Too Much Change

Sorry everyone.
I know it's been forever and a day since I last posted.
You see, Mom's computer died.
Sure, we could've posted from her tablet,
but there were all these wonderful photos still stuck on her camera.

So, without further ado...


The humans had finally finished tearing apart the office
and putting in back together.

So I figured it was safe to explore.

Everything was so different.

So I had to explore every inch.

I discovered that my chairs were gone.
So I set out to find new ones.

This one seemed to have some potential.

I also checked the couches...

...from ever angle.

These chairs were close to the window:

After a thorough exploration I settled on this one:

I REALLY settled.

I even put it through a playability test.

I found it to be most satisfactory.

Then I got bored.

I couldn't wait to get home.

When I finally got home I found it necessary to get all my 
wiggles out.

Then I settled into sleep mode for the rest of the evening.

The days after that, autumn began to settle in.
So I had to settle in.

I did this by relentlessly trying to get Mom to play with me.

Sometimes it worked.

Sometimes it didn't.

I've also had to soak up sun from the window
rather than from actually being outside.

From here I can watch the world around me.

There have been days that were warm enough for
my human to consent to sitting outside.
I took advantage of these brief moments.

Once, it was even warm enough at night that the whole
family went on a nighttime adventure!

We went to my favorite park by the river.

That certainly helped with the bit of cabin
fever I was beginning to get.

Back home, the birds were storing up for winter.
So the bird bush was full of tempting activity!

Very tempting...

Mom also began to harvest the catnip she had grown all summer.
I couldn't wait for it to dry!

Unfortunately, I HAD to wait.

And wait...

...and wait.

It seemed to take for-e-ver!

FINALLY it was ready and Mom let me dig in!


So now autumn is in full swing.
October is well under way.

I have decided that I don't much care for October.
My friends, Tucker and Abby have moved away.
And now...
so has my best-est friend, Felix.

Mom, Maintenance Guy 1 and Nice Lady 2 let me go into
Felix's window so I could have a moment.
I took his seat on the window sill as soon as I entered the apartment
and looked at my spot outside.

The apartment was eerily empty.
I will certainly miss him.

And now, Mom tells me that Coco, the cute Tuxie girl
that lives above Felix, is leaving too.

Every cat in my building.

At least I have my humans.
And my forever home.

Bored with August

So here's the deal:
Daddy actually came home from his long trip,
but now he's on some really weird schedule.

When he got back, he took me shopping at the nip store,
so I got to pick out a new toy.
I chose a kicker toy.

If you don't know what that is, it's designed 
for kitties to grab hold of and kick the living daylights out of it.

I was quite happy with my selection.

Other than that, my August has been fairly boring.
I give you Exhibit A:

I've tried taking my boredom out on Felix.

That got me nowhere.

So, I spent some time sitting on a rock.

I also spent some time tasting the various plants by my house.
Mom's checked all of them to see if they're safe for kitties.

Mom tried to entertain me.

She often accused me of what she calls 'lazy play' or 'fake play'.
This is 'lazy play':

'Fake play' is when I act really interested like I could
pounce on the string at any second.
I do that for about 15 minutes or until Mom gets bored
and drops the string on the ground saying something like,
"If you're not going to pounce, I'm not playing!"
Then she grumbles something about 'fake play' and walks away.

She also tried to entertain me while I was outside.

That was about the extent of my play, though.

Then, just when I thought nothing more would happen
this month and it would be safe to write the blog...
...something terrible happened.

My crush, Abba-zaba, (and her roommate, Tucker, of course), moved out!

No more cute face looking down at me.
No more sound of kitty paws running around upstairs.

*SIGH* least Felix is still around.

Can't you just see the glee I'm expressing?
