Last night I decided that I wanted to be with Mom while she was at the computer, so I inspected her room again. I hopped upon the rocking chair and went over to Mom's lap on the computer chair, then walked on the keyboard. Some weird noises started coming out of the speakers, so I checked them out. Then I checked out the shelf where she keeps her mouse and the top of the media case where the TV sits. There wasn't room for me anywhere, so I walked back over Mom's lap to the rocking chair. You know what? That rocking chair isn't so bad. It has a comfy cushion on it and Mom could reach me to give me scritches while she read the computer screen. I stayed there until bedtime. When Mom went to bed and turned out the light, I wasn't sure what to do. I stayed in the rocking chair for a little while, then went over to the computer chair, which was still warm, and stayed there for a while. Finally I decided to join Mom in bed.
For lunch today Mom was having pasta with alfredo sauce and chicken. I told her very politely that I wanted some. Mom said, "Kitties don't eat pasta." Ha! I again told her that I wanted some and she gave me a piece. I sniffed it and licked it, then walked away. Mom put it in my food dish, then I ate it all up, but I didn't ask for any more. I think I like alfredo sauce. I really didn't want Mom to go to work today. I snagged her pants cuff with my claws to try to make her stay, but she went anyway. We had some good time together when she got home. I was really hungry and ate half a can of Stinky Goodness right away. Mom gave me a quarter can, as usual and I ate it up and asked for more, so she gave me another quarter can. I ate that up in record time and looked at her, so she gave me another one. I haven't finished that one yet.
I lost my nip ball somewhere today while Mom was at work. She'll find it for me sometime or other. I played a little with the Cat Dancer, but only batted it a couple of times. Mostly I just wanted Mom time and scritches. It seems these days that I would rather just cozy up to Mom for attention than play with her.
