Did Ya Miss Me?

Yes, it has been a long time. A lot has happened, including a move four hours away, into our own place. We are buying, not renting, so hopefully, we will be here forever. I have a "garden window" upstairs so that I can take a nap in the sun and it is also a nice vantage point for watching squirrels.
Then at the top of the stairs, there is a small alcove where I can watch what is going on downstairs. Nothing ever happens down there, but still...
We are at the 5,000 foot level, so we will get some snow in the winter. I'll be happy to watch that from inside, where I will be nice and cozy. We have some work to do on this place, starting with getting a stove (!), but I think I will like it because it is bigger than our Cambria studio and I really like going up and down the stairs.

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. As you can see, I've been quite busy.

Feather Mouse

The lady calls any toy with feathers on it a "feather mouse." I have no idea why.

Here I am, playing with a "feather mouse." I'll call it that just to humor her.

I'm Still Kickin'

I'm supposedly the boss of the lady, but she posts for me when she feels like it. Which is rarely. Her latest excuse(s)? Had to have Windows 7 installed because Microsoft no longer supported Windows XP. She has not re-loaded Photoshop Elements, or the digital camera software. Yeah, right. She always has some whiny "explanation" about why things are not done. She finally uploaded this photo, even though she used some funky free photo thing to crop it.

Anyhow, I am doing very well. Have not had any medical issues in a few months now. I hope all of you are fine. Maybe I can prompt (scratch) her into visiting my online feline friends.

Making Biscuits

Although this kneading is called, "making biscuits," I've always thought of it as making cinnamon buns. If you want to make tender biscuits, you just barely mix the wet and dry ingredients. If you kneaded the dough, it would make tough biscuits. Since cinnamon buns use a yeast dough, you really do need to knead (ha). Being a cat, I am an expert on most things.

Birds of a Feather

The lady has a friend who gives her a stack of catalogs and magazines every couple of weeks. She was sitting in her chair, putting them in various piles. She glanced down and noticed my interest in a particular magazine.

Cat and Mouse: It Has Been a Long Two Weeks

Not a happy camper.

I've been forced to take medicine for the past two weeks. Today (just a few minutes ago) was the last dose.  It was some liquid called, "Orbax," and I had to have 1.5 ml put in my mouth via a syringe once a day.  I lost a lot of trust in the lady, I can tell you that.  It got so that if she even got up from her chair, I went and hid under the bed. If she looked at me, I ran away. She had to be very, very sneaky. I was the mouse in this little game, and I'm sorry to say that I got caught. Every day. For fourteen days.

She said she felt sorry for having to grab me, and I know that she was speaking the truth.  Which is why I didn't bite her. Oh, I definitely would try to either run or wiggle away, but if she had a firm grip on me (okay, she sort of sat on me....[oh, the humiliation]) I would let her open my mouth (okay, I would clench my teeth as hard as I could, but she knew some sort of trick to open my mouth without hurting me), and then she gave me that medicine. It wasn't bad tasting, but I don't like being held down against my will. It was scary.  She did praise me afterward ("You are SUCH a good boy, Mr. Black! I'm SO proud of you!")...I'm not some baby, but, I still appreciated the kind words.  I did glare at her a lot (see photo above).  And, I ignored her when she tried to talk to me.

I'm ignoring you. Get it?!

I am feeling much better. My urine output is normal. That "other" output is normal.  I like my new food.  So, things are looking up for me! No more medicine, la la la la la.
