(We keep working on it, but Ramses is still having trouble hitting that “n” key. – MK)
SHE tells me I’m a “world traveler”. Mot sure what that meams, but soom after we celebrated my first birthday I was om my way to amother home – this time with HER beside me!
I was loaded imto my mice comfy carrier (with soft blamkie amd favorite toy) amd away we wemt. It seemed like FOREVER, but this car ride didm’t scare me at all because I could hear amd smell HER. I was right up fromt at HER feet. I kept hearimg amother voice besides HERS but I wasm’t afraid. Every mow amd them SHE would opem the top to pet amd reassure me.
After FOREVER we arrived im “Samta Clara”. Mext thimg I kmow I’m beimg let out of the carrier imto a stramge room. But there’s my cat box! Amd my food bowl filled with my favorite food! SHE has disappeared but I cam hear HER voice somewhere im the house so I’m mot scared. Well, maybe just a little…
I started exploring this mew area. There was mot much im it except a bed amd a LARGE WIMDOW! SHE had placed my scratchimg post right umder it so I wasted mo time hoppimg up to see what I could see. The other room (called a “bathroom”) was where SHE put my bowls amd cat box. Mot much to see there, so I just humg out amd waited for HER to come back. After FOREVER SHE did amd we started gettimg ready for bed. Whew! What a day. I was pooped but glad I was still Forever home.
The mext mormimg we got up amd wemt to “the bathroom”. I say we because SHE wemt im there amd I didm’t wamt to let HER out of my sight. There’s this big white bowl thimgie filled with water that whirls aroumd amd aroumd every time SHE gets mear it. I’d mever seem such a thimg! SHE keeps puttimg the top dowm, though, so I cam omly see the water go ‘roumd whem SHE is there. Im that same room there’s AMOTHER large white bowl thimgie – much bigger tham the other ome. (SHE called it “bathtub”) SHE pulls om somethimg stickimg out of the wall amd water starts comimg out of it imto bathtub. A LOT OF WATER. I’d mever seem amythimg like this either! Them SHE got im the water. I didm’t wamt to joim HER, but I sure didm’t mimd keepimg HER compamy so I sat om the edge of bathtub amd watched HER. It was fum watchimg the water swirl out of site omce SHE got out of bathtub. (I thimk these are magic tricks SHE does just to keep me emtertaimed. PURRRRRRR)
Although SHE comes amd goes, I’m mot allowed to leave our rooms because SHE has to “kitty-proof” the place (I’m mot sure what that meams). But I have all my toys to play with amd that BIG WIMDOW to look out of. There’s a tree right outside the BIG WIMDOW so I get to see a lot of birds (amd these small furry amimals SHE calls “squirrels”) up close. Amd I met this other persom who lives with us. SHE calls him “Tim” or “Umcle Tim”. Sometimes he comes imto our rooms to say hi. Them ome day SHE locks me im the bathroom amd the mext thimg I kmow there’s all kimds of moise amd voices amd I have mo idea what is happemimg. After FOREVER I’m fimally let out of the bathroom where I see familiar items (“furmiture”) im the bedroom. Yippie! More thimgs to climb om. I’m dowm with that!
After FOREVER I’m fimally allowed to explore the rest of the house. (Good thimg, too, ’cause I was goimg stir-crazy.)
Umcle Tim’s bedroom is across from ours amd them there are “stairs” which take you dowm to amother huge space. Wow! Ome room has a wimdow that goes from floor to ceilimg (practically) amd almost takes up ome wall. I’m mot allowed to go “outside” imto the “backyard”. (Just wait, I’ll get there…) Amother room has a big wimdow like the ome im our rooms. Look – it’s the same tree I see from our wimdow.
I LOVE racimg up amd dowm the stairs!
Umcle Tim lets me humt for socks im his bedroom amd evem brought home a mew scratchimg post for me (Score!).
I have two humams who dote om me (Well, SHE dotes amd he plays with me.), all the food amd treats I wamt, loads of toys to play with – evem omes that I’m mot supposed to play with (hee hee) – amd A Room With A View. At might I smuggle im bed with HER. Actually I curl up om the pillow mext to HERS, but im the mormimg I smeak umder the covers to cuddle up mext to HER. Omce SHE is up amd the door is opemed I’m off for amother advemturous day im my Forever home. Life IS Good.
