Playing Around

Haha! My Mom thought she was going to get a little video of me playing with my big mousie, but she forgot how close it was to time for my afternoon nap. I was getting sleepy and didn't play very long. You can also see my nip ham. Mom has never seen me play with it, but it keeps moving around. I really like all my toys now. Hey, Mom, you didn't bring me any new toys last night or tonight.

Karen Jo: Oh, yes I did, Herman. Remember those four balls you batted around last night? You were too busy grooming yourself to notice when I dropped them on the floor last night.

Three balls, Mom. I only played with three balls. One was purple with pink spots. What kind of toy is that for a mancat?

Karen Jo: They came in a package all together, Herman. To get the white, red and blue balls I had to get the purple one, too. Besides I noticed that you played with the purple one while I was at work.

Well, it's boring here without you. I had to do something besides sleep. You didn't bring me anything tonight.

Karen Jo: Remember that red spot that you chased all around tonight after you had your dinner? I brought that home.

You mean you are responsible for the invasion of the red bug? Grrrr! I can see it, but I can't smell it or catch it or even bite it. I finally gave up trying.

Karen Jo: But you sure had fun trying. I haven't seen you play that long with anything before.

I had fun with foods today, too. Before Mom even changed her furs this morning she went to the room with the slick floor and got a BIG piece of meat out of the cold box. It smelled so yummy that I jumped up and tried to lick it, but Mom caught me and put me back on the floor. Then she put it into a silver thing and put it all in another box that got hot. Pretty soon the whole room smelled really good. After a long time, she took the silver thing out of the hot box and put the meat on a wooden thing. It smelled so good that I jumped up and tried to lick it again, but Mom caught me again and put me back on the floor. Then she cut a piece off of it and put it on one of her food dishes and I tried once more to lick it, but she is too fast for me. Then she cut up a piece and put it on one of my food dishes and put it on the floor for me. I ate one piece and walked away. Then I meowed and meowed and meowed for my chick-hen. She got out my chick-hen and put that on my food dish, too. I ate some chick-hen, but that other stuff was yucky.

Karen Jo: Right, Herman. That was roast beef I gave you first. If you thought it was so yucky, why was it mostly gone when I got back from work?

I got hungry and I have to eat something.

Karen Jo: Like you didn't have Stinky Goodness and crunchies out the whole time.

I ate most of my Stinky Goodness, too.

Karen Jo: I think you just found a way to get roast beef and chicken, too.

We liked your video! It's a good idea to nap when they pull out the flashy box. Sometimes it makes them take it away.

Oh what a tired mancat in the video! Herman you are doing great training Karen Jo to give you roast beef, chicken and stinky goodness, well done! All those toys too, your Mum is really attentive to your needs, unlike ours who hasn't bought us a new toy in about 9000 years (Mum: er, about a week actually).

We find if Mum lets us catch the red bug we magically get a little piece of kibble immediately we catch it, this keeps us interested and we keep playing!

We do so enjoy reading about you, Herman. Roast beef, yum. If you don't want it, ship it to me, please


The Meezers said...

Herman - you is awesome! oh and MUST. KILL. RED. DOT. ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Gracie said...

Great video! Guess you showed your mom that you play when you play and nap when you nap. Hey, I got one of those red bug thingies at my place too. Yes, it is impossible to catch but hard to get it to go away once it gets out.
So glad that you liked your limerick, I was afraid when I didn't hear from you that you were too busy laughing at it.
Keep up the great job you two. You both are doing a fine job of being a family.

Yo, Herman! It sounds like you got a TERRIFIC furrever home! Roast Beast AND Chick-hen AND a climbing tower! Woo-hoo!

Max said...

Fair warning, doood...the day will come when the Person comes home and DOESN'T BRING YOU ANYTHING. Can you imagine it??? It's so depressing... Like they expect us to play with OLD toys. Good job on getting the beef. I love beef. I can't save any for later, though, because Buddah Pest will take it :/

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

MOL! Ya should see it here. We drag toys around at night when The Big Thing is asleep. Lots times, toys we haven't played with fer months. Sometimes our favrits.

He woke up few days ago ta find a dozen old toys dragged out and put on the bed! He dint even wake up while we were doing it... He thought they were lost forever. But WE knew were they were. Heh-heh!

They are gifts, of course...
