Sunday musings

One of Mom’s friends got a stroller for her kitty, and another is thinking about getting one for her kitties. Soon we’ll have a whole kitty walking club! We’ve had icky weather, so we haven’t been for any walks lately. When the weather gets nice we’re going to meet up with Mom’s friend and spend the day in the park. I can’t wait to make new kitty friends. Mom says they’re Maine Coons, like me, but about 3 times my size. I can’t imagine kitties being that enormous!

Mom’s been very busy making music. Last week it was Beatles music. Next week it will be Broadway music. Later this month she’s singing in two very special pieces – John Adams ‘Transmigration of Souls’ and Beethoven’s Ninth symphony. One is a tribute to the people that died in the World Trade Center, and the other is a celebration of life. Sometimes I wish I was a person so I could go to the symphony and hear the chorus sing.

I don’t know why some things I do annoy Mom so much. Just cause I have to smell everything she eats. I climb on her and sniff her breath (I practically stick my nose in her mouth) and stick my face in her plate. She always pushes me away and tells me I have no manners. I also follow her into the bathroom all the time. She says she doesn’t bug me when I’m in the litter box, so why do I bug her in the bathroom? But bathrooms have all kinds of interesting smells. Don’t people understand that kitties like to smell things? And people smells are very different from kitty smells. I have to investigate those!

My new cushion and harness came, and they were both too small. The cushion was too small for my stroller and the harness was too small for me. It’s Mom’s fault. She didn’t measure the inside of the stroller, and she didn’t measure me! She figured I’m a little kitty so she got me a small harness. Turns out I needed a large! If a little thing like me needs a large harness, I don’t know what people with enormous kitties get for them. Anyway, Mom sent them back and is now waiting for the bigger ones to come. Sigh.

I guess that’s enough musings for a Sunday. Kitty kisses to all my friends! I miss you all and as much as I’m proud of Mommy’s music making, I’ll be glad when she’s not so busy and I can spend more time online visiting with you all. At least I get to keep up with your blogs, but I don’t get to spend much time on Facebook or Twitter. TTFN

I’m just too smart for my own good.

Mom took me for a walk in my stroller yesterday, and decided to let me have some running around time outside the stroller. Well, I figured out how to get out of my harness and almost got away. Mom packed me up into the stroller again lickety split!

We’re walking back to the house and the next thing Mom knows is my little head is sticking out of the stroller where the cover unzips. That’s right, I figured out how to unzip the stroller cover. (Now I know why Mom makes me wear a harness and leash inside the stroller.) Mom zipped the stroller back up and got me home really fast.

Mom ordered this new harness and leash for me. For those who know her, this is Baby Patches mom’s site.

Mom’s hoping I won’t figure out how to get out of this one. If I do figure out how to get out of it, I don’t think I’ll be getting anymore walks outside. And I for sure won’t be getting any out-of-the-stroller time. I’ll post a pic of me in my new harness when it comes. Mom got blue to match the stroller.

Purrs everyone!
