Sharing the view

AHhhhh.... the doors are open. The windows are open. There's lots of skittery things and great smells. Leaves keep falling and I wish I could pounce on them. For some reason, Giver of Greenies does not want me to make a hole in the screen so that I can go in and out. I would only make a small one.

This morning T.O.C. and I both sat at the door and talked about all of the little tasty things. They have been sitting on the patio table making faces at us. I think, even though we don't like each other much, we would share it if we caught it. At least, I might. Maybe. (not)

T.O.C. says the open doors won't last and that soon we will be closed up again. But she says that there will be good things called "blankets" and "fleece" and "heater vents" to sleep on.

I think she is very wise. Even if she says rude things to me.

What. Was. THAT????

Giver of Greenies is home. But. This evening she let an OG-DAY in the house. It was on a string connected to its human. She said it could not come and see me. But I went under the bed. I was sceered.

I have sniffed around the whole house. I think it is gone.

What was she thinking?????

Friday Five: Thankfulness

Mary Beth who is one of the RevGals like Giver of Greenies posted this Friday Five:

This one is going to be veeeery simple: List at least five things (people, places, graces, miracles...) for which you are thankful. You may elaborate as you wish, or keep it simple.
Giver of Greenies is a little stressed today. Something about 'keys' and 'cup of stupid' which I don't get, but she said I could play today.

So, here's Tiria's Thankfulness List:
  • Greenies (duh. you expected???)

  • Toys like bird-on-a-stick and strings.

  • Sunny spots and fleece-y beds.

  • Not staying in the Pound but finding my forever family. I mean, I am glad someone got me out of the cold when I was lost. But I was miserable in the Pound. It was loud. Smelly. Noisy.

  • Cat TV out the back window. One of these days, the door will be open and I will find me something tasty.
PRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I am one happy cat.

Tag, I'm it. You could be too!

Amie the Cattle Dog gave me a quiz. Even though she is a d-o-g she looks very nice and happy. So I told her I would play...
1. What advice would you give a young kitten who seeks to be as successful a cat as you are?
You have to train your humans early. Show them how you will reward them with purrs and loves if you get the kind of treats, sleeping places and otherwise appropriate attention that you want and deserve. Don't ever bite or scratch unless it is a human who should know better. Kitten humans just don't understand the idea of 'gentle' or 'don't pull' so it is best to just go limp and slip out of their hands. A pitiful yowl will also help you be rescued. Half-grown kitten humans (the kind that try to dress you or put silly hats on your head) should get a gentle swat and then one with heat in it. Grown-ups sometimes like to play, so you let them do it until it hurts and then you give them a "bat-bat-tiny claw" so that they figure out you don't think it's fun. When all else fails, hide under the bed. And don't come out until you hear the Greenies bag rattle.

2. How can peaceful coexistence between cats and dogs be maintained?
I have never lived with one. They walk by our door and the smell of them scares me. Amie seems very nice, and so do Dogblogger and Molly. I think I like them because I can't smell them. I think the key is that if dogs and cats are co-habitants, that you let them get used to each other slowly.

3. What is your humans' most endearing trait?
They know how to give a girl Greenies and most amazing scritches. Sometimes both at the same time!!!

4. Even the most advanced beings have room for self-improvement. What do you hope to accomplish in the next year?
There is this yummy looking stripey chipmunk... some day I will catch it and it will be MINE MINE MINE!!!!

5. What would you like to tell humans who seek the secret of contentment?
Three things:
  • purr loudly and often
  • wash behind your ears
  • a nap in a cozy spot brings your mood back up to sunny

RevGalDogPals or CatPals (or humans, for that matter), would you like to be interviewed by me, Tiria the Shadow Princess? Here are the rules:
1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave a comment here or on my human's blog saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post with your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Gotta run... it's time for my facial...
