Mancat Monday

Here I am just relaxing.  Mom had just given me my pill and I had just eaten my treats in the little PTU.  I just plopped down after munching and Mom took my picture.  I haven't been very cooperative about getting brushed lately.  Sometimes I just walk away from Mom while she is brushing me and go somewhere, usually behind my platform, where she can't get at me.  She doesn't get mad, just reminds me that if I don't let her brush me, I could get mats again.  I haven't had a mat in a long time, so maybe I have forgotten what a pain they can be.

Karen Jo:  You let me give you a good brushing today, so I think you are OK there.  I didn't find any mats forming.  Now that your fur is not dry any more, but healthy and shiny, maybe it won't mat as easily.  You are also grooming yourself more and that should help.

I still don't take a complete tongue bath like most cats, but I do work on one area for a while and I pick a different area each time.  My thin spots are almost all grown back in again.  Mom didn't give me my treats last night.

Karen Jo:  You asked for treats as soon as I came through the door.  I had to use the litter box room first and you joined me there, as you usually do.  Then you asked for dinner and never asked me for treats again.  I think you ate so many the night before that you went off them just a little.  You had plenty of treats tonight.

Yeah, I love my treats.  I played with my toys quite a bit last night and today, which made Mom glad.  I hadn't played much in days.

Karen Jo:  You go back and forth between playing with your toys and ignoring them.

Mom cooked some real roast beef again, not that pot roast stuff.  I have been helping her eat it.

Karen Jo:  You do get really interested every time you smell me warming it up.  You hopped up in my chair again when I was bringing my plate to the table. I think you keep hoping that I will just put the plate in front of you and let you have it all.

That would be really cool.

Karen Jo:  You know that you wouldn't eat more than a few bites of it.  Even when you really want the roast beef, and I give you as many little bites as you want, you usually quit after five bites.

I still think it would be neat to sit in your chair and eat off your plate.

Herman, you remind us of Deli - sweet and loving but wants no part of being brushed! Trust us, you don't want to get shaved!

Herman, we've never had roast beef! We think we need to try it!

Caren Gittleman said...

I have to agree with Herman...he needs a place AT THE TABLE (if he can't eat off of your plate!)

Mom had to get lots of mats out of Timothy when she finally got home from the hospital. He did NOT like it! I am glad I have short furs.
Happy Monday!

Yeah, I don't get why humans never set a proper place at the table for us! And then they complain when we have "bad manners." Heh.
