Classical Minded Cat

Me taking a cat nap
(circa: December 2014)
Whenever Morgan is heading out, whether for a while or for a short period and save for those times it slips his mind, he puts on the radio for me so that I will have my favorite station to listen to while he is away.

If, like me, you have an ear for classical music, you might enjoy listening to VPR Classical Radio as well.

Classical music helps to sooth me and also sometimes aids in drowning out certain loud noises coming from either elsewhere inside or outside our apartment building.

It is the same type of music or possibly even the same radio station that the Central Vermont Humane Society (CVHS) had playing in its lobby, which is where my crate and I happened to be located, when Morgan came to adopt a new cat back in  early December of last year (2014).

Oftentimes, when Morgan is off on one of the public access online computers checking his email and doing whatever he does online, using his headphones to do so, he streams this particular station.

Since he enjoys this same type of music as I do, Morgan sometimes puts the station on when he is home and does not have the TV on, including when he reads the paper or a book and so on.

The exceptions to our having VPR Classical radio on is when they are playing opera music, which neither of us enjoy. Morgan had put the station on when he went out one time a few months ago and, later on, it was playing opera music. Upon his return, I let him know about how I did not care for it one bit (true that!).

One Fast Cat Exercise Wheel: Working Out

*Updated* (with the usual edits and the like)

As reported within an update made to a previous post (here), my One Fast Cat exercise wheel arrived earlier this month, however assembly of it was delayed for a time due to certain technical complexities that cropped up for Morgan during the assembly process.

After Morgan was able to get other things that needed doing done, including preparing for the annual apartment inspection that took place late last week, and then resting up a bit, on Sunday afternoon he was able to successfully complete the assembly of the exercise wheel.

Once that was finished he brought it back up to our apartment, moved some of the furniture around in order to make room for the wheel and set it up for me so I could thoroughly inspect and check it out.

He tried enticing me to get on it several different times afterwards, using treats and later toys, but the most I was initially willing to do is to put my front paws on it.

The three following days I eventually put a…

Welcome to my blog. My name is Cleopatra, however most humans refer to me as Cleo. I am a cat that is nearly two years old, comfortably residing in the Central Vermont region and serve as the case manager of an older human male who is also my caretaker. His name is Morgan and he will be blogging posts on my behalf.

This blog of mine will serve as my cat journal to the world, opining about everyday events as well as life in general from the perspective of a cat and also about living with my human.

Before I came to live with Morgan in early December of last year (2014), I was staying at the Central Vermont Humane Society (CVHS) for a while. Prior to his going to CVHS to adopt a new cat, Morgan came across my profile on their Website. He was obviously taken by me and, being likewise, I decided to adopt him.

Sampling of One Fast Cat Exercise Wheel Satisfied Customer Videos

*Update*: My cat exercise wheel arrived on Tuesday (April 14th), as scheduled, however certain technical complexities cropped up for Morgan during the assembly process and, therefore, assembly completion will be delayed for a time (possibly until either late next week or early the week following; assuming everything works out as is hoped, once the exercise wheel is successfully assembled and operating, a blog post will be posted concerning the same).

While patiently awaiting the arrival and assembly of my very own One Fast Cat exercise wheel (which, as I understand it, is due to be delivered sometime tomorrow), what follows is a select sampling of rather satisfied customers of the exact same product that is posted for your viewing pleasure (via YouTube):
