Mom is still trying to get me interested in my new toy. It's called Ball of Furry Fury if any of you are interested in getting one. It does squeak, a little, when Mom drops it on the floor. All it's done for me so far is remind me how much I like my squeaky mouse. Instead of playing with the new toy, I went and got my squeaky mouse and gave it a good workout. Mom has been reading the book she got from The Cat Realm.
Karen Jo: It's the book I got in the raffle for Coco's vet bills. It is called Astrology for Cats and it is quite interesting. I was amused at what it said about you, Herman. You are a Gemini. It says you are inquisitive, sociable and unpredictable, which is all true. It also says that you like people, which is sort of true. You usually want to check out anyone who comes over. It also says that you are a picky eater, which is spot on, especially the bit about your liking variety and what you eat today you may turn your nose up at tomorrow. The only thing that doesn't really ring true is the bit about your purring. It says you should purr a lot and loudly. You do purr a lot, but very softly.
A lady I have seen before came over and this time I introduced myself by sniffing her shoes. She didn't try to pet me, though.
Karen Jo: That was your cat sitter, Herman. She is a good friend of mine and is doing this as a favor to me, though she isn't really a cat person. She has a woofy.
Maybe that is why her shoes smelled so interesting. Will she play with me?
Karen Jo: Probably not, but I have another friend who says she can come over a little bit to keep you company.
I'm going to get lonely.
Karen Jo: I know, Herman. I will leave the TV in my room on for you and you can sit on my bed and watch it, like you do sometimes with me. I will leave out all your favorite toys and you know that you can fish more toys out of the toy basket any time you want.
Watching TV doesn't sound so interesting if you won't be there for me to cuddle up next to. Will I get my treats?
Karen Jo: I will be sure to tell her where your treats are and to make sure that you get some every day.
