Busy Bob

My family portrait...sorry I was grumpy but
it was my nap time.
Hi there, everybody! All the humans around here keep saying "Happy New Year." I'm not sure what that's about since I don't really use years, days, or hours to keep track of time. I just do what I do when I do it. Aside of the top secret cat things I do that I can't discuss, my schedule basically goes like this;

  • I wake up
  • do security checks 
  • eat 
  • exercise with Mommy
  • supervise our human helpers
  • eat
  • do security checks
  • sleep
  • exercise with Mommy and Daddy 
  • supervise our human helpers
  • eat
  • do security checks
  • watch Netflix with Mommy & Daddy
  • go to bed
Here are some fun photos of me & Mommy working out together! I hope you enjoy them and thanks for reading my blog!

Bob's heathen holiday revelations

Hi everybody... I'm a little grumpy today. I have known for quite some time that my family isn't Christian and it has not bothered me...until now. As my Mommy was reading all the holiday posts in the Savannah Cat group on Facebook, I was peeking over her shoulder and realized that I am being deprived of a sacred cat appreciation ritual!

Every year at Christmas, all the Christians bring a tree into their homes for their kitties to climb. Then, they put jingly, blinky, dangly things ALL OVER the tree just so their kitties can knock them crashing to the floor. As if all that doesn't sound exciting enough, sometimes the kitties have to complete a special mission before they get to knock things off the tree. These special missions can vary in complexity. Some kitties have to hone in on their paw dexterity and open a door to get to the sacred tree. Others have to jump fences or conquer 'the stink.' Sadly, I will never know these pleasures that Christian kitties likely take for granted. 

My life is pretty good compared to a lot of other kitties lives though. When I want a piece of chicken to snack on between meals, all I have to do is give kisses. I can have catnip anytime I want, except bedtime. Mommy makes me a new toy at least once a week and Daddy let's me chew on his tasty insoles. I guess I'm one happy heathen kitty after all! Happy holidays!

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.
