Do I look tired? Do I look annoyed? Do I look messy? The answer is yes to all three and none of those things can be blamed on me. First of all, I’m tired ‘cuz I’ve had to take care of Mom lately and also watch out for my little brother and make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. I’m annoyed ‘cuz I don’t want all that responsibility. I’m messy ‘cuz that blob of light yellow by my cheek is actually part of a dried leaf. Steinbeck loves to “prune” the plants and then he scatters dead leaves on the floor. If I happen to roll in them, they stick to my gorgeous furs!!!
Hey Hemingway………….whatcha’ doin’ now???? Is Mom better yet? She told me that she caught a bug and it made her sick. I catch bugs and I just play with them but they don’t make me sick. Mom’s kind of crazy. Why was she playing with the bug? What did the bug do to her? How come she didn’t let me play with the bug? Hemingway……….is it time to eat yet???
See what I mean? No peace and quiet for me!!! Actually, Mom did catch a bug and she was pretty sick for a few days. She had to go to the “human vet” and get some medicine and now she’s feeling fine. She told me that since she’s o*l*d, it takes her longer to snap back. She was pretty tired for many days but we both tried our best to take care of her.
Hemingway……….have you seen my favorite toy?
Can I come stay with one of you for a couple of days? I really need a vacation!!! Sigh…..
