Trying My Hand at Memes: Not Worthy

Remember "Wayne's World" on SNL (and later, movies)? Well, every time my cat takes a nap, she's not only adorable, but also "not worthy":

Reflections and Kitties for the 2016 A to Z Blogging Challenge

I love animals! This is only my second time doing the challenge with this blog (I also have my main blog), but it exists partly because of the challenge. My main blog exists because of the challenge, and I had also wanted to start a pet blog because I love animals so much. So, the challenge was the main thing that pushed me to actually get it started, because I thought it would be so much fun to put up all my cute kitty photos with a purpose behind it.

The rest of this entry is basically a copy of what I put on the reflections post on my main blog, plus a cute kitty photo at the end:

This time, however, I did have some trouble. just a couple of days after the challenge began, I had to take my mom to the ER. I was visiting her in the hospital every day for a while, then brought her home, where I had to take care of her and handle much more than I ever had before. It was very nerve-wracking, and scary.

During all of this, everyone has been telling me that I had to take care of myself as well, so doing the challenge was part of that, even though I missed a few days. I really enjoy doing these posts, so it's more fun than work for me. My day job is in computer engineering and software engineering, so this blog is just pure fun for me. So, even though I missed some days, I thoroughly enjoyed the days in which I participated, even if it was sometimes difficult "doing something for myself."

Miss Kitty has a black chin, which gives her what I like to call her "oops face"

Z is for Zippy

Cats can zip around like lightning when they want to. This usually happens all of a sudden, without warning, and sometimes at odd hours. Does that make them a little Zany as well? Possibly!

Y is for Yogi

Cats love yoga. They just don't know that it's anything special, or that some humans strive to do it well, or that it's even a thing at all. They're just trying to be themselves, which means stretching and grooming. What they know doesn't matter though, because they are just so darned cute when they do it, especially that famous downward dog position. I even have a paper towel holder that my mother gave me for Christmas of a cat doing my favorite kitty yoga pose.

X is for X-Factor

Kitties have that "thing" that makes us love them more than most humans. Who can resist such an adorable face?! And those sweet purrs! And those talented grooming positions! And that climbing ability! Yep, cats have it all.

W is for Warm

Kitties love to be warm and cozy. Once in awhile, they will go out in the cold to play, or even in the rain if they are the adventurous type. But they're favorite spot is on a warm lap or a soft blanket. They love to luxuriate and snuggle together or with their favorite human.

V is for Vocal

Some cats are very quiet nearly all the time, but some can be extremely vocal. My most vocal baby is G.T. When it's time to eat, he yells out to me, and I'm not the only one who thinks it sounds like he's yelling, "MOM!!! MOMMMM!!!" And then when he's just talking to me, he makes a sound similar to "mama, maaaamaaaaa!" That's when it's time to go give him snuggles.

U is for Unknown

So many kitties out there have yet to be discovered. Some are born in the wilderness and will never be known by anyone. I'm just happy that my babies are no longer unknown to me. My family and I are so happy to know them!

R is for Remarkable

All kitties are remarkable. Just think about al the little things that make a cat what it is. Every cat has a very distinct personality. Every cat has tremendous hunting capabilities. Each one can climb high into a tree, and jump from fairly high places. Each kitty has its own individual markings with slight "imperfections" (which of course make them even cuter and more perfect to us).

Q is for Queen

If you have a mama kitty, you will soon learn that she is queen of everything. She gets exactly what she wants at all times, and will complain bitterly when you mess up. And somehow, this is endearing, and you love your mama baby (not to be confused with baby mama) even more for it. For me, this mama baby is Miss Kitty.
