Be it known by all my readers. This is NOT my happy face! The day started out just fine. Hemingway and I had breakfast and then we had time to romp around while Mom got ready for work. Then Mom left for work and she didn’t realize that she had shut me in the bathroom! All day in the bathroom with NO toys, NO food and NO litter box. I was a wreck. When I finally heard Mom come home I started yelling like crazy. She heard me and came and opened the door and she and Hemingway were laughing! I told her in no uncertain terms that I didn’t enjoy my day at all.
Know what happened next? She got out my carrier and put me in it. Oh no!!! I didn’t realize that I had to go see the doctor lady again. Nobody told me. I “sang” all the way to the doctor lady’s place. I even made up some words ‘cuz I was so mad. Mom told me I was going to be a horse when I got there. That’s silly. I’m never going to be a horse.
The good news is that I checked out just fine. They all said I was healthy and really adorable. I now weigh 3.4 pounds so I’m gaining like crazy. They gave me some shots and cleaned my ears again. The doctor lady said I was unbelievably good when they cleaned my ears. Mom was so proud of me. Well, I’m going to take a nap now. zzzzzzzzzzzz
Long ago I was adopted by my Mom. I’m going to be seven on Christmas Eve. That’s a paw and two claws! I’m wise……at least I think so. Well, with the addition of this little “spitfire”, I’ve realized some very important things.
I used to be a morning kitty and an evening kitty. I still get up really early ‘cuz Mom’s brother gets up early and he feeds us. However, I’m too tired to party late at night now. (Kind of like Mom! MOL!!!)
Toys are fun only at certain times. Steinbeck thinks toys are to be played with twenty-four hours a day!
I have certain toys I really like. Steinbeck thinks EVERYTHING is a toy……including Mom’s toes!
I like to sit in the window and watch what’s happening outside. Steinbeck has learned that trick and now he always wants to join me.
I don’t like medicine in my food but since Steinbeck came, Mom has to give me some medicine to make sure I’m safe.
I like to wait for Mom when she comes home from work. Now Steinbeck tries to join in and get all the attention.
In conclusion, it’s hard being an older brother, but I’m kind of getting used to this little one. Sometimes I have to swat him ‘cuz he’s obnoxious, but I try not to swat too hard. I’m hoping that he’ll eventually settle down. At least he doesn’t try to curl up with me when we’re both on Mom’s bed. I want to cuddle with Mom…….not him!
Mom told me we were going for a ride. The last time I rode with her, she was bringing me to my furever home. I rode in a cardboard box, and I “sang” the whole way home. This time I got to ride in a soft carrier. However, I still “sang”.
Mom fixed up a little slide show of me at the Doctor Lady’s house. Everyone said I was adorable and that I did real good. I weigh a whopping 2 pounds 3 ounces!! What’s a whopping????
I sure got held by lots of people! I think they did that to keep me from “singing”. Mom said I did lots and lots of that!
Mom……….you won’t believe what they did to me back there! They cleaned out my ears!!! Please don’t make me go back there again.
This is the nice lady at the front desk. She knows Hemingway and she knew Shakespeare and even some other cats Mom used to have. She told me I was adorable. I guess I am!
Mom….do I get a treat for being good? Will you help me dry off my fur where it got wet? I want to go home now and see Hemingway.
The two pictures above are like deja vu. The horizontal one is Steinbeck when he first discovered the refrigerator. The vertical one is Shakespeare when he discovered the refrigerator. I think this helps prove to me that Steinbeck was meant to be in our home……..in spite of what Hemingway may think right now.
