Bad Mom



Mom hasn't been taking pictures of me lately, so here's an older one of me playing with my nip syringe.  Mom was really bad yesterday.  She left me all alone at oh-dark-thirty and didn't come back until it was dark again.

Karen Jo:  I'm sorry, Herman.  I promised a friend of mine that I would help her do something and it took much longer than we expected.  I did leave you plenty of food.

Bah!  All I got was early breakfast, which I ate up in a flash, and second breakfast and dinner.

Karen Jo:  I left you half a can of Medley and half a can of Stinky Goodness after you ate up the quarter cans I gave you for early breakfast.  You ate it all up and really put a dent in your dry food.  When I got home I gave you a quarter can of each for dinner.  You were ready for more by dawn. That's two 3 oz. cans of food you are going through per day, plus your dry.  No wonder you are putting on weight, which is all to the good.

I'm a hungry kitty.  You have been eating some good stuff lately, too.  I got some more steak and chicken in the last few days.  I still want to try some of your cheeseburger.

Karen Jo:  I am having one for lunch tomorrow.  I'll let you try a little.  You didn't used to like hamburger meat at all.

I changed my mind.  Where's my nip ball?

Karen Jo:  I don't know.  I couldn't find it this morning.  I'll look again tomorrow morning.  You found another good hiding spot for it.

Hahaha!  I really liked it that you went to bed early last night.  We got in some really good cuddle time.  You got sneaky with my medicine today.

Karen Jo:  Yep.  I popped your little half pill in your mouth before you knew what was up.  You wouldn't let me do it again tonight, though.  It would be easier if you would just let me pop it in and be done with it.

Herman:  I don't like my medicine and I'm going to make you work at it to get it in me.

Herman, the trick is to sleep allllll day long, then wake up when Karen Jo comes home (to eat more) then sleep some more - then when she goes to bed, you suddenly just have to expend all that energy for playing that you saved during the day.

PS: Good luck with the cheeseburger, we have never tried cheeseburger :(

Herman, it's wonderful to read you are so hungry, gaining weight, and doing well! Try not to challenge your mom *too* much re. the meds, though, because you need those!!!

Lots of kitty kisses and smooches!

I think Mom is going to have to leave the phone number for room service so you can call them when she is out!

Herman, we have had cheezburger and they are great! You are in for a treat. Keep up the eating...we wish we had to gain a little...

Keep on taking your pill...Our Mommy has gotten pretty good at pilling us, she pushes the pill down our throats with her thumb so quick we don't have time to bite--much.

Herman,
Our mommy routinely goes to work when other mommies are going to bed, so we know about oh dark thirty too.
Mommy has been giving Runt an antibiotic for a little while now and some mornings he makes her really work for it but most the time, it only takes twice to get it down his throat and then she loves on him, so he doesn't fight too hard.

We are glad you are feeling good and putting on weight.
Snuggles and purrs,
Taz, Runt, Charles and mommy, Anna in IL
