Internation Box Day

Thank you Zoolatry for this graphic and the idea behind
International Box Day.  I love boxes of all kinds and
try to get into all different type of boxes even little ones
that hold my Mom's skin creams.  I can not fit more than a
hand so Mom provides better boxes to hang out in.
This box is the purrfect size for me to fit in and explore
with a purr pad as a comfort and interest item.  The first
thing I do with a box is do a full sniff inspection to find
out everything about this box.  Each box is different and has
to pass my test before I deem it acceptible.

I get new boxes every once in a while because the
old boxes become stale after some time.  This gives
variety since my Mom says there is not enough room
in the home to have a lot of boxes.  I say the more boxes
the better and I usually go back to things I ignore after
some time. Mom says that I do have boxes in the house just
different ones that appear one at a time.

Have a Happy International Box Day

Wordy Wednesday

I did not have to go anywhere yesterday as I was acting
very happy and purry.  The yaking scared my Mom, but I showed
her how good I was by having an extended purring session with
her by laying on top of her and not letting her get up.  I put my
paws on her to hold her down.  Once she soaked up my warm kitty
heat she knew I was find.  I then did some rolls that she loves to see.

I even got a little bit naughty and started to scratch the carpet.
Once I did this naughty thing Mom knew that I was going to be
fine without having to be checked out.  I told Mom that it is okay
to worry about me, but that I have signals if I am not well and that
my last V-E-T visit I passed with flying colors except for needing to lose weight

Tortie Tuesday

I am on the top of the computer chair in order
to reassure her that I am feeling ok after having
a little bit of yak this evening.  I had eaten
really fast and then started running after eating.
She gets so worried over these things, but I said I
was just going real fast and did not chew my food all
the way.  This Tortie Tuesday she will keep an eye on
me to see if I yak again before making the dreaded appointment
to the V-E-T.  So  I am going on the chair to say that I am well and
there is no need to go to the V-E-T. After mewing for a treat
I think I can duck the appointment.

P.S. Mom was happy today because my tail was high and I purred and purred.  She was just extra worried with the way I was yakking.  It was really loud and slimy now that I am okay I am not going
to the V-E-T.  She always likes to wait to see how my tail is before making a decision it
is my indicator of wellness.  PURRS Willow

Mighty Monday

I was a mighty hunter and took some cards from my Mom
and rolled in them to show my supreme ability at getting prey 
  away from the human.  Paper is my prey most of the time
and I take great joy in biting and ripping them into little bits.
I took one of the cards and really started to bite into
because they are very tasty.  Mom has to hide cards
                             that are important to her so I do not bite and rip those
                             cards.  With my love of paper it is important to keep these
                                      hidden so they are not attacked by me.

This was fuzzy picture taken by my Mom, but if you biggify
the picture the evidence of my prey's bite marks is obvious.
I love destorying paper and even decaptitated and destroyed
two paper people that Mom gave me so I go after the 'appropriate' paper.

Gotcha Day Presents

First I want to thank all the cats and even some dogs that
came to my Gotcha Day Party.  This has been the biggest  and best party
that I have ever had for my Gotcha Day. 
Sadly there are no pictures of me opening my presents with
my nudging Mom to get it done so there is only the pictures
of the presents.

Even my Mom was surprized when we opened the box
there were two purr pads that came from Dr. Foster's and
Smith.  So one was put inside my new box that the
presents came from.  Having a padded box makes it
more fun for me and it keeps the box longer in the home.

I got a purr pad to put in my castle with the other tortie colored
pad put inside my other bed in Mom's room.  These pads are
always being changed so I will not get bored looking at one
of the pads.  The purr pad feels a little differen there are times
I like it and other times that it gets kicked off of the castle bed.

Finally there was a surprize Mom got me a small little
bed for the living room.  She said that a different bed
would be good to have so that I have more options.
I have investigated it and I am unsure of this present.
I have gone on it, but it seems small.  I will probably go
on it, but right now I am making like it is not my favorite thing.

Award-Gotcha Day Edition

Welcome to My Gotcha Day celebration and
enjoy playing with one of my stash of toys. My Mom
likes to buy me a lot of toys.
Mom had always wanted to have a cat and when she  was younger,
but she never was able to get an animal.  When she was in her Senior
year of college there was visiting Theapy Animals that came to relieve
the stress of  college.  There was one cat that came to that was a part
of the program and she knew that she had to get a cat.  So when
she got her BA she looked on the innernets for a cat and found me. Willow.

