Portrait by Ailyn

I am so honoured to have had my portrait drawn by a young friend in Vancouver.  (Cousin, really, as we have relatives in common....her dad is my mom's nephew).

Good likeness.  Captured the essence of me quite well, don't you think?

Thanks, Ailyn.  I love it.

I Can't Get Down

Hi there; how are you all doing?  Having a nice day, summer, life?  I hope so. 

Do you think you could come over and get me off this table? 

Thanks, I'd appreciate it.

OMG....I keep finding all these incredible smells in the garden.  I just want to roll and roll and roll

Freddie's Mom here:  I was wondering why my cilantro plants were growing so poorly.

Hi, Brett!

I feel pretty honoured.  I had a visit from someone who reads this blog!

That's Brett holding me.  No kidding.  He's really nice.

I apologize for being quite fussy at the time.  I thought maybe he was a vet or somebody going to do some invasive thing or another to me.

Brett's mother, Dianne, is the lady in the hat.  She's my mom's friend - they grew up together.

Pretty neat, huh!  I think so.

Such a nice morning!  I felt like running around.

Hey, Cat!

We had a yard full of birds for a few days, mostly these noisy, orange-eating, show-off Baltimore Orioles


Might not be able to see them, but I can hear perfectly well, and I know they are right above me.

Then, I heard a tweety  "Hey, Cat!  What are you doing?....."  

Rose-breasted Grosbeaks can be such jerks

I'd be up that tree in a minute if I didn't have this dumb leash.

Next time, bird.

Life is Good

What could be better than sunbeams and bed of fresh catnip?

Sometimes a bird or something flies over and disturbs me...just a little.

Mostly though, it is quiet outside this morning.

Happy Victoria Day weekend.

Rolling Around in the Dirt

Well, finally....the air is warm, the ground is dry and I can roll around in the dirt.

Learning to do more things every day.  

No, I still can't see, but I just know You are there.  xoxo

Sunny Afternoon

What a nice day we had yesterday.  The sun was shining but also quite windy.  Mom fixed me up a spot to rest out in the backyard.

The ground is a little cold yet so she hauled out the old quilt from the shed.

She thinks the shaved bit at the back of my head might get sunburned.

Nice, cuddly spot

I do get a little bored, though

Nothing to do but listen to is kind of quiet where we live

There were Snow Geese flying over all day....can't see 'em but I can hear something noisy somewhere above me.

I'm told this is a really nice pic of the apple tree branches

She's quite a nice person, she looks after me very well, but she's never been much of a photgrapher, just sayin'....

One Step At A Time

Many things have happened since our last post - adventures & misfortunes.

The long and short of things is that after a bout of seizures, Freddie is now blind.  

We were away from home when all this happened.  We've been home for about two weeks and Freddie is learning to sense her way around our house, including going up and down the stairs to the basement...the long flight still needs my help, but Freddie is able to do the three stairs from the backdoor up to the kitchen by herself.

She's one amazing little cat.

Dental Care!

Yep, Mom brushes my teeth - and I don't mind it; not really.  I've chewed up a couple of these little toothbrushes already.  :)

The toothpaste tastes pretty good (it's chicken-flavoured).

I might let my Auntie Carol do this in March, when I'm staying with them.  It's cool if the paste goes everywhere other than in my mouth.  The enzymes will work when I clean my face.

I Still Fit!

Tomorrow is recycling bin pick-up day.  Thought I'd give mom a paw with getting things gathered, boxes taken apart....

Wait a minute.... 

A box that looks like I would fit in it

 Yup, See


Well, it isn't any worse, mom, than you trying to fit into those pants you want to take along on your birding trip...just sayin' so stop laughing.


(the bleak look of a cat realizing she isn't a tiny, slim and trim kitten anymore).

Freddie's Favourite Toy

 I got quite a few new toys and things for Christmas.  I like them, but one new toy is my super favourite.  It came in a big box; my mom likes the bigger thing from the box, but this is mine, all mine...

It is so easy to play with in any room

Here we are in the bathroom

where there isn't a lot of room between the tub and this little table, but isn't that the fun of the whole thing?

And, sometimes things get knocked off....

I didn't get yelled at so nothing broken and nothing new to play with either

Now it's sneaking under the rug

Got it cornered now
