Minette Wants a Wallabee

And I don't blame her !
Is that cute or what ?

Minette is taking her nap .. she sat by the door and watched the birds having a good time at the feeders that I just filled yesterday. The deer will hear about it and the chipmunks and the feeders will be empty by tonight.

She sleeps on cushions, all over the house. There are cushions just for Minette and there are people cushions that she takes over so tough luck to anyone that thought they were going to sit there.

She is  a bit territorial .. this is Her house and that is Her pillow and Don't Touch Her Dish.

She is still such a baby and so cute and still scratches me all the time and I have to take her to a vet to get her manicure. The vet always says the same thing, she was so good !
When she sees me with the clippers she runs and hides.
If I catch her, she scratches me bloody.
It is worth it to pay the vet . My cat gets a manicure, I do my own. Something isn't right about this.

She isn't getting a Wallabee either.

I won't hide in the cupboard  and make you spend hours searching for me  ... PROMISE !!!
Pleeease Mom, pleeeeeease .....

Minette These Days

She is growing up. She is 6 months old and a hellion. She is sweet, annoying, funny and adorable.
She liked looking at the snow. Curious stuff. She liked the sun shining on her and taking the chill off.

She, like the rest of us, wondered when it was all going to go away.

and then it went away and she wondered when she could go outside.

That isn't going to happen.
But I gave her a room with massive windows and sliding glass doors with a screen so she can
keep a close eye on the daily comings and goings of the Chipmunk family.
She is also perfecting her Ant Killing abilities.

Muy contenta

Minette is growing up.
She has also decided that this Snow thing is not so much fun because it makes her Mama crazy so next winter we will maybe go South.
Or something.
These days she is lolling in the "Conservatory" watching her chipmunks, keeping an eye on the birds and the bunnies.
When the deer come around, I expect Walt Disney to knock on the door.

She is well, happy and an insane kitten ... she keeps me company and she irritates me and she is my baby.
We are muy contenta ..

Kittens Can Read

Now I know where Minette is getting all her ideas.
She reads Animal Blogs !!

So ... mama has this room that she showed me.
It is all windows.
With places for me to sit and doors that are windows.
With places for me to sleep.
She even put a pillow there for me.
And she did the same thing in our bedroom !
I love my mama.
I didn't even bite her this morning  .

Mom is no fun

I  can't believe it ! Mom is locking me in at night !!!

She doesn't like it when I knock things off of her dresser .
She thinks that is "tiresome" and " she will do me harm if I break something special"...
I thought she said I was special.

She got mad because I was walking on the headboard of her bed and pulling on the curtains.

She got mad when I knocked something off of the bed.

She got mad because I knocked her hairbrush off the sink .
Three times.

She got mad when I knocked her house keys off the counter.

Now she has me locked in   and she won't let me play with her stained glass lamp on the bedside table.

Mom is no fun.

I am going to practice this today.
The weekend was fun. The baby was here. I got to play with his toys. He has fun toys. I want them.
Mom says she has a headache.

The Boy

Mom says we are having company this weekend.
The Boy is coming.
He was here before.
I like him. He can't do much but he lets me have his toys.
Maybe tomorrow I will let him have one of my toys.
But not the mouse on a string.

The Boss

The Boss ( yes, she insists on being called The Boss) thinks that since the  weather is better and the birds are everywhere , that she should have her own room.
So she spends her days mostly in a room with all windows and big window sills that a little kitten can fit on.
She makes odd noises.
She purrs when I ask her what is going on out there ..
She hops into my lap if I sit down to look at the birds with her .. purring .. purring.
Then I realize she has gotten quiet , she is asleep.
The Boss likes to nap .

Mama caught me .
I was trying to figure out how to unlock the storm door.
There are chipmunks out there !!!!!
Do you know how long it took me to move that chair ?

I am zausted. I am going to bed.

Helping Mom

I helped Mom.
I helped her when she came in with the groceries.
Yes, it is a help to have to step over me at the door. Keeps her alert.
Yes, it is a help when she drops something on the floor and I knock it under the table. Keeps her fast.
Yes, it is a help when I got in the way when she was climbing the stepladder . Keeps her balance good.
Mama loves me. She said I am some big help.

So Tired

I am exhausted.
Done in.

The Baby was here this weekend.
Do you know how much watching a Baby needs ?
And if you don't watch, Baby can catch you.
Or Baby plays with your toys.

