Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I have a confession to make: even though I’m usually the good sister, I did a bad thing the other day: I broke something even after Mom told me to leave it alone.
I recently discovered that sitting on top of the microwave is a lot of fun. I can see what’s going on in the kitchen, the dining room, and even the hallway. It’s prime feline real estate, that’s for sure! Is it my fault that Mom also uses the top of the microwave to storeContinue Reading
When I got sick with a nasty head cold a couple of weeks ago, I was once again reminded of the healing power of cats. Allegra and Ruby were clearly worried about me, and their quiet presence was the best medicine I could have asked for. But why don’t I let them tell you in their own words.Continue Reading
Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I’ve been a busy girl! Between helping Mom with the Pettie nominations and keeping my sister in line, I can barely find time for more important things like birdwatching, sunbathing and napping. And as if I didn’t have enough on my paws, I’ve recently added another title to my long list of job descriptions: I’m Mom’s Purrsonal Trainer!
Every day at lunchtime, before Mom goes for her daily walk, she does weird things with these green things that look like giant bones. Continue Reading
Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I want to tell you about my super cool new toys! They’re called Cat Crazies, and they really do drive me crazy – but in a really good way. I like it when Mom tosses one out for me. I go bounding after it, and then I pick it up with my mouth and carry it around.
Mom keeps trying to get me to bring it back to her, but what fun would that be? It’s much more fun to watch her try to get it out after I’ve kicked it under furniture. I try to be very helpful by getting down right next to her when she’s crawling around on the floor.Continue Reading
Today is a very special day for me: four years ago today, Mom brought me home! It’s been an amazing three years, and it seems like every day, life gets better. I hope you enjoy the collage of baby pictures Mom put together in honor of my anniversary.
I can’t wait to see what Mom and Ruby have planned for me today!
Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! Mom said I should tell you what a good helper kitty I am when it comes to helping mom change the sheets.
The bed is pretty much my favorite place in our whole house. Our bedroom gets a lot of sun puddles during the day, and I like to take naps in them. And I love snuggling with Mom in bed at night, even if I have to share her with Ruby. I like to sleep curled up against one of Mom’s legs, and I love how careful she is when she has to turn over so she doesn’t disturb me.
But the best part about the bed is when Mom changes the sheets, Continue Reading
It has been said that cats have healing powers, and I’m proof that it’s true! I took care of Mom last week when she was sick. Mom said I was a very good nurse, and that what I did was very sweet. I didn’t think what I did was so special. I was worried about Mom, and I wanted to help her. It’s what we cats do.
I knew something was wrong when Mom didn’t get up at her usual time. She’s always on time with our breakfast, so I was getting worried when she was still laying in bed half an hour after she usually feeds us. When she finally got up, she moved very slowly, and her voice sounded funny – kind of scratchy and hoarse, not at all like what she usually sounds like. But at least she was finally up! Whew!Continue Reading
To me, sleeping with my cats is one of the joys of sharing my life with them. Every cat I’ve ever had has slept on the bed with me. In fact, the few nights one of them didn’t, it was usually because something was wrong.
I’m always amazed at how much room two small cats can take up in a queen size bed. Some nights, I feel like a contortionist, trying to get comfortable again without waking Allegra and Ruby. Middle of the night gymnastics are not conducive to getting a good night’s sleep. But what’s a little lost sleep, compared to spending the night with a my two girls snuggled up in bed with me?
Allegra and Ruby have their own thoughts about our sleeping arrangements, and they have been bugging me to share them with you.Continue Reading
I had been considering getting an iPad for quite some time, and a couple of weeks ago, I finally took the plunge. The iPad is my first Apple device, and I like almost everything about it. I use it for various aspects of my business, and it has made my life easier – and isn’t that what technology is ultimately all about? And yes, I admit it: it’s also just plain fun.
What I didn’t expect is that Allegra and Ruby would also enjoy it. But why don’t I let them tell you about it.
Ruby: What is that flat thing that Mom keeps staring at, Allegra?
