Tuesday, Toesday

Mom just loves my toehawks, so I let her snap this picture. We found a new game to play today. She rolls a ball to me and I bat it back to her. We can do this for a while, then I get excited and start batting it all over the room. Then that dratted ball goes somewhere I can't get to it anymore, but Mom gets it for me and we play the game some more, until I get tired of it and just lie down to rest.

Mom has been lifting me up to my platform when she hears the birdies, but today I showed her that I can get up there all by myself. This made her very happy for some reason.

Karen Jo: It made me happy because I now know that you realize that the platform is yours and you can do whatever you want with it. I do wish you would scratch on it instead of on the carpet and couch, though.

Aw, I don't do that much scratching, anyway.

Karen Jo: That's true.

I do like the nip you put all over it. Maybe I will scratch on it some. Those were pretty lame toys you brought me home tonight.

Karen Jo: They were the only type in the store that I hadn't bought you yet. They are round and fuzzy. You didn't have any fuzzy toys before.

I don't know if I like them. I totally ignored them when you gave them to me.

Karen Jo: We'll see if you play with them tonight. At least you had lots more fun with the red bug.

Mom was mean to me last night. We were getting ready for bed and she was giving me my scritches and she suddenly flipped the covers over on me.

Karen Jo: You left out the part where you scratched my hand again. I am sorry that flipping the corner of the covers over you startled you so much. I thought it would be fun for you.

It scared the heck out of me. I ran away and didn't come back until you were asleep. At least you don't do weird stuff to me while you are sleeping.

Karen Jo: I won't ever do that to you again, Herman. I do like it when you sleep with me.

Gracie wrote this very nice poem for Herman and me:

Herman & Karen Jo

My name is Herman and I always wanted a good home
Unfortunately, I was neglected and left all alone to roam.

Through adoption Karen came to meet me
She had a can of tuna she gave to me while on the floor on her knees.

Now all my dreams have come true
I have a forever home, love, mom, and a blog that I can come and visit you.

Thank you very much, Gracie. We really appreciate it.

Hey Herman, we love that you get to play with your Mom lots. Good work on getting some roast beast. It's good to snuggle with your Mom, and we're glad that you sleep with her.

You're coming along so well in your new home, Herman! You're a very lucky boy to have such a wonderful new Mom!

We love your toe-hawks!

Wow Herman, you got a mom all to yourself now! Forgive her when she does silly things because she's just trying to make you happy.

Hey Hermie buddy!! It took me a couple of weeks to start to use my cat tree. Mom put me up on it many times before I got the idea that it was fun! Now its my favorite place to be. Congrats on your forever home buddy!! It sounds like a good one!

Herman, we are happy that you are settling in and learning to play and climb on your tower. Sudden movements and covers still scare Angel, too.

Very secy toehawks there Herman!

It's brilliant that you get new toys every night! Our apes clearly need to use your Mum as an example of superb cat care. It's lovely to see you so happy

What a wonderful poem Gracie wrote for you!!! I think you have an admirer!

Cute little toesies for sure. Boty, I thought I was spoiled but I didn't get new toys every day when I picked the mom and the dad. Hummmmmm. I guess you are training Karen Jo better than I trained my folks.
Hey I have a toy for sure that you will like. You can buy them at Wallmart. They come in a package of five. They are tear dropped little white mice with pretty colors on their heads. Only problem is I keep loosing mine and cannot find them all. I should have 25 but we can only find about 10 right now. I'm not telling where the stash is. Have your mom get you some of those.

Oh Herman, Gracie wrote you and Mom and good one!!!

Hi Herman! I have read all of your adventures and admired all of your pictures so far. You are just absolutely adorable! You are the perfect floofiness. :) Mommy Karen Jo is one happy Mommy I can tell. This is just so awesome and I feel so happy inside to think of you two all safe and snug at home. You and Mommy Karen will have the best Holidays ever this year!
I look forward to learning all about you and hearing about your new life in your wonderful forever home.
Big Hugs and Scritches,