Baby sleeps then I play with his toys.

I don't like the food Baby eats.

I do like Baby's Mama and Daddy.

But I love my Mama the best.

Now back to my nap.

I don't feel so good.

Mama took me to the doctor.
They did stuff to me.
They gave mama medicine to give to me.
They were nice but the shot wasn't much fun.
No one got mad when I made a mess in my crate.
I guess they are sort of nice.
I am going to go back to bed now.
It is raining.
I am tired.

What's a Cookie ?

My mama bakes cookies.
Whatever that is.
She yelled at me.
She said, Minette, I am baking cookies ! Get out of the kitchen.
So I got my toys and played with them, in the kitchen doorway.

Mama threw a paper tube at me ( paper towel roll) and I killed it... while still hiding in her laundry basket that I knocked over .

Mama kept baking those cookies.

Now we are waiting for the Man with the Package to come to our house.

I wonder if he wants a cookie... whatever that is.
I bet he will want my paper tube... I have to go hide it.

What's a cookie ?

Poor Little Minette

Back and forth, back and forth, carrying a stick that has a string with a felt mouse on the end of it ... wailing.

One would think she was giving birth, going into heat ... she was fixed, those things are not going to happen ... but she is wailing and walking through the house like some tragic little pussycat.

Poor little Minette... she must not have gotten enough sleep last night, so busy walking over mama's head and pouncing on anything that moved under the covers .

Waking up early with a need to sniff mama's ear. Yes, sniff my ear. At 6 am.

Poor little Minette got to go back to bed, in her crate, in the other room and Mama slept some more.

I guess I will go find a new toy , something that will make her smile instead of wail.
What ? you never saw a kitten smile ?

You are missing something .. kitten smiles are the best .. ( well, next to human baby smiles )

Yard Work

Today I  sat in the window and watched my Mom do Yard Work.
She said I did a very good job watching over her .
She says I am  very good at catching little things   and chasing things, so I could be helpful in the yard. But then she said I am about the same  size of a leaf .. does that mean I can do it or not ?

She said she wished we had flowers in the house.
She said Daddy used to bring her flowers every week.

She was pretty tired this evening, it was a lot of work.
I am pretty tired too, it was a lot of work, sitting in the window and keeping an eye on her.

She sat on the sofa with a nice big blanket and snuggled with me while she watched some television show with Dragons in it !
Dragons. I wonder if they have them here, in New York. I have to ask my Mom.

Nothing broke !

I am in the dog house.
Mama said she needed quiet.
So I climbed the kitchen cupboards and knocked some things over.
Nothing broke !

She put me on the sofa.
I ran into her room and jumped in the window.
From her bedside table.
Things fell off.
Nothing broke !

She is trying to write.
Whatever that means.
I wanted to sit on the desk.
Things fell off.
Nothing broke !

She put me in my crate .

Fishing with Minette

Mom was out in the garden doing things and all I got to do was watch through the glass doors.
The birds were out there too.
Squirrels and chipmunks were out there .
Everyone but me.

Then Mom gave me a toy.
With a Fish on it.
I killed it.
Three times.

My Mom locks me in my room at night so I won't get into trouble.
I don't think I am getting into trouble. Just because I like to keep her desktop clean.
Of everything.
And hide her pens.
And make a lot of noise.
Playing with the pens.
She said I was playing Kitten Hockey.

In the morning Mom takes me out of my room and takes me back to her bed.
Mom likes to snuggle with me.
I like to snuggle with my Mom.
I like to bite her nose too.
She told me No
She let me wash her eyebrows.

Her face is very clean. Especially her eyebrows.

Mom bought me a little cushion bed thing that she put by the glass doors.
The bird feeders are out there.
A zillion birds are out there.
Sometimes Mom comes to check on me.
She said I was so quiet she wanted to be sure I was still here.
Silly Mom.

Now she wants me to get off the computer.
It is her turn.

She brought me a treat.
I love my Mom.

Being a kitten

There are days when it is just boring to be a kitten.
No one wants to play kitten games. People yell at you when you keep climbing in the windows.
People yell at you if you knock things off tables and they really yell if you hang on the curtains.

Mama put my chair by the glass doors so I can see the bird feeder.
Mama refuses to open the door and let me go out to the bird feeder.

Mama said something about cold, wolves and foxes .
What is a wolves foxes and cold ?

Time for a nap.
