PATTY: Just popping in to say Bhu will be 18 in just 17 days. I hope we all last that long. He's keeping us awake all night with excessive vocalization (loud screaming, howling and screeching). Sleeps like a baby all day. We are not amused but we are taking him to the V-e-t next week. I know what she will say, though: I'm almost certain it is cognitive dysfunction. In addition, I'm positive that the adult humans in this house are suffering from sleep deprivation!
BHU: Why waste yer time sleeping when you could be petting or feeding me?? I don't unnerstand you humans.

|10:00 am and sound asleep!|
|6 pm and sound asleep!|
Egads, for a while there we thought he was gravely ill, he cried out so much. But for such an "ill" boy he was having no problems packing away the Whiskas and Fancy Feast Appetizers and all of his bodily functions were functioning -- especially his MOUTH! So, we are still in that mode, not getting any sleep at night, using ear plugs and shutting the bedroom door . . . but mostly we get up and tend to his effurry need all through the night. I wish there was a Pawrents' Union I could complain to!
|Beautiful Mimosa blossoms outside my bedroom window!|
|These apples are much smaller than they look!|
Anyway, being an elder kitteh pawrent is no picnic. Share stories if you will! Is it going to get better, worse?
Hope your summer is going well! xoxo Patty & Bhu

|You know what I want!|
|Face furst into the white meat chicken primavera!|
BHU: I will stay inside, thank you.
PATTY: Well, me too, aside from shoveling the drive and what not. But a snowy day is always a good day for working in the sewing room, so head on over to Sew Sew Patty (tab at top) and see what happened! Stay warm and remember Spring will be here very, very soon!

Cleaning a little waiting for the snow to start falling and I came across these three photos of Bhu from long, long ago. Isn't he handsome? Doesn't he just exude confidence? When he was a kitten, we were setting something up in the living room and a box wound up in the corner. Box + Kitten = Permanent Installation. So this wound up as his little "safe corner," where he could go whenever he felt he needed centering. We gave him this vintage atlas to exercise his claws and another vintage book sort of wound up there, too, right alongside the basket where we keep all his toys.
Stay warm and safe today! xoxo Patty
|"Hello! You wanna see mai Lair?"|
|"There's mai box and the claw strengthening equipment. Just ignore mai mom's dum sun hat."|
|"I'll just sit here and guard mai toy basket. Ahem."|

|A new year!|
BHU: Ice on the window. Can't see through the ice on the window!
PATTY: So a few things have happened in Bhu's world the past several weeks. Recently, Bhu has become excessively vocal. No surprise: he IS part Siamese and he's always sung to the ghosts. So, I asked for help. On Facebook. Paula, Brulee and Truffle's mom, saw my plea and signed me up for a very cool group on Facebook. It's always good to have the wisdom of those who have been there! I got some great input and found a very helpful article on Catster ("What to do when your cat shows signs of senility.")
BHU: I'm Feline, not senile.
PATTY: Ahem. Sabryin and I changed our behavior, recognizing that he just wants more attention and so we stop what we are doing and give him pets. He immediately quiets down and typically curls up and takes a nap. I just want to thank the two groups on Facebook that made me feel less desperate about the situation: The Cat Lady Coalition and Cats With Blogs.
Though we missed the Happy New Year hoopla, we look forward to all that 2015 has to offer and hope that some of it is great joy, superb health, and plenty of kitty treats for all our peeps and furrends! xoxo

|Me and mai pal Gumby up on the fridge, circa 1999!|
Speaking of old, this is a very old photo of me and mai pal Gumby. We had what mai mom calls a "fatal attraction." The first time I met Gumby, he was so spindly I just wanted to gnaw his little arms off! It's the feline in me -- those uncontrollable urges. Mai mom kept trying to put Gumby in places she thought I couldn't go . . . like the top of the fridge. Guess what? I got there! You can see how happy Gumby is to see me.
PATTY: What you can't see are the deep fang marks on Gumby's poor little arms. I had to save him, I had to. He is now inhabiting a very special spot on the top shelf of the wall to ceiling bookcase, but don't tell Bhu.
Anyway, Happy Gotcha Day Bhu!! We absolutely love you! xoxo

|This is the place to be on a cold, snowy day!|
|You know what would make it even better?|
|Pets from Poppy!|
BHU: Whatchu complainin' about allatime? It's not so bad!
PATTY: Easy for you to say, with all that FUR!
BHU: Your misfortune having been born a furless one.
PATTY: Yeah, only in the winter, mister.
Hope you are all in a warm spot today, just like Bhu. Hope you get some pets, too! xoxo
