My vacation is over... the dogs are back:( Mom left Friday after work and I had the whole house to myself and it was really nice. Kelsey came over to check on me, but that was it. No dogs chasing me around and pesting me or anything. When I heard the car yesterday, I wasn't even sure the dogs were back with mom because Echo didn't come running upstairs with her as usual. Mom came up to check on me and gave me a kiss, but no dogs. I got a little excited thinking it was going to be just me and mom again. But my little bubble was burst later that evening when mom came into the bedroom after getting a shower and Echo pounced on the bed nearly knocking me off! Yep, they were back... so much for peace and quiet. Mom apologized for bringing them back, but she said dad wanted them to come home with her because of the guys coming to do the surveying on Monday and he couldn't deal with them. HELLO DAD!!! Guess what? I don't want to deal with them either! Guess what I want doesn't count for anything now does it? At least mom was really good about making Echo stay away from me. We all hung out downstairs and watched the football game, but after the game, mom put Echo to bed then mom, Chloe and I went to bed early cause she was really tired. I didn't mind though cause I missed mom and I love curling up next to her when she sleeps and that's exactly what I did. Chloe slept on the other side of mom, but I don't mind her because she doesn't bother me much, not like that darn pup. Mom did say she wishes I didn't mind traveling cause she would like to take me with her to the cabin. Sometimes I wish I didn't mind either cause I'd like to be with mom too. Oh well, too bad cause I am the wussy pussy and I don't think that's ever gonna change.

 

NO DOGS!!!

I think I died and went to kitty heaven! Last night it was just me and mom and NO DOGS!!!!! Dad went to the mountains and he took both dogs with him. It was soooooo peaceful. I could move about the house without them pouncing on me or chasing me all over the place. I really did feel like I was in heaven:) Mom couldn't believe the difference in me either. I played with my toys, played with her, rolled around on the floor like I didn't have a care in the world. She was so happy to see me so happy:D I know it's not right to be so happy that my dogs were gone, but it is nice once in a while to be able to just relax and not worry about some dog sniffing your butt or chasing you up the steps or jumping on the bed and almost landing on top of you. I actually got to play with some of my Christmas toys. Mom laughed as I threw them in the air and batted them around. She said I could be a heck of a baseball player. When she was watching TV in bed I was playing in the hall then I brought one of my toys onto the bed for her to play with me and that made her really happy. It was really nice for mom and I to play together:) It was just REALLY nice not to have the dogs around. I know mom does her best to spread the love around and I know she loves me, it's just those dang dogs are so needy and you know us cats, we are pretty independent and don't need much. I'm just glad mom makes sure I have my time at night and that I get to curl up with her to sleep. That is what I look forward to every night and mom ALWAYS makes sure I get that no matter what! But it was really nice what we had last night. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky again and dad will take the dogs away again and mom and I can have some girl time again soon:)

 

Happy New Year

Yeah, yeah, I know I'm late, but mom's been away and really busy since she's been home. They got back on Sunday evening and boy did I miss them. I know I said I didn't want to go, but I do miss my family when they're gone. Brett and Kelsey came and checked on me. I got sick one day and Brett cleaned it up for me. He's such a good kid:) Sunday night I was so happy to sleep with mom again, but I was NOT happy that she let Echo sleep in the bedroom with us. She said Echo slept in the bedroom at the cabin and did really well so they were going to try it at home. Well, let me tell you, that didn't go so well. She kept waking mom and dad up. Mom was none to happy about it either because she had to go to work on Monday. Mom couldn't figure out why Echo was waking them so much. I know why... because she wanted on the bed to get at me. She doesn't hurt me, but she likes to play and annoy me and she knew I was on the bed and she wanted up there in the worst way. Well, needless to say, Echo is now back in her crate at night:)

Other than that, nothing exciting has been going on around here. I've been keeping mom company. Her knee is getting better, but still sore and a little swollen. She went back to work on Monday and when she got home she laid on the sofa with the ice machine. I late on top of the sofa above her and kept her company. I make sure the dogs don't bother her too much. You know how those dogs can be! It was so nice to have my mom back:) She said she really misses me when she's gone too though and she really wants to take me with her to the cabin sometime to see how I do. She said she'll wait to my next vet trip she'll talk to the vet and see what he says. Part of me would like to go and be with my family, but you know the wussy pussy part of me is like NO WAY! So I guess we'll just wait and see.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a Happy New Year and let's hope this one is better than last one!

