Good Night Sweet Prince

It is with overwhelming sadness, loss, and utter disbelief that I write this.
 My sweet lovey best friend and furry boy passed on Aug. 14 at 8:54 a.m. 
I was with him when he took his last deep breath. I thanked him for all his love, fun, and everything else, and told him it would be okay. He looked at me, and was gone.
I am lost without him, miss him so much, and think about him every hour of everyday.
I am so thankful for every single moment of laughter, friendship, bravery, loyalty, honesty, and supreme unconditional love that he gave me. It was 24 years of absolute affection between the two of us. I miss him so much. I see him everywhere, in everything.
He came to me through an open door in an apartment I was staying in. I was cocktail waitressing at the time. I would come home, exhausted, 3:00 in the morning, and throw open a screen door to cool things off. One night, a beautiful furry boy walked in the door. The rest, as they say, is history.

Tigger was the ultimate good judge of character. He always made a judgement on new acquaintances within 3 seconds, and he was ALWAYS right. People who I thought were good people---& who Tigger thought were not--were always proved to be what he thought they were, and vice versa.
He was my confidant, my defender, my knight in shining armor. He would follow us on walks, and to the hot tub. Everyone in an entire apartment complex knew who he was.
  When moved to a new house, he made it very clear who was in charge. When I tried to put a collar on him, it was found hanging from a tree branch. To show his displeasure of my boyfriend/ roommate, he definitely made his kingship known. He was the muse of many writings, the source of many a conversation, the reason to celebrate, and a gift to entertain.
   The last 12 years in my most recent home, he always ruled the roost. His vet, my friends, family and other acquaintances always knew and asked of him. He was well known in many circles, for his extreme naughtiness, and endless ability to shock you while making you laugh. He was eating turkey hot dogs and chicken up until 2 days before he died. I sincerely hope he is getting King Crab legs in heaven, as those were his favorites, as well as black olives and "Spicy Cheeze -its." (Anything spicy for that matter!)
  Thank you, sweet Tigger, for making my life infinitely better than I every could have imagined. I love you more than you will ever know sweet boy. I hope you are fat and happy and running free.
"Good night, sweet prince. May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest."

Just Thankful

Hi Everyone!
     Well Mom and I have had a scary couple of months. I'm over 24 now, (just by a little) and there were 2 different weeks, when Mom thought she was going to lose me. She just said lots of prayers, and spent lots of time with me, as she was off work.
However, I decided both times it was not my time yet! I bounced back, and although very, very fragile, wobbly, and skinny, I have been back to my howling naughty ways, & I'm still telling Georgie what I think of him. Believe me, it is not nice!
     Mom has decided to be extra thankful for every day she gets with me! (As she should be.) We have our ups and downs. She thinks I won't live forever, but we'll see :) !
     I hope this Summer finds you all happy and healthy! It is monsoon season here in the Sonoran Desert, so it is quite humid for here!
     Purrs, Hugs, and Kisses.
From, Tigger, Mom, and Georgie

April Adventures

Hello everyone! Happy Spring! Many thanks to our friends at Everycat, or as usual, you would not hear of my loveliness :) . Hope all is well with all of you! I turned 24 this month! Mom continues to be very worried about me, as I'm very, very skinny due to my hyperthyroidism and kidney disease. I'm very ornery about taking my meds, so that does not help. Mom thought she had me fooled with the "pill pockets" but I tricked her! I'd eat around the pill pockets, and actually hide the pills behind the curtains! She could not believe it,  but I did it! Every once in awhile I let her get some pills down. Anyway, all if fine here. I'm doing a great job of keeping mom up at night with my howling.
The desert is already getting warm. Georgie is still here, sigh.
We had some trouble the other night, as Mom's friend was not careful, and accidentally locked Georgie in the bedroom with me! They thought I was just doing my usual howling, but Mom figured it out pronto. The "friend" was justly punished, and luckily no one was hurt!
Mom has been keeping me supplied with lots of goodies that I SO deserve. (Rotisserie chicken, halibut, salmon, and most recently cod.) I have told her I will not eat kitty food. Why she is just now getting this, after 24 years, is beyond me, but better late than never :). Anyhoo, Mom has attached some recent pictures. Much love to you all.
Tigger, Mom, and yes, sigh, Georgie.
Happy Birthday to Me! 24 and looking FABULOUS!
 

