Lake and Skye in… the camera strap. (tuxedo cat update)
ZZZZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZ Z Z Z Z ZZ …… Z….?
Blink… blink blink…. blinkblinkblink!!!
Lake – “HEY!!!!! Now THAT looks like a mighty fine cat toy if I do say so myself!”
Me – “Hey! Good morning sleepy head! Can I get a picture of you? My blog buddies have been asking for an update on my two favorite cow kitties! Hold still now… puuurrrrrfect…. wait!!! HEY!!!!”
“Nomnomnomnomnom….” (yank! twist! double yank! triple twist! camera wiggle x 10000000)
Me – “AARG!!! Fuzzy! No Lake, hang on! Gimme that strap…”
Skye – “WHAT! Is the meaning of this racket?!
Can you two not take note that I am catching up on my beauty sleep? Last night was a long haul you know. Dark… cats… we rumble at night but MUST sleep by day. PLEASE do your best and keep it down to a dull roar, yes?!”
Me – “Lake! Perfect! FREEZE!”
Lake – “Ok, ok, ONE pose! I can do this! Maybe…. oohhhhh it’s so HARD TO NOT MOVE! Hurry please! That camera strap looks so yummy….”
Skye -”Ppppffft! So easily entertained you two are! Why I oughta… yaaaawnnn… zzzzzzzz.”
Lake – “OK! We’ll keep it down! I need one more round at that camera stra…”
…ap. Ah… another day… ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ”
Me – How do I possibly put into words what these two tuxedo cats are doing to my life? Oh my.
We all have stress in our lives, no matter what our situations are. It’s so easy to get caught up in utter nonsense that just doesn’t matter.
What brings me out of that nonsense are my two therapists, Lake and Skye.
I have a confession though. They are never called that. Wanna know what slips out instead?!
I’m sorry kitties, for ruining you with baby talk names! But… it is what it is.
Dear Lakey and Girly Girl… and then there’s… (get ready for it) Meat & Potatoes (big guy) and Carrots (little girl). Forgive me, cats!
Anyway, any cat or pet person knows what I’m talking about. The unconditional love these two offer is unexplainable. Any stress you’ve felt a moment ago just melts away when one comes hopping on your lap for a cuddle or stretches in front of you with a quirky pose. They know what they are doing!
I doubted myself when I first got them. Here we are, in the brink of summer where we could romp all over the land, and then we get two kittens that need us. Where’s the sanity in that?!
It soon became apparent that we could incorporate them with our travels. They did so exceptionally well when we took the cats camping! We got them use to the trailer before hand, and I’m telling you, the trailer is like their 2nd home. They adored it and had it better than in the house when we could turn on the air conditioner for them during a mini heat wave.
Even a month has made them so much more mature. They know where home is, who we are, and have officially discovered all the nooks and crannies in the house. Nothing makes me laugh more than when one comes around a corner FULL of dust on their face. They are housecleaners too it appears.
As for sleepers? Weeeelllll…..
During our camping trip, we discovered they like to ZOOM first thing in the AM. Picture a hot wheels car being let go at top speed and racing across one single track so fast it’s a blur.
These two discovered the wonderful new adventure of ZOOMING across the trailer each morning. And it didn’t matter what was in their way.
At one point with the ZOOM going on, I’m laying there killing myself with silent laughter thinking my son was sleeping, but he ever so quietly got up, went to the bathroom and emerged with two shirts wrapped tightly around his head. Then silently laid down and…
ZOOM ZOOOM ZOOOOOOM HEAD ZOOOOOM ZOOOM ZOOOOOOM
“Mom… I want to go home…”
Thanks for asking about the cats! I’ll have a chat with them about a more regular feature as they tell their story in their own way. Stay tuned for more cat chaos….
coming ZOOM! (sorry, had to)