I got the Kreativ Blogger Award from Athena The Torbie Cat and
wanted to tell 5 facts about my Gotcha Day
1. Purrfect Companions said that I came from a home
with an older lady that had a lot of cats that knew she could not care for me.

2.  She called Purrfect Companions to hellp get me into a foster home where I
was found at an adoption fair by my Mom who told me she had seen
my picture on the internet as being up for adoption.

3.  My name was Willow before I was Gotcha'd and Mom really liked it and
kept it as my forever name since she thought I looked very decliate and 'willowly'

4.  My half mask gave me my first nickname of Phatom because I
looked like I was from the Phatom of the Opera.

5.  When I got home Purrfect Companions said to keep me to one
room, but I wanted out and I took over the total of my home.

Since this is my Gotcha Day I am going to give this award to any cat
that wants to take it in honor of this special day.

I hope you enjoy my Gotcha Day with toys, fish flakes, sardines,
fresh water, niptinis, and catsip.   This is also very random since I
am very EXCITED to be throwing such a big Gotcha Party

I am invitating every cat to my Gotcha Party tomorrow June 25.

Where I will tell about how I landed up in my home with
my Mom.  I just wanted to make sure to purr to everyone
that I am so excited to be celebrating this 8th Gotcha
Day with my Mom with all of you.

Back of Disrespect

I was caught by my Mom because I just could not resist
going to her after a time of hiding.  I Mew-Mew-Mewed
during the time when she was cleaning and then showed her my
backside  and walked away from her in a huff. 
 I did end up totally forgiving her for her rude behavior
and stayed on her for a purring session.  I love my
Mom even when she is doing these weird human things
that a Cat like myself could take care of on her own.
Purr-chirp what else can you do with them?

Laser Defense

I have a feeling that my Mom is going to clean my tushy
because she saw a bit of *poop* hanging there.  I can sense
when she gets this way since I have rubbed onto the carpet before
and even though I feel better afterward it is still rude of her to do this.
Love can be a pain sometimes and this is why my lasers are going
to stay on ALERT for a time until Mom gets bored.

Tortie Colored Tuesday

I love my Tortie Colored blanket that Mom got me
and use it as a security blanket when I go to the V-E-T, 
I hug onto the blanket during these exams.  Before
it was a real big deal and now I can really hold onto
it and be safe from the V-E-T.
I learned a secret that my Mom has sent for
a purr pad and sleeper for my Gotcha Day on June 25, 2011.
I am awaiting the box and gift, but I will try to act
surprized because I do not want her to be sad about me
knowing about my gift before the right time.

careful that I do not hurt my little head when doing that

Cosy Sunday

I am having an easier Sunday than normal so 
I declared it to be a Cosy Sunday.
Becoming one with the bed is the best thing to do
on a Sunday and the best way to make your
Easy Sunday even Cosier.

It becomes blissful to get into this position on the bed  by your Mom's leg
and justlet all the worries go. Hope every cat has a happy and
Cosy Sunday

Couch Balance Beam

The edge of the couch is a good way to get from
one end of the living room to the other.  I like to
take this scenic route to get to the lamp when
it turns on. Sometimes I lose focus and start
to look around and right now the ground is more
interesting now than lamp tanning.

Floofy Friday

I am getting ready for a mostly relaxing weekend by
starting to take it easy today.  I have a scheduled
spa weekend where my Mom is going to do my
teeth because I have a stinky breath.  Now I am
going to rest on the bed before the spa treatment.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for the food service that I get from
my Mom that when my dry food dish looks like this
I get a refill.  I also have a variety of stinky goodness
with sardines and lobster in the cans.  It is premo
and I finish it unlike some of them that dried out
too quickly to taste good.My Mom did research to find the
 food that I would love
.  I am also thankful for the tortie colored carpet because
I can decide to catoflague or I can expose my bright
white tummy  for the world to see when I want
attention.  This gives me an undercover mode and
a you just got home and it has been forever since
I saw you mode.

Tummy Tuesday

 I am getting very bold as I get older where
I try new things that I had never been able to
do before.  I managed to lay on my back with my
head over the side over the bed.  These
antics worry my Mom who does not want me to fall.

