A Long Winter's Nap

My person bought me this new fleece bed. After a long day of raking my new Catnip Santa Mouse and helping my person wrap presents, I like to relax in my bed. I knead the fleecy part.

Sometimes, when I want a lot of attention, my person rolls me up in the bed and carries me around. She says I'm like a burrito. We walk around the house and look out the windows. I like that a lot. I also nap in my bed.

Fall Fashion (and frenzy)

I am enjoying the fall. My Greensburg person made me this festive orange bandana to wear. It coordinates with her fall decorations. I like to wear it. The cool weather makes me very energetic. I have been playing extra hard, and I bite my person when she doesn't play enough. I also like fall produce. So far, I have raked and licked apples from the farm and sampled a strand of spaghetti squash. My person said we are going to get a pumpkin, and this time it won't be from a can.

The long, hot, Cat days of summer

My people went to the beach. My person told me it's like the biggest litterbox I could ever imagine. Even though I didn't go to the beach, I lounged on the cushions and inspected the beach supplies. Here I am napping on both a cushion and a shovel.

Time lapse

My people brought home some plants from the farm. I hopped into the box to relax.

After I sniffed the marigolds and settled in, I decided to put my head down for a little while.
Then I took a little nap. Look how I wrapped my toes around the box handle for comfort and security.

Living on the Edge

Look how I expertly distribute my girth on the window sill.

Things I eat and drink

Here I am eating my special wet food, that my person combines with water to form a slurry. I slurp the slurry. Then I take a bath and dampen my fur with my slurry-breath.

I like to chew on leafy things. When my people brought home the farm basket, I sniffed all the vegetables and chomped on the leafy ones. My person said she would have to wash off my slurry-spit later.

Here I am in a beer box. I don't really drink beer. Just water from the sink. I don't care for my water fountain anymore. I like beer boxes though.

Just right

Now that it's summer, our upstairs gets very warm. I like to go upstairs and lounge in the closet or behind the futon on the carpet. My person says it's too hot for me to spend much time up there. She says I get overheated and glassy-eyed. She only lets me go up for a little while, then she makes me come downstairs and closes the door. Yesterday she measured the temperature and it was 95. Just right.

Sometimes, I look a little bit like a cow

Here I am, lounging on the rug. My person said the pattern of my fur reminds her of a cow print. She also said cheese comes from cows. I like cheese.

Also, look at how long I am!

What company?

My person was getting our extra bed ready, so I helped her by pouncing on the sheets and digging in them. Then I settled in on the pillow. I took a bath. I even got a little bit under the covers. I was glad to have a new spot all set up for me. Then she said we are having overnight guests. And that one of them has four legs and black fur.

So very sleepy

After a busy day of playing String, scratching my person while she sat at her computer, and climbing up the window screen, I was tired. I went to bed early. I have been sleeping on my person's pillow a lot lately. I don't like to share it with her though. I like to push her off, by sleeping on her face or touching her eye while she sleeps. Then she moves and I get it all to myself. See?

My Conditions, Part 2

I had to take a medicine for my bladder problems. It had some side effects. Specifically, poop would just come out of me. I left little blobs of it around. My person said it was like living with a rabbit. It also stuck to my fur. She kept sneaking up behind me with baby wipes, which I did not like one bit.

Once that cleared up, I started to get sick. I threw up a lot. My person took me to the emergency vet. I had to have a lot of tests, including one where they shaved my belly. I hate the vet's office. My person told the staff that I am not cooperative. They did not believe her. They tried to take my blood. They had to bring me back to her. My fur was a mess, and the staff's hair was a mess. A big blob of my fur was stuck to her head. I got a note in my file about that one. Heh.

I might have a pancreas problem. But I might not. No one really knows. My person said that tests show my organs are in slightly unusual places.

I took some medicine for a few days and now I feel better. Here I am licking my belly after my test. My person says I have a little pink piglet belly.

My Conditions, Part 1

Well, things were going great until a few weeks ago. I was on my annual Spring Break when one day I started having trouble at my litter box. I was all upset. The nice lady rushed me to the emergency vet. The people there did a bunch of tests, which I hated. I had to stay in the hospital for almost three days. The doctor told the nice lady that I had a "urinary obstruction" and I had to have procedures and a catheter and an IV. I even had to wear a cone. I hated all that too. Then I got to come home. Now I eat special food to prevent "crystals."

My person came to get me and now I'm back in New Jersey. She said it's very important that I stay hydrated now, due to my condition. She bought me this special fountain. It's OK, but I still prefer the sink.

Now that I'm on Spring Break, I have several beds to choose from.

Not quite...
The first bed is comfy, but I am not really allowed on it. My fur makes its owner sneeze.

This is the bed my person uses. See how plush the pillows are? I like it when she is there.

Just right...
This is my new favorite. It is a red cushion that the nice lady puts in the hallway. I like to sleep and lounge on it. I can keep an eye on everything while I relax. She said it's the Dog Bed. I say, It's the Cat Bed now!

I'm on my annual Spring Break in Greensburg. I am also ready for St. Patrick's Day. The nice lady made me a green and white bandana. Maybe to celebrate I will chew on her shamrock plant.

A Big Help

When the clothes are fresh from the dryer, I help keep them warm:

I also make sure the ironing board is sturdy. My fur sticks to it.

My person says sometimes the clothes look worse after I help. I disagree.

Cat on a Mat

Sometimes my person does yoga, and I do it with her. When she does "downward dog," I walk around underneath her, like she's a bridge. Sometimes I'll sit down and have a bath. She says "Milo, do you have do be *right there, right now*?" Well, yes.

When she lays down on the mat, I bite her head. I grab her hair and chew it. Something about that mat makes me act up.

A kitten named Raja

Recently my person met this kitten. His name is Raja. Raja and his person live in the same building I used to live in. My person said he has white and caramely fur, like mine. He only weighs three pounds. He is very lively and smart. He even wears a sweater. I think I would like this kitten a lot.

This is what he looks like:

A football fan. Sort of.

I am wearing my Steelers bandana for the big game tomorrow!

Even though I look mad here, I'm not. I'm just really static-y today. I like wearing my bandana. And my fish tie.

Happy New Year

Well, I had some good fun over the holidays. I rode in my carrier to Greensburg. We had company on Christmas Eve and I visited with them. My person said I was the "host with the most" and complimented me for not jumping on the table.

I had turkey, chicken and beef every day with my cat food. For Christmas I got new nip pillow with Santa printed on it. I took a break from all the festivities by napping on the couch. I like the holidays.
