I sat just outside the kitchen door waiting for my evening treat. I waited and waited, sitting quietly and politely so mom would look through the doorway and see what a good girl I was--and so neat, too, with my tail wrapped carefully around me! It seemed to take a long time for her to respond. First she got the plate, and then she got the treat jar. Then she counted out ten treats, put them on the plate, and set it on the floor next to the refrigerator. I waited patiently for her to go and sit down at the table (I don't like to have anyone too close while I am concentrating on treats!). Then I stood up, trotted in, and began to eat the heavenly pieces. Seafood medley today, yum! I ate the first one, then the second, then the third, . . . .

They were gone! Where did they go? How did it happen so fast, after so much waiting? I looked all around the plate, but it was empty. I sat by the plate a few minutes to see if the treats would come back, but they didn't. :(

How is it that something like waiting always seems to take forever, while wonderful things, like treats, go by so fast? Is this what Einstein meant by relative time? I don't understand. . . .

Meow, I guess the time of year the humans call the "holiday season" has really started. When the humans went out, they left the radio on for me and I heard a commercial for the "Ove Glove"--that's the first sign! Soon commercials for "The Clapper" will follow, and then the surest sign of all--"Chia Pets"! *giggles* I wish mom would get me a chia pet for my kitty grass. That would be fun!

Mom keeps asking me if my tail is sore. She thinks it must be sore because I've been sitting at the window and flipping it madly back and forth. I've been doing this because there are so many birds outside--huge flocks of them. I want to make sure they see me so they don't even think of trying to get into my palace!

Mom says not to worry because they're just on their way south to wherever they're going to spend the winter. But I don't care to have them in my garden. Unless they're coming to be my lunch, they have no business here!

Last night my dad had a bad dream. He dreamt that some mean cat got into my palace and tried to attack me, so he had to protect me. And he did! He chased the mean cat away! Then he woke up and told me and mom about it.

I'm glad to know that dad is taking care of me even while he is asleep. Who says sleeping humans are useless?

Meow! Dad got the iron off the shelf in the closet and took it down the hallway to iron a tablecloth for mom, who doesn't know how to iron. He didn't realize that one of my favorite toys, Da Bird, was tangled up in the iron's cord. I was snoozing on the loveseat next to mom, but as soon as I heard the bell on Da Bird ringing I sprang up and went chasing down the hallway after it. It was so exciting! Dad didn't realize why I was apparently chasing him and told me I couldn't come and help him iron because it was too dangerous. But I wasn't interested in ironing--I wanted to play! Mom came to see what was going on and untangled Da Bird from the iron cord so we could have a nice game while dad was ironing. Fun!

I'm feeling really blue today! My good furriend Elmer, one of my oldest furriends on Catster, passed away (he hadn't even told anyfur he was ill!). I'm busy purring for him and his family--he was such a nice kitty! I miss him already!

And also, my boyfurriend Copy seems to have disappeared. I heard there was some trouble in his family, but I don't really know. . . . I hope they're all okay.

*flips tail sadly*

Today dad sprained his ankle (clumsy human!) and had to stay home while mom went to yoga class alone. It was good that he stayed home--I like to have an attendant around--even if he couldn't walk much and was slow at opening doors for me. But mom seemed to be away for an unusually long time and I was getting more and more anxious. Finally I couldn't stand it any longer, and began meowing loudly at dad to go and find her. Meow, meow meow! Meow, meow, meow! Meow, fool, don't you know mom isn't here? Where is she for so long? Yoga class must be over by now. Meow! Eventually I got his attention and he brought back mom--meow, well, she appeared, anyway, so my meowing must have done some good. Don't you think so?

Like most kitties, I am very regular in my habits and don't like unexpected changes to my schedule. So this evening, when mom didn't come at the usual time to sit on the wicker loveseat and play her violin for me, I was quite upset. I waited on the loveseat for a while and then I decided to lodge a formal complaint. That is, when dad came by a few minutes later, I meowed him all about it at great length.

Dad realized that I was annoyed and ran off to tell mom to stop what she was doing (putting away summer clothes--a totally unnecessary and premature activity, since I hadn't had a chance to shed any hair on them yet, something which I always like to do before human clothes are put away for the season). And she listened! She came right in and started playing for me--high notes, my favorites!

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

Today my mom had a cold and slept late. I got so tired of waiting for her to get up and give me my morning treat! Breakfast time passed, then brunch time, and then it was almost lunch time. I couldn't wait any longer, so I went upstairs and jumped up on the bed and walked around her meowing. I went up to her head, and then down to her feet, and then up to her head again. She didn't smell like there was anything much really wrong with her, so I just kept meowing insistently until she got up to get my treat. Sometimes you have to take a firm paw with humans!

My humans are well enough trained by now that I don't even have to fully meow out my orders--a brief squeaky "Ma-a-a-" will do. "Ma-a-a-"--open the basement door! "Ma-a-a"--Oh no! I can see the bottom of my food dish; fill it at once! "Ma-a-a"--come to my petting station!

I don't believe in wasting energy.
