Karen Jo: I am very sorry. I could make a long list of minor complaints and sound very whiny, but basically, I just haven't felt up to blogging lately. I really will do better.
Mom has been coming home from work and doing what she has to do, then going to bed instead of blogging. On her days off when she could blog all evening, she just lies on her bed and falls asleep watching TV.
Karen Jo: And who has been right beside me on the bed, demanding his petting sessions?
Me, of course. I am not about to pass up an opportunity like that. You don't always pet me enough, though.
Karen Jo: You let me know about it Thursday night. I petted you for almost an hour, but when I quit, you turned your head and gave me a baleful glare until I started petting you again. I finally had to stop and go to sleep. Friday night would have been quite a sight for anyone looking. You use your paws to push my hand around until I am petting just the right spot. I tried to pet your chest, as you usually like and you pushed my hand down. You were lying next to me, three-quarters on your back, head turned toward the TV, front paws folded against your chest, your near back leg sticking straight up in the air and your far back leg sprawled out to the side with me rubbing your lower belly. I couldn't see it, but I bet you had that blissed-out look on your face that you get when you are really enjoying something. It didn't last long, though.
I got sleepy and my back leg got tired, so I pushed you away.
Karen Jo: You must have been really sleepy. I tried petting your chest again and you pushed me away.
The food has been pretty good lately. I wasn't really interested in the pork roast and only had one little bite. I asked for treats again while the steak was cooking, but Mom only gave me one. It was for the best. I ate lots of little bites of steak. It was worth waiting for. Mom also had pasta and chicken with cream sauce and I got some of the pasta. I didn't want the chicken, just the pasta. I did want some of the chicken with cheese on it, though. We had that yesterday and today. Mom brought home sushi for tomorrow, but I don't think I am getting any.
Karen Jo: I am trying something new called crunchy dragon roll. I have to check to see if it has spicy sauce on it before I offer you any. If it isn't spicy, you may have some. I have never offered you sushi before, because I haven't been eating it much at all lately and the last time I had it, it was spicy.
Mom did remember to bring me home new litter and I got all fresh litter. I jumped in as soon as she finished pouring it into the box. Sometimes I sit and watch her scoop the box so I can use it as soon as she finishes. I have been a good boy mostly about eating up my Stinky Goodness and Medley, so I am getting lots and lots of treats. Mom brought home a new kind yesterday called Friskies Natural Sensations, salmon flavor. I like them.
Karen Jo: No surprise there. The only thing you haven't been doing a lot of lately is playing with me. All the extra snuggling has been great, though. Now if only I could take care of your stinky bum.
Mom! You are embarrassing me.
You are always getting little bits stuck in your pantaloons and you act like you are being murdered if I try to wash you. You even give me the mancat fight yowl.
I hate being washed and you know it. I eventually take care of matters.
Karen Jo: Yes, you do, but it would be much faster if you would let me do it.
