Skills: Jumping to try to catch the laser on the wall, mol!
Arrival Story: Former owner was elderly, sick and unable to keep him beyond Feb 2012 and passed away due to the cancer. Since I'm home alone most of the time I made the decision to adopt him. He is an awesome cat! He greets visitors instead of running and hiding.
Christmas was good to mom and me. I got a stocking full of new toys & treats!
Mom got Reese's cookie making stuff with mitts, candy, scented body stuff, 2 DVDs with Christmas classics that were on tv all the time & Taylor Swift's 1989 on Vinyl.
New Year's Eve came and there was a bingo party downstairs. Mom made herself a home made pizza before she went down to play for 3 hours. She got bored so came back up to catch Taylor Swift on the tv show & to ring in the new year with me.
She was feeling exhausted after a busy December but when she started getting aches & coughing she knew she was dealing with the flu (not the stomach one). She made tea, drank it up & medicated the worst symptoms and has been on the mend the past several days. It has been extremely cold lately in Minnesota so she's been home a lot so far this year.
The worst part about winter is the dry air so she's been trying to keep the humidifier going almost nightly. Our hair still stands on end and the shocks are no good to either of us. Tonight she's running the humidifier and giving me a mini bath with kitty bath wipes.
Mom has some new surprises for me that are all hidden in my stocking. It's just high enough that I can't see in it or get it down myself. Mom appreciates my love & dedication I've shown all year even when she wasn't feeling her best with her gallbladder removal so she bought me more gifts than anyone!
She's been busy. She attended a friend's baby shower last weekend. Just last night she attended her nephew's 1st birthday party and spent the actual birthday evening with him. I hear he got his first taste of cake and frosting all over his face.
The tree looks good but I'm staying away from it because of the ssscat barrier. All mom and I really want is a silent night together, so maybe Christmas night that will happen. We're still cramped up in the tiny apartment and seeking quieter housing options after winter ends in the northern plains.
