conversations with my cat

I have a cat named Jett?who is very cuddly?and quite talkative.? He is also a little (ok, a lot) high maintenance and makes sure to let me know exactly when he wants something.? Like, for example, when he wants me to shake his food bowl.? Yes, that’s correct, shake the bowl (I told you he was high-maintenance).?

We have one of those bowls where you can fill it with lots of food and as the cat eats from it, more food is supposed to fall down.??A clever (or assertive) cat could stick their little kitty paw into the bowl where the food is and make more come out.? That’s just not Jett’s style.? He prefers to meow very loudly and constantly at me until I go to his food bowl and shake the food out of the top for him.? We have this conversation every day about his food bowl, typically between 11 and 1 (lunch time – he’s on a tight schedule, you know).

Jett:?? meow, meow

Me:? Hi Jett! ( I reach down to pet him hoping to appease)

Jett:? meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow??? (this is also?when he jumps in front of the computer or aggressively rubs against my leg)

Me:? What is it Jett!? I’m busy!


Me:? Fine!? I’ll? stop what I’m doing to shake your stupid food bowl!? (I stomp into the room where his food bowl is, give it a good shake and stomp out)

(2 minutes later)

Jett:? MEOW, meow (I pretend this means thank you)

I let Jett?get away with this bratty behaviour because he is just so darn cute and loves to cuddle.

my blogging confession, and body scrubs

I am a blog posting delinquent.? It has been 3 weeks since my last blog post.? I was doing pretty good there for a while and posting more regularly, and then, I just don’t know what happened.? I guess I haven’t had anything interesting to say.? Or maybe it’s because I always forget to take pictures of the interesting things I am doing and I feel like a blog post without a picture is not worthy.? Either way, I’m back from hiatus and have some fun new posts planned.? I’m putting that out there to hold myself accountable.? I feel better now.

Now, on to the body scrubs.? I’ve been making these salt and sugar scrubs for a few months now, but have just now posted them on Etsy.? These scrubs are, of course, all natural with no preservatives or artificial anything and are scented with essential oils.? They are really popular at craft shows and markets, and I have several customers who are already hooked on them.? They tell me they don’t need moisturizer after they use them in the shower – they’re that good.? I’m just sayin’.?? Check them out on Etsy (shameless plug).
