First of all, when I’m taking my bath Mom should not come around with that flashy box thing. What’s the matter with her? Doesn’t she realize that I need my privacy? So what if I’m in the middle of the room where Hemingway and everyone else can see me. Mom should know that Hemingway and I own the house so we can do what we want. Oh, and she may not realize it fully yet, but we also own her!!!
Secondly, Mom seems to think that it’s so funny that I’m scared of germs. Ya’ see………at night I like to sleep on the other pillow up by Mom’s head. She thinks it’s so cute when she calls it “my piddow” but I tolerate that. I get all settled and start purring and drift off into dreams of catnip, sunshine, bread, toys, birdies and squirrels. I’m so content and comfy and then Mom coughs! I jump up and run out of the room. Mom even tries to stifle her coughs but I can still hear those germs waiting to fly out into the world…….My World!!! Mom tries to reassure me that she’s not sick and that it’s just a reaction to one of her medications. I’m not buying it. She’s got human germs and I don’t want them. So, I do what any normal cat would do and I get out of there. I can still hear her laughing….and coughing….as I run out into the living room.
Cats of the world…….do you run when your human coughs???
Mom took a picture of me talking to Mr. Outside Cat. We were having a nice conversation about how awful winter is and Mom came along with her flashy box. She used a colored pencil effect on this and then “framed me”…MOL!!!
I was having a nice dream about food and Mom crept up on me with that flashy box. I chose to keep my eyes shut and ignore her! She used a charcoal effect on this picture and then put a food frame around me. I think I look rather cute!
So, this is what’s been going on around here lately. Mom has forced us to learn how to be alarm clocks.
She used to go to work every day and we didn’t have to worry about making sure she got up and fed us.
Then she would come home from the office place and feed us.
It was a nice routine and we basically liked it. Now that she’s not working and is busy looking for a job, everything got messed up!
I’m in charge of getting her up in the morning. First I try meowing but she doesn’t always pay attention. Then I have to try my other tricks. Knocking things down seems to help, but some days it’s a lot of work to get her up. We’re just thankful that her brother goes to work really early and he feeds us. However, we need to get outside and explore!
I’m in charge of reminding Mom when it’s time to feed us our supper and then also our treats before we go to bed. The other afternoon Mom and Hemingway were watching a movie and they both fell asleep. It was almost time for supper so I had to go in there and meow really loud to wake up both of them. When it’s time for our treats, I have to keep circling the rooms to make sure Mom hasn’t forgotten. It’s a lot of work for a little orange boy!
We sure have our work cut out for us. Can’t someone find Mom a job so we can go back to napping?
