I have been away for a bit but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. This is a pick of me at our old place checking out the dryer. I just love fresh clothes. Come to think of it I like dirty clothes too but we won’t talk about that. I like the way clothes feel under my body especially when they are warm, but I would rather not wear them. Each time I think of the Christmas reindeer costume Taylor gets out every year it makes me cringe. I do not look cute with antlers on my head!
It seems as if people don’t communicate face-to-face the way they used to anymore. Now they do what is called “social networking”. Since my friends have all joined the world of cyberspace I’m jumping in too.
Hello social networking world! It’s me Caity!
I too now have a Twitter and a Facebook to keep in touch with all of you.
It has been so long since my last post you can imagine I must have a lot to say – you will not be disappointed.
Mommy finally graduated from college. Yes can you believe it? Now she has no excuse to be away from me during the daytime. Well unless you want to count that thing she calls work. But we’ll get back to that later.
Remember my new feline siblings, Cleopatra and Jade? They aren’t kittens anymore. They now are full grown almost 2 year old cats. ” I call them little demons” even though there is nothing little about Cleopatra. In fact I don’t think I have ever seen a cat’s butt the size of hers before. Actually this works in my favor because now I’m not the only one who begs for food.
The little demons are sisters but Cleopatra or “Patra” as they now call her is the feline leader. I used to think my late sister Shadeau had an attitude but she had nothing on Patra.
This cat thinks she owns the place! Doesn’t she realize I was here first? Of course she does have a cat brain which means she doesn’t understand some things. When she was little I was kind to her, now that she is bigger she wants to take over my window seat! Actually both of the little demons do.
No one is allowed in my window seats while I am there. The audacity of them to even consider sitting there amazes me. Now when I want to use one of my seats I have to tell Mommy and wait until she removes them. Sure I could share, and sometimes I do, but not all the time.
I still guard the house. We moved into an apartment from the condo so I lost my large patio. I guess it is ok because my new window is right in front of the laundry room. Each time someone passes by I bark at them unless they are extremely boring.
My other feline sister, Jade is a real piece of work. She belongs to Taylor, my other owner and Patra is Mommy’s. I think Jade belongs on the short bus.
Each time someones name is called she answers as if they are calling her. She constantly eats my food and has an odd obsession with opening cabinet doors. Oh and did I mention she pees in the sink? Nasty!!
Now the bathroom doors have to remain closed because she is too mentally challenged to use her own litter box. In fact she uses Patra’s litter box – much to the dismay of Patra.
The funny thing is that Patra always gets her back for it by using hers. At night Patra chases Jade around the house. It keeps me awake but I think it is funny to watch.
I don’t think she fully understands the concept of food. Sure she eats, but not nearly as much as Patra. When Mommy offers her something different from kibble she doesn’t eat it. Except for that time she ate the fortune cookie.
Jade is so attached to Taylor that she fears the shower will cause her eminent danger. Each time Taylor decides to bathe, which is never as often as it should be, Jade frantically claws at the shower curtain and screams. Of course this is insane – I agree. She doesn’t stop screaming until Taylor turns off the water and opens the curtain. You can hear her saying, “I’m ok Jade,” LOL. Truly it is a sight to see.
My brother Symba is still vain as ever. His days are spent staring at himself in a mirror blowing kisses and telling himself how pretty he is. Mommy has been telling him lately how sexy he is so I’m sure it won’t be long before I hear him saying “symba sexy bird” and blowing kisses.
I guess the most exciting thing I need to tell you is about Mommy’s new business adventure. She loves photography – as if you couldn’t tell from all the pictures of me. Sure I’m beautiful, but I get so tired of that flash going off in my face. I have grown weary of siting still while she snaps pictures of me. Thankfully she came up with this idea.
Mommy wants to start her own pet photography business. Yes it is a great idea! She hasn’t come up with a business name yet, but she is excited about starting this new venture.
Her idea is to invite pets and their owners to her studio (when she gets one) to dress up and participate in a photo session for a reasonable fee. Mommy has clothes, props and all the fun stuff for a great photo. Never mind having to go to the mall to meet with Santa or the Easter bunny. Mommy will take care of it all.
I will keep you posted on future developments with this.
Until next time keep barking and give your owner a sloppy wet kiss in honor of Valentine’s day today.
Mommy is never home. Neither is the “other one” that is not so smart. Speaking of not being smart, can you believe they leave me here with these two devlish kittens? I mean seriously – why bring them home in the first place? If I had it my way I would take them back to the home they came from. They eat my food, drink my water and play with my toys. No of course I don’t want to share. What Russell does? Would you? I don’t care how cute they are either. Each time they come rushing from their room they always want to greet me by brushing up against me. I dont’ know about them. Maybe they are a little cute.
