I came down to play with mom last night. She thinks maybe I did that because Aurora refused to keep playing because I was too rough. Then she trimmed my pokey claws so I walked away but then I came back and gave her kisses then played rough again till I got a treat.

If mom needs to take a lot she can shine a bright light through them, even the big ones. Mainly for the finger claws she just has to dull the tips a bit if she does them since we shed them naturally. When she used to trim them regularly, because she didn't know not to, they were a mess. I still don't shed my back claws well like Aurora so those need more maintenance.

We had a big fire close. This was when they were setting back fires to stop it. View from backyard.

Aurora is now creeping out from under her bed to find a snack, by that I mean she expects mom to put on on the food shelf for her.

I've slept in the washer though last couple nights I've crawled under the covers with mom for a bit and laid over her chest like this but it's an old photo cuz I don't want flashes in my eyes in the dark.

Mom tried to test my blood sugar last night. I wasn't in the mood though she managed to poke me didn't get enough blood from either poke. She also somehow managed to stab her thumb with the lancet. She bleed plenty.

Aurora and I played quite a bit last night. We even spent some time playing on the floor and by the bed.

Tried sleeping with mom last night but she's so lumpy I couldn't get comfy. We played some on the cat tower and I clawed and picked at the twine on it.

Then I got brave this morning and went outside. I found the best thing ever. Gampa's old log he used to cut wood was full of termites! When I got done Beaker(dog) came and stuck his head in the hole I'd made and even tried licking but he didn't see what was so special. Keep trying boy. We'll make an anteater out of you.

I'm up early. I had a drink and climbed the tower but that's enough for now. Time for my wake up nap in my hammock.

Played with mom last night then bugged her a lot then played with Aurora. Mom would have taken me for a walk today but it's too smokey. So she gave me one of Aurora's melatonin so I'm sleeping good.

As an aside melatonin doesn't normally make nocturnal animals sleepy since we are up at night when our bodies produce it unlike diurnal animals like humans but for some reason it makes me sleepy though doesn't Aurora. Aurora was getting it for her fur but the taurine works better for her on that now.

Oh yeah Aurora is under the bed today.

The wind shifted today so mom said it was clear enough of smoke to go for a walk. When the air is clear and from the other side of town which is higher and farther away from the close ridge you can see a lot of it. It's kind of spooky.

Speaking of spooky I was scared to go in my carry bag. I was sleeping snuggled next to Aurora in the washer and then plucked out. I was like no way am I going in that bag. Something bad happens every time, poison, assassins, nope nope nope. But she managed to shove me in anyway, saying I'd have fun once we got there. Turns out she was right this time.

I had a blast. Mom took me to the trail head and opened the bag. I was a bit nervous at first. It didn't help when some dogs came running up but it went smooth after that. I went to the hallow tree and clawed around down inside the hallow burl.

After the guy with the dogs passed by a second time mom pulled me out and we continued on. I had a fun exploring and running along and even went in a hallow stump and a couple stopped to admire me and I didn't mind.

Oh I also got shown to Grandma's nurses before we left the house. Glad to be home. I'm sleeping in the closet nest now.

Mom forgot I like a good bath after a woodland walk so I had to try and bath in my vinegar bowl last night but that wasn't enough so I got up and asked for it this morning and mom poured out the vinegar for me and I had a nice long bath.

Aurora: Pua just came back in the washer smelling of vinegar and blue cheese. Yuck. I'm off to the closet. Oh and maybe I can get a treat too, some of my sour cheese, thanks.

September 12, 2014
Aurora: went out and sunbathed but not sure what to do with myself now. I opened the lid and sniffed in the washer but Pua is still stinky but I'm not happy with the closet nest either.

September 12, 2014
Aurora: After lots of pacing, the washer it is then. I'll just have to put up with her stinkiness.

2m later: Gah no I was wrong. I'm out of here! Off to the closet nest I go

September 12, 2014
Aurora: okay I went out again. All the dogs got a bit of sunbathing too but now I'm settled in the closet nest for real.

Yesterday we both slept in the closet but Aurora has her period so she is sleeping under the bed today and I have the washer to myself.

I draped myself over Aurora yesterday. She said I make a nice blanket.

September 21, 2014
Aurora: I was sleeping peacefully under the bed today when when chaos broke out. I started to come from under the bed during a lull but realized people were still there and tried to turn back and was nabbed by the tail and ushered off to the closet. The mattress was gone and my servant said I needed to move so they could take the box spring and she had assumed I was sleeping in the washer or she'd have moved me before starting.

They were moving in a better mattress and box spring my servant inherited from her mom. So I paced a bit then settled in the washer. I decided though since I was awake anyway to go out and sunbath for a bit once everything had calmed down. I am currently in the closet.

Night before last it was wee morning hours and we saw mom was feeling sad so we came and played right beside her on the cat tree. It cheered mom up that Aurora was playing just inches from her and that she could even see us a bit from the morning light.

Last night I kept waking her to bug her for treats and left some pee on the bed when she didn't keep complying so she got mad and said no more the rest of the night. So I found a bag of ants and tore it open and made a mess. Seems one of the bags may have been the good kind after all. The first ones mom opened sure weren't though. Mom woke to a strange smell and couldn't place it till she saw the mess.

Mom sure gets cranky when the sink drain comes unplugged. I'm pretty sure she muttered something about my being a jerk when she was back there and discovered there were holes poked in the tube as well. That's okay I know she didn't mean it or maybe she meant to say Jake, yeah the cat did it.

September 25, 2014
More holes in the sink drain tube, and someone climbed over the chicken wire fence. That's a shame. Don't know anyone who'd do such a thing but I'll keep an eye out for ya.

Grampa split open a buggy log and look at all the yummy goodness mom gathered for me. We'll get to play with the log parts too.
