Ahhh….another week begins. Actually the only day of the week I “know” is Sunday and that’s because one of my parents brings the Sunday newspaper inside and I get to play with various parts of it while they read the rest. All the rest of the days are pretty much the “same old, same old”…….
But that’s another story……I was looking at some of my old baby pictures and realized that I used to be pretty darn small. This old photo of me in Dad’s arms was taken after I’d lived with them for a few weeks – nobody could say for sure how old I was at the shelter but I was a lot smaller than this! We cats can grow FAST! I really don’t remember much about how I got to the shelter to tell you the truth. They told my parents that I was “found” under an old house. All I know is I was one lucky kitten to have been at the shelter the day Mom and Dad came in because they adopted me and I’ve been spoiled rotten ever since.
I know that I’m not THAT big of a cat really – Mom had a good friend that had two cats that each weighed 25 lbs. and there are LOTS of people who have big cats like that – or even bigger! Mom says I eat like a little piggy but imagine how much food those BIG cats eat……wow……If I wasn’t so picky about my food who knows how much I might weigh. YIKES
I already know today is going to be the day I have to get my nails trimmed. It’s quite a project, thanks to me and my squirming! Daddy holds me (haha) and Mom trims my nails. The hardest part is my extra toes on my front paws (so she says). I usually try to stay very still but not TOO still – I want to make it a bit of a challenge for them. Tee Hee….yeah, I’m a little devil alright! 🙂
I guess I’d better go now – if I’m not mistaken (and I never am) Mom’s got the pantry door open where my food is…..I need to get down there and get in position to give a “thumbs up” approval or a “thumbs down” rejection of whatever she puts in my dish. I like to keep her on her toes – – – I change my mind frequently – – – what was yummy one day, might be icky the next.
Life is good……..I hope BREAKFAST is too!!!
