Tuxie Tuesday

I was sleepy and Mom caught me mid-yawn.  This picture is from several days ago, but it's just the way I felt today, too.  The weather was very cold and some snowflakes came down.  The sun peeked out occasionally, but not much.  I played with Mom a little bit, but mostly I just wanted to nap.  I didn't even eat as much as usual, though I did a good job making my cheese and treats disappear.

Mom says that I am a very polite kitty.  She had the big Temptations bag open to get me a treat and I stuck my head in it.  I took out one treat and ate it.  It smelled great in there.  Mom put the nip treats in with the Temptations.

Mom invented a new game.  She puts a toy under my warming mat and moves it around, then takes her hand out and I fish out the toy.  Tonight she wasn't fast enough in getting her hand out of  the way and I got her instead of the toy.  She yelped, but she wasn't hurt.  Maybe some more stuff will happen tomorrow.

That looks like one fierce yawn, Herman! I too am a polite kitty - if my human sets out a whole bag of food or treats, I will reach in and pull out only as much as I can chew.

Hi Herman! We have missed visiting with you since mom can't get on the computer much anymore! We are glad you are still doing so well! And we think you look so cute in your picture! Mom plays that game with us too, but under a blanket not a warming mat. But we get her sometimes too - but mom's are good about that stuff and don't usually mind it. And we were not surprised to read you are a polite kitty - we have always pictured you being that way in our minds!!

Days like that, it's nice to be formerly feral, right!

that yawn is EXACTLY what I was doing all day today!
I sure could use a nap.
Your new game with your Mom sounds like a lot of fun!