Please Mom, let me sleep!


out cold--again

Happy New Year!


Well, it is almost a new year, and I'm still here! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope 2013 brings many wonderful surprises to us all. We had a nice Christmas here in the desert. The weather has finally gotten a little chilly, which I love...makes me and Georgie very frisky! Mom got me some king crab legs for Christmas...(yum!) as well as some new toys! Georgie got new toys too :(.
Then we both had turkey!
Anyway, hope you all are doing well. Happy New Year!
Tigger, Mom, and George!

 
Me--resting after too much crab legs!

Georgie--passed out afer playing with his toys!

Super September Sunday

Alas, our good friends at "Everycat" have persuaded mom to once again "blog." She really is the absolute worst, and if it was not for them, I would probably not be heard from again. Lots has happened in the last 3 MONTHS since she was able to fit it in to her (non-important to me) "busy schedule." 
First of all, my long-haired mats were sooo bad, mom decided to make a (very bad, in my opinion) decision. She got me shaved! The mats were quite horrible and painful, so I know she did the right thing. All my hair is growing back in beautifully, but for today, she is only allowed to show "head shots."

Here I am showing my displeasure...



Anyhoo, on top of that, "Georgie" is still here, and she is insisting on including a picture of him. Here he is "sunbathing" in MY computer room!
Unfortunately he seems to have adjusted from his formally feral life quite nicely.
Other than that, I have been busy, trying to keep Mom from getting any sleep at all. Here I am trying to do a sneak attack, just as she is falling asleep.

And Georgie is slowly learning the "ropes" as in the pictures below, he was laying on her clean laundry, and not allowing her to fold clothes. Every cat has at least one redeeming quality I guess!


Georgie "in possession" of clean laundry!
 Good news is, that after a very, very busy 12 weeks, Mom now has about 6 days off! I can't wait to harass her 24/7!
Hope you all are well! We'll be around to visit you soon!
Lots of love,
Tig, Mom, and I guess, Georgie!

Aye, Aye, Aye, it's hot!

Well, hello everybody! Here we are once again...summertime in the desert. It is supposed to be 114 degrees by next week. Luckily, we have a good air conditioning system.
All is well here...I turned 23 in April! (Mom doesn't know my exact birthday, so she made one up!) But anyway, I continue to do pretty well. I'm pretty skinny these days, but what I lack in weight, I make up for in obstinance.
Mom has been sick, so I have enjoyed sleeping with her during the day, and terrorizing her at night. 
Here's me...so annoyed to be awakened AGAIN.
Georgie also continues to do very well, (unfortunately in my opinion). He and I don't speak much but I can hear him through closed doors.  Hope all is well.
Georgie--"Hiding" behind the curtain...
Love,
Tigger, Mom, and Georgie

BAD BLOGGER!

Okay, as my friends Oliver and Gerry pointed out from "Everycat" no one has heard from me in a billion years! Guess why? 'Cause my mom is a BAD BLOGGER. As usual, I had to bite her into action!
Mom took this picture yesterday.
  Anyhoo, things are fine here in the desert. I have had my good days and bad days, but mostly good! I will be 23 this year! I continue to be very grouchy, but I still love biting mom, having treats, being mean to Georgie, and snoozing!
  Georgie, much to my dismay, is doing well also. Mom FINALLY was able to get him into the vet, but he is quite wild, so it was a traumatic day for all! The vet was not even sure they were going to take him out of the carrier! Anyway, the good news (for mom and Georgie) is that he is healthy. Vet said he is between 3 & 5 years old.
Georgie
All else is fine. It is starting to get quite warm here in the desert! Mom is thinking of taking me in, as I have many mats, and my nails are too long, but I will not let her get either of those taken care of without severely injuring her! Anyway, hope you all are doing well. I will be around to visit!
Please see video below. Mom said from the sounds of it, you'd think it was "Howl-o-ween." I told her it was close to Easter! Silly mom.
Purrs, hugs, and kitty kisses to you all.
Tigger, Georgie, and Mom

Happy Holidays!

