So, I’m sitting out here trying to figure out what Mom’s problem is! By the way, don’t I look angelic and adorable? Anyway, Mom told me she’s tired of my jungle jeans. Mom! I don’t wear jeans!! Have you ever seen me in any kind of jeans?? And what are jungle jeans? I have never seen them.
All of this is because the other night Mom was in the house and Hemingway and I were out in the back yard patrolling, watching and looking for our doggie friend neighbors. Suddenly I saw something that I knew I had to chase. I ran and ran and then went into the house to show Mom my trophy. Mom was not impressed.
What did I have? I had a bunny in my mouth. It wasn’t a baby bunny. Mom figures it was like a preteen bunny, whatever that means. I was so proud of my catch but Mom took it away from me and I never saw the bunny again.
Readers, I had heard on the news around here that our area is being overrun with bunnies. I was just trying to help. I didn’t know Mom would be sad. I thought she would be proud of me. She sat me down and had a long talk about not killing bunnies and birds and squirrels and things. Then she hugged me and mumbled something about jungle jeans.
If I ever find those jungle jeans that Mom says I have, I’m going to throw them out!!!
It seems we’ve been gone for a long time again. Blame it on Mom, even though she’s trying to blame it on me!
Remember a little bit ago when I got sick? Well, Mom got sick about the same time. She said she caught her epplezoodix from ME! In the first place, I don’t know what epplezoodix are …. or is. In the second place, I do not throw things! I knock them off of things and then move them around but I don’t throw. So Mom had me all confused.
I sat down with her so she could explain. She said epplezoodix was a word her Dad made up to describe when a human wasn’t feeling good. Now I understand! NOT! I still didn’t throw anything. Anyway, Mom was not feeling good for about a week. She said it felt like she was swallowing razor blades. Now in my opinion, that’s a pretty stupid thing to do. She’s finally better and seems to have more energy again so maybe she’ll have the strength to turn on the puter for us more often.
Now, the reason I’m in a rather snarly mood is that Mom took me to the doctor’s house again!!!! I was just there. Why did I have to go back? She made up some excuse about me needing my checkup and shots. SHOTS????? I didn’t sign up for that!
Here’s what happened on my trip to the doctor’s house tonight.
I got home and had something to eat and now I’m napping. What I didn’t tell Shakespeare is that he’s going to have to go through this, too! I can’t wait!! Oh, and the doctor person said I was very healthy and had recovered from my epplezoodix. I still don’t know what they are!!!!
We are enjoying the peace and quiet of our backyard right now.
Mom said we have to be inside tonight when all the booming starts.
Starts??? It’s already been happening.
We don’t like it but it doesn’t seem to scare us.
Mom makes sure all the windows are locked and that big machine that blows cool air is on so we’re happy.
See what a good job I do at hiding? Nobody can see me!
Actually, I think I do a better job of hiding. I blend in with the cover!
Mom….is this the thing you use to make catnip burgers? Why aren’t you making any?
Did someone say catnip?
I love walking on the new deck! I think it shows off my humongous tail so perfectly.
Both of us and Mom want to wish all of you a very happy and safe Fourth of July! Please remember that we fur people don’t understand all the loud noises you humans make on this holiday. Many of us don’t like them and we are very scared of them. Think of us and do something to help us get through this terrifying night. Thanks so much!
