I asked my Facebook followers what they wanted to see me post about on my blog. A whole bunch of them said they wanted a post of me being a regular kitty! Don’t they get enough regular kitty-ness at home? Well, anyway, I wanted to make them happy, so here’s a post of my day when I’m not doing a photo session, or a cat show, or going to the store or something. It’s pretty dull, if you ask me! Above, you can see me staring at my human, just after we’ve gotten up for the day. I’m wondering when she is going to put down her iPhone and get me and Boodie breakfast.
Here I am in the kitchen. Can you tell I’m not feeling very patient this morning? My human is slow to get breakfast going some days!
In spite of it being a “regular kitty” day, I really wanted to do a photo session! My human walked by my studio, and there I was sitting on the backdrop and staring at her. But there’s no photo session today. My human promised that she has something planned for me later in the week.
Usually in the mornings during the winter, I spend some time by the heater vent in our office. My human doesn’t like me doing this, since she says it’s not good for my fur. But I ignore her.
I also supervise my human while she works. Because her desk is too messy for me to sit on right now, I share her chair. She usually has lunch at her desk, and then I make sure to supervise her extra closely in case she tries to break for too long!
Our scratch loungers are set up by the leaded glass French doors to the back patio, since they are never used. (We go through the enclosed patio to go out there instead.) I usually spend some time looking out at the birds and squirrels. Can you see the squirrel I’m staring at that’s sitting on the brick ledge of the jacuzzi?
For a Somali, I’m not all that playful. But sometimes I’ll find a toy, like this nip kicker, to play with. There are a few times a week I go crazy… but today wasn’t one of them.
My human often works in the evenings, but I usually just nap on the sofa. Or on cold nights I hang out by the office floor heater some more. Eventually my human shuts down the MacBook and tells me it’s time for bed. In other words, yes, she wakes me up to go to bed!
Sometimes she drags her heels, looking at her iPhone. That’s when I flop down on the rug and give her another impatient look.
I hope my day as a regular kitty didn’t bore you!

Always cool tom see how you spend an off day Summer 🙂
It’s a fun thing to do sometimes, right?
Catherine lin89gg says
Never boring. I love your “regular” kitty photos. I especially love the one with your back legs stretched out
Very beautiful pictures as always!! ❤❤ My Facebook is very slow. It seems like I hardly see any new post until a day or so after they are posted.
Lesley Castle says
I know that given the opportunity, you could have caught that squirrel!
Catherine lingg says
I’ve already seen this blog but enjoyed it again
Lesley Castle says
You are no ordinary kitty Summer. How do I make my own profile pic? Do I have to sign up for something? Thank you.
Summer Samba says
I think you need an account at WordPress.com, then you can go to gravatar.com and create one there.
LESLEY CASTLE says
Oh thank you!

OMG, look at her tail, in the third photo!
The Dash Kitten Crew says
Even an ordinary kitty day seems to have a lot packed it it for you!!!
Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says
You have a busy day snoopervising that human of yours! But you are adorable in it! the only thing missing is a sleeping picture!
Katie Isabella says
I love that last picture too. And I love seeing you being a regular kitty. I saw that squirrel!
Odd question Summer, but I have wondered and so has Mom, about your floors. Do the spaces between the boards cause heel problems with dress shoes? Are humans able to walk across floors and not get their high heels, say, stuck between boards? Gorgeous floors. Enviable.
Summer Samba says
The plank floors are made of soft wood, so spikey heels aren’t allowed on them! Most of my human’s shoes with heels are chunky anyway.
You are NEVER boring Summer and I think even though you are a star and love your shows and therapy visits and shopping it is nice to see you just hanging out at home too!
Mark's Mews says
It sure didn’t bother us ta see you in a not-posed days. Nice to see you also have regular cat life, too. Those last pics were reassuring!
Chirpy Cats says
I always knew there’s a regular gal underneath all that glam…. just purfect, of course!
Such beautiful eyes you have, Summer! With a human to supervise, even your ordinary days are busy.
Lesley Castle says
Love pic 5
Emmit and Mimi says
I loved seeing how a celebrikitty spends her day.. it’s filled with lots of supervision, observation, and relaxation!
That all happened in one day? You’re a very busy kitty. And I lay ON the heater vent, not next to it. I find it warms the furs quite nicely, and it’s more gentle than being blow dried!
William's Kith & Kin says
Boring? That was FABULOUS!
Melissa & Mudpie says
We love seeing you no matter what you’re doing!
Laura Davis says
You are the cutest supervisor ever! I don’t know how your mom manages to get any work done!
The Poupounette Gang says
We really enjoyed reading about the ordinary day of an extraordinary kitty, YOU!
Tama and Genji
I love this ‘day in the life of a normal kitty’ blog! Thank you for sharing Summer!
Cathy Keisha says
Whoa! No wonder you like to work. Heh heh. I hope someday you’ll learn to play. It took 14 years but I finally did.
That isn’t much different to my day, though as my mum’s desk is in our bedroom I make her take an afternoon nap when I see her getting tired. Plus, on cold days I need to curl up against her on the bed!
The Swiss Cats says
It’s nice to see your daily routines at home ! Purrs
Love the last sploot shot!
Pat K says
Those kitty feet laying out next to the heat vent must feel
really good in the heat. You look really good as a “regular
kitty”. I’m sure you are a big help reminding your human to
take care of things around the home.
Summer Samba, I really enjoyed these photos! My kitty gets sooo impatient at breakfast, like I don’t know how to open a can/fill her dish after all these years. Those glass doors are extra nice, as is your whole setting there. If you were mine, I’d def take you everywhere! XXXX
You can never be boring Miss Summer! I enjoy regular kittyness.
You never bore us, Summer! I enjoyed seeing your being regular kitty 🙂 Love the last photo – those legs are irresistible!
Sounds lovely, sweetie!
Ellen Pilch says
Summer, you could never be regular- you are extraordinary 🙂 XO
Lola the rescued cat says
We saw the squirrel! You’re still very busy on a regular day.
Rene S says
Even being a regular kitty, you still have a lot of work to do!
The Florida Furkids says
We loved seeing your “regular kitty” photos. That nip kicker is a HUGE hit here!!

You look pretty normal to us sweet Summer and that’s darn cute!
the ISland Cats says
You do a lot of the same stuff that we do, Summer.
Catscue Catmom says
What a beautiful everyday kitty you are Summer! I love the snoopervising photo, and I did see that squirrel – enjoy your day!
Memories of Eric and Flynn says
I was not bored at all Summer. It is nice to see what you do on an ordinary day.
Love seeing you and your daily routine!
Lesley Castle says
That last pic though!
