How do you use your television?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

The question for my Monday post is all about sharing how we all interact with our human’s televisions. Of course I am assuming you 1) live with a human who has a TV and 2) that you care one whiff about said TV!

Starting with TKS.

I can see everything in the living room from here! Sweet!

Of course it never crosses TKS’ mind that NO ONE who is attempting to watch that TV can see through her! This is a new sitting post for TKS and it is driving Mom L mad!! Too funny!!! MOL!

I am NOT a copy cat!! I like it up here!

And there you have it. Katie aka KK has decided to try out TKS’ approach for surveying the room from wherever the humans place their TV.  However, KK chose to take the TV perch on in our bedroom.

Zzzzz…*snort*…zzzzz

As for me, I choose to take my TV time in stride. And nap. What in Ceiling Cat’s name does a human TV have to offer us cats!!

Pretty cute, aren’t they?

And I now that Mom L just luvluvluv’s to see my little pink toe pads when I snooze next to her on our couch while she watches her sill human TV.

So come on my pals, share with me how you use your humans’ television??

Old is made new again!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Have you ever had one of your favorite old play things, now a bit dirty and dingy, made new again? Well, I never thought it could be done, but Mom L did it!

Boy oh boy!! I can bunny kick this!

That is a photo of me in 2012 when I first received my Nip N’Nap mat from a pal of Mom L’s. It was filled with the nip, which I didn’t know I liked at the time, and I took to that mat like crazy!!

I still like nothing better than having my peacock fevver pulled under that mat so’s I can jump on it and dead it! Just check out how serious I am in that photo above—see my whiskers are all pulled forward so’s to give me the best intel on what that fevver is gonna do.

So you know I luvluvluv my Nip mat. It also became a nice place to take a nap, so we call it my our Nip N’ Nap mat.

It has been refilled many times with new nip. But Mom L finally decided that it needed to be brought back to life with a good bath!!

You got it right!! She darn near deaded BOTH our Nip N’ Nap mats by putting them through the washing machine!

I guess is turned out OK, because for TKS, that first Nip N’ Nap mat of mine was like it was reborn and all new again.

*sniff, sniff*—hmmm—this smells different?

TKS gave the New “old” Nip N’ Nap mat a real workout!

I can roll on it like the old mat and get the nip smell on my furs

TKS wasn’t sure if this mat ‘reborn’ mat was gonna be fun like it was before its bath.

Ok, ok— I can bunny kick it and get my nip to smell even more

So far, so good.

Wait a minute?! Is this a set up? To get me to make it fall apart?

Suspicious as always!

umm—maybe I outta let Savvy or KK do this first

And TKS’ gung ho nature took over and she took that Nip N’ Nap reborn mat for a ride across the living room floor!!

Who cares! I’m takin’ this baby for spin across the floor!!!

Typical TKS!!

Let me know if you like your play things made new again—we sure have enjoyed our “old” ‘New” Nip N’ Nap mats!

Nursing duty is not easy

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I told you that Mom L has talking walking new-moan-yah, right?

Well that means I have become her Primary Caretaker of course, so I must spend most of my day and night with her in case she wants something. But I do have to call in the back-up nursing staff when I need a litter box break or a snack or just to stretch my legs.

But I gotta tell you, my back up nursing staff needs to get some refresher lessons on proper Mom L care taking. Why just look at how KK decided to pull her first shift!

Napping while on nurse duty!!

I just could not believe my eyes when I came back to find her snoozing away in a sun puddle in the cat tower that overlooks our bed where Mom L is recovering. And believe you me KK was sound asleep!

ZZZZZZZZZZZ

Well I sorted her out straight away and next shift she pulled she did so properly.

Nice tight snuggle next to Mom L

She faced Mom L and was snuggled as tightly as she could get to her leg so KK would know the instant Mom L needed anything.

As for TKS, she has has many years under my paw for nurse training and she has been pulling her shifts in a pretty responsible manner.

Good form, tight snuggle

Here she is snuggled tight against Mom L, but unfortunately she had her back to Mom L so’s no way would she wakey up if she couldn’t feel Mom L move. I almost dinged TKS for not facing Mom L like I trained her, but then I moved around to check out just how asleep TKS was. I was gonna give her a fright for not facing Mom L.

Never sleep on nurse duty

But I was caught by TKS who was in no way napping on her nurse shift! She was keeping a close watch for any movement from Mom L.

So as you can see, it isn’t easy being on round the clock nurse duty. I mostly pull the all nighter’s and stick with Mom L from dark until morning. But it sure does help having back up nursing staff. I just need to get KK back into some more training to make sure she stays consistent.

How do you handle your nursing duties when you are called upon?
