December 2018 and January 2019
Well here it is February all ready. I know Mom was supposed to post for me on the last Saturday of each month, but December and January were busy for her around those times of the month. Also I really have not been doing much myself. Just a lot of napping, eating, sleeping, eating, napping, eating, well you get the picture.
I have on occasion asked Mom to go outside. Most of the time it is too cold or too windy. There have been a few odd nice days here and there. So Mom will put my jacket on, this is my fully cloth harness for late fall, and take me out. She will clip my leash to the deck stairs while she goes to the shed to take care of Milly. That only takes a few minutes and I am usually ready to go back in myself when she is done.
The reason is because all the grass and my catnip are all brown, dry or covered in leaves. I do sniff around in the leaf piles around the deck. That is about the only thing to do other than sniff the breeze. The ground is cold on my feet too. Most of the area around the deck is in the shadow of Bob the RV, so the ground stays frozen and cold.
One day I was pretty insistent about going outside Mom said, “Ok, but there is snow everywhere.” She put my jacket on and opened the door. She was not kidding that there was snow everywhere. There was about an inch covering everything. I was going to change my mind but Mom nudged me out the door. I stepped close to the wall outside where the snow was starting to melt. I was thinking about jumping from the deck to the ground by the steps but didn’t. My hips probably would not like the landing part. So I went ahead and walked down the snow-covered steps to the snow-covered ground. Mom went on to the shed to take care of Milly. When she came back I was already back on the deck waiting to get in the front door. Brrrr, my feet were freezing. I was glad to be back inside. It reminded me of when I was a kitten living in the hotel courtyard in winter, before I came to live with Mom.
The only other thing I have been doing is helping Mom with her crocheting.
This group of photos is from late December.
I was helping Mom with a photo shoot for her granny squares afghan she has been working on.
This group is from January 20th.
Mom had finally finished the squares afghan.
She laid it out on her bed so that I could do my final inspection and comfy test.
I helped with the final measurements after Mom had crocheted the border/edging on the afghan.
So there you have it. The last two months were just pretty much the same old same old. Mom may not do another post for me until the end of March. Seeing as we did this one in early February and it is such a short month.
So until next time, stop and smell the catnip!
