Tyson had a birthday yesterday, and Dad kept thinking it was my birthday yesterday, so I’m going to get ready today in case I have a birthday coming up soon! I’m getting ready for it now, while I have a bit of time, because a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush. A bird to a cat is.…they are fun to watch!
We decided I don’t have enough new pictures on my Catster page so we found some from 2007, 2009 and 2011. I wonder if our camera was broke in those even years of 2008 and 2010!
Last night I scared my Dad a little bit. Every time he comes home from work, I am always either sleeping right at the door, so that he won’t miss me, or if I’m upstairs I come running down because I know we’ll be fed. Last night I was no where to be found when Tyson, Elsa and Tabatha ran into the kitchen when he got home. He did a few things around the house, and still, I had not come to the kitchen.
I do have a favorite spot to sleep on upstairs on a box, but I never usually stay there when he gets home. So he went upstairs and there I was on the box, alert and bright like nothing was wrong! (I wanted him to think just because Tyson has a birthday, I need attention paid to me on his birthday too!).
Lately when he goes in the bathroom at bedtime, I go in with him and jump on the chair because my new favorite thing is to have him brush me in the bathroom. So he brushes me and it’s a lot of fun; and every night I continue going in with him because I know he’ll have to brush me!
Also I have this other new thing of walking in slow motion! This happens because Elsa is learning bad habits from Tabatha. Just because Tabatha growls at Elsa, it does not mean Elsa has to turn around and slap me if I’m nearby! So sometimes when Elsa is in my way, especially heading into the kitchen for food, I walk V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W-L-Y past her.
I guess I think she won’t actually SEE me if I walk almost motionless and tip toe past her. Most of the time it works!
Other times, though, Elsa is sweet as pie to me. We were thick as thieves when we first came here together in 2007. She’s OK, I don’t mind, she’s being a cat! She still comes to lie beside me from time to time, deliberately and on purpose, knowing that I’ll wash her face and clean her off.
So I must go and pretend I don’t know my birthday is coming up (but I'll leave some hints) and try not to think about the nice presents Dad has undoubtedly bought me! If I had a pitch pipe, I could meow “Happy Birthday” in tune, as a hint!
Love, Ginger xo
