Welcome. Snoops here. Mom said that we could each write a post about whatever we wanted.
I want to tell you about a new game I discovered. If I put my paw under the edge of the water dish and push a little, I can make waves! I really like to watch them. The humans sometimes tell me to stop if any water gets out. (They should put less in, more often.)
But they like it a lot more than the game I played before. I would put my paw into a glass and see how far it would go in before it got wet. Sometimes the glass would tip over and lots of water would run out.
It was fun to see the water run out (but I had to be careful so my paws didn’t get wet). It’s their own fault. What else would I do with a glass of water that was too low to drink?
Remember how I said that the humans had to fend for themselves and learn how to catch mice? It’s been really slow going. I brought a mouse to Dad while he was on the computer and let it go so he could chase and kill it.
All he did was yell about how I should have killed it. What good would that have done? I already know how to catch mice.
Not only that, the humans are blaming us cats about some missing chocolate chips. It seems that somehow a bag got chewed open and half of them disappeared. I’d say that’s pretty circumstantial. They didn’t check for mice DNA or anything. Maybe one of the kids did it.
The beta female (we call her Blondie, B for short), has been laying on the sofa a lot recently. There was some kind of problem with her foot, and she had to have surgery. If there’s one thing we indoor cats like, it’s a human who can’t move. Especially in the cold weather.
The only unfortunate thing is that B had to use those clompy things to get around with. The ones that can smash a cat’s tail. I think they’re called crutches. But she got a cool scooter thing too. She puts her knee on it and walks with her other leg.
It’s a purrrrfect perch for a cat. And it’s padded!
Rumor has it that B won’t be couch-bound for too much longer. Good thing the weather has gotten warmer. It’s almost time for cat TV.
I think that’s about it for me.
Oh yeah. Mom won a cool cat mug from a blog called Cats at the Bar (The blog’s great. It’s run by a bunch of cats: http://catsatthebar.org/). I guess she wrote some kind of a poem or something. (It’s a limerick; her real poetry is really, really bad.) You guys seemed to like her other limericks (https://cat9984.wordpress.com/2014/08/25/doggy-doggerel/), so I thought you might like this one:
On a trip to the North for vacation,
Saw a cute cat who lived at the station.
He said, “Name is Orca
“I come from Majorca.
“I’d really like to have some libation.”
Time for my nap. Thanks for reading.
(B is still learning how to make good pictures. I think she’s making progress.)

Good writing, Snoops. Your water tricks are amazing. Be nice to B. To clomp around on those wood things is no fun. Ouch. And tell her that the pictures are getting nice.
Thank you. B is very good on the wooden things, but still wants to get rid of them. I will tell her about your compliment.
Thank you, Cat. Beta B needs to get back on the go, no?
Tomorrow’s the day. She also says thank you for your compliments.
I hope your household is better for all, my friend, because of it. 🙂
Congrats on winning the contest and mug!
Thank you! The cats have claimed the mug.
Hey Snoops!………….do you use a squeaky mouse with your catputer? & how do you type with those BIG paws?
Mom types for me. And I use the BIG paws to catch real mice.