Back to mommy not being home. She is gone all the time at work and school and it makes me sad. I miss her so much. When she comes home she gives me kisses, plays with me and tells me how much she misses me. If that is the case then why not stay home and play with me all day?
I am left with Symba. He calls himself “pretty bird” but they should teach him to say “messy bird” instead. He throws his food onto the floor each time they feed him instead of eating it in his cage. They should just throw it on the floor in the beginning an let hiem loose. Oh they can’t do that – I forgot – the kittens would have a field day.
On other homefront news, the “other one” has permanently moved into my room with mommy so now sometimes I sleep in her bed because she has candy. I like it when she has candy. She is not smart enough to hide it in a good place so I steal it from her when she falls asleep. You know what is so strange about her? She sleeps with her mouth open. Sometimes I sneak up beside her and look inside to see if something will crawl or fall out, but so far nothing has. If anything changes I will let you know. So far she has been really good about keeping the bed free of liquids – I will just leave it at that.
My birthday is coming up on November 6th. I will be a 9 year old toddler. Yes a toddler because I still like to eat carpet and other things that are on the floor. I found a yummy pencil the other day. I wonder what I will find today?
Well thanks for reading my posts. I am sorry it has been a while since I last posted, but Mommy has been busy. Mommy please spend more time with me at home. I really miss you.
It has been some time since my last post. I was grieving. My sister died. She passed away so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye. She had some sort of lymphoma. I miss her so much.
For several months it was just me, but then last week mommy brought me home two tiny little sisters. They were 5 weeks old – 6 weeks now. They run and play and get into things. I haven’t figured them out yet, but when I do I will keep you posted.
In the meantime here is a picture of one of them. Her name is Jade. The other one’s name is Cleo. I will get you a picture of her later.
I know my big sister Shadeau is in heaven. Jade and Cleo help me not miss her quite so much.
Thanks for reading.
I haven’t been able to write in a while because Mommy has been busy destroying the house. She says she is remodeling, but all I know is one room has no carpet and all of my sister’s furniture is in the living room. It makes it more difficult to eat the bird seed my brother drops for me.
Apparently the remodeling has something to do with both of my sisters. My feline sister has been using the carpet, blankets, and anything else she can find as her litter box. At first, after the wet the bed we thought it was because she was angry with my owner, but Mommy took her to see Dr. Longsie and they said she has a urinary tract infection – and a bad attitude.
My owner/other sister made several messes on the carpet that were beyond repair, so Mommy said she had to rip up the carpet, have the floor repaired, then replace it. It has taken longer because it is more expensive than Mommy realized and the flooring requires some additional work before anything can be done – so our home is a mess. Each time I go into that room my feet touch the the concrete and get cold, especially in the mornings. My sister doesn’t like it either, but maybe she should have used her litter box and we wouldn’t have this problem.
Oh she also has to take medicine for her urinary tract infection. It is this bottle of white liquid that has to be refrigerated. Mommy puts it in a needle type thing and my other sister/owner holds her. She hates it. As soon as they are finished she always runs away to hide. I tried to comfort her, but she wasn’t feeling friendly – not that she ever is – but it was worse this time.
I know what it is like to to have to take medicine. Mommy gives me something she calls Benadryl for my allergies. She used to give me pills, but I decided I no longer liked the taste of them so now I get a liquid. It tastes like bubble gum and makes the fur around my mouth all sticky. I try to hide from her,but its like when she wants to give me a bath – she always finds me.
Mommy got a new bicycle! She even said she might get one of those seats and put it on the back so that I can ride too. That would be fun. She could be my chauffeur. She said something about wanting to lose weight. I hate the word diet. She is always telling me I am on a diet and that I can’t have things. Like when I go to the pantry and try to paw the door open, sometimes she tells me that I can’t have any treats. Every now and then I do the cute “head tilt” thing she likes and I get my way. Other times my sister will toss me some cereal or I just pick up after her (remember she is the messy one).
We recently got satellite TV so when Mommy leaves the house she always leaves the TV on for me to watch. This week I have been watching CNN. It’s not a show for Jack Russells. I mean how many times can they talk about this thing called economy. It seems like they show bad things. I want to see happy things. I must find the remote and figure out how to change the channel to something different.
Mommy started a new job at her school’s computer lab. She is good with computers so things should go well for her. I miss her when she is not home, but I have more time now to do things like go through the garbage and search for hidden treasure. The other day I found a tootsie roll. Boy was it good!
Well thanks for stopping by to read my blog.
Until next time.
