|The twins, Pretty & Ugly.|
I have recently removed something from
my routine that was taking up a disproportionate amount of time. I
had let myself get caught up in an online activity that is just
nothing more than a time waster. I was letting it take up far too
much of my time and finding myself not spending time doing the things
I really wanted to. With it gone now I plan on spending more time
playing with the cats, I also hope to start posting more. The next
problem is getting back in the habit of sitting down and writing, I
can get lazy about doing this.

Recently I got a new (used) couch,
tossing the old one away. As you can see from most of the photos in
this post it is a big hit. With the old one only The Martian and Lil'
Bit would get up on it to sleep, the others would sometimes crawl
into my lap. Now every-time I turn around I find another cat fast
asleep on it. Even Squirrel likes it, she usually is not to be found,
hiding from the others. You can see she has found herself a place on
it. I don't know if maybe it is because this one has no cat scent on
it yet or what, but at least they are enjoying it.

Previously I had mentioned that Thor
disappeared, well about 5 or 6 weeks ago my next door neighbor had
their cat disappear on them. The came around asking if I had seen her
after they had been away for a day and a half. They said they could
not keep her in because of the dog door, so let her roam free. Then
almost 2 weeks ago I came home and got a scare.

As most of you may know about half of
the cats I write about are NMK's meaning they technically are my
neighbors cats. Being allowed to come and go as they want 3 of them
spend 80% or more of their time in my house. I only let them out so
my neighbor can still see them and not think I took them. Most
mornings they will go out, then when I get home to open the back door
they are waiting to come back in. Just about 2 weeks ago I came home
and only 2 were waiting to come in. Not unusual sometimes it will
take a while before they realize I am home. That night I went to bed
late and TJ still had not come in, this a few weeks after the other
neighbors cat disappeared. I was getting worried, he is usually the
biggest pest about coming in.

|Squirrel noticed the camera.|
Having gotten up in the middle of the
night to use the restroom, I went to the back door to check once
again for him. There he was wanting in, finally. I decided to keep
them in from now on. You might say I stole them, although long ago
they had already decided that this was home. The first couple of
nights it was difficult with TJ crying to be let out. I do not like
the idea of punishing cats for their behavior, that was what I felt
like I was doing. When I went to bed I would have to get up and put
him in the back room by himself. I did this so I could get some
sleep, but still felt like I was punishing him. Thankfully he has
stopped. All 3 will sometimes bug me to let them out during the day
when I am up and about but they are getting use to it.

I want to start something new so look
for news in an upcoming post about KWF. I am hoping I can find
someone to help me with some artwork for it. I see I need to update
my about me section I hope to do that by next post. That is all the
news for now, until next time remember “All Kittehs R Good Kittehs”
Oh my gosh, all those kitties disappearing would freak me out! I'm glad you're keeping them in.. they will get used to it, it might take a little time, but they will.ReplyDelete
Looks like the couch is a hit!
Inside kitties for sure a safer kitties, especailly if there is something out there grabbing kitties. With luck, eventually they will adjust.ReplyDelete
If you have a place for an enclosure, the kitties likely would enjoy it.
I really wish I could built them a catico to play in. Then there would be bugs and lizards for them to play with. Maybe sometime in the future, I keep hoping.Delete
P.S. I really love the word "clowder" don't you?Delete
