Happy Halloween

Halloween is a lot of playful fun around here and Terry says its a time when they have "Human Treats." I know I love my cat treats, so I can understand. Its funny seeing my pet humans dress so strange, though.

For those of you who celebrate, we wish a good and happy time. Trick or Treat!

After the Bath

If you could hear Myst now... grumbling and moaning something about getting a vet bath and having to endure eye cleaning and trimming and the indignity of wearing a bandanna and having to pose for pictures and on and on. Better him than me. I had a vet visit not too long ago anyway.

Old Family Photo

This is an old family photo back when Dandelion and Buzzy were alive and Myst lived with us a few weeks as a kitten and everyone accepted him then. Those were the good ole days.

It Came From "Outside"

This came from "Outside" and has all kinds of good grass smells on it. One of us likes to sit by these things incase they move and become pounce-worthy. At any rate, they smell interesting.

Myst on the Prowl

While I think sleeping is fun right now, Myst has other ideas. I feel a pounce attack coming on.

Busy Day's End

It has been an exhausting day of running, eating, grooming, being groomed, nagging my humans for various things, looking out the window, chasing and being chased and well.. whew... ready for (another) nap here.

Quick Change Artist

Terry was opening the blinds to a new window we recently got access to. As she started to open them, she heard distant running. I began tearing down the hall, Myst chasing me.

She was almost done raising the blinds when I ran into the room, jumped up on the bed in front of the window and then to the ledge and made myself look like I had been sitting there all day, interested in the view outside.

Meanwhile, Myst came running in, but he is more cautious when entering a room and stopped to look around, forgetting what he was chasing me for and eventually finding something else to do.

Terry is still not used to how I can suddenly stop a race and look like I had been sleeping all day instead.

Terry's Aunt Passed Away at Age 92

Everyone is sad here, but also glad for the long life Aunt Vera lived. I can sense the sadness and I am doing my best to stay in the center of attention and keep everyone's minds busy here.

My New Favorite Place

Wow! A fun new place for me to sit.

Terry says this is getting out fall clothes, packing some summer clothes. I am not sure why humans change their fur so often. But no matter, its obvious THIS place was made for me to sit in.

Terry is still sad about her aunt. I am trying to distract her by being silly. I think it helps. Thanks for all your notes and concern.

Great Aunt Vera

Terry is sad today. Her 92 year old great aunt has a shattered hip and it looks like she is not recovering from the surgery. They have stayed in touch through the years and Terry calls her every week. Everyone is sad around here today. I can feel it too. Things are quieter.

This is Emmie, one of the cats that Terry was watching over the weekend. Emmie is a beauty and very friendly, Terry says. Hmmm, maybe I should start a wall of pinup girls.

My Sofa

Enjoying my sofa but keeping an eye out for Myst who tends to sneak up on me.

New Toy

Its that time of year when we find new toys on the floor to bat around and humans eat more of something they call "candy" even when they shouldn't.

This is Jenny, my favorite pet human who belongs to Rocky and Lucky now. She is Terry and Richard's daughter, a trauma nurse at the hospital who specializes in infant intensive care. I do not understand what that all means except that she is very smart.

She is good for us cats and plays, brushes, cleans and takes good care of us. I miss her and love when she visits, but I know Rocky and Lucky keep a close eye on her and her family.

It was a rough day. My humans did not set out my favorite food right away. I had to wait and beg for 30 minutes first! They said they had to do things like get out of bed and take showers. I do not know why there is the slightest hesitation here but oh well. I am happy now .... and a bit sleepy.

The Kitten Days

Here is an old picture of me as a kitten. I've always been pretty comfortable with computers and this spot is especially so I can keep an eye on things up close. Nevermind that a hand will reach out and pet me cause my pet humans can not do much else, they say.

But its no problem, there is nothing more important than petting me anyway so it all works out.

Move Over, Myst

Darn! He beat me to the sunny patch in front of the door. I guess I should share some of my sun with others, though.

Taking Advantage of a Good Sleeping Spot

Fall and winter are the best times for finding patches of sunlight because of the way this house faces. And a patch of sunlight marks the best place to sleep, no matter how I must stretch to take advantage of it.

Why Do Humans Like Hot Food?

I don't get it. Why do humans like hot food? Its a curious thing and I am keeping a close eye on them as I relax here and watch them do something they call "cook."

They are interesting pets, but who knows why they do the things they do? I will never completely understand them. The house smells good, though.

Fall is Here

The days are getting cooler. I am shedding a little less and my coat is getting a little thicker. I have noticed one VERY GOOD side effect of all this cold: more bugs in the house! Yippeeee!
