Hide n Seek.........by Diane Ogden

Bob has been living with Gracie Allen the 7 lb. Chi-Pom and Lucy Lou the beautiful but very shy rescue cat I have had for 2 years this week.  
Bob tends to be a young man-boy cat with a need for action and a need to be the dominant animal in this equation.  That being said, Bob has to stay in the master bedroom all day while I am at work.  The other two get the rest of the house and sadly Bob, if he can think at all, figures he is the only one of the three that is quarantined therefore he is starting to hide in the morning.  This morning I was calling and calling is name but no answer.  I scanned the apartment and found this: 

  I guess he figured if he couldn't see me, I couldn't see him!!  WRONG!! 
I make sure he has toys, a nice seat by the window, food, water, and sometimes even the TV is on low so he doesn't feel alone.  And catnip!

More Cat Tales later.....

Bob the Cookie Thief!............by Diane Ogden

 This is a serious case of wanting the last cookie in the bag.  I am thinking I need to get Bob some sweet treats.  He found a chocolate "crumb" on the counter and scarfed it down faster than I could get to it. No  worries, it was microscopic.

    This is the beginning of my crustless pie.  I turned my back for a minute and Bob was on it!  I got him some treats to redirect his attention because I do not like hair in my pie.   He doesn't mind but I do...

Super Bowl Bob......................by Diane Ogden

Bob tried to get into the SuperBowl.  He sat on his favorite spot, the cable box.  It blows out some heat and he likes that.  I need to get him a heated bed. 

I was working on my computer while I watched the SuperBowl when Mr. Bob jumped up on my lap and then scooched his way farther and farther up my lap.  He prefers to get up by my face. He then puts his paws on my cheeks.  It's the darndest thing I have ever experienced with a cat.  In fact it is getting hard to sleep because at night he scooches up up up onto my chest and neck area.  Then he kneads my chest with his paws which have very sharp nails.  I have to put a blanket between me and his paws so he can knead and I wont experience pain as well as being awake too long.  When persons are awake too long they rarely go back to sleep for a few hours. Bob isn't a person, so he goes directly back to sleep.  Not mwah!

We're all good.  More later.......its a bit quiet.  I think its because its WINTER.  I set him up by the windows yesterday to watch the latest blizzard snow storm.  He didn't seem too interested. And for the record I wasn't either.  8"'s.   Maybe that is why.
