Mancat Monday

Mom was shooting into the light again, so this picture isn't great, but I wouldn't hold still for her any other way. I am using one of her big, clompy boots for a pillow. I am not scared of them at all any more. As you can see, my fur is still sticking out in every direction, but if you look at the top of my head, you can see a little shine in my head fur.

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.

Yummy! Pasta!

We can definitely see your furs are looking better, Herman!

Sammy and Andy said...

YAY for Alfredo sauce!!!!!!!! Herman, this is Andy....my floofs are sticking out all over also....I blame it on the dry cold that has settled over our house....when the Gulf moisture comes in, my floofs lay down much nicer.

Take care and have a wonderful day.....xxxxxxxx

Angel likes to sit in the chair next to Mom's when she is at the computer. Both she and Kirby like to lay on the table behind the computer and sewing machine

Alfredo sauce can be very tasty. I don't like it when my person leaves for the day either--EVER.

Brian said...

You're training your human well my friend!

Simba said...

Sounds like you have made a yummy discovery in the Alfredo Sauce. I like to lick the gravy off my wet food, so maybe I would like Alfredo Sauce too.

caspersmom said...

Don't know about eating pasta and alfredo sauce, but I sure would like the chicken. Mom doesn't like me in the computer chair, she is afraid my claws will tear it so most of the time I sit in my own chair right beside the computer chair. Mom gives me scritches there. Yeah, Mom has to find our toys too.
