It’s about time I get to write something again! Life has been very good here. Remember that lap thing I told you about last time? I did it again one more time, and I really liked it again that time. I know it made Mom happy. I like making Mom happy. I know it also makes her happy that I started sleeping snuggled up very close against her at night. I’m guessing she thinks it’s because I just want to be close to her, and I do, but honestly, it’s also because it’s been kind of cold at night, and Mom makes a really nice heater!
I’m getting smarter every day, if I do say so myself. That’s because I’m not a a kitten anymore, I’m all grown up now! A couple of weeks ago, I learned something really cool: I figured out how to open the kitchen cabinet under the sink. I managed to stick my paw in, and make it open a little ways before it banged shut again. It made a very interesting noise. I especially like doing this when I get bored with sleeping with Mom in the middle of the night, or really really early in the morning. It’s so fun!
And then, the other day, I figured out something even cooler! Mom was off on what she calls errands – I have no idea what that means, all I know is that when she does it, she leaves the house. I managed to get one of the cabinets all the way open, and I climbed inside. There wasn’t much that looked interesting in there, though, but I liked the feeling of being in a cave, so I decided to take a nap in there. I really liked it in there!
I heard Mom come home, and I heard her call my name, but I was so comfy in my little cave, I decided to stay in there a bit longer. Mom kept calling my name, and her voice got louder and louder, and started to sound a little bit funny, kind of shaky and not like anything I’ve ever heard from her. I figured the best thing to do was keep a low profile and just stay in my cave. Eventually, Mom stopped hollering, and finally she opened the cabinet door. I smiled at her – she found me! My Mom is smart, too! I got up and walked out of the cabinet, only to be swooped up by Mom and nearly being squished to death! She was crying and saying things like “oh my goodness, kitten, I thought I had lost you!” What??? Lost? I knew I wasn’t lost. I knew exactly where I was! Humans are so silly.
Mom says I took twenty years off her life that morning. And ever since then, I haven’t been able to get into the cabinets. Drats. I liked my little cave. And I’ll tell you something Mom doesn’t know, so don’t tell her: I had been inside that cabinet before…
Today, some strange things are happening here. Mom brought a big black box into the bedroom, and she’s putting some of her clothes in it. I don’t understand why, usually, she just wears the clothes, or else, they hang in the closet, which, by the way, is another place I like to explore that Mom doesn’t like me to be in. Anyway, this putting clothes in the box thing is a bit puzzling. But the big box looks like it might make a good napping spot, especially with all the clothes in there. I think I’ll give it a try.
