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.
Meow.

My Paw Is Bigger Than Your Paw

Cody and I look adorable here having our little tete-a-tete. He is a good buddy, but I might just have to gnaw on that hand of his if he holds it there much longer. Too tempting!
Last week there was a BIG rainstorm right over our house with TERRIBLE claps of thunder. I slithered and slinked along the floor as fast as I could to hide under Cullen's bed where I stayed safe and sound for hours until Ma coaxed me out. Tummy was hungry, too.

A Happy Reunion!

Cullen returned from China on July 4th!!!, and I greeted him with due kitty kat dignity. Actually I was absolutely delighted to see him and did not do my usual quivery quake and run routine when a stranger comes into the house. Nonetheless, I must not show too much enthusiasm so as to keep him on his toes and willing to meet my every wish and need. Catnip, please!




I really am happy to see him here, really!

Harmonic, Karmic, Cosmic Achievement

The Big People have done it at last! It was years in the making, but they have finally attained furniture-layout bliss in the family room!!
It makes for easier navigation for me as I now have a direct shot down to my...

sleepy-bye spot. Meow!

UFO, Oh, NO!

My eyes are glowing after my encounter with aliens last night. They tried to put a spell on me in order to study my feline physique, but I kickboxed them back to outerspace. No one messes with my beautiful belly! I'm lookin good!!

And One and Two...

Rah! Rah!, Ma.!! You can do it...push up that flab and give me ten more!!!

Poor Ma has been attempting her push ups so that she can keep up with me now that I have streamlined my saddlebags. Don't tell her, but she doesn't stand a chance, poor thing. But do notice how well she dresses for her routine! Actually, she has just come home from work and doesn't have the common sense to change her clothes.

Sometimes I distract her by doing adorable things like stretching out into the shape of a banjo, and sometimes I like to crawl underneath her when she is in mid push. Then she has to do some quick adjusting so that she doesn't crush me with her bulk. This keeps her agile.

We celebrate the completion of her puny attempt at feline fitness by crossing our paws and smiling for the camera. Nap time!

Cat's Eyes

Notice how everyone chases after purrfection? Divine eyes r'I, but the rest of you folks
will just have to use Maybelline! Meow!! Maria's really looking cat-cute!!

Here's Pa and Maria on the latest trek to Boston. This time the big folks left me in Cody's charge, so there were no scary catsitter visitations. Purr.
Ma looks crazy, like a cat. She's got great fangs....also claws, but they're good for scratching me under my chin. I was glad to see my "familiars" return. I miss you.

Just Hangin' Around



Thought you'd like some more pix of me doing what I do best. But wait - now that my diet is working, I have discovered new heights! My "saddlebags" are lighter, so I have made the giant leap up to the kitchen counter - territory never before explored! Today I lounged on the counter under the warm lights while Ma chopped stuff for dinner. It was cozy. Ma has given up quickly on making me get down. Victory!
By the way, how do you like my goldfish? Aren't they adorable? I might enjoy swatting at them, myself, but you can "feed" them by clicking your cursor. You can also make them follow your cursor around, like the dopey things they are. Not like me - you can't make me do that!

I Am On A Diet!

When a sunbeam calls, I answer it. So what if maybe that then inspires a little nap or two. Wouldn't you do the same? Now the alarm bells have gone off in the big peoples' heads because they think that I am packing extra saddlebags. Hummpph.

I do my stretches and catisthenics...

I work out on my scratchy "treadmill"


and I do Greco-Roman wrestling followed by...

cuddle time.
That should burn a few calories, right? Nevertheless, and less is the operative word here, I am now receiving smaller portions of my beloved chow. Pitiful me. But perhaps a sleeker me is heading your way. We'll see.

Hi, I'm Back and so is the Snow!





It was pretty white yesterday, but I was cozy warm inside while Ma and Pa shoveled and cleaned off the cars. They were both home from work thanks to the snowfall. I hear China is cold, cold, cold. Same here.
