Peter has been giving me a hard time because I haven’t been updating Truffle. Truffle has her own rules and is very good at ignoring everything. She is now officially bigger than Mooshie. Of course Moosh is skinny as her intensinal issues continue. But they get along pretty well. Truffle eats everything. We let Mooshie outside on lanai to take breaks from her rambunctious little sister.
Here are a couple of videos from months ago
She definitely makes us laugh.
The funniest time each day has to be when “we” clean the litter box. Cleaning the litter box is her favorite participation sport. Peter said he would be embarrassed if we took video of “LitterFace”. Just remember where she has been when she throws herself on you and gives you kisses! Luckily, Mooshie has taught her to be a pretty clean cat.

I’m waiting patiently for Truffle to settle down for her morning nap so that I can work on Mom and Dad’s Easter costumes. Sewing with Truffle is quite the adventure!
I just read my sisters’ post on New Beginnings. My only thought for 2009 is that I have to start having more fun! More fun = more energy = more productivity… I hope!
So in that light, while I should be writing a professional blog that isn’t much fun, I am again writing on the happenings with Truffle which is too much fun. We’ve had her just 2 weeks and it seems like forever.
She is slowly learning our routines.
When Mooshie waits every morning for her treats, now Truffle jumps up on the counter and waits for her treats. This happens because when I tried to give Truffle treats on the floor, she would just bomb at Mooshie and eat her treats. So I put Truffle up on the counter and gave her treats there. At least Mooshie gets to eat her treats in peace.
Whenever I go to clean the litter box, my helper comes along. For a few days, she would just sit outside the box and watch. I thought the ghost of Widgit must have whispered in her ear “You gotta watch that mom to make sure she cleans the box good enough”. Then one day, she draped herself over the edge the box, and watched. The next day she sat IN the box and watched. Well… watching doesn’t happen now. She has to help every “literal” step of the way! It takes longer, but I can’t help but laugh.
The whole house is now a toy pen. We have about 6 mice, 3-4 stick toys and at least 3 balls which move around the house with reckless abandon. I heard this odd clicky noise the other day and went to investigate to find Truffle, taking one of her stick toys up the stairs.
She has a new funny place to sleep — on our wine rack. I can’t imagine it being comfortable but it is pretty funny. She also watches TV from there. Last night she watched at least 15 minutes of Sci-Fi Friday with Peter… she thinks aliens are fun. Only occasionally does she attack the screen!
Her new favorite game is called “Casually Walking By”. Of course this takes a human to play with.. she hides (or so she thinks) under the bed or behind the corner and waits for you to “casually walk by” when she ambushes you. She’ll do this over and over again!
Our day of no medical care was just that – one day. We took Truffle in and she has ear bacteria…so now we are cleaning and putting drops in her ears. Mooshie has definitely picked up the respiratory infection but hopefully will get over it without drugs…they stress her more than being sick. Of course this morning Truffle “The Little One” started sneezing again. I wonder if she caught it back from Moosh?
They are getting closer. Last night when Peter came to bed, Moosh came up (as usual) to cuddle and then Truffle came up to cuddle… and they all cuddled together. I’d been asleep for hours.
Truffle has several new nicknames:
- Trouble – when she gets into someplace and creates a mess. Like when she sent my 6″ stack of papers flying from my desk over the 1/2 wall and falling down the stairwell!
- Terrorist Truffle – when she attacks Mooshie who is trying to use the litterbox.
- Truffle the Terrible – when she decide bedtime is play time and pounces on your every move.
- Little One – Mom’s affectionate name when Truffle is being cute or sleeping.
Truffle is having a great time helping with Christmas. She keeps knocking the garland off the table and burying her mouse in it … and playing! She is hard to get a picture of she moves so fast! It was interesting being woken up this morning with my little Christmas present bonking me on the nose. The true joys in life come in small packages!
This morning I got this photo of our 2 girls together. Ok, they were so busy eating that they wouldn’t look up for me.
Yes, Mooshie is actually stretched over Truffle to eat. I don’t know why Truffle didn’t move but they are getting a little more used to each other. Of course, Truffle is eating Mooshie’s special intestinal diet food and Moosh is eating Truffle’s kitten food with medicine in it. How do you win?
Yesterday Truffle learned about “Under”. She was fascinated finding everything under the refrigerator, oven, closets and furniture. Anything that was “under” is now “out”. Today she discovered that we birds outside our windows — I do hope our screens are secure.
I did an open house today trying to get back in the swing of things; it was very slow but had a few realtors and a neighbor come by. I was pretty upset with myself that I forgot my IPod that had my Christmas music on it.
Ok – Truffle is tons of fun. It really changes your attitude in the morning when you see this little black 3 lbs of love come bounding at you full force. Everything she does is full force! Everything is fun and exciting. She is afraid of nothing. She has explored just about everywhere including the dishwasher, refrigerator and cabinets. She has learned how to get up on the kitchen island and does so with reckless abandon. She even gets excited about getting her pills – though she doesn’t like the eyedrops much.
Peter decided to try to work upstairs where she has more to play with. He had to get me to hit the capture button for him but here is a slice of 2 minutes with Truffle.
