Welcome Miss Sophie

Welcome Miss Sophie!

Sophie is a rescue cat about 10 years old. She's a small lady.

 When she first came home, she leaped out of the carrier and strolled right on out to the hall and started exploring. 

So much for keeping her in one room for a few days - that advice really bothered me but I was willing to do whatever I needed to make her feel at home. 

Sophie had a hard time getting up on the ledge but once she figured it out, she mastered the leap from the tub to the counter to the ledge. I cringed when she missed it the first few times.

She leapt up to the bed to sleep with me her first night and always comes when she thinks I'm ready for bed. Sometimes even when she thinks I should be ready for bed.

Sunbathing is a favorite past time

Once I'm asleep, she wanders off to play and explore and then takes a nap in Millie's old bed.  I thought I removed all the cat beds but apparently. I missed one or two. 

poor baby is tired

Nice & quiet nap spot

Welcome home Sophie!

SAM - RIP - May 19 2017

Sam was almost 13 years old.
Diabetes wore him out.

Sam sure loved to eat and he snatched my food too.

He loved violas and pansies for snacks.

Sam caught a rat once... outside.

He didn't catch the butterflies, birds or squirrels though.

Sam loved to nap.

I will miss him a lot.

The house is very quiet now.

Almost Caught One....

Well, not really...

it was a butterfly but if it had been bigger it would have been a dragon!

It was getting hot and Mom wouldn't let me use the window to get inside. It was really hot!

Mom is mad at the rabbits because they ate her flowers again. 
Not this one silly, she won't take pictures of ugly flowers!

See Ya Later Alligator!
Sam - the man

Looking for Dragons and Toto

Yesterday I watched for dragons and Toto while Mom was outside with her flowers.

She really likes her flowers. 

She's still got some she hasn't put in pots. 

I think she has a problem. She just keeps hauling in those pots and plants and then doesn't have a place to put them.

 I made sure Mama Bird was still watching her baby eggs and didn't get blown away in all the storms.
She's in a safe spot on a high window ledge and she's behind the screen too.

See ya later!

I got a present!

Mom got me some new blankets to snooze on. They smell good and even if I have an accident, they stay dry and don't stink. 

I'm a Senior citizen so don't make fun of me. I can't help it.

Mom loves me and she is happy now if I pee on the new blankets cause she says she can roll em up and toss em. 

If it makes Mom happy, then I'm happy!

She got mad at me last week because she couldn't find my new snoze spot. I didn't mean to make her worried but I was sleeping good.  really good.

I've been hiding on the side of the magic cloths machine. She thought I might be hiding behind it but I wasn't. She didn't look on the side but there I was, sleeping all squished up and nice and warm on a cold floor for my tummy. 

She found my hiding place when she threw my old blankets in there to clean. and all that racket woke me up!

have a good lazy day!

Stole a Sweet Potato!

Mom tried to have a sweet potato for dinner but I stole it after she took a few bites.  

She took it away after I licked it all over.

BUT she doesn't have proof!  She didn't take a picture. 

She is eating popcorn instead.

Martin Luther King Day is Vet Torture Day

Mom gets a holiday for Martin Luther King's birthday. 

She was all happy to get a long weekend and even more happy when she got up this morning to give me my breakfast and shot (she forgot the shot) and then took a short nap. When she woke back up the sun was shining and it looked so nice outside.

I should've known. I saw her get the crate and put it on the couch. And she didn't forget the shot, she never gives me one before a vet visit. 

She fooled me.  Really, she did. I was napping on top of her chair and she picked me up and put me in the crate. Then, even worse, she took me to the garage and stuffed me in her car.  I didn't like that so I pooped and peed in the crate. 

I hid behind the bench Mom was sitting on while she talked to the dr about me. I only weigh 10.3 lbs now. I'm a handsome little devil! And the dr told her to get a sample of my pee but I peed it all out on our way over here.  LOL.    

She told Mom I was doing good and only have to get shots every 3 years now. Wonder why that made Mom happy? I'm the one that gets the shots and have to see that office cat Socretes that Mom likes to pet when I'm not looking. hisssssss

Happy Holiday if you got a day off!

Love Sam
The handsome devil

Happy New Year to ME!

Good morning!

I would promise to be good all year but that's not going to happen.

But I am good, I'm just still sick.

So when I pee and poop all over, it's cause I don't know I need to or I can't run fast enough to the litter box. 

Sometimes, when Mom is home, I scratch at the back door handle and she lets me go outside. I can pee and poop really good out there.  

But I don't like to stay out there very long any more.  It's not as fun since Millie isn't here for me to chase any more. 

But sometimes Mom grows pansies and violas cause she knows I like to snack on them.

So anyway, you have a good new year too!  From SAM, the mighty!
