So if you're there, too, drop by
sometime and say "hi" or something. We have a long way to go before we
get the fan page
the way we want it, but we're getting there.
Also along that line, we've managed to get some more of the past
issues of Mews Nooz
the Mews Nooz
Things. As you look around, you will
see that in the beginning our ezine was called "Cat's Meow"!

We hope you have a terrific weekend, and we'll see you next time!
P.S. We have
the most AWESOME
readers on the planet! This means YOU! And we're "jumping up and down
excited" to WELCOME
the new subscribers that have
joined our weekly "reader's circle". Feel free to share "Mew's Nooz"
with your "furry furriends" and their "beans". Or at least give them
the link to our sign-up box at Kittens 'n
Things. They'll thank you for
their very own copy.

the front door to meet us as we walked in the door.
So while it might seem to you like your kitty is bored or otherwise
disengaged in what
you want him
or her to do, chances are it's really your kitty trying to
engage you in what he or she wants to do.
I've also noticed that if I go to bed later at night than I usually do,
Billy will either already be upstairs waiting for me...or, he will come
down to get me. He may also even sit at the foot of the steps "hoping,
most likely" that I will hurry up and go upstairs so he can go to bed.
And when I say, "come on, let's go to bed", it's like the "cows are
coming home", or I'm the Pied Piper, as they all slowly get in line and
follow me upstairs!
So, since it's apparent your kitty needs a routine as much as you do
(although you can deviate from yours occasionally) it's good to feed
your kitty at the same time -- or to keep to as reasonable a schedule
as possible for her. This includes your "comings and goings" from your
home, what you play for music or TV while you're gone, and your thought
to what your kitty will eat and when!
