Alice Ann passed away in July of 2011. Late one night, she snuck out of the hose and around the corner, and was hit by a speeding car. Mama misses her very much, but my quality of life has much improved. I'm happy. I purr and trill and enjoy having my mother all to myself.
This past August, Mama and I moved into a house of our very own! I love romping up and down the stairs, rolling on the upstairs carpet, and dragging Springy Toy around the house. Springy is my special friend, so I spend lots of time yowling at her in the "Mama Voice" as I drag her by the fuzzy ball.
Since Mama put up the Christmas tree, I've been kinda bad. I steal ornaments to play with them. Sometimes, to get attention, I grab two lower limbs and shake the whole tree. That's a big deal, because the tree is like 8 feet tall and weighs a lot. Mama gets super PISSED when I do that.
Anyway, have a lovely year. I'll be back soon, hopefully!
