Dowager on a Downer

Wednesday, February 27, 2008


It's kinda odd how, when my human is sick, I get to feeling down and out myself. Even though she went out and bought me a turkey and cooked it up and shredded it into bite size pieces, I find that my mind is on other things. I do love the turkey. Don't get me wrong. It's just that when I'm feeling so low, it is just and effort to get off my rocking chair and head over to the food dish to eat. I do eat plenty and nibble on it all day. My human is quite satisfied with my appetite. It's just that when my bones hurt, I get to yowling a lot, and she gets annoyed and shuts the door on me.

Now how is that gonna make me feel good? Where is my self esteem going? I am the Queen of my home, and she seems to forget it. I am so disappointed that I don't even bother to bite her anymore. I just purr like crazy the next morning when she picks me up and holds my like a baby. Her baby, and I don't mind. Though undignified for a Queen.

I guess I should appreciate the things that I got. Like the fresh water bowl sitting beneath the distilled water container. She didn't realize that I would be interested in it. She just put it there to catch the drips. But, I love it! The distilled water is so pure and delicious. I have never touched the faucet water bowl since the new one appeared. It is an effort to drink from it, though worth it. I have to stand on my hind legs (so unlady-like) and dip my face into the bowl. I cannot get my paw in there to lick the water off my paw as I would prefer. But, like I said. It's worth it.

Well, maybe I will feel better tomorrow. In the meantime, I think I will go take a long nap.

Scare

It's been a while since I have blooged. Okay, blogged.

I guess I am in the doghouse now.

Yesterday, my hooman (hoowoman in this case) couldn't find me. She and her friend looked all over the house for me. Since the door had been open earlier they thought maybe I had gone outside. I do that occasionally. I like to lay in the sun on the sidewalk out front of the door. One of my favorite spots.

But I wasn't there.

She called my name over and over. What a racket she made! She crawled on her hands and knees and shined a flashlight under the beds. She yowled and Meowed really loud. She sounded just like me. But, she couldn't find me.

She got pretty frantic, and went to her computer and quickly made a lost cat sign. She ran off forty of them and distributed through the neighborhood, out there in the cold and wind. It's a shame she went through all that trouble, especially since she has a virus, right now.

By the time she got to my friend, Cinnamon's house, she was pretty exhausted. Good thing Cinny's hoowoman was home to convince her to come back here.

I can't really say where I was.

But, that red headed skinny witch who lives with Miki and Mini walked right into our house while my hoowoman was away looking for me, and when she came home there was Red coming out our door.

So now, the door is ALWAYS locked and I can only look outside through the screen, or the window, if I can actually climb up there. It's located a lot higher than it used to be. I have been clinging to my person like a shadow ever since. Instead of ignoring her and sleeping out in the other room where that very nice heating pad keeps the bed warm, I have spent the last two days at her elbow. She is really insecure, you know. I wouldn't want to feel like I had anything to do with her having a heart attack or anything like that!

Demanding Calico











Yowling Cat!

Food was not enough!

Didn't you like the vitamin syrup I put in it?

Come up on the bed and let me pet you!

She walks away!!!

I guess I will have to get up, and see what you want.
