SKILLS....and Grandma Update

I HAVE'EM, MOM DOESN'T!!
Recently I decided to check out my cat tree after ignoring it for several weeks.  Mom could tell I was about to jump so she 
had hopes of getting a mid air photo...but she lacks in hand
eye coordination!! 


My catnip pillow was my target but it fell right after I landed

I WILL JUMP TO THE TABLE FIRST
I CAN STOP ON THE DIME!! 


 Then to the floor..oooops HELLO KITTY REFLECTION
 NOW BACK UP AGAIN

I love jumping...and I love teasing Mom when she is 
trying to snap at just the right moment.

FINALE!!! (ALMOST)
MOM JUST MISSED ME FLYING THROUGH THE AIR WITH THE GREATEST OF EASE.
FYI:  THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT MY FELINE FLYING SKILLS
'CAUSE I GOT ME SOME SKILLS FOR AN 11 YEAR OLD!!!
 Mom's skills need serious work!! 

UPDATE ************
We thank you all for you inquiries about my G-ma
She has been diagnosed with, Lewy Body Dementia.
 Unfortunately, hallucinations go along with this
type of dementia. We hope the new medicines she started will help with these so that she can have some peace of mind.
She awakes at night thinking there are animals in bed with her.  We know this must be very scary for her.

  3. You sure can fly high Madi! I sure hope your grandma's medicine helps her. It wouldn't be too scary to wake up with a kitty or doggie next to you, but I doubt that is what she is imagining.

  4. Wow! That is amazing. Go, Acrobat Madi! I kind of can jump...(Not really) When cat wants a flying picture, she video tapes it and copies out part of the video. Woof! Kate has introduce three more pets into house! They are on Books, Poems, Pets, and crafts. Woof! Echo

  5. Those are some awesome moves Madi. We can see why your Mom has trouble keeping up with the action.

  7. Madi. Gail always blames the delay on digital cameras for action photo failures...
    We are very sorry about G-ma's dementia, and hope with all our hearts that the medication can stop the hallucinations.
    Very best wishes,
    Gail and Bertie.

  8. None of us kitties are young here - we range between 10 and 12 - and we are all very active too! My human had never heard about Lewy Body Dementia before and looked it up online. I am purring that the medications help with your G-ma, especially her hallucinations. That must be awful to have to cope with.

  15. Oh Madi and Mom we are so sorry for your Grandma. We sure hope the medicine will help her. We are sending lots of prayers her way.
    And Madi, we got to give the Mom an A+ for effort to get you flying through the air. We thought those pictures are just terrific. That is so hard to do to get you kitties in flight.
    Hope you have a great day.
    By the way, our Splitters is home.

  16. Madi, we just have to say that your mom ought to have picked up your catnip pillow and put it back up on your cat tree. Your servant needs some training.

  18. Wow, you're such an acrobat! Grreat job. Momma was wondering if you would talk to my kitty siblings about how much fun a cat tree is. She got them one for Christmas, and they ignore it!

  19. you do have some true skills at jumping. i like the one of you on the table with the sunbeams behind you. ask mom if she has sport mode on her camera, both my point and shoots and dslr have sport modes, it will help get the action. look through the menu, bet it is there.
    sorry to hear about the dementia. my dad had this and his hallucination was an elevator door opening in his room with scary men getting off, he had that one at home, at the home were he lived in GA at both nursing facilities here, same hallucination over and over. tell mom to watch for worse hallucinations that can be caused by the meds to stop it. that is what happened to daddy, the meds made the hallucinations worse. some people it helps and some not.
    what they told me at the memory unit, was to go into their world and act like you see it to, do not tell them they are not there. what i did for daddy was say, ok daddy i shut the door they are gone. so try that, as in the animals are here but they love you or i saw them to but i put them out the door and they are gone. it worked great with daddy.

  26. Madi, thank you to you and your mom for your note about Lucy. That means a lot to me.

    You are quite the jumper! I wish Annie would jump like that to help her lose some weight but her legs are so short. I'm so sorry about your G-Ma and hope the new meds help her and that she won't be scared. I know that must be tough for your mom.

  27. Pawsome jumping skills indeed Madi!! We do however, think your Mom got some great pictures.

    We know just how hard it is on one with Dementia (and their loved ones.) At least there is a diagnosis and we'll be praying that the med's work and kick in fast. We're sending your Grandma the POTP and lot's of doxie love.

    Hugs,

  34. Madi Oh Madi I could not believe what I saw today. I saw an Ohio license plate that read ~ now get this ~ it read MADI KAT. We had our camera and Lee was trying and trying to get the shot unfortunately the car zipped up on the interstate and we had to stay on the highway. Just like your Mom trying to get you in mid air we failed.
    Thanks for being a friend

  35. Well, we think those are some pretty good action shots, Madi! We know your mom will catch you in mid-air one of these days!

    And we're purring for your g-ma and hope the medicines help her.

  36. Wow, you are quite the jumper, Madi. Our Mom isn't very good at action shots of us either.

    We are so sorry to hear about Grandma. Mom had never heard about Lewy Body Dementia before but she did some reading about it. Our Dad's younger sister may have early onset Alzheimer's, a very difficult time for the family. Their Dad had it too, but he was a much older man.

    We hope the meds help Grandma and Mom gets some time to relax.
