Caturday of Chica's 21st Birthday Week

Me as a young cat

One day until my official birthday!!!!!! I can't wait  for tomorrow but this whole week has been just super fun. 

Mom wanted me to tell you how feisty I still am. The other morning I was on the bed to wake Mom up and Yoko came up too. I didn't like that so I whapped her good. She surprised me and whapped back...next thing we know we are both whapping and growling at each other. We woke Mom up with all our commotion and both got put off the bed. It wasn't my fault!

Me now

 
We also had a big thunderstorm today and loud boom followed by a flash of lightning just outside the window really scared me.  Back when we lived in Florida, Mom and I were sitting on our lanai as it started to rain.  I didn't mind storms then so we stayed out in the porch.  Suddenly lightning hit the transformer right behind our house and made a huge ball of light that traveled down the wires away from us with the loudest  bang we ever heard!  Mom and I scrambled to get inside the house and I was very very skeered of storms since that day. (That ball of light blew up all the appliances inside all the houses on our street.)  Whenever I hear thunder, I crawl on my belly to the closest hidy place - under a bed or sofa.  If Mom is home I just go cower by her.  The storms here in the mountains are not so loud and violent so I do much better now.  Are you skeered of storms too?


We had some folks ask what food I ate after the last post about why I have lived this long.  Well, Mom tried cooking the food herself but none of us ate it.  So she feeds us Wellness canned food - no grain or Evo or Pet Guard.  She has to alternate the flavors since we are all very picky - especially me!  For dry which we don't get but a few as snacks, we like Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover.  Mom tried Wellness dry but we would not eat it.  Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and give us what we will eat.  I like my food with extra water to  soften it and with juice from the can on it.

I guess I should stop talking and let you all get to the munchies today - fresh salmon.  For games and toys - we have some that will sharpen you whapping and hiding skills!  Be sure to come back by on Sunday for the official pawty and don't forget to visit Derry and Sparkle too.  Enjoy!

Chica, I can't believe that you and Yoko still get into smacky paws fights at your age!

Gandalf is very, very askeered of thunderboomies. He runs to find a hidey hole as soon as he hears the first rumble and stays there until every last rumble has been gone at least an hour. Some Mancat he is! hahahaha! Grayson and Gracie stay out on the patio and enjoy the storm!

It's been a fun birthday week, Chica! And the big day s nearly here!

he he - love that you had a fight in mom's bed. M wouldn't be too happy either, but I think it's pretty cool. New Wake-up tactic for humans.

Eric and Flynn said...

Whapping for your birthday is lots of fun! Flynn doesn't like thunderboomies, but I, Eric, like to sit in the window and watch the flashes. Before we were born, the lightning hit the transformer outside our home 3 times and blew it to pieces. We have a pylon close to us and it used to strike there regularly and sometimes bounce off to the transformer. Mum says they must have done something because it hasn't done that for several years now, thank goodness.

Is it OK to tell the age of a girl cat after a certain point?
She might smack you...

Happy birthday, pretty Chica!

Marg said...
