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.





Monday Meowsie News: We Are Fosters!


Yep, you heard me right. Mom L and Dad P agreed to let me and TKS foster the two brothers from my blog post Part One: Snipping a Budding Cat Colony!!

Here are the two brothers, five months old, that TKS and I asked to foster. Aren’t they just darling!! Why I could simply turn them both into white kitties with my very special HHHSSSSSSSSS!

First up is Rocky “Rock Star”!

And next is Jessie “James”!

These two little cutie pies have been residing in my very special, healing and comforting palace for ONLY FOUR days, and already they have become more bonded and way more social with just about any biped that comes into their sanctuary AKA My Office!.

Yep, that’s them after their first day ever at a Petco Cat Adoption event. They hugged and groomed each other and then finally Rocky just hung his right paw around Jessie’s neck to let Jessie know “I got’chur back bro'”!

So Rocky and Jessie are living in my palace until the end of October. After that, I am not sure what else we can do to get them adopted. You see, I am not very happy with new kitties in my palace and I am not eating and starting to upchuck my food more often. And even TKS is not playing as much as she used to.

For now, I have asked Mom L if I can take a break from my blog and she agreed. I know I have been ever so absent from all my pals blogs’ comments and visits for over the last two years. So there is lots more going on for me than just the fosters. I think I have run “outta juice” so to speak. Not much more for me to share with all my few readers that is interesting. So unless I can come up with a blog content that is worthy of growing my readership, I may take a final bow, drop that mike and say “thank you” for sticking with me for my short time living in Blogville.

Hope to see you all in future.
