Window on the World

21 07 2012

 

Now that the weather has cooled off I am finally able to breathe some fresh air and clear my head.  This photo shows me in my favorite window on the world — with a nice view of a bird feeder, mulberry tree and lilac bushes.  Lots of birds and rabbits to watch.

I only now realize that I haven’t written a blog post since May.  Fact is, I haven’t had much to say and I’ve been busy with other endeavors.

For one thing, I finally got that garçonnière I mentioned.  Although, as you can see in this photo, it’s not exactly like the one I wanted, but beggars can’t be choosers.

I also briefly considered running for public office, after being inspired by a cat who has been a mayor of a town for 15 years.  After due consideration, however, I tabled that notion.  I just don’t think I’m cut out for a life of public scrutiny, especially since I hide under the bed whenever someone comes to the door.

Hope you’re all having a great summer.  Now I must get back to my window.

 

 

 





They Say It’s My Birthday

7 05 2012

According to legend, I was (probably)  born sometime in May (probably) in the year 2002.  That will make me 10 years old this year.  Quite the milestone, eh?  At our house, my birthday is always celebrated on Mother’s Day — a nice idea, though a bit sentimental, don’t you think?

If I could be granted one wish for my birthday, it would be that all animals could be free to live their lives, and never go hungry, and never be abused in any way.  And that they could know love.  If only wishing could make it so!

Of course I wouldn’t be a cat if I didn’t also want something for myself.  I was thinking it might be quite nice to have my own garçonnière (like the one below) where I could go to take my naps and think deep thoughts, and mostly get away from Mitski.

 

Most likely, however, I’ll probably just get more stupid cat toys like these:

 

But I also know I’ll be getting lots of love.  And that’s what’s really important.  Who needs a garçonnière, anyway?

 

 





Ready for Anything

Here I am, ready for anything — if anything ever actually happens.

I can strike at a moment’s notice, even though there’s nothing to strike.

Still, I remain vigilant.

 





Thinking Inside the Box

As a cat who usually thinks outside the box, I thought I’d shake things up and try thinking inside the box.

Change is good.

 

 





Tail Tip

Today’s Tail Tip:

Always give cats more than they ask for: be it an extra belly rub, scratch behind the ear, or a treat.

It’s a gesture of goodwill that will go far in cementing a lasting relationship.

 





Habits of a Highly Effective Cat: #2

Habit #2:

“When life gives you kibble, make Kibble Pate en Croute with a Catnip Reduction Sauce.”

(That’s what I get for living with a chef!)





Precious Green Thing

23 01 2012

Happy Monday, everyone.  What better way to start the week than with a poem?

Precious Green Thing

A treasure so wondrous, it must be hidden,

Safe from prying eyes.

Precious prize, symbol of mystery.

So one with the stars.  So under the couch.

No  plastic ring from a bottle, I vouch.
