These are the days I like to remember....Mom says they may be coming back to me soon because I've been being much more tolerant of Pepper, even when Pepper isn't being tolerant of me. For this...she calls me a good boy. I know I am. In the mean time I'm a sun puddle soaker.

Although...kittens you may want to navigate away for this...but cats your old enough.
Today I was sitting in my backdoor watching the outside world around when my old nemesis spotted tabby came onto MY porch! Not only was this making me quite annoyed but he MARKED my bushes in front of my one good eye! Can you believe the nerve! He's trying to take my property right in front of me! So I made a big stink to Mom about going out but it was later in the day and she knows if she lets me out I'll try to stay out all night so she said maybe tomorrow morning. We'll see

On another note: Mom and Dad decided it's a good time to go back to school, they are going to start with Mom. So she's getting all her paperwork and stuff in to be ready this fall. So she goes on-line to start filling out her FAFSA and now she's been complaining about these people called the peds....keds...feds...whatever you get my drift. See Mom is 23 but she no longer lives with her family and her and Dad are not married, her family could never afford to pay for a college education so even when she went to school before she had to save up for it. When Mom first went right out of high school she filled out this thing FAFSA (what is that anyway? Treats?) and they told her, she didnt qualify for any assistance because her Dad should be able to cover it. (Grandpa is a retired E-7 in the Navy and worked retail at the time now he just gets his retirement) So now that Mom isn't living in his house and he doesn't pay for her education she thought maybe she would qualify for some assistance. Well turns out no matter what as far as financing an education goes until you turn 25 your considered dependent of your parents and if they refuse to pay for your education you do no qualify for any kind of assistance except of course a loan. So Moms is going with the loan but that doesnt mean she isn't complaining. She's going to be checking into seeing if theres anything the state could do to help out. But if not she's just gonna bite the loan. Wish her luck!

Congrats on your mom going back to school. She will figure it out, my mom had to take out loans too but it all pays off in the end. Good luck to her filling out all those forms. Keeps us posted and have a great weekend.

Wow, your mummy is AMAZING!! We have so much respect for what she's doing!

Glad to hear that you and pepper are getting closer...

Tygana you are a good boy. I think that other cat is No Good. Set Pepper on him!

Tygana we know you are a good boy - we are glad things are calming down with you and Pepper.

And that stinks about the loans - our mom was a bit older when she tried to get them so she had no idea the government would still consider 23 a dependent. Most insurance won't even do tht!
