Wordy Wednesday - Chica's 21st Birthday Week

Me Chica picking on Yoko again!
More stories for my birthday week.  As you can see from the pic above - I was a terror for poor Yoko when I was younger.  I was two when Mom and Pop added her to the household, thinking I would like a playmate - NOT!  I preferred to be the only cat and stalked Yoko whenever I could.  All I had to do was just sit and stare at her when she was playing with a toy I wanted and she would slink away scared to death!  I always got what I wanted. hehehe

I loved to play and had games I made up to play with Mom.  One was called Pennies!  Mom would slide a penny on the terrazzo floor from one end of the room to me and I would pounce on the penny and catch it.  It was like penny hockey!  I was good at it. Mom would keep them coming one after another!

Another game I played was catch - Mom would throw a jingle ball high in the air to me and I would jump up on my hind legs and catch it - almost every time!  I guess I was a bit of a jock then!

I also liked to play hide and seek with Mom.  She would go hide behind a door or someplace like that and call me.  I would slowly walk through the house looking for her, peeking behind things and under stuff until I found her.  She would jump out with a whoop and I would run and hide for her to find me. 

My favorite hiding place was the bathtub.  I would lay on the tub floor and wait for Mom to find me.  Sometimes she would be right there but stay quiet so I would lift my head up to peer over the tub ledge with just my ear tips and eyes visible!  She laughed when I did that and thought I was so smart and cute!  I am!

I only play for a few minutes at a time now but up until 2-3 years ago, I could still catch the balls Mom threw to me.  Now I just like to push them around the floor.


Me today - I would rather be quiet and nap!

Help yourself to ham apps and grab some bitty balls to play with.  We have plenty of food coming. Ya'll come back.  Do you guys have any questions for an ancient kitty like me?  I would be happy to answer your questions in the next post - fire away!

Are those super balls?????!!! We have those. Gramma used to play the penny game with Faith. Faith used to hide them all under the rug. Now we know that pennies are poisonous to cats so I don't get them anymore.

Marg said...

Wow, Chica, You were quite the athlete in your younger days. That is probably why you lasted so long. Plus all the good care from your Mom. Have a great day.

Happy 21st Birthday. That is a real milestone. M's first kitty lived to be 19 and and she thought that was old. You are looking good tho, Now start working on the next decade. Thanks for the birthday pawty.

You sound like you played more like a woofie than a cat, Chica! You must be a mighty dominant character, too, if you can cow another kitty with a single glance!

So how did you react to all of the other kitties as they came to live with you, too? Were you able to maintain your throne as Queen of the House?

Brian said...

I love those games pretty Chica! Penny hockey sounds like lots of fun!

meowmeowmans said...

Chica, we loved reading these wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Our question is: do you talk more than you used to? Our Sammy is about 18, and he is definitely more vocal now. Angel Graphite used to talk a lot, too.

Hugs!

Happy 21st birthday Chica, those sounded like fun games you made up for your Mom.

Oui Oui said...

You are just amazing Chica! Did you ever met a kitty who became your special friend? We had a kitty who came before, who for 11 years ignored all the other cats he lived with. Then one day the mom brought home a feral kitten and it was love at first sight! They were best friends and inseparable.

Shawn said...

Happy Birthday, Chica!!

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

We love your stories, Chica! Yummy fudz, too. We suspect that being feisty and active have helped you live a long life. (And getting your own way, too. MOL) To what do you attribute reaching 21 years young?

Laura & Taffy

PS: Thanks for the email.
