Mom's little gentleman

Mom went to the vet this morning to buy me some more food and treats of course. And of course everytime she goes, she HAS to get me something special because I'm a perfect little gentleman. Check out my new little bandana! It has little mice eating cheese! Mom couldn't resist (and the money goes toward a good cause).

Mom's promise...

Mom made me a promise this evening. She promised me that I will remain her one and only furchild furever. She will not bring in any other cats, rats, dogs, or anything else into our home for as long as I am here. She said she wouldn't even talk about it. She does not want to cause me any sort of grief whatsoever. I think my mommy loves me - even if I tried keeping her out of the apartment for about 10 minutes when she came home from work tonight. It's bad enough that she leaves me for any amount of time let alone bringing another critter into the picture.

Old pics!!! Beginning of university life..

Monique: I found some old pictures from 2005 when I first started my university endeavor. (For the record, I'm now in my 5th and final year... at least for now, depending on what the future holds for me. :) ) Anyway, I dug up a few pictures which made me laugh (and shudder...) from my 1st year when I was living in residence. I sometimes miss the silence (I lived on the top floor which was nicknamed "the morgue" because it was poorly lit and a 24/7 quiet hours floor. Most students were Law, mature, or graduate students.) Anyway, I missed Fluffy too much, and I wanted him with me, so I only stayed in residence one year. Well, enough ramblinjg. Enjoy these HORRIBLE photos.. lol..

My first day living there. Don't I look happy. ;)

Group photo. You can barely see me, but I'm behind the guy in the middle front row wearing a cowboy hat.

A visit from some friends from my home town. Sadly, this friend has moved to the other side of the country. We had a bit too much to drink (and we didn't even hit the bars yet! haha)

Again.. my friends from home. We were buzzing... lol...

Happy birding!

Monique: I have been dying to get around to do some birding, so I made it a point to get up with the birds (lol) and go. I woke up at 5:30am and arrived at my destination around 6:30 am. The birds were in full force and just so overwhelming because there were so many of them!!! I'm sure I stayed in the same area for at least 30 mins. It was great to see all the beautiful Warblers out. And of course I saw a bunch of Sparrows and quite a few birds I was unable to identify. I did find two particular birds that especially caught my interest and I made it a point to consult my field guide at once. One was a male Hairy Woodpecker (I think.. I was unable to classify him as anything else!) and I became especially excited when I THOUGHT I saw an Eastern Towhee, but it could have just ended up being an American Redstart. Either way, I was excited (it doesn't take much for me, lol)..

I returned to my spot this afternoon, but I didn't find anything of interest.

Anyway, I had an amazing time, even if I was alone. Nature is SO beautiful at 6:30am, and it allowed me to recharge my "me" time.

Princess Fluffy?!?!?!?!?!? MOM!!!

Hello my readers,

I know it's been a while since I've posted. Nothing much is going on right now. The weather has been poopy lately (rain, cloudy, etc) so I've mostly been sleeping. Mom is back to work full time, so there really isn't much else to do around here. Also, Mom ran out of ideas for toys (not that I would play with them anyway!!)

In other news, my Auntie and her furkids (pet rats.. which Mom is very fond of) recently moved (she used to live in our building). We both miss having her around very much, but she moved to a gorgeous house in the country and appears to be much happier there. Mom wanted her to take us with her, but I don't think there would be enough room for us. MOL.. I reminded Mom that we mustn't be selfish by wishing she was still here. She said that she will still come by to take care of me, so that makes me happy. Besides, she's not THAT far away - could be a lot worse.

Here are a few silly pics Mom took of me. The "Princess Fluffy" one is of me wearing the tiara Mom wore at her high school prom 10 years ago!
