Least-documented feline member of the household

Meet Daisy. She's my mom's kitty and is staying with us for about a year while my mother builds a house. Daisy is considerably older than Hen and Edgar (15 v. 3 and kitten), and it shows. She doesn't like them, but they keep trying to be her friends anyway. Daisy often talks about "kids today" and "impertinence". We've started calling her the Dowager. She is a good kitty, though. Her best trick is giving backrubs if you lie down on the bed, and she really really likes to be brushed. In this picture she is saying, "Why is your guest room wallpaper so ugly?" She is quite frank.

In other kitty news, how could this creature possibly be the same one that pulls out all your embroidery floss and turns it into a mangled ball?Oh, it kills me when the cats do things that cats are supposed to do or things that storybook cats do, like fall asleep in baskets with toy cats, and play with balls of yarn while you knit, and lovingly groom one another. Someone ought to write a book about the cat that ties knots in embroidery floss.

Because it's FUN mommy!! It's fun to take our little claws and pick up the thread and then see if we can chew it and pull and few pieces here and there!

From the look on Daisy's face I think you have her comments down-pat (not sure what that expression means but it seems to work). The Dowager is a perfect nickname for her and I hope you have more stories about her while she visits.
