Finnegan's Diary

Rain, Pain, Cold (Finnegan’s Diary)

It’s been raining! The rain speckles my windows and I try to catch it when it starts running away, but it’s on the other side. It’s funny to see the birdies between the raindrops. Mommy says the weather changes will be fun for me now because I can enjoy them and still be warm inside with her.

Mommy moved the big thing I would get my balls stuck behind yesterday. She said it would make the house feel warmer. I watch her add big pitchers of water to it and I ask her to explain, but she just smiles and pets me. She said it is a “hoomidifryer” but I don’t understand what that means. I only know it’s noisy. I don’t like it as much now.

After mommy finished with the hoomidifryer, she left. I don’t like it when she leaves me alone. She had to get two shots, one in each arm. A flu shot and a covid shot. I felt sorry for her. I don’t like shots. After lunch, she didn’t go to her office like she usually does. She sat in the recliner. Her arms hurt, so I spent the rest of the day cuddling with her. That’s my job, and it’s my favorite thing to do besides play. We watched tv and even took a nap together. Mommy said I’m too big for her to get a picture when I’m on her lap. So she took two pictures, one of my feet!

With the colder weather, I don’t spend as much time looking out the window at night. I’d rather be on the big bed beside my mommy’s legs where it’s nice and warm. Sometimes when I know she’s not going to leave, I take my afternoon nap there. And sometimes I curl up in mommy’s recliner if she’s doing something else. She laughs when she comes back, so I guess it’s a good thing to do.

I’ve learned how to get up on high things beside my cat tree. I can sit on the bookcase!!

Yesterday I learned how to use the barstools to get on the big counter so I can watch mommy when she’s in the kitchen. She doesn’t like me to do that and the first time, she yelled at me! I don’t like being yelled at. I get scared. When that happened, she hurried to me and lifted me from the counter and loved on me telling me it was okay and she loved me. That made me feel safe again. So this morning I jumped up there again. I just can’t help myself!

Mommy says I’m very cuddly and handsome. I’ve changed a lot from when I first came here to live with her. What do you think?

Well, I better get off here. Mommy says she has another commitment and will need the computer. I’ll talk to you next Wednesday! Love, Finnegan.

    1. He has changed my life. I didn’t realize how much I was grieving the loss of my three cats within a year and a half of each other. Nineteen years with them. Finnegan has brought joy into my everyday life. We were meant to be together. I believe this was God’s leading.
