So are we going out, or what?

I am waiting here to see if we are going out before it starts raining. What a beautiful sunny morning it has been. Now you are back the wind has sprung up and clouds are whirling over the sky.
How much longer can I sit here wondering if I can exercise you while it is still at least fine?
Oh you have been walking, have you?
That doesn't count. It is supervised walking that counts. How else can I teach you all the things you need to know? You aren't very attentive when I take you out. I feel you may never learn.

Do you think she is needy?

Do you think she is needy or what?
When she says things like, 'I love to have you near me, dear cat', I get suspicious.  I look around to see if there are any other cats nearby. But no. It is just us. I know I had an entire packet of my jelly food around half an hour ago, followed by a snack of my crispies, but the plate is empty now.
'Do you need more food, Sasha?'
I am thinking about it. Say some more nice things to me.

Little eysies are shut

'You've got your little eyesies shut! Aren't you cute?'
Well of course I have my eyes closed.  I'm trying to get a catnap. A long catnap, lasting several hours. So you want to feel my legs and ruffle up my furs? This isn't a good idea and it's not a good time either.
Sometimes I think it's better if she goes out and leaves me in peace.
Until dinner time.

A list of things to learn

Lynettea made a list of things I think she needs to learn. I have a few extras to add.
1. She must: brush and massage me 1 times per day.
2. She must go for walkies with me every day.
3. I must be fed whenever I want.
4. She must cuddle me when I want.
5. She has to play a game with me every day.

Some extras from me:
On my signal she must open the window.
I am allowed to go in and out at will and jump the fence.
I have decided to ban nearly all visitors.
She must stay at home and only go out to get supplies. We could investigate getting everything delivered.
I will sleep on the bed.

I am waiting to see if she agrees to my demands.

'Sasha, where do you think this is? Gilead maybe?'

I don't think she is going to agree. Well it was worth a try.

Confiding in Bear

It has been a long day. Bear is helping me relax. I have entertained friends from Japan and Papua New Guinea and Adelaide. Well they all actually live here in any case. They all think I am a very special cat and helper for Lynettea. All the praise is nice, but I like a quiet life.
'Well at least you didn't hide under the bed, Sasha.'
Thanks, Bear. You can sit on the edge of my cosy if you want.

winter sunshine

I am sharing some winter sunshine with the tomatoes. My special place means I can look out of the window at the garden. Lynettea had it put here for me when the kitchen cupboards were installed. The furniture people thought it was funny to have the kitchen designed around a cat.
But Lynettea didn't care if they laughed, because she knows how important it is to me.
'You are my 'best cat', Sasha!'
I thought I was the only one. I get confused being called all these different names: darling cat, best cat, gorgeous one, my special friend, etc. etc. Better than 'naughty cat', I suppose.

I know how to help her

I just have to sit close to her and she feels less stressed.

De-stressing

With all the worries of the world crowding into the smartphone I think it is time to start de-stressing. Why Lynettea put on live feeds of disasters, I will never know. From the wiser cat point of view, since I cannot do anything about these disasters, I prefer to focus on being comfortable.
If there was room in my cosy, Lynettea could join me. She doesn't let me sleep in her bed.
Later it will be time to get up and go for a short walkies in the cold. Then coax her into having a game with some of my toys. She will be in a good mood then, laughing as we dash around.
