Life of a Kitten!

Many thanks to my sweet friend Brandi and her Mama for remembering me :). My Mama needed the ‘push’ I guess. I have been here- around- and mostly well; but my mama was under some sort of ‘spell’ and papa totally lazy- that leaves me with no one to help me blog.

Here is my update; I’ll try to keep it short:

I am one-year old now and officially out of kittenhood. Things are nothing much different though. Mama keeps saying that I will always be a kitten to her and she keeps on treating me like one. I still claim her lap and bestow all sorts of affection on her when I see her after a break of a few hours and I still look around for Papa because he has my most favourite lap! I keep doing the kitten things, after all- I have never learnt to ‘grow up’.

It’s summer in Aussieland now. Very hot- around 33 degrees Celsius everyday (that is 91.4 degrees Fahrenheit, for your ease of understanding)! Mama seems to like it. She’s mostly enjoying the crazy dry heat and the sunlight, Papa too (crazy humans!). Not me though. After all, I have a fur coat that I have to wear all the time; can you imagine how hot it gets under this coat? Well, let me answer that. It gets VERY hot! Not good at all! The strange thing is- it’s not even the ‘peak’ of summer. I cannot imagine how much more hot it will get in the dreaded month of ‘January’. Meow!!

I’m still on my special diet and I’m still losing weight. I have lost another 20 grams in the last two weeks. I had started with 4.5 kg 2 months back to 4.3 two weeks back and now I weigh 4.1 kg. The vet human, Laura, thinks I should have gained weight after I am cured from Pancreatitis- but she is not too worried because I look healthy and my coat looks beautiful and since I am now one year old- I will not be gaining weight as much as I used to while I was still a small kitten- anyway.

Since its so hot now- I’m shedding a lot. Mama needs to clean the house everyday to get rid of my furs. I got a new fur bush, too- to groom me better- that way I should shed less. Mama’s not sure it’s working, because I keep shedding just as bad. Meow!

This is it for now, kitties. Mama promises to help me blog more often from now on. Her work is keeping her busy, she is an ac-coun-tant, you know- she says those wretched numbers tire her eyes too much to do anything else at all, but she’ll be better from now on. She loves and misses all of you, too.

I hope all of you have been well…! Purrs, meows and head butts to all.
