Cold Weather Kitty

Hi, everybody! Have you noticed that the heat is totally turned off outside? In the house there are several openings in the floor that blow really warm air. They are great! I like to lay on them when my paws are cold. Sometimes I even press my face against them if my nose is cold. My favorite way to keep warm though is to snuggle with Mommy or Daddy. Sometimes I can convince Mommy to stay in bed and extra hour and that makes me super duper happy.

Sometimes Mommy has to get right out of bed and get ready for work though. That makes me very grumpy. Sometimes when I'm napping with Daddy, he thinks our nap is over before I do. That makes me grumpy too.
"Please stay in bed" says Bob
I always forgive them though. They need me too much to stay upset with them...especially Mommy. For example, I know how much she likes to beat Daddy at Scrabble so I do my best to help her pick the winning letters. Then I put my toys in Daddy's slippers so he knows that I love him too.

They did it again!

Hi, everyone. Can you believe my parents left me AGAIN!? I do not understand. All I hear from them is - 

"You're our handsome boy" 
"You're the smartest kitty ever" 
"We love you"
"Get off there, you little butthole"

Why on Earth would they ever want to leave a cat as fantastic as me? Just look at me. Fortunately, Uncle Ian always senses when they have run off. He comes over, feeds me, and gives me snuggles when I'm in distress.

I get really frustrated with myself when Mommy and Daddy come home. I had decided to ignore them for a few days, if they ever returned. As soon they got in the house though, I caved in and started giving them kisses.

Adoption Day - One Year Anniversary

Bob in mid-pounce!
Hi there, everybody! Today is a special day for my family. One year ago today, I adopted my Mommy & Daddy! I don't remember a lot about that day, other than lots and lots of riding in the car from Auntie Pam's house to my new home. She gave me my special Pooh blanket and I still take it with me when I go on car rides.

I was a little bit scared when I first got to my new home because there are no other kitties here. No dogs or anyone else with four legs either. It didn't take me long to realize how awesome it is being the only kitty though.

All the toys are mine and I don't have to share them! I never have to wait my turn to sit on anyone's lap. All the perfect nap spots are mine! I don't have to share Mommy & Daddy with anyone. Yup, it's a pretty good life I have here.

Mommy and Daddy left me!

Bob lecturing his parents.
Hi everybody! You are not going to believe what my parents did to me. They abandoned me! It was horrible. I don't know how to tell time but I think they were gone for about fifty years.

If it wasn't for Uncle Ian and his small human that squeals, I surely would have died. They came over and fed me and played with me a few times. I'm not sure how they knew I was in distress...maybe they saw Mommy and Daddy escape.

I gave them a very stern lecture and have kept a close eye on them since their return. They don't seem to understand that I can only protect them from bugs and other scary stuff if they stay in the house. It has been a bit of a challenge getting them back in their routines as well but I sure am glad they are home. It's getting too chilly at night to sleep without my Mommy.

Snuggle Season Approaches

Savannah Cat Bob & his Mommy
Hi everyone! Thanks for reading my blog. Everything is going pretty good for me lately but I'm a little worried about my Mommy. I think she might be shrinking. 

A few nights ago while I was guarding the neighborhood from the lookout on the catio, it got really cold. It confused me because I thought cold-time was over. Hot-time is nice because the windows are open and the squirrels can hear me yell at them. It's not very comfortable to snuggle on laps during hot-time though. I've been settling for the next-to-lap-snuggle but it just isn't the same. 

So, on this particularly chilly night, I jumped off my lookout and went to find Mommy's lap. It was just as warm and snuggly as I remembered! Her and Daddy gave me a bunch of kisses too, which made me pur! Then I tried to stretch out but I couldn't...not and stay on Mommy's lap. I had to curl myself up into a tight little ball to fit on her lap. I know her lap was big enough for me to stretch out during the last cold-time. This is why I am worried that she may be shrinking. 

Luckily, we figured out a way for most of me to be on her lap while the rest of me lays on a pillow next to her.

A Cat's Work Is Never Done

Bob sees all.
Hey there! Sorry I haven't blogged much lately. Now that I'm a grown-up cat, I have more responsibilities that take up most of my time. In addition to being cute and protecting our home from squirrels, I've started assisting Mommy with her new job. 

I really wish I could tell you what it is that Mommy does but I just don't get it. She still needs me to supervise though. If you can tell what is going on here, would you please explain it to me? I make my appearance at the 2:07 mark. 

Don't worry. I tasted the plaster and tested the stickiness of the tape and the sharpness of the scissors before anyone used them on Mommy. I almost lost a few whiskers but we both got through it ok.

After a long days work though, I really enjoy lounging on my Catio that I got for my Birthday. Lately though, these cats have been coming around and bothering me. They are all black with a white stripe down their backs and they smell awful. They must not bathe...ever. Disgusting! I groom myself as often as possible and never smell bad...unless I fart. I hope my parents don't let any of those smelly cats in the house because I am not sharing my toys with them.

Happy Birthday Bob!

Savannah Cat Bob on his Birthday Catio
Hi everybody! Did you know this is a special day? I didn't. It started like most Sundays at our house. We slept in a little. Then, when I saw Mommy starting to wake up, I laid across her face to make it easier for her to kiss my belly. After she was up and in her wheelchair, we played Peek-a-Boo and then I got on her wheelchair with her and snapped her headband a couple times. She loves these fun games I think of.

Then, without warning, Mommy and Daddy both started singing to me. I thought my ears were going to bleed but I tried not to let on so I wouldn't hurt their feelings because they sure seemed happy about it. Turns out, today is my very first Birthday! That means I'm one year old. 

I got my Birthday surprise a little early but I am still accepting presents. For my big Birthday surprise, my Uncle Bob, Aunt Iris, Uncle Ian, Mommy, Daddy and my big sister Nicole all worked together and made me a Catio! I love it! They are the best! When I sit on top of my big kitty tree, I can see the whole neighborhood. Mommy says I'm going to win the Mrs. Kravits award. I can't wait!
Baby Bob
It's been a pretty fun Birthday so far. Although, I don't think it's right that I had to get a Time-Out just for trying to help Daddy with some home improvement projects. I think my paws would work way better than those silly paint brushes he uses.
