Lilybits, not large, but in charge! 
S is for sorry. I am very sorry for not taking time last week to write about how silly or sassy we cats can be, or for that matter, soft. Did you know that cats have something like 155,000 hairs per square inch of their fur? No wonder we’re so soft!

T, on the other hand, is for trouble. Cats do have their troubles. Like when it’s gray most of the winter in Michigan and I can’t find a sunny spot to curl up and rest. It’s like my sunny spot up and disappears for several months each year. Mom says I should be thankful there have been more sunny days than usual this winter, even though it’s been cold.

I also have tummy trouble, which may have something to do with inflammation in my digestive system. Therefore, I receive a medicine “treat” once a day, thinly disguised inside a pill pocket. And I am willing to eat it—this is how desperate I am for the rare treats, which I receive these days due to a doctor’s evil command. Mom also says that I am partially responsible for being what Dad refers to as a “greedy guts” and wolfing my food down too quickly sometimes, so that, let’s just say, it makes a quick reappearance.

Mom thinks I should address the times I actually cause trouble, but I find it difficult to recall any instances. That situation with the lamp up at the cabin a couple of years ago she mentioned? Honestly, when it crashed to the floor from the nightstand and I looked up at her innocently and licked my front paw, I had no idea how it happened. In fact, I was trying to convey, “Can you believe that just happened? Who did this? Not me!”

Mom says that guy I was referring to as “Not me” really doesn’t exist. I’m going to have to come up with better excuses in the future for staying out of trouble. Below, I hope you will enjoy this video on how cats need to take care of their humans. Notice how smoothly I changed the subject? Hopefully I’m not in any trouble now!


  1. It would be hard to stay mad you Lilybits. With that sweet adorable face, I'd want to squeeze it all day. My dog has knocked over and broken several things, but somehow I managed to stay mad at her for a while.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Miss J'nell. And you are right. I have perfected that adorable-ness that keeps Mom from staying mad at me. But occasionally she tries to prove she's in charge by hanging something over my head. Yeah, like that's going to work!

  3. Gracie wishes her human would FINALLY get the message that she would like the snow removed from her deck. And her lawn. Every time she asks to go out she finds that, yet again these simple requests have been ignored. She is so very, very, very bored.

    1. This is one time of year Lilybits doesn't try to make a dash
      out the door. It's been so cold here! Lily thinks Gracie is
      brave wanting to venture outside in the snow.