 

Yeah... I get to stay home!

First, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Belated Christmas. Sorry I'm late, but mom had knee surgery on the 23rd and today ws the first day she was able to sit at a computer. Second, I'd like to say THANK YOU to Catster for picking me as the Diary Pick on the 24th. I'm sorry I missed it that day, but I am extremely honored that I was picked, especially since I think I lead a boring life. I'm glad that Catster feels I have enough excitement to share with everyone. And thanks to everyone for your congrats:)

So, how was everyone's Christmas? Mine was uneventful, and that's just the way I like it. Mom waited until everyone opened their gifts, including the dogs, then she brought me my gifts to my room and opened them with just me and her. She knows that's the way I like to do it. I got an entire stocking filled with all kinds of toys. They were all pink which is my favorite color:) I actually played with a couple of my toys a little. But what I loved most was the catnip that grandma got for me. Mom sprinkled some of that on my toys and on the carpet and I rolled around in it like a nut. I just LOVE catnip! Grandma knows what I like!!:D That is actually what got me all excited and made me want to play with a couple of my toys. Mom was really good about keeping Echo away from my room cause she tried to come in a couple of times, but mom wouldn't let her. Mom played with me for a little, but she couldn't play long cause her knee hurt. That was pretty much how our week has been. I'd either lay on the bed with mom or down on the sofa with mom while she'd watch TV, sleep or read with her ice machine on her knee. Poor mom, having surgery over the holiday:( But she had to do it when she could get the time off of work.

On another note, as you can see from my title of this entry, I got out of going to the mountains! Mom thought about it and she decided that I can stay home for this trip. Kelsey is going to come take care of me Thurday, Carol on Friday and Brett on Saturday. Mom comes home on Sunday so I'm covered for all the days. Boy am I glad cause I really didn't want to go. It's not that I don't want to go be with mom and dad, it's more the car ride than anything. I think MAYBE once I would get there I would like it, but it's the getting there that would stress me out too much. But now I don't have to worry about it. I get to stay home and relax in my own home:) Yeah, I'll miss my family, but they'll be back on Sunday so it's not even a week. They've been gone longer and I survived.

Well, that's been about all that's been going on with me. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Have a Happy New Year. Be safe out there!

 

Juniata trip... I don't think so!

Last night mom tried to take my picture in front of the tree with Echo and Chloe. What a joke that was. Chloe was okay, but Echo... Yeah right! She wouldn't let me alone. No matter what mom did, she just wouldn't sit still for 2 seconds and not bother me so mom could take the picture. Finally, mom gave up and let me go because she said the picture wouldn't turn out anyway cause I looked miserable, which I was by the way. If the pup would have left me alone, I would have been fine cause I would have snooped around the presents, but nope, Echo had to bother me the entire time. Puppies!

Later in the evening, I was sitting on the sofa with mom and dad and they were talking about going to the cabin over New Year's and they are talking about taking me with them. I DON'T THINK SO! You know me, I like my little home here and anywhere outside of it I just freak out! Mom said she thinks I would like going someplace different and I wouldn't have to stay in the crate either. She's just worried about the ride cause she knows I hate cars. Mom said she just feels bad because they go to the cabin so much and I'm always left at home alone. Yeah, Kelsey comes and checks on me, but other than that, I'm alone. But that's okay with me, really. But mom really seems to think that I would like it. I don't know though. What do you all think about this trip to the cabin? Give me a shout out and let me know your thoughts about it.

