I Wonder....

Greetings to all humans, cats, bunnies, dogs, and other creatures. I'm sitting in my cuddle cup pondering life's mysteries. There sure are a lot of them. Love, loss, blessings, suffering...the list goes on and on. The two-legged one says that now that my need for food and shelter is being met, I've got more energy to devote to deep thinking. She also says that I shouldn't spend too much time thinking because even philosopher cats need to maintain a balance between thought and action. I responded by tagging her on the nose and running off to hide. You're it TLO!!

A Portrait In Purple

Hello all my blogging friends. The two-legged one got creative with a photo of me that my auntie took when she visited at Thanksgiving. The TLO used her picture editing software to apply two "illusions" - Chunky Chalk and Plastic Wrap -plus some colorizing to create this special portrait of me. I can't understand why she went to all that fuss. I'm beautiful enough without the use of any "illusions"! Maybe the TLO got carried away after I actually let her kiss me on my head. Little did she know that I felt a bug crawling around up there and I wanted her to take it off. I don't know where the bug went - all I know is that it was gone after she smooched me.

By the way, the TLO thinks that the area of black fur on my side is in the shape of a particular animal. Any guesses?

'Tis the Season

Last night, it snowed pretty much for the first time this winter here in Northern Virginia. I'm all comfy on my fleecy pad, contemplating how nice it is to be safe in a home with the two-legged one. This time last year, I was living outside my foster mother's home. I'd show up at her front porch at midnight and she'd put food out for me. I was so scared of people that I wouldn't let her get close to me. I'd just meow my thanks for the food, eat, and hide in the bushes again. It got so cold after a while that she created a shelter for me with a heating pad inside. I gladly took up residence inside it. She was such a nice lady! Now, I've got a home with the TLO who has been trained to anticipate my every need. Life is good. It is my wish for the holiday season that all cats, dogs, bunnies, and humans will be in a safe, warm place and know that they are loved.

It's Been A Long Time

Hello all cats, dog, bunnies, and humans! I'm sorry that I've been off the web for a while. The two-legged one and my auntie were so busy eating and shopping during Thanksgiving week that they didn't turn the computer on for me. Thank you very much for all of the holiday wishes. I appreciated each and every one of them. I loved Thanksgiving!! The two-legged one put a big puffy bed in the middle of the living room floor. I got to jump on it and look out the windows. I also got to jump from it to other spots in the living room. Neato! There were all kinds of bags around for me to poke my head into. My auntie stayed here and she gave me such good back scratches, I was in kitty nirvana. Did you really have to go back to the mitten state auntie? Please come back soon. All in all, it was a super holiday and I had lots to be thankful for, including the TLO, my auntie, and all of my blogging friends.

Feeling Fine and Mellow

Now that the cooler weather is upon us, especially at night, I'm becoming a very snuggly girl. I've learned to trust the two-legged one enough to lay on her leg and let her pat me when she's sitting in the big blue chair (yes, I can share it with her sometimes). The TLO is nice and warm and doesn't bother me too much with her need to stroke my wonderfully soft fur. When she tried to hug me today, though, I had to put my paws down. I'm still not entirely convinced that the TLO isn't going to put me in my carrier and drop me off at another stranger's house.

Mwah Ha Ha!

I've taken over the two-legged one's chair! She thought I'd chosen another one but now that it's getting colder at night, I wait 'til she gets up to do something and then I jump up and settle into the nice, warm spot that she's left behind. When she comes back, I look all pitiful and cute and she lets me stay there. Sweet!!

Lots O' Fun

The two-legged one made this activity center for me out of a Lands End box. She puts balls or other toys inside and I jump in and try to bat them out of the holes. It's fun! I also like to just sit in the box and meditate like Sheriff Jinky. Sometimes I jump in and pretend to dig in the box. The TLO gets a little nervous when I do that - she's afraid I'm going to use my activity center as a litter box! What does she take me for, some uncouth beast?
