Greetings, readers. I was trying to think of a good top ten list to do and I asked Rebecca – what about a top ten list of Keekee’s favorite habits. We got out the old scratch pad to take notes, and today’s blog entry quickly came together. These are in absolutely no order whatsoever. I hope you enjoy this list.
#10. Keekee is my alarm clock. [Keekee nudges me awake for breakfast before the alarm goes off.]
#9. Jumps on top of the refrigerator to get huggy hugs and kisses too, before her little saucer of milk.
#8. Follows me around the apartment when I turn on all the lights in the morning. [We have a set pattern, going from bedroom, to bathroom, to kitchen.]
#7. Knows when I am sad or depressed. [She stays very close to me, as if to let me know that she is there.]
#6. Doesn’t mind going on the bus. [Some animals will cry, growl, or hiss, but I put a towel over her pet carrier and she has never misbehaved. She just sleeps.]
#5. Dinner and treats. [Same thing as the morning routine, but she does know the difference between words, definitely.]
#4. She knows when she’s been bad. [All we have to do is show her the air can, and she immediately stops said behavior, which usually is scratching my furniture.]
#3. Watching the 4th of July boom-booms. [Living on the eighth floor of my apartment building, I get a great view of the yearly fireworks display. Keekee sits on the window sill, and with all the lights off, we both enjoy the colorful display.]
#2. She is a good watch cat. [She knows when people are coming to the door long before I can hear them. With one person, whom she is frightened of, she puts her tail down, runs and hides.]
#1. My nap and sleeping buddy. [When it is time to take nappies or take a sleepies, within minutes she joins me on the recliner chair, goes to her spot at my feet, curls up and goes to sleep. Lately I’ve been sleeping with a scented candle on, and if I wake up at night, I can see her wrapped up in a ball and looking so cute, dreaming about who knows what.]
Keekee is either 9 or 10 years old now, I need to verify that at her next vet appointment. I don’t even want to think about the day that she goes to kitty-cat heaven. I know it is going to happen one day, and that will certainly be one of the low points in my life. I’ll deal with that then.
If any of you folks have pets and wish to share their habits and antics, please leave a comment here or on Facebook.
Until tomorrow, have a great day, take care, and happy reading. Keekee says meow.