Hello Everyone!
  Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and are enjoying a Happy Holiday season. As usual, Mom took a break from blogging, so eventually I had to bite her into action. It worked! All is fine here in the desert. We finally got the cat enclosure built outside for the thing, (Mom calls Georgie.) See picture. Georgie does not like to be out there alone. He is such a big baby, in my opinion. He gets to come in the house and run around too, but only when I'm off for a snooze. He also gets the whole upstairs! I really love coming around the corner of the glass door that separates us, and scaring him.
We had a happy Christmas this year. Mom got me crab cakes, scallops, and some shrimp. I'm licking my chops as we speak. (See picture.)
Hope all is well with all of you, and hope 2012 holds many wonderful surprises!
Happy New Year!
Love, Tig, Mom (and Georgie!)

Long time, no post

Me--lounging on the couch
Hi Everyone,
    Well, it has been over 2 months since Mom posted! Truthfully, she has no one to blame but herself. She was very sad at Whicky Wuddler going to the Bridge, and then another kitty relative of mine, Zoe, recently went too. Finally, my Grandma's mom (My mom's grandma) passed away.
Mom was very sad, and also busy with work. So..lots going on!

Georgie lounging on his comforter
 Georgie is still living with us, as mom has a crazy neighbor who thought it was really funny to sick her Rottweiler on Georgie continually. He lives upstairs, and I live downstairs. I don't like him very much at all!
Mom and I wanted to share a funny poem from a card that Mom's dad sent us. It is a kitty's point of view on life.








"Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
and sofa cushions, soft and nice!
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
and someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I'll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule...
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really
RULED BY CATS!

Happy Fall and Happy Halloween everybody!
Love, Tigger, mom (and Georgie) :)

Best Intentions...

Well...mom had good intentions to be a busy blogger over the summer, but it got away from her, with classes, etc. Now she is back at school. BUMMER.
Anyway, good news on my front. I just had to go to the V-E-T for my yearly check up. I have quite a reputation at the V-E-T, so they always prepare themselves!
Anyway, long story short--kidney values have improved. Thyroid has not improved,--gotten a tiny bit worse--but probably due to my refusal of meds. So...mom thinks she is sneaky--she has switched both kinds of meds to forms she thinks I won't know about. (pills in meatballs and pill pockets.) I humored her today, and ate both. I'll show her tomorrow! The V-E-T is always shocked at how I continue to do so well at such an "age."
 She is still taking care of the "animal" --the slightly feral kitty she calls Georgie. We have had quite a go of it, with MANY ups and downs since the weather has been so brutally hot, but Georgie to Mom's delight, and my dismay is hanging in there. Mom thinks he is quite lovely, but she knows who is still the king of her heart. (ME)
She bought a big dog crate for him, and finally talked him into sometimes coming into it at night. She & I sleep in another room, so I guess that is okay for now. I'm allowing a picture of him for a short time on this blog. I've told her she will have to delete it soon. I'm only allowing it, as other bloggers have asked to see him. Believe me, he's not nearly as handsome as me. We'll let you be the judge! (And don't answer unless you think I'm better lookin'!!!)
Okay, ta ta for now. Hope everyone is doing very well.
Love,
Tigger and Mom

Summertime!

Finally mom is off for summer vacation! She is taking some classes however, so I took it upon myself to get "ON" the computer! (computer keyboard that is.) Luckily I was able to hang my feet off of the desk to cool off a bit. It is getting verrry hot in the desert--but it is after all, June!
  I got bored with this after a bit, as it was not annoying Mom, so I chewed on her until she took me outside. (See below.) Hope all is well. Mom & I will be along shortly to visit.
Purrs and kisses to all,
Tigger!

FINALLY!

I know it has been over a month since Mom posted. I have been biting, howling, scratching, tearing, and causing general mayhem to get her to post, but she just says in a whiny voice, "I've been busy." Well, thanks to a rather spectacular chomp from me, and a gentle nudge from Whicky, she is FINALLY posting again.
  It has been a whirlwind since she last posted. First, she left me for over 12 hours, 'cause "whoop de doo" she and her friends got to go to the Ellen Show. THEN, this last weekend, she left me, her sweet baboo, for THE WEEKEND  to go to Washington State for her sister's party! How rude!
  Luckily, I have a kitty nanny, whom I adore, and who adores me. She (the kitty nanny) is always amazed, that I'm still alive, kickin' and talking up a storm!
  I am doing fine...still on both my meds, and stirring up trouble whenever things get a little too quiet. Oh, who am I kidding, I'm stirring up trouble whether things are quiet or not.
  The ragdoll named Georgie is still hanging around, and much to my dismay, mom is still taking care of it. Mom says he is very sweet. I think he is a very, very bad thing.
Anyway, Mom says school is out in about 4 weeks. She "plans" to do more blogging when that is over. She will come visit more then.
Soon I will have to type my adventures...as I can't rely on my mom to keep you all updated :(.
Hope everyone is healthy, happy, and enjoying some good kitty naps, sunshine, and the more than occasional naughtiness!
Much love,
Tigger (and mom)

