June Musings

Well, it’s June.  It’s really hot here.  It makes me really sleepy and I shed a lot.  I do mean a lot.  I continue to wake mommy up every morning around 5:30 a.m.

On Monday, my human tried to get blood drawn for her labs to see her doctor.  I say tried because even though she was stuck twice no blood came out.  So the human had to cancel her appointment with her doctor and will be going on Saturday for try number 2 on blood work.

Today will be a really long boring day at work for the human, 8 hours of building books.  That is putting books into plastic envelopes.  It’s no fun and it’s really boring.  At least it will earn her some money.

On the upside, I am a member of the Cat Scout Search and Rescue Team.  Not bad for a 17 year old cat.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Memorial Day & Race Day

Today we celebrate Memorial Day which remembers those who died in service to this country.  Freedom isn’t free.

It’s also Indy 500 day.  Living only 1 hour away from the racetrack means I can’t see it televised live so I listen on the radio and then watch the replay later tonight.  I have certain drivers that I root for every year.  It really is the greatest spectacle in racing.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Happy Birthday to Me

I am 17 this month, while the human doesn’t know the exact day of my birth, we celebrate the entire month.  Tomorrow at Cat Scouts we will celebrate all May birthdays and the theme is royalty.  My human calls me Her Royal Cuteness.

We are watching Harry and Meghan get married today.  Soon the human will be going to the grocery store to pick up a few things.  Tonight she will help out at church for Kids Night Out/Parents Night Off.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Computer issues

Yesterday my human typist’s laptop got hacked and she had a major panic attack.  She was shaking, crying and hyperventilating.  She made an appointment for Best Buy to look at it.  Basically, she ended up purchasing a new computer and transferring all her pics of me to it.

Now she is really worried about having enough money to make it through the month.  We are not asking for money or gift cards, just good thoughts and purrs.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Jigsaw & Needlework

I finished 2nd in the jigsaw tournament.  A big thank you to Denmaster and CatP for thinking of me and offering me a prize. My needlework discussion went well.  Even though many scouts couldn’t be there “live” they did show up later and posted pictures and comments.

That’s all for this time, keeping it short and sweet.  Hugs and purrs, Ali

 

Busy Ali

I have been busy at Scouts lately so haven’t written in a while.  Gearing up for the jigsaw tournament next weekend and I will be leading a needlework discussion the last Saturday of April.

The human went to the BMV yesterday to switch out her unused driver’s license for a state ID.  She will get the actual card in a couple of weeks.  She had to take her glasses off for the picture so she feels like it doesn’t look quite right.

I will keep you updated on the outcome of the tournament and the needlework discussion.  I am the admin for the needlework group and I hope this goes well.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

St Patrick’s weekend

The human typist was working yesterday so I am a day late in posting my photos from the Cat Scout trip to Ireland.

Just some random stuff

Valentine’s day is over for this year.  My  human bought a luv pug as her valentine present.  I know, a stuffed dog in the house and it plays a song, how annoyingly cute.

The crotchety cougars and I are off on a vacation to Fiji.  Soon the Cat Scouts will be going to Egypt and in March to Ireland for St. Patricks Day.

Today the human had to get a TDaP shot, this will last for 10 years.  She hates getting shots.  She is still waiting to get her mammogram scheduled.  Because she didn’t have health insurance for 3 months she is way late on getting it done.  She has lost 28 pounds since last May and her blood pressure is doing well on her medications.

That’s it for now, hugs and purrs, Ali
