My Favorite Place


Hi Pals,

This is my favorite spot in the apartment.   I like to nap here sometimes and it's great for keeping track of my humans if they go away in the car.  I can see them leave and always greet them at the window when they return.  They wave at me when they walk up the side walk to the door.

M says on this  morning we are having a Tornado Drill.   I've been through that once before and didn't find it too scary.   Some man walks around pushing on a horn that has a rubber ball on the end of it.    When he squeezes the red ball, the horn makes a horrible racket, but he doesn't come into the apartment and do it, so I'm not scared.    M says if it was a real warning, they would put me in the PTU and go down the hall where there is a room with no windows!   Sounds boring to me, but she says that is the safest place to be for such a storm.  But since this is just a practice run today, I get to stay in the apartment.

I survived the first Tornado Drill, so I'll survive this one too.   Apartment life isn't too bad, tho I think I'd still rather we lived in the house where I had lots of room to run around.    I run around here when I chase the Nieko Fly, and sometimes I get a case of the crazies and run from the living room into the bedroom and back again just cuz I feel like it..

Until next time pals,

Mario

I am sure you and your folks miss your house, but I am glad you are adjusting.

Mario you have the PURRFECT spot to watch for your humans! Did you know that I live in an apt/condo building? Yep! I do! My Grandpa Bobo also lived in an apt and he was able to see my Mom come and go like you can. I am on second floor and sometimes Mom and Dad trick me and come in where I can't see them.
That sounds like a nice, safe place to live, that is good that they have drills like that to keep you all safe!
Love, Cody and Mom

Practice is good, and so is a place ta go. We have a good place ta go in the basement unner the stairs and against the foundation wall where the cement steps are outside. But when there is anny sudden stuff, we just vanish fer an hour, so TBT says it would be really unlikely he could get us into PTUs in an emergency...

Great spot! Mario, we're happy you're settling in so well!

Mario, We are glad you have found an amenable and comfy spot in your new home.
Tornados sound really scary. It is impawtant to purr-actice so as to know exactly what to do and where to go if one of them effur blows your way (which We hope it neffur will).

BeadedTail said...

We're glad you found a good spot to keep an eye on your peeps! Tornado drills don't sound like fun but we're glad they're just drills and not the real thing. We don't have tornadoes here so we have no clue what they're like but our Mommy and Daddy are from Kansas and they say they're scary! Hope you have a great weekend!

Cathy Keisha said...

Mario, you got a great window perch!! I think you'll grow to really like your new apartment. I may be about the size of mine and I love running back and forth from one end of the other. I don't get too tired out. I hope you never have one of those tornado things.

La Cabeza Grande said...

Dear Mario, I'm glad to see your M and D kept your Bird & Squirrel cable service intact! So furry important when other stuff changes to have your comfy stuff around you. Hugs and purrs to you and yours.

pee ess: Sometimes we just get struck by the zoomies. Just enjoy them!

Austin Towers said...

Tornadoes sound a bit scary! The Staff says I'm a bit like a tornado when I get the zoomies MOL! Glad you are settling in, buddy! :-)

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Mario that looks like a great spot to get just the right view from. Wow we hope you don't have ANY tornadoes, but we are glad you'll be safe and sound if by chance one comes your way.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

We didn't know you live where you have to have Tornado drills. We're glad the drill went well. And we love your spot.

Deb Barnes said...

That's a fantastic napping spot!! We would love it for bird watching! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang

Basil Widdairs said...

Herman TattleCat said...

That's a great idea, having a Tornado Drill. We get Tornadoes every year here, and while the wind is whipping and the sirens are blaring, I watch my mom run around grabbing kitties to stick inside cages under the staircase. It's the only room in the house she thinks is more than moderately safe. I don't like any of this Tornado stuff. I think we should vote not to have them. Who's with me? *raises paw*

William's Kith & Kin said...

Mario, that is a wonderful place to nap! Our windows won't accommodate one of those. :-( You're one lucky guy!

The Indulged Furries said...

Hopefully you never have to go in the windowless room for real. My mom spent a few years in Wisconsin and remembers the tornado warnings. We prefer California where things might get a little shaky for a few seconds.

It's wonderful that you have such a large perch in front of that big window. You can roll around and not worry about falling off.

Team Tabby said...

Hi Mario, We can see that you are getting used to your new home and your cat tree is in the perfect spot for watching da birdies.

Glad to hear you can take the tornado drill as a matter of fact thing. Hope you never experience a tornado though!

lots of purrs from us,

Mindy & Mike



Jans Funny Farm said...

Glad you still have some running room. Got to have room to exercise.

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

having a mom who knows what to do when things get tricky is very important to keeping you safe.

Nellie Kowalik said...
