Hello, all my loyal followers!
I've lived at Michelle's house for about a month now, and I still haven't popped. But I don't mind: I’m being spoiled with so much love.
It is so hard to believe that just four weeks ago I was walking the streets in cold, lousy weather. My life is so different now! The sun shines in my window each day, and I bask in its glow while I relax, eat, and purr.
I’m told I’m at the Pregnant Pampered Spa, and to enjoy each day. Michelle says once I have these babies I will be busy taking care of them and won't have much time to myself! Well, we'll see about that. How does Michelle know what being a mama cat is like? As far as I know, she's never given birth to kittens before.
Each day is an adventure. Just a few evenings ago, when I was exploring the house looking for a new place to nap, I heard a huge BANG! It nearly scared the fur right off of me. I looked around frantically for a place to hide. In the corner stood a big wooden bureau, so I squeezed myself underneath it. I felt much safer in the close, dark space... whatever monster was out there couldn't hurt me!
Anyway, I must have hid myself pretty well, because Michelle came looking for me and walked right past my hiding spot. I think humans must have a really hard time smelling: I was right under her nose and she didn't know! It's a good thing they have us cats to look after them. I shudder to think what would happen to them otherwise.
Michelle started to call my name, and she sounded a little panicked. I felt sorry for her, and thought, Hey, if Mom is out walking around, the monster must be gone. I poked my head out from under the bureau, but that's as far as I got. I pulled and tugged... but I was stuck!
I looked behind me and found to my surprise that my big belly was keeping me under the bureau. I was aghast. That has NEVER happened to me before! As a cat, I have floating collarbones, which means that if I can fit my head through something, the rest of my body will follow. Well, the rules have all changed now that I'm lugging these kittens around! Good grief.
I cried for Mom and she came over with lots of snacks and nice words to encourage me. I looked at her and let her know that it would take a lot of snacks to get me out! But little by little, I managed to squeeze through.
Now there's a blanket blocking me from going under there again, but I don't need to be told twice. OUCH!
I received a gift of flowers today! Michelle put them in my room to fancy it up bit. The vase is placed up high, since I’m not allowed to snack on them... you know, I'm hungry all the time and always craving new things! Of course, Mom insisted on a few pictures to thank whoever sent them to me. THANK YOU, kind stranger!

I still can't say how many kittens I am having, but with the heaviness and size of my belly, the sky’s the limit! I want to surprise everyone.
Michelle says she can feel my babies moving. She says I look like I swallowed a couple of oranges! I find myself lying more and more awkwardly each day just to get comfortable. By the way, is it normal for your nipples to get bigger when you're pregnant? Asking for a friend.
Until next time, my dear readers...maybe then there will be more of us!
P.S. You can care for me and my kittens by donating to HTAT!
