Tuxie Tuesday

This is the only time you are going to see me wearing this thing, so take a good look.  I hated every second of wearing it.  Mom has promised that she will only put it on stuffies from now on.  Mom has been neglecting me.  She hasn't played with me for days.

Karen Jo:  I have tried to play with you, but you haven't been interested.  You like to play with your nip toys by yourself, so I just watch.  I have rolled balls for you and tossed you mousies, but you have just ignored them. It seems you would rather have me feed you treats.

I love my treats.  Mom thought it was just the nip treats I wanted so many of, but she has tried the Temptations and the Pounce, and I want lots and lots of them, too.  I haven't gotten any Greenies in a long time.

Karen Jo:  There is only one store in town that carries Greenies and I haven't been there in a while.  I will try to get there tomorrow. At least you are still eating your regular food, as well as gobbling down the treats.

I just like to eat, that's all.  I haven't been getting any fatter, so it's OK.

Karen Jo:  I don't think you have been getting any fatter, but I haven't weighed you in quite a while.  You furchin feels the same size to me.  I like it that you don't bite me any more when I feel it.  It makes petting you more pleasant.

I trust you completely now.  I will let you touch me anywhere, except on my butt.  I still haven't forgotten how you washed me back there.

Karen Jo:  You really needed the washing.  I am sorry that you hated it so much, but I couldn't have you running around with a poopy butt.

I am really glad that I don't have that problem any more.  Life is so much better now.  I love being healthy.

Karen Jo:  I love it, too.

It sounds like you are doing great, Herman! Well, except for the temporary hat debacle. But it's nice to hear that you are healthy, eating, and pretty much behaving like the rest of us kitties!

We're so happy that you're feeling healthy, Herman! You've come a long way and your Mom deserves a lot of credit for making you feel great!

AFSS said...

Glad you are doing so well. Sorry your Mom suffered a bout of temporary insanity and put a hat on you. It must be something about this time of year.

The Island Cats said...

Herman, we hate wearing hats too. We're glad we got to see you in yours, even if it was the last time!!

We're glad you are doing so well!

We think you look cute in your santa hat.

WE would not like to wear a hat, either. We are happy that you are healthy, too!

Caren Gittleman said...

we love that you are healthy too!! Way to go Mom for taking such good care of you.

I must say you handled the hat embarrassment much better than Cody did!

Is the fact that you don't want to play with your Mom because you smelled the cat she cheated with on you the other day? Hmmmmm.....

Wow Herman! You got some great stuff for Christmas!! Mom says Karen Jo probably thinks her best present is that you are so healthy and trusting her now.

Happy New Year from all of us to both of you,

I can't believe you're wearing a hat, Herman! You are way more compliant than any of us!

Hi Herman! 2 things. Well, 3 if ya count "we dont wear outfits either"). First, I usually play "toss an return toys" all dinnertime. But then sometimes I just watch TBT toss for a day or two ta confoose him. Second, if ya get a crusty butt again, do the "butt-scootch" on some carpet. That rubs it RIGHT off!
