Sunday Selfies: So Long, Farewell,
Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye . . .


Well, Friends, I am going home with my Mama tomorrow. I am really excited, but maybe also just a little bit sad. I have grown fond of my Hostess, and she says she will miss me. But Mama says the Hostess will come see our new apartment and visit me! I've had a really nice time here for the last two months. Don't worry about the Hostess, though: She won't be all alone for very long at all! But she will tell you more about that in a week or so. It was fun getting to meet you. And who knows? I might even drop in from time to time and check up on efurryone! 

Here are a few pictures from my time here, and one video so you don't think I sleep *all* the time, even if I am a leetle bit zaftig!

Sunday Selfie: I Like It Here

I confess I have come to have a certain fondness for the Hostess. She is very good with the foods and the nice soft places to sleep, and the cuddles. She's a little less good about playing with my favorite wand toys, though she will do if I ask nicely. 
My time with her is growing short, though, as my Real Mama will be coming to get me a week from today. The Hostess is also looking forward to the exciting arrival of prospective furever cats! But she'll have more to say about that after I take off for my new digs. 
I think I look super pretty in this picture, sleeping next to her on my very own chair. I hope all the Kitties and the Humans are having a nice weekend. I know I am!

Sunday Selfie: Mama Was Here!

My Mama came over to visit me on Friday night and she had the bestest news! 
She found a new apartment for us to live in starting May 1st, and it even has 
a nice back yard with a garden! 

I am so excited 'cause I miss her so much! This lady here, my Hostess, isn't mean or stingy with the foods or brushies or nuffing like that, but she is not my Mama and she just doesn't know all the secret places I like to be petted or the special codes I have with my Mama. I mean, it's not her fault or anything, and I have been well-cared-for, but . . . I will be so happy to be with my real Mama, real soon!

Maggie and the McChonkersons say,

"Happy Easter & Passover, Peeps and Kitties!"

Magic offers apologies for Grayson who was clearly too involved with his breakfast 
to look up, and wishes to remind everyone that she, at least, has some manners.

Monday Morning Food Coma

 

I seem to have recovered my feline sense of calm and comfort. This lady is good with the foods, and the pets, and the playtimes and the brushies, but not so great with this blogging stuff. I never know when I might have the opportunity to chat with y'all. 
I don't really have too much to say except my Real Mom* visits me once a week. I really, really lubs her and I can't wait for her to find a new home for us. Meanwhile, this place is cushy enough. 
Also, she says this is a Tardy Sunday Selfie, whatever that means. Nobody tells me nuffing.

*
See? My Mom loves me lots.

Sunday Selfie: Sing* Along If You Must

My Hostess wrote me a song. But I suspect she stoled it.

I woke up, Maggie, I think you got somethin' to say to me
It's 2:00 a.m. and I really should go back to sleep
I know you're feelin' confused, but I'm not really amused
Oh Maggie, I wish you'd learned a softer meow

The wee small hours when you start to roam really make me mad
But that don't worry you none, you just say, Too darn bad!
You laugh at all of my pleas, when I'm beggin' on my knees
Oh Maggie, guess I'll love you anyhow

You made a Zombie of me right quick
With your late-night bellowing shtick
You stole my sleep, guess I'll learn to live without

I'm Not Fat, I'm Fluffy. . .
Oh Wait . . .


All right, I know I'm a Big Girl. But beyond a certain point, the When-are-you-due questions just aren't all that amusing, right?

I am a Fine Feline Specimen and while I am feeling grateful and even affectionate toward my Hostess, her lap is--well, shall we say well-padded? Glass houses and all.

And just by-the-by, there's another orange tabby living in this room! And she talks my language! The Hostess gently explained the concept of "mirror" to me, but I think she might be having me on.

Hi, I'm Maggie from the Temp Agency

The Human:  
Last Monday, in the throes of sadness over the departure of Spitty only two days before, and  feeling the emptiness in my house, I got a phone call from a woman I know from feeding the McChonkersons. 

"Hi," she said hesitantly. "I know you just lost your kitty, but.... Well, I hope you don't feel this is insensitive, but we need a foster placement for a kitty whose devoted owner is not able to have Maggie with her for a month or two, and I was thinking...."

Honestly, I couldn't get the "Yes" out of my mouth fast enough. It was perfect--helping the kitty and her owner, and having a furry friend around to care for and talk to. She arrived Friday. A Transition Cat, so to speak.

                                                                          Maggie:  
Hmmm, we'll see. So far, so good. I am super-confused though. After being at the rescue place for 5 days and getting used to that, now I find myself in a stranger's bedroom! And I don't even remember getting all nipped out and picking somebody up in the backyard!
 
I had a rocky first night Friday, but yesterday my Real Mom came to visit me and so now I feel better. I am eating and getting pets and brushies and all in all, life could be worse. This lady seems okay, but I am withholding judgment till I've been here for maybe a full 48 hours!

This person assures me I will have a chance to talk some more in a few days. I mean, she seems trustworthy, right? I'm sure she would never make an empty promise!

Sunday Selfie: Good Day Sunshine

 

Phew!  Just made it!  Honestly, the Human is losing brain cells by the minute now! I reminded her and reminded her of her commitment to post on Sundays, and she kept saying, "Yes, Spitty, I know, Spitty. I won't forget," and here it is 8:15 p.m. on Sunday night and clearly she *did* forget. Must I do everything? In compensation, she says, she does have a mid-week post or two almost ready to go. One of them is my favorite, heh heh.

We had 🌞 today after rather a damp and dreary week, during which we didn't even get that much rain. But we guess we'd rather live with our ongoing dry winter than endure what the poor Texans are dealing with. Hope all of you kitties in and around the Lone Star State are doing okay!

Sunday Selfie(s): Happy Valentine's Day!

Well, I take it as a good omen that she managed to help me for the 2nd Sunday 
in a row. And I am liking the odds that #3 will be coming up soon! (We might even work a mid-week Wordless Wednesday in one of these weeks, too). We hope all you Kitties (okay, and your Humans, too) have a wonderful day full of roses and chocolates catnip and toonas!

Bonus!
Our feral friend Grayson says....
"Valentine's Day? What is this tomfoolery? I mean, what's a 'Valentine'? Let's have food day. Yeah, that's the ticket all right. FOOD DAY! Now that's a concept I can really get behind."

Ugh! We Know, We Know

What can we say except we missed you! The new plan, that maybe she can stick to: We will post on Sunday Selfies and see how that goes. The truth is she's lost her blogging mojo--I have not! But she misses everybody and wants to keep a toe in the Blogosphere. We do lubs you!

Happy Mew Year! and Just in Time, Too


I know every one of you, Human and Feline alike, are as happy as we are to say a completely unfond farewell to the Dumpster Fire that was 2020. 

The Human says I look kind of worried in this photo, but I told her I just need a few more days to make sure it is *really* gone  ::looks over shoulder::

So far, so good.
