After the storm, the powers just would not go back on, no matter what. It finally came to the point where we had no more munnies to go out to eat, and no more noms for me either! We were moved to desperate measures. We went to stay with Mama! You guys do not know who Mama is, but let me tell you, she is so great and I love her a lot. Mama is my mommeh's grandmother, so I guess technically she is my great-grandmother. She is 91 years old (wowee) and still going strong. She lives about thirty-five minutes away, so my mommeh packed us up and off we went. We stayed in the basement, which is almost like a whole apartment because it has a bedroom, a bathroom with a shower, a fridge, microwave, and cable tv! We spent lots of time with Mama and it was like a vacation for me, but not for my mommeh since she still had to go to work. To ease the pain though, Mama made her big pitchers of something called whiskey sours and something else called screwdrivers. My mommeh said she felt better after having some, but she did not give me any, which I did not think was nice or fair, don't you guys agree?
When my mommeh took me to Mama's house, she put me in a carrier. Oh for shame! She knows how much I loathe and despise carriers. I would much rather be on my leash and harness, and sit on her lap for the ride. But she said she had so much stuff to think about and carry, that she could not be bothered to worry about me jumping around. Jumping around? Hmph. She is obviously not aware of what a dignified ladycat I am. I can not believe what I was made to suffer for that thirty-five minute drive. Here I am, being absolutely TORTURED!
I even pooped on the soft blanket my mommeh had put in there for me. You know, we kittehs have to show our displeasure and our disdain somehow! She was not happeh with me after I did that, but I was not happy with her AT ALL, so we were even. She was forced to stop the car and clean up on the side of the road, mwahahaha! Anyway, once we got back from our "vacation" at Mama's, my mommeh decided it might be a good idea to see if I could get to hate carriers less. So she leaves the carrier out now, in our room, so I can get used to it. So far it is not as evil as I had thought. I jump in it, sit in it, headbutt it, and even rescue my mousie from inside it.
So yes, friends, it has been a rough time over at AttieCattie's! But me and mommeh have toughed it out, and now the powers are finally back on and we are happeh to be home again. The first thing we did was make pasta and watch the Simpsons. I love it when my mommeh makes
the pastas - as you can see I am extremely helpful. And I like the Simpsons. My mommeh lets me sit on top of her Mac Mini computer when we watch the Simpsons.
Thank you so much to all my friends who came by to show concern and support while I was gone - it was so sweet of you all to worry! I have lots of work to do now, going around to everyone's bloggies and trying to catch up. It might take me furrever. Oh and if anybuddy has time, go over to Daisy and Harley's. They have pictures up today of the presents me and my mommeh sent them a few weeks ago, as thank-yous, cause they were so helpful in showing us how to get this blog thing started up! They gave us tips and advice, and showed us the Cat Blogosphere, and Daisy even repurrted my new bloggie as a news bulletin on the CB! And Harley... well... ::furblush:: You know. Heehee. So I told my mommeh what I wanted to do, and she said yes, and helped me custom order hand-made catnip fortune cookies for Daisy and Harley, with real fortunes! I am verreh glad my friends like their presents.
