Note to Cat

Dear Tabbi Kat,

Yes I get that you love me. I don't mind the nose bumps, or the gentle head butts. I do however object to a head butt that leaves me feeling like I've been smacked on the nose with a cricket bat.

Also. When waking up at oh ghod o'clock I don't expect you to be sitting on my pillow chewing on my hair. Please cut it out. I like my hair thank you very much.

Your, hairless,

CatMum.

Writer's Block: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

[Error: unknown template qotd]

It's not really a day of public note over here, I think if you asked folks about it they wouldn't in the main have a clue.

I have no kids of my own, the furkids don't count. I do have 6 nieces and nephews, and one grand-nephew though, and my hopes are that they all grow up to be strong of mind and body, develop to their full potential, and are happy with whatever path in life they choose.

Writer's Block: Dress up your Pet Day

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Um? What?

The cats would kill me if I tried to dress them up. Animals aren't humans and we shouldn't be dressing them up as if they were.

Dear Jenny Cat and Tabbi Kat,

At 6am my chest is not a cat superhighway, indeed it's not a superhighway at any time. I would like to know how you always manage to put a back foot exactly in the wrong place (for me at least) that which causes maximum discomfort.

Breakfast is not for another hour, at 7am at the earliest, as you well know. At that time I'll always (not necessarily happily) get up to feed you fuzzballs.

Your, flat chested,

CatMum

Dear Tabbi Kat,

I know I was a little slow in doing your breakfast this morning, but I did have to do the litter tray first. It was not a quick job as most of the litter was scattered across the kitchen floor.

When I did get to doing your breakfast trying to sneak up and start eating it as I was emptying the gooshy fud into your bowl doesn't make things quicker as you only shove your head in the way. It's also not a good plan to flail and knock a cake tin off the top of the stove when I pick you up to put you on the floor. That caused both Jenny Cat and you to run out of the kitchen as if all the hounds of hell were after you. On the plus side it did mean that I got you breakfasts made without further interruption. The down side is, is that I have a parallel row of scratches across my back, I assume from you claws as you used me as your launchpad.

Your, striated,

CatMum.




Dear TK and JC,

I'm not sure who was digging to Australia last night, but leaving more litter on the kitchen floor than in the litter tray is not funny. I have my suspicions, JC, as to who it was.

Your, pebble dashed,

CatMum.




Dear JC,

You've just had your breakfast, so there was no need to come and steal porage out of my bowl whilst I was still eating.

Your, hungry,

CatMum.

Dear Tabbi Kat,

After the performance of getting enough room in my own bed so I could sleep on my nice comfy memory foam I mistakenly thought I would be allowed to sleep. How wrong I was, after playing hunt the feet for a while and then both of us settling down, as I was lying on my side you then had to walk up my side perch on my shoulder and purr loudly in my ear just as I was drifting off to sleep. Once you 'd made sure I was awake you then wandered off and attacked my toes again.

Was this a scheme to get me out of my bed so you had sole possession of the side Jenny Cat does not sleep on? If so it didn't work. Jenny Cat meanwhile slept through your antics.

Can we not have the same performance tonight?

Your, raggy toed,

CatMum

Dear Tabbi Kat and Jenny Cat,

Earlier today I changed the bedding. This is a regular occurrence and you should be used to it by now. So why was it that initially you refused to go near the bed.

Now though I would like enough space to actually sleep in my own bed tonight.

Your, cold and sleeping on the floor,

CatMum.

Writer's Block: Thank You Month

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Friday. That was the last time I was out of the house and spoke to someone. Unless you count the times I say 'Thank you.' in a sarcastic manner to the cats. Like at 4:30am this morning when Jenny Cat decided to wake me up.

Writer's Block: Fantastic plastic

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I could write a long post about this, and might well do later in my own journal, but for myself no, I'd never have plastic surgery. If I was involved in an accident and it was necessary to avoid disfigurement then that is a different matter.

Writer's Block: Winter vacation

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I'd have liked to have gotten the redecoration of my bedroom finished. That's not going to happen as I've pushed myself too hard in the run up to Christmas and am having an FMS flare and digestion problems. So everything is back on hold. Things like that will get done when I can. In the meantime I'll do some of the less physical stuff like update parts of the OS and utilities on my server.

Writer's Block: Santa Claus is coming to town

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I'm not awfully sure I ever really believed in Santa. Things like leaving sherry and a mince pie out for him were of course done as it was traditional.

I have to admit though that most of my childhood is just a vague blocked blur. So maybe I did at one time believe in him, or maybe not.

My lifestyle automatically puts me on Santa's naughty list. That is unless he also indulges in the same things as me. (O.O)

Dear Tabbi,

The best place to walk when I'm putting a mug of coffee down is obviously across the coffee table. That is if you like being hit on the head with a coffee mug.

I suppose it was bad of me not to be looking when I went to put my mug down and yes, I'll look in future. Not least because I prefer my coffee inside me and not on the outside of you.

Your, coffeeless,

CatMum.

P.S., fortunately the coffee wasn't particularly hot, but still…

Dear Jenny Cat,

I'm not sure why you need so many pens. Are you taking up writing? Perhaps to icanhasceezeburger?

But please stop taking my best pens. You are a cat not a noted author.

Your, lacking in writing implements,

CatMum
