Construction and Redecorating…

My person and I are doing some construction and redecorating of my blog so be sure to come back next week to see how it looks!

There’s no new post this week because of it…and too much cat nip at Christmas.

Once again, thank you very much for taking time out of your busy schedules to read my blog. I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Talk to you next year!

Happy New Year!!!!!

Kitties and Christmas…Part 2

…While I was watching those lights,  in came the tree. Why humans put trees up in their house, I’m really not sure.

Excuse me, I need to check that too please. “Here you go Sassy.” Your Kitty is really improving I’m so proud of you!

I finished inspecting, and my person put it up. Then came a long string of things…oh those are the lights.  I inspected the lights one by one. I’ve learned that lights can be very sneaky. Now you listen to me  little lights, don’t you try to pull anything tricky on me. I’m watching you…

Then just as I was inspecting them and giving them a little talk, they turned on me.  Aaaahhhh!!!!  There was a bright flash! Once I got my vision back, I let them have it..

Now I told you, nothing tricky! That’s it I’m going to be watching you. Don’t you try to pull anything else, or you’ll wish you hadn’t!

I went to Stealth Kitty mode, and flattened myself to the ground. My person put them all up on the tree, and you know those light cooperated and didn’t try to pull anything else. Then, my person disappeared for a little bit and came back with some boxes. Now what are those? I tried thinking back to the KGTNH, there were garland, lights, trees,…Oh those must be the ornaments! The KGTNH describes ornaments as little shiny things humans put on the trees.

Shiny they were! I inspected each ornament and watched as she put them up on the tree. You know they were actually really pretty to look at, and so shiny… you kinda couldn’t help but stare…. and the longer you stared…the more I just wanted to touch one, I’m not sure why, but I did….

Just as I was about to touch one…”Sassy, no!” Hmm…what…what happened? ” Sassy, you can’t touch the ornaments. Here, I have one just for you, this one you can touch and play with all you want.”

My person let me inspect that one, and it wasn’t quite as shiny as the others. But then…oh but then… she put it on the tree in front of one of those little lights and it was so shiny!!! I just wanted to sit and stare all day!

This is so pretty and shiny, thank you!  “You’re welcome Sassy, you just sit stare as long as you want.”

I did just that. I stared at that ornament from all different angles: under the tree, in front of the tree, on either side of the tree, and even from on the chair. I was really starting to like this Christmas, it was turning out to be pretty special. I think the tree is my favorite part of all.

Kitties and Christmas…Part 1

If you read my post from last week, you know about being a “Stealth Kitty” and climbing doors, and well, doing pretty much doing whatever it is to get the job done.

As I have said before, a good kitty will keep their people safe year round, no matter what. However, there are just certain times of the year, that’s harder than others. Thanksgiving isn’t too bad, but then there’s Christmas!

Now, we Stealth Kitty’s have extra training when it comes to dealing with Christmas. The KGTNH has two whole chapters on it! This was my first encounter with Christmas, and I was ready. You may ask how did you know it was Christmas time? Easy…by what humans call decorations. The KGTNH gives detailed instructions and descriptions on the long string of tree branches called Garland, then there’s the tree humans bring inside (why they do that, I have no idea!), the lights they put all over the tree and garland                      (again..why?), the little shiny things they call ornaments (WHY!!!!), and then all the boxes with paper and string all over them called presents.

Most humans don’t realize this, but as a good Stealth Kitty and Person Protector..all those things have to be inspected and cleared! Do you know how hard that is!!!  

One day my person started with all those things. She started with the garland, and I was on it! She has been getting better at her Kitty, I must admit, she’s catching on better than some humans, Wait, please slow down, I have to inspect ever inch of each garland. Those shadows could be hiding in there, or who knows what else, just waiting to get us. “What do you think Sassy, are they ok to put up?” I’m so proud of you!  I sniffed over every inch of that first piece… It’s ok. ” Why thank you Sassy, you’re such a good kitty. I know, I’m so glad you understand me now. “Alright Sassy, I have one more Garland, do you need to inspect that one too?” Of course, I’ve told you, it all needs to be inspected.  

