Bad Mom



Mom didn't get a picture of me today, because I spent my time up by the windows, with the full sunshine coming in.  Mom has learned that she can't get a good picture of me shooting into the bright sunlight, so here is a picture of me with some of my toys that she doesn't think she had posted before.

Mom, you made me miss Meow Like a Pirate Day and I was so looking forward to it.

Karen Jo:  I'm sorry, Herman.  I hadn't turned on the computer since your Tuxie Tuesday post and I forgot all about it.

You have some making up to me to do.

Karen Jo: What if I buy you a Halloween hat?

I don't think that will do.  I didn't like the St. Patrick's Day hat and I don't think I will like a Halloween hat.

Karen Jo:  You were sure interested in the birds today.

They are fun to watch, especially when they get close to the house, like they did this morning.  Sometimes I can look almost straight down at them and that really gets my tail switching.  There were a whole flock of them at the feeder and birdbath, too.  I wanna go pounce them.

Karen Jo:  Now, Herman, you know that you can't go outside.  I can't even take you out on a leash, because if you got loose and ran away and Animal Control got hold of you, there would be a lot of trouble because you are not up to date on your rabies shots.  That is because your vet said that your immune system was so compromised that it might not be able to handle any more vaccinations.  You will just have to be content with watching out the window.

Sigh, I know.  But a kitty can dream.

I totally understand, Herman - sometimes Bird TV leaves something to be desired.

We missed Pirate day too Herman. Not fair, we agree!

I don't blame you not wanting to wear hats Herman. You are looking very handsome with your nip carrot!

Herman, you mom is norty for forgetting Pirate day. But you can do it next year and there will be tons of other days coming up. Hope all of you have a fantastic week.

Simba said...

That is still a cute picture of you, Herman, even if it isn't brand new. Inside is the safest place for you in many ways, and honestly, if you got lose to those birdies they would just fly away. Have a great week!

The Monkeys said...

We're also not allowed outside, Herman, so we feel your pain! Bird TV is fabulous though and it's nice to dream!

The Paw Relations said...

We're sorry that you missed Meow Like A Pirate Day and that you cannot go outside to pounce on the birdies.

But we hope you enjoy sunning yourself!

Kea said...

Don't worry, we didn't do Pirate Day, either, Herman!

Tell your mom you need a fully enclosed mini-catio, so you can enjoy some fresh air safely. Heh!

Brian said...

That is a great picture of you Herman! Hey, the sun and birdies is a great combination!!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Yeah--it's way nicer inside! Enjoy the bird television!

Angel and Kirby said...

Bird TV is the best.

Sammy and Andy said...

We have to watch Bird TV too, but would love to get outside and try to catch one of those birdies for real!!!!!!

Herman, you can teleport over to the Catio any time you want! Check out what Felix caught last week in our post today...it's always something new to snag and eat.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

We're not fond of hats either! We totally understand. And we think the ONLY way your mom can make up missing Meow Like A Pirate Day is buying LOTS of steak and sour cream for you!

AttieCattie said...

aw, Herman, teehee. mind you stays indoors then, even if the birdies do look delishus.

SuziQCat said...

Bird watching is just as fun as bird catching Herman!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Even bird TV can get old, just like food choices, hahameow!

Pierro said...

It's much safer to stay indoors!

We think you should forgive your Mom because she takes super good care of you.

Herman
Maybe your Mom can get you a toy birdie and you can play with it inside. Watching birdie TV is fun, we have to do it all the time because we can't go outside, Mom won't let us. Especially after Ping ran away from home for 3 days and got sick. That was it for going outside during the day.
