Wow, what a day! My foster mommy took me to the pet fair again yesterday. I hate sitting in a cage all day. And on top of that she didn't even take me back home again! She said I would be going with the young boy that came to pet me and play with me. He and his father took another cat home, too, so I wouldn't be the only cat in the house. She told me to be on my best Christmas behavior and if I got along with the other cat, they would adopt us both and I'd never have to sit in a cage again. Oh, that would be sooo nice!

4-5 AM - Sitting on my foster mommy's pillow, kneading her face and purring. Got kicked out of bed three times already, but I don't care.
7 AM - More kneading and purring - mommy's hiding her face under the blankets, but I know where to find her! It's breakfast time!
7:30 AM - Got reinforcements: Binky and Mikesch are on my side. Now Binky's getting into mommy's face while Mikesch and I wrestle a bit underneath the blankets. Ooops, was that a human toe? Finally mommy's getting out of bed. Hurray!
8 AM - Yumm, breakfast. Gotta cover the leftovers though. But what to use? I guess a mix of kibble, toys and the area rug will do...
9 AM - Mommy's back in bed! Can you believe it? It must be my lucky day today. More kneading and purring!
10 AM - I guess kneading time is over for now. Watching mommy shower from the rim of the bathtub. Can we play ping-pong in the tub?
11 AM - Second breakfast! Hurray for Binky's begging skillz! Meow!
12 AM - Where is everybody? Oh well, I guess it's nap time anyway. Yawn!
4 PM - Time to stretch. Is mommy home yet? Does Mikesch want to play? Well, I guess I'll just chew a bit on my favorite cardboard box while waiting for some action.
5 PM - Zooming through the house with Mikesch - fun fun fun!
6 PM - I can has dinner now? Purrrrty please?
7 PM - Finally dinner time! Yumm! What took mommy so long?
8 PM - Oh, mommy's sitting down. Lap time! Binky's already up there, but I don't care. I'll squeeze in somehow. It's not like there wouldn't be enough space on mommy's lap for the both of us. I can always sit on top of him anyway.
9 PM - I can has Da-Bird now? Purrrrty please? Yeay!
10 PM - Social wash hour with Mikesch and Binky on mommy's bed. It's so much nicer to groom each other than doing it all alone by yourself. We're the purrty purrsome trio! Is mommy coming to bed, too?
11 PM - Joining Binky in trailing mommy while she's getting ready for bed and meowing with utmost urgency - he tells me this is how you beg for a midnight snack.
11:30 PM - Ah, mommy's in bed. Cuddle time again! To knead or not to knead, that is the question...

Hello everyone! I love you all! The humans call me Riley, and I don't mind. I love living the life of Riley! I love all the humans, too! Every time I see one, I want to get up on their arms and rub all over them and purr like crazy. They're so much fun, especially when they pet you and play with you!
Somehow I ended up where unwanted pets usually go. Nobody really understands why - me the least of all - but here I am being "up for adoption." But that's ok, I'm having lots of fun and lovely company in my foster home. Mikesch is a great buddy to run around and wrestle with and do silly things like shooting ping-pong balls around in the bathtub. And Binky makes a great pillow to knead and cuddle up with for nap time.
I just don't like it when my foster mommy takes me to the pet fair and I have to sit in a cage all day. I'd much rather spend the day on someone's lap than in a cage! Well, at least I didn't need to go for a while because I got sick. That wasn't too much fun either though. The sneezing wasn't the worst of it. Mommy says I managed to rub too much while I had goopey eyes and ended up giving myself a corneal abrasion. So I had to wear a "lampshade collar" for a while to keep from rubbing my eyes. Yikes! That was no fun at all. I also didn't care much for those eye drops mommy had to give me every few hours. Luckily I'm done with that and doing fine again, so hopefully I'll never have to go through that again.
Well, I guess I'm going to get off the 'puter now and see if my foster mommy is getting ready to head to bed. Can't let her go to sleep without a proper kneading first!
