Momma hooman keeps the bottom drawer empty and open so I can curl up in it and be beside her. I like boxes and this desk drawer is just like a box!

I can take calls, chats or even blog … like I’m blogging this blog post right now. Hoomans shouldn’t leave laptops or mobile devices unattended. That’s when we can do our blog post.

Snuck my brothers shrimp


Snuck my brothers shrimp from his special wet treat.

My brother and I both had baths. We both cried. This was his first bath. I have had at least one other bath prior.

We both got a special wet treat that had a tiny whole shrimp 🍤 in it. I ate mine right away.

I then noticed brother walked away from his special wet treat. He left the best thing in there … that shrimp! So I sneaked up, grabbed it! Then pushed back to eat it. I’m sneaky and fast.

Sorry brother you walked away from it and you know the rules! Just saying!

Momma hooman got a picture of me doing it and I’m all wet too!

Firefighter Name Tag - my hoomans got me a name tag in the shape of a firefighter badge. They got it from a flea market in Kodak, TN. It has my name and dadda hoomans phone number on it.

I was rescued by a firefighter 👨‍🚒. He found me in a box on a set of rail road tracks in Corbin, KY. When I lived there, I lived near the fire hall too. I’d get to see and hear the fire trucks all the time. Including me meowing like their siren 🚨.

So it’s official now!

Anyways Special thanks to all the men, women and animals that serve in their communities fighting fires.