Grandma's Visit

Hi Everyone!
   Grandma came and visited during the last week.
Mom and I were very sad to see her go, but I had a lovely time with her.
Here she is giving me a smooch, and secretly trying to cut mats out of my loooong hair.
I was very sad after Grandma left, so I tried to take a nap behind the curtain, but Mom found me.
I will try and get around to see everyone this weekend. I blame it on Mom. Hope you all are doing well!
Lots of Love,
Tigger and Mom

Marvelous Monday

Hi Everyone,
   I'm so excited, 'cause mom had today off. I forgot it was President's Day. I hate to admit it, but I like having her here. She's fun to snuggle with on the couch. I'm a tiny bit annoyed with her, as she's still taking care of that stray kitty. She can't get over how beautiful he is. (growl!)
Anyway, hope you all are well.
Tigger
(PS-Mom says she already knows how beautiful I AM.)
(PSS-The Grandma is coming in 24 days!)

Happy VERY LATE New Year Everyone!

Hope you all are doing well, this fine 2011! (here I am pouting in the bathroom cabinet, after I  had to open the door!)
Mom has been slacking...or for better terms--she has been taking care of another cat! I have been her prince for over 20 years, and what do you know, a stray, and yes I must admit, very large, beautiful Siamese mix has been hanging around, and weaseling his way into her heart! (I have forbidden her to post his picture on MY blog.) (she says, "yet...")
 I WILL HAVE NONE OF IT! I still have my say, so I have been making it very LOUD and clear that he is not allowed in the house, nor anywhere near me! Mom has been letting him live in the garage, but soon it will be too hot for that. She is praying I will accept him, but I keep telling her--good luck with that!
  Mom is hoping for advice...I say DO NOT GIVE HER ANY MERCY.
Wishing you all a Happy January, and a wonderful 2011 (if a little late.)
Tigger (and mom)

Feliz Navidad Amigos

Happy Holidays Everyone! Mom was trying very hard to annoy me, with my Taco Bell Chihuahua and my Santa hat, so I had no choice but to stick my tongue out at her.
Then, she wanted me to wish you all a "Meowy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Please see video.

Hope you all are safe, happy, and warm this holiday season.

Sunny Sunday

Well, hello everyone. It was a lovely day here in the desert...80 degrees! Mom finally let me out to snooze in the backyard. (She's been worried for a few days, 'cause I was not eating or drinking...But I came back last night, about 1:35 am! )

anyway...I was trying to snooze in the backyard, but she kept snapping the stupid camera.

After this big yawn, I finally got a short nap in. Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season.
Lots of love,
Tigger!

Hello and Thank you

Hi Everyone,
  Hope you all are doing well. Mom is posting some old pics of me that the Grandma brought down. I used to love to lay in the laundry basket, and...STILL love to destroy window blinds...especially if I'm not getting my way!
  I hope you all are doing well. Mom needs to send out a big THANK YOU to "Amy and the House of Cats" and anyone else who suggested these...but she finally tried the "pill pockets" and they have done wonders for me taking my kidney medicine. Mom thanks you, thanks you, thanks you!
 And I, being the suave kitty that I am, thank you, because I'm feeling gooood! This has allowed me to be ESPECIALLY naughty and destructive at night! I just love it!
  Hope you all are having a Happy Fall.
Purrs to you, and the frequent love bite,
Tigger

Happy Tuesday and Happy Early Halloween!

Hello Everyone, (Mom awoke me from my early, early morning nap to write this one!)
    I thought Mom was going to stop blogging...she hasn't done it in so long. But thank goodness for a gentle nudge from Whicky, (both Mom and I have a thing for him) or the world might never hear of my greatness again!
   Anyway, I had a lovely time with the grandma. She has since gone back to her own state, and I'm stuck here in the desert.
    However, it has gotten much nicer lately, even nice enough one day for me to go in the Jeep and hide out! I love to sleep in there, as I've mentioned previously.
  I've been feeling fine lately, and have been doing well taking my thyroid meds, but still being quite naughty with the kidney pills. Mom needs to find a better way and soon!
  Hope you all are doing well. Mom is going to take a day off work soon, just to catch up with everyone's lives.
   Many purrs and the occasionally love bite to you all.
Happy Halloween!

