Lazy Weekend

I am having a very lazy weekend and the PM has been pretty good about keeping up with me, although she keeps muttering about lysol and bleach.....

Tripping around the blogs

I have been daytripping around all the bloggies, but not always being allowed to comment:

-Admiral, the PM will set out the milk tomorrow night after the brothers are gone....
-Simba, life is better with the humans around!  Did the PM ever tell you she used to have a shorthair ginger tom?
-Spitty, I think you are a softie underneath it all!
-Mario, any plans for the holidays? 
-Dante, I'm glad you got to enjoy your Grandpaw's birthday with him.  Did you help him blow out the candles?
-Here's hoping Harley won't have to wear Daisy's dress!

Yesterday was my day to be under the weather.  I think I am doing better, I know the PM was very worried yesterday, but she did not seem quite as worried today.  I think it was just a bad morning and hope she will see that, too.

It got very cold here last night, PM said it was because of bad weather in Missouri.  I hope all the kitties and humans are OK.  PM says many or not, but we will keep the claws crossed that they don't find any more hurt or dead.

PM has 'state auditors' coming to work tomorrow to interview her and a nurse about one of her clients.  She is a little nervous because she has not been interviewed for an audit here before.   She had a practice yesterday.

All in all, we're kind of tied up right now and hope thing settle down over the long weekend.  We will be checking with all of you soon.

This and That--another diary entry.

The Prime Minister is almost over whatever was ailing her; very few coughs anymore and she went swimming today. She took a new dress to change into and had to breeze through the house quickly after swimming to change from a shrug over it to a cami under it due to the way the bodice is.  (The PM does not like to try clothes on in the store, so she sometimes does not know exactly how things will go together the first time she wears them.)

We have been having warmer weather and alot of trees are blossoming, which is part of why the PM has been sick.  It also means that the birdies are out singing alot more often, so TV is much better.  It also means that I can go make my morning inspection of the courtyard much more often.  The PM likes how I smell after being outdoors, although she wishes I would purge grass outside rather than coming in first.  She says it's 'icky'.  The PM is such a girly-girl sometimes; 'icky'--how funny.  I think she is that way at home because she has to be tough at work alot.  And in managing the Realm.

Next week she gets an extra day off and that is right around my 13th birthday.  I was about 3 months old when we met in August that year.  So she tries to use Memorial Day to remind her about my big day.  We will see how she plans to celebrate.  Frankly, a bit of chicken or some beef would be enough, along with some extra time outside.

Here's hoping everyone had a good weekend; now let's get over to Simba's and get sailing!

My PM is under the weather.

My beloved PM is under the weather; the stress of recent events (as well as allergy season) is catching up with her.

Between being pooped on by pigeons, being kicked in the head at the swimming pool and close encounters with woofies, she ended up feeling so bad that she came home after her first appointment of the day yesterday.  She read and napped on the couch and I cuddled with her alot.  She felt enough better that she went to work today.

But she is threatening to relapse.  When she got to work, one of her shoes had ripped open at the sole and it turned out her skirt had pigeon poop on it from last week.  Luckily she did not have to see clients today!  MOL!

My PM has tough times occasionally between her health problems and job stress.  This is one of them.  So, if she does not blog as often, please understand.  She is taking care of me first.

The world spins out of control!

I am very worried about the PM and some recent events.

On Wednesday, she was caught in a bird-poop backsplash with it landing on her hand.  She thought she had otherwise escaped, only to be told later, there was a big spot of it on her new little shrug she was wearing.  She is still traumatized by this, saying she can't get over feeling dirty.

Later, she went to a small woods that she has been going to for many years.  Dogs are allowed there, but they are supposed to be on leashes and this used to be true.  However, this time, they were all *off leashes*!  And some of them were wet and muddy!  And two of them ran up, almost onto, the PM!

Four of them even had a conference off-leash with all their humans!

When the PM politely pointed out the signs saying dogs must be leashed, the humans laughed at her!

World Events

The Prime Minister and I have been consulting about recent world events.  There are many irrational things about the human world I do not understand.

The royal wedding, for instance.  It was lovely as such things go.  I liked the dress the new Duchess wore.  It was elegant and modest, necessary qualities in royal dress.  It also sounds as if the lace was full of symbols with a lot of meaning in regards to her new position as Princess and one-day Queen.

I guess many human beans think that mating is for life and this is why they can get all swoony and make such a big fuss about the 'first time'.  We in the cat world do not understand this.  We understand that desires come upon those us who have not experienced The Traumatic Event and that such desires can be sated, but we do not fool ourselves that mating lasts for life.  Many humans seem to get hurt when they realize this is true.  It hurts them and their kits.

But it took a long time for the PM to understand my point of view and I don't know if many other humans will.

The other big event was the assassination of Osama bin Laden.  This has been very puzzling for me; first of all, any good cat queen would not have let him live as soon as she realized something was wrong with him.  When he became a terrorist, any good cat would have put him down as quickly as possible.  We understand that some are born not right and cannot be allowed to live.  I admired President Obama's take on this; bin Laden was evil and needed to be taken care of.  When the occasion arose, the President gave the order and the job was done.  Justice was served.

Some humans say that he was wrong; there should have been a trial, he should have had to face his victim's family, he could have been jailed.  The fact is, is that he was more of a danger to this world, kitties included, alive than dead.   With all the technology humans have invented, there was still no way to sequester bin Laden.   Get over it; President Obama and his men acted like cats, more power to them.

The PM says she agrees that he could not be sequestered and still wishes that the assassination was not necessary.  I guess humans and kitties will never completely understand each other, but  I still love her.
