Mommy’s gallivanting this weekend!!

My mommy has been out visiting family this weekend and here I am. At least she opens the blinds for me when she gets up!Yesterday she went visiting her brother, his wife and their three doggies. I will have to get some pictures of their doggies. All are super friendly to mommy and their momma, Edita volunteers at the Oregon Humane Society here in Portland. She is such a good human that it’s a wonder that they don’t have more than three doggies! They have their biggest doggie Colette who was a rescue from a breeder. Then they have medium sized Toby and little Benji the poodle that they rescued from a neighbor.

Mommy came home with some good homemade soup for her and a cool or maybe scary story to tell though –

Mommy and her brother Russ lost their dad early this year. As we were looking at the will and then mommy showed them my posts a doorbell rang. The three humans heard it but not the three doggies. Since when do doggies not react to the sound of a doorbell? Our angel Buddy would bark at the sound of a doorbell on the Tv. This is the really weird part though. Their doorbell hadn’t worked for like forever. Russ got up to check and then fix the doorbell and it was a totally different doorbell sound. Could it have been Grandpaw reading my blog? And they had a night recently where the TV and lights came on in the middle of the night. Grandpaw was an electrician. Was he trying to talk to them and mommy?

In other psychic/spooky news involving me! My aunty Crystal and big brother Russ are telling mommy that I start yelling for her to come home about a half hour before she gets here. Aaaanndd it doesn’t matter if she comes home at 6pm or 8pm. How do I do this? (And yes, I am a bossy girl, which sometimes goes with my calico/tortoise shell personality – and I do yell, I hardly ever meow.). But my mommy loves me just the same. I think my self assertiveness helps her be more self assertive and less quiet. Opposites attract you know. But that does not explain my psychic ability. Do you other kitties out there have this ability? If I were at Uncle Russ yesterday, would I have been able to hear that doorbell too?

Luv, Patzy

I’m not so scared anymore and it makes me happy!

This is my third try at writing this post and it just gets lost in the never where some how. Maybe it’s because I tried to add phots from shared accounts? If anyone has advice, let me know please

I am just getting used to my mommy hugging me and cuddling me in the early mornings. In fact I am so crazy about it that I am willing to wait for an hour or a little more to get my breakfast! I didn’t even know about breakfasts or cuddling before and it took a little time for me to get it. I still yell at her a bit when she picks me up but I quickly stop once I know she is loving on me and not doing anything mean.

Here I am on the bed waiting for soft caresses!love you guys! Patzy

Watching cartoons

I like watching cartoons and videos on my mommy’s ipad. I paw at the screen and try to interact with the animals placeholder://

on there. Even the cartoon drawings! Here is a video of me watching “Simon’s Cat”. Do any of you like watching videos or TV?placeholder://l

I’m not sure the video worked since i tried to link it from my phone but the picture shows clearly how much I like our short video sessions with mommy

My Halloweenie house

In playing with my new blog and in my inexperienced newbie way, I may have deleted the picture of our outside of our home from our earlier post. So here it is again. Gaaaa. I wish I would be better at this but you gotta start somewhere, right? And another view. Aunty Crystal likes to decorate to the max!And here’s me with a new toy. It’s a rug with holes that you can stick all kinds of crazy ways on top of another rug. I can climb through it, reach through it, scratch at it and it is great fun. It’s called a Ripple Rug and mommy says it is earth friendly because it is made from recycled plastic bottles. 24 of them for each rug! It doesn’t feel like plastic to me though. It just feels like a sturdy rug that I can scratch on and it is easy to clean so I can’t hurt it in any way. Yay! I really like to hide in it and reach my paws out. It would be a great play area for a pair of kitty friends to play in. Love ya, Patzy

Purrparing for Halloween

This is our house that Aunty Crystal decorated. She over decorates for every holiday and especially for this one. So my view out the living room window is lots of scary skeletons and ghosts and spiders webs. I would like the spider webs if I could go outside and catch real spiders but I can only observe (and they aren’t real any way).This is my view from the nice big living room window which mommy opens the shades every day for me. I like hanging out on the back of the recliner and watching squirrels, birdies and other animals walk by. Look at all those ghosts. And no, I am not running away from the view. MOL. I just wanted to get closer to my mommy.

.

Maybe I might get dressed up for Halloween too! My mommy has now picked me up a few times without me hollering at her. We will see if she can put a costume on me though.

Love ya, Patzy

Sad day for us today

Today is a sad day as mommy had to take our old doggie to cross the bridge. He was a good old dog, our Buddy. A kind and friendly dog to everyone, cats, peeps and other dogs. Even mommy’s pet rat she had a few years ago. She used to walk Buddy with Izzy and Pepper (both kitties who went over the bridge a while ago) and Phoenix the rat would ride on her shoulder. They got a lot of looks by neighbors. Kids thought it was cool though. The whole menagerie got along great.

I was a little afraid of Buddy at first but he just ignored me. Maybe he would have liked me better if I went for walks too but mommy says I am to be an indoor kitty. We might try a harness for walkies or maybe a stroller too so I can go outside. She’s thinking about building me a catio also next spring. That would be awesome cool.

But today we are sad that Buddy is not with us, but we are also glad he is no longer in pain. His legs and hips gave out and he couldn’t walk. This is fairly common in lab/shepherds. This is a picture of Buddy and Izzy when mommy went to Hawaii last year for 9 whole days with her mommy and her brother and his wife. She loved it there but hated the plane ride. My aunty Crystal took this picture and said they were wondering where she was and looking for her. They were great friends.

Anyway, hooray for the rainbow bridge where everyone can be free of pain and watch over those of us still here on earth. We are hoping to meet again some day.

I am a new Purrincess at my new forever home after living on the streets for my short life so far until I got caught in a trap and brought to the local animal shelter. I was so scairt! I won’t let anybody pick me up or hold me because I don’t want to feel trapped again. But I’m still super lovable! I roll on my back and like my chest and belly rubbed and will even hold hands with you. But I will slap you (without claws) if you try to pick me up.

My mommy says that can be a good thing as that means nobody can catnap me!
