Today is My Gotcha Day

Kitties, Woofies, today is my Gotcha Day.  The best day of my life.  Mom is so happy Admiral chose me for her after she, Admiral, left for the Bridge and saw that mom was so bereft.  She knew Mom needed a fur baby to love.

Here is the Admiral's own announcement she made in her bloggie, straight from the Rainbow Bridge about me...Katie!  If you would like to read that first bloggie about me, Katie, here it is.  (Admiral's own bloggie before I had my own blog).    https://admiral-hestorb.blogspot.com/2012/01/sound-bosuns-pipe-ahoy.html

Mommy and I are both celebrating because we have been a happy twosome since I met her at the v-e-t's office.  When the tech brought me out to see Mom before inviting her back to the cages where all five of my fur companions were housed with me, so that they too could be seen by her as well;  I gave her so many biscuits before she went to that room where the other babies were--- and some of the biscuits were air biscuits, when I couldn't make contact with her body, that all six v-e-t's all stopped to watch me with her and they were smiling. I crawled up under her shirt and disappeared while purring hard enough to shiver the timbers of the building.  She knew I had to be the one for her, but she went to meet the others as well anyway.  I did not want to be taken from her and put back in that cage so I cried as the tech let the others out one by one.  There was a Tortie there...the total image of Admiral.  Too heartbreaking Mommy said, as the personality of course, would be different and looking like Admiral would make mom have expectations that would not be fair to a new family member.

Even though only five weeks had passed since she lost the Admiral , mommy couldn't get me out of her mind along with my demonstration of love.  So she came back.  And here I have lived happy and content and loved ever after.  Admiral chose me for her and showed it in several ways which she and I spoke of  to one another back then.

I am happy to be here...to have each of you as my friend.  I am so glad to be here with you, my fur family.

With love, from her Admiral...

She gave her... me.

What I Did Yesterday

Kitties, Yesterday I had had my breakfast, and I was in my room here with mommy while she looked at her email and stuffs.  She kept hearing this scraping-like sound and finally after a few minutes, turned quietly to see what I was doing.

Kitties, several years ago, mom saw me using my big red heart as a washrag.  I held it in my hands, licked it and then rubbed it on my cheeks and head.  Yesterday, I was holding my Yoweee Christmas tree catnip stuffed toy and using it as a wash rag!  It was me wetting the tree that mommy had heard.  She sat turned looking at me, transfixed at the sight of me washing away.  I used my Tree washrag for a good several minutes.  Not seconds. Mom knew if she got up to get the phone...I would have quit then and there.

By the way, I am in on mom's bed...transmitting this through telepathic waves to her and making her type it.  Here I am...closed up so you can see my eyes are completely closed.  I never stirred one bit. I didn't move to twitch.  I trust mom.

Here I am...lotta bed shots this month but I'll let up on them.  Trying to entrance Kozmo!

Oh KOZMO.........

Lotsa room for another...a new swain perhaps?

How I Do It

Kitties, I got it down right.  Its a no fail deal.  What?  Ruling the household.  How?  Easy.

You hafta be a kitty and you hafta be soft.  We are like--- the softest silkiest rulers in the world.  No one else compares.  So, you gotta be soft.  Then, you begin sleeping on or next to your mom or dad's head.  Purr loudly while you're there.  The combination of your soothing warmth, your beyond compare softness and the purring I just mentioned...they drop off to sleep like they're falling off a cliff! They say its annoying at first, poor things, and sometimes they will make feeble efforts to pull away or even more disturbing...trying to push US away.  However, persist.  Name of the game.  Just walk softly on up t their heads and settle.  As soon as they feel that incredible warm softness against their face...you're in like Flynn.  You have your personal heated pillow!  Them.  You will always have it.  No one can take it away.  No other pillow can scratch your head for you...pet you..provide warmth, whisper to you and give you smoochies on your head and cheekies

Last night I took it to the next level.  I was pointed downward, all slung out with my nose and my face right at/in her ear.  She felt (and smelt) my perfect breath and my whiskers.  And my snoring.  But first... the purring plus my heartbeat was an added attraction.  She started complaining again but that hushed as she fell asleep anyway.

She woke at 3 with my face in her ear; my arms straight down across her face diagonally, and my feets rammed into her throat.  Yup.  Now she did move my feets.  I'll have to train her on that.

Just sayin'...that's how you do it.

Mt. Kathryn Isabella and Black Waterfall

Kitties, I present a study in grace and fortitude.  Mt. Kathryn Isabella and the mountain's famous black furred waterfall...known for its dynamic dimensions the world over!

This is not a repeat of the famed landmark.  It is a fresh capture here on this fine morning as  explorers are wandering about hoping for a sighting.  The Mom happened upon this exciting scene as she explored the reaches of the preserve.  There it was...the formerly insurrmountable pinnacle but now, obtainable by hard work.

My Winter Day

Kitties, here I am in bed not 15 minutes ago.  And here are the little totes & backpack and stuffs momma is taking with her on her trip over the mountains when she is told all is ready for her to leave and get there.  I don't like seeing them as she puts things in, because I know it means she will be gone soon.  She said it's a memorial service.

I oughtta hork in them ALL! 

Look what I put in our bed last night.  That's DONKEY and Floppy Mousey.  I hope that persuades her to stay and not leave me.  There are others for her where those came from.  I'll bring them ALL!

DONKEY is here and Floppy Mousie.  How can she LEAVE?

 And lastly, here I am...on her side of the bed.  I want her to know I will stay here the entire time she's gone except when Tiffany feeds me.  I have been here several hours while she gallivanted through the stores.

Poor me.  NO mommy to keep me warms, soon.

What a Week

Kitties, I had other favorite brovver here for a week.  He went home yesterday.  Regular favorite brovver will be here today until tomorrow.  I haven't seen much of him except Christmas day.  The third favorite brovver lives near by but has a family so he doesn't stay.

Mommy will be going over the mountains when she gets word that she needs to.  She has my Vet tech lined up to take care of me while she's gone.  I'm going to be sad but she keeps saying that a little separation is good for me. What's up with THAT!?

OH!  This isn't a good picture I know but mom didn't want to get closer and make me move from the window but here I am on the lookout for her yesterday.  See my mustache? She saw this in the driveway.

And here I am, holding my paws to the "fire".  A kitty does what she has to do, ya know? I was colder'n ice-cream even though the thermostat was at 72.

Mom said she knows the pictures look bad, as if *I* took them.  (as if!)

Look what she  got for Christmas and has mounted on the wall now. It's in MY room which is the room of cats.

The big one is new.  That wire you see hanging is a wall through for HAM radio.

More of us kitty family and a Kingfisher to the left..lunch!

Boxing Day, (does that mean I get a new BOX???)

Kitties, here I am on a play mat that one of my three favorite human brovvers got me.  It crinkles with sound, and has several things I can play with on it AND a birdy design too.

and my 3 fur broffurs in the Windy Kitty, Ill-Annoy, sent me a proper HUGE (for filling it up for ME), stocking.  Look!

I got other things too but these are especially impawtent to me like treats and mice are impawtent to me.

Happy Boxing Day Kitties and Happy Day after Christmas!
