My Year in the Country

I am the light of my adopted parents' life after generously allowing them to take me home. I adopted them at Hoboken Animal Hospital where I was having a "spa treatment" (deworming, ear mite removal, and minor plastic surgery after my injured tail was removed) because they looked so pathetic when they saw me. Now these two have gone off to China to teach English for a year, so I currently reside with the adopted grandparentals until they return. They live in the country, so there are lots of new things to see and do. I have agreed to pose for many endearing pictures and to recount my days' events here for all to purr over.

I'm Going Green, Too

On Saturday the sweaty folks returned with another gift for me! This one was from Mommy and Daddy - a box of sweet grass! I immediately knew what to do, but had to find the right line of attack. Yummy.

Sweaty People - How Uncatlike!

Today my country folks left me with WQXR playing classical tunes. Later they returned all covered in sweat, which I tried to ignore. They were helping Mommy and Daddy move out of our apartment before their departure for China. Of course, it was the hottest summer day, but I was comfy at home with the AC blasting and the radio humming. Ah...all is good.

That's my excellent mother and father there in the center. Two granddads and one uncle form bookends.

Because I am so lovable, I was presented with a new toy last night! I got the pink one. It's lots of fun to hunt this mousie and bite it and carry it around. Delightful catnip aroma, too! Purr...

What I Have Been Watching

These twittery things have been capturing my attention and causing me to chatter my teeth and make excited noises. I see them occasionally from my back window (patio door) and my heart goes ger-thump. Tonight I saw a red cardinal, which really got my attention. Fortunately for him, the door was closed...or else!

Ahh...the fresh country air

Note my purrfect profile as I scout the backyard for intruders and offending chipmunks. I enjoy surveying the great outdoors from the great indoors.

Welcome to my Purrfect First Posting

Yes, I am I should be life-size on the blog's header for all to admire! Many more adorable pics of me coming your way...meow.
