i think i'm gonna watch me some NCIS

i awoke to Major cuddling my back. a nice way to wake up. as soon as i rolled over, he gave me one of his deep, gravelly meows. he came out into the living room with me and jumped up on doc and then disappeared. we still don't know where he hides. simon was in the window just watching while Major and i snuggled. he seems to like Major, he lets him in the bedroom and, more surprisingly, on the bed.

here's the roster:

Evie - black, short hair domestic
Vader - black, short hair domestic
Bagira - black, long hair domestic
Freddie - black, short hair domestic with a white spot on her belly
Major - black, short hair domestic
Simon - long hair Ragdoll
Felix - tuxedo, short hair domestic
Lelu - white, short hair domestic

we now have three cats we can't tell apart from a distance. i'm getting better with separating Evie and Vader. her head is rounder and her legs are shorter. Vader is all legs. Major has an extra skinny tail, but his collar is similar to Vader's and he has the same tags hanging off of it. Freddie is tiny and funny looking, so she's easy to identify. when i bleach my hair, i'm going to put a stripe on Vader's head. it was doc's suggestion.

today i asked doc if we could go out to breakfast and a misunderstanding was had and he made a big deal out of it and we ended up not going. instead i fell asleep on the porch for an hour. that was my answer to that.

some people have recommended the Genie Bra to me, since i'm having a real issue with comfort since i started wearing my bra "properly". if any of you have any experience with them, please let me know. i'm looking for any alternative to wearing this constricting thing that cuts into my shoulders and ribs. and braless is not an option for me, the boobs are just too big and too old for that. regular sports bras don't give me the support i need.

awww, Major just came up behind me and started snuggling my back and meowing. he likes to announce himself. he is so soft. his coat is thin, i don't know if it will thicken up with better nutrition or if that's just the way it is. now he's meowing at Bagira. better than the hissing he was doing yesterday. i think he's going to be a mama's boy.

another day another poem

Evie

my belly is
sticking out
the cat is kneading
my stomach
again
i've done it right
there is always
a cat
ready for pets
i am never alone
really
the claws leave
behind tiny
scratches
but there's no
pain
i ruffle her ears
and she mews at me
her purple collar
is worn
scratched at
ragged
like a favorite
trashy t-shirt
her dark green eyes
consider me
and she lays
down
i stare at
the gray sky
there are no clouds
it's all smoke
from the california
wild fires
as it chases
people out of homes
it makes our sunsets
beautiful
i wonder
whether Evie can
smell the smoke
too

Major has claimed me as his big

he and simon are working out an arrangement with regards to my bedroom. so far the closet is okay, but simon has strong objections to major being on the bed. we'll work on that. major is now eating the dog food that red left here in a bowl. he is a strange cat, he will fit right in here.

i didn't have any coffee today until doc made me. i thought i would just be tired, i had no idea at all that i would turn into a raging bitch. doc finally had enough, put my orange juice away and poured me a cup of coffee. i feel much better now. the fifth element is on, i'm caffinated and i was finally able to delete Red from my friends on facebook. there's something wrong in her world, her phone has been logged in to facebook longer than it ever has before. something tells me she's not with it.

i read doc my poem from today and he gave me some constructive criticism on it and i added a new ending. it ties the cat in at the end now. instead of just dropping off and ending suddenly.
