I had a very good day today, in spite
of the pouring rain. I was very glad for my rain jacket and my
umbrella, which Mommy held over my stroller so that I didn't get very
wet. Some of the drops came through, but not many.
slept most of the way to H., except for when we boarded the MAX. I
don't like the sound the MAX makes and the vibration when it comes. We
had extra time, so we walked almost a mile instead of riding the second
MAX. It was in-between cloudbursts, so we were pretty dry for the
walk. The roses were beautiful and smelled good, but I didn't want to
get close to them. I was still waking up.
around with us for our visit. The first person we saw on our floor was
A., who just lights up whenever he sees me. He calls me "My Kitty", and
you can tell it has capitals from the way he says it! "Hi, My Kitty,"
he says as he pets me and scritches my chin. I actually got to visit
with him twice, because he was downstairs later when we went down there
to find someone else.
A.M. has become one of my
favorite people to visit. She always lets me sit on her lap, and
doesn't care how I lie down or sit on her. I wanted to curl up on her
bed, but Mommy wouldn't let me. I decided I would settle down against
her leg, and she loved that. She kept laughing, saying, "This old lady
loves you." Yep, I know, and I love her back! I purred for her,
kneading away, with my head on her knee and my eyes closed while she
stroked my jowls. Pure contentment!
I wanted to stay
with A.M. for longer, but there were others to visit with. We went
downstairs, where the social hour was just getting over. That's where
A. was for my second visit with him. S., B., E., and another friend
were down there as well. I got more pets and demonstrated some of my
commands for them, because they hadn't seen me do any of those before.
we were done at H., Mommy took me to a new place. It's called C.
Someone at H. who used to live at C. told us that they might want me to
visit over there, so we dropped by to see. We walked in to the lobby
and were greeted with smiles and pets for me, with questions for Mommy
about me. The people behind the desk were very nice, but I wasn't
allowed to go behind the desk to make it easier for them to pet me.
They called the nurses to find out who would like a visit from me and
got one reply. When we got to the room, the lady and her
daughter-in-law welcomed us in. I got up on the lady's bed while they
both petted me. I said hi to them, then settled down against the lady's
leg and side, snuggling in so that she'd know I was there. I listened
to them tell about raising baby squirrels, rescuing a kitten who growled
like a tiger, and other fun kitty stories. I love to hear about other
kitty families! The lady would like me to visit her regularly, so we'll
try to do that each time after we go to H.
