April on the Leash

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry that I have been gone so long, but something great has been going on. Well, I did not think it was great at first, but I do now. You see The Lady came home one day with a leash. At first I was aghast that she expected me to wear it to go outside. I mean, really now. I let her know with a few swipes and hisses that I was not amused, but she still made me put it on.

Now I can say that I was wrong: the leash is great. I get to go outside, The Lady (or The Man sometimes) is there but not too close and I can spy on the neighbors. Fantastic! I find that if I sit on the kitchen stool and let The Lady put my collar on I get outside faster. Sometimes I even go in with out her making me and sit on the stool so she can take the collar off. I don’t do that all the time though, I don’t want her shortening my time outside!

Below are some pictures. I need to go rest now. I spent 45 minutes outside today and I am tuckered!

Catnip! Did I mention the catnip!

Chillin’ under the tree.

Man, I am beautiful!

There is grass to chew out there too!

Yes, devilishly handsome.

Spying on the dog next door. 

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It does not seem different to me than yesterday, but the Lady and Man seem to think that it is. It is different than last year at this time, but I do not like to talk about those days. Now I have my toys and my lovely spots to sit and things are much better. I even got a Christmas present! It is a catnip cigar. It is so cool! The Lady says that I am her Christmas present. She can be so mushy sometimes.
I love to sleep in my box. The Lady was going to use it to ship a package, 
but I refused to get out of it. Now I sleep in it most of the day. 

I like to sit on the back of the Lady’s chair while she is sitting in it…

…though I also like to sit on the laptop when I am feeling lonely. 

When the Lady is working in the kitchen she has me sit on a stool. 
She does not seem to like it when I try to sit on the counter to 
watch what she is doing. 

Here is my gift under the tree. 

Opening it was difficult. (The Lady made me a Christmas collar too.)

I had to take a break. 

Success! Oh the Joy of Catnip!!


Wishing you a wonderful 2012!
