Fang Shui Friday

The wise cat does not nap with its back to the door. The wise cat knows that this is a good way to wind up stepped on or kicked.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

So you can see me facing out, I don't want to get stepped on. These are the big windows that go to the floor, but mum sometimes walks in and out here. This is he door that she uses when I get taken outside in my porch.

It gotted warm here and furry windy, but now the breezes are cooler and some rain drops came down. With the wind mum's chiming things and the ribbon thingy made for lots of good entertainment.

We needed entertainment. Mum was working from home yesterday when the puter just didn't want to be hooked up to the network. Mum called and they had to send a guy out to fix it. He had to put a bright red cable outside. But the thingy is just laying on the ground. Some special guys have to come and bury it. I wonder if I can help them do the digging. The guy said they aren't allow to have their hookups be above ground any more. Mum will have to be careful when she gets the grass eating monster out.

Mum put in a few more plants tonight but still has a few to put in. Plus the stuff she put in the other day looks good. The portulaca in the front boxes are putting out lots of blooms already. That makes mum furry happy. She will need to take more pictures to show off her green fingers.

I keep hearing talk about a holliday. Hmmm, does that mean pressies? Don't kitties always get pressies when hollidays come around?

Beanmom says that the holiday pressies are naps. She needs some extra naps, that's for sure!

We hope you get pressies. At least maybe the pressy of having your mum home with lots of time to spend with you!

Derby, you are so lucky to have your furry own porch!!!

I heard this holiday is for memorial thinking, not for pressies, but the furless ones do a lot of bbqing too, so that is good.

I hope you get to enjoy your plants over the holiday, Derby. My humans will still be spreading bark dust over their new stuff. Perhaps they will deign to take a photo so everyone can see what a lot of work I've done snoopervising!

So true about not napping with your back to the door. A bug might bite you, too!

Derby, you are a very wise cat not to sit with your back to the door, no one wants to be squished!

In Canada the holiday was last week and I didn't get any presents! My Mum has me convinced that you only get presents on your birthday and Christmas or when she sees something cute at the store! I'm glad I started blogging or I wouldn't have known about this injustice! I think I will print out your post and leave it on her pillow, so she knows I'm on to her.

Oops, I just realized if I'm going to do the blogging I had better change Mum's name to mine - I'm off to do that now.
