one of my oldest catsterland friends, athena, tagged me to play the spring tag game, so here it is:
5 things i like about spring are:
1 - the days (time with dayLIGHT) are getting longer and longer.
2 - in the mornings i get my personal birdie concerts presented.
3 - mr. and mrs. squirrel are hushing around and often come for a little visit.
4 - human is preparing my window sill garden - oh, the scents!!!
5 - shedding season! best training for lazy humans...
now, i'm supposed to tag 5 friends, in case they might want to play.
since i am not sure who'd like to play i'll let my friends know via p-mail.

i use to answer "3" when someone asks this. refers to "who am i - and how many?" but queen missy asked me to play this tag game.
and here we go.
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
to be honest i do not have a 'funny' x-mas story to tell. at my first x-mas in this house i wasn't very well adjusted to human habits but curious like a kitten should be. when i tried to sniff at a (burning) candle human gave me a long sermon about being aware of dangers.
that was not funny…
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
when i play ambush i hide under human's reading chair.
when i want to keep human busy looking for me i use to crawl into my blankets…
no idea why she always finds me…
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
i always wanted to be a happy cat with home and servant. home and servant i found :)
4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
training human intelligence by changing hobbies as often as i can.
5) What’s your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
i wouldn't call it a bad habit – but human and i definitely have different views on interior design and wearing black clothes.
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
to a place miles and ages ago from human noisemakers of all kinds. for my convenience i'd allow the person to join me.
7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
kitty junk food.
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
my personal nightmare is a singing boy cat – i wish i had a photo of the idiot who uses to disturb my sleep with his atonal arias! i'd set a reward on him. by then i keep asking human for a voodoo doll of him…
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guests....what is your dread?
none. my only duty is being me.
10) I’m not so sure if Zach and Zoe are going to have coed ships this year or not, but in any case, which ship would you want to be on: Zach’s, or Zoe’s? Gris, will also be having a small ship (more like a dingy) that our kits could be on.
which of them is the house boat? if i should only consider being on WATER it has to be comfortable and offer me sofa, beds and bookshelves (to climb on).
you – in case you haven't played yet?!

to start with the key of the story: we've got a new family member and i HATE IT.
last monday the mailman brought a box for me. a box. just for me! i could hardly wait that human finally had removed what was inside the box and for her. pah! uninteresting. so extremely uninteresting that even human only had a short look at it and then put it aside. good for me. she placed the box at a nice place with a good view and i was happy.
then wednesday came. human had a few minutes and remembered the uninteresting thing. she plugged in a few wires, put the food switch on the floor and took a deep breath. i watched her and wondered if she was about to solve the hunger problems worldwide. guys seemed she nervous! "ishtar, it's more than 25 years ago since i did this", she said and took another deep breath. then - - - she started reading. took a spool of thread. i jumped up – a toy!!! she'd play with me!!! no. spool of thread was laid back while she read again. then new grip to the spool – my ears went up. but what was that??? she put the spool on the uninteresting thing. drew the thread through numerous holes and notches and more holes.
when she was finished human sat back, looked at me with a facial expression that made me wonder why solving the world hunger was such a big affair. after all she had only put a spool on a thing and had drawn thread from it. but then it happened. She stepped on the food switch…
*WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhAAAAAAAhAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWAAAAAAA AAAAA* did the monster machine go!!! i saw the spool twirling and a sign of relief flashed over human's face. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhAAAAAAAAAAAA.
i came closer. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. spool twirled and i saw that apparently electricity was involved. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. i changed plans and approached to the socket.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. i slapped the socket. and it was silent at once. :)))) only human's laughter disturbed a little :(((((
recently in one of my favorite groups beautiful athena asked "Who is the guardian and who is guarded?" (in our homes) as week's question. without a doubt i have tried my best to expel the monster machine. but sometimes the cat in charge is helpless in her attempts to protect home when the foe is overpowering – and stands united with the biped.
