Happy New Year! My purrents say it's been the new year for a few
weeks now, but this is my first note since it became 2013. We're back
to visiting! I got to cheer up people on the bus on the way to H. on
Wednesday, as usual, and heard a lot of cat stories. I took a nap on
the MAX light-rail train, except for once when someone wanted to pet me.
wore my new NurtureCALM 24/7 Feline Calming Pheromone Collar, which is helping Carbon, Starla, and me
get along at home. Carbon and I were ganging up on Starla sometimes,
but now that has changed. Starla even wants to snuggle with me, and
I've given her head a grooming or two! We're still in separate rooms
most of the time, but we can be on the bed at the same time for a few
minutes now. S. thought my calming collar was cute. It's purple, too,
which looks good with my fur.
All I wanted to do at H.
was snuggle and sleep. Mommy was a little embarrassed about that,
because usually I want to interact more with my friends. It was so cold
outside, plus it had snowed on Monday, so it felt like the perfect day
to snooze! I curled up on beds right next to my friends' legs to show
them I was there, and they petted me while I snuggled. One lady had a
nice, plush robe on, and was sitting in a recliner. That was the
perfect place for a nap! I squeezed between her and the arm of the
chair, turned around, and snuggled in with a purr. She petted me and I
closed my eyes for a snooze while she talked with S. and Mommy.
didn't stay as long as we usually do, because of how tired I was, but
we visited with 10 people! That's not including the people we saw in
the hallway and elevator, even. It's no wonder I was tired!
the way back, we had a nice bus driver who remembered me even though it
had been about 2 months since we'd ridden his bus. When we got on the
bus, he said, "Oh, there's the nice kitty!" I was happy he remembered
me. When we got to our stop, it was the last one on the line and time
for him to go home. He got to pet me!
Erin was leaving
the house as we were walking home, so I got to say hi to her. Then it
was time to eat, use the box, and sleep some more. I played later on,
but I needed my rest!
