Taking It Easy

Oh, I love my ham-mick in the sun puddle.  We have been getting sun puddles every day lately and I love to take my afternoon nap right here.  I lifted my head when I heard the whirr of the camera turning on, but I couldn't be bothered to open my eyes.  I have been a hungry boy lately.

Karen Jo:  Yes, you have.  I have been coming home to find that you have licked either your Medley dish or your Stinky Goodness dish, or both of them clean.  I love it.  Tonight I came home and found your Medley dish completely clean.  I gave you your dinner and you licked your Stinky Goodness dish clean.  Fifteen minutes later, you were ready for lots and lots of treats.  I don't know where you put it all.

I just love to eat, most of the time.  I am glad that you decided not to feed me just before you cooked your steak on Thursday.

Karen Jo:  I decided that it isn't really fair to you to feed you your dinner, then bring out the good stuff for my dinner.  You made the most of it.

I got about six bites of steak before I decided I had enough.  I got my dinner about an hour later.  I like it better this way.  Your lunches have left a lot to be desired.  Mostly I am not the least bit interested.

Karen Jo:  I have been eating stuff out of the freezer.  I will cook again soon, but I am not sure how you will feel about meat loaf.  Don't worry, steak night will come around soon again.

Meat loaf doesn't sound very interesting to me.  I might give it a miss.

Karen Jo: I like it and I haven't made it in a very long time.  I wish I could get a picture of you doing something beside napping.

I am either napping or tearing down the hall at top speed.  You would never get a picture of that.  I also play with my toys while you are at work.  You need to find out how to work the video function on your camera, so you can make that little movie of me asking for treats.

Karen Jo:  I will work on that on my next day off.

Something funny happened tonight.  I was asking Mom for treats, but my nip ball was within paw reach as well.  One time, instead of tapping Mom's hand for a treat, I tapped my nip ball, so Mom thought I wanted to play.  She tried and tried to get me to play and I finally had to go scratch my platform to let her know that what I really wanted was more treats.

Herman, you need a cat cam, so we can see you in action! Clearly you don't care to perform upon request. Although I still like the photos of you chilling.

Herman darling, you're just like me. Mommy said she can't get any pictures of me doing anything but napping. If I happen to be playing with something, by the time she gets the flashy box, I have quit and I have laid down. Getting older shows on me. :-)

You look fabulous in your sun puddle and have a bite of meatloaf. Mommy had a sandwich of cold meatloaf a few weeks ago and my nose was working over time,. So mommy loved the sandwich to where I was, what else? laying down and I had me a good 5 bites.

Glad to see that you made it home safely from my birthday party. Thank you so much for coming. I hope you had a good time. If you get rested up come on back because things are still going strong.
I know it will be hard for you to leave your comfy spot. I have a hamock just like yours, don't you just LOVE it?!

We are glad to hear you have a good appetite Herman.
Ham-Micks and sun puddles are good, but no sun puddles for us. Just lots of wet ones.

Enjoy your easy Sunday in the sun puddle, Herman!

Mr. Herman, we are so impressed how well you have your mom trained! No matter how loudly I scream and cry, I do not get fed every time I ask!!

Herman, we are envious of how much you get to eat. You must have a super duper metabolism.
Try the meatlof. Several of us enjoy it...The Baby even likes it with ketchup!

I know why your Mom gets only pictures of you napping, because when your racing around you would be just a blurr in the picture. It's so much easier to get a good picture napping. So glad you are eating so good. Mmm Steak, that is so good. We get some to when Mom and Dad has it. Enjoy that sun in your ham-mick,

Casper
