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.

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!

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.

I must say I really have my dad well trained now! Last night, before going to bed, he came into the computer room to turn off the light. I was napping on a chair, but as soon as I saw him I decided that I wanted some attention. So I jumped up and raced across the room to my petting station, the old wicker loveseat! He saw me and immediately sat down to pet me for a while instead of leaving and going to sleep himself. Of course, he didn't want to disappoint his special princess! That's what I call excellent service--good boy, dad!

It's getting cold outside around my palace! Summer is over, I guess, and autumn is really here. Mom and dad took out the heavy quilt to put on their bed, and I gave it a thorough inspection to make sure it was ready for use. I also took care to give it a preliminary coating of cat hair to make it warmer. When I come in early to get my Morning Attention, I don't want them to pet me with cold hands! *giggles*

Meow, I'm so excited! Dad just phoned mom and me from his art class. He finished his work early and had lots of extra time, so he used it to make me a cardboard scratching post of my own! He says it has lots of interesting protuberances, just like the one he wouldn't let me use, and he glued them firmly in place so I wouldn't just break them when I flopped down on them (I'm kind of plump *giggles*). I can't wait to see it! And smell it! And jump on it! And scratch it! *flips tail happily*

I really don't like it if my humans spend too much time sitting out on the deck instead of staying inside the house with me. Don't they know it's dangerous out there?! They don't always listen, but I keep telling them.

Today, while they were outside sitting under the umbrella, I came to the door and meowed at them severely, over and over. After a couple of minutes they paid attention and got up to come inside. (As Dad said, "There's the Muslim call to prayer, and then there's Athena's call to come in!" *giggles*) And right after they came in it started to rain--so, you see, it's a good thing they listened to me!

Dad was down in my basement playroom all afternoon doing something with cardboard cartons while I was upstairs napping. I could hear him, but I was too sleepy to investigate. Finally he came upstairs, and I decided to go down and look--and what did I find on the table? A beautiful, fancy new cardboard scratching post, with lots of cute protuberances on it to make it more interesting! Of course, I thought, a present for me--after all, the humans don't use scratching posts!I sniffed it all over, and was just about to begin using it when Dad came running downstairs.

*flips tail sulkily*

Turns out it wasn't a scratching post for me. It was a project for his sculpture class. Now it's put away in the closet where I can't reach it.

Meow, what a disappointment!
