El Pussy Gato

You may remember my guest cat Dexter from previous posts. My cousin dropped him off in April for a two-week cat sit and well, he's lying on my feet right now. Dexter, not my cousin.
El Pussy Gato has once again become an integrated part of my modest suburban apartment and I'm no longer sure when he got here. But he seems to have come with a brand new cattitude.

Consider yourself lucky to wake up to this


He must have gotten here before taxes because I put him to work in April.

What's the sales tax in Wisconsin?

He started sitting in the dog's spot on top of the couch.

If you can't sit, you musta quit. Yes, I now have an Italian accent

Sometimes he stayed downstairs all night, only coming up to the loft to put in his breakfast order.

I see you've made a plate of Chicken & Waffles for yourself

He slipped into his routine like a hand in a glove. And then I got really busy and the glove turned into OJ's.

I can't help but notice you're planning to take time out from ignoring me to go on a little trip

I had no idea how much food and water to leave him when I left for my birthday road trip.

I've seen less food in a bomb shelter

The lady at the pet store said cats were under hydrated. I was afraid to leave the toilet seat up because I thought he might fall in

He began to amuse himself in new and inventive ways while I was sleeping.

Let me just pull out every single shirt through this little slot

He decimated his Mouse On A Stick and I had to order him another one.

My darling, can it be love?

One night he jumped on the counter and ate through a bag of hamburger buns. Then he tore through a baggie of lemon bread and threw it around the kitchen.

Able to leap up on places he shouldn't be in a single bound, it's El Pussy Gato

When he left me the remains of his Mouse On A Stick at my bedside I felt like I was in a scene from The Godfather. I hoped sharing an ice cream cone was the favor I couldn't refuse.

Hmm,  needs chicken

I'm not sure what's gotten into the ginger varmint, but things have settled down a bit. He comes when I call him and puts up with my less than stellar housekeeping. I don't keep food on the counter and leave him kibble in his snack shack in case he gets peckish overnight.

 Have you ever even thought of cleaning back here?

I had a rough week and he clung to me like snot on a toddler. I was trying to hide him from the landlord the other day, but instead of running upstairs to hide he sang like Merman.
Yeah, that cat's out of the bag. Now my turn to sing.

  4. Hi Jeanna, Dexter seems to have you wrapped around his little paw and who could blame you? He's a mighty fine looking cat! I love the comparison of him sticking to you like snot to a toddler, I choked on my coffee! That's one I'm going to have to remember!

    1. I feel I need to clarify, I mean life will never be boring as long as Dexter is "visiting." At what point does it cease to be a visit I've been wondering.

  9. ...I'm not a cat guy, but this one is handsome. Tom Jones sure sang some unusual tunes in his day and this is one of them. Jeanna, I glad that Dexter is growing on you!

    1. I'm more of a dog person myself, but the more time I spend with him, the more dog like he becomes. I loved listening to Tom Jones, never got sick of him.

  10. Wow, he's keeping you busy! You have any idea why he left some time ago? Obviously he's letting you know that he likes it better at your house Thanks for the fun sharing your doggie/cat with All Seasons! Am definitely a dog person, but since we traveled so much and lived in the city, never got to it, because I know pets become your kids:):) A great week to you!

    1. Dexter is my cousin Vince's cat, I posted a picture of them the first time he dropped him off. I worry he gets bored, but yes, he's keeping himself busy, especially when he can stare outside from behind a porch screen. I'm a dog person too, but Dex tries his best so you gotta love him. My cousin travels and leaves his cat with me, lol.

  11. What a handsome new addition to your household. Looks like an angel acts like a devil though! Gosh... so I assume you're back from your birthday trip and he and your apartment all survived.

    1. My cousin dropped Dexter off to stay with me for the first time last summer and he stayed for about three months. He's come back to visit between then and now too. Dex turned devilish this time, probably because I was so much busier than the last times. I ended up coming back earlier than usual and it didn't look like he ate much but who can even tell. Yes, all in one piece, lol.

    1. Both my mom and dad loved him and I've got fond memories of the family watching the Tom Jones show growing up. That song keeps going through my head and I know I keep singing it off key, but what a classic.
