I Waits

Mom's been really busy lately. She has been working a lot and, sniffing her, I don't smell another cat so I guess it's true. But it's kind of lonely without her.

When she's home, she has a lot to do, too, because she says she's behind in everything. Plus, she's been having problems with her RA, whatever that is. She's been moving slowly.

So, we have to take our together time when we can get it and however we can get it. Over the weekend, I spent time watching out the windows of the office.


Mom sits near me and I can get ear scratches a lot. Also, I can see onto the deck where she has a birdbath and watch bird TV.


Sometimes, I hop up on the chair next to her and settle down. We can stay like this for hours, mom working on the computer and me working at naps. I need to perfect my form you know.


But late at night, after the sun goes down, it's sometimes just wise to sit in the hallway and wait. Mom will come to bed and then we can get a proper night's sleep.


Mom says she'll be better about posting, but I think she really needs to take more days off, days where we can just sit on the deck.

We agree. Our mom person is sorely sleep deprived too. She needs to SLOW DOWN and learn from us kitties! Proper pacing is nap - birdTV - nap - nom - nap. Wouldn't you agree?

Deck time is very important!

We don't have a deck. Maybe that is why she doesn't relax a lot.

We sure wish your mom had more time for you, but we know if you stick close to her when she is home, you will get just as much attention as she can give you. And snuggle close at night. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Humans! They just don't know to stop and take a nap, like kitties do. Nap all day, play and eat, then nap some more.

Sitting on the deck with moms is the best! Be patient, Pilchard. You can do it.

I know how you feel because my Mom keeps saying she is so far behind and always busy! We are sad that your Mom isn't feeling well though. Please tell her that Mom and I hope she feels better soon! Love, Cody

We agree Pilchard! Summer is the time to relax with each other.
Sitting on the deck sounds purrfect too!
