I know all of my fans have probably been wondering what happened to me – it’s been so long since I wrote something here. I’ve been busy keeping Mom organized – things have been crazy around here! Mom’s book about my sister Buckley (and me! I’m in the book, too!) has been really well received and is generating quite a bit of buzz around the internet. I’m so happy for her – I love it when Mom is happy, it makes me feel happy, too.
What I don’t like quite so much is that Mom is busier now, and there seems to be a little less time for reading, cuddling and watching tv. She always makes sure that we have time together, and I really look forward to bedtime now and snuggle next to her all night long. It seems to be the one time when I have her undivided attention! But I understand why she’s busy, and that it makes her happy to be this busy. And I try to do my part. I sleep on the perch next to her desk most of the day because I know that my presence inspires her writing (see photo above – that’s me, being Mom’s Mewse). I help with packing up books to mail to people – I’m really good at playing with the tissue paper she wraps them in (Mom says I mess up the tissue, but what does she know!). I also remind her when it’s time to take a break and to give me a treat or to feed me. It’s important that humans take kitty breaks every now and then.
I know underneath all this excitement, Mom is also a little bit sad, because it’s almost a year ago now that Buckley transitioned, and it brings back a lot of memories for her. For me, too, I do miss my sister. I’m just better at understanding that she never really left us, she just changed forms. I still have long conversations with her and I know that she’s hanging out here with us all the time. I only wish Mom would feel her more often. She’s getting better at it, and I try to help her.
That’s all for today. It’s time for another nap. Being Mom’s Mewse can be very tiring.
