Can you see me now?
So I was havin a good day outside this morning…playing in my garden. Mom was watering and I yam thinkin…
‘This is a Great Day!’
Then Mom says, ‘OK Pluma, time to go in. I have to go to work.’
‘Noooo, I just got outside, I don’t want to go in.’
‘Sorry, I know you want to stay outside longer, but it is getting late and I have to open the store. You can stay home today and after Dad sleeps for a while he might bring you back out.‘
Then Mom PICKS ME UP AND CARRIES ME INSIDE!
Can you believe it? Ruins my whole day, and I decide to get even.
I chase her down the hallway and grab her ankle and put the bitey on her leg.
“Pluma, that is a BAD CAT!!! You can not bite me.’
Oh yes I can and I JUST DID. Now open this door and let me outside.
“Pluma, you are not going out right now. You do not make the rules, you are not in charge here.’
What! Not in charge? But I yam…I yam the CAT. The cat is always in charge.
Hope you are all doin fine, stayin cool and havin fun this summer,
Mom’s eye is healing so well that the human vet doc says she can have the other eye done on Monday, that way they can both heal together. This eye will be much simpler, no pesky cysts, just a cat-ar-act: she is not really lookin forward to this but feels it is the best thing to get it all done now and be done with it. So we are back to eye drops, eye patches and a cranky Mom. Dad, who just had 2 weeks vacation, (he calls it ‘work’ at home) now needs 3 more days off to take Mom to the eye vet and put eye drops every 2 hours, cook dinners and watch me play in the garden. His boss isn’t seeing it his way so may have to use the Family Leave Act, but that is mucho paperwork so
he is cussing and damning that is being debated and discussed, and plans made. Mom says we will work thru Saturday, then close til Thursday so ifen you need somethink come on in.
Several volunteer catnip plants have grown up between the patio bricks. As we need all the nip that will grow Mom lets them live there and when I am able to go outside I personally test each plant for nippy strength. Counting volunteers and planted catnips I have 11 large plants. That means 11 leaves to test everyday, although some plants need 2 or 3 leaves eaten to assure quality testing.
Because I have
had to nurse my cranky Mom been delighted to assist in helping with Moms recovery, there were several days that I NEEDED to visit my catnip plantation, if you know what I mean. And we have had company, Dad calls them relatives, for the last 2 weeks, so our house has been busy. We think we will be back to normal soon. The company leaves tomorrow; I will be able to come out from under the bed. Mom has her 2nd eye fixed on Monday and we should all be back at work on Thursday July 19th: that is Ladies Meeting Night, Miss Ann, who always brings me delicious treats will be teaching that nite.
Mom says we have been given some awards and as soon as her eyes are good enough to figure out what to do with then she will do that. I can’t wait!! I love getting things, although I don’t know what ‘awards’ are, maybe like treats or somethink.
Hi Effurrybody, PlumaB here,
1. We are back in the Funky Karma Shop, and I yam soooo happy to be back at my workins! It has been a difficult week at our house acouse Mom hadded her eye surgery, and I hadded to be the nurse for 3 whole days and nites. That was too much work for one cat. She sleeped alot, was always puttin eye drops in and wantin Dad to do something. I yam eggzausted!
2. then Dad’s family moved in to our house. They are in the guest room where I yam not allowed and in Dad’s room too! There are boys wif caps on their heads and I an ascarid of caps acouse someone hurted me when I was lost outside and that lousy person hadded a cap on. I had to hide under Mom’s bed all day and nite…Dad says somethin about a family reunion but I don know what that is. I yam gonna live at the shop furever, and nebber go back to that house wif all those people.
Dad says, “Pluma, why are you scared of people at the house and not scared of people at the store?”
“Because, Dad, the people at the store are mai friends, they pet me, I know them. the people in the house, I NEBBER SAW THEM BEFUR.”
“Well, Pluma, you better get used to them because they are staying for 2 weeks.”
“2 WEEKS! How long is that? The rest of my life? Til after the snow comes back? No I yam staying at the shop”
3. Lots of new fragrance and body oils in the shop this week. My friend Miss Ann will be in tomorrow wif Tarot Readings. Mom can almost see and hasn’t steped on my tail all day. I yam having tuna for lunch!
the gnomes are getting ready to party, the music is starting up…
The garden was watered, cut, pruned, weeded, decorated and in general, pampered. But it will have to grow alone for a few days, although Dad will water, because mom is having her eye surgery tomorrow morning and won’t be gardening for a while. The Funky Karma will be closed until thursday July 5th. There WILL be Ladies Meeting that night, topic will be, “The Power of Intention” This is gonna be good!!
Pluma giving Crystal Ball Readings…yep he can see the future.
“I can see parades, lights in the night sky and lots of good foods. Oh, it must be the 4th of July. Have a good time and be safe, see ya all next week.”
