Tuxie Tuesday Gotcha Day
Here I am resting up in my comfy chair, getting ready for my Gotcha Day Party, which is starting right now. One year ago Mom got home from work and called my foster Mom, who loaded me up in a PTU and brought me over to my new home. I was set free in my "safe room" because my foster Mom was afraid that having a whole house to roam around in might blow my mind, as I had been locked up in one small room for six months. As soon as my foster Mom left and I discovered that I was staying, I wanted out. My new Mom opened the door and let me explore the whole house. I have had the run of the place ever since.
Everyone is welcome to come party beginning right now. Tonight we just have drinks and the buffet available, but there will be plenty of food tomorrow. Mom is staying home all day, so we have a human slave at our disposal for the whole party. For drinks we have niptinis, blue gizzies and meowgaritas, with Russianless white Russians for the kittens and water for those who want to keep their wits about them. For snacks we have Temptations, Greenies, Party Mix and nip treats. For those who want something a bit more substantial, there is the Herman Buffet: Kitten Chow, Purina One for sensitive systems, Green Pea and Duck (grain free) and Friskies Seafood Sensations for the dry food; the canned food selections are Turkey Florentine and Ocean Whitefish and Tuna with gravy. Um, sorry, I already licked up all the gravy.
We can basically do anything we want, but Mom has a few ground rules.
Karen Jo: Just a couple. Please, no THoE between 2:00 am and dawn. You are welcome to play the stereo, the CD player and the radio, but please not too loud.
All right, lets get to it. We have plenty of music, a whole bucket of toys, food and drink and lots of places to crash. There are two couches, a table with a big cushion and a soft throw on it, a comfy chair, two more chairs with cushions, and my platform in the living room. There is a comfy chair and a couch in my "safe" room. There is a rocking chair, a computer chair and my Mom's bed in her room. The whole house, except for the kitchen is carpeted.
Karen Jo: All the kitties and woofies who can fit are welcome to share my bed with me and Herman. Just remember that the space right next to my chest is reserved for Herman. If you eat up all the food, you are allowed to wake me up at oh-dark-thirty, but I will go right back to bed after filling the food dishes. Breakfast will be served after dawn.
All right! Let's party!
Hahaha! You kitties have good appetites. We got Mom up at oh-dark-thirty to fill up the food dishes. All the dry food needed filling up. Then we let her sleep until sunup. Now its time for breakfast. Mom is making kitty-sized omelets. Put in your order for omelets with tuna, bacon, ham, tuna or chicken, or any combination you like. To drink we have fresh water out of the faucet or tuna juice or milk. We are going to keep her busy. Once we have eaten our fill, we will let her go back to sleep until we want the wand toys to come out. For a special bonus we have SNOW! The back yard is safe for any kitties or woofies who want to go out and roll in the snow or eat it or throw snowballs. There isn't much, but it looks like there is more on the way. Mom has plenty of fluffy towels to dry you all off when you are done outside. More fun is coming when Mom wakes up again.
