It may not look like it in the photos I am about to share with you, but I have been very adventurous lately. Mom doesn’t know what has come over me. I have bolted out onto the front porch three times. One time Misty May, my nemesis, chased me back inside. The other two times, Mom shook the treat container, and I hurriedly reentered the house. Besides that, I have been venturing to the second floor.* She has found me there three times. She’s been so surprised each time that she has failed to get photos.

Without photo proof of these adventurous turns, I am sharing photos of how I usually spend my time…hanging out in the kitchen (where Mom works on our blog) and occupying Mom’s lap.






I am sorry the second photo is a bit over-lit and that you have to look at Mom’s wrinkly elbow. If you concentrate on my lovely eyes and gorgeous tortie furs, that elbow will just disappear.

I am sure that if my adventures continue, either Mom or I will be letting you know. In the meantime, you can find me napping on her lap or doing a purrfect four-paw knead on her thighs.
