Company is Coming

Yup, Mr Karate, Rubylocks and Little Miss have flown across the country from the City of Angels to New Hampster to visit friends and family.

My very own private little sticky person. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this.

I Was Insulted

I was debased.

Iwas humiliated.

I was chased.

I was caught.

I was caged.

I went to the vet.

I was poked. I was prodded. I was shot (twice!) I was "raked" to find any clumps (there were none) and my teeths were examined. (They would like to take some away, I guess I have some bad ones.) I had my claws trimmed and my ears cleaned. They put goop in my ears.

I weigh 13.6 pounds and the v-e-t was amazed that my eyes are good and I can run and jump as well as I could when I was a kit.

I am perfect.

I am unsurprised.

A New Litter Box

Mom got me a new litterbox and new, softer, litter. I've had two Breeze boxes for over eight years, but lately my aim isn't so good. Mom wondered if I didn't like the way the pellets felt on my paws. We've watched enough Jackson Galaxy to know that sometimes if a cat misses the box it's a good idea to change the kitty litter, so Mom did.

Naturally I'll never tell, but I haven't used the other litter box since Mom got the new one, so Mom is counting that as a good thing.

 It's not quite as nice as spending a sunny morning on the front porch, but it'll do.

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Little Miss,
Happy Birthday to you!

and many, many more!

Easy Like Sunday and Millie Monday...

Hey, I've been hanging out on the porch for the last couple of days. Right now I just need a quiet place, and I found it behind one of Mom's quilts.

Mom was at Quilted Threads this past weekend, when  a lady came up to her and asked, "Excuse me, are you Millie's Mom?"

Mom has never heard that before, and it really made her smile.

It made me smile too. OK, it made me purr.

(This is Mom with our new friend Carol.)

My 11th Gotcha Day!

Eleven years ago I was Gotcha'd by my Mom, and I've lived with her in New Hampster ever since.

It's also my 11th Blogoversary. I've been blogging for 11 years (although I've slacked off a lot lately.)

I wish every cat could have as good a life as I have now.

Yup, I'm a lucky girlcat.

Mr Karate & Little Miss

Apparently Little Miss loves water as much as Mr Karate does.

She's pretty funny too!

Easy Like Sunday

There's nothing like taking a bath in the sun.

Breakfast at Wimbledon

I am watching Wimbledon and rooting for Roger Federer.

Paws crossed.

 Oh holy carp! Roger won his 8th Wimbledon title! Now he has 19 Major titles, more than anybody else! Woo Hoo!!

Sleepy Saturday

It's sunny, it's 76F and it's dry. I am napping on the front porch.

Where else would I be?

Back in the Saddle Again

I am sorry I haven't been blogging regularly. Mom and I have been wicked busy.

Last month (wow, has it been that long?) Mom and Mim-may and I flew to Chicago.  Here I am in the airport.  I've been to lots of airports. Airports are no big deal.

From Chicago we went to Colorado, a very big, very square state "out west."  This picture was taken at Kenosha Pass, 10,000 feet above sea level. That's high. In our house in New Hampster, we are 318 feet above sea level.

See? I really was there.

During the 9 days we were in Colorado we did a lot of nothing, and some neat stuff, but I didn't pose for many pictures. Mom has been very bizzy with her day-hunting gig (she says they are short-handed and she is doing the jobs of 3 people) and that's why she hasn't been able to help me blog as much.

I'm trying to get her to see the error of her ways. She's been posting stuff on her other blog that should have been posted here, but I think she got into a rut. I've told her in no uncertain terms that she has to get back in the saddle (to use a Colorado term) and help me post more often.

In the meantime, we are both watching Wimbledon and rooting for my favorite guy, Roger Federer.

Some things never change.
