Today my person spilled a new container of laundry detergent. He knocked it down our basement steps. The soap went on all the steps and made a big puddle at the bottom. Before my other person could stop me, I ran down all the slippery steps as fast as I could, which was much faster than usual. At the bottom I slid and crashed into the wall. But I was OK! So then I walked around in the basement for a while. I had soap on all my paws and my leg. Basement dirt and a cobweb stuck to the soap and my fur. My person tried to wipe me off but it didn't work. So she rinsed off my back paws in the kitchen sink. She put my feet right under the running faucet! I hated that a lot. Finally I dried off. Here's a picture of my wet soapy leg.

I took a few naps, and now I'm relaxing on the couch.

Easy like Sunday...

After battling with my person over the pillows last night, I decided to take it easy today. I sat with both my people on the couch all day, and only got up to eat my supper and briefly play String. My person told me I was even snoring for a while.

I'm in a box and my head smells like perfume

That's all really. My person can't figure out why my head and neck and ears smell like sandalwood perfume.

At last!

My person finally bought me a new scratching post. She had to specially order it because I have unique taste. I have two already, but I scratched all the good parts of my favorite one. And I don't like the other one, so I was temporarily using her office chair. This new one had tan carpet, my favorite. It is also tall, like me.

In other news, there were big puddles of water in the basement today. While my person was cleaning, I splashed around. There were a lot of dead bugs floating in the water, which I liked.

Neighborhood Watch

Here I am spying on the neighborhood, especially the chipmunks. I don't think they can see me because I'm all stealthy...

My trip to the Hospital

Eating all that corn might have had some consequences. Or it might have been the giant bug I ate one night. Anyway, I got sick and had to go the emergency vet. At first, the vet said I had to have an operation to remove an "obstruction." But then they did more tests and decided I did not have to have an operation, but I did have to stay in the hospital for three nights, which I hated. I even had to have an IV. When my people came to see me during Visiting Hours, I was M-A-D. I also gave the people there a hard time. The two doctors were OK though, and one said I was a "delight." The other one said that he "liked the looks" of me.

Here is my IV spot, and here I am recovering. My person said I had "poodle arms." I am not allowed to eat corn anymore.

Corn fiend

I finally got some corn! I ate the husks right out of the garbage can.

I like to lounge with the rotary saw

If my other person needs any help with a project, I'll be ready. I like to stay close to the tools.

Too hot, even for me

I am one hot cat. I spend my days trying to stay cool in new spots. Here I am in the bathroom window, where it's shady.

And here I am on the kitchen rug. That spot isn't really cool but sometimes it gets a breeze from the refrigerator. Before my person took my picture I was 100% belly-up with what my person calls "shrimp arms," for maximum coolness.

It was in my way, so I moved it

I wanted to look out the window one day, but my person put a new plant in my way. I moved it so I could see. Look at how I fit between the two other plants.

My person bought some new covers for the couch. I liked the old covers. But she took the old ones off, and put on the new ones and guess what? I liked the new ones even more! I've been on the new covers non-stop. I even go on them more than my special pillow by the heater. When she was organizing it all, I took advantage of the couch-cushion pile. My person called me "Milo and the Pea." I liked how tall I felt.

What I do in a blizzard

It got very cold yesterday when our new furnace broke. I wanted to lay on my cushion by the kitchen radiator like always, but it wasn't warm like it usually is. My person had the little heater on in her office. I like the heater but I don't like the carpet in her office so I stayed in the cold kitchen. Finally my person said "Oh for crying out loud, Milo! You're coming in the office!" Then she picked my cushion, my blanket and me up and hauled us to the office. As long as I wasn't touching the rug, I liked it.

See? Not touching the rug.

What I've Been Doing

I've been busy so far in 2010. The year didn't start out very good though. I got sick when I was in Greensburg and had to go to the special vet there. I didn't like that vet. She said I was "obese" and had bad teeth. Anyway, I got some medicine, which my person had to squirt in my mouth and I hated that a lot. But after a few days I started to eat my regular cat food again instead of throwing it up. And then I got all better. Now I feel like my usual tremendous self.

I found another spot I like and I go there when I am all riled up. When my person walks by I try and grab her leg.
