Happy Valentine's Day
Karen Jo: I really wanted the smoked eel, but all they had left that wasn't spicy was California roll or tuna cream cheese roll. I like both, but I thought you might enjoy the tuna more, so I brought that one home. It's funny. I haven't had sushi for months, but now I am craving it and had some last week and now I'm having it two days in a row. I am thinking I might have it once a week. It's pretty healthy, especially if I buy the brown rice ones and I like it.
I am in favor of that, I think. Since I haven't had any yet, I don't know if I approve of it or not. Will you give me lots of love and treats today?
Karen Jo: Of course, Herman. I will give you all the treats you want after I get home from work and I will pet you as long as I can at bedtime. Just remember that I eventually have to go to sleep.
If you napped like I do, you wouldn't need so much sleep at night.
Karen Jo: That's true, but I have to go to work to bring home the green papers for your food, treats and litter. Not to mention paying the bills for the heat and water. If you want to keep the life to which you have become so accustomed, you have to let me sleep at night.
I have been pretty good about that. I haven't gotten you up at oh-dark-thirty for breakfast more than once a week lately.
Karen Jo: I appreciate that. Lots of mornings you don't get me up at all. You are content to wait until I have to get up to use the human litter box.
I am almost out of Stinky Goodness.
Karen Jo: I noticed. I will bring you home a couple of the twelve can boxes tomorrow. It is already on my shopping list. Is there anything else you want?
I haven't gotten any new toys since Christmas.
Karen Jo: You scarcely play with the ones you have now. Besides, you already have one of every kind they have at the stores in town. I did get you a new toy bucket, so I don't have to put them in your cube any more. Now you will have two toy buckets and I can move the toys from one to the other as I get them out for you to play with and put them away again.
I played with my Christmas star flashy ball this morning. I haven't seen my nip ball in ages.
Karen Jo: I tossed it into your cube the last time I vacuumed. It's still in there somewhere. I will find it eventually, as I get the other toys out.
I don't get enough nip.
Karen Jo: I put new nip on your scratchers every month. I feed you at least some nip treats every day. Ask your friends if they think I should put new nip on the scratchers more often. If they think so, then I will do it. I really don't know how long it lasts.
OK, gang, let's have some opinions. I think I should get new nip every week; Mom thinks once a month is enough. How often do you get new nip?
