A Good Read




Hi everyone, Katie here.

Thank you to all my favorite cat friends for the cool comments you left on my 100th blog post!!! I was strutting around all day feeling like a princess. ... Glogirly is asking me how that's different from any other day. Well it just IS. So there.

Glogirly has been working on lots of projects at home. Resumes here, resumes there, resumes everywhere. I bet she's really wishing she were a cat right now. Since she's so busy I can't even get her to chase me around the townhouse and try and pick me up. That's our special game you know and she just doesn't to want to play. So I've had to make my own fun around here.

I've decided to take up reading.

First I had to find a book that was small enough to fit my delicate paws with pages little enough that I can turn on my own. It needed to be right-sized for my own lap as well. Stephen King clearly won't do. Besides, I have a feeling he'd keep me up at night.



War And Peace? What is IT good for?
Absolutely nothing... if-you're-a-cat. UUHH!



So I've settled on this little picture book about a cat and a squirrel that are involved in some "relationship." It's called Molly & Kimpy, Let's Go Someplace. I see there is an elephant involved. Now THAT'S going to make for an awkward triangle.




I know, it's sounding a little like a Lifetime Network movie. I'm just getting into it so I can't tell you where the plot is going yet. What I can tell you though is that it's making me sleepy... very, very sleepy.

  1. We love your blog Katie, and you are a princess! Remember you rule the housekeepers, so keep them on their toes at all times. Looks like a good book to put you to sleep. I think I need that book.

  3. What a cute little book. I like to sleep on top of my mom's thick books. That way, she pays attention to me and not the books.

  6. That looks like a fabulous book; maybe we ought to take up reading too.

    You'll have to tell your human to make time to play your favourite game, Katie. Sometimes the humans think there always will be tomorrow to play, but our human learned the hard way that that is not the case. So she makes time, even when she knows she has other things to do, to play with us and cuddle us, at least for a little bit every day.

    Purrs and kitty kisses!

  12. That little book is just perfect for you Katie. Our mum would prefer Stephen King though. She falls asleep too when she is reading.

  13. Agreed, Katie. You ARE a princess and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
    Your book looks like quite the read! I'll have to look it up!

  14. Ahh...the humans don't understand the day in the life of a kitty princess....! And Stephen King must not want to reach ALL his potential readers!

    So, uh--what happened, since the ellyphant showed up...? And I love your photos.

    PS. Tell Glogirly good luck on the resume thing. Tommy's job is going away to another state, so she and her co-workers are headed to another dept...humans...

    When my Mommy read that, she had to go and get a kleenix, cause she spit a liitle diet coke on the screen.
    Thanks for that!

  17. HI Katie!

    What a princess!?!
    Oh no you're the queen and you rule with an iron paw. See I understand because I'm the queen in my house and it takes an iron paw to get things done the right way around here.
    Good books are hard to find!

  20. I just carried my Yellow Kitty from our upstairs bathroom. She stays there because of Barney the dog and it has a second story window and is very warm in there. She sleeps in her basket at night but all day she basks in the sun and gets so very warm. I guess I need to go through our books and see if there is something she could read. Yellow Kitty is way over 14 years old so I may need to buy her some reading glasses. Take care Katie and I see you can read yourself to sleep too.

  21. We LOVE the pictures. You look so cute all curled up and comfy with your book. Mama really likes the pictures of you with the Stephen King and War and Peace books. You book looks interesting for a book.

    Happy weekend!

    Purrs,

  22. Congratulations on your 101st post! The cat and squirrel "relationship" portrayed in your book sounds rather controversial. We are very curious about how it all turns out.

    You reminded Mommy of an item she saw that could be ordered online called "Teach Your Cat to Read with Kitty Literacy". It was a set of little books and a combined feeding dish and bookrest. Mommy thought it was really funny.

  23. Our official thank you note:

    Thank you so much for all the purrs and prayers for our little hansel. It means the world to us- and we truly believe that with everyone in the cb - it's how we got through all of this. We don't know what we'd do without everyone! Hansel is doing very well - walking around, but we did have to put his cone on- as he thinks he should eat his sutures. He is eating, taking meds, drinking, using the litter box, everything is fantastic!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    -mom bean,
    and the whole gang!

  26. Katie, you are so cute with your book. We can't understand why Glogirly would rather play with resumes than with you though.

  27. Your blog changes look great Katie! That is a perfect cat-sized book. Maybe I need to rethink my book size?

  38. Katie, Cleo asked me remind you that you have more than a book - check out the coil on the spine! Rub against it, bite it, and if it begins to come un threaded from the pages, it's an even better toy!

  45. Hi Glogirly and Katie,

    I just wanted to alert you that your LOLSpot feature is posted.

    I usually ask that the featured blogger at least post a link to my site at the end of their post -- just for the day. I have already posted a link to your site from mine.

    Please come by and take a look and let me know what you think!
