Wow- I can’t believe it. I am a finalist in the Coolest Cat contest in the Captivated Cat category. There were so many entries, so many wonderful pictures- its just amazing to me, simple little Abby, to be a finalist!!! I feel honored!!
I still recall the day Mama took the picture. She was actually taking some pictures of my brofur Loki. He just loves to have his picture taken- a real camera hog. Anyway I was playing near the armoire and I saw myself in it. At first I didn’t recognize myself as I have become a big girl. So I reached up to see who it was, and Mama, camera in hand caught me staring at myself! I don’t normally stare at myself of course. Anyway, Mama seemed very pleased to have caught me looking at myself. I like to please Mama so that was good.
On another note, I received a giant handmade catnip mouse this week from a lady Daddy works with. It’s huge and smells so good!!!!!!! I adore it. I had to slap Loki on the head to keep it from him. Mama and Daddy say there is something very funny about he slapping Loki, because he’s so much bigger than me. Not just heavier, but much, much longer and taller. SHHH- don’t tell but he knows that we girl cats are in charge. We boss him around, he’s a real big pushover. Literally!
The leaves are mostly gone from the trees here in Maine now, and its getting colder. But no snow here yet. There are many tiny birds in the trees though. All of us kitties love to watch them, ‘specially the chickadees. The Blue Jays and Cardinals are still here too. It would be fun to chase them, but you know- I am very happy to be indoor kitty. Racing from window to window to watch the birds is fine with me.
Oh and I almost forgot! When I went to the vet a couple of weeks ago I was able to open my carrier while on the way back home!! I am pretty smart – huh? Our carriers are soft and they have zippers. I was able to unzip it with my pointy claw fingers and crawled out and walked about in the back seat! Maggie, Kiwi and Loki were very jealous that I did that. I was literally walking on top of them . MOL! I got to look out of the window and everything – way cool! And I was a good girl and went back into the carrier when we got home so I could go back into the house . It was a fun way to end a vet visit outing.
Less than 2 weeks to Thanksgiving!
