Here I am in profile. Mom us using up some of the pictures she has already taken of me. It's gotten hot here and most of the time I am stretched out resting. I am still good for a short game of soccer in the morning, though. Ooooh, I think I had too much fun at my birthday party. I barfed the morning after.

Karen Jo: That wasn't a too-much-party barf, Herman. That was a hairball.

What's that?

Karen Jo: You haven't ever had one before because you never used to groom yourself much. Now that you are grooming yourself, you get loose fur in your tummy and it comes back up.

Gross! At least I was a good kitty about it and did it on the plastic mat in the kitchen. I did put me off my Medley for a while.

Karen Jo: Not for long. When I got home on Friday, you had eaten up all your Stinky Goodness and your Medley and the bottom of you pea and duck bowl was clearly visible. You are one hungry kitty!

I need to gain back the weight I lost. Besides, it's too hot to do much but eat and sleep. Saturday I made some good poops, too.

Karen Jo: You sure did. One all solid poop and one half solid poop. That's the most solid poop in one day so far.

Thank all of you for coming to my birthday party. It was a blast! Now Mom is going to get to work on my latest batch of awards, so she can post about them.

Yay Herman! It sounds like you are getting a chance to return to normal kitty life! Sending you lots of purrs and headbutts to help you keep improving!

Kea said...

Woohoo, Herman! Hairballs and solid poop--that's fantastic! And only other humans who love their fur companions can understand why those things are exciting to your mom! :-)

Lots of purrs for continued improvement!

Sorry we missed your it was a good one! but mommy's birthday was Friday and she was spending time with her sister and others, so no partying for us.
Happy Karen Jo is excited about the poop and hairball...humans can be so STRANGE sometimes!
Anyway, belated birthday wishes and continued good poops,

I had a great time at your Birthday Party Herman, but watch those hairballs...they are not much fun to bat around!

Good Job Lad! You are doing brillantly. You know if you were furless you would never have a hairball. Just a thought!

Hairballs are not fun. Do you has cat-grass? That can help make more barfs =^_^=

Way to go Herman!!! You keep up the good work buddy, keep noming and playing - we need you!

I missed it... all because of my silly orange Miles the kitten brother. He is so much work to keep track of, he is everywhere at once.
I am not three years old yet Herman. I will be in September. I am so glad to have such a cool mancat friend to look up to. Happy snappy bonkful Birthday to you Herman.
I am so glad that you had a wild party, sorry you had a hangover but that is the price you pay for a blowout on your 3rd!

WE don't get hair balls but think our new brother Mac may!

Everycat said...

Y'know Herman, in hot weather, eating and sleeping are a wise career move.


Pip said...

We are cheering for you!

Oh Herman, I came over from TK and Squashie's blog to check you out. I'm glad you are feeling better and having some good poops. Those pudding ones wreak havoc on you long haired beauties.
You look a lot like an old friend of mine. You are Bee yoo ti ful.
I think you live on love and that's how it should be.
