A Detente in My Castle


My first question, how many  times a week do you guys have a detente in your multiple animal castle? As for me, I have to have this ‘detente’ situation more than I want with TKS.

Today’s detente started with unmade bed. Mom L wanting a ‘cat nap’

As you can see, I was definitely Queen of the King size bed. TKS was not happy to be on the floor level stuck on the tossed aside electric blankie.  Purrsonally, I say phhfftt to her disappointment!

I am Queen of this King size bed. Tuff luck TKS

TKS was less than pleased, but then as I said before, that is her “tuff luck”!

Why can’ t I come up and join you Savvy?

Ok, ok, I know she has cute golden eyes and such a sweet face. BUT—I was HERE first!!

Ok kid, I get it that you wanna be “me”—not happening!

Finally TKS made the right move and chose to settle in elsewhere.

I have no choice. I must hold my ground and remain in the master bedroom!

You know this is her fall back position, right??

I am near the master bed, and no one can see me

Then Mom L arrived with her special blankie, spread it on the unmade bed. Guess who took advantage as fast as a house panther can be??

Sweet !! Now I am ON THE TOP!!

What can I say—I held my ground and let TKS have her day as the Top Cat!

I WON!!!

Do you ever have a detente moment in your multiple animal castle??? Let me know how you handle it in comments. I sure could use some advice!!




Do You Luv Sun Puddles Like Me?


I am hav’in a heck of a time keeping up with my travelin’ sun puddles. How about you? Are you in luv with your sun puddles like me? I’d go just about anywhere just to get a good sun puddle nap. Our last rental home hardly had sun puddles at all. But by golly I found this one, remember? And I had to climb through Mom L’s computer cables and then behind our printer stand to get this little spot of sun that shined on a narrow window sill for about an hour in the Spring and Summer.


Now I have so many easy peasey places to have sun puddle naps, but I am chasin’ around the house as Miss Sun moves about in the sky with the seasons. I’ve even been known to get to my sun puddle spot BEFORE Miss Sun gets there!

Nope, the sun hasn’t shown up just yet, but she will

Once she shows up, Nanuk and I have a wonderful time basking in the glory of her warmth.

ahhhh—this is the life, right Nanuk?

But like always, somebody always shows up to disturb our hours of bliss.

Who invited you? There is only enough room here for us.

Sometimes I like to just stretch out so’s my whole body gets the heat treatment.

Top half first, then I’ll flip to get the bottom half.

Other times I like to let Miss Sun know how much I am enjoying her and I kind’a wave at her to let her.

Hey Miss Sun!! Can you see me? Do you know I luv you?

Again, somebody has to show up and intrude on my joyful greetings.

Not you again! How many times do I have to say “move on”??

And of course, I have now found Miss Sun is shining her lovely warm heat on the day bed in Dad P’s office. So I am now claiming that spot all for myself.


Now you tell me, are you chasing sun puddles with this new time adjustment and whatnot? Miss Sun sure does make it a challenge when she starts reacting all crazy like with the changes in the seasons too.


My Phenomenal Progress!


I have important news about my recent progress

I know I may appear to be a bit grumpy in the photo, but rest easy, I am actually very excited. But you see Mom L caught me just settling in for my afternoon nap on this wonderful vintage quilt she carefully folded in hopes I would not find it a comfy bed.

HAH!! Wrong was she!!! That sun puddle had my name on it and the quilt was folded to a size that matched my gray furs and full figure purrfectly. I agreed to chat with her about the title I wanted for this blog post and I approved her edits to my two AMAZING videos which prove that I have just recently made incredible, phenomenal progress is my recovery from early trauma—before I found my perfect castle and family of course.

I need sunglasses!!

Ugh! Mom L kept on talking to the point I began to think I needed to get some sunglasses!! Why she couldn’t just wait until later I have no idea.

So about my amazing progress report! Mom L and Dad P went away to the mountains for a whole week. They looked and looked for new pet sitters for me because my new one was getting married. She didn’t seem to want to come stay with me and TKS—something about wanting to go with her new husband on some stoopid honeymoon! Whatever!!

So I TKS we actually required two pet sitters to cover a one week period. They are both registered vet techs and they split up the week. They are very much sought after as you can imagine.

So the second day with us, the first pet sitter, Miss Kat (no pun, none whatsoever!) was off work and stayed home to get to know us. She recognized my invitation to approach me instantly!! I was on my beloved stairs and asking for attention and play!!

And if THAT isn’t enough to shock your socks, check out this next video where I actually talk to her a couple of times and I PURRED out loud for her!! TURN YOUR SOUND UP LOUD so’s you can hear me give her a couple of meows and lots of purrs toward the last ten to fifteen seconds.

Don’t you think this is remarkable progress for me!! I really liked Miss Kat and hope she can come back. Mom L got a bit teary eyed to see me open up so much to a stranger. Guess Miss Kat must know some cat language, right?
