Here I am enjoying a nice sunspot while Mom rested on the couch Friday.  She played with me a little bit, but mostly she just rested.  That's why we didn't blog yesterday.  That cold is making her very tired and she wanted to rest as much as possible before going back to work on Saturday.  Mom says that she is sure that it is a cold and not an allergy to me because it is making her so tired.  She also doesn't have the other allergy symptoms that she usually gets.  She brought me home some of the furry mice that Gracie recommended and I like them.  I have toys scattered all over the living room floor now.  Friday a lady that I never saw before came to the door and gave my Mom a bag.  I smelled something wonderful and started meowing and meowing.  It was TURKEY!  I wouldn't leave Mom alone for a second until she gave me some.  I gobbled it down and asked for some more and she gave me some more.  We had it again for lunch on Saturday.  I want it every day.

Karen Jo:  I will give you some every day until we eat it all, Herman.

Will you get some more after that?

Karen Jo:  If I can find some turkey legs or hindquarters, we will have it fairly often, Herman.  I like turkey, too.

I also showed Mom that I can drink out of the faucet. She was washing my Stinky Goodness dish and I jumped right up on the sink and started lapping the water.  She was surprised, but let me drink until I had enough.  Now I jump up every time she turns on the water and she lets me drink my fill. We had some nice play time Saturday night after she got back from work.

Karen Jo:  I am not so drippy and sneezy as I was, but fighting off the cold is really sapping my energy.  I will try to blog a bit, if I am feeling up to it, but I need to go to bed much earlier than I usually do, to try to regain my strength, so I will be doing very little visiting and maybe not much blogging until I get well again.

Herman, I think YOU'RE the one that looks all tuckered out! Snoozing amidst all those enticing toys!!!

Tell mom that more turkey certainly can't hurt her cold. It's sure to make it better. : )

get well soon Karen Jo!

We love this picture Herman! It shows how comfy your life is now and this makes us happy. Never a paws reach far from a toy, never more than a couple of steps from the cosy igloo bed, and just an amble away from some newspaper to attack and scrabble about with. You are making good use of the sunshine too, which is a great skill.

Get well soon Karen-Jo, colds can be rotters! Dr Herman is good medicine.

Turkey is yummy! Mom only makes it one day a year, but we enjoy it for days afterwards.

Herman, you are one lucky dude. Enjoy your turkey while you have it. And give your mom lots of headbumps and purrs so she will get better faster. It helps them when you curl up on there lap and fall asleep there.

Faucet water is extra-delicious! I hope your mom feels better soon, Herman!

We hope that your Mom gets better quickly. Colds can be no fun at all.

Enjoy your turkey and faucet water!!!

Max said...

Mr. Herman, it sounds like you would love a water fountain. I think it's way better than drinking out of the faucet (well, other than the whole making the person turn the faucet on and off would be great fun...)

Cory said...

Maybe you can help your mom make turkey soup with your leftovers! That would help her cold and it would be delish for you too.

We hope your mum is soon better. We like drinking from the tap too. We don't like bowls, we like our water running.

WE hopes your moms gets better, I did the same thing to my moms I chased her arounds for that yum yum nom nom turkey

Tiger Lily said...

Please get well soon Karen Jo! We do not like it when you are sick.

Cory is right about the soup Herman. It might make your Mom feel better and you both would enjoy eating it. We made turkey stew and it is delicious!

Oh neato! My lady and man also have discovered I like to drink from the sink, too. We have a lot in common.

The lady learned from some people that cats don't seem to drink much in general. Because of this, cats can get hairballs and also urinary tract infections, so the people told her. Someone suggested getting a cat water fountain because cats like a constant stream of water. Someone also suggested giving me a bit of canned moist food. That will help with hairballs. So far I haven't had any hairballs (knock on wood). Have you?
