Holy Batman, they all look just like ME!!!

A message from Lady......

With Mischief's birthday only a few short days away, I thought I'd share my party planning and shopping with her fans.  Today's task was to find a costume for her.  Apparently this world is going to the 'dogs', because that's all they sell!  I hunted high and low, and finally found some at Petsmart, thank goodness!  I'm keeping them a surprise, and while I was there I did some other 'birthday shopping'!  I kept all the "goodies" in the trunk of my car; good thing, too, because Mischief was all over me when I came home!  I don't know whether she smelled the pet store smell, or if she was just perceptive and being inquisitive!!  All I can say is Mischief is in for one heck of a birthday!!!
She's suddenly been sneezing a lot today, but it hasn't slowed her down from galloping like a horse through our apartment from one end to the other at 4 am!!!  It could be because last night I was cooking some onions, and her eyes were watering.
One thing I did finally get for her is an ID tag.  I would encourage all pet owners, even if you have an indoor cat, to get one for your feline.  You never know if your pet will get out and run off and get lost, and I've been meaning to get one for Mischief for quite some time.  It's an invaluable piece of identification that could get your beloved kitty returned to you safe and sound.  Now I won't have to worry quite as much!

It's my party......

Yeah, that song popped into my head, but I'm not crying!  I wonder if Master & Lady are going to throw me a birthday bash!  In any case, I hope they see my wishlist I have at Amazon!  Boy there's a lot of stuff on there any kitty would love to get their claws into, especially ME! 
My Wish List
While I was, ahem, "window shopping", I found what could only be described as a kitty haven:
Welcome to My (Future) Crib! 
Of course, what's a crib without a cozy little bed made just for me  :)
Some other cool links I came across for kitty toys & stuff:

I know no birthday is complete without the traditional birthday cake, but since I don't really have a sweet tooth, I'd forego the cake for another delectable delight.
This 'Fancy Feast' has always intrigued me, but I have a feeling my palette would prefer something green and leafy!  No doubt the icing on my cake would be some of this:

But what I'm hoping for most of all is that they give me a taste of some homemade valerian root oil!  I actually overheard Master & Lady talking about how they were going to make a "start to finish" video about it!  So I'm pretty sure I'll be going crazy on the 30th!!!  :)
I'm also pretty sure that since my birthday falls the day before Halloween, that it will be a Halloween themed bash, including a costume.   Hmmmm....I wonder if they're planning on "dressing me up" as:

Those might be cool.  I don't know about these, however:

It could be worse, though - downright ugly!

(shudderrrrr)....But let's not hope they plan on dressing me up like my poor buddy, Pork Chop!  Oh noes!!!!
I'm not too concerned about party decorations, unless they're fun balloonies and/or streamers!!
But all fancy shmancy aside, I'm still a simple cat, happy to play in trash or with toilet paper rolls and empty boxes!!!  And in any case, I'm sure Lady will capture every celebratory moment on my special day to share with all of you!  I'm sure it will be the cat's meow!!!   ;)

I am one spoiled kitty!!!

Meow, 'tis true, from treats and toys to showering me with affection, I am one spoiled (but not rotten!) kitteh.
Tonight, for example, Lady has been awake doing something with the darn computer, so I felt compelled that it was the perfect time to jump up and block the monitors, looking my cute and adorable self, and nuzzling until I got some well-deserved attention and she pet me.  Only after five minutes she kept putting me down on the floor.  So of course, I jumped right back up.  She's so nice, she never gets annoyed.  She would pet me for awhile, then set me down on the floor again.  And I jumped back up.  This could have gone on all night, but I know she had work to do, so after about half an hour or so, I gave her a break, and lay down, doing my best to make sense of whatever she was doing on all four screens until my eyes got blurry and I caved in to sleepiness.  Zzzzzzzz......

(In case you're wondering, I'm dreaming about what prezzies I might be getting for my birthday in a couple of weeks!  Ooohh, I can't wait!  Will post my kitty 'wishlist' tomorrow!  Nighty-night!  Don't let the bed bugs bite!)

It's my birthday month, I'm excited! Meow!!!

Obviously, it's my favorite time of the year!  The weather has turned a little cooler, the leaves outside are starting to turn into gorgeous colors, the birds are migrating south (although Master has noted the geese are flying north?!), and I'll be turning 4 at the end of the month!!!
Even the dogs in the back have returned!  I don't know where they went, I had feared they'd moved, but they must have gone on a doggone vacation, because they're back!  I missed them, although I gotta say, I don't think they're barking as much, that or I don't notice it.
Maybe that's because I'm way too busy with my favorite fall pasttime, bird watching!  Oh, it's the most exciting thing!  And yes, they do perch in the tree out front from time to time, just inches from my twitching whiskers!!  I wish I could join them and play with them!  Sigh, one day maybe!  Although I did manage to sneak out the door last night when Master left it open.  I even made it down the stairs and outside!  But once again, although as exciting as it was, I was forlorn and scared even more!  Before I knew it, Master had scooped me up in his arms and carried me back up to safety in our cozy little apartment. 
Speaking of cozy, with the windows open and the evenings being a lot cooler, I've had to seek out some warmer sleeping spots as of late.  My favorite is still behind one of the computer drives, but I also liked sleeping on a black backpack on the floor.  Not only were these spots warm, but they were both 'inconspicuous', so that I could sleep peacefully without Master or Lady noticing me!  Alas, Master ended up taking the backpack to the truck the other day - I hope this means they're not going on a vacation!
During the day I enjoy sleeping on the blankets in a sunny spot on the bed.  Dreaming away the day as us felines do, living the life of Riley.  Ahh, bliss.  Most of the time, like humans, upon wakening I've no memory of what I've been dreaming about.  But sometimes I do remember....dreaming mostly about things that are on my mind: playing with the birds, the squirrels that used to frequent my yard back in Florida, the time I was out in the snow, other cats in the old neighborhood, my visits to the Cat Doctor, my recent cat buddy who's disappeared....fortunately I rarely, if ever have "nightmares", and usually I wake up from my naps feeling pretty refreshed.  It always feels so good to stretch my body out fully and yawn.  Then of course, I have to be nosy and check out whatever's going on!  Oh yeah, and another thing I LOVE, especially after waking from one of my refreshing naps, is to be brushed.  I could be brushed all day.  I think the equivalent for humans would be getting your hair done at the salon.  I feel so pampered!  But, unlike humans, I really don't like getting my nails "done".  It doesn't hurt when Master clips them, but I don't understand why they have to do it!  I mean, I enjoy scratching and sinking my claws into the recliner so much!  : D
Well, that's all for now.....I think Lady's going to upload some new videos, so watch for them SOON!
