Hope's Strange Days

Hi Every Cat! Hope Here! Shilgiah and Tommy and Mom think I have been acting kind of strangely of late. They just don't understand that I am having more fun than I used to when I was all scared and hissy. Now, I'm more comfy even though sometimes I still hiss. I only hiss now because being so much smaller than my sibs, I have to show them that nobody messes with Little Miss Hope!!

I can even make myself invisible when I hide behind the curtain in the bedroom.



Occasionally, I peek out and look cute for mom.

At night-time my mom kind of gets exasperated with me. I can't understand why. You see, recently for a couple of weeks I have really needed some reassurance that my mom loves me. This urgent need for reassurance usually happens at about 2 a.m. in the morning. So, this is what I do...

First, I am very quiet so she won't wake up completely. Second, I come real close to her face and purr. Third, I butt my head on her forehead. Then, I rub my face against her hand until she pets me on my head. Finally, when she hides her hand under the covers, I tap it with my little front paw to let her know I still need some petting and love. I don't think that is so strange. All mom has to do is to be available to me for about an hour or so and then I will all be fine!

Oh, and it wasn't my fault the yellow dish washing gloves got all torn up. I saw a yellow monster hiding by the sink and dragged it to the floor and killed it. It wasn't my fault that the yellow dish washing gloves got holes in them while I was saving us from the Yellow Monster!

Hi Hope! Don't worry about hissing--Caroline still hisses at me sometimes and I'm the nicest to her.

Oh, and I totally understand about the yellow gloves. I can't help myself, either, and I won't tell anyone there's really no monster. ;-)

Awwww, Dante also does the head butt early in the AM too. Me, Mommy is all tired when it's like 5am and he's head butting. But it feels nice to be loved.

Hope you are doing all the right things to get attention at 2:00. I don't blame you for hissing, it is hard when everyone is bigger than you!

It was nice of you to kill the yellow gloves. They hide under our sink too!

Such a brave girl, going after that monster!!! I will be on the look out for one here.

Hope, we don't think you are asking too much from your mom...she should want to get up at 2am and give you some much needed attention!

Hope, it sounds like you are really starting to relax there!

It's never the cat's fault!
Those are such pretty pictures .
Hey, mom would send snow for skiing if she could! What we got has melted away, but never fear...winter's near!

You have been taking lessons from Powder! She does the same thing to my Mom!

Sounds like an important job -- slaying the yellow monster. I think the head butting and putting your head in mom's hand is OK, but I'd do it when your mom should be waking up anyway. I think she'll appreciate it more.
