Has it already been six months since the last update?
Ophelia was your hostess and yapped her big mouth...
Now it's my turn!!
See here a picture above of the both of us taken this september.
As you can see,
we are both alive and well!!
Ophelia went to the vet to get fixed,
like i did...
While i had a few days rest without her around,
she recuperated quite well
and was happily reunited with the Man
who brought her back home...
She may be young but she knows the game,
playing coy with the Man...
How come she got to keep her claws?
not fair if you ask me...
Ophelia started seeing ghosts...
I swear i could sense something as well.
We both settled down for a while...
but after doing some house cleaning,
we came across a lot of hair.
Ticklebear claims there are no ghost,
and that we are the ones shedding all over the place...
When springtime arrived,
it was Ophelia's first
and she marveled at everything she saw and smelled.
I must admit it was intoxicating for me too
after the long winter months.
May was sunny and warm
and offered many moments of quietness.
Moments occasionally interrupted by my roommate...
Ah, who cares?!?
No matter how cute i act...
Ticklebear has eyes mostly on his computer or the new girl...
I get it!!
But it would be nice
if it would be my turn once in a while...
we girls occasionally share some good times.
On May 15th,
it was my birthday and Ticklebear gave me a scratcher.
I loved the attention
but he shouldn't think he'll get away from his duties to me:
because he had me declawed,
he promised he would scratch me until the end of time to my heart's content.
He did also get a glove that simply drives me nuts with glee!!
Ophelia's birthday was July 21rst.
She loved that toy that is now defunct.
She didn't get scolded for breaking it...
Guess who's the favorite here?!?
I did exactly the same thing when I was her age
and Ticklebear didn't get upset with me either.
Sorry, honest mistake here!!
I guess it's OK to break these,
as long as we leave the leather couch and the television alone,
Truth be said,
she amuses herself with most anything,
like when she plays fetch with those cigarette foils rolled up into a ball...
or vulgar pieces of ribbon.
I tell you!!
Truly anything amuses her!!
I must give credit here to the Man:
he got me/us a laser pointer.
WHAT A DELIGHTFUL THING!!
He was even cute when he got those glasses with cats painted on them.
That's so unlike him though.
And he even got us a new floor lamp when the old one broke down.
One thing he should be reminded though:
we see perfectly well in the dark!!!
He really didn't have to go through all that trouble.
Then August came by
and it was official:
Ophelia would stay with us
as her portrait was hung up on the wall
next to mine and Igraine's...
The Man still annoys us with his camera,
trying to get some GLAM shots,
as he calls them...
This one was taken last June
as Ophelia cuddled up to me.
You can all see just how enthusiastic i was about this...
The Man was very happy to see us together like that.
I was not!!!
One thing I am happy to report though:
Ophelia, by stuffing her face all of the time,
is turning into a pig!!!
I kid you not!!
She's half my age and already bigger than my pretty self...
do you understand why I have trouble with this?
I was doing just fine on my own.
It looks now like it will be an endless series of room-for-two,
dinner-for-two, litter-for-two, toys-for-two...
I didn't sign up for a threesome!!!
Life is good around here!!
