Well I did it! I made it! One whole year! I am so grown up now! Still I continue to learn a lot from living with these humans that I call my family. I love the energy that my tiny human has. She can play with me whenever I want! However, she and I are both starting to learn that calm moments can be just as meaningful as the playful ones.
My tiny human got “sick” for a few days. It got to the point that she had to go to the hospital, and I didn’t see her or my tall humans for two days. When she got home, she still didn’t feel up to chasing me around, but I was ok with that. I got to snuggle in with her and we rested warm and safe in her bed. Thankfully she was soon recovered and ready for Halloween!
She was very excited about dressing as “Tinker Bell” and my humans laughed about dressing me up as “Capitan Hook”. I didn’t understand what they meant, but I soon found out. (see photo below). It was not my most dignified moment of the year, but it sure made my tiny human happy.
Speaking of undignified, have any of you met these squirrel creatures? They are bullies. There is one at our home that loves to torment me. It will jump from window screen to window screen looking for me. Once I am in the window watching, it will climb up and down the screen, get face to face with me through the glass. He taunts me. My tall human refuses to open the window and let me retaliate. It has given me an opportunity to bond with my older fur sibling. She gets taunted by the birds. We typically don’t get along all that well. She is older and doesn’t want to play, but I have taken to watching out the window with her. Small steps but they are in the right direction.
If you had told me a year ago that this was the life I was destined for when I found my humans a year ago, I may have had some hesitations. Now though, I can’t imagine life any other way. I have come to really appreciate my humans, and those scratches under the chin! They are the best. I have a unique life for a cat. Spending time in the church office I get to meet all sorts of people, but I home I get to curl up with my favorite person, my tiny human. Not a bad first year if I do say so myself.
