end of January

well, my Mom is very happy that it's the end of January. she says it's a very good thing 'cause we're a whole month closer to Spring, and that means warmer air and flowers and no more icky snow. so I would have to agree with her. i go out in the back yard whenever I can, but it's really no fun when it's all snowy, my toes get all wet and cold and it takes me forever when I come in to lick them all clean and dry.

i wish i had somethin' acitin' to report, but it's been pretty quiet around here. just tryin' to stay warm, which is hard some days when it's windy. that cold air blows in around the edges of the windows and i have to find other places to sleep than my normal spots. my Mom was 'splainin' to me the other day how lucky me and Casey are, that some poor kitties actually live outside in the winter. oh, i wish i could find them places to stay inside, that must be horrible!

well, sorry such a boring post. i had some cod tonight, it was very, very tasty. just the right temperature and my Mom shredded it up into nice small pieces. I am very lucky.

Seven Things

Here I am with my sister. we actually have been sittin' closer than usual. don't know why. maybe 'cause she hasn't been poopy in a couple of weeks. i was tagged by Derby, here are the rules. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a notification on their blog. is my link to Derby. Now the seven things....

1. i adore, above all things on earth (except my Mom) cod. i don't know why, but it is like nectar of the Gods.
2. i know i "rule the roost" and probly take advantage a little. well, actually, a lot.
3. i like to read. my Mom will sit down in bed with a book and i sit with her and help her read. of course she rubs my tummy while reading, so that may have something to do with why i like reading.
4. i love to roll on concrete if the sun is shining on it. even if the temperature is really cold.
5. i've been eating a lot of the purple shamrocks that my Mom loves. i don't think she's noticed yet.....
6. i don't play with toys much. but lately a wand toy with a long stringy felt thing has been fun. i play with it all on my own, my Mom doesn't even need to hold it.
7. especially since i seem to be picking up a bunch of new ones lately, i bet i have more nicknames than anybody. wanna bet???
i think most everyone has done this, so i'm not gonna tag anyone. however, if anybody hasn't posted, please do!

Edsel the Pooch Pillow Poobah

well. i recently discovered the allure of pillows. my Mom has a "couch" pillow at the back for support when she reads in bed (which is her book every night and the newspaper in the morning). in front of that, she has that pillow in the beigey pillowcase, one that she doesn't use for sleeping, but again for back support. then in front is her feather pillow that she sleeps with. (sometimes i get a corner of it and put my head on it too!) anyway, i discovered that when she leaves, she sort of piles them up so they create a very, very nice spot to recline. the last couple of days i have spent all day there. she was pretty annoyed that i didn't even run down to say hello when she got home from work 'cause i was so involved in the pillows. so, i have yet another nickname - "Pillow Poobah". i asked the Dad what that meant 'cause it's a strange word. he said it's like a Sultan. i didn't know what that meant either. so i asked Casey. even tho' she's poopy a lot, she knows stuff and said it's like Royalty that gets waited on, and that kinda sounds like me, so i guess i'll accept this new name. but i'm tellin' you, if you can score a feather pillow, go for it!
