Doing Better

Here I am on the kitchen floor. Mom was following me around the other day, taking a bunch of pictures. Mom needs to wash the kitchen floor something awful.

Karen Jo: Yes, I do. I am afraid that housecleaning has been the last thing on my mind lately. I was following you around taking pictures because you had gotten out of your bed at last and were taking more interest in things around you. I think you are feeling better.

I am. I think it's a good thing that you are making sure that I take all my medicines, no matter what I think about it. Mom forgot to close the window today before she went to work, so I got fresh air all the time she was gone. I really liked that.

Karen Jo: It's a good thing that it didn't get too cold tonight. We were both in a really good mood today. You even played with my pajama string for a few seconds tonight. You ate up all your pro-biotic while I was gone, too. You even made a good start on your fiber tonight. I expect to find it all gone by morning.

Maybe, maybe not. I do know that I will get it one way or the other, though. You brought home something that smelled really good.

Karen Jo: I bought a package of chicken livers. I am going to boil you up a couple with celery like Victor Tabbycat suggested to see if you will eat them. I get the rest of them. I don't understand why you get all excited when I get the chicken out of the refrigerator and meow all the time that I am warming it up, then don't want it when it is ready.

I just like to keep you guessing. At least you know that there is nothing wrong with my sense of smell. I came trotting in from the living room as soon as you got the chicken out and there is no way that I could have seen you getting it out. Are you going to stay home with me all day tomorrow? I want more attention than you have been giving me lately.

Karen Jo: I have some errands to run, but I will be home with you most of the day. I haven't been giving you as much attention lately because you have been walking away from me when I try to pet you or you have been sound asleep in your bed and I didn't want to disturb you. I am glad to see you more active now.

I am enjoying the warmer weather and open window. Seeing you feel happy makes me happier, too.

Karen Jo: I will try to remember that and not let things get me down any more. I saw one of the ladies from the vet office today and she told me that you are probably getting mats so quickly now because you are shedding part of your undercoat. I am thinking about Furminating you tomorrow.

I hope it feels as good as brushing.

Oh Herman, You will enjoy the furminating. It feels so good and I run around like crazy after Mommy is done! Daddy clips Tiny Johnson's pantaloons about once a month and it helps him out a lot with keeping his bottom clean. Mommy holds him and it only takes a minute.

Herman, I left ya an awardie! Come visit when ya get a chance...


Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

LOL! Don't worry about the floor; you should see ours. And the "back bafroom" is horrid. The camera sees what The Big Thing does not!

Mainly, we is glad ya been a little more active, Herman. Thats a good sign.

BTW, just ta mention; we kinna like it when TBT scritches us awake gently when we are nappin. We at at our calmest then.

Seriously, whether we are nappin on the bed, on the kitty condo, or on his lap, we think it is great ta be waked gently wif love an attention.

The Devil Dog said...

Do get better, Herman, we like it when you and your mom are happy. As for the furminator, I hope you like it, I know I don't!


Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Glad you are doing better.

Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

Oooo, furminating feels really good! Zippy even likes to get it and mom don't even bother brushing her cuz she don't like it and really don't need it. Glad yoor feeling better. Mom wakes us from naps sometimes just to rub our ears and cheeks, we like it, it means she loves us and den we go right back to sleep.

Glad to hear you are feeling better...runny poops are not fun. My boys will tolerate the furminator some...I think it pulls their fur a little bit though.
