Mo' Cats Day

Here I am looking out the window.  Mom was chasing me around with the camera, trying to get a good picture of me and experimenting with different settings on the camera.  The Friends of the Shelter are putting out a calendar with pictures of cats who were adopted from the shelter or from foster care and my foster mom told Mom to make sure that she sent in an entry for me.  Mom didn't blog for me last night because she got really upset about something.  I don't know what.

Karen Jo:  The computer repairman had my computer for a month and it was supposed to be all fixed.  I found out last night that neither the DVD drive nor the CD-ROM drive are working.  I really don't want to take it in again, but I need those drives, or at least one of them, working.  Grrrr!

Let's get back to me.  I didn't tell you about the great poop medicine experiment.  Mom put me on three doses a day to firm up my poop all the way and it worked.  Then she cut me back to two doses, then one and everything was fine, so she took me off it completely.  Everything was great for about a week, then the pudding poop showed up again.  Now I am back on two doses per day, which keeps me making good poop.

Karen Jo:  It was worth a try.  I decided that three doses was probably too much as I started finding really hard, dry lumps.  Now you make normal poop, with just a tiny bit of pudding poop at the end.  I don't think I will try any more experiments with your medicine.  You are feeling so good now that  I don't want to mess with it.

I feel great and very frisky, but you don't play with me.

Karen Jo:  Don't give me that.  You ask me to play.  When I get down on the floor to play with you, you walk away from me and ignore all the toys I throw to you. Then when I get up, you paw at my leg to get me to stay.  When I stay, you ignore me.  You are just messing with my mind.

Herman:  Isn't this great?  I am having so much fun.

It is such fun to mess with the humans' minds like you do. Let Mom get a good picture for the calendar - it would be so great for you to be in it.

Karen Jo, sorry about the computer stuff :-(

Your human is so funny, Herman. Clearly, you just want her to be on the floor with you, and she thinks you want to chase toys. Humans! Can't they ever figure things out?

Kea said...

Hahahaha! It's one of our main purposes in life, to mess with our humans' minds. Doesn't take much, either. ;-D

Good luck with the computer!

Great pics Herman - love the one of you looking out the window! Sorry about your puter - ours went out and Mom didn't have it for a week and took another week to put all the programs back in!

You have learned control very well, Herman!

Karen Jo,
Does your computer recognize that the drives are there? If so, do a google search...You may just have to reinstall the drive software. I've had to do it once or twice. It's not difficult but can be a little time consuming.
Don't mess too much with Mom's mind. She is trying and you need to have more patience with her.

Herman, we need to be kind, but firm here.

When you ask Mom to play, and she can, you are sposed to play. There are times to play head games and be contrary (like walking away from perfectly good good), and there are times when ya shouldn't (like play time).

So we hope ya will play when Mom has the opportunity. Fer one thing, it's fun. Fer another, the exercize is good for ya. Fer a third thing, it shows ya are healthy an happy.

Herman we are so glad you are feeling so much better and that you feel good enough to mess with your mom - sounds like you are doing it just perfectly!!

Oh Herman, we are so glad to see you back and to see you are doing so well. Feeling great, frisky and playing mind games with Mom. So glad the computer is not as sick as it was. Sounds like it needs a little medicine too. Maybe some vitamins so it can work better. Sure hope you get a picture in the Friends of the Shelter calendar.