The Grandma is coming!

First of all, mom sends her apologies for not getting around to see everyone. Work, and life have been CRAZY, and very, very busy!
However, I made her write a quick note tonight, as the Grandma comes tomorrow! I'm so excited!
Mom has included an old picture of the grandma and me. You can see in it, I am giving her a hug!
Hope everyone is doing well. Mom hopes to catch up with everybody soon!
Lots of love to everyone,
Tigger

Lazy Sunday

Well Mom spent a lot of the day doing school stuff and watching football. She did take time out to change the sheets, however. That is one of my FAVORITE pastimes! (See pics.)
I just couldn't help myself...had to hide and play underneath...
This is just so fun!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I'm back!

video
Thanks again to everyone for the support. The kitties on the web, and the people they choose to honor with their kitty presence, are just so great. We did get the bloodtests back...thyroid is down, but kidney is up. That is some good news,& some bad news. But it is partially due to the fact that I was convincing mom I was taking the Benazipril (kidney helping medicine) when in fact, I was hiding them in my mouth. Mom didn't find this out until she found a pile of the little white pills behind the curtain, where I was hiding them. (Crazy, but true.)Darn! So now she has started crushing it and putting it into my food. I'll have to find a way to get back at her. For now, however, she is forgiven, as she brought home a King Crab leg for me tonight, and I have to say, yum,yum,yum! Not supposed to have that much protein, but every once in awhile, an old guy's gotta have a little fun. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It's back to work for mom tomorrow, so I should at least be able to get a decent nap. (here's just a silly little video of me exploring my garden.)
Lotsa love,
Tigger

Sublime Saturday

Hi Everyone,
    Mom first wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words. She gets so weepy, it is embarrassing, but she & I do thank you for all the purrs and good thoughts--it was quite unexpected and overwhelming, in the best of ways.
   It has been mostly a good day.  Earlier in the day, mom took me to the v-e-t, for a blood test. I did manage to get in a few kitty swear words to those trying to take the blood, but unfortunately they did not understand. Don't know the results of the blood test yet...but as a kitty, I always think positive, and as one my mom's favorite author's says, kitties are always in the "present." So, at this present moment life is good. There is a lovely monsoon thunderstorm rolling through the desert tonight. I'm one of those weird kitties that loves wind. I think I was "Super Kitty" in my last life. Just need a cape, with an "SK".    Hope you all are doing well, and thanks again.

Livin' Large

Okay, so mom has had a ton going on...new school year...tough start...30 kids...but the main reason she wasn't writing was-- she took me to the vet as I was howling, and not doing very well. 
Granted, I'm over 20, and she knew the news couldn't be good....and it was not good.   The vet told mom I have serious thyroid and kidney problems. So I have started on chicken flavored meds twice/day. Mom didn't want her remaining memories of me to be sad ones, so she was not going to write about all of that, but the mom's dad, convinced her once again to write about the most interesting thing in her life, ME :). Thank God for her Dad. Anyhoo, I have been faithfully (somewhat) taking my meds, and mom has noticed a marked improvement. I go in for bloodtests again in about a week, and mom is encouraged, as I have been much more back to my old grouchy self. We all know our old bodies can't live forever, but old souls like ours will go on an on! Much love to you all.

