Wednesday Wishes

This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!

My Wednesday Wishes for the week:

1) Self Cleaning Floors - Hey, we have an oven that self cleans, why not my floors? I want them vacuumed and STEAMED. Lily had a playdate tonight. It would be great to get all the animals up onto furniture, push a button and have the floors so clean they could eat off them (because WE wouldn't ever do that, would we?). Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle like a diamond.

2) Clean bill of health for Bob - Fingers crossed I get him in the trap in the morning. He's got an 11am vet appointment. Now, by clean bill of health, I don't mean that he has to be miraculously rid of his Upper Respiratory Infection. But I would like no surprises. No FIV, FIP or FeLV. No "he's suffering kidney failure and you should put him down." I know he's all bones. I know he weighs maybe 5 pounds at the most. THAT I can fix. Kidney failure I can't.

And Wednesday is hoping for a microchip. She's a jealous little kitty and doesn't want another cat in the house to compete for lap space, nap spots and catnip.

3) Weather Control - I think that would be my super power - the ability to control the weather. Make it rain when I'm in the mood for rain. Stop the rain and the sun comes out (but it still remains cool!) for walking Lily in the afternoon. Sun when I want it. Oh, and probably never any wind. I am not a fan at all. Lots of sunshine but crisp weather. Clouds when I need to hike, but not rain clouds. Thunder when I'm in the mood. A little bit of lightening. Oh, that could be so much fun!! I love walking Lily at night but could have done with a bit more than 49 degrees out. I would love to make it 70 degrees when I walk her at night! Then it can dip low again once we're cozy in the house!

What about you - what are your wishes for Wednesday?


  1. You can have one of my wishes for Bob. Poor little guy. If I was going to make a huge wish this week it would be for a house and money to decorate it, but I'd settle for (re)decorating my bedroom. And I'd wish to hear from someone who has been on my mind this weekend. That last one is totally doable, Wednesday, just sayin'.
    - Sophia.

  2. You can have one of my wishes for Bob too. We've just lost our lovely cat to kidney failure so I truly hope you and Bob have no nasty surprises.

    Oh, self cleaning floors would be wonderful. Just wonderful. ;)

  3. I’m wishing for a clean bill of health for Bob too. Let us know what the vet says, I really want to know and I’m sure everyone else does too. I sure hope he’s healthy.

    Self cleaning floors would be nice, and a self cleaning house would be even better. Also, I wish I could stop time so I could write all day, and then look at the clock and realize that not even a minute passed. Maybe that way I could write a whole novel a day! That would be nice!

  4. Controlling the weather would be one of the best powers ever! I would have so much fun with that. :)

  5. Keeping my fingers crossed for Bab!! Don't let them put him down unless they have no choice!!!

  6. Be an all powerful being who goes around and helps people. :)

  7. Self-cleaning floors... I'll take that, please.

    My Wednesday wish? More daylight! The sun is gone too early every day and I need it to stay light a couple more hours. It's depressing when it's dark at 5:30.

  8. When you get the weather control wish can you send some sunshine to the UK please, even just in the summer would be nice! :)

    My Wednesday wish would be more energy please.

    I hope Bob is OK. My dog recently had surgery to remove a lump, so I know how stressful it can be. She (Yes, she's a she) is also called Bob :)

  9. Really hoping it's good news for Bob tomorrow!

  10. I hope you catch Bob. Email me and let me know, okay?

    Self-cleaning floors! With animals in the house...that is a necessity!

  11. Ah, rubbing the kitty, "I wish for my house to sell at the price we're asking/in the time we need it..."

    oh, and of course for Dream Agent. :o) <3 ((hugs))

  12. Why stop at the floor when you can have a whole house that cleans itself? That would be my wish:a self-cleaning house! That way I'd have more time to write.
