My Kentucky Kin

Last week, Treater and Napper went lots of places. One place they went was to visit my human sister, Light, and her hubby, Stretch. Stretch is doing very good after his strokes and heart surgery. He still gets tired easily, and is still on medication, but he looks good. My human sister is expecting a blurpy one in a few months, so she gets tired, too. Sounds like good napping opps there, huh?

Instead, Treater and Napper and Stretch and Light spent their time together fixing up the house and doing some shopping. They are getting ready for that little critter who will be coming to live there.

Treater said she went outside in the early mornings to check on Lala, Willow, and Racer. She took these pictures in the dark and was surprised that they turned out okay. Lala and Willow are in the top picture. Big, floofy Racer is in the bottom picture.

I think Lala is too busy chasing field mice and exploring the barn to do any posting. Maybe one of these days she'll talk about her adventures.

Cold equals ... fun?!

It's really cold here in Florida. Treater said the temperature last night was "in the 30s" ... whatever that means. Yesterday, Treater thought she would air out the apartment by opening the sliding door and a couple of windows.

Guess who was happy?

All that fresh air coming in ... a nice place to perch ... and - free entertainment!!

An anole somehow sneaked in through the sliding door screen! Boy, am I ever having fun! Best of all, it's still inside and Treater can't find it.

Hee hee hee. I'm not telling!

Snuggling and cuddling

My people are home!

Treater and Napper didn't leave me forever!!

A very nice lady named Lori took good care of me, but she didn't sleep over here. I did not have anyone to snuggle and cuddle with. I liked Lori so much that I only urped one time!

Treater and Napper came back this afternoon. I'm so, so, so happy!

Guess what? Best of all?! Right now, Napper is napping and I'm snuggling and cuddling with him.

No worries

All is well here. I haven't vanished, nor have I run away. Nor has anything bad happened over here.

Can't say the same for Treater and Napper, however. It seems they "ran away" again. They got back last night after a loooooong weekend away. I think they were back at the old place, 'cause they smelled like a woofie when they came in. I was so happy to see them that I ran up to Treater and followed her everywhere... then I caught a scent of woofie. I'm sure they were disloyal to me and played with Eve, my niece dog. I was an especially good lady cat and I never once urped while they were gone!! Nothing!

Well, anyway, they're back...for a couple of days.

Yes, they are leaving again. This time for longer than a weekend. A nice lady who works in the office is going to check on me while they're gone. That's a good thing, 'cause I kept hearing "vet" and "boarding" whenever they talked about me. I'm happy that I'll get to stay home. Maybe I can convince her to give me more Greenies than I usually get.

So, I'll be doing lots of napping and watching the action outside the glass wall. Other than that, it'll be pretty quiet around here for a while. Come visit if you can. It'll be fun!

A nap, a little rain, and an award

Lately, I've enjoyed some really great naps. Usually, I'm on the beach-towel-covered footstool next to Treater's chair. Sometimes I'm in the big chair in the corner of the big bedroom. Sometimes I'm in my new hidey-place (see my previous post).

No matter where I am, I just wanna be left alone. No Iraqi cats here to worry about (at least, I don't think so).

I don't know why Treater thinks it's necessary to take my picture while I'm sleeping. I'm just sleeping, for Pete's sake! That flashy thing always wakes me up.

I'm not usually too thrilled about it, either. (Personal note to Lala's mommy: Treater says to ignore all the stuff in the background of the picture below; you'll get part of it in a couple of weeks and you'll get the rest in a few months.)

Then she started talking about the rain that was coming down. She called it a real gullywasher! She said it's a good thing because it hasn't rained in several weeks and we need it. I'm not sure who "we" refers to, but it certainly isn't me! I don't need the rain.

I guess the rain was a small distraction for her, because Treater then told me that I needed to catch up on some old business. Last week, Junior and Orion gave me this award. I'm not quite sure what it means, but an award is a good thing. Here's the award:

And here are the instructions that came with it:
"With the Premium Dardos, recognize the values that each blogger shows each day in commitment to transmit cultural values, ethical, literary, personal etc. that, in short, demonstrate their creativity by alive thinking that remains intact from their letters and words."
I think that's a rough translation from the original Portugeuse in which it was first written. I've seen this award on lots of blogs, so I won't tag anyone, but if you haven't received it and would like it, please share the honor with me and let me know.

Thank you, Junior and Orion, for thinking of me!

Now, I shall return to my nap. It's raining again, with lots of thunderbooms and lightning flashes. Perfect napping weather!

Another hiding place

Sometimes, you just have to find a good hiding place in order to get a nap and stay warm.

Treater keeps telling me that it's HOT outside, but I have to stay inside with them where they inside on keeping it COLD. I do not care for this thing called air conditioning.

So, I found a good place to hide. And nap. And stay warm.

This is the TV in the bedroom. Notice anything?

Look closely now...see anything anyone yet?
