Sometimes one has to do what one must do for amusement. This includes "rubbing your cat's ear" from a distance and then taking a photo so your hand looks giant and/or the cat looks very small.
Life is short -- live it up, people!

So this always never fails to make me laugh out loud: I flip on the bathroom light to find Cosmo lying on a rug, in the dark. What's he doing in there? It's not a very exciting place, and there are way more comfortable sleeping surfaces in other parts of my apartment. It's not warm, and even if it were, it seems like he'd loaf on the concrete floor. I ask him, but -- as of this writing -- he's offered no good explanation for his dark-bathroom getaways. So I look at him, laugh, and then go about my business.
Maybe I should try a nap on that rug. Perhaps it's like Aladdin's magic carpet and I'll have some kind of crazy flying dreams? Maybe.
|What I see when I flip on the light. Oh hai.|

I always smile when I see one of my cats leisurely lounging with a propped foot. I do the same thing ... except not in a cat bed. I kind of wish I had a human-sized cat bed like the one Cosmo has. I'd totally prop my feet.
Now you get some cat-feet eye candy.
Props to Cosmo and his coffee bean toes.

I work from home and stay pretty busy. This is why I need an assistant so I can stay on task and meet my deadlines. Cosmo helps me in that capacity. He's dependable and I know I'm his number one priority. I mean, look at that attentive face! Or he's sucking up because he wants to ask for extra vacation days. I told him every day for him is a vacation day, but he wasn't buying it. I think he's still holding a grudge because I wouldn't give him that 401K.

When I lie on the sofa, Phoebe lands in this position ... like within five minutes. She stretches her long, lean body on top of me, and reaches one paw toward my chest. And then she spreads her toes. She spreads her toes! I can't tell you how much much I adore this pose. Well, I could, but then this post would become awfully long, and you might start thinking, "This is all about cat toes?" Yes, friends ... it would be all about cat toes.

Cat litter is a necessity if you're going to share your home with felines, right? Right. And I like to keep things light, so that means no heavy litter or heavy odor. This is especially important to me now that I live in a small apartment. I'm a good little scooper, for sure, but odors can sometimes overtake the most vigilant of scoopers. The power of a cat's, um, output has magical abilities of intense odor release. It's like Harry Potter's cloak of invisibility --- Hairy Pooper's cloak of stinkability.
Tidy Cats 4-in-1 Strength LightWeight litter has now made the scene and tackles that stinky cloak once and for all! One of my cats' litter boxes is in my bedroom, which might make some a little nervous about unpleasant odors waking them up in the middle or the or giving them nightmares. I can tell you from experience that I haven't had any nightmares about giant litter-box clumps chasing me through the house. I'm pretty sensitive, too. Once someone in my house burned popcorn and I couldn't fall asleep because of the distracting stench. Burned popcorn cloak.
|Cosmo wants to know if dinners come in 4-in-1, too.|
Tidy Cats 4-in-1 LightWeight has four times the power of tackling the biggest litter box offenders: urine, feces, and ammonia odors, and helps create the tightest of tight clumps. This makes for a happy litter-box scooper!
I'll admit it: I'm a wimp when it comes to carrying heavy jugs of litter. Sometimes they even sit in my car's trunk until I'm ready to use them because I continue to put off hauling them inside the house. The LightWeight jugs are 50% lighter than the leading litter, making it a piece of cake to lift the jugs from the shopping cart, place them in the trunk, and then bring them indoors. In fact, I can carry one in each hand! If someone didn't know the litter was light, they'd think I had some major guns.
So try it for yourself and see what you think! Tidy Cats 4-in-1 Strength LightWeight litter was available in stores in February. You may as well grab two jugs while you're there -- I think you can handle it.

Ah, the kitty whisker ... so elegant, yet practical. My Cosmo's whiskers have such flair, especially when he flares them. Sometimes when he's sleeping, I go in for a closer look. Closer looks are not always met with pleasantries when he's awake.
And still closer. Look at those things! And then he's got the funky "off the side of the head" one that reminds me a little of the Frankenstein monster's bolts. Cosmo's no monster, although sometimes I'm afraid I'll wrap him up in a tortilla and eat him because he's so cute. I don't mean that at all in some kind of whacked-out way. Oh, you know what I mean.

Sometimes when I work at my kitchen table, I feel a strong presence infiltrating my personal-space bubble. Then I turn around and see the infiltrator with my own two eyes. I see the giant white whiskers that popped tiny holes in my bubble. Personal space means zilch to a cat. Personal-space bubbles are to be popped as easily as those blown through a wand on a warm spring day.
With cats, we live a bubble-less existence.

I bought this new bed for Cosmo yesterday, and he loves it ... as long as it's sitting flat up against me. I need some pants with a cat-bed attachment. Like something that'd connect to a belt loop. Now that's fashion-forward, right? I already have cat hair all over my pants, why not attach the whole cat?

And yet another chapter in the continuing saga of "The Case of the Shrinking Pillow" (see what I did there?). Last night I made it through an entire eight-hours with a full pillow all to myself. Can you imagine? I thought I was home free. Then I woke up to feed Cosmo and went right back to bed. When I awoke an hour later, my pillow had been inhabited by a large cat-loaf wearing a tuxedo. I didn't realize pillow parties were such fancy affairs! Tomorrow I'll wear a taffeta ball-gown to bed.
