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.

Hmmm....this one seems to have my name on it.

Okay, if you insist...rrrrrippp, teeeeeaarrrrrr. Merry Christmas to me! and you, too!

Home for the Holidays

Oh, holy I am contemplating the glowing candlelit view from my perch atop Big Ma's piano. She has been busy decorating my house with red and green thingies now. Big Pa has been out on the ladder a lot cleaning gutters and putting up lights. My, my...they never rest.
Sometimes when I walk across the electric piano I accidentally step on the on switch. So far I haven't played a tune, but Ma found the glowing red light on a few times. I must practice my Nutcracker Suite for the holidays.
This is the route I take to get down off the piano. Why jump directly down and jar my bones when I can slink along table tops and...

jump over furniture before...

landing squarely on Ma's toes. I am holding her down so that she will have to bend down and pet me. I missed the Big People when they were away on vacation, so I've been busy purring and getting a lot of attention. I miss you, too!
