Wow - it's been a while since I was able to make my purrson sit down so I could dictate my diary. I mean, I TRY to go easy on her. She obviously needs to spend a certain amount of time petting us, and grooming us, and buying food for us, and getting out treats for us. Y'know, she actually needs to spend MORE time getting out treats for us. Lots more.
Well to get to the exciting part, my other purrson, the male, said a really bad word on Sunday!! I was right there. It was probably because he didn't get to see this squirrel as closely as I did, and actually I didn't get to see it as closely as I wanted to. I felt like saying a bad word too, but I was busy running out of the room.
Now that it's full spring and the bush outside the bedroom window is all leafy again the squirrels have been back on the window ledge! It's so cool, the windowsill is long enough all 5 of us can sit and watch if we're polite. I'm always polite. Honest.
Well, on Sunday the squirrel didn't just sit on the ledge, it climbed up in the bush. So I wanted to see it closer. Well, there's no bush inside, and my incredibly untrusting people keep the houseplants hanging up - something about they don't need to be chewed and no one wants to clean up regurgitated plant chewings. Whatever. So the only thing to do was try to climb the sheer curtain. Yeah, I'm not supposed to, but this was a SQUIRREL. I figured they'd forgive me just this once.
Well, I didn't get a chance to find out, cause the curtain rod is partly held up by this really wimpy hook that will hold a curtain rod, but not one with a cat attached to the curtain. So I fell, and naturally I put out my claws, and it's Not My Fault that I happened to land on my boy purrson's head. Honest. And he said a really bad word, and my girl purrson said oh dear, you're bleeding and went to help him, and no one even cared that I'd missed my chance to see the squirrel AND that falling like that was not exactly comfortable for me, either.
Well, at least the squirrel wasn't upset by it. It's been back on the ledge every day this week. Spring is great!

I'm not so happy - our lizzard died! We all loved watchign the lizzard! My purrson was very sad. She cried. She likes pretty much any animal - which is sure good for us!! They'd just gotten a new, bigger cage for it, too, but it didn't get to be put into it. I was looking foreward to that, too, cause more of us could sit and watch at once! They don't think anythign happened to it, it was just its time.
But I've been behaving myself really well!! Well, excapt the incident with the teddybear furniture - really, when people put thtings on a shelf, it's only natural that a cat will investigate!! And they got a squirt bottle!! That is TOTALLY unfair - withotu even leavign the couch or bed or wherever they can send a squirt of water at some poor kitty who's just LOOKING, well, maybe sniffing, well, okay, taking a bite out of any roses is always... ooops. Squirt bottle again. If he didn't get her flowers all the time I couldn't chew on them, you know - I'd have to use the houseplants!!
I have to finish this entry - it's lunch time for my purrson and I'm really hoping for yoghurt!! She's pretty good about givign us a taste. And I overheard them talking about they need to start giving us each a spoonful of plain yoghurt at bedtime again - it's supposed to be good for our digestion. I don't know about digestion, but it's sure GOOD!!

Aaack - I have bald spots on my head!! It is totally not my fault. Autumn, the senior female, decided she had to start this series of little squabbles to prove who ranked in what order. Well, how was I suppsoed to know it was about rank?? I thought she was playing!!
Well, they finally explained it all to me, and she's stopped doing it pretty much, so now it's MY turn - I ought to know how I rank too, right? I rank with everyone beating me up. My people are no help - they keep laughing and telling me maybe I shoudln't start when I know what happened last time. And then to add insult to injury, they put antibiotic goop on the scrapes. I didn't get HURT, those are badges of - umm - errrr - badges of i can pick a fight too even if it's a dumb idea!! Yeah - that's it!!
They also sugegsted if I wanted a new hairstyle they coudl just help out - maybe a monk's tonsure? I'm sure THEY think they're funny.
Well, life will improve soon - the hair is growign back and the holidays are coming up. On Monday there is somethign called "finals" that must be as bad as a trip to the vet from the way my purrson talks about it, but after that she says she'llbe home with me for a whle month and not go off to that school place!
Instead, she's going to sew things to I can run off with scraps and cook things so I can have treats. I already got lots of cranberry bread on Thanksgiving. I LOVE cranberry bread! She's going to make more, too. I can't wait! And the other day I got to have some of her veggie burger! That was GOOD. They said they're gonna have to limit me, though, cause as soon as I was done with as much as they'd give me I sorta went wild and tore around the room and pounced on anything that moved.
My boy purrson said "Osha, are you SURE you're a cat?" He says that a lot. If not, I look close enough, and what's wrong with veggie burgers?? They're good. Oh, and granola - I had some of that the other day too! Would you believe none of the other cats wanted any granola? How weird! All the more for me!
Osha, the well-fed
