Learning to Share My Space


I haven’t shared much about my progress lately so I thought I’d give you a peek into my latest growth in confidence. As you all know, I have struggled in trying to learn how to “be” with The Kid Sage in my castle. But she has been her for about four years now and while I still struggle learning to know what “play” is, I have become more open to sharing my space.

Now it is supposed to be “Winter” here in Nor Cal but heck, it has been feeling like Spring since February showed up. But before February made its appearance, we had some nice cool weather and Mom L took out an old than dirt blankie she has had since her high school days! You KNOW that is old!

Well it seems that both TKS and I luvluvluv sleeping on this blankie. It is really thin, probably some acrylic thing not real wool, but holy mouses do we both think it is toasty warm and soft. So Mom L has been keeping this blankie over her at night so’s I can snuggle on it nice and close to her. Trouble is TKS also likes it so she sucks up to the other side of Mom L. For some reason Mom L doesn’t always appreciate bein’ the middle of a “kitty cat toasted sandwich”! She starts throwin’ off the covers and TKS and I go flying!

So Mom L makes sure we can use that yummy blankie during the day time for out naps if we want. I, as first cat, get dibs on it first or course. But surprisingly, I am allowing TKS to join me—and she is getting way closer than I have ever let her get.

Yeah, I know we both look pretty grumpy here, but we really did relax and nap together for a couple of hours once that smart phone left the room. There are only about ten inches between us. Heck, out tails could have been touching we were so close.

I have even been known to get up on the blankie even if TKS is there first. That’s something I never have done before.

We have both found that the Winter sun puddle on the day bed in Dad P’s office is best enjoyed in the morning. I usually retire to that spot after I finish my brekkies, but TKS has discovered it and on this day she beat me to it!

You can tell it was cooler than now by the next photos of me. I am lying on my special hand knitted pink blankie which is on top of my fave blue afghan. Mom L caught me early one evening as I was preparing to have my TV watchin’ nap.

Thanks for coming by to visit. I will have a post for next Monday about the cat colony Mom L and I have taken on as one of my Paw It Forward projects.


The Kid Sage As House Manager


I’m working on a sort’a impawtant blog post with Mom L so I thought my readers might like a look at how TKS helps us all keep my castle our home in order.

Now I have taught her a great deal about making sure our humans know just how to pack boxes. No question that I have had a ton more experience than TKS.

You guys sure you REALLY want this to go to the library??

Yup, we cats have to make sure they know to keep their important “stuff” at home!

And TKS is the expert at helping Dad P get that fussy Christmas tree in and out of its box. She helped once again this year, making sure that little tree is packed away nice and snug.

Ok Dad P. I think we can tape this tree up until next year.

Never forget that TKS, unlike me, always insures that our bed sheets are well slept on prior to going onto our actual bed. The humans wouldn’t know what to think if they didn’t find some cat furs on the nice clean sheets.

These nice warm sheets have my feline blessing.

I hate to admit this but sometimes I think TKS puts in more computer time than even me! And she doesn’t even have a blog!!

Keep at it Dad P. I’m just resting my eyes.

Heck, I only snooze snoopervise with Mom L when there is sun coming in on my watch tower!

And what does TKS do after a long day at helping around the house? Why just what any self respecting cat worker would do.

Take a vacation!!!

What do you do to help around the house? Let TKS hear from you in comments on her special blog post.





My Secret Santa Paws ROCK!


I know this is the first day of a whole New Year and I am just getting around to posting about our Secret Santa Paws package. But, I have a good excuse for bein’ late. You see we haven’t had any drippy water days here but Ms. Sunshine sure has been stingy with her light. Seriously, we haven’t had enough natural light for Mom L to take photos of us enjoying our prezzies.

We finally got a couple of hours yesterday so Mom L had TKS get to opening that big box from our Secret Santa Paws. We are tickled our package was sent by our pals from Lola The Rescue Cat, Lexi and Lola!! APAWS for our Secret Santa Paws because they totally rock!

Unfortunately I wasn’t willing to leave my warm snuggly Alfie bed, so I let TKS do all the inspecting and opening of the prezzies. My art-right-us has kept me from doing my usual snoopervision chores. Good ole TKS was more than ready and willing.

Ok, can I dive in now?

Of course Mom L had to get her iPhone ready so TKS had to cease and desist.

Seriously Mom L! I don’t wanna wait much longer!

Finally she got the go ahead.

Now!! Take my photo for cat’s sake so’s I can get to inspecting

Now for the real work. Nosing out the best stuff to open first!

Snuffle, sniff, sniff—ahchoo!! I found the NIP!

Mom L had to get the prezzies ready for TKS to open, but in the mean time, I think TKS got a bit distracted.

Wow!! I can’t believe Lola and Lexi let us have this paper snake toy!! Awesome!

Then TKS became even more confused in what was a prezzie and what was the stuff used to “send” the prezzies.

What a treasure. They even sent us their very best ever box!

Finally Mom L shooed TKS away so she could at least get a photo of all the nice toys Lola and Lexi sent us and Miss Dawn even sent Mom L some sweets and a cute kitty coin purse. Mom L asked me to come down and pose but I said nope, not moving. So she sorta kinda shopped me into the photo just so my readers get to see me and all our prezzies.

Check this all out. Sweet! Don’t’ya think?

Thanks tons to Lola and Lexi and Miss Dawn for being our 2017 Secret Santa Paws!


PeeEss: I sure would appreciate it if you would place the badge below on your blogs to help me help Foster Kitten Andi let her forever family know she is waiting for them to find her. I’m gonna keep her on my blog until she finds her family.
