I know Lobo has been taking up a lot of Mom's time and energy and even brain power ... but this is totally unacceptable. For the FIRST TIME EVER we ran out of Fancy Feast!!! Mom went to feed me the "I'm heading off to work now, Squirrel, here is a little treat for you!" feeding. She opened the cupboard and there was NONE in there. There was plenty of dog food in there! But NO FANCY FEAST!!! Mom mumbled, "I was sure there were plenty of cans left!" Then she gave me some Temptation treats. I turned my nose up at that but did eat it when Mom wasn't looking. She has promised to make a special trip to the store for me tonight during a break from her work.
I had been jumping in the cupboard for days now and trying to tell her, "Mom we are down to 2 cans now!" "Mom, only 1 can left!" But she didn't pay attention to me. She was counting how many packs of soft dog food there were. That is how Lobo takes his pills. Hrumph. I guess if she brings some Fancy Feast home tonight that will be okay. She is on the late shift, so I have to wait until midnight.

We are still waiting for our Catster mail to work properly. We get it but cannot just click on it to respond or go to the group it is coming from, or click on the sender to pmail them.
Kitcat & I are having a nice late summer. Lobo is looking and feeling better than he has since April. Mom is working far too much. When she comes home after working her night shift and dragging her butt, Kitcat & I put on a show for her. We chase each other around the house and even over top of her and Lobo. That always makes her laugh. Well, except for when Kitcat runs over her and uses her claws for grip on Mom's lap. Anyhow, we give Mom a good laugh as she unwinds and gets ready for bed.

Do you instinctively know when your Mom or Dad are about to head off to work or on a holiday and park yourself on their stuff? Do you know what they need to leave the house and sit on it? Well, I do. Mom has to leave for work in less than half an hour. She takes a backpack with her stuff in it. (She doesn't use a purse.) So, less that an hour before her departure time, I casually wandered on over there and made myself comfy on top of it. I had to endure a few playful swats from Kitcat who was napping next to it. But I persisted and am well situated on top of Mom's pack. She is now wondering if she can leave without it or if she will have to uproot me.
Lounging on Mom's Backpack
Would you disturb such a cute and innocent little kitty?

The kitties, Kitcat & I, are taking up the best sitting spots for TV watching and she doesn't move you from the chairs. Instead, she sits in a spot that she has to crane her neck to see the TV and ends up with a sore neck. That is our Mom.

Early this morning I started running around the house like a crazy fool. I had Mom laughing out loud. Kitcat was sleeping so I was just running around all by myself.
Mom said out loud, "Well, we are either in for a storm or you have to take a poop!"
Guess what? Both things happened.

6-15 COOL CAT: You are one cool cat. Smooth with a touch of mischief. You’ve got a bit of feisty in you and a bit of lovebug.

Chasing kitty sisters, demanding your human feed you NOW, eating your mom’s favorite pair of shoes, turning on the oven with your freakishly strong teeth just because you can! The world is your playground and you’ll try anything once (or twice). If your human can handle the shenanigans of a CRAZY FEISTY kitty cat, all is good! If your human cannot handle the shenanigans, wait until she leaves for work to get crazy and then blame it on your sistercat when your human comes home! You are crazy feisty (and a whole lot of mischievous fun!)!
Any kitty that wants to play is invited! Feel free to tag friends to find out just how feisty your friends are!

When Mom was at the vet clinic with Lobo today, there was a lady with a kitty in a cardboard carrier. She opened the box and the kitty stuck her head out. They talked because Lobo didn't try and chase the kitty and the kitty wasn't worried about Lobo. The lady said she could never get her ten year old kitty to go in a normal cat carrier but she loved going in boxes. The girl kitty looked a lot like me Mom said. But she only saw her face. Mom could tell the lady was sad and found out the kitty was being helped to the bridge that day due to some incurable and progressive disease. Please say a prayer for the lady and her little kitty that looked like me. Mom remembered being in the same clinic with Peaches all those years ago for the same reason. Mom wanted to talk with the lady some more but they were both crying and then the vet came out for Lobo at that time.

I'm not the sweet little girl that everyone thinks I am. Mom had just come home from taking Lobo to the vet. I must admit that she did take the time to take me for my leash walk, but still! I wanted more attention. So, Mom sat down to read her newspaper and then she heard noises in the kitchen. She wasn't too concerned until she saw Kitcat looking that way with a big puffy tail. Kitcat ratted me out. Mom got off of her big butt and went to see what the noise was. Well, it was me taking a round out of our roll of paper towels. (Lucky taught me that trick.) She took the time to grab her camera, so, I will be starring in a video about "Good Cats Gone Bad"! I'm very proud of the wild look I have in my eyes and the damage I did to the paper towels. I am not so proud of almost ending up in our water dish. Video is downloading to Youtube as I type this, with Mom's help.
I'm a very spunky Squirrel! Not bad for 8 years old!

Mom renewed our Catster Plus membership. She was a little late because she has to do it by phone and was not having any luck reaching them due to her shifts. But we are back up to being plus members. Mom said she did it because we are so cute!!! and we all have a lot of fun playing on here.
I had my leash walk today and was scared back into the house by loud noises that the neighbours were making. But, before that happened, we saw a hummingbird looking at its reflection in our picture window! It was so cute!
Kitcat was playing in Mom's cooler, which still had a bit of water in it, and made a bit of a mess. We are all now taking a nap except for Mom. She will be taking Lobo in for his laser therapy in an hour. I think this might be one of those lazy crazy days of summer? And, it looks like, after this heat a thunderstorm will roll in. Mom hopes it is a doozy as she will be home for it so she can take pictures and keep Lobo in the house. He is very scared of thunder. Us kitties are okay with it.
