Busy Aslan

Aslan had a very busy Tuesday! He loves to fetch things for Mom and Dad. One of his favorite games is "foil ball" where Mom and Dad will make a ball out of Hershey Kisses wrappers and throw it for him. He will either bat it out of the air, or go chasing after it and return it to Mom or Dad for them to throw it again.

Tuesday, he decided to fetch some things from the kitchen. This is the lid to Mom's water bottle for the exercise bike. It was on the kitchen counter.

But the one that got him was when he brought Mom a jalapeno from the counter. Mom thought he was bringing her a bug (it's happened before), but then she realized it was a hot pepper. Poor little guy was panting and uncomfortable. Mom noticed a few teeth marks in the pepper from where he carried it, and got him some milk to neutralize the heat. He was OK, but I think he learned a lesson too.

Birthday Stinky Goodness

I almost forgot to post my birthday Stinky Goodness pictures!

Maggie’s 15th birthday celebration
Dad made me a Stinky Goodness cake in the shape of a 15 for my fifteenth birthday! This has been our tradition for as long as I can remember. It was very tasty!

Maggie’s 15th birthday celebration
I was even nice and shared some with my brothers. They didn't even make me hiss!

Maggie’s 15th birthday celebration
Here's the "cake" before I started eating it.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm not as spry as the kittens are, but I still have my kitteny moments, and still climb on the back of the couch to watch the sassy squirrel on the deck. Now, back to my nap...

Happy birthday to ME!

Happy birthday to Me! Today is my 15th birthday. Today is also Mom's birthday! Mom got a new Apple Watch for her birthday, and I got the Target bag, which, if you ask me, is much cooler. 

Later tonight I'll have a Stinky Goodness cake and I'll post more pictures. And probably get lots of treats.

Aslan’s new trick

I found a new place to hang out, lounging on this great IKEA pillow on the couch in the front parlor where the morning sun washes over me. It's super comfy. 

So Aslan has a new thing he's started doing (and I hope he doesn't stop now that I'm talking about it). Aslan doesn't like top nap at Kitty Cat Nap Time when Loki and I are napping. So a few times last week he went up to Mom and pat-patted her on the leg to get her attention and then curled up in her arms so she could hold him like a a baby. The first day he let her hold him for about 20 minutes and about 10 the second day. It really was the sweetest thing.

All in our own spots

Cat trio
Last night Dad caught us all hanging out on the couch together. You can see that I've trained the kittens to stay in their own zone. We can hang out together, just not too close together. (Baby steps in this relationship.)

(Also, Dad wanted me to tell you the blankets are from when Mom and Dad went out of town this weekend and they are there to limit the cat hair on the couch. They know when they're gone we just camp out on the couches waiting for them to return.)

Sleepy boys

Being a busy one-year-old McKitten-Cat can be very tiring for these boys.

Sleepy Loki
Loki got in a really big yawn before his mid-morning nap.

Stretched out Aslan
Aslan is all stretched out and showing off his floofy goodness! I know Mom and Dad love that floofy belly.

Aslan woke Mom up in the middle of the night two nights ago to show her that I was sleeping in his cat bed instead of mine. It really was the cutest thing. He nudged Mom, and when she got up he led her to the cat bed, then looked at Mom as if to say, "What are we going to do about this?"

I hope all of you are getting in some good naps too.

Missing HB

Yesterday marked one year since Huggy Bear crossed the Bridge. We spent the last few days celebrating the boys' birthday, since it was just a few days earlier. I'm convinced that Huggy Bear sent these two boys to Mom and Dad, because Loki is a lover much like Huggy Bear was, and Aslan has a lot of HB's personality. I loved Jasper and Josie, but Huggy Bear and I had a special bond. It was usually "Maggie and Huggy Bear" -- rarely just one of us.

Aslan is trying to fill Huggy Bear's role, and I give in every now and then. You have to give him credit for trying hard. It is nice to have a couple of little brothers who think you are a rockstar.
