I have now claimed all the furniture in the big room as MINE. Here I am napping on the couch. See how my fur sticks out? Mom has really looked at my fur and her theory is that I always look like I am having a bad fur day because my fur has just a tiny bit of curl in it. It is especially noticeable in my chest and tummy fur. She was brushing me the other day and noticed that my back fur got wavy after brushing. The little bit of curl means that my fur doesn't like to lie flat and smooth.
My Mom is feeling better and doesn't get very hurty much any more.
Karen Jo: I still have a low grade ache most of the time, but the big pain spikes when I move in certain ways has almost disappeared. Yay for physical therapy and exercises! I even got down on my hands and knees to retrieve Herman's ball and played with him for a little bit while I was down there. Getting up again wasn't nearly as painful as I had feared, so maybe our regular play times may be back soon.
I am getting more playful again. I wasn't playing much when Mom was so hurty. I think I picked up on her feeling bad and it made me feel a bit bad, too. Now things are better and I am having more fun. I am scarfing up the food, but I still love keeping my Mom guessing. She gave me some turkey and skin in my bowl and I didn't eat it. I kept staring at her and meowing while she was eating her turkey, though, so she gave me some turkey skin and a tiny bit of gravy on a people plate and I ate it right up.
Karen Jo: I sometimes give Herman treats on saucers, which I never use for food. I always use the Sanitize cycle on the dishwasher anyway.
I love it when my Mom decides to spend the evening sitting up on her bed and watching TV. I snuggle right up to her side and get lots of petting.
Karen Jo: We have been having very cold weather and I have been pretty achy, which is why I haven't been blogging since Christmas. Hopefully, the ache will continue to diminish and I can get back to a more normal blogging schedule.
