Catchup Caturday


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.

Herman, you should have your human get a cat sitter DVD or two to play on the TV while she is gone! It's better than regular human TV by a longshot.

Kea said...

Oh, the Cat Sitter DVD is a good idea!

We hope the time will pass quickly for you, Herman. And that your mom has a wonderful visit--we think it's with her aunt, if we remember correctly.

Herman, we're sure you mum will be back before you know it.

Your mom deserves a vacation Herman and you will be fine while she is gone!

No fun when the moms go away but it is a great time to get into things and no one is around to tell you no. Also, getting caught up on the sleep works too. She will be back in no time at all with lots of loves for you!!

We never like it when Mom goes away, but we always get lots of extra treats and love when she comes back.

Herman, they always leave the classical station on and Animal Planet, so I can either snooze to Brahms or get all excited when a pet gets rescued!

Katnip Lounge said...

Herman, you may get a bit lonely but remember NOW is the time to counter-surf, sit on the table, and all the other forbidden things. That should keep you busy!

Max said...

Dood, I do that with toys, too. The Woman buys one and gets all excited because SURELY Max will LOVE it. I'm duty bound then to not play with it, but to find something old to focus on. It drives her nuts, and that pleases me.

And dood, whatever you do, don't let the cat sitter actually...sit...on you. She might be thinking in literal terms, you know...

We watched a movie one night Herman, it was called Adventures in Babysitting. Maybe you should see if it is going to be on!

you are a Gemini kitty? I love Geminii's! My Mom is a Libra and I am an Aries Kitty (full of fire!!)

The Island Cats said...

We think your mom is doing everything she can so you won't be too lonely, Herman. We think it's pretty cool that she will leave the TV on for you. Our mom never does that for us!

Eric and Flynn said...

You could always have a house trashing Herman.

You should get the catsitter video, Herman! We have never seen it but we hear cats love it. We are pushin ta get it ourselfs.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Doing a little CATch up work today and wanted to say thank you for you and Karen Jo leaving kind words at my place when my grandma left. Your kind words helps us all to feel a little better when we were sad. What a good friend you are!
Thanks from,
Gracie, Daddie, & Mommie

Hi Herman! We are glad you will have both the cat sitter and someone to come play with you while your mom is gone. We know you will miss her lots but we bet the time will just fly by - just take lots of naps!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

We're sure the cat person will play wif you! And if you're super bored tell your mom to fuel up your boogie mat and come on over!

Sorry your mom has to go on vacation, Herman, but it sounds like she is trying her hardest to makes sure you aren't too upset while she's away. You should TOTALLY tell her tio get the Cat Sitter DVD ... we love it! :)
