I love being an indoor cat. I spent the first year or two of my life outside, and that was plenty for me, thank you very much. I prefer the pleasures of indoor living. I’m particularly glad that I didn’t have to be outside in all this rain this week. Enough, I say! I want my sunny spots back! Mom took this photo of me the night we had a really bad storm move through. I hate thunderstorms, the noise scares me and I can feel the vibration of the thunder all through my body, and I don’t like it one bit. I go to my safe place in the shower in the downstairs bathroom and wait until the storm passes. Mom gives me Rescue Remedy when she knows storms are coming, and I love her for it because it helps calm me down a little, but I still hate storms.
Aside from the weather, though, this has been a really great week for us. Mom got exciting news about her book on Monday. She got something called “Editor’s Choice” for it. She was so happy she couldn’t stop crying. I was happy because she was happy. I think it means that the book is really good. It’s about my sister Buckley, but I’m in it, too. This morning, Mom sent the manuscript off to the copy editor. I don’t really know what that means, but it made Mom happy, so it must be a good thing. And this afternoon, we got the photos the photographer took of Mom and me a couple of weeks ago. I look really good in them, and so does Mom. She says one of them will be used in the book.
I like it when my Mom is so happy.
