Well my mum is a night owl, and being such she decided to start working nights again. I was sleeping on my favourite perch today when I heard the gate open I rushed to the front door and mew'd mew'd till mum FINALLY got inside.
It had been raining for two days, thunder lightning .. yucky. So mum was SOAKING wet, and dripping all over MY floor!
But WHATS THIS ? Mum had two huge bags of stuff.
She set them down to pick me up and give me snugs as she usually does when she first gets home, but I squirmed away to investigate.
I dive into the first bag and WOW she had a bag full of FUN STUFF, normally its just cat food and litter and boring stuff. so she shooed me away and started taking out all my new toys!
First there was this cool contraption that had this ball inside, but it was STUCK inside. No matter how much I batted at it and pawed it, it stayed in the circle.
Secondly, there was a second one of those things but it had a stick with feathers coming out the top ... OOooOOoo feathers!
Third came ... oooo OOOOOoo *squeek* *pounce* I barely let mum get it out of the package ANOTHER CAT DANCER! OooOOooo PPPUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
And this one .. she stuck RIGHT on the wall. Ooooo I was sooooo excited.
Next out came what seemed like HUNDREDS of small balls and mice and oooo I thought I was in heaven! Nubby balls, squishy balls, SPARKLIN balls and crinkly balls, and bouncing balls, and mice, furry ones, and sisal ones and catnip ones. OOoooooo and whats this ... another BIG toy!
A mouse ... mum took it out of the package and I mew'd at it and OH MY GOODNESS it started to spaz out. I think I almost had a heart attack, but only for a second, then I POUNCED on it and away it went again! I think mum called it a cypurr mouse ?
Then mum went to the other bag and pulled out THREE .. wow THREE new litter boxes, what the heck is going on ? ooooo wait she then pulled out 4 new dishes too ... hmmmmmm ...
And a bag of FOOD .. but not MY kind of food .. or my sisters. Hmmm it was a yellow bag. I sniffed at it a bit and then realised mum was in the BEDROOM. UHOH I had lost my snug spot to Bast!
Bast NEVER used to snug with mum, but lately she has been stealing my snug spot, and she is playing now too. Before she used to just lay around the house and do nothing, hehehe well until I'd pounce on her then she would chase me all around the house. Hey I just wanted to make sure she didn't get fat! HONEST!
I walked into the Human Society, not really wanting to take home a cat, but just to look. Until I saw you.
You, your mum and two brothers were in a cage in the very back of the room, I walked through almost missing you. I stopped when I heard the most plaintive MEW. I was looking over your papers to find out about you and I gasped, you had the same birthday as me! I immediately got an adoption agent and filled out all the paperwork and took you home.
You were two months old, a fluffy black kitten. How could I know you would grow to be one of the most cherished beings in my life.
You comforted me when things got almost too rough for me to bear. You keep me smiling every day when you greet me at the front door, rear up and mew and mew until I drop whatever is in my hands and pick you up.
You sleep with me every night. You still have the most amazing kitten smell. You play fetch with me. You come to me when I am sad and curl up in my lap, your presence cheers me. You do the most CRAZY things. You pee on me in my sleep and yet I still love you.
