Getting a little freaked out

Today my computer is giving me safety messages for both BittyPals and Cat Scouts.  I don’t like that this is happening and I am worried.


Wow! What Weather!

Today we had a severe thunderstorm including straight line winds.  There are trees down all over and several power outages.

Power was off here around 3:30 p.m. but was back on before the huMom got home.  I was still very scared.  There are lots of trees down along the street were we live and one even fell on a house.  Gosh, I hope nobody got hurt.

Check WLFI here in Lafayette, IN for more information.  I am sure it will be on the news tonight and tomorrow.

Thankfully, the huMom made it home safe on the bus and she was really worried about me.  She even gave me hugs and treats.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Fall Down Go Boom

That’s what my human typist did today at work.  She tripped over a power jack and fell forward.  Her knees are sore, but nothing is broken.  She was allowed to leave work early so that she could get home and take some pain reliever, put ice on her knees and basically rest up for the next day.

She really feels embarrassed and her pride is a little bit dinged but she is okay.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Memorial Day

This Monday the United States celebrates Memorial Day.  There are picnics, family get togethers and the biggest racing event in my home state, The Indianapolis 500.  Since my human and I live close enough to the track we can’t watch it live as it happens.  We watch the replay.

Today was a rough day at work for my human.  It started later than usual and she just couldn’t seem to get caught up no matter what.  When she gets hot, tired, thirsty and totally frustrated she wants to cry.  At least tomorrow should be kind of fun for her.  She is volunteering at the Round the Fountain Art Fair for 1 hour.  Then she plans on grocery shopping and possibly doing laundry and some cleaning since public transportation doesn’t run on Monday and she doesn’t have to be at work until Tuesday afternoon.

Anyway, hugs and purrs, Ali

Time to Celebrate

This Sunday the 12th is my selected birthday.  When my human adopted me she didn’t know the exact day of my birth so the 12th was chosen.  This year it also happens to be Mother’s Day.

Yesterday at work the social committee gave all the women flowers in celebration of Mother’s Day.  Since my human wasn’t going straight home she gave hers away to someone else.  There are still some left and she just might bring some home.

Cuddle with your human(s), purr and be extra cute this Sunday for your human mommy.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

It’s May!

Yesterday was May the 4th, also known as Star Wars day.  The human typist had a demo at Meijer and some of the employees were wearing their Star Wars t-shirts.  The demo went really well as she sold a lot of product and one of the samplers said it was the best sample ever.

It was also Kentucky Derby day.  Wow, what a finish.  The horse that actually crossed the line first was disqualified so the 2nd place horse was declared the winner.  The odds on that horse were 65 to 1.

Today the Cat Scouts are having their Cinco de Mayo and birthday party.

Tomorrow the human typist has a funeral to go to, she still has to go to work and she needs to pick up her prescriptions.  She would have done it yesterday except her bus only runs once per hour so she would have to wait another hour for something that may only take a few minutes.

Happy May, hugs and purrs, Ali

Easter Musings

Today is Easter Sunday.  Easter is a Christian Holy Day celebrating Christ rising from the dead.  Easter is also a pagan holiday celebrating spring and new birth.  Somehow the Easter Bunny, eggs, chocolate and dressing up all got mixed in.

Update on the human.  Her mammogram came out clean and she came in 5th in the biggest loser contest.  She got a gift card.

Today at Cat Scouts we are having an all day brunch and egg hunt.

Be good, love your human and try not to eat any lillies.

Hugs and purrs, Ai

April Fool’s Day

It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted.  The human has been busy working and doing her walking workouts.  She has a walking dvd and walks 1 mile when she can.  She is doing a weight loss challenge.  This week she didn’t gain any weight but also didn’t lose any weight.

Tomorrow she has a mammogram.  It’s been a year and this will be her first 3-d imaging.  She did check with her insurance and it should be 100% covered.  Her supervisor knows she will be late to work tomorrow as she filled out the paperwork about 2 weeks ago.

Just to be silly today she wore her pink bunny ears.  Her co-workers thought they were cute and it made a lot of them smile.

So Happy April!  Hugs and purrs, Ali

Weird day today

The human had her taxes done this morning.  She owes the federal government a small amount and is getting some back from the state.   Then she went to work.  At approximately 2:40 p.m. all the electricity went out and everyone was sent home shortly before 3:00 p.m.  The bus barely got downtown in time and when it left downtown it just kept getting slower and slower and slower.  So it took an hour to get home instead of 30 minutes.  The human is not happy about that.

I threw up on the couch again today.  The human doesn’t like having to clean up all the messes I make.  I seem to be getting on her nerves more and more with my meowing and my messes.

I hope everyone had a safe St. Patrick’s Day.  Hugs and purrs, Ali

March Musings

It’s only 1 week into March and winter just won’t go away.  I mean seriously, enough with winter.  The human typist can’t get rid of the sinus crud with the weird weather.  She gets tired easily and just wants to sleep.

Today was a weird day on the bus for the human.  Her bus was already late and the driver got out to smoke making it later.  Then a black male came running up to the bus followed by mall security who proceeded to block the bus from moving and pretty much accused the man of stealing shoes.  He was ushered off the bus and just when the bus was going to pull out another man got on and asked a bunch of questions and he needed a different bus.  Seriously people know where you are going and how to get there.  The bus finally left the mall 10 minutes late and barely made it downtown on time and I mean barely.

We are supposed to get snow tonight and possible wintery mix tomorrow and then rain on Saturday.  Hugs and purrs, Ali
