Intruder, Intruder!

You will not believe what happened to me last week! Mom was in Chicago on business and Dad was at work...and someone BROKE INTO OUR HOUSE!!! It was right in the middle of the day and they busted the back door open with a crowbar! It scared me so bad! Buster didn't seem too upset by it, but Leroy and I were really scared. Leroy was gated in the bathroom and I hid somewhere pronto! I can't share my hiding spot with you - just incase I ever need to use it again. Mom and Dad don't even know where it is, but it's a good one. When Dad got home he looked for me everywhere, but I was too scared to come out. Then lots of people started coming over and it made me even more scared. Everyone was calling my name - searching inside and outside. Dad said Mom was freaking out in Chicago and that I better come out, but I just couldn't. A couple men in uniforms were even looking for me. Mom said that was really nice of them and that I should have come out. Once most of the people left, I did finally come out. Even though Mom was certain I got outside, I had been in the house the whole time.

It took me a few days to get back to my normal self but I feel pretty good now. A nice man came last week to install something called a security system. I'm not sure what that is, but I get the feeling it's a good thing.

I'm also going to contact this company to see if they can make me a set of these in kitty size. Or maybe some Chinese throwing stars... It's such a tough decision.

2011 In Review

Well, it has been quite a year! It was not too far from this time last year that I started growing kittens in my belly. They were really cute, but I'm not going to do that again; Ginger and Christopher made sure of that. I got here April 13th, 2011 and I've had the full run of the house for close to five months now. I felt a little like a third wheel when I was let into the rest of the house with Buster and Leroy. Buster told me pretty quickly that he was the numba 1 gangsta in the house. And as tiny as Leroy is, he really scared me. I'm still a little apprehensive of him, but I'm not as scared anymore.

As you can see above, I do enjoy some occasional time on the back porch! The sun is nice. (If you look closely, you can see me sticking my tongue out.)

About a month ago something really exciting happened. Buster ended up with giardia. Okay, okay - Ginger and Christopher did not think this was cool, but it worked out fantastic for me! Buster had to be quarantined to the bathroom for a couple weeks. While he was there, I took the opportunity to really come out of my shell a bit. In addition to playing with some more toys, I also started helping myself to a couple Christmas ornaments off the tree. They are all so beautiful hanging still; they are even more fantastic in motion sliding across the floor. Oh! And you should have seen the look on Ginger's face when she turned around and saw me flying out of the middle of the tree. That was priceless. I also started hopping up in the bed in the morning to say good morning to Ginger and Christopher.

The downside of Buster's quarantine was that Ginger and Christopher took that opportunity to put me on a diet! ~gasp~ I should have seen it coming - they have been calling me chunky monkey for a bit now. I just love food so much.

I did feel pretty special when I got to experience my first real Christmas last week! I got my very own stocking complete with treats (low calorie, but I can't complain too much...they are still tasty) and TOYS! Buster and I got a bed that we are supposed to share, but he has been sleeping in it most of the time. That's okay - I still love the old bed and my BOX.

(ginger ordered some vases from cb2 in november - i helped myself to the box - she hasn't had the heart to take it away from me yet. i sleep on it every day. i wonder how long this can last?)
