar new year, which is tomorrow, mom, dad, and I have all taken North Korean nicknames. Since there are exactly three of us, it works out perfectly. One of us is the Great Leader, one of us is the Dear Leader, and one of us is the Young Leader. Can you guess which one is me? *giggles*

And BTW, dad says that even though in China it's going to be the year of the rabbit, in Vietnam, where he comes from, it will be the year of the cat! (Of course every year should be the year of the cat!)

Meow, this is the fifth anniversary of the death of my brofur Apollo. I never knew him, since he died before I came to live at the Cat Mahal, but I know he was a very good kitty and my humans loved him very much and still miss him. He was only seven years old when he died of lymphoma despite receiving the best possible treatment and chemotherapy. So young! *flips tail sadly* I will have to be extra nice to my humans today. . . .

What a happy kitty I am!
I love to lie on my back and roll from side to side.
I love to get belly rubs and chest rubs.
I love to get neck scratches.
I love to play with my toys, especially my catnip mousies, bizzy balls, and catnip banana.
I love to rub my mom's legs and sniff my dad's hair.
I love to patrol my palace.
I love to watch birdies through the window.
I love to take naps, the more the better.
I love to get treats.
I love to have the humans watch me while I eat.
Purrrrr. . . .purrrrrrr. . . . . .purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. . . . .

The humans never let me go into the storage room that's next to my basement playroom. They say it isn't safe for me because the furnace and oil tank are there, and also a lot of tools and junk. I did manage to sneak in once, and frankly, I didn't see anything that looked particularly dangerous, but that's what they say.

Well, if it isn't safe for me, how can it be safe for clumsy mom? I wouldn't trip over the furnace, but I bet she might!

This evening I was peacefully napping on the second floor when suddenly I heard the storage room door open and close. I immediately ran down to investigate and could hear mom moving around on the other side.

Meow! I called. Meow! Meow! You come out of there! Meow!

But no matter how many times I called, she wouldn't come out--she said she was looking for a brass screw, or something. Of all the nerve! I can't spend even one minute in that room, but she was there for almost half an hour, with me meowing my head off while she paid no attention at all!

Finally she did come out, and she even thanked me for worrying about her, but it just doesn't seem fair. . . .

Meow! I don't know why dad is outside on our driveway, making a lot of noise shoveling snow and scaring the birdies away from my bird feeder. He ought to stay inside with me! I don't need him to clear the driveway! I need him to come in and scratch my head! *flips tail with annoyance*

Meow, I'm so excited to be a DDP today! Thank you, Catster! And thanks to Hazel Lucy; Buddie and Gunnarr T and their furmilies; Riley and Skippy; Pigeon; Kerstin K; Chai Latte; Ishtar; Dusty the Puppycat; Twinkle; Mr. Sam; Squirrel; Opie; Felix; Jason Hopper; Vanessa, and Coopurr for their greetings and gifts!

*lies on back and rolls happily from side to side*

Mom--where are my extra treats? You'd better start getting them out now. Is there any salmon left? *giggles*

I love the sound of mom's voice. When I hear her talking--especially if she's speaking at length--I run to wherever she is so I can hear her better. (As a result, I am always present for phone calls!) Even if I am in the basement and she is on the second floor, I dash up and am with her in a second. And mom loves the sound of my voice, too. She is always attentive to my nightly concerts, even when they wake her up. And during the day, she always responds to my meow!

I was very busy this morning helping mom organize her sock drawer. So many socks! I wonder why she needs so many. And of course they ran out all over the floor when she took out the drawer and accidentally tipped it, and I had to bat a lot of them into submission so they would stay quiet and wait for her to come and pick them up. While the drawer was out of the dresser I took advantage of the opportunity to check out the space underneath it (it's a bottom drawer) and warn mom that there was some dust down there that she really needs to remove. Mom and dad are really not the neatest housekeepers. They need all my help! "A kitty's work is never done"--it was an exhausting morning, and I think I'm going to need a longer than usual midday nap.