She then laid that piece on the ground for me to look at. She really has come a long way. “Is it ok?” Yes, you can put that one up too.

She put those up over the windows and then put some ribbon on (which also had been cleared by me), and you know what, it didn’t look half bad. I actually liked it. I was sitting there admiring it, when all of a sudden, there was …a…FLASH!

AAAAHHHH!!!!!! Where did those lights come from! how did they get one there? I ran over to my person, she didn’t seem alarmed at all. How did those lights sneak in there?! The KGTNH said to watch out for the strings of lights that humans add to trees and garland, but there were no separate strings!!!!

Those lights are worse than the shadows!!!! They got right by me, but how???? It was time to go on high alert. I told my person, There’s no need to worry, I’m watching those lights, they aren’t going to get by me again…I’ll show them…

“Stealth Kitty”

This shop has turned out to be so much work! I’ve learned about so many things since being here: paperwork, shadows.. people paw watching…..                     20160808_115306

…and of course the best spot in the entire shop to be a “Stealth Kitty.”

Now you may be wondering what  a “Stealth Kitty” is.  According to the KGTNH it when, “…a kitty has to take extreme measures to make itself…INVISIBLE.” Fortunately I’m a small kitty for my age, so being a “Stealth Kitty” does come easier. Most times I just flatten myself down on the floor and I disappear, I would say, 98%. However, if I need to disappear 100%, I climb the huge door.

I know what you’re thinking…”Isn’t that dangerous?” Well…yes.

You see, I start out on the floor and get a running start. I run as fast as kitty possible and leap up onto the door… and climb up.

Then I creep across the top of the door and sit in this box. This box is on top of what I’ve heard called a “bookcase.” I’m not really sure what the purpose of that is, all I know is whenever I hear my person say, “It’s over on the bookcase…” people walk over to this thing.

From this bookcase, I can see just about anything in the shop, and can even ATTACK from the air if completely necessary. Let’s face it, sometimes the best way to defend your family, is leaping through the air and landing right on top of thing trying to hurt them.20160817_125942

Anywho…Yes, this is very dangerous, and I do not recommend it for your average kitty or person who has not had advanced training in being a “Stealth Kitty.” However I have been, and I take my job of keeping my person and the shop safe very seriously. People miss so many things, especially my person and people at this shop. Let’s face it, they need me, and expert Stealth Kitty to keep them safe!

The Shadows

Let me tell you about one of the best days I ever had at the shop.

I was making my usual security check of  the shop in the morning. I was securing the front room while checking to make sure all the “things- people -sit -on” were in their place  when… ATTACK!!!!!! 

The Dark Things decided to show their dark little selves. I tried the best I could to pounce on them, but they kept running from me.

Don’t you hide in those “things- people- sit -on”! I will get you ! You can’t escape today!!!!

I was chasing and getting close to the Dark Things when all of a sudden the back door opened!

What? Who is that!

I ran to the back room and their were some men. I ran over to my person, Who are they?  “Anne, the movers are hear,” my person said. Oh that’s right, those are the people that bring the, “things- people- sit -on”  (I know there’s another name for them, but it’s so hard to remember). I went  over to say hi and greet them, when… ATTACK!!!!!! The Dark things showed their little dark heads. I pounced and turned ..and pounced and turned…and pounced!

As I was saving the movers lives, they began to talk to Anne, when I heard them say, “Oh look she’s attacking the shadows.”  WHAT!!!! The Dark Things have a name!!! The Shadows!!!

I continued to attack “The Shadows” and had stopped some of them, but their was one that was just so sneaky. It kept following the Movers! I was hot on it’s little tale and about it get it when… The Movers stepped on it!!!!

I stopped in amazement…They ..were…defeated. The Shadows were …DEFEATED!!!

I ran over to the Movers to thank them, and you know what..they speak Kitty. One of them bent down, petted me, and said, ” Hey their Sassy. You totally helped us a lot! You’re such a good kitty.”

FINALLY!!!!!! Someone else realized the threat that those Shadows were, and was just as glad as I was that they had been DEFEATED!