 

The Stand Off

Last night mom was in the computer room doing some cyber shopping for Christmas and I was laying on the bed just chilling. Guess who as discovered that she can jump up on the bed? Yep, you guessed it, that darn pup Echo. So she jumps up on the bed and stands there, staring at me. She takes a couple steps toward me, trying to push me on. But I don't move. She takes a couple more steps. Now I stand up and look her straight in the eye. She takes a few more steps and drops her head, never taking her eyes off of me, like she's trying to intimidate me or something. Well, I'm here to tell you, I might have been intimidated by her in the beginning, but not anymore. This is MY bed and I am NOT giving it up to a pup so I was standing my ground! So we just stood there, standing... staring. Finally, she decided that I wasn't going to give in and she wasn't going to have any fun with me so she jumped down off the bed. VICTORY!!! Chalk one up for pussycats all across the world:D That pup will learn that standing off against this kitty is the wrong thing to do and it's a game she'll never win!

 

Hi All!

I just wanted to say Hi to everyone! Not much has been going on here. The pup has been terrorizing me, but that's to be expected. Mom has been really good in making her keep her distance. The three of us can actually lay on the bed together with mom and the puppy doesn't pounce on me:) I've been maintaining my weight, so that is making mom happy, although she still thinks I'm too thin. She still monitors my pee and poop like a mad person... for real! I cuddle with mom every night when she goes to bed. I wait for her to get in her sleeping position, then I get in mine, curled up right against her side and I purr both of us to sleep. She tells me that she just can't fall asleep that easlily if I'm on there. My family is going to the mountains this weekend so I guess she won't be sleeping to well and neither will I. I'm always a bit nervous when my family is gone. Yes, they always have someone checking on me and it's only like a day that I don't see them, but still, I don't like being alone, even if it's only for a day. Mom said she'd take me along, but she knows that would be even worse for me and she's definitely right about that! I never like to leave the house! Oh yeah, mom said she's going to try to take a picture of me with fall type decorations for my page. Good luck with that mom! Thanks to Smudge's mom for my pawsome Thanksgiving page!!

So, as you can see, not a whole lot happening around here. Just tolerating the pup and chilling with mom. Oh yeah, mom entered a couple pictures of me in the World's Coolest Cat & Dog Show so if you don't mind, please vote for me. I doubt I'll get many votes, but mom thinks I'm cute so I guess that's all that matters:)

That darn pup!

So last night I was laying on the bed and I decided to go into my room for a bite to eat. I jumped down off the bed and BAM! That darn pup pounced right on top of me. I didn't even realize she was in the room cause mom doesn't usually let her in there (acutally, I don't know that mom knew she was in there). Well, I let that pup knew I didn't appreciate being pounced on and I gave out a hiss and I smacked her in the face with my paw. She can be glad I don't have claws or I would have done some damage that's for sure. I shocked her enough though that I was able to make my get away and I jumped back on the bed. Mom finally saw what was going on then carried me to my room and put me in so I could eat. Thank goodness! That pup better watch her step cause there's more where that came from. I might be old, but I'm still mighty:)

 

Good News!

The vet called mom last night and we got good news! He said my bloodwork was pawsome! He didn't see anything abnormal at all. Unfortunately that doesn't explain why I'm losing weight though. He told mom that sometimes older cats develope a form of lympthomia and it can't always be detected until a tumor or lump forms. He said he could do radiographs or ultrasounds, but even then, unless it's large enough he might not see it. He also said that it might just be because I'm getting older and my body is changing that I'm losing the weight. He did say he would still like a urine sample so she still thinks she's going to get that from me... MOL:D He told mom just too keep a close eye on my weight and eating habits and he'll recheck me in February when I go in for my shots. See, I tried to tell her I was okay!

So, last night I hung out on the sofa with mom, dad and the pooches. Echo was funny. She was laying on the sofa beside dad, but she was facing me. She would creep closer and closer to where I was (I was at my usual spot on the top of the sofa). Mom kept telling her "no" and she would crawl back a little. Then when she thought mom wasn't looking, she'd creep forward again. It was hilarious! I knew she wasn't going to hurt me so I wasn't freaking out. After a while she got bored cause I didn't do anything then she went off to play with Chloe. Dogs!

Mom is going to the mountains again, but she said they'll be home tomorrow. That's good cause I do miss them when they're gone. At least I do get some peace and quiet from the mutts!
