New Place to Sleep
When Myst came to live with us, he brought a small cat climbing post. The parents put it in the living room temporarily. I love it! Myst and I both climb up here and watch our humans watching TV. (Myst likes to watch TV himself - not me, though I like the way sitting up here puts me in the center of things.)
We cats are having such an amusing time that the parents may just leave it in the middle of the room. Watching us play is better than watching TV, they said.Muddy

Myst and I are being very cautious with each other. We do not pounce or wrestle. Instead we sniff noses and I trill at him sometimes to entice him to play. (I would like to wrestle, but I hate making any other cat angry with me so I am taking this slowly. I want Myst to become my best friend.) The parents are slowly getting Dandelion to accept Myst, too. Dandelion still wants to drive him away, but the parents hold and pet him when Myst walks into the room.
The parents thought I was a small cat (although I look bigger with my fluffy winter coat). Then Myst came along -- he's a mini Persian. He is 1 & 1/2 years old and full-grown which is almost too hard to believe. I am glad that I'm not the smallest cat around here anymore.Muddy

Myst is great to be with. I am no longer bored around here. He fascinates me and I follow him all over the place. The parents have remarked about how quiet I've been lately, no longer nagging them for attention as much. Instead I nag Myst to play with me. I am gradually getting my way. This morning, we ran up and down the hall together.
Myst likes to be brushed. Even more, he likes to grab and chew on the brush.Muddy

Our New Cat is Myst!
Our new cat is Myst!! I know him since he has come to visit us every once in a while. The young girl and her husband own two cats, but her husband is allergic to them so they are going to keep the short-haired cat and let us have Myst back.
Also, Myst needs to eat special food because his stomach is so sensitive -- so does Dandelion. I can eat any food - I am pretty tough. Myst does best with a human at home during the day who can clean up and give him medicine when he needs it.
As for me, I am thrilled!!! I love Myst. After only 3 hours of snarling and hissing, we became friends again. I follow him all over the house. Last night, I was trilling to him, trying to entice him into playing with me. Myst is not quite ready to play with me, yet, but he lets me follow him around.
Dandelion is another problem. Dandelion does not want another cat in the house. It will be a long time before Dandelion accepts Myst.Muddy

Sleep is an Art
Cats know the art of sleep. A lion can sleep 22 hours a day. A housecat can sleep about 16 hours a day. (I suppose, having humans for pets makes us work harder so we stay awake more often.)
Exciting news! I am getting a permanent playmate this afternoon. The mother is bringing home a new cat, about 1 & 1/2 years old who has special needs and would do best with someone who is home all day to watch him. I can't wait! Yay! It's been so boring around here since the flood cleared up.Muddy

Watching the Humans
Cats know how to relax. Humans could learn a few things from us.
I enjoy watching my humans rush around, though. The other night they were getting "dressed" for a party. I don't know why humans want to change their fur every time they wake up, go to sleep and leave for parties, but they do. I made sure I was sitting in the best spot, right in the middle of the doorway, so everyone would have to step over me as they got "ready." (A cat is ALWAYS ready for anything.)
I was mildly amused by my pet humans as they walked here and there, all over the house gathering things like purses, coats, cookies, camera, etc., for the party.
As for me, laying down my head, stretching out my paws and going to sleep is much better.Muddy
