Hi everyone! Smudge here!
I’ve been in my forever home about a month and a half now. So Mayzie said I could borrow the blog today to fill everyone in on how I’m doing. Where should I start?
Queen Abby, Ruler of All That She Surveys still doesn’t like me much.
One minute, everything seems to be just fine and then the next, she’s running at me screaming, “Off with its head! OFF. WITH. ITS. HEAD!!!!!” It’s a little disconcerting, I can tell you that. Mom says it’s just going to take time and really, things ARE getting better. But it’s hard to be patient. I really want to be her friend NOW! Or at least not have to worry so much about my head.
My canine siblings are super cool.
I especially like hanging with my big brother, Ranger…you know, just chillin’ and doing manly, brother stuff. I do have to remember that Ranger has…what did Mayzie call it?….oh, yes, “boundary issues”…and not encroach TOO close in his personal space circle. But as long as I do that, we’re pretty good buds.
Let’s see, what else? Oh, yes!
I have acne! Yep. Acne. Did you know cats can get acne? I have it on my chin. How embarrassing! I have to take anti-bionics PLUS Mom and Dad have to wash my chin every night and put this sticky ointment stuff on it. Blech! I know they’re doing it for my own good and I try not to squirm too much but between you and me, I HATE it! I sure hope it clears up soon. (Mom wanted me to include a picture of it but I didn’t want to
ruin my chances with the lady cats gross you all out. You’re welcome.)
So that’s not so great BUT I forget all about it when I’m relaxing outside in…
My Very Own Tent!
How cool is THAT?
See, last year, Mom started feeling like Abby and Cap’n Ripley needed a little more mental stimulation. They were indoor cats (like I am) but Mom thought it would be great for them to spend some time in the outdoors. So she bought them a cat tent! Now, they liked it just fine inside the house…
But once she sat it up outside, they were pretty freaked out about it. So Mom put it in the garage and kinda forgot about it. Then last weekend, she noticed it and thought, “Hmmmm, I wonder if Smudge would like it?” And guess what? I DO!
It’s so much fun to get to go outside and smell the air and lay in the sun and watch the birds and squirrels. It’s a little slice of Heaven!
Well, that’s about it for now. All of us (including Abby, even if she refused to pose for the picture) hope you have a super Friday and a purr-fectly wonderful weekend!
