Monday Morning Mews: I’m Four!

Hello, faithful readers: Gypsy here with the Mews and an announcement.  My birthday is this week!

The first time my pawrents saw me was a summer night in August, 2013. When they found me at the back door of their shop,  I was tiny, scared, alone and shivering. But they took me in, and Motor Mommy held me. Look how little I was!

They spent a couple of days calling all the vet’s offices and the animal shelter and putting up “found kitten” notices in our neighborhood. When they got no response, they decided that I was officially theirs and took me for a check-up at the vet.  He said that, since I weighed two pounds (two whole pounds!), he estimated my age to be two months.  So my pawrents gave me the birthday of June 15.

(June 16 is another important date in our family, and Motor Mommy will post about that on Friday.)

And guess what? Someone already brought me a birthday present! This is our friend, Bruce.  My pawrents met Bruce through the racing world, and he loves kitties.

He stopped by our shop last week (on racing business), and he brought me a present!  A cute little toy ball with feathers attached. Of course, he didn’t really know my birthday was coming up soon…. he just brought me a toy ’cause he’s so nice.

It’s really fun to play with; I’ve been batting it all around our office. Bruce actually brought me two of these and told Motor Mommy to save the other one in case this one gets broken. (I think his actual words were: ‘here’s an extra one in case she tears up the first one.’ Wonder what he meant by that??)

Thanks for the prezzie, Bruce! You can come visit me anytime…..and you don’t even have to bring me anything.

Happy Birthday to me!

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, efurryone.  Today’s mews brought to you by me: Gypsy.

We have a very funny picture to share with you today, but it needs a little “set up”.

Whenever a box is delivered to our shop, it’s my job to investigate said box. Well, yes, Motor Man opens it and takes out the contents, but still….I must inspect the empty box.

Earlier in the day that these photos were taken, our area had been under a tornado warning. So when Motor Man saw me in this box, he asked me if it were my “fallout shelter”.

Motor Mommy thought this was cute.

And then, she got THIS picture.  How embarrassing.

But, purrhaps I could star in a kitty toothpaste commercial?

Monday Morning Mews, Mouse Edition

Hi, readers. Gypsy here, with this week’s mews. And this is a rather difficult post for me to write.

You see, last Wednesday, Motor Man had some visitors in our office.  As he and the other two guys sat there, talking, a MOUSE appeared, went to the center of the room and looked at all three men.  The mouse then moved on along to the other side of the office. “Yours truly” was in her kitty bed on a nearby counter, completely oblivious to what was taking place.

Later, the guys left, and Motor Man went out into the shop.  Motor Mommy arrived from an errand a short time later, and Motor Man related the mouse story to her. She noticed me inspecting the area of the office where the mouse was last seen. But, then, once again, I retired to my kitty bed.

A short time later, a friend of my pawrents arrived, and as they all sat in the office, chatting, the mouse appeared once again.  The friend was able to subdue the mouse, pick it up by its tail and relocate it to the outside world.

 And this is all I have to say about the matter:

I think that pretty well sums up the situation.

Monday Morning Mews

Good morning, friends! This is Gypsy reporting this week’s news with you.

Motor Man took this picture recently of Motor Mommy brushing my forehead with my very own kitty brush.

I guess you humans can compare it to a massage, or in Motor Mommy’s case, a pedicure.  (Sorry for the blurry pic: Motor Man hurried to get it because I was being so cute.)

Ah….thanks, Motor Mommy…for spoiling me. I’m so happy I adopted you two for my family.

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, readers!  It’s Gypsy with this week’s mews, and I have something very exciting to share with you today.

This IS my excited face.

Last Thursday, my new blogging buddy, Bacon, featured an interview with “Yours Truly” in the Spotlight Thursday series on his blog “Piglove”.

I thought you might like to read it, so here’s the link.

My step-sisfur, Sundae, was also interviewed.  Hers will be published soon, and I’m sure she’ll be sharing that with you on one of her Monday Morning Mews posts.

Thanks so much, Bacon, for introducing us to your furriends!

Monday Morning Mews

This week’s Mews brought to you by ME, Gypsy!

Last week, my pawrents noticed that I wasn’t spending as much time in my kitty bed as I usually do.  It’s right on the counter in the front office, which is a purrfect location, because I’m able to see efurryone who comes to our shop.

Motor Mommy realized the stuffing in my bed had flattened out, so she “fluffed” it up really nice, and guess what?

I jumped right in and settled down. Efurryone knows that a kitty can’t be expected to sleep in a bed with no floof.

Oh, in addition to my “Boss Lady” plaque,  I have a new sign: “CATS WELCOME, (people tolerated)”.

I don’t really feel that way, of course. I know that people who come to our shop are just there to visit ME.

Monday Morning Mews

This is Gypsy, bringing you this week’s mews.

And let me just say that I was not a happy kitty last Thursday.

Motor Mommy very unceremoniously shoved put me in that plastic box-thing that she keeps over in the corner.  She took me out of the office, and the next thing I knew, we were at “that place”.  You know: that place where kitties get poked and prodded and stuck with sharp objects and……and….well, I don’t really need to go into more detail.

Yes, it was time for my annual check-up.  I was a good girl, though, and efurryone there was very nice to me. I just love Dr. Betty, my vet.

I weigh 10.6 pounds, and Dr. Betty says I’m a healthy kitty.

Motor Mommy took these pictures of me when we got back to the shop.

Is my displeasure showing?

(Pee Ess: I quickly forgave Motor Mommy for taking me to the vet. She explained to me that she had to do it because she and Motor Man love me so much and want me to stay healthy. It’s all part of having a happy furever home.)
