November Notes

 

Well here it is almost the end of November. So I will fill you in on some of the note worthy happenings for the month.

The weather has been up and down. Some seasonal weather where it has been to cold, windy, or snowing for me to go out. I have gotten to go out a couple of times this month though. Those days were nearly 60 degrees or better and sunny. There is not much green grass for me to eat now. It is really slim pickings. All I can do in my catnip jungle is rub on the dried brown stems.

On one nice day Mom was going to take me out but I was in the middle of my morning beauty nap. So she found me a few blades of grass and a bit of catnip that was still green that was on the south side of the wildflower bed. She brought them in and put them on my perch(Mom’s sewing machine cabinet) in the bedroom. She said,”You were sleeping and now it is dark so I brought the outside in to you.” I gave her a grateful look. She spoils me sometimes.

A couple of mornings when Little Kitty was out of her room to play, Mom set up a blanket fort for us. We had so much fun running around in it. We sneak attacked each other. I was like a kitten again! Then Mom had to put Little Kitty back in her room. We both were so wound up that we were both getting a bit too rough in our play. Little Kitty had here claws dug into my face pretty close to my eye so Mom said that was enough. I had also made Little Kitty cry out when I had her pinned to the floor I was probably biting her a bit too hard. So Mom broke that up. I did end up with a small scab behind my ear from her attack on my head. Little Kitty came away unscathed.

 

Oh, and Little Kitty has been my little sister for two years now.

Wow, time has flown by since she was this poor skinny scabbed up kitten.

She didn’t get much bigger but she is a much healthier happier kitty.  She is our forever kitten.

 

The last note worthy item for November is I have been helping Mom with her crocheting a lot. She finally finished the blanket for Connor. So I helped with the photo shoot for measuring.

 

After she got the border finished I did my final inspection of her work.

 

Little Kitty helped with the staged photo shoot for the blanket too.

I think she needs a little bit more practice.

 

Until next time, stop and smell the catnip! You know I always do!
