Monday musings

The Divine Ms. P: So far today I've thrown up a fur ball, peed outside the box and hollered extra loud as the woman was drifting off to sleep. And every time she heads towards the kitchen I follow her and then meow as loudly as possible to let her know that I need more food. All that before 11 a.m.

Haven't decided what else I'll do, but with her feeling like doggy doo today there's no way she's going to put up a struggle.

Long time no post

Ms. P: It's been quite the ride, but as the woman is fond of saying we're still breathing.

We started writing a post listing some of what's been happening, but it became long -- very long. Think War and Peace with a set of encyclopedia thrown in for dessert.

The weird thing is that she actually lives a boring life. The other day I got excited when she started hemming up her pants (I love playing with thread), but then she remembered she hadn't done her yoga and the pants have been lying on top of the dresser ever since. That was last week.

Yesterday the woman picked up a pair of knitting needles for the first time in over 20 years and started knitting just to see if she remembered how. Cinza was having a wonderful time batting at the wool, but there has been no knitting since last night.

We keep telling her to sit down in front of the computer and help us with our blog (it's not like we ask for much!), but she still gets tired easily.
So things are a bit of a question mark as to whether we'll continue with it or maybe just visit every so often.

Purrs and hugs for all our friends and visitors. We've missed you all very much.

Twelve Step Tuesday -- Step Twelve

Having had a spiritual awakening during a wild catnip binge, I realized that life was too short to be counting steps. (It's not like I have twelve toes to use for counting!) Instead, I decided to intensify my pursuit of instant gratification and because I'm such a generous spirit, I made it my mission to share the good news that hedonism is THE WAY to go.

Music Monday & update about us

The Divine Ms. P: The woman is still unwell and dealing with a lot of stress. It's been going on for awhile and we don't know what to do. We're considering shutting down one or both blogs. Another option may be to do less posting and visiting and not comment as much as we used to.

Change of subject: here's a woman who has the heart and soul of a cat and I mean that in the bestest of ways.

From one diva to another: I respect you!!

We also love this version of the same song by The Blow Monkeys from Dirty Dancing:

Twelve Step Tuesday -- Step Eleven

Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with the goddess as we understood her, praying only for divine intervention to squash the humans' efforts to get in the way of achieving our goals.

Manic Monday

Ms. P: The woman is exhausted. So while she's dealing with health issues and trying to catch up with her to do list, we'll probably be posting and visiting less often for the next while, but we wanted you all to know that even though our presence is less visible, you're still in our hearts and thoughts because we treasure our friends.

Here's another flashback; this time it's done with a song.

Happy Monday everyone!

Flashback Friday -- Ms. P's gratitude list

Ms. P: I wrote this shortly after we moved in with The Woman and not long after Cinza's arrival two summers ago.

1) Thank you The Woman brought along her rattan chair. (Cause it'll have to do since little Ms. Troublemaker is hogging the bed. So small and yet so territorial.)

2) Thank you for the drawer underneath the bed in which she likes to hide. (I appreciate moments of peace and quiet and yes, that out of sight, out of mind thing works for me.)

3) Thank you that I now have four instead of two dining room chairs. (Someone of my stature deserves to have choices to suit her changing moods. Not that I'm moody. I prefer to say I have a rainbow of moods... a palette.)

4) Thank you that The Woman listens to something other than jazz! (So when do I finally get to hear her Aretha Franklin & Jacksoul CDs?)

5) Thank you for the change in food -- both wet and dry. (So what if it was intended for Ms. Pipsqueak. I am, after all, the Empress of all there ever was and all there will ever be. She'll never be more than a princess wannabe.)

6) Thank you for the new toys. (Yes, I can overlook that they were hers all along. But, what's hers is mine and what's mine is still mine.)

7) Thank you for those wonderful moments when I hear her being scolded for scratching my couch. (Where was the little floor duster raised? In a barn??)

8) Thank you for my new home and that I now see more of The Man. (But really now, boxes all over the place! Aristocat that I am, I only need two boxes for each room -- one for scratching and another one to lounge in.)

9) Thank you that we moved in with The Woman -- for the additional set of opposable thumbs. (Always good to have a back up when I'm hungry and now I have two people to cuddle with!)

10) Thank you for the little window in the living room. (The one that was all mine until the invasion of the squeaky, butt sniffing, pillow/bed hogging brat.)

11) Thank you that I now have the privilege of sharing my litter box. (What could possibly beat having to smell eau de latest offering of the little beast, whilst relieving myself? What's next? Pictures of her all over the bathroom?)

12) Thank you for the closet near the front door... that she hasn't discovered it yet. (Although I can't understand why the humans haven't set aside time to fix it up for me. Why should I have to settle for a crowded, teeny tiny piece of real estate, while she hogs my bed and pillows?)

13) Thank you that The Man had a week of normal working hours and periodically came home to visit during the day. (It upset my sleeping routine, my every routine... a kind of practise run before little Ms. ADD arrived.)

14) And most of all, thank you that my having to share my castle with the princess brat is only a temporary thing. (She is leaving, right?)

Cinza: Needless to say I'm still here because when the humans brought me home it was supposed to be forever.
