The Old Guy … Back To The Unfinished Manuscript …

When working on the forgotten and “unfinished” book manuscript, it can be a challenge when the Laptop is consistently occupied by the help (Kat). Put away in 2006, the manuscript was found during a basement cleanup in 2018. With no efile for working or reference, the pages have to be re-entered into a computer for editing and possibly future publishing. The re-writing and creative writing progress often can be measured by the amount of help I receive.

Yep lazy bones … time to get to work …

Whoa … PRESSING keys with your NOSE is still PRESSING KEYS …

Yeah … that innocent look … I might believe it if I didn’t see that look forty time a day.

After a long day at the keyboard it’s time for a break!

The Old Guy … Well … With Much Consideration … Compromise …

Bargaining And Compromise …

A paw cleaning break early in the morning before negotiations …. I think I sense an air of anticipation …

I feel I am at a disadvantage. It is difficult to bargin and haggle with cute …

After much back and forth between Kat and I, it was decided that I give Kat half the kitchen table with the stipulation that she stays off the sink and counter space, off my keyboard, doesn’t bother my stuff and stays out of my medicine weekly/daily meds box. My half of the kitchen table technically is my writing/blogging table. So far, the compromise has held though she tends to intrude all over my space especially when I am trying to load my insulin syringe. She likes to play with the plunger cover.

The Old Guy … Oh Noooooo … Who Is That?

Oh Noooooo … .

Kat tries to look behind the newly placed obstacle in order to discover who has invaded her territory … 

A quick swat didn’t seem to help much … who is that female?

The Old Guy … Play Time … With Wrasslin’

It’s Play Time …

Cats being cats … Sizing each other up.

The wrasslin’ begins … Pumpkin does hold her own most of the time despite the weight disadvantage … 

It continues into my chair … It’s getting where I don’t hardly get to sit in my chair anymore … and my store bought sit down donut type cusion has cat hair all over it …

Then there’s naptime …

The Old Guy … Fostering A Kitten Needing A Home …

Then I gave it a name …

This is Pumpkin, a yellow male 4-5 weeks old. Yes, I know about if you name/feed it, it’s yours. He does eat dry food already and small treats. He also uses the liter box after being shown where it is. This fine fellow slept on me last night and plays by himself very well. Like all cats he acts like he doesn’t know or speak English, but he does climb up my chair and onto my lap wanting his tummy rubbed, Few adjustments needed with this one, but he has to go. Kat is not social. I have to referee their time together and give time outs in separate rooms. I can foster him for a while but he needs a home.

I was helped during breakfast with Pumpkin walking and sitting on my laptop keyboard. Thankfully, I wasn’t at an important part of anything. He probably doesn’t know what to think of Kat, but he hasn’t been aggressive at all. I have found fostering a cat is easier than a puppy … but just barely.

The Old Guy … Did I Do That? … Oh Noooooooo …

Oh Nooooooooo … .

Yes … she is cute, cuddly and supposedly innocent lying in my chair on my soft sittin’ pillow …. Mysteriously curious during photo shoots, or at rest … she misses nothing. But … a coiled tiger of energy rests inside … that can be awake and functioning within a single breath.

I was getting ready for church when Kat, fresh from a cat nap,  jumped up on the table, got tangled in my camera strap and pulled the steadfast photographic instrument off the wooden surface and onto the floor. Alas, the Nikon 18-105 mm VR lens was broken beyond repair (body damage), and the double battery grip/pack an unfortunate recipient of the same fate. A quick damage tally came to $400.00 USD or more. An expensive lesson learned about what you put on table tops.

The Old Guy … Crafty-Curious-Able To Leap …

Crafty & Curious-And … .

I was caught off guard when Kat came to live with me. I greatly underestimated her. And even greatly doesn’t describe the length and depth of my ineptness. I was under the impression and thought she was a sweet little soft kitty that loved naps, playing with stuffed mice and looking outside at the birds from the back of the couch. Along with my scratched up legs, arms and hands … I am learning.

Twice I caught her up on the stove or at the kitchen sink and countertop. Scolding her didn’t seem to make an impression. I was lost to find a solution. Then one afternoon, she must have forgotten I was sitting at the kitchen table working on the computer. She jumped into the other kitchen chair, then jumped onto the small food preparation ledge in front of the microwave and was almost ready to jump onto the stove when I hollered at her. It’s not practical to move the microwave because I needed the ledge to stir food and the likes when cooking. Moving the chair into the back bedroom wasn’t a solution because I needed it for food prep. So, after thinking it over, the temporary fix was to block the ledge with a pizza box and a moist wipe container. I also  keep the chairs pushed up to the table when not in use. So far this temp fix has stopped further feline exploration of the sink, counter and stove top. It has not stopped the demand for explanations.
