What My Mommy Doesn’t Know!

xena by Dave

What my Mommy doesn’t know…I watch her carefully to make sure she is ok

She is always in motion and when I get comfortable on her lap she moves off to do something else.

I wish she would relax and let me cuddle for as long as I like.






What my Mommy doesn’t know…as her fur baby I am always very concerned for her.

When she is sick …I lick her well.

When she is upset…I rub against her and purrr, and cuddle close.

When she is sleepless…I attach myself to her tummy so my purrr with rock her to sleep.





What my Mommy doesn’t know is that all the surfaces in the place are mine.

I happily share them but all beds, couches, chairs, counters, tables, surfaces all kinds including the sink are mine.


My Mommy knows a lot, she loves me, but just between us, she does not know everything!!!


Doris Day inspired My Mommy to ask landlords to allow babies like me into apartments.

My Mommy loves Doris Day and Doris loves little ones like me.

We were watching an old episode where Doris wrote an article about pets that need homes and that landlords need to allow people to adopt cats and dogs.

I was on Mommy’s lap and she bent down and kissed me, rubbed the side of my face and the top of my head.

Mommy always does that but she wanted to let me know at that moment that I was loved.

That show was a long time ago, Mommy was as little as I am, yet it is worse now then it was then, it is harder and harder to find someplace to move to. And Mommy was inspired and asked me to write this to put out the word.

We need homes.

You need us to love you. We need to love you.  It mutual love.

We do not do damage if our Mommies and Daddies teach us how to behave correctly.

Please let your landlord know you want a pet, write petitions, canvas the area.

It is especially important for people like my Grandmother, older humans need pets like me to love.

I am not sure if you know my Mommy rescued me, I was alone, in the rain and starving till Mommy found me.

I love her and she loves me.

Till next time…. Meow!


On Vacation With My Family

Xena in hotel

I went on vacation with my family. As you know we cats are a minority group as vacations go.  My Mommy is very special and she and our family would not go with out me. I am an important member of the family. Mommy bought some new supplies for me for this trip.  So I know she wanted me to feel comfortable, buttttt I am pussy cat and I had issues.

My Mommy bought a new toy, a new litter box and a new scratch post for the trip. I loved the toy and the scratch post but I was suspicious of the carrier and I did not see my litter box till we got there.

Mommy and Uncle David caught me a put me in the new carrier. Even though I do not like to be put in any small place it smelled nice, she put in a new towel and one of my favorite toys.  The trip there was fine, I like that when I rub my cheek against it that I rub against a net and not cold metal. She could open it, pet me and comfort me too, so I do like that a lot. It is soothing to hear my family speaking while we drive and to feel the thump-thump under me as we rattle along.


We had to wait at the hotel for our rooms so we sat on couches (me in the dumb carrier) and they talked and I people watched. I have never seen so many people in my furry life. Wow! Then Mommy picked me up and we all went up to our room. After the man brought all our stuff in, (mine too) Mommy let me go.

It was a nice place (Not home but nice.) The only thing I really liked was that I had my own bed in Uncle David’s room.  I also liked the high chairs it was fun to go up on the high back and look over my families shoulders. Uncle David thought it was funny and of course Mommy was always quick to take out the camera and take our pictures. She loves to take my picture. She took a lot of me while we there all the time.

After the weekend was over I was really upset to go back into the carrier. I did have a bit of an episode. I growled and scared grandma and made my Mommy mad. She does not scold me much but she did and when she gets that angry tone I usually do what she says. So to say she was both upset and shocked that I did not listen, would not explain the worried look on her face. I tried hard to escape but there was no escape. So I got in the corner and pouted. I am very good at pouting.

Then as we left the hotel I was admired by a beautiful blonde lady who said I was very impressive. Mommy liked that so I figure it was a compliment. Of course she did not know I was such a bad girl that morning. After we left the hotel we stopped to get pretty flowers to give to my late Grandpa. We went to his side and Mommy put me down near the stone thing and introduced me. Then the family just spoke to him and told him how much they missed him.  Uncle David and Grandma and Mommy all seemed sad and Mommy said Grandpa would have loved me.