I looked at her and told her that I use my tail to keep
 my balance so that I do not fall off the bed.  I trust
Mom to make sure that I am safe so I would not
fall off the bed.

Monorail Monday

Purring and fur blushing a thanks to every cat for
their nice comments about my balance on the chair.
I am very careful when I go up on the chair and make
sure to hug the sides so I do not fall.  I like trying these
things even though it scares my Mom that I might get
hurt, but I am stubborn as a cat that knows what
to do.  Right now I want to be up on the chair
as a Monorail Cat.

My Computer Chair

I claimed the computer chair as mine when I marked
it with my claws and played with the pieces of
the armchair.  Mom knew it was mine. 
A pillow case was put on top of the computer chair
so there could be no more damage done when
I wanted to get on top of it and rest.

It is one of my special places so I need to do my
kneading of the spot very carefully before resting
on top of my computer chair.

Curious Box

I had seen my Mom using this box and I wanted
to see what it does.  It was not fun so I decided
to smell the rest of the room to see if there was
anything of interest.  When there was nothing
I stretched out to rest next to the bland box.
While the box like thing turned out to be a dud
I did end up getting a real good stretch.
So it was not a total lost

Mussed Tummy Fur

I am having a bad fur day where I can do nothing
to stop the Tummy's fur from being Mussed.  Instead of
trying to fix it I thought I would just reach high into
the air and relax in a way that only a cat can.
Sometimes when things do not work out it is best
to take a break and just have some fun with
Mussed Tummy Fur.

Tawdry Tail

I have a confession, I like to wag my tail a lot
 and that is why I am hiding my head in shame.
I know as a respectiable cat that I should not
be wagging it in such a manner, but I enjoy wagging
it so much.  I even wag it as a game with my Mom
where she pats her hand down on the ground
and I wag my tail the same number of times in response.
I hope this still means that I can be called
a Cat.

Whoops Wednesday

Uh-Oh Mom saw me get on the open drawer.
She said that I should not do this since it is dangerous
and I could fall and get hurt.  I told her that
she did not close the drawer in time and it
was an open invitation to go up here.

Once I was up I had to stick my paws to see what
was in the drawers and see if I could open it more.
Sadly this thing is blocking any movement so I was
only able to just stick one paw through the drawer.

Tortie-Toesie Tuesday

In this picture I am showing off the mani-pedi I got on
Monday because my nails were causing accidental scratches
 when I got up from laying on my Mom.  I was very good
 this time and only put up a couple of meow protests because
I really felt I needed them done.  I even let my Mom give me an extra
little spatreatment of spritz of cat bath to clean up my arms.

Coloration Study

My Mom has been trying to see if she could get
better pictures of my colors because she says that
my color blender has not stopped.  She is convinced
that my colors keep changing.

I indulge her in this because I am more Autumn in
color than I used to be.  Sometimes it is best
to let the humans be weird and let them observe
you.  Do you let your parents do weird things
like a color study?

EZ Sunday

I am going to be purrsuading my Mom into giving
me a lot of chin scratches in order to achieve a restful state
this Sunday.  I love to get petted there because
it puts me in a very relaxed and EZ mood.

Toy Trap

Lately I have been tricking my toys.  Even with this pillow
toy it is important to give the toy a sense of security
before you pounce and lick the toy 
Toys tend to disappear if you are too fast with them
and this way I can lick and play with these toys
longer if I am gentle and then attack them.

Virtual Belly Rub

I am positioning myself for a belly rub by moving 
to an optimial belly position.  By laying on the side
I am hoping for a session of belly rubbing that ends 
with possession of the hand. 
Here is a close up of the belly with a little
bit of my pink stomach showing from under
the white floof.  I am offering free virtual
belly rubs for anyone interested.

Toesday-Thursday Edition

 I take good care of my feet maintenance
by cleaning each foot making sure to get between 
each toe.  With tortie paw pads each paw has
a different taste. 

I got my Mom to hold onto my paw so more of the
pads will be shown and the result after I had finished
cleaning.  For a beauty secret I put a little white floof between
the toes to draw attention to the tortie paw pads

Wordy Wednesday

I like to grab onto Mom when I lick her because
it gives me control on when I had enough of being petted. 
The Human Doctor did not have an answer, but
Mom was happy that he would continue to look to find 
out what is wrong. Purrrrrr to all of you for your concern.
