Saturday Friends

Ok, I think I'm done being humiliated over yesterday's post. I don't like being a bouquet. Fortunately, it doesn't happen very often. It was very nice of Daisy to compliment my long stems though. I am becoming more of a ladycat, and I have the long legs to show for it.

Part of being a ladycat I think is to great new guests to our home and make them feel comfortable. This is J. She is one of my Mom's closest friends ever. They have known each other a very long time, and J even new Mom's very first cat! Anyway, a few weeks ago, J came to see our new apartment for the first time. This was also the first time I ever met her! Sometimes I can be a bit pushy with people and rub all over them too much and this is not very ladycat-like I've learned. So when J came to visit, I tried to be a little more considerate. She has not always been comfortable with cats, so I didn't want to come on too strong. I think I did well. I tried to give her some space, and even asked permission in my own way if I could come up on her lap. Mom said I am becoming much more respectful, and J was even comfortable enough to pose in a picture with me! I know it seems like I'm about to run away in this picture, but sometimes when someone is petting me and they approach my rump I just have to lift it way high up in the air!

You may be wondering about Mattingly and how he treated our nice guest. Well, he is so darn respectful of visitors that he comes off as rude and antisocial. That's right... he hid. The entire time. And for two hours afterward.

So that's my story about my new friend J!

Also, we have another friend to announce. She is a friend of J's. She likes our blog a lot. So...


We are glad to be your friend too, even though we haven't met you!!!

Hi Matttingly and Harlie:
You are two cool kitties, and we bet living in New York is fun. I nominated you Mattingly for the Rockin' Boy Blogger Award. Come by out blog to get the information. Samantha loves Harlie's bouquet picture.
Hi 5 paw,

Thanks for introducing us to J. She is pretty! Harlie, you are really becoming a very well-mannered ladycat. Do not worry, I do that rump-lifting thing too.

Awww thank you guys for adding me to your blog! I am glad Jessica introduced me to you. I'm here quite frequently to watch you guys. But unfortunately I dont have a pet of my own, so have nothing to contribute. You guys are absolutely wonderful! HUGS!

You are growing up to be a fine young lady, Harlie. And a rockin' girl blogger. Lemieux has nominated you. Come on over to our blog and see.

Mom read somewhere that the raised rump thing shows mutual affection for the one doing the petting.
