Seiko Bear

Seiko has many nick names like Seiki-Business, Snake-O (because she can be quite mean to the young kitties), and Psycho (see: Snake-O).

I also call her Seiko-Bear. She has gotten so dark (and a bit round) that she looks like a baby bear.

Last night I dreamed that I was watching a baby bear in a tree and when it fell off the tree onto my car - it was Seiko. She ran away and I had to hunt for her and finally found her in a feral colony. She came to me right away. Then I woke up to find her sitting on my pillow.

Hello Kitty

February 24, 2009

Seiko gave me quite a scare Sunday. After I came home from church, we had some cuddles and then I did a bit of cleaning and laundry.

Around 5 p.m. I realized she was not supervising me as she is wont to do. (No wonder I was getting so much done.) I called her and she did not respond. Believe it or not she usually comes when called.

I looked high. I looked low. I looked in between. I panicked.

I had been to the basement and - worse out the back door several times. Could she have gotten out?

By that time I was shrieking her name hysterically. All the other cats had gone in hiding except for William who thought food might be forthcoming - he lives in constant belief that any movement of the human means food.

Then I heard the rustling of a plastic bag. There she was peeking out of a bag holding a coat destined for the local charity clothing closet. She had found a way to get in the center of the coat and was all toasty warm and quite irritated that I woke her from a nap. She was even more annoyed when I got her fur damp with tears and kisses.

Poor little freezing kitten needs a warm hiding/sleeping spot - so I bought her a Hello Kitty comforter to crawl under. It is warm. If I'm lucky she shares it with me at night.

Bet you can't find the kitty...

Gratuitous Seiko Picture

Learing some new techniques with Paint Shop Pro and practicing them on Seiko. She doesn't care as long as costumes are not involved. This was done with a mask layer to highlight her eyes.

Deck your cat in gay apparel!

Put yourself in mortal peril!

Potty Parity

November 21, 2008

It seems that potty parity is the answer. Seiko does not like sharing the litter box with a stinky boy.

Please Meowmie, May I Have Some More?

Please Meowmie, may I have some more? - Litter boxes , that is.

Well, Seiko is pissed (literally) with the addition of William a new rescue/foster . She has decided to make wee-wee on the sofa and bed in the room he frequents. I think she feels there are not enough litter boxes. Don't ask me how I know this, I just do. She looked at me and the idea popped into my head. So tonight I added two more boxes upstairs. She went right in the one and made big wee-wee.

If extra boxes do not resolve the problem, I will need to get her to Dr. Welch for a check up. That really should be the first thing anyone does when a cat stops using the litter box. Most litter box problems do stem from a physical cause - but I know my diva girl and am pretty sure this is psychological.

I think I'll crank up the Feliway Diffusers too.
