Finnegan's Diary

I Love New Toys! (Finnegan’sDiary)

Mommy always leaves me on Sunday morning and is gone a LONG time. But when she comes home, I’m the first thing she sees when the door opens. I stay on the carpet away from the door because I don’t ever want to be out there in that scary place again! She always says, “Finnegan, I’m home!” When the door closes, I run to be near her. After she checks my water dish, she sits at her big desk and writes. She says she’s transcribing sermon notes. I don’t care what it is, but I am right beside her to help her and to let her know I’m happy she’s back!

Mommy always feeds me more of the yummy food in the can when she has her dinner. We eat together that way. After she cleans the kitchen, we go to the living room where my play area is. She plays with me and chases my balls and finds them for me. I try to reach them when they go under the sofa, but my legs aren’t long enough. Mommy’s are. When we’re finished playing, she turns on the television. I sure want to jump up there and try to catch the things that move, but she won’t let me. She knows when I’m thinking about it and says, “No, Finnegan.” So I do the next best thing and jump in her lap where it is nice and warm and we watch the television together.

Sometimes mommy goes shopping. I just know when she comes back, she will have something for me, too! I wait, facing the door, hoping she will return soon. This week she brought me something really cool! I can scratch on it! I like to do that! Sometimes I sleep on it, too. I asked mommy to take my picture to show off my new toy and to see how handsome I am!

I’m looking forward to next week! I wonder what new toy she’ll buy me? Come back next Wednesday and I’ll share my new adventures with you!

Do You Think I Have Big Feet? (Finnegan’s Diary)

I found a great place to sleep. It’s right beside my mommy. She laughed at me and said “Have you no shame?” But then she took a picture, so I think she doesn’t mind.

Every day, my mousies get stuck under the sofa so mommy has to get down on the floor and look under to find them. I don’t know why they have to do that! I like playing with my mousies a lot!

One of my pretty balls, the orange one, has gone into hiding and neither mommy nor I can find it. It was my favorite one, too.

Mommy says I’m heavy. I’m not sure what that means, but she makes funny noises when she tries to pick me up and says I have a big belly. Yesterday she told me she should have named me Sasquatch because I have Big Feet!

I have a new friend. She’s littler than mommy. She likes to play on the floor with me and she asked if she could have a picture of her with me and my mommy. She calls my mommy G.G. Do you think this picture makes my feet look big?

Tomorrow will be my three week anniversary of escaping from the big cage where I used to feel safe. Now I have lots of places to run and play and explore! Sometimes I leap onto a big counter where I look through a window and see another cat who looks just like me! That cat does everything that I do. It tries to touch me through the window just like I try to touch it. It’s a strange thing.

I’m really happy in my new home. The only time I’m sad is when my mommy goes out the door and leaves me alone for a long, long time. But she always says, “I’m home, Finnegan!” when she comes back. I’m right there waiting for her! I don’t ever want to go away from her. She says I’m more like a dog because I follow her everywhere she goes, except out that door!

I have to go now because mommy wants to do something on the computer. Until next time!