Then we stopped for lunch, yes folks I had lunch too. I had my usual Friskies and water. And my family had Mediterranean food. Yummy.

Then we came home. I was so happy to be home. No more carrier and I had Mommy’s bed.  I had my own litter box and my couch.


Thanksgiving With My Family

My family had Thanksgiving at home this year. It was so nice to be with everyone. We also celebrated Hanukkah. Mommy bought me two toys. One was a fluffy white mousey and the other is blue ball with a tail it isn’t a mouse we can’t figure out what it is.

Mommy, My Uncle and Grandma and me watched movies and Uncle David watched football. We had turkey and I had a small piece too. Mommy sneaked me a tiny piece. She always thinks of me.

I would like to wish everyone especially other beloved kitties and puppies a happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.

I Miss My Mommy When She Isn’t Home

xena by Dave

My Mommy works from home but when she has to go out on appointment I miss her.  I wait by the door on the couch, peeking out the window.  I usually sleep but when I hear her I stand up wagging my little tail.

Then  I just won’t let her out of my sight. I follow her all over the apartment and I let her know that I am upset that she left me. The good news is she does feel bad, she gives me a special treat of tuna!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuna is my favorite thing in the world and Mommy knows it. She loves to give me tuna because she knows it makes me happy!!!

The other good thing is I sit on her lap and let her know that she is my Mommy. She knows that but it is a nice Mommy and baby time. I curl up against her tummy and she pets me and rubs my tummy.  Its my favorite way to end my day.



My Family And Me!

xena by Davexena and camel Hi Everyone!

I am so sorry I have not let you know about me for a bit but I have been really busy.


I have been really busy with my Mommy, Grandma and Uncle Dave.



Uncle Dave took the picture to left, I am so cute he couldn’t resist me. He wanted a picture of his own. So pop! The flash of bright light went in my eyes. He and Mommy were going out for the day but he had to get a picture of me. He Luvs me very much.

Then we had some stuff delivered, I am not allowed to meet them so Mommy puts me in our room. I do not like that but when he left I sniffed out the room to make sure we were ok.

Mommy I played a lot this week, the picture to the right was one my Mommy took of me playing with my toy camel. Isn’t my camel cute?

Anyway it is nap time, please let me know what you’re doing with your Mommy and Daddy!

Mommy is Too Busy to Pet Me


I woke up this morning and looked up, Mommy was already out of bed. She has been working so hard on all her stuff. She isn’t petting me as much as she used to.  She does pet me, don’t get me wrong but she does it in the morning when she feeds me and at night when she is reading before she goes to bed. I love when she reads because I always get to rub against the side of the book before I go to sleep cuddling next to her leg. A  purrrrfect way to end the day!

But she used to pet me all day as I sat on her lap now she has a notebook or a laptop on it all the time. She gets  really upset when I try to push it aside and gently picks me up and takes me to my couch in the living room. I love my couch but I love her lap more.

I know she is busy trying to make sure I have toys, food and snacks. She loves me very much and always buys me a toy for my birthday and plays with me once a day. I just miss sitting on her lap while she watches TV or lying against her as she reads. But now she sits at her desk all day playing with her computer.

63770_516309685076295_1756383758_nI was sitting by the door letting her know I heard knocking and she looked up from her lap top, smiled and took my picture with her cell phone. She loves to take my picture. She thinks I am beautiful and she tells me all the time that she loves me.

I just want more attention from her so I decided to take the post of secretary. I sit on her desk chair and watch her work on her bed on her lap top. I wash myself on her bed and watch my Mommy do a broadcast of her show Chatting With Sherri.

I am now a very important part of the Rithebard team. Here’s to me!
