No Sardines?

It seems like forever since Mom helped me blog. She's been goofing off a lot lately.

Karen Jo: Sorry, Herman. I have been having issues with being very tired on my days off. I'll try to do better.

You better improve in the sardines department, too. Can you believe that Mom actually allowed me to run out of sardines? There were no sardines at all on Friday. Sardine time came and she gave me tuna instead. I lapped up the tuna juice and left the tuna sitting there most of the day.

Karen Jo: I went to the store and bought you more sardines. I thought you liked tuna.

I do, but not as much as I like sardines. You better not run out again. I have been a really good kitty lately. I have been waking Mom up gently for breakfast and it has been working. I have even been waiting until the sun is up to wake her for the first time. Mom will give me breakfast pretty early if I have eaten at least most of my food now. She started putting more healthy stuff in my food and my fur is beginning to get some shine in it. My fur still sticks out, but I am less of an electric cat now.

Karen Jo: You are looking good, Herman. I just wish you would play a little more.

I play when I feel like it. I send you hunting for my nip ball every day. I love that. I knock my nip ball somewhere and get Mom to hunt for it. It's very funny. I would rather watch Da Bird fly over my head than try to catch it sometimes. Once in a while I catch it. Most nip toys don't interest me much. I like nip and when Mom puts loose nip on my cardboard scratcher I smell it and lick it and get it in my fur, but it doesn't make me crazy. I think nip just affects me a little bit. I do love to play with my nip ball, though. It's the only toy that Mom leaves out all the time. I smell it and bat it around and rub my head on it and lick it a little bit. Some nights Mom comes home and I have scattered all my toys around. Most nights, all the toys are right where they were when she left for work, except the balls. I love balls the most.

Karen Jo: That has been true since you first moved in. I am always looking for new kinds of balls for you. You do like your mousie wand toy pretty much, too.

That one is fun when you make the mousie move along the floor. I like to pounce on it then.

Herman, you are looking AMAZING!!

We're wondering - what kind of sardines are you getting? We think it might be good for us to get some too, but we're not sure what kind to get - do you get in oil or in spring water? You get the human kind in a can, correct?

Sardines are yummy and we can't believe your Mom forgot to get some! We think you should forgive her though. She gets you all kinds of awesome toys

Brian said...

Sounds like things are the way they should be. Herman is the big cat in charge

Cat of Nine Tales said...

Sardines!! Yes! That's a good idea, cause my kitties didn't like anchovies or shrimp. They are all for tuna though...

Max said...

Well, clearly I am a neglected kitty, because I've never gotten sardines. My people need to rectify this. Are they salty? I would like that but my people wouldn't...

Eric and Flynn said...

Our mum said she would let us try sardines when we told her before that you like them. She still hasn't given us any. She said she forgot! She is supposed to be giving us some tomorrow. She better not forget again.

Wow, what a terrible thing not to get your sardine on Friday! But we know sometimes the moms get busy, so we think it is ok this one time!

And we think balls are great toys too - we think it is hilarious that you make your mom chase the nip ball! We know some kitties just don't like some toys - we have a lot of kitties and a lot of toys - some they don't like some they do!

Pierro said...

Oh Herman, I always make my mom chase my toys too.
I never get sardines. I only get chicken and tuna in a yellow can.

I hope your mom gets peppy soon.
winter is a lazy season.

Herman, our Grampy has sardines all the time. They look like tiny tunas, don't they? I wonder why we never get any? Hmmmmm...

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Hi Herman!
You're looking good today!
We hope the sardine situation is straightened out quickly!

Everycat said...

Herman it's a wonder how you manage to look so handsome when you are clearly being deprived (of sardines) - go easy on your Mom though, being tired is no fun for humans. They don't tend to sleep for 18 hrs straight like we do!
