    Dom & John (Vol. II)

    My morning routine consists of a few stretches, some sharpening of my claws, and a partial bath (because I usually save the deep cleaning for the evening when I can use a human’s lap as a wash basin). If I don’t hear footsteps upstairs by the time I have finished preparing for the day, I will venture up there and loudly vocalize my distaste for their need to sleep in. Who really needs to sleep eight hours at a time? I know I don’t! That’s what “cat naps” are meant for during the day. These humans can just be so unproductive at night.???? Anyway… by the time my humans come…

    Dom & John

    When they brought him into the house, never did he suspect that he’d be tasked with the challenge of residing with and helping to raise someone younger than he. After all, he was only four months old at the time, what life experiences did he have that he could possibly teach to someone else? Apparently, it doesn’t take much to show someone else the ropes around here. The name is John, John the Cat. Some would describe me as an oddly shaped, long haired grey and white kitten. My front legs are shorter than my back legs and therefore makes me look like a hot rod car with my back…

    Little Boy

    A letter to my little boy… Your baby belly hangs out from underneath your nine-month-old shirts (which has been happening for a couple weeks now) and you’re not even eight-months-old yet. I can’t help but to want to eat you all up and kiss that little tummy just to hear you giggle with excitement. You are determined to accomplish something new everyday and it’s super frustrating for you when you don’t meet your own expectations. In that sense, you’re exactly like me! But don’t be too hard on yourself, baby; you’ll keep practicing and excel next time! To have your innocence would be such a blessing. You see your little…

    Urgent Care

    Well, today was not our day. Today, I had to take my baby to urgent care for something I couldn’t help him with. Today, I felt helpless. Today, a fear of mine came true just having to take my baby to receive medical treatment. Today was just not our day. The morning started out like any other morning: diaper change, nursing, and some morning snuggles in bed. Dominic and I talked about his feet, hands, nose, and I told how much I loved him while giving him kisses on those chunky cheeks. What I noticed was that when I kissed his right side of his face, he winced and whined.…

    The Struggle

    Today was a test of my patience and abilities as I learn to understand the responsibilities of my new position. I don’t want to dwell on negativity, but this day impacted me so much that I felt the need to journal about it and decide what to do to turn the day around. Recently, my position at work changed and it was a decision that I did not agree with. I challenged the decision (respectfully, of course), but in the end, I was moved to a different position. Change can be a good thing, but I am a stubborn person and I have this plan in my mind that I…