How Mom & I met...and a brief history

About 19 years ago, when I was already over 3 years old, Mom was working in a bar--yes, a bar, bar tending. (That was before she became an old school teacher!) She would get home around 3 am. She lived in a lovely apartment, overlooking a small lake. When it was cool, she would leave her sliding door open, for a fresh breeze. Well one night after work, when she was particularly tired, she happened to leave the sliding door open when she went to bed...
..As a young, curious, bachelor kitty about town, I could not help myself. I wandered into her open screen door. She was in a water bed, and falling asleep, wiggling her foot. Now as many of you kitties know, some of us cannot resist attacking wiggly things under blankets...so of course I had to pounce on the wiggling foot!
...Mom screamed herself awake, trying to figure out what was attacking her foot, and wondering how did it get in her bed??? (She was lucky it was only me, and not a raccoon, or a skunk!) Anyway, she laughed out loud, and said, "I was the cutest thing she had ever seen," and of course I did not argue.
The rest as they say...is history.
The funniest parts are, there were 6 people in the apartment complex, who all thought I belonged to them. They would eventually find out the truth after watching me and talking to each other...that I would stop by each of my so called "owners" for a bite to eat, a snooze, and the occasional lovin's. I had them all going for quite a while...
 There was actually a British lady who was really my first mom in the apartment complex, and she pronounced my name "Tigga." She had to move back to England, though, so I decided on my current Mom, as at the TIME she was quite a night owl, and provided lots of good eats, and entertainment.
   Now we've kind of grown old together. We have had many laughs, adventures, and priceless experiences together. She loves me very, very much, and she knows how very special I am. I have been her best buddy for just about ever! Of course, I have aged better than she, and I'm obviously still much more fun and better looking. Over the years I have saved her from many a bad person. (I used to bite the heads off of any roses her latest and not so greatest boyfriend would bring her. ) She's not a bad momma, however, I find I still have to train her daily. Hope you enjoyed our brief history. Have a great day!

Happy 4th of July!

...or just Happy Weekend, if you don't celebrate it.
Mom finally let me out of jail, I mean the house, under close supervision today. I like to go out in the front yard, 'cause there's more freedom, but Mom won't let me go alone, due to cars, my age, dogs,-- blah, blah, blah. I think she just uses it as her "control." So, I'll let her think that. She wanted to thank all of you who took the time to reply and help with the blog. She appreciates it very much. She's still working on the brief version of how we met. It'll be coming soon.
So here I am next to what my mom thinks is a "Desert Spoon" plant. (She's not totally sure.) I just like it 'cause it is really sharp and spiky, and feels good to scratch against. It is also especially fun to crawl under, as Mom can't get me without severely injuring herself. (hee, hee, hee.)
Hope you all have a GREAT rest of your weekend. 
Adios,
Tigger

Help Wanted

Well, it is hot, hot, hot, here in the desert today...too hot to go outside. About 113 degrees. Mom will only let me out for about 5 minutes at a time...since she thinks I'm old and fragile. (yeah, right.)
Anyhoo--I was thinking she could probably use some help with MY blog. I made her start writing in January of this year. She was completely new and naive to the world of blogging, and let's be honest...quite clueless. We just wanted to start writing about me, as I'm so funny and handsome.
 She (and I) had NO idea about the world of cat blogs, the cat blogosphere, etc. Thanks to some very nice people, (like Whicky Wuddler--where is he anyway?) and several others of you, we have managed to hobble along in our endeavors. Mom would like any other help/advice you have to offer. Like, when she sees something really wonderful (like a banner, etc.) is she allowed to copy and paste that to her blog? (Like the banner "Blogging without Obligation." She LOVES that one.) And where does she get banners, or how do I become a "Floof and Fur" member, etc?
There seems to be a whole etiquette/vocabulary out there and we really don't want to step on any paws...so if someone could fill in the helpless human, that'd be great...(like the Mancat Mondays, Wordless Wednesdays, etc.)
Maybe there's a kitty blogging manual out there, that someone can send my way?
Hope you all are having a terrific, and hopefully much cooler Monday than we are in AZ.
Adios,
Tigger

Kitty Faux Paw

Well, Happy Friday everyone! Mom is out of school for about another month, so like it or not, she has more time on her hands. Unfortunately, she has been spending some of it taking pictures of me...
So, I don't like to admit this, as it is a little embarrassing from a kitty's point of view...but I like water--when I am in control of it, and when I think Mom isn't watching. I like puddles, sprinklers, etc. Weird, I know, but I never claimed to be normal. Anyway, I'm usually very careful to make sure Mom can't catch me in the act of getting in the water, but this time she caught me...on camera!
Then, I was trying to make her think I had disappeared. Kind of like hide-and-seek, only with a very demented kitty's mindset. So I thought I was hidden behind the curtain, and curses! I was foiled again! My big tail gave me away. Guess I'll just have to go snuggle with her on the couch! She wins...
Have a greeaaat weekend!
Adios,
Tigger
